Behold Space Marine’s $3 sword!

, | Games

I haven’t played Space Marine, but if I do, I need to remember to bring a few extra bucks for multiplayer games. Because, as of today, here’s what three dollars will get me:

Unlock the deadly Power Sword weapon in multiplayer. Sheathed in a power field, it cuts through armor and flesh alike and features unique animations, combos and damage output.

I’m pretty sure I know what “unique damage output” means. THQ has all sorts of cosmetic DLC for Space Marine, but as near as I can tell, this is their first time selling something that gives the buyer an advantage in multiplayer.
