Expedition, the first DLC for Titanfall drops in May

Titanfall is still fresh in most gamers' minds, but the first DLC pack is getting prepped and ready to be deployed. Expedition is coming in May, with the fresh DLC's story taking place after the multiplayer campaign.

Expedition will feature a map called "Swampland" which will be set in the ruins of "archaic alien technology" which will provide copious amounts of trees for wall running. A second map dubbed "Runoff" will include water play. The third map, "War Games" is based from Titanfall's training simulator. Respawn is also looking at removing the HUD for video capture, something that the fans have requested.

 

The developer is also looking at something it is calling "rifts or variants" which would do some tweaks to the current modes in Titanfall. A season pass to Titanfall will set you back $24.99, something the developer announced earlier in the month.

Civilization: Beyond Earth looks to the stars, supports AMD's Mantle

Civilization fans will need to be cooled down after hearing about Civilization: Beyond Earth's announcement. Where Beyond Earth changes things up, is by lifting off from Earth, and taking off to the stars.

 

 

Civilization: Beyond Earth is more sci-fi, where players can visit other world's, universes and alien planets where we will see humans using their environment, and all sorts of other things against each other. Not much in terms of detail on Beyond Earth has been discussed, but AMD's Mantle API will be supported.

 

This means we'll see lower-end PCs playing Civilization: Beyond Earth at better frame rates, and those with beastier machines enjoying much higher resolutions and on-screen goodies at once.

PAX East 2014 has kicked off, where the gaming show has had the pleasure of being the event that Roberts Space Industries and Chris Roberts shows off the CryEngine 3-powered Star Citizen. There's some actual, real in-game footage for your viewing pleasure below:

 

 

It looks gorgeous thanks to CryEngine 3, with the crowd going absolutely wild during the video - showing that fans are really begging for this game to be released. Remember that this is a quick show, and that when we see the true multiplayer side of things with full squad communication, multi-screen setups and insane joystick and controller rigs, that's when Star Citizen will truly take flight.

The PC version of Watch Dogs looks incredible thanks to NVIDIA tech

We all knew Watch Dogs on the PC was going to be something special, but just wait until you watch the video below. It shows off Watch Dogs powered by NVIDIA hardware, and it looks sublime.

 

 

It looks absolutely incredible, with anti-aliasing cranked up, and shadow detail on maximum. It's very fluid to watch, where it looks to be running at between 30-60FPS. HBAO+ is a big part of the graphic goodness, thanks to NVIDIA.

 

For the open-world game to look this great and run that smooth, I'd love to know what requirements I'm going to need to run it at 4K at 60FPS minimum. Maybe four GTX Titan's? Or do you think you might need something like two GTX Titan Z's when they're released? Whatever the case, my wife is going to be pretty mad when I upgrade.

More rumors of GTA V hitting the next-gen consoles, PCs in June

It feels like we've been reporting on this for months now - well, we have - but there is a new rumor from TECH-NICK, the manager of German retailer Saturn.de, who said in a tweet that Grand Theft Auto V is coming for next-gen consoles and the PC in June.

He did clarify in a follow up tweet that it is just a rumor for now, but E3 is getting close, so we should hear more about GTA V on next-gen consoles and PCs then, hopefully.

Super Planet Crash is the best physics-based game on the internet

Physics games are one of my favorite time killers on the internet, and the study of planetary systems is another small hobby I like to pursue when I have fleeting moments of free time. Today I learned of a new internet game that combines the two into a game more addicting than Flappy Bird, Angry Birds, or Gem Miner combined.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36898_1_super_planet_crash_is_the_best_physics_based_game_on_the_internet.jpg

 

Super Planet Crash is a game designed by Stefano Meschiari, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas, Austin, that challenges players to create planetary systems using various stellar bodies such as Earth and super Earth-sized planets, ice giants, gas giants and even other stars such as brown dwarfs. The object is to design a solar system that is capable of making it to the 500-year milestone without having any planets or stars crash into each other or exit the solar system bounds.

Bruce Lee revealed as the mystery fighter in EA Sports UFC

EA sports have finally revealed the mystery fighter for the upcoming MMA title EA Sports UFC is none other than the father of mixed martial arts Bruce Lee himself.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36863_1_bruce_lee_revealed_as_the_mystery_fighter_in_ea_sports_ufc.jpg

 

EA's development team worked with Lee Enterprises who provided digital references, life-cast of Bruce's body and behind-the-scenes photos of Bruce Lee for developing the character. EA wanted the most accurate resources they can get to create a representation of the legend as much as possible.

 

UFC President Dana White said,"There's no debate, Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts. He believed not one style of fighting was the best and that you had to have a little piece of everything to be a complete fighter. He was proven right when the first UFC event took place in 1993."
