Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V has announced the details of its forthcoming new DLC for its Castlevania: Lord of the Shadow 2 title.
Entitled ‘Revelations’, the new content will be released on 25th March and follows fan-favourite Alucard, as exclusive new branches of the immersive storyline are uncovered. The legendary vampire, Alucard, the turned son of Gabriel, has shunned human life for many years, instead choosing to hunt only creatures of the night. The DLC takes place just before the apocalyptic events of Castlevania: Lord of the Shadow 2, where Alucard readies for his father’s return and the forthcoming battle against Satan. As the plot unfolds it begins to reveal how the vampire is inextricably linked to his Father’s fate.
‘Revelations’ takes place within the epic world seen in Castlevania: Lord of the Shadow 2. As the vampire warrior Alucard, players must discover his secrets, unearth the true extent of his involvement in Dracula’s story and set in motion the events of Castlevania: Lord of the Shadow 2. The DLC expands the incredible story of the recently-released sequel, with the fate of the Belmont clan unveiled. Alucard has his own unique, powerful abilities, including use of the Glaciem and Igneas powers. Similarly, Alucard also has vampiric abilities which allow him to transform into a wolf, a swarm of bats and even turn back time! Blood fuels your capabilities, drink the blood of your enemies to intensify your immortal powers.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is currently available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Its sumptuous 3D world and epic quest are now enhanced and extended with all-new locations and the chance to experience familiar ones through new eyes via the ‘Revelations’ DLC, as the story of the Belmonts is brought to its full conclusion.
Get a first look at Devastation, the second DLC Pack available for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Devastation brings four small to medium-sized Multiplayer maps: Ruins, Behemoth, Collision, and Unearthed, which is a re-imagined version of Dome, the fan favourite map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Devastation also includes the “Ripper,” a brand new tactical 2-in-1 weapon with the unique ability to switch from SMG to AR and back on the fly, in the middle of combat. And as a special bonus for Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass holders on Xbox 360/Xbox One, the “Ripper” is available NOW for immediate use in-game! Other platform Season Pass Holders will also get early access to the “Ripper” with dates to be announced soon.
The Extinction saga picks up with Episode 2: Mayday. Following the events of Nightfall, players board an abandoned research vessel, in search of answers. Players will face two new alien foes – Seeders, and the 100ft tall “Kraken. New weapon mods and paths to explore come packed in this exciting chapter.
Devastation arrives first, exclusively on Xbox Live on April 3rd, with other platforms to follow.
The somewhat all new map pack from Activision and company lands on Playstation and PC. Containing four multiplayer maps, two new guns for use online and the first in a series of chapters for the horde-like extinction mode. Can it surpass the likes of older Call of Duty map packs, or will it simply pass by unnoticed?
Fog, a map not only for horror fans, but for people in those blasted ghillie suits to lie prone in the outskirts of the map near bushes. Oh, and for people who can’t help but flock to a solitary house with four entrance points of which are offset only by a rather balancing view upon some major traffic areas. A small cavernous area provides ample opportunities for the run and gunner, yet the subtle chasm inside will claim many a sarcastic death from the few who don’t look where they’re going. Despite being a bit of camp fest, there are some nifty things about Fog. For one, there are probably dozens of nods to famous horror films of yore that are great fun to find; if that doesn’t satisfy your lust for blood, there is always the KEM package which, if you can get your hands on it, transforms you into Michael Myers. Similar to the Maniac suit, it let’s you run amok, this time with a deadly axe, needless to say, this is probably the primary reason people vote for Fog in the rotation.
Bayview is probably the largest letdown for me in the pack due to the old height advantage problem. That and my expectations for the moving tram. Set in sunny California, Bayview is home to some tightly cluttered buildings, a long and largely useless promenade and a tram. Most of the action, whether it be yours or in the enemies killcam, will be found in one of two upper floor buildings that encompass the centre of the map. I’m all for tactics, but the majority of the map is a giant killbox. There just doesn’t seem to be much of a flow or a back and forth. Either people are riding the mostly bulletproof tram for a laugh or are sat up top waiting for people to obliviously run into their sights. Whilst the tram can be used in slightly inventive ways such as placing a sentry turret inside it, I was hoping for some incredulous objective play such as the B flag in domination being placed inside. It may not have worked but it would have added an extra dimension to the map.
