Developer Diary #8 takes you straight to the heart of the World of Warships experience: its game engine. This complex beast consists of the game client itself, along with the server engine, both of which work in harmony to create an unparalleled gaming experience.

Viewers will learn how the game client and server client interact, process sound, graphics, and how they function with gaming peripherals. Discover how the BigWorld engine runs through the core of World of Warships and the ways the team implement this technology to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Another important element in World of Warships is how the highly-detailed graphics interact with the game client. Epic visuals like massively intricate vessels, realistic oceans and beautifully rendered environments require a team of pros to get the most of a player’s hardware which, naturally, comes with its own set of challenges. To complement this, the World of Warships development team will discuss what exciting enhancements players can expect to hit the seas in the near-future.

The Battlefield 4 Battlelog has word that the Battlefield 4 summer update is now live, which includes the new Night Operations DLC as a free release for the military shooter sequel. Here’s a Battlefield 4 Night Operations cinematic trailer and here’s word on the release:

It’s time to turn out the lights. The Battlefield™ 4 Summer Update is now rolling out worldwide for all platforms today, September 1st, 2015. Battlefield 4 Night Operations, a free* DLC release for all Battlefield 4 players, is also rolling out today in most territories (with PS3/PS4 in Europe coming on September 8).

Check out the Summer Update notes here!

Night Operations includes Zavod: Graveyard Shift, the first map for Battlefield 4 that takes place entirely at night. As you might expect, this changes things up – instead of being able to rely on your eyes, you’re going to need to listen closely, and focus on tools like night scopes and your radar to survive. We put together a tactical strategy guide with some tips for players looking for that competitive edge.

Ready to try out the Graveyard Shift? It supports Conquest, Rush, Obliteration, Team Death Match, Domination and Gun Master, so head out and make your enemies afraid of the dark.

gary-grigsbys-war-in-the-west-logoGary Grigsby’s War in the West is unprecedented in its historical depth, detail and scope among computer wargames that depict the entire Western Front of World War II both on land and in the air. War in the West is a “monster game” by any measure, but retains the ease of play that made its predecessor, War in the East, a classic.

Nevertheless, 2by3 Games has not been resting on their laurels. The team was eager to add more material and many improvements to the game. The result of all these efforts is Operation Torch, a stunning expansion that covers not only the eponymous operation by the combined forces of the Western Allies against the Afrika Korps after El Alamein, but also much more!

We are now ready to announce that this great expansion will be available on the 8th of October!

As reported here, the game will use the enhancements made for the base game (for the full list of features please visit Grigsby’s War in the West product page) adding new scenarios with plenty of strategic options (like the 1945 Campaign scenario that starts on the 16th December 1944 and runs to the end of the war in Europe, playable both on the Allied or Axis side), both historical and what if scenarios.

This is a title that every true wargamer simply cannot miss!

Get more information about the game on its official product page.

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West: Operation Torch is an expansion for War in the West and requires the base game to play.

Wargaming is excited to announce that the revamped Global Map is now live in Europe, North America, Asia and Korea . A total reimagining of the previous Global Map, it introduces highly-anticipated Clan Wars integration, a completely revamped interface, and a hugely expanded map .

Strongholds and Global Map have been combined, allowing players to earn a new form of currency: Influence. Influence is earned when battling for provinces and in Skirmishes, which can then be used to bid on locations, giving Clans a chance to claim any area across the map. This new in-game currency can also be invested into these regions, raising its Province Income, as well as purchase Divisions, autonomous units. Divisions are a fully equipped battle unit with necessary number of tanks that does not depend on the number of members in the Clan.

Further good news for Clans is the ability to reap more Province Income via upgrading their ELO rating. With the new Global Map, the combined revenue of all provinces can be up to three times as much as before, and at max level, the new Global Map will being producing 10 million Gold daily.

A revamped UI and in-game tutorial, refined by the players, makes it even easier to jump into the battle. With the addition of flexible settings to vehicle tier, type and nation, players no longer just require Tier 10 vehicles; now Tiers 6, 8 and 10 are all available. Combined with a newly implemented seasonal model, events this year will earn players great rewards.

“The passion and growth of veteran Clan Wars players has shown us that we needed to create a bigger and better Global Map experience,” said Natallia Pershyts, Product Manager of Clan Wars. “The new Global Map has opened the door for a huge Clan Wars audience. In the future, we are looking forward to bringing this mode to other great Wargaming titles.”
