Arma3 news:

We're approaching the eight years since hardcore military simulation game Arma III launched on PC, and it's still getting new content to fuel player's war game fantasies. The latest DLC pack is called S.O.G. Prairie Fire, and it will be set during the Vietnam War. It will feature a brand new 300 km2 map, four factions, and all of the weapons and vehicles you could want to fill this sandbox shooter. Prairie Fire is a 'creator' DLC - a label publisher Bohemia Interactive is using to promote add-on packs created by third-party studios - in this case, Savage Game Design. Previous entries under this label have included 2019's Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany, and CSLA Iron Curtain which is due out sometime this year. These can be thought of as a step above paid mod projects, an example of which would be what Firaxis did when they hired Long War Studios (the creators of the excellent XCOM mod The Long War) to make Long War 2 specifically for the launch of XCOM 2 back in 2016.

Prairie Fire. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/2799889/2a4439f82ebdd262ef81bae6c3f4c7ffda535318.jpg S.O.G. Prairie Fire will transport you back to the Vietnam War and deliver a thrilling and historic military sandbox experience on a scale not seen before in a video game. The S.O.G. Prairie Fire DLC is scheduled for release on Steam in the second quarter (Q2) of this year (2021) and will be priced at $22.99 USD (€22.99 EUR / £19.99 GBP). You can already add the Creator DLC to your wishlist by visiting its Steam store page. The name S.O.G. Prairie Fire refers to the "Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group" (MACV-SOG), which was a United States Special Forces unit established in 1964 to conduct covert operations in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. This task force will play a central role in the DLC's multiplayer co-op campaign. To portray the soldiers' experiences in a more accurate manner, Savage Game Design has been closely collaborating with US Special Forces veterans who served in MACV-SOG until it was deactivated in 1972, as well as Vietnamese advisors. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/2799889/d01447a658ebfcb4232cb26dd7b04d6b37db0c66.jpg Key features of the S.O.G. Prairie Fire Creator DLC include: Cam Lao Nam Terrain - Explore a unique 300 km2 terrain representing the Vietnam War's entire Area of Operations, including the Ho Chi Minh Trail which ran from North Vietnam through neighboring Laos and Cambodia to South Vietnam. 4 Factions - Fight as the United States Army (including the covert MACV-SOG Special Forces unit), Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) or Viet Cong.

Military simulator game Arma 3 is doing something a bit different with its newest piece of DLC. Instead of driving around in a new tank or helicopter, this pack involves a trip to the museum. That's right: the Art of War Charity Pack adds a virtual exhibition of Arma community members' best artwork, and there's even a new mission to go along with it. The Arma 3 Art of War Charity Pack includes a new single-player scenario that developer Bohemia Interactive says showcases "international humanitarian law in action" as you help protect a "valuable work of art". There's some new formal attire included, such as a suit (you can't show up at a fine arts museum dressed in fatigues, after all) and faction-specific parade dress uniforms and a parade cap. The DLC also includes a range of civilian backpacks. The DLC itself is available at three price points. While the lowest is $1.99 USD / £1.99, you can also choose to pay $4.99 / £4.99 or $9.99 / £9.99. All proceeds benefit the International Committee of the Red Cross, and so you can think of the purchase as a donation to the organisation. All three price tiers include the same content.

Rust news:

The worlds of Rust and horror game Dying Light have collided. A crossover event has come to Techland's survival-horror game, bringing a bunch of new in-game items and challenges based on Facepunch Studios' multiplayer survival game on PC. The Dying Light x Rust crossover event is now live for players on our home platform and runs for a limited period of time, until 6pm UK / 1pm ET / 10am PT on April 26. All Dying Light players will get access to a free Rust-themed bundle as part of the crossover, which brings three weapons based on the multiplayer game: an assault rifle, custom SMG, and salvaged cleaver. Completing research bounties locally by scooping up resources will let you earn gold blueprint upgrades for the Rust-style weapons. The bundle also includes some skins for your player character and buggy inspired by Facepunch's title. Alongside these, the event challenges Dying Light players around the world to collaborate in taking out two new Rais' outposts and bandits, as well as finding some air drops in its world to earn themselves access to gold fire, gold freezing, and gold poison C4 dockets.

