This trailer shows off the M109A6 Paladin self-propelled gun that Obsidian is bringing to Armored Warfare, their multiplayer tank game. The clip includes real-life video along with gameplay footage to show why you might want the Paladin on your side. Here’s word:

“The Paladin is part of the M109 self-propelled gun series originally used by the American military during the Vietnam War and has proven so useful that its modernized form remains in service to this day. In Armored Warfare the Paladin has faster movement and higher rates of fire than most artillery vehicles, but its fire power is less than that of other artillery vehicles in its same tier. Vulnerable to counter-artillery fire if it stays in one place too long, using the Paladin’s extra mobility to change position is often the key to success.”

Latest Expansion for Crusader Kings II Will Pillage Your Hours

It is rather unlike hordes of nomadic invaders to stick to schedule, but the Horse Lords have told us that we can expect a rainfall of arrows on July 14. Horse Lords is the latest expansion for Paradox Development Studios’s much-loved grand strategy RPG Crusader Kings II and it will bring the hellfire of war on the steppes to glorious map-painting life on your desktop.

With a heavy focus on the Mongol and Turkic invaders of the Central Asian plains, Horse Lords adds an expanded map, new ruling systems for the fascinating culture of the nomadic tribes that changed the course of world history from the saddle. There are also some minor tweaks that will affect everyone, including the construction of temporary forts to hold an area in your control and introducing the Silk Road – the wealthy trade highway that ran from the Mediterranean to East Asia.

To celebrate the July 14 announcement, we’ve decided to release a few screenshots that show off some of the coming changes in the Horse Lords expansion. You’ll see some images of the new map, new cultures and new interface.

NVIDIA released its latest “Game Ready” driver that’s become customary for the company ahead of a big AAA game launch; GeForce 353.30. These WHQL-signed drivers come “ready” for Batman: Arkham Knight, including SLI profiles, and GeForce Experience settings. The driver also adds an SLI profile for Lord of Vermilion Arena in its DirectX 9 mode. Batman Arkham Knight features NVIDIA’s GameWorks varnish, and should feature a few effects and settings exclusive to NVIDIA.

NVIDIA’s GeForce Game Ready 353.30 WHQL drivers can be downloaded from or through GeForce Experience.
