PSA - Marvel: UA 1 & 2 DLC Removed on Dec 31st

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
This is a public service announcement to remind you that the DLC for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 (Xbox 360) is being taken off the Games Marketplace on December 31st, 2010, as explained in our original post at the start of this month.

The "Character & Sim Mission Pack" was only going to be available for a limited amount of time due to the expiration of the license agreement with Marvel. The content was originally removed on December 31st, 2009 after a short time on the Marketplace, but after a huge outcry from gamers over its disappearance, the content was reinstated in July 2010. This time though, the removal of the content will be permanent.

The "Character & Sim Mission Pack" is available here for 800 MSP. There are eight achievements worth a total of 250g associated with this DLC. Be aware that if you wish to continue playing with gamers who have bought the DLC but do not wish to buy it yourself, you will have to download the free "Character & Sim Mission Pack Teaser" from here in order to do so.

Activision's Dam Amrich also hinted in his blog that the "Juggernaut Playable Character" DLC may also be removed after December 31st. This character is available here for 160 MSP. Similarly to the previously mentioned DLC, if you wish to continue playing with gamers who have bought the character but do not wish to buy it yourself, you will have to download the free "Juggernaut Playable Character Teaser" from here in order to do so.

In an additional gift to gamers, the DLC for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (Xbox 360) has also returned until the end of the month. It makes much more sense to grab both the "Playable Hero Pack" and "Playable Villain Pack" from the Marketplace while you can, rather than trying in vain to locate the game's Gold Edition. The hero pack carries five achievements worth 100g, whilst the villain pack carries seven achievements worth 150g.

The hero pack is available from here, and the villain pack from here, priced individually at 480 MSP. Alternatively, you can buy the two packs in a bundle for 800 MSP. Do you want to continue playing with gamers who have bought the character packs but do not wish to buy them yourself? Then download the free "Playable Character Teaser Pack" from here in order to do so.

I know that many people are reaching a points crisis, what with all of the "Countdown to 2011" deals on XBL, but you can't say that we didn't warn you.
