Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Burnt Horizon rappels down under today

Quite why anyone would do anything in the outback but stay in the shade and drink beer is beyond me, but it's today's new battlefield in Ubisoft squad shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Burnt Horizon adds a new map set out in a dusty desert service station, plus two role-reversing Australian gadgeteers added to the roster of playable operators. Attacker Gridlock can throw self-deploying patches of…

Rainbow Six Siege Mute: Y4S1 update, what he can do and how to use him

Mute is perhaps one of the more annoying operators to deal with in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege.

Rainbow Six Siege Clash: Y4S1 2019 update, what she can do and how to use her

Clash represents the first of her kind in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, as she's the only defender that uses a shield.

Rainbow Six Siege Maverick: Y4S1 update, what he can do and how to use him

Most breaching attackers in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege make a lot of noise, but Maverick takes a slightly more stealthy approach. His blowtorch can bore holes into just about anything, but its limited fuel capacity makes it tough to use right. The time it takes to swap between his breaching torch and weapons has increased in Y4S1, so this guide will go over how to use…

Far Cry: New Dawn’s hummingbirds are photo mode magic

When I was a kid, my parents would often take me and my sister out “twitching,” a weird word for bird watching made weirder by the emergence of the streaming platform. When we travelled, they would take heavy reference books showing off every species that occurred in the area, and tick them off as we saw them, tallying them up at night to add to…

Far Cry New Dawn PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

It doesn't seem like five minutes since we were last in Hope County, punching bears in the face and losing our minds to bliss-fuelled nightmare cults, but here we are again with Far Cry New Dawn, where hot pink is the new post-apocalyptic beige. Its predecessor, Far Cry 5, wasn't too much of a faff to get running on PC, but a lot's changed since…

Far Cry: New Dawn bursts into stores

The vivid post-apocalyptic playground of Far Cry: New Dawn’s Hope County is now open for visitors. Liberate some bases, maybe set some things on fire, definitely come across some weird political subtext that Ubisoft insists actually isn’t there – it’s a Far Cry game, you probably know roughly what to expect. “This apocalypse has been too much fun,” say the twins, as they run around…

Far Cry New Dawn review

In many ways, Far Cry New Dawn is the most Far Cry game the series has turned out. Sure, the apocalypse may have ushered in an era of goons with health bars and levels. But there’s also a bit where you take some drugs so you can survive a boat ride to a man who gives you more drugs, in order to punch a bear…

Rainbow Six Siege ditches Starter edition and slashes unlock prices

As much as people (rightfully) mocked the convoluted Anthem launch graphs, Ubisoft remain the king of overly complicated multiple editions of games. Fortunately, they're simplifying things a bit for Rainbow Six Siege today - the tactical team shooter now no longer has a 'starter' edition, with anyone owning that getting a free upgrade to the regular edition. The Regular edition has dropped in price, and…

Last year saw For Honor reborn to stand with Ubisoft stablemate Rainbow Six Siege, and today marks the third-person team brawler's first major update of 2019.
