    If you have yet to jump into Bethesda's latest wasteland adventure, Fallout 4 will be free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers to check out this weekend. Starting at midnight on May 25, Gold members will be able to download Fallout 4 for free and explore its ravaged lands through midnight on May 28. Fallout 4 originally hit the scene in November 2015, offering up hundreds of hours of quests and exploration across the main game and its subsequent DLC. The game stays planted deep in the Fallout franchise's RPG roots as the player character emerges to explore the world more than 200 years after it was wracked by a nuclear disaster. There's a ton of freedom and depth involved in the story, and a weekend with the game will only let you dip your toes into the action, so to speak. If you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber and you haven't tried a Fallout game before, this is definitely worth checking out. And if you need a primer before jumping in, check out our review of the game. fallout 4New...

    If you've exhausted the Xbox Game Pass library, here's how to cancel your subscription. Microsoft recently released its new game subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, opening access to an ever-changing collection of games for $9.99 a month. As a subscriber, you'll be getting access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles, all playable for no additional cost. Nevertheless, even with the sheer amount of titles on offer, Xbox Game Pass isn't for everyone. Although a two-week free trial is available to test the service, you'll still be dragged into an automatic renewal after it concludes. Whether you picked up the trial or plan to cancel your paid subscription, it's relatively easy to back out from the service.

    It has been almost a year since video-stream platform Beam.pro joined Microsoft, but the fledgling Twitch competitor is about to undergo a major transformation. Starting today, Beam.pro will be no more. Beam will now be known as "Mixer," or "Mixer.com," as Microsoft asserts its intentions to take on Amazon's Twitch.tv at a global level. The intent behind the Mixer brand is to emphasize the community aspects of the service across Xbox Live and Windows 10. Soon you will also be "mix" your stream with up to three friends, according to Microsoft, combining four feeds, and four chat channels into a single stream. But wait, that's not all! Co-streaming, Xbox One dashboard page Leveraging Mixer's industry-leading low latency, co-streams utilizing Mixer's faster than light (FTL) stream protocol will display in near-real time to viewers, providing a brand new perspective on cooperative streaming.

    The first trailer for Far Cry 5 is here, and Jonestown vibes reverberate throughout. At just over two minutes, the trailer gives us a look at the game's rural Montana setting, where we'll be taking on a religious cult that has a violent stranglehold on the citizens of Hope County. The Montana setting is a big departure from that of previous Far Cry games, which saw players venturing through tropical islands and fictional countries tucked in the Himalayas. Instead, Far Cry 5 offers a chance to trek through the wilderness of the American west. And given the last Far Cry game, Primal, took place in the distant past, Far Cry 5 offers something fresh altogether. The religious theme, which was more than hinted at in the recent release of the game's first official art, is sure to push the envelope of controversy. That said, it certainly looks like it will offer an interesting dive into some new territory for the franchise. In any case, Far Cry 5 is set for a February 27, 2018 release....
