Emanuel Maiberg at

It's going to be hard to say goodbye, but 2K has announced that Sir Hammerlock Versus the son of Crawmerax will be the last piece of DLC for Borderlands 2. Set to release via Steam on April 15, this fifth Headhunter pack will sell for $3.


BioShock Infinite - Burial At Sea: Episode 2 gets a spoilery behind-the-scenes video

Cory Banks at

Ever since Irrational Games announced that its BioShock Infinite downloadable content would take place in Rapture, fans have speculated about how the worlds in the BioShock franchise could be connected. As we get ever closer to the release of Burial At Sea Episode 2, a new, very spoilery video starts to hint at answers—while showing off a whole host of returning characters from both Rapture and Columbia.

Seriously, spoilers ahead. You've been warned.


State of Decay's upcoming Lifeline DLC adds new map, keeps hordes of undead

Patrick Carlson at

Open-world zombie survival sim State of Decay is getting more DLC. But like friendly neighbors in a post-apocalyptic world, details are hard to come by at the moment. What we do know from developer Undead Labs is that the new content carries the name "Lifeline" and will debut a new map.


Latest Humble Bundle discounts Sid Meier's greats like Civ 4 and Railroads

Omri Petitte at

Sid Meier. Sid Meier. Sid Meier. If you say Sid Meier three times, well, he won't exactly pop out of your bathroom mirror, but at least you'll be prepared for seeing the name of one of PC gaming's developer grandmasters festooned across the newest offering from Humble Bundle which focuses on a selection of terrific turn-based strategy titles.


Arma 3's second campaign episode due next month, more content coming next week

Tom Sykes at

Arma 3 is a bit good, as opined in greater detail in our review. But it's also a bit lacking in campaign content, for the time being at least. Thankfully, things will change for the better when the second of the game's three campaign episodes releases next month - on January 21st to be exact. Following on from the first part, 'Survive', Adapt will feature "more open and unorthodox scenarios" and a "much stronger enemy", which must be a nice thing to hear if you've dedicated your life to enemyhood. If you can't wait till January and you want to play with Adapt's new toys now, however, Bohemia have you covered: on December 11th, its new weapons and vehicles will automagically be downloaded to your game folder via Steam. More details below.

Battlefield 4 China Rising DLC, patch out today

Emanuel Maiberg at

Developer DICE today released a patch for Battlefield 4, as well as the China Rising DLC, which it celebrated with another very explody trailer.


Batman: Arkham Origins Initiation DLC sends you to North Korea

Patrick Carlson at

Because it's the Dark Knight, it doesn't surprise me that the latest Batman: Arkham Origins DLC ships you off to a place where "there is no room for your self-righteous Western morality." Well alrighty then. Dubbed "Initiation," the latest DLC is a challenge map pack that pits Bruce Wayne against a series of martial arts obstacles high in the mountains of North Korea.


State of Decay Breakdown released, main game 50% off for the next day or so

Tom Sykes at

Zombie-based zombie-'em-up (featuring zombies) State of Decay has released its first expansion, Breakdown, which unshackles the survival aspects from the story, letting you endlessly plunder the game's world as you see fit. Bleed one instance dry and you'll find yourself in the next, and then the next, with the difficulty upped to make it harder each time. As it was only released yesterday, Breakdown is not taking part in the Steam Autumn Sale, although its main game is - State of Decay is currently half-price for the next day or so.


State of Decay's sandboxy expansion arriving November 29th

Tom Sykes at

Open world zombie survival game State of Decay took its sweet time coming to PC, but you can't say the same about its first chunk of additional content: the long-teased Breakdown DLC. Breakdown will hit a certain last-gen console and past-current-and-future-gen PCs on November 29th, which is when zombies traditionally celebrate the festive period. (They have zombie reindeer and a zombie Santa and everything - it's really quite lovely, actually.) What is in, on, or under Breakdown's bonnet, you ask? Why, a new, pretty-much-endless sandbox mode, along with "new achievements, survivors and weapons". All that and a bag of chips (warning: game might not contain chips) can be yours for $6.99.


