Sometime in the near future, Firaxis will be adding two such targets to Civilization VI:  Khmer and Indonesia.  Both have a slight water/faith focus, but before I give too many details, it'd probably be best to check out their accompanying videos to see it all in action.  First up, we've got Khmer.

Pacific DLC Arrives Next Week for Running with RiflesJason Love

Choose to play as either the U.S. Marine Corps or the Imperial Japanese Army as you battle across seven different islands that were key to the Pacific campaign during World War II. When you're done playing through the campaign with your friends, you can hop into any one of the new maps to enjoy some old fashioned "comp stomping." The DLC also adds new vehicles, like the Stuart light tank, as well as new weapons, such as Flamethrowers and katanas.

The title was originally released as part of the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which meant that if you picked it up for the Xbox One or Windows 10, you automatically could play it on the other platform at no additional charge. While many of these titles also supported cross-platform play, curiously, Halo Wars 2 did not. That oversight will be corrected once the new update arrives sometime before the end of October (no specific date was given).

Based on some of the new info that Fatshark is putting out about the game, Vermintide 2 certainly sounds like it's shaping up to be a better game than the original... and that was already a pretty good four player co-op title. The fact more defined character progression - with the ability to choose a (for now) vaguely defined "career path" that affects your abilities and loadouts in addition to the new talent tree - is a part of this sequel is enough to make me interested. On top of that, they're also tweaking the loot system to provide more relevant loot for your character.

We're a couple weeks away from Spintires: MudRunner getting unleashed upon the world, and Focus Home and Saber Interactive want to ensure everyone knows there's more to do than just hitting your friend's vehicle with a log. The latest trailer for the revamped version of the curious mud/terrain deformation simulator shows ...

In case you're unfamiliar with the Access programs, they're subscription-based services available on both Xbox One in the form of EA Access and PC in the form of Origin Access.  You plop down a few bucks a month (or a discounted amount for a year), and have access to a number of titles in EA's library.

X, of course, is not the tenth entry in the series.  Rather, it's a rework of Metal Slug 2 released a year after the original that makes a number of core changes.  Among these are remixed music, altered enemy locations/difficulty, added weaponry, and a new announcer.  This Xbox One version of the game comes to us courtesy of the ACA NEOGEO series, which works to replicate NEOGEO classics for the modern gamer.

One of the things I've always admired about Warframe is its movement system. Sliding into a group of foes while wielding a katana and doing a sick spin that slices them into meaty bits ALWAYS. FEELS. GOOD! It's only gotten better with time, too, as Digital Extremes has tweaked the graphics, made the movement system even more fluid, and made changes to how melee combat works. One of the bigger improvements to the game has been a revamp of the whole first couple hours and the tutorial. You are eased into systems much easier than before and certain things, like how to use mods, new weapons, Warframes, and other features, are introduced through the course of all this in a gradual fashion that's not overwhelming. Honestly, if you're looking for a fun loot-grind co-op game, Warframe is in a pretty good spot right now.

Currently, you and up to three other folks can form a group called a "Wing" and head out on an adventure. If all players have the same mission, then they can all choose it from their log and complete it jointly and get individual rewards (they cannot, though, share a missions with other members of their Wing). Sometime in Q1 of next year, Frontier Development will implement new "Wing Missions," which are specific co-op goals/objectives for you to complete with friends. This news came in a 30-minute presentation during the recent "Frontier Expo," the video of which you can find below.
