We are standing at the very beginning of 2018, and it already looks like this year is going to be a great year for the gaming community. There are a lot of big gaming titles coming out this year, on all platforms, and as I’ve said this is going to be a promising year. I just hope that the developers are not going to make the same mistake as EA did with their title, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, so we could have a year to remember.
As I’ve already mentioned, there are a lot of new gaming titles releasing this year, but there are also big plans for already known game titles to receive big DLC this year.
First on the list is Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The developers behind this action-adventure first-person shooter video game, MachineGames, have already announced their DLC plans with the release of The Freedom Chronicles Season Pass last year. This DLC pack features three packs, the Adventured of Gunslinger Joe, which is already released, then we have The Diaries of Agent Silent Death, launching on January 30 and The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins, coming sometime in March.
Here are the details of what each of the upcoming packs features:
- The Diaries of Agent Silent Death – Featuring ex-OSS agent and assassin Jessica Valiant, available January 30.
- The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins – Featuring Captain Gerald Wilkins on his mission to Alaska, available March 2018.
Next game on the list to get big DLC is Call of Duty: WWII. The game will receive a big DLC on January 30 and sometime in February. The reason is PS4 players will be the first to get this DLC, and then one month later, sometime in February, Xbox One and PC players will have a chance to get The Resistance. This DLC feature new War Mode mission, three new maps and a Zombie chapter.
Here are the details as described by Activision:
New War Mode
- “Outside of St. Lo, France, our next War Mode experience leads us on an urban rescue mission to save Resistance fighters being transported by train. The first objective on the Allied side is freeing the fighters, followed by the destruction of key communication equipment, and ending with stopping a train.”
Based in Prague, Czechoslovakia, this map is inspired by Operation Anthropoid, the famous assassination attempt on a high-ranking German officer during World War II. This map features a center lane divided by a river, with long-flanking paths that can be used by snipers for ranged attacks.
In this remake of the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer map Resistance, players battle through the streets and shops of German-occupied Paris during WWII. Long side streets encourage mid-range combat, with nearby homes and storefronts lending defensive positions for ambush and recovery.
Located in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, this map was inspired by The Wolf’s Lair, Hitler’s Eastern-front headquarters during Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. This is a medium-sized map with gameplay focused on a dangerous center lane covered by multiple overwatch positions and mounted machine guns.
Co-op New Chapter The Darkest Shore
- “The Darkest Shore follows our heroes into the next chapter of their dangerous journey. Only days after the horrific disaster of Mittelburg, the crew has received intel that suggests Doktor Straub is on an island just north of Germany. Blanketed in fog, this island is surrounded by Nazi air and sea power – and crawling with the Undead. Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson will need to battle all this and more to uncover the mysteries hidden within the Darkest Shore.”
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is next on the list. Similar to Wolfenstein 2, Ubisoft have already announced their DLC plans. This DLC is part of the South Park: The Fractured But Whole Season Pass, and features three DLC, one of which is already launched previous month, December 2017.
- First DLC, already available, is the “Danger Deck.” In this pack, players will face the ultimate combat challenge in Doctor Timothy’s Danger Deck and unlock exclusive content.
- The second DLC called “From Dusk till Casa Bonita,” is coming to the game in 2018. This DLC will feature a new story where the players join forces and fight against the demonic presence at Casa Bonita.
- The last DLC is coming in 2018 and its called “Bring the Crunch.” This pack will bring new superhero class and a new story.
These are the top 3 video game titles to receive big DLC this. to be honest, I expect to see other big DLC announcements for Destiny 2, FFXV and Overwatch this year, and until an official statement, subscribe to us and get the latest gaming news.
