The new devices will go on sale in Russia in June this year. The exact cost is still unknown.
When 11 bit studios released This War of Mine, many thought that is the pinnacle of creativity of this company, and that in the future the poles will develop this direction.
But the developers themselves were of a different opinion, deciding to undertake a socio-economic strategy Frostpunk they are even more excited, and I think that this game has even more chances to please the public.
All of that in a Frostpunk de unimaginably varied gameplay, and the survival of “the last town on Earth” will be much more difficult. Players will have to develop the technology to build dwellings, to determine the composition of the government, to get resources and all this in order to force the generator to provide more heat. The development would involve a lot of hard choices and personal human tragedies. The game will take place on the 24th of April, and in her face, we might get one of the so-called shadow hits. And may not get. For it is not the fact that the world wants to play in another Tropico, albeit in a specific situation.
Platinum Games, whose rows are the boys, had a hand in Bayonetta and Nier: Automata, announced shooter called World of Demons of the battles with mythical creatures from traditional and not very Japanese tales and legends. And, most importantly, the game will be exclusive to mobile devices.
The developers promise simplified management, and more than 80 of demons, with whom you will fight, alone and in cooperative mode. Judging by the videos shown, the game looks great, and this game would and PC-schnick and consolers, but maybe sometime later, because the management World of Demons imprisoned on the touch display. All of this will be available in shareware form, but for real money you can open more characters. The game will be released before the end of the year, first on iOS and then on Android.
The creators of the online shooter Dirty Bomb has published an open appeal to the Russian fans of the game, which commented on the situation.
The situation, briefly, is as follows: Roskomnadzor, according to the court, blocked the Telegram, which also affected the lock Amazon used by the authors of the game, resulting in fans of Dirty Bombs, can’t pump the last update, adds 64-bit client, and as a result can not run. Still not all, but many. And it all depends on personal provider, and in a hurry if he is to fulfill orders from above or not.
Developers complained that they can’t do anything, and they just have to wait. But we also note that it looks like this is the first game from Steam, which is blocked in Russia, unwittingly. For the same prohibited Company of Heroes 2 and that is sold freely. And it all depends on the further reactions of Amazon, because it is not excluded that the Dirty Bomb was not the last game, which will not have access to domestic gamers.
On the Network news spread of the imminent announcement of Gears of War 5. And not just quick and almost instantaneous. If you believe the author of the hearing, the announcement will take place this week.
Told an American rapper, known in their circles as Ice-T. He, taking advantage of good relations with developers and private participation in creation of the third Gear of War where he voiced Aaron Griffin – one of the heroes of the game, said the following: “news for the players: exclusive announcement of Gears will take place this week. Be ready.”
Hard to say what it will be. Perhaps something to reissue the console on the PC and probably will happen the announcement. But even if it will, then count on the game to the end of the year is unlikely.
Gears of War 4 was released as an exclusive for Windows 10 and Xbox One in 2016-m to year and were met overall, not bad, although the specific sensation is not produced, and awards received. Nevertheless, the series remains love and demand, so the announcement of a new part, no doubt, will be a loud event in the gaming industry.
