We're still some way away from its release, but this offer for a physical PC copy of Garden Warfare 2 is the cheapest around by £8. While the gameplay and various modes will mostly remain the same, there are a number of changes elsewhere that were announced at this year's Gamescom. Multiple new classes will be available for both plants and zombies, solo and co-op play will be introduced, and the brand new Backyard Battleground will act as a social hub along with daily missions to complete. As long as the gameplay is as fun as it in its predecessor, we expect Garden Warfare 2 will be yet another great team-based shooter.
Be sure to read up on our EA Gamescom 2015 Presentation Roundtable Impressions for more thoughts on Garden Warfare 2 and other upcoming EA titles.
Well, we didn't see this one coming. Slightly Mad Studios, most famous for developing the well-received Project Cars racing sim, are turning their hands to the skies. The Red Bull Air Race series has been growing in popularity in recent years as daredevil pilots compete for the best times as they weave between airgates and dive under bridges around famous cities the world over.
Slightly Mad Studios are partnering with Wing Racers Sports Games GmbH and will be releasing the game exclusively on PC in 2016. Take a look at the first trailer to see some very polished in-game engine graphics.Click here to see the trailer.

We've got more story details straight from 2K for you after the jump.Click here to read more...

Project CARS is beautiful, hard but beautiful. I played it recently and thinking I possess certain skills in racing games, Project CARS caused me serious concern with its ability to have me seriously calculating every move carefully. It really is a true driving simulator.
A simulator with soul, Project CARS strips the bloat out of the racing genre to focus on what truly matters: the cars, handling, tracks and exhilaration of real driving. Sensational weather effects and impressive visuals make it well worth the wait. - Project CARS Review | Sunshine After The Rain
As far as classic RTS titles go, you won't find better than the Command & Conquer franchise. Originally developed by Westwood Studios, Command and Conquer was taken over by Electronic Arts in 1998 before they eventually went on to close down the studio in 2003.
I personally spent a lot of time back in the late nineties and early 2000 playing both this and Age of Empires 2 (oh, and America, does anybody remember that?).
According to redalert.com Command and Conquer is a fully free to play title. If you don't already own it, you really should.

After years of rumours, the classic property tycoon title Constructor is getting a HD remake by its creators at 3Systems. Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC, we even have an official release date of January 29, 2016. It is being labeled as a "reimagining" of the original PC game released in 1997, where players are charged with building up a property empire of business and rented housing, while hiring degenerates to harass and drive their rivals out of business.
"Constructor is a game I took great joy in creating, and having the chance to delve into its universe once again has been incredible," said development head John Twiddy in a press release issued today. "A whole generation adored the original. I, along with the original collaborators, am delighted to be showcasing Constructor’s unique charm to a whole new audience."
I'll admit that I wasn't very good at Constructor back in the day, but I did enjoy its unique personality in-between all the hippies coming along and ruining my properties. We suspect we'll learn more about Constructor HD next week when Gamescom is in full swing.
My sincerest apologies for the lateness of this review, but as I was on holiday during its release I’ve only just gotten round to reviewing it. Anyway, here’s the usual housekeeping – if you’ve missed our other reviews, you can get up to speed by reading them here: Episode 1: Iron From Ice, Episode Two: The Lost Lords, Episode 3: The Sword In The Darkness, and Episode 4: Sons of Winter. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.
While the action begins in a rather tense fashion (which in understandable given the ending to episode 4) the linearity of proceedings early on take away any true feeling of choice. This is yet another example of how the established timeline of the show disrupts anything that could happen in the game, but thankfully once we get past the first chapter the narrative opens up by diverging into uncharted waters. If Episode 4 set up the board for the final charge, Episode 5 pushes them past the point of no return, as it is made very clear that it is now all or nothing for House Forester.Click here to read more...
We reported last week the summer release for the free of charge Resident Evil 2: Reborn HD remake that is currently in the pipeline from Italian indie outfit Invader Games. The project has been developed using the Unreal 4 engine and includes improved 3D modelling, lighting, particle effects, tuned-up gameplay plus new textures and animations.
The game has actually been in development for just over two years with a playable alpha version for the PC releasing back in October of 2014 when the game was originally using the Unity Engine.
We love Resident Evil here at Dealspwn (not you, Resident Evil 6) and genuinely can't wait for the release of Resident Evil 2: Reborn HD. Not just because it's free, there's also reasoning of nostalgia from our happy memories of Resident Evil 2 back in 1998.Click here to read more...
Today is the big day – Windows 10 is launching worldwide. To mark the occasion, we thought we would collate all the information about Microsoft’s new OS and how it relates to PC gamers. After all, regardless of whether you think being an early adopter is exciting or foolish, there are many gamers that will be making the switch as soon as they are able. So take a look through our handy guide as we explain what is new, what to watch out for, and which games are confirmed to run on the new OS – along with those that definitely won’t.
Life is Strange is becoming known for killer WTF endings to each episodes, making that damn six week gap between episodes absolutely excruciating. Don't worry I'm keeping up the habit of not giving away any past plot events for those of you waiting for the season to wrap up before diving in, Netflix-style.
The opening section of Episode 4 is a radical departure for the story given the ending of the last entry. Max's whole reality is seen from a new point of view. There are new entries in her SMS log, a new group of friends and her relationship with Chloe has transformed.
Expect to sit back and listen to a lot of dialogue for the first hour in a scene that goes on a bit too long without much meaningful player interaction. Don't worry though, the narrative sucker punches you without warning before you get too impatient.Click here to read more...
Never Alone manages to overcome its technical hiccups with an enchanting setting supported with a pair of adorable characters and some interesting cultural insights into the Iñupiat community. The basic puzzle/platforming gameplay is family-friendly and works even better when played in co-op. - Never Alone Review | Looking For Alaska
I've had the pleasure of playing Never Alone on the Playstation 4 and I have to say it's beautiful, it's atmospheric and it should be played by everybody. The best way I could ever describe it is as 'Limbo with deeper emotional attachment'. I should stop with the soppy talk, just play it.
Bundlestars have 5 new bundles for us over the next 5 days with each bundle presented with a different genre to the previous. Today sees the launch of the Be The Hero week from Bundlestars with the RPG Heroes Bundle.

