Crackdown 3: Free bonuses available for download now!

Released on February 15, just a few days ago, Crackdown 3 made a dazzling launch. Indeed, according to the ranking established by the site True Achievements, Sumo Digital’s title rose to the third position of the most played games on Xbox One, just behind Fortnite and Apex Legends, who wins the first place.

Obviously, it’s the single-player campaign that has won the hearts of players. The Wrecking Zone multiplayer mode seems to be somewhat shunned by the players for the moment, and the reason is simply that this mode does not currently allow you to invite your friends to join a party. But do not panic, because an update note was published yesterday on the official website of Crackdown 3 announcing that the team is currently working to include this feature in the game, and it should be added soon.

Meanwhile, we also learned that Crackdown 3 has a free download bonus pack available now. The pack contains “The Hooker”, an armored vehicle equipped with a machine gun turret, “Commander Jaxon Ultimate Outfit” that boosts your strength and explosive skills by 10{c4f60b86d58bd0bb42d7d202d81274380459a85a5d81d139dd8bd0c48cc6a02e}, and finally, a rather crazy weapon, “The Quackhammer”, a rocket launcher that launches… explosive ducks.

Crackdown 3 – The Quackhammer

Finally, the developers have announced that a new update should be deployed next week. We will be sure to keep you informed.

As a reminder, Crackdown 3 was released on February 15, exclusively on Xbox One and PC, and it’s compatible with Xbox Play Anywhere. To get it at the best price, have a look at our comparator.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice trailer features Lady Butterfly

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Lady Butterfly

Just last month, we were pleasantly hyped when they gave us a video trailer showing off the boss Gyuobo Masataka Oniwa. This time, they gave us yet another one.

It is a new day for all the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice fans as Activision and From Software revealed yet another enemy, the Lady Butterfly. Physically speaking, Lady Butterfly is an elderly woman with deathly glare and crazy skills. Despite her age, you can see that her experience and fighting skill is almost unparalleled.

The trailer is short, on-point, and it shows Lady Butterfly in a burning temple. There is not much action going on in the teaser, just Lady Butterfly showing up and wielding a sword skilfully and before it all ended, we are gifted with a cliffhanging question: how will Sekiro defeat this seemingly formidable enemy?

If you remember, Lady Butterfly boss fight was shown to media about a month ago, but without any hints of gameplay. It was said to be a perfect example of how Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is like Dark Soul’s wild boss fights. It´s just that in Sekiro, players are free to create more complex fight sequences.

Lady Butterfly is undoubtedly fast and has some tricks up her sleeves. Players must be dying to know more. This trailer is just something that you can munch until the game is officially released on March 22nd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out the minimum requirements needed to play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice here before the big day arrives.

Darkest Dungeon 2 is coming

Red Hook Studios have announced a sequel to the critically-acclaimed role-playing game Darkest Dungeon. They have published a teaser that shows a group formed by the well-known heroes that survived to the nightmarish events in the original game. This time they seem to be moving to a new and terrifying location, the Howling End.

The previous Darkest Dungeon is a very popular side-scroll gothic adventure in 2D with turn-based combat. On it, you control a group of heroes that are helping you to reclaim the states that you have inherited from your ancestors. The place is overrun by monsters of all types and corruption. Nothing new at this point, but then the game manages to make use from quite original mechanics to hook you with gameplay that differs a lot from what you are used to see on any other RPG.

Darkest Dungeon – Boss fight

The heroes are expendable, and you can recruit more of them anytime. Once they get to explore the different dungeons that you can find in the game, they will have to deal with horrific creatures and events that not only will have an impact on their health but will also plague their minds with unbearable stress and mental afflictions of all types. Getting them equipped and sane enough to face the monstrosities in the place is not an easy task at all, and that’s one the most attractive thing of the game, its difficulty.

Darkest Dungeon – Too much stress

After the original release, a few DLCs were added to the game. The Crimson Court featured vampire-like creatures and a new blood-related mechanic; The Color of Madness introduced a gauntlet type of event where you face waves of enemies and bosses to earn a new currency that allows you to buy very powerful items. Some new heroes were also added as part of those or on separate DLCs.

We are not sure yet of what type of perilous creatures we will have to face in Darkest Dungeons 2, but we can recognize some of the heroes from the previous installment in the teaser (Plague Doctor, Man-at-Arms, Hellion, Highwayman, Leper, and Grave Robber). We expect a lot of surprises in the new game since Red Hook Studios have already unveiled that the game mechanics have been tuned up and that they are working hard to make the metagame quite different to the one in the previous game.

There is no launch date announced for Darkest Dungeons 2 yet, but we expect to see it on Early Access soon.

DiRT Rally 2.0 arrives at full speed!

