Since release, Total War: Warhammer has had it's fair share of additional content, unfortunately most of it hasn't been all that spectacular. But, that's all set to change with the latest Wood Elves DLC due for release next month. Following in the footsteps of the recent Beastmen pack we got, this new bit of DLC not only introduces a new race to the game (the Wood Elves) but also a new forest-themed campaign.
Which, for some reason has quite a few people sounding off in the comments proclaiming the existence of "Alan Wake 2!!!", a game that Remedy itself has stated is not currently being working on. And following on from that announcement, where they said that they were working on two new games, this teaser video from the studio's Sam Lake (aka the original Mac Payne), features the man doing his very best Max Payne face. Because, he IS Max Payne. So our money's on a new Max Payne from Remedy. Which when you come right down to it, would be pretty awesome.
Called 'Operation Red Crow' the free update will include a new map, and for Season Pass holders two new operators. That will become free to all players as of November 25. This update marks the final add-on for the first season of Rainbow Six Siege, with a second-year of content also planned for the game that will follow a similar release cycle. It's a pretty commendable system, where all new maps and modes are free for anyone who owns the game, with any additional content available through in-game currency.
And in royal fashion Varian becomes the game's first multi-class hero with a set of skills perfect for either a tank or a melee assassin. Announced at BlizzCon, Varian Wyrnn, represents another iconic Blizzard character added to the Heroes of the Storm roster. As the company's take on the whole MOBA craze, HOTS has a simple pick-up and play quality that you might not find elsewhere. And with the new brawls and co-op matches, it's one of the most fun and entertaining MOBAs we've ever played. Yeah, we've only just started getting into it.
If you haven't had the chance to check out The Elder Scrolls Online now is the time to do so, with a free-to-play weekend for the game happening right now on PS4 and PC. Until November 20 everyone will have access to the core game and all of it's content. And thanks to the new One Tamriel update which does away with level requirements, everyone will also be able to group up with everyone. In an Elder Scrolls festival of inclusion. That no doubt will feature a lot of monster slaying.
But just like with the recent release of Skyrim, PlayStation 4 mod support will be limited to mods that utilise in-game assets. So, no Macho Man Deathclaws or My Little Pony Power Armor skins. This will result, like with Skyrim, in a size-limit of around about 1GB for any installed mods. It's better than nothing, but you can understand how most people see this as a sort of band-aid approach to mod support.
Recent entries in the Final Fantasy series have been weird, there's no denying that. Even for those us that understand basic gameplay concepts like questing, talking to NPC's, and battling monsters. Final Fantasy XV, perhaps the weirdest entry in the series yet, with its mix of Americana, fantasy, sci-fi, and questionable hairstyles, seems to have broken late night personality Conan O'Brien's perception of what constitutes a videogame.
Okay, so according to a number of sources including the reliable folks over at Eurogamer, it sounds like the brilliant-looking The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won't be ready in time for the launch of the Nintendo Switch. As per the accounts, localisation work is still being completed on the title and then a further four to six months of testing and fine-tuning is expected to take place.
And although it contains some free-to-play content, will set you back $14.99 in order to have "unlimited access to each of the three modes" in the game. Which, for a mobile game seems like a pretty steep price point. But hey, this is Nintendo and Mario so a premium price for what looks like one of the most lavishly detailed endless runners might actually be worth it. The game does look good, and with Nintendo at the helm we can probably expect some wonderful level-design.
Well, that didn't take long. After being announced at BlizzCon just over a week or so ago, all the changes laid out for Overwatch's near future are now here! That means new hero Sombra has finally joined the ranks, ready to hack her way through the meta that we've only just grown accustomed to. We kid of course, we can't wait to see her in action. The latest update, which is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, also brings the exciting new Arcade Mode to the game, and the new 3v3 and 1v1 Arena, Ecopoint: Antarctica.
