Bound By Flame Developer Brings Sci-Fi RPG Action To Mars

about X hours ago from

Following last year’s Bound By Flame, Focus Home has announced that developer Spiders is trading in their fantasy world for a science fiction take on Mars.

The Technomancer puts players in the shoes of a man who specializes in the combination of technology and magic, as he flees from the Secret Police during a war over Mars’ resources. Focus Home hasn’t released much information about the RPG, but the announcement comes alongside a small set of images you can see below.

A few features have been announced for the game, such as crafting that affects character appearances, interactive conversations, and a handful of combat styles, but Focus Home hasn’t said much about the game’s broader strokes so far. Cyberpunk themes were also hinted at, but whether the game falls into that category or leans on more standard sci-fi is unclear.

about X hours ago from

DM Racing (an imprint of DMi Games) has announced that it is releasing NASCAR 15 to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this spring – the first offering from the new rights holders of the stock car association license.

The retail version of the game will be sold exclusively at GameStop [Full Disclosure: Game Informer is owned by GameStop] for $19.99 on May 22. At the same time, a PC edition will be on Steam, and you can also download the game on Xbox Live and PlayStation Marketplace for those respective systems.

Befitting its price, NASCAR 15 (developed by Eutechnyx) is not a full-fledged sequel to NASCAR 14, but rather a standalone update to last year's game. NASCAR 15 features the season's new schedule, driver changes, over 60 paint schemes, bug fixes, and tweaks to the online multiplayer to ensure the promised 16-player races.

Open-World Pirate Game Gets A New Trailer And Release Date

Tasharen Entertainment’s randomly generated, open-world sailing game is making its way out of Early Access on May 12, and there’s a new trailer to go along with the announcement.

If Windward looks familiar, it’s because it shares a lot in common with the Sid Meir’s classic, Pirates. Don’t expect to find a lot of political maneuvering in Windward, though, as it’s focus is on combat in much the same way as Assassin’s Creed IV. Like Black Flag, players take part in fast-paced battles of supremacy, upgrading their ship along the way. Check out the trailer below to see Windward in action:
