Dead to Rights: Retribution, a re-imagining of the 2002 third-person action game marks the franchise’s debut on the Playstation 3 and it’s a lukewarm one according to critical reception so far (64/100 on Metacritic). Now that it has released all around the world, Namco Bandai decided it’s prime time to announce that the game will receive downloadable content under the title of “GAC Pack” in less than a month.
The GAC Pack will add two new completely different gameplay modes to the fold. One is a new mission called “Assault on the 87th Precinct” which allows players to experience the story from the Grant City Anti-Crime’s perspective, as they take on the roles of the GAC Sniper, Brawler, and Tank characters tasked with closing in on the Grant City Police Department stronghold and containing the police force inside.
The other is “Riot Control Mode” in which Jack Slate and his canine partner Shadow go up against wave after wave of increasingly difficult GAC enemies. The goal here is to crack skulls with bullets or fists in a speedy and stylish manner which then nets you points and achievements. To show off your badassery, leaderboards will keep track of score.
Additionally, the GAC Pack will also include “Jack Pack” and “Shadow Pack” which were previously exclusive to pre-orders. These two will add armor for Jack, stealth camouflage for Shadow, an “action mode” with explosive rounds gunplay, and a “noir mode” with a black, white and red graphic filter.
The GAC downloadable content will be available on the Playstation Network for $4.99 starting May 26 in Europe and June 1 in the United States.
