Battlefield 4 – Naval Strike DLC Screenshots & Game Details

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike takes the dramatic water-based combat introduced in Battlefield 4 to four all-new maps set in the South China Sea. Take control over new weapons and gadgets, pilot the new hovercraft vehicle, and experience the Carrier Assault game mode in this intense expansion pack. Read on for details and the first official screenshots.

Take the Fight to the Sea

Water-based combat has always been a vital part of the all-out war of Battlefield 4, and with Battlefield 4 Naval Strike the fights at sea are more intense than ever. With the introduction of the amphibious hovercraft vehicle, your possibilities to dominate the sea will be even greater.

Four All-New Multiplayer Maps

Blow open a crashed passenger plane and capture fishing villages across the tropical Lost Islands. Drop a submarine on your foes as you infiltrate a naval base or rush between shipping docks and rocky islands on the massive Wave Breaker map. Wage war across stormy seas in the largest ocean stretch in a Battlefield map yet with Nansha Strike. Storm an abandoned cliff-side resort, or get lost in the breathtaking vistas in Operation Mortar.

A Classic Game Mode Re-Imagined

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike lets you re-live the classic Titan Mode of Battlefield 2142, with the introduction of the Carrier Assault game mode. Stay tuned to the Battlefield Blog for more details on this re-imagining of a classic.

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike will be released late March for Battlefield 4 Premium members. To get a two-week head start with Battlefield 4 Naval Strike and other upcoming Battlefield 4 expansion packs, secure a Battlefield 4 Premium membership.

forma.8 – Screenshots, Trailer, & Press Release

Direct Link

Italian indie studio MixedBag is proud to reveal that his long in the work action adventure forma.8 is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, iOS, PC, Mac and Linux by the end of the year.

forma.8 is MixedBag’s own take on the classic metroidvania formula, a project started over two years ago as a little gameplay concept centered on an experimental control system for touch devices that evolved in an adventure of epic scale.
 It’s the kind of game that, as a two-person indie developer, anyone tells you ‘hey, don’t start with something big like this!’… err…

In a distant future, the small exploration probe forma.8 is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. He got parted away from his companions by an accidental event and has a life or death mission to accomplish: he needs to find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before it’s too late. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions awaits him, and not everything is as it seems…

Floating gracefully in mid air, with a control system that aims to give the player a true sense of flying, our little hero forma.8 starts with no powers, no weapons and no hints of what to do and where to go: it’s up to the player to explore the planet, deal with its often hostile inhabitants, and slowly uncover the story.
 There’s no verbal communication in the game, everything is conveyed to the player only with images and sounds.

A unique mix of hand drawn vector graphics and 3d elements brings the world of forma.8 to life with a clean and vibrant look, while the fully physics based interaction with the environment and the planet weird fauna offers unexpected twists to the gameplay.

Features

• An expansive world to explore
• An intriguing and mysterious story
• Action!
• Puzzles!
• Dystopian visions!
• Combat!
• Secrets to uncover
• Lots of enemies
• Lots of BIG enemies
• Some more B I G G E R enemies
• …and all the power-ups you need to take care of them and to avoid all the nasty stuff you’ll face on the remote, alien planet
• 60 frames per second super fluid action

forma.8 will be playable at the EGX Rezzed in Birmingham, march 28-30, as part of the Leftfield Collection. A Steam Greenlight for forma.8 is now online

Mauro Fanelli, confounder of MixedBag: “I’m so excited to finally reveal forma.8 for consoles, mobile, tablets and computers. I think it’s amazing that the first game announced for a next-generation console from an italian team is an indie project made by an indie team. It wouldn’t have been possible just a few years ago. A massive thanks to Sony and Nintendo for the support, and to Unity for making it possible”.

Pavilion – Logo, Trailer, & Game Details

Visiontrick Media has revealed some new details about their upcoming “fourth-person puzzler” Pavilion. The gameplay will be based around exploration and aural & visual imagery. According to Visiontrick, the term fourth-person refers to the fact that you are not directly controlling the character. Your actions will make him do different things to do explore the world. This could take the form of interacting with the game’s environment for example. Visiontrick plans to share more details later on down the line, but they said they don’t reveal everything about Pavilion since exploration is a big part of it.
