The second reason this BETA exists is that the game itself must be tested for flaws by a large number of users - tiny flaws like bonus icons disappearing when you throw a thermal detonator - that's what they'll looking for.

While the next HITMAN game was until recently set for release on December 8th, it's been delayed.

Minecraft: Story Mode hits PS4, Xbox One on October 13

Good news for fans of either Minecraft or the excellent narrative titles from developer Telltale Games, as the latter's Minecraft: Story Mode is now confirmed to see release on Tuesday, October 13th. While Mojang's Minecraft proper is well-known around the world, its sandbox-style gameplay means there's no real narrative for players.
