New Game+ confirmed for The Witcher 3 as final piece of DLC

The latest and final batch of the 16 free DLC pieces from CD Projekt Red has been announced today via Twitter and could well be a new lease of life to the title for those with a full completion under their belts. "New Game+" is to be added to The Witcher 3 according to a statement posted on Twitter today. Unfortunately the DLC isn't quite ready just yet, with the studio having stated that it currently needs a bit more time.

Should you feel slightly unsure of what "New Game+" actually is. You may recall something similar when playing a title such as Borderlands 2 (known as "True Vault Hunter Mode"), where upon completion you are offered a chance to re-start the game again at the same level you completed it, carrying all inventory items, money and proficiencies with you from the your first playthrough.

WWE 2K16 pre-order bonus sees Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator

I'm not quite sure what of this to be honest. Arnold Schwarzenegger (or more specifically, The Terminator) has been added to the WWE 2K16 line-up as a pre order bonus according to a press release from publisher 2K. Players who pre-order this years entry from any participating retailers will have the option to play one of two available T-800s. The first one is from the original Terminator movie back in 1984, with Terminator 2: Judgement Day being the second option.

God of War III: Remastered Review - Excellent/Pointless

God of War III is still an excellent title in the action genre pantheon. Having played through the HD makeovers of the original two games earlier this year, I was well placed to get stuck into God of War III again and it's aged wonderfully over the last five years.

If you enjoyed God of War 1 and 2 on PS2, but found yourself picking up an Xbox 360 over a PS3 last-gen (thus missing out on God of War III), you'll certainly want to take a look at this remastered edition if you now own a PS4. This is a grand finale to the main trilogy that any action fan deserves to experience and there are certainly cases to be made that GoWIII is the best entry to the series.

God of War III: Remastered Review - Excellent/Pointless

For anyone with a PS3 who didn't get around to playing the game, you too may want to consider this polished version at some point. Owners of the original will want to listen up now too. As you may have gathered by this review's title, there really isn't much here to encourage a second purchase.

Rare(ish) Marth Amiibo available from £9.92

Been looking for a Marth Amiibo? Well, Amazon Prime members, stop watching Mad Men for five minutes and grab one of these for just £9.92. Non-Prime members can pick up one for £11.95.

I'm pretty sure the Marth Amiibo was rare at some point. Not as much nowadays apparently as they can be found on ebay for between £15 and £20. Naturally, this Amazon deal is the best option by far as they're selling them under the RRP. And they won't be some dodgy knock-off with droopy faces.

F1 2015 Steam key drops to £13.29

The F1 2015 launch on PC will be for many gamers very reminiscent of the Batman: Arkham Knight launch. It's currently taking a little bit of a bashing on Steam for its unexpected crashes (no pun intended) and lag. But, this all seems extremely varied in the same way Batman: Arkham Knight was received. In short, it's working for some but an equal number are not happy at all.

That said, if you're happy to take a bit of a gamble then £13.29 is an incredible price for this newly released title.

The game mode strip down this year by Codemasters with F1 2015 is evidently step one of many for a reboot of the popular franchise. Where modes have been taken, major improvements have been made. A whole new game engine giving advanced visuals and handling makes F1 2015 the best yet. - F1 2015 Review | Let's torque about this new direction

Call of Duty: Black Ops Steam key drops to £4.99 at CDKeys

Black Ops packs perhaps the best Call of Duty campaign yet, with an emphasis on story and characters, not just spectacle and set-pieces. The multiplayer is brilliant, bolstered by the inclusion of COD Points and Wager Matches, not to mention the Zombie mode featuring Fidel Castro and friends. It's Treyarch's best game to date, even if they continue to overlook Call of Duty's less enjoyed quirks, like waves of reloading enemies and noob-toobs. - Call of Duty: Black Ops Review | It's On!

Call of Duty: Black Ops was the last title from the franchise that I thoroughly enjoyed before the monotony kicked in. It's very rare that we see CoD titles drop in price and £4.99 is more than a worthy price tag for this addition. Remember to use that 5% discount code from their Facebook page to knock off those all important pennies.

The keyboard and mouse combination - is console gaming evolving?

