As promised, Titanfall Expedition, the first DLC pack for Titanfall, is coming out this month. As we learned before, Expedition contains three maps, each with their own distinctive style and atmosphere: Swampland, Runoff, and Wargames. Check them out in this new trailer.

If you don’t have the Season Pass, Expedition will cost $9.99. We aren’t sure what the release date is yet, however. We’ll keep you updated.

Players Will Vote on Sunset Overdrive’s Post-Game Content

The information floodgates are definitely open when it comes to Sunset Overdrive. We still don’t know what the frame rate and resolution will be (despite many rumors which were refuted by Community and Marketing Lead James Stevenson), but many more details have been revealed, including the game’s interesting approach to DLC.

DLC, or “post-launch content” as Creative Director Marcus Smith calls it, will involve you. Instead of Insomniac just deciding what type of content to release, fans will vote on it to give their opinion of what they do and don’t want to see. With frequent updates thanks to the Xbox One, new ideas can be readily implemented.

That’s pretty cool, and if you have any thoughts on what you’ve seen of Sunset Overdrive so far, feel free to share them with Insomniac, because Stevenson says fan feedback is important as they tweak aspects of the game.

So, what else can we expect from Sunset Overdrive? A lot of weapons and a lot of references. Microsoft has gone so far as to say “If you’re fan of anything, you’ll find something to love about ‘Sunset Overdrive.'” And as for the weapons…

Keeping in mind that Sunset Overdrive operates on the principle that “fun trumps realism,” this could be quite an exciting ride.

First Titanfall DLC Pack Coming in May

April 13, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

titanfall

We’ve got good news for all you Titanfall players! The first DLC pack is on its way. Respawn revealed new details about it at PAX East, including its name: Titanfall Expedition.

Expedition will contain three new maps, set after the main game, although there is no new campaign for the DLC. The three maps are called Swampland, Runoff, and Wargames. Swampland features trees, zipvines, and what appear to be ancient alien ruins, Runoff features water and pipes, and Wargames is (as the name would suggest) similar to the training simulator you used at the start of Titanfall.

Some free DLC is also on its way. You’ll be able to play a new mode called Wingman LTS, which is similar to Last Titan Standing except with four players (2 against 2), and get new Burn Cards. Respawn also plans to try out new modes and implement the most popular ones.

Titanfall Expedition is coming in May, but we aren’t sure if the free DLC is also coming in May or not, as it’s a separate project. Either way, there’s plenty of new Titanfall content on its way.

Respawn revealed some other details at PAX East, too. Did you know Titanfall was almost a single player game? One prototype was even a single player stealth game, which is pretty far from the final product. If you pick up the Final Hours of Titanfall app, you’ll even be able to see some of the single player footage.

What additions would you like to see in Titanfall’s future?

New Modes Coming to Titanfall for Free

March 25, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

A few days ago, Respawn’s Vince Zampella tweeted a message saying that new game modes would eventually come to Titanfall. This caused both excitement and consternation among fans. Excitement because, well, new Titanfall modes! Some players were concerned, though, that the new modes would be a part of paid DLC, which would result in only part of the community playing them.

Well, there’s no need to worry about that. Today, Zampella clarified that the additional modes will be free.

He also announced that there will be Double XP weekends and that the first DLC is still being worked on.

New modes, Double XP, and DLC content–which are you looking forward to the most?

2015 for MGS V: The Phantom Pain?

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will first appear in stores tomorrow, March 18. It functions as a prologue to the upcoming MGS V: The Phantom Pain, which fans are very excited for. We still don’t have a release date for The Phantom Pain, but Konami’s site hints that it might be sometime in early 2015.

Preorders of Ground Zeroes come with bonus content for The Phantom Pain’s Mother Base feature. Reddit user Hitzkolpf discovered that if you register the code for the bonus content with Konami, the following message is displayed:

MGS V release day hint

So the registered DLC will be available in “Early 2015”? That’s a pretty good indication of when we’ll see The Phantom Pain. Of course, it isn’t an official announcement, and plans could change. We’ll keep you updated.

Are you looking forward to Ground Zeroes and/or The Phantom Pain?

Here There Be Monsters: Plans for Titanfall’s DLC

March 16, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Titanfall Leviathan monster

There’s no doubt that Titanfall is a huge hit. It’s received high reviews, praise from players, and all-around success.

If you’re enjoying Titanfall and looking forward to the DLC, this new information should interest you. Community Manager Abbie Heppe told IGN some of Respawn’s plans for the upcoming content.

The official Titanfall art book shows a lot of cool ideas that didn’t make it into the main game, including new environments and monsters. Heppe said the DLC will include additional maps, and the monsters will definitely be under consideration. On the other hand, the Atlas, Ogre, and Stryder Titans are probably the only Titans you’ll be able to play as in the foreseeable future, due to the game’s balance.

