Pack your bags, because you’re headed to Paradise – the new home for Warzone Pacific known as Caldera, kicking off on December 8th. Call of Duty: Vanguard owners will receive 24 hours of exclusive access to Caldera, the brand-new Warzone Pacific map that was built on learnings from the community. Featuring a dedicated Playlist with new vehicles and Vanguard weapons, Warzone Pacific’s first season kicks off another year of free content comprised of 15 areas to explore and fight across. In order for Vanguard players to access Warzone Pacific 24 hours early, they need to have played at least one Vanguard Multiplayer game.

As part of the Season One update, Ricochet Anti-Cheat will deploy a new, internally developed kernel-level driver on PC to assist in identifying cheaters in Warzone. This will allow players to focus more on the new offerings in Warzone Pacific as Ricochet fights unfair play with its new anti-cheat security initiative. This kernel-level driver is coming first to Warzone and will be required for all PC players as of this update.

Caldera and Warzone Pacific are just the beginning for the free content to be offered in Season One of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone. Stay tuned for additional intel about two free functional weapons, new Operator, Zombies content, Multiplayer modes and two maps all launching on December 8th, including a Pacific-inspired take on a fan-favorite Call of Duty map.

Marvel’s Avengers Update Adds New Klaw Raid and PS-Exclusive Hero Spider-Man

Today, Square Enix announced that Marvel’s Avengers patch 2.2 is now available, bringing with it an entirely new four-player Raid to take on the villain Klaw as well as a new Hero exclusive to PlayStation, Spider-Man.

In addition to the Raid and Hero, the update brings with it several new and improved systems, including:

  • Shipments – The Shipments feature provides an entirely new path to earn cosmetics, resources, and other items strictly through gameplay, a highly requested option from the community. Each Shipment costs 500 Units (the currency earned while playing the game) and pulls from a collection of nearly 250 possible items, with a small chance of rewarding a premium Outfit unavailable via any other means of acquisition. But luck isn’t required to get the Outfit; players will automatically receive it after claiming 100 Shipments.
  • Power-Level Increase – The maximum Power Level achievable has increased from 150 to 175. Acquiring the best gear requires players to complete the game’s toughest challenge: the new four-player Klaw Raid: Discordant Sound on Elite mode, its hardest difficulty level.
  • Gear Upgrading – Players can now recycle gear of a higher power level to upgrade their current gear to match the higher-power level of the consumed item, with few exceptions.

Dead Cells: The Queen & The Sea DLC Coming Early 2022 for PC and Consoles

Motion Twin and Evil Empire released a teaser trailer today for Dead Cells’ next DLC, The Queen & The Sea, which will hit PC and consoles early next year. The coming DLC promises an ending to the route that the two previous DLCs started with The Bad Seed and Fatal Falls. Priced at $4.99 USD, the new DLC will offer the most generous content update yet for Dead Cells.

Today’s new teaser trailer reveals a sneak peek of Dead Cells: The Queen & The Sea, including two new biomes with a twist: one won’t be the standard-issue Dead Cells level that you’re used to… and if you make it through this new kind of challenge, there will be a totally new ending to the game waiting for you unless you can’t defeat the all-new alternative final boss: the Queen.
