RuneScape brings a Jurassic spark to the MMO with ‘The Land Out of Time’


Wednesday 22nd May 2019, Cambridge, UK – The roars of creatures long dead are set to sound in RuneScape in July with the arrival of a brand-new landmass – and dinosaurs – to its world of Gielinor, Jagex today announced in a teaser trailer.

Pulled from the ancient past by the recently revealed antagonist Kerapac, the new environment of Anachronia – The Land Out of Time – sees players arrive on the dino-inhabited island to try and track the dragonkin as he continues working on his mysterious and nefarious plan.

Available for RuneScape members, the island’s ancient shores and deadly jungles will be accessible to new, current and returning players alike. Adventurers looking to follow the storyline over future updates require just three skills (Mining, Smithing, and Divination) to be level 50 or above, along with the completion of two quests: The Needle Skips and You Are It.

Promising a host of new and exciting places to explore, along with new skilling activities, more information about The Land Out of Time will be released throughout June towards launch.


Just Cause 4 Los Demonios


The premier over-the-top action sandbox experience gets even crazier! Prepare for an all-out battle against the demonic forces from an ancient past, in the all-new Los Demonios DLC for JUST CAUSE 4, releasing July 3rd, 2019, on XBOX ONE®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

When Rico & Javi, investigate a newly discovered temple off the shore of Solis, an archaeologist working with the Black Hand unexpectedly releases an ancient demonic force from its imprisonment.

A parasitic infestation now spreads across Solis, terrorizing its inhabitants and attacking any Black Hand forces that stand in its way. Rico must tackle a horrifying new threat and seek out answers to eradicate the demon invasion from the island permanently, before it’s too late!

Discover a completely new sandbox gameplay experience with Los Demonios, as demonic hordes, pulsing tendrils and spore-filled clouds infest the towns and people of Solis in an exciting new supernatural addition to JUST CAUSE 4.

Face the demons across new missions that will require all the skills and tools at Rico’s disposal to emerge victorious. Vicious demons spit corrosive projectiles, possess soldiers, and even take over military vehicles and turn them against Rico.

Seamlessly integrating into the JUST CAUSE 4 sandbox, the new missions enhance the crazy open world experience further and provide a return to the popular liberation gameplay of the JUST CAUSE 3. Introducing new weapons and equipment to unlock, including the Demon Crossbow and Demon Egg Supply Drop, Los Demonios lets you take the new tools of destruction into the open-world sandbox of JUST CAUSE 4 for explosive new action packed moments of glorious mayhem.

“Los Demonios is the second DLC pack in the ‘Dare Devils, Demons and Danger' Expansion Pass, and it brings a totally new experience to JUST CAUSE 4,” said Bryan Rodriguez, Creative Producer at Avalanche Studios. “For the first time, Rico is tangling with an otherwordly threat that will push him to his limits. This is our chance to see if Rico is as good at squashing demons as he is at toppling dictators!”"


The JUST CAUSE 4 Spring Update is in full effect! JUST CAUSE 4 has improved vastly since launch, with improved graphical elements across the board on all formats, as well as gameplay tweaks for a smoother player experience. Today, a massive patch rolled out that completely changes the world lighting, improving the way light interacts with the environment and bringing considerable visual upgrades to the JUST CAUSE 4 sandbox world. In addition to this, it also includes destructible statues & train bridges, new chaos objects to destroy in the open world, more ammo and a dialled-up ‘heat’ system that will have the Black Hand challenging Rico like never before.

You can read more about the improvements to JUST CAUSE 4 on the Developer Blog:

Gold Edition purchasers will receive 7 days early access to the JUST CAUSE 4 Los Demonios DLC. Gold access begins on June 26th, 2019.

Legacy of Discord, the legendary ARPG, has rolled out a fresh update including mercenaries, new battle modes and new gameplay possibilities


YOOZOO Games, Shanghai — May 2019 | Sometimes known as ‘soldiers of fortune’ mercenaries are an arbitrary factor in any conflict. Often primarily concerned with lining their pockets — frequently at the expense of ethics — they’ll fight for whoever pays them. Which is your good fortune, as it means combat in Legacy of Discord has levelled up considerably with their inclusion.

You need never go into combat alone again: up to three mercenaries will fight with you in battle; with one fighting at a time. Once dead, mercenaries can be revived when switching maps or when the player is revived after dying. They are also very powerful when brought into the Celestial Tournament (when players use the all-new Mercenary function).

Their inclusion across the game, essentially, offers more gameplay possibilities: Pets, Wrathwings, Mounts, and Metamorphs can all be socketed to a mercenary, boosting your battle rating and granting even more bonuses to player attributes; and the better the item socketed, the bigger the bonus!

The above mentioned Celestial Tournament is an all-new battle mode — where Guild members can build a team of 5 to 10 people for matches. The first team to capture two flags for 30 seconds wins. (Hot tip: The Celestial Tournament is a great place for guild members to play together and get more honour; also, guilds with more members gain a greater advantage.)

Legacy of Discord has also featured on Google Play’s global recommended list this week. Be the first to check out the latest updates now — together to Battle!

Multiplayer action-focused looter-shooter XERA: Survival enters Early Access on May 24



Invercargill, New Zealand, May 2019: Spotted Kiwi today announced that following a successful five-month Open Alpha with over 10,000 active participants, its debut title will be entering Early Access on Steam on 24 May 2019, priced at $19.99 (USD), £15.49 (GBP), €16.79 (EUR).

When a prototype combat robot becomes self-aware, only a group of competing mercenaries can end a war that humanity cannot afford to lose…

XERA: Survival is an action-focused looter-shooter, designed from the ground up as a multiplayer, open world PvPvE experience with a persistent global gear stash that players can access from within the game and from any server.

It’s 2022. The world is in chaos after a prototype combat robot – banned by law and awaiting secure destruction by XERA Corporation – became self-aware, escaped and replicated on an industrial scale. Nation turned on nation in a fight for control over resources. With the attention of the world’s military on self-defence, mercenaries and disillusioned combatants have descended on a remote forest region to ransack the remains of XERA’s facilities, setting up two forward operating bases on each side of the forest. Between these bases there are no rules of engagement, as for some, nothing less than the future of the human race is at stake; for others, there is a potentially boundless paycheck. For all, the only imperative is survival.


Players venture out in search of glory, revenge, salvation or political leverage – and loot. Scavenge for weapons, ammo, food and water, medical supplies; craft the tools you need to survive a harsh and unforgiving forest environment. Deploy drones to scout, transport – or close the business a bullet left unfinished. And when you’re ready to store your loot – just make it back alive to either base.

XERA: Survival lets players choose their own pace of play from session to session. Use the night / day cycle or dynamic weather systems to your advantage – sneak about avoiding PvP combat and build your resources, focusing on PvE takedowns to scavenge the best loot. In the base you can trade safely with other players, or save to your server-side stash, which is persistent across servers globally. Alternatively, you can choose to tool up and raid as a lone wolf or teamed with up to three buddies. Take part in giant PvPvE compound events or missions you pick up from NPCs back in the base. And all the while, lose just the equipment you brought with you in the event you meet an untimely death – getting straight back into the fight, dropping where you want in the 4x4km world using regular helicopter insertions from the bases.

XERA: Survival is developed by Spotted Kiwi Interactive, an independent development company based in the deep south of New Zealand (Aotearoa) with a community-focused development ethos. Following an extensive Open Alpha period, the game is ready for Early Access and will continue to be enhanced and improved based both on existing development plans and suggestions and feedback from the community.
