At the tail end of August, Microsoft and Ruffian Games rolled out the first add-on content for the open-world platforming shooter Crackdown 2. As its name implies, the Toy Box downloadable content offered gamers a number of in-game goodies with which to defend Pacific City, including the Agency ATV and Squad Chopper vehicles. Today, Microsoft announced another round of DLC, with the focus this time being on co-op and competitive play.

The Deluge add-on will be available November 16 and is headlined by the titular new mode, which pits up to four players against increasingly difficult waves of enemies. Also included in the pack is Capture the Orb mode, which is a new take on the classic capture-the-flag game type and sees up to 16 supersoldiers tossing buildings and dodging explosives to score points. The pack also includes updates to vehicles and weapons, new achievements, and avatar awards.

The premium version of Deluge will cost gamers 560 Microsoft points ($7). However, a free version of the pack is also available and includes the Capture the Orb competitive game type as well as a single-player version of the Deluge cooperative mode.

Along with announcing the Deluge add-on, Microsoft took the lid off of Crackdown 2: Project Sunburst. Designed for the Windows Phone 7 operating system, Project Sunburst is a tower-defense-style game in which players can defend any real-world location from invading Freaks and Cell Terrorists seen in Crackdown 2. Further, by accomplishing missions in Project Sunburst, gamers will receive perks in Deluge mode for the Xbox 360 game.

Crackdown 2: Project Sunburst is slated to be available later this month, and Microsoft has not yet announced pricing information. For more on the Xbox 360 game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
