This piece of content will feature some surprising and bizarre elements for the game's DLC.

While detailing about the upcoming DLC offerings, a new story trailer with a new cinematic is released by the developer/publisher studio Ubisoft for Far Cry 5.

Apparently, there are more in line aside from these three and one of them will be named Blood Dragon.

You will be facing the hostile fires of the Vietcong fighters in Hours of Darkness, set in Vietnam. In Lost on Mars expansion, you will discover yourself stranded on the titular red planet fighting off giant alien spiders to save thyself.

Beyonetta and Beyonetta 2 Comes to Nintendo Switch

Today, Nintendo just dropped a brand-new reveal trailer for Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on Nintendo Switch and we got that right here for you.

With this new trailer, our favorite heroine will returns to the butt-kicking business with her dual-wielding hand guns into the world of Switch. Though fans are no stranger to the titular sexy which Bayonetta and her rogue enemies, a sort of re-introduction of the crazy world she strives to save from demons and magical creatures is given in brief to the newcomers and for the series veterans to refresh their memories as well.

As her pair of guns (no pun intended) weren't enough as weapons, she masterfully uses her hair against the monstrosities that opposes her. You will get some idea of how the experience of playing the games in co-op could be with a brief look at the "Tag Climax" mode, which aids you with local multiplayer support and the person you intend to play this with will need a Switch version of the game. Players can unlock various costumes and weapons too as they play just like it was in the original titles.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Possible Release Date

There is certainly no doubt about the upcoming action-adventure video game Marvel’s Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games and Sony Interactive is one of the most anticipated console game of 2018. However, aside from a few trailers and exclusive gameplay footage released, or which villain is going to antagonize Spidey in-game, players don't even know when it is going to come out on PlayStation 4 at all, because no official announcements were made about a possible release date yet.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Possible Release Date

Insomniac Games have given the fans enough about the game to have a basic idea of what they are getting into in Marvel’s Spider-Man through trailers and other clips but that was just a few tease compared to how much there still left to be revealed. At E3 2017, the gameplay trailer for the title was released and fans also realized that Miles Morales is going to be in it. Now, all that is needed is a date when we all can expect to get our hands on the new Spider-Man game.

REVEALED: Marvel’s Spider-Man Teaser Trailer

Now, what we have here cannot be considered as official information, but given the nature of the source, we can pretty much count it as the real deal for the time being. A Swedish online retailer named Coolshop has made a listing for upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Marvel’s Spider-Man title and according to their website; you can expect the game to arrive in store on September 28, 2018.

Of course, the release date from the Coolshop listing is not yet verified by Sony or Insomniac Games but players and fans waiting for the game can at least take this as a possible release date if not the real one that everyone is waiting for. The retailer has a history of leaking dates of Grand Theft Auto V from developer Rockstar Studios previously and of Red Dead Redemption 2 recently. The former is proved to be accurate and the latter is yet to be confirmed.

REVEALED: Marvel Video Games Will Create Original Stories

Although a September release for Marvel's Spider-Man can still be arguable, we cannot settle on anything else unless Insomniac Games decides to step up with this matter. So, we better buckle up and mark our calendar as an all-new Spider-Man experience awaits us at some point of this year.

Even though the expansion is set afterwards the main game, you can just start with The Hidden Ones at any point. However, it will be well advised for players to reach at least level 40. This DLC will help you reach up to level 45 so that Bayek can further push his limits as he goes. Four Legendary weapons and couple of other non-Legendary weapons are also introduced with new mounts. The best thing of this DLC pack is that, if you get back to the main campaign, your progress will follow you there.

We Happy Few is Delayed Again

A psychedelic horror game from Compulsion Games and Gearbox Publishing, We Happy Few will take you to 60's English town, Wellington Wells for a survival experience of a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy". The game had a release date set for April 13, 2018 to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide. However, if you were looking forward to get into that adventure, you will have to wait a bit longer than that.

We Happy Few is Delayed Again

Below is an important production update from developer Compulsion Games by producer Guillaume Provost and COO Sam Abbott that sheds light on the matter we are talking about here.

The high hopes of entering in an alternate reality jolly old England of the 1960's through the game We Happy Few is once again delayed and the developers got reason for that. So far, they are already done completing all the content they intended for the game but after some observation, they realized that the title could use some more work to be better than it is now and for that to happen, they will need some more time to give it a polish.

RELATED: We Happy Few Announced for PlayStation 4

All Compulsion Games wants to do is to change and rebuild the first few hours of We Happy Few to give it their desired look and that pushes the game to summer of 2018. The game featured three different campaigns to play with and one of them needs some more work, which is the protagonist Arthur’s story. So, the dev team is pausing and getting back to it again to give meanings to his narrative. The end of the video also reveals another main character of the game, Sally and there is still one more to reveal.

Beginning with a Kickstarter campaign, We Happy Few successfully entered Early Access on Steam and for Xbox One. The game already left a bad impression to the eagerly anticipating players when it was priced for $60 for being a "full sized, retail game". Developers are offering a refund opportunity for anyone who purchased the game on Early Access and they will remove the game from Steam on February 1 until a later day near release.

Gravity Rush 2 Online Server Shutdown Delayed

The first Gravity Rush was an action-adventure title of 2012 from Project Siren and Sony Entertainment for PlayStation Vita. Then the sequel Gravity Rush 2 came in 2017, based on a prequel anime of the same series. For some time, Sony has been meaning to shut the Gravity Rush 2’s online servers down which were set for the end of January. Back in September 2017, Sony announced to pull the plug off the servers on January 2018.

Gravity Rush 2 Online Server Shutdown Delayed

However, there's been a change of plan (or heart) now, as Sony Entertainment has most recently notified the players through a pop up announcement that they are not shutting down the online services within the previously marked deadline and in fact, they are extending the period to July 2018. The original date was exactly after one year and a day from the day of the game's release and now six more months been added to that.

Upon closing of these online services, players will not be able to invite each other on challenges or able to collect special contents, costumes and Dusty Tokens. Even without the online features, the story-driven single player mode is engaging enough to keep the players going though. Now, if Sony is withdrawing online support for the game it may also suggest that they will not be interested for a sequel either, much to the dismay of the fans.

Online Server Shutdown Notification

A small band of Gravity Rush community was in line to request to Sony with tweets containing #DontForgetGravityRush hashtags to keep the online servers alive and apparently, their request has been honored even if it is for a brief extended time-frame. This of course is a huge achievement for the dedicated PlayStation 4 fan-base of the game and they are thankful for this honor because this shows that SIE Japan Studio actually saw this and cared enough to take this step.

Gravity Rush 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive from SIE Japan Studio and Project Siren that is available to play even though the online servers are eventually going down after a few months. Still, that should not a reason for you to stop from enjoying the other aspects of the game. Besides, some of the die-hard fans of the game still believe that the right kind of persuasion can lead Sony to reconsider their decision.
