A hack between friends: Watch Dogs flaunts its multiplayer shenanigans

Warlords of Draenor is changing a whole mess of things and throwing in dynamic PvP gear

Stab a shark, build a house, just an average day in FarSky

Look out for the new witch hut in the latest Minecraft snapshot

The new building.

This latest update gets witches onto the property ladder and also makes a few minor tweaks to the game. Be careful with this one, though, as word is it might contain a significant bug. Click through for a more detailed analysis of the major changes.

Are you ready?

  • Slimes now spawn in swamps when the sun goes down.
  • You can now quickly move items into your inventory slots by pressing the 1 to 9 keys while the mouse is over them.
  • Fires spread in a much more conservative manner, putting an end to crazy blazes.
  • There are new Flatworld terrain generation options.
  • Bug fixes for paintings and teleporting pets.
  • There's an ever so slightly shinier Beacon texture.

If you're interested in trying a new Minecraft snapshot for yourself, remember that we have a guide here, but be warned that some players are reporting a problem with this one where they're breaking two blocks at once. Don't make a mess, now.
