The first content update to Ritual Entertainment's SiN Episodes: Emergence went live earlier today, the developer announced, and is now available for download. The biggest addition in the patch is the new Arena game mode, a single-player option that pits gamers against a horde of SinTEK enemies where high scores are determined by surviving the longest. In addition, the patch includes four new maps for use in the Arena mode and a number of bug fixes. Players can download the patch by restarting their Steam clients.

First in a number of planned free downloads for Ritual's shooter adds Arena Mode to game, new maps.

Steam continues to rock! Free content is always good, especially when it adds hours of more gameplay! Thank you, Ritual :)
Nice, content update for a $19..99 game, more reason for me to pick it up next trip to the store! (that and I cant find my original Sin CD, boxed version of Episodes includes it as a bonus)
I was kinda surprised that Ritual hired Bianca Beauchamp to be Elexis Sinclaire. I wonder how long they looked for a woman that matched the game character not in only looks but in the bust measurements.
Arena mode is addicting as heck. The reason it's not online is because it's not a multiplayer mode; simple as that. The multiplayer maps and SDK are coming in the next major patch, and again, it will be free. I'm cool with dropping $19.99 on these episodes when they keep patching me up with new playable stuff in the months between.
The arena mode is awesome, I was blasting through it this morning. Good Stuff, makes a good game even better if you ask me.
