Left Over News - Tuesday 2nd April


The time has come for the news coverage to wind down for another day, so, unless anything major happens after 5pm tonight, this will be the last post of the day.

Here's a collection of other happenings today.

1 - Trion World's Defiance came out today on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

"In Defiance thousands of players, who take on the role of an Ark Hunter, scour a transformed Earth in search of valuable alien technology. Each ark hunter can play to their strengths, customizing special abilities as well as upgrading a huge variety of both modern and alien weaponry that is at their disposal. Players can hunt alone or with others as they engage in massive co-op boss battles and fierce multiplayer combat known as Shadow War, in addition to taking on dynamic missions in campaign mode while exploring this constantly evolving world." Neat.

2 - Tomb Raider 1939 multiplayer map pack now available.

Featuring two new maps; out now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.

- Dogfight: Dating back to the World War II experiments conducted on the island, this bunker is a deadly maze of brick and mortar that could easily become a tomb.

- Forest Meadow: This forest meadow is a hunting ground, filled with open spaces that can be advantageous and dangerous at the same time. Who is the hunter and who is the hunted?

3 - Borderlands 2: Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack and Patch out now on PC, PS3 & Xbox 360

Here's what's been included in the patch:

Adds new items to the Black Market:

- One additional ammo upgrade for each ammo type, at 50 Eridium each.
- Two more backpack storage space upgrades, at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.
- Two more bank storage space upgrades, at 50 and 100 Eridium respectively.
- Increases the maximum amount of Eridium players can hold from 99 to 500.
- Adds a new playthrough balanced for top-tier play: Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
Various bug fixes.

The Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack is free for season pass holders or $4.99 / 400 Microsoft Points:

Raises level cap to 61, allowing characters to gain 11 additional levels.
Characters gain a skill point with every level from 51 to 61, for a total of 11 more skill points.
Powerful new 'Ancient' E-Tech relics and rare Pearlscent-grade weapons can be picked up in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.

4 - Sony trademarks Destiny of Spirits.

The trademark applies to "computer game software; electronic game software for handheld electronic devices; video game software." Well that tells us everything. You can look at the filing yourself here.

5 - EA announce Army of Two: Devil's Cartel: Olly Murs Limited Edition

EA have announced that Army of Two: Devil's Cartel is to get a special limited edition involving UK pop singer, Olly Murs after he released a song of the same name last month. Check out the first exclusive trailer here.

So...I might have made one of those stories up.

That's all for today. Thanks for reading and interacting today and I'll be back from 9am tomorrow.

Be sure to leave any questions or comments below and I'll answer them when I can!

Colin out.

The ads for Defiance make it look really good, but the beta was a bit of a mess, Lovefilm have sent it out to me anyway, so I'll see what it's really like later.

Would love to hear your views on the final product. Naff looking TV show aside, it is an interesting idea and i wouldn't mind seeing how it turns out. The ad i saw on TV last night looked a bit rubbish though. I'm not thoroughly convinced

I saw and advert for the TV show a couple of weeks ago and didn't even consider that it would link into the game. :D

I think it'll be a passing glance at each other. somewhere in the game's back story will be the TV show's story!

I'll give it a bit of a bash this afternoon and get back to you. As for the connection to the show, it'll all be heavily scripted, you won't be able to do something outrageous in the game and then get a mention in the next episode of the show or anything.

Go back to the Playstation TM, the xbox lifestyle just doesn't suit you.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
