Alienware has announced some new hardware which will soon be released by the company at this year’s E3 2018. The announcements include a new Alienware mouse, a wireless gaming headset and a new desktop PC.
Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset
Alienware announced at this year’s E3 2018 the company’s first ever wireless headset. Alienware says that the “Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset is for diehards demanding game-dominating audiophile detail. Enhance game performance with clear natural and spatial sound, acoustic signature presets and customisable sound profiles, augmented by high-fidelity 40mm Neodymium drivers to deliver deep rich bass and an expansive soundscape. Designed for clear natural voice quality, in solo and multiplayer situations, the headset lets players position the mic nearer their mouth to reduce background noise, with a Game/Chat volume mixer and built-in voice notifications for battery life and wireless connectivity.
Durable yet lightweight, the headset is distinguished by a wide flexible headband engineered for snug fit and extreme comfort, with all controls within the reach of one finger. Rotatable, sports-fabric earcups keep players cool and focused, especially for marathon gaming. Alienware fans will appreciate the iconic design elements, including animated two zone LED lighting and click-and-play customisable AlienFX™ per-game light settings. The headset will be available in the U.S. beginning June 11, starting at $229.”

Plenty of muscle and split-second responsiveness derive from the latest 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors (up to 8-core, 16-thread), some of the highest multiprocessing, multitasking performance gamers can get on a mainstream desktop PC, with intelligent thermal design for optimal airflow to cool the system, whether for PC gaming, virtual reality or content creation. Other features include a USB Type-C 3.1 port, up to six USB 3.0 ports, optional dual-drive, high-capacity hard drive, responsive SSD option and up to five bays for future storage upgrades. Polar Blue LED lighting and a striking chassis design infuses the Inspiron Gaming Desktop with visual excitement.

At this years E3 2018 Alienware announced a new gaming mouse as a hardware accessory in amongst the brand’s current mix of options.

Its new iconic Alienware design with premium materials puts more control in gamers’ hands to play longer with advanced ergonomic engineering with two redesigned interchangeable side wings (with two or four buttons for FPS/MMORPG) and three-position palm rest for virtually any grip. With four configurable 5-gram weight adjustments, gamers have ultimate control over cursor precision and movement speed, enhanced by five configurable levels for on-the-fly DPI switching based on the need for speed or precision.

Fallout 76 Australian Release Date
The Fallout 76 Australian release date is November 14, 2018. The game is being released by Bethesda and is the latest entry in the Fallout franchise. Fallout 76 will be available on the Xbox One, PC and PS4. The game features both online and offline play modes.
At this year’s E3 2018 on the day of the Fallout 76 Australian release date announcement, we also got a new trailer which shows us a bit of what we might expect from Fallout 76. At the event itself, there were demonstrations of the game in its multiplayer mode and we were shown a little of how all of that works.
Fallout 76 Synopsis: “Reclamation Day, 2102. Twenty-five years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers – chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play solo or band together as you explore, quest, build and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats.” –Bethesda
The game also boasts a new “create a character” feature known as S.P.E.C.I.A.L so you can make your own personalised avatar to experience Fallout 76. With the character you make you will be able to venture out into the game’s setting and explore a total of six regions in the game based on West Virginia in the USA. Each region offers players different risks and rewards which take place in a post-nuclear America.
Fallout 76 also has an all-new construction mode known as C.A.M.P which will allow you to build and craft things anywhere in the world within the game. Bethesda says that you can even trade with other survivors in the game.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Australian Release Date
The Resident Evil 2 Remake Australian release date is January 25, 2019. The game will be available to play on both the PS4 and Xbox One.
Capcom says “Twenty years later, the new Resident Evil 2 sees the nightmare return, now with unprecedented levels of immersion as seen in last year’s acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard. With Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine powering a new photorealistic style, the characters themselves appear sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect. Zombies now react in real time as they take instant visible damage, making every bullet from the player count. Stunning lighting brings the familiar rooms and corridors of Raccoon City Police Department to new life. Players will feel they’re in the shoes of heroes Leon and Claire, terrified to step out of the light for fear of what flesh-eating nightmares might await them in the darkness.“
A trailer for the game was announced at this years E3 2018 event.
