Header image Hit the road with MudRunner's American Wilds Launch Trailer, Hitting Switch Nov. 27th, 2018

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 — Indie hit Spintires: MudRunner gets even more gripping with the American Wilds expansion available today on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and the Switch version coming November 27. Check out the American Wilds Launch Trailer to see much-requested added features: new vehicles from Ford, Chevrolet, Hummer and more, plus maps based on the roughest terrain of the United States, adding to Spintires: MudRunner’s unique gameplay. All of this is available in the new expansion, or as a stand-alone edition, which includes the base game, the expansion, and all the DLC released so far together in one package.

Overcome muddy terrain, raging rivers, and other obstacles that realistically react to the weight and movement of your vehicle, powered by the game's advanced physics engine. For the first time, American Wilds includes well-known vehicles such as the Ford F-150, the Chevrolet K5 Blazer, and GM’s iconic Hummer, among others. These additions increase the total amount of vehicles to 33, with more than 60 add-ons, all playable solo or with up to three others in co-op multiplayer. On PC they join hundreds of mods created by the passionate MudRunner community for an ever-evolving experience.

Also added to the roster are Mount Logmore and Grizzly Creek, two new sandbox maps inspired by the rugged landscapes of Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota. The maps also include a pair of new challenges for crane operation and flatbed delivery.

Level-5's cancelled PSP title Ushiro gets revived for Switch

All the way back in 2008, Level-5 was working on a horror title for the PSP called Ushiro. That game ended up getting cancelled, and not a peep has been heard since. That is, until this week's issue of Famitsu. The magazine has a Level-5 scoop that confirms the game is back in production, and now it's coming to Switch.

We'll have to wait for the full magazine feature to pop up online to get details, but at the very least, it's exciting to know this once-dead project is getting a second chance at life!

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth - 'Junessic Land' trailer

As you might know, Persona Q2's dungeons are movie-themed. This trailer shows off one of those dungeons, which is called “Junessic Land.” This takes place on a lone island far off in the sea, where a theme park has managed to bring back dinosaurs. Hmm....sounds a tad familiar.
