The Dark Lord’s appetite for the souls of the virtuous could not be satiated with mere map packs and trifling DLC. No, he demands more, much more: a sequel. This September, he will get his chance to feast once more when Kalypso publishes Realmforge’s Dungeons – The Dark Lord. Sequel to Dungeons, The Dark Lord will include a new single-player campaign, a new dungeon type, 25 “prestige gimmicks,” four-player multiplayer with three modes, new skill sets for multiplayer, and the chance to play as bosses in multiplayer.
Section 8: Prejudice has officially been dated and will launch on PSN later this month, on July 26. The download-only, squad-based first-person shooter, recently released for the 360 and PC, will be available for $14.99. In addition to the game, PS3 gamers will purchase during the release week will also receive the Blitz Armor Pack and Overdrive Map Pack for free. The packs contain two armor skins, early unlocks, and two additional multiplayer maps. PlayStation Plus subscribers get an extra unlock and an early bird bonus: the exclusive in-game Hunter Armor, and for the first 1,000 subscribers to purchase, a free copy of the original Section 8.
Activision’s “digital community platform” for Call of Duty, Call of Duty Elite, has entered closed beta. The service began its staged launch today on the 360 and Live via Black Ops. This is the first of several phases as services are rolled out, with a limited number of invitations set to be sent out in the next few weeks. The official launch won’t take place until the release of Modern Warfare 3 on November 8, at which points participants will be able to access the service at any time through their mobile or tablet device, the web, and inside the games. Members will be able to schedule matches and change load outs on the go, as well as have access to “entertainment programs” and all DLC for Modern Warfare 3.
Soldak’s got a hearty pat on the back and a new patch for their resilient action-RPG Depths of Peril. Patch 1.018, now available at the official site’s patch section, fixes a crash when trying to access invalid resources. For those who haven’t updated recently, 1.017 fixed a cursor/selection issue while 1.016 tackled a myriad of problems and even added a few features—advanced shadow options added, saving is now safer, nearby gold is now collected automatically, etc.
