CastleStorm's First DLC Expansion, Outcast to Savior, Assaults the Wii U eShop This Week
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Second add-on "The Warrior Queen" still planned
Mel Kirk of Zen Studios has confirmed that this DLC will cost $2.99 / €2.99 / £2.39.
The arrival of CastleStorm on the Wii U eShop last year likely delighted Nintendo download gamers that had been eagerly anticipating the Zen Studios title; its blend of tower defence and 2D physics-based action contributed towards an undoubtedly fun experience, and we awarded it 8/10 in our review.
The release had been delayed in comparison to other platforms, so naturally the extra DLC has also taken a little longer to arrive. The good news is that the first of the two major expansions, "Outcast to Savior", will arrive on the eShop tomorrow in both North America and Europe. Below is an excerpt from Zen Studios' press release explaining what's on offer.
From Outcast to Savior features a brand new Royal Guard faction, new environments, an unlikely Hero, 20 new battles, new weapons, new trophies and Skirmish & Survival levels! Lead your army into battle across stunning new environments including Stonecrest, The Royal Airport, The Skyship Harbor and the Bladgard Icefields in your quest to capture the mighty Viking warrior, Chief Ramhorn.
The second DLC expansion, "The Warrior Queen", is still planned for Wii U but is yet to receive a confirmed release date. No price has been given in the press release, but for comparison the same DLC cost 240 Microsoft points on Xbox 360 and $2.99USD on Steam in Summer 2013.
