GamesRadar - PC Newshttp://www.gamesradar.com/pc/news/rss/enFri, 19 Dec 2014 08:43:43 -0800Far Cry 4&#39;s Escape from Durgesh Prison DLC arrives in Januaryhttp://www.gamesradar.com/far-cry-4-dlc/ <div> <img src="http://0519f170a2731643c0a9-ec45ee3cb118921cf5758d3a3db775b7.r83.cf1.rackcdn.com/69d74ee692b014cd314938aa0cbd1dca6215fdf0.png__846x0_q80.jpg"/> <caption><p> Far Cry 4's Escape from Durgesh Prison isn't content to throw a new weapon or ability your way and let you go to town on familiar enemies - y'know, the standard DLC shtick. Instead, it takes the opposite route: protagonist Ajay Ghale and his co-op buddy Hurk find themselves locked up in the eponymous prison, completely stripped of all their weaponry. But that's not the worst of it. With no friendly places to mend his wounds nearby, if Ajay gets taken out, he's done for. <p> That's right, Escape from Durgesh Prison introduces permadeath to the open-world shooter, meaning you'll have to play cautiously and learn from your mistakes if you're ever going to complete your grand exodus. It will release on January 13, 2015 as part of the $29.99/£23.99 season pass, or on its own for $9.99 (UK price TBA). The Season Pass also unlocks access to The Syringe single-player mission, a mini-campaign starring Hurk, and a new PvP multiplayer mode. But take heed, for it hides an abominable secret...</caption> </div> <div> <img src="http://0519f170a2731643c0a9-ec45ee3cb118921cf5758d3a3db775b7.r83.cf1.rackcdn.com/4194ea9103fa44f62b948a2ded215db6899a81dc.jpg__846x0_q80.jpg"/> <caption><p>Clearly, the developers are having some fun with this one. Valley of the Yetis has quite the involved backstory: our hero Ajay has crash-landed onto a Himalayan ridge, which from the sounds of it will be a much harsher, colder climate than Kyrat. You'll have to set up camp to survive, upgrading it with scavenged tools so that you can ward off crazy cultists at night (sounds like the snowy version of PC horror game The Forest). <p>Of course, if the name didn't give it away, this DLC sounds like it'll pit you against hordes of Yetis, like the one hilariously mimicking Pagan Min's signature box art pose above. I'm picturing something very similar to the Wampa scene in Empire Strikes Back. You can explore the Valley of the Yetis in single-player or co-op, though it's not clear how you'll see other players if you're playing as Ajay. Either way, this should be awesome.</caption> </div> <div> <img src="http://0519f170a2731643c0a9-ec45ee3cb118921cf5758d3a3db775b7.r83.cf1.rackcdn.com/c03af15436110eca576be5d1524fe5eefa687f39.jpg__846x0_q80.jpg"/> <caption><p>That's all the Far Cry 4 DLC we know about so far.

The new pack sees the ranger fight alongside dwarven hunter Torvin once more, this time to kill/terrify/brainwash a new breed of Uruk-hai captain called beastmasters. These leaders of orcs will ride into combat on Mordor's aggressive fauna, meaning that Talion isn't the only one who can wreak havoc on the back of a raging Graug - as you'll see in the new trailer below. <p>Speaking of Graugs, the Lord of the Hunt DLC adds a new venom-spewing variant called the Wretched Graug, as well as the hardy Caragaths and summonable Ghul Hordes - be sure to power them up with five new epic runes before you go rampaging. Aside from extra story missions, players can set out on Beast Hunting challenges to prove their prowess and earn more Mirian, or see how they compare in Test of the Wild with an online leaderboard. And they'll do it all in style with that macho-ponytail sporting character skin. Lord of the Hunt is rolling out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on its own or as the first part of the $24.99/£19.99 season pass.</caption> </div> <div> <img src="http://0519f170a2731643c0a9-ec45ee3cb118921cf5758d3a3db775b7.r83.cf1.rackcdn.com/8f8a53979596e213b66d3b03a8ad94e0a173681a.jpg__846x0_q80.jpg"/> <caption><p>Like a cunning drug dealer looking to get you hooked, <a href="http://www.gamesradar.com/middle-earth-shadow-mordor-review/" target="new">Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor</a> is giving you the first taste of its DLC content for free. If you own the game, you can now download the Power of Shadow DLC, which unlocks a new skin and three additional runes to play with. If you're wanting a change from the rugged good looks of Talion, you can get in touch with your evil side by equipping the Black Hand of Sauron skin (which must make some of the cutscenes look pretty damn weird). No word yet on if the skin changes your voice, but you should know that the Black Hand is played by Nolan North. Of course. <p>Then there are the three Epic Runes. One with Nature gives you immunity from poison, Ascendant grants you twice the slo-mo Focus when using your bow, and Elven Grace halves the damage of enemy strikes. Sounds like they could make Talion pretty OP--perfect for a second playthrough or the decimation of your greatest Nemesis.</caption> </div> <div> <img src="http://0519f170a2731643c0a9-ec45ee3cb118921cf5758d3a3db775b7.r83.cf1.rackcdn.com/6208a7f046934cc540dba99642ae662b5c88fe1e.jpg__846x0_q80.jpg"/> <caption><p>While we know Shadow of Mordor offers a Season Pass (like pretty much every game these days), it's not entirely clear what exactly it gets you. Here's what guaranteed: An exclusive Orc Warband mission called Guardians of the Flaming Eye, the Trials of War challenges (think the Batman: Arkham score attacks), and two additional story missions. These missions are Lord of the Hunt, where you seek out rare monsters throughout Mordor, and The Bright Lord, which lets you play as a certain Elf who is crucial to the main plot. <p>The ambiguous part is that the Season Pass also provides "access to future content," which could mean anything at this point. We'll be sure to update you when we know more.</caption> </div> <div> <img src="http://0519f170a2731643c0a9-ec45ee3cb118921cf5758d3a3db775b7.r83.cf1.rackcdn.com/0cc0032b5d553f8694002d2152e0a9202c1af0dc.jpg__846x0_q80.jpg"/> <caption><p>That's all the Shadow of Mordor DLC we know about so far.
