war-roomWar Room – a real-time strategy game where you manage military units in Afghanistan, is in development. Gear up and watch the latest trailer!

Take on the role of an American military commander and coordinate complex operations in Afghanistan. Try to regain control of the situation and stabilize one of the world’s most tumultuous and dangerous provinces. Watch the latest trailer of War Room and prepare for missions, part of which are based on real events.

Send units to villages occupied by enemy forces. Attack terrorist bases and hideouts. Manage your troops and equipment using a strategic map and follow battles thanks to a view from a military drone. Complete story missions, but also ensure the safety of your bases and popularity of your actions in each sector through side objectives. However, be careful not to get distracted. Achieve your military goals with special consideration for the humanitarian side of the conflict.

Watch the latest War Room Announcement Trailer HERE, and get ready for a challenging operation.

War Room is a real-time strategy game in which you manage military units spread across the territory of the Province. Resources at your disposal are limited, and you have to skillfully manage them in order to accomplish each mission. Deploy units to locations where you suspect enemy presence, but think carefully when you decide on their size – assign your forces suitable to the task at hand or you might end up with too few troops ready to fight when you really need them. Take over territory, deploy drones and observe the situation in specific locations in real time. And finally, take control of each of the nine sectors.

Your actions will be evaluated, and good results will be rewarded with additional troops and vehicles, giving you the ability to perform larger and more complex operations.

WAR ROOM MAIN FEATURES:

  • A huge (1000 sq. km) 3D map based on a real map of Afghanistan. Operate within nine sectors, with one command center each. Attack enemy bases and hideouts, push enemies out of civilian settlements, deny them control of any territory.
  • Many hours of exciting gameplay in a single campaign.

Begin in one of the sectors where the main base (MOB) is located. Start as a new commander and take over one of the most challenging combat zones of this War. Search and destroy enemies in the first sector and then continue further, gaining ground until the entire province is under your control.

  • Non-linear events. Your patrols and humanitarian missions will encounter multiple scenarios that will depend on the sector security level and population stance toward your troops. Each action you take will have further consequences. There is no single path to success. Determine which areas you wish to focus on and how to guide your forces to dominance over the enemy.
  • Two play perspectives: satellite (management) and drone (tactical). The game is divided into two layers – tactical and strategic. Use the satellite view to manage your forces and equipment. Deploy drones and observe what is happening in real time.
  • Territory control is the main goal of the game. Conduct military operations from the ground and air, eliminate terrorists, clear IEDs from roads, and support your troops with powerful air assets. Experience missions based on real-life operations and events. Take care of the base’s security and increase the popularity of your actions in the sector through the side missions.
  • Patrolling and ‘Hearts & Minds.’ Ensure safety in the sectors you control and win the trust of the local population. Send your forces on regular patrols to project force, search and destroy enemies, protect the construction of civilian infrastructure, provide protection for local elections, or deliver humanitarian supplies to locals.
  • Wide range of units and military vehicles. Execute your actions with a wide range of resources at your disposal. MRAPs of various types and sizes, specialized mine disposal vehicles, main battle tanks, and a wide selection of air units. All possible choices reflect the available arsenal for the Afghan conflict.
  • Inspired by true events. The provinces and characters in the game are fictional, but most missions and operations in the game are based on real events.

War Room is currently under development. Its release date will be announced shortly. To keep up with all the news and updates from the main base, add the game to your wishlist on Steam.

alphacool-eisbaer-aurora-240-digital-rgb-aio-coolerBy Mike Sanders @ eteknix

Alphacool is one of the biggest and best-known names in system cooling and with good reason. Being well-reputed for their AIO cooling solutions and custom loop systems, they’re one of the most obvious choices if you’re planning to go down that road with your system. They are, without a doubt, one of the biggest market leaders!

With the launch of the brand new Eisbaer Aurora, however, this is certainly one of their most interesting designs I think I’ve ever encountered. That’s interesting in a good way, just in case you couldn’t tell.

nvidia-geforce-nowSource: TechPowerUp!

