Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 8/7/13

A ‘Game of the Year’ edition of “Dishonored” has been listed on the Australian Classification Board website, ahead of any official announcement from its publisher.

The board, which has a history of leaking titles before announcements, has rated the package MA15+ for “strong bloody violence”. No release date is indicated.

“Dishonored” has so far been serviced with two DLC packs in the form of Dunwall City Trials and The Knife of Dunwall. Additionally, the Void Walker’s Arsenal pack allowed access to content previously exclusive to pre-order purchases.


“Ocarina of Time” is still considered one of the best games of all time, no matter how many Nintendo consoles come and go. The game set many precedents not only for the series, but for video games as a whole. “Ocarina” had many surprising qualities, many of which materialized in what seemed to be a never ending series of secrets. While it’s no secret the game still continues to impress gamers even to this day, how fast do you think you could beat the game?

10 Hours? Less Than 5?

Well someone has done it in a mere 22 minutes.

Noted speed runner Cosmo Wright wowed everyone, when he showcased a strategy earlier this year in how he achieved such a feat.

“Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s” campaign will take 15-20 hours long. However, Ubisoft is hoping you spend much more time in the massive world they’ve created for the game.

“We don’t talk about it in terms of size, that would be a little bit unfair – there is a lot of ocean in the Caribbean. But it is the biggest game we’ve ever made,” game director Ashraf Ismail told Eurogamer.

“AC4’s” depiction of the Caribbean will take awhile to traverse. Ismail says that sailing from one end of the map to the other would be about a half-hour journey. Fortunately, you’ll be able to avoid save some time with an updated quick-travel system. The quick-travel in “AC4″ allows you to instantly warp to any sync-point you’ve found in the world. That should cut down on the monotonous commute to and from missions that plagued “Assassin’s Creed 3.”