Containment is one of the better offerings, two opposing sides, separated by three routes. A large bridge houses some nasty crawlspaces under the radiation leaking truck which adorns the maps epicentre. Stray too close and an EMP style reaction cripples your effectiveness. With each side playing host to claustrophobic buildings and flank routes, it’s the snipers and long range rifles that hold the obvious advantages down the somewhat obscured lines of sight, yet equipping the no fall damage perk and performing some death defying leaps off the bridge will easily get you around the back of your foes. Whilst for the most part, the map flows nicely; even sometimes evolving into a standoff, there are some peculiar inclusions. For one, there is an incredibly easy to defend, upper floor house situated pretty much behind one of the spawns, making it an absolute nightmare in games like domination. Across the opposite side, it doesn’t fare much better what with the already limiting ‘dull brown filter’ being applied to Ghosts, it simply exasperates the difficulty in picking out foes against the brown backdrops.
Ignition is the token remake of the ‘classic’ map Scrapyard from Modern Warfare 2. Fans will likely know what to expect from this, the high vantage points offer some particularly vicious lines of sight whilst the outskirts are full of medium range assault rifle battles. Features new to this rendition include an all new underground section, perfect for traversing the almost unnecessarily open ground of which lies above, along with more jet powered rocket ‘traps’ that will rarely kill anyone, but do look nice. Players will generally have to be on their toes as enemies seem to crop up from everywhere on this map. The camping so and so’s are however not too much of a threat as there are many positions to dislodge them from; that’s a trade off I think most players would accept. Games of domination can be particularly hectic due to the (often) short and narrow lines of sight offered by the distractions of flag capturing; despite the objectives being mostly out in the open, there are surprisingly few deaths occurring from unknown locations.
Nightfall starts us off as the first of four in a series of episodic content for extinction. An incident occurs at an Alaskan research facility up in the wilderness, (surprise!) and it looks like it’s up to us to retrieve the intel in an attempt to discover what went wrong. Queue new aliens and a ridiculously large boss. One of the new enemies is quite simply a pain in arse, they come equipped with one of the most annoying traits present in any game, teleportation. One minute you’re quite happy keeping them at range, an instance later, you’re getting slapped silly by an alien. Brilliant. Fortunately, someone nice has littered the area with special lockers that contain weapons that seem almost necessary in some parts. Unfortunately, the keys to the lockers are often guarded and can distract you into a fit of inattentional blindness. Get past all this however, and you’re treat to a showdown with the ‘Breeder’, an arachnid-esque sponge that towers over you and has the bite to match it’s bark. Good luck.
Finally, the Maverick, my primary reason of interest in the Onslaught DLC. A dual purpose weapon, you can equip it in either it’s sniper or assault rifle form. As a sniper, it’s semi-auto, has a lot of recoil and sports a tracker sight with an increased optic zoom. Whilst it’s not for the sniper purists out there, it’s still a serviceable weapon; it’s useful in most sniping scenarios. As an assault rifle, it possesses a rarity in Ghosts, good, clear iron sights. Whilst the recoil is a little strong compared to it’s brethren of the same category, it feels meaty at close range and certainly adequate at medium encounters. Pop a grip and a muzzle brake on and enjoy the satisfaction of not using either the Remmington or the AK 12 for once! The one issue I do have with the Maverick is the ‘lightweight wooden stock’, not only does it not seem to match the otherwise semi-futuristic look of the weapon, but most of the available camo’s simply don’t look right when equipped.
As a whole, it’s a fairly hearty piece of DLC. Whilst there are some slight disappointments, in terms of the potential missed opportunities, and the defiantly bland colour palette opposing Black Ops 2’s rich and vibrant appeal. However, there’s a lot of playtime on offer, the Maverick’s not just a novelty and the maps are, thankfully, smaller.

“There will be some paid DLC,” he said. “We’re going to do a season pass just because if you buy it up front, it’s a deal. We’re not going to do microtransactions. You just buy it up front, and you get a better price.
