Lots of us more frugal/miserly cheap-ass Ego gamers have been reluctant to dive into the next-gen consoles. I say ‘next;' next-gen became current-gen a long damn time ago. Some of us still aren't assed, and why? Well, all sorts of reasons.
Maybe we're PC gamers. Maybe that Thai bride and her alimony have our cash all tied up until 2049 or so. Or maybe, just maybe, we've been waiting for Microsoft and Sony to get their shit together and bring some unmissable exclusives to the new platforms.
It took freaking long enough, but things have been happening on that front of late. Over Microsoft way, no release has been bigger than Halo 5: Guardians, the latest in a renowned line of spacetastic shooters. Was it enough to finally convince you to get in on the action and buy an Xbox One? It was for a lot of us, judging by the game's ballbusting success.
Initial sales are all very well, but you've also got to keep those players interested. Keep the whole thing fresh. And you know what that means for any AAA release: It's DLC time.
Guardians, natch, is going to be bringing us a heaping helping of extra content. As IGN reports, hints to what'll be on offer in the first pack were seen at the end of the latest Halo 5 livestream:
‘…the studio provides an early glimpse at new armor, weapon skins, and a whole lot more… In addition to what appears to be the iconic M41 SSR Rocket Launcher, we also get a glimpse at the Mark IV helmet, black and gold weapon skins, and even a new space-themed setting, presumably for use in Forge,' they say.
That's all we know so far. Take an ogle at the livestream in question right here:
