Total War: Warhammer 2 adds more rats and lizards today, free and paid

Today's The Prophet And The Warlock DLC for Total War: Warhammer 2 may be relatively small, adding just two new Legendary Lords, but the 'Doomsayer' update accompanying it is massive. Creative Assembly have overhauled campaign AI, added new AI factions, new regions and a new system of underground expansion for those sneaky Skaven. There's even a chunk of free DLC, adding a new Lizardman Legendary…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis takes us beyond Greece next week

The first chunk of DLC for Assassin's Creed Odyssey had some decent enough missions, but didn't really justify Ubisoft's entire season pass. The second half - The Fate Of Atlantis - looks like it's going to be a far more interesting adventure. Launching next week, April 23rd, it reminds me a lot of the underworld-delving second expansion for AC: Origins. It seems there's a bit…

Get your kicks on Route 66 in Trials Rising’s first expansion

If you ever plan to motor west, don't just take the highway - do a triple flip over the highway while on fire, that's the best. Trials Rising hit Route 66 in its first expansion, released today, with two dozen new tracks across the iconic running from Chicago to Los Angeles. Pass through--and over--big cities, one-stoplight towns, ghost towns, the Grand Canyon, Santa Monica Pier,…

Ian Hitman will be get a summer job robbing a bank, in autumn stop by a prison for a spot of sniping, then put his feet up with a visit to a holiday resort, developers IO Interactive revealed today. They've laid out their rough plans for the next few seasons of Hitman 2, see, both those paid expansions and the freebies coming for everyone. A…

Surviving Mars turns the red planet green in terraforming expansion

Green is the new red and you, dear Surviving Mars player, have committed the fashion faux-pas of colonising a planet in last season's colour. Oh dear oh dear. Thankfully, the second expansion for Haemimont's colony-building strategy game will allow you to change that passé rust red for verdant greens and pops of blues by terraforming the planet. As a bonus, terraforming should make the planet…

Final Fantasy XV concludes prematurely with its first and last story DLC

After thirteen years of development, the saga of Final Fantasy XV today draws to an abrupt close with the launch of its final story DLC, Episode Ardyrn. Square Enix had planned to release another three episodes after this, each focusing on a different character, but they cut that plan short and here we are at the end, my only friend, the end. Episode Ardyn focuses…

Dead Cells documentary features a peek at the Rise Of The Giant DLC

We've known there's free DLC on the way for rogue-ish metroidvania Dead Cells for a while - daring players have been playing a pre-release build for days. This somewhat dulls Red Bull Gaming's boast that their little Dead Cells documentary contains "exclusive footage" from the DLC, but it's still worth a watch because developers Motion Twin seem like lovely people. There's some talk about their challenges making…

Offworld Trading Company makes multiplayer free next week

Economic space strategy game Offworld Trading Company will be far easier to play with friends soon - as of February 28th, the game's multiplayer will be available as a free, standalone game. Mohawk Games's extraterrestrial number-cruncher is still expanding, with more DLC due along with the multiplayer client, but the chance to play for free against other humans strikes me as the bigger deal here.…

Julia and The Walking Dead’s Negan hit Tekken 7 next week

Tekken 7 gets just that little bit weirder on February 28th, as live-streaming pugilist Julia Chang gets extremely online in the ring. Baseball-bat swinging warlord Negan from The Walking Dead makes the leap along with her. Together, they wrap up the second season of the Bandai Namco arcade fighter's DLC. In any other fighter these two would probably seem like oddballs, but Tekken 7's cast…

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn wraps up the story on March 26th

The game's director leaving to start his own studio may have sunk most DLC plans for Final Fantasy XV, but there's still one last story to be told. Due on March 26th, Episode Ardyn will put players in the shoes of the game's dapper arch-villain and lead him on a high powered rampage through the streets of the capital city. Still, Ardyn isn't Kefka, who…