NVIDIA has finally launched its GeForce Now streaming gaming service, and users can enjoy partial amounts of free gaming under the business model. There are two tiers of users on offer: Free, and Founders. The free tier, which you may give a go to check the streaming infrastructure and if it’s something you would enjoy paying for, is limited to 60-minute play sessions. This means that after the clock has stopped ticking (with potentially intrusive pop-up notifications reminding you of how much time you have left every 10 minutes), you’ll be forced to quit the game, and submit yourself to a playing queue until your next 60-minute window is up. RTX isn’t available in this tier, though – so if you also wanted to see for yourself what the raytracing talk is all about, you’ll have to pay $5 (monthly subscription) to cross that particular river.

Founder-tier members, however, will be able to enjoy the latest RTX-enabled games. The only ones listed on the service, for now, are Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Call of Duty: modern Warfare, Metro Exodus, and Deliver Us the Moon, which NVIDIA has recently started bundling with select RTX graphics cards). There is still a catch though: play sessions will be limited to 6 hours, after which time you’ll be brought back to a gaming queue (though you’ll have precedence over Free tier accounts, should there be many Founders-tier players in the queue, you might have to wait a while). There’s a limited-time 90-day introductory period of which you can take advantage while subscribing for the Founders tier right now, which means you will only be billed after that 90-day grace period is over. Remember – you have to own a digital copy of the game you want to play in any of the more popular storefronts, such as EPIC and Steam, before you can game – but it’s still a nice way to experience RTX should you currently own a non-RTX-enabled graphics card.

System requirements for NVIDIA’s GeForce Now are as stands:

  • 15 Mbps internet connection (25 Mbps recommended). A 5 GHz network is preferred if using wireless.
  • Any Windows PC running Windows 7 (64-bit) or higher, 4 GB of system memory, a 2.0 GHz dual-core X86 CPU or higher and a GPU that supports DirectX 11.
  • Any Mac with macOS 10.10 or higher.
  • Any Nvidia Shield TV (2015, 2017, 2019; Base and Pro models).
  • Any Android phone running Android 5.0 (L) or higher and 2 GB of system memory.
  • A Bluetooth gamepad is strongly recommended, including the Shield controller, Razer Raiju and Junglecat Mobile, or Steelseries Stratus Duo.

command-live-broken-shield-300Time is running fast and tensions between Israel and Syria doesn’t seem to de-escalate. The entire region is in high alert, with rumours of military exercises being conducted on both sides.

Mark the day, as Command LIVE – Broken Shield 300 will be released on February 13th!

Inspired by the most recent geopolitical events, Command: LIVE – Broken Shield 300 scenario depicts how the Heyl Ha’Avir (or IAF, Israeli Air Force) would act in case of a military escalation in Syria and its final activation of S-300 missiles batteries to protect Iranian assets.

FEATURES

  • Playable as Israel (main side) and Syria (limited experience)
  • Carefully researched scenario featuring authentic representation of the Israeli Air Force down to the individual tail numbers in the respective squadrons
  • Feasible Russian made IADS network composed of both modern [S-300 PMU-2 (SA-20B), Buk (SA-17), Pantsir (SA-22)] and legacy [S-75 (SA-2), S-125 (SA-3), S-200 (SA-5), Kvadrat (SA-6), Osa (SA-8)] air defense systems
  • Realistic “what if” scenario aimed at exploring the ways to crack up to date IADS networks using all the tools available to a modern day western commander like long range stand-off weapons, OECM platforms, space based assets and even cyber attacks
  • Challenging scoring system based on the necessity of maintaining very low to non casualties and extracting downed pilots from enemy territory via SAR operations before they are captured by the enemy for propaganda purposes – rich backstory along with a developing one through the scenario

command-live-broken-shield-300We are receiving news from Israel about an increase in military exercises, close to the borders with Syria.

Tensions are rising between these two countries after the latest attack conducted by the IAF has destroyed an Iranian cargo containing advanced guidance systems – probably to be delivered to Hezbollah – in Syrian controlled territory.

Damascus’ regime has been proving to have increased its air interdiction capacities, even threating the IAF in its own airspace, so it is very likely that Israel would try to prevent this to finally happening in some way.

The current situation is very volatile and it could escalate at any moment.
