Spiders Studio has released an update to address text and voice-over issues for the English version of their cyberpunk action-RPG Mars War Logs. The update, available today, features re-recorded dialog and edited caption and story text in order for the translated version to be more in line with the French original. A new video covering the first seven minutes of the game has been released to show the update in action.
The quarter-destroying duo of Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara have been brought back from the past with the release of Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara today for PC and PS3 and tomorrow for 360. The Iron Galaxy-developed double pack features both beat ‘em ups and a host of extras, including unlockable concept art, new House Rules customization options, and four-player local and online multiplayer support with drop-in/drop-out play. Players will select one classic D&D class, from the deadly warrior to the powerful mage, and go on an adventure that features branching paths, a lite RPG-style leveling system, and a new dynamic Challenge system.
Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops II’s next download pack, Vengeance, will launch on July 2 for 360. The Treyarch-developed drop will feature four new maps set across the globe: Cove, Detour, Rush, and Uplink. Cove is set on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean, while Detour is set on a destroyed suspension bridge. Rush takes place on an abandoned paintball course, and Uplink is a re-imagined version of Summit from the first Black Ops. The pack will also include a new themed Zombies addition, Buried. Players will have to battle the undead as they try to return to their homes in an Old West mining town, but now they will have access to the new Ray Gun Mark II.
The pinball maestros at Zen Studios have announced that their Sorcerer’s Lair table for Pinball FX2 is now free on Steam. This is permanent, and for those unfamiliar with Pinball FX2, it’s also free as it serves as the platform for downloading the (normally) for-pay tables.
