Battleborn’s First Free DLC Hero Launch Dated, Double XP Weekend Announced!

5/19/16 by 2K STAFF

It’s only been a couple weeks since Battleborn was unleashed on the world and already new heroes are joining the fight to save the last star! The first of five new free playable characters – Alani, the warrior-monk healer – releases on Tuesday, May 31st for all platforms and can be unlocked for 47,500 credits earned in-game. Can’t wait that long? Digital Deluxe and Season Pass holders will not only be able to instantly unlock Alani using a Hero Key (more on these keys below), they will also be able to play Alani early starting on Tuesday, May 24th! 

  • Alani Early Access: May 24th starting at 9am PDT for all regions
  • Alani Official Release: May 31st starting at 9am PDT for all regions

What time is that in your region? Check here

A member of the Eldrid faction who was raised as a healer, but forced to be a warrior, Alani is all that remains of her order after Rendain’s Jennerit Imperium stole the oceans from her world. As a warrior from a planet with vast seas, Alani’s attacks and abilities revolve around her power to control water to dish out pain, or heal her fellowBattleborn. Check back on May 24th for her full reveal and in the meantime, here’s a first-look at Alani fully rendered in-game.

 

Hero Keys

Want to unlock Ghalt before getting to Command Rank 40? Then you’re in luck! Starting with the release of Alani, Digital Deluxe and Season Pass holders will receive one Hero Key to instantly unlock ANY hero in the game with each new hero release. To use a key, just head to the Battleborn Character screen in the Command Center and choose the character you want to unlock. You can also use these keys to instantly unlock newly released heroes like Alani, saving you the time it would otherwise take to earn enough credits to do that.

Here’s even more good news: Hero Keys are reusable! If you complete the challenge objective or reach the required Command Rank at any time after unlocking a hero using a Hero Key, then that Hero Key will be returned to you and you can then use that Hero Key to unlock another hero.

 

PlayStation 4 Open Beta Bonus

As a thank you to PS4 players who participated in the Open Beta, they will receive a Hero Key to instantly unlock Alani on May 24th or another hero of their choice, as well as the first Battleborn DLC Pack Story Operation upon release. For those PS4 Open Beta players who also purchased a Season Pass or Digital Deluxe Edition, they will receive an additional Hero Key (bringing the grand total to six throughout the release of Season Pass content).

 

As you can see, we’re gearing up for a summer of awesome new content. The release of Alani is just the beginning of many free updates we’re planning. You can see what else we have in store for future content in this post. And this weekend? It’s time to double-up on your XP!

 

Double XP Event

Join us for a Double XP event in Battleborn! From Friday until Wednesday, you can reap the rewards of earning double Command Rank and Character Rank experience in all Story Mode missions and Competitive Multiplayer matches. This event is global and available to all platforms. All you need to do is jump into battle and bask in double XP glory.

  • START: Friday, May 20 at 8am PDT
  • END: Wednesday, May 25th at 8am PDT

Dying Light: The Following Reveal Trailer !

Price and Season Pass Offer Detailed

August 13th, 2015 – Wroclaw, Poland/… After a successful showing at Gamescom 2015, Techland has released the reveal trailer for Dying Light: The Following – a story-based expansion set in a massive new area that’s as big as the original maps from Dying Light combined. Dying Light: The Following will see Kyle Crane travel to a hazardous outback ruled by mysterious and fanatical cultists whose beliefs have unnerving connections with the zombie outbreak.

To get close to the cult and unravel their secrets, players will need to earn the trust of the locals. Through various missions and tasks, players will be able to choose their own path for infiltrating the inner circles of the cultists. In order to succeed in this harsh countryside, players will also gain access to fully customizable and upgradable dirt buggies. With its own unique skill tree, players will be able to traverse the vast expanse of the Harran countryside in what is their deadliest weapon yet.

“Gamescom 2015 was our first chance to let people play Dying Light: The Following so I was a bit nervous – admits producer Tymon Smektała. But so many positive reactions really showed me we made the right decision to work on this expansion. With its new map and far-reaching gameplay additions, it feels like we’ve hit the sweet spot for what players are expecting from us.”

While a release date is still to be determined, Techland has confirmed that Dying Light: The Following will be priced at $14.99 (UK and EURO pricing TBC), while all Season Pass holders will receive the expansion completely free.





ESO – IMPERIAL CITY DLC LAUNCH DETAILS!

Located at the heart of the Cyrodiilic Empire, the Imperial City has fallen into ruin, claimed by Molag Bal’s forces. It is comprised of six Imperial Districts, the extensive Imperial Sewers network, and the White-Gold Tower at its center. The dangers of Imperial City and the Sewers below are best suited for small groups of adventurers, but highly skilled warriors have been known to strike out on their own. While exploring and fighting your way through the Imperial City, be prepared to face not only Molag Bal’s forces, but also enemy players from the opposing alliances.

