Double Fine Bringing Mars, Bears, Loot to Trenched

And by Trenched, of course, we mean Iron Brigade, the new worldwide name for Trenched.

No Caption Provided

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?

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.

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.

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.

Russian martian mech-men?

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.

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.