The combination everybody needed! See what happens when two worlds of survival are brought together and meet in the midst of a zombie apocalypse! Don’t worry, though, we won’t leave you without proper equipment. Grab the free Rust DLC to get a set of unique items that will help you make it through the dangers of the unforgiving world. When your life’s at stake, there’s only one thing you can do—grab whatever you find and use it to your advantage. Like that Heavy Plate outfit that’s apparently all the rage and will show everyone around how inventive you are. Or the Salvaged Cleaver with which you’ll chop both zombies and bandits as if they were veggies (quick disclaimer: do NOT eat the zombies! Or the bandits!). Prefer fighting from a distance? Then shoot your enemies with the Custom SMG or the Rust Assault Rifle, the latest advance in unconventional weapon-making. And for the final piece of your survivor’s kit—the new buggy, Rust Bucket—the capstone of your engineering skills. You can be sure it’ll put to shame all who have ever doubted your talent as well as remind you that nothing is impossible. Even building a car in the middle of a post-apocalyptic wilderness. Now, let’s put all that equipment to good use and see just how long you can survive against flesh-hungry zombies and ruthless bandits. What’s more, the scientists from Rust must’ve heard about the Harran virus and have come to investigate the deadly pathogen. Surprise them with your amazing parkour skills and show them what you’ve learned from years of fighting the infected. They’re not the only enemies you’ll encounter, though. In both the Slums and the Old Town, you’ll find outposts full of Rais’ bandits. They’re dangerous places, but you’ve been to such by now, haven’t you? Crash through the front door and wreak havoc among the enemy lines or take them silently, through stealth. They won’t know what hit them, and you’ll leave with powerful elemental C4 explosives. You’ll use them better anyway, right? Still, surviving in Harran may prove harder than expected—but you already know that. Fortunately, you’re a skilled inventor and a full-fledged survivor. Who better to build something out of nothing than you? With the right materials, you’ll be able to research and craft improved versions of your weapons. Look for the necessary resources and let ’em see how deadly scrap can become in the right hands. The bundle contains: Heavy Plate outfit Buggy skin—Rust Bucket Short axe—Salvaged Cleaver SMG—Custom SMG Assault rifle—Rust Assault Rifle Global goal: Hunt down bandits (1 000 000). Reward: A docket for the C4 Elemental Variation Blueprints Local goals: Research bounties: Collect Scrap (30) and Plastic Tubes (2) Reward: Gold Rust Assault Rifle Blueprint Collect Scrap (20) and Nails (10) Reward: Gold Rust Custom SMG Blueprint Collect Scrap (10) and Tin Cans (5) Reward: Gold Rust Salvaged Cleaver Blueprint Raiding bounties: Find and raid Rais' Bandit Outpost in the Slums Reward: Elemental C4 B...
The April update for survival game Rust is on its way, and it's bringing a basket full of joy and sunshine with it. Well, maybe not those things specifically, but there's plenty to look forward to in this month's patch, including a brand new gesture system. The gesture system uses a pop-up wheel to give you a selection of emotes to use at just about any point in the game. Developer Facepunch says they've all been designed to be used in first-person perspective, and that you'll see a nice animation from that viewpoint when you wave or point at someone. The gestures can also be cancelled at any point, with a tiny time delay of about 0.2 seconds before you can fire your weapon again. "Feel free to wave at your victim when roof camping", Facepunch suggests. The April update also adds poker tables to Bandit Town, which Facepunch says completes work on overhauling the casino barge that began in March. Tables support 2-6 players, and you'll need to put up 100 scrap to sit down. Once you're in, it's Texas Hold 'Em rules all around, and you'll have a dedicated chat window for the table if you feel like talking a bit of smack to your fellow gamblers.

