35w ago - Wizarbox Project Manager Julien Millet has posted up a video today announcing that Realms Of Ancient War is making PSN its Battlefield.
To quote: Hey there, it's Julien from Wizarbox here with word on our new game, Realms of Ancient War.
RAW has been in development for over two years, inspired by our deep love of hack 'n slash games. We've played practically every game in the genre (including some pretty obscure PS2 efforts) to seek out the best ideas from the past.
The rest of our inspiration comes from our designers, who came up with crazy ideas to give our title its own signature fast-and-furious style of action. Every decision was met with one simple question: "Is this a fun idea?"
• Do you want to spawn dozens of huge swords from the ground? Yes!
• Should the screen be covered with hordes of enemies, all hell-bent on the goal of killing you? Oh yes!
• What about taking mind-control of gigantic enemies, turning around and pounding the &@*% out of their minion buddies? Hell, YES!
• Maybe you could ride a flashy pink pony and battle your enemies with a giant toilet brush? Uh... let's forget that idea...
44w ago - Today Communications Manager Nick Clarkson of Team 17 Digital has announced that Worms Revolution will be taking to the Battlefield this October.
To quote: Not many games can claim to have survived as long as Team17's Worms.
Born from a simple idea, Worms first appeared in 1995! Now, 17 years later, Worms Revolution is heading to PlayStation 3. It will be available from the PlayStation Store as of 10th October priced at £9.99/€12.99.
It's a completely new game built around the classic Worms 2D gameplay, but it also boasts a range of new, exciting features. Gamers will notice the game's highly polished visuals but it won't be until the action begins that they'll marvel at new physics objects, dynamic water and an awesome class system.
To introduce the plethora of new features, we've created a series of five developer diaries. Here's Worms Revolution's designer, Kev "Chesh" Carthew to introduce the game and tell us how the series came to be.
And if that grabbed your interest take a look at the second clip below to delve a little deeper into the development process with Ian Lindsey, the game's lead programmer.

76w ago - DICE Junior Product Manager Tommy Rydling has announced alongside a new video trailer that Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand hits PS3 a week early today!
To quote: With the PlayStation Store update later today, you will be able to buy, download and play Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand on PS3.
To celebrate launch day, here is an all-new gameplay trailer showcasing Wake Island running on PlayStation 3 hardware. I hope you like what we have done to this classic Battlefield map, and that you enjoy your one-week PS3 exclusive head start on this expansion pack.
Once you have downloaded Back to Karkand, the four new maps (Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula) will be available in the server browser and in the Quick Match filter settings just like the nine maps from the base game.
There will be servers that mix and match maps from the base game and Back to Karkand, so you will never have to commit to playing either base game or Back to Karkand maps in your gaming session.
That's it for today; keeping it short and sweet so I can go back to chasing my new Assignments. Hope you enjoyed the launch trailer, and hope to see you online. Let us know what you think about Back...

The maps we chose for this expansion pack are all classic fan favorites: Wake Island, Sharqi Peninsula, Gulf of Oman, and Strike at Karkand (from where the expansion pack got its name). These maps are about all-out warfare in a variety of settings and have collectedly been played literally billions of times by our players.
Now, they are due for a reimagining with the power of the Frostbite 2 engine. This allows us do things like take the level of destruction to ridiculous heights. You can...
