Dark Souls IIPS3, 360, PC
DLC consists of three additional chapters in the Lost Crowns Trilogy. Installments can be purchased individually or as part of a season pass.
Crown of the Sunken King
Official Description:Embark on a journey to reclaim a crown that Drangleic’s King Vendrick once owned. This perilous quest will lead you through an entirely different world within the Dark Souls II universe, where stepped pyramids span a vast underground cavern. It is said that one of the ancient crowns lay buried deep within these dark caverns; but surely such a valued item cannot sit unguarded. Explore in search of a crown that holds the strength of lords from times long past.
Game Informer's Take:"It provides 4-6 hours of additional content deep below the Black Gulch, giving players three new areas to explore. These new surroundings make particularly good use of vertical space, twisting environments, and deadly traps. Travel is exceptionally dangerous, since walls meshing together can throw off even expert players, leaving their exact location hard to pinpoint." – Daniel Tack
Crown of the Old Iron King
This DLC will be available August 26
Crown of the Ivory King
This DLC will be available September 24
Dead or Alive 5 UltimatePS3, 360
This game has an absolutely absurd amount of alternate costumes. We decided to filter our list down to just the new fighters.
Marie Rose: Systema is a military form of combat that emphasizes constant fluidity of movement. Marie Rose uses this and her small frame to her advantage to outmaneuver opponents with a variety of tricky moves.
Phase 4: Based on Kasumi’s Mugen Tenshin Ninjutsu with added improvements, the exact nature of which are highly classified. Every aspect of this human weapon is veiled in a black mist of secrecy.
Nyotengu: (Watch trailer) Her haunting beauty belies an incredible strength, which along with her ability to fly and attack from midair, makes her a formidable opponent. She practices Tengu-do, a unique Japanese martial art passed down since ancient times. This character will be available September 2
Dead Rising 3Xbox One, PC
On the Xbox One season pass, the first four DLC packs were bundled into The Untold Stories of Los Perdidos. In June, Super Ultra Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α was announced and released on the same day. It is not part of the season pass. All four of the untold stories will be included in the PC version of Dead Rising 3 when it releases on September 5.
Super Ultra Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α
Official Description:An all new 4-player co-op mode for Dead Rising 3! Cosplay as your favorite Capcom characters and use their special abilities to save Los Perdidos.
Game Informer's Take:"With the latest Dead Rising 3 DLC, the action is viewed through the CRT filter of an old arcade machine. Dead Rising 3: Super Ultra Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α is a winking romp through Capcom's back catalog that has charm to spare, but relies too much on the grind."—Jeff Cork
Diablo III: Reaper of SoulsPC
This Diablo III expansion released first on PC in March and is now available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and 360 as part of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition.
Official Description:The Prime Evil rages within the Black Soulstone, its essence screaming for vengeance and release. Before the artifact can be sealed away forever, Malthael – Angel of Death – manifests in the mortal realms with a deadly new purpose: to steal the Black Soulstone and bend its infernal power to his will. So begins the end of all things…
Game Informer's Take:"... One of the most significant turnarounds in gaming. Out of the ashes of a boring, auction house-centric grind comes a dynamic and addictive system that encourages grouping and rewards players with continual upgrades and challenges. Almost every facet that players rightly attacked in the original game has been refined and revamped, transforming the title into an enjoyable action/RPG experience." – Daniel Tack
Don’t StarvePS4, PC
Reign of Giants

Curse of Naxxramas (Watch us play)
Game Informer's Take"Naxxramas is an excellent addition to the core game, and an exploration of sorts to examine the potential for additional single-player Hearthstone content." – Daniel Tack
