Kameo pack adds versus play, achievements


New Kameo content on Marketplace, dubbed "The Kameo Power Pack," is set to add several features to Rare's platformer. The content adds three new modes of play including Expert mode, Time Attack mode, and Rune Battle mode. All modes support two players, the first two being co-op while the third is a versus mode. One interesting tidbit: the new content will actually add 15 new achievements and worldwide leaderboards to the game (anybody know if this gives Kameo more than 1000 achievement points?). Whatever your opinions of Kameo, it's nice to see Rare supporting the game with fresh content this far into its lifespan. Expect to see it hit Marketplace "soon."

[Thanks, MumbleyJoe]

1. They're probably zero point achievements.

2. The main game only had 500, the developers planned to be able to add more. I think this might bump it to 700 or 800.

3. The main storyline had 650 points in achivements. Then you could get 350 more points through co-op and A rankings. Thats a total of 1000, which is the limit for games. So that means all of the new achivements are worth nothing.

4. I am guessing the achievements are specific to the Power Pack and will be listed seperately from the other Kameo achievements. I think that they will add up to 200 points.

5. I never thought of that #4 - that sounds like an awesome idea. Big addons, like this one and the GRAW one, give you more achievement points, but keep them separate from the game so that you can still get 1000 points for "all" the achievements for the base game without having to shell out extra money to get the full achievment value. GRAW still lists only 925; I thought the addon pack would have bumped it up to 1000 but I guess not.

6. along these lines...where are the last 75 Gamerpoints for GRAW? i would have thought they would have been part of the Chapter 2 download.

7. i can't wait 'till they add the "fun" content for this game to the marketplace.

they could call it the "Kameo Fun Pack".

it'd make millions. of ms points.

8. They are zero point achievements. The game already had some for the last multiplayer co-op add-on. Games are only allowed 1000 points period. and Mumbley stole this story from ME! (which is fine) ;)

9. Yep, zero achievements.

Like a Marvel No Prize, but you get a badge :D
