InXile Entertainment recently announced a new update for the beta version of the company's upcoming post-apocalyptic Wasteland 2 RPG, as well as the ability for Wasteland 2 backers to get in on the beta for a $10 fee. The latest update introduces a variety of changes and adjustments to the in-development title as well as the introduction of a Mac OS X version for the first time.

This is just a short update to notify all of you that some of the things we've been talking about of late are now live: the beta update, the $10 add-on and some new videos. First and foremost, the large beta update has just gone live on Steam. Additionally, the OSX version of the beta is now also live for our Mac backers!

We have launched our limited-time add-on option for existing Wasteland 2 backers. This $10 add-on will be available for purchase for a limited time, and will give access to Wasteland 2's beta. It does not include the other extras from the Steam digital deluxe edition. To purchase this add-on, log into your Ranger Center account, you will find it under the backer store tab.

Torment backers: If your tier included Wasteland 2 and you didn't already get the beta as an add-on, you are eligible for this $10 add-on as well. Log in to your Torment pledge management account and the add-on will appear in the Torment store listing. This applies only to tiers that include Wasteland 2.

6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

TransGaming has announced three new DLC packs for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified are now available for purchase. The DLCs bring all-new content to Mac gamers, and expand upon special agent William Carter and his team's original mission - to survive, adapt and overcome the enemy threat.

The DLC content includes the following:

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Hangar 6 R&D
In the days leading up to the events of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Agent Nico DaSilva volunteers for a series of secret psycho-medical experiments to identify and treat a terrifying new pathogen. Maximize your combat skills and push your team to its limits to protect them from terrifying hallucinations as the experiments turn dangerous.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - CodeBreakers
A top secret government communications facility responsible for intercepting and decoding enemy transmissions has gone radio-silent. In a desperate attempt to turn the tides of the secret war, Special Agent Carter and his squad must investigate the incident, eliminate any threats, and make contact with personnel in order to bring the facility back online and crack the mysterious code.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Light Plasma Pistol
Early research into the Outsiders' weapon technology has yielded promising results in the form of a prototype light plasma pistol. Not as bulky as its predecessor, this compact weapon fires condensed bolts of plasma and boasts a vastly improved rate-of-fire, giving players an early edge in the secret war for humanity's survival.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified's DLC content Hangar 6 R&D, CodeBreakers and the Light Plasma Pistol are available now for purchase. Follow the links below for more information.

Take The Battle To The Skies In Airships
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

David Stark recently emailed IMG about Airships, an upcoming real-time strategy game soon to be made available for early access. The game lets players design diesel-punk airships and engage in combat with them. Currently Airships supports single and multiplayer ship design and combat, with additional features like ship-to-ship boarding actions, wheeled vehicles, and even dragons.

About Airships
Airships is a real-time strategy game where you design airships and then fight with them. The aim is to have pretty chaotic explodey fights and interesting ship design choices. Iíve been working on it since October 2013.

About Me
I'm David Stark, an indie developer based in Switzerland. I've been developing games since I tried getting my dad's FileMaker database to make space RPGs back in the Dark Ages. I live in Zurich, where local game development is just starting to be a thing. I've previously made smaller games like Dawn, ArtCritic, Patent Blaster and Parasite Escape.

The early access version of Airships is scheduled to launch in early March for Mac, Windows, and Linux and will cost $5.

Key Features:
