DLC Plans Include Three New Episodes, Online Co-Op Mode

Now that development is complete for Final Fantasy XV proper, the team's attention has shifted over to DLC. Square Enix has released some information about what players can expect to see in the game following its release, and plans include three episodes – each centered around one of Noctis' cool buddies – as well as an expansion that includes four-player co-op.

Square says that each of the three DLC episodes features gameplay that's tailored to each of the characters, and that players can acquire weapons in those episodes that can be used in the main campaign. Following those, an expansion called Comrades will let players tackle monsters as a group. DLC will be available individually and as part of the game's $24.99 season pass.

In addition to those details, the company released a new CG trailer for the game. It shows a vision of a bleak future, should Noctis fail, as well as an important lesson about the hazards of distracted driving.

Here's How Moogle Decoys Work

Latest Look At Yakuza 0 Shows Goro Majima's Dramatic Rise

Sega has released a new trailer for Yakuza 0, which shows how the series' Goro Majima loses an eye and gains his reputation as the Shimano family's so-called Mad Dog.

The clip shows Majima at the Grand Cabaret, where he is tasked with clearing his disgraced name while earning money for the Tojo Clan. As it turns out, Majima is pretty good at keeping the cash flowing into the nightclub. That goes against the spirit of the job, which is meant as punishment, so his boss decides to raise the stakes.

Check Out The New Welcome To San Francisco Trailer

Ubisoft's new gameplay trailer for Watch Dogs 2 sets its focus on the Bay Area and its wide variety of distinct cultures.

Lead character Marcus Halloway narrates as the scene shifts across the San Francisco Bay, through the city, and over Oakland, Marin, and Silicon Valley. He describes the often uneasy coexistence of the free-spirited counter culture and wealthy elites within the Bay Area, as characters experiment with VR and play guitar in the colorful plazas.

And of course there's plenty of hacking, plus lots of Fast & Furious-style car, speedboat, and helicopter hijacking. Check out the video below.

See How Visuals Improve In New Trailer

Bethesda’s latest video showcases the transformation possible from last-gen tech to current-gen visuals for the impending re-release. 

An awful lot of players explored Skyrim when the game originally released back in 2011. As such, Bethesda needs to make a strong case for why it might be worth returning to the world of the Elder Scrolls for the new special edition. That seems to be the goal of the newest video showcasing the game. 

The new video should feel familiar to any player who once wandered the lonely and snowcapped trails of Skyrim, but the added layer of lighting fidelity, texture detail, and other polish can’t help but impress, especially when accompanied by Jeremy Soule’s stirring and memorable theme. 

Adding Depth To A Classic Formula

Adding Depth To A Classic Formula

With just a month before their release, the enthusiasm for Pokémon Sun and Moon is swelling. At the height of this hype, The Pokémon Company has given everyone a peek at the final product with a recent demo. While we can't say for certain that everything in the demo is reflective of the final product, this appetizer gives us a good idea of what the main course might be like.

The GraphicsFrom the first moment you boot up the demo you can tell that this is on another level graphically. While X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire dabbled in 3D, they were still technically based on a 2D grid. Sun and Moon go all-in, adding depth that changes how players interact with the game. Opposing trainers now watch the player's movements within a line of sight. This gives the environments a sense of scale that is reinforced by new cutscenes that show Pokémon at their actual heights compared to the trainer. The final battle of the demo's main trial with a larger-than-life Hakamo-o felt way more intimidating when it was towering over the player character just moments before.
