Going Underground: The Division’s First Expansion Out

The surface of New York City is iconic, sure, but its underside is something even better: mythic. That’s where blind albino alligators grow massive in the dark, where leaking steam pipes vent through manholes, where the Mole People live, where rats larger than dogs flood tunnels in devouring hordes, where trains stop at secret doors, and there are more ghosts than you can shake a P.K.E. Meter at. So I’m delighted to see Ubisoft’s first paid expansion for The Division [official site] is out now to explore down there. I’m sure it will have all of those verifiable true things.

Europa Universalis IV Gives Away Free Swedish Songs

What if Paradox Interactive are a shadowy front for the Swedish tourist board? What if they’re being nice – with all these lovely games and free DLC – to lure us to lonely lakes and forests? What then? We all know what the UK government did with The Beatles. Now, I’m not saying this is true, but the latest free bit of DLC supports my theory completely. A collection of 18th-century Swedish songs from poet and composer Carl Michael Bellman is now resonating around Europa Universalis IV [official site] in free DLC, ostensibly to selling Paradox selling many games but… if you download this and start pining for pine, don’t come crying to me for help.

Fallout 4’s Contraptions Workshop DLC Released

The fourth load of Fallout 4 [official site] DLC is here and it’s another small one. Following the big new hunks of story and land in Far Harbour, they’ve gone back to small mod-like stuff with the Contraptions Workshop add-on. Released last night, it adds new mechanised doodads for settlements like conveyer belts, logic gates, and so on for your architectural amusement. But if you want more quests and whatnot, the next big DLC for you will be Nuka-World in August.

Supplémentaire: France Heading To Battlefield 1 As DLC

Battlefield 1 [official site] may have wowed us mid-week with its 64-player Conquest mode, but its multiplayer is still missing two key WWI players: France and Russia. As it stands, the game’s multiplayer includes the British, Germans, Austro-Hungarians, Italians, Ottomans, and Americans, however, given that France were part of the First World War from the outset, it seems a bit odd for them to miss out.

DLC? DICE’s Julien Wera appears to have confirmed so in an interview.

Payday 2 Biker DLC Introducing Playable Ron Perlman

As part of their recent promise to support Payday 2 [official site] for at least the next 18 months, Overkill Software have now revealed what its latest batch of DLC, due out on Thursday, is all about. It’s two separate expansions – The Biker Heist and The Biker Character Pack – taking the total number of paid-for and free add-ons for the first-person robbery fest to an impressive 60. Between the two, expect new weapons, masks, a new character, and a new heist.

To mark the occasion, Overkill released a typically Payday live-action trailer alongside the reveal. It’s got a shotgun-wielding Ron Perlman in it and it’s all a bit Sons of Anarchy. See:

Star Wars Battlefront Visiting Cloud City This Month

I adore traps in multiplayer levels. Give me an opportunity to dunk foes into lava, lure them onto landmines, squish them in machinery, or otherwise get ridiculous environmental kills and I’ll be there, lurking by the button. Very few people ever fall for traps, of course, but those rare kills are always worth the wait. So if the next Star Wars Battlefront [official site] doesn’t let players freeze their foes in carbonite for a tacky wall-hanging, I’ll be mighty disappointed.

Battlefront is blasting off to Bespin and its fabulous Cloud City in the next DLC add-on, which EA have announced will debut later this month for Season Pass buyers.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Celebrates Euro 2016 With Flags

Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site] now has “National Window Flags” DLC, allowing you to stick your preferred country’s flag onto the side of your cab. It’s a small cosmetic paid-for bit of DLC but its release coincides with the ramping up of Euro 2016 interest and prompted some interesting reading about how national sides work in international football.
