Darkest Dungeon Is Getting Multiplayer

Darkest Dungeon Is Getting Multiplayer

For four years the grueling dungeon-crawler Darkest Dungeon has let players suffer alone. In May, new downloadable content will add a multiplayer arena where they can suffer together.

Red Hook Games announced the new content back on April 1, but because it was April Fools’ Day, everyone assumed it was just a joke. Multiplayer? In Darkest Dungeon? All these years later? Yesterday, it confirmed...

Borderlands 3’s Latest Expansion Gives The Series Its First Good Boss Fight

Borderlands 3’s Latest Expansion Gives The Series Its First Good Boss Fight

Guns, Love, and Tentacles, yesterday’s major update to Borderlands 3, revolves around a gay wedding on an alien planet. While that’s fantastic in its own right, the rest of the expansion is pretty great too, combining fresh aesthetics with a bevy of cool new guns and what is arguably the series’ only good boss fight in 10 years.

Guns, Love, and Tentacles tasks the player’s Vault Hunter with...

Ultimate Alliance 3’s Fantastic Four DLC Is An Epic Epilogue

Ultimate Alliance 3’s Fantastic Four DLC Is An Epic Epilogue

The first two installments of downloadable content for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 added new multiplayer game modes and challenges. Fantastic Four: Shadow of Doom, the third and final bit of paid DLC, adds a playable epilogue to the game’s story starring Doctor Doom and his four best pals.

After two helpings of relatively narrative-free additional content, MUA3 players finally get a new,...

Control’s First Story DLC Is Just As Good As The Main Game

Control’s First Story DLC Is Just As Good As The Main Game

Control’s new downloadable content, The Foundation, is neither a simple add-on nor an afterthought. Rather, it’s a fully-fleshed out expansion that pulls you deeper into the mysteries, paranormal combat, and sprawling exploration that made Control one of

the best games of 2019 . In fact, much of The Foundation measures up to the quality of the base game. In quite a few places it even...

Control Is Getting Some Cool New Abilities

Control Is Getting Some Cool New Abilities

Grow my little rock friends, grow!

Control is full of fun paranormal powers you can use to manipulate its world. The Foundation downloadable expansion coming to PS4 and PC on March 26 adds a few more. One of them is called Shape and it lets you sprout giant barnacles to create platforms you can hop on to reach new areas.

It’s both a key to exploring the DLC’s new underground location and makes...

Granblue Fantasy Versus Adds Buff Grandpa Soriz April 7

Granblue Fantasy Versus Adds Buff Grandpa Soriz April 7

Every fighting game needs a muscle-bound older gentleman to show those young whippersnappers what’s what. In Granblue Fantasy Versus that old man is Soriz, a former weapon crafter who decided he was the greatest weapon of them all. He also enjoys wearing loincloths. He’s coming to the game on April 7.

One part living weapon, one part dirty old man, Soriz is the third of five downloadable...

Spawn Has A Lot Of Weapons In Mortal Kombat 11

Spawn Has A Lot Of Weapons In Mortal Kombat 11

NetherRealm Studios gave us our first real look at Mortal Kombat 11's sixth DLC character during last night’s tournament and one thing’s clear: everything Spawn does will hurt you.

The trailer shows Spawn shredding through Mortal Kombat mainstays with an arsenal of guns, swords, and axes. And of course his cape isn’t just there to look cool—it too will mess up your day. We haven’t had a new...

The Division 2: Warlords Of New York: The Kotaku Review

The Division 2: Warlords Of New York: The Kotaku Review

When The Division 2 launched last March, the cover-based shooter set in a wrecked Washington, DC was received positively by fans and critics. Then things soured. Players who expected a game that would expand over time were disappointed by a lack of new content as well as balance changes that nerfed popular character builds. Months after release, the game was fading. A year has now passed since...

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Gets A Knock-Off Tamagotchi

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Gets A Knock-Off Tamagotchi

Of all the things they could have added to Call of Duty, a Tamagotchi-style virtual pet is not one that I would ever have imagined. And yet, here we are. Call of Duty gets needy virtual pets in this week’s Modern Warfare store update, testing a player’s ability to multitask killing while caregiving.

