Wednesday's Rewards - 23/04/2014

Hey gamers,

Hope you had a great Easter's packed full of gaming glory. Today's Playfire Rewards update packs Conquest of Champions, which melds the tactical deck-building of a card game like Magicka, and the table-top carnage of the Warhammer franchise. It looks pretty interesting, so take a look!

We're also adding a new Rewards Head-2-Head today, so keep an eye out later on. We'll need your vote before this coming Friday, just in time for the weekend's Rewards Special. Finger on the buzzer!

Playfire Rewards BETA - Dark Souls II Special

Prepare to die... again!

From Software's hardcore action-RPG makes a welcome return - at least for the masochists among us. For those gamers who are a sucker for punishment and are dying for a game that test their skills to the max, the next instalment in the Dark Souls series is definitely for you.

To soften the blow, we've put together a bittersweet package of rewards that can earn you up to £5.50 of GMG Credit for unlocking the achievements! Play Dark Souls II within the first 3 days of it's 24th April release to get a bonus £0.50 and new users to Playfire will get a bonus £1.50 for linking their Steam account within the first week (24th April - 30th April).

Tuesday's Rewards - 22/04/2014

Welcome back!

If you're lucky enough, like some of us, you'll have sneaked away to enjoy a lovely four day weekend - just what's needed to recharge those batteries, ready for another action-packed week. If we can pull ourselves away from Trials Fusion - instant retry is the bane of all productivity - we'll be looking forward to the PC release of Dark Souls II. Well, "looking forward to" in the same way you tell your friends you're looking forward to breaking yet another controller/keyboard.

Anyway, let's not mull over the pain yet to come! Today's Playfire Rewards BETA features Millie and Always Remember Me, backdating the rewards to their releases last Friday, and FRACT OSC that makes it's debut later today.
