The wonderful Rayman Origins is now playable on Xbox One

Can we take a moment to appreciate how well Rayman Origins turned out? After a slew of ports, 3D sequels, and spin-offs, Ubisoft finally worked its way back to the series' side-scrolling roots for a modern successor and the end result was t...

Ubisoft sort of fixes The Division's Incursion issues

Ubisoft has dropped a patch which tackles the cheesy completion of The Division’s Incursion mode, Falcon Lost. But rather than address the glitchy issues themselves, the patch has revised how you fight the final boss, and now requires...

Division players get 150 free Phoenix Credits this weekend

Ubisoft is trying to make good with people who have had to put up with glitches, bugs, and inconveniences in The Division since its early March launch. The way it intends to do that is by offering level 30 players a nice chunk of the g...

Ubisoft's canceled 1666 resurfaces as trademark

Patrice Désilets was the creative director of Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft's cash cow from which all its games seem to be modeled (endlessly reproducable open-world systems from now until end, amen). He left the company in 2010 and went...

Ubisoft's looking into how to punish people who glitch The Division's toughest new boss

This week's Incursions update to The Division brought many changes to the game, including Falcon Lost -- the most difficult mission to date. It's considered end-game content, and Ubisoft won't even let people play it unless their entir...

You can (maybe) dress up as an Assassin or Sam Fisher in The Division now

You can’t throw a stick around here lately without hitting news about The Division, I know, but given this might be shinier news rather than the crap about characters being wiped and that maddeningly restrictive trade scheme, what the...

Far Cry Primal adds Survivor Mode and 4K textures

A hella-of-a-lot of video games came out yesterday, from Dark Souls III to Ratchet & Clank, but perhaps you're short on cash, barely making rent, waiting on a tax refund (or, in my case, owe the IRS way too much). Maybe you want to take...

People aren't losing their Division characters after all

Some worrying news came out of the Incursions update to The Division yesterday. A good handful of folks playing on Xbox One logged in to find that their characters were missing, seemingly mysteriously deleted. It's unknown what percent...

The Division's latest patch is deleting characters on Xbox One

Players can trade gear in The Division now, but no one's making money off of it

Any persistent game with rare loot drops will naturally have its share of players looking to take shortcuts. Titles like World of Warcraft and Dota 2 have entire economies that thrive on the sale of in-game items for real wor...

Division players best go convert all their materials tonight

People who play Tom Clancy's The Division would be wise to take a break tonight from saving New York City from looters and ne'er-do-wells. Instead, they should play the part of imaginary Jo-Ann's Fabrics employees, laying all the craft...

Eye-tracking tech makes The Division's cluttered UI way more bearable

The Division has best-selling week one for any new IP

The Division shares its DNA with a lot of Ubisoft games but it is technically not a sequel and it isn't exactly based on existing property (despite the "Tom Clancy's" in the title). That makes it a "new IP."  And this new IP went beyon...
