World of Tanks: Mercenaries just launched as a global release. The game and its explosive new campaign is exclusive for the PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It involves a story where World War II never ended, shattering society to pieces.
Microsoft has introduced a new accessible-friendly Xbox adaptive controller for disabled players.
Microsoft’s Xbox has never been profitable, according to Paul Thurrott, a respected technology journalist.
Xbox owners can look forward to picking up four free games this upcoming March as the latest offering for the Games with Gold program has been unveiled.
This time around Microsoft is handing out the following freebies:
- Layers of Fear – Xbox One, March 1, 2017 – March 31, 2017
- Evolve – Xbox One, March 16, 2017 – April 15, 2017
- Borderlands 2 – Xbox 360, March 1, 2017 – March 15, 2017
- Heavy Weapon – Xbox 360, March 16, 2017 – March 31, 2017
Layers of Fear is a first-person horror title that pits you as a painter stuck in a haunted mansion with the simple goal of finishing your masterpiece. We reviewed Layers of Fear and gave it a 9.5, saying that it “is a horror experience the likes of which I’ve never before experienced, and to not experience it is doing a disservice to yourself, the game, and the people over at Bloober Team SA who created it.”
The four-player multiplayer shooter Evolve is also included in the pack, even though the game went free-to-play on PC last year. We gave it a 6 in our review, stating that it “stumbles onto the scene and right into the unmemorable category of unremarkable mediocrity.” The lesser known Heavy Weapon is a PopCap title that sees you moving a tank in a side-scrolling shoot ’em up.
Borderlands 2 is another gem in the collection, but do take note that this one is for the Xbox 360. The first-person co-op shooter was given a 9 back when we reviewed it in 2012, saying that it “is an easy game of the year contender with its accomplished mechanics and surprisingly complex RPG and loot systems.”
Just like every month, Microsoft splits the list of four free games by including two for the Xbox One and two for the Xbox 360. Those who own an Xbox One will be able to download all four games onto their system, including the backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games. Those who own an Xbox 360 can snag these titles and save them in their game library even if they don’t own the required system.
These games will be available for certain times during the month of March, so pay attention to the dates and don’t miss a single game!
Every month, Xbox Live Gold members are given access to a brand new selection of free games under Microsoft’s Games with Gold program. Of course, every month varies, with some selections being more memorable than others. Still, it’s worth checking out the program’s offerings every month to see what games are available for free. And this month’s selection looks quite good, with such titles as Murdered: Soul Suspect and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon available for download for any Gold members.
Microsoft has announced what games will be available for free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers during the month of September through the Games with Gold program.
Microsoft is kicking off their annual massive Ultimate Game Sale. The Ultimate Game Sale features over 250+ deals on various Xbox One and Xbox 360 games, from recently-released blockbusters to indie titles to some of the most popular games of the past several years.
Call of Duty is probably the most controversial gaming franchise in the world right now.
Microsoft revealed the list of games for May’s edition of their Games with Gold program.
After ten years since the beginning of the Xbox 360, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer announced the company will cease production of the Xbox 360.
Call of Duty is gearing up to reveal their second of four DLC packs on Thursday, March 21. The news came from the official Call of Duty Twitter account on Tuesday.

The first DLC, Awakening, released on PS4 in February while Xbox One and PC received the DLC earlier this month.
Despite Black Ops III players on last-gen consoles being told not to expect any post-launch content, Activision announced yesterday that Awakening would release for PS3 on April 5. There was no word on whether or not the DLC would also be released on Xbox 360 and with no PS3 season pass, the content will cost the usual $14.99.
Each DLC pack is guaranteed to contain at least four multiplayer maps and one zombie map. The packs cost $14.99 each, but are also included in the $50 season pass.
New updates are coming to bring the Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms closer together.