We're getting a new Hitman game on December 8th. Usually, this would be cause for celebration. But instead, we're very concerned about what is could mean for gamers and the way video games are released. If you hadn't heard, Hitman will only release digitally this year, at the full price of $60/£40. However, it won't be a finished product, not even close.
IO Interactive said: "What we release on December 8th is not the full game. It's a sizable chunk of it. Throughout 2016 we'll release more locations and missions until the story arc is done and finished. All of that content is included in the $60 price."
We've had successful episodic releases before with The Walking Dead, Resident Evil Revelations 2 and Life is Strange, but they've been a fraction of the price (about £15 for a Season Pass) and we've had a good idea of what we're getting into. Better yet, there's usually a demo, or the first episode generally only costs a few notes. If you don't like it, you're not out of pocket that much.
Square-Enix want you to buy a part (sorry, "sizable chunk") of the game for full price, with an IOU promise that the rest of it will turn up eventually. It's not quite the same as an Early Access title as IO is keen to iterate: "Early Access can often mean something unfinished or unpolished. That's simply not the approach we're taking," and "All of the content we release live to our players will be complete and polished, whether that's the locations and missions we release on December 8th, the live events or the locations and missions that we will release in 2016. It will always be a polished Hitman experience."Click here to read more...
Could this be the episode that sees the promising series finally stop treading water? After Episode 3's ending, we'd certainly expect so. The new trailer looks like the search for Rachel Amber and the foreseen storm are going to feature heavily in the next part of Max's adventure.
In other news, the series has already reached one million sales. Here's to hoping Dontnod won't make us wait another six weeks for the final episode.Click here to see the new trailer.
Evolve was never going to be justified on its release at RRP, it isn’t the best game presented to us this year, but it’s finally under that £10 mark, finally giving it some value.
Game Freak (of Pokémon fame) have developed this stampeding platformer under Sega's gaze, and it would seem they've opted for an unlikely platform hero in the shape of an elephant in order to bring the classic platformer back. Seeing as Sonic's now the Reek to Mario's Ramsay Snow, I was certainly willing to give Tembo a shot.
A new controller may well be on your shopping list soon if you're planning on getting through Tembo the Badass Elephant though. This retro 2D platformer is one of those games I like to refer to as Bastard Hard. I've called it much worse over the last few days, but I'm probably not allowed to print such tirades.
There's a war going on and Tembo is a Rambo-esque elephant veteran coming out of retirement to take on the Phantom forces, a bunch of baddies who wear a lot of purple while firing grenades and fireballs or they buzz around in tanks, choppers and jetpacks.Click here to read more...
Four Moto Racer games for 66p? Come on petrol-heads, that's a definite no brainer isn't it? The Moto Racer Collection from IndieGala weighs in at just 66p ($0.99) and contains:
