Dark Messiah content pack reappears on XBLM

Even before releasing the game itself, Ubisoft dropped fresh content for the Oblivion-esque PC port Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements for the Xbox 360. By the time we had a chance to scratch our heads at downloadable content for a game that didn't exisit (at retail that is), Ubisoft pulled the plug and the content was removed from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Well, like an adamant Terminator, the content pack is back and ready to roll. 400 MS creds gets you new maps, classes and weapons. Unfortunatley the download pack does not include fun, maybe that's next time!

Shipping this week: feed your head edition

Another week, another batch of brand new games for the Xbox 360. The biggest game this week is undoubtedly Lost Odyssey. Of course, given its nature, Lost Odyssey will draw one of two reactions: excited, nerdy screams or decidedly protracted yawns. X3F seems to be relatively split on the subject (we all dig the commercial though). Not to fear if Japanese RPGs aren't your thing though, as we've also got some Conflict: Denied Ops action and even some new Xbox Originals to download. Behold!
  • Lost Odyssey
  • Jumper
  • Conflict: Denied Ops
  • Dark Messiah of Might & Magic
  • Ninja Gaiden Black (Xbox Originals)
  • Black (Xbox Originals)
  • Sid Meier's Pirates! Live the Life (Xbox Originals)

Dark Messiah content hits Live days before release [Update]

Update: Our original tipster is at it again letting us know that since the release of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements the content that was originally offered for download has now vanished from the Xbox Live Marketplace. We wonder if there was an issue with the content, it dropped too soon or the pricing was wrong. Only time will tell.

The upcoming Source engine first-person roleplaying game, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements, is hitting retail shelves on February 12. However, one of our eagle-eyed readers noticed downloadable content was already made available over Xbox Live Marketplace. At a cost of 400MS space-bucks you can add new maps, classes and weapons. While we're all about being proactive here at X3F, we wonder why this content isn't on the disc. We don't imagine the 151MB download would have filled a standard DVD to bursting and considering Dark Messiah was originally released on the PC in 2006, you'd imagine Ubisoft would find the time to toss it on the retail disc.

Dark Messiah: Elements demo hits XBLM

Nothing like a surprise demo to brighten your day. Scratch that, nothing like a good surprise demo to brighten your day. Today's demo is Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements from Ubisoft. We haven't actually taken it for a spin just yet, so we haven't verified the "good" part of the equation, but we're hopeful. We can confirm that the demo lets players access both single player and multiplayer modes, which is always nice for a demo. For those unfamiliar with the game, it's a very violent fantasy FPS. Check out the trailer after the break and see if it looks like your cup of tea.

Dark Messiah rises on Marketplace

A new Dark Messiah of Might and Magic Elements video is risen on Xbox Live Marketplace. The video is short and to the point, making sure to emphasize the violent first person combat of the title. There's plenty of slicing, dicing, whacking, and thwacking to be had, and just so you remember that there is both might and magic, a few spells are thrown in for good measure. We imagine most players will get a kick out of telekinetically launching opponents off cliffs. One new tidbit revealed in the trailer: the 360 version of Dark Messiah will have a new multiplayer mode designed by the Splinter Cell team (how will that work? Spies versus orcs?). Dark Messiah of Might and Magic Elements ships September 7.

360 to get both Mighty and Magical

Yet more Ubisoft news today, as Eurogamer discovers that Arkane Studios' Dark Messiah of Might & Magic is headed to the Xbox 360. Powered by Valve's Source engine, the game will be a port of the original PC title, with the additional subtitle, Elements (does every game have to have a subtitle these days?). For those unfamiliar with the game, it is a first-person RPG that's heavy on fantasy action. It's worth noting that the game received decent reviews on the PC, though many complained of lots of bugs. Here's hoping everything is ironed out for the 360 release. See a trailer for the PC version after the break.
