E3 2018 will be here before you know it and ahead of the big show, some details are surfacing that give an idea of what Ubisoft will be bringing to the massive gaming industry party. Ubisoft's E3 event will have three AAA titles to talk about. In addition it's being reported that all three of these titles will land by the end of Ubi's current fiscal year. That means by March 31, 2019, barring any delays, which are common in the gaming industry realm, unfortunately. We know what two of those game titles will be -- The Crew 2 and The Division 2 have been officially confirmed. The third game is unannounced. However, at least some details on that unannounced game will land at E3. Ubisoft says... Read more...
Forget the rumors, it is now official—Ubisoft has posted a website where fans of the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon series can register for the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta, an open-world first person shooter set in Bolivia sometime in the near future ("a few years from now"). The game will be playable as a single-player experience or with up to three others in a four-player co-op. In Wildlands, it's the players job to coordinate the infiltration and take down of the brutal Santa Blanca cartel, a network of bad guys (and girls) that rely fear, intimidation, and violence to rule the land. The game begins with creating and customizing a character. Customizable traits will include gender, facial features,... Read more...
Since Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s launch in November 11, the game has been plagued by bugs, glitches, and an assortment of issues that has resulted in Ubisoft releasing multiple patches to rectify these problems. This resulted in Ubisoft promising free DLC and, later on, a free game to those who have purchased the game’s season pass. But the offer of a free game to Season Pass holders wasn’t the developer being nice, but so Ubisoft wouldn’t be sued. With the free game offer, users have to agree to terms and conditions presented when visiting the Assassin’s Creed: Unity game redemption website. Unfortunately, accepting the conditions waives a user’s right to bring Ubisoft... Read more...
In the age of digital downloads, a game is never truly finished until the dev team hangs it up. And, with a U.S. holiday just around the bend, the folks behind "Watch Dogs" are giving owners something else to chew on with their day off. Starting today, "Watch Dogs" owners will be able to download three new single-player missions, a host of new weapons, and even a few bonuses. Of course, Season Pass holders had access last week, but the general public can now partake for $7. Or, you could buy into a Season Pass right now for $19.99 and get this pack right away. The single-player missions include The Palace, Signature Shot, and Breakthrough. As for weapons and other necessities? There's a biometric... Read more...
Ubisoft doesn't have the greatest of reputations among PC gamers at the moment, and it's becoming increasingly clear that the company's totally indifferent to it. When Watch_Dogs released, the company was widely criticized for reducing the graphics detail in the PC build, based on the fact that the game looked better at E3 two-years-ago. It's since been discovered that the same settings used for that E3 demo can be reenabled - the game will look better, and without much of a performance hit. The fact that Ubisoft could deliberately disable a setting that any PC gamer would want enabled is striking, and it's causing rampant speculation around the Web. A common belief is that Ubisoft is so invested... Read more...
