QuakeCon Pack Steam & id Mobile sale

Published in Game News

In what’s become a yearly tradition, like John Carmack providing QuakeCon’s opening keynote, we’re excited to announce this year’s QuakeCon sales for Steam and id mobile. From now until August 5th, you can purchase the QuakeCon 2012 pack, featuring more than 20 id Software and Bethesda titles.
Save even more on the QuakeCon pack by pre-ordering Dishonored in tandem with your purchase, which will save you $15 on the pack.

So wie John Carmacks QuakeCon-Eröffnungsrede mausert sich auch die Steam-Sonderaktion zu einer jährlichen Tradition: Sie bündelt zahlreiche Spiele zu einem Sonderpreis auf Steam. Von heute bis zum 5. August 2012 kann man das QuakeCon 2012 Pack käuflich erwerben, das über 20 Spiele von id Software und Bethesda Softworks enthält.
Allerdings sind nicht alle Spiele im deutschen Store erhältlich.
Das gesamte Bethesda-Paket kostet dieses Wochenende nur 99 Euro. Enthalten sind alle Bethesda- und id-Spiele, allerdings nicht in Deutschland. Hier fehlen viele indizierte id-Software-Shooter.

Battalion 1944 - Projekt ist live!

Published in Game News

 VICTORY! Thank you everyone! 317% funded!!!

Battalion 1944 (PC/XB1/PS4) recaptures the core of classic multiplayer shooters and propels WW2 into the next generation of gaming. Battalion 1944 utilizes the most advanced industry technology to create a visceral and heart-thumping multiplayer experience that has been crafted by the designers who have grown up playing Medal of Honor, Call of Duty 2 and Enemy Territory.

Throughout our campaign on Kickstarter we’ve managed to amass more than 10 thousand backers. The outpouring of support we have received is genuinely amazing and we cannot thank you enough. As a community we have tripled our initial funding goal to 317%, meaning we at Bulkhead Interactive are now able to develop Battalion 1944 into a game that will challenge the biggest AAA shooters in the industry.
Your funds will help make Battalion 1944 awesome. A question we’ve received a lot is what will happen to our British and Russian stretch goals.

We’d also like to remind you we’ll be opening our PayPal ‘slacker backer’ store in the coming weeks to allow anyone who missed their chance to back the campaign or didn’t have a credit card on hand to pledge their support and receive our exclusive Kickstarter rewards at their discounted Kickstarter price. This will be open for 1 week only. We’ll let you know well in advance when that goes live. We will make an official announcement as soon as that goes live...

Published in DirtyBomb Misc
Dirty Bomb - New Free2Play-Shooter from SplashDamage - SplashDamage have returned to the PC FPS Realm with their latest title DirtyBomb. To be launched on the Unreal 3 engine the game is a made for PC FPS title that in the words of Paul Wedgewood when I bumped into at Gamescom 'you guys will really like'.

The trailer reveals the game is set in a futuristic London and its quick cut scenes suggest its intending to be a fast based team FPS. There was no accompanying press release by Splash Damage only the recent hiring of Unreal 3 engine coders and the big 'Unreal' logo on the end of the trailer give that fact away! Its also suggested that due to Warchest being involved it will be a Free to Play game.
Dirty Bomb - Neuer Free2Play-Shooter von Splash Damage - Wie vor einigen Tagen angedeutet, hat der Entwickler Splash Damage heute mit Dirty Bomb ein neues Spiel angekündigt. Dirty Bomb wird ein Free2Play-Multiplayer-Shooter und nutzt die Unreal Engine 3. Mehr Infos zu Umfang, Fraktionen, Hintergrundstory oder besonderen Spielelementen gab es noch nicht, auch ein Release-Termin oder Beta-Angaben blieben aus.

Im Video sind erste Spielszenen zu sehen, die ein paar Straßenzüge in einem leicht futuristischen London zeigen. Als kostenlos spielbarer Multiplayer-Shooter soll Dirty Bomb exklusiv für den PC entwickelt werden.

First-ever Dirty Bomb Gameplay Video

Published in DirtyBomb Misc
We’ve released a brand-new gameplay video showing pre-alpha multiplayer footage from the pre-alpha version of Dirty Bomb. Be sure to watch that now and let us know what you like, and want to see more of!

We’re also launching a Founders Club for fans wanting priority access to the Closed Beta, exclusive in-game content, cool swag, and public recognition for their support. You can check out our Founder’s Club page for more information. If you want to make an even greater pledge of support, consider joining our Inner Circle.
Around a year ago, just before we started work on Dirty Bomb, Anti and I put some effort in to defining our core philosophy on making a brand-new dedicated PC shooter. For those of you that don't know, Anti was once a top Tribes player, then joined us as a Production Tester on Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, was Associate Producer for three years, and is now Designer on Dirty Bomb.

