An online website is already selling pre-orders for Frostpunk 2 even though the developer, 11-bit Studios, has not decided the price yet, Cyberpunk 2077 will soon have Patch 1.3 and free cosmetic DLC, and Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut releases tomorrow!

Cyberpunk 2077 DLC

Cyberpunk 2077, developed by CD Projekt Red, is a highly-anticipated action role-playing game set in a dystopian future. Despite its rocky release, with numerous bugs and performance issues, the developers have been working hard to fix and improve the game. One of the upcoming updates, Patch 1.3, promises to address many of these issues and bring much-needed improvements to the game.


Along with the bug fixes and enhancements, Patch 1.3 will also introduce new DLC content to Cyberpunk 2077. While the DLC is purely cosmetic, it adds a new layer of customization for players. You will be able to obtain two new jackets for V, the main character of the game, as well as a new alternative appearance for Johnny Silverhand, portrayed by Keanu Reeves. Additionally, a new vehicle will be available, although it is important to note that all these items are purely cosmetic and do not affect gameplay.


What makes this DLC exciting is that players can earn it in-game simply by playing the game. This means you don't have to spend any extra money to enjoy the new content. CD Projekt Red has been committed to delivering free DLC to Cyberpunk 2077 as a way to reward the players for their support and patience.


Speaking of patience, many players, including myself, are eagerly waiting for the game's full release on PlayStation 5. While Cyberpunk 2077 is already available on various platforms, the PlayStation 5 version is still in the works. Once the game receives an official PlayStation 5 release and the necessary optimizations, it will likely offer an enhanced and more polished gameplay experience.


The delayed PlayStation 5 release has its advantages. By waiting for the game to be fully optimized for the console, players can experience Cyberpunk 2077 the way it was meant to be played. This delayed release also allows the developers to address any lingering issues and make the necessary performance enhancements specifically tailored to the PlayStation 5 hardware.


As a fan of the game, I understand the anticipation building up for the day when Cyberpunk 2077 becomes available on PlayStation 5. I played the game initially on PC but encountered performance issues that hindered my enjoyment. I then tried using GeForce Now, a cloud gaming service, which provided a smoother experience. However, nothing can replace the feeling of playing the game natively on the PlayStation 5 console. Hopefully, the official release for PlayStation 5 will happen sooner rather than later, fulfilling the dreams of many fans who have been patiently waiting for this moment.


Once the PlayStation 5 version is available, I intend to dive back into Cyberpunk 2077 and explore every inch of Night City. I want to experience the game in its finest form, taking the time to complete all the quests, uncover the hidden secrets, and fully immerse myself in its cyberpunk world. With the upcoming Patch 1.3 and the new DLC additions, there will be even more content to enjoy and further enhance the overall experience of the game.

Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut

Another exciting release on the horizon is Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut. Sucker Punch Productions' critically acclaimed action-adventure game is receiving a special upgrade for PlayStation 5 owners. The Director's Cut not only brings improvements for the PlayStation 5 version but also introduces an expansion called Iki Island.


For current owners of Ghost of Tsushima on PlayStation 4, there is an option to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version of the Director's Cut. The upgrade will take full advantage of the PlayStation 5's hardware, offering enhanced graphics, faster loading times, and smoother gameplay. PlayStation 5 players who haven't experienced Ghost of Tsushima before can directly purchase the Director's Cut, providing them with the complete package.


The Iki Island expansion is an exciting addition to Ghost of Tsushima, offering players a new area to explore and a new story to unravel. Set on Iki Island, players will find themselves amidst new conflicts, facing formidable enemies, and embarking on thrilling quests. This expansion promises to expand the already immersive world of Ghost of Tsushima and provide players with new adventures to embark upon.


As a passionate Trophy Hunter, I am eagerly looking forward to the Director's Cut. With the PlayStation 5's capabilities, the upgrade from the PlayStation 4 version of a game can often be staggering, providing improved visuals and performance. I recall the incredible leap taken by Final Fantasy VII Remake when it made the transition to PlayStation 5. The game looked stunning on PlayStation 4, but on PlayStation 5, it was an entirely new level of visual splendor. Judging by the preview videos released for Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut, it seems that the game will offer a similarly breathtaking experience on PlayStation 5.


The inclusion of new trophies in the Iki Island expansion is also exciting news for Trophy Hunters like myself. Achieving these trophies adds an extra layer of challenge and motivation to explore every nook and cranny of the expanded world. With the release of Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut, both newcomers and existing players will have even more reasons to dive back into the beautiful and immersive world of feudal Japan.

Frostpunk 2 Scam

Switching gears to another topic, Frostpunk 2 created quite a buzz after its recent announcement. Developed by 11 bit Studios, the sequel to the critically acclaimed survival city-building game has been highly anticipated by fans. However, it seems that some unscrupulous individuals are already attempting to take advantage of this excitement.


Shortly after the announcement, 11 bit Studios took to social media to warn fans about a potential scam. It was brought to their attention that an online retailer had started selling pre-orders for Frostpunk 2, despite the fact that the price had not yet been determined or announced by the developers. This raised concerns among the developers and other game companies, including CD Projekt Red, who expressed their support for 11 bit Studios and the need to raise awareness about this issue.


The fact that Frostpunk 2 has already entered the top 50 most wish-listed games on Steam speaks volumes about the excitement surrounding the game. However, it is important to exercise caution and not rush into pre-ordering a game when necessary details, such as the price, have not been officially announced. Falling victim to scams can result in financial loss and disappointment, tarnishing the overall experience of eagerly awaited titles like Frostpunk 2.


As fans, it is crucial to support developers and ensure that our excitement does not blind us to potential scams. The best course of action is to patiently wait for official announcements and pre-order information from trusted sources. By doing so, we not only protect ourselves but also send a clear message that scams and unfair practices have no place in the gaming community.


In conclusion, the gaming industry is constantly evolving, with new updates, DLCs, and releases keeping players engaged and excited. The upcoming Patch 1.3 for Cyberpunk 2077 brings much-needed improvements and introduces cosmetic DLC content for players to enjoy. Similarly, Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut offers PlayStation 5 owners a chance to experience an enhanced version of the game, complete with a new expansion set on Iki Island. However, amidst this excitement, it is crucial to remain vigilant and avoid falling victim to scams, as demonstrated by the recent incident surrounding Frostpunk 2. By staying informed and supporting developers and the gaming community responsibly, we can ensure a positive and enjoyable gaming experience for everyone.
