SEGA announced today that ‘The Trigger’, the fifth add-on pack for survival horror Alien: Isolation, will be available to download from today. Seeing players compete against the clock across three terrifying new maps for Alien: Isolation’s Survivor Mode, ‘The Trigger’ may be the game’s most challenging add-on to date.

Set before the events of Alien: Isolation, ‘The Trigger’ puts players in the shoes of Sevastopol Station’s Ricardo. Across the three new maps, players will find a new terror around every corner. The creature is quick and cunning and the synthetics ruthless and relentless; both are brutal and deadly.

Prioritising the lives of the station’s inhabitants over his own survival, Ricardo will do whatever he can to assist Marshal Waits in his plan to destroy the creature. There was a package of explosives with one of the marshals but nothing has been heard of him for some time. If Ricardo can secure Prisoner Processing and escape the creature, there’s a chance he can track down the marshal in Synthetic Storage and blast the creature into the depths of space.

Alien: Isolation is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Gamesoft, a brand new Australian development studio based in Sydney, has today announced its debut game, Clockwork, published by Appsquare. A beautiful, atmospheric 2D platform adventure, Clockwork promises a touching, melancholy narrative experience supported by challenging time-manipulation puzzles.

Says Vishal Gumber, CEO of Gamesoft, "Tucked away in the busy lanes of Sydney's oldest suburb, the talented team at Gamesoft has worked tirelessly for the last eight months on this mind-boggling game.

"Clockwork is by no means an indie game, even though it is Gamesoft's debut. Our young team is ready to take on the best of AAA when Clockwork releases later this year."

Clockwork is set in the great mechanical city of Watchtower, where the last survivors of a great plague have found shelter within metal walls and metal bodies. Watchtower is divided by poverty and technology; the glittering spires of its upper tiers towering over the thrumming power plants and smoking factories of the industrial slums.

Players control a young boy named Atto who, thanks to his clockwork companion Milli, is able to duplicate himself and slip through time in order to overcome the obstacles heading his way.

Says Daniel McMahon, Clockwork's lead writer, "Clockwork is a story about unlikely friends coming together to try and fix an imperfect world in a time-bending puzzle-platforming adventure story. We want to ask players the question: What if you could go back in time, to before everything changed?"

Planned for a digital release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and mobile platforms, Clockwork will launch later this year.


Deco Digital & Bevel Studios have launched a new pre-release trailer for ‘Pneuma: Breath of Life’ and have now unveiled that the much anticipated Steam release will be coming to PC with full Oculus Rift DK2 support on the 27th February 2015 alongside the Xbox One version. This is the first game fuelled by the power of Unreal Engine 4 to release on Xbox One and is set to challenge player’s expectations of videogame storytelling through unique gameplay mechanics; all through the eyes of a god.

Pneuma: Breath of Life provides players with a relentless determination to solve every puzzle, progressing through a narrated story of self-discovery, exploring the fundamental nature of being. Pneuma's story is one that can only be told through the interactive medium of video games. This is a difficult puzzler designed to force players to think outside the box and explore beyond what they know as reality through the eyes of a god, voiced by award winning voice actor, Jay Britton.

Pneuma’s puzzles consist of environmental challenges that require perception, observation, and lateral thinking skills to succeed. The observation mechanic allows you to Lift bridges, rotate platforms and move entire rooms all with the power of your mind, which is enhanced even further with the Oculus Rift DK2 support in the Steam version. Playing Pneuma isn't about your skill with a controller, it's about how you perceive and analyse situations. PC and Xbox players will need to push their brains to their limit in this exciting new first person puzzler as Pneuma contemplates the nature of reality and you explore the ontological mystery of the Breath of Life.

“With the release so close now we can’t wait to see player’s reactions to the final game. Being able to say that we’re coming to Steam on the same day as Xbox One is very exciting for us as we want as many people as possible to be to experience the story of Pneuma. This new cinematic trailer gives a glimpse at Pneuma’s world which you’ll be able to experience in full 27th February 2015.”

“It’s finally here,” said Jason Wishnov, CEO of Iridium Studios, who has not slept much lately and he should probably get some soon. “This is an unprecedented experience, and we’re thrilled to bring it to gamers around the world. We love you guys.”

A launch trailer has been released that shows the full breadth of the game’s technology in action. In addition, for the first week of release, players who purchase the game on Steam will get a free copy of Iridium Studios’ first title, Sequence, absolutely free.

