Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

  • Rock Band Metal Track Pack (PS2/Wii/PS3/X360)
  • Fallen Earth (PC)
  • Supreme Ruler 2020 GOLD (PC)

We will update this throughout the day when new announcements become available. Read more for details ...

Rock Band Metal Track Pack (PS2/Wii/PS3/X360)

The Rock Band Metal Track Pack is a standalone disc of 20 face-melting tracks hand-chosen by the gods of metal themselves.

This collection of explosive songs represents a great variety of what the metal genre has to offer – past and present – including tracks from Black Tide, Evile, Godsmack, Lamb of God, Queen of the Stone Age and more!  The Rock Band Metal Track Pack also includes six new songs brand new to the Rock Band platform from Blue Oyster Cult, Hawkwind, I Mother Earth, Motörhead, Nazareth and Rage Against the Machine.  These six songs will be exclusive to the Rock Band Metal Track Pack for a limited time before joining the Rock Band Music Store as downloadable content.

Rock Band Metal Track Pack, like all Rock Band software, is compatible with all Rock Band controllers, as well as most Guitar Hero and authorized third-party controllers and microphones. 

Fans who buy the Rock Band Metal Track Pack for Xbox 360 or PS3 can play directly from the disc or download the songs onto their consoles’ hard drives through a free offer with Xbox LIVE online entertainment network or the PlayStation Network. Once downloaded, the songs will automatically appear in the player’s custom Rock Band library and can be integrated into setlists and played in all game modes.  With more than 1,000 tracks expected to be available in the Rock Band music catalogue and regular releases of downloadable content every week by the end of 2009, Rock Band Metal Track Pack is yet another way music-lovers can continue to expand and customize their music libraries.

The Rock Band Metal Track Pack, rated T for Teen, is available for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and Wii for $29.99.

Fallen Earth (PC)

The game is scheduled to reach retailers nationwide by September 30. Additionally, fans can download Fallen Earth digitally from Direct2Drive, Steam and the Fallen Earth store for instant access to live service today.
 "The thoughtful development and diligence of our team is realized in a physical product, and that's exciting," said Jessica Orr, product manager for Fallen Earth. "We are pleased to add another avenue of purchase for our fans in conjunction with our existing digital sales."
Fallen Earth combines the accuracy of first-person shooter style games with the depth and character advancement of a role-playing game. The game features a classless advancement system, a real-time crafting system in which players can make 95 percent of in game items, six unique factions, 70 towns and more than 1,000 square kilometers of zoneless territory to explore. Set in 2156 after the deadly Shiva virus and nuclear holocaust devastated the Earth, survivors are left with the choice to rebuild civilization and rise above the destruction or to embrace the chaos and tear down what's left of the old world.
Fans can gain immediate access to the game today by digitally downloading through Direct2Drive, Steam and the Fallen Earth store. All purchases offer a free 30-day subscription. Check individual web sites for purchase offers and terms.
