Battle Mini Game Coming To Minecraft On The Xbox One

I have two kids who love Minecraft. If they're not playing it they are watching it, mostly with a mode just like this. They spend hours building these maps, but now MS, Mojang, and 4J Studios are making it much easier for them it seems.

Battles are coming to Minecraft this June, a mode where players use randomly generated items found in chests around a specially designed map, with them left to fight it out until only one is left standing. You can play this mode both locally via four player split-screen, or up to 8 players online via Xbox Live.

The first maps for this mode will be free via a June update and include three maps to try it out, with more map packs being released later down the line costing $2.99, which is just over £2.00 here in the UK.

No trailer just yet, but check out the lovely Ellen from the Xbox On team who has already played it the lucky bugger.

HXR Plays - Overwatch Opening Intro + Reaper Gameplay

Today I start a little series on here where I have a little play with 1 of the 21 characters available in the massively addictive game that is Overwatch.

Today sees me show off the opening intro, as well as playing a game with the character known as Reaper. He falls into the offense side when it comes to character selection, and is great if you enjoy a bit of right in your face combat.

Reaper like the other 20 characters in the game has a few specials to play with outside of his standard weapon. Not only do his standard Hellfire shotguns pack a mean punch at close quarters, but he also has Wraith Form (invincible for a short few seconds but not able to shoot), Shadow Step, which is a fancy way of saying teleporting from one place to another, and finally we have his charged special known as Death Blossom. This special sees Reaper spin around for a few seconds while unloading his deadly shotguns, killing anyone who is stupid enough to get in the way.

More gameplays on the way with me h…
