Tannenberg is out!

Of course were all want to live in peace and pray that war never reaches us. But at the same time war is a great concept for a video game, right? For the multiplayer fans who like to fight for justice during World War I, we have some good news; Tannenberg is out since February 13, 2019!

So, in a time where multiplayer games shooting out of the ground like mushrooms, is Tannenberg worth your time? Well, we dare to say: Yes! This game is created by the great people of M2H and Blackmill Games and they wanted to create a game where you can play together with 64 people at the same time.

You can choose between three game types. The first one is Maneuver, which is about capturing territory and drain your opponents of victory points. The second one is Attrition, which places two teams in a death-match, locked in a battle of attrition and the team with the most kills wins. Last but not least we have the rifle death-match. In this mode every player is on their own. And it's not called a rifle death-match for nothing, because skills with bolt action rifles will bring victory. Again, the player with the most kills wins.

The menu where you can select the mode you want to play always shows how many players are joining per game type and you can also create a private match. There are several maps to choose from like a East Prussia, Poland, Carpathians, Romania an Dorbrudja. So you have several options to play and replay!

Tannenberg has some great modes, maps and the game works like a charm. It's not the game that blows you away with stunning graphics, but it looks very decent and Tannenberg will definitely offer a great challenge. It's not easy to win a war ;) But hey, don't just take our word for it, why don't you try and play this game yourself? Tannenberg is available on Steam and there are several bundles and discounts at the moment to choose from.

First peek: Private Beta Tom Clancy: The division 2!

The private BETA of division 2 is officially closed. I was surprised by the size of the beta! Not saying size matters (awkward silence) But let’s see, what is the future of Division 2?

If D.C. falls, America will fall and in the Division this is exactly what happens. Now that the streets in this capital are lawless, it is up to you as a member of the division to gear up and use your unique skills as the last line of defense.

The Beta offered two main missions, five side missions, one dark zone and an open world play. During the Beta, Players can advance to level 7 and could explore the eastern section of Washington D.C. Unusual for a beta is that Ubisoft gave a sample of the Divisions 2 endgame which was impressive to me. The game already feels a lot more open than the previous title. The surroundings inside looks amazing and sharp, just like the shooting is smooth and feels amazing.

In my opinion, I was happy that the damage levels of the enemies are lowered in this title. But it’s still as tough, don’t expect this to be an easy picknick ya’ll. With the special abilities you will get stronger, but when you use the abilities the cool down is longer.

Although there are things I like to see changed in-game, all of this did make me curious for the full game. Yes, I am a bit skeptical. Mainly because of some glitches that hopefully will be fixed. For example, the was one glitch that was kinda funny, out of nowhere my character started running super fast. Like after-chili-night kinda fast.

So it’s not perfect, but than again, neither am I. And that's where beta's are for, right? In both matters it could work out. Hopefully, Ubisoft will listen to the players feedback, then I’m sure we have another great game to make us forget our responsibilities. (just kidding stay adult)

The great news is there will be an open beta for everyone available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One from March 1-4. See and experience the Beta yourself, let the chaos begin! The full game release is scheduled on 15 March, 2019.

Cooperative Puzzler Pode to Launch on PlayStation 4 February 19th!

Award-winning puzzle experience with stunning visuals and soundtrack by Austin Wintory available soon for PlayStation fans!

Independent developer Henchman & Goon today announced that their co-op exploration game, Pode, is coming to the PlayStation™ Store on February 19th. Giving center stage to teamwork, Pode positions players as heavily contrasting characters who need to work in sync using their distinct abilities to solve intricate puzzles and bring the world to life around them.

"We think of Pode as a game for everyone. Whether you play it with your child, a friend or a significant other, it has something for all,”  said Yngvill Hopen, Game Director and CEO at Henchman & Goon. “Since the launch on Nintendo Switch last year we’ve been getting loads of positive feedback from our players and we are excited to bring Pode to the PlayStation Store so that even more people can try out this bonding experience.”

Pode is a co-op puzzle exploration game about two unlikely travel companions, a rock Bulder and a fallen star Glo, going on a beautiful adventure within a mysterious and magical mountain. Through unique individual talents the duo revitalize the environment around them by working together to solve mind-bending puzzles. Featuring a musical track composed by the acclaimed Austin Wintory and visually inspired by Norwegian art and culture, Pode is a stunning exploration game that can be played alone or with a friend.

Pode won the development award for the Best Casual Game and was selected as a nominee for the People's Choice Awards, for the Best Quality of Art in GameConnection 2018, and recently won three national awards in Norway for “Best Art”, “Best Audio” and “Best Fun for Everyone” nominations. But the team is most proud of the grandest prize of them all, which is the praise from Captain Marvel, herself, Brie Larsson (see tweet).  For more information, visit:

Next month Henchman & Goon CEO Yngvill Hopen will be giving a talk at GDC under a title ‘Pode’, a Rose Painted Adventure. Attendees will gain insight into the visual development of 'Pode', and how traditional Norwegian art and cultural influences helped shape the atmospheric world in which it takes place. They will also get an understanding of the biggest challenges the team faced during development, and how they approached and overcame them.

Pode will launch on PlayStation 4 on February 19th! Please visit the official website or FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram.

Players will battle each other in an ever-growing list of mini-game modes that change every 20-30 seconds with outrageous level designs and rule sets to promote hours of laughter. Good-ol’ friend-destroying fun has been a trademark of Move or Die and the additional three years of content updates for the PS4® version will include numerous Mutators that drastically change how each game is played.
