I enjoyed playing through “Enslaved: Odyssey to the West” but wasn’t sure if the DLC for this game would add anything new to the game. Boy, was I wrong! “Pigsy’s Perfect 10” not only lets you play as Pigsy and his side-story. But that’s not all! You also have the option to experience both the side story and the original game in 3D! It will be available later this year for 800 MS Points on Xbox LIVE or $9.99 on PlayStation Network.
On downloading the DLC, the core game will receive a TriOviz for Games Technology update. If you have a 3D-enabled TV, you can play play the game and DLC using Stereo 3D Active Shutter Glasses. For non-3D TVs, you can purchase the TriOviz INFICOLOR 3D glasses later this year to play the game with Stereo 3D vision.
Depending on the cost of these glasses, I might just spring the money up for a pair to test it out and see how it works out with the DLC and full game. If you have not picked up the game yet, check out my review and see what you think.
NAMCO BANDAI GAMES ANNOUNCES “PIGSY’S PERFECT 10” PREMIUM DLC FOR ENSLAVED™: ODYSSEY TO THE WEST™
New DLC Includes Side Story Starring Pigsy Character
and Allows Options to Play Both the DLC and Original Game in 3D
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (Oct. 28, 2010) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced details for the premium downloadable content (DLC) for ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™. The DLC will include “Pigsy’s Perfect 10,” a new side story where players take on the role of Pigsy, the unforgettable character who was a non-playable ally from the main game. In addition, players will have options to experience both the new side story and the original game in 3D.
Pigsy, the comical porcine character known for his one-line zingers and questionable hygiene, finally gets his time in the spotlight. The Titan Graveyard is a lonely place and Pigsy really needs some companionship beyond the mechs that roam the area. He dreams of the perfect woman and embarks on a mission to build one from scratch using scrap parts he finds around the junkyard. In contrast to the main game which features strong, capable Monkey as the playable character, Pigsy is much more of a lover than a fighter. Pigsy’s gameplay will have a completely different gameplay dynamic, with a focus on stealth and sharp-shooting. He has plenty of tricks up his sleeves including a far-reaching hookshot, trusty sniper rifle, various grenades and devices, Trouble Vision eye piece and the aid of his trusty mechanical sidekick Truffles.
In addition, when a player downloads the new DLC, the core game will receive a TriOviz® for Games Technology update, enabling all aspects of ENSLAVED: Odyssey to the West to be experienced in eye-popping 3D. The lush environments and action packed fighting sequences will literally jump off the screen, providing players with an exciting, immersive experience. Fans that have a 3D-enabled television can play the DLC in 3D utilizing Stereo 3D Active Shutter Glasses.
For gamers that do not have a 3D-enabled television, Stereo 3D vision will be available on all 2D HDTV sets through the use of innovative TriOviz INFICOLOR® 3D glasses. These glasses will be available for purchase via http://www.trioviz.com in fall 2010.
TriOviz® for Games Technology adds incredible depth-of-field while maintaining the integrity of the original gameplay and visuals. Players can experience both the main game as well as the new Pigsy story in 3D. The retailer bonus alternate costumes for Monkey or Trip will also appear in 3D for those that have them already.
Developed by Ninja Theory Ltd., the post-apocalyptic action-adventure features influences and contributions from top music and film industry talent. ENSLAVED combines beautifully rendered graphics and captivating music with seamless animation and engrossing gameplay to deliver a premier entertainment experience.
