If you are into post apocalyptic nanosuit technology then hoo boy this is your week!
Bethesda has released the latest Fallout: New Vegas DLC, Honest Hearts, and EA has pumped out the first mini-DLC for Crysis 2 called Retaliation, which is basically a four map pack for the recently release shooter.
Here’s some details on the four new maps for Crysis 2 via a PR from EA:
TRANSIT — The Tidal wave that swept across the city
brutally exposed the subway system when a giant sinkhole opened up. This large battlefield is a sniper’s dream with encircling high ground surrounding the flooded landscape below. The subway tunnels provide opportunities for more brutal close range fighting and a welcome respite from the high powered scopes.
SHIPYARD — With the battle against the Ceph still raging, the Navy hastily put this ship in for repairs in this derelict shipyard, until the evacuation took away all the labor. With the area now abandoned, Marines and CELL now fight for the ships powerful weapons systems. The ship itself provides an advantageous view point, use its sheers size to get the drop on your enemies. Snipers have excellent lines of sight, but the hull of the ship provides plenty of cover.
PARK AVENUE — Park Avenue saw fighting and the scars are still all too evident. This once bustling area was eerily quiet until now. Controlling the central bridge gives command over this battlefield but leaves you vulnerable to attack from all sides. Stealthy players can lurk at street level ready to ambush the unwary.
COMPOUND — After the infection spread the last remaining survivors were evacuated to the mainland, leaving this CryNet outpost unmanned. On this large leafy night-time map be careful not to be exposed by searchlights. The control tower offers a great view of the surrounding area but the nano-glass walls prevent players from shooting in or out. Descend below the surface and follow the sewers to gain ground and assault enemies occupying fortified positions in the compound.
As for the New Vegas DLC:
Honest Hearts takes the player on an expedition into the unspoiled wilderness of Utah’s Zion National Park. Things go horribly wrong when your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding band. As you try to find a way back to the Mojave Wasteland, you become embroiled in a war between tribes and a conflict between a New Canaan missionary and the mysterious Burned Man. The decisions you make will determine the fate of Zion.
