Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s Forthog DLC Will Be Free

The Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s Forthog DLC will be made free to all the people who purchase the game. The game was recently available to purchase but the developers have confirmed that those who have already purchased the DLC will be refunded, and to meet the original intent of the DLC, the publisher will also donate to the family of Michael “4G” Forgey.

Originally the idea behind the DLC was that profits from the sale of the DLC would have been donated to the family of Forgey, who passed away in March 2016 from a rare form of cancer known as glioblastoma. However, there was a huge uproar and criticism as many believed that a massive portion of the profits wouldn’t go to Forgey’s widow and children.

Warner Bros said in a stat that they they recognizes that “tying our donation to sales of the DLC was not the best way to to achieve our goal of offering financial support to the family and creating a lasting memorial to Michael Forgey.”

They continued: “We sincerely apologize to the fans and to the Forgey family for the confusion we created. To ensure the two original aims are still met and to provide transparency to the community, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will instead make a donation directly to the Forgey family.

“The DLC will be withdrawn from sale and will be a free download for owners of Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Anyone who has purchased the DLC will receive a full refund. If there is interest in donating directly to the family, please visit their youcaring site.”

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be released on October 10 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

All in all I think this is a great gesture from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith. Condolences to the Forgey family and its nice to see that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will make a donation directly to the Forgey family.

Geralt of Rivia coming to SoulCalibur 6

All I can say the hype continues to get real when it comes to Bandai Namco promoting SoulCalibur 6 as they have confirmed that Geralt of Rivia will be a playable character and in addition, a stage based on The Witcher series, Kaer Morhen, will be available as one of the game’s arenas.

For those who dont know Geralt is from the game Witcher 3 and whilst that is a RPG game for SoulCalibur 6 he will keep his “signature fighting style” in his transition from the open-world RPG to now the fighting game. He’ll be able to utilize a “combination of swordplay, ability-enhancing potions, and combat magic.” In addition to having the character, his English voice actor, and his signature stage–based on the Witchers’ training ground–there will also be the “iconic” music track from the series, Hunt or be Hunted.

Overall I have to take my hat of to the team behind SoulCalibur as the line up is starting to look pretty sweet with the current confirmed characters and I am sure that within the next couple of months plenty more would have been confirmed. with regards to the latest character reveal I think that Geralt is a really good fit for the SoulCalibur series and from the look of the trailer he is gonna be a top draw with the variety of cool moves
Anyway peeps as always a very quick update what do you make of the latest character reveal for SoulCalibur 6 and is this gonna be a game on your radar this year.
