Respawn Entertainment aren’t done with Titanfall just yet and have just dropped some great news about it’s first major multiplayer game.
Titanfall will be receiving another update (#8) and it’s one of the biggest ones to hit the game to date, containing several new game modes, new enemies and it’ll be available to download tomorrow, 23rd October 2014.
The most notable feature of this update is a game mode called ‘Frontier Defense‘ which is a horde-like mode where a four player co-op team try to defend a certain place on the map from a range of different enemies. This mode brings with it several new Ai types such as mortar and sniper teams, as well as changing the general behavior of the enemies, hopefully making it a challenging and enjoyable experience for all. Frontier Defense will be playable on all 24 multiplayer maps.
If that doesn’t make you crave Titanfall again, several other new modes will be included in this update such as Marked for Death Pro which challenges players to eliminate a single VIP on the other team while Deadly Ground forces players to battle across rooftops as the entire ground is covered in a lethal electric cloud (think: floor is lava).
Oh, and the achievement hunters of the Xbox One will be pleased to hear that 17 new achievements will also be making an appearance with this update, revolving around these new modes, increasing the overall amount available from Titanfall to 2,000 points.
The full patch notes and details for Titanfall Update 8 are available on the official site, there is tonnes there!
It should come as no shock considering the white Xbox One console, the massive presence at recent events and the constant plugs with Fizzie and more, but today both Microsoft and Insomniac Games have announced the “Sunset Overdrive” Season Pass. It has been described to be packed with exclusive content including the first three complete Game Add-ons as well as six character outfits, two Amps and two Traps available exclusively to Season Pass purchasers as soon as the game is released on October 31st 2014.
The aim of the game seems to be about survival elements in the most insane fashion applicable. It was like a version of Dead Rising on drugs, but presented as a characteristic cartoon with amazing art direction. As much as your eyes are looking out for enemies, you are just wowed by the level of detail and colourful characters that parade around for dear life. The concept of the story appears somewhat sadistic and disconsolate, yet the action packed gameplay leaves you wanting more. Sunset Overdrive is certainly unique and I’m pretty positive it will be a huge success for many years to come.
The “Sunset Overdrive” Season Pass gives you access to:
Two campaign Game Add-ons that each deliver new locations to explore, stories to experience, and bosses to battle. Each of these Add-ons also includes new weapons, new Amps, a new Trap, new character outfits as well as new challenges and Chaos Squad* objectives The Weapons Pack Game Add-on, which includes four deadly new weapons to augment your arsenal BONUS – six character outfits, two Amps and two Traps to use as soon as the game is released
Watch_Dogs Bad Blood, a new downloadable piece of content for Watch_Dogs from Ubisoft will be released on September 23rd for season pass holders and available from September 30th for all other players.
Watch_Dogs Bad Blood is set to feature an all new story campaign starring T-Bone, the brilliant and eccentric hacker players first met in Watch_Dogs, who is now playable for the first time. The campaign explores T-Bone’s story through 10 new missions set in new locations throughout Chicago. Shortly after the events of Watch_Dogs, Raymond “T-Bone” Kenney infiltrates Blume one last time to plant a false trail in their system. Before he can disappear from the grid, he receives a panicked phone call from Tobias Frewer, a former colleague from Blume’s ctOS prototype days, who’s in desperate need of help. Putting his own escape at risk, T-Bone decides to help, but quickly realises the details of his old friend’s story aren’t adding up.
Watch_Dogs Bad Blood also grants players access to “Street Sweep” contracts, a dynamic new system of side missions that offers players endless hours of challenges. All Street Sweep contracts are playable in co-op mode (friend or public sessions), a first for Watch_Dogs, allowing two players to work together to combat Chicago’s criminal groups. The popular online ‘Hacking’ and ‘Tailing’ modes as well as the ctOS Companion App are also fully playable as T-Bone in Watch_Dogs Bad Blood.
In addition, Watch_Dogs Bad Blood features exclusive weapons, perks and outfits, including the remote-controlled car “Eugene,” T-Bone’s latest creation that can be upgraded with both offensive and defensive perks.

Activision and Infinity Ward has today revealed that the third DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts will be launching on June 3rd for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Titled, Invasion, the latest DLC delivers four new multiplayer maps from unique locales around the world, each with hidden secrets and unique Field Orders. Invasion also includes Episode 3: Awakening, the next chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative taking players deep into an alien underworld to discover the truth behind the Cryptid attack.
Invasion’s four new small-to-medium-sized multiplayer maps feature the fast-paced gameplay Call of Duty fans crave, each one donning a distinct look, feel and unique killstreak. “Departed” is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. The colorfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners, and players that complete the map’s unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.
“Pharaoh” is the abandoned archeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Players will have to be on the lookout for collapsing monuments and urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, among other surprises in this multi-level map. Inside the palace, gamers will battle through multiple chambers ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead, who will handsomely reward players who unlock this map’s Field Order.
Invasion’s third map, “Mutiny,” transports players to a remote Caribbean island harboring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and prison cells. Speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and » Continue Reading.
