"Batman: Arkham" has recently teased the promised story DLC coming for "Batman: Arkham Origins." And while there have been speculations that Alfred may be the next big name for the add-on, it seems that the bigger chance lies with a very cold villain.

Apart from the two teased images in the official "Batman: Arkham" Facebook page, a new image is said to have been released by the developers in relation to the story DLC. And according to DualShockers, this image shows the name Ferris Boyle, a man who plays a major role in changing Victor Fries into everyone's favorite cold villain, Mr. Freeze.

This would be an interesting take as a DLC, though it remains to be seen how Mr. Freeze will further propel "Batman: Arkham Origins'" promise of exploring key relationships in the game.

'GTA 5 Online' Gets More Player-Generated Jobs

For those who enjoyed the previous lineup of "GTA 5 Online" jobs that have been verified by developer Rockstar Games, here are some more suggestions as to the noisemakers when it comes to the millions of "GTA 5 Online" jobs available.

In the Rockstar Newswire, the developer has promised that it will be announcing more officially verified jobs, but for the meantime, here are the top four "GTA 5 Online" jobs that are currently enjoying a lot of attention from players:

-       Jump the Lake by Gaming Delimited: The challenge here is to create some madness with motorbikes, ramps and water, all rolled into one job.

-       Busted (Rancho) & Busted (Police Station) by RatchetAU: If "GTA 4 Online" was all about getting all creative with the Free Mode, this job is all about Busted and Demo Derby for "GTA 5 Online."

-       Laguna Seca Remake by GTAVDriver: A Reddit favorite, this job involves an epic circuit that brings to mind the Laguna Seca Raceway, hence the name.

-       Fort Zancudo Race & Spyhunter V1 by rechyyy: Ramps and power-ups amplify this "GTA"-style race as the creator also adds a touch of arcade shooter nostalgia in the creation.

*The Pokemon Transporter has reportedly reappeared in the eShop. Read the details here.

'Minecraft' Realms takes 'Minecraft' Online

"Minecraft" has a number of updates for the new versions coming out, as developer 4J Studios left a short announcement at its official Twitter account.

"We'll be back in 2014 to continue work on #MinecraftXBLA, #MinecraftPS3, #MinecraftXbox1, #MinecraftPS4 and #MinecraftPSVita."

But perhaps one of the bigger announcements for the "Minecraft" franchise is that "Minecraft" Realms, the online paid subscription that allows players to gather together and play in a world that's always online, is now available in Sweden for the "Minecraft" PC.

"Anyone who attended this year's Minecon can also access Realms by redeeming the Realms pre-paid giftcard that came in their giftbag," said Mojang.

*The double XP event for "Battlefield 4" may run at a later date: Read more gaming news and updates here.

Basically, "Minecraft" Realms lets players invite up to 20 friends to their Realm, with 10 of them playing at the same time. The subscription already has seven pre-made maps (among them Blocks vs. Zombies, Dash of Doom and Spellbound Caves), with the world saved online for up to 3 months.

There are three packages offered for "Minecraft" Realms that players can choose from: 30 days access costs €10, 90 days costs €26 and 180 days costs €46. For now, "Minecraft" Realms is only available for a select number of players as it rolls out its beta service, but it will eventually be rolled out to more players.
