When news broke that Ghostbusters
was finally receiving a patch achievement hunters the world over let loose a sigh of relief. Now news has been leaked that the dropped DLC for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
is being put back up on the marketplace for a limited time.
The reveal posting from Kalina, an administrator for the official Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
I know it’s been a long time since I’ve been on, but I have good news to make up for it! And by the way, I was pretty much traveling (for work, not for fun) the entire months of March and April this year. Then it got really busy with E3 coming up. Can’t believe we are already in June, time really flies.
Fanboy0202 and others - thanks for keeping the faith! When I do have time to pop on, I read this thread, means a lot to me. Since I have a different position than MUA1 days, I don’t have time to read all the threads but that’s what Newslad is for and he keeps me tuned in to the major topics and the big asks from the fans, so I’m looped in through him. And by the way, I had something to do with bringing Newslad back.
So here is the news - and this is part of what was keeping me super busy behind the scenes - we did it! We made our case (your fan support helped), begged, pleaded, cajoled and didn’t give up and were able to convince the ‘powers that be’ to bring MUA2 DLC back!! This is really happening. And you are the FIRST to know.
In terms of timing, now that it’s been approved, we need to coordinate to get this back up on Xbox Live and PSN. I am hoping we can get this up on XBL before the 4th of July but that might be wishful thinking - we are trying. As soon as I know definite timing, I will let you know.
And this is important - I want to make sure this is super clear from the beginning - all good things must come to an end and we are only allowed to have the MUA2 DLC back up through the end of 2010. So there will be about a 6 month window to download the content again, and then it will be gone for good. It’s not a strategy and not our choice, this is just what is allowed so I’m giving you all the advance notice I can.
On other questions… there’s not going to be a Gold Edition, but we are able to get the DLC content back via XBL and PSN. I actually had a Gold Edition cover ready to go with - surprise surprise - Psylocke on the front, maybe I can find a way to post that. It just didn’t get bought into though, simple as that. :-(
Well, that’s it for now! I’m back from all the travels and E3 craziness so I’ll try to be on a bit more in the near future. But remember you have Newslad, I’ll only pop in from time to time. Bringing MUA2 DLC back is major news and I wanted you to hear it first and hear it from me! I hope that lets you know that your voices really are heard.
So from July until the end of the year, you can download the Character and Sim Mission Pack
to finally achieve the full 100%. After 2010, the opportunity will be forever lost. Considering that a lot of gamers, myself included, believed this DLC would never be available again even 6 months of availability is better then nothing.
