Lost Dimension Gets Release Date and Free DLC

Lost Dimension has received a release date and some exciting DLC news. The sci-fi Tactical RPG from ATLUS and Lancarse will launch July 28 and players can download more than twenty dollars worth of DLC for free.

For two weeks following the game’s launch, players will be able to get nine free in-game character costumes, twelve free PSN avatars, a map set with additional story and 3 DLC quest sets for extra experience.

The character costumes are varied new ways to tactically kick butt in Lost Dimension, ranging from Toya’s dapper suit to Mana’s superheroine outfit. The costumes are cosmetic only and provide a lighthearted change to the battlefield.

The free PSN avatars represent the eleven heroes and heroines in the game, as well as a special avatar for the game’s villain: The End. They have no bearing in-game, but can represent your favorite squad mate or extraterrestrial hellbent on destroying the world across all of PSN.

The three quest DLC add an extra mission to each floor. The missions don’t provide much in the way of EXP or EN (Energy, a.k.a. money), but if successfully completed with an S-Rank rating, players will be rewarded with a specialized item for individual character bonuses. Getting an S-Rank requires completing the mission as quickly as possible — at any cost. The mission packs come in differing levels of challenge:

The Emissary from the Netherworld: Moderately difficult
The Price of Blood: More difficult
Runaway Cause and Effect: Most difficult

Finally, there’s an additional map pack called The Beginning of The End. This is a separate story that takes place in an entirely different location; there are five missions in total, but it explores the creation of the game’s central Pillar and goes into the history of the eleven heroes and heroines in Lost Dimension.

There are also some additional paid items players can purchase as well. Ranging from 49 cents to 99 cents are a wide array of helper items. These are consumable items that help raise experience, money and other beneficial stats by providing a passive boost before a battle. The helper items typically aid in combat scenarios.

Second are paid status boosters. These items range in price from $0.49 to $2.99, and can increase vision points or help restore SAN (sanity) stats in combat, which affects a character’s abilities to use skills, even providing a consumable item that levels up all your party members. These items typically help players out for Judgement scenarios, where they have to suss out the traitors amongst their party.
