The Battlefield 4 Battlelog has word that the promised Community Operations update is now available for Battlefield 4 along with the fall update for the first-person shooter sequel. This post offers the fall update patch notes, which are far more extensive than most game manuals these days. Here’s word:

It’s time to harvest the fruits of your labor. The Community Map Project led to the creation of the Operation Outbreak map, and it’s rolling out worldwide today with Battlefield 4 Community Operations. Grab the free* DLC from the Origin My Games tab or the PlayStation PS Store or Xbox Marketplace.

The Battlefield 4 Fall Update is available today as well. Check out the Fall Update notes here!

Operation Outbreak has you fighting in the jungle over a Medical Clinic, Temple, Ghost Town, Logging Camp, and Palm Oil Plantation – all of which were created based on feedback and suggestions from the Battlefield 4 community. You helped build the map, and now it’s time for you to blast it apart.

Check out the Battlefield 4 Community Operations gameplay trailer here.


The fourth – and penultimate – entry in the Just Cause 3 Dev Diary series takes a look at the story and missions driving Just Cause 3’ s explosive action.

In Just Cause 3, Rico Rodriguez returns to his homeland – the Mediterranean island of Medici. Far from the paradise it might appear on the surface, Medici is ruled by the dictator General Di Ravello, who uses the island’s resources to further his plans of world domination. Thankfully, Rico is no stranger to removing tyrannous dictators from power, and takes charge of the rebellion.

“Our missions are an excuse for you to try cool things,” explains Francesco Antolini, Principal Designer at Avalanche Studios. “…we’ve kept the same philosophy from the rest of the game which leaves the player free to experiment and reach their goals however they prefer.”

As well as highlighting the story and events leading up to the start of the game, the video takes a look at characters and the technologies behind them. In the video, there’s a fantastic insight into performance capture and the camera tech Avalanche Studios has used in bringing Just Cause 3’s cast to life.

order-of-battle-pacific-boxEveryone knows the importance of the Pacific Theatre during World War II. Some of the bloodiest battles of the whole conflict were fought on the wide oceans and in the deep jungles. After three years and thousands of dead on all sides the Japanese Empire was destroyed and a new balance of power was established.

But this conflict started earlier than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. China saw its own borders constantly menaced and, after many “incidents”, on July 7th of 1937 Japan began a large invasion of the Chinese soil. A nominally united China was still fighting its own internal wars and was initially ill-prepared for the onslaught leading to the Japanese forces conquering an impressive amount of land but at the cost of overstretching its lines..

The Second Sino – Japanese War has begun!

Order of Battle: Pacific after the release of the successful free update Battle of Britain, comes back to the Pacific Theatre, covering one of the cruelest but most underrated conflicts of the Second World War period..

From the Product Page…

“Players take control over the Japanese forces fighting for territorial expansion and rich Chinese resources. The conflict soon turns into a massive all-out war between the two sides during the Battle of Shanghai. While the Chinese forces are numerically superior, they have suffered from internal conflict and are poorly equipped with outdated weapons. The recently modernized Japanese Army on the other hand is well trained and experienced, but as the war drags on it gets increasingly overstretched, allowing the enemy to regain the initiative at several occasions…”

The game is ready for Beta phase and we ask players to join it to help us in giving the final touches!

You can apply for the Beta from here.

pike-and-shot-campaigns-boxPike and Shot: Campaigns, the tactical wargame depicting over two centuries of struggles in Europe from The Renaissance Wars to the Sun King, receives a new patch, bringing the game to version 1.1.2!

This update improves the game in many ways, included corrections for the campaign mode and more balanced units statistics!

You can download the patch from here!

Take a look on the changelog below:

  • Added details to unit type description in Force Selection screen for Raise New Army in campaigns.
  • Added current status of individual units present to tooltips in Force display screen at start of campaign battle.
  • Added number of men and armour description to unit type description in Force Selection screen for skirmishes.
  • Allowed any non-light foot without missile weapons to charge cavalry.
  • Added Map Border plugin to Editor. This allows you to set all tiles outside the playable map area to black.
  • Mousing over enemy armies prior to hitting the Start Battle button when a battle is pending now shows the number of infantry and cavalry including any garrison/militia units that have been added. (Previously showed the uplifted point estimate, but only showed the total number of men in field army units present).
  • Stopped highly understrength campaign units from getting excessive damage mitigation for small unit size.
  • Increased musket % on Scot Highlander musketeers to 66%. (This to compensate for unintended double whammy of having their short range shooting reduced because of impact foot status).
  • Corrected various minor bugs.

flashpoint-campaigns-germany-reforgedA hypothetical confrontation between the Soviet Union and the West would have seen Europe as the major battlefield. Highly mobile formations supported by new arrays of technological equipment would have revolutionized the entire concept of modern war.

Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm – one of the best wargames simulating a Cold War conflict ever made – succeeded in recreating this conflict. Now with the Germany Reforged battle pack we are revisiting the battles of the original Flashpoint Germany release while also adding in a new mega-battle to bring you Cold War land combat at its finest!

To show the high level of realism recreated, we want to share to you a stunning and completely new map, four times larger the normal maps of Red Storm!

Take a look at this incredible picture depicting the critical area around the German city of Eiterfeld!

Historically The US 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (“Blackhorse”) was tasked to guard this terrain in the 1980′s. The Fulda and Haune rivers were the two natural obstacles to base their defence on.

Just across the border were the 3rd Border Regiment and the Soviet 8th Guards Army.

Stay tuned for further updates! Get more information about Flashpoint Campaigns: Germany Reforged from its official product page.

G. Skill may be better known for their memory and storage products, but they are expanding their portfolio. Today we look at their new keyboard – the Ripjaws KM780 RGB. This keyboard incorporates Cherry MX mechanical switches and clear housings to deliver uniform RGB backlighting. It also packs a metal piped frame, detachable wrist rest, media keys, macro switches and a number of other fancy functions, all into a brushed aluminium frame. This is no budget product, as RGB mechanical keyboards tend to be – but can it justify the price tag?
