Far Cry 5 DLC Includes, Mars, Zombies, Vietnam

Ubisoft Montreal is getting weird with Far Cry 5's post-release support. A new trailer shows off the campaign's story, in which the player helps to lead a resistance against a cult leader and his brainwashed followers in Montana. The DLC is decidedly less serious, however.

Players who pick up the game's season pass will be able to download three separate adventures. They're as follows, with the text straight from Ubisoft.

The Gold Edition of the game includes Far Cry 5 and the season pass for $89.99. There's no word yet on the pricing of the individual DLC episodes.

Take Control Of The Genestealers In Turn-Based Battles

The Warhammer 40,000 universe continues to spread into the world of video games, with the announcement of a new Space Hulk title. Space Hulk: Tactics is a turn-based tactical game based on the board game, featuring a pair of campaigns and online multiplayer. 

Publisher Focus Home Interactive says the two campaigns show battle from two distinct points of view. In one, you command a squad of Blood Angels, directing their actions and upgrading them during the course of the story. In another, you take charge of a Genestealer swarm, clawing and rampaging your way through Space Marine forces. 

Online multiplayer modes let players choose Genestealers from one of four different Space Marine groups. Those include the Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Ultramarines, and Dark Angels. Players will be able to create their own maps (with customized objectives) and share them with the community.

Atlus has released a new trailer for Dragon's Crown Pro, the 4K rerelease of Vanillaware's sprite-based 2D brawler.

The new trailer is mostly just an excuse to gawk at Vanillaware's artwork, now coming to PlayStation 4. It retains all the features of the previous version, but cleans up the art and adds a new arranged soundtrack completely recorded by a live orchestra.

Check out the new trailer below.

A Pirate Game Worth Its Salt

A Pirate Game Worth Its Salt

Xbox One’s ambitious open-world pirate game, Sea of Thieves, recently wrapped up its closed beta. Game Informer interns Jon Bowman and Robbie Key got a chance to brave Sea of Thieves’ vast waters. They pore over details of their voyage such as how they fared in running a two-man boat, how terrible a drunk accordion player sounds, and whether or not Rare’s title is worth buying at launch.

Jon –  It probably goes without saying, but this game is a lot more fun playing with buddies rather than randoms. Even if we weren’t rewarded properly ...

Robbie – Absolutely. Our two-hour tour was enough to tell me this game is meant for goofing off with friends. Though, I will say playing with a random crew can be fun. Right before we joined up, I played and talked with a guy who was actually on PC, which was a pretty surreal cross-platform moment for me. The other two didn’t have mics, but we all worked well together in our voyage. That made things a thousand times better. It makes a world of difference when you have good teammates in any co-op-heavy game, and this is no exception.

Kiryu Assembles His Dream Team In New Clan-Creator Video

Kazuma Kiryu brings people together, whether it's helping random couples with their love troubles, smoothing out relationships between criminals, or giving Yakuza players a common appreciation for the long-running series. Yakuza 6 gives the hero a new way to unite people, with the introduction of a clan-creator minigame. Think of it as a slightly more violent version of the series' hostess clubs. OK, it's a lot more violent.

Kiryu will be able to recruit a variety of different foot soldiers for his clan, which can be leveled up through battles. Those battles are fairly ambitious affairs, featuring dueling teams of up to a dozen combatants each. Players assume the role of battle tactician, giving commands to Kiryu's men and helping them take on enemies – including the Six Lunatics. You can see the lunatics and more in the video below.

New Trailer Introduces Nakoruru And Goes In On Fanservice

A new SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy trailer released at the conclusion of EVO Japan sets up the story and shows off the customization menu, as well as introducing Nakoruru into the fold.

The new trailer establishes that the cast of SNK heroines were called to a castle by an unseen and almost certainly evil force and are now battling it out for some reason in cow bikinis and vampire costumes. The trailer also does a fairly deep dive into the customization menu and what appears to be a model viewer with a security camera filter.

You can check out the trailer below. SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy is releasing on Switch and PlayStation 4 this summer.

A Stylish RPG Involving Pirates And Mercenaries

A Stylish RPG Involving Pirates And Mercenaries

Developer Klei Entertainment has always had a knack for style, with games like Don't Starve and Invisible, Inc. At last year's E3, Klei showed off its newest project, Griftlands, that once again has a unique look and premise.

Griftlands is a sci-fi RPG that its developers describe as a "pirate/mercenary sandbox," where you attempt to make a fortune for yourself. You control a group of mercenaries who have several different quest lines, and Klei explains that the world will mold and dynamically change depending on your actions. As for battles, these are played out in a turn-based fashion with a focus on subduing your enemies rather than outright killing them.

Much of Griftlands revolves around its economy, and on its Steam page, it says that "everything is negotiable," including money, loyalty, and morality. Below, you can watch its reveal trailer, which premiered at last year's E3 at the PC Gaming Show.

Out Of The Park Baseball 19 Announced With New Online Mode

Spring is just around the corner, and Out of the Park Developments has just announced Out of the Park Baseball 19, which is not only evolving the MLB-licensed baseball simulation series you know and love, but is adding a new online fantasy feature after launch.

The game comes out on March 22 (PC, Mac, Linux) and you can get it at 10 percent off for $35.99 if you pre-order it on the OOTP website. Pre-ordering also lets you play it early on March 19.

While at launch players can dive in and control all aspects of their clubs – as well as play in custom tournaments and the Arizona Fall League, among many other options – after launch they can enjoy this year's new mode: Perfect Team. This is a card-based fantasy sports mode similar to a Diamond Dynasty (MLB The Show) or Ultimate Team (EA Sports). The standalone mode features microtransactions like others of its ilk, but it can be played with no money spent as well. An open beta in the spring is planned for Perfect Team with a summer release.

Hands-On With The Action-RPG Remake

Hands-On With The Action-RPG Remake

The original Secret of Mana is a game I hold near and dear to my heart. The original SNES title is a classic, a tale of a boy on an epic, world-saving adventure after finding a sword that resonates within his mind. It was also one of my first action RPG titles and the idea that this full-blown narrative game could be played cooperatively blew me away. Now, with Square-Enix remaking the game for modern hardware, I got hands-on time to see if the remake could invoke the same feelings of discovery and disbelief in me.

The brief bit I got to play involved taking heroes Randi, Primm, and Popoi to the Moon Palace. Randi was stocked to the brim with different weapons to try out, while the rest of the party had their magic spells at the ready. New inventory and weapon wheel changes allow for a faster user interface, making accessing those weapons and spells far easier.

Individual items, including equipment, can also now be placed as hotkeys on the L1 or R1 buttons on the PlayStation 4 controller. It helps make dealing with multiple enemies less stressful, as well as lessening the repetitiveness of the combat. Spells can also be placed there for quick buffs and fast cooperative techniques with your party.
