Welcome back to a surprise special edition of the VCII Community BLiTZ! After the amazing reception we had from you guys here on the blogs, we wanted to keep you up to speed on how Valkyria is doing, both in reviews and in stores, and let you know how you can help the war effort keep pushing forward.
First off, let’s talk about the reviews. What do the critics (and gamers) think of VCII?
Right now, the game is averaging a score of 81 on Metacritic, which is fantastic – here’s to hoping that number will rise even higher.
The first week
We’re happy to announce that Valkyria’s first week in stores was a good one, with fans all across the US picking up the game both physically and digitally. The game is also now available in the UK, so for all of you who spend with pounds instead of dollars, get out there and grab a copy!
We’d like to thank everyone who did their part, and likewise to urge those who haven’t picked it up yet to do so – the first battle went very well, but the war is far from over. Every copy picked up helps us prove that Valkyria Chronicles is a series that deserves even more attention here in the west, and it’s a cause that many of us here are happy to fight for.
New VCII DLC coming out this month!
We’ve mentioned in the past that there was DLC planned here in the west, but today we’re happy to specify that DLC will actually be arriving this month! All of it will be coming together in one huge pack, and we’ll have details on how many missions that pack will give you, as well as the cost next week!
The value you’ll get for the missions in the pack is huge, and today we’re going to unveil the first mission included in the DLC pack, as well as give away a special free code for all of you who need a little more Squad 7 love in your team!

The first of the DLC missions included in our pack will also take you back to Mellvere – though the challenge will be unlike any you remember from the initial campaign!
Who scored that one-of-a-kind signed Developments Artbook from the Valkyria Chronicles Team? Give your congrats to user mowmow, who wrote:
You rock, mowmow – thanks for helping spread the word!
Coming next week
Check back in next Monday as the Special Edition BLiTZ continues on, with news on the second DLC mission you’ll get in the upcoming pack, and another new code for a special, unlockable tank sticker! Every day next week we’re going to be giving away a new code for something special!
Rumor has it that fans of a certain azure witch from the original Valkyria Chronicles should also keep their eyes peeled next week – we’ve got all sorts of awesome lined up to say thank you for supporting VCII.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
