Kameo co-opted on Xbox Live
Free update gives Rare's adventure game online and system link co-op play, two new 200-point costume downloads also available.
Recently, the Xbox 360 version of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has been at the center of a small controversy. While the universally praised game itself isn't the subject of the spat, a content update to it is, as players have protested that Microsoft is charging $2.50 for an in-game item on Xbox Live Marketplace.
Today, though, players of another Xbox 360 game got a whole new gameplay mode gratis. Microsoft announced that starting today, three new content packs for Kameo: Elements of Power are available via Xbox Live. One of them, the Kameo Co-op Pack, is a free download for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, and it updates the game with "two-player cooperative gameplay ... over Xbox Live and System Link." Currently, the game only has split-screen co-op.
Two other content packs for Kameo are available--for the price of 200 Xbox Live Marketplace points, or around $2.50. The Kameo Masquerade Pack updates the game with 10 new costumes for the game's heroine, including "recognizable outfits from classic Rare titles." The Fright Warrior Pack also contains costumes for Kameo and her non-player warriors. All the outfits have "fantastic and scary" themes, according to Microsoft. Costumes can be accessed via the bonus menu in the last page of the Wotnot book.
