  • 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.

  • Dead Kings DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity Detailed

    dead kings dlcUbisoft have just released more information on the first of many upcoming DLC releases planned for Assassin's Creed Unity. The DLC in question has been named Dead Kings, and it will feature a new story, new enemies and even a new weapon.

    Dead Kings takes place right after the ending of Unity, following Arno as he leaves Paris for another city named Saint Denis. In this city, a series of underground crypts has been rumored to keep the bodies of dead French kings.

    As you can imagine, the Dead Kings DLC will follow Arno as he makes his way down into the crypt. Arno will fight against other crypt raiders, as well as having access to an interestingly named Guillotine gun.

    On top of the new single player story, there will be some new open world activities, including new murder mysteries, enigmas and a few co-op missions as well.

    If you were unaware, the Dead Kings DLC has been put up for free by Ubisoft as an apology gift for the games terrible launch. On top of this, season pass holders will be given a free game as a reward for buying into Assassin's Creed Unity.

    Out of the free games, season pass holders can choose between The Crew, Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Rayman Legends or Just Dance 2014.

    Will you be picking up a free game from the list above? If so, which game will you aim for? I definitely think Far Cry 4 and The Crew are the top picks, but Watch Dogs and AC: Black Flag could be a good choice if you've already got the other two games.

  • 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.

  • January PlayStation Plus Lineup revealed

    january playstation plusThe new PlayStation Plus lineup for January of 2015 has now been announced, and it looks as if gamers will be able to treat themselves to a nice library of free games throughout the month across all current Sony consoles.

    It was already confirmed last month that the PS4 lineup for January would include the standalone DLC for Infamous: Second Son, as well as The Swapper. For those unaware, Infamous is one of the more popular action series exclusive to the PlayStation, and Second Son was held as one of the best PS4 games of 2014.

    A little later, Infamous developers, Sucker Punch Productions, released a standalone DLC for Second Son called Infamous: Last Light - this small story based DLC gave players a taste of what the full game was like, as well as expanding on the Second Son story for those that had already played the game.

    The Swapper is another interesting game, and it will be made available across all platforms via Cross-Buy this month.

    As for the PS Vita and the PlayStation 3 - Sony's handheld console will be treated to free copies of Whoa Dave!, a great retro arcade game, and Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition. If you live in Germany, your free copy of Duke Nukem will be replaced with a much more family-friendly Gravity Clash Ultra.

    PlayStation 3 PS Plus subscribers will be gifted with Prototype 2 and DuckTales Remastered, both of which are pretty awesome games so we'd definitely suggest checking those two out if you haven't played them already.

  • 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.

  • Forza Horizon 2 Storm Island DLC Released

    forza horizon 2 storm island - CopyTurn 10 Studios have just released a new DLC pack for Forza Horizon 2, and it looks pretty interesting. Called Storm Island, this new expansion adds extreme weather, extreme rough terrain and a roster of new cars.

    On top of the aforementioned content, the new Storm Island DLC will include a few new game modes and events, which will be accessible in-game once the DLC has been purchased.

    The Storm Island DLC costs $19.99 for standard players and $9.99 for Forza Horizon 2 VIP members, and will include new off road areas, harsh weather and six new off-road vehicles that have been built specifically to deal with the new punishing terrain.

    On top of this, Storm Island will include over 80 new events and 23 achievements have been added through this pack which can net players an extra 500 Gamerscore.

    Interestingly, Forza and Turn 10 community manager Brian Ekberg revealed that the new DLC will only be supported on the Xbox One, as development for the Xbox 360 port has mostly halted.

    In line with the lack of new DLC for the Xbox 360, all other new content, rewards and loyalty programs for Forza Horizon 2 have been made exclusively for the Xbox One version of the game.

    Ekberg has stated previously that, "Forza Rewards benefits are only available in the Xbox One version of Forza Horizon 2. This means that Xbox 360 players will not receive Forza Rewards credits or cars. In addition, progress in the 360 version of Forza Horizon 2 does not count towards your Forza Rewards Tier Level score."

  • New Havoc DLC Shown for Advanced Warfare

    havoc dlc for advanced warfare - CopySledgehammer Games are gearing up to release their first ever DLC for their top selling COD title, Advanced Warfare, and from what we have seen so far, there is quite a lot to get excited about.

    Whilst many DLCs from the Call of Duty franchise have exclusively contained a variety of new maps, the new Havoc DLC for Advanced Warfare contains some extra content as well as the expected new map lineup.

    In the new DLC reveal trailer, two new guns have been revealed as part of the Havoc DLC, both of which are available as early access content for Xbox One players. The first weapon is the AE4 assault rifle, an energy gun that has a similar design to the energy shotgun and other energy rifle already in the game.

    The second new weapon in the Havoc DLC pack for Advanced Warfare is the AE4 Widowmaker, a custom variant of the same energy assault rifle model.

    So far, we do not know what new maps will be revealed for Havoc, but we expect that Sledgehammer Games will include two to three new maps within the Havoc DLC for Advanced Warfare.

    Once we have more information, we shall let you know, but for now we only have the new official Havoc weapons trailer to go on.

    What do you think about the new DLC for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare? Do you think it would be worth splashing out cash for the new content, or would you prefer to make do with the maps and weapons already in the game from the beginning?

