Dead By Daylight Gets ’80s Clobber In First Paid DLC

Am I the only one who feels mocked by Millennials? While I work hard to pay for my car and house, Millennials swan around taking selfies and buying vintage clothes. Hey, I know you’re thousands of years old, but could you at least pretend our lives are more than a blink of an eye to you? Must you disrespect all the pitiful idols we cling to? You see me and simply imagine buying my clothes from a charity shop after I die.

They’re at it even in Dead by Daylight [official site]. The 1v4 multiplayer slasher ’em up’s first paid DLC is now out, and it’s a load of ’80s-inspired clobber for its Millennials to wear. Sorry, I’ll be more specific for you ruddy eternals: the 1980s. CE. The 1980s CE.

Electric Heart: Deus Ex Story DLC System Rift Released

Surly cyberman Adam Jensen is teaming up with the pop star Sia and some wazzock to rob a data bank. That’s the premise of the first Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] story DLC, System Rift, which launched today. A little caper and a bit of banks might even put a smile on his cyberface. Here, check out the launch trailer:

Spoiler-y Dark Souls 3: Ashes Of Ariandel Gameplay Vid

Dark Souls III [official site] will be the end of Dark Souls, as far as director Hidetaka Miyazaki is concerned, but we’ve still got two DLC story add-ons to come before it wraps up. The first of these will be Ashes of Ariandel, which is due on October 25th, and… do you want to know more about it or enjoy a surprise? If you fancy going in fresh, probably don’t watch the new trailer released today. Its four minutes of gameplay show not much, really, until they show exciting spoiler-ish things that honestly I’d rather have seen fresh while playing. Be warned. For the bold, onwards:

DeLorean DLC Rumbles Into Car Mechanic Simulator

Is this a ‘meme’? Another car game has added a DeLorean DMC-12. Are you ‘memeing’ on me? It is mighty strange that two games are so interested in an obscure failed car. Am I being ‘trolled’? Even more strange is that this one comes heavily modded with sci-fi pipes and lights, just as Rocket League’s DeLorean is. Are you ‘trolls’? The newest Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 [official site] DLC lets us discover what really makes a DeLorean tick, and I don’t know what’s happening. Are you all ‘Beadling’ me?

Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star Expansion Gets An Explode-y New Trailer, Release Date

X-Wings activate! Or whatever it is X-Wings do! It’s time to blow up the Death Star… again! But this time it’s in a video game—Star Wars Battlefront‘s [official site] Death Star add-on to be exact. If there’s one thing Star Wars’ bad guys love, it’s creating a massive planet-sized weapon and watching it get blown up by their enemies. When will they ever learn?

The Death Star expansion is out next Tuesday to Season Pass holders, so EA has treated us to a gameplay trailer. It looks as though you’ll be able to take the battle into outer space, or light up some Storm Troopers in frantic gun fights within the Death Star itself, re-enacting the classic battle.

Terror From The Deep: Stellaris’ Leviathans Expansion

Paradox have announced the first meaty expansion for their sci-fi strategy epic Stellaris [official site]. It goes by the name Leviathans and they’re calling it a ‘Story Pack’, which makes me think this might be where former Failbetter scribe Alexis Kennedy has been sticking his nib. It seems like a smart place to put him if so. Kennedy was the lead writer on Sunless Sea and the trailer for Leviathans looks an awful lot like it’s channeling Terror From the Deep. Take a look.

4 Free: DICE Giving Away All Battlefield 4 DLC

All five DLC expansions for Battlefield 4 [official site] are now free. With Battlefield 1 coming out next month, DICE and Electronic Arts are letting everyone get properly tooled tooled up in the last proper Battlefield before it’s time for shiny newness. It’s nice for folks who are hankering for a bit of BF right now but hey, if BF1 proves disappointing this means you can always drop back to the full BF4 experience.

Bang Bang: Wild Wheels In American Truck Sim DLC

American Truck Simulator [official site] offers a fine bit of pootling but it’s lacked three things I’d want in My Dream American Driving Experience: a grander scale; a steering wheel whose spokes were gleaming chromed revolvers with ivory grips; and actual proper redwoods. Well! It’s getting close. Developers SCS Software have been working on upscaling ATS for a few months, and now they’ve released cosmetic DLC adding licensed recreations of flashy and absurd steering wheels made for actual trucks by Steering Creations. And heck yes it has a six shooter wheel.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided DLC Brings Back An Old Pal

Deux Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] will get its first story DLC just one month after launching. Titled “Shadow Rift”, this new story content will welcome back… well, obviously don’t read on if you don’t want to know who’s been absent.

Firewatch Adding Free Audio Tour, Free Roam Mode

You may think Firewatch [official site], the utterly spectacular first-person adventure from Campo Santo, may not be the most obvious choice for free DLC. But rather than meddling with the original game, Campo are adding a new mode called Audio Tour, a commentary mode in the form of a scavenger hunt! And later this year, the much-requested free-roaming mode will come our way. We’ve spoken to Campo Santo’s Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin about the new bits and pieces, along with new screenshots and the first look at the new trailer.

Total Warhammer’s The Grim & The Grave DLC Released

The vampires are really proud that they've managed to teach their murderparrot cusses AND the Archers theme tune.

