Tired of tethering airplanes to other airplanes in Just Cause 2? Of course not. That question was rhetorical. And also ridiculous. But are you tired of shooting guys in the head with regular, dumb ol' pistols and machine guns? Are conventional means of dispatching poorly voiced soldiers feeling particularly conventional? Looking for some firepower that's a little less "hmm" and a little more "horrific collateral damage?"
Avalanche has your back! The Swedish developer announced that the Black Market 'Boom' Pack, the second downloadable add-on for Just Cause 2, is available right now. Right this second! In the time it took you to load up this story, you could have sat down at your Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 and finished downloading three new weapons for the game!
So, what armaments does Rico have to look forward to in the DLC?
- The Quad Rocket Launcher; half Rocket Launcher, half shotgun. Comes from the Painkiller school of weapon design ("What if this lightning gun could toss ninja stars too?").
- The Cluster Bomb Launcher; for those times when you think, "This grenade launcher is great, but I wish it was more... clustery?"
- The Air Propulsion Gun; a jet engine modified into a cannon that can blast away soldiers and vehicles alike. Clearly, we have been using jet engines for the wrong things.
And all this can be yours for the low, low price of 160 Microsoft Points or $1.99 on PSN.
What do you think, Bombers? Is the price right for these new weapons? And what do you want to see released to get you back into Just Cause 2?
