Asymmetrical multiplayer experience The Texas Chainsaw Massacre recently received some DLC that adds new characters, and it’s now time for you to check our Nancy DLC review! I had a lot of fun playing this one for our The Texas Chainsaw Massacre review, so I was looking forward to seeing what new character Nancy – as well as the new map Nancy’s House – has to offer. Yes, there’s also a new victim you can play as – that would be Danny Gaines – and you can buy him as a new playable character for $9.99.
Nancy is a new member of the Slaughter Family for you to take for a spin. She adopted and raised Jhonny so that he could become the outstanding gentleman that he is. Your $9.99 purchase will add a cunning killer to the available character options. Nancy Sawyer might seem like a kind, old lady, but as those of you who have played the game know, looks can be very deceiving! When playing as a victim, you’re probably used to shimming your way through some very narrow segments of each of the maps, thus avoiding one of the Slaughter Family members, even if for a brief moment. But what if I tell you that Nancy can place traps over said passages?
Her special ability will allow you to spy on the victims by briefly being able to see through a victim’s eyes. This will be very useful for spotting exactly where a victim is – at least if you’re familiar with each level and know each of their spots and items by heart. By knowing where a victim is, you can then communicate with other family members to have them take down a victim. Why couldn’t you just have Nancy attack a victim if he or she is nearby? Because after spying on a victim, Nancy will be stunned for a moment, which will keep her from slashing away at them.
Along with Nancy as a character, we’re also getting Nancy’s House as a new map to play through. Since the game launched with only three maps, having a new map is certainly appreciated. As is the case for other maps, there will be several exits for victims to try to reach as they work as a group, so you’ll have to always be on high alert to keep them from walking out the front exit or cutting the power to the back exit. A group of victims got a bit cocky and tried to escape all at the same time while going through the back exit, but I managed to pummel them to a pulp, one at a time. OK, fine… one of them did manage to escape, but the others learned their lesson!
If you’re enjoying your time with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and enjoy playing as a family member, then getting the Nancy DLC is a no-brainer. You’re getting a new character to play as who can lay traps to keep victims from using tight passages to escape and who is also able to go up and down ladders while also being able to hit trapdoors to reset them. She can’t squeeze through tight passages and doesn’t have much endurance, but she certainly packs a punch. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Nancy DLC is available right now with a $9.99 asking price.
