For Honor getting Siege-y with free post-launch content

After a decade of paid DLC dividing multiplayer communities and menacing wallets, the state of affairs is still sorry enough that I mutter “Oh thank god, they’ve not totally muffed it” when I see a big publisher, y’know, not totally muff it. Ubisoft today detailed DLC plans for their upcoming stabfest For Honor [official site] and — huzzah! — they’ve not totally muffed it. Similar to Ubi’s Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor will add new characters, maps, modes, and gear free for all players post-launch, but folks who buy a season pass will get new characters a week early.

Resident Evil 7 shows off DLC scares

While Resident Evil 7 [official site] DLC has started creeping onto PlayStations, sadly we need to wait for a few weeks because of some lousy exclusivity deal (‘sadly’ because RE7 is great, yeah?). But as we’ve not mentioned the DLC before and it’s out in the wild, rustling through the trees and rattling doorknobs, now seems a good time to have a gander at what’s coming. So! Two paid DLC packs will add a mish-mash of new modes and ministories, followed by a paid new story episode, then finally a new little storyline will arrive free in the spring.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Criminal Past story DLC announced

Adam Jensen is off to the cyberslammer next month in the second story DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site]. Square Enix yesterday announced the ‘Criminal Past’ DLC, a prequel mission which will send Adman undercover into a prison for robomen. That’s why they call it Criminal Past, see: it’s set in the past (of the future), and there are criminals. The marketing droids must feel chuffed with that wordplay but tch, they missed such great names as The Gig House, Rigbrig, Spring Spring, and The Clank. Read the rest of this entry »

The Sims 4 getting vampiric mini-expansion this month

Bela Lugosi may be dead but soon you’ll be able to revive him and stalk around undead undead undead in The Sims 4 [official site]. The next DLC ‘Game Pack’ for EA’s live ’em up will introduces vampires who, sure, will have supernatural powers, drink blood, and own ha-ha-hilarious spookhouses but ultimately live the same as everyone else.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s pre-order mission now free

The pre-order virtuaguff of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site], which includes an extra story mission, is now free for all players. A patch on Friday whopped it in. The ‘Desperate Measures’ mission isn’t big but it does poke into that train station bombing which drives a fair chunk of the game so, er, good that it’s finally available to everyone. This blob of freebies also includes some new skins to dress up Adam Jensen, though don’t get your hopes up for more than different coats and body armour – no casual slacks and polo necks for this mopey cyberman.

Pay quiddos for my little friend: Payday 2’s Scarface DLC

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in,” Tony Dakota muttered in Scarface, his face dusted in icing sugar. And here he is, called out of retirement for two new bags of Payday 2 [official site] paid DLC. Ant has arrived in the co-op heist FPS himself as a playable character, armed with a chainsaw and His Little Friend, and a new heist busts into the film’s fancy mansion to bop the boss. This may sound weird but Payday 2 has already crossed over with John Wick and the Point Break remake. Read the rest of this entry »
