The pack is called 'The Dreadnought," adds a new multiplayer mode called Dreadnought Assault where teams capture central locations on a map. The winners spawn a player controlled Dreadnought armed with Assault Cannon / Auto Cannon, a Meltagun and a Power Fist / Power Claw.

The Dreadnought DLC also includes three new multiplayer maps Desolation, Dome Mechanicus and Chem Refinery, as well as new achievements and trophies. The content costs 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99.

The Dreadnought content is coming to Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on January 25.

Additionally, all players get a new multiplayer Capture and Control Mode for free.

“Fans of Space Marine have been asking for vehicles for a while so we are delighted to be bringing the iconic Dreadnought and Chaos Dreadnought to consoles for the first time in this DLC content," said Jim Huntley, Vice President of Global Brand Management.
