Black Ops 2 DLC: New weapon camo packs confirmed, coming next week

Looks like there’s a selection of new Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC on the way in the shape of more weapon Personalization Packs. The latest Xbox Live Marketplace update from Major Nelson lists six new packs – Aqua, Pack-A-Punch, Rogue, Breach, Desert Coyote, and Glam – each priced 160MSP (£1.37/ €1.92/$2), and scheduled for release next Tuesday, 23 July.

Unfortunately there are no additional details, but we’ve contacted Call of Duty publisher Activision in the hope it might be able to enlighten us with information, or even provide us with some pics of the new gun skins. As soon as we hear something back, we’ll update this story.

There are already 11 Personalization Packs available, with the nine originals, which include Zombies, Bacon, and Graffiti themes, later joined by Cyborg and Dragon camos following a community vote. The Personalization Packs contain themed weapon camo, reticles, and Calling Card.

We expect the new packs will be available as a …

Forza Horizon: Rally Pack DLC Review

Arcade racer takes a hard right into uncharted territory

The open-world freedom of the excellent Forza Horizon takes a more linear route with this rally expansion. Instead of screeching through traffic in one of the many hot rides across a beautiful Colorado, you’re funneled down dirt tracks with a co-driver barking out instructions.

There’s a whiff of the Colin McRae’s about it, which is unsurprising seeing as a few of the developers worked on the series before heading to Playground Games. The arcade smooth controls are fully intact, but the difference between topping the podium and watching on with tears in your eyes will require excellent reflexes. Or, y’know, an overuse of the rewind function.

Your mission is straightforward enough – gain enough points from the individual rally events to grab your place in the final. There are five new cars to bomb about in that will keep rally purists happy including the 1992 Ford Escort Cosworth and the ‘Group …
