We knew that Klei Entertainment were bringing out a Special Edition DLC pack for Mark of the Ninja “this summer”, but otherwise had no idea when. And now, like a ninja emerging from the shadows, the date has appeared via the medium of Twitter.
That date is 16 August.
The Special Edition DLC, priced at $4.99 USD, will include a new “flashback” level, a new costume (which will actually impact your playstyle if it’s anything like those of the original game), a huge amount of developer commentary, and some new items.
Considering that Mark of the Ninja is one of the best stealth games around, I’m genuinely interested in the developer commentary. I look forward to having a listen in a week’s time.
For now, you can have a gander at the (previously released) trailer for the DLC below, and be thankful that I didn’t write this entire news story in haiku.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
