, which will launch later this year for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The Severed DLC pack will add two additional single-player chapters to the game that run concurrently with Isaac’s story.

The exact date and pricing of the pack has not been announced but is listed as “coming soon” by EA. THe announcement was made for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game; a PC version has not been announced at this time.
