UNO is coming to consoles and PC with video chat

Oh shit. UNO is getting a new video game adaptation for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 9, 2016. There was something about the camera-supporting Xbox 360 version of the card game that brought all the nasty boys to the yard, and the new Ubis...   read

Grow Home sequel Grow Up all set for August 16

Ubisoft Reflections is making a sequel to its chipper platform-adventure Grow Home. I caught the announcement trailer out of E3, but with everything else happening that week, it quickly slipped out of mind. I'm sure some of you missed it al...   read

Ubisoft doesn't care if you pronounce its name wrong

How do you pronounce Ubisoft? You can get an official look inside this issue directly from employees -- near the end, founder and CEO Yves Guillemot coyly states that "you can pronounce it the way you want." It's all "feel good" market...   read

If you're good enough, you can score Trials of the Blood Dragon for free

Later this month, Ubisoft will give away copies of Trials of the Blood Dragon on PC, but there's a very Trials catch: you have to complete the demo in 15 faults or less. Accomplish that, and you'll earn the full game for free. It's unclear...   read

Ubisoft attempts to shuffle chairs as Vivendi looms for a takeover

Ubisoft has announced today that two independent directors have been nominated as board members for the company, for approval in September. The individuals are Frédérique Dame and Florence Naviner, the former of which was...   read

The Division's recent Steam reviews are 'overwhelmingly negative'

It looks like there's been...some kind of fissure, maybe, between fans of The Division and The Division itself. The overall Steam reviews for Tom Clancy's estate's latest martial law fantasy are "Mixed" over the four months since release. T...   read

Watch Dogs 2 is on the right track

In my mind, Watch Dogs 2 has two things going for it over its predecessor: a not-dreadful protagonist (Marcus Holloway) and a sunnier, more dog-filled real-world setting (San Francisco). The rest of the changes are the sort of safe but stil...   read

The Division is getting 'significant weapon balancing'

Ubisoft is getting serious with Tom Clancy's The Division. A few weeks back the company started banning cheaters on strike one and now there's a new patch planned that will bring, "significant weapon balancing" so that, "players will have t...   read

Vivendi continues their 'it's not a hostile takeover, we promise' strategy for Ubisoft

After successfully taking over Gameloft and forcing out Michel Guillemot, Vivendi is once again setting their sights on Ubisoft, the company they constantly deny they are trying to acquire. Just days after E3 the conglomerate decided t...   read

Here's what you thought of every major 2016 E3 press conference - EA loses big, Sony wins big

This year it isn't even close. You, as in the collective beautiful Destructoid community, voted for Sony as the top E3 2016 conference. Let's take a look at the results and get the bad stuff out of the way first. You hated EA's conference t...   read

E3 2016 press conference and stream schedule

E3 has been winding down in recent years, especially with big-name publishers like EA holding their own events off the show floor, and Nintendo literally only showing Zelda at the conference in 2016. The rise of controlled digital even...   read

Ghost Recon Wildlands is underwhelming

When Ubisoft announced it was taking Ghost Recon to Bolivia almost exactly one year ago, I was kind of into it. Wildlands gave me a Far Cry vibe, but on a grander scale, and with continuous cooperative play. Sure, yes, s...   read

Everything from the Ubisoft press conference is up on Amazon

Ubisoft's press conference just ended a bit ago. The show ran something like two hours, meaning that we got some long looks at pretty much every game that was featured. Like, 15 minutes of Ghost Recon Wildlands. Most everything that was a p...   read

Everything that happened at Ubisoft's E3 2016 press conference

Ubisoft kind of does the same thing at E3 every year. It has a ho-hum conference with some lame jokes, shows footage of games we've seen before, and then saves a decent reveal for the end. I don't know if I "enjoyed" this conference with it...   read

Watch Dogs 2 looks alright, but do we really need a Watch Dogs film?

This Watch Dogs 2 mission playthrough from Ubisoft's E3 presser gives us a decent introduction to the new protagonist, Marcus Holloway, and I'm already liking him so much more than Aiden Pearce (not saying a whole lot, I know). The setting...   read

Ubisoft's Steep is scratching my SSX itch

That came out of nowhere! Ubisoft just announced Steep, a new open-world snowboarding/skiing/paragliding/base jumping/skydiving that's giving me serious SSX reboot vibes. Sure, that game lost some of the charm of the older games, ...   read

Ubisoft's Eagle Flight is probably way better than it looks

Ubisoft's For Honor will join Persona 5 on Valentine's Day 2017

Like most Ubisoft games, For Honor fell off my radar for a while. It looks cool in theory, but most of what we've seen deals with cinematics and unsubstantiated claims. Dealing with medieval knights, vikings, and samurai battling it out in ...   read
