Mont Saint-Michel for free in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood update


Ubisoft announced that the Animus Project Update 1.0 downloadable content (DLC) for Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood will be available for download on December 14th, 2010 on XBOX LIVE® and PlayStation®Network. The DLC will be made available for free.

The Animus Project Update 1.0 will include a brand-new game mode and brand new map for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer. The game mode, Advanced Alliance, will make the original Alliance Mode with target identification and engagement more difficult than in original Alliance Mode, thus providing a more challenging experience for players. With three teams of two players each, Advanced Alliance is a tougher test for players and rewards teams that use stealth techniques to hunt their targets.

Located on a rocky tidal island of Normandy in France, the new map, Mont Saint-Michel, offers breathtaking scenery sure to enchant all. Its particular topography of narrow streets, high-perched bell tower and multi-leveled architecture is perfect for hunters and predators alike to surge from out of nowhere to execute their prey. To survive, recruits will need to use free-running and narrow roads to their advantage.

We are very thrilled to be able to offer the first Multiplayer DLC for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood for absolutely free,” said Sebastien Puel, executive producer, Ubisoft Montreal. “We wanted to say thank you to our fans for making Brotherhood such a huge success its opening week. We are very proud of the unique and innovative Multiplayer mode it offers, and hope the fans enjoy the new content.”

Jikandia: The Timeless Land (PSP)

Time to Set Your Own Time Limit in This Timely Game!

Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, proudly announced today that the retro-style action RPG Jikandia: The Timeless Land will be released in North America in Spring 2011. Jikandia: The Timeless Land will be available for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.

For thousands of years, the people of Jikandia were happy and peaceful, utterly ignorant of the concept of time. Then...one day, uncountable hordes of dangerous creatures appeared, bringing chaos to Jikandia and setting the wheels of time turning once again. Plunged suddenly into this newly-temporal reality, the people of Jikandia fell into confusion, terror, and anarchy.

In the midst of the mayhem gripping the land, an ancient spirit known as Temtem, hoping to restore peace and harmony to the troubled land, somehow gained mastery over time and space. With this new-found power, Temtem attempted to summon the nine heroes of legend. Nine kids on their way to school found themselves summoned through time and space to become the champions of Jikandia. However, only Al, who was separated from his friends while traveling through the void, appeared before Temtem. Neither of them knew what had happened to Al’s friends, but it soon become clear that Al had to find them, and right Jikandia’s wrongs, if he was ever to return home.

In Jikandia, you must travel through dungeons in search of your friends. You can set the time limit for each dungeon yourself! Dungeons are altered in several ways according to the time limit you set, so no adventure is the same twice! The longer you spend in one, the more likely you’ll come across rare items and treasure chests...but you’ll also face more monsters and difficult traps. Also, by meeting certain requirements, you can unlock specific events and cause legendary items to appear. Activating the “Awakening” mode will make you stronger, faster, and more powerful! Obtain magic orbs to customize your hero’s skills as you wish. Up to four PSP systems can be linked to play in the Jikandia Coliseum timed stages where you can battle against your friends and dodge traps to win with the highest score!
With a combination of old-school platforming action and a colorful cast of characters, Jikandia: The Timeless Land gives you the freedom to decide how long you want to spend in each dungeon, making the game easy to pick up and play whenever you have a moment to spare,” says Frank “Bo” deWindt II, Associate Producer at Aksys Games.

Jikandia: The Timeless Land Key Features
• Set your own time limit
Set a time limit before entering a dungeon. The setting, enemies, and number of treasure chests change according to the time limit, giving the player endless ways to play the game.
• Unlock story events
Play through the game multiple times to unlock additional events. Since the layout and size of each dungeon changes depending on the time set by the player, it’s possible for the player to never have to explore the same dungeon twice.

• 4-player Coliseum mode
Up to four players can enjoy Jikandia together using the PSP®’s ad-hoc mode. Challenge other players in a wide variety of settings, creating traps and timed events to determine who will emerge from battle victorious.

Blood Angels upgrade

The Blood Angels are one of the most popular Space Marine Chapters. They fought at the Emperor's side during the earliest days of the Imperium as one of the original Legions. Ten thousand years later, and one of the longest-running Chapters, they are still shaped by the deeds of their Primarch Sanguinius. Few Space Marine Chapters are as prolific and loyal in their defence of the Imperium as the Blood Angels, though a flaw in their gene seed makes them susceptible to the Black Rage and the Red Thirst - all-consuming curses that turn them savage and blood-thirsty in battle...

In February 2011, the Blood Angels will receive more reinforcements, including never-before-seen models - visit the website for more information from the Studio in their Incoming! article. If you want to start massing your own Angelic Host, or are looking to bolster your troops, then here are some essential items to prepare for the new arrivals in February.

