Watch Dogs 2 Human Conditions PS4 Launch Trailer

SAN FRANCISCO — February 20, 2017 Today, Ubisoft® announced that Human Conditions, the second add-on content pack for Watch_Dogs® 2, will be available tomorrow, February 21 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Human Conditions is also part of the Season Pass content and will be available on Xbox One and Windows PC on March 23, 2017.

In Human Conditions, biotech takes center stage as players uncover three story-driven DedSec operations set within the vibrant city of San Francisco, investigate a disturbing gang conflict in co-op* with new Elite co-op challenges and face a new enemy type with enhanced tech, the Jammer.  The pack contains more than five hours of new content and challenges to enhance the overall game experience.

The three new DedSec operations introduce some of the Bay’s most outrageous scientific and technological storylines:

  • Automata revolves around Nudle’s new smart car, the CyruX, which uses biometric data both as a security measure and to adapt itself to the driver. But is that really all it does with a user’s personal information? DedSec sees the potential for abuse right away and sets out to expose it.
  • Bad Medicine follows the trail of a dangerous ransomware that has crippled the city’s hospitals; as Marcus and his crew dig deeper to stop this menace, they will cross paths with deadly hitman Jordi Chin and form an unlikely alliance against the Russian mafia.
  • Caustic Progress unveils a strange new company called RenSense that is experimenting with dangerous nanotech on the Bay Area’s homeless. It has caught the attention of bio-hacker Lenni, who claims that their mobile clinics for the homeless hide very troubling human experiments. With her help, DedSec sets out to stop this madness.

Additionally, new Elite co-op challenges will enhance the co-op experience with advanced challenges to test players’ stealth and combat skills. Elite co-op challenges will require the completion of various objectives in multiple locations with bigger layouts and a couple of surprises to spice things up.

Players will also be confronted with a new enemy type, the Jammer, a deadly opponent carrying an anti-hacking device disabling all hacking options in a radius around him. DedSec members must carefully adapt their strategy to deal with this exceptional threat, temporarily disabling his device from afar or manually turning it off after taking the Jammer down.

In Watch_Dogs 2, players explore the birthplace of the tech revolution as Marcus Holloway, a brilliant young hacker who has fallen victim to ctOS 2.0’s predictive algorithms and accused of a crime he did not commit. In Marcus’s quest to shut down ctOS 2.0 for good, hacking is the ultimate weapon. Players can not only hack into the San Francisco Bay Area’s infrastructure but also every person and any connected device they possess to trigger unpredictable chains of events in this vast open world.

Stay tuned to the Harmonix blog, as well as Rock Band’s Twitter and Facebook pages for gameplay reveals throughout the month.

Gameplay Notes
“The Stage” by Avenged Sevenfold starts off our newest DLC pack. A whopping eight and a half minutes long, “The Stage” is a force to be reckoned with. With devil horn difficulty on both drums and guitar, this is a Metal-lover’s dream. There is an extremely challenging intro for drums – we recommend getting into Practice Mode to nail those double kicks down. There’s plenty of tricky guitar parts outside of the song’s three guitar solos that will also need some special attention to perfect.

The next song in the More Metal Pack 01 is “Trust” by Megadeth. Peaking at #5, the Grammy-nominated “Trust” would become the bands highest charting Billboard Mainstream Rock single.  Another track in the pack with three shredding guitar solos, “Trust” will have plenty of movement throughout the tune for guitarists and their bandmates. Be careful in the second guitar solo, as the difficulty spikes for that one.

Rounding out our Metal-focused DLC is Slipknot’s “Dead Memories”. Culled from their platinum-selling album All Hope Is Gone, “Dead Memories” has multiple gameplay highlights. Drummers should take note of that tricky drum pattern during the bridge of this song. And, for you Pro Drummers out there, the chart is notably different for you due to a healthy mixing of toms and cymbals at the same time. Cymbals can really make all the difference!

Shadow Warrior 2: The Way of the Wang Free DLC Released

Austin, TX – Independent developer Flying Wild Hog and free DLC connoisseurs Devolver Digital have released Shadow Warrior 2: The Way of the Wang, a free DLC pack for the hit first-person slasher on Steam and GOG. Shadow Warrior 2 will be 25 percent off through the weekend to celebrate the launch of the new free DLC.

Shadow Warrior 2’s The Way of the Wang DLC opens up a new area within the game’s hub town, presenting seven special trials for Lo Wang to unlock and overcome. Players will be able to earn new crafting abilities, weapon gem slots, and base weapon upgrade perks upon completing each new trial with the prized Fist of Gozu weapon waiting for those that complete the final Trial of the Ancient God mission. Shadow Warrior 2 fans will also find three new ‘Insane’ difficulty levels for the game and five new achievements waiting for them in the DLC pack.

“The fact is Shadow Warrior 2 was a hit for Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital and frankly we have more money than we can handle at the moment,” said Fork Parker, CFO at Devolver Digital. “Our team of lethal but fiscally responsible ninja accountants advised me to go ahead and giveaway The Way of the Wang DLC for free and write it off on our taxes. So there you go, you cheap bastards.”

Launched in October, Shadow Warrior 2 has been a critical and commercial success for the independent Polish developer Flying Wild Hog. In its first week alone, the sequel enjoyed a fourfold increase in sales over the 2013 Shadow Warrior reboot.

The sequel follows the further misadventures of former corporate shogun and anti-hero, Lo Wang, who after the events of the first game is surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world. The formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world he inadvertently corrupted.
Shadow Warrior 2 is available on Steam [shadowwarrior.com] and is set for release on consoles in early 2017. For more information please hit up whowantssome.wang or follow @shadowwarrior on Twitter.
