Thursday, December 18, 2014

Ubisoft has announced new DLC for Far Cry 4 which is set to release on January 13, 2015. Escape from Durgesh Prison will challenge players to race against the clock to complete challenges and rise to the top of the leaderboards. Read on.

From the Press Release
Ubisoft® announced that Escape from Durgesh Prison, a new piece of downloadable content for Far Cry 4, will be released on January 13, 2015. In this challenging time trial players will race against the clock and other players to complete challenges for a spot atop the leader boards.


In Escape from Durgesh Prison Ajay and Hurk wake up after being captured, tortured and stripped of their weapons in Yuma’s prison. Thrown in the dangerous world of Kyrat without anything to defend themselves with, players will complete a series of challenges to find weapons and unlock new skills while trying to reach the extraction point to safety.

Playable in single player and coop, this difficult mode will keep players running across Kyrat to complete side objectives dictated by Pagan Min to recover their lost weapons and upgrade their gear before a final stand-off with Yuma's forces. To ramp up the challenge, when players die they must start the mission over again and use the knowledge and skills they gained during their previous run through to help them reach their extraction point successfully.

Escape from Durgesh Prison is available as part of the Far Cry 4 Season Pass or can be purchased separately for $9.99. The Season Pass is still available for purchase for $29.99, a savings of 20% compared to buying each piece of content individually, and includes Escape from Durgesh Prison as well as the content below:

  • The Syringe – Already available exclusively for Season Pass holders, players must keep a rare and potent recipe from falling into the hands of Pagan Min’s forces. Playable in single-player and co-op, players will need to ensure that he does not use its devastating effects on the rebel forces.
  • Hurk Deluxe Pack – Five missions, playable in single-player and co-op, including Yak Farm, Blood Ruby and Hurk’s Redemption are available. Access an arsenal of new weapons including a harpoon gun for Hurk.
  • Overrun – Team up as Rakshasa or Golden Path in this PvP mode and control a series of neutral locations across Kyrat’s countryside to protect them from being overrun by your opponents.
  • Valley of the Yetis – Ajay’s helicopter has crashed on an unforgiving Himalayan ridge. Explore the frozen landscape and find tools to upgrade your camp and protect it from a dangerous cult when night falls. With single-player and co-op options, players will not be alone, but in the darkest caves players will have more to fear than the cult as the yetis await their prey…

In Far Cry 4 players will experience the most expansive and immersive Far Cry game ever, in an entirely new, massive open-world. Players will find themselves in Kyrat, a breath taking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape. Developed by Ubisoft Montréal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios, Far Cry 4 is now available worldwide.

Warface Receives Ambush Update Alongside Exciting Holiday News

Warface players can now venture through "Ambush" with a new update for Operation Cold Peak. Gamers who login and play from now until December 25th in Warface will also find their inventory packed with Warface dollars and fun Christmas outfits. Read on.

From the Press Release
Warface players can now delve deeper into Blackwood's Siberian stronghold as the latest map in a new winter setting arrives today. The second level in the Operation Cold Peak update, "Ambush" challenges teams to storm a ruined castle and then hold strong when their mission turns out to be a deadly trap. With the enemy closing in, players will have to risk it all as they work together to build defenses around their position whilst holding off wave after wave of attackers. If they do make it out of the castle in one piece, the appearance of a menacing Blackwood helicopter on the horizon will initiate the next nerve-racking showdown. Team Warface is cornered, massively outnumbered, and a long way from home – but in the midst of these snow-bound mountains, it is perhaps Mother Nature that will spring the ultimate surprise.


Ambush follows on from the "Spearhead" map in Operation Cold Peak – a new string of missions that brings winter to Warface and provides the starkest of tests for experienced players. Also coming to Warface as part of today's update is a sackful of festive content and a series of special gifts for players. Every day between now and December 25th, players who log in to Warface will find their inventories boosted with everything from bonus Warface Dollars to quirky Christmas outfits and Yuletide weapons. On top of these giveaways, two new items have been added to the shop – namely a Christmas Gift Box which doubles as a devious directional mine, and the Christmas Firecracker; a powerful pistol which resembles a Christmas cracker but goes off with a significantly bigger bang! Once players are suited, booted and armed to the teeth, the Versus Hangar map – now once again completely revamped in honor of the holidays – is the perfect place to spread some seasonal fear.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Introduces Players To The Students of Class Zero With New Trailer

Square Enix has announced the release of new trailers for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD to give gamers some insight on the students of Class Zero. Read on.

The first trailer gives the perspective from Orience News – reporting from the frontline, Orience News is the only trustworthy provider of information across all of the four states and has unprecedented access to the resistance, namely Class Zero and its allies. In “Orience News Special Report,” players find out more about the personalities within Class Zero and their fight against the invading Militesi army.

In response to “Orience News Special Report,” High Commander Marshal Cid Aulstyne has quickly responded with a new propaganda film, “Traitors of Orience,” discrediting the cadets of Class Zero. The film attempts to show the students’ arrogance and petty in-fighting within the group, pushing the ideals of the Empire once more.
