Ditto - was looking forward to some co-op Ork stomping.

To be honest, I'm much disappointed by THQ and Relic...

THQ are dogshit cowboys, they been banging on about this for ages and fuck it up?

Really it should have been in the game to start with, why wouldnt it have co op play included already? i bet they just rushed the main game out unfinished so that it would be out 2 weeks before Gears of war 3 to try and shift a decent amount of copies as no one would buy it when gears 3 was available.
They probably didnt want another flop game that they seem to be good at making.

This was posted on offical Space Marine forums by THQSledgehammer:

"We have zero control on when and where PSN & Xbox Live release the update. It looks like PSN started to push the update to their servers yesterday at 7:00pm PST. I am honestly surprised the Xbox version hasn't been pushed yet as they normally release between 2:00am-6:00am PST. They should be pushing it live any moment now. The PC version is slated for 10:01pm PST as that is when Steam releases new content."

It seems that Microsoft already has the dlc, but they haven't released it for somereason.
Real life is just a crappy game.

Anyone else notice the Legion of the Damned armour pack at 11 seconds. This a new unlockable?

THQSledgehammer:

"Prior to the release of the Xbox 360 version of the Exterminatus DLC it came to our attention that there was a connectivity issue that needed to be fixed. We have taken the difficult decision to delay the title update and DLC release to repair this issue and ensure that the mode is functioning as intended when we release it. We will share a projected live date for this content on the Space Marine community site as soon as possible."

It seems that there is now bigger problems than Microsoft being lazy.
Real life is just a crappy game.

this was relics/ thq mistake not xbox. going to think twice about buying thier games as this game though great to play ahas been not patched and had little or misleading info about it. weapon achievement was supposed to be unlocked via coop but thats not true either. they need sort themselves out if they r to come into the console market.

I would rather they delay a DLC to fix a know issue to them, rather than push it out. Relic hasn't let me down yet, and they didn't with Space Marine! I'll get this as soon as its available!

I have never had a glitch with this game, neither has anyone else I know. Also I would prefer a delayed working dlc than an on time glitchy one.

I would be disappointed but after reading that weapon challenges can NOT be completed in this mode, my interest dropped off dramatically.
