12/12/2013 - Rising Empires Christmas Sale
12:55 am pst
Rising Empires Christmas Sale!
To celebrate the festive season and our major update of Rising Empires we're cutting the price of Rising Empires
Premium by 40%. For the next two weeks, Rising Empires Premium will be $1.99 only (standard price $3.49). The update on December
12th includes new graphics and features like road building.
Rivers and roads update allows players to connect their cities with roads, providing faster movement for footmen and cavalry.
Rivers, on the other hand, are hard to cross but give a large boost to the food output of the sectors where they flow. This
makes the placement of cities even more strategically important. Another improvement is new terrain and army graphics that
make the map more intuitive.
"The Rivers and roads update
marks an important turning point in the Rising Empires universe. All important features have now been implemented and we can
start working on adding an even higher degree of flexibility for the player to build the empire he or she wants," say
Rising Empires is a new 4x strategy game available
from Google Play and other app stores. In its recent review, Hardcore Droid gave it 4.8 out of the maximum 5 and concluded
'You’ll be hard pressed to find a mobile game that tackles the subgenre with greater success.’ Rising Empires
was developed by the independent Swedish studio Hellhound Interactive owned by the two brothers Johan and Peter Norberg. We
strive to create smart phone games which give a deeper gaming experience.

London, UK — December 9, 2013 — Today Ubisoft® announced that the first
DLC for Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag™ multiplayer, Blackbeard’s Wrath,

system and the PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system and from Tuesday on Xbox LIVE for Xbox One, the
all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Xbox® 360, computer entertainment system, and
Three new characters join the hunt, Blackbeard, the Jaguar and The Orchid, each character bringing their unique
skill set to battle for the title of best assassin.
Blackbeard, wielding a sword and a short temper is not to be
trifled with. His reputation as a feared pirate is justly received and his preferred kill moves include using his tremendous
strength to throw his targets off balance and then quickly finishing them with one clean strike.
The Orchid, a
Templar-friendly deadly assassin grew up in China, serving as a military advisor in the Quing dynasty where she honed her
murderous skills. She executes opponents swiftly and gracefully with her katana, an extension of her mind and body.
The Jaguar, Cuali, an Aztec warrior from Mexico, took to the sea to fight against the Spanish conquest of Central America.
A fighter, he survived the destruction of his community and joined forces with a growing contingency of native Templars who
sought renewed peace and order. Driven by a mystical force, The Jaguar fights like his namesake, striking swiftly and quietly
with his preferred weapon, a discreet axe.
All three characters are available in Assassin’s Creed IV
Black Flag multiplayer starting Tuesday, where they will join the hunt for survival.
For players interested
in the Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Season Pass, it’s available now and includes Freedom Cry –
