Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????

[​IMG]

What an intriguing discovery survivors, what could this be?

Aberration Countdown Is On!

[​IMG]

The wait is almost over for ARK: Aberration which launches on December 12th on all platforms starting at 12pm PST / 3pm EST / 8pm UTC.

In “ARK: Aberration” Survivors will find themselves waking up on a derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, where they will face exotic new challenges unlike anything before: extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, cave dwellings, charge-batteries, and far more, along with a stable of extraordinary new creatures await within the mysterious depths. But beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids which have evolved into vicious light-hating monstrosities! You’ll uncover the ultimate secrets of the ARKs, and discover what the future holds in store for those strong and clever enough to survive!

To help ease the pain of waiting over the next few days, feast your ears on Aberration's theme song, created by Gareth Coker.

New Skins from Extra Life!...
Christmas is coming early for Factorio fans. We have a lot of exciting things to show you and announce this week, so hold on tight.
The artillery train
Some of you might remember we said there is an artillery train planned, well we now have a playable version of it, so we can show it to you today. The artillery train (or more correctly, the artillery wagon) is an end-game wagon you can add to a train. It fires artillery shells over large distances, either automatically at nearby bases, or at manually designated targets.

In automatic mode, when the train isn't moving, the artillery wagon will automatically scan for enemy buildings (biter nests and worms) and shoot at them. Manually designating targets is very simple, you click on the ground (or on the map or zoomed map) using a special targeting item. For each click, an artillery wagon in range will fire once at the target.

Firing at the biters from far away isn't all consequence free, as they will come running to your train, so you will have to make sure there are some defences nearby, or are prepared for a quick getaway.

Currently it has a range of 7 chunks (224 tiles) when firing automatically, and a range of 17.5 chunks (560 tiles) when firing manually. The main reason for this range difference is to incentivize players to use manual mode, since it is quite a fun way to use the artillery wagons, and it gives the satisfaction of blowing up biter nests remotely.

Albert is working hard to finish the graphics, but...
If you think that we are done with new releases for our fans this year, rejoice, because the hype train is not slowing down! The Special Transport DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is now in the final testing phase. In our humble opinion, it looks pretty promising so far!

We feel that it's the right time to tease you a little bit with its promo trailer:

We hope that the weekend ahead - that we plan to spend on re-testing and double-checking everything - won't shatter our confidence and that we'll be able to announce the Special Transport DLC's release date next week. Stay tuned!​

Only a few days have passed since we released the latest ETS2 map expansion - Italia. The fan community's response has been overwhelmingly positive, we're so happy and honored by your voice of support! There were still some bugs reported, and we are working on a quick update of the game and the DLC for next week.

For a very brief moment in time, for some two or three hours on Tuesday evening, our humble map DLC has enjoyed its moment of glory at the very top of Global Top Sellers on Steam. This is a major accomplishment and an indication of the decication and strength of our fantastic player community. Not many full-priced games can do it, especially now in the era of total dominance of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in the chart.

Quite a lot of players and fellow truckers have also celebrated the release their own way - with "First Looks" or "Let's Play" videos for their channels. We think it may be of interest for you if we list some notable videos here...
