  • Patch 2.2.0 Hits Diablo 3

    diablo 3 patch 2.2.0A brand new patch has been applied to all versions of Diablo 3 across all platforms. Patch 2.2.0 adds a range of different changes to the game, including tweaks to the Quality of Life, new item additions and general updates.

    The most noticeable update will be the three new sets which have been added to the game. These three sets include Wrath of the Wastes for Barbarian, Unhallowed Essence for Demon Hunter, and Delsere's Magnum Opus for Wizard.

    On top of the new sets over 10 of the pre-existing sets have been tweaked, and one class specific set from each class has also been worked on. Blizzard did not go into too much detail about which sets have been changed but they did mention that over 20 new legendary items were added on top of the set changes.

    30 more legendary items previously found in the game have also been adjusted. Looting crafting materials and gems is now easier, regular potions now do not run out and cannot be dropped from monsters.

    Finally, three new treasure goblins have been added to the game, but they can only be found in Adventure mode. Many monsters and Rift Guardians have been edited and several Rift maps have been added in the latest 2.2.0 patch for Diablo 3.

    The latest changes are already live and they will be applied to your game the next time you head into Diablo 3. Whilst the changes to the PC version are similar, the above patch details are in reference to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Diablo 3.

  • Mortal Kombat X DLC Characters Will be "Try before you Buy"

    mortal kombat x dlcThere has been a bit of commotion on the internet this week because NetherRealm announced a feature of Mortal Kombat X that has two sides of the fighting game's community divided. On one half, those that purchased the premium edition or Kombat pack are frustrated, and on the other half, those that only bought the standard edition of the game are equally as pleased.

    The reason for this is because NetherRealm have announced that there will be ways to play the DLC characters for free, without purchasing any DLC at all. As you can imagine, those that have already paid for the DLC are quite mad at NetherRealm for making this decision, but it's important to understand the full picture first.

    Whilst characters like Jason Voorhees and The Predator can be played by playing in the special timed challenge towers, you will only be able to play one of the DLC characters when a premiere tower is live in-game. You also cannot play the DLC characters in versus mode or story mode - they will only be available in the premiere tower for the duration of that tower's presence. Eventually the tower will be swapped out with a standard challenge tower or a premiere tower with a different DLC character in.

    I think this approach is a great route for NetherRealm to take. Mortal Kombat X is going to release on April 14 for the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 and the PC. An old gen version for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be coming later this summer.

  • Batman Arkham Knight Will be Just Shy of 50GB

    batman arkham knight file sizeA new screenshot has confirmed that the upcoming game, Batman Arkham Knight will include a huge install size, taking up to 50GB of hard drive space. If you are planning to play Batman Arkham Knight and your PlayStation 4's hard drive space is becoming limited, you may want to clear some space in anticipation for the game's launch later this year.

    There are plenty of reasons why Batman Arkham Knight will be 50GB on the PlayStation 4. Firstly, the game features an open world, and by the looks of things it is going to be quite a large world. Another thing to take into consideration is that Batman Arkham Knight has some very impressive visuals. The size of the high definition game files is expected to be very large considering the game looks so great.

    In other news, rumors suggest that the Batman Arkham Knight DLC will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 until Fall 2015. Some of this exclusive DLC will include the Scarecrow Nightmare missions, the Justice League 3000 and Classic TV Series Batman costumes and the Classic TV Batmobile skin.

    Whilst we do know the install size of the PlayStation 4 version, we do not know what the Xbox One file size will be. We can't imagine there will be much of a difference. We also do not know how much data players may have to install if they play the physical copy instead of the digital version.

  • Project Cars Will Receive Monthly Free Content

    project cars free monthly carsIt's always great to see developers pushing out free content on top of the paid-for DLC that seems to come with every AAA game these days. Fortunately, Project Cars developer Slightly Mad is planning to release some free content each month to say thanks to any loyal long term players.

    Even though Project Cars been delayed numerous times, the game is finally nearing release, and once it does launch, players will be able to pick up some free cars each month. There will also be some free content available at the launch of Project Cars as compensation for the extended delays.

    The first free car will be released in May and it will be the Lykan Hypersport, a vehicle that has actually been featured in Furious 7. Details for other free cars have not yet been revealed, but we'll probably hear more from Slightly Mad once Project Cars has released.

    Below, the statement from Slightly Mad regarding the free content can be read.

    "We are immensely pleased to have this awesome machine in the game and to give fans the chance to get behind the wheel of a truly amazing vehicle.
    The Lykan Hypersport represents the first of a series of free cars we'll be giving away every month as a thank you to our fans for being so patient for the launch of the game.
    We'll have more info on the full schedule of further content for Project Cars soon but we hope that this is a great sneak peek of just one way in which Project Cars is going to expand in the future."

  • Bungie Details their Plans for New Destiny Update

    destiny updateBungie have revealed details to release a new patch that will add new content and create a stepping stone between now and the House of Wolves DLC planned for later this year. All details for the update have not yet been given, but Bungie have revealed a number of features we can expect to see when the update is released.

    The new update details, as seen on Bungie's blog, can be seen below. We can expect to see these changes in the new update.

    Vault Space - We know you need more space to collect all the treasures you gain from your missions, and more gear is on the way.
    Raid Fixes - There are times when Atheon and Crota can be uncooperative, so we're tackling their worst bugs.
    Audio and Visual - Not everyone wants to see or hear a game the same way, which is why we’re looking at providing more options.
    PVP Ammunition - The Crucible team wants to change the way ammo crates dictate the flow of a battle.
    Strikes - The numbers tell us that there are some missions that are successfully completed far less than others, inspiring us to look at why people quit.

    Community manager David Dague also talked about how Bungie go about working on Destiny and improving the experience for the playerbase. "Ever since Destiny went live, there have been various teams at Bungie," Dague mentioned.

    "We're all working on Destiny, but different teams have goals for different projects.

    "We've specialized to meet the needs of this sprawling community. Each class of developer has a specific focus. Some of them are creating new adventures for your Guardian - those both revealed and still secret."

    The exact release for the new update has not yet been planned, but we'll probably hear more about it in the near future.

  • 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.