BioShock Infinite DLC trailer leaves you with a Big Daddy and a bunch of questions

Patrick Carlson at

With BioShock Infinite it only makes sense to have more questions than answers. Thankfully the launch trailer for the shooter's new DLC—Burial at Sea, Episode One—fills that role nicely. We see the expected, and very stylish, film noir vibe dialed up to 11, but there's also a sense of dread lurking under the surface.


Unity of Command's new DLC takes a Black Turn with 1941 German invasion

Patrick Carlson at

After seeing red it only makes sense to fade to black. Unity of Command is getting a new DLC campaign, Black Turn—Operation Barbarossa 1941, which focuses on German operations on the Eastern front after last year's Soviet-centered Red Turn. Although historical details behind the massive—and notorious—military action are well-known, it looks like the Black Turn's end game allows for a "what if" result.


F1 2013 releases classic cars and tracks as DLC

Patrick Carlson at

When you absolutely, positively must take a ride in a 1996 Michael Schumacher Ferrari, F1 2013 has you covered. Developer Codemasters has released a pair of classic 1990s car and track DLC packs, content that has until recently been locked-up in the standalone Classic Edition of the racing sim.


Saints Row 4 Enter the Dominatrix DLC out today, sexy velociraptors in tow

Perry Vandell at

Way, way back in the summer of 2012, Enter the Dominatrix was destined to be a standalone piece of DLC for Saints Row the Third, hopefully lifting THQ out of its debtors' clutches. However, THQ decided to have Volition scrap Enter the Dominatrix and use the ideas like super powers and alien invasions to make what we know today as Saints Row IV. Now, we can finally see what Volition truly had up its sleeves those 12 long months ago.


Civilization V to get two new map packs, Scrambled Continents out now

Tom Sykes at

Mmm, scrambled continents. Perfect with a bit of black pepper and toast and - oh. I seem to have hilariously gotten the wrong end of the stick. Scrambled Continents is a new map pack for Civ 5, announced and released right now, which randomises the contents of continents each time you start a new game to ensure "endless replayability on countless plausible worlds". They've even gone and thawed Antarctica, giving us an early look at life in the post Global Warming-era.


Assassin's Creed 4 season pass announced, includes new single-player story

Michael Jones at

To absolutely no one's surprise, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will launch with a DLC season pass. Following in the footsteps of 2012's Assassin's Creed 3, and countless other high-profile games, Black Flag will try to preemptively sell you downloadable content right out of the box. And now we know that the single-player portion of the pass will not focus on main character Edward Kenway.


Gearbox has more Borderlands DLC in development, but don't expect as much

Perry Vandell at

If you follow the happenings of Pandora with any form of regularity, chances are you know Gearbox is pumping out Borderlands 2 DLC past what was originally promised (and paid for) in the original Season Pass.


Sanctum 2: Ruins of Brightholme DLC launches with new trailer

Perry Vandell at

Coffee Stain Studios released a teaser trailer for Sanctum 2's latest batch of DLC, and while the video might not have as many cheesy lightning bolts as the previous DLC’s trailer, I suppose raw gameplay footage is an acceptable option as well.


Final Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC, Apocalypse, drops September 26 for PC

Patrick Carlson at

This is what the end looks like. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's final DLC, Apocalypse, comes to PC September 26, marking the final batch of new content for developer Treyarch's latest entry in the venerable shooter series, according to a press release. The DLC includes four multiplayer maps and a new zombie level full of enemies that mix the robotic with the supernatural.


New Saints Row 4 DLC drops presidents, plunger gun on Steelport.

Patrick Carlson at

Feeling presidential today? Or maybe you're more in the mood for a relaxing trip to the country, plunger gun in hand. Saints Row 4 developer Volition dropped two new DLC packs this week, each with its own flamboyant take on wildly different aspects of American culture: historic presidents and hillbilly fashion.


Defiance's debut DLC pack launches with a trailer

Perry Vandell at

Trion Worlds may have shuttered the San Diego studio that made the sci-fi MMO Defiance, but it seems its promise to support Defiance with five pieces of DLC is holding strong with the first DLC release—the Castithan Charge Pack.
