A big blog about the results of the Halo 5: Guardians beta can be seen on the Halo Waypoint website. With 20 million games played resulting in a little over 2.5 million hours of gameplay, there is a lot to take away from the beta that ran late last year to early January. For those not a fan of sprint and Spartan abilities, there will be an option in custom games to turn these two things off. Time will tell if a playlist would feature sprint and Spartan abilities turned off. Controls will be modified to fix conflicts between ground pound and crouch jumping along with other movement adjustments. If you found zooming in on a DMR to be a bad experience, don't worry, as that will also be adjusted. Other details and info on what else will be tweaked and modified can be read here. If you'd like to leave your own feedback along with participating in surveys, you can check out the Halo Community Feedback Program here.
Warhammer: End of Times - Vermintide is a new four player co-op first person game coming from developer Fatshark. The setting takes place under Ubersreik where players choose one of five heroes to battle the Skaven, nasty looking rat-creatures. The game will come to PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 sometime later this year.
After being confirmed for PC last year, Assassin's Creed Rogue official release date is March 10th. Previously on Xbox 360 and PS3 last year, the PC version will feature eye tracking integration.

Simply pre-ordering gets you access to a new mission as well as new weapons to take enemies out with. Pre-ordering gets you two bonus packs; The Siege of Fort de Sable and The Explorer.
