If you’ve already pushed back the technological menace in Iron Brigade (er, Trenched), Double Fine Productions is preparing the first set of downloadable content, Rise of the Martian Bear.

The studio revealed the first details on the content at a small event in San Francisco last Friday.

Rise of the Martian Bear will include four new missions set on Mars, and presumably an explanation for why we’ve left Earth’s atmosphere. If it don't want to provide one, I'm cool with that, too. And, yes, there will be bears.

There’s no release date for Rise of the Martian Bear, but Double Fine said it wouldn’t be far off.

Before that happens, however, Trenched has to become Iron Brigade. Alongside the title update that makes the name change official (the result of a copyright dispute), players will gain access to new loot and a survival game mode.

I thought you go to space in the 10th iteration. Where's Drenched?

#6 Posted by Manburger (56 posts) -

There Will Be Bears was not as critically acclaimed as its predecessor, but it struck a chord with the Russian-Martian Batman demographic

I think they're going to need Russian Martian Batman to win this fight!

Edit: I am displeased that I was not the first to drop the RMB bomb. I shouldn't be surprised though.

As long as I get a cannon that shoots rabid grizzly bears I'll be happy

Still waiting for it to actually come out here :(

#13 Posted by clumsyninja1 (817 posts) -

#14 Posted by BlueOysters (2 posts) -

Great, now continue porting Brutal Legend, Stacking, and Trenched to PC since Costume Quest is now on steam and THQ isn't stopping you now.

#15 Posted by bgradio (5 posts) -

Iron Brigade is a game about... love?

#16 Posted by OmegaPirate (5523 posts) -

STILL not out here in England :(

#17 Posted by This_Dude (294 posts) -

Excellent, spacesuit from costume quest. More Trenched is always welcome in my Xbox.

#18 Posted by Nocall (353 posts) -

*cough* PC.

#19 Posted by Wandrecanada (401 posts) -

@This_Dude: I was gonna say... Isn't that the robot suit from Costume Quest?

#20 Posted by Cybexx (1147 posts) -

I hope we get to see spaceships with legs.

#21 Posted by avidwriter (667 posts) -

PC Version?

#22 Posted by coakroach (2488 posts) -

I still think they should have renamed it Judy Denched

#23 Posted by AlisterCat (5470 posts) -

How about they talk about releasing it here before DLC we can't buy?

#24 Posted by RYNO9881 (625 posts) -

Great article....Rock god.

#25 Posted by White_Silhouette (470 posts) -

I'm sad that the DLC is not under water and called Drenched. Also the lack of a release date is not surprising as there is still no info on when it's coming out for those in Europe.

#26 Posted by Gnorbooth (275 posts) -

It must be true than. There is more love in space!!!

#27 Posted by DeviTiffany (413 posts) -

Still hoping this game comes out on PC one day

#28 Posted by megalowho (955 posts) -

All game franchises should go to Mars at some point.

Get your mech's ass to Mars.

#30 Posted by Brackynews (4039 posts) -

But are they Russian Martian Bears?

Inquiring Batmen want to know.

#31 Posted by iAmJohn (6107 posts) -

Iron Brigade is an awful name.

#32 Posted by eccentrix (1486 posts) -

I remember when this game was going to come out. We were all so young and optimistic...

#35 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

hrmmmm..... I loved playing trenched, I dont know if I really feel like going back to it though, maybe I'll be more excited closer to it's release.

#36 Posted by Tesla (1904 posts) -

I'm down for more Iron Trenchgade.

#37 Posted by Lingxor (422 posts) -

MAKE THIS GAME FUCKING HARD. I DON'T PLAY GAMES TO HAVE A GOOD TIME.

#38 Posted by MEATBALL (3020 posts) -

This news is too awesome.

#39 Posted by Rirse (258 posts) -

Still a terrible name change, but otherwise I like the look of this DLC.

#40 Posted by defenestr8ed (36 posts) -

Russian martian mech-men?

#41 Posted by HT101 (1151 posts) -

I just wonder if this takes place in the same timeline as Red Alert 3. There are Russian bears, so why shouldn't it be in the same timeline? Someone prove me wrong on this line of thought.

#42 Posted by Jethuty (1023 posts) -

#47 Posted by Grilledcheez (3942 posts) -

Finally some DLC...I'm ready

#48 Posted by DarkHeroZark (175 posts) -

You say "space bears", I say "How much?"

#49 Posted by TheFakePsychic (186 posts) -

Oh my god that guy driving the Mars Trench is in the Robot Costume from Costume Quest. That is the best thing ever. Ever.

This is/has/will be one of the few games that make me genuinely wish I had a 360 to play it on.

I loved Trenched, and salivated for a couple of months at the idea of having more of it to play, but at this point? I don't know, it seems kind of "too little, too late". I haven't turned the gamer on in months, and once you move on from a game, it's harder to come back.

That said, we will see. I loved the hell out of this game, and it's one of the few arcade titles I've gotten 200/200 on, so perhaps I will end up playing this too, haha.
