Flyhigh Works is delighted to release Ambition of the Slimes on Steam. Previously on 3DS and then Switch, it now brings its spin on RPG norms to the PC audience – it’s available for $4.99 / £3.99 / 4,99€ (with variations per territory).

So, what’s it about? Well, the weakest monster in RPGs, the “Slime”, is now ready to fight back!

Slimes are surprisingly versatile in this strategic RPG – they can use magic, multiply and use various special abilities. Despite all of this they usually get bashed into a mush, not always by heroes but sometimes by village commoners – ouch!

That changes in Ambition of the Slimes, thanks to the ability to “Claim” enemies. Under your command Slimes are able to take control of their opponents’ bodies by jumping into their mouths! Use this Claim ability to inform your strategy in battle, taking over strong enemies and leading the Slimes to victory. As you fight through the levels you’ll learn all about the ambition of the Slimes; this could be the most surprising fantasy RPG you’ll ever play!

Get closer to the nightmare than ever before in The Evil Within 2. If the horrific world and hideous creatures weren’t terrifying enough already, the entirety of the game can now be played in first-person on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, thanks to the latest free update. You can check out our newly released first-person mode trailer at https://youtu.be/gIkC8DXT2fI.

If you already have The Evil Within 2, changing to first-person is as simple as flipping a switch in the menu. You’ll be able to change this at any point, so you can experience the game however you like. If you haven’t had a chance to check out The Evil Within 2 and want to try it out, you can download the Free Trial and play through the opening chapters of the game including the new first-person mode. All save data will carry over if you choose to upgrade to the full game.

“A lot of players like playing horror games in first-person, so for those who want to see some of the game’s situations through Sebastian’s eyes, it’s a really neat experience,” said Tango Gameworks’ producer, Shinsaku Ohara. “I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you’re in third-person. Also, being able to see our environments and enemies up close allows players to get an even better look at how much effort went into their designs.”

Be sure to check out Bethesda.net for even more details and insights on the new first-person mode from the team at Tango Gameworks!

The Evil Within 2  has been rated M for Mature by the ESRB. For more information about the game, visit www.TheEvilWithin.com.

MAKE … WAR, NOT LOVE! VALENTINE’S DAY BRINGS NEW CHAMPION AND LIMITED-TIME EVENT TO THE POST-APOCALYPTIC WORLD OF ESPORTS-READY STRATEGY GAME INSIDIA!

Hate Conquers All in New Update for Italian Indie Developer Bad Seed’s Fast-Paced Turn-Based Free-to-Play Game Ahead of its February 27 Launch

MILAN, ITALY (FEBRUARY 14, 2018) Bad Seed — an Italian indie developer with four years of experience developing innovative and high-quality games — today celebrates Valentine’s Day by introducing the lovely and deadly Champion Coma the Shadeslinger to INSIDIA, their free to play, turn-based online strategy game for Windows PC, Mac and SteamOS / Linux devices.

Will this event be about love? Nope! In the world of INSIDIA, the degenerates of the wasteland celebrate war on this day instead. Survive Valentine’s Day and unlock the exclusive Heartbreaker skin for Coma in a special week-long pre-launch event! INSIDIA is currently available on Steam Early Access and officially launches on February 27, 2018.

Quick and deadly, new Champion Coma can dish out powerful chained attacks at medium range. However, to sustain her damage output, the Shadeslinger must carefully choose when to reload her gun, to avoid being caught with an empty barrel.

Coma’s unique abilities include:

Trigger Happy (Passive) – Every time an enemy Champion moves to a tile near Coma, she quickly pops a shot his way! This passive can trigger multiple times during each turn as long as Coma has enough bullets.

Reload – Coma reloads her trusty weapon and heals herself in the process. Guns are a gal’s best friend, after all.

Barrage – Coma unloads her gun on a single target, dealing damage for each fired bullet.

Want to unlock the special Heartbreaker skin? Challenge your friends and frenemies to battle by going to the official INSIDIA Facebook page and tagging them at the link. You’ll then receive an unlock code to the time-limited special Heartbreaker Coma skin.

INSIDIA — which has enjoyed fan acclaim since September 2017 while in open beta — features familiar mechanics that online strategy game fans love, mixed with a heavy dose of rapid-fire mayhem. Players must assemble their teams of four from a roster of steam knights, fierce punks, odd mutants and other survivors of a post-apocalyptic fantasy world, then take part in quick matches that demand on-the-fly decision making for perfectly coordinated chaos. The game’s unique combo system features simultaneous turns where both players never give up control of the action, introducing them to a new league of tactical depth. Enter the colorful yet brutal world of INSIDIA!

Thanks to its competitive nature and incredibly fun to watch gameplay, INSIDIA aspires to become a competitive esport game. It has been selected to be the first indie game of its kind featured on FACEIT, the leading platform for online competitions, with nearly 10 million members, joining such titles as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, Overwatch and more on the platform. INSIDIA‘s integration with FACEIT from launch allows players to easily take part in tournaments, leagues, ladders, hubs and more.

Check out INSIDIA’s release date trailer here:

INSIDIA is available now to play for free on Steam, with support for Windows PC, Mac and SteamOS / Linux devices at http://store.steampowered.com/app/592890/Insidia.

PROJECT CARS 2 CELEBRATES THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF PORSCHE WITH THE ‘PORSCHE LEGENDS PACK’, COMING IN MARCH 2018― UPDATE 4 IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR PC



BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. and Slightly Mad Studios are excited to announce the ‘Porsche Legends Pack’, the second expansion pack for Project CARS 2, will be available across all platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC) in early March.

Seventy years on from the launch of the very first Porsche road car in 1948―the Porsche 356―comes the Project CARS 2 ‘Porsche Legends Pack’, a visceral and unmissable celebration of Porsche’s 70th anniversary.

The ‘Porsche Legends Pack’ will come with: nine legendary cars hand-picked from the storied history of Porsche, one FIA-certified track intimately associated with Porsche―a first in any simulated racing game, 20 liveries, nine community events, and five new career events; all carefully crafted to integrate into the Porsche experience.

The nine iconic Porsche cars include their current GT-runner, the 2017 Porsche 911 RSR that will add this elite brand into Project CARS 2’s already essential line-up of GT racers.

The 911 RSR will join eight more historically significant Porsches hand-picked from the last 70 years, such as the 1972 Porsche 917/10―the car dubbed the “Can-Am Killer”―an analogue monster whose 5-litre flat-12 boxer was mated to two massive big-box turbos to create what many consider the most brutal car (1,200bhp!) in sportscar history.

Ahead of the ‘Porsche Legends Pack’, Slightly Mad Studios has released a new Update 4 for Project CARS 2 for PC’s via STEAM, which will be available soon for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Update 4 includes numerous performance and stability improvements, gameplay balance tweaking, UI & render enhancements, and extensive AI improvements across many locations and vehicle classes. For more information on Update 4, please visit the following website: https://pcars.games/PC2Update4
