EA announced this morning that a free “Extended Cut” DLC will be released for Mass Effect 3 sometime this summer. Here is what Bioware co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka had to say:
“With the Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut we think we have struck a good balance in delivering the answers players are looking for while maintaining the team’s artistic vision for the end of this story arc.”
Apparently the free DLC will expand on the outcomes of the endings with new cinematics to provide players with more closure to their playthroughs. The “Extended Cut” DLC will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC later this summer.
A newly discovered set of silver and bronze awards on the PS3Trophies website names an upcoming, and unannounced, DLC package for Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham City. Dubbed “Harley Quinn’s Revenge”, it’s speculated that this DLC will be the first story-driven content released for the game in place of the typical challenge map and costume releases. It’s also suggested that Harley Quinn’s Revenge will be played from the perspective of the Caped Crusader’s side-kick Robin. However this is up for debate as the wording for one of the achievements almost makes it sound as if multiple characters (Batman, Catwoman, Nightwing, and Robin) can be used…
First being revealed via Dragon Age‘s executive producer Mark Darrah’s Twitter and then through an official statement on the BioWare forums the planned Exalted March DLC for Dragon Age 2 has been officially cancelled. Instead, Darrah writes, the Dragon Age team will be shifting the entirety of their focus onto the next game in the series (this being the closest thing to an official Dragon Age 3 reveal yet).
Personally I’m a little upset at this news. While I won’t hesitate to admit that Dragon Age 2 was leagues behind Origins and had plenty of issues on its own I still found some enjoyment in it – especially the Legacy and Mark of the Assassin DLCs which vividly demonstrated that BioWare was listening to its fans and making the right changes where they were needed. There’s just something about the Dragon Age series that I like so much and missing out on some additional content that was coming down the pipe makes me a little sad.
Oh well, here’s hoping that the Dragon Age team has what it takes to make the third game in the franchise the best out of them all. The pressure is certainly on after the fan reaction to the second game and the fact that BioWare has wrapped up its all-star Mass Effect series for the moment.
If I had my way, I would’ve made Street Fighter X Tekken one of the greatest fighting games ever. Hindsight is 20/20 and it should have been better. SFXT’s launch wasn’t disastrous, but it hit some major bumps in the road thanks to some controversy, quality control issues, and negative PR. Some of the problems seem inexcusable. At the very least some of these problems seem amendable given a little more development time. Alas, in an industry so dependent on making deadlines, games must ship on time, finished or not, bugs and all. If you’re interested in knowing what we thought of the overall product, read our review, otherwise, continue on to see how Street Fighter X Tekken should have been if I had my way.
Prepare to open up your wallets for some Street Fighter X Tekken DLC. Capcom-Unity posted a major update on their blog with information that details on fixes, title updates, and the DLC that will be appearing throughout the year to keep the experience fresh.
April 3rd will see the release of all of those neat Swap Costumes as they call them, some of which you can see here and here. They will run you $1 each or Microsoft Points, or you can get the Street Fighter pack or Tekken pack for a cool $13 each. That’s 1040 Microsoft Points. You’ll save $6 if you a pack ($12 if you spring for both). That same day will see the release of some new color packs as well as new quick combos.
Sometime after that, a new tournament support update will add a “dial system” allowing a faster way of choosing gems, but more importantly, it is supposed to address the online sound issues the plague the game.
We already know about the characters on disc. They will be unlocked in the future along with a slew of new gems. Click the jump for the quick and easy breakdown on the content and pricing.
In Tropico 4‘s previous DLC (Plantador) we saw our beloved “El Presidente” wasting his time improving the island’s agriculture and planting crops.
Now with the Quick Dry Cement add-on El Presidente can throw away his aspirations of becoming an environmentally conscious country boy and turn the entirety of the island into a concrete jungle.
The DLC, priced at $4.99 USD, includes: the Cement Factory (quickens construction), the Constructor trait (free cement factory & construction works gain XP faster), the Engineer helmet (for avatar), a new mission theme, and finally a handful of new decorations.
On February 28, Playstation 3 gamers subscribed to Call of Duty Elite will get a taste of the DLC that Xbox 360 Elite members have been swimming in for the last week. Well, maybe not swimming. There’s only two Modern Warfare 3 maps, Liberation and Piazza, so maybe splashing is a little more accurate.
At this point, it is still unknown when the general public and PC will have access to the DLC. It could be awhile – maybe months. While you wait, we have screenshots below for you to ogle.
You may recall the announcement by Deep Silver of some DLC coming Dead Island‘s way. Well the Ryder White singleplayer add-on goes live tomorrow (February 1st) and to get your blood pumping a trailer has been released.
While it’s certainly no “little girl falling out a window backwards”, once again it seems like whoever made this trailer was going for a very emotionally deep feeling. I don’t know why they bother doing this though, as much as I wanted Dead Island to be something more than a zombie stomp-fest that’s really all it is in the end.
Anyway check out the trailer below…
Today publisher Deep Silver announced the Treasure Island DLC for their upcoming pirate themed RPG Risen 2. Anyone who pre-orders the game prior to it’s April release date will receive Treasure Island for free.
The DLC adds an additional quest line that continues a story-arc from the first game. Revolving around Captain Steelbeard’s legendary treasure, the player teams up with Patty and a man who once was a part of Steelbeard’s crew named Harlok. The hunt will take you to a completely new island location where puzzles, loot, and dangers await you. If you’re successful in your search the player will be rewarded with a special item, only available in the DLC, that will permanently boost your stats.
After the jump you’ll find some new screens from the game…
Today Relic has released three new multiplayer DLC packs for their third person hack-n-slash/shooter Warhammer 40k: Space Marine.
The Dreadnaught ($9.99 USD) let’s players fight over the ability to encase one team member in the infamous Dreadnaught armor on three new maps. While the Iron Hands Chapter Pack and the Death Guard Champions Chapter Pack are each $2.99 and act as cosmetic DLC – letting players adorn the appearance of these two Space Marine and Chaos Space Marine Chapters respectively.
