To celebrate the upcoming release of the Onslaught DLC Map Pack for Call of Duty Ghosts which is due to drop on January 28th, Activision and Infinity Ward have announced a Double XP Weekend starting tonight until Monday 27th.

Onslaught is the first downloadable content pack available for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Take the fight onto four small to medium Multiplayer maps: Fog, Bayview, Containment, and Ignition, a reimagining of the classic map Scrapyard from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Players also gain access to the Maverick, an all-new dual purpose Assault Rifle & Sniper Rifle.

The Extinction storyline continues with Episode 1: Nightfall, the first installment in a four-part episodic narrative. Explore a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness and learn more about the origins of the alien threat. Episode 1: Nightfall features two all-new species of aliens and an exclusive weapon.

Have a great weekend Ghosts!

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 – Double XP This Weekend


Treyarch and Activision has announced a DOUBLE XP Weekend this weekend from July 26th through to July 29th on all platforms. This means those who are near Prestige Master can boost up that little bit quicker, campers can camp longer for more points and those who favour tactical insertions and kill streak boosting must be ejaculating as we speak!

Almost everyone under the age of 18 on Call of Duty can get excited about a DOUBLE XP Weekend – it might even make your balls drop!

So why the special occassion – well the latest Map Pack “Vengeance” might just be winging its way to the PS3 since it’s been available on the Xbox 360 for a few weeks now. We rated the collection of new content a decent 8/10:

As a complete package you get two really great multiplayer maps with Rush and UpLink – and the best Zombies map to date with Buried. It’s a real shame that Cove is so small and Detour is so awful, but overall it’s still a worthy package for 1200 MS Points.

Have fun this weekend!

Black Ops 2 – Double XP This Weekend


When you next fire up Black Ops 2 on your console, a huge prompt will remind you of the Double XP weekend event so there is no excuse for forgetting soldiers…

The next Map Pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, “Vengeance” will be available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace from July 2nd and brings with it four new multiplayer maps, a new bonus weapon for Zombies, and a new Zombie playground to get stuck into!

Check out the recent trailer below:


INSANE Bargain Alert – Far Cry 3 Reduced on UK Games on Demand


Not only is Xbox LIVE Gold ‘Free’ this weekend in the UK for non-subscribers, but it includes Double XP on Gears of War: Judgment, Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3. If that’s not enough – if you’re yet to even own Far Cry 3 (or you shamefully traded it in) it has been marked down this weekend on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace to £14.99. Shockingly much cheaper than buying new at retail this weekend!

ThisisXbox rated Far Cry 3 9/10 in our review last year:

Ubisoft delivers an intense and action-packed open world first-person-shooter with the recently released Far Cry 3. Straight from the offset you are thrown into a turmoil environment where your survival instincts are tested against a deadly pirate warlord – your goal is primarily just to escape, and then the deeper, more consequential story begins as you pack yourself off on a journey of discovery.

Even though Far Cry 3 has Double XP this weekend, multiplayer functionality will be unlocked across all Xbox games, including recent releases…

…Have a great weekend ahead and look out for our review of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon which is out now on the Xbox LIVE Arcade.
