Pop quiz: What makes Far Cry Primal different than all the other games Ubisoft has released over the past year? No, it’s not the mammoths. Not the fake language they made just for this game, either. Give up? The answer: There’s no season pass.
When Techland announced its Dying Light expansion, The Following, it was going to cost $15 for anyone who wanted it outside the season pass. Today, the developer announced the DLC’s price is increasing to $20, but there’s still time to get it at the old price, and anyone who already bought the season pass is safe.
Well, my interest level in Batman: Arkham Knight just skyrocketed. Fresh details on the DLC coming in the game’s season pass reveal Batgirl’s Arkham game debut.
The Bright Lord, Shadow of Mordor's new DLC campaign, promises an epic showdown with Lord of the Rings head honcho Sauron. It was designed in part to address a common fan complaint about the original game's anticlimactic ending. But while it does give players a chance to fight Sauron, I'd hardly call it an epic battle.
The surprisingly excellent zombie game Dying Light got its first batch of DLC today, Techland said in a surprise announcement.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor comes out tomorrow. While Tolkien fans will be delighted to finally play a Lord of the Rings game that's actually really, really good, others might be disappointed that Sauron doesn't make much of an appearance. Turns out: he's in Mordor, you just have to pay more to get to him.
Today Warner Bros. announced the first-ever season pass for a LEGO game, promising players six downloadable content packs and more than 40 new characters for $14.99. What they should really be doing is bundling their DLC with Minifigs and selling it in stores.
Broken Age, the crowdfunded adventure from Double Fine launching today to its backers, won't be offered on Steam Early Access. It will, however, release under a "Season Pass" model that gives buyers both of two planned episodes.
The good news is there's going to be a lot of extra stuff in WWE 2K14. The bad news is they want you to buy a $20 season pass for it. Three packs contain extra wrestlers—including the NWO—and others will have customization options and loads of extra wrestling moves. Details here and in this video.
