10/28/2016- Superfight Now 80% Off During Steam Halloween Sale
SUPERFIGHT 80% Off During Steam Halloween Sale – Now Includes Classic Mode!


Eugene, OR — October 28th, 2016 — SUPERFIGHT is now available for a massive 80% discount from its regular price of $9.99. Not only that, there’s also a 30% discount to all existing DLC; excluding the Horror & Election DLC which was just released. It has never been a better time to join in on a game of absurd arguments with friends!

Most importantly, we’ve also released a free update which includes Classic Mode bringing the digital version of SUPERFIGHT closer than ever to its physical counterpart. With the addition of Classic Mode the game now supports up to 8 players, doubling the maximum number of players.

Classic Mode's format is much closer to the physical version of Superfight: the winner of a round continues on to fight the next player. At game creation, players decide on how many round wins determine the game winner. With more players, and more traditional rules - this modes allows you to include more friends in a game and play the game in a way most are used to. 

What is SUPERFIGHT?

SUPERFIGHT pits players against one another in hypothetical battles of real wit. The only way to win is to make the most compelling argument about the big questions in life: Who would win in a fight between a drunk Ninja and Abraham Lincoln riding a bear? Which is the better weapon: an infinite sausage lasso or a skunk on a stick? What are the chances an army of penguins could stop a depressed centaur? Grab a microphone, join or create a game with up to 4 players, and let the votes decide!

Build your fighter with character cards (like Zombie, Shark, or George W. Bush) and attribute cards (like Super Speed, Armed with a Chainsaw, or Has Tiny T-Rex Arms). When it’s your turn, simply pick one character card and one attribute card to construct their fighters, then after getting another random attribute, it’s up to you to make your case to an audience of friends or Twitch! The included FREE Blue, Purple, and Challenge Decks also allow players to throw hundreds of random locations, scenarios, and challenges into the mix for even MORE mayhem. Additional themed decks, like the R-rated Red Deck or the Geek themed Orange Deck, are available to purchase, with even more hilarious digital decks to come in future updates

SUPERFIGHT’s fantastically fabulous features:

·         PLAY with a group of up to four players using matchmaking or inviting your friends.
·         VOTE on fighters from previous games, guessing a matchup’s outcome to earn rewards.
·         ARGUE using integrated in-game voice and optional webcam support to make your case!
·         WATCH and vote for winners in live broadcasts of fights directly within Superfight or any device with Twitch!
·         COLLECT over 500 additional cards, on top of the 200+ cards unlocked immediately upon purchase, as you Play or Vote!

10/26/2016 - Wargaming Reveals Special Halloween Events
Wargaming Has Stirred Up Some Horrifying Events for Halloween

Monstrous vehicles are unleashed in World of Tanks on console Xbox, PlayStation®4 and World of Warships PC

October, 2016 — This Halloween, be afraid. Be very afraid. When the portal between our world and another realm weakens, terror strikes both land and sea. An otherworldly horde has invaded, sparking an epic battle between good and evil in World of Warships PC and World of Tanks on Xbox and PlayStation®4.

From 27 until November 10, Earth’s fate will be decided in the unique World of Warships PvE mode, “Saving Transylvania”. In it, you can team up with players in a Division to keep “Transylvania”, a steamship, safe on the waters.

Your armada includes Blade, a destroyer with devastating torpedoes; Jackal sports two massive fists at its bow, perfect for ramming those pesky zombie ships, and Igor is a monster-of-all-trades, with spookily sputtering Tesla effects.

Once you have chosen your frightful ship, your mission is to protect and escort Transylvania to safety, while a flotilla of zombie ships and catapult fortifications, led by the devilish Rasputin, try to sink you every step of the way.

In tanks… no one can hear you scream! On October 28, the Monster Mash begins for World of Tanks on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Brave tankers can play on the creepily reworked Himmelsdorf map “Dead City” with the Spectre tank, along with “awakened” monster versions of the Revenant Kraft’s Panther, Lycan T71, Gorynych KV-5 and Kaiju O-I. Two challenging PvE modes "Beware the Full Moon" on Himmelsdorf Night and "Hunt the Revenants” on Thiepval Ridge will be the ultimate showdown between the Spectre and “awakened” monster vehicles. Half-beast, half-tank, ALL HORROR!
