Ubisoft has announced that Escape from Durgesh Prison, a new piece of downloadable content for Far Cry 4, will be released in Australia and New Zealand on January 14, 2015 on Xbox Live (XBL) & for PC and January 15th on PlayStation Network (PSN). In this challenging time trial players will race against the clock and other players for a spot atop the leader boards.

Escape from Durgesh Prison:

Ajay and Hurk wake up after being captured, tortured and stripped of their weapons in Yuma’s prison. Thrown in the dangerous world of Kyrat without anything to defend themselves with, players will complete a series of challenges to find weapons and unlock new skills while trying to reach the extraction point to safety.

Playable in single player and coop, this DLC will keep players running across Kyrat to complete side objectives dictated by Pagan Min to recover their lost weapons and upgrade their gear before a final stand-off with Yuma’s forces.

To ramp up the challenge, when players die they must start the mission over again and use the knowledge and skills they gained during their previous run through to help them reach their extraction point successfully.

 

Escape from Durgesh Prison is available as part of the Far Cry 4 Season Pass or can be purchased separately. 

The other DLC for Far Cry 4 includes:

·         The Syringe – Already available exclusively for Season Pass holders, players must keep a rare and potent recipe from falling into the hands of Pagan Min’s forces. Playable in single-player and co-op, players will need to ensure that he does not use its devastating effects on the rebel forces.

·         Escape from Durgesh Prison – Available on January 14th 2015: The player and a fellow captive have been rounded up and tortured in Yuma’s prison. He will have to escape from the prison and survive the hostile lands of Pagan Min’s Kyrat.

·         Hurk Deluxe Pack – Five missions, playable in single-player and co-op, including Yak Farm, Blood Ruby and Hurk’s Redemption are available. Access an arsenal of new weapons including a harpoon gun for Hurk.

·         Overrun – Team up as Rakshasa or Golden Path in this PvP mode and control a series of neutral locations across Kyrat’s countryside to protect them from being overrun by your opponents.

·         Valley of the Yetis – Ajay’s helicopter has crashed on an unforgiving Himalayan ridge. Explore the frozen landscape and find tools to upgrade your camp and protect it from a dangerous cult when night falls. With single-player and co-op options, players will not be alone, but in the darkest caves players will have more to fear than the cult as the yetis await their prey…

After controversy over more recent games embargo dates, Techland have said in a statement that Dying Light will be as transparent as possible.

Along with this Maciej Binkowski revealed that a demo for Dying Light is highly unlikely therefore the best way to get some early thoughts on the game is to read the games reviews.

Some other notable announcements from the ASK.FM session: (Questions in bold)

 

I know its a little early for talking about reviews, but a few games recently have been making the review embargos AFTER the release of the game, which is shady to say the least, will DLs review embargo be before the release date?

[updated]
No, we do not have embargoes of that nature. We want to be as transparent as we can towards our fans, so don’t worry – there won’t be any review embargoes AFTER the game is released. 

Sorry I made a mistake. It was supposed to say “after the game is release” right from the start.

 

Are there collectables spread out the game world? I can imagine things getting stale after a while, i’m worried there won’t be enough to do in the game :x

Yes there are collectibles. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of stuff to keep you occupied for looong hours.

Are there different stages of pursuit? Like in “Need for Speed – Most Wanted (the first). Because the red points next to the minimap looks like they mark how hard you are hunted.

You noticed! That’s awesome! Yes these red boxes are exactly that.

Why did you guys cut off some features? Couldn’t you delay the game for another couple of months?

It’s very easy to end up in a feature creep. This is very dangerous.
Game is never perfect and you always find stuff to improve.
At some point you have to say stop to yourself and just deliver a product.
Dying Light is released January 27th 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Evil Within’s DLC has just been revealed and, ‘The Keeper’ will star Sebastian Castellanos’s partner Juli Kidman as she fights through the hordes of Haunted all in the name of a corporation called Mobius.

The games director  John Johanas said in a statement that Kidman will have a largely different play style compared to Sebastian.

