Oddball publisher Devolver Digital enriches its portfolio once more with the announcement of Defense Technica to its roster. This shiny tower defense game will arrive on 24 October, 2013 for PC, via Steam and other digital portals.
Aside from sparkly explosions in set pathways, players can also expect dynamic battles and weather effects. Over 40 tower variations are possible, which yields a ton of prompt, judging from the gameplay video. There seems to be a selection between regular guns, flamethrowers, guns and lasers. The goal is to protect a nuclear reactor, though that should be self-explanatory. What else are you going to do in a tower defense game? We also have some screenshots, because we always do.
Publisher Nordic Games has more information regarding Spellforce 2 – Demons of the Past. This content addition in the long-lasting PC game will release on Steam on October 24, 2013 for €19.99.
As previously announced, this chapter will come as a standalone add-on and it will be the final installment of this game. However, Nordic Games has announced that they’re working on making Spellforce 3 a thing; noted as such: “And before someone asks: Yes, we are working on ’3′.“. Demons of the Past will hold more than 50 quests and hold up to 25 hours of new gameplay. Some screenshots depict the breadth of different locations and populace in the game. We’ll post these, along with some art and logos, below.
Online games portal Wargaming has announced a release date for World of Warplanes, to follow up their popular World of Tanks massive multiplayer (MMO) title. Warplanes will descend upon Europe and America on September 26, 2013, though you get it a day early if you’re one of their Eastern European followers. That’s called fan service.
It looks like Wargaming will already have a sizable community to start with, as World of Warplanes accrued 3 million players over their Beta period. Over one hundred airplanes will be available at launch, ranging from countries like the United States, Germany, Russia, Japan and England. An orchestrated cinematic trailer accompanies the release.
If you’ve been longing to bring your childhood memories to current consoles, then you’ll be pleased with the announcement of Hot Wheels: World’s Best Driver by Warner Bros. This racing game is due for release on just about all platforms on September 18, 2013.

It’s being produced by Firebrand Games, which is mostly known for its work on Nintendo DS and 3DS, though its main work does consist of porting race games like these. For instance, its responsible for the similar Ubisoft game Trackmania DS, which also features over the top arcade driving.
Hot Wheels: World’s Best Driver will cost €39.99 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii U, while the 3DS and PC versions will cost €29.99. Would you like a screenshot or two? You got it.
Expansions don’t stop in the world of The Sims 3, which is why EA is preparing two more additions for the game this fall. First, the game will receive a pack called Movie Stuff, then we’ll get Into The Future.
In Movie Stuff, players will be able to branch their story in 3 ways. Themes will vary from a Western vibe, comic book stories or gothic horror settings. Each comes with their own set of goodies, of course. This pack will be available on September 10, 2013. You can see a trailer for the Western stuff below, as well as screenshots down the page.
With Into The Future, The Sims will go on a ride resembling that of The Jetsons, more than anything else. Still, here it will be possible for characters to go forward in time and meet their own ancestors, though this may have consequences for the Sims back home. You don’t need a lesson in ethics though, Mister I-am-my-own-grandpa. We’ll just give you more videos and screenshots below. Also, you can expect this addition to arrive on October 22, 2013. Preorders get you a Quantum Power Pack, whatever that is.
