Say Goodbye to Raids and Hello to Destiny's Prison of Elders Right Here

Jail break

No, the Prison of Elders isn't a harshly named old folks' home - it's actually one of the main draws of Destiny's next DLC, House of Wolves.

Number station nation

It only feels like yesterday that we were tapping away on pre-release stories for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but Call of Duty: Black Ops III has now deftly double-jumped into the headlines.

Gun to go

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's pack shot will pay homage to its predecessors – despite the fact that its seemingly ditching the Cold War for, er, advanced warfare.
