Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Shipping Announcements 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:

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

Awesomenauts (XBLA)

The year is 3587, conflict spans the stars. Huge robot armies are locked in an enduring stalemate. At the centre is a team of elite mercenaries fighting for the spoils of war: The Awesomenauts.

Awesomenauts is a side-scrolling multiplayer online battle arena game. The game mixes '80s cartoon graphics and platforming with a deep upgrade system. Awesomenauts allows up to six players to battle across multiple alien worlds. Featuring a playable roster of six unique heroes, Awesomenauts brings together team play and lightsaber-wielding aliens.

Defeat droids, turrets, other players and the enemy base to win. The choice of characters includes a cowboy who solves everything with dynamite, a floating brain that can heal allies, a spacefrog that uses breakdance moves. If you need help, you can have your friends join you online — or on the couch using split-screen.

Awesomenauts is available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft points ($10).

Fable Heroes (XBLA)

Fable Heroes features hack-and-slash gameplay, four-player co-op, time trials and leaderboards. Heroes work together to defeat enemies while competing to collect gold coins. Collected coins level up characters and unlock items in Fable: The Journey, which launches later this year.

Key Features:

  • Heroic Challenges. Band together with friends to defeat enemies or compete against them to collect gold coins. Players unlock items and level up.
  • Albion with a Twist. Fable Heroes delivers a fresh take on Albion art and aesthetics. The world includes familiar regions, enemies and cheeky characters from Fable.
  • Skilled Progression. Players crush friends and foes to level up. As heroes advance, game features unlock, such as finishing moves, flourishes and power-ups.
  • Challenging Gameplay. Prevail in minigames to gain powers and unlock levels to beat previous scores and climb the Xbox Live leaderboards. Set the difficulty level from the start to challenge both experts and novices alike.

Fable Heroes is available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft points ($10).

Iron Grip: Warlord - Scorched Earth DLC (PC)

In Iron Grip: Warlord - Scorched Earth, the small group of defiant Atelians is under pressure from the Confederacy. Exciting weapons, enemy characters and units have been added, including airstrikes and the Deathhand Missile Launcher. Confederate spies lurk among the rebels, and the race is on to hunt down Confederate officers while defending strongholds. Players will discover new Atelian resources, including a powerful rocket launcher and a propaganda radio to incite Confederate units.

Deathmatch PvP is introduced in Scorched Earth. Players battle one another on maps where they once fought side by side. Players who battle on the official Warlord servers will have their scores added to the Deathmatch Hall of Fame.

The Scorched Earth DLC is available for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and can be purchased from Steam for $4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99.
