67w ago - Franchise Producer Michael Gamble has confirmed that Mass Effect 3: Leviathan PS3 DLC will be out on PSN later today for fans!
To quote: The BioWare team loves Commander Shepard as much as the fans do, so after we shipped Mass Effect 3, we were excited to start creating additional content that would expand on Shepard's adventures during the Mass Effect 3 experience.
Downloadable content gives us an opportunity to do just that- it gives us the chance to write new chapters that add to Shepard's legacy without disrupting the consistency of the full game.
We approach DLC differently depending on whether it's single player or multiplayer content, but with both, we aim to hit an extremely high quality bar to make sure the fans continue to get the full Mass Effect experience.
For multiplayer, we consider Mass Effect 3′s offerings to be more of a service than a product you purchase. We always said that we wouldn't do multiplayer in our games unless it was done properly, and supporting it fully well after launch is something we are committed to.
The ideas behind Resurgence, Rebellion and Earth were simple: we want to keep the community engaged in our game, keep the content fresh, and most importantly, we want to foster a level...
70w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has confirmed that the Mass Effect 3: Leviathan PS3 DLC expansion Reaper Mythology is incoming this summer.
To quote: "Shepard's story came to a close at the end of the game," BioWare Producer Mike Gamble told the crowd at EA's Summer Showcase last week.
"But there are more stories we want to tell in the Mass Effect universe." Leviathan is Mass Effect 3's first story-focused DLC, and in addition to introducing new characters, weapons, and combat challenges it promises to expand on what we know (and what we don't) about the most feared beings in the universe - the Reapers.
Set during ME3's harrowing Reaper invasion, the expansion tasks Commander Shepard with tracking down an elusive entity that, according to legend, may wield the power to defeat a Reaper.
Trouble is, nobody's actually seen it. The story begins with an email directing you to the Citadel labs and one Dr. Bryson, director of the elite Task Force Aurora research group that investigates long-shot methods for halting the Reapers.
The Protheans, it seems, were the first to suspect the Leviathan's existence after they discovered a Reaper corpse centuries ago. This all bodes well for Shepard's quest, but just as Bryson begins to pass along the key information,...
71w ago - Today Fun Bits Interactive Team Lead Chris Millar has announced that Escape Plan: Underground DLC officially arrives on PSN this week.
To quote: Escape Plan is tunneling through with new content for everyone this week. The Underground DLC pulls up for a discounted price of just €1.99/£1.59 for two weeks, Patch 1.03 goes live, and we've unpacked a ton of new costumes.
After being denied their freedom from The Asylum, we join Lil and Laarg as they ride the elevator into the depths of Bakuki's Underground. The darkness is filled with a convoluted network of trains, trollies, minions, and dare we say, an escape.
Building off the success of The Asylum, we've added four new costumes to the dressing room. Dress the lovable characters in the new Buzz and Flower Power Summer Pack costumes, with Furry and Tourist costumes unlocked by playing through the 21 Underground levels.
Did we mention the new challenges and four Trophies! Yay, Trophies!
We've also dug into consumer feedback and have added the new squeeze control to the Circle Button. This squeezes Lil while inflated or juiced-up on java.
We've also taken in more of you tips and suggestions and have applied as many as we can to help improve your experience. So we're returning the favour...
71w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Producer Oliver Smith has confirmed today that the Payday: The Heist Wolfpack DLC will be hitting PlayStation Network next week.
To quote: Attention PAYDAY crew! Wolfpack, the first PSN downloadable content for PAYDAY: The Heist, is coming to North America next Tuesday, August 7th.
We've been busy casing some new jobs for you, with Wolfpack featuring two never-before-seen epic heists - Undercover and Counterfeit.
The Undercover heist forces players to drive away the pesky police interrupting a back alley deal, while the Counterfeit heist pressures players to use silenced weapons to keep whistle-blowing civilians from escaping an underground money printing gig. If they tell the 5-0, they'll blow the whole operation!
We're also arming you with new weapons and crewmembers to ensure the job goes smoothly. These new heists require advanced skills, but award bigger payouts. Key features of the Wolfpack DLC include:
• New Weapons: Spray some lead on the move with the all-new auto handgun and assault rifle, or blow away tenacious foes with the shiny new grenade launcher. Need someone to watch your back? Release the deployable sentry gun to take out your enemies.
• The Technician: Based on the character Wolf, the technician...
