Ashes of the Singularity Turtle Wars DLC Adds New Scenarios, Maps, and More. This is a press release with a few Chris Jones additions!
Planetary Warfare on a Massive Scale!
IGN Says: “One of those games that comes along every few years and slaps us in the face to remind us what the word “strategy” means.”
Plymouth, MI. – June 30, 2016 – Stardock has released the Turtle Wars DLC for Ashes of the Singularity. With new single player scenarios focused around the player building up defenses against seemingly impossible odds and additional new maps to keep multiplayer matches fresh, this update brings challenges for players of all levels.
The Turtle Wars DLC pack contains scenarios such as “Implosion”, “Mountaintop”, and more, plus new maps that offer a wider array of options for multiplayer matches.
“Our goal is to continue to create a variety of maps with open possibilities,” said CEO and President of Stardock, Brad Wardell. “Some of these new maps are ideal for things like a 2v1 match, even a 4v1. We’ve also made sure to include a large-sized 1v1 skirmish map, which will encourage players to build much bigger armies for more epic battles.”
The new scenarios in Turtle Wars bring the focus to having the player build up and maintain their defenses against mounting enemy pressure. In the “Eruption” scenario, the player has the command of a single Hyperion Dreadnought and a handful of defensive structures and must somehow hold out against enemy siege while trying to turn the tides of battle.
In another scenario, “Turtle Wars,” the player is faced with several indestructible factories that are mass producing swarms of frigates. In order to win, they must hold off against the enemy and take control of the factories before the rest of the army makes it through the mountains to finish them off. Kinda cool, huh?
“These new scenarios add a different type of challenge and call upon a certain playstyle,” said Wardell. “We know that players will enjoy trying something new and then comparing their scenario scores against others’ in our Hall of Fame.”

Every Father’s day in this house, My son and I play a 90s Playstation game called ‘Twisted Metal 2’. Ken ususally wins 90% of the games we play. In my opinion no Twisted Metal after that came close to the fun, feel, and replayability of TM2. If you can play for hours and not know where time goes, well, that’s the mark of a classic game.
Here’s Video of My son and I battling it out in a ‘secret level’ on TM2. I’m Spectre. (This Game Played in 2010) The tradition continues.
Intuitive Destruction, Dynamic Weather, the Largest-Ever Fully Player-Controlled Vehicles in Battlefield, and a New Multiplayer Game Mode Add Variety to the Dawn of All-Out War.
This is one epic looking game – Chris Jones
STOCKHOLM, Sweden – June 12, 2016 – DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) studio, invites you to join a world of discovery and epic warfare through ever-changing battles only in Battlefield™ 1.
Intuitive destruction and dynamic weather ensure that no battle is ever the same. For even more gameplay possibilities, carve a path through walls and buildings, take down your enemies in creative ways, and leave your mark on the terrain around you through intuitive destruction. Through your actions, the pristine world around you will change into a battle-scarred landscape, changing the world forever.
With dynamic weather you will need to adapt your tactics to weather changes as the elements play a part in the battle. Playing the same map on a bright day, in heavy fog, or rain will impact what you see and hear, forcing you to adapt your play style on an ever-changing battlefield.
Operations introduces a completely new way to play multiplayer. In Battlefield 1 will you play a series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts. Play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match, as you try to conquer territory or push back your attackers.
At those times when you feel all is lost, call in the Behemoths – the largest fully player-controlled vehicles ever seen in Battlefield. Roam the battlefield and rain fire on your enemy to break their defenses. All-out war never felt so epic. Take control of the Armored Train, Air Ship, or the Battleship to dominate the battlefield across land, air, and sea.
“With Battlefield 1 we’re looking to deliver the most dynamic shooter ever. We want to make sure that no battle is ever the same for the players, and with the introduction of Operations, we’re giving the fans variety for game play and creativity,” said Aleksander Grøndal, Senior Producer, DICE. “Plus, with the new Behemoths, only in Battlefield 1 can you bring an Air Ship to a dogfight.”
The Battlefield 1 open beta will be live later this summer. To get early access, players can sign up to become a Battlefield Insider HERE. They will also get access to in-game rewards, exclusive content, and sneak peeks at news about Battlefield 1 (plus news about other EA games, services, and events).

Battlefield 1 will launch on October 21st, 2016 worldwide on Xbox One, Origin™ for PC, and PlayStation®4. Players who pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition can begin playing on October 18*.
EA Access and Origin Access members can play Battlefield 1 for a limited time before launch with Play First Trials. EA Access members receive a 10% discount when they purchase a digital version of the game on Xbox Live, and Origin Access members get a 10% discount when they purchase the game through Origin**.
June 5, 2016 — Keep your ears peeled for the ref’s whistle because the special in-game event Tank Football 2016 will be taking to the field from Friday June 10. In this event, which will be on for nearly a month, 3-vs-3 teams compete to score the most goals in a seven minute match. With no feet, players must use their tank’s gun to blast the ball around the pitch and into the opponent’s net. During Tank Football 2016, all players will be credited the unique T-62a Sport (T-62a S) with a free Garage slot. To join the event, all you have to do is select your T-62a S and click the Battle! button. Looks like fun!
Tank Football 2016 puts its own twist on the beautiful game. During matches, your tank will be incapable of damaging or destroying another vehicle. However, you can shoot the tracks of your opponent’s tank and ram their vehicle to immobilize them. With the enemy out of action, this is the perfect time to break out your tekkers with a special football consumable—Turbocharger—temporarily speeding up your vehicle to reach that final third.
There are three stadiums to play in: Himmelsdorf Arena, Stade Eiffel, and Old Tankford. Tank Football 2016 will also let you tackle new battle missions; go it alone or platoon with up to three teammates. You can even deck your tank out with a range of customization emblems and flags of the countries taking part in this summer’s major European football event.
Additionally, there will also be a tank football tournament held. The registration period for it starts June 1 and will last until June 15. All you have to do is build a team of 3 players then prove your tank football skills. The four best teams get one year of Premium Account time and a Type 59 tank for each member. They will also have the chance to compete against the 4 best CIS teams for a chunk of a $5,000 prize pool.
At the end of the event, the T-62a S, Garage slot and flags of the countries taking part in Euro 2016 will be removed from players. However, any medals and emblems earned will remain with you as a memento of the event.
