Developer Klei Entertainment has announced that a new DLC expansion for Mark of the Ninja is in the pipeline, and is currently slated to release this summer on Xbox Live and Steam.
The Special Edition DLC includes a brand new level which acts as a prologue leading up to the events of the main game. In addition to that, the DLC also gives players the ability to perform a nonlethal takedown which should provide several new ways to tackle a mission. Other additions include new items and developer commentary for existing levels. Here’s the scoop:
A new style of play, which includes a nonlethal takedown ability, and provides a hybrid of lethal and nonlethal approaches to the game.
Two new items, one more geared to stealth and concealment and one a bit more direct. Both the items and the new play style will be available in the main game as well as the new level.
Finally, we’ve added a ton of developer commentary to the main game. All the original levels will feature a number of commentary nodes that discuss various aspects of the game’s creation, anecdotes, at least two history lessons and other behind the scenes info from nearly everyone on the team.
Developer commentary has been fully localized for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese.
A trailer also accompanied the story. Check it out below. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we hear a release date.
