Win a Steam code for fantastic online RTS game Foxhole – we have ten codes up for grabs!

Foxhole is a fantastic idea for an RTS and it’s been executed very well. Impressive when you consider it’s only just popped up on Steam Early Access.

That’s how metal works. Anyway, download it, listen to it while you’re playing League, it’ll be great.

Fill the gaps in your Legendary card collection in Hearthstone

If you’re a Hearthstone player that’s been slacking off this week then you need to buck your ideas up. From now on, you’re guaranteed to get a Legendary card within your first ten packs of a new set.

Save Titanfall 2 from obscurity now that it’s part of Origin Access

Titanfall 2 didn’t sell as well as it should when it came out last year. It’s a big shame as it’s undoubtedly one of the best shooters of recent years. But it kinda has a second chance to shine now as it’s available as part of Origin Access. You can play it by subscribing to the game service alongside a load of other EA games.

Pre-order your own pocket-sized Rainbow Six Siege figurine

This is cute. Even if you don’t play Rainbow Six Siege you should want one of these chibi-style figurines of the game’s group of terrorists and anti-terrorists. One of them even comes with a large riot shield held in its tiny armoured arm. Terrorists should never be this cute.

Play newly released Canadian wilderness survival game The Long Dark

The Long Dark has picked up a big following over the years in its time as an Early Access title on Steam. But now it’s been fully released with a new story mode and it’s brill. It’s also getting a movie adaptation so expect it to get bigger and better. Jump in now for a good time trying to battle the elements in Canada’s harshest environs.

Check out Tacoma, which is the next game from the Gone Home devs

If you enjoyed Gone Home then you’ll want to have a look at the next game from the same team. It’s called Tacoma and tells its story through the items scattered around its abandoned space station. But there are also recorded holograms to find that let you get a little bit closer to the absent characters.

Add a bit of Bloodborne to your Dark Souls playthrough with BloodSouls

Bloodborne is still a PS4 exclusive but when has that ever stopped the PC gaming community from playing a game? Never. That’s why Bloodborne is now available on PC. Ok, not quite, but its crimson tides, monster horror, and Lovecraftian themes can be yours in Dark Souls with this new mod.
