Prey hunts down free maps, skins on XBL
Five multiplayer characters, four multiplayer maps for Human Head's topsy-turvy shooter now on Marketplace; Madden picture packs also available.
Back in mid-September, 3D Realms did the unthinkable during a time of game companies doing backflips over microtransactions--it said new content for the Xbox 360 game Prey would be free. Today, the company made good on its promise and let loose the first postrelease content for the game gratis on Xbox Live Marketplace.
Gamers who have overcome Prey's motion-sickness-inducing perspective switches can now download a quintet of multiplayer skins and a quartet of multiplayer maps--all of which are free. The content is available in all regions except Japan. A list of the new Prey content is below.
Marketplace was also flooded with content from another Xbox 360 game today. With the NFL season five weeks deep, sports fans now have a better idea of whether each Sunday means one step closer to the playoffs or just another embarrassing beating (ahem--Raiders). Either way, gamers can still support their teams with a new batch of Madden NFL-branded picture packs, according to the blog of Xbox Live's Major Nelson. The remaining NFL team picture packs (six were previously released) are reportedly available for 60 Marketplace points ($0.75) each.
