05/29/2014 - Activision Reveals Call of Duty Ghost Invasion DLC Pack
11:25 pm pdt
ACTIVISION REVEALS CALL
OF DUTY: GHOSTS INVASION AS THIRD EPIC DLC PACK FOR 2014, COMING FIRST, EXCLUSIVELY TO XBOX 3rd JUNE
Invasion DLC Pack Delivers Four New MP Maps and the Next
Chapter in Extinction’s Four-Part Episodic Storyline
More Unique Field Orders Debut in New DLC
Pack, Including The Death Mariachi, Anubis – the Half Jackal/Half Human Protector of the Dead and Ghost Pirates
London, UK – 29th May, 2014 – Call of Duty® fans should mark their calendars
and prepare for Invasion, as Activision and Infinity Ward today revealed the third massive DLC Pack
for Call of Duty®: Ghosts. Launching 3rd June first, exclusively on Xbox Live for
Xbox One and Xbox 360, Call of Duty®: Ghosts Invasion delivers four
new multiplayer maps from unique locales around the world, each with hidden secrets and unique Field Orders. Invasion
also includes “Episode 3: Awakening,” the next thrilling chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative
taking players deep into an alien underworld to discover the truth behind the Cryptid attack.
is available a la carte or as part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass, which
gives fans access to all four epic Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Packs** planned for release in 2014
– Onslaught, Devastation, Invasion and
Invasion’s four new small-to-medium-sized multiplayer
maps feature the fast-paced gameplay Call of Duty fans crave, each one donning a distinct look, feel and unique killstreak.
“Departed” is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration.
The colourfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners and players that complete
the map’s unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death
Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band and a temporary squad mate.
“Pharaoh” is the abandoned archaeological site of an ancient Egyptian palace. Players will have to be
on the lookout for collapsing monuments and urns full of flesh-eating scarabs, among other surprises in this multi-level map.
Inside the palace, gamers will battle through multiple chambers ideal for close-quarters combat and short-range weapons, all
under the watchful eye of Anubis, the half-jackal/half-human, protector of the dead, who will handsomely reward players who
unlock this map’s Field Order.
Invasion’s third map, “Mutiny,”
transports players to a remote Caribbean island harbouring an eerie pirate hideout complete with abandoned trading posts and
prison cells. Speed and stealth are a must as players navigate the narrow and intertwining pathways. However, let ye be warned
that gamers taking up positions on the pirate ship moored in the centre of the map will become vulnerable to enemy fire from
the numerous flanking routes created by the map’s horseshoe shaped dock. Players that unlock “Mutiny’s”
Field Order will find themselves escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates, who will happily send enemy combatants down to Davey
Jones’ locker on their behalf.
Invasion’s fourth multiplayer map is a refreshed
version of the fan-favourite map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, “Favela.” Since its original
release, the Brazilian shantytown has seen substantial change. Buildings once under construction are now complete, while others
have crumbled into a state of disrepair. Players must avoid falling to their death as they traverse the map from one building
to the next, with ramshackle scaffolding creating varied pathways between structures and enemy snipers taking advantage of
the long sightlines. Players who complete the Field Order in “Favela” will be able to call in heavy air support
from a nearby Y-8 Gunship to bring the rain with a 105mm cannon, a 40mm auto-cannon and a 25mm cannon.
the Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC Pack is the next instalment in the game’s Extinction
mode episodic narrative, “Episode 3: Awakening.” In Awakening, the team descends into the perilous alien underworld
to strike at the subterranean fortress of the Ancestors – the mysterious puppet-masters behind the Cryptid invasion.
Armed with a range of new hi-tech weapons and equipment, the team must penetrate a series of defensive barriers to reach the
Ark and unlock the secrets of the Ancestors’ psychic powers. As the final battle draws closer, the fate of the Earth
and the future of the human race hang in the balance.
Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion will
be available 3rd June first, exclusively on Xbox Live for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system
from Microsoft and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, with other platforms to follow. Call
of Duty: Ghosts is rated PEGI 16. Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion is published by Activision
Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) and developed by Infinity Ward.

05/27/2014 - Mind Zero Ships Today for PS Vita
10:22 pm pdt
Torrance, CA – Aksys Games opens the doors to the Inner Realm: Mind Zero is being unleashed upon the world! Exclusive to the PlayStation®Vita
handheld entertainment system, Mind Zero’s brand of strategic first-person dungeon-crawling will be available in North
America digitally, with physical copies shipping out on May 27th. In Europe, Mind Zero will be made available digitally
on May 28th.
Open Your Mind to Another World
To secure a physical copy, be sure to order soon as sales will be brisk!
at Amazon and Gamestop!
Watch our developer diary #3 to better understand the relationship the characters of Mind Zero have with
the otherworldly beings known as MINDs!
Gripping, Otherworldly Tale
Precarious situations quickly befall Kei and his group of friends
as they soon find themselves inexplicably whisked away to a mysterious weapon shop. There they meet an undertaker whose payment
for strange, otherworldly weapons may require more than they’re willing to offer! As they progressively delve further
into the "Inner Realm," a spiritual plane that is connected to our "Outer Realm," it becomes apparent
that the two worlds are more than just connected: the events of one affect the other!
Risk-Reward Battle System
Each turn, players will find themselves challenged to balance the use of
each character’s MIND. MINDs are spiritual beings who act as shields and are generally more powerful than the characters
themselves, but should a character run out of Mind Points while using one, they will be left temporarily vulnerable. Continue
your MIND onslaught against the strange spirits of the Inner Realm, or take a more defensive stance and recharge your Mind
Points? The choice is yours, but choose carefully!
Hauntingly Atmospheric World
All manner of demons, spirits, and creatures of Japanese mythology await you in the unsettlingly dark dungeons of the Inner
Realm. Music with a ghostly tinge accompanies you on your journey as you leave the familiar behind. Always prepare for the
worst, because in Mind Zero you never know what sort of vicious demons could be lurking nearby!
Dual audio support: Japanese and English!
• 30-50+ Hours of gameplay: uncover the
secrets of the Inner Realm!
• Conveniently speed up battles on the fly.
