Less Massive: Ubi Reflections has a hand in The Division

As it turns out, Tom Clancy's The Division won't be entirely the brain-child of Massive Entertainment. For a few months now, UK-based developer Ubisoft Reflections has been contributing to the open-world shooter, as repo...

Massive: The Division on PC won't be just a port

Anyone that's concerned that the PC version of Tom Clancy's The Division will get the short end of the procedurally destroyed stick can breathe a bit easier. According to the developers, PC's getting the same love and ca...

Rainbow Six: Vegas free for Xbox Live Gold members photo
Rainbow Six: Vegas free for Xbox Live Gold members
by Jordan Devore

The latest free game from Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion is another one you may have gotten years ago, but if not, great -- it's worth nabbing. Queue your download for Rainbow Six: Vegas over here. This is one of the rare few that I never got around to playing, so don't mind if I do. More than anything, I was eager to share that infamous picture of the baby-faced soldier.

Barring a change of heart, we know what to expect from Microsoft in terms of free games by now. Glad I didn't have particularly high expectations going into this. You could argue that we should be thankful for getting anything at all, and I see that point, but it would've been in the company's best interest to delight us. Microsoft could use some goodwill right now.

Rainbow 6: Patriots is still in production, says Ubisoft

Reminding me that the game even existed in the first place, IGN has gotten word from Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre that Rainbow 6: Patriots is "still cooking. It's an important franchise for Ubisoft. We want to make ...

Massive: The Division's player versus player is its hook

It's no secret that Ubisoft is aiming to blur the line between single- and multiplayer experiences. That's the predominant theme with a lot of its upcoming titles. Surprisingly, the Tom Clancy's The Division developers d...

A refresher on all of Splinter Cell: Blacklist's assets

This latest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer reads like the Cliff's Notes to all the previous Blacklist trailers, summarizing the game's various aspects. There's the silly, hyper-organized terrorist attacks on the United Sta...

Massive prepared for The Division by eating leaves

Prior to the reveal of Tom Clancy's The Division at E3, Ubisoft shot a behind-the-scenes video with Massive to document everyone's emotions in the days leading up to the announcement of the game. There's a lot of normal...

The Division might make its way to PC after all

One of the highlights of E3 this year was Ubisoft's reveal of Tom Clancy's The Division, but it came with a glaring omission. Its release was announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but no mention of PC. That might cha...

The Division has me absolutely giddy right now
by Brett Makedonski

Tom Clancy's The Division is to E3 2013 as Watch Dogs was to E3 2012. It's the game at the show that has a ton of buzz around it, as everyone realizes that it's built around a genuinely cool concept. At the same time, everyone wonders if it can possibly live up to the hype.

I really, really hope The Division meets expectations.

And I think it can. The reasoning is that The Division is not only built around an intriguing theory, but seems like it'll have the perfect infrastructure to support it. I was shown a 15 minute hands-off demo, and I came away only wanting more.

Ubisoft depresses us with Tom Clancy's The Division

What was probably the most interesting reveal of Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference was also among the most depressing. We were led into this new IP with talk of global supply chains, a pandemic spreading on Black Friday, an...

Spies vs Mercs: Which side are you on?

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will see the return of Spies vs. Mercs. If that news didn't get you excited at all then maybe this live-action take by the gang at CorridorDigital will. Their film production and editing keeps getting better with every video, and I'm beyond impressed with their latest efforts.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is full of multiplayer goodness
by Abel Girmay

Confession time ladies and gents: I'm not a big Splinter Cell fan. I didn't much get into the first two, had an inexplicable obsession with Chaos Theory, largely passed on Double Agent, and only dabbled in Conviction.

A disgrace, I know, and a dry spell I'm increasingly tempted to break with Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It's shaping to be the biggest Splinter Cell game yet. We've seen the campaign at length, and not to be outdone, the multiplayer is bringing back Conviction's acclaimed cooperative mode, as well as the return of the fan favorite Spies vs. Mercs.

Suit up agents, we've got a lot to get through.
