New Chromehounds content this week

New guns, armour and camouflage pattern included in imminent Xbox Live Marketplace free update

In the official Sega forums, it's been announced that an update 'pack' for 'mech shooter Chromehounds will be available to download via Xbox Live Marketplace at 00:00GMT on July 19.

Download the pack - which is free - and you'll get your hands on the WP_SG003 (a sniper cannon for fast, furious engagements. Features a smaller magazine to reduce weight), the WH_HC034 (an improved HC1500/D, for those in the know. A giant cannon with massive destructive power), the AX_AM002 (additional armor with an enhanced KE defensive profile. It's shaped to better turn bullets) and WWII Tricolor Camouflage (a brand new World War II inspired camouflage pattern).

It's been mentioned in the forum post detailing the update that Sega and Chromehounds dev FromSoftware "have made the decision to offer the pack free of charge by way of a thank you to HOUND pilots around the world. As you may know, we experienced some tricky server-load problems right after launch, and we hope this will go some way to saying thanks for sticking by the game."
