Snoop Dogg stars in Call of Duty's first voice pack DLC

Celebrity voice packs are totally a thing. So, who is Activision tapping for its first-ever narration DLC for the Call of Duty series? None other than Snoop Dogg.

With the DLC, Snoop will narrate your fights, call in your killstreaks, and alert you to enemy activity. "What interests me most about the project is that my voice can be connected with a game that's so hip and so hood," the artist said in a new promo. "It's associated with greatness."

Killzone Mercenary adds bots to multiplayer with paid DLC

Bots have finally come to Killzone Mercenary's multiplayer mode. However, you'll have to pay for the feature if you'd like to access it.

The "Botzone Soldier Training Pack" will unlock the ability to play against up to 7 AI soldiers in all of the game's multiplayer maps. Given that it's a Vita game, being able to experience multiplayer in an offline setting is pretty crucial, we'd say.

Goat Simulator dev explains why DLC should be free

"It's nice."

That's the number one reason DLC should be free, at least according to Goat Simulator's Armin Ibrisagic. "Having a good relationship with players is the best long-term investment you can make," he points out, saying that word of mouth is what ends up propelling games like his. "Dedicated fans are far better at spreading awareness about your game than any paid ads."

Batman: Arkham Origins 'Cold, Cold Heart' video shows new gameplay

Batman: Arkham Origins 'Cold, Cold Heart' video shows new gameplay

It's odd to think that Arkham Knight isn't the only Batman adventure coming this year. No, there's still the "Cold, Cold Heart" DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins.

Starring Mr. Freeze, the new adventure takes place after the events of the main campaign. Creative director Eric Holmes and game director Benoit Richer explain that WB Montreal wanted to include the villain in Origins, but couldn't figure out a way to make him fit the game's assassins narrative. Freeze isn't an assassin, it's against his character.

I Am So Super Excited for Titanfall's Transformers DLC!

I know it's been a long time since I've written for Shacknews, but I just couldn't hold back the excitement for this Titanfall DLC. I can't believe it! How did they get Optimus Prime from Transformers to be a playable Titan? Also, I love how they even offer an explanation as to why someone can control Optimus Prime. It's AMAZING.
