All the week’s news, right in one place.
Oh baby, it’s cold outside… while all of you out there have been freezing your socks off, we’ve been compiling all the hottest gaming news for you. So shut the door, whack the central heating on, and read this with your morning cuppa – there’s big news, this week.
God Eater 3 finally has a release date!
Get that hype train fired up for February 8, 2019, because that’s when God Eater 3 will finally be hitting the PS4 and PC! A new trailer has also been released – watch it over here. The game features specially enhanced soldiers that wield powerful biological weapons, known as God Arcs, which can kill the main enemy, the Aragami, who have completely pillaged the planet and humanity. They’re pretty damn tough – luckily, you can link up with up to eight players to take ’em down.
Just Cause 4 is teasing some DLC
A new trailer for the Expansion Pass has popped up, showing off three new DLC packs that seem to be coming out next year. While at the moment, the only way to get the Expansion Pass is through the Just Cause 4 Gold Edition (which also nets you the DLC seven days before anyone else), it will most likely be made available as standalone when the DLCs launch.
The three DLC packs are Dare Devils, where you battle the gangs of the Solis underground in dangerous races and death defying rallies, Demons, where Rico will face an ancient demonic force invading Solis, and Danger, where his former employer shows up, and brings a whole load of tech, secret weapons, and special ops with him. No word on a release date yet, but Just Cause 4 is out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on December 4, 2018.
We now know what maps Battlefield V has at launch
A fresh trailer is gracing Youtube, and it’s showing us all the maps Battlefield V will have at launch in all its glory. These include Norway (inspired by the 1940 Narvik invasion and Fjell 652, with quickly changing weather conditions), Holland (Rotterdam, an urban combat map, and Devastation, taking place in a ruined city), France (Twisted Steel, taking place on a giant collapsed bridge, and Arras), North Africa (Hamada, the largest map available on launch, dropping you in the desert, and Aerodrome, putting you in a central hangar), and finally, Belgium with Panzerstorm, though this one will be available post-launch. Set in the Belgian countryside with massive tank battles, it’ll release alongside the Tides of War: Chapter 1 update.
The game itself releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 20, 2018.
Fresh from Blizzcon – WoW Classic hits next summer
If you’ve got a World of Warcraft subscription, you’ll be in luck. World of Warcraft Classic will be coming in summer 2019, and is available to play at Blizzcon 2018, or at home for Virtual ticket holders. We’ll update with more info once we have it.
Finally – get Destiny 2 for free now, if you’re quick
Rock Paper Shotgun has reported that you can download Destiny 2 for free on PC right now, so long as you’re quick – it’s only free until November 18. It is only the base edition, so none of the expansions come with it, but that’s still a pretty nifty giveaway. You’ll need to download it through the battle.net client, but otherwise, download away!
That’s a nice place to end – snag your free download of Destiny 2, and enjoy your weekend!