“I would say she’s much livelier than Sebastian was in the main game.” “Her story is a bit more personal than his as well, so there’s a bit of banter and commentary as you play.” he continued.

It has also been revealed that the second part of the DLC will be called ‘The Consequence’ whilst the third and final DLC has still not been named but will allow you to play as The Keeper AKA Box Head.

You can get all three DLCs through the season pass that will cost $20 but the individual pricing has yet to be revealed.

There’s Still More Captain Toad to Comehttp://www.nonfictiongaming.com/2014/12/theres-still-captain-toad-come/ http://www.nonfictiongaming.com/2014/12/theres-still-captain-toad-come/#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 01:31:57 +0000 http://www.nonfictiongaming.com/?p=16314 Nintendo's answer to Despicable Me's Minions, Captain Toad is starring in his own game and doesn't look to be stopping there.





The post There’s Still More Captain Toad to Come appeared first on Non-Fiction Gaming.

Captain Toad is fast becoming Nintendo’s answer to the Despicable Me Minions and Rayman’s Rabbids.

 

Captain Toad and his brigade have been a part of Nintendo’s universe since Super Mario Galaxy back on the Wii. Generally his role was similar to Toad’s in Super Mario 64: hang out, get in trouble, complain, and periodically throw stars at you. Pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.

This intrepid captain then became a playable character in a series of equally pointless minigames in last year’s Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U. I say pointless but they were somewhat charming. Basically, these involved moving Captian Toad around the level, rotating the camera to see different perspectives and solve the puzzles.

Barely a year after this, the captain was made the star of his own game: Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker. A game that Japan got in November, America’s been playing it for about a week now but for which us in Australia will be waiting until January. From all accounts, this is an expanded version of the minigames we played last year.

For anyone who was hoping that this would be the last time we see the captain of the Toads, I’m afraid you’re going to have to think again. At this point it’s looking like Nintendo are going to look for ways to bring Captain Toad towards the front of their game library. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing is tough to say.

 

cttt 3

 

My stance on Captain Toad’s upcoming ubiquity is that Nintendo is going to cram another terrible joke down our throats like they did with the Mii. I’ll concede that being able to play as yourself in Wii Sports is pretty cool and a great way to ingratiate the game with family members and non-gamer friends. Taking up character slots in games where roster space is at a premium, such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros, with Mii is just inane. Mario already plays the part of the middle-of-the-road all-rounder.

 

cttt 5

 

Something with such a homely start, like Captain Toad, has spiralled out of control and Nintendo won’t let us forget it. I worry that the captain is going to go the same way and, in two or three years time, we’ll be fighting as Captain Toad in the next instalment of Smash Bros or seeing a crossover into Hyrule Warriors.

Conversely, though, Captain Toad is probably Nintendo’s greatest weapon to bring young gamers into the fold in recent times. His trademark gameplay is simple with plenty of room for variety and there’s a real cutesy charm to the art direction. Captain Toad may also be Nintendo’s way to crack into the mobile game market as the diorama puzzle genre lends itself to a smart phone.

 

Captain Toad

 

While I wait for Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker to hit Australian shores, I sit in anxious uncertainty about the quality of the game. If it’s good, this prophecy of impending prolificacy may not be the worst thing in the world. I can put up with it if the gameplay is of a sufficient quality. If, however, it’s a rehash of the same levels found in Super Mario 3D World, it’s not looking good for Captain Toad’s reappearance.

Alien Isolation

In response to many people telling them that their game is either too hard or too easy Creative Assembly have decided to add 2 new difficulty modes in the newest update for Alien Isolation.

Alien Isolation now has a Nightmare mode which will pit you against a smarter and faster Xenemorph more durable androids, and no HUD meaning you will never know how long your flashlight has left or how much health you have after a close encounter.

However like many of us you thought the game was already hard enough the novice mode may be a better option. This makes the Xenemorph a lot less adaptive making it a lot easier to hide from or deter, it also give Amanda a lot more health making the encounter with other humans and androids a little less intense.
