Free update adds character variants and a new game mode to PvZ: Garden Warfare

A large free update is bringing new character variants and a new game mode coming to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare this week.

The Legends of the Lawn update introduces seven character variants to the multiplayer third-person shooter: Golf Star, Centurion, Paleontologist, Chomp Thing, Alien Flower, Jade Cactus, and Sanitation Expert.

The variants aren’t just visually distinct, each has unique abilities to bring to the battle.

The new game mode is called Taco Bandits, and is a Capture the Flag variant that challenges the Zombies to steal tacos from the defending Plants.

Finally, the update includes more than 200 new customisation items.

COD: Advanced Warfare preorders 50% down on COD: Ghosts – analyst

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare preorders are 50 percent behind those of last year’s Ghosts, according to a market research firm.

That puts preorders a whopping 80 percent behind those of 2012’s Black Ops II.

“We believe that the preorders need to accelerate significantly over the next few weeks, or else the evidence for meaningfully weaker performance by Advanced Warfare vs. Ghosts will, in our opinion, become too strong to rationalise,” said Cowen and Company analyst Doug Cruetz.

Destiny's Loot Cave nerfed with a hotfix

Bungie has released a hotfix that has reduced the effectiveness of farming Destiny's "loot cave", a cave in Skywatch, Old Russia, that spawned packs of Hive every six seconds.

"The Hive of the holy 'Treasure Cave' have realized the futility of their endless assault on Skywatch and have retired to lick their wounds and plan their next attack," said Bungie.

Now, packs of Hive will spawn every 40 seconds, instead of every six.

The Evil Within has scary PC system requirements

Bethesda has released some fairly hefty recommended PC specifications for upcoming survival horror The Evil Within.

The publisher hasn’t released minimum PC specs for the game however.

“These specifications are listed as “recommended” as they are the settings we’ve determined ensure that your gameplay experience plays as intended by the development team,” the company wrote on its official blog.

“We do not have a list of minimum requirements for the game. If you’re trying to play with a rig with settings below these requirements (you should plan to have 4 GBs of VRAM regardless), we cannot guarantee optimal performance.”

Metal Gear Solid V buddy system detailed

A buddy system in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain allows Snake to solicit help from sniper Quiet or a pooch called Diamond Dog.

As reported by VG24/7, the buddy system is entirely optional as each must be tracked down and befriended, and the spare seats in Snake’s chopper imply that up to four will feature in the game.

Each buddy offers side missions, but all – along with Snake’s horse – can be killed by the enemy.