Gestures You can now express yourself with a new selection of gestures, available to everyone in a simple popup menu during gameplay. Just press B (by default) to open the menu and look at your options. These new gestures have been built to be used in first person, so you get nicely animated hand movements instead of just seeing your shadow gesture. This new system for gestures is a bit more flexible than the old system, and it has already supports some future features like looping animations and third person gestures. A core goal of this new gesture system was reducing as much risk as possible when using them during tense gameplay. Gestures will now no longer unequip your weapon and can be cancelled at any point, with a small (~0.2s) delay before your weapon is fireable again. Feel free to wave at your victims when roof camping! Fun fact: these gestures are all left-handed because they were initially meant to be used while holding the weapon at the same time (which is generally in the right hand), however we felt it limited our future options for gestures - clapping with one hand is tricky. As we felt that the quality of the legacy gestures weren't up to scratch compared to these new animations, we've made the decision to remove support for playing the old gestures. You can however still bind these new gestures using the same commands/keybinds if you don't want to use the gesture wheel. Poker Tables We've added Poker Tables to Bandit Town this month, completing our casino barge overhaul that we started last month. You'll find a variety of tables supporting anywhere from two to six players. Deposit at least 100 scrap to the storage at your seat to get started. Once you're in a game, use the button prompts on the right of the screen to play. Standard Texas Hold 'Em rules apply. Be sure to take your winnings at the end of your session! While in a poker game you'll have access to a poker chat window for you to chat with your fellow players, and you can also use your mic. Server Optimizations We've made a variety of optimisations on the server to improve performance when lots of players are online: Floating junkpiles will no longer process buoyancy if no players are nearby Better balanced server load when lots of turrets are scanning for targets Upgraded SQLite and removed lots of GC allocations in the connector code Update Facepunch.Steamworks with buffer pooling for swnet (Steam Networking only) Rewrite NetWrite to have less CPU overhead Add caching to TechTreeData since it could cause short CPU spikes on ...
Way back in 2013, when Rust was only just hitting Steam Early Access, the survival game's first trailer gave us a taste of what a first day in its wild world might look like. Suitably called the 'Rust: First Day' trailer, it's a pretty rough-n'-ready compilation of its different gameplay features - and, nearly eight years on, one fan has decided to lovingly recreate it, frame-by-frame. Rust fan TheManFrom_Mars (Square Earth, on YouTube) has posted his creation on the multiplayer game's subreddit, explaining that, following a recent thread he posted about the original trailer, he was inspired to make an updated version of the clip, reflecting where Rust's at now. He says that his version is "a personal homage that decided to make", and that he's "tried to keep it as close to the original as can". And, as you can see in the below clips - original and remake - the Rust fan's recreation is spot-on. Using the same tune and kicking off with the same sounds of feet trampling through dirt, the fan trailer matches up every shot. Read the rest of the story...

Facepunch Studios has confirmed that Rust player data has been lost following a fire at OVH Datacenter. The studio took to Twitter several hours ago to inform people that 25 of its EU servers were offline due to the blaze at its building in the early hours of the morning. "Unfortunately, the fire destroyed SBG-2 building," the studio tweets. "We're expecting a large amount of data loss across the affected servers." Facepunch Studios goes on to issue an update confirming a total loss of the affected EU servers during the blaze. The developer is now exploring ways to replace those servers and has confirmed that it can't restore the data that's been lost. OVH founder Octave Klaba confirms on Twitter that everyone is safe, though part of another building was damaged alongside SBG-2. He also assures followers that the fire has been brought under control. Over the next two weeks, the company plans to start restoring what was lost to the fire. Read the rest of the story...

