World of Warplanes

Wargaming.net (www.Wargaming.net), the award-winning videogame publisher and developer behind world-famous franchises (World of Tanks, Massive Assault series and Order of War), announces World of Warplanes, based on military air dominance ranging from the 1930’s through the 1950’s.

World of Warplanes is a stand alone Free to play game being developed by the team that created the award winning and highly acclaimed game, World of Tanks. World of Tanks (www.WorldofTanks.com) is a team-based massively multiplayer online game dedicated to armored warfare in the mid-20th century. An advanced system of vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try out the vehicles and weapons featured in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, punch deep into enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the power of heavy tanks to eliminate opposing forces, or become a high-powered sniper using long-range artillery, each unit type is extremely lethal and effective when commanded by a true tank ace.

“We are proud to be able to develop another high quality Free to Play game for the world’s gaming community,” said Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi. “World of Tanks has been extremely succesful and we look to bring the same high quality if not better to World of Warplanes.”

Duke Nukem Forever demo version has been launched an can be downloaded by those who have preordered the game or own the GOTY edition of Borderlands.


Unfortunately it seems that the PC version has some optimization problems, several players were unhappy with the mouse acceleration and the FOV.

Carmageddon: Reincarnation

The Carmageddon brand has been reacquired by the team that developed the original PC titles Carmageddon and Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now. Stainless Games today announced that a new title is in early development, called ‘Carmageddon: Reincarnation’.

“Carmageddon has returned to its Indie developer roots, and the time is right to bring the game to a new audience,” said Patrick Buckland, CEO and Stainless co-founder. “Originally an ambitious title that tested the hardware limits of its day, we’re excited that the game will finally get the showcase it deserves on today’s platforms.”

“Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success.” said Neil Barnden, Executive Director and Stainless co-founder. “All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt.”

“I was in the war!” Patrick added.

Now in the early stages of pre-production development, ‘Carmageddon: Reincarnation’ is slated for release in 2012. Stainless Games is actively seeking a partner with whom to move the project on to full production.

‘Carmageddon: Reincarnation’ is being developed for digital download, for which Stainless Games have built an enviable worldwide reputation, with numerous cross-platform releases and multiple No.1 titles on XBLA.
