      Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree trailer offers deep lore, giant flaming bosses

    A gameplay reveal trailer for a heavily anticipated expansion to Elden Ring has arrived , and it suggests that more of the big bosses, cryptic but epic-scale storytelling, and brutal combat fans have come to expect will be available in the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The downloadable content arrives June 21, 2024, and costs $40; preorders are available now ( Steam , PlayStation , Xbox ).

    Shadow of the Erdtree takes place in "The Land of Shadow," seemingly a kind of prequel setting to the main Elden Ring, potentially inside a deity's dreams. You can never be too sure, but the presence of certain characters, and the suggestion that you will access the new content by touching the arm of a major but previously unexplored character, suggests you will be traveling through their memories, their dreams, or some combination thereof. The very first image you see is of a player character riding up to a cliff and seeing a flaming tree—perhaps not the Erdtree central to the main game, but a precursor of it that is hinted at in the game's lore.

    Gameplay-wise, there are many new things to notice, including hand-to-hand combat, far more powerful crossbows, new spells and weapons, and a whole host of large, epically detailed, seemingly unfair boss battles.

      Vampire Survivors‘ first DLC offers some enjoyable (but diminishing) returns

      news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Thursday, 15 December, 2022 - 18:24

    Welcome back my friends, to the horde that never ends.

    Enlarge / Welcome back my friends, to the horde that never ends.

    In our review of Vampie Survivors , we noted how it seems like "you're always unlocking some cool new toy or character to play around with." Unfortunately, that's not literally true. After dozens of hours, most players will be able to find every secret and unlock every one of the game numerous unlockable characters, maps, and weapons.

    The game doesn't instantly lose its hypnotic, epilepsy-inducing appeal at that point, of course. But once you've finally met all of the game's many "official" goals, it becomes a bit more difficult to come up with new self-imposed challenges.

    Enter Legacy of the Moonspell , the first piece of official paid DLC for Vampire Survivors . While we welcome any new content for one of our favorite games of the year (especially when it's offered for just $2), this addition feels a little limited, especially for a game that has seen dozens of free updates since its 2021 launch in Early Access.

      Elden Ring opens up its colosseums to multiplayer brawls in free DLC

    Elden Ring 's map is huge and feature-packed, but it has a trio of notable colosseum-sized holes in it. As of tomorrow, those holes will be filled with a free multiplayer-focused DLC, aptly named "Colosseum Update."

    The colosseums of the Lands Between have long been considered the most likely site of duel-centered DLC, as they are large, locked off to (non-modded) players, hinted at in the game lore, and the subject of some intriguing file names and alternate assets and textures . With the December 7 update, the sites in Limgrave, Leyndell, and Caelid will offer "duels, free-for-alls, and team fights," publisher Bandai Namco announced today .

    The Colosseum Update trailer from <em>Elden Ring</em> publisher Bandai Namco.

    The trailer says that version 1.08 will let players "join forces to fight for the Elden Ring" and shows three player characters—two of them shaded the light red typical of multiplayer summons and invasions—wandering the landscape, fighting a dragon, and finally opening the doors to a long-locked colosseum. "Then battle for glory in new PvP modes," the trailer reads, before showing battle scenes between two players, players plus their Spirit Ash summons, and then a three-on-three melee.

      Call of Duty players flock to buy “all-black” DLC skin, hide in dark corners

      news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Thursday, 1 December, 2022 - 17:19 · 1 minute

    You'll never see me coming...

    Industry watchers who pay attention to Steam's Top Sellers charts may have noticed a surprising entry climbing near the top in recent days: a cosmetic Call of Duty skin pack themed after the Los Angeles Thieves Call of Duty League (CDL) team. Those surprisingly strong sales probably have little to do with team fandom, though, and more to do with how the nearly all-black kit can make players harder to spot in Modern Warfare II or Warzone 2.0 matches.

    The LA Thieves pack, which went on sale earlier this week, is one of 12 different themed skin packs designed around the 12 teams in the competitive CDL. But while every other available CDL skin pack features bright colors and/or a striped shoulder harness for easy visibility, the LA Thieves' offering is almost completely black, save for a small red "LA" logo on the chest, left arm, and back.

    Players have quickly noticed how this outfit could make them harder to see in the darker parts of some Call of Duty maps. "Make sure you guys head to the store and pick up the only skin that gives you a competitive advantage," Thieves player Sam Larew cheekily tweeted on Tuesday.
