Cod Blops 4 reducing timed exclusivity for post-launch content, but not removing it

Activision have announced that they'll stop being absolute gits brandishing birds akimbo at Call Of Duty's PC players, and settle for merely flicking a single V at us while blowing raspberries. After years of DLC being exclusive to one console or another for thirty days (hitting PC and the other after that absurd delay), they now say that post-launch content for Call Of Duty: Black…

OMSI 2 rides the Wuppertal Suspension Railway in new expansion

The latest expansion for OMSI 2 offers the rare opportunity to ride the Wuppertaler Schwebebahn, a suspended monorail hanging over the river and streets of the German city Wuppertal. This bus-driving simulator is a bit too serious for my tastes, as I'm more of a happy-go-bumpy Bus Simulator 18 goof, but I would very much like to visit Wuppertal. I'm sure I could become a…

Europa Universalis IV packs its trunk for Dharma expansion

Historical conquer 'em up Europa Universalis IV got its newest expansion yesterday, Dharma, which adds elephants, monsoons, trade company shenanigans, and an overhaul to the Indian nations. Basically, it lets European nations engage in their traditional love of colonial economic browbeating, but also gives smaller individual Indian states more attention, with new missions and national ideas of their own. You should come and read more.…

Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies shambles out alongside a New Game+ mode

Zombies, like ants, get everywhere. Unlike ants, they're the subject of Far Cry 5: Dead Living Zombies, the shooter's third and final DLC. It came out two days ago but I bet YOU didn't know that, and I bet the promise of seven self-contained action movie scenes from various apocalyptic scenarios sounds alluring. Maybe. I might not bet much. Ubisoft have also chucked in a…

A Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia adds new Allegiance system, launches gore DLC

Today brings a big new free update for A Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia, adding new Allegiance and Decree systems (well, new to Battlebrits but borrowed from earlier Total War games).

Battlefield 1 & 4 get another wave of free DLC giveaways

EA are retiring season passes for the Battlefield series starting with Battlefield V, and it seems that they're gradually making that change retroactive, at least in part.

If you want any Cod Blops 4 DLC maps, you’ll need to buy the whole season pass

While many big multiplayer games are stepping away from paid DLC in favour of other ways to fund new content updates, Activision are doubling down on playerbase-splitting map packs. The publishers have revealed that Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's dozen post-launch maps will only be sold in the £30 season pass, not sold in separate packs too as in previous years (and certainly not…

Battlefield 1 & 4 serve up free Russian winter DLC today

Battlefield V is practically upon us already, but its two immediate predecessors are still very well populated games. Still, thanks to their old focus on season passes, many players just stuck with the base games, a problem which EA have been rectifying lately with giveaways. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 can snag the In The Name Of The Tsar expansion for the game, while Battlefield…

Secret patch updates Prey with REM lyrics as achievements

I love to start the weekend off right. And by that, I mean seeing some fun video game news that makes me shout at my screen uncontrollably. Look, there's no bigger fan of Prey than your boy Brock here. Heck, I'm a fan of all Preys. But now, it seems Michael Stipe is giving me a run for my money. While we already know that…

Change hurts so good in Tales of Maj’Eyal’s coming DLC

Change has certainly been a good thing for the long-running roguelike now known as Tales of Maj'Eyal (aka TOME). Once a mere Middle-earth tribute, it has warped and twisted itself until nearly unrecognisable. The next paid expansion for the game is taking that to new extremes. In the Forbidden Cults expansion - due on May 16th - you'll get to mutate your body, grow tentacles from god-knows-where,…

Infra getting DLC & tenement management spin-off

First-person explore-o-puzzler Infra has been one of my favourite gaming surprises of recent years, sending me tromping around the dams, sewers, and bridges of a European city as a structural analyst investigating infrastructure damage.
