10/24/2014 - Codemasters Releases Toybox Turbos
FIRE UP THE FUN WITH TOYBOX TURBOS – CODEMASTERS®’ TABLE TOP ARCADE RACER PACKED WITH RETRO THRILLS


SEE TOYBOX TURBOS’ MINIATURE MOTORISED MAYHEM IN DEBUT VIDEO NOW PLAYING AT WWW.TOYBOXTURBOS.COM

Friday 24th October  – Codemasters® today announced Toybox Turbos will bring a new world of retro table top racing to Windows PC from Steam on 12th November priced at £11.99 and will be coming soon to the Xbox Games Store for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and to the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system from the online store.

Featuring gameplay that reflects Codemasters’ fondly remembered miniature racing titles of the ‘90s, Toybox Turbos delivers a pick-up-and-play arcade racing extravaganza as gamers take a nostalgic tour of 18 obstacle and short-cut filled circuits inspired by childhood locations.  Players will speed past spilt sticky jam on the kitchen table, dodge flaming Bunsen burners as they take their opponents back to school and zip past the runaway train in races around a railway set and more. Gamers can see Toybox Turbos in action in a new gameplay video which is now playing at
www.toyboxturbos.com

Bursting with classic retro racing fun, Toybox Turbos includes four-player local and online multiplayer options, perfect for turning friends into foes with one-more-go gaming sessions that race into the night. Whether playing locally or online, or with a mix, Toybox Turbos brings alive the glory days of multiplayer score-settling competition with rapid-fire rounds designed for all-action racing.

Toybox Turbos features 35 vehicles to collect and customise, ranging from sports cars and dragsters to emergency vehicles, taxis, ice cream vans, construction vehicles, milk float, moon buggies and more!  Each can be raced in six super-charged game modes; players sprint for the line in Classic Races, set their best time in Time Trial, pass as many turbocharged toys as possible in Overtake, avoid getting wiped out by the tide in Escape, beat the clock in Countdown and take down bosses in Elimination mode. To gain the advantage, gamers can collect and use a range of power-ups spread liberally around each circuit, including, but not limited to, machine guns, mines, electronic pulses and, of course, giant hammers! 

Gamers can find out more about Toybox Turbos and keep up with all the latest updates straight from the studio, by speeding over to

Trendy Entertainment Expands Dungeon Defenders II ‘Defense Council’

More fans get a chance to join the Council and offer real-time feedback during development of the highly anticipated sequel

Gainesville, FL – October 21, 2014 – Trendy Entertainment today announced the expansion of the “Defense Council,” an advisory board that allows players with an interest in the development of Dungeon Defenders II to provide early, focused feedback directly to the development team. A limited number of Council seats have been made available and are now on sale, on a first-come first-serve basis.

New members to the Defense Council will have exclusive access to play the pre-alpha build of Dungeon Defenders II, and will receive regular patch updates along with links to build notes so they can see how things are constantly evolving thanks to their help.

New Defense Council members will also receive a digital package containing a number of exclusive one-time items and benefits, including:

• A Steam Code for the pre-alpha build of Dungeon Defenders II
• Access to the exclusive Defense Council forums on the new Dungeon Defenders community site, allowing Councilors to communicate directly with Trendy about the game and its direction
• Four exclusive Hero Embellishments
• An exclusive Tavern Item – a Council Demon Lord Trophy
• The player’s name in the game’s credits

In addition, players that upgrade to the Co-Op Pack will also receive a Dungeon Defenders II Friend Code, plus two copies of both the Dungeon Defenders Collection and Dungeon Defenders Eternity, and an extra exclusive goodie.

Players can sign up now at
https://www.dungeondefenders.com/2/store

Please note: The Council’s expansion is not the Early Access launch of Dungeon Defenders II. Instead, it is a limited opportunity for players to help craft and influence the development of the game before it’s ready for its full Early Access launch. The Defense Council is only available for PC. For much more information, including what else players can expect if they join the Council at this early stage, head over to
https://www.dungeondefenders.com/2/store

In Dungeon Defenders II, the land of Etheria has been invaded by the Old Ones and players must rally, alone or with friends, against the invasion. The game features brand new combat and defense placement systems that synchronize the roleplaying, action, and tower defense elements of the franchise for even more strategic gameplay. New defense and ability interactions make for exciting, emergent gameplay and new environmental traps increase variety and strategic planning throughout each level in the game.

Dungeon Defenders II is currently in development for PC, Mac, and Linux as a free-to-play title. For updates, visit
