Manager Games S.A. confirmed that Bike Mechanic Simulator 2023 will be heading to consoles and PC. The full version of Bike Mechanic Simulator 2023 for PCs is planned for the second half of this year. The simulator will be released later on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch consoles.
The Polish studio Punch Punk S.A. (Apocalipsis: Harry at the End of the World and This is the Zodiac Speaking) is the creator of the new simulator. The game publisher is Manager Games S.A., the daughter company of the Ultimate Games S.A group (who earlier released Drill Deal – Oil Tycoon for PC).
The Steam platform already offers a free demo of Bike Mechanic Simulator 2023 which introduces us to the game. The creators give the player the three bikes (each in 2-3 variants), and the gameplay is limited to a time within which you can do various random jobs.
Bike Mechanic Simulator 2023 is a realistic simulator, where you can learn the ropes of the bike mechanic and progress in running your workshop. The gameplay involves repairing, servicing and bike assembly within the jobs received for completion. The player's role is also to maintain the workshop with its tools and repair stand.
"While the demo is being out now, we're looking forward to hearing from the players whose opinions are also the valuable source for the further game development. The full version of Bike Mechanic Simulator 2023 will be packed with more content, and each of the elements will be scrutinised and enhanced. Our main objective is that the game is not only a realistic simulator, but also a good entertainment and something to chill at. For this reason, Bike Mechanic Simulator 2023 will, to some extent, as far as the mechanic job is concerned, be simplified", said Tomasz Sobiecki, CEO of Manager Games S.A.

GIANTS Software revealed that nine new agricultural machines and tools are now available for Farming Simulator 22 players on consoles and PC. The Göweil Pack adds new possibilities while improving the quality and efficiency of your operation that depends on baling your valuable resources.
Austrian manufacturer Göweil has an international reputation for producing high-quality, durable, and innovative machinery – especially baling and wrapping technology. With their debut in the Farming Simulator series, a broad selection of machines and tools adds new possibilities for virtual farmers with a knack for baling.
Players are now able to transform even more resources into bales: Corn silage, sugar beet pulp, mixed feed, and more can be baled and wrapped with high-tech machines like the Göweil LT-Master F115 or VARIOMaster V140. A small but substantial detail for baling enthusiasts: Net-binding in addition to foil-wrapping will be possible.
Operations dependent on baled resources can also extend their farm by deploying stationary and autonomous baler-wrappers like the G4010 Q Profi to achieve a high output of bales in variable shapes & sizes. Roller wrappers like the Göweil G1015 attach to front loaders or three-point hitches and transport, wrap, and stack bales – with one single, efficient machine.
The ground breaking Dead Island franchise first hit the scene in 2011 with one of the most viewed videogame trailers of all time. The latest instalment, which was announced with a gloriously gory trailer during gamescom’s Opening Night Live event in 2022, takes players on a blood soaked, pulp voyage to escape Los Angeles, now nicknamed HELL-A, as it descends into zombie-infested chaos with all of the over the top action and dark humor that fans will be expecting.
Deep Silver will be revealing more gameplay and trailers for fans of the franchise to enjoy before they embark on their own fight for survival on 21st April 2023.
Dead Island 2 picks up the Dead Island and Escape Dead Island storyline several months after the events on the Banoi islands. The United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine which, for some, is a dream come true with a promise of a fresh start.
The city is in quarantine and the military have retreated. Bitten, infected, but more than just immune, you learn to harness the tainted powers running through your veins. Only you, and the handful of other swaggering assholes who happen to be resistant to the pathogen, hold the future of Los Angeles (and humanity), in the balance. You were born to this. As you uncover the truth behind the outbreak you’ll uncover the truth of who – or what – you are. Survive, evolve, save the world – just another day in LA!
Burst2Flame (@burst2flame) announced that simultaneous turn-based tactical RPG, Stolen Realm, will be exiting Early Access and releasing on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC in Q2 2023. The studio today also released the new World Map Update, removing the transition between the map and battles and introducing three brand new areas to the game, along with a host of other additions and improvements.
Praised by the likes of Shroud and Sacriel for the flexibility of its class customisation and a design that avoids RPG bloat, Stolen Realm takes the deep tactical systems of RPGs like Divinity: Original Sin and gives it a unique twist. Simultaneous turns allows all members of the player and enemy team to take their actions at once, creating the kinds of fast-paced encounters you’d typically find in action RPGs, without sacrificing the strategic richness that turn-based RPG fans love.
Stolen Realm features a highly customisable class system that allows you to create traditional RPG
classes or break the mould to forge a unique champion of your own. Make a spell-slinging assassin, a priest born of frost, or a shadow-infused knight as you draw from a pool of over 300 possible skills. With over 700 items to loot, each fully customisable with modifiers, there’s even more opportunity to change the way you play: wield Abbadon the Soul Crusher, a mythic mace that raises slain enemies as skeletal warriors to fight for you, or unsheath the Bloodletter, a cursed sword that grants additional power at the cost of your lifeblood. D&D-like special events where attribute-based rolls will have permanent effects on your character add yet another layer to building a character that is truly your own in a title that keeps a constant stream of compelling choices at the forefront of your experience.
With the release of the latest update, a world that changes with every expedition you undertake – either alone or with up to six players together via Stolen Realm’s friction free drop-in/drop-out co-op system – gets even bigger. Delve deep into the forgotten ruins of the once great Dwarven Halls, adventure into the untamed wilds of the Emerald Jungle and uncover the mysteries of the Sunken Swamplands, facing all new foes like creeping spiders, giant scorpions and Great Wyrms along the way. The transition between the world map and battles is now gone - now you can take your fight directly to enemies on the world map.
