Sega Reveals Total War: Rome II - Emperor Edition

SEGA has announced Total War: Rome II - Emperor Edition which collects all the free content to date with the new Campaign Pack expansion and more. Read on.

SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe, Ltd. today announced Total War™: ROME II – Emperor Edition, the definitive edition of the best-selling game in the Total War™ series from Creative Assembly. Emperor Edition collects together all free content to date, which includes wide-ranging revisions, additions to game features and adds a brand new Campaign Pack expansion, ‘Imperator Augustus’. Most importantly, existing ROME II players will receive all of the above content via automatic update on the day of launch, upgrading them to Emperor Edition at no cost.


The new ‘Imperator Augustus’ Campaign Pack adds hundreds of hours of sandbox gameplay across a new campaign map reflecting the geopolitical boundaries of the Second Triumvirate War. Players will determine the outcome of a vast civil war, which saw Octavian, Marc Antony and Lepidus vying to become the very first Emperor of Rome.

Alongside all feature updates from launch (including Twitch.tv integration, touch controls, new factions, new units and now the Mac version), Emperor Edition also features an improved politics system, overhauled building chains, rebalanced battles, and improved visuals in both campaign and battle.

Mike Simpson, Creative Director of the Total War team, said: “ROME II was far and away our most ambitious game. We see more people playing, and playing for longer, than any other game in the Total War series. However, we take our players’ feedback very seriously. Through the multitude of improvements and free content updates we’ve brought to ROME II since its launch, we’ve worked hard to try and meet their expectations. We want Emperor Edition to be remembered as one of our finest games.”

The design of Emperor Edition was led by Jack Lusted, Development Lead of CA’s New Content Team. “With the Imperator Augustus Campaign Pack, we wanted to recreate the vast civil war which erupted after Julius Caesar’s murder,” said Lusted. “You can tackle the campaign as various Roman and non-Roman factions, including Armenia for the first time. Our aim was to represent the titanic power struggle that led to Octavian becoming the first Emperor of Rome. It’s a pretty epic campaign, and it’s great that we can offer this to existing ROME II players for free as a thanks for their support”.

Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments Releasing On September 30

Focus Home Interactive has announced that Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments will release on September 30th for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Read on to learn more.

Not content with merely examining crime scenes, Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments – your new investigation game for PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360® and PC from Frogwares coming on September 30th - showcases a unique set of skills aimed at cataloguing facts about a person by their appearance, which may raise doubts about their claims and stories.


Re-evaluating clues gained from interrogations, physical evidence, observations and crime-scenes will unlock further paths of deduction, and lead to more clues and dialogue options. During interrogation scenes, you’ll be able to interject, and support your argument by selecting the piece of evidence that supports your case. Successfully doing so will leave the suspect astounded, and they’ll soon crumble in the face of Holmes’ skills, and your wits, eventually revealing more information about the case.

Across six unique cases, you’ll meet up to five suspects per investigation, all of whom could logically be connected to the crime, enough to have committed it. Each suspect can be convicted, and in some cases suspects can be convicted together, so it’s imperative that detectives develop an understanding of the characters and their backgrounds to supplement information gained from examining crime scenes, in order to build the clearest picture from which to deduce the most likely culprit.

Crimes and Punishments is coming to the PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC, on September 30th.

To learn more, visit the official Crimes and Punishments website.

Extreme Reality Announces Launch of DanceWall Remix

Extreme Reality has announced the launch of their motion controlled PC game entitled DanceWall Remix. Read on to learn more.

Extreme Reality, the only company to bring full-body 3D motion controlled gaming to any device via a standard 2D camera, today announced the launch of DanceWall Remix, an interactive motion controlled PC game available for download on 40 online game stores, including Steam (the world's largest online gaming platform with 35 million active users in 237 countries), Gamersgate and Gram.pl. DanceWall Remix allows dance/game enthusiasts to select from their favorite genres, disco, classic, or retro, and provides an interactive motion controlled game by simply using any PC device and a webcam -- no console is required.


"For the first time, any PC device owner can access and interact with Extreme Reality's newest motion controlled game, DanceWall Remix, without touching a controller or connecting to a console. This new found freedom is dramatically changing the face of motion gaming," said Sarit Firon, CEO of Extreme Reality. "The fact that DanceWall Remix is launching on Steam, among 40 additional online game sites, is a testament to the future of 3D, full-body motion gaming."

DanceWall Remix is an interactive rhythm and pose matching game controlled by a player's body movements. Each player can make physical body poses that transform the onscreen silhouette to fit through approaching silhouetted shapes and holes on a rapidly approaching wall. Using the standard 2D camera that commonly exists in most PC computers, players can control movement of their in-game silhouette as they aim to reach their goal to earn the highest score by making the best possible fit with these onscreen silhouettes, picking up bonuses, and avoiding obstacles. The physical gameplay is immediately intuitive and doesn't require any previous experience with video games to quickly enjoy the fun.

Divided into three themes, Disco, Classic and Retro, each DanceWall Remix genre has a unique look and feel based on the associated music. Retro is an 8Bit inspired synthetic world of electronic music. Classic is a "Bubblegum-Pop" world where everything is pretty and playful, and Disco is thematic of a '70s nightclub.

Offered as an SDK, Extreme Reality's Extreme Motion is the only technology to provide full-body, software-based, motion analysis and control to any computing device or operating system via a standard 2D camera. The patented technology allows developers to easily add motion control to existing games or applications, and to create a wide range of new experiences.

Developers interested in integrating Extreme Motion technology into their game or app can visit the Extreme Reality developer zone at http://www.xtr3d.com/developers.

The Instant Replay feature enables gamers to capture the best moments from any gaming session even after they’ve happened, via a user-configurable hotkey combination.
