Hardline holds onto the loot UK chart


I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t at all bothered at getting Battlefield Hardline, but after reading Greg’s review and hearing how much Dave was enjoying playing at cops and robbers, I buckled and picked it up – damn is it fun.

This week, not only has Hardline held onto the UK chart, but EA’s newest Battlefield title has fended off the attentions of PlayStation’s Bloodborne. Handsome Jack drops by with Borderlands at third while GTA slips further down the chart.

Can Hardline make it three in a row? With little out this week and word spreading fast that Hardline is well worth your time, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it retain the chart.

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending March 28.

Green light as Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious races onto Xbox


Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious, the standalone expansion we announced back in February launched today. The game, developed to promote the up and coming movie Fast and Furious 7 is completely standalone, meaning it introduces you into the beautiful world of Forza Horizon 2  but with a huge injection of Fast and Furious, without the need to own the original game.

The goal of the game is to acquire specific cars by taking part in a series of automotive challenges inspired by the Fast & Furious films. From the 900-hp 1970 Dodge Charger to an armored 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and more, each of the cars in the Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious standalone expansion is both stunningly accurate and amazingly fun to drive.

Whats more you have until April 10th to grab it for free, and there after you will have to pay £7.99 for the pleasure.

So grab the download now, start your engines and lets settle this over a quarter-mile.

Games with Gold doubles up for April


April is just around the corner and so is the next Games with Gold. For April there’s an Easter treat waiting – double the games!

For Xbox One owners there’s Pool Nation FX and Child of Light, while 360 owners double up for four new games. Gears of War Judgment and Terraria will be available from April 1, and from April 16 Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel will be free to Xbox Live Gold members.

That will certainly keep some of you busy for April!

Rainbow Six: Siege – it’s ‘beta’ to pre-order


If you want a sneak peek at what’s in store for the Rainbow Six series, then you best get your pre-order in.

Currently Ubisoft are trialling a closed Alpha test that was only available to PC owners, the Beta however will roll out across platforms.

The Closed Alpha and the Closed Beta will help us to build a stable experience and to playtest game elements on a very large scale. Whether you’re testing early on PC during the closed alpha, or helping us validate the experience once we open on all platforms, we’re looking forward to interacting with you and working together to make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege the best it can be at launch.

The GAME pre-order page notes that Beta codes are due to be distributed from today and that you will need a Uplay account to sign up. If you don’t fancy pre-ordering the game, but would still like the chance to join the close beta, then you can join the ‘waiting list’ after completing a short survey.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved update incoming


Great news for all owners of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. Sierra have announced that an update to the game in the form of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved will be released at the end of the month and if you own Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, your game updates for free.

The contents of the update includes 40 additional adventure mode stages, including boss battles, grid shapes and gameplay types. New super abilities in the form of the Sweeper drone and the Detonator. The level system has also been revised to make progression in the game easier, but if you thought it was to easy in the first place a Hardcore mode has been included, challenging players to complete 20 levels without using a super ability.

For existing owners the game will update to the new version on March 31st, both on Xbox One and Xbox 360. However if you haven’t already bought the game then you can buy the fully updated version from the online store from the 31st.

Check out the trailer below showing the full Dimensions Evolved update in action.

New trailer for up and coming Call of Duty: Advance Warfare DLC


For all you Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare fans the wait is nearly over. At the end of the month the newest DLC Ascendance will be available to download but our friends at Activision have kindly released a new trailer to give us a little taste of what’s to come.

Ascendance is the second of four DLC’s planned for the game and this trailer shows us brand new gameplay, an insight into the 4 new playable maps, the new Exo Zombies episode and the OHM Directed Energy Weapon. The maps, Perplex, Site 244, Climate, and Chop Shop each bring a new dynamic hazard into the game, from toxic pools to apartment complex’s with moving modules. This can create an ever evolving map, add to this the new Exo Grappling ability and players will now be able to get to new vantage points meaning you will need to adapt your gameplay to compete and survive.

The new Exo Zombies episode, Infection, follows the fours survivors as they venture outside the walls of the Atlas Corporation facility. The survivors face new mutations and they head to a nearby town and take refuge. However new weapons are at hand to aid in the fight for survival.

Ascendance launches on Tuesday, March 31 for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Grab some ‘Vintage’ DLC or a free trial of The Crew


If you’re yet to take to the roads of Ubisoft’s MMO racer, then keep an eye on the Xbox Store. Starting tomorrow, you can grab a free trial of The Crew, which will allow you to experience all the game has to offer for two hours. Any progress you make in the trial will be saved and carried over to the full games should you decide to purchase a copy.

If you have already picked up the game then there’s something for you too – the Vintage Car Pack and Vintage Car Update.

The DLC pack come with three new classic cars – Chervrolet Corvette C2, Chevrolet Corvette C3 and Spyker C8 Aileron – while the free update includes a new PvP mode, four new faction missions, new tuning specs, vintage stickers and a wooden interior to customise your cars with.

By using your SHiFT account, you can get some sweet unlocks that include exclusive weapons, heads, and skins to use in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Deals with Gold Three is the magic number


After last week’s poor showing of titles receiving the ‘Deals with Gold’ treatment, I’m happy to say that there’s much better choice this week, although don’t get too excited, the savings are hardly anything to jump up and down about!

The best deal for Xbox One this week is for addictive number puzzler Threes! and Pinball FX2 fans will be happy about a great saving on the South Park table.

As always, there’s plenty to choose from if you are still rocking your Xbox 360 – even if some of the titles are rather old now.

The deals are available until March 30. Remember to check your local territory for availability and pricing.

EA’s cops and robbers make off with the UK chart


Battlefield and Final Fantasy fight it out for supremacy in the UK chart this week, I can’t say I’m surprised by Battlefield taking the top spot – it was sold out in several of my local stores! It’s great to see Final Fantasy placing so highly, although I wonder how many of the sales were from folk that just wanted to get access to the Final Fantasy 15: Episode Duscae demo.

I’ve been playing both titles over the weekend and they’re certainly worth your pennies. Hardline’s campaign is a welcome change of pace from the combat that the previous titles focused on and the multiplayer mode Hotwire is an insane amount of fun, particularly if you’re playing with mates.

Final Fantasy has gone the other way and brings a more combat focused RPG. While it’s slightly juxtaposed, the story is just as griping and had me wanting more!

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending March 21.
