The first DLC for BEYOND: Two Souls has been released into the wild for any person who wishes to play it.  The Advanced Experiments level takes place during Jodie’s specialized training on behalf of the CIA and pushes Jodie and Aiden’s skills to the absolute limit.  Since there are no spoilers present during the level, you can enjoy it at any point in your game progress.  Here is the DLC’s official trailer.

If you preordered BEYOND: Two Souls at GameStop and got the Special Edition version of the game, you already have this DLC.  Otherwise, the price is $4.99 US.  BEYOND: Two Souls is out now exclusive to the Playstation 3.

Ten Things To Do in Anticipation for the Xbox One Launch November 21, 2013

With the Xbox One launching at midnight tonight, I’m sure that there are many of you who are chomping at the bit to get your newest Microsoft console, but just be aware there is plenty of stuff that you can do right now to make the process of playing it all the faster.  We already did something like this with the PS4’s launch, and now it’s the Xbox One’s turn.

  1. Watch our Xbox One Preparation Video, which has a lot of the most recent information on the Xbox One for anyone who plans to pick up the console at launch.
  2. Get those last Xbox 360 Achievements in now, because while your Gamerscore will carry over to the Xbox One, the Xbox One will not be able to play Xbox 360 games.
  3. Buy a Xbox Live Gold Prepaid card if your subscription is due to expire soon.  GameStop informed me a few days ago that Microsoft was planning to release a Day One Xbox Live Gold prepaid card that was solid metal during the Xbox One launch, so if you would prefer to get one of those, just wait.
  4. Pick up any of the games for the system that are already out and have no street date, like Call of Duty: Ghosts.  Or pick up the extra peripherals that have already been released including the Xbox One Controller or Play and Charge Kits.
  5. Make sure you know your Xbox Live login information so you can transfer your GamerTag and profile quickly to the Xbox One.
  6. Download the Xbox One SmartGlass App to your Android iOS or Windows Device.  Microsoft chose to release a separate companion app for the Xbox One instead of upgrading the current one.  SmartGlass functionality will be used in some of the Xbox One’s launch titles including Dead Rising 3, so be sure to download it.
  7. Make your cable or satellite provider upgrade your HD box to one that is equipped with HDMI if it is old.
  8. Stock up on plenty of Mountain Dew or Game Fuel if your area is carrying it.
  9. Clear some space in your living room for the new Kinect.  Got a table in the middle of your living room for no reason?  Yeah, move it.  The new Kinect will not require as much open space as the first model did, but you’re going to need some open space with no obstructions between you and the camera to make full use of it during gameplay.
  10. Make a list of all the Xbox Live friends you would like to add to your friends list but can’t due to the Xbox 360’s 100-friend limit.  The Xbox One is going to allow a 1000 user Friend List so expect plenty of friend requests from old acquaintances to come.

The Xbox One is launching tonight at Midnight for a price of $499 US.