Codex: Blood Angels

Codex: Blood Angels contains all the rules you need to field a Blood Angels army, and provides excellent information on the Chapter's iconic and in-depth background, artwork, as well as featuring an 'Eavy Metal showcase.

Death Company

Members of the Death Company are unparalleled short-ranged combatants, and are impervious to wounds that may kill another Space Marine. This box set includes backpacks and jump packs featuring Blood Angels iconography, giving you plenty of extras to use on your other Blood Angels miniatures.

Sanguinary Guard

The Sanguinary Guard are Fearless Veteran Blood Angels, elites who uphold the values of their Primarch like no other. Armed with the Descent of Angels special rule, they can drop right into the heart of the enemy force. Complete with winged jump packs, death masks and a variety of power weapons, they make a stunning centerpiece for any Blood Angels force.

Baal Predator

The Baal Predator is a specialized variant of the Predator battle tank, with a potent combination of close-support weaponry, including the options of turret-mounted twin-linked assault cannon and turret-mounted flamestorm cannon. Being a Fast Vehicle and able to Scout makes this tank a formidable opponent. Two of them are a serious threat. Three will create a nightmare.

The Blood Angels Omnibus

This omnibus of the novels Deus Encarmine and Deus Sanguinius tells epic stories of heroism, corruption and betrayal at the very heart of the Chapter, and provides excellent inspiration for developing your army.

Space Marines MkIV Ironclad Dreadnoughts

The latest addition to our range of MkIV Dreadnoughts is the siege specialist MkIV Ironclad Dreadnought, MkIV Hurricane Bolter, MkIV Seismic Hammer and MkIV Chainfist. These full-resin kits, designed by Phil Stutcinskas, afford Space Marine players the complete range of Codex options for the Ironclad Dreadnought.

Heavily augmented and outfitted for siege assault and ship boarding actions, the Ironclad Dreadnought sacrifices versatility and long-range firepower for even greater armoured defence and dedicated siege weaponry such as the Seismic Hammer and Chainfist, designed to pulverize the toughest bastion or armoured bulkhead into twisted wreckage. The fearsome short-ranged firepower of a Hurricane Bolter is often used to augment the Ironclad's firepower, allowing the ancient hero within the sarcophagus to saturate breached defences with a deadly storm of bolter shells.
The MkIV Ironclad Dreadnought is a full-resin kit that comes complete with Hunter Killer Missiles and Frag Assault Launchers, furthering the Ironclad's potent weaponry, as well as additional armour plates to fit the resin MkIV Hurricane Bolter, MkIV Seismic Hammer and MkIV Chainfist and our other MkIV Dreadnought arms.

Each of these detailed kits is available to pre-order now for dispatch in the week commencing December 6th.

Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies vs Pandas... the game

Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies vs Pandas; the game the world has been waiting for!

Pan Vision and Tactile Entertainment’s physics-based demolition puzzler for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad hits the App Store this December.

 Stockholm, Sweden – Friday 12th November 2010. Pan Vision, a leading independent Nordic publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment, are pleased to announce that their new game Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies vs Pandas will be available to Apple handheld gaming fans this December.
Developed in partnership with Tactile Entertainment and with universally positive early demo presentations behind it, Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies vs Pandas (PNZP for short) is an addictive new physics-based puzzle game for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Players take control of the four factions, each launching their minions as projectiles at opposing armies in an effort to destroy their enemy’s defences and ultimately eliminate them.
The story of how it all began…

Rampaging through a deep bamboo forest in their endless hunt for buried treasure, Captain Ashbeard’s rum-soaked pirate crew hacked unwittingly through the den of the pandas, until they disturbed the “Fat Panda” leader from his tree high in the sky.

With one swipe of the Pirate’s blade the Fat Panda fell and tumbled like an out of control juggernaut towards the sacred land of the Ninja Masters and their ancient lotus grove. Furious and silently outraged the Ninjas watched as the Fat Panda barreled through their spiritual garden destroying all in his path.

Eventually, the Fat Panda came to rest crashing into the cursed graveyard, the domain of the Zombie King and his army of the undead. Disturbed from a 1000 year slumber the zombie army rose to face those who would dare awake them from their deathly rest.

It was at this tense moment that the Pirates, Ninjas, Zombies and Pandas faced off against one another. The Pirates vs Ninjas vs Zombies vs Pandas war had begun!
Commenting on the escalating situation, here’s what the faction representatives had to say:

Captain Ashbeard – “who arrrrr you? Is there any more rum?”
Nigel the Ninja – “ninjas don’t speak, we are silent and deadly….. oh wait, can I start again?”
The Zombie formerly known as Alan – “Braaaaaaiiins…”
An anonymous Panda – “The Pandas are not willing to comment on the situation at this time
