Today in Tech - Titanfall DLC, DirectX 12 and Wikipedia Archive

Today in Tech - DirectX 12,

DirectX 12 to be launched at GDC 2014

At this years Game Developer Conference, Microsoft is planning to launch its latest version of DirectX. A teaser page was put up recently that gives the date of March 20th at 10:00 AM. There have been multiple rumors speculating that DirectX 12 will feature low-level APIs like Mantle and will essentially render AMD's API useless. No further information was given so it looks like we'll have to wait till March 20th to get the full details.

Full Wikipedia archive download only 40GB

Wikimedia has created a giant file that contains the entire archive of Wikipedia in its current state. The ZIM file is 40 GB and features over 4.5 articles and 3.5 million pictures. Compatibility should not be an issue as Wikimedia has stated that the ZIM file is accessible on Windows, OSX, Linux and multiple mobile platforms.

Titanfall confirmed to have DLC and Season Pass

Vince Zampella of Respawn has recently denied the rumors that the game will have no paid DLC or season pass. In all honesty, who expected a developer to give free DLC in this day and age? In the interview with Gamespot, Zampella stated that, "We're going to do paid DLC, we're also going to do free updates... There are things we want in the game that we didn't get to ship in the final game. We'll add private matches and things like that for free."

Worried about micro-transactions? Don't worry, Zampella also said they won't be implementing micro-transactions and that the season pass is simply there for people who want to get a better deal up-front.
