Age of Sail games are few and far between for reasons unknown. The last really good one was Akella’s Age of Sail II: Privateer’s Bounty although Shrapnel Games’ Salvo! came close. Perhaps the intricacies of sailing frightens off gamers even with the popularity of Russel Crowe’s Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. [A terrible, terrible film -ED] Game Labs has taken up the challenge with Naval Action, an MMOG. Since the game is in Early Access, we have an opportunity to see how such a game on an esoteric subject develops.

combat-air-patrol-2-logoSim155 Ltd. has announced that Combat Air Patrol 2 (CAP2) VR Beta 1 is available now in the Steam client’s ‘BETAS’ tab. Here’s the news release by Ed Scio at developer Sim155:

I’ve got to admit VR in CAP2 is now pretty damn cool! With the first implementation I was slightly skeptical of the experience, feeling nauseous etc but with ‘Cinema Mode’ implemented for non pilot views there’s no longer a bucket by my desk.

There’s a lot of minor updates/fixes to come for VR, including:

  • Allow MSAA rendering
  • UI currently not shown in pilot view (after pressing ‘ESC’)
  • Mission planner not shown in VR (enable 2D Mirror to view it if required)
  • Radio commands input method
  • Update VR during loading screens
  • Add an Oculus API option

Also, in VR obviously can’t see your keyboard for input so I’ll add a method for highlighting cockpit controls by looking at them then selecting via a new control input. This will let you manage MFD’s, flaps, water injection, counter measures, canopy latch, eject handle, upfront controls etc using the headset and one button. This method will also be implemented in non VR mode to work with gamepad right stick cockpit view.

Right, back to finishing v808 with a new carrier and in-flight refueling!

Today, Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio announced the next expansion for their hit grand strategy game Europa Universalis IV.

Thomas Paine wrote that laws get their force from the consent of those who agree to live under them. It is in this spirit of that Paradox Development Studio continues expand and improve Europa Universalis IV, with the upcoming Rights of Man.

This expansion to Paradox Development Studio’s best-selling historical strategy game introduces a number of small changes that add up to a deeper and more dynamic experience. Near the top of this list is the Great Power mechanic, where the most developed nations have access to new diplomatic options to bully or entice weaker neighbors. Keep that development going, or lose the powers you paid a high price for.

Rights of Man also adds a little more character to your monarchs, as they acquire traits that will give bonuses (or penalties) to your country, and affect how rival nations approach you. Beware the conqueror next door, but be nice to the generous king across the river – he may have some gold to spare in your time of need.

Other features coming in Rights of Man include:

  • New goals for Coptic and Fetishist religions
  • Greater control over adopting new cultures in your empire
  • Leader Traits giving battle hardened commanders added prowess
  • More detailed military instructions for Subject Nations
  • Revolutionary Republics now have Factions to balance
  • Ottoman Empire gets new Harem Politics events and options
  • AND MUCH MUCH MORE

As usual, the release of Rights of Man will be accompanied by a free update for all Europa Universalis IV players – and this one will have the first major overhaul of the technology system since launch.

The grandest historical strategy game is just getting grander. For more information on the game, click here.

call-of-duty-infinite-warfareZombies dudes and dudettes rejoice. Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. and Infinity Ward today unveiled ‘Zombies in Spaceland,’ the undead survival co-op mode launching on November 4 with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Immersing players in an all-new 1980s setting with a most excellent soundtrack from the era, Zombies in Spaceland transports fans into an original, action-packed storyline where they’ll fight as one of four classic ‘80s characters and battle the living dead in a space-themed amusement park full of deadly zombies, fun attractions and much more.

Watch the Zombies in Spaceland reveal trailer is live here.

“Call of Duty and zombies in particular has such an incredible history with passionate fans, which inspired us to take all the co-op action that has made the series so great and fuse it with one of our favourite decades in pop culture: the ’80s,” said Brian Bright, Project Director at Infinity Ward. “Zombies in Spaceland is an all-new zombies experience where day-glow meets fright nights. It’s accessible for new players, but also has a deep layer of progression, brimming with easter eggs and various game features that will be a blast for hardcore zombies fans. We can’t wait for fans to go hands-on this fall.”

Zombies in Spaceland tells the story of four aspiring actors who come upon a mysterious movie theatre for an audition. They’ve been invited by director Willard Wyler, portrayed with voice and likeness by Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Gotham), who was once the shining star of the horror genre. Unbeknownst to the actors, they will be transformed into characters and transported straight into Wyler’s film to fight against waves of zombies in a space-themed amusement park set in the ‘80s.

Fans play as one of four ‘80s archetypes: the jock, the nerd, the valley girl and the rapper. The characters are voiced by a seasoned cast of comedic actors, including Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Austin Powers), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad), Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live, Ride Along) and Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live, Inside Amy Schumer). Additionally, players will encounter an enigmatic DJ in the theme park, portrayed with voice and likeness by David Hasselhoff (Knight Rider, Baywatch), who will be an invaluable resource as they try to get out of this horror movie alive.

Fans can learn more about Zombies in Spaceland by tuning in tomorrow, 17th August at 4pm BST on Twitch, on YouTube and on Facebook for a special reveal stream hosted by actor Jay Pharoah as he speaks with the game developers in more detail.

Fans who pre-order any edition of the game will receive the totally rad “Zombies in Spaceland Pack” which consists of bonus in-game digital items, including a unique zombies weapon camo, zombies weapon reticle, animated zombies calling card and Fate & Fortune card pack. They’ll also receive the reimagined, fan-favourite Terminal bonus multiplayer map.
