Payday 2 DLC finds out: Five packs planned, updates will include free content

Developer Overkill Software has pledged its on-going support for the recently released mask-wearing money-grabber, Payday 2. The studio’s Game Director, David Goldfarb, told Joystiq there are “Five DLCs planned together with [publisher] 505 Games for the coming year,” and that updates would be a mix of paid and free content.

One possible update for Payday 2 could be the addition of a non-male crew member, with Goldfarb telling OXM in an interview that “one of the first things I have on my list, is to make sure we get a female character. I’m hoping – I don’t know if we’ll get it as our first DLC, because we’d have to redo all the animations so it doesn’t look like a dude walking around with a female body… But I’d like to do that.”

A free demo is also available if you want to give it a try before you, know, buy. More details after you take a minute to watch this new trailer:

As you can see, the action is lovingly old school, with the little crash-landed spaceman dude kitted out with a jetpack, grapple hook, weapons, and power-ups. His mission is search and rescue – he has to find his missing crewmates, all while avoiding/blasting the aliens which probably want to liquidise his brains or something nasty like that.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 double XP weekend starts today

DLCentral Latest News Update

To get you all geared up for the Vengeance DLC pack, Treyarch has flipped the switch to allow double XP on all Black Ops 2 multiplayer modes this weekend. It starts today on June 28th (10am PST/6pm GMT) and ends July 1st (10am PST/6pm GMT) and you can drink it in on the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.


If you’re unfamiliar with this kind of event, let us explain. Every action you perform in Black Ops 2 multiplayer is rewarded with XP (eXperience Points), which gives you access to bigger and badder weapons and perks. If you play during the double XP you’ll grab extra points and level up quicker to open more of that deadly arsenal on offer. Easy.

In theory, Xbox 360 players should be fully boosted for the Vengeance DLC launch, which happens the day after the double XP weekend closes. Here’s what you can expect……

Super Mario 3D World

‎‎Neither the ad nor the subsequent test during the Nintendo Direct on the showfloor impressed us, leaving us instead the feel of a “minor” episode voted more three-dimensional to the declination in New Super Mario multiplayer formula Bros. that the fulfillment of the desire to single player “the Galaxy” that many fans were trying. Nevertheless, a partial excuse, that the House of Kyoto took its: before choosing to abandon the “feast” of the classic La-based Conference in favor of a more concise and sober Direct, then install demo not able to give the perspective of the real value of Super Mario 3D World. But, looking at the glass half full, it is also true that in this manner we throughly enjoyed the pleasure of discovery, enthusiasm across the total reversal of the convictions that we have grasped the GamePad for the first time, addressing the 1-1 level, without imagining what would have been the beginning of an amazing journey …

Need for Speed Rivals

The review there evening seemed too short to take home a complete article, so we decided to wait for the arrival of the game before you write a critique. This opinion is also shared by colleagues present with us at the event.‎
‎The game was not slow to arrive but, for obvious reasons, that it was a PC version. So we threw our headlong on the game and the surprise was pretty big: on balance, the five hours of gameplay in London there would be enough to write a review. Because, ‎‎as we wrote in the review dedicated to the PC version‎‎, Need for Speed: Rivals after a couple of hours reveals all his cards, and he leaves us on a terrible feeling of emptiness.‎
‎Lucky for us, these issues are completely blown away by the
