Overload

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 – Revival Productions is saying that Overload, the new six-degree-of-freedom tunnel shooter from the original creators of the critically-acclaimed 90s classic Descent, will be available for PC (Windows, Mac, & Linux) beginning May 31, 2018 for $34.99. The PlayStation4 and Xbox One versions will release Q3 2018.  Revival Productions was founded by Matt Toschlog and Mike Kulas, co-founders of legendary Parallax Software.  Revival created Overload, an FPS that combines the best of classic 6-Depth Of Field gameplay found in Descent with the latest in today’s technology to provide intense 3D action on PC, PlayStation4 and Xbox One.

“We started Overload as a nostalgic homage to Descent, but it’s really grown into something more. We were able to create a deep story with voice, a new challenge mode and add VR support. And all this is on top of graphics and sound we could only dream about 20 years ago,” said Mike Kulas, co-creator, Revival Productions.  Matt Toschlog added, “It’s been a blast creating this game, and we especially value the relationships we’ve formed with our Kickstarter backers and Early Access players.”

The legendary vanishing continent Atlantis, has resurfaced in Uncharted Waters Online! Appearing for the first time on the new Maris server relaunched through Papaya Play, Atlantis brings with it several benefits for Captains capable of reaching its shores, including:

  • Players can conduct ‘Ancient Technology Research’ in exchange for rewards with their home nation.

  • Players can commune with gods from classical mythology at Temples and receive unique powerful temporary ‘Blessings’.

  • A hidden dungeon can be accessed through the Temple of Poseidon, granting special rewards to players brave enough to enter.

DIGITAL EXTREMES DOUBLES DOWN

LONDON, ONTARIO

April 18, 2018 – Independent Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes is debuting the first Warframe of 2018, Khora, in tandem with Sanctuary Onslaught, a completely new team-based, survival-style game mode in the Beasts of the Sanctuary update this week for the PC version of Warframe®Beasts of the Sanctuary arriving on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this May.

Khora is a versatile dynamo of offensive and defensive power with a unique arsenal of attacks. The stylistically armor-clad Khora wields a snake-like metallic whip that strikes from a distance and commands a metallic Kavat (cat pet) that quickly engulfs enemies in a whole lot of pain. The new Sanctuary Onslaught mode, where Khora can be found, enables solo players, or a squad of up to four, to quickly dash through timed portals while blasting waves of increasingly powerful enemies. Both Khora and Sanctuary Onslaught together offer fresh new ways for Tenno to harness Warframe’s cooperative chaos, and both are free with the Beasts of the Sanctuary.

The 35th Warframe, Khora offers both deadly offensive attacks and team-oriented defensive tactics featuring four distinguished Abilities:

  • Whipclaw: Send enemies reeling with a deafening whipcrack.
  • Ensnare: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Disperse the trap with a crack of the whip.
  • Venari: Summon a ferocious, gleaming Kavat. Use again to cycle between Attack, Protect, and Heal postures.
  • Strangledome: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach.

New weapons and items available for Khora include the Dartgun, Quill Spear, Tenno Revolver Rifle, Zaw Parts, Quill Syandana, and Quill Alt Helmet.

Having debuted during the bi-monthly DevStreams this March, Sanctuary Onslaught is ready for action! This new cooperative and competitive mode challenges players to work together to survive endless waves of Warframe enemies standing in their way of escaping through the next portal. Players must quickly slay enemies en masse while proceeding through uniquely crafted environments to random portals to escape – and then do it all again, all against the clock!

Join us in-person on Saturday, July 7, 2018 for the third annual TennoCon! Meet fans from across the world in London, Ontario, Canada, for the biggest, best Warframe event of the year. Tickets are nearly sold out but are still available at Warframe.com/tennocon. For those unable to attend, viewers can tune into twitch.tv/warframe to watch one of the biggest reveals of the year coming to Warframe during TennoLive starting at 3 pm PST/ 6 pm EST on Saturday, July 7.

Eve Online Into The Abyss

Into The Abyss

EVE Online: Into the Abyss

Into The Abyss: This expansion pushes the limits of your EVE experience with new enemies, gameplay and visuals.

15 April 2018 – Reykjavik, Iceland

At the EVE Fanfest, CCP announced ‘Into the Abyss,’ the newest expansion for EVE Online, their deep and uniquely player-driven spaceship MMO game. Launching in May 2018, EVE Online: Into the Abyss is delivered as a free update to all players, both for those with subscriptions and those playing for free.

EVE Online: Into the Abyss injects ground-breaking, transformative gameplay into EVE Online and presents a new adventure for players, inviting you to explore dangerous uncharted territory with strange new inhabitants and potentially vast rewards. This content will be just as unfamiliar to veteran EVE players as it is to novice players entering the game today.

‘Into the Abyss’ adds exploration and survival gameplay in the form of Abyssal Deadspace, a brand new hostile environment filled with hazardous environmental effects and mysterious adversaries, the Triglavian Collective. Players can enter pockets of Abyssal Deadspace from almost anywhere in New Eden. On entry, players fight and explore their way through a series of unpredictable encounters. You use your skills to take on growing risks in the hope of coming out the other side with high value cargo.

Players search for the new mutaplasmids, only found in Abyssal Deadspace. Mutaplasmids can be combined with existing modules to transform them into Abyssal modules, potentially increasing their power vastly or breaking them beyond repair. However, the challenges that players confront become more difficult the deeper they venture into Abyssal Deadspace… and failure means death. Faced with increasing danger from perilous encounters; do you continue and risk your spaceship in the hope of finding greater riches, or make your way home to exploit your rewards?

15 Years of EVE ONLINE!

Celebrating its 15th anniversary in May, EVE Online is the world’s most renowned videogame sandbox, with a rich history of compelling stories, battles, triumph as well as defeat. Players have near limitless ability to create their own destiny in the context of hundreds of thousands of capsuleers worldwide. You choose your own unique way to live amongst the stars, wage war, broker deals, as well as harvest resources, gain and lose territory and all the adventures in-between.

“At CCP, our mission is to build together with our players a true virtual world, with real relationships and real emotions and consequently, real stories,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CCP’s Chief Executive Officer. “With EVE Online remaining strong and vibrant after 15 years, there are great strides towards realizing that ambition. Nevertheless, I truly feel that our best work is ahead of us and that EVE’s amazing single-shard sandbox design will continue to dazzle, amaze and eventually outlive us all.”

This is the most exciting time to join EVE Online. New, unexplored space has just been discovered that all players can reach. What is beyond? And who are the Triglavians?
