Dying Light DLC Season Pass’s Price Is… Going Up $10?

I don’t know anything about business but I know that if you’re not disrupting, you’re bankrupting. This isn’t 2014, grandma. Here in 2015, we’ve disrupted the economic paradigm with an innovative shareconomy. Just the other day, I used the app Walk A Mile to rent my shoes to someone who wanted a smarter pair for a business lunch.

So yeah, you might be used to DLC and DLC season passes becoming cheaper over time, but pssh! We can disrupt that. Get this: the Dying Light [official site] DLC season pass’s price is about to go up from $20 to $30. Its makers say the upcoming expansion included with it, The Following, has grown big enough to warrant a higher price.

Rocket League’s Going A Bit Post-Apocalyptic

Rocket League [official site] is, of course, set in the brightest of utopias, when we have all transcended flesh to gambol and frolic as sentient cars. But what if it were a bad future, what if everything were all rusty and had sand and all that bad future stuff? You’ll see soon, as developers Psyonix today announced Chaos Run, a new DLC pack with grim, grimy new cards, decals, wheels, and other customisation bits. It’ll arrive this December alongside a free update adding a new footie arena for everyone, the dusty Wasteland – the game’s first ‘non-standard’ pitch. Have a look:

Bloody Hell: Dawn Of War II – Retribution’s Surprise DLC

There might be no sign of any Dawn of War III – come on come on come on come on – but new-ish Relic owners Sega seem determined not to let the beloved Warhammer 40,000 strategy series lie entirely fallow. Last month they put out a new map for the first Dawn of War and today, four years after its original release, Dawn of War II – Retribution [official site] just received new, paid DLC. It’s loosely Hallowe’en themed, but it’s Only War enough in its own right to be good all year round.

Metal Gear Solid V’s Costume DLC Is Out, Bugged, Tacky

Big Boss ordering a soldier into battle dressed as a sexy version of his ambiguous mentor/mother/lover figure who he himself killed is an unusual move even for a chap who abducts people with balloons, but this is Metal Gear. The curious MGS3-inspired DLC costumes for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] have arrived. They’re outfits for male and female soldiers, Snake included, and showy getups for your horse, priced at £0.79 each or £3.99 for all seven. However, it seems some are bugged and don’t work properly.

Steppe Up: Europa Universalis IV – The Cossacks

It's not Telltale's The Cossacks, honest

The next expansion for Europa Universalis IV [official site] goes by the name The Cossacks and it’ll be with us before the end of the year. As the name suggests, there’s a spotlight on the independent soldiers of the steppes but the new features mostly seem to improve your options for peacetime management. The key addition is the “Estate system”, which allows you to assign control of provinces to local factions. You’ll lose out on some income but gain benefits related to the faction in charge. More details below as well as a trailer.

Back To The Footie: Rocket League’s DeLorean DLC


For a few years now, internauts have enjoyed editing stills from Back to the Future Part II to pretend today’s the date young Marty McFly travels forward to – the time when we should all ride hoverboards and feed our cars garbage. Well, that date is really for really reals almost here – October 21st, 2015 – and it’s being marked in a fine way by Rocket League [official site].

Cry “Great Scott!” and (in excited confusion) “Wubba lubba dub-dub!” as Psyonix are only flipping putting Doc Brown’s DeLorean time machine into their footie-with-cars game. It will not travel through time. It will cost you $2.

Cosmic Encounter Officially Invades Tabletop Simulator

Cosmic Encounter is a fantastic board game, a wheeling, dealing, warring strategy game about vying for control of the cosmos as one of many aliens factions who each throw a different wrench in its simple rules. It’s Rab’s favourite board game and, as a sign of things to come, Quinns wrote about it too. “But Alice,” you say, “you clearly can’t be civil for the duration of a board game, so what are you doing writing about it now?”

It’s simple: Cosmic Encounter has become the second cardboard game officially released as DLC for virtuaboard ‘em up Tabletop Simulator [official site].

Pimp My Ride: Euro Truck Simulator’s Cabin Accessories

I’m always fascinated how people customise things, from pencil cases to player characters – and trucks, of course. Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site] lets folks fancy up their rigs with fancy paint jobs, but now with new DLC opens a wonderful new space to blow cash on trinkets to make you happy, adding cabin accessories.

Nodding dogs, pennants, hula dancers, laptops, handbags, ice boxes, and fluffy dice are among the treasures truckers can now fill their cabins with, and yeah, I am keen to see the scenes people create. Have a look at all this junk:

Oh man, I’d be so good at Rocket League [official site] by now, if only MGSV hadn’t been released and stolen all my time just after I started playing it in earnest. I can sprint-punch a donkey and fire it into the air in a heartbeat, but no way I could car-kick a ball into a goal on random servers now, I suspect. Graham, can I take a week off to practice? I need to so I can write about the excellently-named upcoming second DLC, Revenge of the Battle-Cars. Yes? Great, see you in a week.

Solid Steed: MGSV Does Horse Armour DLC, Plus Tux

Not a horse-tux, sadly. Nor is the cheesy avatar of an open source operating system becoming a playable MGS character. Big Boss gets the tux, D-horse gets armour, and playable women soldiers get [sigh]. This, then, is the first DLC for the mostly excellent Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site].
