The "Frontier Colonies Map Pack" DLC has now been released a day later than planned for Section 8: Prejudice (GFWL), although it appears that the DLC does not add any new achievements, unlike its counterpart on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Just to serve as a quick reminder:
The Frontier Colonies map pack comes with two new multiplayer maps, Desolation and Overseer. Desolation is a parched desert world haunted by the remains of a failed colonization attempt. Overseer is home to military facilities overlooking a habitable forest valley. Each map is playable in both multiplayer and offline play for all game modes.The DLC costs $3.99 / £2.75 and is available to download from here.