“We’re also going to do free updates. There are things that we want in the game that we didn’t get to ship in the final game. So we’ll add private matches and things like that for free.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC can now purchase the first DLC Pack – Onslaught. The new DLC Pack delivers four unique and classically designed Call of Duty multiplayer maps, the all-new “Maverick” dual-purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle, and the first instalment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative, “Episode 1: Nightfall.”
New multiplayer maps in Onslaught include:
- Fog: Set alongside the banks of a murky lake, players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of evil and don the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters, in this chilling homage to classic horror films.
-BayView: A coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.
-Containment: This map drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centers on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.
-Ignition: Is a reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favorite multiplayer map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler, and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close attention.
Onslaught also arms players with the Maverick, a deadly new, dual-purpose addition to their multiplayer arsenal. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock, players can choose to use the Maverick as either an Assault Rifle or Sniper Rifle, depending on their tactical needs.
Anchoring Onslaught is “Episode 1: Nightfall,” the first installment in Extinction’s new, four-part episodic narrative. As the initial foray into this single, connected story that will be told across each DLC Pack launch throughout the year, “Episode 1: Nightfall” takes fans to a remote research facility hidden deep within the Alaskan wilderness, where a small recon team must infiltrate the facility to find out what happened to the mysterious Nightfall Program. This expanded Extinction storyline introduces new characters, plus two all-new alien species, and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverizes the Cryptids, as players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind’s first contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.
Fans can purchase Onslaught as either a standalone DLC Pack for a suggested retail price of $14.99, or purchase the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass. Season Pass holders not only get all four epic DLC Packs for the discounted suggested retail price of $49.99*, but they also get instant access to the downloadable multiplayer map, “Free Fall,” as well as the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, player patch, player card and player background.
Episode 3 of the Untold Stories DLC is out and was surprisingly really good. A bit of recap, we’ve already played a spec ops commander and an alcoholic feisty resistance member within the zombie-ridden city of Los Perdidos. These two protagonists aren’t as interesting in comparison to the renegade biker Hunter Thibodeux in the Chaos Rising DLC but what makes this additional pack a definite must have?
Hunter, if you haven’t played through the games main campaign, is the first boss you stumble across within your first hour of play. Knowing this you’ll find this prologue leading up to the cross over a nice touch to the story telling aspect of the Dead Rising 3 experience. This tattooed Redneck isn’t a hero with no redeeming features. You are playing a straight up villain and this is what makes Chaos Rising different and unforgettable. Starting of in prison for wrongly taking the wrap for your crew you’re tasked with escaping with no prior weapons in your inventory. I honestly played through this DLC like it was to be a survival horror game which is what the Dead Rising games are but fused with dark humour through over the top characters and the ridiculous weapon combos usually thrown in making the series less scary. This prison break section was pretty much as scary as this game gets. Having to find weapons whilst only having yourself to answer to Hunter is as lonely as he’ll get.
With revenge in his blood, Hunter’s goal is to track down and find his gang who put him in prison. Amongst the zombie hordes you’ll be hunted down by that said gang who have groups throwing molotov cocktails at you and will beat you with bats. The streets of Los Perdidos has never been so dangerous and with Hunter’s quest being more melee weapon based you’ll find you’re getting up close and personal in more fights. There’s an interesting selection of new weapons to have fun with which includes a petrol canister strapped with flares to draw the zombie’s attention before burning all in the vicinity. But the main focus is centred on a motorcycle with moving sawblades at the front that can also shoot blade projectiles, serious crazy fun and easily the best selling point.
What Chaos Rising has which the other 2 didn’t include was actual boss fights. Yes, actual bosses with health bars just like the ones in the campaign. This makes a huge difference and gives me faith that the next instalment could be the best of all 3 combined in one final outing. The side missions in this are fun to do, collecting custom bikes and bringing them back to the bike shop, exactly how Grand Theft Auto does it but with the undead in the way. The collectables include finding top self rare alcohol as well as destroying emergency telephone posts across the city, the generic stuff.
Chaos Rising felt shorter than the other 2 available but has a longer lasting impression with scenarios and characters that are less forgettable than in the others. Hunting down bikers is so far the highlight to the Untold Stories episodes and fits right at home as an alternative perspective from a villainous protagonist.
