on October 6, 2010 5:00 PM

DualShockers has already showed you Chuck as the Sports Fanatic. Ready for more? Capcom is upping the ante for Dead Rising 2 and the various ways to put down some zombies while looking good doing it. DLC Theme Packs with all new skills, weapons and some great new looks for Chuck are on the way to Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. Want to dress Chuck as an insane Psychopath or a kick-ass soldier? Capcom has you covered. Plus you can mix and match all of your accessories. Here is a rundown of everything you can get:

Psychopath Theme Pack: Available October 12, 2010
Psycho Chuck will be a zombie’s worst nightmare as his new “insane” look will make him more difficult to kill and give him a host of gruesome weapons including chainsaws, cleavers, axes and more. Zombies won’t stand a chance!

Soldier of Fortune Theme Pack: Available October 19, 2010
With the soldier costume, you can “Rambo out” with double ammo, increased shooting accuracy, more firepower and increased head-shot accuracy. Chuck will also have a new special attack when using automatic weapons, spraying zombies with a hail of bullets.

Sports Theme Pack: Available 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…

Silent Assassin

Ninja Theme Pack: Available 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. Stack-able items and throwing items (nails, plates, gems, etc.) will also do more damage and Chuck’s throwing speed is increased.
