Midnight City announces next two indie releases

Blood of the Werewolf transforms onto consoles with Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche bouncing onto Steam in Spring 2014

Midnight City, the recently founded indie label ofMajesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of games for the mass market, is proud to announce two more indie releases in the pipeline. Beast Game’s indie fan-favorite Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche will be fully optimized for Steam in late Q1, followed by an updated Blood of the Werewolf expanding to the Xbox Live online entertainment network for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation ® Network simultaneously in Q2. Tune in to Scientifically Proven’s livestream on January 31st to get a special preview of the game and meet the team!

Based on the wildly popular flash game Avalanche, Beast Games’ Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche builds on the core platform-climbing gameplay with a host of new features, adding more dimension than ever before. Players start out as a bouncy marshmallow character compelled upward by a rising tide of liquid, while a constant stream of procedurally generated items and breakable blocks fall from the sky. What starts as a simple climb soon becomes a challenge to survive as blocks can crush the marshmallow heroes if they don’t act fast. To aid players in their altitude-driven quest, unlock up to four item slots for over 70,000 combinations of special power-ups that help ‘mallows jump higher, move faster, double jump and more! On the ascent, keep an eye out for special chests to break and discover bonuses and valuable coins which can be used to purchase customizations and abilities. Randomly generated bosses spawn at specific altitudes on special platforms, punctuating the heart-pumping climb at critical intervals. Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche is planned to release on Steam in late Q1 2014.

Released to critical acclaim this last Halloween on Steam, Blood of the Werewolf is ready to transform onto consoles with fresh content for its debut. New game mode ‘Endless Challenge’ pits players against procedurally generated, increasingly difficult gauntlets for limitless runs to sharpen the player’s skills and compete on leaderboards. For the uninitiated, Blood of the Werewolf spins the tale of Selena, a loving wife, mother and unstoppable werewolf who races against time to save her son from the evil Victor Frankenstein. Fueled by vengeance at the sight of her murdered husband, Selena sets off on a blood-soaked rescue mission that spans 10 levels of platforming action with five intense boss arenas. Dynamic gameplay focuses on lightning-quick transformations from human to werewolf form by light of the moon. Along the way Selena faces off with a reimagined cast of monster-movie icons including The Creature, Jekyll & Hyde, The Mummy, Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster. Adding to the challenge, players must seek out secret rooms and hidden areas scattered throughout the game to collect power-ups for their crossbow, werewolf powers and health upgrades. Blood of the Werewolf is a thrilling platformer that pays homage to the classics of days past and reignites the passion for mastery that inspired one of the greatest eras in video games. Blood of the Werewolf is planned to release on the Xbox Live online entertainment network for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation ® Network simultaneously in Q2 2014.

As a special thanks to those who purchased Blood of the Werewolf on Steam, Scientifically Proven will release a free update with challenge room content, post-console release.

First DLC Pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts Delivers Epic Offering Featuring Four New Maps,
All-New Dual-Purpose Weapon, Iconic Horror Character Michael Myers and the Initial Instalment in Extinction’s New, Four-Part Episodic Storyline
For the Definitive Online Experience

Fans can Purchase the Onslaught DLC Pack Individually,
Or as Part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass Discounted* Bundle

Onslaught is here.  The first of four massive, Downloadable Content (DLC) Packs for Call of Duty®: Ghosts, the definitive online experience and #1 most played multiplayer title on Xbox Live for Xbox 360 kicks-off today.  Launching first, exclusively on Xbox Live for both Xbox One and Xbox 360, Onslaught features four classically designed, smaller to medium sized Call of Duty® multiplayer maps delivering the fast-paced multiplayer experience fans love, the all-new “Maverick” dual-purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle and “Episode 1: Nightfall,” the first instalment in Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction’s four-part episodic story that follows humankind’s first contact with the Cryptids.

"Onslaught delivers a ton of exciting, new content for Call of Duty: Ghosts fans to enjoy on next gen and current gen alike," said Daniel Suarez, Vice President of Production, Activision Publishing, Inc. "It begins with a diverse set of maps that personify that classic Call of Duty-style of fast, frantic and exhilarating action. It doesn’t stop there, because Infinity Ward and Neversoft have taken it to another level; whether it’s becoming Michael Myers from Halloweenas you pursue your opponents, to creating the first dual-purpose weapon in Call of Duty history, or crafting a new chapter in Extinction that introduces new characters and even a three-story tall Cryptid alien boss, Onslaught has something for all Call of Duty players and we're excited fans can finally get their hands on it."

Onslaught is included as part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass, which gives fans access to four epic Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Packs** planned for release this year – Onslaught,DevastationInvasion and Nemesis. Additionally, Call of Duty Ghosts DLC Season Pass holders get instant access to the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, player patch, card and background.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught delivers a variety of new offerings for fans to dig their teeth into, starting with four new multiplayer maps. “Fog” is a chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake. Players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of terror by donning the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters of all-time, as the entire soundscape changes to the eerily familiar Halloween theme music.

“BayView” is a coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.

“Containment” drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centres on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.

Onslaught’s fourth map, “Ignition,” is a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favourite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close attention.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught also introduces the first instalment in Extinction’s new, four-part episodic narrative with “Episode 1: Nightfall.” As the initial foray into this single, connected story that will be told across each DLC Pack launch throughout the year, “Episode 1: Nightfall” takes fans to a remote research facility hidden deep within the Alaskan wilderness, where a small recon team must infiltrate the facility to find out what happened to the mysterious Nightfall Program. This expanded Extinction storyline introduces new characters, plus two all-new alien species and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverises the Cryptids, as players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind’s first contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.

On top of the new maps and first episode of the Extinction narrative, Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught arms players with a new, dual-purpose addition to the multiplayer arsenal with the “Maverick”. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock, the “Maverick” can be selected in either the Assault or the Sniper Rifle class, depending on players’ play style and preference.
