01/11/2017 - Star Trek Online Celebrate 7th Anniversary
STAR TREK ONLINE CELEBRATES 7th ANNIVERSARY WITH SEASON 12 – RECKONING

Update Arrives January 26 with Featured Episode, New Space Queues and More

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – January 11, 2017 – Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online will kick off its 7th Anniversary with the release of Season 12 – Reckoning. The newest chapter to the 100% free-to-play MMORPG based on the classic Star Trek franchise releases on PC January 26 and on Xbox One and PlayStation®4 at a later date. Season 12 celebrates Star Trek Online’s upcoming anniversary with giveaways and mini-games, plus two new space queues, a new Research and Development System category and a featured episode titled “Of Signs and Portents.”
 
This year’s anniversary event for Star Trek Online offers captains the opportunity to complete in-game missions to earn exciting rewards, including the new Tier 6 Lukari Science Vessel, which the community selected the design for last fall. Players can also participate in two daily missions (Omega Molecule Stabilization Daily and Party Patrol) to earn special rewards and play the Omega Molecule Stabilization mini-game with Q to earn materials to construct crafting kits. Festivities also include server-wide giveaways for in-game items, which will take place soon on a daily basis leading up to the anniversary event release.
 
Season 12 – Reckoning continues the mission from Star Trek Online’s latest update, Agents of Yesterday: Artifacts. Under the leadership of Captain Kuumaarke, the Lukari have set out on a journey to investigate some unusual activity in an unexplored region of the Alpha Quadrant. Upon further inspection, they discover data that suggests weaponized use of protomatter. Fearing the Tzenkethi are behind this, they put out a call for help to the Alliance, who tasks captains from across the galaxy to help the Lukari prevent a looming cataclysmic attack.
 
Mission details for Season 12 – Reckoning will be revealed in the new featured episode, “Of Signs and Portents,” which will also feature the game’s first appearance of General Rodek, voiced by actor Tony Todd. The update also unlocks an expansive amount of content for captains to explore, including a new reputation, a new crafting school in the R&D System to create kits and modules, two brand-new space queues (“Gravity Kills” and “The Tzenkethi Front”) and a full space battlezone that has the Alliance pitting itself against the Tzenkethi in a desperate bid to stop the production and deployment of protomatter weapons.
 
Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game where players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship, become a Klingon Warrior and champion the Empire through the far reaches of the galaxy, or rebuild the Romulan legacy as the commander of a Romulan Republic Warbird. In Star Trek Online, players have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek universe, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species. Star Trek Online is currently available on PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

01/09/2017 - CyberPowerPC Partners with Oculus and AMD to Deliver $499 VR-Ready Gaming PC
CyberPowerPC Partners with Oculus and AMD to Deliver $499 VR-Ready Gaming PC


Full AMD Oculus Ready Gamer Ultra VR Gaming PC

 
CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA (January 9, 2017)—CyberPower Inc.,
www.cyberpowerpc.com , a global manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, gaming laptops, and performance workstations, today announced the immediate availability of its Gamer Ultra VR Desktop - an Oculus Ready gaming system in partnership with AMD and Oculus Rift. The system when bundled with the Oculus Rift headset, will retail at $499 at select online retail partners BestBuy and Amazon. Complete cost of the bundle with Rift headset is $1,099.98.
 
“This bundle will be the first complete AMD Oculus-ready gaming PC that provides the full experience of VR gaming at an affordable price,” said Eric Cheung, CEO of CyberPowerPC.
 
The system is fully powered by AMD technologies including the quad-core AMD FX 4350 processor and the all-new AMD Radeon RX 470 graphics card. The AMD FX processor line boasts the highest clock speeds you can get on a consumer desktop PC, with twice the cores and cache memory of similarly-priced competition. Additionally, the Radeon RX 470 includes 4GB of GDDR5, which provides high resolution gaming and VR-readiness out of the box.
 
The Gamer Ultra VR will also come with 8 GB of memory and a 1 TB hard drive to ensure that customers do not run out of space to store all their VR games and content.
 
As one of gaming’s newest frontiers, virtual reality has provided gamers with numerous hours of immersive and exciting gameplay. Oculus is a leading brand in the virtual reality gaming industry and among the first to bring modern VR technologies and commercially viable VR hardware to market for the masses with both Oculus Rift (PC) and Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus (mobile).
 
VR gaming has been, until now, limited to only those people who were able to afford high-end systems. With Oculus’ latest software and technology advancements such as Asynchronous Spacewarp, VR gaming is now readily available to more people on a wider range of gaming PCs.
 
“Less than a year after launching the Oculus Ready program, we’re thrilled to see that the all-in price for jumping into the highest-quality VR experience continues to drop by hundreds of dollars,” said Nate Mitchell, head of Rift, Oculus. “Thanks to the efforts of hardware companies like CyberPowerPC and AMD, more people will have the opportunity to enjoy the amazing games and experiences coming to Rift this year.”
 
This partnership between Oculus, AMD and CyberPowerPC brings more affordable VR ready PCs and headsets to the larger gaming community. The system offered in the bundle has been extensively tested by both CyberPowerPC and Oculus to ensure that it is perfectly compatible with the Oculus Rift headset and is officially certified Oculus Ready.
 
The Gamer Ultra VR Bundle will be available for purchase on BestBuy.com and Amazon.com starting January 9th that includes a CyberPowerPC Gamer Ultra PC along with the Oculus Rift Headset. http://radeon.com/en-us/oculus-ready-499-pc/
