Ahead of the release of the Knife of Dunwall DLC next week, Arkane Studios has prepared a title update for last year’s top-rated new IP debut, Dishonored. Patch 1.3 corrects a number of bugs in the base game and Dunwall City Trials DLC, most of which are rare but annoying little glitches that interfere with your well-laid stealth plans. See the full change log on the Bethesda Blog, and expect the patch on all platforms over the next few days.
Thanks, Blue’s News.

Mac port developer Aspyr has advised that it has released an update for the OS-X version of Borderlands 2. The patch adds leaderboards, achievements and “more importantly, multiplayer co-op with their Game Center friends”. Hopefully that last one means the much-touted cross-platform compatibility with PC is also back, having vanished thanks to a Gearbox update to the Windows version last year. Aspyr has also made DLC available as in-game purchases, and is offering 50% off the shooter RPG sequel on the Mac App Store.

Saints Row 4 is going to have oodles and oodles of DLC, but stop gnashing your teeth; the core game itself is larger than Saints Row: The Third and much of the extra content development is being outsourced.

Crusader Kings 2: The Old Gods is an unusual expansion, pushing the game’s start date back to 867 AD. It’s a historical period many of us are less familiar with, and in a new developer post, lead designer Henrik Fåhraeus describes a fledgling Christian and Muslim world surrounded by tribes of “heathens” – all of whom are playable. Take control of the Vikings, Tartars or Magyar and change history, or even promote the interests of the Orthodox church. The dev diary can be found on the Paradox forums and is the first in a weekly series. Crusader Kings 2: The Old Gods was announced in February for a second quarter release, exclusively on PC; check out some new screens through the break.

Piranha Games’ latest content update for free-to-play MMO MechWarrior Online is hefty indeed. The star billing is shared by the new Tourmaline Desert and Jagermech, but a new Testing Grounds area has been added, too, allowing you to check out new gear and features before wandering into battle. You may want to take advantage of this, as Piranha has added a bunch of optional control tweaks, such as a gas pedal, a torso to legs centre, and better joystick support. On top of that, there’s a pile of consumables and cosmetic items, and a leaderboard challenge.
