Fallout 4 DLC Details Announced
The three expansions will be released monthly, starting next month, and are titled: Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor. Priced at £8, £4, and £20 respectively, full details of these expansions can be found here. Bethesda has stated that Far Harbor will be the largest landmass for any DLC they have ever created. The Maryland publisher also confirmed that more DLC will be revealed throughout the year, totalling £50 worth of content. In light of this additional DLC vision, it was announced that the season pass will increase in price, from £25 to £40, with effect from March 1st. Therefore, if you are excited to play more Fallout 4, you may wish to pick up the season pass now, which Bethesda has confirmed will still get you all the planned content!
We have talked many times about VR already this year, but the latest report is that PlayStation VR may not be arriving as soon as we would like. In a recent interview with Fox News, GameStop CEO Paul Raines shared the company’s plans for the upcoming launches:
“We are right now preparing for the launches of the major VR products. We’re in discussions with Oculus, HTC, and Sony… It’s a big launch, we’re getting ready for it. We will launch the Sony product this fall and we are in discussions with the other two players.”
So there we go, it appears that Sony‘s VR headset has been delayed from its previous Summer release. While this is a disappointment for fans who are keen to get their hands on the device, I personally think that Sony need to wait until they have a strong launch line-up. PlayStation VR will live and die by the strength of its game library, so if we have to wait another three months to ensure the line-up is a little better then so be it!
In their latest earning report Activision revealed that not all of their games have been a success. It was reported that both Guitar Hero Live and Skylander SuperChargers “performed weaker than expected,” which Activision attribute to the fact that “the casual audience has not yet emerged on next-gen consoles.” As a result of these failings, Activision unfortunately has had to lay off some staff in order to “better align” their “long-term priorities.” I’m not sure what exactly the projections were for Guitar Hero Live, but it is disappointing to hear that it didn’t perform well as I really enjoyed that game. I wish the affected people all the best and hope they find themselves new employment.
Dark Souls III launches in under two months, and Xbox One owners will be able to warm up for FromSoftware‘s ultra hard action-RPG, thanks to backwards compatibility. The original Dark Souls will be coming to the backwards compatibility program, and will even be free “for a limited time” to those who digitally pre-order Dark Souls III. The upcoming entry in the Souls series is expected to wrap up the events of the saga, according to series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki. I have never been one for playing a Souls game, mainly because I know I would suck!
The final news item for today is another update for Far Cry: Primal. The latest game in the Far Cry franchise releases next week, and a new trailer, which you can see below, has been released to show off the Legend of Mammoth missions. These missions are exclusively for individuals who have pre-ordered the game and let you take control of a woolly mammoth in first person. I think I can safely say that there is no other video game that gives you this experience, and the three missions allow you to “use your immense strength to fight for your herd’s survival.” I can’t wait to see how this game holds up, and we will be sure to bring you a Let’s Play of the game asap.
