Job Simulator: Infinite Overtime Free Update Out Today

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017

Prepare to job… forever! The whole team at Owlchemy Labs is pleased to announce that Job Simulator is receiving a free content update today: Infinite Overtime. Players can work the endless night shift to their heart’s content with endless, randomized tasks. Along with the update, Job Simulator will also see a permanent price reduction to $19.99 USD.

The new “Infinite Overtime” mode allows players to work the never-ending night shift with randomized, endless tasks for each job in the game.

Hidden Agenda on PS4: Story vs. Competitive Mode

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017

I’m Will Doyle, game director for Supermassive Games’ Hidden Agenda.

I’m delighted to give you a sneak peek of our new crime thriller, which launches tomorrow on PS4. Hidden Agenda blends the best of games and movies, allowing up to six players to play through a cinematic, interactive story.

We’ve taken inspiration from various neo-noir thrillers to craft a tale of betrayal and revenge, set in a rainy, rundown city. You play Detective Becky Marney and District Attorney Felicity Graves as they hunt down the “Trapper” — a serial killer who rigs his victims with explosives to murder the responding officers.

Rule the Battlefield as the Emperor in Star Wars Battlefront II

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017

The Emperor has been expecting you.

Sheev Palpatine. One-time Senator from Naboo, former chancellor of the Republic, now ruler of the Galactic Empire. Secret Lord of the Sith and undisputed master of the dark side. And starting this November, you’ll be wielding his fearsome abilities in Star Wars Battlefront II.

At close range, the Emperor is especially potent, wrecking groups of enemies with his area effect attacks. The heart of the Emperor’s arsenal is his signature Force lightning. The iconic bolts of purple-blue energy fired from his hands serve both as the Emperor’s standard attack and as the basis for his special offensive abilities.

Star Wars Battlefront II: The First 90 Minutes

Posted by on Oct 19, 2017

Star Wars Battlefront II opens with an interrogation. Commander Iden Versio, disarmed and bound, glares at the Rebel soldier holding her captive. The slow, steady tension of the scene runs contrary to the often bombastic, spectacular battles that Star Wars is known for. But Iden’s story is one of military dedication, political motivation, loyalty, and betrayal. And bombastic, spectacular battles.

Iden serves as a humanizing element to the Empire — a force we have spent decades fighting in the Star Wars universe. She and the other agents of Inferno Squad represent the discipline and devotion that the Imperials glorify. But the most striking quality of her character impacts the entire narrative: her courtesy.

Introducing the Mini Wired Gamepad for PS4

Posted by on Oct 18, 2017

We’re pleased to introduce a new controller from Hori, the officially licensed Mini Wired Gamepad for PlayStation 4, designed with younger gamers in mind. This controller is 40% smaller than the DualShock 4 and has a simple form factor with a flat design that makes it easy to fit into smaller hands. Best of all, the controller has a low price of $29.99 USD (MSRP) / $39.99 CAD (MSRP), making it a great purchase for companion play on games like Knack 2.

The Mini Wired Gamepad provides the essential functions to play most PS4 games while still providing a great gaming experience — that includes the right and left sticks, R1/L1/R2/L2 buttons, directional buttons, and action buttons. Certain touch pad inputs can be simulated via the left or right sticks.
