We learned a while back that Dark Souls III has at least two DLC packs planned for it, and yesterday Bandai Namco revealed what all the first pack would contain. If that text alone wasn't enough to get you hyped, however, maybe this official reveal trailer for the "Ashes of Ariandel" DLC will do the trick! While the trailer doesn't show off everything in the pack, we do see a variety of new weapons to use, spells to master, enemies to slay (or be slain by), and areas to explore in the eternal quest to git gud.

Microsoft recently announced that Quantum Break is coming to Steam on September 14th, and Xbox marketing boss, Aaron Greenberg, talked about the possibility of launching more PC titles on the digital store. Greenberg explained that Microsoft has always had a presence on Steam with titles such as Age of Empires and Alan Wake, and the reason they're releasing Quantum Break on Steam is to reach more fans and make the game more successful. However, he went on to say that Microsoft will only be launching games on Steam in the future "where they make sense," so it doesn't look like they plan on making all their games available on the store.

Last year, Humanature Studios took to Kickstarter to revive the classic SEGA-published franchise ToeJam and Earl. The newest entry in the series, ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove, borrows heavily from the original game (while also including elements from the sequel, Panic on Funkotron), and it's geared towards longtime fans. The game's first trailer was released today, revealing that Humanature has teamed up with Adult Swim Games (in addition to acquiring $500,000 in Kickstarter funds) to bring it to PC and consoles (no specific console is named) next year.

Yooka-Laylee is seen as a spiritual successor to Nintendo 64 hit Banjo-Kazooie, but the upcoming 3D platformer may also borrow from another classic Rare title. IGN went hands on with Yooka-Laylee for about an hour, and in their experience, its level of adult humor is actually closer to Conker's Bad Fur Day. Their brief playthrough included jokes about prejudices, reproduction, premature ejaculation, urinating, and more.

That said, from their descriptions, it sounds like the humor is more subtle than the controversial Conker's, and they made no mention of curse words being used. It sounds like Yooka-Laylee should still be a game that kids can play, but there are plenty of jokes meant for older audiences. You can check out the video by clicking below!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided finally released today, and it seems to be doing pretty well so far. If you happen to be one of the many players enjoying the newly released title, then you might be interested in the season pass associated with the game. As it so happens, Eidos and Square Enix released information detailing what is included in the DLC collection earlier this week alongside the general release date for unreleased packs. Two DLC Missions and a slew of upgrade items are just a few of the items that are up for grabs.

Sony fans have been enjoying the benefits of PlayStation Now for over a year, paying a fee to allow them to download and play a number of excellent games from past systems on Sony's hardware, but it looks like it won't be restricted to PlayStation hardware for much longer. A new announcement posted to the PlayStation Blog today reveals that the company is bringing the Now service, which holds a library of over 400 games and is constantly growing, to Windows PC. Alongside this announcement, they have also officially unveiled a USB wireless adapter for DualShock 4 controllers, which we first saw signs of a month ago.

It's already possible to setup DualShock 4 controllers on a PC (Screencheat is a prime example, supporting 4 controllers with no extra software), but it seems that an official solution may be on its way. A USB Adapter was recently listed on Amazon France for around $20 or €17.62. The only details provided were a possible September 15th release date and the fact that the wireless adapter was indeed from Sony for the PlayStation 4 platform. It's speculated that this device could allow easy linking to a PC without additional software or add extra Bluetooth devices to the PlayStation 4.

Of course, nothing is confirmed, but you can check out the listing here.

The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has spawned more than its fair share of internet memes over the years (hell, that's basically all their official Twitter account does), and one of the most famous is slapping "& Knuckles" onto the end of game titles, à la Sonic & Knuckles. This humorous reference has found its way into Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as a rather hilarious Easter Egg, but the full story actually goes back over a year. Hit the jump for more!

Blizzard Entertainment recently announced that they'd be releasing a new map for Overwatch, their incredibly popular team-based shooter. Eichenwald, a map consisting of a German castle and village, is now available to try out on the Public Test Realm. The map's medieval aesthetic reminds some of Dark Souls, so it's fitting that Blizzard has included a nod to the popular and punishing game franchise. A room within the castle contains a sword that has been thrust into a flaming mound, which is an obvious reference to the bonfires of Dark Souls. You can check out footage of the new map and the Easter Egg by clicking below!

The NPD Group has released its full report for the past month, highlighting hardware and software sales data in the US during July. With few major titles releasing during July, the software charts were dominated by evergreen titles. Grand Theft Auto V, which made its debut in 2013, was the number one game in the US for the month, and Monster Hunter Generations was the only July release to crack the top ten. The immensely popular Overwatch is listed at number two, but the NPD Group does not have access to sales, so it could potentially be the true champion.

Last year, fans who were looking forward to Silent Hills were saddened to learn that Konami subsequently cancelled the game, as part of an ongoing dispute with Hideo Kojima. Following the cancellation, an indie studio picked up the pieces and started working on their own Horror game inspired by it, called Allison Road. The developers initially went to Kickstarter for funding, then later cancelled the crowdfunding campaign and signed with publisher Team17, but after months of no updates, they announced that Allison Road had been cancelled.

Yet hope has been renewed, as, in a recent statement to IGN, Allison Road creator Christian Kesler announced that he is reviving that game under a new label called Far From Home. Read more after the jump!

A few weeks ago, Crystal Dynamics announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be getting some new DLC later this year, including a new story-based pack set within the mysterious Croft Manor. Lara's family home will be free to explore and investigate in the "Blood Ties" pack, though there will also be plenty of dangers lurking in the shadows for the Tomb Raider to face off against. Included in this pack is an alternate mode, "Lara's Nightmare," in which Lara must defend the manor from zombie hordes. A new trailer was released this morning to show off both of these modes, so make the jump to check it out!

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is getting an open beta, as announced by the game's publisher, Bandai Namco. Details for the beta have not been disclosed yet, however, we do know that the new hub area, Conton City, will be explorable. The city is seven times larger than the hub of the previous installment and is where players will attain quests and different items.
