We've not seen the last of The Last Remnant, as Square Enix drops the details on not one but four different packs of downloadable content coming to Xbox Live Marketplace in December. The first two free packs, Challenge Pack 1: "Purgatory's Sins" and "The Key of Ancient Ruins" will be release on December first, with the former containing a new set of difficult guild challenges and the latter introducing a new area to explore. Then December 15th sees the release of the "March to War" set, which is the three special pre-order formations for 100 MS points. Finally, on December 22nd they release Challenge Pack 2: "The Price Of Lies", which is as free as the first one. Note that all of these dates are for gold Xbox Live Members, with silver members getting access a week later. I'm having nightmares about the game's difficulty as it is, so the prospect of more difficult missions?

I cannot wait to see your take on the game, because every review is showing how buggy the gameplay is, and how horrible the framerate is during battle and certain parts of the game. I was really hoping for this to be a great game, but seeing all of these issues that Square-Enix has with the Unreal 3 Engine, it just deters me from wanting to buy, or even try it.
Hopefully they will release some updates to improve these performance issues.
