Evolve is about to receive its first major DLC in the form of the Behemoth monster. This massive bruiser weighs more than twice as much as an Easter Island statue, can roll up into a ball of death and can throw up massive rock walls to trap its prey.
The DLC is released on March 31st, and you can get ahead of the curve by buying Evolve and the Monster Expansion pack for just £27.85 on PS4 and Xbox One.
Before you do anything, though, make sure you read our Evolve review because I can't wholeheartedly recommend buying it.
People whine about games being graphically 'downgraded' all the time. To be honest, we tend to tune it out these days. So when we heard a few gamers alleging that GTA V had suffered a visual hit on Xbox One and PS4 following the latest update, I must admit to being rather dismissive.
But they're only bloody right!
GTA V's graphics have noticeably worsened with the release of update 1.08, and Rockstar are actively investigating.Click here to read more...
The all-new expansion will put players behind the wheel of "iconic vehicles from the Fast & Furious film series," including new cars that will star in Furious 7, which might not suck too badly seeing as the series seems to be on an upward trend.
Most importantly, players do not need to have purchased or played Forza Horizon 2 in order to download and play it. So... do it?
Haven't got into Far Cry 4 yet? Zavvi have got more stock in and boast the cheapest price around. You can pay £24.98 for Far Cry 4 on PS4 and Xbox One, which is a seriously good price for a seriously impressive sandbox.
Hot stuff, and exploding elephants galore. You might be able to use voucher code VOUCHC5 for an extra saving (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't), or WELCOME if you set up a new account.
Wow, we didn't see this coming did we? Not 100% sure if this is the price Tesco Direct are intending to sell us the next gen version of Grand Theft Auto V, but if you are looking to buy this game what better time than now?
"When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other."Click here to read more...
With a little mix of Warhammer and a touch of American Football, Blood Bowl 2 gives us both humour and brutality, As a sequel to the original 2009 offering Blood Bowl 2 boasts a whole new graphics engine and all new features, You can preorder this May 29th release from 365Games for only £29.99 on both Xbox One and PS4.
I have to hand it to Telltale – releasing Episode 3 with absolutely no build-up via the usual channels was a very welcome surprise, but then again having to wait extended periods between releases is probably the reason why. I just hope that, with the TV show returning soon, it doesn’t become an excuse to drag out the wait (something Tales from the Borderlands’ players have had to suffer with.) Anyway, before we dive into our review for The Sword In The Darkness, here’s some links to our reviews of Episode 1: Iron From Ice, and Episode Two: The Lost Lords. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.
Despite some moments of progression, I felt that Episodes 1 and 2 were more about the setup of the story than anything, building up the world of Westeros before things inevitably come crashing down. While Episode 3 still continues that trend to a degree, there is definitely a sense of moving forward this time around. Choices appear to be more diverse, and actions from previous episodes are finally coming back to haunt the player. Perhaps most importantly, while the other episodes have done a great job in replicating the feel of the show, Episode 3 is the closest Telltale have come to nailing it perfectly, all of which makes The Sword In The Darkness the best instalment so far.

Microsoft has officially announced next month's free Games With Gold on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. As previously reported, they're doubling the number available on each system, with two freebies for Xbox One and a whopping four for Xbox 360 owners!
Here's the haul:
Shame about Army Of Two: The Devil's Cartel, but hey, at least it's free! Let us know what you make of the selection in the comments. UPDATE: Special thanks to Eden0032 and dipsylalapo, who rounded this up on HUKD and beat me to it!
After easing ourselves in though Battlefield: Hardline's campaign (so much better than the last two games!), we've been hitting the servers pretty hard since launch. We've been impressed with how stable the online action has been and it looks like Visceral have learned from DICE's mistakes in Battlefield 4. So you've no excuses to not get the most from the online action. However, life as a cop or criminal can be seriously tough out there. So why not improve your chances by checking out our Battlefield: Hardline multiplayer tips.
Hardline's assault rifles have a mean kick to them and sustained firing causes your crosshair to dance around the screen making distant targets difficult to hit. You don't necessarily need to adjust the firing mode of your assault rifle to burst fire, just manually fire in shorter bursts and you'll notice how much easier it is to maintain a steady aim and not have to worry about reloading to finish of a single opponent.Click here to read more...
Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release and this is one of the better deals we've seen for a new copy as it saves you at least £5.
I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III on PS4. It's the co-op that's really pulled me in, I can't think of a game that I've played more in couch co-op since Street of Rage 2. With controls perfectly mapped to the controller, this was well worth the wait on consoles and is regularly patched with updates and tweaks that make it worth coming back to time and time again.
