ArmA 2 mod DayZ getting standalone release

If you've played military shooter ArmA 2, chances are you've heard of DayZ, a mod that turns the game into a multiplayer open world zombie-fest where no one is to be trusted as you struggle to survive. The mod is brilliant, if not a little rough around the edges in this early stage, and perhaps that's why ArmA 2 developer Bohemia Interactive has decided to turn it into a full release. DayZ creator Dean "Rocket" Hall announced the game today, saying that he will become project lead with Bohemia Interactive acting as publisher.

Source Filmmaker files point to upcoming Source 2 engine

It's always hard to tell what's going on behind the scenes at Valve, but if recently-uncovered Source Filmmaker files are to be believed, the Half-Life developer is planning something big. Valvetime has uncovered a bunch of references to a planned Source 2 engine lurking in Source Filmmaker's script files, so it seems that Valve is planning a new version of the Source engine. That makes a lot of sense, considering that Valve has been using Source in one form or another since 2004.

BioWare details Leviathan and Firefight Mass Effect 3 DLC

Mass Effect 3's multiplayer is definitely a fun way to pass the time, but if you're like me, you bought Mass Effect 3 for the single player story. Disappointingly, single player DLC has been hard to come by with Mass Effect 3, while BioWare seems to release multiplayer DLC every other week. That's all about to change with BioWare's upcoming Leviathan and Firefight DLC, and today the studio dropped some details on both in a post on the BioWare blog.

Well, that was quick. Earlier this week Bethesda's Pete Hines promised that more information about the missing PC and PS3 releases of Dawnguard, Skyrim's first DLC, would be coming soon. When he said that, we didn't think he meant it would be releasing soon, but apparently he did.
