Infinity Ward and crew are kicking off the new Content Season of Modern Warfare 3 later this month with two new multiplayer and Survival Mode maps for Call of Duty Elite members. Xbox Live members who subscribe to Elite will be able to download Liberation and Piazza on January 24, the first of at least 20 “content drops” for the ongoing nine-month-long season. Elite members playing on other platforms will be able to download the maps “at a later time.”
Players eager to jump back into the universe of Final Fantasy XIII can get a sample of what Final Fantasy XIII-2 has in store for them with a new demo that launched today for the 360 and PS3. Set in the Bresha Ruins, the demo sees Serah and newcomer Noel tracking down a mysterious new enemy known as Atlas. The trial also offers the chance for players to try out the Paradigm Pack System, a new feature that allows for defeated enemies to be recruited as party members.
The Ghost Recon series will be returning from its hiatus this May when Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier launches on the 22 for the 360 and PS3. Unfortunately, PC gamers will have to wait a bit longer; currently, the only release info is that it will be available “at a later date.” Console gamers, however, can look forward to getting in on the action even earlier with a multiplayer beta that is set to kick off in April.
A new demo for Capcom’s upcoming action title Asura’s Wrath has launched on PS Network, and 360 gamers can look forward to giving it a go tomorrow when it hits Live Marketplace. The demo offers a taste of the game’s “blend of action and cinematic sequences” with two episodes, which includes a boss battle with Wyzen, said to be the size of a planet, and Augus, Asura’s old mentor.
Square Enix has released Final Fantasy Origins on the PS Network. The $9.99 PSOne Classic is a bundle pack that includes both Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II. Of course, they have been touched-up some, with updated visuals, remixed soundtracks, and a few cutscenes added for good measure.
