Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’s debut free update for Year 2, Operation Velvet Shell, is set to go live tomorrow for Season Pass holders. Non-holders can download it on February 14. Console and PC players will be able to access a new map, Coastline, located on the seashore of Ibiza, as two new Spanish operators from the Grupo Especial de Operaciones: Mira and Jackal. Mira is armed with the Vector 45 ACP and ITA12L and specializes in ballistics protection, allowing her to detect weak spots on machinery to reinforce it. Jackal can quickly spot irregularities and totes a C7E and a PDW9.
Titanfall 2 players can get a look at the upcoming Live Fire mode in a new trailer. The footage debuts the speedy, close-combat-centric six-versus-six Pilot mode. It will be bundled along with two new maps, Stacks and Meadow, as a free download.
Following yesterday’s launch trailer reveal, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Sabotage has been released for PS4. Sabotage adds four new multiplayer maps, one of which is a remake of Modern Warfare 2’s Afghan, along with a ‘90s-themed Zombies episode. The latter will find players stuck at an abandoned lakeside summer camp in Rave in the Redwoods. Details for the new maps can be found below.
Activision has released a new trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s upcoming downloadable pack, Sabotage. As a heads up, the drop debuts tomorrow on PSN for PS4. Players will gain access to four maps, Neon, Noir, Renaissance, and a remake of the Modern Warfare 2 map Afghan, Dominion. Zombies is also receiving a ‘90s-themed addition, Rave in the Redwoods, with director Willard Wyler recasting the original crew in new roles.
PC and Xbox One players will be able to take to the skies alongside PS4 owners in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The game was originally announced last year for PS4. The upcoming entry will feature support for PS VR, futuristic weapons, and a story by Sunao Katabuchi, the author behind Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies and Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.
The upcoming re-imagined version of Prey is set to be released on May 5 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Gamers who pre-order will receive several digital extras at launch in the Cosmonaut Shotgun Pack. The set will include the family heirloom Margrave shotgun along with several tools: three neuromods to acquire new abilities, two medkits, a Fabrication plan to create the shotgun and ammo, a starter kit for building tools and weapons, and a upgrade to help preserve resources. Developed by Dishonored creator Arkane Studios, the new version finds players waking up in 2032 on the space station Talos I. Not only have aliens invaded the facilities, but players have been the subject of strange experiments and have no memory of recent events.
It’s time to hit the streets of Kamurocho and Sotenbori with the release of Yakuza 0. The action-adventure thriller lays down the groundwork for an upcoming remake of the original this summer and Yakuza 6 early next year. The prequel, set in 1988, follows a young Kazuma Kiryu on a quest to beat a murder wrap and fellow brawler Goro Majima as he attempts to earn his way back into the underworld. In addition to playing through the story, players also get to run a real estate company, battle endless thugs in the street, practice at batting cages, race model cars, go on dates, try their hand at bowling, and hit the arcades for some OutRun.
Arkane Studios has released the second free update for Dishonored 2. The latest download adds two new features: Custom Difficulty Settings and Mission Select. The former adds over 20 sliders for players to customize their game, adjusting everything from the number of enemies who will attack simultaneously to the speed of sleep darts. It will also add Iron Mode, which features permadeath and no manual saves. Mission Select allows for any mission to be unlocked once played, with the player’s status retained from the playthrough. The patch is available for all versions.
The final downloadable pack has been announced for Dark Souls III. In The Ringed City, players will be seeking out the Slave Knight Gael in search of the Dark Soul of Humanity. Their quest will take them to the Ringed City, where “they will encounter ancient beasts, a new cast of characters teetering on the edge of insanity, new armor, weapons, magic, and at the bottom of it all, a long lost city filled with new horrors for players to overcome.” Check below to find the announcement trailer.
