This Lord Pack will add Volkmar the Grim (a wizard) to the Empire faction and Helman Ghorst (a necromancer) to the Vampire Counts. Legendary Lords are a bit more special than the normal lords you can recruit to lead your armies as they have a couple of unique spells/skills they can use in combat as well as having unique questlines they can pursue to gain powerful items. In addition to these two Legendary Lords, two new lord types - the Strigoi Ghoul King and the Arch Lector - will be added for the Counts and the Empire, respectively, along with new regular units and, for the first time, "Units of Renown." The latter are elite versions of existing in-game units with some increased stats and/or unique abilities. Full details about what the pack entails can be found on the Steam store page.

New Content, Free and Paid, Out Now for AlienationJason Love

On the free side, Weekly Missions are being added to the game. These special assignments will task you and up to three of your friends with completing some familiar goals with unusual modifiers. If you succeed before the next mission drops the following week, you'll get some special rewards, like some new armor (a new loot option added as well) with different modifiers. Finally, a new difficulty level has been added and the Hero level cap has been increased,

As the end of the summer starts to roll around, large content launches and expansion announcements start to gear up for MMOs, just as we see this August. This month for MMO Co-Opportunities we take a look at Living World Season 3 starting up for Guild Wars 2, a large content-focused DLC and update hitting Elder Scrolls Online, and a major expansion...

Even if you don't buy the Beastmen DLC, you can still play against them in the game's "Grand Campaign" mode. The new race mixes elements of the Chaos and Greenskin races, meaning you not only have to worry about them spreading corruption but also suddenly doubling their forces when they work up their rage meter enough. Along with that, a new hero for the Empire, the Amber Wizard, has been added that can ride a Griffon and wield the new Lore of Beasts magic, and a new Chaos lord, Sarthorael the Everwatcher, can be used in custom and multiplayer battles. You can read up on all the tweaks, fixes, and additions over on the Total War wiki.

The first of many pieces of DLC dropped for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped this week. You can expand your roster of playable characters in the game with heroes and villains featured in the Star Wars Prequel movies, and from the new LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures TV animated series. The character packs are $1.99...

Skull Rain shifts things from the deserts of the Middle East to the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Both of the new operators are from the Brazilian special police unit known as BOPE (Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais) and, as with the previous new characters, one is an attacker and the other a defender. Capitão, the attacker, has a special tactical crossbow that can fire incendiary bolts to ignite all the oxygen in a room and suffocate opponents (I don't think that's how air works?) and Caveira, the defender, can sneak up on enemies, incapacitate them, and reveal their fellow teammates.

My two favorite armies to play when I was young were Chaos and Undead (now called the Vampire Counts). The ranks of my Chaos Warriors were bolstered by the feral Beastmen and I couldn't help but notice the distinct lack of those units in the Chaos Warriors DLC. Apparently, that was due to Creative Assembly building out a unique campaign for the Cloven Ones. In addition to being able to play as Beastmen in the main Campaign mode, there's a special Story Campaign (called "Eye For An Eye") set on a unique map that will pit Khazrak The One Eye against the forces of the Empire.

The Finnish developer announced the news on the PlayStation Blog yesterday and also revealed their plans for some paid DLC. First off, though, the update next week. As I mentioned before, this is a free update to the game that will allow you and a group of friends to plop down on the same couch and play together. The loot rules do change, however. In online co-op, all loot is instanced; in local, it will be "first come, first serve." So, please, be kind to your friends and don't grab all the gear for yourself.

According to 2K, all of the operations that will be released over the next few months will allow players to play through them over and over again as "the story, enemies, and objectives will change, increasing the difficulty but also the rewarded loot." They don't go any further into what that means exactly though if it holds up that would certainly bring some welcome replayability to the co-op side of things. Playing the operation will also be the only way to earn the new skins and taunts that are a part of each piece of DLC.

Similar to how LEGO Dimensions has split up its various offerings in to "Level," which include a new level and characters to play, and "Character" packs, which only include new characters, the planned content for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be similarly split. Three level packs (Poe's Quest for Survival, First Order Siege of Takodana, and Escape from Starkiller Base) and four character packs (Prequel Trilogy, Freemaker Adventures, Star Wars: Rebels, and The Clones Wars) are slated for release once the game launches next month. Each of these will retail for $2.99 or you can pick up the Season Pass for just $9.99. The Season Pass will also include a special character pack, The Jedi Order.

Aside from the character art and a brief blurb, not much else is known about Pendles. He apparently hails from the same planet, Akopos, as Alani and he likes to use kama. Also, assuming you didn't pick up the game's Season Pass, you'll unlock Pendles by spending 47,500 in-game credits, just like Alani.

Pardon our tardiness as we're getting caught up on some of the news from the past couple weeks. The Eclipse DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 arrived for the PC and Xbox One versions on May 19 and developer Treyarch released a new, extended trailer for the zombie campaign portion, "Zetsubou No Shima."
