JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Deep Rock Galactic Is Coming To Steam Early Access And Xbox Game Preview On February 28



Sharpen Your Pickaxes! Trim Your Beards! Deep Rock Galactic Is Coming To Steam Early Access And Xbox Game Preview On February 28!

From the publisher that brought you Goat Simulator, comes a new explosive co-op space-mining shooter developed by Ghost Ship Games – landing on Xbox and PC this month.

SKÖVDE, Sweden - Feb. 14, 2018 - Deep Rock Galactic enforcers Coffee Stain Publishing and Ghost Ship Games are calling on all dwarves across the globe to join the Deep Rock initiative in its widest recruitment drive yet! Starting on February 28, 2018, any hardy dwarf with a taste for adventure and a proficiency in firearms can join their most ambitious mining operation to date when Deep Rock Galactic lands on Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview.

Watch the trailer for Deep Rock Galactic here: https://youtu.be/llqM5lLVnYg


Enlisted dwarves will be paired with up to three like-minded brethren and sent on missions to the most hostile planet ever discovered, Hoxxes IV, to mine precious gems and metals. Cooperation is essential to your success and, as an interplanetary mining conglomerate, Deep Rock Galactic depends on its employees to take care of each other.

Players take up arms as one of four classes of badass dwarven miners, each with their own invaluable set of skills and gear. The Driller, the Engineer, the Scout and the Gunner must work together to survive a relentless onslaught of ravenous aliens and escape the procedurally generated caves with their bounty intact.

“With Deep Rock Galactic, we wanted to create a true co-op experience where teamwork really matters. We're mixing the traditional co-op shooter with all the goodness of huge procedural levels, lots of exploration and mining and all the personality of fantasy dwarves – but in a sci-fi setting,” says Mikkel Martin Pedersen, Game Director/Co-Founder of Ghost Ship Games.

Deep Rock Galactic first began recruiting brave space mining dwarves when it enter Closed Alpha on Steam in December 2016. Since then, more than ten thousand test-subjects have played the ever-improving Closed-Alpha builds and delivered invaluable feedback to the team. By popular demand, the team have thus far added upgrades, drones, vanity items, a mini-boss, biomes and refrained from fixing the broken barrel physics!

“Moving into Early Access and Game Preview, we're really excited to keep developing the game with the help of our awesome community. At launch, 7 unique regions of Planet Hoxxes will be ready to explore, mine and get lost in, but really this is just the beginning and Hoxxes has only just begun giving up her secrets. We have SO many more ideas and can't wait to start implementing them all,” said Søren Lundgaard, CEO/Co-Founder of Ghost Ship Games.
