New Dead Island DLC to Launch on November 22nd

Deep Silver (the creators of the surprise hit Dead Island), just announced that the
new DLC for Dead Island will be
titled “Bloodbath Arena” and will be released on November 22nd.  It sounds like the DLC will add a hoard-
type mode, with the addition of four new arenas and a new weapon.  News that Dead Island is doing this shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as many
of the holiday games that are coming out or have already been released in the past
weeks have had a similar type of mode (Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3, Modern
Warfare 3, etc.), and with Dead
’s success, it seems natural that they would follow suit. 

The DLC will be released at the lower DLC price of $9.99, but the
question that I want to ask is not whether people are still playing Dead Island
or not (because the replayability is there), but whether or not this is
something that players would want to purchase?  At least in recent memory, Gears of War 2 (an exceptional
game) brought the idea of Horde mode to prominence, and with all of the other
triple-A titles releasing equivalent wave based modes, is 10 dollars the
right price to charge for this mode?
