Robots and pugilism are this week’s Xbox Live marketplace themes. Gamers can download and play though a robot revolution in the latest content expansion pack for Borderlands and try their hand at EA Sports’ hand-to-hand fighting game with new content added to Xbox Live today.
Announced in early August, Borderlands' Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution (800 Microsoft points; $10) content adds multiple new missions and enemies--including Claptrap-ified monsters--to shoot and loot, as well as new boss battles. Additionally, the content lets gamers earn an additional two skill points (for a total of 61 possible points) and three supplementary backpack slots for holstering more weapons.
Would-be purchasers should know that Borderlands is mapping out a Game of the Year Edition on October 12, which will include all previously released downloadable content for $59.99.
Switching to the demo front, a sampler for EA Sports MMA is now available to download. The trial gives players a first glimpse and feel for EA's competing brand to THQ’s popular--but uncertain--UFC series.
