Battlefield Hardline Getaway DLC Legging It This Month

“Do people even still play Hardline?” I wondered, having seen EA announce a release date for the third lump of Battlefield: Hardline [official site] DLC. “I thought everyone stuck with to Battlefield 4.” So I checked and yep, they mostly have: Hardline’s PC playercount is less than 10% of the older BF4’s. But hey, if you’re one of those 2,000-odd folks playing murdercops and robbers right now, you might be glad to hear that ‘Getaway’ pack is coming this month with new maps and vehicles and weapons and things.

Binding Of Isaac Mod Tools Coming In Afterbirth † DLC

Ace roguelikelike cry ‘em up The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site] expanded only last month with Afterbirth (it’s fab!), but word’s already arrived of another add-on in the works.

Dying Light DLC Season Pass’s Price Is… Going Up $10?

I don’t know anything about business but I know that if you’re not disrupting, you’re bankrupting. This isn’t 2014, grandma. Here in 2015, we’ve disrupted the economic paradigm with an innovative shareconomy. Just the other day, I used the app Walk A Mile to rent my shoes to someone who wanted a smarter pair for a business lunch.

So yeah, you might be used to DLC and DLC season passes becoming cheaper over time, but pssh! We can disrupt that. Get this: the Dying Light [official site] DLC season pass’s price is about to go up from $20 to $30.

Rocket League’s Going A Bit Post-Apocalyptic

Rocket League [official site] is, of course, set in the brightest of utopias, when we have all transcended flesh to gambol and frolic as sentient cars. But what if it were a bad future, what if everything were all rusty and had sand and all that bad future stuff?

It’ll arrive this December alongside a free update adding a new footie arena for everyone, the dusty Wasteland – the game’s first ‘non-standard’ pitch. Have a look:
