XCOM 2 Anarchy’s Children DLC Out Today

Happy Saint Paddy’s Day one and all! A day for dressing up in garish green hats, novelty glasses, and orange wigs. Which is what I assume we’ll be able to do in the latest XCOM 2 [official site] expansion, Anarchy’s Children, which promises “100 new exotic customization options for your soldiers, including new hair styles, face paints, armor, lower face props, decals, helmets, masks and more.” I guess we’ll find out either way when it launches later today. Top o’ the mornin’ to ya, Advent soldiers.

First XCOM 2 DLC Inbound, But No Perfomance Fix Yet

Suicide Squad, innit?

Well, in fairness, they’ve still got a week to squeak out a much-needed fix for the otherwise great XCOM 2 [official site]’s assorted technical issues before the Anarchy’s Children DLC arrives next week. They might yet do right by us. Leaves a bit of a bad taste in the mouth to even be talking about flogging extra content before the base game’s fully ship-shape, though – especially as said extra content makes me twist my lips into a sort of bemused pout. I really dig XCOM 2’s current and generous character customisation options, which manage to be playful without capsizing into arbitrary weirdness. I’m not sure the same can be said about the Anarchy’s Children pack of cosmetic add-ons.

Na Na Nah, Really: Rocket League Batmobile DLC Out

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice looks proper gash, doesn’t it? Ooh it’s so grim and gritty and boring, boring, boring. Yeah, go growl in the rain some more, you big babies. Still, those lot may be busy posing, but it seems the Batmobile’s AI still has time for fun. Today it screeched onto the pitch in Rocket League [official site], joining all the other sentient cars playing fo- oh my god they’re going to make a Knight Rider at some point, aren’t they?

The Division’s First Year Of Updates And DLC Detailed

It’s gone five o’clock, which must mean… ah yes, here we are, Ubisoft have sent me something new about The Division [official site]. Following pre-load and unlock times, trailers galore, and a vision of my city filling up with dead improv troupes, here we have more word on the shooter-RPG’s first year of post-release content plans.

Yes, obviously this is Ubi gabbing about a load of paid DLC before the game’s even out, but they are also talking about new things they plan to add in free updates.

Just Cause 3 Patch Cutting Load Times Ahead Of DLC

Just Cause 3 [official site] will be ready to blast off with a cracking-looking rocketpack in the Sky Fortress DLC on March 8th, Square Enix announced today, though only folks who pay for all the DLC up-front in the Season Pass will get to play then. Folks who’d buy it separately will need to wait until the 15th.

On the bright side, a free update is coming for all and sundry tomorrow, bringing performance improvements, faster load times, and more fine things.

Metal Gear Online’s Cloaked In Silence DLC This Month

Expert sniper Quiet is joining Metal Gear Online [official site] as a playable special character in the upcoming ‘Cloaked in Silence’ DLC, and I’m sorely disappointed in everyone who won’t get into character by humming over voice comms whenever they see an enemy. The add-on will also chuck in three new maps and give unlimited access to a new mode which will only allow non-DLCers a few plays each week. Me, I’m mostly in it to bug teamies by humming away with a crinkling binbag tied round my left arm.
