Nordic Games delivered the news that the release date for Deadfall Adventures has now been confirmed as September 27th for the Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The development team at The Farm 51 state that they “have been working around the clock to ensure that the game is packed full of unique gameplay”. It will feature a single player campaign, multiplayer battle arenas and a newly announced survival cooperation mode.
In the long-forgotten temple complex, the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and Agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather’s stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten.
Developed using Unreal Engine 3, Deadfall Adventures is said to be full of spectacular jaw-dropping moments, as player’s battle natural and not-so-natural enemies across stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala. Assuming the role of adventurer Quatermain, players will encounter fiendish puzzles, deadly traps and stunning set pieces, making this one of the greatest adventures ever told – let alone played.
Deadfall Adventures will be released on September 27th 2013.
A leaked image has hit the net suggesting that EA’s upcoming Battlefield 4 BETA will go live across three platforms (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC) on September 24th 2013. This demo will give players the opportunity to prepare for battle on at sea, on land and in the air on the all-improved Frostbite 3 Engine technology.
Battlefield 4 was officially unveiled in March this year and is fueled by the next-generation power and fidelity of Frostbite 3, providing a visceral, dramatic experience unlike any other according to the developers DICE. Only in Battlefield can you demolish the buildings shielding your enemy. Only in Battlefield will you lead an assault from the back of a gun boat. Battlefield grants you the freedom to do more and be more while playing to your strengths and carving your own path to victory.
In addition to its hallmark multiplayer, Battlefield 4 features an intense, dramatic character-driven campaign that starts with the evacuation of American VIPs from Shanghai and follows your squad’s struggle to find its way home.
When official announcements are made – we’ll keep you updated, but the image looks pretty real indeed.

2K has announced today that The Bureau: XCOM Declassified will be released on August 20th, 2013 in North America and August 23rd, 2013 internationally. XCOM: Enemy Unknown was developed by Firaxis Games and rebooted the classic franchise, the devs state now that ‘The Bureau’ will deliver a new experience within the XCOM universe.
Set in 1962 at the height of the Cold War, The Bureau tells the origin story of the clandestine XCOM organisation’s first encounter with a mysterious and devastating enemy. Originally established as America’s covert defense against the Soviet Union, The Bureau must adapt and overcome a threat unlike anything the world has faced before. As special agent William Carter, players will call the shots and pull the trigger, leading their squad of agents in the high-stakes secret war for humanity’s survival. Paramount to repelling the outside threat is The Bureau’s ability to cover-up the enemy’s existence in order to prevent worldwide panic.
In the spirit of the XCOM franchise, The Bureau’s calculated combat design requires players to think and act tactically. The game’s third-person perspective gives the player a sense of spatial awareness and grants them the freedom to transition in and out Carter’s unique Battle Focus ability seamlessly – heightening the tactical shooter action. The Bureau also fully embraces the concept of permanent consequence. As our last line of defense, every command can mean the difference between life and death for Carter, his squad and mankind.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified can be pre-ordered today at all participating retailers. Those who pre-order will receive the Codebreakers side-mission as a bonus. In this special campaign side-mission, a communications facility responsible for intercepting and interpreting the enemy’s transmissions has gone dark. Special Agent Carter and his squad must make contact with any remaining personnel and investigate the incident.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fans can scream for joy as another premium offering of Downloadable Content titled “Uprising” is available on LIVE from 16th April. The game’s second DLC pack of the year will include four new exotic multiplayer maps, plus an exciting new Zombies experience called “Mob of the Dead” that takes players to Alcatraz with four of the actors behind some of Hollywood’s most iconic mobsters, including Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen.
Following tradition of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops fan-favourite Zombies mode “Call of the Dead,” Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising’s wildly creative new “Mob of the Dead” Zombies experience finds the four prohibition-era mobsters, Billy Handsome (Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Palmentiri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Madsen) serving time in Alcatraz Prison, only to discover that being behind bars is the least of their problems. With plans to break out of Alcatraz foiled by the rise of the undead, the quartet of inmates will have to lean on their mob-derived skills with firearms, blunt instruments and improvised weaponry as they battle the zombies infesting and overrunning the island. In order to survive, players must work their way through the steel cells and aging concrete buildings while fighting off a multitude of zombified prisoners and guards trapped on the island with them. Additionally, if a player becomes an unfortunate victim, “Mob of the Dead’s” new feature known as “Purgatory” sends players into the afterlife. This new twist on Zombies gameplay is ripe with its own set of objectives and offers fans a truly new and unique experience.
Uprising also delivers another four new, exotic and diverse multiplayer maps set around the globe for fans to jump into. “Magma” is a modern Japanese village with volcanic eruptions carving multiple paths throughout the town. “Encore” takes place in the aftermath of a deserted London music festival and leaves numerous opportunities for run-and-gun, close quarters combat. “Vertigo” is a futuristic high rise in India housing a high-tech lab featuring dizzying vistas and multi-tiered pathways. Finally, “Studio” is a contemporary remake of “Firing Range,” a fan-favourite multiplayer map from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops. “Studio” is a Hollywood movie back lot with a variety of cinematic themes that range from Sci-Fi to the Old West.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising will be available first, exclusively on Xbox LIVE for 1200 Microsoft Points on 16th April.
Microsoft has outed the Battlefield 4 release date for current-gen systems as October 29th 2013. In a post made by EDITER today on the Xbox blog the revealed date appeared in the opening paragraph.
Only in Battlefield can players go through a building instead of around it, eject from a jet and take out the enemy mid-free fall, or flip a tank. DICE, a studio of Electronic Arts, announced that Battlefield 4 will arrive on the Xbox 360 on October 29, 2013.
EA themselves have only given a vague date as of Fall 2013 with many gamers focussed on a likely next-gen version which is due to drop this year also. However, as a confirmed date for the release of the next-gen Xbox hardware has not been announced; with all the great AAA games heading our way this Fall – it’s a safe bet a new console will be out in time for their release.

Battlefield grants you the freedom to do more and be more while playing to your strengths and carving your own path to victory.
