Warriors Orochi 4 New Character Trailer

Burlingame, Calif. – August 16, 2018 – KOEI TECMO America revealed an array of new characters today for Warriors Orochi 4, the latest installment in the popular one-versus-thousands action game series. Fan-favorite characters from across the DYNASTY WARRIORS and SAMURAI WARRIORS franchises return to the battlefield when they are threatened by an unknown force; but as they uncover the mystery surrounding their fate, they discover that they are not alone.

Four new gods, each equipped with powerful mystic weaponry known as Sacred Treasures, join Warriors Orochi 4’s extensive roster; including: Perseus, Ares, Athena, and Odin. Perseus – the hero of Olympus and demigod son of Zeus – hearing news that his father is meddling in the human world, decides to rise to fight alongside them. Meanwhile, Athena – the wise and powerful goddess of wisdom – learning of Perseus’ plans descends to earth to capture him. She uses magic powers to manipulate the size of her Sacred Treasure, the shield Aegis, which she throws at her opponents to turn them to stone. At the same time, Ares – the god of war – fights passionately to fulfill his own beliefs – that the gods should dominate humanity. Wielding his twin spears to transform into a vigorous dragon, Typhon unleashes a stream of fire on those unfortunate enough to cross its path. The ruler of Asgard, Odin, also joins the fray using Gungnir, a unique spear which summons magical blades to its tip to become a powerful drill that can quickly eliminate any who stand in his way.

In addition to the four new gods, a number of pre-order bonuses for both physical and digital versions were also announced. Those who pre-order the physical version, through select retailers, will receive alternative costumes for Xu Shu, Mitsunari Ishida, Da Ji, Wang Yuanji, Wang Yi, Lady Hayakawa, Xingcai, Guo Jia, Takatora Todo, and Yoshitsugu Otani. Alternatively, if players choose to pre-order digitally on the Xbox Marketplace and Nintendo eShop, they will receive all of the previously mentioned bonuses plus two extra bonuses: an elusive unicorn and the mighty Pegasus. Digital pre-orders on the PlayStation Store will be rewarded with Pegasus alongside a special Warriors Orochi 4 theme.

To further showcase the compelling new playable characters, Sacred Treasures, and pre-order bonuses, KOEI TECMO released a fresh asset batch featuring screenshots of the new characters, a look at interactions between a variety of new and existing characters, and a first look at Character Deification – a brand-new gameplay feature which bestows characters the ultimate power of the mythological gods.

Warriors Orochi 4 is currently in development for the PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System, Nintendo Switch™, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and digitally on Windows PC via Steam®, and is slated for release across North America on October 16th, 2018.

*Update: So it looks like there was a hiccup with the pricing and, this week only, Dustwind will be on extra discount to $14.99! After this week, the game will return to $24.99 so be sure to pikc it up.

August 15, 2018 – Dustwind is a real-time tactical game set in a post-apocalyptic world has been in their ‘Early Access Phase,’ since last November.

The full release will be $24.99 USD, and will be on sale at 20% off ($19.99 USD) for the first week after release.

Fight in a Post-Apocalyptic World of Embers!

View Official Launch Trailer:

Sneak, aim for body parts, use a varied set of weapons and ammo, trick and flank your enemies, set or disarm traps, drive and repair vehicles. Take some caution to avoid blowing up all of your teammates! Seriously, don´t take that bazooka into close quarters combat.

“Dustwind is all about real-time tactical combat in a grim post-apocalyptic setting, creating uniquely balanced characters, and making your opponent´s heads explode in so many hilarious ways. Have you ever seen someone being shot with a plunger to the face or kicked off a sniper tower by an armored dog? You will in Dustwind! Happens every day…

You can play various MP game modes with or against your friends, or play Solo missions against the environment. Which will eat you alive if you aren´t careful and coordinated. This is where it gets REALLY tactical. But don´t worry, you can always come back with another character build & strategy (or more plungers) and eventually, you will prevail against the 100 or so computer-controlled Raiders.

