Bungie teases Destiny's House of Wolves in new video

Bungie has released a teaser for Destiny's second expansion just ahead of its official reveal tomorrow morning.

The expansion, House of Wolves, introduces at least one new social area (the Queen's Bay); new vendors; new weapons, armour, and gear; new story missions; three new competitive multiplayer maps; and a new cooperative Strike.

In the new footage are glimpses of what look like upgrades for existing Raid weapons and armour, along with a shot confirming that the Light level cap will be raised to at least 34.

The game's first expansion, The Dark Below, increased the limit from 30 to 32.

Tomorrow's livestream will be hosted by Bungie community manager Deej on the studio's Twitch channel. He’ll be joined by creative director Christopher Barrett and community member Gothalion.

COD: AW's next DLC brings Exo Grapple to multiplayer

The second DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on May 1.

Ascendance contains four new maps, a two-in-one directed energy light machine gun/shotgun called the OHM, and an OHM Werewolf custom variant.

It also brings the Exo Grapple ability to multiplayer, making it useable on all of Ascendance’s maps.

Finally, the pack adds the next episode in the Exo Zombies saga, which is called Infection. This time, the four Atlas employees (played by John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal) fight undead zombie hordes on the outskirts of an Atlas facility. There’s a slew of never-before-seen undead, a robust arsenal of new traps and armaments, and everyone's favorite fast food joint, Burgertown.

Here’s the maps breakdown, courtesy of Activision:

Modder unlocks moves of Mortal Kombat X DLC characters

A modder has managed to unlock several previously-unplayable Mortal Kombat X characters on the game’s PC version.

Known as XVermillion on YouTube and Reddit, the modder has shown how to play with some of the movesets – but not the character models – of Rain, Baraka, Tanya, and Sindel.

Those four characters are enemies in the game’s story mode but are not yet playable, with NeatherRealm possibly locking them out so they can be sold as DLC.
