Additionally, launching alongside the DLC will come a free patch that allows players to drop in or out of the game at any time while playing offline co-op. The update will also lower the difficulty of the game's (rather difficult) "Average Joe" setting.
According to Ubisoft, the DLC is due out on Xbox Live "later this month." If you're finding it difficult to stick it out until then, you can whet your palate by checking out a new trailer for the DLC after the jump.
The download is priced at $2 and includes the new playable 'Knives Chau' character, as well as two new game modes: Battle Royale and Dodge Ball. In addition, Ubisoft will also offer a free patch, which upgrades the player's original gameplay to co-op.
Developed in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game™ is based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's award-winning graphic novel series and the Universal Pictures film directed by genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright.
The game follows 'Scott Pilgrim's' quest to date 'Ramona Flowers' by defeating her seven evil exes. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is a rock 'n' roll action love story for the 8-bit generation with an arcade-style, beat-'em-up experience inspired by many classic retro games of the '80s and '90s. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is rated "T" for TEEN by the ESRB.
