Irrational Games announces the release of two new characters for the critically acclaimed tactical comic hero role-playing game Freedom Force. In a unique cross-over bonus, the mesh and skin for two supporting cast members of the horror adventure game The Lost are now available for play in Freedom Force.

The guest characters from The Lost are Shadow and Instinct. Shadow is a silent and deadly thief with an uncanny ability to sneak-attack. He can also turn invisible and grapple his way out of trouble. Instinct is a sword-wielding fighter who excels at melee combat, but lacks long-range attacks.

These characters are available for download at:
