Streets of Rage 4 will be getting some DLC this month in the form of the Mr. X Nightmare pack which adds a bunch of new content to the game. It releases July 15th, 2021.
Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games have announced today that the Street Fight 4 DLC, Mr. X Nightmare, will be releasing on July 15th, 2021 and that it’ll cost $7.99 on all platforms.
The Mr. X Nightmare DLC brings a new Survival mode where you’ll have to, er, survive for as long as possible against waves of increasingly difficult enemies while earning perks. There will be two ways to play the Streets of Rage 4 survival mode: Random and Weekly.
Random will throw random enemies your way to keep you on your toes with an unpredictable challenge. Weekly will be a series of set challenges that changes every week. There will also be some leaderboards so that you can check out how good you are compared to the Streets of Rage 4 community. Will you be the best fighter? Or will you be down at the bottom of the board with your old’ mate Chris…
The Mr. X Nightmare DLC pack also brings some new playable characters. Estel Aguirre, Max Thunder, and Shiva all become playable characters in Streets of Rage 4 with the DLC pack.
The free update, however, adds a new in-depth training mode, New Mania+ difficulty, colour palettes, and a load of tweaks to the general gameplay based on feedback from Streets of Rage 4 players. The free update will also roll out on July 15th.
Streets of Rage 4 released on consoles and PC last year to critical acclaim – I bloody loved it. Give it a look if you remember smashing bins for a turkey (or was it chicken?) in the 90s.
