All good things eventually come to an end, and sadly, Bethesda's VP of marketing Pete Hines confirmed on Twitter that Nuka World will be the last expansion for Fallout 4. However, before the post-apocalyptic amusement park add-on arrives in August, Bethesda has one other piece of DLC up its sleeve, the Vault-Tec Workshop.The Vault-Tec Workshop is scheduled to release on July 26 (two Tuesdays from now) for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Essentially a spin the popular mobile title Fallout Shelter (coming to PC tomorrow, by the way), the Vault-Tec Workshop allows you to build a massive vault of... Read more...
Bethesda is getting ready to send Fallout 4 fans to the high seas with Far Harbor, the third and most ambitious DLC pack for the post-apocalyptic title that was honored as Game of the Year at the DICE Awards, but what comes next? Perhaps a trip to a wasteland theme park called Nuka World, which holds all sorts of fun possibilities. Reddit forum member "flashman7870" data mined Fallout 4's game files and posted an interesting screenshot of what he found. There were three entries of note, including "DLCNukaWorld.esm," "DLCworkshop02.exm," and "DLCworkshop03.esm." Bethesda often uses the file extension... Read more...
Nearly a month ago, Bethesda brought us news of three DLC packs in store for its hugely popular Fallout 4. The first of those three packs, Automatron, is now set to launch on March 22nd and will be filled with plenty of mechanized, murderous robot mayhem. Bethesda describe Automatron, which retails for $9.99, writing: The mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons... Read more...
Bethesda has been teasing about upcoming DLC for its smash hit Fallout 4, but the developer unleashed the hounds today, announcing three new add-ons for the game.

In a series of tweets, Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has teased some of the game's upcoming content, while giving fans little to go on (as usual). When asked about an update regarding the release of Creation Kit, Pete Hines, Bethesda PR, said, "We're pretty close to divulging details." We're not given a timeframe, but are told that it "Won't be much longer." The response to the DLC question is much the same: "We're not far off." We’re also doing a complete overhaul of Fallout 4 Survival mode. Food, sleep, diseases, danger and more. Stay tuned. — BethesdaGameStudios (@BethesdaStudios) February 11,... Read more...
It's been an interesting year for fans of fighting games. With Mortal Kombat X, gaming buddies can finally settle the debate as to who would win in a fight, Jason Voorhees or Predator. And with Street Fighter V, Capcom is introducing a new way to play, one that features a brand new service-based approach with regards to downloadable content (DLC). Straight to the point, you'll never have to buy DLC. Additional content will either be free to download outright, or can be earned simply by playing the game. Balance changes and system adjustments will fall into the former category, while the latter... Read more...
In the last few weeks, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Unity has become a cautionary tale of how treating a franchise as a perfunctory once-a-year update machine while simultaneously stoking player expectations can catastrophically backfire. Once it realized how unhappy its player base was, Ubisoft snapped into action, stepped up to the plate, and courageously blamed everybody else for its own wretched game. Now that it's clear that this strategy has failed, Ubisoft is instead handing out genuine apologies, a promise to do better in the future, and free DLC. Yannis Mallat, the CEO of Ubisoft Montreal,...

Looks like Electronic Arts is not holding back this year with its sports games. The video game publisher is expecting to make around $1 billion in revenue from downloadable content and is also taking steps to crack down on cheaters for its various sports titles. Madden NFL 15 is one of the key games to EA’s strategy. Aside from players paying $60 for the standard game, EA is pumping out a plethora of add-on content such as Ultimate Team players, jerseys, coaches, playbooks, and stadiums. The Madden Ultimate Team packs, which can be purchased with Madden Points, are a huge moneymaker for EA... Read more...
One of the great universal truths of modern gaming is that preorders suck. The term refers to the practice of ordering a title at some point before it actually ships in order to get access to a variety of minor outfit tweaks, a few starting weapons, or a few boosts to early gameplay. Today, some publishers take this practice to truly ridiculous levels; the recent game Watch Dogs has no fewer than nine preorder options, and none of them include every single perk or capability. GameStop, perhaps sensing that there's pressure building against the model, wants to turn the dial up to 11 -- and create... Read more...
If you've ever been to Disneyland or Disney World (or any of the five theme parks around the world, then you've seen at least a glimpse of Tomorrowland. Maybe you thought to yourself, "That's not how I envision the future." Well, what does your version of the future look like? One way you can show it is with the upcoming SimCity Cities of Tomorrow expansion pack. The first DLC for SimCity will be available on November 12, 2013. If you decide to snag it, you'll be able to take your current cities that you've already worked so hard on and transform them in into futuristic looking buildings and roads.... Read more...
The more that things change, the more things stay the same. It's not always true, but funnily enough, it has a way of continuing to be a solid adage. Despite incredible advances in graphical technology, one of the world's most popular games at the moment involves precious little resources: Minecraft. It's a pixelated masterpiece, and it has engrossed a huge chunk of gamers far and wide, platform to platform. Soon, another major title will joining forces -- in fact, one of the world's most graphically intense titles will be coming to one of the most graphically simple titles. The Xbox 360 edition...

With the release of Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, we were led to believe that Borderlands 2 would be seeing no more DLC. As it turns out, we're just not going to be seeing more DLC that introduces vast new worlds. At PAX Australia, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, who just last month showed us around the Gearbox offices and his humble abode, announced that the biggest piece of upcoming DLC is called Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, which increases the level cap by 11, adds a "Digistruct Peak Challenge", and allow gamers to "over level" the game, in order to continue getting a challenge that...

When it comes to creative advertising potential, it's hard to beat a game like SimCity. In most titles, the idea of in-game advertising makes little sense. Sarah Kerrigan doesn't shop at Victoria's Secret, Booker DeWitt is an unlikely fan of Coca-Cola, and the post-apocalyptic setting of Metro 2033 isn't exactly prime McDonald's turf. But SimCity? SimCity is a game where it makes perfect sense to integrate real-world brands and buildings. A city filled with familiar logos and advertising is a city that more closely resembles the real world. That's undoubtedly why EA decided to partner with Crest... Read more...
In a surprising change of pace, it appears that GameStop will be returning to the PC games market with an announcement that customers can now place pre-orders for digital downloads. Seemingly following EA's lead, the brick-and-mortar retailer has begun shifting the some of its focus off of packaged goods sales and onto digital distribution. GameStop recently nabbed up the Impulse digital distribution platform, in a bid to compete with Steam and EA. The first game to receive the new treatment will be Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which launches August 23 in-store and online. Customers looking to purchase... Read more...
