Assassin's Creed Origins DLC Coming Real Soon...

It feels like Assassin's Creed: Origins just came out a couple weeks ago, but it seems it's been released long enough for Ubisoft to kick out its first DLC expansion. This new expansion, The HIdden Ones, is set to release on January 23rd (this coming Tuesday as of when I write this). It is set to take place four years after the main story, and with it comes four legendary weapons, a bunch of new armor/outfits, some new mounts, and the max level is raised up to 45. This expansion revolves mainly around a rivalry between the newly formed Brotherhood of Assassins and the Romans in Sinai. This DLC is set to be priced at $10, obviously included for those with the season pass.

In addition to all this, Ubisoft has also revealed a release date, name, and price for their second expansion. It is set to release March 6th for around $20 and is to be called Curse of the Pharaohs. The only other information on this expansion at the moment is it is about an ancient curse that has been going around Thebes.

That's all I got for now, will be giving some more info on all this as more is known. See ya next time...

Nexus Giving Back to the Modders...

Nexus Mods, one of the biggest centralized location for PC Mods, has announced a new feature they will be adding. This feature, designed to help modders, gives a little "inspiration" to make higher quality mods. The feature is a new donation system designed to help support modders. Basically how the system works is, Nexus starts with a pot of cash, people donating will have their money put into that same pot, and after a pre-designated period of time it would be distributed to all modders depending on their amount of "donation points." Donation points are a "currency system" (for lack of better explanation) that Nexus will be using. They haven't fully decided how these donation points will be earned, at the moment they are considering using the download counters. These points are also available to be traded and distributed to other creators, so creators can help each other out as well. The more donation points, the bigger the payout from the overall pot. Nexus has also said that they will try to offer games, software licenses, and computer hardware in addition to money. Robin Scott, Nexus Mods Founder, in interviews could not stress enough that mods will remain 100% free, there will be no charging for mods, as he'd like to avoid the train wreck from Steam's attempt to charge for mods. 

I think this would be a great system if it gets up and running because no name modders would still be able to benefit from this, even if it is nowhere near the amount the big players do. But that at least gives them some extra motivation, and that's always a good thing in my book. So I hope to see how this all plays out..
