Microsoft Game Studios today announced that new content for Crimson Skies™: High Road to Revenge, the smash-hit aerial action game for Xbox®, is now available for download via Xbox Live™. The latest wave of free content includes three new planes, two new maps and two new gametypes that are sure to keep the skies ablaze with high-speed high-altitude action. Fighter aces will rejoice as they jump into the cockpits of the Vampire, Firebrand or Hellhound aircraft. The Vampire and Firebrand pack serious plane-busting firepower, while the fast and agile Hellhound can shred any slow-moving planes that dare cross its path. Two new maps, Badlands and The Lost Plateau, will test the mettle of even the best pilots. Badlands features a twisting mix of canyons and caves, while The Lost Plateau will have gamers soaring through the night skies and zipping through ancient ruins to shake off any pesky bogeys.
Along with the new planes and maps, two additional gametypes are available for download: Chicken Pox and Gunheist. Capture the Flag takes on a whole new twist in Gunheist, in which teams are challenged to capture and hold three anti-aircraft gun emplacements within a limited time. In Chicken Pox, gamers have to capture chickens and use them as power-ups. A plane carrying a chicken will enjoy a full boost recharge, rapid damage recovery and instant reloading of its secondary weapons, making it the deadliest chicken delivery system in the sky and awarding the pilot with two points for shooting down any chicken-less pilots.
