Once more unto the breach – Rainbow Six Siege launch trailer


I am stupidly excited for the launch of Rainbow Six Siege… Terrorist Hunt alone makes Ubisoft’s next title one of my most wanted titles of the year. I poured countless hours into Vegas’ version – nights became days, minutes became hours – and I loved every moment of it.

If you like intense tactical fights rather than the standard Call of Duty chaos, then Rainbow Six Siege could be right up your street – and don’t forget – if you purchase the game on Xbox One, rather than that other console, then you get a digital copy of Rainbow Six Vegas and Vegas 2 via backwards compatibility, how’s that for an incentive!

Grab your closest friends and head once more unto the breach.

Rainbow Six Siege: Back in beta


Rainbow Six Siege goes into open beta next week from November 25-29. This will be a final stress test before the game launches on December 1.

If you were lucky enough to get into the closed beta then you won’t need to re-download anything, well unless you deleted the file, and as an extra bonus you will be able to play the open beta a day early! For everyone else, the download goes live on November 23.

The open beta includes access to 14 operators, three maps – Hereford, House and Kanal – the PvP modes Bomb and Secure Area, and the PvE Terrorist Hunt – Disarm Bomb.


Idris Elba ask you to “Siege the day”


Idris Elba heads up the latest TV spot for Rainbow Six Siege. The live action emotive trailer captures the essence of a Siege match on a recreation of the House map. Elba is also the star of an upcoming new series, “The Laws of Siege”, which focuses on the explosive and destructive side of Siege.

Ubisoft have already run a closed beta for those that had pre-ordered the title, and plan to run an open beta from November 25-29, with the game set to launch December 1.

I. Am. Excited!


Take a Wild Run with The Crew


Ubisoft’s ambitious racer, The Crew, is about to get wild.

The Wild Run expansion is available to download now, and the Wild Run edition will be available in stores at the end of the week. To get the game ready for this exciting new expansion, the standard game has an update that will enhance graphics, introduce new lighting effects and a new weather system, plus adapt several areas of the games specifically for the new vehicles.

Check out the launch trailer below.

ZOMBI shuffles on to store shelves

Rainbow Six Siege flashes its season pass


What happens if your business plan is for free DLC? You release a reasonably priced season pass that offers early access and premium content that enriches your online experience.

Priced at £23.99, the pass gives you a year-long premium membership and offers early access to the new operators – you don’t even have to ‘earn’ them either, with the pass granting instant access to their services. You will also gain a permanent XP boost so you should get to the good stuff long before other players that haven’t purchased the pass.

Here’s the official ‘back of the box’ content for the pass:


    Seven day exclusive early access to the eight new operators that you can instantly add to your roster upon their release Permanent 5% Renown boost to allow you to unlock content quicker The exclusive Season Pass Porter weapon skin The Safari Bundle of five weapons skins Two extra daily Renown-earning challenges 600 R6 Credits that can be used to purchase additional in-game content

Rainbow Six Siege brings four seasons of free content


Ubisoft have revealed their year one plans for Rainbow Six Siege’s DLC. The year will be split into quarters (go figure) and each ‘season’ will include a variety of free content – from maps to cosmetic items.

As you can see from the roadmap visual, there’s a good variety of content coming to Siege – The Witcher 3 had a great DLC plan too, and Ubisoft have easily stepped up to the DLC party, with Halo 5 also following a similar path – could this be the new trend for DLC? With so many awesome games coming thick and fast, one would hope that free DLC plans are what developers and publishers are now striving toward to get consumers to go with their game over a rival.

While maps and games modes for Siege will be immediately playable upon their release, weapons, operators and skins will need to be unlocked in a similar way to other ingame items – with earned renown points. This also isn’t the end of any paid plans for Siege, a “small number of premium skins” will be available to those who want to part with their pennies.

With Siege out at the beginning of December, we only need to wait a month before the first season kicks off… Operation Black Ice…

Just Dance 2016 review


Just Dance 2016 returns to consoles and it’s as bright and bold as ever. Grab a headband, some neon leggings and limber up while I tell you how the world most popular dance game as managed to get even better.

I probably don’t need to explain to you what Just Dance is, but I’m going to anyway. Just Dance 2016 involves choosing yourself a music track ranging from today hits to old school classics and then doing your best to mirror the dance moves you see on screen, the more accurate you are the higher the score.

The game comes with 44 songs for you to dance along to, with hits from Kelly Clarkson, Meghan Trainor and Katy Perry. There are also some classics including Summer Nights from Grease and even a special remix of the Angry Birds theme tune. All of the songs are very well chosen, perfect for parties and also great for working out too.

What Just Dance does best is theme each dance very well with each song, as you would expect, the Angry Bird theme tune sees you trying to keep in time with Angry Birds while ‘dancing’ to the William Tell Overture will have you racing horses against your friends. It’s brilliant fun and will have people of all ages joining in. Being able to dance with others for certain routines is a lot of fun, our rendition of Summer Nights would have even had Craig Revell Horwood out of his seat applauding.

Some of the routines are tougher than others but because of the way the videos are presented you ultimately just end up having a lot of fun with the game. Once you have competed a routine you’ll see a playback of you dancing which you can share with the » Continue Reading.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate review


The Industrial revolution has chugged into the world of Assassin’s Creed as the series takes to the Victorian streets of London. With iconic characters like Dickens and Darwin, and famous London landmarks like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, can Syndicate restore faith in the series that Unity lost?

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Assassin’s Creed, although I’m happy to admit that the series lost me slightly with III and IV. Being a UK resident, the charms of Syndicate’s Victorian London are a huge draw, but can the series deliver a story that ties the present day with the past?

Unfortunately the present day is a series of cutscenes that you watch via a CCTV drone. It makes for a disjointed experience, with Syndicate playing more like a period piece. To its credit, the present day does include a great cliffhanger; I just craved to be able to explore the present day as a ‘Desmond’ character or something similar to Black Flag’s missions. Instead you are a nameless initiate. The Templars are searching Victorian London for a piece of Eden – the Shroud – and the Assassins have turned to you to look over the memories of twin assassins Jacob and Evie Frye.

London is under the control of the Templar Grand Master, Crawford Starrick, a man who controls London’s industry and the Blighters gang; nothing goes on without his knowledge. You set about breaking his grip by taking down his lieutenants and freeing the boroughs of the city, although you need only release three of them to progress the story. This direct approach is how Jacob thinks the twins should go about freeing London but Evie wants to go directly after the Shroud – this places a burden on their relationship, and like any good sibling rivalry, the pair » Continue Reading.
