Frostpunk: On The Edge Release Date Reveal

We survived the Great Storm, but the path ahead is still marked with toil. A finding outside New London seems to be a blessing, but doesn’t every miracle come with a price? Lead the expedition to explore the uncharted parts of Frostland in Frostpunk: On The Edge. 11 bit studios is thrilled to present a new cinematic trailer, the first screenshots, and announce that the third and final expansion for its bestselling survival city-builder is coming to PC this August 20th.

While Frostpunk’s previous expansion, The Last Autumn, served as a prequel, On The Edge picks up when the base game has ended. The storm has exposed an army warehouse from times before the evacuation. A scouting party is sent from New London to set up an outpost and a steady chain of supplies. It’s time to take another step on the laborious path of rebuilding hope and leading humankind to survival. But… the world of Frostpunk is still full of embroiled dualities: trust or skepticism, independence or domination, union or separation. The question is, what path will you take?

Near the outpost, there are no animals to hunt, so you’ll be depending on food sent from New London and their favors are not inexhaustible. They have their demands too. Luckily, the weather is not so severe here, on the edge. For now, the people have managed to survive without a Generator, but for how long? Will you be able to lead them to survival, far from the capital city of New London? Play On The Edge – the final chapter of the thrilling Frostpunk story!

Frostpunk: One The Edge awaits you with:

-A gripping survival story set after events of the original game
-Circumstances will force players to explore and adapt to the frozen wilderness
-A brand-new map with unique structures
-New methods to divide or unite your people
-New mechanics to build economic and diplomatic relations

Frostpunk: On The Edge will be available Aug. 20th, 2020 on PC via Steam, GOG.com, and Humble Store. More details will arrive soon so be sure to add the expansion to your Steam Wishlist here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1147010/Frostpunk_On_The_Edge/.

Travel Channel Announces Shock Docs for Fall Season

Travel Channel journeys back to the most infamous horror cases our country has ever known, taking a fresh look at true and terrifying tales of paranormal encounters with a new umbrella series titled “Shock Docs,” scheduled to air throughout the fall. The announcement was made today at Travel Channel’s “Wonder Women: Superstars of Paranormal” panel during San Diego Comic-Con’s virtual Comic-Con@Home.Kicking off the spooky season on Labor Day, Monday, September 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT is the history of the nation’s first modern-day paranormal investigators,“Devil’s Road: The True Story of Ed and Lorraine Warren.” Over the course of their 50-year career, Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated thousands of hauntings. They documented some of the most famous cases ever recorded, including the Amityville Horror house, the real-life Rhode Island home behindThe Conjuring films and the Bridgeport Poltergeist. Ed, a demonologist, and Lorraine, a clairvoyant, were an unassuming couple who devoted their lives to battling demonic forces inhabiting families or homes.

During the 1970s and 1980s, the Warrens made numerous appearances on television talking about their cases and spreading the word about the paranormal and preternatural worlds that exist all around us. Their life’s mission: to prove the existence of good and evil; God and the devil. Along the way, they pioneered many techniques still used in the field today, including audio and visual recording devices, advanced electromagnetic devices and even produced their own television show. This two-hour special features interviews with their daughter and son-in-law, Judy and Tony Spera, who share never-before-broadcast audio of Ed conducting interviews for the Bridgeport, Connecticut, poltergeist case, and rare video of the Warrens helping a young woman coming under demonic possession. Tony also has granted the production access to his catalog of footage from his television series, “Seekers of the Supernatural.” It includes many hours of Ed and Lorraine discussing their work with Tony.

“Travel Channel fans have an insatiable appetite for the classic cases that even the paranormal investigators revere,” said Matthew Butler, general manager, Travel Channel. “In these ‘shockumentaries,’ we start at the beginning and explore why these places and cases remain the most famous – and the most haunted – in the country.”

Each installment of Travel Channel’s “Shock Docs” goes to the heart of a true American horror story – and a peek into history. We travel across the country to uncover the best-documented paranormal encounters – tales recorded on video and audio that capture the raw terror of an encounter with evil. Additional “Shock Docs” on the slate for later this fall will delve into the true-life hauntings of the “Amityville Horror House” and “The Exorcism of Roland Doe.”

“Devil’s Road: The True Story of Ed and Lorraine Warren” is produced by 1895 Films for Travel Channel. For 1895, the executive producer is Tom Jennings. For Travel Channel, the executive producer is Cecile Bouchardeau Weiland, Julie Meisner Eagle is vice president of production and development, Matthew Butler is general manager and Henry Schleiff is group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America.
