Candygun Games’ Dead Block, a tower defense-style game set around a zombie apocalypse, has received its first DLC pack on Live Arcade. Now available for 240 MS Points, the pack includes four new levels (Motel, Office Building, Slaughterhouse, and Turkish Bath) that are playable in both single and multiplayer modes. Also included are customized intro cutscenes and updated leaderboards.
Infamous 2 will be getting a new single-player DLC pack later this year, Festival of Blood. Scheduled to launch on PSN in time for Halloween, the downloadable adventure will introduce vampires to New Marais. After being bitten, Cole has a single night to track down and kill the vampires’ leader.
Konami’s PS3-exclusive No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise has shipped to retail. Developed by AQ Interactive, this revamped iteration of the original features Move support, Rebout Mode for refighting defeated enemies, new boss battles, improved AI, new levels, and the DLC Viewer Mode, which allows access to HD versions of the game’s cutscenes. The Move motion controls will allow players to vary their beam katana attacks by altering their grip on the controller and timing of their moves.
Ubisoft is going all-in on Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Portable successor, PS Vita. The studio has announced six titles currently in development, including some from their biggest franchises.

Not content with a Star Wars-based MMO, BioWare has announced that they are now tackling Warhammer with the new Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes. Based off of Age of Reconing, Wrath of Heroes is a player-versus-player Play4Free title feature three-team, 18-player arena battles. Players will be able to use a “variety of characters and iconic Warhammer Online heroes, settings, and weapons” as well as switch between heroes and teams mid-battle in a chaotic form of jump-in/jump-out play.
Funcom’s latest MMO, The Secret World, will be available next April for the PC. The EA-published title will take place in a contemporary setting, but one filled with secret societies, vampires, and other mythological creatures. Players will be free to explore real-world locations and will no longer work their way through the traditional class-and-level structure.
