New Wallpaper of the Brothers Wyeth and IGN Powers Part 3

Another wallpaper this weekend ! It is from our French Connection - Algarys. Great stuff. Check the comments section for how Algarys made these great wallpapers.

Algarys has a series of 10 images to share so keep watching this space...

IGN - The Special Powers of Advent Rising, Pt. 3

Also up today is another IGN Powers article - Part 3. It's a little hidden this time down in the News section.
Today we get a look at Timeshift (a Speed boost power)

The primary function seems to be a standard speed boost power... the secondary power is a slowdown mode 'bubble'. Both are powers we've seen before in other games, but pairing them together seems to make sense.

Also revealed is the 'Talmage 50.08' rocket launcher. Sounds like it also has some form of seeking ability... based on 'sonic pathways - interesting. (A pic is also available)

We also get a decent write up on the 'Hurricane'. Described as a 'highly-armored behemoth military vehicle' it looks like it should be fun. Unfortunately there are no pics of it but I think it is observable in some of the gameplay trailers we have seen so far.

EDIT : subordinator has just pointed out in the comments section that the 'Hurricane' write up has been removed from the article... no idea why that would be the case...

Hi everyone!
Rooney, the pleasure is mine and I hope you’ll like my future wallpapers too…
I make all my wallpapers with Paint shop Pro 9, and, for this wallpaper, I used the Concept number 4 (which can be found in the Official Advent site), I turned it so that it does not bother to see the icons, I modified it so that it can fit as a wallpaper and I added the Advent logo.

Nice work Algarys ! I look forward to seeing and posting the rest.

With just under 40 days to go, I'll be posting a few a week as we get closer to release...

Nicely done, Algarys.

Just a comment on the IGN powers: the Hurricane section has been removed. There was no explanation given or even mention of the removal. They just, well, did it.

Thanks for the heads up subordinator.

I note that the earlier bit of the article still reads "In our third features, we take a look at a one of Giddeon's superpowers, one vehicle, and one weapon."

While it's good to see these articles spreading the word, the QA on these a pieces is all over the place !