We believe competitive multiplayer team-play is more thrilling than single-player. We believe in fulfilling players by advancing their actual skill. We believe in long-term player engagement, developing games that are played for months and years. We believe in competitive games as a service, and we’re dedicated to the perfection of team-play.
Heute hat SD das ersten Game Play Video von Dirty Bomb veröffentlicht. Wer sich das Video anschaut, wird sehr schnell sehen, das hier ein neues ET entsteht. Es ist ein schneller, teambasierter Shooter; wie ET.
Es geht um Objective Gaming; wie in ET. Es sind Engineers, Medics, Field Ops und einen Sniper zu sehen, welcher wohl ein Covert Ops ist; wie in ET. Es muss ein Fahrzeug begleitet werden und Barrieren errichtet bzw zerstört werden;wie in ET. Es soll free2play werden;wie ET.
ET in einem frischen Szenareo und neuer Grafik? Wir bleiben dran!!

Dirty Bomb Closed Alpha Begins, new Trailer

Published in DirtyBomb Misc

Image Get ready to deploy, Soldier! We’re hugely excited to announce that the Dirty Bomb Closed Alpha has officially begun, and we’ve started mailing out alpha keys to members of the Dirty Bomb Founder’s Club. If you’ve already joined up, keep checking your inbox. If you’re dying to get into the Closed Alpha, visit the Founder’s Club website . You’ll be directly supporting Dirty Bomb’s development, and are able to shape what the game becomes through your feedback.

Dirty Bomb is powered by a great little tool we call Echo, and it’s a big part of why we’re able to give you access to Dirty Bomb this early in development. Developed by the talented chaps over at Fireteam, Echo basically collects and visualises detailed data from all of Dirty Bomb’s multiplayer servers, allowing us to balance and optimise the game in ways we couldn’t before.
We’re so excited by Echo that we’ve put together a brand-new video showcasing its role in Dirty Bomb’s development. Take a look:


Image Das Team von Splash Damage hat einen wichtigen Meilenstein bei der Entwicklung des Free2Play-Shooters Dirty Bomb erreicht. Wie aus einer offiziellen Meldung hervorgeht, hat vor kurzem die sogenannte Closed-Alpha begonnen.

Wer an diesem geschlossenen Alpha-Test teilnehmen möchte, muss sich zunächst auf der offiziellen Webseite für den kostenpflichtigen »Founder's Club« anmelden. Allerdings ist der Zugang zur Alpha nur dann mit sofortiger Wirkung garantiert, wenn du dich für die 120 Dollar teure Legendary-Variante entscheidest, die noch weitere Extras (zum Beispiel ein T-Shirt und ein digitales Fan-Kit) mit sich bringt. Die anderen Varianten garantieren zumindest eine bevorzugte Auswahl bei den Teilnehmern.

Wie lange die Closed-Alpha laufen wird, ist bisher allerdings noch nicht bekannt. Unter anderem kommt Dave Johnston zu Wort, der einst die Karte Dust für Counter-Strike designt hat.

WolfenDoom - Blade of Agony C1

Published in Game News

WolfenDoom - Blade of Agony: Chapter 1 - The Staff of Kings
Blade of Agony is a story-driven FPS. The project is inspired by WWII shooters from the 90's and early 2000's, like Wolfenstein 3D, Medal of Honor, and Call of Duty, but with faster-paced gameplay in the spirit of Doom! The game can be played standalone using the GZDoom engine as a base.

Story: It's 1944, and the war approaches its peak. The U.S. has joined the Allied forces, and the Soviets are pushing back the front in the east. The tides of war are turning, and the Führer's victory seems more and more beyond his grasp. However, the Axis Forces, refusing to capitulate, have grown obsessed with human experiments and occult artifacts, in which they see a potential escape from their final Doom. The Allied leaders reject this possibility as nonsense, nonetheless, some still fear what the Führer might be up to. The situation is nebulous, however, and little is certain.
You are Cpt. William "B.J." Blazkowicz, an Allied spy, a fearless risk-taker, and the greatest soldier to ever take up arms in World War II. Your role has changed, though; you've retired from active duty, and now you spearhead operations as a systems analyst. You thought it would be the right choice--leading and motivating instead of doing the dirty work--but lately you've grown restless. At least until a few days ago, when you received an encrypted message from your old friend and comrade Cpt. Douglas Blake, calling you back to duty...

wolf boa logo

Features: Blade of Agony is much more than just a pastiche of the classic shooters that inspired it; the project will offer a unique experience. It also has many features not often seen in source port projects--Blade of Agony truly pushes GZDoom to its limits.

    7 playable and unique levels in Chapter One (over 20 in the full game)
    Orchestra-quality game music
    Voice acting and ambient soundscapes
    A combination of low-poly models and sprite assets to create the perfect retro feeling
    Devastating armaments from the battlefields of WWII
    Interactive NPCs that support the twisted plot's progress and help you understand the game
    Beautiful special effects (weather, elements, explosions, etc.)
    Much, much more!
