Free awesome games for the upcoming weekend!

Ready for another round of free games playable this weekend?

The first publicly playable alpha version of Aftercharge — a clever yet deceptively simple first-person multiplayer game — will go live on Steam. In Aftercharge, one team of three invisible robots works to destroy six energy extractors on the map, while another team of three indestructible (and heavily-armed) human(oid) guards attempts to stop them. It sounds simple, right? Think again. Each team features three class types uniquely suited to combat the opposing team’s individual abilities.   Check the Steam page for more info and to download your copy!

Grab your shashka and get ready for a winter offensive!

The two studios behind Verdun - Blackmill Games and M2H – reveal more details about their new title Tannenberg, scheduled for Early Access release on November 16 on PC via Steam!

Tannenberg will be coming to PC for Windows, Linux, SteamOS and Mac on November 16, where it will be available to buy in Early Access from Steam for $17.99. Arriving alongside the release will be a new trailer and a special bonus for Tannenberg buyers who already own Verdun! The Early Access period for Tannenberg is planned to last until Q1 2018, and will be used to incorporate final polish and balancing based on feedback from their player base.

What to Expect?
A new 64 person game mode will let players experience the different nature of warfare on the Eastern
Front – in the new Maneuver battles the action will flow unpredictably as both sides try to outflank and effectively encircle enemy positions. Instead of static trench lines and alternating attack and defense, players will attempt to capture important positions such as signal posts and ammunition dumps reflecting the enemy army’s supply and links with their headquarters. Larger maps and the higher player counts will give these battles a real sense of scale as both sides frantically attempt to encircle each other and break out of any pockets that form.

Russian Cossack troops with their lethal shashka sabres will be a powerful force in these battles for vital positions. As with everything else in Tannenberg, the new game mode, troops and weapons are firmly based in reality. Until then things aren’t going to be silent until the release though! More details are available in the FAQ, and the developers are releasing regular Frontline News updates showing off what they’ve been working on and dropping details about Tannenberg. You can read them on the Steam Community page.

1914-1918 series
Starting out on the Western Front with the release of the first realistic WW1 FPS Verdun back in April 2015, and expanding to the Eastern Front with the upcoming Tannenberg, the 1914-1918 series throws players into intense warfare inspired by the chaos and fury of iconic battles from the First World War. With over 900,000 copies of Verdun sold, this novel and underserved setting has proven popular with the gaming community!

Players choose from a variety of historically accurate squads and weapons, with more available to unlockthrough playing the game, before diving into the mud and blood splattered battlefields of dynamic multiplayer trench warfare. Every game is built on a base of thorough research and receives extensive post-release support bringing new content and challenges for our players. The games in the series are linked, but each one is standalone and provides a different experience, reflecting the nature of the fighting in the many-sided theaters of the war.

Warlords of Aternum – InnoGames Relaunches Mobile Strategy Game!

InnoGames announced the relaunch of its mobile strategy game Warlords under the new name Warlords of Aternum. The update comes with a series of new features, additional content and new balancing. From now on the new version is available in the Google Play Store and App Store. Already existing accounts don’t lose any game progression with the release of the update. InnoGames acquired Warlords from Berlin-based studio Wooga in February this year.

One of the biggest changes of the update is the new Warlord Level. This new feature will essentially track the overall progression of a player based on regiment upgrades. Regiment upgrades grant Warlord XP. Once a player has earned enough Warlord XP to fill up their current level progression, they’ll move to the next Warlord Level. This way, players are more motivated to not only level up their favorite 2-3 regiments but also play with newly unlocked regiments for more diversity in the game.

Additionally, the update features a new boss called Drrakha. The new enemy becomes available as a new point of interest on the map. Drrakha can drop his own shards when defeated, and he is also likely to drop shards for a brand-new regiment called League’s Predators. The new unit comes with the abilities Impale which deals 100% more physical damage and Embrace the Pain which leads to 20% less damage from enemies.

Philip Bang, Studio Director InnoGames: “Warlords was already a great game when we acquired it back in February but now it’s even better! Over the last months, our new Warlords team invested a lot of time and energy into analyzing the game and the player preferences. With this first update, we keep the fun parts of the game, add more content and features and optimize the overall game experience.  We’re looking forward to the players’ feedback and are already working on new updates for the future.”
