[Twirls mustache passive-aggressively]
Jay-Z's gonna be pissed. Brooklyn goes hard, but not as far as Ubisoft's next Tom Clancy game is concerned. In fact, it doesn't go at all.
In an interview with The Examiner, developer Massive Entertainment reveals that t...
Good things don't happen in caves. A best-case scenario has some bats buzzing through your hair. A worst-case scenario? Ummm, bears or dragons or satanic cults. OR, satanic bears riding dragons. Yeah, fuck that.
But is it big enough for you? (TWSS)
If you’d been wondering just how big The Division’s post-apocalyptic world is going to be, I have some news for you.
YouTuber Arrekz has shared a new video which details the borders of the shooter’s playgrou...
Never a dull moment in gaming!
Keeping up with gaming news can be bloody hard.
In gaming terms, a week is an eternity, so here we are with this handy-dandy breakdown of the past week’s most important, interesting, or downright bizarre gaming ne...
Set for a December 21, 2016 debut
Justin Kurzel, Michael Fassbender, and Marion Cotillard's (the Macbeth Trinity) Assassin's Creed movie has wrapped, as of yesterday. Now the film enters post-production as it gears up for its December 21, 2016 release date. F...
Times are ruff
I didn't realize The Division had dogs in it, let alone that they would poop (let alone that said poop would look like that). I'm now imagining the conversations that presumably took place at Ubisoft leading up to this idea being formed, pitched, conceptualized, implemented, and refined.
Eyes trained on Ubisoft?
Many in video game circles know Vivendi solely for its role in owning Activision Blizzard in recent years. The timeline of events looks something like this: The French mass media company owned a controlling stake in Activisio...
A week or so ago I drove through Hell Niño in Los Angeles to get my hands on Tom Clancy's The Division in a 2002 Dodge Neon with bad windshield wipers. Let no one ever deny that I am committed. Alongside Ubisoft reps, ...
Ubisoft confirms beta testing weekend
Ubisoft has confirmed that The Division’s next beta will start on January 28, 2016.
According to a recent tweet, the closed beta test will be available on Xbox One from January 28 and on PC and PlayStation 4 from Januar...
Well, I think it does anyway
After a trailer accidentally went up too early, and then was pulled, and was then mirrored and shared and Streisanded all over the place, Ubisoft has now officially released yesterday’s leaked trailer for The Division.
Hide and Sikh
When the Chronicles series was announced, my response was mixed. I mean, it's cool that we're getting to see new settings outside of the usual suspect after all, but by that same token, I'd rather see those new areas in a fully-fledged 3D game.
These Prince of Persia inspired 2.5D gaidens (including last year's China) are the next best thing though, albeit with some provisos.
For Honor producer Stephane Cardin has provided an update of sorts for the project by way of Ubisoft's YouTube channel, and development seems to be coming along nicely. One big revelation however is that Cardin and his ...
You're not my supervisor!
There's no small irony in Ubisoft, a company that very much likes getting money, releasing a trailer advising of the perils of handling money. Don't handle money, don't lick money, don't eat money. Do you want diseases? 'Cau...
A better Watch_Dogs than Watch_Dogs
I really liked Watch_Dogs. Sure the graphics weren’t what we were shown at first, Aiden Pearce was an unlikable dick, and it wasn’t the most optimised thing in the world, but I still had a lot of fun hacking an e...
Breakdowns of three Chronicles outfits
Say what you will about the Assassin's Creed series and Ubisoft's need to annualized it, but one thing's for sure -- the cosplay that's come out of this scene has been pretty awesome. Whether it's the flowing cloaks or t...
Keeping it Clancy
A wide assortment of titles is nowhere to be found with this week's Humble Bundle. Instead, Tom Clancy is the name and tactical espionage is the game. It's the game about ten times over, in fact.
As a part of the build-up tow...
Update 1.2 is live on PC
As it stands, Rainbow Six Siege is at the top of my "eventually!" list. While plenty of people seem to be enjoying the game as it stands, I'm fine waiting for Ubisoft to push out more patches. The latest update was released t...
Not so brutal
Like its animals that can be turned into tender companions, Far Cry Primal's PC requirements had the opportunity to cause havoc. That has certainly been the case with some recent high-profile games, such as Star Wars Battlefr...
Prehistoric Hurk or we riot
You won't be playing with anyone other than tigers, wolves, and whatever beasts are in Far Cry Primal. Community manager Jason Paradise confirmed on the game's Steam forum that Far Cry Primal is going to be a single...
'Deep dive' trailer
Ubisoft brought the Assassin's Creed Chronicles series back from the brink with recent confirmation for two new entries, India and Russia, that are coming in hot. The former is out next week, January 12, on PC, PS4, and Xbox...
An extra year of development is good
Ever since Assassin's Creed II in 2009, Ubisoft's popular stab-'em-up series has seen at least one major release every year. 2014 even saw two games, Rogue and Unity. Critics of the series argue that this relentless release s...
"Hello, Initiate." Those are the opening words to Assassin's Creed Syndicate. "Initiate" is you, the player, as the last several Assassin's Creed games (Black Flag, Rogue, Unity, and Syndicate) have made you the out...
Local co-op mode possibly?
Here’s a fun little bit of game history for you. According to DualShockers, who attended a talk by Julien Merceron in Paris, Assassin’s Creed was originally going to have a multiplayer mode.
While this feature was...
Better than that Silent Night trailer...
The Division isn’t getting a public beta test until early next year, but there have been some very closed, very NDA’d alpha tests running recently. Here’s some leaked gameplay footage of that alpha thanks t...
You'll just need a referral code
Ubisoft is holding a free weekend event for Rainbow Six Siege on PC. You'll need to score an access key from a pal (or a friendly stranger) who owns the game, but that shouldn't be hard.
Current players can send up to four Si...
Bring back the world that we loved
All is not calm, all is not right. Not in The Division's war-torn city. "Mom and dad died in the blast." "Everything on earth fell apart." That's a big old lump of coal for humanity, eh?
"Silent Night" is no stranger to vide...
There's also some less flashy updates
Rainbow Six Siege has been out on PC for a little while now, and has been happily chugging along with merely very, very high definition textures. Somehow, it has been getting along just fine with only 1080p visuals, which we ...
Syndicate Savings galore
Today's 12 Deals of Christmas is Assassin's Creed-flavoured, with discounts available for the standard and Gold digital editions of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, as well as savings on the Season Pass.
From now until 11.59pm GMT...
Assassin's Creed Syndicate has been teasing its Jack the Ripper DLC for weeks now, but this is the first time we've had a really good gander at it. All told, it actually looks quite meaty, and the new story trailer isn't hal...
So close, yet so far
Rayman has had a good run of it as of late. The last two console games -- Origins and Legends -- were fantastic platformers worthy of the highest praise. Now Ubisoft is testing the franchise's viability in the ...
