Five Years of Ripstone @ E3
22nd June 2016
And that's another E3 in the bag!
The beginning of 2016 marked our 5th birthday, making this our 5th time attending E3 to talk all things indie publishing! The show was a great way to celebrate our birthday, with five of us making the trip across the pond to explore the show floor.
Following our announcment that Pure Chess is coming to Xbox One and PC this summer, the timing of the show could not have been better and we've had some amazing feedback!
Countless meetings, six team breakfasts, five matching baseball caps, lots of indie pitches and one inflatable swan made for a memorable trip (in more ways than one) and we're already looking forward to E3 2017.
We've got lots of exciting things on the horizon and can't wait to announce what we're working on, so sit tight..

New Ironcast Commanders Reporting to PS4 and Xbox One
03rd June 2016
Lords and Ladies of the Consortium: we have received news of two new Commanders joining the battle for Queen and country on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One!
Two brand new Ironcast DLC packs are coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this summer, containing new playable Commanders and Ironcast mechs.
The Stirling Pack includes a specialist Ironcast called 'The Stirling', as well as a new Commander. The Stirling utilises a magnetic limpet cannon to blast enemy targets with electrical energy. Commander Katherine Chapman's signature augmentation rewards players who create long node chains with additional resources, and she also improves the chance of players locating rare blueprints from fallen enemies.
The Windsor Pack includes 'The Windsor' Ironcast which uses a unique device to steal a layer of shield defences from its opponent, weakening them whilst improving its own defences. The DLC pack also includes a new Commander; Henry Brent. His signature augmentation rewards players with a temporary shield boost when used in battle. In addition, his Ironcast always begins the game with an active shield layer.
The packs will be available to purchase on console this summer and the full game is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
See you on the battlefield Commanders!
