Free content update includes Western stages, espionage and Sci-Fi characters, and terrifying hats
Releasing a new video, Paradox Interactive announced that a new content update is available now for The Showdown Effect, the multiplayer action title from Arrowhead Game Studios. With this update, players receive two new levels, South Eastwood and Fort Fiesta, inspired by classic spaghetti Western films - with an unhealthy dose of 1980s monster movies mashed into the mix. The levels are available for free and will be immediately available to pick in both ranked and custom matches.
Players will also meet two new characters: Thelma Vaine, British super-spy with a cloaking device and a sharp tongue – and Dr. Johnny Bionic, a cyborg who must fight every day to keep his drill-saw-arm from murdering all humans. These characters, plus a series of Reddit costume pieces, can be redeemed for free using in-game AC. An additional set of Western costume pieces can be purchased for a fistful of dollars.
