Monster Hunter World news: ANOTHER beta confirmed for PS4 – but what about Xbox One?

Monster Hunter World is getting another beta ahead of its January 26 release date. The final Monster Hunter World beta has been given a January 18 release and runs until January 22.

2022 World Cup migrant workers ‘systematically’ exploited, Amnesty says

Migrant workers constructing stadiums for the Qatar 2022 World Cup continue to be trapped in a vicious cycle of debt and exploitation, according to new research by Amnesty International.

The ban on the Russian flag and anthem from the Pyeongchang Games next year, combined with the slow‑drip withdrawal of medals from athletes guilty of doping…

‘If you lived in bitterness you wouldn’t enjoy anything’: Exeter’s Zimbabwean rugby exiles

For every Zimbabwean living in long-term exile, the removal of Robert Mugabe as president has stirred powerful emotions. Exeter’s Don Armand and Kai Horstmann are no different: both grew up on farms outside Harare, enjoying a youthful freedom seldom found on Britain’s frost-covered school playgrounds. Until, that is, Mugabe’s notorious fast-track land reforms drove their families out, forcing them to seek new lives elsewhere. Armand, Horstmann and their compatriot Dave Ewers have fared better than many, helping Exeter Chiefs to become England’s champions, but their sun-kissed childhood memories are still…
