ACE OF SPADES STEALS HEARTS WITH GANGSTER THEMED VALENTINE’S DAY CONTENT

for immediate release: Jagex, Europe’s largest independent games studio, today unveiled the latest DLC for their popular creative shooter, Ace of Spades, themed around the notorious St Valentine’s Day Massacre in late 1920s Chicago. 

If things have become all too sugary this Valentine’s Day then Ace of Spades has the perfect antidote – a brand new DLC pack featuring all the weapons you’ll need to plug your mark before they take a pop at you.  Themed around the infamous St Valentine’s Day Massacre, this DLC pack features maps based upon the iconic locations of San Francisco’s legendary prison, Alcatraz and the mob-run streets of Prohibition era Chicago, as well as a new gangster character class equppied with a Tommy Gun, Snub Nosed Pistol, Crowbar and Molotov Cocktail.

Also included in this DLC are two new game modes designed to recreate a 1920s gangster atmosphere. The first, Territories, sees players fighting to control different parts of the map, with the goal of taking control of the City. The second mode, VIP, introduces two new boss characters who need to be protected by their respective gangs whilst attempting to take out the enemy mark. When a team’s VIP is killed they enter  Sudden Death - respawns are disabled and all remaining players slowly lose health to keep the pressure up!

·         6 new character skins

·         1 new character class

·         4 new weapons - Tommy Gun, Snub Nosed Pistol, Crowbar and Molotov Cocktail
