Bandai Namco has released a new Expansion Pack DLC for SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays. The Expansion Pack costs $7.99 and it is separate from the game's Season Pass content (which came in four waves: 1, 2, 3, 4). It should be available on the game's Steam page later today.
This Expansion Pack will add a new Inferno Mode, where the difficulty level can be gradually incremented. It will also add five new stages as well as new characters and mobile suits from past G Generation games, including Aplodia with the Halphas Gundam, Amelias in the Halphas Böse, Code Amelias with the Halphas Böse Halberd, and Code Phoenix piloting the Master Phoenix.
Additionally, Bandai Namco announced that a free update to version 1.50 will be available on March 25, while another free update to version 1.60 will be available later this Spring.
