Eugen Systems, developers of the much underrated R.U.S.E., is gearing up for the release of their upcoming real-time strategy title, Wargame: European Escalation. Set to launch later this year, Escalation Europe will feature 320 playable units, the IrisZoom feature for region-wide planning and local fighting, as well as a what-if story where NATO goes to war against the Warsaw Pact in 1975. A recently launch website includes more details, media, and a forum to keep the community updated. The studio also released four new shots of the game, showing off some of the armor and air units.
Rise of Nightmares, Sega’s upcoming Kinect-only action-horror title, recently found itself the recipient of a GameStop preorder bonus program, and now it looks like Amazon is following suit.

Supergiant Games’ Bastion, recently released on Live Arcade, will be launching on the PC in less than two weeks.

Bastion will launch on additional download outlets later this month, but in addition to being first out, the Steam version will also support Steamworks for Cloud saves, achievements, and leaderboards.

The winner will also be made into a character for the game—a trip and immortality, a double whammy.
