Weekend Headlines March 3-5th Part 3: Screenshots, Collector's Editions and More

By Rebecca Smith,
We finish this week's roundup with screenshots, a collector's edition for DiRT 4, and details of post release content for Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Screenshots

A third teaser image for Oddworld Soulstorm made its way online, but not before the community had deciphered it. The plight of the Mudokons seems to be getting worse...

In this week's concept art for State of Decay 2, the team were experimenting with the use of colour to "evoke the feeling of a higher elevation". They also debated whether players would be able to use zombies in "less-than-savory" ways.

To celebrate the release of the title on Steam, Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition got a series of new screenshots showcasing characters, stages and gameplay.


The latest screenshots for Toygeddon showcased three of the game's modes — Capture the Battery, Exodus and King of the Mall. Players journey across a park that is infested with enemies in the hope of finding vital batteries to prolong their life.


YIIK has had a rocky journey to publication. The screenshots show off the latest build of the game, known as the Factory Hotel Remix. While it represents the opening of the game, combat has been simplified and some content has been removed to avoid spoilers.


Miscellaneous

As well as the standard edition of DiRT 4, players who pre-order the title will be able to make use of the Day One edition. This will feature an exclusive Hyundai R5 rally car and a Founder Icon, as well as access to a unique Hyundai event that will only take place between June 9-11th. If you want to splash even more cash, there will be the Special Edition that will include all of the Day One content and a Team Booster Pack that gives you a unique team offer, staff and facilities bonuses. Select retailers will also offer a steelbook option that contains the Day One content and a steelbook case, of course.

Special Edition