  • Riptor Returns as New Killer Instinct Character

    riptor killer instinctSince the launch of Killer Instinct for the Xbox One, the developers behind the game have been slowly releasing more content for it over time. Perhaps the most exciting part of any new content releases for Killer Instinct are the introduction of new characters, or more specifically in this case, the re-introduction of characters from the franchise that did not make it into the game at launch.

    One such character is Riptor, and Microsoft Studios have just revealed their plans to bring him to the new Killer Instinct on the Xbox One. Riptor featured in the original Killer Instinct game, and is a hybrid between a human and a velociraptor. The character stands out from the crowd of other humanoid fighters in the game, not only for it's appearance, but for it's unique move set as well.

    Riptor will be entering the new Killer Instinct as part of the Killer Instinct 2 DLC, which will put players back a total of $19.99 for the Combo Breaker Season 2 pack, and a total of $39.99 for the Ultra Edition Season 2 pack.

    In the $20 bundle, players will get access to eighter fighters, five of which have so far been confirmed to be TJ Combo, Maya, Cinder, the new Kan-Ra, and now Riptor.

    The $40 pack includes the same characters, but also comes with some new accessories, as well as a copy of Killer Instinct 2 Classic which will be playable on the Xbox One.

  • GTA V Heists DLC Finally Revealed ... Hopefully

    GTA V Heists DLCI can't be sure whether this is a practical joke by Rockstar, or someone at their office decided to start April fools a whole four months early, but according to reports, Rockstar are gearing up to release their patch notes for a new update this month, and the exciting part is that they will contain the long awaited GTA Online heist missions.

    Rockstar did of course mentioned fairly recently that the first update to come after the release of the new console ports would include the new GTA heists, but after waiting so long, it's almost quite hard to believe.

    However, in the new patch notes for an update planned for December 23rd, it looks as if heists will be making their way to GTA Online, alongside other game changes. Unfortunately, this information only comes from a 'tipster' from within the development team, so we can't promise that any of this information is true or not.

    Interestingly, Rockstar has tried to cover up any spread information of the new update leaks, so we won't be posting the full details, however a quick patch summary can be read below.

    Heist (Planning Board) layout update for both High-End apartment interiors. This will be available across all platforms.

    Brand new 'Heist' selection menu featuring it's own Social Club-based leaderboard and misc options showing the list of un-completed Heist missions). This will be available across all platforms.

    34 Texture Modifications to 4 different locations, this is in favour of added effect during Heist missions. This will be available across all platforms but the texture detail is improved on current-generation.

    6 Heist missions in 4 unique locations.

    5 Cops and Crooks missions in 4 unique locations.

    Improved anti-cheat methods. Some code for this is included in the DLC, but is not associated with the Heist feature itself.

    Three brand new vehicles. The names of these vehicles are still identified by their Dev tag and are not yet finalized but the approximate vehicle class is; Sports Classic and Sports.

    Brand new Apartment - CCTV function with two AI-characters in your apartment running them. This feature is available for current-generation only.

    Three Heist-themed clothing items - these items are still identified by their Dev tag but are the following types; Special Outfit (available from the counter).
    Two Cops and Crooks-themed masks. These mask items are available in current-generation only.

    BZ Gas will now be purchasable from Ammu-Nation but can only be used in Heist missions - you are responsible for stocking-up on these and if you run out, your team mates will need to complete that objective for you.

    5 new hairstyles - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    2 new contact lenses - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    Additional matchmaking for Heist missions between Crews - this is a feature implemented in 1.17 but will be activated in 1.19/1.05.

    A new phone contact named 'Jeff' will be available, offering a chance to resurrect a killed-off Crew member during your Heist operation. The voice of this contact or any other options associated are still unknown at this point.

    Last-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.

    Current-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission and have the ability to print those out in your Apartment and store in your documents, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.
    All players will have the ability to use their Heist planning board in order to select a location, chosen online-Crew members and their role and the length of time before the Heist request expires from their 'Email' app on their phone.

  • Destiny's DLC The Dark Below Breaks Weekly’s and Heroics

    Destiny DLC The Dark BelowEver since the release of Destiny, Bungie have been filling the game with variations on different challenges each week. These weekly challenges are something that often keep players coming back for more, and these, alongside other timed challenges such as the heroic missions are the core of end-game gameplay.

    Unfortunately, the new Destiny DLC, the Dark Below, has caused some trouble with the way weekly's and heroics work, and many Destiny players have sparked outrage in the Destiny community.

    Currently, because of the way the Dark Below works, often the weekly missions and heroics are selected for the new DLC areas, which prevents any non-paying members from getting their hands on their weekly challenges.

    The only solution for players at this point in time is to purchase the $19.99 DLC, and without doing so weekly's will remain locked out for those players. Honestly, I don't see Bungie doing this purposely, and I'm sure it will be addressed shortly. Still, I do think it is a little unfair for those players that have supported the game since day one.

    I do hope that Bungie either add non-DLC weekly's and heroics to the game, or remove the DLC ones completely, because otherwise the new DLC is essentially locking out content from the game that was originally intended to be part of the original package.

    Many players have already expressed their criticism for Destiny's lack of content, so I can't see any of this going down too well across the internet. Do you think this is as big of a deal as some are making it out to be?
