Here are the upcoming releases for the week of November 21, 2016.
After a consistent wave of big-budget shooters and large single-player experiences, the weekly release schedule is calming down as the holidays rapidly approach. This week's biggest release is the remastered version of Darksiders for Xbox One, introducing a sleek makeover and improved framerates, all at a discounted price. The Division is also set to receive its second major expansion — Survival — which introduces an expansive new 24-player mode.
Our top picks this week:
The Division: Expansion 2 - Survival
Following the massive changes introduced last month in The Division's 1.4 update, the game is now on track to receive its next expansion pack. This is the second DLC pack released for the game and it debuts the new Survival mode.
Taking place on the same map as the base game, Survival challenges up to 24 players to fight for survival in the urban jungle. After a helicopter crash scatters players across the map, you'll be fighting the elements to find gear and make your way back to the center. The game mode will also make changes to the core gameplay, introducing a new cold rating which requires players to find gear to survive the freezing temperatures. New enemy levels and gear scores have also been added.
The Division's Survival DLC will release on Tuesday, November 22 for Xbox One, available as a free download for all players.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
The first Darksiders game is also making its way to current-generation consoles and PC this week, through the Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. The package gives players a chance to return to the hack and slash RPG, at the low price of $19.99.
With a new coat of paint fit for the modern day, the game now runs at 60 frames per second at 1080p on Xbox One. This version of the game also ships with improved textures, rendering, shadows and post processing effects. This is set to be an overall improvement over the first game, following its debut back in 2010.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is available on Tuesday, November 22 for Xbox One.
