Dishonored: Death of the Outsider offers deicide from 15 Sept

As you might know Dishonored 2 is welcoming a new standalone adventure expansiony thing called Dishonored: Death of the Outsider [official site]. Well, I say "welcoming". I don't remember anything in Dishonored ever being welcoming, more horrific and with the capacity to go chaotically and mass-murderingly wrong. What I'm trying to say is there's a new thing involving Billie Lurk and Daud and the Outsider…

Verdun expandalone Tannenberg hits WW1 Eastern Front

World War 1 FPS Verdun is off to the Eastern Front in a standalone expansion this year, developers Blackmill Games and M2H have announced. Named simply Tannenberg [official site], after 1914's Battle of Tannenberg, it'll see the Russian Empire scrapping with the Central Powers from forest to plains. Verdun is fairly serious as shooters go, more Red Orchestra than Battlefield, and Tannenberg will continue that…

Ashes Of The Singularity’s Escalation Due In November

Stardock's gorgeous-but-very-plain RTS Ashes of the Singularity [official site] is getting its first standalone expansion with on November 3rd. Yes, the name sounds very much like it could be a new mode or expansion in nearly any other game, but that's the name they went with.

Sorcerer King: Rivals Brings Expandalone Godhood

Stardock today released Sorcerer King: Rivals [official site], a standalone expansion to 2015's fantasy turn-based strategy game Sorcerer King. While that was about stopping a dark overlord from ascending to godhood and killing all the fluffy kittens, or whatever it is dark gods get up to, Rivals lets players be y'know rivals. Players get to seek godhood too this time, and I'm sure you have…

Sorcerer King’s Rivals Standalone Expansion Announced

Stardock have announced a standalone expansion for their turn-based strategy 'em up Sorcerer King. Named Rivals [official site], it'll give players a chance to go toe-to-toe with the Sorcerer King by collecting magic to ascend to godhood themselves. Our Adam quite liked Sorcerer King, saying it "deserves plaudits for being something altogether different rather than yet another iteration of a game we've been playing for…

Democracy 3’s Africa Expandalone Released

Positech Games have released Democracy 3: Africa [official site], a standalone expansion to their political strategy game. It's the same basic 'try to run society through decisions and a billion buttons and charts and statistics' idea as regular Democracy 3 (see Wot Graham Thinks of that) but hopped on over to Africa. This means a makeover and a few changes to the policies and societies…

Company of Heroes 2: British Forces Expandalone Coming

Focusing on the eastern front was a novelty for Company of Heroes 2 [official site], shifting away from the Brits and Yanks - who are hardly underrepresented in WW2 games - to the Red Army and their own fight with the Axis forces. You can't keep Brits out for long, though. They get everywhere. Sooner or later, they'll pop up and demand "Oi Ivan, gizza…

Ghost Train Simulator: The Count Of Monster Disco

A dracula wants you to nip out in your ghost train to pick up a few supplies for his Halloween party. That's a thing. That's real. It's 2014's Halloween gag game from Train Simulator folks Dovetail, and far more extravagant than past 'Trains vs. Zombies' offerings. Its name alone deserves its own line: The Count of Monster Disco. Cor! That's a name and a half…

Watch It And Weep – Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell

Say, you wouldn't fancy seeing Johnny Gat blast away with a locust gun, fly on burning wings, blow up demons in a rocket-launching motorised armchair, summon imps, mow down lost souls, and pick a fight with an archduke of Hell, would you? See, I try not to post too many trailers, but I saw this trailer showing five minutes of gameplay from the upcoming expandalone…

Expandalone Alone: Company of Heroes 2 Ardennes Assault

The last we saw of Company of Heroes 2 was multiplayer expandalone The Western Front Armies, but what about people who prefer single-player? Don't they deserve expandalones? Aren't they inherently more alone? Hold your horses and hang onto your butts, dear single players, as Relic today announced Ardennes Assault, an expandalonealone for CoH 2 seeing US Forces fending off Germany's Oberkommando West during the Battle…

Company Of Heroes 2 Multiplayer Standing Alone In June

Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies is a curious release. It's a multiplayer-only expandalone spin-off from Company of Heroes 2, but with two different armies--the new US Forces and Oberkommando West--and 8 new maps but still able to play on CoH 2 maps and against plain old CoH 2 players. But who's it for? Perhaps we'll answer that question come June 24, as…

More King’s Bounty: A Trip To The Dark Side

Resist cynicism or die. Hope. Dream. Think. Act. Be vulnerable. Open yourself to risk or you'll never truly learn, love, or live. That hip new band may very well drop a cracking second album, I can make that Cronenbergian game controller I've been dreaming of, my mum shall stop hinting that I'm going to die alone in a ditch, and King's Bounty will get an…

Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry Will Stand Alone

Assasssin's Creed IV released itself a significant DLC add-on called Freedom Cry, back in November. Naturally the PC version suffered a last-minute (almost literally this time) delay, but it did eventually emerge at £8/£10. Here's a strange thing. Later this month the slave-themed separate storyline is getting re-released, this time as a standalone purchase. It's a chance to say the best word in gaming! EXPANDALONE!…

Jagged Alliance Is Back In Action Again, With Crossfire

There are too many Jagged Alliances all at once! Two! I can barely cope with two of anything, my arms constantly getting tangled as I try to do simple tasks like combing a pony. But be told that Jagged Alliance: Crossfire has nothing to do with Jagged Alliance: Online. Well, not nothing, but you know what I mean. It is, in fact, an EXPANDALONE! to…

Obscured: Total War Shogun 2 Expandalone

Videogames can expand now? Whatever is going on? And they can do it alone? I shall call this... EXPANDALONE! (You know, the last time I went on about how utterly brilliant that word is, the guy who coined it got in touch. He is my hero.) Shogun 2: Total 2 War Shogun is doing this some more, with the addition of Fall Of The Samurai:…
