Oh...Sir! The Hollywood Roast Heads to DVD... I mean PS4 and Xbox One!

Oh.. Sir! The Hollywood Roast is heading to PS4 and Xbox One very soon! Take the time to dust off your insult chops, and read on below to find out more about the new release.

TMZ fiends take note, Oh... Sir! The Hollywood Roast is leaving the silver windows screen for consoles. That's right, console plebeians of the PS4 and Xbox One variety can elevate their roasting game to new levels with the upcoming release this Spring. Oh... Sir! The Hollywood Roast will also have Mixer integration for Xbox One owners, letting viewers vote on their preferred insult. All of this and more for the lovely price of $4.99! You'd be a nincompoop not to check it out.

About Oh...Sir! The Hollywood Roast:

The banter is back, and looking glitzier than ever! Oh…Sir! The Hollywood roast is a new spinoff to the surprise indie hit of 2016, Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator. This time around we’re taking tinsel town down a few notches, whilst classing up the joint. Play as one of many famous, but for legal purposes, slightly different pop culture icons and verbally spar with other Hollywood elitists using a deep battle system. Verbally joust by yourself or take you skills on a global PR tour and battle friends and family from anywhere in the world.

Game Features:

  • Unleash the sickest burns on your opponents in a Hollywood-style roast

  • Play alone, online or with a friend (if you have one) in couch multiplayer

  • Deeper-than-you-think mechanics featuring combos, continuations and exploiting your rival’s weak spots

  • A star-studded new cast of crazy Hollywood characters

  • Set the scene with a slew of iconic film backdrops

  • Controller integration that critics everywhere are calling “gripping”

  • With more than 2x the vocabulary of the original Oh...Sir!! The Insult Simulator, The Hollywood Roast is Bigger, ruder and insultier!

  • New comeback mechanic: charge your anger and finish the sentence with a unique closure

  • Expanded career mode: master each scene to win Golden Parrots and use them to develop your character

  • Redesigned scoring system: more fair, more clear.

Game ON!

AO International Tennis announced by Big Ant Studios

Big Ant Studios Announces AO International Tennis – Featuring Rafael

Big Ant Studios has today announced AO International Tennis for release on May 8, 2018. Featuring world #1 Rafael Nadal, AO International Tennis offers the most comprehensive feature set of any tennis game ever made, giving players unprecedented control over how they play their favorite sport.

Additionally, AO International Tennis will be the first game to be enhanced with PlayFace™, Big Ant’s in-depth character creator software that gives users the ability to create photorealistic likenesses in-game.

“Tennis fans are passionate about their sport and made it clear what they wanted to see in a tennis game,” said Big Ant CEO Ross Symons. “Building on our previous titles, we’ve made adjustments and significant additions to meet those expectations. We’re incredibly committed to the sport of tennis and proud of the results. We believe that what players will see and do in AO International Tennis will impress even the most diehard fan.”

"Each year, the eyes of the world turn to Melbourne Park for the Australian Open for the start of the tennis calendar, and 2018 was no different,” said Tennis Australia CEO and Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley. “We’re excited to be able to give fans from around the world the chance to experience the Australian Open from their own homes with AO International Tennis.”

Sea of Thieves: Content Plans!

Sea of Thieves is a unique experience. As we look to add to the game, we will be very purposeful about the type of experience we want to create, and how we want this game to grow. At the same time, we have also been listening closely to everyone playing the game since launch and have been ensuring that this feeds into our content plans. When considering what to add to our plans, we always consider how we can make the most impact on the following:

  • Bringing players together in interesting ways, encouraging different types of player encounters

  • Enriching the world that players adventure in

  • Giving players new ways to play

  • Giving players a variety of goals and rewards

  • Broadening the journey to Pirate Legend and beyond

    Alongside this, what's key for us is the rhythm and cadence we want to get into with Sea of Thieves. Our focus for April is to continue addressing the top feedback points, but as we move into May, our focus will shift to new content.

    Our first content update, The Hungering Deep, will release in May and bring with it a new AI threat to the world. Crews will have to work together to discover and defeat this threat as part of a unique event. We will also be introducing a number of new mechanics to assist players on this adventure, and there will be unique rewards that players can earn as part of this event. Beyond this, we will begin our weekly events programme during May, where we introduce new mechanics and give players fun new ways to play with weekly events and rewards.

    In the summer months, we'll debut two more content updates with Cursed Sails, which will include a new ship type, and Forsaken Shores, which will introduce players to a perilous new part of the world to explore. Similarly to The Hungering Deep, both of these updates will also include new gameplay mechanics for players, new AI threats to challenge and new unique rewards to claim.

    As we've always said, we never wanted to do anything to separate our players, so we're pleased to confirm that all content updates will be available to all our players, at no additional cost.

    For more details on our plans for the coming months, and some in-depth thinking behind them, please watch the video below.

With Sea of Thieves being a game that grows and evolves, we'll be listening to you, our community, throughout. As such, we'll always be looking at whether our current plans are meeting your needs. Based on feedback since launch, we have changed the priorities for both Pets and Ship Captaincy which we had previously announced as things we would look to add in the few months after launch. These are on the back burner for now whilst we add to the game in other areas. Expect our plans to continue to be fluid, but always with the goals listed above as our guiding principles.