Fatshark has announced that BAFTA award-winning composer Jesper Kyd will provide the soundtrack and music for Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, a co-operative action first person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy universe. Vermintide is scheduled for release in the second half of 2015, for Windows PC, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

A BAFTA award-winning composer, Jesper Kyd is renowned for creating unique scores with a diverse array of live instrumentation and manipulated sounds. His immersive soundtracks feature a mix of styles ranging from the iconic orchestral/electronic hybrid scores for the Hitman series (British Academy Award for Original Music) and the anthemic choral score for Freedom Fighters, to his four evocative scores for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series and the post-apocalyptic / sci-fi themes of the Borderlands Series.

“When we first began the search for a composer for Vermintide, Jesper Kyd was a name that kept coming up again and again - his iconic atmospheric compositions have become a benchmark in what can be achieved in video game music,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “We could not be more excited about what he has in store for Vermintide.”

“Working with indie developer Fatshark was one of those crazy challenges that rarely comes along,” said Jesper Kyd, “They wanted a score from the perspective of the Skaven inhabiting the Warhammer universe. Writing this score has been a bit like joining the Skaven clan and giving them a voice - it's been great, twisted fun.”

In Vermintide, the city of Ubersreik is under siege as players select from a band of five heroes with different play-styles and abilities, all equipped with unique gear and personalities. Working together cooperatively, players must use their individual attributes to survive an apocalyptic invasion from hordes of relentless, power hungry Skaven, across a range of environments stretching from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire.

Vermintide is scheduled for release in the second half of 2015, for Windows PC, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Think you already know the Zombie Army series? Think again. With two games in the franchise and a huge fanbase, Rebellion have already proved they know a thing or two about serving up intense and brutal zombie shooters, but with the forthcoming release of Zombie Army Trilogy they’ve upped the gore and a whole lot more…

  2. Two stunning remastered campaigns: feast your eyes on ten missions with updated animations, dynamic physics, and improved lighting, shadows and visual effects.

  7. Unified online community: team up online and take on any mission, from any campaign in the series. Compare kills with new combos, scores and leaderboards.
Zombie Army Trilogy will be released digitally for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 6th with a retail version also available in some regions.

As a thank you to those fans who supported the series on PC, Rebellion is still offering an exclusive discount of up to 60% to owners of the first two Nazi Zombie Army games via Steam.

From having Kirby ride on hamsters to turning him into yarn, Kirby games have always experimented with inventive visual styles and unique game play. Launching for the Wii U console on Feb. 20, the visually striking new adventure Kirby and the Rainbow Curse finds players controlling Kirby exclusively using the touch screen on the Wii U GamePad controller in a world made of clay.

By drawing lines on the touch screen with the stylus, the player creates Rainbow Ropes that will help Kirby navigate obstacles and defeat enemies. Three friends can hop in and out at any time using Wii Remote controllers to play as Waddle Dees and assist Kirby, and players can even use compatible amiibo figures once a day, per stage, to power up Kirby with special abilities.

“Kirby and the Rainbow Curse kicks off another absolutely stellar lineup of Wii U games for this year,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “In the first half of the year alone, Wii U owners will be able to adventure with Kirby, party down with Mario and his friends in Mario Party 10, build levels in the Nintendo eShop-exclusive Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars and experience Nintendo’s newest IP with the action-packed Splat oon.”

Unlike other games in the Kirby series, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is set in a beautiful “clay-ful” world. The controls are also easy to pick up for all types of players, since the game is played exclusively on the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad. The Rainbow Ropes will guide Kirby in the direction players want him to go, and drawing ropes in creative ways like a loop will even give Kirby a quick speed boost. Strategy not only comes into play in guiding Kirby, but also in the amount of Rainbow Ink used, as drawing Rainbow Ropes uses precious ink. By staying on the ground or collecting an ink bottle, players can refill the Rainbow Ink quickly. In addition to moving Kirby around, Rainbow Ropes can be cleverly used to solve environmental puzzles. Using a well-drawn rope can block a waterfall or uncover hidden areas.

Instead of his traditional copy abilities, Kirby can transform into powerful vehicles. As a tank, Kirby will move automatically and players must tap on the GamePad touch screen to shoot at approaching enemies. When traveling through the depths as a submarine, Kirby will move to the spot players tap on the touch screen. And as a rocket, drawing Rainbow Ropes will help navigate him to the goal.

