A free DLC update is coming today for Power Rangers: Battle For the Grid, and will introduce many player-requested elements to the game. A new Story Mode is arriving, by acclaimed writer Kyle Higgins, as well as new characters and more. Kyle Higgins wrote Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, Nightwing and Batman: Gates of Gotham. This also features new artwork from Eisner Award-winning Dan Mora (Go Go Power Rangers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Klaus). Players will experience a re-imagined version of the Shattered Grid storyline of the Boom! Studios’ Power Rangers comic series. When Lord Drakkon, an evil alternate version of Tommy Oliver, sets off a massive campaign across time and space to destroy all Power Rangers, they must band together and fight back, before all of existence falls to his armies.
The new content includes story and combat voiceovers performed by original Power Rangers cast members, including Jason David Frank (Tommy Oliver), Austin St. John (Jason Lee Scott), David J. Fielding (Zordon), Kerrigan Mahan (Goldar) and Meghan “Strawburry17” Camarena (Kimberly). There are also four new battle arenas: Corinth and Planet Earth: Cenozoic Era (Selectable) and a few new non-selectable story mode only areas. Those are Command Center (Malfunctioning), and Lord Drakkon’s Throne Room (Flashback).
Finally, there are three new characters enter the world of Battle for the Grid:
- Dragon Armor Trini: When the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were viciously attacked by the Black Dragon, a powerful Zord from another dimension with the capability to warp Ranger powers, they were in for the fight of their lives. After he was defeated, Trini was able to refashion the Zord into a powerful suit of enhanced armor.
- Udonna: Udonna is a powerful sorceress who trains the Mystic Force Power Rangers in the art of magic. As the Mystic Force White Ranger, this accomplished sorceress uses the power of snow to freeze evil.
- Cenozoic Blue Ranger: The Cenozoic Blue Ranger was a loyal and powerful soldier who served with Zordon, the original Red Ranger. Eons after his tragic demise at the hands of the traitorous Green Ranger Rita Repulsa, his Power Coin was found by a teenager named Billy Cranston, who then took on the Blue Ranger mantle.
