DCS: F-86F Sabre Available for Pre-Order

F86F-1

DUXFORD, UK, July 26th, 2014 –The Fighter Collection and Eagle Dynamics in cooperation with Belsimtek are pleased to announce that DCS: F-86F Sabre is available for Pre Purchase. Pre Purchase provides access now to the open beta.

Pre Purchase DCS: F-86F Sabre from: http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/

The North American F-86F Sabre was the most capable western fighter of the early- to mid-1950s. This swept wing, single engine jet was the most important western aircraft of the Korean War and often tangled with Russian-made MiG-15s over the infamous “MiG Alley”. It was a hard struggle not only for the Korean sky, but also between two excellent aircraft builders of the East and West.  In addition to its primary role as an air-to-air fighter, the Sabre could also carry bombs and air-to-ground rockets to attack ground targets.

The Belsimtek simulation of the Sabre is by far the most authentic recreation of this famous warbird to date. Feel what is to fly the Sabre with a professional level flight model, an interactive cockpit, fully functional weapons, a detailed damage model and a richly detailed aircraft. Experience the strengths and weaknesses of the Sabre in combat and find out why seasoned fighter pilots often look back at the Sabre as the most enjoyable aircraft they ever flew.

As part of DCS World, fly the F-86F Sabre in a fully realized combat environment with working weapon systems and capable air and ground threats.

Key Features of the DCS: F-86F Sabre:

  • Unmatched flight physics that allow you to truly feel what it’s like to fly this legend
  • Highly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpit
  • Interact with cockpit controls with your mouse
  • Fully modelled weapon system
  • Accurate F-86F Sabre model, squadron markings, and weapons.
  • Detailed modelling of the F-86F Sabre instruments, weapons, engine, radios, fuel, electrical and hydraulic systems
  • Battle the MiG-15, the Sabre’s nemesis

3-mmo-hit-world-of-tanks-novy-update-cislo-8-0

July 25, 2014 — Wargaming today announced the launch of the Wargaming supported WG mod, allowing players to broadcast their gameplay from the World of Tanks and World of Warplanes clients directly to their channel on Twitch, the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers. Now the intense online battles of Wargaming’s PC titles can be streamed from desktop to Twitch viewers with one simple click.

Since the launch of WG Stream, the total number of broadcasts on World of Tanks and World of Warplanes channels on Twitch has doubled, while the number of spectators watching those has increased by 18%.

“Wargaming has consistently created stellar content which the Twitch community has embraced,” said Brooke Van Dusen, Director of Business Development at Twitch. “As testament, World of Tanks has been regularly featured on our monthly list of top games, so this integration should help propel these titles even higher up the charts.”

“We are excited and proud to deliver WG Stream, a new tool that enables Twitch integration with World of Tanks and World of Warplanes,” said Mike Turner, VP of Business Development at Wargaming. “The ability to stream the explosive action of both titles to the legions of Twitch viewers is important to Wargaming. WG Stream gives our pilots and tankers the ability to broadcast their biggest victories to millions of viewers worldwide.”

The WG Stream mod has been designed with both novice and experienced gamers in mind. The incredibly accessible interface allows players to take gameplay and footage from the garage, assign hotkeys to manage the stream, and offers a variety of settings to optimize stream quality. The mod will continue to update and add additional features to improve the Wargaming live stream experience.

Mordheim: City of the Damned Screenshots

mordheim-04

July 24, 2014 — The development of Mordheim: City of the Damned, the first video game adaptation of the cult tabletop game, Mordheim, is going full steam ahead at developers Rogue Factor. Today, they’re taking a short break to share some new screenshots! Having previously unveiled the Skaven and the Human mercenaries, they are now revealing one of the next playable factions: the Sisters of Sigmar.

Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game set in the Warhammer World’s doomed city, which blends elements of RPG, highly tactical turn-based combat and intricate unit customisation in a world overwhelmed by chaos and faction rivalry, and where the law of the strongest reigns supreme. Numerous factions are locked in battle in Mordheim, mainly for glory, fortune and power. Today’s images unveil the Sisters of Sigmar, one of the four playable factions of the game!

Made up exclusively of women, the Sisters of Sigmar fight in the City of the Damned for a very different reason than the other factions: whereas the mercenaries throughout the Old World are seeking the fame and fortune that the shards of Wyrdstone can grant them, and the Skaven covet the precious green shards for the power they contain, the Sisters of Sigmar are eager to find the Wyrdstones in order to hide it all, where it will not spread further into the Empire the wave of insanity that has engulfed Mordheim.

Riches and infamy await you late 2014 in Mordheim: City of the Damned!

About Skylanders Trap Team

Launching in October, Skylanders Trap Team brings a ground-breaking innovation to the Skylanders franchise by reversing the magic of its signature Toys-To-Life play pattern to let kids bring life-to-toys for the first time. With Skylanders Trap Team, Portal Masters seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pulling them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in magical Traps. Players can then send villains back into the game where they play as them to fight for good. The game will include the Traptanium Portal, a new ring of magical energy that enables kids to not only bring their Skylanders to life, but also magically capture villains using the new Traps. Once they’ve defeated the villains, kids will be able to place a Trap into the new portal to capture them. They will also be able to hear the villains inside the Traps, an innovation that truly brings life to toys.

About the Skylanders® Franchise

The award-winning, $2 billion Skylanders franchise pioneered the Toys-to-Life category in 2011 with the debut of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure®. The game originated a new play pattern that seamlessly bridged physical and virtual worlds across multiple platforms. In October 2012, Skylanders Giants™ further evolved the genre and added the mega-sized Giant Skylanders and LightCore® characters to the collection of interaction figures. Skylanders SWAP Force launched in October 2013 and introduced an all-new play pattern – swapability.  The Skylanders franchise was the top selling kids’ videogame of 2013(2), and is now one of the top 20 videogame franchises of all time(3). Skylanders Trap Team, the newest installment due out in North America on October 5, 2014, reverses the magic of bringing toys to life – incredibly letting kids pull characters out of the digital world into the physical world.  For more information, please visit: www.skylanders.com and Activision.com/presscenter.

Styx: Master of Shadows Summer Trailer

Styx-09

7/18/2014 — Styx: Master of Shadows, the infiltration game developed by Cyanide Studio and planned for release on PlayStation®4, Xbox One® and PC in September, today takes a little break from its development to inaugurate its official website with a new video!

This Summer Trailer invites us to follow Styx, the two-century old Goblin whose main occupation is thievery and assassination, as he begins infiltrating the huge Tower of Akenash. It is in this immense tower that is jealously kept hidden by elves, humans and other fantasy creatures, the World-Tree and its Heart, source of the precious Amber. This is the final objective of Styx, who today demonstrates a few of his skills and special powers, that will be of great help to make a silent way to his goal.

Also optimized for smartphones and tablets, the website of Styx: Master of Shadows is a treasure-trove of information about the game, its story, gameplay mechanics, and the special skills of Styx, the assassin and thief goblin you will play. All the useful information you may be looking for is within a hands reach throughout the different sections of the website. You will also find a big gallery of screenshots, unseen artwork, as well as videos, among which you’ll find a long gameplay video commented by the developers.

This will be a good opportunity to get a sneak peek at what awaits you in September, when you will start your ascension of the Tower of Akenash!
