Trials Fusion will be late on PC, but there's a beta soon

Originally slated for an April 16, 2014 launch across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, Trials Fusion is now going to be a bit late on the latter platform. It's a Ubisoft game, after all. The new date for PC is April...

Have a look behind the scenes of Child of Light

We've said it plenty of times but Ubisoft's upcoming Child of Light looks wonderful; it's got a wonderfully lush, hand-drawn quality that's not too dissimilar from the recent Rayman games. As we find out in the video above, ...

Ubisoft used the Watch Dogs delay to add new content

Remember how Watch Dogs didn't launch alongside the new consoles like it was supposed to? Nah, you've probably forgotten by now. Anyway, it looks like something good's going to come out of that delay apart from, you know...

Ubisoft: It'll take the average player 35-40 hours to beat Watch Dogs

Do we still care about game lengths? Really, truly care? (I say "we" as if we're some sort of hive mind, which obviously and thankfully isn't the case.) Probing for Watch Dogs information on Twitter, a fan asked how long it w...

Witcher 3 delayed, Angry Birds gets Epic, and an Ouya game about Slavery photo
Witcher 3 delayed, Angry Birds gets Epic, and an Ouya game about Slavery
by Max Scoville

Everyone’s off playing Titan Souls or Darkfall or whathaveyou, so news this week is a lot of non-news. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt has been delayed, which sucks, but apparently won’t derail Cyberpunk 2077. Sony shakes its head and frowns on the subject of release dates for The Last Guardian and Drive Club, and apparently Watchdogs isn’t late, Ubisoft just told us about it really early. Angry Birds just took a turn for the turn-based, Halfbrick’s latest game is about a bear destroying precious works of art, and there’s an Ouya exclusive on the way where you play as an escaped slave. On the VR front, Valve’s head VR dude has gone over to Oculus, hopefully to develop ways to terrify stars of other HBO series, and Sony’s rumored to be revealing their virtual reality hat at GDC next week.

Also, check out this ridiculous Lil Jon video.

Early arrival in Chicago? Watch Dogs may be getting a closed beta

Watch Dogs will be late on Wii U to 'make full use of the platform'

I'm increasingly of the opinion that nothing short of a miracle will save the delayed Wii U version of the already-delayed Watch Dogs. Ubisoft announced a May 27, 2014 release date for every other version of the game today. W...
