Ubisoft leaks first story details for Far Cry 4, protagonist probably isn't a white guy

You can decide how big of a grain of salt you want to take this phrase with, but Ubisoft "accidentally leaked" the first story details for Far Cry 4 by "inadvertently" putting a page for the game on the company's store. ...

Ubisoft messes with people and causes mayhem for Watch Dogs skit

Ubisoft is hitting the marketing campaign pretty hard for next week's release of Watch Dogs, and this hidden camera video is the latest product of that. Regular folks looking for a cheap cell phone repair unknowingly hack streetlights, cars, and an ATM in Los Angeles. It's all fun and games until things take a turn and the authorities show up looking for answers.

Ubisoft: Far Cry 4 launching this November  photo
Ubisoft: Far Cry 4 launching this November
by Kyle MacGregor

Far Cry 4 will launch on November 18 in the United States and November 20 in EMEA territories, Ubisoft announced today. The open-world first-person shooter is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Sorry, Wii U fans.

Here's Ubisoft's synopsis:

"Taking a sharp turn away from the lush island jungles of the top-rated Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4 is set in Kyrat, an untamed region currently ruled by a despotic self-appointed king. But don’t be lulled into a false sense of security by the achingly beautiful views; Kyrat is a wild land full of perils. Once again, players will be able to craft their own stories as they travel through this exotic open world teeming with wildlife – using their wits along with an assortment of powerful weapons and diverse vehicles."

The publisher also revealed the follow-up to Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal in association with Red Storm Entertainment and the publisher's Toronto, Shanghai, and Kiev studios. We'll have more details come E3 time.

Far Cry 4 will have a limited edition, (because of course it will) which includes a trio of single player missions featuring Far Cry 3's Hurk. To get in on that action and acquire Hurk’s harpoon gun, "The Impaler," you need only pre-order the game. Pre-order now! Sigh.

On a more personal note... YES! Far Cry is the best! I love Far Cry!

Everything you need to know about Watch Dogs in nine minutes
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

We're officially two weeks away from the release of Ubisoft's first major AAA launch of the year with Watch Dogs. We've been bombarded with screens, trailers, and so many different collector's editions. So I'm glad the game is finally nearing release, if only because I'm tired of the media barrage.

At this point I just want to play it. All this pre-hype is killing my hype! Of course, if you're still hyped up then you should watch this nine-minute video giving you the 101 on what to expect out of the game.

Okay Sunset Overdrive, you have my attention

So I probably was the only one on this planet that wasn't hyped on Insomniac's Sunset Overdrive. Last time I got excited for one of their games, well, you know what happened. Of course it's obvious Insomniac learned from the...

After some misinformation went out stating that Watch Dogs would be 1080p on the PlayStation 4, the Ubisoft blog has finally confirmed the real resolutions. It will be 900p on the PlayStation 4, and 792p on the Xbox One. Both...

Insomniac didn't play it safe with the Sunset Overdrive box art

This week was the big blowout for Sunset Overdrive, the next game from Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac and one of the major Xbox One exclusives at this point in time. Given Sunset's colorful nature and the studio's co...

Sunset Overdrive gameplay video gives some context to the insanity

Confused as to what Sunset Overdrive's about? You wouldn't be alone. Up until now, all we've gotten is a stylish teaser at E3 and a slow trickle of nebulous marketing materials. But, this video finally gives us something con...

Watch Dogs character trailer shows who you can trust

Because of his hacking prowess, Aiden Pierce has a whole city at his fingertips in Watch Dogs. Still, you didn't think that he'd be having a go at it alone, did you? No, Aiden has an entire thuggish, ruggish cast working with him to ensure his preferred brand of mayhem. Meet them all here, or just wait to have one (or more) of them inevitably backstab you on May 27.

Sunset Overdrive is more Jet Set Radio than I was expecting

Insomniac Games has properly revealed its Xbox One parkour zombie shooter Sunset Overdrive and, as much as I was into the original E3 2013 teaser for the game, the real thing looks considerably better. The studio captured tha...

I see what they did there: Full Bore stars a wild pig

As it turns out, pigs are a lot smarter than we typically give them credit for. That could be the inspiration behind the open-world puzzle platformer Full Bore, which stars a digging boar as it journeys through ancient ruins...

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is out of Early Access with version 1.0

In most cases, I like to pass on alpha and even beta builds of games in favor of waiting for a more polished, more realized "full release" version. That's especially true if I think I'm going to really like the game in quest...

This is what's included in Watch Dogs' Season Pass

Yakuza Ishin came to PS3 & PS4 to do right by fans, just not western ones

Yakuza Ishin, released in concert with the PS4 in Japan as the best selling (not-bundled) software, is probably never releasing outside of Japan. SEGA sidestepped localizing Yakuza 5 to put all its efforts towards developing ...
