Monster Hunter: World Will Receive Free Post-Launch Monster DLC

Thanks to EA’s abuse of microtransactions and loot boxes, many gamers have become wary of AAA games and their publishers. We have become more vigilant in our search to uncover insidious ways to nickle and dime gamers to death, and many developers are taking notice. This includes Capcom, as its upcoming Monster Hunter: World will not only forego lootboxes, it will include free post-launch updates to keep the game alive.

During an interview with Famitsu (translation provided by Gematsu), producter Ryozo Tsujimoto made the following statement:

“We are thinking about free, post-launch updates for Monster Hunter: World. What I can specifically say is that we plan to new monsters and such in hopes that users play for a long time. As for what kind of monsters will be added and so on, information will be shared later on, so please look forward to it.”

This practice is not unusual for Capcom, as its Nintendo 3DS games Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate  and Monster Hunter Generations were supported well after their release dates with constant streams of DLC that continue even today. And yes, the DLC for these games is free. While some contain monsters, most include special missions and weapons/armors that reference other franchises. These include anime shows such as Yu-Gi-Oh! and Fairy Tail, the video games Okami and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and many more, emphasis on many. The Monster Hunter x Mega Man and Monster Hunter x Horizon Zero Dawn trailers demonstrate the quality of weapon/armor DLC we should expect in Monster Hunter: World and that some DLC will be exclusive to certain versions of the game — I now expect Halo DLC for the Xbox One version and World of Warcraft DLC for the PC version. But, the question remains: what kinds of monsters is Capcom planning to release post-launch? Will they be classic monsters from previous Monster Hunter games, monsters who are making their debut in Monster Hunter: World, or a decent helping of both? We will just have to wait patiently.

Monster Hunter: World is scheduled to release January 26th for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and at a later, unspecified date for PC. I look forward to Capcom turning the game into the must-have MMO and supporting it for years to come. Perhaps some other game companies can learn a thing or two from Capcom’s practices. Hint hint Activision, hint hint

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.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
