Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine getting Dreadnought DLC next week

New $10 content for Relic's sci-fi shooter brings new multiplayer mode, three new maps; free capture and control mode coming to all players.


In December, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine ushered in its first downloadable content in the form of the Chaos Unleashed pack. However, the sci-fi third-person shooter isn't finished growing just yet.

Publisher THQ has announced a new add-on for the game titled The Dreadnought. Available on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, and the PC on January 24 for $10, the content adds a new multiplayer mode and three fresh maps. It will be available in Europe on all platforms on January 25.

The new mode up for grabs in the content is Dreadnought Assault. In this game mode, teams will work to capture and control a central location. The victorious will be granted the help of a player-controlled Dreadnought, armed with high-powered weapons and tasked with capturing key locations to score points for its side.

In addition to the new game mode, the Dreadnought DLC includes three fresh multiplayer maps: Desolation, Dome Mechanicus, and Chem Refinery. New achievements and trophies are up for grabs in the content as well.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine gamers who don't purchase the Dreadnought DLC will also score new content. A new multiplayer capture and control mode will be available to all next week for free. This team-focused mode has gamers capturing and defending areas to amass points.
