Rockstar Games has announced that brand new downloadable content for Midnight Club: Los Angeles arrived March 12 for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Two different downloads will be available, a free South Central Map Expansion pack and a South Central Premium Upgrade.

The free South Central Map Expansion will expand Midnight Club: Los Angeles by one full third, adding four new neighborhoods and expanding the play options in the new South Central region.

The South Central Premium Upgrade is an entirely new experience for Midnight Club. South Central will serve up 9 new vehicles, 26 new races, 12 new battle maps, 10 new delivery missions, over 100 new red light races, new vinyl packs, new parts, new music and a bunch of other surprises. Not too shabby for $9.99.

Fortunately, the free South Central Map Expansion was designed to ensure that every racer with either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 copies of the game can race online against players that have the South Central Premium Upgrade. So, free Midnight Club South Central owners can play with the premium folks without having to upgrade to the pay version. It's an excellent marketing strategy that other game companies will hopefully also adopt.
