Stones Unturned will be free to download for those who've already purchased the Season Pass, which you can do on PS4 or PC via CD Keys, if you fancy supporting Pass the Controller. Otherwise, you can pick the season pass up on your digital storefront of choice, or Stones Unturned separately for £11.99.

Ubisoft have officially unveiled Far Cry 5 after releasing a set of teaser trailers earlier in the week, which confirmed that the game will be the first in the franchise to be set within the United States.
Players will have “total freedom” to roam across the farmland, forests, mountains and rivers that make up Hope County solo or with a friend in two-player co-op, joining forces with the locals and raising a resistance movement against the cult.
As well as a mix of ground-based vehicles, players can take to the skies in planes where they’ll face off against the cult in aerial dogfights, and they’ll also be able to call upon some of the larger members of the local wildlife, such as bears and cougars, to help out during firefights.
Ubisoft also introduced us to some of the residents we’ll presumably be fighting alongside in the battle for Hope County, who you can see more of in the three trailers below.
