“Hello and welcome back to the Aperture Science computer-aided enrichment center.”

We welcome all lucky applicants to Bridge Constructor Portal with our new vehicle-based test chambers, Quantum Tunnels and patented Aperture technology!

For the last year we’ve been secretly working in our underground labs on the next iteration of the million-selling Bridge Constructor series. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

Bridge Constructor Portal will blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS.

 

Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20 2017 for Windows, MacOS and Linux as well as for mobile devices. The console versions will follow in early 2018.

“If you’ve been paying attention the solution should be obvious. As the case may be… good luck!”

This was certainly unexpected. A crossover between Bridge Constructor and Portal was not one of the games we would have seen coming. Still, there is a lot of potential here.

Steel Wool Studios is pleased to announce that The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth is coming soon to Steam Early Access (PC and Virtual Reality) – the first VR game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe! Fans around the world can be immersed in the setting as if they were really there and master the ultimate living battlefield in a “human-scale” interactive experience.

The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth is a tactical-turn-based strategy game based on Games Workshop’s fan-favorite Betrayal at Calth board game set during the era of Horus Heresy. Gameplay includes a single player campaign and multiplayer PvP skirmish mode, both can be experienced either on PC or in Virtual Reality.
Original Horus Heresy Narrative: Set in the 31st Millennium on the planet of Calth, Magos Ohmnal Sarc commands a unit of Ultramarines. When he discovers corrupted data in the noosphere, Sarc is confronted with a faction of aggressive Word Bearers and a devastating plot of corruption within the Imperium. Developed by Black Library author, Rob Sanders, out-wit a plot that introduces untold threats and schemes against the Emperor.
Single-Player Campaign: 24 combat scenarios exploring the conflict between two factions of Space Marines. The story progresses linearly and each level presents unique challenges intertwined with the drama of the narrative.
A Living Battlefield: While players decide on their next action or wait on their opponent, the world around them continues to animate and fight.
Multiplayer Skirmish Mode: Players can choose between the Ultramarine and Word Bearer factions. Units include Legionnaires, Terminators, Dreadnoughts and a cast of characters armed with everything from Bolters to multi-meltas to assault cannons. More character classes will be added up until the final game release.
VR Mode: The “human-scale” view of Space Marine combat gives the player the feeling of being on the battlefield during 40k action. A world first VR game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Cross-Platform Multiplayer Matchmaking: Play on either gaming PC, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. As a turn-based game, PC versus VR provides no gameplay advantages, only differing user experiences of the world.

As avid Warhammer 40,000 tabletop gamers, Steel Wool Studios set out to bring the lore of the Horus Heresy to life in an increasingly engaging narrative. Early Access mode starts with the initial chapter of a five-part campaign. Single-player mode (VR and PC) will include a five-map narrative, while PvP Multiplayer has four maps and two play modes (Deathmatch and Objective Match). Each proceeding update will include a new chapter filled with new maps, weapons, abilities and units.

Joshua Qualtieri, Co-Founder and Head of Development: “Our team has always wanted to play a Warhammer 40k Horus Heresy game where you actually felt like you were in the midst of the battle… where your mastery had true consequence. We can’t wait for fans like us to play this game and let us know how they feel and what we can improve on. That’s the great spirit of Early Access.”

The Horus Heresy is one of the most important points in Warhammer 40K lore. A new game set in that period is extremely welcome, especially one that sounds as amazing as this. The unique take on VR sounds interesting and the cross platform play is a great inclusion. This is shaping up to be an excellent addition to the Warhammer 40K video game library.

Fallout: New Vegas is considered perhaps the best of the Fallout game series. The rpg from Obsidian merged the gameplay of the first two entries with that of the 3D first person perspective gameplay of Fallout 3, to much acclaim. Fans have wanted a sequel for years, but nothing was announced from IP holder Bethesda Softworks or Obsidian themselves. Naturally many were upset, due to some having dissatisfaction with Fallout 3 and 4 and some fans simply enjoying New Vegas more due to its difference from Bethesda’s entries. However there is news now that may give fans some joy, but it is still a ways off.

Some fans have taken it upon themselves to create a new Fallout New Vegas experience within Fallout 4. This is similar to The Elder Scrolls Renewal Project that aims to bring Morrowind and Oblivion to Skyrim’s engine as Skywind and Skyblivion. The project is currently titled Fallout 4: New Vegas and a trailer was released.

 

The project will take some time, which should not be a surprise as Skywind and Skyblivion have been years in the works. Still, this is great news for fans of Fallout New Vegas until we get a true, proper sequel.

Independent developer Fourattic and Devolver Digital have announced their vibrant adventure Crossing Souls will arrive on PlayStation 4 and PC Feb. 13, 2018. The new ‘Ready for Adventure’ gameplay trailer celebrates this announcement with a fresh look at gameplay and a nostalgic trip through the game’s influences including Stand By Me, E.T., and Ghostbusters

 

 

Crossing Souls takes us all back to the good old days of 1986 in California and tells the incredible story of a group of friends who will have the summer of their lives after uncovering a mysterious artifact with powers they don’t fully understand, but will change their fate forever. These remarkable kids will defy the laws of nature to interact between two planes of reality: life and death. When their curiosity triggers a series of unexpected events, their adventure will lead them away from home and everything they know into dark, secret governmental conspiracies – including secrets involving a mysterious U.S. Army general with his own nefarious plans.

 

The game will be playable this month at PlayStation Experience 2017 with the development team on hand to walk attendees through a new demo and chat about the inspirations that went into their debut project. To learn more about Crossing Souls and to stay informed on the latest news, please visit www.crossingsoulsthegame.com and follow @Fourattic on Twitter.
