Battlefield 1's campaign War Stories is a series of single-player World War 1 tales from various perspectives. In this gameplay we tackle the pilot's story Friends in High Places, starring pilot-gambler Clyde Blackburn, the biggest jerk in the whole of World War 1.
Watch Dogs 2 co-op expands on Watch Dogs' multiplayer promise with new open world co-op missions. Also, actual dogs. In this Watch Dogs 2 co-op gameplay we're joined by Ellen from Outside Xbox companion channel Outside Xtra to tackle both co-op missions and the thorny issue of which adorable dog to pet first.
Red Dead Redemption 2 can show us all the stunning landscapes and wildlife it likes, we all know that this is a Rockstar game and as such, it will also be full of memorably kooky side quests. Red Dead Redemption 2 has its work cut out, however, if it's going to top the weirdest moments from the original Red Dead Redemption. Recall these eight missions that really put the wild in Wild West.
Battlefield 1 is out this week, and it takes the military shooter series to World War 1. This conflict was one of the most bloody and horrifying in modern history, but that doesn't preclude it from including an unexpectedly moving section where you play as a pigeon. It's not the first time a game has let us briefly, bizarrely be an animal, as Show of the Week discovers.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is officially a thing, at last, and it's officially called Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar has even treated us to a short trailer, though it's as light on detail as it is very, very pretty. Our hunger for Red Dead Redemption 2 facts won't be denied, however, so here's what we've deduced from the debut one-minute trailer.
In the real world, the only time travel we're allowed is forward, at a rate of one hour per hour. But seeing what game characters do to make time pass more quickly, maybe it's just as well. Consider these ways to make time go faster in The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid 5, Deadly Premonition and the rest.
We're pleased to present Outside Xtra, a new channel dedicated to the wider world of gaming and related culture, including PlayStation, Nintendo, VR and games that don't have Master Chief in. We drop in completely voluntarily to help newbies Luke and Ellen explain the deal in the following video.
In this Gears of War 4 co-op gameplay, our adventures in the land of thick necks and robot Disneyland continues. We discover exactly where JD Fenix and Del are dragging that fabricator and meet the leader of the Outsiders' village. We also discover the exact level of glee Jane exhibits when she gets her hands on a Salvo rocket launcher.
Hitman's 11th elusive target is "The Fixer": an attache named Xander Haverfoek at the Swedish consulate in Marrakesh, who is helping previous target Claus Hugo Strandberg transport conflict diamonds. We can't be having that, obviously, so Mike and I head to Morocco to fix the Fixer for good.
Behold Overwatch Halloween Terror's co-op mode Junkenstein's Revenge, in which we defend the castle gates from Dr Junkenstein and his Monster, Mercy the Witch, Reaper with a jack-o'-lantern head and stupidly many zombie robots.
Titanfall's rideable robot warriors and puny wall-running pilots return shortly in Titanfall 2. This sequel adds a new single-player campaign mode that promises to flesh out the tantalising sci-fi backdrop of the first game with a proper story. In it, you play as Jack Cooper, a pilot who is forced to link with a Titan named BT-7274, after BT's original pilot tragically buys the farm.
The emotions usually associated with unlocking an achievement are positive ones, such as pride or satisfaction, but a few games have prepared sarcastic low-value achievements that pop when you screw something up, just to really rub it in.
FIFA 17's career mode is known as The Journey, and follows the career of Alex Hunter, a young man hoping to follow in his grandfather's footsteps to become a professional footballer. See what happens when we're given control of Alex's early career in this FIFA The Journey gameplay on Xbox One.
This Gears of War 4 co-op gameplay shows some questionable co-operative play from us as we tackle the opening raid of the campaign as JD Fenix and Del, who is by far the coolest Derek in gaming. The Outsiders, as JD's scavenging clan is known, find themselves in an idyllic Disneyland-esque prefab city that's the perfect place to start a post-Locust War baby boom. There's even a fully kitted out Maternity Annex ready to go.
Battlefront's Death Star DLC lets you attack a Star Destroyer, rescue R2-D2 from Death Star imprisonment and go on a trench run right into the Death Star's vulnerable exhaust port. Observe us do those all those things in this Battlefront Death Star DLC gameplay on Xbox One.
WWE 2K17 comes out on consoles next week, promising to bring us closer than ever to the slapstick, gymnastic pantomime that is professional wrestling. We assess the game in Show of the Week, then turn to WWE Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day for tips on the most important aspect of playing with your friends: psyching them out so you score an easy victory.
We recently got all salty about the terrible levels that nearly ruined some of our favourite games, then asked which rubbish levels in otherwise brilliant games really ground your gears, and you told us. Fiddly GTA San Andreas missions, misjudged Deus Ex: Human Revolution boss battles, and an entire ethereal dimension from Dragon Age: Origins figure in this hall of shame.
Picking up where we left off yesterday, part two of us playing Hitman's new Colorado mission sees us trying to assassinate Penelope Graves, a former Interpol agent-turned terrorist, and Ezra Berg, a retired Mossad interrogator who wears a creepy Michael Myers-style mask. He's not the only one who can do creepy dress-up, it turns out, when I find myself a sinister scarecrow disguise.
WWE 2K17's revamped career mode promises the most in-depth and realistic career mode ever, letting you go from ticket-buying NXT spectator to headlining the main event at Wrestlemania. Watch as we take our newly created superstar Lionface from no-name chump to WWE Smackdown legend.
Hitman's fifth downloadable episode is Freedom Fighters, set in a militia camp on a remote farm in Colorado. This time we're tasked with assassinating four targets, each of whom holds an important position within the militia, and may be connected to the mysterious shadow client that we have been tracking throughout the series. Join us for part one of our Hitman Colorado playthrough as we take out Maya Parvati and Sean Rose in our own unique ways.
Manual Samuel puts you in control of Samuel, a rich guy who is hit by a truck and strikes a deal with death: if he can survive for 24 hours with manual control of all of his bodily functions, he can carry on living. What that means for you is a QWOP-style puzzle game in which you have to keep Sam's spine straight to keep him from flopping backwards, breathe to keep him from suffocating, and blink to keep the screen from whiting out entirely. Watch us struggle with Samuel in this Xbox One gameplay.
Set 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3, Gears of War 4 centres on Marcus Fenix's son JD, who faces a new threat to humanity known as The Swarm. His old man Marcus is still around, though, and doing pretty well for 61 years old. As we discover later in the show, he's not the only grumpy would-be retiree in videogames.
Sponsored Content: After the events of Dishonored, young Emily Kaldwin became empress of the Empire of the Isles. By the time Dishonored 2 takes place, though, now-protagonist Emily has been deposed by an otherworldly usurper. This is a shame, as Emily has a lot of qualities that make her pretty much the ideal Empress of the Isles. Discover five of them in the video below.

Dishonored 2 lets you play as either deposed Empress of the Isles Emily Kaldwin, or as her father and royal protector Corvo Attano. In this Dishonored 2 gameplay Mike and I each bring our unique approach to the game's Clockwork Mansion level. This is a fiendish maze of shifting walls and moving floors home to one Kirin Jindosh, mad scientist and captor of Anton Sokolov, our ally from the first game. Who will fare better, Mike, playing as Corvo, or myself, playing as Emily?
