Gamers awaiting the first expansion for Xbox One title Dead Rising 3 will need to wait a little longer. Microsoft announced today that the game’s Operation Broken Eagle DLC will now launch on January 21, a few weeks after the game’s previously announced December 24 release date.
“Adding new content to the massive open world of Los Perdidos is a major undertaking, and to ensure we provide the best possible experience for players, we are putting a few additional weeks of polish and testing into the episode before it’s released,” Microsoft said in a statement. “Stay tuned for additional updates.”
Operation Eagle puts you in the shoes of Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane who is on a mission to capture the missing President of the United States.
In addition to the new quest, the Operation Eagle expansion unlocks five new weapons, one new combo weapon, one new vehicle, a new clothing outfit, and additional gamerscore. On top of that, all experience points unlocked in the Operation Eagle expansion will carry back to the main Dead Rising 3 campaign, Capcom said.
The Operation Eagle DLC is included with the $30 Dead Rising 3 season pass and can be purchased separately for $10. Three other expansions are headed to Dead Rising 3 through the season pass, including DLC called Fallen Angel, Chaos Rising, and The Last Agent.
Microsoft released a Dead Rising 3 demo last week.
