Futuristic DLC is Coming to Just Cause 3

The Just Cause series is renowned for its destructible environments and huge open world which allows the player to become involved in an assortment of mission types. On another note. Avalanche Studios gained a reputation for being a PC focused developer and ensures their games scale properly across a wide range of hardware configurations. The latest entry in the series, is quite similar to Just Cause 2, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It also features a graphical boost and looks superb on maximum details. Now that the game has been out for a little while, the studio has almost finished work on a futuristic DLC pack entitled, Sky Fortress.

Tobias Andersson, Senior Producer at Avalanche Studios described the upcoming DLC and said:

“If Just Cause 3 is over-the-top action then the Air, Land and Sea Expansion pass aims to stand on its shoulders and reach even higher,”

“An incredible amount of time has been spent ensuring every new item is fully integrated into the main game and can be used during existing missions. Rico’s new Bavarium Wingsuit will fundamentally alter the core gameplay of Just Cause 3 and we can’t wait to see the crazy stunts that players perform with it.”

This is an interesting departure from the Just Cause 3 setting and reminds me of iconic science-fiction shows. Clearly, it’s designed to offer something different and should encourage players to return to Just Cause 3. Personally, I haven’t played Just Cause 3 and waiting for a significant discount. Despite this, it’s received positive reviews and should meet your expectations providing you’re not expecting a huge leap from its predecessor.

The latest content pack includes new missions, challenges, the “Bavarium Splitter” assault rifle and a personal defence drone, all of which can be carried over into the main game. Coming in March 2016, Air, Land and Sea Expansion Pass owners can pick up the Sky Fortress Expansion Pack 7 days early on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Advent Sci-Fi Game Teased by 2K.

2K, the people behind Bioshock, have tweeted an obscure reveal of what looks to be a new game. Of course at this point it could be anything, but the safe money is on it being a game.

So what is this Advent? From the look of the images that have been released and the quite informative in-world website, it looks to be a futuristic city. One that you wouldn’t be shocked to see Rick Deckard running amok in.

On the website there is a pamphlet that details the Advent gene therapy that apparently has saved millions, boasting a world without illness or pain. So what else could it be other than a George Orwell inspired, too good to be true, futuristic dystopia.

The website, tweet and pamphlet all leave a lot to the imagination, but there are theories out there that this could be the new X-COM game. Or more probable, the universe that follows on from Rapture and Columbia in the Bioshock series. This could all be wrong, as internet theories usually are, and be a new IP for 2K. What look to be a screen shot of the in game world don’t look to me as sequels to either of the aforementioned games, it looks more like a Sim City style game. All this is conjecture, it’s only one little glimpse of an otherwise mysterious thing. I’m sure the internet will be rife with more theories about what this new game is, but the only true way is to wait and see what 2K has in store for us.

3D-Printed Violin Looks out of This World

The 3D-printed two-string violin by MONAD Studios might look like something that could decapitate you, but it most likely won’t. It is however a pretty impressive printing result and the two-string piezoelectric violin will be on display at the 3D Print Design Show in New York on April 16 and 17.

The pictured instrument is only one of four music instruments that were created by MONAD and all will be played by a rotating cast of musicians at the expo.

“Our desire to create unusual instruments emerged when we realised the aesthetic and technical issues we were facing as architects did not differ much from those of musicians and composers,” said MONAD Studio’s Eric Goldemberg to the BBC.

The instruments might look weird, but every musician should be able to play them according to the studio. The sound is said to be more or less like the classical versions, but with a character of their own. Like a Les Paul electric guitar compares to a classical guitar: Both have the same sense of sound, but still different.
