The three-on-three Multiplayer Online Battle Arena dash action-platformer Awesomenauts is now available on Steam. The ’80s-cartoon-themed brawler features eight characters battling it out using a variety of wacky weapons, including jetpacks and lightning swords. And to celebrate the PC launch, gamers who pick the game up before September 5 will receive Team Fortress 2 extras based off the Awesomenauts’ gear.
Jagged Alliance: Crossfire, the standalone expansion for Back in Action that was announced back in June, will launch next month on Steam and other digital outlets. Crossfire will include 10 new maps set within war-torn Khanpaa, as well as 10 new mercs to hire, new weapons, and new missions. And since the nation is on the brink of collapse, supplies will be scarce and weapons outdated. Back in Action fans will also be happy to hear that the AI will be improved, and that there will be options to toggle line of sight and fog of war.
Sega has released a new behind-the-scenes video for Aliens: Colonial Marines. The trailer, titled Authentic Aliens, is the first episode of a new series that follows Gearbox as they develop the video-game sequel to Aliens. The first-person shooter is a rarity for the franchise as its story is being considered canon, a first for any game set in the Aliens universe.
Rockstar has detailed their plans for Max Payne 3’s remaining DLC drops. After the Disorganized Crime Pack, a free download slated to come out later this month that will add a new multiplayer map, new modifiers for Score Attack, and other goodies, there will be three more content packs. The studio originally planned for five but has since decided to roll the content from the other two, New York Minute Co-Op Pack and Trickle Down Economics Map Pack, into the remaining three. Additional details are available below.