Rewards that are unmatched in power await those who are brave enough to enter the Imperial City and claim them. Fight Molag Bal’s personal guard, the elite Xivkyn, and other invaders from Coldharbour to win Tel Var Stones, the currency used to trade for mighty Veteran Rank 16 armor sets. But be on your guard—enemy Alliance members lurk around every corner throughout the Imperial Districts and Sewers. Should you fall to an enemy player, they can claim your hard-earned Tel Var Stones in their own quest for glory.

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept: Online Co-Op Action !

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Introduction


Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept is the next big DLC expansion pack for Killzone Shadow Fall. It adds a brand new four player online co-op mode to the game, in which you and up to three of your friends are placed on the elite VSA team known as Intelligence Squad Alpha. Operating behind enemy lines, your team is on a mission to intercept and relay Helghast military transmissions back to VSA headquarters.

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept comes with four arena maps inspired by locations from the single player campaign. It launches this June and will be available for free to Killzone Shadow Fall Season Pass holders. A standalone version of the co-op mode will be made available later this year.

More in-depth information on Combat Roles, maps and tactics for the co-op mode will be published to Killzone.com in the coming weeks.

Gameplay
To complete your mission, you’ll need to keep waves of Helghast interlopers at bay long enough to establish a Hacking Uplink and transmit the data to HQ. Your Team Score indicates how close you are to establishing a Hacking Uplink; increase it by defending your Uplinks from Helghast capture attempts, or by “banking” the Personal Score you’ve accumulated from kills, ability uses and recaptures. You can even earn bonuses such as artillery strikes and jetpacks. Always be on your guard, though: if you lose an Uplink to the enemy or have to respawn after critical injury, your Team Score will incur a penalty. If all members of your team are dead and your Team Score is too low to allow respawning, the mission is a failure.

Combat Roles
The members of Intelligence Squad Alpha have all been trained in unique Combat Roles. Using teamwork and complementing each other’s Combat Roles is absolutely essential to completing the mission. These are the Combat Roles you can divide amongst your team mates:

Assault
The Assault Combat Role specializes in close-quarters combat. The Assault wields a modified version of the LS36 Breacher shotgun, which enables him to quickly dispense enemies that have broken through Intelligence Squad Alpha’s Defenses.
Abilities:
·         Use Enemy Weapons
·         Deploy Sentry Drone
·         Use health pack
·         Sprint
Default Loadout:
·         Modified LS36 Breacher shotgun
·         M55 Rumbler assault rifle with grenade launcher attachment
·         Frag grenade x2

Marksman
The Marksman Combat Role is equipped for medium and long range encounters which makes him ideal to scout for enemy movement. The Marksman carries a modified version of the powerful LS70 rifle with explosive rounds, allowing him to take out multiple enemies with a single shot before they become a threat to other teammates.
Abilities:
·         Use Enemy Weapons
·         Deploy Sentry Drone
·         Use health pack
·         Sprint
Default Loadout:
·         Modified LS70 Fors sniper rifle
·         M55 Rumbler assault rifle with ACOG scope attachment
·         Laser trip mine x3

Medic
The Medic carries the supplies required to keep his teammates in fighting shape. This Combat Role is mainly support-oriented, and focuses on healing, reviving and resupplying the other members of Intelligence Squad Alpha.
Abilities:
·         Revive player
·         Drop supply box x2
·         Deploy Medi-Drone
Default Loadout:
·         LS21 Valk submachine gun
·         E-pulse grenade x2

Tactician
The Tactician Combat Role is geared towards defending Intelligence Squad Alpha’s base and Uplinks. The Tactician can use his nanoshield and sentry turrets to put pressure on enemy attack routes, giving his teammates more time to react.
Abilities:
·         Deploy Sentry Turret x3
·         Deploy Shield
Default Loadout:
·         LS12 Ripper machine pistol
·         E-pulse grenade x2

Enemies
Just like the members of Intelligence Squad Alpha, the AI-controlled Helghast enemies in Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept have their own sets of goals and Combat Roles. They will switch up tactics and angles of attack when they capture an Uplink, so you’ll need to adapt your defense strategy accordingly. On top of that, the enemy can call on special Helghast champions with unique abilities, based on key Killzone Shadow Fall characters. Expect to go up against some very familiar faces!

THE MIGHT OF THE AMAZONS IS UNLEASHED UPON DC UNIVERSE ONLINE IN UPCOMING DLC PACK, AMAZON FURY PART I

SAN DIEGO – March 20, 2014 – Sony Online Entertainment today announced the next chapter in DC Universe™ Online (DCUO):  Amazon Fury Part I. The game’s 10th downloadable content (DLC) pack will introduce a brand-new storyline featuring Wonder Woman, Circe, Hippolyta and the Amazons, as well as a new shared open area, Solo Iconic Visions, a 4-player Alert, two new Duos, and Weapon Mastery abilities.  The DLC pack will be available for download on the PC, as well as the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®4 system, this spring.

