World of Tanks Holiday Tank Mode 2015

December 22, 2015 – Wargaming today announced the new holiday themed combat mode for World of Tanks on Xbox One and Xbox 360 will arrive December 24. The original and festive Toy Tank Mode immerses tankers in a miniature toy-scattered wonderland, putting them in command of a glossy, remote control tank, and will be available to all Xbox players through December 27.

A change of scenery from standard tank warfare, Toy Tank Mode offers a more playful way to battle against your friends in a custom holiday garage, where miniaturized toy tanks navigate around a battlefield of presents. Traversing through toy-made ramps, blocks and gifts, tankers will enjoy an experience like no other, where every aspect of the game including crew voices has been scaled down for lighthearted tank encounters.

The Tier IX, “Toy Tank” is modelled from the French Tier V BDR G1 B and outfitted with a spring-loaded turret that fires suction cup dart rounds that comically attach to enemy tanks with each successful hit. In a rambunctious fight for victory, these carefully crafted toy tanks drive straight from the workshop to the console with special holiday emblems available only during this event.

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.

World of Tanks Unleashes Soviet Mediums in Siberian Wolf Pack Update

world-of-tanks-360-soviet-medium-tank

April 23, 2015 — An icy wind blows across World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition in the Siberian Wolf Pack update. Now available for the first time on console are deadly, new Soviet medium tanks. They’re perfect for hunting together and eliminating any enemy foolish enough to enter their territory….or their gun sights.

The Siberian Wolf Pack update delivers an alternate line of medium tanks: the A-43, the A-44, the Object 140 and the Object 430 II, creating a new branch of USSR tank fire power. The A-43 is an agile and light medium tank great for the high-speed sneak attack. Adept at flanking, the A-43 is most lethal when attacking the vulnerable sides of their enemies. Next in line is the A-44, a tank that deals a respectable amount of damage; if it cannot out gun an opponent, its deflecting armor angle provides supreme defense against incoming shells. Not to be outdone, the Object 140 and the Object 430 tanks each bring the opportunity for unique battle strategies to your growing arsenal.

King’s Quest Behind the Scenes Dev Diary #1

kingsquest

April 21, 2015 — Today Sierra™ is unveiling the first in what will be a four-part series of diaries showcasing the development of its upcoming adventure game, King’s Quest™. These intimate videos go behind closed doors with developer The Odd Gentlemen to meet the people, passions and techniques driving this bold reimagining of one of gaming’s most treasured names.

This opening featurette, titled “The Vision,” introduces Creative Director Matt Korba and Producer Lindsey Rostal, who leapt at the opportunity to bring the unforgettable storytelling, puzzles and wit of the original King’s Quest games into a new era. Thinking about the future of a franchise with such a storied past, the team chose to begin this new journey at its end, as an aged King Graham takes his granddaughter, Gwendolyn, back through the untold tales of his astounding life. That arc came full circle for the team when they met King’s Quest creator Roberta Williams – and fellow Sierra co-founder Ken Williams – to hear firsthand what inspired the game that paved the way for so many adventures to come, passing the torch from one generation to the next.

The first chapter of King’s Quest will tip its hat later this year as a digital download on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.

Dying Light Cancelled for Xbox 360 and PS3

dying-light

dying-light

Warsaw, Poland… Techland today announced that Dying Light, the first-person zombie action survival game, will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, while development on the previously-announced Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions has now ceased. The reason for Techland’s revised publishing plan has been explained in an open letter to fans:

Dear Gamers,

As you probably know, we’re wrapping up the development of Dying Light, our biggest and most ambitious project to date. We spent the last three years making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience.

Much of this “next-gen feel” is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.

Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.

To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available. Thanks to this, you’ll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on.

We hope you understand the hard choice we’ve had to make. With the launch just around the corner, we can’t wait to show you Dying Light in the state it was meant to be. We’re looking forward to your reactions and impressions as we release the game in January 2015.

Release Date:

Dying Light for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC will be released in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia.
