LONDON, UK 19th July, 2013: Cranberry Publishing has announced that the seventh issue of free digital magazine FirstLook is now available to read, via GamerZines.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 stars the crazy open-world sequel Saints Row IV, in addition to a host of special motorsport titles including NASCAR: The Game 2013, Gran Turismo 6 and the latest iteration of Codemasters award-winning racer, F1 2013. The immensely popular MMORPG Guild Wars 2 and the future console emergence of Diablo III also star in their own dedicated features.

"Our readers are constantly reaching out to us, making us aware of what kind of games they're interested in and in this month's magazine we responded directly to their requests with previews of all the big forthcoming racing games heading to store shelves before the end of 2013,” said Andy Griffiths, editor of FirstLook magazine.

“This issue isn't all about fast cars though! Deep Silver and Volition were kind enough to let us sample a hefty amount of Saints Row IV a month before it's released and we got to chat with ArenaNet about how Guild Wars 2 will change the way game developers think about MMO updates. This content is just a snapshot of what's available in the August issue of FirstLook, but the calibre of games involved are indicative of how FirstLook's relevance and impact is growing in the increasingly competitive e-mag scene.”

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 which 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 still available as a downloadable .PDF every month via GamerZines.com and PreOrder-IQ.com, but the ability to view each issue in a browser means that readers can catch up on the latest issue by PC, tablet or phone without the need to download any additional software.
