Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 9/30/13


“Batman: Arkham Origins'” upcoming Initiation DLC will move the game’s setting to Asia for an extra slice of origin story.

It’s the first time that the “Arkham” series has featured an environment outside Gotham, and the earliest playable sequence yet in the franchise’s canon.

Voghel also offered up details of the game’s I Am the Night mode, available after you complete the main game and New Game Plus.

The Eternal Darkness spiritual successor, Shadow of the Eternals, has been put ‘on hold’ following the failure of its second Kickstarter push.

Chief creative officer Denis Dyack made the announcement via the game’s forums, where he says “many” of the Precursor Games team will be “taking a break”.

Dyack goes on to insist the project is not completely cancelled. “We have all agreed as a group that when and if the time is right we will get together and start it up again,” he said.


“Dead Rising 3″ will boast procedurally generated zombies, meaning that no two zombies will ever look the same.

At a recent Xbox One event in Sydney, Capcom producer Mike Jones told CVG that next-gen technology has allowed the studio to achieve much that the Xbox 360 wasn’t capable of.

For example, while texture reuse in previous “Dead Rising” games was common, the open world in “Dead Rising 3″ is completely handcrafted.
