With Monster Jam Showdown around the corner, Milestone has revealed post-launch plans for the officially licensed monster truck game. After the game launches in August, Monster Jam fans can look forward to a mix of free and premium DLC over the next eight months.

Monster Jam Showdown's post-launch plans confirmed

One of the highlights will be an expansion set in the Hawaiian wilderness of Aloha. Launching in December, the expansion will contain six tracks, with a stunt-filled arena and an XP boost multiplier to level up faster.

A roadmap confirms players can also look forward to an array of free and premium content packs between September and March, with one of the premium packs focusing on the fan-favorite Grave Digger.

A season pass bundling every premium pack will also be available, presumably for a lower price. To Milestone’s credit, no Monster Jam game has enjoyed this level of post-launch support before, so it sounds promising. Milestone supported the Hot Wheels Unleashed games with a host of DLC packs and expansions, and Monster Jam Showdown will be no different.

Monster Jam fans will be able to get behind the wheel of the sport's most iconic machines with a roster of 66 trucks, from classics like the Monster Mutt Retro to the world-famous Grave Digger, performing wild stunts in the Freestyle mode from wheelies to donuts.

40 trucks will be included in the base game, while 26 will be available through free or premium DLCs. Outside of the arenas, players can tear around three environments in MotorStorm-esque off-road races.

Powered by Unreal Engine 5, Monster Jam Showdown will launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on August 29, 2024. Those who pre-order the Big Air Edition will get three days of early access from August 26.
