The latest DLC and expansions explored

Survival horror is in the midst of a semi-renaissance, with Resident Evil Revelations 2 doing the business and the series’ first game clocking up silly numbers of digital downloads upon its HD re-release. Looking for an excuse to jump back into Resi creator Shinji Mikami’s latest gore-fest, The Evil Within? Well lucky you, as The Assignment, the first of a two-part, story-based DLC pack, is out now.
It pops you in the clogs of Juli Kidman, and reveals some of the secrets surrounding her movements during the events of the main tale. Staying in the realm of horror, this time focusing on zombies and running away from them in style, there’s a fresh batch of Dying Light content. Alongside a free patch, which adds Hard Mode to the main campaign, comes an optional Ultimate Survivor Bundle. It comes as part of the Season Pass or as a standalone, and features new character outfits, such as the Ninja or the Special Agent, as well as weapon blueprints. Crikey, the scares just keep on coming, as Alien: Isolation gets another slice of gameextending love.

The Trigger is the fifth DLC pack to hit up Creative Assembly’s first-person xenomorph masterpiece, and features a new character, Sevestapol deputy marshal Ricardo, tasked with taking the alien down. We kind of know how that’ll end, huh? The Trigger will also give you three new survivor mode maps. It ain’t all blood and guts in this month’s DLC kitchen, as Sunset Overdrive has its last DLC pack baked and ready for chomping on, healthily dubbed Dawn Of The Rise Of The Fallen Machines. Expect extra missions and challenges alongside a new traversal tool, the Energy Ball Of Death. This powerful doo-dad will let you roll about town crunching all OD in your way.

Finally, for those of you exhausted by all this violence and keen to kick back with the musically minded Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, celebrate with a fresh batch of tracks. Tunes from the Chrono Trigger and FFX have been added, so you can get tapping to some forgotten classics. Frog’s Theme is in there, too, ribbing the dream.
