Explore the History of Hyrule’s Champions with The Champions’ Ballad DLC

The first bit of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC was The Master Trials, which included several new modes, armor, and upgrades for the Master Sword. It was not quite what we had in mind for the best Legend of Zelda game since Ocarina of Time, but The Champions’ Ballad serves to rectify that. And it’s available right now.

The four champions are at the heart of Breath of the Wild‘s story; they piloted the Divine Beasts, and their spirits roamed Hyrule for after they were killed by Calamity Ganon. They are also the focus of the new DLC The Champions’ Ballad (kinda obvious when you think about it, since “champion” is in the title); the DLC continues the story of Breath of the Wild by looking into the past and giving gamers a look at Hyrule before Calamity Ganon destroyed everything. Players will get to know what the champions Revali, Mipha, Daruk, and Urbosa were like before they had to pilot the Divine Beasts. Oh, the DLC will also shed more light on Link’s relationship King Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule and Princess Zelda.

Story isn’t the only feature of The Champions’ Ballad, though; it will also contain plenty of new shrines and dungeons, one of which appears to be nothing more than a sea of spikes. But you don’t care about shrines, do you? You want to know what new toys Link will get to play with in the DLC. Well, according to the trailer, he will receive several new armors, including Ravio’s hat, Zant’s helmet, Phantom Ganondorf’s (circa Ocarina of Time) armor, and a blue uniform I’m having trouble identifying. Oh, and horse armor. Don’t worry; this armor lets Link warp in his horse from anyone in Hyrule. Also, gamers who are tired of riding horses will obtain a special gift once they complete the DLC: a Divine Beast-esque motorcycle. And yes, it kinda looks similar to the one Link drives in Super Mario Kart 8.

Gamers who can’t wait to learn more about Hyrule’s champions will be pleased to hear The Champions’ Ballad DLC is available right now, so download it and lose yourself in Hyrule all over again.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

For individuals who may not recall, the Year 2000 Problem, commonly referred to as the Y2K scare, was a thrilling period of chaos experienced in the late 90s. There was widespread concern about a potential catastrophic computing disaster due to discrepancies in dating systems. Today, we had the opportunity to experience some unexpected events as EA and Square Enix faced technical difficulties due to the leap year, causing their games to be temporarily unplayable.

Players of EA’s Sports WRC encountered a problem on the 29th where they couldn’t start the game because of a timezone glitch. The issue was promptly fixed, but users had to adjust their system settings for the next day to play. Meanwhile, Square Enix is facing challenges, with the problem only impacting Nintendo players and not PlayStation users. The Theatrythm Final Bar Line failing to start up ruined the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In Helldivers 2, players will find themselves in need of additional firepower to spread freedom across the galaxy. Arrowhead Game Studios announced that armored mechs will be included in the game for free shortly after its release. Leaked gameplay footage on social media suggests that heavy armor support is on its way.

IGN showcased a few clips, with the first one being shared by Redditor fozzye18, featuring a Helldiver piloting a mech equipped with what appears to be twin-linked autocannons. It’s important to note that in another clip shared by Redditor Klyka, we witness a mech equipped with a gatling gun and rockets, hinting at the possibility of various strategy versions for these machines.

A clip from TikTok ponders the possibility of a different outcome at the famous Malevelon Creek, where the Helldivers community faced a significant defeat against the Socialist Automatons.

Mechs… enjoy

Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown will mandate an internet connection on the PS5

To fully experience Nacon’s upcoming social racer Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown, an Internet connection is required. The new trailer reveals the off-road areas of Hong Kong Island, highlighting the diverse experiences offered in the upcoming game. It also emphasizes the MMO features that have been integral to the franchise.

“While driving, there are always other players surrounding you, which brings the city to life,” a press release discloses. “In Test Drive Unlimited, players can immerse themselves in the world of cars through interactions at dealerships and workshops, discussing future purchases, dream cars, and customization options.”

Undoubtedly, there is a trade-off with the need for a constant online connection to support various social features such as leaderboards, races, inventories, moderation, live events, anti-cheat measures, and the overall game experience. You need an Internet connection to play Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown.

As expected for an online-focused game, players will need to rely on Nacon’s servers and PSN.

Nevertheless, it appears that the racing game is making significant progress. In a recent development update, the team highlighted their ongoing efforts to enhance the particle effects for off-road gameplay. They are currently facing challenges in recreating the expansive dust clouds seen in their WRC games within a shared-world sandbox environment. “We are currently in the process of integrating and optimizing these effects,” it concedes. “It is a crucial aspect of off-road immersion, yet it also demands a lot of resources and performance.”

It appears that the game is nearing its final stages. The team is taking their time to guarantee that Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown provides a seamless, stable, and enjoyable experience for players. It has been brought to our attention that we need to ensure the game meets your expectations before release. We are currently focused on improving various aspects, such as enhancing server stability and optimizing the game’s performance.
