The wait is over as Wargaming today announced World of Warships has launched its Open Beta. With the Closed Beta concluded, which surpassed over 410,000 prospective captains, the floodgates are open to all who are ready to command the most iconic vessels from the mid-century in intense naval battles.

“World of Warships’ Closed Beta was incredibly successful, surpassing even our high expectations,” said Daniil Volkov, World of Warships Development Director. “We saw nearly half a million players spending an average of two hours in-game every day. From the positive and enthusiastic feedback we received, we are pleased to now welcome even more players into the Open Beta and can’t wait to hear their thoughts about the game. We believe that World of Warships has a very bright future ahead and is a fantastic addition to our famed series.”

The Open Beta launches with over 80 warships from America and Japan and 10 original maps to participate in thrilling 12v12 matches. Players will shape the fight by harnessing the power of mighty battleships, swift destroyers, tactical aircraft carriers or versatile cruisers. Whether it is the fierce competition of PvP combat or the action-packed experience of PvE mode, commanders will take the helm, join forces with other players and sink the competition across the high seas.

Open Beta also brings new additions to the World of Warships experience. With the inclusion of Soviet and UK nations, the finest vessels that Britain and the USSR built will be joining the fleet. For the first time ever, World of Warships introduces a robust signal flag customization system. Earned in battle as achievements and applied to vessels to enhance performance, the signal flags in-game are not only cosmetic but also functional. Signal flags will display a player’s prowess on the water while providing buffs and advantages, such as giving extra credits for a battle, increasing the number of experience points gained in combat, improving the speed of the vessel, and more!

As the Open Beta commences, all purchased pre-order packages are credited to players. Closed Beta testers who used their bundles during the previous testing phase are credited them once again.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Behind the Scenes http://gamehaunt.com/tony-hawks-pro-skater-5-behind-the-scenes/ http://gamehaunt.com/tony-hawks-pro-skater-5-behind-the-scenes/#comments Thu, 25 Jun 2015 09:24:06 +0000 http://gamehaunt.com/?p=8323 Today Activision has shared a new behind the scenes trailer for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 that includes behind-the-scenes footage and interviews from developer Robomodo, as well as interviews with Tony Hawk and other in-game pros.

Today Activision has shared a new behind the scenes trailer for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 that includes behind-the-scenes footage and interviews from developer Robomodo, as well as interviews with Tony Hawk and other in-game pros. It’s been 13 years since the release of THPS4, so these participants in THPS5 took some time to reflect on the franchise’s impact on their lives and what is motivating development today.

The price and release date for the next-gen versions of the game have also been confirmed: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is coming to PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, on September 29, 2015. For the Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 versions, confirmation of exact release dates will follow, but are anticipated to release prior to the end of the year.

In addition, Activision announced that GAME’s pre-order program for the game is now live. It’s a collection of digital content inspired by the decade when Tony Hawk forged his legend – the 1980’s. Aptly named the Totally Rad 80’s Pack, and it includes the following in-game items: 80’s Tony Hawk Character Skin (skate as Tony Hawk from circa 1986 in all modes), 80’s Inspired Birdhouse board, and an Anti-Gravity Board. That’s right, float all over the place, shredding obstacles futuristically!

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 rekindles the signature style of classic Pro Skater games in a brand-new set of levels with the same renowned focus on daring objectives, fine-tuned controls – including manuals and reverts – for endless shredding and high-score tricks.

On PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, players will enjoy frictionless online multiplayer, letting them drop in and out of online skate sessions with over 20 friends and challengers at one time. Complete missions, unlock new content and level up online or offline, or go head-to-head on the fly against all takers in competitive matches. Players can also build their own skateparks to share with the community.

With the fast-paced life that you’re living like everyone else, it’s expected that you’d be worried about a lot of a lot of things that you may not have time for, such as:

  • How you’d buy your favorite artists’ newest digital releases;
  • How you’d bring books with you on the go;
  • How you’d get to know the latest top-of-the-line games;
  • How you’d make sure that you eat at the right times—and you get sumptuous, appetizing dishes conveniently, and most importantly;
  • How you’d get to keep you and your family safe!

You know, it’s almost impossible that you get to stay home all day, or that you have all the time in the world to do what you want to do, and what you have to do—but guess what? #SmartLife will make that easy for you!

With #SmartLife, you’d get to live a life full of convenience, entertainment, and peace of mind—all in the tips of your fingers!

Smart Life

Convenience Everywhere

What is it that you’re doing in life?

Well, whatever it is, it probably requires you to break barriers, and act fast without wasting time. And that’s why you need apps that would help you get to that appointment in time, and make sure you have something great to eat after.

That’s why there are apps such as:

  • Uber, Waze, MMDA, and Easy Taxi for your transportation needs;
  • FoodPanda, Looloo, and Zomato, to curb your appetite;
  • ClicktheCity, to know what’s hip and happening in the metro, and;

Simply stick, tap, and shop—and you’re good to go!

Basically, it’s like having two heads working to make sure that all goes well in your day! Wow!

Entertainment Everywhere

Apart from having a busy life, it’s also important to give yourself the chance to relax and have fun—and that’s why #SmartLife offers the best Entertainment Apps! You’d get:

Peace of Mind Everywhere

And you know the best thing that #SmartLife could give you?

Why, peace of mind, of course!

When you’re away from home, you tend to wonder how your family is doing. You think about going home early just so you could be with them.

But what if you can be with your family even if you’re not home?

#SmartLife brings you Fam Cam—your own security system!

With Fam Cam, you’d have a private camera installed at home—so you can monitor how your family is doing and what the state of your house is—while you’re away from home!

Now, you no longer have to worry about what’s going on at home because you can use your mobile device to see what Fam Cam is recording. No more missing any precious activity, and no more having to worry about how your family is doing—so now, you can focus on work even more!

Have you been dreaming of playing one of the most popular games on an equally popular game console? Surely, you have heard that a lot of people are raving about the incoming games and how the pre-orders are piling up and increasing as the days go on.

But how can you join the bandwagon if you don’t have a game console of your own? Saving up your allowance or the spare money from your salary may be the answer but it will take you a long time for sure. Borrowing your friend’s game console can also be the answer but how many days can you borrow it? One day? Two days? That’s not enough, right?

So why don’t you test your luck and who knows, maybe you’ll be the lucky winner of a brand-new Xbox One from GameHaunt & IEEE!

Yes, you read that right — that’s a brand-new, shining Xbox One for you! The contest will run from June 15 to July 26 so don’t miss your chance to participate!

How can you enter the giveaway? It’s as easy as pie.

All you need to do is just visit IEEE’s Historic Gaming Timeline [HERE] . You would need to choose to engage with the timeline via ranking content. After choosing this, the system will ask you to submit your email address.

Once your name’s chosen as the winner, IEEE will post your name and will contact you using the email address you provided.

There are also some website visitors who want to explore the timeline but do not want to enter the giveaway so entering the email address is an option.

Once you got the URL, you can then interact and explore the timeline content by just clicking on the console generations. Whenever you click on a specific console, different contents will pop up, such as media content, copy content, rankings engagement content, etc.

The winners will be selected and announced on Monday, the week of July 27 to 31. What have you got to lose? Enter now and who knows, you may just be holding your very own Xbox One, thanks to IEEE!
