DA: Inquisition gets epilogue DLC

DA: Inquisition gets epilogue DLC

The final piece of DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition is an epilogue that takes place two years after the main game.

According to BioWare, Trespasser explores what it's like to be a world-saving organisation when the world no longer needs saving. It's a chance to meet and talk with old friends, to uncover a new threat, and ultimately decide the fate of the Inquisition you worked so hard to build. It might just contain hints about the future of Thedas, too.

Trespasser is the third piece of story DLC BioWare has added to Inquisition, the other two being Jaws of Hakkon and The Descent. It will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on September 9.

BioWare also announced a patch targeting Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC that includes a couple of treats in addition to the usual fixes.

GTA V graphical mod makes a pretty game prettier

A new, unreleased graphical mod for Grand Theft Auto V threatens to unseat reigning graphical champ iCEnhancer.

Called Toddyhancer and developed by Martin Bergman, the mod uses "Reshade shaders, ENB series, simple tweaks, and some tonemapping" to make Los Santos look even prettier than it used to.

According to Bergman's FAQ, the enhanced graphics cut 10-30fps off performance in his testing experience.

GTAV's Rockstar Editor coming to PS4 and Xbox One

Grand Theft Auto V's Rockstar Editor will be coming to new-gen consoles in the next update, Rockstar has confirmed.

Tucked away in the winner announcement for the studio's Ill-Gotten Gains video competition, the reveal brings an extremely popular feature from the PC version to consoles.

On PC, the Rockstar Editor allows players to record, edit, and share videos from within GTAV, using features like image filters, camera controls, depth of field, and a Director Mode that gives up the game's entire cast for virtual moviemaking.

Metal Gear Solid 5 microtransactions still under question

Metal Gear Solid 5 microtransactions still under question

Questions still remain about the presence of microtransactions in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, despite some clarification from Konami.

The issue came up when Gamespot reported that MGS5's Forward Operating Base (FOB) multiplayer mode would cost MB Coins, an in-game currency purchased with real money.

FOB allows players to build a base and defend it against – or invade – other players online.

Konami strongly refuted the Gamespot report, saying it was "simply not true."

"The FOB mode will be fully accessible at launch and the micro-transaction layer to that specific feature in the game primarily acts as an accelerator."

Twitch fails to play Dark Souls

Twitch asked recently if its community could play legendarily difficult Dark Souls using only collective text input, and the answer appears to be "not really."

Nearly one hundred hours into the playthrough, the streaming platform's character is still stuck in the game's first area, Undead Asylum.

The stream, controlled by text commands inputted by players into Twitch chat, is a followup to similar experiments with simpler games.
