ROCCAT Extends Keyboard Range

German peripheral manufacturer ROCCAT today announces a brand new mechanical keyboard design aimed at gaming purists. The Suora’s frameless design channels its philosophy as a pure and efficient mechanical keyboard for no-frills gamers. Its robust, compact build with aluminum alloy housing provides a consistent, distraction-free platform. It features a unique build with an entirely frameless structure. No palm rest, no thick border, no thumb keys, and no unnecessary media keys – just high-quality, mechanical keys mounted on a durable plate. The key back-lighting in exclusive ROCCAT blue comes with a breathing effect and 11 brightness levels, with top notch lighting guaranteed. 
 
The raw design lets you get closer in touch with the action, for lightning-fast and distraction-free gameplay. It isn’t much good having an intuitively designed keyboard built for speed if the keys can’t keep up with your hot action. The Suora features an advanced anti-ghosting matrix that ensures every key stroke will be registered, time and time again. With its 1000Hz (1ms) polling rate the Suora will be with you every key stroke of the way, each and every time. Its solid construction is complemented by tough mechanical keys with a staggering 50 million key stroke lifecycle.
 
The Suora also comes complete with full ROCCAT Swarm support. Swarm is the software incarnation of ROCCAT’s future ready philosophy. It’ll cover you for all relevant gaming platforms and devices. It’s the next-gen system that keeps on top of all games, apps and ROCCAT products in one place. It’s a veritable gaming command HQ that’ll keep you up to speed. 
 
The ROCCAT Suora will be available early in July 2016. The MSRP is 99,99 Euro/USD.

As mentioned, 100% of the ticket proceeds from TennoCon will be donated to the official charitable partner of TennoCon, Outward Bound Canada.

 

When plans of TennoCon first started taking shape, the goal was to get as many Tenno together to celebrate Warframe as we could,” said Meridith Braun, vice president of publishing at Digital Extremes. “While it made sense to charge admission to commit players to attending, it made even more sense to have those proceeds go toward helping others. This follows a philosophy we reinforce with our Tenno — contribute in making a meaningful difference in the world as both players and citizens in a global community — be honorable Tenno.

 

Ms. Braun continued, “We began looking for a charitable partner to see this commitment through and chose Outward Bound Canada for its alignment with our company values and its commitment to improving the lives of those in need.

 

TennoCon 2016 will be held at the London Convention Centre in London, Ontario, Canada on July 9, 2016. For full details, please visit the official website.

Alejandro G. Iñárritus cinematiske mesterværk – The Revenant!

Den kritikerroste fortælling om overlevelse og hævn kommer på Digital HD og på 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray og DVD d. 2. juni 2016. 

 

Leonardo DiCaprio har hovedrollen i en af de mest omtalte film i 2016 – The Revenant – som udkommer på Digital HD og 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray og DVD d. 2. juni fra Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Ikke alene er The Revenant en af de mest omtalte film i år, den er også en af de mest roste film. Udover at trække tre Oscars hjem har filmatiseringen af bogen rundet 380 millioner dollars i billetindtægter. 

Inspireret af virkelige hændelser, følger The Revenant historien om den legendariske opdagelsesrejsende Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) i sin jagt på overlevelse og retfærdighed. Efter et brutalt bjørneangreb bliver pelsjægeren Hugh Glass efterladt og må klare sig gennem en nådesløs vinter i vildmarken. Dette episke eventyr fanger menneskets helt særlige overlevelsesinstinkt. 

Sammen med hæder ved Oscar-uddellingen modtog The Revenant også tre Golden Globes, fem BAFTA’s, en DGA-pris for bedste instruktør (Iñárritu) og SAG-pris for bedste skuespiller (DiCaprio), foruden mange andre anderkendelser. Filmen indeholder fantastisk cinematografi af Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki, som har været Oscar-vinder tre gange i træk (Gravity, Birdman), samt fremragende skuespilspræstationer i form af Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road), Domhnall Gleeson (Brooklyn), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner) og en debut til den store scene, Forrest Goodluck. 

Blu-ray-udgaven indeholder den storslåede dokumentar “A World Unseen”, der tager seeren ind i verdenen i USA i det 19. århundrede og afdækker visionen bag The Revenant og dens paralleller fundet i verdenen i dag igennem filmens visuelle instruktør sammen med DiCaprio. 

Crytek’s debut virtual reality game is available now!

Experience an extreme new reality and the adrenaline of the ascent in The Climb

The Climb from Crytek – Out now on Oculus Rift

Frankfurt am Main (Germany) April 29, 2016 – Bringing the thrilling sensation of extreme free solo rock climbing home to players everywhere, Crytek has announced that its debut virtual reality game, The Climb, is out now.

Launching for Oculus Rift, The Climb invites players into breathtaking virtual worlds to scale sheer cliff faces and explore rock climbing playgrounds inspired by real-life locations. To coincide with the game’s launch, Crytek has also shared details of The Climb’s third setting, Canyon, which joins Alps and the Asian-themed Bay location.

The newly-revealed environment takes inspiration from the landscapes of the Grand Canyon and draws upon wider natural and cultural cues from across the USA, combining iconic elements to create an immersive blend of sights, sounds, and adrenaline-pumping challenges. By night, fireworks from a music festival and howling coyotes accompany breathtaking ascents, while daylight reveals endless vistas marked by winding rivers, mysterious mine shafts, and jets performing dramatic formation flyovers. The heat will be on as players feel the scale of the environment, the vertigo of the height, and the challenge of the competition to achieve the best times on leaderboards.

Complementing the main free solo rock climbing experience, The Climb features tutorials and a procedurally generated endless climbing wall to practice on, plus six intense bouldering routes to beat. Players can also use Tourist mode to explore each expansive environment with simplified game mechanics, perfect for discovering new routes, enjoying the scenery, and for demonstrating VR to friends and family for the first time. Finally, the game’s asynchronous multiplayer mode allows gamers to compete against other player’s ascents and send challenges to their friends.

To complete The Climb’s host of vertical challenges, players will have to master different grip types, balance speed against stamina, and discover routes and shortcuts. Ninety-nine achievements are up for grabs, as players unlock custom watches, gloves, and wristbands, while amazing visual payoffs act as a reward for accomplishing each ascent and demonstrating the jaw-dropping power of CRYENGINE and VR.

Executive Producer for The Climb, Elijah Dorman Freeman, said: “From the moment we started prototyping The Climb, we knew VR and rock climbing were a dream combination. The intense feeling of engaging in the world’s most extreme sport high above the ground is only possible in VR, and our team has gone to great lengths to replicate the tension and thrillof free solo climbing. With CRYENGINE and the Rift, we’ve been able to create a game that will challenge players to come back again and again, and build a virtual world like nothing they’ve seen or experienced before.”

The Climb is out now, exclusively for Oculus Rift, and launches with a price of $49.99 on Oculus Home.
