Hacknet Labyrinths expansion jacking in next week

The Labyrinths expansion for command line hacking sim Hacknet will finally launch next Friday, a few months later than initially planned. RPS resident l33t d00d Brendan has declared Hacknet to be the second-best computerating game so more of that sounds grand. Labyrinths will add a big new chunk of campaign, with such fun as collaborating with other l33t (NPC) hackers through IRC and using new tools to hack the planet. Have a peek in this trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Europa Universalis 4: Mandate of Heaven ascending April

You must choose: history or sci-fi? No time to explain. Pick now. No do-overs. 3. 2. 1. Time’s up! Huh, that’s your decision? Interesting. You’ll have to stick with that. Okay, now there’s time to explain: Paradox have announced a release date of April 6th for the next Europa Universalis 4 [official site] expansion, Mandate of Heaven, which is also the release date for Stellaris’s Utopia expansion. What are you going to do, play them at separate times? Tch! So if you chose history, you can look forward to an expansion focused on China and Japan. Read the rest of this entry »

That’s Sabotage! First CoD: Infinite Warfare DLC hits PC

I can’t stand it, I know they planned it: the first DLC for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] has arrived on PC, one month after its PlayStation debut. Activision are scheming on an exclusivity deal – that’s sabotage. As is the first DLC. ‘Sabotage’ is its name and new maps is it game. It’s the standard CoD DLC deal: four regular multiplayer maps and one new map for the co-op Zombies mode. And as ever, Zombies is where CoD devs get to lark about, this time visiting a zombified rave in a redwood forest in the ’90s, with guest star Kevin Smith. Really. Look: Read the rest of this entry »

Battlefield 1 details DLC, holding trial this weekend

With the first Battlefield 1 [official site] DLC due to arrive some time this March, adding the mystifyingly-excluded French army, EA have started gabbing more about the other expansion packs. Hussars and destroyers and nightmarish horrors, oh my!

EA have also announced that a free trial is coming this weekend, letting folks play for ten hours with bits of multiplayer and singleplayer. Read the rest of this entry »

CKII’s Monks & Mystics (& Satanists) arrive in March

It’s that time again – Crusader Kings II [official site] is already obese with DLC and expansions but that is not stopping Paradox from bringing yet more obscure possibilities to the historical son-murdering simulation. The next addition, Monks & Mystics, is going to let you join religious sects and shadowy groups of clandestine devil worshippers among others. It’s release date has today been confirmed as March 7. And there’s a dev video below explaining some of the features.

Resident Evil 7 serves Banned Footage DLCs on PC today

Two ghostloads of new scares arrive in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] today with the launch of the ‘Banned Footage’ DLC packs. Each adds a mish-mash of new story bits and modes, from escaping a room while in the watchful care of a cannibal to betting your fingers in a Saw-like game of Blackjack. Awful. These DLC packs have been out on PlayStation 4 for a bit because of exclusivity shenanigans but hey, this means I got to live a bit longer without seeing that awful Blackjack. Warning: it is awful. However, the monster wearing a jaunty hat is great. Swings and roundabouts. Read the rest of this entry »

Motorsport Manager revving up Gran Turismo DLC

I love Motorsport Manager [official site] even though I don’t know an exhaust flange from a dipstick. It’s easy to learn, doesn’t demand I bring a load of technical knowledge to the pits and it’s about human characters as much as cars and cash. News that DLC adding a GT series, with two divisions, is coming next Wednesday is exciting then, not because I know what a GT car is, but because more Motorsport Manager is welcome whatever shape it takes. There’ll also be a free update that allows you to make your own team rather than taking over a pre-built one. VROOM.
