  • When starting New Game Plus you can select any difficulty level.
  • You can obtain the Death Match achievement when playing the NG+ mode.
  • What’s the starting level of the character when beginning NG+? The same that you had when finishing the game, if above 30, otherwise you start at 30. You also get a free Clearing Potion at the start so you can reset your skills and try a different build.

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare-137655

The fourth and final DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been revealed by Activision today. Releasing first for Xbox 360 and Xbox One on August 4th, the Reckoning pack will include 4 brand new multiplayer maps and the final episode for the EXO Zombies game mode.

Official Reckoning pack info:

  • Overload – Enjoy the grand view of downtown New Baghdad from this exotic compound, complete with fountains, gardens and decorative plasma lamps. The map’s multiple levels and long perimeter site-lines highlight medium to long-range combat, and firing a shot at the lamps will send enemies flying in a burst of energy.
  • Quarantine – Following a deadly viral outbreak, the island has been converted into a biological testing center. This medium sized map’s tight corners dial up the speed and open areas combine to allow for any style of gameplay. Activate the map-based scorestreak to unleash a devastating ship-fired missile strike.
  • Fracture – Discover what secrets are locked in the ice in this arctic excavation site. Take refuge behind wind turbines and heavy equipment through large combat areas cradled on the shelf of a glacier. Stay alert as the timed event cracks the ice sheet, sending one lane sinking to the depths.
  • Swarm – Reconstruction is underway in Seoul, South Korea, congesting narrow corridors of this small to medium sized map with vehicles and equipment. Take position in war-scarred storefronts that provide plenty of cover over the streets or flank the enemy through close quarter interiors in the center of the map.
  • Descent (Exo Zombies) – In the last episode, the team – Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street) and new member Bruce Campbell(Army of Darkness, Burn Notice), are about to escape from the Atlas aircraft carrier on which they’ve been stranded. But before they do, they discover their friend and original squad member, John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), has been turned, and is now among the undead. Descent introduces a remote ocean Atlas survival facility, new “fused” exo zombie enemies, and the Trident Reflected Energy Weapon.

Street Fighter V to Feature 16 Characters at Launch; Future Characters can be Earned in Game

RyuvsChun

Capcom has revealed several new details for Street Fighter V. One of the biggest things announced, is the publisher’s new approach to releasing post-launch content:

  1. The initial release is the only disc you will ever need to own
  2. All balance and system adjustments will be available for free
  3. All post-launch gameplay related content will be earnable for free by playing the game

Capcom stresses that all game related content that they put out for Street Fighter V, will be free.

“Long gone are the days of forced Super and Ultra upgrades! Enjoy free balance updates as soon as they become available, and find and choose the post-launch characters that you want to get.”

Cammy

The base game will launch with 16 playable characters, 4 of them will be brand new to the Street Fighter universe. Capcom plans to add new characters to the game’s roster “on a continuous basis”, but will implement a new service-based model, so players are no longer forced to purchase an upgraded version with characters they don’t want.

“Looking back on the Street Fighter IV series, we had always released bundles of content all at once, like with Super Street Fighter IV and Ultra Street Fighter IV. While these one-time updates did revive interest in the series every few years, it was difficult to keep players engaged for long periods of time unless they were competitive. This also punished players who took a break from playing the game, because if they wanted to start again in a few years, they would be forced to purchase an upgrade to join the existing player pool who had already moved on to a new version. On top of that, this old method also forced players to purchase all of the new content, even if only a few characters may have appealed to them.”

Street Fighter V will feature an in-game economy system that will contain two types of currency:

Fight Money

  • This is basic currency that players earn through playing the game. Once players accumulate enough Fight Money, they can use it to earn new post-launch gameplay content, such as characters, for free!

Zenny

  • This is premium currency that players can purchase with real money to immediately gain access to post-launch content.

Capcom is determined to avoid splitting the game’s player base in two and hopes to create more long-term interest.

“Players also have more freedom in their decisions, as they only need to purchase or earn the content that appeals to them. This will also create more long-term engagement, because the more you play the game, the more you are rewarded and can earn new content. The player base is never shrunk by requiring a paid update like in years past. Players can take a break from the game, but then come back at any time and continue to play with the characters they already own, with the newest gameplay balance.”

Players will get a chance to test out this economy system in the later phases of Street Fighter V’s Beta. The first phase (PS4 only for now) will begin on July 23. Pre-ordering the game is the only way to gain access.

The Evil Within: The Executioner DLC Review

The-Evil-Within-The-Executioner-pc

In the final DLC of The Evil Within titled, The Executioner, surviving STEM takes a turn for the better. Enemies that once inspired fear received an unimpressed grunt before meeting their doom at the end of a massive spiked hammer. Areas that conjured dread at the notion of exploring were now comfortable and cozy. Playing as The Keeper made it all feel like home.

The Executioner, takes place after the main game when a father willingly enters STEM under the observation of Mobius, with the hopes of finding and freeing his daughter previously trapped there by Ruvik. In doing so, he must dispatch the other occupants to end their influence over the girl before the damage done to her mind is irreparable.

Playing as the over powered Keeper made for swift work when dealing with regular haunted. The bosses however, needed a bit more than the swing of the mighty hammer. Referred to as “subjects”, these foes were the level bosses from the main game and as such required a bit more creativity to beat. Such as using environmental traps.

the-evil-within-the-executioner-dlc-pc-screenshot-www.ovagames.com-2

Upon defeating each subject, the weapons specific to them becomes available for purchase with the Keeper Coins collected from downed haunted. The store also features an upgrade system where you can strengthen your weapons, lessen damage dealt by enemies, quicken your walking pace etc. To gain extra Keeper Coins there is the option of completing several arenas, where the Keeper is tasked with multiple foes at once. After  completion, two additional arenas are unlocked. One of them featuring a face off with Sebastian Castellanos, as well as New Game +.

Final Verdict:

Overall, the experience of The Executioner was pleasant. It wasn’t very challenging, but playing as one of the stronger characters in the game makes that somewhat inevitable. It was nice however, to give the Keeper a touch of humanity and redemption with his goal being so selfless. The first person view had smooth controls and wasn’t a hindrance at all, giving instead new angles on the gore and havoc wrought by a distraught father in search of his child.
