I have watched last night’s Microsoft Flight Simulator gameplay trailer numerous times today and gosh, what a majestic thing this game looks to be.

So, yes, I could give you the press release spiel: Microsoft has now confirmed a bunch of aeroplane companies it will officially license planes from: Airbus, Boeing, CubCrafters, Daher, Diamond Aircraft Industries, ICON Aircraft, Robin Aircraft and Textron Aviation.

Or you could just watch the trailer a couple more times and marvel at its astonishing recreation of the planet below.

Crank this up to full screen and 4K.

msi-vigor-gk50-low-profile-gaming-keyboardBy Peter Donnell @ eTeknix

I’ve reviewed a lot of keyboards over the years, a few of them membrane, but most of them were mechanical. We don’t see many slim models come through the office, and even less so, mechanical and slim together. A lot of our readers are enthusiast gamers, and they tend to favour mechanical keyboards, which are rarely available in a slim format. Now MSI thinks they’ve found the solution, with the slim and mechanical MSI Vigor GK50 Low-Profile gaming keyboard. Using a new custom switch type, it promises MX Blue style clicky switches in a keyboard that stands just 34mm at the thickest part, giving it a pretty slick design.

Update 0.8.10 rounds out final part of the new Italian cruiser branch with new in-depth historical collection and unlockable Italian commander, as well as visually updating ten maps and two ports, while also paving the way for the kick-off of a new Ranked Battle Season

Wargaming has today released Update 0.8.10 for World of Warships, completing the full branch of the Italian cruisers with the introduction of a new themed collection and the unlockable historical Italian commander Luigi Sansonetti. The update also brings a host of visual enhancements to ten maps and two ports, and prepares the game for the arrival of a new Ranked Battle Season.

A new video for update 0.8.10 can be viewed here.

The second installment of the Italian cruisers event kicks off by allowing everyone to research the new warships, all ten of them, while also introducing the “Resolute and Rapid” themed collection, dedicated to highlighting the history of the Italian Navy.

Finishing the whole of this collection grants the unique Italian navy historical commander Luigi Sansonetti who possesses special and powerful in-game effects. His talents activate by achieving specific battle goals such as destroying an enemy ship which will extend the maximum fire range of the main battery guns.

This commander also boasts two enhanced skills: Expert Loader and Torpedo Acceleration. Much like other unique historical Commanders, Luigi Sansonetti comes with specialized personalisation options: a broad pennant, colored shell tracers, and a signal flare that’s fired over the ship when one of his talents is activated.

A new Ranked Battles Season is set to commence in the middle of Update 0.8.10 featuring matches with Tier X ships in an 8v8 format. Only one aircraft carrier per team can be brought, with the total reward for reaching the 1st Rank being 5,500 steel.

Wargaming continues to update the maps and ports in World of Warships so that they make full use of the latest advances of the new lightning model and enhanced HDR technology. Ten maps and two ports, including Solomon Islands, Ring, Two Brothers, Shards, have been updated, as well as the Ocean and Saint Petersburg ports.

Further details on the Update 0.8.10 can be found here.

command-modern-operationsToday marks the release of Command: Modern Operations. C: MO  is an evolution of C: MANO, but it’s also a revolution on its own as it takes every single element and system of the original simulation to the next level. Everything from engine, database, maps, editing, accessibility, progression has been revamped and reshaped.

Watch the Command: Modern Operations release trailer HERE.

C: MO is a giant leap forward in the genre as it effectively takes what was a single self-contained experience and develops it into an open service with multiple opportunities for plug-ins, mods, scenario-editing and more. The integration with other software developed by external companies is a key pillar for the future development of this game as it effectively becomes a gigantic open simulation of global conflicts.

A totally new engine; more than half a TeraByte of high resolution maps covering every corner of our planet; a cyclopean database with more than 30.000 entries for every weapon, missile, ship, satellite, ground installation, submarine, plane, vehicle and ship that has taken the field from 1946 to present day in almost every Nation.

Command: Modern Operations is the premier military simulator for any possible engagement in a modern scenario, from counter-terrorism operations to nuclear tactical warfare.

Easier, deeper, greater and faster. A wide range of tools to manage the battlefield with a modern, crispier and improved graphics user-interface to give players full control of their forces and sensors. Knowledge is the key to win today’s battles.

Existing owners of Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations will receive a 50% discount to help them transition to Modern Operations. Also, all the previously owned official DLCs (a total of 15 products) will be available for free to all Modern Operations owners. Do you have any questions about what happens with the transition from CMANO to CMO? Read the full FAQ HERE.

Grab Command: Modern Operations now from the Matrix Games store or via Steam.

If you are eager to see the game in action, follow our double stream we are going to have on our official Twitch Channel.

The show starts on 6 pm GMT / 1 pm EST / 10 AM PST and continues on 12 PM GMT / 7 PM EST / 4 PM PST.

NVIDIA today posted GeForce 441.20 WHQL software. The drivers come game-ready for “Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order,” and “Stormland.” This includes SLI support for the latest Star Wars game. NVIDIA also introduced support for CUDA 10.2 compute API. The list of G-Sync compatible monitors has been expanded with three more displays. Among the issues addressed with this release are geometry corruption on GTX 900-series “Maxwell” GPUs with “Red Dead Redemption” in Vulkan; G-Sync getting disengaged when V-Sync is disabled in “Red Dead Redemption.” Vulkan-related errors with “The Surge” have also been fixed. There’s also a surprising bug-fix, “Quake 3 Arena” appearing washed-out when color-depth is set to 16-bit. Performance drops with “CS: GO” have also been addressed.

You can download the GeForce Software 441.20 WHQL drivers via GeForce.com.
