Upcoming DLC Packs Give Dead Rising 2's Chuck New Wardrobe Options

Dead Rising 2 senior producer Josh Bridge laid out some of the DLC planned for Dead Rising 2 in a post on the PlayStation Blog. Four packs--originally offered as pre-order bonuses across multiple retailers--staggered over the coming four weeks, give the game's lead character, Chuck, new outfits with associated special powers. Though announced on the PlayStation Blog, Shacknews confirmed with Capcom that the same packs will be available simultaneously on Xbox Live.

First up is the "Psychopath" pack, due on October 12. It offers a horror movie look with a soiled apron and sinister mask. Donning these makes Chuck stronger and deadlier with classic "tools of the trade" like the chainsaw, cleavers, axes, and machetes.

Next up is the "Soldier of Fortune" pack, which casts Chuck as an action hero sporting fatigues, black tank top, and face paint. While wearing these, his ability with all firearms is enhanced. "Soldier of Fortune" will arrive on October 19.

On October 26 the "Sports Fan" DLC arrives. Paying homage to sports fans around the world, it lets Chuck drink all he wants and never get sick. He also becomes more lethal with sports weapons and gets has a better chance when gambling.

Finally, there's the "Ninja" pack which drops on November 2. The full black stealth outfit makes Chuck all but undetectable to the zombies and extra deadly with swords and thrown weapons.
