Devastation, the second DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to launch on April 3rd exclusively first on Xbox Live for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. Devastation is set to deliver four new small to medium-sized multiplayer maps that include a mountaintop Mayan temple, a mangled container ship, a giant excavation digger in South America and a fully reimagined version of Infinity Ward’s fan-favourite map “Dome” from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – each with their own unique Field Order. There’s also the all-new “Ripper” tactical 2-in-1 weapon and “Episode 2: Mayday” – the gripping second chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative which includes multiple mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapon and closes with a battle against a monstrous, 100-foot tall Cryptid alien boss, aptly named the Kraken.
Additionally, as a special offer available starting today for players on Xbox Live, Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass owners get instant access to Devastation’s all-new “Ripper” weapon, which features the unique ability to quickly convert from Sub Machine-Gun (SMG) to Assault Rifle and back again in the midst of battle and can be used in all Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer maps.
Devastation delivers four distinctive new maps with the fast-paced gameplay Call of Duty fans love, each with their own surprises. The first map, “Ruins,” is located on a Mexican peninsula and set amidst the remnants of a mountaintop Mayan temple, with multiple levels providing verticality for longer-range weapons and underground pathways perfect for close-quarters encounters. Savvy players that find and complete the unique Field Order will be able to trigger the map’s volcano to erupt and enjoy watching enemy players attempt to take cover as fiery debris fall from the sky.

New DLC is coming to Xbox One’s launch title Ryse: Son of Rome, developed by Microsoft Studios and Crytek, in the form of ‘Mar’s Chosen’ DLC Pack. The DLC will add new maps, a new character skin and a brand-new cooperative gameplay type called Survival Mode.
In Survival mode, there is only one objective: battle alongside a fellow gladiator against endless waves of barbarians as your health gradually drains. The only way to regain health and keep death at bay is with quick kills and brutal executions, but the longer you survive, earning more gold and experience with each wave successfully cleared, the faster your health depletes.
In addition to Survival mode, “Mars’ Chosen” Pack features five maps. Two of the maps: Firestorm and Dockyard, are specifically created for Survival Mode, and the most popular map, Courtyard, has been optimized for Survival Mode. The other two; Pyramid and Obelisk , will transport you to the distant and exotic shores of ancient Egypt in Arena Mode. Lastly, Mars’ Chosen Pack includes a new character skin: the Legionary.
Xbox Wire has also reported that from February 18th, there will be a ten day sale on Ryse : Son of Rome DLC Content leading up to the release of Mar’s Chosen, including a reduced price for the Games on Demand version of the game on Xbox Store.

Just hit install if you have the Season Pass, or alternatively download the 22mb update to unlock the story from your HDD.

Additionally for a quick look around the new maps press play on some of the video’s below where I briefly walk around solo to give you an insight into how they look in-game.
Starting with Ignition, this is the return of the old Modern Warfare 2 map by the name of Scrapyard. What was once a small aircraft boneyard scattered with parts from Modern Warfare 2 is now a high-tech looking (albeit derelict) rocket launch facility in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It was a really great map when it was first available on the Xbox 360 providing cover under wreckages of planes, and now in next-gen glory comes not only a modern looking re-skin, but a few neat features that will see a rocket launch and explode in mid-air! The debris will fall back down to earth and kill anyone in its way; also hidden within the » Continue Reading.
The first chapter of the Dead Rising 3 Untold Stories downloadable content has now been released on the Xbox One Games Marketplace.

The Onslaught Map Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts is here! The first of four massive, Downloadable Content Packs launching first, exclusively on Xbox Live for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 features four classically designed, smaller to medium sized maps delivering the fast-paced multiplayer experience fans love, the all-new “Maverick” dual-purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle and “Episode 1: Nightfall,” the first instalment in Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction’s four-part episodic story that follows humankind’s first contact with the Cryptids.
Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught delivers a variety of new offerings for fans to dig their teeth into, starting with four new multiplayer maps. “Fog” is a chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake. Players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of terror by donning the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters of all-time, as the entire soundscape changes to the eerily familiar Halloween theme music.
“BayView” is a coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.
“Containment” drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centres on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.
Onslaught’s fourth map, “Ignition,” is a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favourite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close » Continue Reading.
Turn 10 and IGN have teamed together to release the ‘IGN Car Pack’ for Forza Motorsport 5, a new DLC pack offering-up a selection of new cars to be used in-game. The pack contains 10 new cars, but the catch is even after purchasing the pack for £8.99 from the Store, you’ll still need to then purchase the cars individually in-game using your hard earned credits and tokens if wanting to use them in racing career. The cars included are listed below:
1957 Ferrari 250 California
This fan favourite is a perfect blend of Ferrari’s 250-series racing technology in a package that not only is suitable for touring and cruising, it also lets you take in the raucous sounds of the wonderful Tipo 128F Colombo V12 through the open top.
1961 Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage
The trident logo of Maserati has always borne the burden of being known for its racing accomplishments. Using the four-cylinder two litre from the 200S canted at 45 degrees, the Birdcage revolutionised the exterior of race cars of its era.
1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog featured this 409 cubic inch V8 monster in their track “Let Me Ride.” This has led to countless enthusiasts preserving or restoring Impalas back to showroom condition
1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432
“432” stands for four valves per cylinder, three carburettors, and two camshafts — all features of the high-performance S20 motor yanked from the top-of-the-line Skyline GT-R. This lady is as valuable as she is rare.
1977 Ford Escort RS1800
With a storied history in rallying, the 1977 Ford Escort RS1800 should prove as desirable in Forza Motorsport 5 as it is by Ford enthusiasts and collectors in real life.
