In Split/Second, Black Rock Studios created an epic action arcade racer, set in a made-for-TV city, rigged with explosives and home to some of the most thrilling racing action and biggest set pieces this console generation.
If the full game left you wanting more, then today’s updates to the PSN Store and XBL Marketplace sees the release of the ‘Survival At The Rock DLC pack’. This contains a whole new circuit called The Minepit and a new game mode – Survival Race. The new mode is similar to the Survival mode contained in the original game, but instead of racing to overtake the explosive trucks in a checkpoint fashion, this time it’s competitive racing action over a set number of laps, with of course the explosive barrel-spilling trucks providing added excitement.
The DLC is available today for £5.49/€6.99/$6.99 or 560 MS Points.
This isn’t the end of Black Rock’s support for Split/Second as there are two more DLC packs already lined up, the first of which lands next week; the Deadline Pack contains four new vehicles and another game mode – Deadline mode which sees you racing against the clock, which you can freeze by picking up items on the circuit. Secondly the following week there is a Quarry Onslaught pack, with yet another circuit and additional game mode playable in both single player and multiplayer, which sees players racing on any circuits against each other with the missile firing helicopters from Air Strike mode reappearing, but this time in a competitive race mode rather than against the clock.
