To celebrate GWG’s two year anniversary Microsoft have announced that we’ll be getting two Xbox One games every month from now on.
What do you think of this months offerings?
What Minecraft, as great as it undoubtedly is, misses, what is actually misses; are guns. A while ago now, Exato Game Studios promised to put that right with an Xbox release of their PC hit, Guncraft.
Well, it’s been a wee-while and finally, Exato are in a position to announce a release date. There’s just one teeny problem.
The PC community have loved Guncraft. So much so, that Exato decided to release the game, with some bells and whistles on it, for the Xbox 360. That’s right, the 360.
To this end, Guncraft: Blocked and Loaded will release finally on the 14th of July (I double-checked), this year. But only on the 360.
The Xbox version will get the following features over it’s older PC cousin.
- Exclusive Xbox Live maps All PC add-on content and two-player split screen local multiplayer Player controlled vehicles, perks, killstreaks, class load-outs, clan system and ranks Weapon, level and character customisation Outlandish game modes such as, Lava Survival, Onslaught and Spleef where you have to mine the blocks under players to score kills A leveling system with rewards, all the way to level 550. A new tutorial system High-resolution models with an unlockable aesthetics system featuring 300 pieces of unique gear to customise your characters, giving over 4 billion combinations
Shoot your way through dozens of maps in the traditional deathmatch and team deathmatch modes as well.
Guncraft: Blocked and Loaded is set for release on the 14th of July on Xbox Live for 360.
Activision released the following video showcasing both the co-op campaign and Cyber Core tutorial.
Take a deep dive into the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 cooperative campaign with the Cyber Core tutorial and an extended cut from “Ramses Station”. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is a dark, gritty future where a new breed of Black Ops soldier emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the cutting-edge military technology that define the future of combat.
Designed for four-player online co-op or solo play, players will encounter epic cinematic moments and open-area gameplay, allowing players to approach the game with a different strategy each time they play. And now your campaign character is completely customisable: from weapons and loadouts, to abilities and outfits, all with full progression systems and a personalised armoury to show off accomplishments.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III is released on Friday November 6th for PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Following the announcement of Destiny: The Taken King by Activision at E3, we can now share with everyone the trailer.

Arm yourself with new abilities, weapons and gear as you prepare to do battle with the Taken hordes and finally Oryx himself!

As predicted on the This Is Xbox podcast, Microsoft have just announced Backwards Compatability.
You’ll be able to take advantage of all of the Xbox One features and Xbox One Preview members will be able to access the feature TODAY. More access will be become available during the year.
Well…what an evening it’s been so far!
Bonnie Ross from 343 Industries opened the show and wastes no time in letting the crowd know about the fact that there are plenty of awesome games coming to the Xbox One in 2015, taking a shot at Playstation saying that Xbox have the best exclusive games THIS year!
Before we know it, Halo 5: Guardians gameplay is shown off, and it looks fantastic. Josh Holmes, Executive Producer then came on to talk about seamless co-op and introduces Warzone. Hopefully we’ll see more info about that soon, but here is a cool trailer to check out:
Next up, a World Premiere of ReCore, a first party title from the legendary creator Keiji Inafune and the makers of Metroid Prime. As one of the last remaining humans, forge friendships with courageous robot companions and lead them on an epic adventure through a mysterious, dynamic world.
Then came some news that many have been waiting for since the Xbox One was first announced… Backwards Compatability. Even better news is that it’s available to Xbox Live Preview Members right now. Here is a list of games available.
Next Phil Spencer announced a new Elite Xbox One Controller that allows you to swap out features, change the analog sticks, bumpers and D-pad as you wish. There are also hair-trigger locks and the D-pad has been replaced by a textured rolling pad.
Todd Howard then came on stage to give us a good look at Fallout 4. After gameplay footage was shown it was revealed that PC Mods would be usable within the game on Xbox One.
We all like a nice bit of speculation and gossip and the latest rumour going around is that Titanfall will be joining the already extensive list of free to play games in the EA Access vault.
Well I can confirm that this indeed does look like the case, as even though it’s not appearing in the Vault if you search for it via the game store you can download and play it for free. Also you are no longer required to have the disc in your console if you wish to play, again confirming that the license key is now part of the free games in the vault.
This is great news for EA Access owners that don’t yet have this game as with the season pass becoming free to celebrate the games anniversary all the DLC for this great game is also yours to have for nothing.
EA are yet to comment but it looks like one of the announcements EA was going to make at E3 is already out of the bag.
EA Access is the exclusive subscription service where you receive discounts on EA games, but also have access to the vault, a selection of the best EA games that are free to play and download. Membership will also grant you early access to upcoming titles, such as the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront.
