Total Warhammer’s Wood Elves expansion now blooming

I’m sure wood elves are lovely folks but I know if I ever see one, there’s no way I’m not ending up mulched around a sapling. If that sounds a lark to you, hey, the Wood Elves have arrived in Total Warhammer [official site] with today’s launch of its latest expansion. ‘Realm of the Wood Elves’ adds the murderous hippy army with their own units, their own story campaign, and a few twists that make them different to play. Read what we made of them when we played a preview version. Read the rest of this entry »

Skyrim, Fallout, and Doom tables flip into Pinball FX2

I’ve been playing a fair bit of actual physical pinball lately, having discovered a half-dozen machines across nearby pubs. My favourites put their themes into motion, like the NBA table where I get to launch the ball at a hoop (aided by mystical magnetism). The selection isn’t ideal, mind; I’m not much into basketball and Monopoly is so undesirable. No, digital pinball is a far better way to #engage with your favourite modern #brands in #brandball. Look, here come three new Bethesda-y DLC tables for Pinball FX2 [official site], plinging balls into Skyrim, Fallout, and Doom. Come see! Read the rest of this entry »

Euro Truck Simulator 2 loads up Vive la France! DLC

Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site] has become bigger, more complex, and far more French with the launch of its ‘Vive la France!’ paid expansion today. It redoes the western-ish side of L’Hexagone, diagonally between Le Havre and Nice (sans Paris), with miles of new roads and a makeover to just be, y’know, more French. Its villages remind me a lot of the rural France I remember from holidays so I’m content. Read the rest of this entry »

Get your Nurgle on in Blood Bowl 2 now

Whether you’re a fan of American Football or not, the idea of Warhammer’s various factions solving their problems on the gridiron is hilarious. Games Workshop’s Blood Bowl 2 [official site] lets you do just that, and they’ve added another team for the side of Chaos, the Nurgle team, in new DLC. Read the rest of this entry »

There goes the neighbourhood! Cities Skylines welcomes Natural Disasters next week

Some say a comet will fall from the sky, followed by meteor showers and tidal waves. Yeah, but they only heard that in a song, so what do they know?

If you, like me, kneel at your bedside to whisper the prayer “Lord Godzilla, rise from your slumber and scour humanity from the Earth with your purifying nuclear fire”, you may be comforted by apocalyptic visions in the upcoming Cities: Skylines [official site] expansion. Natural Disasters won’t bring rampaging monsters to the spunky build ’em up (as far as I know) but it will rain meteors, wash sins away with tsunami, and all that good stuff. The wait is almost over, as publishers Paradox have announced Natural Disasters will launch on November 29th. They’ve shown it off in a new trailer too. Read the rest of this entry »

The Division’s Survival expansion is coming tomorrow

The Division [official site], the Clancy manshoot with MMO delusions, is getting its penultimate expansion tomorrow, along with a patch to the base game. The Survival DLC will add a new game mode in which 24 players are thrown into the full map of New York in the middle of a blizzard, where they’ll have to find warm clothing, food, water and medicine while searching for a cure to the virus that has ravaged the big apple. Oh, and there’s some big fellas chasing you too. It’s been in public beta for the past couple of weeks but now it’s hitting the big time. Ubisoft say a game of Survival can take up to two hours. Stressful.

Star Wars Battlefront’s Rogue One DLC on December 6th

'Last one over the top buys the first round of Shtööhbs!'

With Star Wars Rogue One now mere weeks away from cinemas, Electronic Arts are gabbing more about how new Star Wars Battlefront [official site] DLC will cross over with the movie. The DLC, Rogue One: Scarif, will debut on December 6th with levels including a recreation of that tropical beach battle seen in the film’s trailer. It’ll also add new playable heroes in Jyn Erso, the film’s hero, and Orson Krennic, the Imperial fella in the white suit (a bold fashion statement, always) who she’ll butt heads with.

Before then, hey, all players can play the other expansions’ new maps and modes for free this weekend. Read the rest of this entry »
