Team17 Announces Four New Worms 2: Armageddon DLC Packs

100°
141w ago - Today Community Manager Mark Baldwin at Team17 has announced that four new Worms 2: Armageddon PS3 DLC packs will be hitting PSN this month.

To quote: We have some exciting news for all you PlayStation 3 Worms fans out there - over the next month we have got some action-packed DLC packs for Worms 2: Armageddon set for release.

The first DLC pack we released last year was the destructive "Battle Pack", which had a nice mix of worm-y goodness, and was very well received by our passionate fans.

We also know that different Worms 2: Armageddon players find different features of the game appealing, and people do have their favourites.

For example, some players like to spend time wracking their brains over the fiendishly-designed puzzles; others really enjoy demonstrating their 'leet' (their word!) heavy weapons skills in fort games, while others still prefer racing each other, or against the clock, using the ninja ropes and jet-packs.

We are also aware of the fondness that many fans have for the older titles that got people addicted to the wacky world of Worms in the first place. We are proud that our fans like the breadth of content that the game offers, and we hope that with these four new DLC packs we have...
 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation DLC Hits PSN, Domination Tips

50°
142w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation PS3 DLC is now live on PSN and shared some domination tips for fans below.

To quote: Annihilation - the third pack of DLC maps for Call of Duty: Black Ops - comes to the PlayStation 3.

The DLC offers four new multiplayer arenas and a new jungle-based Zombies survival experience in Shangri-Li.

In celebration of the big release, developer Treyarch has deemed that the double XP will flow all weekend long. I'll be hosting a gameplay session this Friday night to soak some of that up myself, and my favorite game type is Domination.

Truth be told, I'm not that good a shot, so objective-based modes like this one let me help the team and keep leveing up even if I'm nowhere near the top of the K/D ratios.

In that spirit, I wanted to offer some tips for the four new maps. I don't know if we'll meet up on the same team or on opposite sides of a red dot sight, but I'm willing to take that risk in the name of having fun...

Drive In

I like this map a lot. Snipers perched in the projection room and in the screen will no doubt trade...

Video: DC Universe Online Fight for the Light PS3 DLC Revealed

50°
143w ago - DCUO Game Director Mark Anderson has shared a DC Universe Online Fight for the Light video trailer direct from Comic-Con today complete with PS3 DLC details.

To quote: Greetings from San Diego Comic-Con! Here on the show floor we're happy to be showing DC Universe Online's first expansion pack - Fight for the Light.

Light powers have been a huge fan request since before launch, and we've created an entirely new power set from the ground up with new abilities that deliver on the power fantasy of wielding light constructs in combat.

We've put way over-the-top weapons that you could only imagine right into your hands! We've worked hard to build on the existing gameplay mechanics that players love, and to apply them in unique ways that give the new powers a look and feel all their own.

Exercising your creativity and bringing your imagination to the fight is a huge part of being a Lantern, and we wanted to bring that feeling to our players. With light, players will now be able to combine weapon-based combos and superpower abilities in way that just feels right for a Lantern.





You can create things like hard-light boxing gloves and use them as a new "on the fly" weapon that comes complete with its own combos. Not only...
 

Video: Ed Boon on Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat and PS3 DLC

200°
143w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a video today featuring Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon speaking on Freddy Krueger in the PlayStation 3 title along with the secret origins of the PS3 DLC characters.

To quote: In discussing the news, Boon shed light on the long, sometimes tangled genesis of Mortal's Kombat's other DLC characters - namely Rain, Skarlet, and Kenshi.

One began as a joke, one was an incorrect rumor, and one... well, you'll see.

Look for Freddy to hit PSN on August 9th for $4.99, and read on for my full chat with Ed Boon.

PlayStation.Blog: So what is the inspiration for bringing Freddy Krueger to Mortal Kombat as a DLC character?

Ed Boon, Creative Director, Netherrealm Studios: It was a number of things. It's kind of hard to choose a character who would fit well into the Mortal Kombat universe, with the blood and violence that's so associated with it. Kratos from God of War is a brutal, bloody character, so he makes sense.

When we had the discussions about the DLC characters, we knew that we wanted to add a returning character, a new character, but also a guest character....
