A few weeks back the game got its first set of free DLC, called the Garden Variety Pack, it added a new map, new game mode and plenty of new unlockable content. Today another free DLC pack is being released called Zomboss Down, a pack set in the old west, and it contains a load of content.

Starting with the basics, Evolve has four Hunter characters/classes: Medic, Support, Assault, and Trapper. These classes all handle uniquely with their own special weapons and tools. The medic can heal others, the support can shield others, the trapper can tether and contain the Monster, and the Assault can bring some massive pain. All of the non-Assault classes can do damage as well, just not as efficiently as the Assault. During my play session, I was selected to play the Support and was teamed up with three other Hunters against a Monster player. While my experience was in the competitive 4v1 scenario, many of my observations should still be applicable to a co-op experience.

Epic, though pretty quiet for some time, has been undergoing multiple projects over the last year or so and slowing moved out of the gaming industry spotlight. The last major event we heard about them was their signing away of the Gears of War license to Microsoft, but this is anything but a bad thing. They don't want to be known as simply the guys who made Gears of War, and that's where their co-op title, Fortnite, comes in. As they said it themselves: the want to show the world that they aren't just "one trick ponies". These two trailers show off a bunch of Fortnite's gameplay that's still currently in the works, giving us our first look at what we've only read about. like

Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel (henceforth BL:PS) takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and one of the really neat things about it is that the four new playable characters (Athena, Wilhelm, Claptrap, and Nisha) have all been characters in the previous games. The story will follow Handsome Jack’s transformation from hero to villain as well as provide an explanation to why Elpis (Pandora’s moon) looked like a normal moon in BL1, but is a destroyed mess in BL2. You see, BL:PS takes place on Elpis, complete with low-gravity, oxygen kits, and lasers.

Bumblebee is one of the most recognizable characters in the Transformers universe with his yellow livery and inability to speak - you would think someone would have sorted that out by now.  He will be a playable character in Dark Spark in both his Earth form and his Cybertron form.  I still don't quite understand why an alien race would transform into a style of transport designed for a bipedal race.  Perhaps the new trailer will tell us?

Being the head of an entire nation isn’t all fun and games, you know. You’ve got to make sure you’ve got enough coinage for the gryphon roost, and at least enough mana coming in to rain poison blades down upon your enemies. And that dungeon over there ain't going to raid itself. Age of Wonders III isn’t your regular empi...

Disney hinted that Marvel characters will be coming in the version sometime in the future, but no release date has been announced at this time. The very brief trailer, "Get Ready to Assemble" showcases a cutscene where Captain America's shield ricochets around the Toy Box mode, startling the other Disney characters. I have no doubt in my mind that this means, besides the Captain, members from The Avengers team will be coming to the version.
