Episode 1 – DC Outskirts: Expeditions expands the world of The Division 2 by taking you outside of the city streets of Washington DC to new locations, like Camp White Oak, Manning National Zoo, and Kenly College.
Episode 1 will add two new Main Missions, Classified Assignments, the new Expedition activity and above all else – a complete rework of the Skill Performance. The Operation Dark Hours raid will become more accessible with a new Discovery Difficulty and your arsenal will get expanded by two new exotics and two new regular weapons.
The fight for Washington, DC has been raging for months in The Division 2, and over the next year, three free episodes will expand the battleground significantly. These new episodes will introduce new areas, modes, rewards, Specializations, and exotic gear and weapons as Agents face new challenges.
The first big DLC of the Year 1 Roadmap is about to drop and it is the first chapter of a journey beyond Washington D.C. to save an entire nation:
Episode 1 D.C. Outskirts
=> Episode 1
Episode 1 D.C. Outskirts will take Agents outside of the city proper for the first time to explore the surrounding areas and woodlands as they hunt for President Ellis and Emeline Shaw, the leader of the Outcasts.
Return to the award-winning shooter-looter Borderlands 2 for an all-new adventure that sets the stage for the upcoming Borderlands 3. Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary is available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and is free for owners of Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Handsome Collection until July 8.
Joining the fight together with the other Specialists, The Gunner is equipped with the powerful Minigun, which will be a force to be reckoned with on the streets of Washington, D.C. With an emphasis on sustained damage output and damage resilience, the Gunner will serve as the vanguard of SHD Agents in the ongoing fight to reclaim the city.
When activated, The Gunner receive bonus armour based on the amount of Specialization ammunition they are carrying and can easily tank incoming damage for short periods of time while using their Minigun to suppress their enemies. There's a catch though – when the weapon is drawn, the Gunner can't enter cover, vault or roll.
To get enemies out in the open, the Gunner comes with the Banshee Signature Skill, which ignores cover and causes its targets to become confused. When an enemy stumble out of cover is the perfect opportunity for the Gunner to use their special...

"Steep will be free to download via Uplay between May 16 and May 21, giving players who don’t already own the PC version the chance to hit its open-world slopes at no cost, and experience what more than two years of updates and improvements have brought to its extreme winter-sports playground.

"Title Update 3: Operation Dark Hours" is another milestone in The Divisions 2 Year 1 Roadmap. It is the addition of the first 8 player raid in the history of The Division - but it is also a lot more. In general, it is also a re-alignment and balance pass that affects the NPCs, the talents, the weapons, the gear and some big adjustments to the PVP content. The normalization was reworked, new PVP modifiers were introduced and there were also major adjustments to the Dark Zones. Besides that, it should also help you in your gearing up process, make crafting more viable and also provide you with more ways to accumulate blueprints.
Check out the patch notes linked below for the more detailed balancing adjustments, so that you know what you can expect once you start the game. Keep in mind, while the damage output...

A listing for what appears to be the next Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon game leaked through Ubisoft’s own online store earlier today. Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the game’s name. The release date is said to be Oct. 4, for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Electronic Arts acknowledged during its Q4 2019 financial results conference call that Anthem, which it expected to be one of its biggest releases of the year, did not live up to expectations. Despite all its problems, EA reaffirmed support for both the game and developer BioWare, but it also said that the experience has led it to realize that it needs to start handling large, live-service game releases differently than it has in the past.
"The reality is, it's not just an EA challenge, it's an industry-wide challenge," CEO Andrew Wilson said during the call, referencing the difficulties of creating and operating large-scale open-world games like Anthem. "You're moving from what was initially a BioWare game which would be somewhere between 40 and 80 hours of offline play to 40 to 80 hours of offline play plus 100 or 200, 300 hours of...
Ubisoft has a Ghost Recon Wildlands based announcement scheduled for May 9th. The announcement is associated with a site called "Ghost Recon Wildlands Skell Technology". Seems pretty different from Bolivia so could this be Wildlands 2?
Epic has been eating Steam's lunch recently, having signed a number of high profile exclusivity deals with publishers. The terms Epic offers to publishers are significantly better than what they can get with Steam and even now, Steam seems unwilling to consider modifying their terms. The article below from Eurogamer goes into detail about the revenue share details currently offered by Epic and Steam.
The 88 per cent figure is the current amount the Epic Games Store gives to developers and publishers, with the store itself taking the remaining 12 per cent of the revenue. Steam currently offers developers a tiered revenue split, the lowest being a 70 per cent share for games selling under $10m. Titles that hit the $10m mark get a 75/25 split, while the really big blockbusters that sell over $50m allow developers to keep...

Tidal Basin Stronghold
With this update, the Black Tusk Stronghold Tidal Basin is unlocked. It is the last of the four Strongholds that need to be conquered to progress to World Tier 5.
Tidal Basin is a military base and in contrast to other “real world places” it has been constructed with the goal “How would a high-tech faction set up a base to make it defensible” in mind. That makes it very different from other missions/strongholds because it is in essence one big testing ground for the Agent that will throw everything it has at you to stop you from completing your mission. Overall the Stronghold has approx. the same size than Roosevelt Island but it will also be very challenging.

Once you have completed the Tidal...
