Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wrath of the Druids DLC Delayed
Two months ago, Ubisoft announce that they will be releasing the first major expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Wrath of the Druids, on April 29, 2021. However, Ubisoft recently announced that they have made the decision to delay the launch to May 13, 2021, so that they have more time to “deliver a more refined experience.”
In the upcoming expansion, players will travel to Ireland to unravel the mysteries of an ancient and mysterious druidic cult, tracking and discovering their members. Wrath of the Druids will dive into Gaelic myths and folklores, so players will fight their way through haunted forests and dazzling landscapes and at the same time have to gain influence with Gaelic kings. The expansion is included with the two-part season pass, and will also be available for standalone purchase.
Days Gone Releases the Freaks on PC in May
Days Gone is an open-world survival horror game set in a post-apocalyptic world where a global pandemic has transformed millions of humans into zombie-like “Freakers.” Players play as Deacon St. John, a military veteran, outlaw and bounty hunter who roams the dangerous and desolate wilderness solving problems for human encampments.
Similar to the PC release of Horizon Zero Dawn, the PC version of Days Gone will feature new display customisation options with increased level of detail, foliage draw distances, and graphical customisations. There will also be a new super-resolution photo mode. All these new options mean players will get to experience the horror of 500 Freakers charging towards them in greater detail.
Wasteland 3 Wants You for the Battle of Steeltown
Just when you thought you were done in the Wasteland, inXile Entertainment and Deep Silver pull you back in. The award-winning squad-based RPG will be receiving its first narrative expansion DLC: The Battle of Steeltown on June 3, 2021.
The DLC takes place in southwest Colorado in a towering factory complex of Steeltown, which manufactures the trucks, armours, weapons and robots that keep Colorado running and the Patriarch in power.
However, deliveries have been mixed up, delayed and even gone missing. So the Rangers are sent to investigate the cause of the disarray and prevent Steeltown from crumbling.
Along with new equipment, quests and enemies, the DLC will also add new mechanics to the tactical combat such as stacking status effects, elemental shields, telegraphed attacks and non-lethal weapons.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint to Receive Two Major Updates
Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Breakpoint was released two years ago and it is about to receive two major free updates throughout 2021. The studio recently revealed that they will be adding more customisation, progression, replayability, quality and technical improvements to the game.
The first of these major updates will arrive at the end of Spring and is known as the “Teammate Experience Update”, which aims to give the AI teammates an upgrade. Some of the new features coming to your AI squad include new XP progression, passive skills and abilities. There will also be a new dedicated quest log for players to experiment with the new AI squad features and receiving exclusive rewards.
As for the second major update, which will be released in the Fall, it is said to be one of the biggest operations so far. So far, no news has been released for this operation. But we will be sure to bring you the news about it when we receive it.
CD Projekt Commited to Fixing Cyberpunk 2077
While Cyberpunk 2077 is still far from the game CD Projekt Red promised players, the studio has been hard at work ironing out the myriad of bugs and glitches via patches. Good news for fans of the game and CD Projekt, CEO, Adam Kiciński recently said that “the studio remains committed to Cyberpunk for the long term,” in an interview.
"I don’t see an option to shelve Cyberpunk 2077," Kiciński said. "We are convinced that we can bring the game to such a state that we can be proud of it and therefore successfully sell it for years to come."
Overall, this is good news for gamers who have already purchased the game or waiting for the right time to purchase it. Even with all its issues, Cyberpunk 2077 is still considered a huge sales success, with more than 13 million copies sold.