The Grim and the Grave is not a sitcom. It is not the weekly antics of Robert Smith, Andrew Eldritch, Morrissey, Siouxsie Sioux, and the disinterred corpse of Bela Lugosi sharing a flat in Penge. There is no running gag with Smith head-over-heels for Siouxsie’s pal Patricia Morrison. You will not see the famous season-closing spit-take freeze-frame after everyone realises how weird it is Moz just served them spag bol with actual meat… and Eldritch finds a shred of Lugosi’s cape caught in his teeth.

No, The Grim and the Grave is only new DLC released today for Total Warhammer [official site]. Disappointing.

Armello DLC Not Coming To GOG Version

This fella? Not on GOG.

Canny readers swagger up with a sneer to boast they’re not falling for it: “Rock, Paper, Shotgun hasn’t really been ‘PC gaming since 1873’. That’s not true. I’ve caught you out.” They’re right, of course – ‘RPS’ is a cheeky act of positive spin. In truth, we started in 1872 as Rock, Paper, We’re Getting On With Kieron Just Fine Okay. Following the inquest, we rebranded to Rock, Paper, Shotgun and found the cool edge we’d lacked.

The version of Armello [official site] sold on GOG is now called Armello DRM Free Edition. What that means is DLC released on Steam isn’t on GOG. Positive rebranding!

The Division’s Expansions Delayed To Improve The Game

Ubisoft have delayed the next two paid DLC expansions for The Division [official site] because they feel the base game needs work first. Good! That’s the way it should be done. Ubi explain, “it has become clear with your feedback and our own observations that our priority should now be on improving the core gameplay experience.” Good-o! So the next two expansions are delayed, and Update 1.4 will launch separately in October to smarten the place up.

Over The Plop: Battlefield 1 DLC Season Pass Detailed

Battlefield 1 [official site] is launching an open beta test next week but nah, you don’t want to hear about that. The full game’s out in two months but nope, you don’t want to know more about that either. I know you. The question on your lips is: “Can I buy DLC?”

Electronic Arts today announced the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass, saying that “for only $50” – only $50 extra! only! the cheek! – players can get four expansions, including new maps, new weapons, new vehicles, and French and Russian armies. You can even pre-order the DLC to go with your pre-ordered game.

Dark Souls III: Ashes Of Ariandel DLC Coming In October

We’ve known that two big story add-ons were coming to Dark Souls III [official site] and now the first is officially announced. Ashes of Ariandel will send the Ashen One to a new land to do the usual stuff: fight new monsters, duff up new bosses, jab at new lore, put on new hats, and learn a few new magic tricks. It’ll launch on October 25th and, until then, here’s a trailer introducing Ariandel:

Total Warhammer: Grim & The Grave DLC Announced

If there’s any sort of game you should expect DLC from, it’s Games Workshop. It wouldn’t feel right – wouldn’t feel authentic – if you didn’t, every few weeks, find yourself muttering “Oh for! Yes I do want that fancy unit but I just bought… for crying out loud, you flipping rotters. Fine. Fine, I’ll buy your ruddy ghost-drawn boneshrine!”

Want to field a Mortis Engine in Total War: Warhammer [official site]? You’ll need to buy the next add-on, The Grim & The Grave, which boosts both the Empire and Vampire Counts, see. But, in a very un-Games Workshop way, more freebies are coming too.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Unlock Times, DLC Season Pass Details

Gosh oh golly, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is out in less than 24 hours! Square Enix have confirmed Steam unlock times and I’m mighty excited. The cyberpunk FPS-RPG is pretty great, our Graham thinks – the lucky dog! Luckily for me and my overexcitement, publishers Square Enix have also poured a cool glass of cyberwater over my cyberhead to make me calm down and instead ask “Why would you do that now?” They’ve detailed the contents of Mankind Divided’s DLC Season Pass, y’see. Nothing cools that launch giddiness like DLC announcements!

The Burpiest Place On Earth: Fallout 4 Visits Nuka World On The 30th

Level design has a lot in common with theme park design. They use similar tricks to guide and lure visitors, tell stories with the world, reward visitors, conceal flaws and boundaries, reveal surprises… heck, go watch Scott Rogers’ GDC talk Everything I Learned About Level Design I Learned from Disneyland. But what has Fallout 4 [official site] learned from Disneyland about building an actual theme park? We’ll see on August 30th, as Bethesda have announced that’s when the Nuka World expansion will launch with a new fizzypop Disneyland copycat. Have a look in this new trailer:

Doom Half-Price To Mark First Multiplayer DLC Launch

The first bit of Doom [official site] multiplayer DLC is out now for £12 and boy, I feel strange saying that. Look, expansions to id Software’s shooter have traditionally been a bit shaky, largely adding so-so singleplayer campaigns made by other studios, but… sheesh, £12 for three maps, a new gun, and some dress-up odds and ends? That’s fairly standard for shooters nowadays, I suppose, but it feels wrong for a game from shareware veterans. Not to mention that multiplayer is hardly Doom’s strongest side.

But hey, the base game is half-price all weekend to mark this, so that’s something.
