This week it's the Xbox One's turn to get the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta, so people who pre-ordered the game can test the multiplayer before it comes out.

Bridge Constructor is a game which lets you, yes, construct bridges.

Gears of War Ultimate Edition brings a faster, prettier version of the game to Xbox One along with modernised multiplayer and a suitcase full of DLC. If your memory doesn't stretch back as far as 2006, let us take you on a chainsaw rampage down memory lane with the original Xbox 360 game from way back when.

We take on the game's opening chapter in this HD gameplay.
Batman: Arkham Knight's Harley Quinn Story Pack DLC puts you in the mismatched shoes of Harley Quinn on a mission to free Poison Ivy from the Bludhaven police department using clown-themed gadgets, psychosis vision and a big metal baseball bat.

Making a videogame is really difficult, so it's no surprise some developers need more recognition for their hard work than a couple of BAFTAs. That's why some developers put themselves in their own games for players to find. Here are seven times game creators turned up in their own games, as themselves, fourth wall be damned.

In our latest series of GTA Online heist adventures, we've stolen weed, coke, meth, viagra and MDMA. Now it's time to take it to market.

In Batman: Arkham Knight's new DLC, you step into the crime-fighting wedge heels of Barbara Gordon in her pre-Oracle days as Batgirl. In this Xbox One gameplay she takes on The Joker in an abandoned amusement park on an offshore oil rig. It is pretty easy to see why it was abandoned, to be honest.
The Swindle is an upcoming Xbox One stealth platformer best described as Deus Ex meets Spelunky. The levels are procedurally generated, right down to the addresses and business names, and your job as one of a gang of master thieves is to steal as much loot as possible from a level without getting caught or dying. We're not so good at the last part, as you will see in this gameplay.

In this Xbox One gameplay, we tackle two of Arkham Knight's B-list baddies: the monstrous Man-Bat and a mysterious, opera-loving serial killer.
As anyone who is still buzzing off a recent viewing of Fury Road can tell you, a Mad Max game needs to be all about large vehicles smashing each other up. So how do you go about doing that in the Mad Max game coming our way this September?
