Good Old Games is getting into the summer sale spirit with a new 18-day-long promotion, Summer Hidden Gems. The gems are a set of titles that the distributor feels need a little more attention. To see that they find their way onto more hard drives, GOG will pick a new title each day for the next 18 days to go on sale for 24 hours starting at 5:59 a.m. (EDT).
Square Enix is looking to up the pre-order ante with a new promotion for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. In conjunction with GameStop, gamers who pre-order Human Revolution at a participating store for the 360, PC, or PS3 will be entered into the Augment Your Living Room PowerUp Rewards contest. The winner will receive up to $20,000 in goods, ranging from a new television to home theater seating. The complete list of prizes is included below.
PlanetSide, one of the first massively multiplayer online first-person shooters, has been chugging along for over eight years now. While that’s impressive, fans have been itching for something more substantial than the random update for quite some time. Today, Sony announced that they are planning to deliver just that with PlanetSide 2. Auraxis will continue to host the war between the Terran Republic, New Conglomerate, and Vanu Sovereignty in their struggle for the planet’s remaining resources. Players will get to unlock traits and skill sets in a “free-form class-based” system as they level, as well as gain access to new squad options and vehicles. Days’ long battles will return as well, with hundreds of troops battling it out in the air, on the ground, and at sea.
