Marvel: Ultimate Alliance DLC

  • Level   1

Just wondering if the Hero/Villain pack was still available for download through Live. Recently got the game again after having established a Live account and was really hoping to get the DLC.  Same for M:UA2.  I see the teaser stuff, but that's only for online play with someone who already has the original packs. Is it still possible to get the original DLC packs? Thanks for any help!

    Unfortunately, those DLC packs are no longer available on the marketplace. The only way to get them now is to get a hold of the "gold" version of the games that include the DLC on the disk.

    What if you paid for and downloaded the content years ago?  My system cannot seem to access the DLC even though i have it bought and installed on my system?  I recently started replaying the game BC im a huge comic book nerd and the DLC was a great booster to the game.  Is there anyway to get the DLC or @ the very least some sort of reimbursement for the $$ i spent ?

    Check your download history - support.microsoft.com/.../962228  You should be able to redownload it from there. There are no reimbursements when content is removed from the marketplace.

    Playable Hero Pack (480 MSP) [No longer available]

    Playable Villain Pack (480 MSP) [No longer available]

    Can anyone file share with me the DLC content for MUA 2?

    • Level   1

    Can we vote or something to get the dlc back

    • Level   V

    It was pulled because of licensing issues so voting probably wouldn't bring it back. You'd have to contact the developer's about trying to get it back.