The hardcore gaming option, the ever faithful keyboard and mouse combination. You ask any PC gamer, any hardcore PC gamer why they don't opt to use a game controller whilst playing games such as Counter Strike or Battlefield 4 when gaming on their PC. Speed and accuracy will, amongst other benefits always top the pile. I mean how can one possibly line up a target on Battlefield 4 with a controller as precisely as they would with that keyboard and mouse combination, It's just not viable is it?

This October sees the release of the Tactical Assault Commander for the Playstation 4, housing both a d-pad and PlayStation button, the Tactical Assault Commander will also come with arrow keys, a snipe key, a quick key, and a walk key and could quite easily become the combination FPS hungry PS4 players crave.

The keyboard and mouse combination - is console gaming evolving?

It was just 4 days ago that we reported to you the news of Microsoft allegedly working to work in keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox One. It's an interesting addition to consoles. Since the start of gaming, PC players have operated their gaming experiences with the keyboard and mouse, with console gamers always having been known to master their games with a controller, it's just how it is.

Street Fighter V beta extended after terrible start

Many gamers (including most of the Dealspwn team) were planning on getting stuck into the PS4 beta for Street Fighter V over the weekend, but those plans were scuppered by Capcom mere minutes into launch. On Friday afternoon, the fighting game's beta was taken offline for maintenance and has struggled to get back online throughout the weekend.

We were planning on bringing you a team roundtable impressions piece on the game, but you may have to wait a while as collectively, we've mainly just seen the title and loading screens in action. The beta was due to finish tomorrow, but Capcom have confirmed [via Twitter] that the beta will be extended, although by how much remains unknown.

Sunset Overdrive only £16.82 at VideoGameBox

Sunset Overdrive brings the fun. Though Insomniac's inexperience with open-world games leads to inconsistent mission design and a few oversights, its infectious energy, breathtaking traversal, silly weapons and violently colourful playground make for a brilliant way to blow off steam. - Sunset Overdrive Review | Xbox Fun

I'm pretty sure this is one of, if not the lowest price we have seen for Sunset Overdrive. It's definitely worth noting that VideoGameBox do state this as the EU version, but it will work fine on your UK console. Use code 'VGBDISCOUNT' to drop the listed price.

PS4 console + 2 games + 3 months PlayStation Plus only £289.95

Frankly, we can't believe this deal is still in stock from yesterday. It's certainly looking like time to get off the fence potential PS4 buyers! For £289.95 you can get a Black of White 500GB PS4 console, two games from a selection and three months of PlayStation + membership for a very tasty £289.95.

The games to choose from include The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, God of War III Remastered, LittleBigPlanet 3, DriveClub, The Last of Us: Remastered, The Order: 1886, Infamous: Second Son and Killzone: Shadow Fall. Note: As you're going through the steps, you should consider taking advantage of the Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain offer for an extra £26.86 as that's over a tenner cheaper than the best preorder we can find. Arkham Knight can be bundled in too for just under £30 (£32.85 next best deal).

Bag Dragon Age: Inquisition from as little as £16

We'd almost forgotten about Dragon Age: Inquisition given that all our attention as of late had been distracted by The Witcher 3 and The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, but that doesn't stop us appreciating a bargain when we see one. Should you have already conquered TW3 or TESO you should definitely check out Dragon Age: Inquisition, especially at these great prices.

Forget the disappointments of the previous instalment – BioWare are back on top form with Dragon Age: Inquisition. With huge expansive locations to explore, a rich and detailed world to be immersed in, and a branching narrative that has the player make tough choices, it is not only one of the best RPGs of the year, but a strong last-minute contender for game of the year. - Dragon Age: Inquisition Review | BioWare’s Redemption

Watch 9 minutes gameplay footage of Until Dawn

Originally intended for the Playstation 3, Until Dawn finally makes it's Playstation 4 release on 28th August with its 90's chick flick horror-esque approach. On the anniversary of their friends disappearance, Ashley, Chris, Emily, Jessica, Josh, Matt, Mike, and Sam spend the night in a log cabin, unaware they are being hunted by a serial killer (honestly, why would you?).

You can check out the 9 minutes of gameplay footage below...

Jon previewed Until Dawn for us last August after getting his hands on the game for a 45 minute gameplay session at Gamescon, after which telling us:

"Until Dawn is a very different kind of horror game, in that it's halfway between a choose-your-own-adventure novel, David Cage cinematic QTE-fest and a Saw film. A good Saw film, if you can imagine that.
