FirstLook Issue 9 Launched - Features Titanfall, Watch_Dogs, Wolfenstein: The New Order and More!

LONDON, UK 20th September, 2013: Cranberry Publishing has announced that the ninth issue of the free digital magazine FirstLook is now available to read via GamerZines.com, PreOrder-IQ.com and Issuu.com.

FirstLook is a free e-magazine which regularly features previews, interviews and features on the most highly anticipated game releases heading to Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 3 and next-gen consoles.

This issue is based around every game the FirstLook crew witnessed at gamescom and stars the undisputed 'Shooter of the Show', Titanfall. Fellow blockbusters Watch_Dogs, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, The Elder Scrolls Online and The Sims 4 also feature but this issue isn't just about the big dogs.

"In the games industry it's always tempting to just focus on the big titles, but for FirstLook we actively strive against that. Sure this month's mag is adorned with a rather resplendent mech ripped from Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall, but if readers delve inside the massive 80-page issue they'll also find more understated and radical releases like Firefly's Stronghold Crusader II and Next Car Game from Bugbear Entertainment,rdquo; explained Andy Griffiths, editor of FirstLook.

ldquo;In this issue we try to give a complete picture of what was seen at gamescom 2013, with coverage that isn't skewed by platform preferences. There's no next-gen hardware talk here, instead the discussion remains purely about the games.rdquo;

Inside FirstLook magazine there are direct links to PreOrder-IQ.com associated with every game featured, so it's possible for an individual to learn about and secure a copy of a product they care about in just a few clicks. Additionally FirstLook Magazine can also be easily embedded on any web page, be it a publisher's website, product blog, or community forum.

FirstLook is available as a downloadable .PDF every month via GamerZines.com and PreOrder-IQ.com and there's also the ability to view each issue in a browser via Issuu.com. The latter option means that readers can catch up on the latest issue by PC, tablet or phone without the need to download any additional software.
