A new book based on id’s upcoming shooter Rage is now available to prime you for the post-apocalyptic world that awaits this fall. The Matthew Costello-penned novel follows Lieutenant Nick Raine as he steps out of an underground Ark and onto an Earth devastated by an asteroid impact. Hundreds of years have passed, and Raine finds a world populated by mutants, bandits, haggard survivors, and a brutal faction known as the Authority. With his goal to restore civilization (simple!), Raine will have to face down the dangers of the wilds.
Square Enix is revisiting a classic franchise today with the launch of Elevator Action Deluxe on the PlayStation Network for the PS3. The $9.99 HD remake includes new enemies, new traps, and new challenges to meet as you take your spy down through the enemy’s buildings to steal their super secret documents.
Vanguard Games’ twin-stick shooter Gatling Gears has launched on Origin, EA’s rebranded online distribution store. Currently available for the 360 and PS3, the $9.99 top-down shooter puts players in the shoes of Max Brawley and his Gatling Gears mech as he faces down the might of the Empire to stop them from harvesting the Earth’s resources. Alone or with a friend in on- or offline co-op play, players will fight the Empire through 30 environments using gatling guns, grenades, and rockets, collecting the leftover debris to earn point multipliers and upgrades.
Serious Sam: Double D, the first release in the Serious Sam Indie Series, is now available from Mommy’s Best Games on Get Games, Steam, and other download outlets. The $7.99 2D shooter includes 80,640 gunstacker combinations—take a gun, then stake another on top, then another, and then another, etc.—an 18-level campaign set across three time periods, 12 challenge levels, 25 monsters, 70 secret areas, and “ginormous boss encounter.”
El Presidente has deemed you worthy of his services—for a price. Players are once again given the chance to see the aviator-shadded tyrant in action as you both bring an island and its inhabitants to glory (or ruin) with Tropico 4 for the PC.
Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, a compilation comprised of Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2, and (fortunately) Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, is now available for the PS3 on PSN. Xbox owners will be able to get in on the action tomorrow when the game launches on Live. PC gamers have to wait a bit longer, unfortunately, as Kollection isn’t due out for PC until later this month. The 800 MS Point/$9.99 set also includes online play, leaderboards and achievements/trophies.
