“Four new DRADIS contacts. They’ve just launched torpedoes. The Cerastes are moving to port to harass the freighter.”

“We’ve got nothing left. Frak! We have to go now. Aim for the abandoned colony.”

“Not yet, Asteria and Pamir are still spooling!”

“We don’t have an option, Helena. Go!”

“Sam!”

“GO!”

“... all units, register jump Tango-Four. Jumping in three, two one…”

 

Attention on deck!

By now I’m sure you’ve all heard the news; Operation Anabasis is coming to all platforms on October 18th.

With the new Anabasis survival mode, new munitions, new maps and missions, there’s a lot to take in! So today, we’re going to take some time to highlight a handful of the new skirmish maps and resource missions coming in the DLC.

 

 

A Whole New World

With the new Environmental Hazards coming in the the free Infinity Update (launches same time as Anabasis on October 18th), it was a great opportunity to create some new battlefields. There are 11 new skirmish maps, available to use in the single-player Skirmish Mode, Multiplayer modes, and also feature during Operation Anabasis.

 

 

Some of the new maps will feature our new environmental hazards, like the turgid cloudbanks of Niflheimr, or the breathtaking anomalies of Scylla & Charybdis. Others will feature man-made hazards, like the Imperial-era Hedgehog minefields, or the satellite strewn wasteland in the aptly named Space Junk.

 

 

 

A Kick In The Logistics

Also featured in the Anabasis DLC are twelve new resource missions. Not only do these resource missions provide new tactical challenges and insight into the lore of the Twelve Colonies, but they also offer a host of new rewards and bonuses for Colonial Fleet.

Do you risk your fleet to save a Quorum trade coordinator’s nephew? You might earn a permanent boost to your income from the grateful colony. Or maybe you get the opportunity to take out a Cylon tylium refinery, which will temporarily slow the FTL cooldown of all Cylon fleets on the table. Sometimes it can be a choice between bettering your coffers, or sabotaging the Cylons for a moment of respite.

 

 

We are really excited for you all to discover the new opportunities, big and small, available in Operation Anabasis and the Infinity Update. This is our biggest release yet, and can’t wait to hear your stories.

Until next time, just hold one for one more minute; home is only a jump away.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #15 'Let's dance!'

Thursday, January 17, 2019

The gym was often empty during this particular shift. Lucinda’s presence in the room was enough to keep the rest of the battered equipment vacant. She played old Tauron music whenever she was here alone; raunchy lyrics from teenage mops of hair and guitars, borne of a time when she was young enough to care about such things. She adjusted her footing, squared up the bag once more, and released one one two, her left foot tapping the floor on both jabs before the cross. The bag wavered dutifully.

Footwork had always been her strong point. No point throwing your hands up if you didn’t have the balance and stamina to match. She’d made some quick cubits back in the academy flooring some of the flyboys. Most of them were dead now.

Command LIVE: The King of the Border is announced

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

The crisis that has enveloped Venezuela since 2013 has reached a quasi-apocalyptic dimension.

The Government of Caracas has accused in several occasions that the reason for this humanitarian catastrophe is the constant interference of the USA and its puppets in the region, willing to stop the glorious Bolivarian Revolution started with Hugo Chavez.

These suspects have been reinforced by the enclosing relationship between Colombia and NATO, culminating in 2015 in a joint military operation against maritime piracy.

Emperor preserve us! The Tyranids are here!

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

War spares no one: Orks, Necrons, Astra Militarum, Adeptus Astartes. All are spilling blood. But no one expected this.

It started as a rumour: xeno test subjects escaping from an Adeptus Mechanicus research facility. Then it turned into something more sinister... word of something lurking in the remote corners of Gladius Prime, ever growing, driven by an insatiable hunger.

Now everything has changed: the Tyranids are here!

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Tyranids Gameplay Mechanics

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

The Tyranids are an extremely original and unique race.

Their playstyle is rather different compared to the other factions: they field large numbers of cannon-fodder infantry which is best employed to cover for very powerful heavy infantry. They have access to highly specialised units (more on them in a units diary later this week) as well as flying monstrous creatures!
