Crytek Releases New Warface Special Op

FRANKFURT, Germany – June 2, 2016 – A futuristic threat is buried within an ancient pyramid in Anubis, the expansive new Special Operation coming today to Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter, Warface.

Anubis – named after the god of death himself – is an epic three-stage co-op mission set in Eastern Africa, where players must battle hard, smart and as a team. Gamers must work through a network of bases, culminating in an assault on a pyramid, to disrupt Blackwood’s villainous operations.

The action comes thick and fast from the moment the team is inserted into the landing zone, where enemies are at the gate of a missile facility. After infiltrating the complex and disabling the control room, defended by deadly automatic turrets, players must repel assaults from all sides as they battle through a canyon to reach a heavily fortified dry dock. Then it’s time to blow up a Blackwood submarine. Once this objective is completed, players take the fight to the heart of Anubis’ pyramid, which houses a clandestine cyborg factory. Gamers must disable the facility and then survive waves of relentless attacks as a sandstorm engulfs the battlefield before extraction.

The new Special Operation’s three diverse stages require players to combine the strengths of the game’s four different classes to take on and eliminate a wide range of enemies. Gamers must adapt their tactics for each stage, from clearing out buildings at close-quarters to holding a defensive line in the face of marauding cyborgs, if they are to complete this action-packed new mission.

Anubis is the latest co-op Special Operation to launch for Warface. New maps, missions, weapons, items, weapon skins and challenges are regularly added to the game as Warface evolves to serve its ever-growing community.

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.

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.

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.
