Who's ready to go on a prison break? Ubisoft announced earlier today that Far Cry 4's newest DLC pack, "Escape From Durgresh Prison", will be available for download on January 13th and will include racing across Kyrat to finish challenges and recover lost weapons, as well as upgrade armor and weapons in both single player and multiplayer mode. The most interesting inclusion in this DLC pack is the permanent death system, meaning if you die in the mission you will have to start from the very beginning of it.

Escape From Durgresh Prison was previously announced as part of Far Cry 4's Season Pass, and the Pass includes the exclusive DLC The Syringe, as well as giving buyers access to multiple add on missions. The Far Cry 4 Season Pass is priced at $30, but you can still pick up Escape From Durgresh Prision for $10.

For those of you out there with a modded console looking to jump on the Destiny bandwagon, you may be out of luck. Over the past week, Bungie has been dropping the banhammer hard on players logging into their system through modded consoles, and they are warning other players not to make the same mistake. Those who disregard the warning risk having their usernames permanently banned from the Destiny system.

Bungie released a statement on their site the other day, saying:

"We routinely review Banhammer actions to ensure that they are applied accurately and fairly. A review of the bans applied over the last week shows that all of the affected accounts had logged into Destiny on a modified console at some point."
