Coldstrike New Villains, Heroes Deploy to Renegade Ops

Renegade Ops is like the G.I. Joe game I always wanted: colorful characters, a dastardly foe, and lots and lots of explosions lighting up the landscape.  It also has the good sense to know that the world is never really safe from the designs of arch villians with scores of disposable henchmen on their payrolls, as evidenced by tomorrow’s release of the Coldstrike Campaign pack for the 360, PS3, and PC.

As the Renegade Ops storyline continues, the plot thickens with a new nemesis, Coldstrike. The Coldstrike Campaign pack contains three new icy levels and challenges, with the aim to defeat the cold-hearted enemy in arctic environments. Watch out for the Golems, large armored Drone factories that continuously produce low-flying enemies.

And what would a new bad guy be without a couple new recruits to help the old crew take them on.  Arriving alongside the Coldstrike Campaign, the Vehicle Pack will add two new war-buggies to the Renegade Ops arsenal with their own special abilities and customizable upgrade paths.

The Vehicle Pack introduces new heroes Crystal and Blazemo; both join the elite fighting unit equipped with their own unique abilities and weapons to help wreak ultimate destruction on their enemies. Military operative Crystal comes to the team with her custom armored vehicle and her ability to produce a large force field, absorbing enemy weapons to give you and your team time to breathe. Navigating Blazemo’s off-road Racer enables you to drive across all terrains while destroying everything in your path. Blazemo gets his name from the catastrophic damage caused by burning environments and enemies with a stream of intense fire from his special weapon, the Incinerator.

The Coldstrike Campaign and Vehicle Pack DLCs will both go live tomorrow, December 20th, for $5.00 and $3.00 respectively.  Compatibility patches are already being pushed down to ensure that players will get to enjoy all the same co-op craziness together whether their friends pick up the new characters or not.  Looking for a crew to roll with?  Just give us a shout in our forums and see how much more fun wanton destruction can be with a team at your side!
