“1849 Nevada Silver” expansion pack now available for gold rush-themed sim “1849” (PC / Mac / iPad / Android)

The original 1849 puts players in the well-worn boots of a true forty-niner – building, managing, and mining twenty towns clustered in California’s iconic Gold Country. Story mode challenges players to complete self-contained scenarios, while an endless Sandbox mode invites marathon open-ended play.*

The new 1849: Nevada Silver expansion pack carries the simulation into neighboring Nevada to present six challenging new scenarios set during the Comstock Silver Rush, ten years after the Gold Rush kicked off in California. With trains moving goods between distant cities, steam-powered mills boosting production, and more complex mining processes yielding deeply hidden riches, 1849: Nevada Silver expands on 1849’s addictive gameplay to provide even more challenge on a bustling new frontier.

Batman vs Superman: Batmobile First Official Look

bvs

DC entertainment and Warner Bros. have released the first on-set images of The Batmobile that Ben Affleck will use in Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. It is a completely different look compared to the previous versions of it we’ve seen on screen so far. To me this new Batmobile looks pretty cool, they decided to go with more of an aggressive, off-road looking version for it. Compared to the other versions of it, the classic sliding door was also given a makeover, which I’m not so happy about but it somehow fits it right. From the looks of it too, it looks like he’s been doing some serious driving on it because it very very dirty. Overall it looks pretty cool and i cant wait to see it in action whenever the release of the first trailer hits. Check out the images and let me know your thoughts in the comment box below.