STORYLINE: Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, has gone mad, or so it seems when she allies with Circe and declares war on the mortal world! Her own daughter, Wonder Woman, has rallied an army of Amazons that will defend the people of Gotham City, and try to help their Queen see reason.

QUICK FACTS:

  • Amazon Fury Part I is the first of three DLC packs that focus on Wonder Woman and the Amazons.
  • Weapon Mastery will allow players to master multiple weapon types and seamlessly combine them during combat for greater flexibility and power.
  • Amazon Queen Hippolyta will make her debut in  DC Universe Online with this DLC pack.
  • The Alert and Duos will give players the opportunity to adventure through the Themyscira Palace District, warehouses, and seaside port for the first time.
  • Everyone can play as either Wonder Woman or Circe in new Solo Iconic Visions that let players relive crucial moments that led up to the Amazon civil war.
  • The new shared open area will take place in an alternate phase of Gotham City called Gotham Under Siege, which is overwhelmed by the divided Amazons and their powerful allies.

QUOTE:  Players are going to feel more badass in combat with Weapon Mastery. It will allow them to become proficient with multiple weapon types, much like the iconic characters in the DC Comics, such as Wonder Woman, who uses swords but is also a punching brawler. Weapon Mastery is going to bring fights to a whole new level. — Jens Andersen, Senior Creative Director for DC Universe Online

Join Amazon Prime – Watch Over 40,000 Movies

If you want to see all changes with Patch 1.05; here’s our list. Patch 1.05 will be rolling out globally over the next 24 hours.

Multiplayer

Abandoned Territories Map Pack DLC
  • DLC playlist added for each game type. This includes both the retail maps and the DLC maps, but the DLC maps should appear much more frequently in the vote.
Gameplay
  • Fixed an issue where players on the winning team would occasionally get fully crafted items or machetes from caches, while players on the losing team would get incorrect items.
  • Players should no longer get comeback weapons (pre-crafted molotovs / bombs / purchase weapons) when they are winning by more than a small margin.
  • Fixed the consistency of comeback weapons spawning – there should be less comeback weapons in close matches and more consistent spawning in severely unbalanced matches. Once a player receives comeback weapons, however, they will not receive them again until a certain amount of progress has occurred in the match.
  • 2×4 Spawning logic has been adjusted in Supply Raid and Interrogation:
  • Fixed a bug where it would occasionally be impossible for a player to receive a 2×4 in a game.
  • Reworked the initial 2×4 spawning logic to make the first 2×4 spawn a bit later to balance the escalation of the match.
  • Lowered the overall number of potential 2x4s that could spawn in a match by including weighting based on match progress.
  • The additional hit on modded melee weapons has been moved from Brawler Level 1 to Level 2, and the health gain from melee hits moved from Level 2 to 1.
  • Added a Parts bonus for late joiners, based on when you join a match in progress. This bridges the gap between players who started from the beginning of the game and might have a Parts advantage over the late joiner.
  • When late-joining beyond the first 2 minutes that match will no longer count towards any clan progress or missions.
  • Fixed an issue on Checkpoint and Lakeside that had locations where some items could not be picked up.
  • Made a fix to prevent players from being able to climb the tilted flag pole on the High School map.
  • Fixed an issue with level graphics dropping out on The Dam.

The Last of Us on PS3

Interrogation Mode Fixes
  • Games no longer end in ties unless both teams are on the same section of the unlocking process. If one team has more interrogations than the other, that team will win the match.
  • The additional parts bonus for winning by a large margin is only awarded when the lockbox is fully unlocked. Otherwise only the standard win bonus is awarded.
  • Killcard now correctly describes whether your character was executed or interrogated.
  • Fire on the ground (from a Molotov) now damages the player when they attempt to unlock the lockbox and will properly interrupt the unlock process.
  • Sounds have been added to the Interrogation animation
  • Fixed a bug where the end-of-match music was not playing in Interrogation mode.
Technical Fixes
  • Intro speech should no longer occasionally be heard twice at the start of the game
  • A flashing exclamation mark will be shown on DLC option for when new items are added
Single Player
  • Tweaks to a couple of art assets in the game.

You can buy the Abandoned Territories Map Pack for $9.99 stand-alone or, if you’re looking for a great value, the map pack is included in the $19.99 The Last of Us Season Pass. We recently detailed our future plans for all Season Pass DLC and the 75% savings you’ll get by purchasing one. The Season Pass will be available for a limited time so grab it via the PlayStation Store or at your local game retailer today.
