Jade Raymond is leading the way
EA has confirmed that it is working on a new Assassin's Creed-type action game.
At the UBS Global Technology Conference yesterday, CFO Blake Jorgensen said that Jade Raymond - an Ubisoft veteran who joined EA in July to found new Montreal studio, Motive - would be leading on the "gigantic action" game.

Seeking a friend for the end of the world? Good idea.
The Commonwealth is a nasty place. Even if you can handle super mutants and deathclaws, it's best to bring a buddy along if for no other reason than to have someone help h...
Placeholder file flares up again
If you pre-ordered Fallout 4 on Xbox One before October 27, 2015, and don't have your console set to Instant On, check your files -- you may have a placeholder file downloaded instead of the actual game.

The discount on GTA V was misleading
Back during the Steam Summer Sale, there was a fairly large uproar about the pricing of Grand Theft Auto V. Between the game’s launch and the Summer Sale, GTA V cost £39.99. Suddenly once the sale began, the origi...
Large, bad DLC (but free!)
God, of course it was coming. Fucking steampunk. It will never be cool or good, you're exactly like that shitty we-live-a-Victorian-lifestyle couple that everyone made fun of for their shitty thinkpiece about how great life i...
But it has 'nicely outperformed' since
Ubisoft has acknowledged that Assassin's Creed Syndicate sales have been "clearly impacted" by the performance issues of its predecessor, Assassin's Creed Unity.
In an investor call last night, Ubisoft executive Alain Martinez said: "Clearly, in our first week, we were impacted by what happened with Assassin's Creed Unity."
Just in time for Halloween

Ahem. Sorry. I watched Halloween 3: Season of the Witch last night and that jingle is stuck in my head. Also, what an odd movie. I like ...
Uplay, Ubisoft's digital rights management service and scourge in the eyes of most gamers, had one cool concept once upon a time. When the program launched, it was supposed to reward players by unlocking things through gamep...
What's another few months?
Mirror's Edge Catalyst, the long-awaited reboot/sequel/whatever to 2008's Mirror's Edge is almost upon us. We've been sitting idly, hoping to play as Faith again for seven years. The wait just got a little bit longer.
No they ruddy well aren't pre-release
[Update: Since the story was posted, the pre release tag has begun to be removed from these reviews].
Boy, Arkham Knight really is the gift that keeps on giving.
Yesterday Batman: Arkham Knight finally returned to Steam after...
Perched atop some large edifice in Assassin's Creed Syndicate's London, I hesitated. Many slickly-presented columns of light reached toward the sky in all directions -- each one indicating yet another thing to do in an effort...
Or so they say
I'm a fan of the Just Cause series for its freedom of movement, particularly when it comes to aerial antics, but some people live for all-out destruction. Others, like Destructoid reader Coil_Whine, are into the story. That's...
The magnitude of Assassin's Creed is as great as ever this year. Syndicate's London is said to be 30 percent larger than Assassin's Creed Unity's size, and it feels every inch of it. Upon unlocking the open world, simply navi...
Well, not Fallout 4...or Shelter
After Fallout 4 was announced, Steam discounted the preceding entries in the Fallout series. Steam has now done this again, ahead of Fallout 4's November 10 release date, just in case you did not buy any of them last time. Th...
Let me tell you, friend
It's very early in the morning and some Assassin's Creed Syndicate reviews just landed. Except ours didn't. So, what gives? Are we the hip slackers who are too cool to turn our homework in on time? Is this our half-heart...
Took long enough
"London Calling" is a very good song by The Clash, a very good punk band. Through its staccato'd guitars and less-than-frantic pace, it tells of social and political concern in England's capital. There's a feel-good veneer c...
Or that song by War
Next week, certain areas of Grand Theft Auto Online will look less like societal mayhem and more like a west coast rap video. Car after car will be lined up with owners standing proudly next to their virtual popped ...
There's still time, Avalanche
Just Cause revels in its penchant for doing everything over-the-top. It wants you to hang upside-down from a helicopter, plant C4, dive toward the earth as the whirlybird explodes above you, grapple onto another helicopter, h...
It's just a lot of naked running
Are you ready for this? Before you start, you're going to want to get the feeling right. Maybe wear some cologne. Whatever you do, do not -- I repeat, do not -- turn on the TV.

The logo has a dog's butt!
I was as pleasantly surprised as Darren to see Home Free, a survival game about a lost dog in a randomly generated city, reach its funding goal on Kickstarter in under a week. More good news: it's coming to PlayStation 4 in a...
Sometimes, that's all you need
I'm looking forward to closing out the year with a month of Just Cause 3.

Humanity's the underdog
Well, that didn't take Ubisoft long, eh? Yesterday's tease via stream lasted only a day before the French publisher couldn't stand the excitement anymore and announced Far Cry Primal. Here's what we've learned since then.
But watch out for pirates
Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread) is making an open-world MMO about building airships, flying them to floating islands, and screwing over others (probably). You interested?
The developers were in town, so we sent Rey to take a look at that game, Worlds Adrift, and he put together this in-depth video with narration provided by designer Luke Williams.
We don't know what's in it
Bethesda opened pre-orders for the Fallout 4 Season Pass today, but hold up for a minute.
We know it's $29.99, and that the game's first DLC is expected to roll out in 2016. We also know that there won't be platform-exclusive...
Exciting new places to die in!
ARK: Survival Evolved has added some variety to its tropical, Jurassic Park-with-no-guardrails, vibe in its latest update. Two new biomes, including a snow covered, mountainous tundra filled with huge direwolves and towering ...
Big Boss Extreme
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is real accommodating. That's not to say there aren't bouts of frustrating mission failures and humiliating chicken hat offers, but all things considered (even without the time-slowing Reflex mode), it is way more forgiving than past Metal Gear and other stealth games.
Almost too easy.
This TTP Hardcore Mod does the following:

I write, you read -- that's the arrangement we have here. It has worked fabulously for the past three years (except for those of you who hate me). As if a substitute teacher were in class, I'm going to take it a bit easy on y...
Hard drives...hard drives never change
There ain't so much room on these newfangled "next gen" consoles after two years' worth of games up in 40GB territory. The expansive Fallout 4 won't be too much of a size hog, according to the official Xbox One store, which c...
Console warriors, lay down your arms
Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 4 will not have time-exclusive DLC on any platform.
Responding to a query on Twitter, VP of marketing Pete Hines stated that there were no plans to have an exclusivity deal with "anyone."
Target Practice (R&D Platform)
I've played enough Side Ops in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that, hell, I might as well go for full completion. That's not advisable, by the way. There's 157 of them. Some are novel. Others sure aren't. Even with the ...
