The Division’s Expansions Delayed To Improve The Game

Ubisoft have delayed the next two paid DLC expansions for The Division [official site] because they feel the base game needs work first. Good! That’s the way it should be done. Ubi explain, “it has become clear with your feedback and our own observations that our priority should now be on improving the core gameplay experience.” Good-o! So the next two expansions are delayed, and Update 1.4 will launch separately in October to smarten the place up.

Over The Plop: Battlefield 1 DLC Season Pass Detailed

Battlefield 1 [official site] is launching an open beta test next week but nah, you don’t want to hear about that. The full game’s out in two months but nope, you don’t want to know more about that either. I know you. The question on your lips is: “Can I buy DLC?”

Electronic Arts today announced the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, saying that “for only $50” – only $50 extra! only! the cheek! – players can get four expansions, including new maps, new weapons, new vehicles, and French and Russian armies.

We’ve known that two big story add-ons were coming to Dark Souls III [official site] and now the first is officially announced.

Total Warhammer: Grim & The Grave DLC Announced

If there’s any sort of game you should expect DLC from, it’s Games Workshop. It wouldn’t feel right – wouldn’t feel authentic – if you didn’t, every few weeks, find yourself muttering “Oh for! Yes I do want that fancy unit but I just bought… for crying out loud, you flipping rotters. Fine. Fine, I’ll buy your ruddy ghost-drawn boneshrine!”

Want to field a Mortis Engine in Total War: Warhammer [official site]? You’ll need to buy the next add-on, The Grim & The Grave, which boosts both the Empire and Vampire Counts, see. But, in a very un-Games Workshop way, more freebies are coming too.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Unlock Times, DLC Season Pass Details

Gosh oh golly, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is out in less than 24 hours! Square Enix have confirmed Steam unlock times and I’m mighty excited. The cyberpunk FPS-RPG is pretty great, our Graham thinks – the lucky dog!

Nothing cools that launch giddiness like DLC announcements!

The Burpiest Place On Earth: Fallout 4 Visits Nuka World On The 30th

Level design has a lot in common with theme park design. They use similar tricks to guide and lure visitors, tell stories with the world, reward visitors, conceal flaws and boundaries, reveal surprises… heck, go watch Scott Rogers’ GDC talk Everything I Learned About Level Design I Learned from Disneyland. But what has Fallout 4 [official site] learned from Disneyland about building an actual theme park? We’ll see on August 30th, as Bethesda have announced that’s when the Nuka World expansion will launch with a new fizzypop Disneyland copycat. Have a look in this new trailer:

Doom Half-Price To Mark First Multiplayer DLC Launch

The first bit of Doom [official site] multiplayer DLC is out now for £12 and boy, I feel strange saying that. Look, expansions to id Software’s shooter have traditionally been a bit shaky, largely adding so-so singleplayer campaigns made by other studios, but… sheesh, £12 for three maps, a new gun, and some dress-up odds and ends? That’s fairly standard for shooters nowadays, I suppose, but it feels wrong for a game from shareware veterans. Not to mention that multiplayer is hardly Doom’s strongest side.

But hey, the base game is half-price all weekend to mark this, so that’s something.
