Punk-Inspired Outfits

To wrap things up, we’ve got a new set of punk-inspired clothing only for Rivals owners. Like the Metal Assets released in the Rivals December Update, there will be more original clothing in the new March Update! Whether it’s the Top to Bottom or Tail from the Road outfits, you’ll find yourself looking the part. You can even have some new dreads with the Locked Up hairstyle.

Looking good! To wrap up, let’s give you all a breakdown. Rivals owners get sweet new songs. They also get the punk-inspired assets. That’s the outfits and hair. Meanwhile, EVERYONE gets the Mass Effect items and Archer character. That means you can go into space or be a secret agent if you’re on Rivals or 4.
