Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II comes to PS5 & PS4 October 28

Developer Infinity Ward has left no stone unturned to create a new heart-pounding experience for players.

Task Force 141’s next global Campaign. Immersive, world-class Multiplayer. An evolved Special Ops experience. All carefully crafted with gameplay and technical innovations that will introduce PlayStation fans to the new era of Call of Duty.

Campaign and Special Ops 

Task Force 141 faces its greatest threat yet — a newly aligned menace with deep, yet unknown, connections.

In a direct sequel to Modern Warfare (2019), familiar heroes return and new allies are formed as the globe-trotting operation spans Europe, Asia, and the Americas..

This Campaign is set to be an incredible experience on numerous levels: offshore sieges with underwater combat, all-out explosive assaults from 30,000 feet above enemy strongholds, and high-stakes, low-profile stealth missions.

Deploying alongside you are iconic squadmates: Team leader Captain John Price; seasoned sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick; the lone wolf himself, fan-favorite Simon “Ghost” Riley; fearless Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish; as well as the newest team member, Colonel Alejandro Vargas, an incorruptible Tier 1 Operator and member of the Mexican Special Forces.

After the Campaign, PlayStation players can join up with their duo for an evolved Special Ops experience, the tactical co-op mode that advances your team-building skills and sets the table for the near endless hours of gameplay you can experience in Multiplayer.

Multiplayer: Next Generation Innovations

Those who drop into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Multiplayer at launch will be the first to try out and level up multiple base weapons, explore a wide range of maps and modes, meet an international cast of Operators, and mor

A new look for Bend Studio’s future, and a look back at its past

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

With 29 years of experience in game development, Bend Studio has had a rich legacy in video games. From the iconic Syphon Filter series to Resistance: Retribution, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Days Gone, we strive to provide our players with high-quality experiences that create a lasting impact. As we reflect on our past and look toward the future, we are thrilled to unveil the new Bend Studio logo to you all.

“The wordmark and symbol were designed to be graphic and bold, so that we utilize numerous variations in colorways and stylised treatments of the symbol (exampled below), while still maintaining an identifiable brand identity.  Because the Bend Studio logo is split into a symbol and a workmark, we have more flexibility with the symbol.” – Shay Casey

Our new Bend Studio logo represents an abstract and modern interpretation of the studio’s history, location, and lifestyle. Located at the base of the beautiful Cascade Mountains in Central Oregon, Bend provides us with a unique lifestyle where we can work in tech, but live life analog. After a day in the office, we like to plug into adventure and use our extra life to shred the slopes at Mt. Bachelor, drag a line in the Deschutes River, or take a long hike in the wild.

“We set out to create a new identity that would be cutting-edge, abstract, and minimalist. It should feature simple, high-tech geometry but also represent the constant motion of creativity. Ideally it would be the kind of logo that is recognizable to gamers on the street without the need for a wordmark. Over time it should be easily identified as a symbol of gaming just like a certain swoosh is of sportswear.

With those objectives in mind, we are illustrating Bend Studio’s technical innovation with a forward directional look. The letterforms are cut to run parallel to the leading edge of the outer symbol triangle but still maintain the stability of our mid-weight non-italicized font. The Cascade icon in the center of the symbol is an abstract representation of the many mountain peaks that are the center of our lives in Central Oregon and define our skyline. Additionally, there is a small break in the “I” that represents one of the lumber mill smokestacks that speaks to Bend’s history as a logging town before its current existence as an outdoor enthusiast destination.”

“The new logo allows us to be creative with stylised treatments. We had a lot of fun concepting the above.” – Shay Casey

1993: Origins of Bend Studio

Bend Studio traces its origins to 1993, under the name of Blank, Berlyn and Co. The company released several puzzle games for the Apple Newton, including Columbo’s Mystery Capers, Dell Crossword Puzzles, Motil, and Notion (List Maker). Shortly after, we hired Christopher Reese, the current Studio Head at Bend Studio, who helped release the first of a series of sports games, starting with Live Action Football in 1993 on PC. Following these releases, the company had the ambition to evolve and push into the w

What are the Calumniation Games?

Calumniate (verb): to utter maliciously false statements, charges, or imputations about.

ca·​lum·​ni·​ate | kə-ˈləm-nē-ˌāt

Yurukill: The Calumniation Games centers around Sengoku Shunju, a man who wakes up in a prison cell with no recollection of how he got there. A masked woman named Binko suddenly appears before him and explains the situation at hand: “Prisoner, Sengoku Shunju: convicted of murder! He’s serving a 999 year sentence! That’s far and away the longest sentence out of all our Prisoners!” 

You must survive the various “attractions” in a certain “amusement park.” If you succeed, your crimes will be pardoned.

“No, you’ve got it all wrong, I’ve been falsely accused! I’m innocent!”

Sengoku asserts that he is innocent of the crimes he’s accused of, but what complicates matters is the appearance of the victim of one of his alleged crimes: a woman named Rina Azami.

“Sengoku Shunju. A name I will never forget. You killed my entire family. For that, I will never forgive you.”

Sengoku is charged with arson and murder—for the death of 21 people by immolation, including Rina’s family. And now he finds himself in Yurukill Land, the aforementioned ‘amusement park’ where accused criminals (Prisoners) and the victims of their crimes (Executioners) must pair up to face its twisted attractions and trials.

Besides Sengoku, there are four other groups of Prisoners and their respective Executioners who find themselves in Yurukill Land: the Death Dealing Duo, the Crafty Killers, the Sly

Drop into Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 3 Season 3: Vibin’, live today

Have fun(gi)

A new biome called Reality Falls has formed, featuring the freshly bloomed Reality Tree.This lush forest boasts bouncy mushrooms, beauteous trees, and a cavern beneath its waterfalls containing loot.

Don’t forget to harvest

Sprouting from the Reality Tree are the Reality Seed Pods. Plant these seeds to grow a Reality Sapling — which grows in the same place match to match. Be sure to return to these planted Saplings as they bear better loot each time you weed them, even up to Mythic quality. Open the Map page to see your sapling’s status, including when it’s time to weed it again.

Have a sapling already planted? Throw a Reality Seed to teleport the sapling to where it lands! When your sapling eventually wilts away, it’ll leave behind a Reality Seed for you to plant.

Be a High Roller

Ballers have returned to the Island. To keep the good times rolling, ride a Baller on the newly-constructed (and totally safe) Screwballer coaster.

The Baller’s received some updates since it was last on the Island. It’s got improved Health, it floats on water, and it now runs on Battery charge. Board a new Baller if your current one runs out of juice.

Take a wildlife ride

The high-speed fun doesn’t end with Ballers. Track down a wild boar or wolf, jump on its back, then prepare for a wild ride. Taking enemy fire? No worries! Don your weapons while riding for mounted combat.