The Call of Duty community was really hoping this week would bring official news or a trailer...

Dead or Alive 6 Is Charging Players To Change Hair Colour

Dead or Alive 6 Is Charging Players To Change Hair Colour

Well, here’s some bullshit: fighting game Dead or Alive 6 has, in a recent update, introduced a new form of microtransaction, in which players are charged real money to change a character’s hair colour. Then charged again to change it back.

The move went live in the recent 1.60 update, whose big deal was that it was going to allow for all kinds of customisation options, and is only an issue...

I Love The Garbage Children Of Fire Emblem's New DLC

I Love The Garbage Children Of Fire Emblem's New DLC

I’m just going to be upfront here and say that I never really enjoyed many of the characters in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. As such, my hopes for the secret fourth house introduced in the game’s first major expansion, Cindered Shadows, weren’t very high. But after taking a few hours to complete its isolated storyline, I was surprised to find myself finally invested in some of Three Houses’...

Dead Cells' Latest Expansion Makes A Good Thing So Much Better

Dead Cells' Latest Expansion Makes A Good Thing So Much Better

The only thing in Dead Cells’ latest expansion that gives me more pleasure than cleaving giant mutated fungi in half with a humongous scythe is having my own mushroomed companion fling itself at them with abandon and then explode upon impact.

In other words, I’m really enjoying Dead Cells’ new DLC, “Bad Seed.” Out today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, the $5 expansion brings even...

The First Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Was Definitely Worth It

The First Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Was Definitely Worth It

Earlier this week, Nintendo added a new fighter to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the company’s wildly popular Fire Emblem-themed fighting game.

Byleth, the player character from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, is the sixth new fighter to join the roster since Smash Ultimate’s December 2018 launch. Starting with Piranha Plant, in January 2019, Nintendo has rolled out new fighters every few months. For...

Five-Year-Old Batman: Arkham Knight Gets New Cosmetic DLC

Five-Year-Old Batman: Arkham Knight Gets New Cosmetic DLC

Rocksteady, a studio fans have been waiting to hear something, anything, from for eons, finally emerged from its cone of silence today, but not to say anything about a new game. Instead, it announced a sorta-new, sorta-not-new costume for 2015's Batman: Arkham Knight. If that sounds weirdly complicated to you, it’s because it is.

Today, developer Rocksteady announced that it’s adding the Earth...

The Week In Games: Here's Your Re Mind(er) About Kingdom Hearts III DLC

The Week In Games: Here's Your Re Mind(er) About Kingdom Hearts III DLC

This week one of the biggest releases is not actually a game, but instead some DLC for a game. The first big DLC is coming out this week for Kingdom Hearts 3.

Recently, we showed a friend who has almost zero knowledge of Kingdom Hearts some footage and trailers of Kingdom Hearts III. Her reaction was a mix of confusion and laughter. Maybe a bit of regret too. But it was fun to watch her watch...

Get Kills Or Go Kaboom In Modern Warfare’s New 'Cranked' Mode

Get Kills Or Go Kaboom In Modern Warfare’s New 'Cranked' Mode

Modern Warfare’s newest mode is a return to the fast-paced, addictive multiplayer we expect from Call of Duty. It forces players to move around for kills, or else go kaboom.

This week’s update for Modern Warfare added new Special Operation missions and more multiplayer maps, but the new mode, called Cranked, was by far the standout feature of the content drop.

Originally introduced by Infinity...

Borderlands 3's First Major Expansion Reminds Me How Much I Missed Handsome Jack

Borderlands 3's First Major Expansion Reminds Me How Much I Missed Handsome Jack

Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, the first of four major DLC expansions planned for Borderlands 3, is an odd duck with regard to the way it’s made me reconsider the game’s main campaign. While I very much enjoyed Borderlands 3 and believe this is a fun and necessary continuation of its looter-shooter adventure, the main villains and conflicts consistently felt like cheap detours...
