The PS4 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has received the Variety Map Pack. The drop include four maps plus 10 supply drops.

Bungie’s final livestream event for the last round of content for Destiny has been scheduled for this Wednesday, March 22. Beginning at noon, the studio’s Twitch channel will host 3D character artist Ian McIntosh and senior gameplay designer Josh Hamrick for the Sandbox Update livestream. Players don’t have long to wait now, as Age of Triumph is scheduled to go live on March 28.
After last week’s 14-minute-long gameplay trailer, The Surge is getting the CG treatment. Deck13’s action role-playing game is set to go live in May, and the latest video, titled Stronger, Faster, Tougher, features gory combat in scripted encounters set throughout the CREO complex.
Atlus will be gifting a controller skin for those picking up the standard edition of Persona 5. In addition to the Take Your Heart Premium and SteelBook editions, the regular release will come with a themed DualShock 4 skin that features a couple of The Phantom Thieves. Note that only marked copies of the PS4 version will include the skin. Ann Takamaki’s voice actor Erika Harlacher was also on hand at Atlus HQ to offer a proper reveal of the bonus.
The aliens that have overrun Talos I are featured in a new trailer for Prey. The instructive video, titled Typhon Research, comes from the owners of the station, TranStar Corporation. The business opened their vaults to the Typhon Research Team’s work in order to help the sole survivor, Morgan Yu, save the station. Footage demonstrates the mimic’s ability to take the form of inanimate objects, the phantom’s power to summon and launch projectiles, and the telepath’s control over weaker organisms.
Sony has sent word that Guerrilla’s latest open-world action title of Horizon Zero Dawn has sold over 2.6 million units in stores and online. The title has been out for two weeks, allowing players to explore a ruin-filled world as the young hunter Aloy, which represents a departure for the studio, known for their first-person shooter series Killzone. The release also notes that it is “the best-selling new first party IP launch on the PS4 system to date” as well the developer’s highest debut.
Mask of Deception’s protagonist is highlighted in a new trailer. He’s an unlucky amnesiac who finds himself in a strange world filled with beastlike denizens and dangerous monsters. A friendly local, Kuon, names him Haku, and that’s about all he knows. Unfortunately, he quickly finds himself caught between Uzurusha and the Empire of Yamato, and being a bit weak, must rely on his wits to survive. He’ll be getting some help on May 23, though, with the announcement that two downloadable characters will join the fight: the sword-wielding Tamaki and spear-toting Sasara. Costume sets for each will also go live, Samurai and Swimsuit, for $2.99 apiece or $8.99 for all four.
Raven is getting into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit with a new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. The promo is currently ongoing and features a free themed map, Daybreak, a modified version of Downpour, which also has in-game challenges to earn the holiday-styled weapon camo Folium. Players also receive a free weekly Supply Drop by logging in. Other themed goodies include calling cards, camos, emblems, reticles, and an unlockable playable character, Darren “Graves” Cosgrave. The event, further detailed on Activision’s blog, will end at 2:00 p.m. (CST) on April 3.
NIS has released Danganronpa 1•2 Reload for PS4. The bundle includes the visual novels Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, previously exclusive to PS Vita. Both titles require that players work out who among their classmates is the killer after each gruesome murder during life-or-death trials, as the class slowly shrinks one by one. Guiding the proceedings is Monokuma, an insane bear who serves as judge and executioner.
