A new map & a bevy of stylish cosmetics arrive in Bleeding Edge's latest patch

More On: Bleeding Edge

A slender amount of launch content was one of the chief criticisms laid at the feet of Bleeding Edge upon arrival.  Less than two months later, a new character, a new map, and new cosmetic items are slowly ameliorating that issue.  The map is called Hydrocore.  Ninja Theory is calling it their "first compact map" set in a hydro-powered generator.  The catch?  Objective B flows down a central waterway between the A & C objective nodes.  It'll be interesting to see how that translates into the overall chaos.

There's plenty more to go over, whether it's the max character level rising to 30 or basic bug fixes.  If interested in learning more about Bleeding Edge's biggest update yet, click 'Read More' to see all of the details included.
