Trustmaster Ghost Recon HS

In certain sensitive situations – like an elite unit of four Ghosts, stealthily carrying out high-risk missions in the rugged terrain of Bolivia – mastery of what you say and what you hear takes on life-or-death importance. With its ground-breaking new headsets, Thrustmaster is taking these senses to a whole new level, allowing gamers to optimize their exchanges with team members. This results in crystal-clear communication between your squad,  and the ability to hear even the slightest sounds from far away, allowing you to anticipate and respond to whatever this hostile environment might throw at you. To achieve this, these headsets have been designed to reflect the game’s audio signature with pinpoint accuracy, using the Thrustmaster development teams’ own in-house, state-of-the-art anechoic chamber.

The two flagship models of this range are the Y-350X 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition and the Y-350P 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition. Both feature a 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound audio system via the Y Sound Commander controller. The former is officially licensed for Xbox One, and the latter for PlayStation4. What’s more, the PlayStation 4 version is a worldwide exclusive with the Y Sound Commander, marking the first use of this award-winning technology on this platform. Both of these headsets plunge gamers into the vast expanses of the Bolivian wildlands in truly breath-taking fashion.

In order to meet the needs of a wider cross-section of gamers, Thrustmaster will also be offering a GHOST RECON WILDLANDS edition of its best-selling Y-300CPX model: a multiplatform headset, for full compatibility with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 systems, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and Mac.

VideoGame News: Bulletstorm Full Clip Edition Story Trailer

bulletstorm-fce

Today, People Can Fly and Gearbox Publishing are thrilled to reveal a brand-new story trailer for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, the upcoming remastered release and definitive experience of the action-packed, critically-acclaimed FPS.


Updated with hi-res textures, increased polygon counts, sterling audio, smoother framerates, and running in up to 4K resolution on PC and PS4 Pro, this upgraded version of the critically-acclaimed shooter comes with all of the previously-released DLC along with brand-new content. In addition to six new maps for the score-based Echo Mode, players will enjoy the new Overkill Mode, which enables all weapons and Skillshots from the get-go once the initial campaign has been completed. Also for the first time, players who pre-order Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will get the chance to play as the one-and-only Duke Nukem. Featuring a fully rerecorded script and brand-new lines from the original voice of Duke, this feature will replace main character Grayson Hunt with The King himself and provide players with a whole new butt-kicking perspective on the cult-classic shooter.

In Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, players step into the boots of Grayson Hunt after a crash landing on an abandoned resort planet forces him to make a hard choice: survival or revenge. An exiled member of the elite assassin group Dead Echo, Grayson’s blind desire for vengeance finds his crew stranded on Stygia where he can finally confront the commander behind his betrayal — or get his team off the planet alive. Decimate throngs of Stygia’s mutated inhabitants, performing masterful kills throughout the single-player campaign — or one of 30 competitive score-challenge and 12 co-operative multiplayer maps — using the game’s unique “Skillshot” system, which rewards players for executing the most creative and deadly kills imaginable.

Developed by original developer People Can Fly and published worldwide by Gearbox Publishing, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will release on PlayStation4, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam on April 7, 2017.
