Drox Operative’s first expansion, Invasion of the Ancients, is now available for download, as its demo. The Ancients were the races that dominated the galaxy before the Drox rose to power, but who later fell to the Drox and their Operatives. Now that the Drox are no more, the Ancients have returned for revenge, and the remaining Operatives are their prime target. Their return brings with it 19 playable subraces, new quests, new components, military and production space stations, the new Scavenger race, and new Legion, Overlord, and Talon monsters.
inXile has brought back Wasteland. Not the successful Kickstarter-funded sequel but the 1988 original, courtesy of digital distribution. Released last Friday as a backer reward for its Kickstarter campaign, Wasteland 1 – The Original Classic is now available for all via GOG.com and Steam. The $5.99 download takes players back to 2087, 89 years after a nuclear war has left Earth irradiated and nearly uninhabitable. As the leader of a band of Rangers, players will take to the wilds in order to battle bandits and mutated animals as they track down a new, even more dangerous threat. This latest version has been updated to run on modern systems and includes an expanded save function, new voice-over work, support for higher resolutions (with a choice of classic or smooth visuals), tracks from Wasteland 2, and text from the original pack-in book and manual.
More is being revealed of the latest incarnation of Thief. Square Enix has released new screenshots and concept art from a mission titled Lockdown. Set at the beginning of the game, Lockdown’s objective requires that Garrett make his way through the city after it has been locked down by Baron Northcrest. The Baron is attempting to prevent an uprising by the people after the outbreak of The Gloom, an illness that is spreading amongst the populace, causing them to hear voices and suffer from horrific nightmares. Garrett’s hideout is on the other side of the city, but on his way to safety, he decides to make a quick detour to check out some jewels.
