Trackmania Turbo release dated


The latest incarnation of the Trackmania franchise was announced a few weeks ago, for Xbox One, and even in it’s early phases, it looks great. Well, developer Nadeo and publisher, Ubisoft are ready to release this petrol-filled thrill-ride to the world.

Trackmania Turbo is a combination of toy car fantasy and huge scale. The type of scale where helicopters are used to simply hold up advertising signage. The game will feature a track builder as well as more than 200 head-spinning, hurl-inducing tracks set across four stunning environments. Rev up and scream away in Rollercoaster Lagoon, International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift and Valley Down & Dirty.

When is all of this fuel-filled insanity coming to Xbox One? I’m glad you asked, as the release date has been set at the 25th of March.

Before you buckle up and put your foot down though, have a look at the new trailer, a cautionary tale of speed and skill.

Shots of the new Rainbow Six: Siege map, releasing as part of Operation Black Ice, have been released by Ubisoft France today.

In the Baffin Bay, a luxury yacht has crashed into an iceberg breaching the hull. Rainbow has been sent to secure the stranded vessel as an unidentified submarine has docked near the vessel.

“Yacht” is the centrepiece of the first of four free downloadable content packs for Siege, along with two new beastly looking operators from the Canadian Joint Task Force.

If you don’t hear from us for a few weeks, you’ll know where we’ll be.

Operation Black Ice releases tomorrow on Xbox One.

Rainbow Six Siege goes pro


Rainbow Six Siege is a firm favourite among the TiX team – which we affectionately call team Blue on Blue – we even have our own ‘pro’ player, but I don’t think you’ll be seeing Max on the newly announced pro league anytime soon.

Ubisoft have partnered with Xbox and ESL for the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League global competition. The league begins in the first week of March 2016 and will be available to both causal and aspiring pro players to compete – maybe there is hope for Max – games will be played across North America and Europe via PC and Xbox One with a combined prize pool of $100,000.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege was built from the ground up with competition in mind,” said Xavier Marquis, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege creative director, Ubisoft Montreal. “We’re excited to partner with ESL, one of the biggest names in eSports, to deliver a league for Rainbow Six Siege fans to compete and enjoy the game they love.

The finals will take place between the top teams at a live event with $50,000 up for grabs. If you fancy taking a shot at the league then check out the official page over on Rainbow Six Siege’s website.
