Sony has released a new update for Soul Sacrifice in preparation for the new and free DLC which will arrive today.
Soul Sacrifice Vita
The new DLC brings with it new quests, new bosses, a new map and even new social media features.
In order to gain access to this content you’ll need to update your game via your PS Vita and then head over to the PS Store to download the content.

Players will need to update the game from LiveArea and then visit the PlayStation Store to download unlock keys for the new content, which is detailed in full below (via the PS Blog).
Here’s what’s new:

New quests:
Eight new quests will be added upon using the unlock key. To play the quests, go to Mad Chronicle > Inside Avalon > Avalon Pacts > Forgotten Pact > Hour of Amber (game progress required). In these new quests, you will see two new boss characters called Dullahan and Behemoth and a new map called Caverns of Goliath.
About Dullahan: There was once a knight whose name was known the world over… But it was not his abilities that had made him famous. Indeed, he was viewed with curiosity, not respect. Many thought him downright unsettling; it was the way in which he did battle. While most warriors took pleasure in striking their enemies and avoiding their blows, this knight was the exact opposite. Apparently he would howl with joy whenever struck, and his face would twist with satisfaction…
About Behemoth: In a quiet town, a young boy lived together with his parents. He had always had a big appetite, even since he was an infant. Above all, apples were his favourite. Any day he had an apple at hand was a happy day to him. And his parents, knowing this, had an easy time raising him. Though they spoiled him in his infancy, there came a day when even his parents refused his demands for apples. The tantrum he threw was frightening. By that point, he was massively obese, easily weighing as much as three grown men. To say the thrashings of a boy that size were beyond his parents’ handling is an understatement…
New map: Caverns of Goliath: You’re basically inside the body of a soldier who turned into a giant. The digestive fluid is always being secreted, so you constantly lose your HP just being there. The battle against Dullahan there will be quite challenging!
New Black Rite: Berserker: Download the free unlock key from PlayStation Store to add Berserker as your new Black Rite. Offer your brain to unleash its potential. The price for using this Black Rite will be to have redacted info on equipped Offerings. So you will not be able to see what Offerings you’ve set on each button.
Posting to Twitter and Facebook: You can post your play information – such as the number of sacrifices/saves, or the status of your right arm – to Twitter/Facebook once a day. You will gain lacrima by sharing your stats with your friends!
Discovery Pact (AR cards required): Use AR cards to summon your character and collect numerous “memories.” These memories are revealed using Mind’s Eye, and can be collected simply by touching them. After one memory has been collected, others become harder to find for a time. Memories can be exchanged for lacrima once collected. I recommend doing this mini-game if you use Black Rites often in the game to undo the price!

Based on community feedback gathered by the Far Cry 3 team, the features added or tweaked by this patch are an on-going effort to respond to players and give them more reasons to re-visit Rook Islands, to improve their skills with tougher challenges, and to re-discover the Far Cry 3 world. These new elements include:

SINGLE PLAYER:

-      Outposts reset: after the end of the game, players can choose to reset the liberated outposts to face the challenge to take them over again

-      A new difficulty setting: Players who have completed the campaign can restart the adventure on MASTER difficulty, with more challenging enemies and dangerous wildlife

MULTIPLAYER:

Map Beta Test: Map makers can now start a beta test to monitor how their map is being played using the new spectate feature and regular players are enabled to provide better feedback to help map makers improve their projects.

-      Maps by author: Players will be able to show all the maps created by an author

-      Idle kick: The feature that kicks out idle players during a MP match is removed from custom and private matches

-      The Skip map voting system has been improved with more visibility and time to cast the vote

-      A new mini-game called The Grid has been added to the Outpost website and smartphone apps.

TomTom yesterday releases its Summer map.  This latest map update includes road changes and Points of Interest (POI) related to major events across Europe this Summer.

New stadiums, temporary and permanent event venues and park & rides across the UK, Poland and the Ukraine are included.  Surrounding areas have been checked and surveyed to ensure complete mapping accuracy around important events.

In total, 1.5 million km of new roads have been added to TomTom’s global map between May 2011 and May 2012.  Major map changes include adding 107,000 km of new road networks in Brazil, and updating 12,000 km of motorways in Spain.  Maps have been extended to cover greater areas of Mexico, Malaysia and Indonesia.  Southern Africa maps now include more unpaved roads in rural areas for better routing and more accurate estimatedtimes of arrival.

“At TomTom, we know how important it is for the maps we provide to our customers to be as accurate as possible and include the latest road network updates,” says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director of TomTom. “Roads are always changing and this Summer is no exception.  TomTom’s latest map update will give the best routes and most accurate directions wherever you are driving.”

TomTom Summer maps are available on all new TomTom devices through the latest map guarantee, or to existing customers through Map Update Service.
