Celebrate 100 Years of Tanks with Wargaming

May 31, 2016Wargaming is excited to start commemorating the history of tank development over the past century with our community. Over the next few months, Wargaming is unveiling a series of in-game events and specials across all platforms leading up to the anniversary of the Mark I, the very first tank deployed into battle. The first major event kicks off today with “The Motherland Calls” on Xbox 360, Xbox One and PlayStation®4. Through this, players have a rare opportunity to earn the prestigious Motherland Premium Tier VIII Medium, based on the T-54 first prototype.

During the event, tankers can participate in limited-time “Fight for the Motherland” chained ops, with new missions unlocking every few days. Once each of the operations is completed, players will earn tiered prizes culminating in the ultimate reward: the Motherland Premium. This rare tank is an armored powerhouse, and once obtained it will unlock the second chained ops event “Motherland Unleashed”, offering additional in-game bonuses including Gold, x2 Crew Experience and special medals.

“Wargaming’s development team is happy to commence 100 Years of Tanks by bringing The Motherland Calls event to console,” said TJ Wagner, Creative Director and Executive Producer at Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore. “We wanted to offer a fun and engaging way for our players to earn one of the most intense tanks we have in the game and a lot of extra rewards. With a host of special operations, in-game events and tournaments, we are confident players will have a blast with The Motherland Calls.”

Wargaming is also introducing two PvE skirmishes based on the historical battles of Prokhorovka and Caucasus, where tankers will receive an exclusive medal upon completion with a Soviet vehicle. The symmetrical desert Ghost Town and the treacherous Mountain Pass maps have also been added to the matchmaking rotation, along with two additional rare Soviet tanks, the IS-2 Tier VII Heavy and the ISU-122S Tier VII Tank Destroyer, available in the PlayStation®Store and Xbox Live Marketplace.

Behind-the-Scenes Trailer for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5

THPS5_School_Tony_Airwalk

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – August 26, 2015 – Today Activision Publishing, Inc. shared a new behind-the-scenes trailer for Tony Hawk’s® Pro Skater 5 that chronicles each of the skateboarding professionals in the game. There are riders from different eras of skateboarding sharing their perspectives on gaming history and how the classic THPS games intersected with the ever-progressing skateboarding scene, as well as what it’s been like to participate in THPS5.

Tony Hawk himself oversaw the inclusion of the following pros in THPS5: Nyjah Huston, Riley Hawk, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Andrew Reynolds, and Lizzie Armanto.

“I wanted a mix of pros that represent the diversity of skating today. Ishod Wair, David Gonzalez, and my son Riley were obvious choices because of their versatility and relevancy to modern skaters. The girls are represented well with two of the best: Leticia Bufoni on street and Lizzie Armanto on transition. Andrew Reynolds (aka The Boss) is still considered one of the best, so he is back representing the OG THPS skaters. Chris Cole and Nyjah Huston are contest dominators and phenomenal talents,” said Tony Hawk. “And Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki, is a modern-day stuntman on a skateboard, dropping off the biggest stuff he can find. He was a perfect fit for the over-the-top action of THPS5.”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 rekindles the signature style of classic Pro Skater games in a brand-new set of levels with the same renowned focus on daring objectives, fine-tuned controls – including manuals and reverts – for endless shredding and high-score tricks. On PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, players will enjoy seamless online multiplayer, letting them drop in and out of online skate sessions with up to 20 challengers at one time. Complete missions, unlock new content and level up online or offline, or go head-to-head on the fly against all takers in competitive matches. Players can also build their own skateparks to share with the community.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is scheduled to launch in North America on Sept. 29, 2015 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One for $59.99. The game is also planned for release without online play on Xbox 360 and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system on Nov. 10 for $39.99.

Battle(Rear View)

BURLINGAME, Calif. May 18, 2015 – KOEI TECMO America is proud to announce the inaugural release of famed strategy/historical simulation IP, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence. The game will be available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system across North America on September 1, 2015. It will also be simultaneously available digitally on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and on PC via Steam®.

Having recently celebrated its 30th year anniversary, Nobunaga’s Ambition is one of the longest running franchises for KOEI TECMO Games in Japan, and during its lifetime it has received high praise by an ever-growing fan base across an array of platforms. Now, its latest chapter, Sphere of Influence, marks the series’ return to North America after 6 years of absence.

Ogasawara-san, the long-serving producer of the series, notes: “It is my distinct pleasure to be able to present the newest installment of Nobunaga’s Ambition to our western audience. I hope gamers will enjoy this one-of-a-kind strategy game that has been refined through 30 years of experience. Don’t miss it!”

Hailed as one of the best installments in the franchise’s history, this extremely intricate, deep, and meticulous strategy game is set against a backdrop of a fragmented nation. Players take the mantle of a Daimyo, a feudal lord of the Sengoku era (15th-16thcentury Japan), and fight for the great ideal of uniting the war-ridden country under one rule, thus becoming the first Shogun.

This title, centering around creating a realistic, dynamic, and dramatic playing experience, requires a high level of concentration and skill as players will need to master three key verticals in order to become a well-rounded ruler and successfully beat the game: Creation, Diplomacy and War.

In ‘Creation’, players must strengthen their clan’s standing, and deal with everyday issues like building farms & roads, growing the economy, entering trade agreements with neighbouring fiefs, etc.

Diplomacy’ is a playground for cultivating diplomatic relationships, employing spies, creating alliances, gaining the loyalty of subordinate officers, and growing in strength via marriage, oaths of fealty and treaties.

Finally, to succeed in ‘War’, players must train troops, level up officers according to the clan’s needs, fortify defenses, strategically position armies, and attack (or defend) to further their goals and grow their dominion.

Choosing to play either as a historical personality or a uniquely edited character, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influenceis both a full scale historical simulation and a bona fide strategy title, and offers an extremely wide pallet of choices for the player to shape the world as they please.
