Dishonored Release Dunwall City Trials DLC This December

Maybe you've already finished Arkane Studios' critically acclaimed stealth/action hybrid. Maybe you yearn for more blinking, possession and sneaky killing through Dunwall's cobblestone streets. This December, you'll get your wish as challenge-based and story-centric DLC starts rolling out for Dishonored.

Dunwall City Trials -- which will cost 400 Microsoft points -- will offer up 10 skill-centred tests where you'll be made to battles waves of enemies in arenas, perform drop assassinations and run through point-to-point races as fast as you can.

The other DLC will hit in 2013, but don't have prices attached yet. They'll focus on story including one that lets you play as a major character from Dishonored: (Mild spoilers for those who haven't finished the game)

Daud, the leader of a group of supernatural assassins known as ‘The Whalers', will be the focus of the second add-on pack, scheduled for release in early Spring 2013. Make your way through new Dunwall locales and discover Daud's own set of weapons, powers and gadgets in this story-driven campaign. How you play and the choices you make will impact the final outcome…

    By this they mean, they're repackaging textures/layouts, and making mini levels out of them.
    This should be free

      So just to ensure I'm understanding you correctly, because they're not making everything from scratch they should release this content free of charge?

        So when a studio starts making a game, right - they have to create everything mostly from scratch. Maybe less so with more typical titles, but something like dishonored would (I'm assuming) need some pretty unique stuff. That's obviously catered into their development costs. Seeing as all of that is done by now, I kinda feel like they're kicking the pig a bit.

      Where does it say they're not all new maps for the challenges? And why is re-using textures a problem?

    For those of us using real money, how much is 400 MSP? (and I'll presume that's a US price too...)
