Hitman enjoys life on the farm in his latest episode.

If you’re a keen player of the Hitman game and haven’t already noticed, the latest episode is now available to download. Hitman: Episode 5 – Colorado is the penultimate Episode to come from Square Enix and Io Interactive and takes Agent 47 to a Colorado farm compound that has been converted into a private militia training camp. Here you will need to infiltrate the farm and locate and take out four targets.

Michael Vogt, lead writer of HITMAN explained “This is the point where the events of the previous episodes will really start to make sense. In Episode 5, the story steps into the foreground and provides a much clearer picture of what has been unfolding and where the story is heading. We hope players don’t reveal too many spoilers online, but at the same time I’m excited to hear the reactions to the revelations of this episode. It paves the way for an intriguing and rewarding season finale.”

As expected Episode 5 brings with it all-new opportunities and disguises, and with 70 different challenges unlocking brand new gear, weapons, and items, this episode will not only rewards players with some amazing equipment but will also reveal major story revelations as the season builds towards a thrilling climax. So we have been to Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok and now Colorado. The season finale in Japan will arrive later in 2016. For further information about this and previous Episodes check out the Official Hitman site.

New Battlefield 1 Trailer reveals Single Player Campaign

Check out the latest Battlefield 1 trailer to be released, this time focussing on the Single Player Campaign. However unlike previous Battlefield games, this single player story in Battlefield 1 actually takes you through several different perspectives and characters in World War 1. This allows you to experience a truly immersive account of what it was like for the people rather than just the battles.

Whether you’re a young soldier assigned as a tank driver to a British Mark V Tank crew, or the right hand to Lawrence of Arabia or even a pilot going up against the infamous Red Baron, the single player will truly deliver something for everyone.

Battlefield 1 will release worldwide for Xbox One and PC on October 21 (or the 18th if you pre-order the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition). But your next chance to play is coming sooner than that – EA Access* and Origin Access* members can deploy on October 13 when the Play First Trial for Battlefield 1 releases, giving members ten hours of game time at the dawn of all-out war. For further information about any of the above or Battlefield 1 in general, check out the Official Website.

Suicide Squad meets Injustice 2

For some strange reason we haven’t done much coverage of the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios sequel Injustice 2. So here is a little recap for everyone, along with the latest trailer to be released containing two of my favorite members of the Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn and Deadshot.

Based on the original Injustice: Gods Among Us, Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title’s larger-than-life showdowns.  Every battle defines you in a game where players personalise iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game.  For the first time gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.

Continuing the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us, Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime.  In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk. Offering the biggest DC roster ever in a fighting game, from classic fan favourites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd.  Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.

So back to business and the latest announcement reveals Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn and Deadshot squaring off against one another. Harley Quinn returns with her signature attitude and some new tricks up her sleeve, while expert marksman Deadshot arrives for his console debut in the series.

Injustice 2 will be available for the Xbox One in 2017, but in the meantime if you want to find out more information stay tuned to TiX or check out the games Official Website.

Titanfall 2 technical tests dropping on to Xbox One

Today Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts have announced that they will be holding two technical tests for Titanfall 2 over the coming weekends. These technical tests will allow fans to get their hands on some of the new features and content within the game whilst helping the team at Respawn to test the backend server infrastructure before the official game launch on October 28th.

Testing will start this Friday, August 19th – 21st and will include two multiplayer modes over two new maps. The modes and maps are as follows;

MODES

  • Bounty Hunt (5v5): A brand new mode that pits Pilots and their teammates against an opposing team as well as the Remnant Fleet. Earn bonuses by killing grunts and enemies, but make sure and deposit all your points at the bank between waves without getting killed.
  • Pilots vs. Pilots (8v8): Players can be the best Pilot on the Frontier and put their combat and mobility skills to the ultimate test in this classic 8 vs 8 Pilots only mode.

MAPS

  • Boomtown: A secret underground IMC facility where the latest in R&D is put to the test. In this facility Pilots can use the many peaked roofs to use as cover against combatants below. With tight lanes through the middle, Titans can also be easily ambushed.
  • Homestead: The IMC have claimed Imminent Domain on a small commune’s plot of land. With a series of raised, rocky plateaus and a river running down the middle, Pilots are mostly safe from Titans among the rocks and trees but they also can duck into the caves and building when needed. However, the Titans control the large rolling fields

The second technical test will then be held the following weekend, August 26th – 28th and will include all the content from the previous weekend but will also include another brand new mode and map. Details on the new mode and map are as follows;

MODE

  • Amped Hardpoint (6v6): A new twist on Hardpoint Domination from the original game; now defending a Hardpoint will let you amp it, giving your team double score. Team work is the key to securing victory.

