Borderlands 2: Psycho Pack

Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC

Vault Hunters may be interested in hitching a ride back to the wilds of Pandora with this new piece of character DLC. The Psycho Pack will introduce a Psycho Bandit character named Krieg to the mix. Much like the name implies, Krieg will bring a touch of madness to Borderlands 2's roster with his multiple personalities, buzz axe weapon, and brutal melee skills. Krieg's skill tree will let players choose between buying upgrades in the Bloodlust tree, where combat perks can be stacked; the Hellborn tree, allowing Krieg to set fire to both his foes and himself; and the Mania tree, which makes creative use of Krieg's off-kilter personalities.

Spartacus Legends

Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360

THIS...IS...SPARTAAAAA-cus Legends, the free-to-play fighter based on the STARZ television series. As in the show, players will be treated to a no-holds bar depiction of gladiator combat either as Spartacus, Crixus, or their own user-created character. The game will embrace the freemium model, allowing players to engage friends and foes across the world in battles while building their character's might through training, skill upgrades, and the acquisition of better gear.

Tomb Raider: Shipwrecked Multiplayer Pack

Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC

Delve back into Tomb Raider's multiplayer mode with this new DLC map pack from Crystal Dynamics. A follow-up to April's 1939 DLC release, the Shipwrecked Map Pack will extend Lara Croft's online adventures with two new maps. These include The Lost Fleet, set amidst a derelict ship; and Himiko's Cradle, which takes place inside an ancient mountains shrine. Still haven't played the Tomb Raider reboot?
