In the midst of all the E3 hoopla last week, the folks at Activision released a single player DLC pack for X-Men: Wolverine. It’s pretty neat because it allows you to customize a battle arena and add an unlimited number of opponents to “lunge and plunge” at. Sounds like it’ll be really cool, but very limited DLC pack that ultimately won’t be worth the 800 points. So far I’m enjoying the heck out of the main game, so added DLC is always welcome.

Gamers can spawn any combination of small and large enemies to face combinations not available in standard gameplay, from hordes of grunts they can cut down in seconds to a complex mix of enemies, including a Sentinel Prototype, Jungle Grappler, Machine Gunners and more. Once players have encountered all enemies in the game, the Ladder Challenge room unlocks, presenting gamers with a preconfigured challenge. Enemy types and numbers start small and ramp up, flooding the room for fifty waves of increasingly difficult combat challenges.
And there’s even an Environmental Simulator. This room includes all the unique environmental weapons in the game, including broken tree branches that can be used as spears, forklift skids to throw enemies toward and computer consoles into which players can smash enemies—to name a few.
