Video game publisher Ubisoft has filed a lawsuit in a California courtroom against an alleged distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack website. The lawsuit lists multiple people from around the globe as defendants. Ubisoft announced last year that it had a plan to stop players that utilized DDoS attacks during games. These attacks create lag in multiplayer matches and can cause server crashes. The game publisher claimed that it had seen a 93 percent drop in the frequency of attacks after sharing its plan to combat them. Ubisoft is now aiming to kill the source of the attacks by filing a lawsuit against the website called SNG.one. The website allegedly sells subscriptions for up to $299.85... Read more...
Christmas is almost here, and game publishers and developers have been gifting gamers with some free loot in their favorite games. The latest game to give gamers free loot is Rainbow Six Siege. Players of this game will get one free operator from Year 1, 2, 3, or 4 of the seasonal updates. The coolest part of it is that the operator will be one you don't already own from those seasons. The latest operators, the Indian and Kenyan ones, are included in the free offer. The operator is random, so players can't choose who they get. Taking advantage of the free operator requires players to go to the Alpha Packs section of the game. Players on all platforms will find a special Holiday 2019 Pack waiting... Read more...
Ubisoft has not had the year it hoped for, and gamers are about to suffer dearly for it. Today Ubisoft issued updates for its financial targets and game release schedule for fiscal 2019-2020.

Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs Legion will all be delayed until the 2020 to 2021 timeframe. Ubisoft says that it wants to "ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players."

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Wildlands has been around for quite some time, having launched over two years ago (March 7th, 2017 to be exact). With that being said, the game’s developers are aiming to give the game a big going away party before its successor – Ghost Recon Breakpoint – arrives on the scene. An all-new multiplayer mode is arriving, and it’s called Mercenaries. It’s a frantic PvPvE free-for-all that kinda takes on the guise of today’s popular battle royale shooters. The gameplay mechanics have us screaming out, “Run, get to the choppa!” to quote Arnold Schwarzenegger from the classic 1987 action flick Predator. You will have to fend... Read more...
E3 2019 is expected to have several exciting announcements for gamers. Ubisoft is one of the many game publishers that will be at E3, and one of its big announcements appears to have already leaked. Amazon UK posted a product page for an unannounced game called Watch Dogs Legion, which would be the third game in the popular series.  The game is set in London and in a post-Brexit world. The alleged description of the game read, "Watch Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It's a post-Brexit world in which society, politics, and technology have changed and altered London's fortunes." This leak isn't the first time that London has been tipped as the setting...

A new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 depicts Washington D.C. in a state of ruin as the United States descends into anarchy. It's a post-apocalyptic setting seemingly caused by some sort of virus outbreak that "crippled our country." A civil war has erupted in its wake, and it is up to agents of The Division to restore order. The trailer doesn't reveal a ton of details about the game, only that everything has gone to manure. America is "slipping into civil war" and headed to "total collapse." So yeah, the stakes are obviously high in this one. "Only you and your squad can bring the nation back from the brink," the trailer's description reads. It's sort of like watching a Walking Dead... Read more...
Sometimes making it into a beta test for a new service seems as unlikely as hitting the lottery. Some folks may have thought when Google announced Project Stream earlier this month and invited people to sign up for a chance at the beta test for the service, the odds of getting in on a Google beta for a completely new service were slim. As it turns out, it appears that Google invited everyone who signed up for the beta. If you signed up, check your email because you probably have an invite sitting there. Inside the welcome email is a setup code unique to each user. To play you go to the Project Stream website, where you enter your setup code, agree that you are 17-years old or older, and agree...

Ubisoft is ramping up its efforts to curb hate speech, including racist and generally toxic comments, in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The publisher has flipped the switch on a system that automatically doles out instant bans to Rainbow Six Siege players who violate the company's code of conduct in such a manner, and some of the banned players have taken to Twitter to complain about it. The policies that prohibit racial slurs and other types of defamatory comments are not new—Ubisoft stated in April that it was tracking the frequency of racial and homophobic slurs and would be applying bans with increasing severity. At the time, Ubisoft said the bans would last 2 days, 7 days, 15 days,... Read more...
The next installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise will be set in ancient Greece, as has been rumored for several months now. Ubisoft confirmed as much with a very short teaser video that it posted to social media. The incredibly short clip plays just long enough to see a character clad in ancient digs kicking another one off a cliff, a scene that is very much reminiscent of the infamous one in the move 300. Beyond that, the only other thing the teaser reveals is that Ubisoft is planning a formal announcement at the upcoming E3 2018 expo that is scheduled to take place from June 12-14 in Los Angeles. The title frame lists the game's name, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, followed by "See you at... Read more...
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...
Ubisoft is letting gamers play For Honor free starting today and running through Sunday or Monday, depending on your platform, during which time you can also purchase the title for a deep discount. The sale actually runs longer than the free weekend, so you have some time to decide if you want to keep playing, or move onto something else. If it's the former, all of your progress will be transferred over, so there is no worry of having to start over. The free weekend for gameplay applies to all available platforms, including the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 game consoles, and Windows PCs. Here are the dates and times for each one: Xbox One: Starts on May 3, 2018 at 1am PDT, and will end on May 7,... Read more...
Some games push the envelope with cutting edge graphics, while others seek to immerse players with an engaging story line full of plot twists and turns. Yet others introduce innovative control schemes and gameplay mechanics. And then there is Far Cry 5, a game that mixes redneck stereotypes with the already weird world of politics for what some will consider a delightfully bizzarre change of pace in standard first person shooter fare. By that we mean you will have the opportunity, among other things, to collect the private parts from bulls for the local Testical Festival, an annual tradition in the fictitious town of Falls End. Shall we go on? Probably not, but we will anyway. Far Cry 5 is the... Read more...
Ubisoft is giving up some details on Far Cry 5 season pass DLC, and it sounds like it will be very different from what the core game delivers. The core game has players in Hope County, Montana combating The Project at Eden's Gate, as the cult prepares for the end of the world. We caught our first glimpse of the core game last May, however, players have some other cool expanded content to look forward to involving the living dead zombie hordes, a mission to Mars and a retrotastic return to Vietnam. The season pass content will take players through three very different destinations including Vietnam with a campaign called Hours of Darkness as the first DLC. The second season... Read more...
