Dishonored

Game Informer has made public the first details about Dishonored, a new first-person stealth / action adventure in development at a studio located in Arkan (Arx Fatalis and known for Dark Messiah of Might & Magic).

Among the team members working on the new game is Harvey Smith, who has contributed to Thief and Deus Ex titles, so the game will consist of a series of open ended missions.

Players assume the role of Corvo, killing a bodyguard jailed legendary Empress. Besides its battle skills, Corvo will use a number of supernatural powers and devices that make him a very dangerous killer. Combined with environmental elements and AI, it offers players great freedom in planning actions and for each problem there are several solutions.

Also, there will be a “chaos” system that will keep track of damage done discreetly by the players, virtual world will be changed depending on the characters without them being punished for their actions or have to chose between good/evil.

LIMBO release date

Playdead studios announced that the PlayStation 3 version of LIMBO will be released on July 20 in Europe, and the PC version can be bought via steam from August 2.

TimeGate Studios continues to expand Section 8®: Prejudice™, breaking numerous laws of physics to jam more content into what is already a ridiculously value-packed offering. One of the year’s most acclaimed shooters gets even bigger in July with the announcement of the new Frontier Colonies Map Pack for the PC and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for only 320 Microsoft Points ($3.99). If that weren’t enough, TimeGate plans to unleash the new multiplayer Skirmish mode for Xbox LIVE Arcade, PC, and the PlayStation®Network later this month for the low price of $0!

The upcoming Frontier Colonies Map Pack includes two new maps for you to fight over, both on and offline. Desolation is a parched desert world haunted by the remains of a failed colonization attempt. Overseer is home to military facilities overlooking a habitable forest valley. Both maps are playable for all multiplayer game modes, including Conquest, Swarm, Assault, and the soon to be released Skirmish mode.

Touted by TimeGate’s game testers as “oh man, so awesome,” the new Skirmish mode pits the 8th Armored Infantry against the Arm of Orion in a team death match with a twist. Victory Points are awarded for kills and completed missions. Control Points cannot be captured or hacked in this game mode, though, so you’ll need to adjust your gameplay tactics.

The Frontier Colonies Map Pack will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 320 Microsoft Points on July 13 and on PC for $3.99 starting July 27. TimeGate plans to announce more about the free multiplayer Skirmish game mode and PlayStation®Network release, which is slated to release Summer 2011, so stay tuned!

Electronic Arts Inc., popularly known as EA, in association with Criterion Games, has come up with Burnout CRASH, the latest offering from the Burnout series. The game is expected to hit the markets in the fall of 2011.
Criterion Games, an Electronic Arts studio, is the developer of the Burnout franchise that has been internationally acclaimed and hugely successful. Games such as Burnout, Burnout 2, Burnout 3: Takedown, Burnout Revenge, Black, Burnout Paradise and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit form part of the popular series.

Burnout CRASH has three explosive modes available across the 18 crash junctions in six unique locations of gameplay. Players are awarded points for causing maximum traffic disruptions by crashing into cars, triggering explosions and destroying almost everything in sight. Loaded with new features, the players have a variety of vehicles to unlock, seek and destroy high-value targets and cause mayhem in the streets while enjoying the fast-paced game.

Gamers can also get an aerial view of the location as they have a top-down gameplay option. The game’s Autolog technology enables the players to connect, compete and compare scores to fight their way to earn the master of disaster crown, as well as use the all new Autolog Challenges feature to compete with their friends and fellow gamers.

Burnout CRASH can be played on Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox LIVE Arcade and Sony Corp.’s PlayStation Network.

Burnout CRASH will be one of the latest entrants into the violent genre of gaming. It seems the announcement of the game was strategically timed, as it comes just days after the U.S Supreme Court turned down a California law that prevented minors (below 18 years of age) from buying violent videogames, referring to the ban as an unconstitutional infringement on speech rights.

The favorable ruling added cheer to the videogame publishers whose games were designed to appeal to violent and so-called realistic instincts in people. It was all the more favorable for publishers, since hardcore gamers have shown a clear preference for these games, with the most violent games turning out to be the most successful ones.

Blue Byte studio responsible for The Settlers series, are working on developing a browser based game free-to-play entitled Empire Castle to be distributed by Ubisoft.

Players will need to establish an empire on which to develop using the over 40 types of buildings and 9 types of military units.

Those interested in participating in beta testing are invited to register on the official site.

Ubisoft presented the full list of the cars that will be found in DRIVER San Francisco.
