If you havent heard of Rebellion then you should have. The distinctly British development house has a nice line in atmospheric First Person Shooters, which they have been producing for longer than many people, with Alien Vs. Predator games being their first foray into the genre. They also own all the rights to legendary British comic book 2000AD and all its characters, and having been responsible for the Judge Dredd vs. Judge Death game are currently working on a Rogue Trooper title. Exciting as that might be, were here to talk about Sniper Elite. Dont be disappointed that its yet another World War II shooting game, either, because its scripted just a little bit more cleverly than the average me too rifle-em-up. The game is set right at the very end of the war in Europe, and centres on the battle for Berlin between the vengeful Russians and the teetering Nazis. You dont play for either side either, instead stepping into the boots of an American sniper. And as youll be aware if you know much about the end of the second World War in Europe, the Americans were very much in two minds as to whether they should keep going and take on the Soviets too, after it was clear they had the Germans licked. Thats precisely the theme of this game, and your Secret Service overlords have sent you in to put a stop to a Soviet plot to take advantage of the chaos and become a nuclear power. As you might have inferred from the title, youre a sniper. The game is played out from both 3rd and 1st person perspectives, across a lovingly crafted recreation of war-torn Berlin. Pick your way through the environments, well aware that this is one place that nobody will welcome you. Play through 25 challenging missions taking out your assigned targets. Naturally the game has multiplayer online modes available. Equally welcome is the co-operative mode for two players. If youre only going to play one more WWII FPS, Sniper Elite makes a pretty strong candidate.

For the sequel of the popular The Guild series, Nordic Games, holder of rights and publisher of the series, was able to hire the Canadian developer GolemLabs in 2014. GolemLabs has a lot of experience with strategy games and artificial intelligence, as they developed the renown Superpower 2. The Guild 3 makes use of the very powerful Darksiders engine.Features:SandboxForge your dynasty and create your own ?goal? of the game: become sovereign (with ?good? or ?evil? behaviour), dominate the city or the whole scenario (economically, politically) or annihilate all of your competitors.ReplayabilityAI makes every scenario look, feel, and play differently, as the need and desire based system influences the AI behaviour in a (seemingly) random way.Random-based global events, e.g. famine, plagues, war, town fires.Actions from other players (or from yourself) like revolts in neighbourhoods, trade embargos and other economic measures.AI SystemThe EHE (Evolutive Human Emulator), the new AI system in the Guild 3, is adaptive, dependent on a 6 trait-system, and with said AI, behavioural patterns evolve because of its inherent ability to adapt to any given need and desire system. The 6 defining traits or characteristics of our agents (including groups like societies, neighbourhoods, etc. that come to 'think' as a whole), are separated into 3 groups of opposing pairs:1. Construction ? Destruction2. Ego ? Community3. Wealth ? PowerThe EHE was developed for large-scale, multi-agent dynamic systems. The goal was to make a system that would learn from experience and modify its behaviour according to a changing dataset and changing actions by the player.The EHE learns by experience and saves its knowledge, so the more you play, the better it?s suited to play against you.Editor- Will be available at launch to create and share maps with the community, and select from an ever-growing library of scenarios.- Easy to use modding kit in ?sandbox-style?.Multiplayer with up to 16 Players- The Guild 3 has its custom multiplayer integrated and can connect to other The Guild 3 players, no matter where they bought the game.

Some of them, like the Freemasons or the Smithsguild, are publicly known, others, such as the Guild of Thieves or the Warlocks? Circle, are kept secret.City DistrictsNew neighbourhoods are being created within a city through political intervention/general rise in population, or similar environmental circumstances.EconomyAfter you have established your
