Join The Fight In Spec Ops: The Line
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Digital Tribe's Spec Ops: The Line is available for purchase now at Mac Game Store. The third-person military shooter puts players in command of a team of three characters struggling to complete missions in the desert environment of Dubai. In addition to a single player campaign Spec Ops also offers cross platform multiplayer action.

Spec Ops: The Line is an action-packed Third-Person Shooter that delivers heart pounding physically close combat through a squad-based play mechanic. Players lead a team of three characters, Captain Martin Walker, Lieutenant Adams and Sergeant Lugo. Each character has his own distinct personality and specialized skills, and the mature story they each play a role in explores the dark side of war in a realistic way, in which there are no good outcomes, only hard choices.

As missions are completed more advanced weapons and equipment are made available. In addition, the desert environment of Dubai is brought into the game in a unique way with stunning visuals, and dynamic sandstorms that actively effect level designs, and which can be used to help and hinder progress. The vertical interiors of Dubai high rise buildings also provide tactical advantages and risks that can be used by players. Multiplayer campaigns bring new modes and unusual situations and environments to expand the single player experience.


  • A new portrayal of the military shooter experience with twisting narrative uncertainties.

Warhammer Online Free Until The End
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Mythic has announced a "parting gift" for fans of Warhammer Online: Age or Reckoning, which will close on December 18. Those with accounts in good standing will be able to play the game free of charge until the end. Mythic is also adding some new NPCs and unique experiences for players to enjoy during that time. The game features Realm vs Realm combat and allows players to enter a grim fantasy world where the armies of Order and Destruction collide to determine the fate of nations.

Effective immediately we will be turning off the ability to apply one month subscriptions and game time codes to Warhammer Online accounts and removing the ability to open new Warhammer Online accounts. 

To give Warhammer Online a proper sendoff we are opening the game to anyone free of charge that has or had an account in good standing starting October 31st, 2013.  We will be adding new NPC’s to the game in order to power up your characters as well as other unique experiences for everyone to enjoy as we say goodbye to Warhammer Online over the next few weeks.  So please join us and help say goodbye to Warhammer Online in one last big WAAAGH!

Eschalon: Book III Delayed Until 2014
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Basilisk Games recently offered a status update on the development of Eschalon: Book III, its upcoming third and final entry in the old-school fantasy RPG series. Currently in alpha testing, Book III was scheduled to release before the end of this year, but the developer has made the decision to push beta testing to mid-January 2014. The game itself is now planned for release 4 to 6 weeks after beta testing concludes.

We are just finishing up with round 2 of alpha testing, which was a great success. Unfortunately, the success of Alpha testing was that it showed us there is still a lot to do before we can talk about beta testing and release dates.

Our most recent release window estimate was “Holiday 2013″. In order to avoid being lost in the chaos of Holiday Sales on Steam and other distributors, we would need to have the game out in early December. That’s a little over four weeks from now, which is simply unfeasible. We refuse to release a product until we feel it is finished properly, which means making a slight adjustment to our release window.

The best time to start beta testing will be after the holiday frenzy has worn off, since it’s not likely that we would get substantial feedback from testers during the weeks around Christmas. That puts beta testing in mid-January with a release date of 4-6 weeks after that.

We do apologize to everyone who has waited so long for the third Eschalon game. We thank you for being patient with us, and hope you know that this extra development time will make the game better in almost every way.
