Apocalypse expansion pack brings five new maps for the Battlefield 1 players to explore. The Caporetto, Passchendaele and River Somme are three of the standard multiplayer maps. You play on an aircraft-only game mode on London Calling and Razor's Edge maps as they are specifically designed for Air Assault. Though the majority of the battle is just dogfights but that doesn't mean that giant Airships won't be popping out of nowhere to give you some more trouble.

The DLC pack brings few new tools on the table. There are weapons like RSC SMG, meat cleaver or handy prybar to use as melee weapon, AA Rocket Gun for the Assault class to damage enemy aircrafts. Plus, two bomber aircrafts Airco DH10 and Hansa Brandenburg GI will be at your disposal. Codex entries, dog tags, medals and ribbons are among the cosmetic items that you need to unlock and you got some new assignments as well.

Bardock is Goku’s father who died fighting Frieza and his character appeared in many in flashbacks of Dragon Ball Z. In Dragon Ball FighterZ, he has a Super Special Attack called “Revenger Assault” and it transforms him to a Super Saiyan even though it is completely non-canon. Broly on the other hand is an accomplished villain who starred in three of the Dragon Ball films. His powerful energy based attack “Gigantic Meteor” is more than capable to demolish his arch-enemy Goku.

Based on the player matchup for your team formation, you will be able to re-create iconic moment from the franchise as well as character-wise dialogue like many other popular games of the genre.

Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Just as the prequel Injustice: Gods Among Us took the gaming world by storm, developer NetherRealm Studios presents fighting game Injustice 2 repeated the history and created a new one. Back in November 2017, NetherRealm made announcement of introducing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the world of DC's most popular duel of heroes on February 2018 and that time is finally here.

From across the Multiverse, our beloved heroes in half-shell have finally made their way to Injustice 2 and they have just debuted in a gameplay trailer today. Watch them boys at work with their bo-staff, nunchakus, sai and sword.




Seeing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo going up against the biggest and baddest there is from the DC Universe is truly a spectacle of a lifetime. However, bringing the fan favorite mutant heroes from another franchise makes a lot of eyebrows raise but this is not the first time Warner Bros. have done that. Previously, paranormal investigator and a demon from Hell, Hellboy of Dark Horse Comics along with Mortal Kombat's Raiden joined the Injustice 2 roster.

Well, the Ninja Turtle brothers fight the warlord from Dimension X and their arch-nemesis Krang on a regular basis and he is from out of the world. So, obviously there is quite a lot of inter-dimensional travelling they do very often. One such trip has gone sore and they have ended up in a world not any less-crazier than theirs. Besides, DC Universe has their fair share of twisted plots regarding the Multiverse and that makes the explanation pretty legit.

Oh and in case, anyone was wondering, Ed Boon from NetherRealm Studios has posted on Twitter how to get your Ninja Turtles from the character selection screen of the game.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will join the fight this month and the date will actually depend on the players. Those who own the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2 can get their hands of them from February 13. Otherwise, you can also buy the Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack 3 for access to the characters on that same day. Rest of the players worldwide will have their turn from February 20 onwards and the stand-alone DLC purchase will cost them only $9.99.

Injustice 2 is a fighting video game based on the properties of DC Comics, which was released by NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to begin with. A version of the game is also available to play on Android and iOS devices as well. We are still hoping that they feature a few popular characters from Watchmen franchise of DC Comics to the game someday.

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.

Also, the critically acclaimed installment of the series, Far Cry 3 also returns through the Season Pass and takes you back to Rook Islands.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak Details

Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege has been based known for its parallel run with reality so far but that thing is changing very soon. With the release of upcoming Outbreak event, the series will step into the sci-fi genre and probably even meet aliens. Yes, visitors from outer-space are about to step foot and the elite Rainbow team will have an encounter with the strange visitors on unfriendly turfs.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak and Space Capsule

You can stop looking suspicious at us and take a quick look at this newly released short-clip from developer/publisher Ubisoft titled "Space Capsule" to find out if we are kidding or not.




Now that we have successfully established that neither Ubisoft, nor us were not playing cuckoo about the alien matter, let's get onto more details about it. Outbreak is a forthcoming co-op event from the third year of content of Rainbow Six Siege. During Operation Chimera, the event was teased and two brand-new operators, one of whom is specially trained for biological and chemical attacks. All we lacked was information on what sort of quarantined area they will be going into.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 DLC Announced

Initially, these clues and the biohazard sign on the promotional teaser image suggested that the counter-terrorism operatives of Rainbow Six team will be tasked to take down a zombie epidemic but with the new "Space Capsule" trailer, that changes. So, instead of an undead threat, they will be dealing with extraterrestrial menaces. Apparently, the trouble is originated with a recovered Russian spacecraft in a small town of New Mexico.

An alien parasite that came out of an old Soviet space capsule called the Apex starts transforming the locals into hostile beings. As the extraterrestrial threat starts terrorizing the populace, Smoke, Ying, Buck, Kapkan, Ash, Doc, Tachanka and Glaz will be joined by French Operator Lion and a Russian Operator Finka on a mission to the town of Truth or Consequences. This means, these are the only playable Operators for the Outbreak event and a team of three Operators will be sent in.

RELATED: Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege's Blood Orchid is Bugged

Ubisoft has seemingly avoided the word "zombies" in their promotions for and instead are calling them people turning into "horrific creatures" by aliens. There will be five unique types of them with their distinctive abilities for the hot zone specialists Rainbow Six team to take down. Most recently, the developers have also played with the idea of introducing alien threats to another of their real-life like tactical shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands by dropping popular sci-fi character The Predator from the 1987 movie of the same name.

RELATED: Predator Comes to Ghost Recon Wildlands

Outbreak offers you Normal and Pandemic difficulty levels, both having different game-playing style. In Pandemic mode, not only you will come across tough enemies but you can catch on some friendly fires too. That makes your communication a vital point of the game and you need positional awareness at all times. Since your target won't bother getting shot a few times before taking a dig at you, start using the blockades and reinforcements from your surrounding environment smartly.

There are three large exclusive maps to explore that are designed for the purpose for co-op gameplay. With dangers lurking in every corner, the trademark "environmental destruction" of the game is still there for you to blow up and create holes in the wall too. Plus, don't forget about the weapons and uniform cosmetic packs for this timed-event.

The month-long Outbreak event along with Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 will begin on March 6 and will draw conclusion of the co-op on April 3. The content will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right from the beginning. So, it's at least four weeks of stay in the Quarantine Zone fighting those mutated horrors. While playing Operation Chimera on Rainbow Six Siege technical test servers, players can try out Outbreak from February 20 before it completely releases though.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Maps

On November 3, 2017, first person shooter Call of Duty: WWII was released from Sledgehammer Games and Activision as the latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise. Within two months of its initial release not only the game brought $1 billion, it also managed to become one of the record-breaking bestselling console game from Activision.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Map Details

Previously, Activision showcased another preview trailer for The Resistance DLC pack detailing what players can expect to find and the studio has been developing this expansion.




Although, many of the players are currently busy with the first community event "Winter Siege", we believe this new trailer for the first DLC of Call of Duty: WWII titled "The Resistance" is worth to look at.




The Resistance DLC of CoD: WWII is bringing three brand-new multiplayer maps to explore as well as a new War Mode mission called Operation Intercept. Also, let's not just forget about "The Darkest Shore" for Nazi Zombies mode. The expansion pack will drop on PlayStation 4 next week on January 30, only a month before arriving on PC and Xbox One.

Brand-New War Mode; Operation Intercept

War Mode - Operation Intercept
Probably one of the best features of The Resistance expansion pack is the brand-new War Mode mission: Operation Intercept. Operation Intercept is mostly comprised of rescue missions set in urban locations outside of St. Lo, France. Players are tasked as Allied Forces members to rescue French resistance fighters from the Axis foes and lead them to safety. Once freed, the next objective is to destroy all the key communication gears and lead a tank to an Axis train carrying weapons.

A New War Mission

The Axis side will try to keep the Allies from retrieving the Resistance fighters to join their cause. They will also guard their comms and halt the tank from reaching the train at any cost. Since the Axis soldiers are well equipped to repair their damaged radios, the objective will not be so easy to complete. This however, is not the only challenge that will force you to rethink your moves, Call of Duty: WWII has much more in stock to keep you entertained.

For now, we've shed enough light on Operation Intercept, so let's focus on the three new multiplayer maps The Resistance has to offer.

Valkyrie Map

Map 1: Valkyrie
Set in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, Valkyrie is the first map that comes along with the DLC. This one is based on The Wolf’s Lair of Hitler, which he used as his Eastern-front headquarters when Nazi forces were invading the Soviet Union. It's the site of Operation Valkyrie, where attempts of taking down the Führer in real-world by his high-ranking officers and failed eventually. This medium-sized map demands that you keep an eye on several overwatch positions and mounted machine guns in places.

Map 2: Anthropoid
The second multiplayer map Anthropoid is also inspired by a real event called Operation Anthropoid from the time of World War II, where a high-ranking German officer was the target on an assassination attempt. Anthropoid map is located in occupied Prague, Czechoslovakia and because of the urban setting of the map; you will experience a unique diversity of gameplay on this one.

call of duty wwii the resistance occupation map

Map 3: Occupation
The final map on the list, Occupation and is a remake of a classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 map Resistance. This one involves the players to gunning around the streets of a German-occupied Paris and there are a lot of mid-range combats. Occupation is one of the most iconic pieces for the Resistance movement during World War II that it had to be included in The Resistance DLC. While you are playing in it, you can even notice the Eiffel Tower in the background at some point.

This time, the lunatic has moved to the coast of northern Germany and conducting his twisted experiments there to get back at the Allied Forces.

After the catastrophic event at of Mittelburg, Straub is about to create a new batch of Nazi Zombies to do his bidding. The fog surrounding the environment around you makes it more difficult to spot the undead and deal with them.