UPDATE 1.30pm UK: Rust developer Facepunch has released a fresh update on the game's EU servers following last night's devastating fire - and it's bad news. "We've confirmed a total loss of the affected EU servers during the OVH data centre fire," Facepunch wrote. "We're now exploring replacing the affected servers. Data will be unable to be restored." Earlier today, Facepunch said 25 EU servers had been lost. In general, Rust wipes player progress every month, but it's unclear how many of these servers hosted community-run servers with their own rules. Read more
Rust and developer Facepunch Studios have experienced a catastrophic loss that extends to European players this week. A data center containing numerous servers for the game, as well as player save data, recently caught fire and was unable to be contained. The damage was irreparable and 25 Rust EU servers were caught up in the blaze. The issue took place at an OVH Cloud data center building late on March 9, as reported by OVH CEO Octave Klaba (thanks Eurogamer). Reportedly, firefighters were called to the scene, but could not control the fire as it overtook the building. Fortunately, all staff were safely evacuated from the building and no lives were lost in the incident. However, the building was unable to be saved and all servers inside were destroyed. As the incident took place, Rust developer Facepunch Studios reported being affected. While initial announcements remained a touch hazy about exactly what was lost, it wasn’t long after that Facepunch concluded the true extent of the damage, revealing that 25 EU game servers had been lost along with the player data they contained. Update: We've confirmed a total loss of the affected EU servers during the OVH data centre fire. We're now exploring replacing the affected servers. Data will be unable to be restored. — Rust (@playrust) March 10, 2021 It’s a pretty severe loss to say the least and leaves a lot of players with a lot of work in the game back at square one. Being the survival game that it is, building oneself up in Rust can take a long amount of time. The game hasn’t been without fundamental issues over the years, but generally speaking, it still has an enormous player base across various platforms of faithful players who have poured numerous hours into it. Unfortunately, it seems a large chunk of those players have no choice but to start over. The silver lining here is that no lives were lost in the incident. Facepunch Studios will be looking into replacements for the affected studios immediately. If there are any updates in information on this story, you’ll find them here at Shacknews.
This month we've added an underground transit system, slot machines, a new round of Twitch drops and more improvements and fixes. Rail Network You'll now find train entrances scattered across the world, typically you'll find entrances next to existing monuments. Upon the first inspection, they may not appear to be anything special but after venturing inside deep below the terrain, you'll now find a vast rail network with drivable workcarts. When entering the train entrances you'll notice the huge spiral staircases penetrating deep into the terrain, central to the stairs you'll find a much quicker, but perhaps less safe elevator shaft. Everything in Rust wants you dead, these tunnels are no exception. Upon reaching the bottom of the shafts you'll encounter some not so friendly tunnel dwellers. From this point forward you'll likely to encounter many more dwellers if you decide to continue exploring. With risk comes reward, while the dwellers may be unwelcoming the loot they protect could well worth the risk. After exploring the shafts and tunnels you'll finally be standing at the rail platform. On each platform, you'll encounter more dwellers but increasingly better loot. At the end of each platform, you'll find a driveable workcart. Consider this a first pass of a new dungeon system. Everything here is procedurally generated and we plan to add new track segments, bespoke entrances at each monument, puzzles, new NPCs, and eventually use this system to procedurally generate the cave network. Workcarts Each station of the Freight Transit Line will have two workcarts facing opposite directions. Running on Low Grade Fuel, these can be used to rapidly traverse the map. There are 6 throttle settings (3 forward and 3 reverse) and the vehicle will remain in operation even after you depart the cabin. You may also encounter NPC barricades deep in the tunnel system. Be sure to slow down when approaching as hitting barricades or other work carts at high speeds will damage your workcart. Don't worry though, when a collision is imminent, a proximity alarm will sound and you can adjust the throttle accordingly. Barricades can be broken through without damage to your cart if approached at low speed. If you encounter a track junction, you can use your left or right strafe key to choose which track to follow. Lastly, damage will slow the speed of a workcart and it can be repaired with a hammer for metal fragments. Slot Machines Test your luck with 3 new Slot Machines in the gambli...
Rust's March update lands soon - naturally, it is March after all - and Facepunch has provided an early look at what to expect. The heart of this update is a new underground rail network, which also brings us new features like workcarts and tunnel dwellers. If that's not enough, you're also getting slot machines you can use to gamble your scrap away. The rail network will introduce train entrances to major landmarks including the Launch Site or Military Tunnels, which you'll be able to easily locate on the map. Those'll lead you into the tunnels that house the rail system. You will find valuable loot down here, of course, but it will be protected by a population of angry tunnel dwellers. You'll also find two drivable workcarts at each station. Top them off with basic fuel and you can use them to travel along the tracks, and you'll be able to repair them if they take damage - which they probably will, since you can ram other carts that get in your way.
