The Showdown Effect Adds Free Content In New Update
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive has announced the release of a free new content update for The Showdown Effect. The new DLC includes two new levels inspired by spaghetti westerns, two new characters in the form of British spy Thelma Vaine and cyborg Dr. Johnny Bionic, and a series of new costume pieces.

The Showdown Effect is inspired by 80’s and 90’s action movies "where champions from different eras of time fight to the death, for fun, for glory and for awesome." In the game players will battle for the upper hand using a variety of different weapons. The Showdown Effect features a multiplayer mode for up to 8 participants, multiple game modes, numerous heroes, and dynamic environments.

For gamers who are not players of The Showdown Effect, Paradox offers two suggestions on how to become players of The Showdown Effect: defeat a current player in a sword duel and absorb their immortality and game collection, or purchase The Showdown Effect in today’s Daily Deal on Steam at a hefty discount.

In today’s update players receive two new levels, South Eastwood and Fort Fiesta, inspired by classic ‘spaghetti Western’ films – with an unhealthy dose of 1980s monster movies mashed into the mix. The levels are available for free and will be immediately available to pick in both ranked and custom matches. Players will also meet two new characters: Thelma Vaine, British super-spy with a cloaking device and a sharp tongue – and Dr. Johnny Bionic, a cyborg who must fight every day to keep his drill-saw-arm from murdering all humans. These characters, plus a series of Reddit costume pieces, can be redeemed for free using in-game AC. An additional set of Western costume pieces can be purchased for a fistful of dollars.
