Just last week we saw what the God of War Collectors Edition would provide fans and now to keep the hype moving forward we have now learned that the game will have "No season pass" according to Cory Barlog.

 

This doesn't mean that the game will not have a DLC as this could still be a possibility for the PS4 exclusive. Single-player game fans can now rest at ease knowing that their "wide linear" single-player game will not harbor the modernized money making traits that most AAA title games do these days.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 10 hours, 31 mins ago

But now German site ComputerBase.de is reporting that NVIDIA isn't happy (about selling out of their graphics cards completely) and that they are targeting gamers, and not miners with their GeForce graphics cards.

 

NVIDIA said: "For NVIDIA, gamers come first. All activities related to our GeForce product line are targeted at our main audience. To ensure that GeForce gamers continue to have good GeForce graphics card availability in the current situation, we recommend that our trading partners make the appropriate arrangements to meet gamers' needs as usual".

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 1 day, 21 hours ago

Samsung was the first to unveil their new 16Gb GDDR6 chips that offer up to a blistering 18Gbps of bandwidth, with SK Hynix joining the fray with its announcement of 8Gbps GDDR6.

 

sk-hynix-announces-gddr6-offers-up-14gbps-bandwidth_04

 

SK Hynix will differ from Samsung's upcoming GDDR6 with only up to 14Gbps of bandwidth, compared to the maximum 18Gbps on offer from Samsung. Still, 14Gbps offers up to a huge 768GB/sec of memory bandwidth given a 384-bit memory bus, which sounds suspiciously like what we'd find on a next-gen TITAN X from NVIDIA.

The new expansion is due to arrive next month, with the developer detailing the DLC with a new mode called Air Assault. The mode will feature aerial dogfights but sadly will only be available to play on two maps, "On London Calling and Razor's Edge."

 

DICE have not forgotten the ground troops either though, as the DLC is also bringing a new range of anti-aircraft weapons to the game. The DLC patch notes mentions the adding of the "the Assault Class's AA Rocket Gun" which "arms infantry soldiers with a way to assist airborne team mates and deliver serious damage to enemy aircrafts."

 

Players that want to get their hands-on the Apocalypse DLC will have to have a Premium Pass as this DLC is not free.
