Masthead Studios released new map screen shots of their free to play title GUNS and ROBOTS.
The new map of GUNS and ROBOTS represents classic American house. The American house is a multiplayer death match map, small in size to make the action more intense. Most of the deadly close-encounters take place in the backyard. The map features indoor and outdoor environments with many pickups and breakable objects to shoot at and distract the opponents.
The new map allows players to test their robots in new situations and gives them countless hours of re-playable content. Dictated by the humor of its creators the map is scattered all over with dirty laundry, fun random objects and a remarkable swimming pool, which is difficult to cross. The maps appear randomly and players can not choose which map they will be playing on.
The desolated backyard is not a traditional yard with flowers but a torn-up deadly place where players will meet their opponents. The American House is suitable for the competitive players who enjoy adrenaline-pumping game play modes. There are many rooms to explore but players should stay alert for what hides behind every corner. Read more

The Necromancer is the master of death and decay and greatly feared by their opponents. Warriors and Vampires need to beware the Necromancer Class is coming to the MMORPG, Eudemons Online. Eudemons Online is a long standing western style fantasy MMORPG developed by TQ Digital Entertainment.
Player Kills and Pets are the most important aspects of Eudemons Online. The Necromancer Class is highly regarded as the master of death and commanding of undead servants. This class is feared by all other classes and as the level of the character increases so will the power of their spells and pets. The mystery of the Necromancer will be arriving on December 28, 2012 with the latest expansion of Eudemons Online, “Cult of the Shadowed Sun”.
As the release date approaches many questions will be answered. In Eudemons Online, the Necromancer will have non-traditional abilities including the ability to switch between Necro Status and Wizard Status. In Wizard Status, their magic greatly increases while the amount of physical damage decreases during Necro Status. During certain conditions, Necromancers are immune to Warriors and Vampire’s Fatal Combo Attack. Necromancers will also have a special ability called Necro Realm which enables this class to sacrifice all kinds of Eudemons to gain points. These points can be used to summon 8 different Necro Spirits. Read more
