  • DriveClub Japan DLC Released

    driveclub japan dlcDriveClub developers Evolution Studios have taken to social media to announce a brand new DLC pack that has just launched for their game. The DLC pack, named DriveClub Japan, features a variety of tracks located in Japan.

    What’s most exciting about the news from all this though is that the DLC pack will be put up for free, and all players will be able to get in game and download it. Evolution Studios seem to be pretty thankful of the community feedback at the moment, and as a result it looks like the Japan DLC will be our thank you gift.

    In a post on their Facebook page, Evolution Studios wrote, "Along with our own research and gameplay data analysis, your input has been a big help in shaping all of the tracks we're developing for Japan. Especially the many, many requests for an epic point-to-point like this and for wider tracks to make fighting for position less frustrating, particularly in online races."

    On top of the new free Japan DLC pack, Evolution Studios have confirmed that an expansion pack will be releasing later in January. The second expansion pack for January has been named the Apex expansion, and will fall into the season pass. This pack includes a bunch of new cars, such as the Jaguar C-X75 Concept, Enzo Ferrari and Caterham R500 Superlight.

    Are you happy to hear that Evolution Studios are handing out free DriveClub DLC? Once you’ve managed to try out the Japan tracks, feel free to stop by here and let us know your thoughts on them.

  • New Battlefield Hardline Details Unveiled

    battlefield hardline mapsEA has just revealed a bunch of new bits of information about their upcoming game, Battlefield Hardline, including details about new maps, weapons and equipment.

    Firstly, the two newly announced maps have been named as Bloodout and Hollywood Hills. As you can imagine, the latter of these two maps places players in a large Hollywood villa. Whilst the level is considerably smaller than some others, the large size of the villa will give players enough space to breathe in.

    The other map, Bloodout, is a set of inner city streets based on real life Los Angeles. The difference between Battlefield Hardline's depiction of LA and the real life LA is that there is a lot more debris, wrecked cars and scrap in Battlefield, as can be expected.

    In other news, Steve Papoutsis, Vice president of Visceral Games and Battlefield Hardline, revealed that there will be a total of 51 weapons and 38 gadgets in Battlefield Hardline. Considering players have access to primary and special weapons, I'd expect we'd be left with a lineup of around 20 different primary weapons to pick from.

    On top of the large variety of weapons, a massive 27 new vehicles are being added to Hardline, although a large pool of these may be varying civilian vehicles or variations of vehicles already in the Battlefield franchise.

    Are you excited to hear about all of the new features in Battlefield Hardline? The game will be releasing on March 17th, so we haven't got too long to wait.

  • Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition Available for Pre-order

    sniper 3 ultimate editionIf you're a fan of the Sniper franchise, you may want to look into picking up the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition. The extended collector's edition of the game will include various extra digital features that are not available with the base game.

    Unfortunately, there will not be any additional physical content for the Ultimate Edition of Sniper 3, so in a sense, purchasing the Ultimate Edition serves as buying the season pass for the game.

    Inside of the Ultimate Edition, players will receive a 3 part 'Save Churchill' DLC. On top of the DLC, six different weapons packs will be included. The weapons packs available in the Sniper 3 Ultimate Edition have been listed below.

    Hunter Weapons Pack
    Camouflage Weapons Pack
    Patriot Weapons Pack
    Sniper Rifles Weapons Pack
    Axis Weapons Pack
    Eastern Front Weapons Pack

    Additionally to the above content, the Ultimate pack will allow players to access a few new multiplayer modes, including The Shooting Range for single player, the Twilight Strike Overwatch Mission for co-op play, and Capture the Flag for multiplayer.

    Finally, the Ultimate Edition will receive new multiplayer maps, all six of which have been listed.

    Night Watch
    Outpost Canyon
    Plantation
    Lost Valley
    Airstrip
    Fracture

    I find it a little odd that some of this content hasn't been included in the base game, and whilst it's nice to have an easy-access package to all of the Sniper 3 DLC, it's a shame that modes like capture the flag or the Twilight Strike Overwatch mission aren't already available for free.

