The latest trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight has hit the net, somewhat ignominiously due to a leak rather than an official announcement, but frankly Warner Bros have nothing to worry about seeing as it looks fantastic. Dubbed "All Who Follow You," it gives us a cinematic taste of the city before getting up close and personal for some brutal combat and crazy Batmobile tank battles.
Let us know what you think ahead of its launch in June. If you can't wait to get involved, you can pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight for just £35.57 on PS4 and Xbox One using voucher code APROFFERDAY1&2.
Every time someone on the internet mentions Destiny, I hear people grumbling. "Why are you writing all these Destiny articles?" "Are people still playing Destiny?"
Well, yes, they are. We are still playing Destiny. Despite its disappointing storyline and repetitive structure, it's an engaging and convenient social experience that allows you and a few mates to play on your terms, both cooperatively and competitively, all while earning persistent upgrades. You're a bit late to the party, guardian, but if you want to get involved you can grab a current-gen copy for just £18.57.
I actually found myself warming to it this year as I changed my play habits. Find out more in Forgiving Destiny: why my Biggest Disappointment Of 2014 is winning me back.

The brand new gameplay debut trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III from Treyarch just landed and it's pretty damn awesome if we're honest.
You'll have fun spotting some of the 'influences' from other hit games. So far we can see reminders of the likes of Vanquish, Titanfall, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Binary Domain and wait,,, Haze? We can't wait to get our hands on the game as it looks set to continue in a similar manner to the highly enjoyable Advanced Warfare, despite development reverting back to Treyarch.
We didn't see exo-suits, but enhanced movement like speed thrusts, wall-running and knee slides certainly seem to be in. Along with Deus Ex-style upgrades and robotic enemies and mechs as seen in the likes of Vanquish and Binary Domain. We're certainly not complaining, mash up all these influences and you have the potential for a fantastic shooter. Advanced Warfare was the boot up the arse the series needed and Black Ops III looks like it may speed things up even more. We most certainly approve.Click here to see the trailer.

Thanks to wrigzefc @ HUKD for the heads up.
Amazon are throwing a PS4 and Xbox One promotion this weekend that grants you a discount if you pre-order two games from a wide selection of titles including Star Wars Battlefront, Rainbow Six: Siege and The Division. Specifically, you can get any two games for £80, with discounts applied at checkout.
It's an interesting offer that echoes a similar Tesco deal, but it also comes with a number of caveats. First of all: it's possible to get many of these games for under £40 elsewhere, making for a false saving. Secondly, some of these games are still months from release and may well get cheaper down the line. Either way, now you know the facts, the choice is yours.
For all our mixed feelings about Watch Dogs, we can't deny it's worth a look. And at £9.99 for a pre-owned PS4 or Xbox One copy, you'll have a lot of fun.
For the length of Watch Dogs' story, the unique hacking opportunities will keep you hooked, as there’s nothing else quite like it out there. But outside of the hacking, police chases go on too long, side-missions feel repetitive, the audio diaries or home hacks aren’t that interesting and never try to form a bigger picture of the story a la Assassin’s Creed’s extras. It’s a shame, as the game undoubtedly breaks new ground with the hacking opportunities both behind the wheel or when sneaking around on foot. Much like the first Assassin’s Creed, the game has struggled with its own hype, but as history shows, Ubisoft are more than capable of turning this into an essential series if they can make the world and the gameplay around the hacking more interesting too.
Fancy saving yourself over £10 for a copy of FIFA 15 on PS4 or Xbox One? Of course you do, so act fast before this special offer sells out.
FIFA 15 is pretty similar to 14 to be honest, but if you're yet to pick up a next-gen footy title, this is a great place to start. Pro Evo might have just edged it in terms of gameplay, but if you want to see the authentic game with the world's official teams and player names, FIFA's the one for you.
Rainbow Six: Siege is looking tastier every time we see it, and we're growing more cautiously optimistic with each new trailer. As a multinational unit picked from the best of the best, Rainbow Six will allow you to play as operatives from various countries -- and this first trailer showcases the British forces.
Based fairly obviously on the SAS, Brits breach from above and carve a way through target buildings using speed, gas and shock tactics. With luck, this will be a return to form for the long-ignored franchise and for Ubisoft themselves, but naturally we'll have to wait and see.
Need a new hardcore action RPG to get your teeth stuck into on Xbox One? We'd certainly recommend giving Dark Souls: Scholars of the First Sin a go first, but if you're looking for something completely new we'd recommend Bloodborne on PS4. Sorry, we'll stop now.