Anyone that wants to experience Kirby and the Rainbow Curse with friends or family members is in luck! Up to three additional players can join the adventure at any time. As the player who controls Kirby draws Rainbow Ropes and taps the GamePad, other players use Wii Remote controllers (sold separately) to play as friendly Waddle Dee characters to assist Kirby and help discover the game’s numerous collectibles. While ultimately everyone works together to reach the goal, each player’s collected stars will display at the end of each stage, encouraging a little friendly competition.

Kirby, King Dedede or Meta Knight amiibo can each be used once a day to power up Kirby with special abilities. By tapping a Kirby amiibo to the Wii U GamePad, players receive an unlimited Star Dash within a stage, which usually can only be activated by collecting 100 stars. A King Dedede amiibo outfits Kirby with a hat that grants him six health bars instead of the normal four. And the Meta Knight amiibo gives Kirby a mask that lets him use a fast dash that blasts right through weaker enemies.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse launches for Wii U on Feb. 20 at a suggested retail price of $39.99. The game will also be available for purchase in the Nintendo eShop and at Nintendo.com.

Independent developer Fatshark announced today the development of Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, a co-operative action first person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy universe.  Vermintide is scheduled for release in the second half of 2015, for Windows PC, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

In Vermintide, the city of Ubersreik is under siege as players select from a band of five heroes with different play-styles and abilities, all equipped with unique gear and personalities. Working together cooperatively, players must use their individual attributes to survive an apocalyptic invasion from hordes of relentless, power hungry Skaven, across a range of environments stretching from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire.

“Combining gritty combat with cooperative multiplayer action, Vermintide will provide the player with a completely new perspective of the Warhammer Fantasy universe, through the eyes of the heroes they play,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “Staying true to the fantasy lore, with familiar foes and locations, we look forward to winning the hearts of enthusiasts and newcomers with this new take on the Warhammer story”.

The time of mortals is ending, and the reign of Chaos draws ever closer. The Dark Gods are at last united in a singular purpose, loosing their madness across the world as never before. In the Empire of Sigmar, Karl Franz's gaze is focused on the incursion of the savage northmen, but it is not the only threat. As the Chaos moon Morrslieb waxes full, shrill voices echo through tunnels gnawed far beneath the Empire's cities, and a Skaven host swarms towards the surface. It emerges first in the city of Ubersreik, a screeching mass that consumes all before it. Soon Ubersreik is a charnel-town, drowning beneath the malevolent shadow of the Horned Rat.

Yet even in the darkest times, there are always champions to light the way. As Ubersreik cowers, five heroes, united by capricious fate, carry the fight to the rat-men. It remains to be seen whether they have the strength to survive, let alone work together long enough to thwart the invaders. One truth, however, is beyond all doubt: should these five fall, then Ubersreik will fall with them.

It’s no secret that videogame fans are itching to get their hands on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. To help shoppers avoid the day-one rush, Nintendo is offering a new pre-purchase service for people wanting to start playing as soon as it goes on sale on Nintendo eShop, all without having to leave the comfort of their homes.

Starting today, Wii U owners who visit the Nintendo eShop can pre-purchase Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. From pre-purchase, most of the game’s data will be transferred to the purchaser’s Wii U system, and as soon as the game releases on Nintendo eShop at midnight on 21st November in North America, 28th November across Europe (23:00 on the 27th November in the UK), the final data needed to unlock the full game will automatically download.

This pre-purchase service offers a tremendous benefit to players, as they can avoid waiting in lines and be among the first people able to play the game once it arrives on their Wii U systems.


Iridium Studios, developer of the critically acclaimed Sequence, has unveiled just the barest fraction of the remarkable plot of There Came an Echo in a new, character-focused trailer. Beyond the insane action and innovative voice commands, the story reaches incredible levels of production quality thanks to its AAA voice cast, headed up by Wil Wheaton.

“We have the best voice cast in the history of indie games,” said Jason Wishnov, CEO of Iridium Studios. “Well, the guy from Bastion, he was really awesome. But we’re at least second.”

Joining Mr. Wheaton is Ashly Burch, Laura Bailey, Yuri Lowenthal, Cassandra Lee Morris, Rachel Robinson, and Cindy Robinson. The group braves extreme danger to uncover the mysteries around a seemingly unbreakable cryptographic lock and prevent a devastating secret from changing the very fabric of society.

Iridium Studios ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in March of 2013, and then procured further funding from Intel in a partnership to utilize their advanced Intel RealSense technology. They are very thankful to their fans around the world, regardless of gender, race, or beliefs.

For more details about the game and Kickstarter campaign, you can visit Iridium Studios’ website at www.playiridium.com.