  • Digital Pre-orders for Evolve Will Reward Players Free Content

    digital evolve pre-ordersIf you are looking to buy Evolve, you may want to consider getting a pre-order in. The developers of Evolve have just announced that the game has gone gold, and to celebrate they are offering some in-game rewards for anybody that chooses to pre-order the digital copy of the game.

    If you pre-order the digital version of Evolve on the Xbox One, you will be given free access to the open beta that is going to take place on January 15th. This beta will included one monster named Wraith, and four hunters, named Parnell, Abe, Caira and Cabot.

    As well as having a little sneaky access to this content in the beta version of Evolve, players who pre-order the digital version of the game for Xbox One will also be given the same five characters at launch for free, straight from day one.

    Those who do not pre-order Evolve, or who play on another platform, will need to unlock the aforementioned characters to be able to play as them.

    This seems like a nice deal for those who want to support the game by pre-ordering, but it oddly is only available for digital pre-orders. If you have already pre-ordered a physical copy then you will not be given early access to the five hunters and the one monster once the game has launched later this year.

    Do you think it's smart for Microsoft to offer a deal such as this, or do you think they should open up the pre-order bonuses to all versions and platforms of Evolve?

  • All Destiny Players Given Free Legendary Item

    destiny legendary itemSome players are excited, some are frustrated, but the truth is, Bungie have tried to give something back to the community as a 'thank you' for the continued support the large majority of Destiny players have given to the game since it's launch.

    This 'thank you' is in the form of a legendary weapon - every player can now hop into game, no matter what version of the game you are playing, and go speak to the postmaster to pick up a free legendary.

    Whilst legendaries have proven to be pretty hard to get in the game, this is the first time Bungie have given players such easy access to a legendary weapon, and it's just any old legendary weapon either.

    The item from the postmaster will reward players with a ticket that will be randomly converted into any legendary item in the game. Legendaries aren't as rare as exotic, but it still takes a lot of farming, or a lot of luck to land upon your first legendary item, so some players are frustrated that Bungie have handed out something of such rarity for free.

    However, it looks as if there may be a certain limit to what weapons are rewarded from the ticket, so don't fret too much, chances are your current legendary gear will remain as rare as it always has been.

    Do you think it was a good move for Bungie to give out a free legendary weapon to every player, or do you think players should have been rewarded with something a little less special instead?

  • Far Cry 4 DLC Gets January Release Date

    far cry 4 dlcIt has been revealed that the first DLC of Far Cry 4 from Ubisoft will be released in January 13th. The new DLC pack has been named Escape from Durgesh Prison, and it will include a variety of new features.

    For those that have purchased the $29.99 season pass, Escape from Durgesh Prison will be available for free, however other players will need to pay $9.99 to play through it. In Escape from Durgesh Prison, Far Cry protagonist Ajay Ghale will be partnered up with Hurk, a slightly mad veteran players may recognize from Far Cry 3.

    As you can expect, players will need to try to escape a prison in the upcoming Far Cry 4 DLC, and this can be done solo or co-operatively with a friend or stranger online. So far, details are still on the low as far as length and story goes for the new DLC, but it has been confirmed that there will be a unique permadeath setting for the DLC.

    When a player dies in Escape from Durgesh Prison, they will be forced to start again from the beginning, and the gameplay has been set out in a way that encourages players to learn how to get through each scenario successfully each and every time without dying.

    Because of the permadeath feature I can't imagine Escape from Durgesh Prison will be that long if played without dying, but I also expect that it will take at least a few hours to perfect the DLC content without you or your friend being killed.

  • COD Advanced Warfare Zombies Trailer Released

    cod advanced warfare zombiesIn anticipation of the release of the new Havoc DLC planned for the end of January, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare developers, Sledgehammer Games, have just released a new trailer for the upcoming Exo Zombies game mode, which will be made available as part of the upcoming DLC.

    Interestingly, the trailer shares a bit of a backstory into why there is a sudden zombie outbreak, and why a group of soldiers are attempting to hold off the relentless hordes. In the trailer, the story is explained -

    "Untrained and unprepared, four Atlas employees must survive a horror unlike any other. John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal star in Exo Zombies, coming to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC in 2015."

