When family is all you have left... how far will you go to protect it? Years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to protect his family, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.
Also confirmed today, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will act as both a new beginning for players fresh to the series and unfamiliar with Clementine, as well as a continuation for players who have experienced Seasons One and Two. Players new to the series will be able to start a story that is tailored to this new beginning. Players continuing onward from prior seasons will have multiple options for quickly configuring their tailored backstory, or importing past save files from various platforms. Additional information on this feature will be detailed in the coming week.

11/30/2016 - New Update for Awesomenauts Assemble on Xbox One and PS4
Awesomenauts Assemble! – Now updated on Xbox One and PlayStation®4

The latest update for Awesomenauts Assemble! contains a brand new character called Ix the Interloper. This character was designed in cooperation with the Awesomenauts community and is one of the most unique Awesomenauts in our line-up! Ix the Interloper is a character who can bond with other characters and swap places with them, allowing Ix to move friendly ‘Nauts out of harm’s way and opponents out of position. To complement this ability, Ix is also able to assume an ethereal form that renders the character invulnerable for a short period of time.

On top of being designed by the Awesomenauts community during a Design-a-Naut contest, Ix even has a theme song produced by community member MrMacke, who has been making acapella covers of Awesomenauts song for years.

In addition, we’re adding Assists in this update to reward players for participating in team takedowns, and are addressing a lot of small issues to improve the overall user experience. This is the first update we’ve released for the Xbox One version since the game launched in September, and we’re also fixing some platform-specific issues players encountered there, including some problems with Achievements!

We’re currently working on a new character called Max Focus, and he’ll be included in the next update for consoles. We expect to release that update early next year.

2017 is going to be a very exciting year for Awesomenauts, and we have lots of content lined up for all versions of the game. We’ll continue to keep the console versions updated frequently.

The full patch notes for this update are available here:

11/29/2016 - World Reveal for New Riders of Icarus December Update

New Ranger Class, Increased Level Cap, and New Region with Unique Mounts Will Expand Mounted Battles by Land and Air in Free-to-Play MMORPG

LOS ANGELES – NOV. 29, 2016 – Riders enjoying the open beta of
Riders of Icarus will soon receive the gift of new content – and lots of it – just in time for the holiday season, with the Rangers Fury update on Thursday, Dec. 15. The update will bring a wealth of new experiences, including an increased level cap of 50, a vast and challenging desert zone, and the first new character class since open beta launched earlier this year, the Ranger, who features a unique blend of close- and long-range combat options. In addition, nine new mounts will be introduced in the game for players to capture and collect, including Longhorn Bajarn, Matura, Panos, Poyo, Shakiba, Trinoceros, Tolus, Vegarus and Voknos.
The Ranger
With the God of Ruin's blood running through their veins, Rangers tap into a special dark power to augment their skills, allowing players to utilize their talents to destabilize enemies with up-close attacks and then destroy them from range. In the Riders of Icarus universe Rangers work for the Hakanas Kingdom as shadow agents of the special ops division in Onyx Order.
Key features of the Ranger include:
  • Two Combat Styles – Exclusive to the Ranger are two new combat styles for players to experience and master – long range combat with the bow or close quarters combat with the Vambrace.
  • Skill Specialization – Players can also focus their talents on the Vambrace, Bow or Chaos skills – both of which deliver vastly different playstyles. Specializing in the Bow is best for players who enjoy ranged combat while the Vambrace is perfect for experts who desire crowd control skills. Focusing on Chaos brings continuous damage to enemies, the ability to heal allies, and buffs and debuffs to players.
Cloying Wastes
Ranger’s Fury also adds the new Cloying Wastes zone, a vast desert with secrets to uncover and dangers to overcome. Beginning at Level 40, players can explore this new land and encounter new mounts to tame, while dealing with the oppressive heat that affects health regeneration. There are several factions that inhabit the land, including the Alseik guard, the Griffin Knights and a town of hermits populated by disillusioned heroes.
Other landmarks and dungeons to experience in the Cloying Wastes include:
  • Temple of Sands – A collapsing temple, dedicated to the demigod Skatrasha, which was invaded by the Khabim Brotherhood in search of a secret power to further their evil goals. Players must battle through an army of Khabimist thugs and magical constructs to stop the group from seizing this power.
  • Fortress of Sorrows – A towering citadel that dominates the northern landscape of the Cloying Wastes where the mysterious Fallen Legion organization resides as they cause chaos in the desert. Players will need to unite their allies to launch an assault in this near-impregnable fortress.
