syrian-warfare-logoDeveloper Cats Who Play have revealed  a new single-player RTS project, Syrian Warfare. You can vote for Syrian Warfare on the games Steam Greenlight page. Steam Greenlight is a system that enlists the community’s help in picking some of the new games to be released on Steam. Syrian Warfare is projected to be released Autumn 2016. Here’s some game info:

Our planet has seen to many wars, and that’s a sensitive subject for all of us. That’s the way the world wags, and every day we see consequences of numerous conflicts taking place in faraway lands. We see them in the news, we see them in the refugees at our borders.

This war has been going on for a long time, and it’s hard to say when it will be over. We got so used to it that news from Syria has become trivial. We’ve even already forgotten how it all started, and where the roots of the terrible terror lie – the terror that swept across Europe in recent years.

Syria is all over the news, and it’s become a subject of many documentaries. We, however, want to show the story through the lens of the game, and don’t let the word “game” mislead you. This game does not claim to be a history lesson, but it shows the course of the war in all its seriousness through the major milestones, from the first days till the latest important victories over terror.

Syrian Warfare is:

  • Real Time Strategy game with a high degree of realism.
  • Detailed simulation of modern weapon systems.
  • Close to reality tactical actions of different types of troops.
  • Game based on a true story.
  • Realistic graphics.

It’s is not a cheap actioner, but rather a game claiming to look and feel like a non-fiction doc. Following the game progress will bring you to better and clearer understanding of the hornet’s nest that has been stirred up in the Middle East. Understanding of how it all started and how all sides of the conflict tend to act now. We do understand the seriousness of the subject and we are not afraid to take on it.

Watch the official announcement trailer and view some screenshots on the official Syrian Warfare webpage.


fallout4-logoSteam News has announced that the new DLC Fallout 4 Far Harbor is now available. To celebrate the release, Bethesda is offering Fallout 4 at 33% off until May 23rd at 10AM Pacific Time.

Here’s a bit about the new DLC:

A new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we’ve ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.

For more information about Fallout 4 Far Harbor, visit the official Fallout 4 website.

Fallout 4′s Far Harbor expansion adds a large new zone set in post-apocalyptic Maine. You’re on a mission from Valentine’s Detective Agency to find a missing person, but Far Harbor’s old fishing villages have become flashpoints in a faction war, and the swamps have become breeding grounds for some ugly new creatures.

It looks a lot like a more detailed take on Fallout 3′s Maryland-set Point Lookout DLC, though that didn’t feature a giant harpoon cannon or a suit of military armour that makes you look like a mud-spattered Master Chief.

Get an exclusive look into the making of Fallout 4’s Far Harbor from Bethesda Game Studios here.

Far Harbor is out tomorrow, Thursday May 19.

The Division team has released the first details on the free Conflict update – the second of two free updates for The Division – which arrives May 24 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. One of its biggest additions is Clear Sky, a brand new Incursion in Columbus Circle. Pitting Division Agents against Rikers, Clear Sky challenges you to take back a formerly LMB-controlled anti-air missile site, restore safe passage to the skies over Manhattan, and reclaim supply drops stolen by Rikers.

Another new feature coming in the Conflict update is high-value targets (HVT). The HVT officer inside your base of operations will provide you with a list of these targets, along with a description, their level, and the recommended gear score you need to engage them. You’ll have a limited amount of time and only one chance to take down these targets.

The Dark Zone will see some changes that are going to make extractions even more intense than they were before. Specifically, Agents will now have the option to hijack your loot. This means that a player can run to an extraction rope and cut it, causing all of the loot to fall to the ground.

AMD today released its third Radeon Software Crimson Edition update for this month. Version provides a massive 35 percent performance increase for Radeon R9 390 series graphics cards (R9 390, R9 390X) on “Doom” (2016), compared to version 16.5.2, released earlier this month. The change-log does not mention whether this is also applicable to the nearly identical Radeon R9 290 series (R9 290, R9 290X, and R9 295X2). Not much else has changed, which explains the version numbering.