    It seems as if the zombies mode will be released as an episodic co-operative multiplayer mode. Whilst we aren't entirely sure, it would make sense to assume that each episode of the zombies mode will release alongside each piece of DLC for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

    For zombie fans, I think that the new zombie mode in Advanced Warfare is worth getting excited about - the game will feature a new twist on the tried and trusted zombies gameplay we have seen in previous COD games by adding super fast exo zombies that make use of the exo skeleton featured in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

    So far, we aren't sure how much content players will be able to play through in the first episode of exo zombies, but hopefully there will be maps that players can play a more traditional round based version of zombies on.

  • Killer Instinct 1 Gets Online Multiplayer

    killer instinct 1 onlineRecently, Microsoft pushed out an Xbox One port of Killer Instinct 1 as part of the new season for the latest Killer Instinct game on the console, and now they are putting a little bit of love into it to pay homage to all those that played the original Killer Instinct on the Super Nintendo.

    In a new patch, that has recently gone live, Killer Instinct 1 now has online multiplayer capabilities, and players can jump in game to play against other players from across the world. As well as the new online features, Microsoft added a few new changes to Killer Instinct 1, all of which can be read in the patch notes below.

    - We updated the front page of Ultra-combo.com. If you scroll down to the Season 1 Changelist, you can now see an image of the Story Mode Mural!
    - Riptor's correct Ultra Music is not playing because of a bug. We're trying to fix that via patch before the next Content Update.
    - When you unlock a Story Mode XP bonus, that XP is Player XP only (not Character XP also).
    - There is a known issue with Story Mode XP sometimes unlocking, but not depositing. We're investigating a fix for that as well.

    These new changes to Killer Instinct 1 come hand in hand with the recent announcement of the reintroduction of Riptor to the latest Killer Instinct game in season 2. Riptor is a part human part velociraptor, who made his first appearance in Killer Instinct 1.

  • Call of Duty Havoc DLC Gets Release Date

    call of duty havoc dlcIt has now been confirmed that the Call of Duty Havoc DLC, the first upcoming downloadable content pack for Advanced Warfare will be released on the 29th of this month. The new DLC pack will include a variety of new maps, as well as a few new additions, including a game mode brand new to Advanced Warfare.

    The four maps have been named as Sideshow, Urban, Core and Drift. Sideshow looks to be shanty town based within a cargo ship, whilst Urban is a city area packed with buildings. Core takes place in a sandy drilling station and Drift is in a small snow town.

    As well as the new maps, the Havoc DLC pack includes two new weapons, the AE4 Widowmaker, and a direct variation of the Widowmaker. Season pass holders were given the gun early, but those who buy the DLC without the season pass will still be able to pick up the gun when the DLC launches at the end of January.

    The last piece of content, and perhaps most exciting in the Havoc DLC is the new exo zombies mode. It's expected that the exo zombies mode will be similar to the zombie modes in previous Call of Duty games, although we will most likely see the introduction of exo zombies, which run much faster than normal zombies, to the game mode in Advanced Warfare.

    Are you looking forward to the Havoc DLC? I think the four maps will be great, and the new zombie mode just tops it off.

  • Rumors Stir Around New Rare AAA Game

    It's always exciting to hear what Microsoft's best development studio, Rare is up to these days. They have made classics like Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata, and have also thrown out dozens of other playful games suitable for the whole family.

    Rare's most recent attempts have been within the world of Kinect, and they have released a various of sports and other active games compatible with the Kinect for the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, most gamers weren't really interested in Rare when all of their effort went into these kind of games, but in a new light, Microsoft has realized that Rare deserves to be doing something a bit more exciting with their time.

    Que dozens of rumors now spreading the internet because of a small job listing Rare has posted on their website following the development shift for the studio. On the job listing, it states that Rare are looking for an animator that has "high quality animation skills that include movement in bipedal animation, quadruped and facial animation."

    The two things here that have sparked a lot of talk are the words "bipedal and quadruped." Whilst animation for a two legged character is fairly normal, "quadruped" suggests that Rare may be planning to create a big bunch of four legged characters in their next upcoming AAA game.

    Honestly, it could be anything, but it sounds as if Rare are looking for animators to create animals. Does this mean we will see another Viva Pinata game? Or maybe a brand new Banjo Kazooie? It is hard to say, but it's possible it could be either of these or something entirely different.