Unsurprisingly, IGN asked Heppe if there was any chance of future Titanfall games coming to Sony’s consoles, but all she said was that their exclusivity deal doesn’t include “console exclusivity for any of the future things [they] do.”

A very safe answer, that, which is exactly what we expected.

It would be great to see monsters make an appearance on one of the maps—a third faction on the battlefield always makes things interesting. What sorts of things would you like to see in Titanfall’s DLC?

Titanfall’s DLC Plans

March 9, 2014 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

Fans reacted with mixed feelings to the knowledge that there will be a Season Pass for Titanfall, but whether you plan to buy it or not, you might still be interested in knowing what the plans are for its DLC.

According to GameStop’s Titanfall page, the three DLC packs, which are titled “Drop Pods,” will each cost $9.99. The first is set to release this Spring, followed by one this Summer, and then the final one in the Fall.

If you buy the Season Pass, you will save about $5 versus buying each pack individually.

Titanfall is just a few days away from landing on the Xbox One and PC, with the Xbox 360 version coming a week after that. Are you excited?

Next Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Coming in April, New Weapon Available Now

by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

If you’re a fan of Call of Duty: Ghosts, we have good news. The next DLC pack, Devastation, will become available in April. Xbox users will be able to download it on April 3, and it will arrive later for the other platforms.

Devastation includes four new maps to enjoy in multiplayer, Ruins, Behemoth, Collision, and Unearthed. That last one in particular might catch your attention, because Unearthed is based on Modern Warfare 3’s Dome map.

It also includes a new weapon, the Ripper, which is both a submachine gun and an assault rifle. You can switch between them at will. Best of all, if you are an Xbox user with the Season Pass, you can start using the Ripper now. The Ripper will become available for other Season Pass owners before the DLC is released.

Finally, you’ll get access to the second episode of Extinction, which introduces new enemies called the Seeders and the Kraken, and adds new weapon mods.

Devastation will cost $14.99 for players who don’t own the Season Pass. This is the second of four planned DLC packs. Check out the new trailer and let us know your thoughts.

Titanfall Will Have a Season Pass

March 5, 2014 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

titanfall-screen

There was some confusion recently over whether or not Titanfall would have a season pass for its DLC, but now we’ve got the official answer for you: yes, it will.

Respawn’s Vince Zampella said Titanfall will have both free updates and paid DLC. The season pass is there so players can get a deal on future DLC content, as it will cost $24.99 and grant players access to three DLC packs, each of which will cost around $10 if bought individually.

If you are going to play Titanfall on the PC, you can pick up the Digital Deluxe version of the game from Origin for $79.99. It includes the season pass. All other gamers will have to wait until Titanfall launches to buy their season pass.

The DLC will not be cross-platform. For example, if you buy a DLC pack on the Xbox One, you won’t be able to access it on the Xbox 360, and vice versa.

Zampella could not confirm whether or not the Xbox 360 will receive all the same upgrades, patches, etc. as the PC and Xbox One versions, although he thinks it will.

As we mentioned when the question first came up, players are divided on whether or not season passes are a good thing. How do you feel? Weigh in on the debate in the comments below—but try not to argue too much.

Details About Next Killzone: Shadow Fall DLC

by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

killzone-1

If you’ve been enjoying Killzone: Shadow Fall, we’re pleased to report that the new expansion pack has been announced.

The Insurgent Pack will bring a variety of new features to Shadow Fall’s multiplayer, as well as a personalization pack containing 1 OWL skin, 3 spotlight moves, and 1 voice over pack.

It includes a new character class, the Insurgent. This character begins with only a pistol, but his Steal ability allows him to claim both weapons and abilities from defeated enemies. His second ability is called Hack, with which he can hack into enemy automata and turn them to his side.

The Scout, Support, and Assault classes will also gain three new abilities: the E-Pulse emitter, which makes it harder for enemies to place automata in a particular area, the Tactical Echo emitter, which makes it harder for hidden enemies to sneak into a particular area, and the Guard Drone, which will guard ground-based areas.

Three new weapons will also be added: the M82 assault rifle from Killzone 2 and 3, the L512 SMG Pistol, and the Sta14 Rifle, a new sniper rifle.

With this expansion, you will be able to fight your way through Elite Mode difficulty in Single Player and gather collectibles in the online Collectibles Mode. And of course, there are new Challenges and Trophies.

If you have the Season Pass, you’ll be able to pick up the Insurgent Pack for free when it releases in April. Otherwise, you can buy it for $9.99 or €9.99.

While you wait for April to come, you can download the first two Shadow Fall DLC maps, the Cruiser and the Hangar, for free. And don’t forget that all players, regardless of whether you have PS+ or Killzone: Shadow Fall, can try out the multiplayer for free this week.

Finally, Amazon has Shadow Fall on sale for $39.99 until March 11, so if you like what you see, check it out.
