Dragon Ball Xenoverse

The highly anticipated new DLC pack for Dragon Ball Xenoverse, the fighting game based on the series released earlier this year on consoles and PC in all regions, has finally received a release date for North America and Europe as well as a few screenshots showcasing the new characters yesterday. Now, more promotional material on the new release has been made available.

Some additional Dragon Ball Xenoverse third DLC pack screenshots have surfaced online a few hours ago, showcasing not only the new characters included in the game but also some of the new special moves that can be used by the custom created characters and more. You can find the screenshots by going here.

The third Dragon Ball Xenoverse DLC pack will be released next week, on June 9th, in all regions and all formats. It will include four new playable characters – Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta, Golden Frieza and Jaco the Galactic Patroller -, 5 new Parallel Quests, 2 new Masters, 8 new Masters Quests, 14 new special moves, 2 new Accessories and 7 Z-Souls which can be used to customize your avatar in the game. The pack was also going to include some extra costumes inspired by the Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection “F” but they have already been made available for everyone last month.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is one of the more unique games based on the popular manga and anime series. Instead of following the original storyline closely, the game features a brand new story where players have to take part in several important events of the Dragon Ball universe and make sure that they do not get altered by the enemy. These alternative scenarios make the game’s story quite interesting even for those who have been following the series for years and know everything about it.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The new DLC pack will be released on June 9th on Xbox Live, Steam and North American PlayStation Network, with the European PlayStation Network release coming the following day.

Are you eagerly anticipating what Absurd Ventures has in store for us in the coming years

Activision has recently announced the establishment of a new studio, Elsewhere Entertainment, located in Warsaw. The studio has been entrusted with the exciting challenge of creating a groundbreaking AAA franchise that will captivate players with its immersive storytelling and innovative gameplay. A significant number of employees were let go by the large corporation after the completion of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard King earlier this year.

According to IGN, Activision made the announcement in a blog post, sharing that the team will be based in Poland with additional resources in the US. The studio has assembled a team of highly skilled individuals who have worked on acclaimed titles such as The Last of Us, Uncharted, The Witcher, Destiny, Far Cry, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Activision’s response to IGN’s request for a studio logo or official artwork was rather unconventional. Instead of providing the requested materials, they sent over the Cambridge University dictionary definition of the word “elsewhere.”. However, with a discerning eye, one may catch a glimpse of something lurking in the background. The publication acknowledges that, whatever it may be, it has no connection to Call of Duty. Elsewhere Entertainment has been granted full access to Activision’s extensive resources and cutting-edge tools, enabling them to further enhance their production and development capabilities. We may have to wait a while before we find out what they have in store for us.

Curious about Activision’s latest venture, Elsewhere Entertainment? Opening a new studio after numerous layoffs—is it a tasteless move or simply another harsh reality of the video game industry? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Last year, we reported that Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser had launched a new studio called Absurd Ventures, with the aim of developing original IP for all platforms and formats. The new outfit has recently started development on a game that boasts top-notch combat and third-person action in a variety of game modes.

This information is available, as Eurogamer discovered, from a recent job listing on the developer’s website. The company is looking for more people to join their team and contribute to an “open-world action-adventure game.”. According to Eurogamer, it seems that the project they are working on is still in its early stages. They are currently in the process of hiring for important positions like lead designer, lead gameplay designer, art director, and technical director.

Absurd Venture is dedicated to crafting immersive narrative experiences across a wide range of mediums, such as games, animation, books, graphic novels, live-action, and scripted podcasts. Their mission is to create captivating worlds, compelling characters, and engaging stories that span diverse genres. The former vice president of writing at Rockstar, who co-wrote both Red Dead Redemption games, has recently joined the studio. Additionally, Lazlow Jones, a former writer and producer at Rockstar, has also come on board.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows, the physical version, requires an online connection for installation

Players who choose to go with a physical copy of the recently announced Assassin’s Creed Shadows will need an Internet connection in order to finish the installation. This is unlikely to pose a problem for most Ubisoft fans, but it does align with a trend that is worth mentioning. It follows a requirement that was initially introduced in 2023’s Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and will also be the case with the upcoming Star Wars Outlaws.

As reported by VGC, pre-orders for the game are now available, and a notice on the front box art at retailers such as Best Buy and GameStop states: “Internet connection is necessary for game installation.” For Avatar, players had to install a day-one patch before being able to start the game. However, both Shadows and Outlaws come with a warning prominently displayed on the front of the box.

The lack of a clear explanation for this requirement raises concerns about the long-term preservation of the game, particularly if the servers are eventually shut down. In December, Ubisoft made the decision to delist the original The Crew, effectively ending its run. This unfortunate event may not be the last time we see a game meet a similar fate.

What are your thoughts on Ubisoft’s requirement of an online connection for the installation of its flagship games? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
