Crysis 3 may be getting some multiplayer DLC, should some new Achievements which have come to light be any indication. According to Xbox 360 Achievements, the content comes with four maps: Ascent, Coastline, Creek, and Crossing. It also contains the modes Frenzy and Team Possession, the later of which is said to contain flag points. A new weapon called the boat oar will apparently be included as well, due to the Achievement listing: Totally Oarsome – Get a kill with a boat Oar (Public Match only). While Xbox 360 Achievements is pretty much spot on with these things, nothing is official yet as neither Crytek nor EA have announced the DLC. Thanks, Joystiq.

According to IGN, there was a rumour going around that shared-worlds shooter Destiny was coming to Vita. Answering desperately curious queries, Bungie pointed out calmly that the only proof of the matter – a supposedly leaked bit of promo art – uses an outdated version of the developer’s logo, fairly conclusively marking it as a fake. Destiny has been confirmed for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360, and other “next-gen platforms” presumably including what we’re now calling Xbox Infinity. The trademark which sparked the fake, Destiny of Spirits, remains unexplained.
