Ninja Theory’s stunning and spectacular Enslaved: Odyssey to the West--one of 2010’s best overlooked games--is set to receive two rather significant add-ons in the form of new story-based downloadable content and the addition of 3D support.
The DLC, entitled Pigsy’s Perfect 10, tells its own side story in which players assume the role of the swine-ish, grapple hook-handed, titular third wheel who plays a crucial, if emotionally conflicted, role in Enslaved stars Monkey and Trip’s journey. In this humorous tale, Pigsy attempts to build a female companion out of the plethora of spare parts found in his junkyard.
Because Pigsy relies primarily on stealth and long-ranged attacks, thanks to his beloved sniper rifle, the gameplay will be decidedly different than the hand-to-mech-face gameplay of Enslaved. Pigsy’s hookshot should also expand the game’s platforming elements as well. And in keeping with Enslaved’s emphasis on partner dynamics, Pigsy will be accompanied by his mech sidekick Truffles.
The DLC will also introduce 3D support for the entire game compliments of a TriOviz for Games Technology update. If you have a 3D-enabled TV, you can play in 3D using Stereo 3D Active Shutter glasses, and if you have a 2D HDTV, you’ll need a pair of TriOviz INFICOLOR 3D glasses, which should go on sale before the end of the year.
Pigsy’s Perfect 10 will be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year for $9.99/800 Microsoft Points.
