BenQ Unveils Premium Eye-Care Monitors with HDR

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Feb. 6, 2018 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today introduced four new models in its popular E-Series of entertainment monitors — including three supporting high-dynamic-range (HDR) video. Featuring BenQ’s patented Brightness Intelligence Plus technology, the new EX3501R, EW3270U, EL2870U, and Brightness Intelligence EW3270ZL each provide a single display for work and play, with powerful features for business users, movie lovers and casual gamers.

The BenQ EX3501R (curved 35″ Ultra-Wide QHD), EW3270U (32″ 4K UHD) and EL2870U (28″ 4K UHD) monitors all deliver breathtaking and hyper-realistic video quality through cutting-edge HDR technology for the ultimate in gaming and HDR video entertainment. Each monitor offers enhanced brightness, color temperature and contrast, adjusting to particular content automatically, while delivering incredible levels of detail and vividness to HDR video and cinema content. These enhancements increase the overall dynamic range between true black and bright white to more closely resemble what the viewers’ eyes see in the natural world. All three monitors support AMD FreeSync™ — and the EX350IR adds a 100Hz refresh rate — to eliminate image tearing, broken frames, and choppy game play for ultra-smooth and fluid gaming.

In addition, the EX3501R provides a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio with ultra-high 3440×1440 resolution, perfectly proportioning the 2.35:1 ratio of Cinemascope films and depicting the panoramic background graphics that make gaming fun. The EX3501R also features an ultra-slim, edge-to-edge bezel for endless horizons.

The new EW3270ZL monitor is ideal for viewing high-resolution movies and boosting work productivity, delivering enhanced video enjoyment through optimal color precision and QHD 2560×1440 resolution. With 10 bits of color depth, Rec.709, and 100% sRGB color space, the monitor offers more than a billion colors to work with astonishing precision. In addition, the EW3270ZL delivers multi-device connectivity via dual HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort inputs, giving users greater flexibility and the best possible video image quality from external sources. BenQ’s Low Blue Light Plus Technology filters out shorter, higher-energy blue-violet radiation (420~455nm) that can be harmful to the eyes, while keeping the remaining beneficial blue turquoise light (455~480nm); hence, this monitor can reproduce more accurate color compared with conventional Low Blue Light technology.

The EX3501R, EW3270U, and EL2870U all feature BenQ’s exclusive Brightness Intelligence Plus technology, while the EW3270ZL features Brightness Intelligence technology. This enables the monitors to detect ambient light levels and the color temperature in the viewing environment and automatically adjust on-screen brightness and color temperature for maximum viewing comfort. As a result, screen contents are not overexposed, and details in dark areas are enhanced to maintain a visible level of clarity and intensity.

The BenQ Premium Eye-Care monitors are available now via BenQDirect at the following MSRPs:
EX3501R, $899
EW3270U, $699
EL2870U, $499

Debris Co-Op Trailer Released

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (Feb. 5, 2018— Following the soft launch of its single player campaign in October of 2017, Debris is back and introducing its much-anticipated co-op mode. Lovingly developed over 3 years, the first-person co-op story takes place in a surreal, sunken world locked between chilly ice and unforgiving rock. An unfortunate accident leaves you stranded deep beneath the ice clinging to survival as you battle the elements and your own creeping psychosis. Players must scramble to find power, defeat strange creatures, and decipher what mysterious forces are attempting to prevent their escape. To celebrate the addition of co-op, Moonray has released a brand new trailer highlighting its inclusion.

Designed based on the challenges facing those affected by psychosis and created with the help of medical professionals, Debris explores the interplay between perception and reality in an unconventional, narrative-driven co-op format.

Escape Together or Die Alone

You’re part of a small team sent to film a promotional video for a groundbreaking discovery: meteoric debris embedded deep in Arctic ice that provides clean, hyper-efficient energy. Taking on the roles of either Ryan, the team’s videographer, or Sonya, a promising engineer tasked with leading the project, you’ll embark on a fight for survival in the murky depths of the Arctic Ocean.

Stranded at the bottom after a tragic accident, injured and running out of time, your only hope for survival is to reach the surface. But something else is going on. Things aren’t right, they don’t add up, and you can’t help but speculate. Why is this happening?

Dive into:

  • A mysterious story that leaves you questioning everything. The story of Debris unfolds in the communication between players as they struggle to navigate and unravel why they’re trapped and how they can escape.
  • Multiple endings dramatically impacted by key choices.
  • An unconventional, narrative co-op mode where your partner matters and tensions are high. Three lives are in the balance. One has a light, one has a gun; one sees everything, one hears everything; one is lost, and one is stuck. But everyone thinks they know what’s really going on.
  • Living, breathing characters voiced through conversational dialogue.
  • Everything you can do is tied to power, which counts down continuously. Debris is full of choices, all dependent on the time you have, the time you lose, the time you need and the time you are willing to spend.
  • A unique underwater setting like nothing you’ve ever seen. With 8 axes of movement (including buoyancy), players glide through the arctic labyrinth and quickly discover that their prison is home to strange bioluminescent flora and fauna, prey and predators of light and darkness.

As you fight your way to safety, you’ll need to figure out what’s behind this surreal world and your desperate situation. Knowing will make all the difference.

Debris’ co-op experience will be available on Windows PC and Mac OSX on Feb. 26, 2018 with a 50% discount at launch.

Space Hulk: Tactics Announced

February 2, 2018 – After successfully bringing Blood Bowl, the classic board game by Games Workshop, to Consoles and PC with two faithful adaptations, Cyanide Studio is proud to take on another fan favourite from the Warhammer 40,000 universe with their turn-based tactical gameSpace Hulk: Tactics!

Bringing a unique twist to the classic gameplay of the cult board game, engage in bloody battles through an immense Space Hulk – a twisted mass of asteroids, wrecked ships and debris – as either a squad of Terminator Space Marines or the deadly alien Genestealers. Which side will you choose?

Battle through two distinct, narrative-driven campaigns, from the points of view of two different factions: one campaign puts you in control of a Blood Angels squad, which you will customise and upgrade as you progress, while the other puts you in control of the Genestealers for the first time in a Space Hulk game!

Space Hulk: Tactics is based on the rules of the popular board game, given a fresh new spin in the form of the unique Card system. Cards give more ways to customize your squad before a match, and allow you to turn the tides of battle with abilities that trigger game-changing effects when used at the right moment.

Test your skills against other players in the expansive online competitive multiplayer, letting you command a swarm of Genestealers or a custom squad of different unit types from one of four Space Marine Chapters – the Blood Angels, the Space Wolves, the Ultramarines, and the Dark Angels. Multiplayer modes and tools offer a rich and deep online experience, and include an intuitive map creation tool, which gives players everything they need to create original maps with custom objective, and share them with other players to play either online or against the AI, all from within the game!

Space Hulk: Tactics comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2018. More information will be unveiled in February at Le What’s Next de Focus press event in Paris.
