Report: Titanfall 2 Future DLC Plans Leaked via Game Code

[embedded content] Titanfall 2 recently received an update, following which GitHub user Syampuuh dug into the game’s code and ended up unearthing what seems to be content set to arrive in the future. YouTube user Titanfall Legends does a good job of explaining everything in the video above but if you prefer to read, then here’s what’s been found (in list form courtesy of Redditor JeaneJWE): Future Content: (note: details are somewhat speculatory based on sparse amounts of game code and text bank tokens) Gamemode: Hunted “Secure the Asset. Escape the Hunter.” 4 on 4, 1 flag CTF? 1 team defending, another attacking Various objectives serving as “the asset”, with black box to be extracted Prowlers and Shield Captain enemies returning from SP to help defense Includes weapon lockers for resupply No Titans, no Boosts Gamemode: RAID “Plant a bomb at the enemy hardpoint.

First Details Emerge About Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer

New details surfaced on Final Fantasy XV‘s Episode Gladiolus DLC yesterday, and now information on the game’s upcoming multiplayer mode have come to light. Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata talked to Jeremy Parish over at Polygon about the game’s future, and how the multiplayer will tie into the main game. Here’s what Tabata had to say about the exciting new offering: There are a lot of things I can’t really say about the multiplayer future just yet, but it will tie into the game — the main game — at some point in the story. And for the multiplayer feature, we are less focused on playing as the four main characters but rather as an avatar that the user creates themselves. So rather than having you and your friends play as these four guys and experience their journey again together, it’s more about the journey that you and your friends have together with each other in this world. While Tabata was light on specifics, there is a lot to unpack here. The big news is that players won’t be playing as one of the main characters, and will instead be controlling a user-created avatar. It also sounds a lot like Final READ FULL STORY…

Blizzard Continues to Tease New Overwatch Character

Blizzard is continuing to drop clues about who will be Overwatch‘s next playable character. Recently the Diablo and World of Warcraft developer profiled a new character named Efi Oladele who happens to be an 11-year-old science prodigy. This spurred conversation that she would be the next character to be added, but the company then clarified that she wasn’t playable. Now they’re back with a fictional news report that they posted on their official Twitter account. Blizzard attached the image seen above that depicts a recent airport attack in Numbani. Here’s what the tweet says: [BREAKING] OR15 defense units destroyed in confrontation with unidentified assailant at Numbani airport. No civilian casualties reported. If Numbani sounds familiar, that’s because it’s one of the first-person shooter’s maps. It’s also where the Doomfist exhibit is located, and where the rumored character’s gauntlet is displayed. This has naturally led to speculation that the tweet could be teasing Doomfist as the next character, but who really knows at this point. It’s clear that Blizzard is having fun teasing the community, and they’ll most likely continue to expand the universe with additional posts soon. Other fan speculation involves a four-legged robot called Anchora, who has appeared in the background READ FULL STORY…

Efi Oladele Isn’t Overwatch’s Next Hero

Despite the recent tease by Blizzard, 11-year-old Efi Oladele won’t be the first-person shooter’s next hero. Blizzard’s Jeff Kaplan told Polygon that while the scientific prodigy won’t be playable, she’s still an important character. Oladele will play a part in the upcoming playable character’s backstory, although it’s still unknown who that character might be. Current speculation has been centered around a four-legged robot that has appeared in several Overwatch trailers in the past. A 4chan post, which successfully leaked the news about the Lunar New Year event, lends credence to this theory as the post says the next character would be “a female omnic quadruped codenamed ‘Anchora.’” As far as official information goes, fans only have the recently published Q&A to go off of. Here’s a refresher on who Efi Oladele is, and how she might impact the story: Already one of the world’s foremost centers of scientific discovery and exploration, Numbani has a brilliant new mind to add to its ranks: Efi Oladele. In the last year, she’s built a resume of impressive achievements in robotics and artificial intelligence, but perhaps most remarkably is that she’s done all of this by the age of eleven. Last month, she READ FULL…

Final Fantasy XV Episode Gladiolus Details Revealed, Costs $4.99

New details on Final Fantasy XV‘s first major add-on have been revealed thanks to Square Enix updating their website. We now know that Episode Gladiolus will cost $4.99 individually, or can be accessed as part of the game’s Season Pass. The two other Final Fantasy XV episodes (Episode Ignis, and Episode Prompto)  will also be sold separately, as well as the game’s upcoming multiplayer expansion called Comrades. That’s good news for those that don’t want to dish out for the entire DLC package all at once. Beyond the pricing details, Square Enix also provided a description for the add-on. It’s in line with previous details that have gotten out, and the DLC will fill in what happens to Gladio after he leaves the group. There are slight story spoilers, so if you haven’t finished the game then I wouldn’t recommend reading the full description. Here’s how the website describes the upcoming DLC: Gladio, one of the three faithful comrades who accompany Noctis on his journey will become a playable character for the very first time in his own episode with a completely different type of gameplay and an all-new story.
