Seize (And Hold) Your Fiefdom On PC, Mac, And Mobile In Total War Battles: Kingdom

After releasing Total War Battles: Shogun on mobile devices in 2011, Creative Assembly’s Digital Team is releasing another entry in the portable series, Total War Battles: Kingdom. The game takes place at the turn of the 10th century as players build their realms and fight with neighboring kingdoms for dominion.

Kingdom will release as a free-to-play title featuring multiplayer battles in which deception, subterfuge, and betrayal are viable means of maintaining dominance. The game’s persistent world means that your kingdom’s goings-on will chug along even when you’re not playing. It will also feature cross-platform play, letting you save your game in one place and pick up where you left off on another system.

Along with the game’s announcement comes a trailer and screenshots, which you can view below.

Atlus Announces Etrian Mystery Dungeon For North America

Hot off the excellent Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (our review), Atlus has announced another Etrian Odyssey mashup bound for North American shores. This time, the publisher is teaming up with Spike Chunsoft for Etrian Mystery Dungeon.

The Etrian side of the family will contribute to the party customization, with the Mystery Dungeon series contributing randomly generated dungeons with loads of loot. The third-person perspective will also resemble the Mystery Dungeon series instead of the first-person view found in the Etrian games.

The experience will borrow heavily from Mystery Dungeon’s roguelike roots, with Etrian characters driving the RPG elements. Atlus is planning to release the title on 3DS in Spring 2015.

The Sassanid Empire Capitalizes On Conflict In 'Red Horse' Trailer

The number of warring nations of Total War: Attila has increased by one: the Sassanid Empire of Persia claims a stake in the Roman/barbarian conflict. The red horse featured in a new trailer is a symbol of power among the Sassanid forces.

Creative Assembly’s latest strategy title is centered around the conflict between the Roman Empire and the Huns, but the Sassanid Empire of the Dark Ages exploits the confusion surrounding the conflict for military advantage. Leading any of the game’s numerous armies means, among other concerns, quelling mutinies to avoid civil war and ensure unity among your forces. The trailer below depicts the Sassanid army entering the stage of war.

In the future, everything is different – including the racing. Distance is a futuristic racer from indie studio Refract that's about more than just super speeds, and the self-billed survival racer has just been announced for the PS4.

The game is expected for the system sometime in 2015, and presents a new take on racing complete with platforming, barrel rolls, car-splitting lasers, flying, and much more. The game is not only about survival, but the "tracks" are also somewhat freeform in that they encourage you to explore and go in different directions; breaking away from linearity.

Distance features various multiplayer modes as well as an Adventure mode that introduces players to the car's functions via a short story.
