New Xbox One Controllers Are Up for Preorder: Sport Blue and Night Ops Camo

I don't think there's ever been a better standard controller than the one that comes with Xbox One. But if you're still using a black or white controller, it might be time to add a splash of color to your gaming life. Microsoft has a wide variety of colorful controllers available, but it has just announced two new special edition designs that look pretty fantastic: Sport Blue and Night Ops Camo. They'll release later this year for $69.99 each, but you can preorder them now.

6 Big Changes in Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s PVP

By Ubisoft’s own admission, Ghost War – Ghost Recon Wildlands’ PVP mode – was an afterthought, tacked onto the campaign rather than integrated from the start. In Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ghost War has been rebuilt from scratch alongside the rest of the game, taking onboard community feedback and lessons learned from Wildlands.

Ghost War is still the same 4-vs-4 game mode at heart, but from the three hours I’ve played it already feels more satisfying, with a number of key...
