-Quick Review-
Frontier Colonies Map Pack has two new multiplayer maps: Desolation and Overseer. They both were pretty cool... too bad you can't play them since Games for Windows Live was shuttered by Microsoft.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: There's no addition, subtraction, or multiplication to the story.

Gameplay: words words words

Achievements: There are no achievements tied to this DLC.

Price: Section 8: Prejudice – Frontier Colonies Map Pack is priced at 3.99, I ended up with mine because of the Content Pack for $9.99.

Conclusion: Nearly all of the DLC for Section 8: Prejudice is a skip, it either doesn't work, or is an aesthetic for multiplayer that you probably won't use because the community just isn't there.
A pity though, Section 8: Prejudice is a good game, and those that have played it tend to speak highly of it. If you're interested in getting the core game, I suggest you do, feel free to read my review, the link is bellow.

If you didn't read my main review, the multiplayer is dead, don't bother. Also because GFWL is dead you can't actually play the maps.

DO NOT PURCHASE.
You cannot play these maps AT ALL, online or offline, and you cannot get a refund.

As others have mentioned you can't play this content online, but what was not clear was whether or not you could play it OFFLINE.

The content is delivered via steam, however it's supposed to be unlocked via GFWL, which only operates as a means to store the single player campaign save data as of the time of this posting. It will NOT let you unlock this content.

Great game, but the mappack DLC are no longer available from Games for Windows - Live. Do NOT purchase this product, as it is money wasted. I only put this here because Steam does not warn consumers about this.

S8:P is a great game plagued by Games for Windows Live. Since Microsoft shuttered GfWL, you are unable to use any of the DLC, and it is extremely doubtful a fix will ever be forthcoming since Gearbox killed Timegate.

The two multiplayer maps that this gives are huge and full of details. This is for online play but can be played in Offiline mode. Its a great addition to the game and if you plan to play multiplayer then don't miss out on this extra content.
