Microsoft unveils new PDZ premium pack

First premium content bundle in the works for Rare's FPS, with new bots and maps a-go-go - more to follow

Microsoft has just announced a new premium bundle of content for its flagship launch shooter Perfect Dark Zero. Although Ms Dark's adventures haven't perhaps set the world on fire in quite the way MS and Rare expected, the new content should give PDZ a whole new lease of life.

The bundle is set to add in four new multiplayer maps for the shooter and, apparently, it's just the first of a wave of new downloads Microsoft is ready to make available to big up the game.

For existing PDZ players, a new auto update will add eight bots to multiplayer proceedings, including a venge bot who targets the last player with a kill, a judge bot who attacks the current leader and a bully bot, who targets players at the bottom of the kill ladder.

Anyone fancying a sample will get a chance to try out the new additions in a free demo which will feature the Outpost campaign level, plus a free Plaza multiplayer map, with solo, split screen and Live co-op modes all supported. No word on pricing quite yet, but the demo debut should be fairly imminent, so keep an eye on Live for its arrival.
