Watch Dogs 2
  Watch Video 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 o...   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

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...   read

 
E3 2016
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 controll...   read

 
Ghost Recon Wildlands
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 pla...   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

 
 
Ubisoft E3
  Watch Video 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 con...   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

 
 


Steep
  Watch Video 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 th...   read

Assassin's Creed is only at E3 2016 in movie form

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

While watching Ubisoft and Oculus VR demonstrate Eagle Flight on-stage at E3, I had to keep reminding myself that these games are usually way better than they look when someone else is playing. The open-world flight game has players s...   read

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

Ubisoft opens E3 with a cringey Just Dance 2017 routine with clowns

My God. They've topped girl wood. With one of the weirdest openings ever, Ubisoft ushered in Just Dance 2017 to Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now." Aisha Tyler lightened the mood a bit by joking about crabs and lions, but it wasn't enough. Just Da...   read
