Free Play Days is a great little promotion that allows for players to try out a game for a couple of days with no strings attached, and it would appear that the next game in line is Diablo III, if the Xbox Store is to be believed. Take this with a pinch of salt for now, as nothing has been confirmed, but the Xbox Store currently lists Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition (such a wordy title) as part of the Free Play Days promotion. The next game in the promotion being labelled as such before any … Read More »

Redditors and data miners have been plundering the Overwatch files and have found lines of dialogue related to a Christmas event. My early speculation is that everyone plays as Zenyatta and they throw snowballs instead of orbs.

Whether this is related to a Christmas event, such as Halloween and Junkenstein’s Revenge, remains to be seen. Santa’s Slay, anyone? What would you like to see … Read More »
