Playable Knives Chau and New Modes in Scott Pilgrim DLC

Knives Chau, an additional playable character, and two new modes, Battle Royal and Dodgeball, are coming to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game.

Knives steps out from her previous supporting role, which is now taken over by her mother, and serves as an additional character to wander the streets of Toronto with. Knives joins Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Stephen Stills, and Kim Pine to round out the playable characters in the game to include all the major protagonists of the comic and movie.

The two new game modes provide additional multiplayer challenges. Battle Royal follows old school wrestling rules. Players are placed on a platform, with weapons sitting just off its edges. Once you leave the platform, either to get weapons or because you were thrown/punched/pummeled off, you have ten seconds to get back on or you are out. The last player standing is the victor. Dodgeball is also as simple as it sounds. A large beachball is your primary weapon as you throw, punch and kick it into your opponent to damage them. Whoever survives wins.

In addition, to Knives and the two new modes the DLC pack will also include new trophies and an upcoming update will fix various game glitches and add drop in/drop out co-op play. However, the largest omission in the game is not getting solved, Ubisoft has confirmed that online multiplayer will not be added.

The Knives Chau DLC pack will be available for $1.99 via the PSN in early November, no specific date was confirmed. Though the DLC’s release should coincide with Scott Pilgrim vs. the World coming to BluRay and DVD November 9th.
