    Soldier of Fortune Theme Pack (Releasing on October 19, 2010)

    With the soldier costume, you can “Rambo out” with double ammo, increased shooting accuracy, more firepower and increased headshot accuracy.  Chuck will also have a new special attack when using automatic weapons, spraying zombies with a hail of bullets.

    Sports Theme Pack (Releasing on October 26, 2010)

    For all you sports fans out there, this pack’s for you. Chuck’s damage will increase with sports-themed weapons. The new sports weapons (golf balls, basketballs, etc.) bounce more before stopping, allowing you to hit tons of zombies in one throw.  Chuck also has a new charge/tackle attack for taking zombies down in the ultimate blitz!

    With the Sports Theme Pack, Chuck will also earn more from gambling, gain more health while eating and drinking (especially alcoholic drinks) and not get sick from drinking too much…

    Ninja Theme Pack (Releasing on November 2, 2010)

    Ninja Chuck will have a new “stealth mode” where the zombies have to be much closer to him to detect his presence. This gives Chuck the upper hand as he is harder to grab and be taken down by hoards of the undead.

    Chuck’s damage is increased with sword-type weapons (broadswords, katanas, etc.) that have new special attacks. Stackable items and throwing items (nails, plates, gems, etc.) will also do more damage and Chuck’s throwing speed is increased.
