Marsh Davies at

The Khyber Strike DLC for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has now launched, bringing with it several new maps, a new game mode, new achievements, a 10 point raise to the level-cap and a new trailer to show these very things off.

The new maps are: Switchback, a close-quarters deathtrap of twisting alleys; Palace, a palace; and Transit, a Moscow metro station with hazardously mobile trains. Meanwhile there's an additional sniper-friendly map for the Guerrilla game mode, called Village, plus Takeover, a game mode in which your regular kills are multiplied by territorial possession.


Thief: Deadly Shadows, Splinter Cell, Anomaly: Warzone Earth and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver sneak onto GoG

Retro game download service GoG.com have seemingly reached into our brains and pulled out some of our finest gaming memories with this week's new additions.

Thief: Deadly Shadows may have reduced the level sizes of its predecessors, but it more than makes up for it with its cold, perpetually haunted atmosphere and that level. You know the one I mean. We hope the Thief 4 team at Square Enix are furiously taking notes while they poo their pants.


Rainbow 6 Patriots announced: "Terrorism has evolved, and so has Rainbow 6"

Owen Hill at

Ubisoft have just announced Rainbow 6 Patriots - the next game in the successful tactical FPS series. It's being developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the support of Ubisoft Toronto and Ubisoft Red Storm, and will arrive on PC in 2013. The single player campaign will pit Team Rainbow (goodies) against the True Patriots (baddies). The latter are a revolutionist group who claim the American government is irrevocably corrupted by greedy politicians. So far, so Clancy.


Tom Clancy's HAWX 2 Review

Tim Stone at

HAWX 2 takes combat flight sim realism to a whole new level. Last night, while battling helicopter gunships over insurgent-held oil platforms in the Persian Gulf, I managed to crash four times, writing off four very expensive jets in the process. This morning, when I went to fly the next campaign sortie, I discovered I’d been grounded.

There was no cutscene or message – the game simply refused to start. Clever Ubisoft have obviously included a secret Sim Squadron Leaderô feature that punishes profligacy with periods of forced heel-cooling. Brilliant!