Lords of the Fallen was very rough around the edges at launch, especially for a full price game. But at half price it's worth a look if you're a fan of Dark Souls. The boss fights in particular are very rewarding.
Ori & The Blind Forest may not be the biggest Xbox One exclusive of the year, but it's already one of the best-reviewed games of this generation so far. A magical experience by all accounts, from its gameplay to emotional story and mouthwatering art direction, and shows that the Xbox One is doing its best to provide a true breadth of software. It costs £15.99 on Xbox Live, but you still pick up a download code for just £11.99.
You'll receive a download code via email and a trial month of EA Access to boot. Note that first time Electronic First customers may have to undergo a security check, but the site is legit and convenient to work with in future.
Sony are running a promo this weekend at select retailers for a solus PS4 for £299. We regularly post better deals in our console bundles section so we can't recommend that as a hot deal. However, one retailer seems to be loving team green this weekend with a stonking Xbox One console bundle for the same price - actually a few pence less at £299.84. Their bundle includes an Xbox One console + The Witcher III: Wild Hunt + Batman: Arkham Knight + 3 month subscription to Now TV. That's frankly ridiculously great value.
The console will be dispatched in time for The Witcher's May 19th release date and Batman will be shipped to you separately upon release by June 23rd. We're pretty sure The Witcher will keep you going until then. Or maybe you'll be using your Now TV pass to catch up on loads of Sky exclusive titles like Game of Thrones season 5? The deal ends on Sunday - if stocks last that long!
Western Final Fantasy fans have had to wait years to get their hands on the former PSP-exclusive. But now Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is available for just £18.95, saving you £8. This is the cheapest price we've seen post-launch. There's added value with this HD port of a PSP game too, as it comes with a huge demo for Final Fantasy XV. Find our review of Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae here.
Or if you're feeling flush, why not splash out on the Collector's Edition for £74.86?
Type-0 is a more action-orientated title in a similar vein to the excellent Crisis Core on PSP. Be sure to check out Jon's Final Fantasy Type-0 Guide while you wait for the game to arrive. Here's a sample of Jon's review: The fact that Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD is enjoyable on PS4 and Xbox One proves how magnificent the PSP original must have been. Its fantastic real-time battle system holds the entire game together, while the ending more than makes up for the confusing mess of jargon that precedes it.
State Of Decay is one of the all-time great zombie games.
This isn't just a generic sandbox with zombies sprinkled in. It's an astonishing simulation that models a group of survivors who band together in the face of the Zed apocalypse; exploring, scavenging, recruiting, creating a new home and permanently dying in an experience that's never the same twice or for any two players.
From random personality clashes to ravening zombie hordes, food shortages and illness, you'll face problems large and small in your attempts to keep your people safe, sane and brains firmly intact. More surprising still, though, it's also fun thanks to satisfying arcadey controls and plenty of action.
Which you'll probably already know seeing as I reviewed State Of Decay back in 2013, praising its gameplay but criticising its horrendously rough visuals. Two years on and Undead Labs have returned with the Year-One Survival Edition, including new high definition assets, all the DLC content and save file transfer functionality. So this review has to answer two important questions: is the Year-One Survival Edition worth buying for those who never experienced State Of Decay the first time around? And it is worth buying again for those who did?
Spoiler alert: "definitely" and "maybe, but probably not."Click here to read more...
Wow, the new Mad Max trailer is all sorts of awesome. You should take a look and then get your preoder deal down. We've been through the formats and have dug out the best prices for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Our PC deal is super hot at £19.99 for a physical copy, saving you a mighty £15 over the next best deal. There's the usual jump in price on consoles, but we've found a few deals that save you a couple of quid at least. It might be worth waiting on console as we expect a £35 (if not better) preorder deal will emmerge before the September release date.
Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD hits shelves today as a very different kind of Final Fantasy game. It boasts a fantastic real-time combat system and a huge cast of characters, and is well worth checking out once you set your expectations to realistic levels. After all, it's a port of a PSP game, so don't expect a graphical powerhouse. Find out why in our full review. If you like what you read, you can pick it up with change for twenty quid on Xbox One!
Whatever you do, though, be sure to prepare for battle with our Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD guide for full character strategies, battle tactics and survival advice! This will probably include Episode Duscae, but be aware that it's a stock-limited offer.
Select PS4 and Xbox One owners will be able to freely download and test The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited tomorrow, so long as you receive an invite from Zenimax Online. Check your inbox!Click here to read more...
