  • Dead or Alive 5 Last Round has Almost $100 Worth of DLC

    dead or alive 5 last roundWhether or not you're okay with the dozens of dollars worth of DLC content in Evolve generally comes down to how you feel about the whole practice of selling you content after the game has been completed, but it's not just Evolve that features staggering amounts of paid-for content.

    In fact, Team Ninja have recently released details on what new downloadable content will be available in their latest remaster for new gen consoles. I'm of course talking about Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, the game that is a remake of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, which is coincidentally a remake of Dead or Alive 5.

    I'm sure you can see what I'm getting at here. Even though Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is not going for full retail on either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One, the game does include just under $93 worth of DLC.

    Fortunately, practically all of the DLC available is only cosmetic skins and costumes for characters, similarly to a lot of the content players can pay for in Evolve. The $93 price tag for DOA 5: LR is actually for the season pass. If you purchase every piece of DLC in Last Round separately, however, you'll possibly be looking at spending a considerable amount more.

    So, before you get mad at Evolve for trying to milk us of our hard earned cash, just remember, there are games out there that offer 79 character costumes for a crazy $93. Honestly, it's all a bit crazy, but let's just be glad that most of it, both in Evolve and Dead or Alive, is all cosmetic and has no impact on the game whatsoever.

  • House of Wolves Destiny DLC Coming Soon

    house of wolves Destiny DLCIf you are a hardcore Destiny player, you're probably pretty bored of the content the game is offering you right now. Chances are, you've mastered all of the hard raids, hit the light cap, and even the Vault of Glass isn't a challenge for you anymore. If this is you, then you'll be happy to hear that the new House of Wolves Destiny DLC is coming soon.

    Whilst the House of Wolves Destiny DLC was previously announced for march, a new rumor suggests that the content won't be available till May, later in the year. All of this information should be taken with a grain of salt though, it's hard to trust any sources until we've heard it straight from Bungie themselves.

    Either way, the same rumors are suggesting that the House of Wolves Destiny DLC will see gear reaching a maximum light level of 39. Weekly activities will also increase in level. Currently sitting at level 30, most activities like Nightfall will be bumped up to level 32.

    In total, the House of Wolves Destiny DLC should come with a new raid, a new strike, new armor, and of course some more Crucible maps for all those PVP-thirsty players out there.

    Everything is still pretty early days at the moment, and we know how Bungie are with changing their minds about content, so some of this may be true, some of it may not. Either way, the House of Wolves Destiny DLC is coming.

  • Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC Finally Arrives on Xbox

    advanced warfare havocThe first DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has finally arrived on the Xbox, and it can now be picked up for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 as part of an early access deal. The Havoc DLC will also be released for the PC and the PlayStation consoles at some point in February.

    The new Havoc DLC pack comes with a wide range of new content, including four brand new maps, and the anticipated exo zombies survival co-op mode.

    The four maps included in the Havoc DLC are Sideshow, Core, Urban and Drift. Sideshow is a shanty town built within a cargo ship. Core is within a large drilling station, and Drift is a small sized snow town. Finally, Urban is a packed city area.

    Before the Havoc DLC was officially released, two new weapons were also put out as part of the Havoc DLC pack. Season pass players were able to take hold of the weapons in the Havoc DLC earlier in the year. The weapons included a new laser AE4 Widowmaker rifle, and a direct variation of the same weapon.

    The most looked forward to feature in the Havoc DLC is the exo zombies co-op mode though, and similarly to Black Ops 2, the mode will have a set amount of missions players will be able to play through. It has been rumored that more exo zombies content will be released incrementally in each DLC after the Havoc DLC.

  • Master Chief Collection Matchmaking Updates Incoming

    master chief collection matchmakinA new Master Chief Collection update has been planned to improve online matchmaking, but strangely 343 Industries will not make the update available to all players straight away.

    The update, which has since been delayed, was planned to fix many issues with the current in-game matchmaking system. Whilst 343 Industries did mention that they would release the update this month, new plans reveal that most players will not get to experience the update at all.

    Before full release, the matchmaking update will be pushed to a select few US beta participants, and these members will be able to help stress test the matchmaking before it is finally rolled out globally.

    To enter the beta process and be in with a chance of entering the matchmaking beta, you must reside in the US and join the Xbox One preview program. 343 Industries gave a small statement about the update.

    "In recent weeks, we have been conducting extensive internal testing of an upcoming content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection."
    "Given the scale of the update, which includes changes to the matchmaking experience and party system, we are expanding testing to include select members of the Xbox One Preview program to ensure the official release is the best possible experience for all players.
    "The content update beta test is open to Xbox One owners within North America who have a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and have opted-in for Xbox One beta testing as part of the Xbox One Preview program."
    "This is an opt-in opportunity and the content update will only be made available to selected participants within the Xbox One Preview program, based on the highest levels of engagement with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. On Friday, January 23, participants selected will be prompted to download the content update automatically when the title is started."

  • 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."
