Project Cars Giving Away Free DLC Car Every Month

Project Cars developer Slightly Mad Studios has announced the first car in what's a series of monthly free DLC cars – the Lykan Hypersport.

The Lykan Hypersport is the first supercar made in the Middle East, and will be featured in the upcoming Furious 7 film. It can go 62 mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 245 mph.

It can be yours in May for what Andy Tudor, the game's project director, says is a "thank you to our fans for being so patient for the launch of the game." Project Cars was recently delayed until mid-May.

Tudor says that a full schedule of content for the game will be released "soon."

Our Take
I'm personally not into DLC cars, but I know a lot of gamers covet various vehicles. Apart from a make-good for the delay, knowing what free DLC car will be out when could induce some players to pick up the game if they know when their favorite car can be had.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon’s First Month Is Filled With Free DLC

Atlus’ first Etrian Odyssey mashup, Persona Q, was well-received by fans of both series. The publisher is hoping to capture that magic once more when Etrian Mystery Dungeon launches next month.

Atlus is sweetening the pot for the first month of the game’s release with free DLC. If you purchase the game before May 5, you’ll be able to get approximately $ 8.50 of additional quests. After that date, you'll have to pay for the five quests at $ 1.49 or $ 1.99 each.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Three of these are one-time opportunities that unlock new food recipes that confer stat buffs for your next dungeon adventure. The remaining two quests are repeatable and potions for extra experience and nuggets for extra spending money.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon is due out on April 7. For more, check out our previous coverage to see how Atlus is blending these two franchises.

 

Our Take
After previous failed attempts to get into the Etrian series, it all finally clicked with me thanks to Persona Q. I’m looking forward to giving the other entries another shot. I’m also curious about this mashup, and the DLC offer has elevated it on my to-buy list.