Oh, and if you´re a mapper, the built-in map editor will be just your thing. So gear up and let the clusterfunbegin!” – Dimitri Zaitsev, Creative Director

A typical game session is anywhere between 10 minutes and 1.5 hours, strongly depending on which game mode and map you play. Large cooperative maps take longer (if you don´t die), while competitive matches are usually timed at 10-20 minutes.

Core Features & Gameplay Descriptions:

Tactical action combat.

You will need your tactical thinking and just a bit of reflex as you lead your character(s) into battle. Sneak, aim for body parts, use varied weapons and ammo, drive vehicles, deploy turrets and barricades, use the environment to your advantage, trick and flank your enemies, set or disarm traps, and try not to blow up all of your teammates!

Create and tweak your custom characters.

No fixed classes, no pay-to-win. Experiment with various character builds without wasting your time. But you only get 10.000 points to spend on each character you make, so spend them wisely to find the coolest combination of skills and gear that suits you personally. Don´t worry though, you can re-stat or make a new character at any time! And as you gain ranks as a player, you unlock cool new items to give to your warriors!

Play as a DOG.

Dogs are great support units who can throw grenades, drive cars, deploy turrets, fire mounted car guns, heal people (bring your DOGtor!), repair stuff, bite enemies in the butt, and more.. The only thing they can´t do is use (the most) human weapons. But so what? Show those humans how tactical fighting is done! Wuff!

CLUSTERFUN!

A typical game session in Dustwind is almost guaranteed to generate some interesting situations where people are flying around with their limbs torn off after some dumb incident, such as being kicked into a mine, bouncing a grenade off a wall back into your own face, or being shot by your minigun-wielding pal who was just trying to protect you from the raiders… The world of Dustwind is full of chaos, and the way it manifests itself is blood & hilarity.

Make your own maps and rulesets with ease.

Dustwind is meant to be played the way YOU want to play it! Stay with the default maps and rules, or create house rules with just a few clicks. Enjoy cool maps created by others, or enjoy the ability to create your own maps. Our user-friendly, Steam Workshop integrated map editor allows you to leave your mark on the game by expressing your creativity and sharing your work proudly and easily with the entire community. Power to the people! View the ‘Map Editor’ in Action https://www.dustwind.com/about/map-editor

F1 2018 Third Developer Diary

Larkspur, Calif. – Aug. 9, 2018 – Codemasters® has today released the third part in a series of developer diaries for F1 2018, the official videogame of the 2018 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, detailing how the new game boasts the most authentic F1 car handling simulation ever seen in the franchise.

The third of the four part series, which is available to watch now at www.youtube.com/formula1game, reveals that F1 2018’s car simulation and handling has significantly advanced this year, with revamped suspension and chassis physics, the addition of real world F1 data for unprecedented accuracy, new “tire carcass” temperature for the first time, as well as manual deployment of the ERS system. The ultimate result of these enhancements is that the gamer can experience the pure sensation of the tire tearing into the track surface, and therefore giving a realistic and relatable feeling of grip, under all wear, compounds and weather conditions.

“I believe F1 2018 is a massive step up, because we’ve introduced so many more simulation aspects that I believe will be very well received by all the players,” commented David Greco, senior car handling designer on F1 2018. “To choose which one is the most important and advanced is quite hard, but I would probably say it is the expanded system which enables us to simulate the tire temperature more realistically than we have ever done before.”

He continued: “This year, the way the car feels, with the ‘Force Feedback,’ and how it all works together, we are very close to what I want from a simulator. In over 20 years of my career between sim racing and real motorsport, I have always come across questions like: ‘one title is more simulator than another title, because it’s very difficult to drive?’ With my real motorsport experience, I can say that real racing cars are made to have a lot of grip. To me, a simulator is not how easy it is to drive or how easy to make it spin. To me, a simulation is how many real-life, physical components we simulate, and especially this year, there are not many features that I can think of that we don’t simulate. To just call it a game to me is not enough anymore.”

F1 2018 features all the official teams, the drivers and all 21 circuits of the thrilling 2018 season, including Circuit Paul Ricard and the Hockenheimring. As well as the current season’s offerings the game includes 20 iconic cars from the history of the sport. F1 2018 will release onto PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC on Aug. 24, 2018.
