First Look Issue 5 Launched

LONDON, UK 16th MAY 2013: Cranberry Publishing has announced that the fifth issue of the free-to-read digital magazine FirstLook is now live on

Over the past four issues FirstLook, a digital publication dedicated to covering the biggest releases for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita platforms, has attracted over 1.4 million impressions and the fifth issue is set to raise that number even higher with exclusive previews of Company of Heroes 2, Grand Theft Auto 5, Watch Dogs, The Lord of the Rings Online, Beyond: Two Souls and lots of other releases which range from small 'indie' experiences to top-tier titles. In addition to all this content we also have an exclusive interview with Relic Entertainment, where we discuss the Canadian developer's new owner SEGA and what it was like to be part of THQ during the now defunct publisher's final days.

"FirstLook is becoming a major player in the e-mag scene, and the fifth issue of our publication stands as an example of how the magazine is growing in both popularity and scope," said Andy Griffiths, editor of FirstLook magazine.

“We have the latest word on megaton releases like Grand Theft Auto 5, Watch Dogs and Company of Heroes 2, while at the same time we also have detailed previews on more niche games like Paradox Interactive's Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition and Daedelic Entertainment's imaginative old-school point-and-click adventure, Night of the Rabbit. At we adopt a well-rounded approach to games coverage with news, interviews, previews, reviews and guides detailing all genres, tastes and disciplines, and FirstLook magazine provides the ideal housing for all that content.”

Additionally FirstLook Magazine can also be easily embedded on any HTML-supported platform, be it a publisher's website, product blog, or community forum.
