Heatwave continues with north-west set to be hot spot
The north-west of England and the western fringes of Scotland look set to be the warmest parts of the country on Saturday as the heatwave continues.
Temperatures could hit 30C (86F) along the west of Great Britain, but cooler and cloudier weather is expected on much of the east coast.
Emergency services have issued a range of warnings, including calls for people to avoid sunburn and prevent fires.
Next week temperatures could get up to the mid-30s, BBC Weather predicted.
In England the Met Office has issued level three heatwave warnings – meaning health services should take action to protect “high-risk” groups such as the elderly and young children – for the North West, the East Midlands and the South West.
Level two “alert and readiness” warnings have been issued for the Yorkshire and the Humber, the East Midlands, the South East and London.
Health services in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – which all had their hottest day of the year on Friday – are not part of the Met Office heatwave warning system, but public health bodies have urged people to take care in the hot weather.
More than double the pre-orders achieved by previous record-holder Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
Assassins Creed III is the most pre-ordered game in Ubisoft’s history, the publisher announced today.
Global pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III have already more than double the figure achieved by last year’s Assassin’s Creed Revelations, which held Ubisoft’s previous pre-order record.
Assassin’s Creed III will be available on October 31 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, November 23 on PC and during the launch window for the Wii U.
Bethesda has announced Dishonored DLC.
Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials releases in December for £3.99 / €4.99 or 400 Microsoft Points simultaneously on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
It includes 10 challenge maps each with 10 distinct trials designed to test your combat, stealth and mobility skills. These trials include an arena battle against waves of enemy AI, drop assassinations and a race against the clock. There are new achievements and trophies and a global online leaderboard.
That’s the first DLC. The second and third add-ons will launch in 2013 simultaneously on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and each features a story-driven campaign.
Daud, the leader of a group of supernatural assassins known as ‘The Whalers’, is at the centre of the second DLC, due early spring 2013. Expect new Dunwall locales and Daud’s own set of weapons, powers and gadgets. Bethesda described it as a “story-driven” campaign. How you play and the choices you make impact the final outcome, it said.
Brilliant news as this is my GOTY upto yet and even though i rented it i shall be grabbing it in the near future.
EA this week pulled from its own website its claim that Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s single-player campaign is 10 hours long.
As late as Tuesday 23rd October 2012, the day the game launched in the US, EA.com’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter FAQ claimed the single-player was “roughly 10 hours”.
Here’s what the FAQ said:
“Approximately how long is the single player campaign?”
“The single-player campaign will consist of roughly 10 hours of action ripped straight from the headlines and missions of Tier 1 Operators from around the globe with 12 full-missions each taking place in a different “hotspot” of the world.”
So 5 hours on easy mode hmmm.