With twenty years and thirteen games on the clock, the series Colin McRae Rally is undoubtedly one of the most famous licenses in rally racing. The name DiRT, appeared for the first time in 2007 with Colin McRae: DiRT, and the series was completely renamed in 2011 with DiRT 3. The series owes its success to its very realistic approach to driving, and it’s for a good reason, its name is borrowed from multiple rally world champion Colin McRae, who worked closely with Codemasters on the first installment.

The series has since made its way and continues to seduce the players. Announced last September, the highly anticipated DiRT Rally 2.0 will be released on February 26, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

So, what’s going on a few days before the official release? Here is a little overview of what awaits you.

In terms of landscapes, DiRT Rally 2.0 will make you travel. Indeed, always with the aim of offering realism to the players, Codemasters has integrated into this new entry six real rally races in Argentina, New Zealand, Poland, Spain, Australia, and in the United States. So there is a variety of different environments available to you. In addition, the game also includes the FIA ​​World Rallycross Championship, which will take you to Barcelona, ​​Montalegre, Mettet, Loheac, Trois-Rivieres, Hell, Höljes and Silverstone.

The career mode “My team” will always be on the program, allowing you to participate in different events, accompanied by your staff. And in DiRT Rally 2.0, it will be important, because your co-driver and the mechanics in your garage will have an impact on your results in the race, so you will have to adapt your strategy according to their skills.

DiRT Rally 2.0 – Weather Effects

The weather will be taken seriously in DiRT Rally 2.0. The system has been improved and it will have a direct impact on your driving. In case of bad weather, your visibility may, for example, be reduced, or your car could lose grip on the road. Speaking of the road, one of the big news of DiRT Rally 2.0 is the degradation of the track. The more vehicles crossings it, the more the terrain will be damaged, forcing you to adapt your driving. The damage done to your vehicles will also have an impact on your performance, because it is not limited to aesthetics, but will also affect the mechanics of your vehicles. Hence the importance of choosing your team.

On the side of improvements, you can now choose the tires of your cars. Softer tires offer better grip, but wear faster, while harder tires are more durable, but slow you down. The developers have also announced that a complete tutorial will be available for vehicle customization, to make it more accessible and understandable for all players.

The dates of The Division 2 open beta are known.

If you have not had the chance to participate in the closed beta that took place from February 7 to 11, and you’re eager to discover the next installment in the Tom Clancy’s series, then here’s a news that you should be more than happy to hear.

Ubisoft has announced on its dedicated forum that The Division 2 will soon be entitled to a beta phase open to all players.

Ubisoft invites us on its site to stay tuned for more details on this beta of The Division 2.

The Division 2 Open Beta Announcement

The mystery remains intact for the moment. However, a message left by rwan007, a moderator of the forum, suggests that the content will be different from the one in the closed beta:

Hello,

From March 1st to 4th, there will be an open beta.

The content and possible rewards are still to be defined.
But according to the developers say it will not be the same beta as the “private”.

As a reminder, players who took part in the closed beta could play through two main missions and five side missions. They discovered the open world of The Division 2 also participating in an end-game mission for three characters of level 30, and finally accessing the Darkzone East, one of the largest three areas in the game.

More news should arrive in the coming days, and we will be sure to keep you informed. Anyway, this new phase of beta looks pretty good, especially after the developers announced that the closed beta met a great success with the players.

Anthem microtransactions: What and how much

While some games abuse the microtransactions as a funding tool, it seems that Anthem will not be the case. Executive producer Mark Darrah briefly touched the matter and it will be expanded in a date closer to the official launch of Anthem.

To sum it up, there will be no loot boxes and there will be no “pay to win”. They will be restricted to cosmetic and vanity items, so they will have no impact on the gameplay and the players will be made well aware that they are buying an item before spending any money.

When you access the store in the game by pressing escape while in Fort Tarsis and navigating to the “featured” tab, you will open a screen where you can buy in-game items with a currency called Coin or with a premium currency called Shards. You will earn Coin by completing in-game challenges, and Shards will be purchased with real money via the Origin store.
While at launch most items require Coins, they will have a Shard cost, just in case you would rather unlock them with real money. There will be a weekly rotation for the store’s stock and there will only be a few items to purchase when the game launches.

Currently, there are for sale Armor Packs costing 61.000 Coin / 850 Shards per set, two materials to change the texture and a pattern of the surfaces on your Javelin at 12.000 Coin / 300 Shards each, and an emote called Gum on Shoe that costs 18.000 Coin / 400 Shards.

Anthem – All Javelins

Here is a list of the current prices for Shards at launch:

500 Shards: $4.99/£3.99
1050 Shards: $9.99/£7.99
2000 Shards: $19.99/£15.99
4600 Shards: $39.99/£31.99

Anthem will launch on February 22, 2019, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. You can get the best price for it through our price comparison tool.
