Fortnite’s PvE “Horde Bash” Update Arrives October 5

October 3, 2017 – Today, Epic Games announced the “Horde Bash Update” for Fortnite’s “Save the World” PvE mode on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Available on October 5, the mode delivers an all-new “Challenge the Horde” gameplay mode, a new in-game event, new heroes, weapons, questions, and more!

Challenge The Horde Mode

It all starts in a staging area. You’ll have unlimited time, but limited resources to build a portable horde fort. Once you’ve designed the perfect fort, exit the staging area and party with up to three friends. Your forts will be ready for action when your team hits the ground. As you survive, you’ll receive more resources and more rewards to Challenge The Horde.

Scavenger Event

With the new update comes a new event llama. The Scavenger Llamas holds four new Heroes, nine weapons, two new Defenders. Earn the Scavenger currency by completing quests and playing the new Challenge The Horde mode. The Scavenger weapon set is delicate, but they’re all cheap to craft.

Fortnite’s “Save the World” PvE mode is now available in paid Early Access, and will go free in 2018. For more information on the update, including information on new Heroes, weapons, questions, and more, head over to the official Fortnite blog.

Fall of Light Launch Trailer

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, September 28th 2017 – 1C is pleased to release Fall of Light today. This story-driven dungeon crawler, developed by independent studio RuneHeads, is set in a world consumed by darkness and combines a solid Souls-like experience, captivating atmosphere, a deep story and original visuals. Benefiting from full English voice acting and localized into the EFIGS languages, Fall of Light comes to Windows PC and Mac OS via Steam and other digital stores.

“Dark Souls meets ICO” (IKnowYourGame)

The release of Fall of Light is accompanied by a new trailer that uncovers some of the farther locations of the game, its fierce enemies and deadly traps. Nyx, our main hero, has dozens of weapons at his disposal throughout the game to beat back the dark adversaries of men, but he would not get far without his daughter Aether. She is literally the light piercing the darkness, Nyx’s source of will and his power to push on further until they reach the place where the Sun still shines.

But although the story of Fall of Light and the journey of Nyx take place in a medieval fantasy world, their true background lies in our world and touches on a very sensitive subject. When playing Fall of Light, the metaphor for the fight against pervasive darkness will be revealed through one of three alternative endings.

GUTS Demo Released

São Paulo – September 28, 2017 – Prepare for an even bloodier Halloween this year as hilariously ultraviolent fighting game GUTS (Gory Ultimate Tournament Show) from independent video game developer Flux Game Studio will launch on PC for $19.99. In the spirit of the holiday, GUTS will be available for purchase with a special Halloween discount. Players interested in trying a demo prior to release can download the genre-changing fighter from the Steam page and receive exclusive weapon skins, profile ribbons and more.

GUTS is a radical fighting game that introduces original fighting game mechanics and eliminates health bars and timers. Instead, players must dismember their opponents by using deadly GUTS Moves to chop off arms and legs. Even while missing a limb or two, the brawl continues until one fighter emerges victorious. If nine lethal opponents weren’t enough, the controversial and politically incorrect world ofGUTS features special modes where players must also be wary of the fatal environments that can sever limbs or hasten mortality. Players can face both enemies and hazards in either online and local multiplayer, as well as in a single-player story mode with a total of 18 different endings – two per character.

GUTS may sound difficult to play because of its limb-chopping gameplay, but the title actually has a low barrier to entrance thanks to our dual-layered combo system that lets new players button mash with success, while also allowing hardcore players to perform amazing combos and difficult move sets,” said Paulo Santos, Founder of Flux Game Studio. “With GUTS you don’t need to memorize a manual to learn the inputs, which makes the game easy to pick up and entertaining for all to play. Additionally, our comeback mechanic allows for even more fun because it keeps matches close until the end.”

“Set in the year of 2067, GUTS is a deadly reality TV show that feeds the blood lust of a dystopian Earth. Players compete in bloody arenas to earn fame and fortune as the world’s next fighting idol. In order to be the best, players must master special combination moves, learn the ropes of the different move sets that change according to how many limbs they still have left, time their severing attacks and evade their opponent’s deadly blades.”

The Evil Within 2 ‘Righteous Priest’ Trailer

September 27, 2017 – Shrouded in mystery, Father Theodore has remained an enigma…until now. Along with Stefano, Theodore is one of the human “monsters” who have made their way into the new STEM world in The Evil Within 2, and he’s finally ready to reveal his message to the masses – a message that promises a “righteous” fury and immolation to those who oppose him. Sebastian will need to survive the wrath of this master manipulator if he’s going to have any hope of finding Lily and escaping the nightmare of STEM.

Theodore has his own reasons for being in STEM that are separate from Mobius’ goals, which he sees as misguided. Though what he’s actually after only becomes apparent as Sebastian becomes more entangled in his world. Like Stefano, Theodore isn’t alone in STEM, although unlike Stefano – who commands the gruesome and terrifying Guardian and Obscura – Theodore’s main helpers aren’t creatures he created. Referred to as Harbingers, they are normal people whose minds Theodore has bent to his will. These Harbingers wield flamethrowers and seem to exist solely to carry out Theodore’s fiery will, burning any who would stand in the way of his pursuits. Any detail about his past pushes into HUGE SPOILER territory. In other words, you’ll have to play the game in order to unlock the secrets he hides. In the meantime you can check out Bethesda.net for even more details and insights from the team at Tango Gameworks.

As Sebastian Castellanos, you’ll have to dive into hell once more in the sequel to the hit 2014 survival horror game from the mind of Shinji Mikami. Take on twisted creatures in horrifying domains and face off against your own worst nightmares as you race to save your daughter. The Evil Within 2 will launch worldwide Friday the 13th, October 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Evil Within 2 has been rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Two Trailer

September 26, 2017 – Today we are excited to share the official trailer for episode two of Batman: The Enemy Within, a new five-part episodic game series that continues Telltale’s unique take on the Caped Crusader. You can download the trailer by following the links above.

The death of a villain at the hands of a mysterious assassin was just the beginning. As explosions rock Gotham, Batman races to meet a new foe, but encounters a force that may cause even the Dark Knight to fall. In the guise of the billionaire, Bruce meets John Doe’s ‘friends’ and becomes enmeshed in a plot where the only way out is to go deeper in. But at what cost?

Episode two, ‘The Pact,’ launches October 3 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac. In addition, both episodes one *and* two will become available on iOS and Android-based devices that same day. Going forward, new episodes will launch the same day on all platforms.

A special ‘Season Pass Disc’ for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will also be available at retailers starting October 3 in North America and October 6 in Europe. The disc includes the first episode of the season, as well as download access to all subsequent episodes as they are released.

This new season will be accessible to both returning fans and newcomers alike, though players’ choices from the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series will optionally carry over into The Enemy Within. This season will also include Telltale’s unique multiplayer ‘Crowd Play’ feature, which allows friends and family to engage with the adventure together by helping to decide the direction of the story from any mobile device with an online connection.

Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent including Troy Baker, who returns to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne, as well as Anthony Ingruber, who will reprise his fresh take on ‘John Doe,’ better known to fans as The Joker.

Batman: The Enemy Within will be a standalone product separate from the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series and is licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and based on DC’s iconic character. Episode two, ‘The Pact,’ has been rated ‘Mature’ by the ESRB.
