Battlestations: Pacific won the battle against critics when it debuted on the Xbox 360 and PC in May. And while it has yet to be seen whether the second installment in Eidos' WWII strategy franchise will fare equally as well against US consumers' pocketbooks, the publisher today announced a volley of add-on packs slated for deployment in July.
The first downloadable add-on, titled the Mustang Pack, is now available on Microsoft's platforms for 160 points ($2). The DLC includes six new units, including the P-51 Mustang bomber escort and the US Navy's Alaska Class warship for the Allies and the Super Yamato Class battleship for the Imperial Japanese Navy. The pack also includes 18 new pieces of nose art, which can be used both in the single- and multiplayer modes.
On July 23, Eidos will deploy the Carrier Battles Map Pack for 800 Microsoft points ($10). The pack includes four new maps that can be played in all five of Battlestations: Pacific's multiplayer modes. The maps play out on four distinctive battlegrounds in the Pacific theater: Midway, the Philippine Islands, Leyte Gulf, and the Aleutian Islands.