Thanks to iamthelloyd.
The Nostromo Edition of Alien: Isolation is back on offer on for PS4 and Xbox One, with prices starting at a tasty £18.95. This deal is even cheaper than the regular version at most sites!
Stock is low for the PS4 version. If it runs out, try here for £19.95.
Alien: Isolation has been a big success. The pulse rifles and dodgy AI have been ditched for a pure survival horror experience that sees you constantly fleeing from the alien by hiding under tables or in lockers and so on. Sure, it can get a little repetitive, but this is till the best Aliens game in years. The Nostromo Edition comes with the Crew Expendable DLC starring the original cast of the first movie.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
It's under 6000! 6000 Pennies, that is. You can now get the Dragonball Xenoverse: Trunks Travel Edition for £56.86 on Xbox One.
"Dragon Ball Xenoverse captures the brutal thrill of soaring aerial anime battles better than practically any game I've ever played, all while allowing us to genuinely enter the Dragon Ball universe as our own character by participating in key canonical events and crazy 'what if?' scenarios." - 8/10 review
The Trunks Travel Edition contains a Trunks figure and limited editon packaging. Thanks iiMULTIWARZz!
It's highly unlikely we'll see Final Fantasy XV released this year as it's apparently only around 60% complete. So it was a great surprise to hear that Square-Enix were releasing a lengthy demo for it. Well, if you bought an copy of Final Fantasy Type-0 that is.
So let's dive into this vertical slice of the game that lets us play around with some basic combat options and also provides a large area to explore. Seriously, this thing is huge, no wonder they called it an Episode rather than a demo.
This lengthy taster begins with a brief introduction to the four main characters of your party. There's some serious box ticking of RPG-tropes here. There's the muscle head, the smart guy, a Junkie-chic version of Cloud wearing a weird vest jacket that looks like a tartan skirt at first glance and then there's you, Prince Noctis, a skinny ultra emo haircut. There's not enough story or dialogue scenes offered to provided a fully rounded opinion I'll admit. But as first impressions go, they're fairly dislikeable. I've noticed that FF party members have been a wonderfully diverse group over the years, so it's odd to see this Japanese equivalent of the Backstreet Boys.Click here to read more...
Hot stuff, and exploding elephants galore. Thanks to adhoward @ HUKD for the spot, and Turkey for the voucher code heads-up.
You can get some handsome savings on Borderlands: The Handsome Collection today, you magnificent Butt Stallions.
2K have apparently dispatched us a review copy, but it hasn't arrived yet. What we can tell you is that it includes remastered versions of Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and all DLC, which is pretty great value. Make sure to check out the Borderlands: The Handsome Collection save transfer guide!
Bad boys bad boys, what you gonna do? Find out in Battlefield Hardline, which basically just reskins Battlefield with a half-assed cops & robbers premise that doesn't really go far enough. Hey, at least we're honest.
Having Battlefield Hardline installation issues on PS4? You're not alone.
OK, so it's not the greatest game to hit the Xbox One and it can be grabbed for only £7.50, but you can't argue with the fact that it's one stunning steelbook! And it's available from Amazon for only £13.93.
"Garrett, the Master Thief, steps out of the shadows into the City. In this treacherous place, where the Baron's Watch spreads a rising tide of fear and oppression, his skills are the only things he can trust. Even the most cautious citizens and their best- guarded possessions are not safe from his reach.;As an uprising emerges, Garrett finds himself entangled in growing layers of conflict. Lead by Orion, the voice of the people, the tyrannized citizens will do everything they can to claim back the City from the Baron's grasp. The revolution is inevitable. If Garrett doesn't get involved, the streets will run red with blood and the City will tear itself apart."

Whoa, dude. Get your first look at Ascendance, the second Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare map pack in its debut trailer.
Brotastic bronanigans aside, Ascendance looks like a ton of fun ahead of its March 31st launch on Xbox Live. Details below.Click here to read more...
Attention wannabe Guitar Gods: you can now buy Rocksmith 2014 Edition for just £27.95 on Xbox One, including the Real Tone Cable.
It's a great price for a game that genuinely teaches you how to play guitar to various levels of proficiency, plugging your own axe into your console to become a real guitar hero. Thanks again, uwantsum!
However, there's a serious caveat that you need to be aware of. You will encounter crippling lag if you use an HDMI audio connection instead of an optical connection. If you don't use optical audio, we'd suggest staying well clear. Get the details in Carl's Rocksmith 2014 review.
