Castle Crashers: Raising Dead People and Swinging Chainsaws

So it seems that the Chainsaw/Necromancer DLC promised ages ago is finally near release.
While you crafty peoples have already figured most of this out through various leaks, here at last confirmed are the details of the fearsome and fabulous… Necromantic Pack DLC for Castle Crashers!

It will include:

Two new Characters!

The Necromancer (who’s magic is pure awesome) and The Cult Minion

A new Animal Orb

Dragonhead will bring the heat!

Two new Weapons!

The NG Skull Mace and yes, …the damn Chainsaw.

No word yet on the release date or price, and once again, this is completely up to Microsoft. But I can leave you with a tantalizing.. SOON.

We will post the date as soon as we find out!

    Meh I'm not too keen on that DLC seeing as we already have a bunch of different characters and they all play pretty similarly. New Levels would've been cool.

    They just announced this will be out on Wednesday and cost 160 points.

    Supposedly the Necromancer has really good magic of some kind, and I imagine the new pet is just the fire equivalent of the ice pet the King Pack came with.

    I wonder if either of these guys will start with the Rubber-Handled Sword (aka Bloodstained Sword)? As it is now, you can only get that sword by having someone who already has it give it to you online. They'll probably just start with the weapons they normally drop though.

    So, about two bucks for two good excuses to play through a great game again and a muthafuggin' chainsaw? Sounds fine to me.

    This DLC should be free for those of us who bought this at launch and suffered through the what, 6 months it didn't actually work?

    Never actually played this in multiplayer because it was broken for months and by the time it had been fixed I'd moved on and so had most other people. Chances of my buying anything made by them again is pretty slim.

    Wow, this is just now about to come out? The dev team for this game works in glacial time... I think I remember hearing about this like really shortly after launch.

    I can't wait!

    Also the Dev Team for Castle Crashers is 7 people. No joke. That's the entire company. I'd say "Glacial Time" is better than none at all.

    I completely forgot how tough the arena fights are. I just got stomped in the Swamp Arena twice, with a level 32 Blue Knight. Guess I'll be grinding up my Defense stat.

    I guess you conveniently forgot that the online was a piece of shit with connection issues. Also stuff with savegames disapearing.

    I never once got to play the game online.. by the time it actually worked, no one was playing the game anymore. It didn't help that the fucker kept erasing my profile, every time I started up the game I was back to 4 level 1 knights.

    Other than that, great game. I really wanted to like it, it just made it so hard.

    This DLC should come with a coupon for a free blowjob or something, as an apology for the trouble.

    Like I said, early evening here (in the UK) it worked fine, had plenty of two player games, and up to four players on several occasions, even in the early days.

    However, once the US came online, en masse, later on in the evening, it went to Hell in a handbasket pretty quickly, became impossible to keep a game going without everyone Crashing out.

    On launch week I had a couple really great online games with some of my friends. Then that stopped working, and the game lost my save data. I didn't play it much after that.

    I don't think I'll be buying it because there is absolutely no way it will be less than 400 points.

    No shit? That's pretty cool. It really should only be $2 at the most, though.

    How much is the basic CC these days? I played it when it just came out on a friend's console, but I never bought it on my own.?

    I enjoyed this, and was unbothered by the troubles as I didn't play it online or intend to.

    $2 sounds reasonable.

    I would be interested in playing this again. Interest died down before the patch so I never got to play a bug-free online game so I would definitely be interested in that.

    Just downloaded the two packs. Woo!

    For some reason when I go to Games Marketplace on my 360, I get an error. I bought them through the website, went to my active downloads on my 360 and they were there. Meh.

    edit: So, I have decided not to play Batman today. Castle Crashers before work. Yay. Necromancer's magic is skelleton hands out of the ground. Oh, and I am using the chainsawwwwww. Vrrmrmm vrrmmmm.

    Necromancer's "fireball" magic is a skeleton that sprints forward. So awesome. Just wish the Necro had wings.

    Im torn whether to level the minion , reason being that I leveled the skeleton to 99 and beat insane with him and they are essentially the same character.

    Glad to hear this is finally out. Castle Crashers has been one of the few games that seems univerally enjoyed by my friends that come over. More characters is always fun. Now I can start with a fresh character with my friends starting their own. Though going from the sounds of it, I will be sticking with the sword from the last DLC.

    It would appear there ain't no rest for the wicked...who knew?

    Yeah the sword from the last one is definitely the best.
