A listing has just appeared on the Xbox Live Marketplace revealing an upcoming downloadable content (DLC) pack for Transformers War for Cybertron.

The title of the DLC is Map and Character Pack #1 totaling in at 377 MB. The details of the listing read as such:

Become the ultimate weapon and wage war in four new maps engage in multiplayer combat in HAVOC and FORTRESS or fend off waves of Autobots in DISTRICT, and Decepticons in FORSAKEN, two new Escalation mode maps. Also gain access to 5 characters and their chassis for use in Escalation mode and Multiplayer character creation; SCATTERSHOT, ONSLAUGHT, DEMOLISHOR, SHOCKWAVE and JAZZ are ready for battle. Fight to the end in the war that started it all!

Since this has leaked early there is not a proper release date or price listed for this item, but keep it at TFW2005 and we will let you know as soon as we find out more!

Damn, now that's sexy. Glad I was wrong about the pre-order characters <3
Sucks for everyone who bought them on ebay for WAY too much though.

Saw someone had found this listing on another message board, I've already posted it in the WFC section but I'll put it in the news one too.

Xbox LIVE Marketplace | Transformers: WFC

Listing for a Map and character pack for WFC.

Become the ultimate weapon and wage war in four new maps engage in multiplayer combat in HAVOC and FORTRESS or fend off waves of Autobots in DISTRICT, and Decepticons in FORSAKEN, two new Escalation mode maps. Also gain access to 5 characters and their chassis for use in Escalation mode and Multiplayer character creation; SCATTERSHOT, ONSLAUGHT, DEMOLISHOR, SHOCKWAVE and JAZZ are ready for battle. Fight to the end in the war that started it all! There are no refunds for this item.

The release date is all weird but I'm wondering if this is just a place holder for now or wasn't supposed to be put up/be seen just yet. And no you can't download anything yet.

Sweet!!! Will be buying! Year 0001 can't come fast enough!!!
Thundershot
Yessssssss..... Hopefully for PS3 too
RipCurl
YESS ! it better not be too much . i dont have any ms points.

I cliked download but its asking me for billing information and i dont have a credit card . how much is it :O ?

and it says #1 . more to come ?

I think it was more of a surprise that people didn't think these characters would be available in the form of DLC at a future date than seeing this.

Preorder bonus products are not really a big deal anymore. I liked it better when you got a physical item instead of something in game.
MrByatis
I'm not familiar with Xbox live market place at all, but it does say "Download to Xbox" underneath the title of the DLC
Airspeed
Yes,cant wait ,BUT what about Zeta Prime and Deadend ?

I don't think we were supposed to see it yet, or the listing isn't complete yet.
Thus why the date is crazy and it says it's only available via a prepaid code.
RipCurl
ahh.

well we have an extra 2 tanks , 1 leader , 1 scientist

i already have jazz

i think ? missed any ?
Angelwave
Thundercrackah my boy....you just made quite a few people happy.
blumpy2000
I tried to get it but it requires a redemption code, which I obviously don't have...or do I? No, I don't.
Angelwave
Very very nice. I guess we just have to wait for the official announcement from Activision.
Kranix
hope pc users dont get the shaft like previous cross platform transformers games

And made a lot of people who bought the codes (not me, for the record) upset. Watch.
sparty2304
So far it seems the PS3 folks are being over looked as well. My understanding is ONLY 360 has seen the patch for the XP. So I dont feel so bad.
King Henrik
awesome!! can't wait this! although i've never seen pre-paid codes only for a dlc pack... very odd. my only question is where dead end and zeta?

I've been wondering if it might have something to do with PSN. Let's see what happens come Tuesday.

if there even is a #2... wasn't the ROTF pack called the Character & Map Pack #1 also?

I do believe so. IIRC they were talks about doing a second DLC for ROTF, but that turned to mist.
McBradders
at those people paying eBay prices for pre-order characters.

I hope you're right man. We need a patch bad. I hope we also get the DLC. Seems like PSN has been left out of the loop.

Aww, that's not nice. I'm sure Demolshor was worth over $100 to them then. Too bad now you'll be able to get all three (a $160-ish value) for $10. XD

Can't wait to see the prices on ebay plummet.

i'm not so sure the patch is all that great... i've been getting more and more laggy games since and it's even migrated over to escalation. I never had lag there until the patch.
Deceptigtar
just tried to dload it and it asks for a pre paid code. so looks like it wont work.

Eww that's not good.
The Constructicon
I've had nearly no lag since I downloaded the 360 patch.

maybe its just a coincidence then
The Constructicon
Could be, or maybe I've just been lucky?
Boose
About 1 in 4 games have been laggy for me as well since the patch happened.

If this pack is real, Ill be so happy. I've been trying to find a Jazz code since the day came out, but theres no way i'm paying the eBay prices just for a skin in a video game. I wouldn't even pay $100 for a Encore/ReIssue Jazz TOY, let alone a code.

Plus, new Escalation maps are very much needed as well. Please let the Decepticon level actually be decent this time.
The Constructicon
I thought the Decepticon map was good, but I do hope the new one is even better.
King Henrik
i think the con map is actually a bit harder, but i don't think either is better or worse really
Boose
I just didn't like the fact the Health and Ammo at the beginning were right in the middle of the level were most battles happen. The Autobot level had at least a little bit of cover and an actual room to stay in to get health or ammo. The Decepticon level is decent, just to many Zeta Clones using an EMP blast on me made me despise it.
The Constructicon
I like the con map because of that, the Autobot one is incredibly easy by comparison. I hope the Decepticon map is just as challenging and the Autobot one gets a bump up too.
Metal Chaos
I knew we'd be getting DLC sometime soon. Yay for new maps, modes and characters. I wonder how many MS points it'll be, hoping it will be around 800.

I'd venture a guess that's exactly what's happened here. It's not supposed to be up yet, and will either be down soon or have a proper price.
The Constructicon
I assume it'll be the standard 800MS points or $10 for everyone else.
Might I ask how this market listing was found by the way?

I bet at least one person here paid over the odds for a character.

This is for you;

Skins... Not characters.
The Constructicon
I was about to fork out the money to get my last character Jazz, he's only $30 though.
I'd rather pay $10 for three I didn't have and four more maps though.
sparty2304
Skins = characters
Angelwave
Yeah...one of our members sold his preorder character for $91 on ebay. It's lolz I tell you.

Same thing, Escalation gets the characters and MP gets "skins".
blumpy2000
There's a thread with a couple of guys who Amazon sent multiple codes for Demolishor. Best get to selling those pronto!!!