Resident Evil 2 in Noir mode is twice as scary, ten times as stylish

Stop whatever you're doing and go and buy some entirely superficial DLC for the latest release in a mainstream videogame franchise right now. Today is the day Rock, Paper, Shotgun betrays everything it once stood for (for about three hours one day in July 2008, probably). Because today is the day I played the excellent Resident Evil 2 remake in the nothing-less-than-glorious Noir mode.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius unleashes Tyranids in new DLC

Warhammer's Tyranids would be difficult to placate in a traditional 4X strategy game. They'd always be offering you bum deals for your biomass, sending heretical missionaries to spread the good word about biomass, claiming they saw your biomass first so it's rightfully theirs, rivalling your tourism industry with such attractions as Biomass World and Eurobiomass, delivering notes sneering at your meagre biomass, and tainting your…

In the grim darkness of 2019, you can add green footprints to Warhammer 40K games for £1.50

While flailing helplessly through the ocean of Steam new releases today, I grabbed for a familiar shoreline to catch my breath. It was DLC for so-so Games Workshoppy action-RPG Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, which I had temporarily mistaken for the rather good turn-based strategy thinger Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus. Before I steeled myself for another dive into those infinite waters, I clicked through, mildly curious…

Forza Horizon 4 now tootling around Fortune Island

While I was being dragged down to the depths of England last week (business reasons), Forza Horizon 4 was pushing higher into Scotland with the launch of its first expansion, Fortune Island. The fictional new hunk of rock has sprouted off Scotland, seemingly drawing inspiration for roads and landmarks from a number of places around the highlands and islands, including Skye. It's a wild and…

The Banner Saga 3 fights forever in Eternal Arena DLC

Stoic finished telling their Viking-y fantasy tale earlier this year with The Banner Saga 3, and now only violence remains. Yesterday they launched the turn-based tactical RPG's Eternal Arena DLC, letting players fight on and on in customisable sandbox battles. All the game's heroes, villains, and maps are yours to toy with, and it has a weekly challenge with leaderboards too. Eternal Arena is probably…

Viscera Cleanup Detail goes a bit Austin Powers in new DLC

The very finest game about cleaning, Viscera Cleanup Detail, is now tidying up a spy spoof villain's secret island base in new DLC. Yes, this dastardly lair absolutely does have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads. And I think we might be able to blow up the moon with a giant ray gun? All in a day's work for our crack team…

Vermintide 2 returning to Ubersreik in next DLC

The next DLC for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will call back to the first game, revisiting and reworking three of the cooperative FPS's most popular levels. Back To Ubersreik is its name, and making three old levels "Bigger, better, and crazier!" is its game, according to developers Fatshark. They've only confirmed one level so far, the game-opening Horn Of Magnus where our four ratsmashers have to…

American Truck Simulator adds spectacle with Special Transport DLC

As a tourist behind the wheel of American Truck Simulator, I'm interested in anything making the world feel more alive, and the latest DLC seems great for that. Out now, the 'Special Transport' DLC whacks in honking great oversized loads from to industrial machinery to houses, so large that we need to follow police escorts and the TV news might send a camera to watch…

Total Warhammer 2 now sailing the Vampire Coast

Consider your timbers shivered, quivered, spooked, and skeeved, as Total War: Warhammer II has set sail for the Vampire Coast. Crews of undead pirates fielding drowned zombies, giant crabs, seabeasts, shipwreck golems, and other such nautical horrors are the focus of the new expansion released today, Curse Of The Vampire Coast. Accompanying the paid expansion is a free update, revitalising the Vampire Counts faction, kinda…

Final Fantasy XV cancels most DLC, director quits Square Enix

The saga of Final Fantasy XV will cut off abruptly, as Square Enix last night announced they've cancelled three of its four upcoming story DLCs. FFXV director Hajime Tabata has left the company too, planning to start his own company for his own project. So... that's about the end of that. The DLC story episode starring antagonist Ardyn is still coming, as are more of…
