Cue the cries of 'caving to SJWs'
Great news everyone, Assassin's Creed Syndicate will feature the series' first transgender character! Ned Wynert is a trans male NPC who will provide quests to either of the playable characters.
This announcement co...
City of London, City of London
With October nearly here, it's about that time for Ubisoft to release another entry in its annual time-traveling trek through history. While Assassin's Creed has had highs and lows, no one can deny it's one of the few series ...
Bethesda, Ubisoft, and more to join in?
It looks like EA might be looking to expand EA Access (its subscription service on Xbox One that gives access to a whole host of EA games) to PC, and to include other publishers, if a survey sent out by market research compan...
Totally not Destiny
It's been a slow gaming quarter in the sense that we haven't had any big releases sans a few titles like Metal Gear Solid V. So it's no surprise that retailers are tossing out discounts left and right to entice gamers. Funsto...
Bit less client inception happening now
Many people really, really hate Ubisoft’s uPlay platform. It’s seen as an unnecessary thing that stands between people and their games, especially when combined with a second client like Steam.
Launching a uPlay-e...
...but there are more to come, it seems
Rainbow Six Siege will launch with ten playable maps.
Talking to PCGamer, level designer Benoit Deschamps said that the team originally had over 50 ideas for different environments, but had to narrow down the optio...
It's part of the season pass, too
Assassin's Creed Syndicate's set in Victorian London, and that seems like a great opportunity to get one of England's greatest villains in a video game. Ubisoft's carpe diem-ing. At Sony's Tokyo Game Show press briefing, a Ja...
UbiBlog meets community
In recent years, Ubisoft has constantly pushed for some kind of web of interconnectivity with Assassin's Creed. There are companion apps, franchise hubs, and forums to tie the community together. Now, Ubisoft's trying someth...
More than three hours of music
Since his work on flOw, Austin Wintory has been fairly well-known in the indie game scene. He has since provided the soundtrack for Journey, The Banner Saga, Monaco, and other small titles. All those years of creating unique ...
Climb a tower to find the concessions
Imagine riding a roller coaster to the track's very peak before plummeting straight down in an Assassin's Creed-branded "Leap of Faith." Or, envision you're playing a game of laser tag, but it's molded after some sort of Rain...
...Redeem on uPlay
Years ago, my friends and I used to make a habit of sneaking up on one another from behind and putting each other in headlocks. We called it "Splinter Celling." We also called series protagonist Sam Fisher "Tom Clancy" as a l...
And none of the stabbing
Without a doubt, the best part of every year's Assassin's Creed game is the setting. It was certainly the case for Unity's Paris. Ubisoft generally does a great job of making these city sandboxes feel lived-in and livel...
'War never ends'
I had forgotten about Tom Clancy's EndWar Online. It was originally announced just about two years ago, took on some alpha playtesters, and went dark to everybody else. Today, it is coming out of alpha and into a closed beta ...
Almost four weeks after PS4 and Xbox One players have been zipping and stabbing around Victorian London, PC users will finally get their chance with Assassin's Creed Syndicate. Until then, they have to lurk in the shadows, wa...
Join Dickens and Darwin and fight crime
Ubisoft has revealed bonus Assassin's Creed Syndicate missions will be available for those who pre-order the game.
The missions star everyone's favourite crime-solving duo, novelist Dickens and the Theory of Evolution masterm...
Ubisoft's upcoming improbable trailer dialogue game Tom Clancy Presents (RIP) Rainbow Six: Siege will miss its October 13 release date, the company announced. The closed beta will still start September 24, but the pushed back...
Well, just 'Zombi' now
To date, ZombiU has been one of the best (and only) non-Nintendo published Wii U exclusives. It has turned into something of a cult classic, as many have praised the way that it felt more like a survival game and resiste...
Once upon a time, Rayman 4 was in the works, but was mysteriously canceled, and abruptly into Raving Rabbids. While we have no idea how good Rayman 4 may have actually been, based on this report from Unseen64, it s...
Or says he does for a paycheck
Gustavo Fring, international meth lord, loves Rainbow Six Siege. That's what he said in this Ubisoft-released video wherein a handful of celebrities say a lot of nice things about the game. Maybe take this with a grain of sa...
I...have..the power! (of DLC)
Over the years, I haven't really paid that much attention to the Toy Soldiers series. I mean, I played them a bit, but never truly gave the games their due. With War Chest however, the crazy injection of nostalgic I...
A.I. grown home
Grow Home released on PC earlier this year, and it sort of took us by surprise. This is an Ubisoft game? The publisher currently best known for squirting out iteration after iteration of Assassin's Creed is doing a game ...
For the love of money, Level-5 and Ubisoft are joining forces to put out Yo-Kai Watch Dance: Just Dance Special Version, a crossover (for Wii U of all things) that's a sure-fire bet to sell millions.
Despite not liking Mario
Remember when Rayman creator Michel Ancel admitted he doesn't like Mario games? They weren't his cup of tea, he said, which is silly, because of course they are not a cup of tea, belonging to him or otherwise.
Anyways, be the...
Turns out the books work on launch day
Long-time reader, first-time tipper and professional stand-up comedian Sarah Maywalt sent me the picture above that she took in the Powell's Books, an independent bookstore in Portland, Oregon.
Powell's reminds us that ...
There's no place like London
It's not often we get to see a series recognize that things may have gotten off track. As many no doubt remember, Assassin's Creed Unity got hit hard with criticisms about its technical performance and odd design decisio...
'Shifting its development force'
If you're in the small subset of people who: 1) enjoy Ubisoft's weird ass open world racing game The Crew, 2) play it only on the Xbox 360, and 3) are excited for the upcoming Wild Run expansion (November 17) , then I have ba...
Make Martin Sahlin the King of Games
The true star of E3 is back, now at gamescom. Nervously taking to stage once more, Martin Sahlin and Yarny showed off some live gameplay of Unravel while giving a heartfelt speech about what presenting at E3 really meant to ...
"That's...that's where we are!!!"
[pulls pud over close ups of lil flags on the uniforms]
That stuff is expensive, I've heard
Look at all these nice people saying nice things about Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Wildlands. The compliments aren't the reason we're sharing it, though; we just figured maybe you wanted to watch a guy walk menacingly toward a pig...
Is it too late?
Early Wii U owners should know all about ZombiU. Depending on who you ask, it was a decent to great zombie survival game and a much-needed one at that. Years later, Ubisoft is bringing it to other platforms -- PC, PlayStatio...