MAP

  • Forward Base Kodai: Militia forces have taken over an IMC substation and set up a forward operating base. Pilots can find safety from Titans in the hallways and chambers of the main building, while Titans can walk over the roof to get a better view of the action.

So that’s the maps and modes but what about the Titans themselves? During the technical tests all players will have access to two brand new Titans: Ion and Scorch and several Pilot technical abilities including Grapple, Holo Point and Pulse Blade will be available. Also a variety of deadly weapons will be available to try out including the Alternator, a dual-barrel SMG and the Mastiff, a horizontal spread shotgun.

So the question is how do you take part in the technical tests?

  • Turn on your Xbox One and log in to your Xbox Live account.
  • Go to the Xbox One Store, select “Games,” then select “Search All Games.”
  • In the search field, type in “Titanfall 2”
  • Select “Titanfall 2 Multiplayer Tech Test” from the search results and then click “Download.”
  • Once the download and installation process is complete, click “Start” to begin.

For further information about the technical tests then check out the official Titanfall 2 Website, otherwise we will see you on the battlefield pilot. Prepare for Titanfall.

Fantasy digital board game Armello coming to Xbox One

Armello, the fantasy board game from League of Geeks is finally coming to the Xbox One. Already enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of PC and PS4 gamers Armello is a swashbuckling adventure that combines RPG elements with the strategic play of card and board games, creating a personal, story-fuelled experience.

You, play as a ‘Hero’ from one of the four animal clans: Rat, Rabbit, Bear or Wolf, navigating your fully animated 3D character across the board with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. Quest, scheme, explore, Vanquish monsters, perform the Mad King’s royal edicts, and face off against other players in this epic adventure.

But it doesn’t end there and alongside the games release on August 30th, League of Geeks will also be releasing the first DLC for Armello, titled The Usurpers Hero Pack. The Usurpers Hero Pack will introduces four new playable characters, one from each of the four animal clans, into the game bringing the total number of heroes up to 12. Each character has their own unique stats and Hero Powers, further diversifying the playstyles and strategies of the core game.

The Usurpers Hero Pack includes:

  • Elyssia, Wardress of Warrens: A hero of the Rabbit Clan who can permanently fortify settlements with her “Architect” ability, granting Elyssia greater control of the daily gold reward for holding settlements. While not the strongest in straightforward fights, her high Wits stat and ability to monopolize Armello’s economy make her very dangerous.
  • Magna, the Unbroken: A tank-like Wolf Clan member with the Hero Power, “Shield Maiden,” which allows her to reflect attacks. Magna’s high Body and Fight stats in combination with Shield Maiden is ideally suited for players who focus on combat.
  • Ghor, The Wyldkin: A Bear Clan hero whose magic draws strength from forests. His Hero Power, “Conduit,” allows him to cast spells for one less magic per adjacent forest, and enables him to cast to any woodland tiles on the board. This powerful ability, is ideal for stealthy spell play.
  • Sargon, The Death Teller: The latest addition to the Rat Clan has evenly balanced stats, but his Hero Power, “Veil Gazer,” makes him a very appealing choice to cerebral players. Sargon has the ability to see cards before they’re drawn, giving him a strategic advantage over every other character.

In addition to the new heroes, each of the four animal clans also receives a new Clan Ring, which can be equipped to provide benefits and powerful boosts to the base stats of a hero.

Armello and the Unsurpers Hero Pack DLC will both release for the Xbox One on the 30th August, priced at $19.99 & $9.99 accordingly. For further information on the game and the up and coming DLC, check out the Official Game Site.

Online Multiplayer coming to The Living Dungeon

It was back in February that I got my hands on RadiationBurns The Living Dungeon game and I loved it. It was refreshing to get a turn-based strategy game on the Xbox One that brought back my days of playing games like Heroes Quest and Space Hulk and who executed it really well. However there was one thing missing and that was online multiplayer. This was one subject that was asked my many of the players of the game and Radiationburn rather than closing it ears and doors have listened and are about to deliver.

Now it’s ok to slaughter enemies and friends who are sitting on the couch next to you but sometimes this is just not possible and therefore there is nothing better than picking on total strangers via online multiplayer and our friends at Radiationburn have worked tirelessly to deliver this. We can expect The Living Dungeon to get online multiplayer for the Xbox One later this month but the date is still to be confirmed. However once we know for sure you will be the first to know.

For more information about The Living Dungeon and our thoughts and opinions about it why don’t you check out my review here. Otherwise sit tight and I look forward to facing you all in The Living Dungeon Online.
