A new trailer and screens from the upcoming DLC for Resident Evil 7 biohazard are available for download, including a look at the upcoming third DLC release End of Zoe and the free Not a Hero DLC content.

The trailer and screens introduce some new glimpses into End of Zoe, featuring a mysterious outdoorsman named Joe who lives along the bank of the marshes and has a chance encounter with Zoe that sets both their fates in motion.

The new assets also showcase the free Not a Hero DLC, featuring the return of Resident Evil fan favorite and veteran BSAA soldier Chris Redfield.

The Surge Gets Free ‘Fire & Ice Weapon Pack’ DLC

Dystopian action-RPG The Surge is releasing today its first post-release DLC for free, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players. Deck13’s hardcore sci-fi adventure has you fighting for survival in a facility ruined by a mysterious event called the Surge. Utilize your powerful exo-suit as you sever limbs, parts, and weaponry from your enemies using The Surge’s unique targeting mechanics and tight combat system. This free DLC brings 10 new weapons to the game – 5 of fire and 5 of ice – and you will have to fight for them.

Representing fire are the new MG-branded weapons. These high-tech military weapons are deadlier versions of CREO’s riot control products, capable of high physical damage with low elemental damage. Repeatedly attacking humanoid enemies with these red-hot blades will create a powerful fire-based explosion.

Also available in this DLC, the ice weapons cometh! These are CREO’s space travel testing tools, concepts and prototypes constructed in their very own R&D labs. These weapons were created to test materials in the cold darkness of space, and can harness extremely low temperatures. They are not designed for combat, however, so they have low physical damage but high elemental damage. Wielding these weapons provide a passive bonus to health.

Once the DLC is installed, consult the security memo and the CREO newsletter added to your inventory’s Organizer, and use their clues to locate these 10 deadly weapons and tear them from the limbs of your foes!

Star Wars Battlefront II Single Player Story Scene

1.jpg

The death of the Emperor wasn’t the end of the Empire. While the fall of the nefarious leader sewed confusion among the ranks, the surviving officers of the Imperial navy still wield influence over vast fleets and powerful forces. But even from beyond the grave, the Emperor’s destructive control holds sway over the galaxy… not just over his enemies, but also over the servants who failed to protect his life.

Part of that vengeance is enacted by Messenger droids, one of which plays a key role in the single-player story of Star Wars Battlefront II.

Messengers are agents of the Contingency – the Emperor’s sinister plan put into effect in the event of his untimely demise. Outlined in Star Wars Shattered Empire and Star Wars Aftermath, the Contingency punishes Empire and Rebellion alike.

Messengers are foreboding droids. They bear the visage of the dead Palpatine, and some are equipped to enforce his will not just with words, but with violent action. Early in Star Wars Battlefront II, a Messenger tasks Iden and her father, Garrick Versio, with terrifying instructions. We don’t want to reveal much more about this critical sequence, but its pretty clear that Iden’s “unusual” mission will place her on a collision course with the last wishes of the fallen Emperor.

The Messenger is just one of many story connections to the broader Star Wars galaxy revealed in the new single-player campaign. You’ll be learning much more about Iden, her teammates Del and Hask, and many of your favorite Star Wars characters in Star Wars Battlefront II, launching November 17.

However, you won’t have to wait until then to go hands-on with the game. The Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta is coming October 6 (or October 4 if you pre-order).

The award-winning Nemesis System is coming direct to players’ fingertips in Middle-earth: Shadow of War mobile, where each Orc enemy faced remembers all past encounters and battles, creating wholly unique experiences from player to player.
