The St. Valentine's Day Massacre Pack was the first and only piece of downloadable content (DLC) made available for Ace of Spades. It was purchased through Steam, and required the main Ace of Spades game be installed in order to play. It was released on February 14th, 2013.

In the Battle Builder Update, the DLC was made free, most likely because of complaints that no one played it.

The St Valentine’s Day Massacre pack was inspired by the gang conflicts of 1920's, prohibition era Chicago. Specifically, the DLC was inspired by the St. Valentines day massacre that occurred on the 14th February 1929 during the height of a conflict between the North Side Gang, led by Bugs Moran, and the South Side Gang, led by Al Capone.

The DLC included new Game Modes, Maps, and Classes, along with their Weapons and Equipment.
