I’m not a person who gets shocked easily by the things that I see on TV or in movies. I have also seen every episode of South Park and have watched the movie, but even then, Matt Stone and Trey Parker have failed to shock me. All of this has changed with South Park: The Stick of Truth. It was crude, extremely sexual (visually), repulsive and boundary pushing, but I loved every single minute of it.
Tetris, a game that defined not only a generation but puzzle games forever. We have seen many Tetris spin-off’s, such as the numerous editions put out for mobile devices by EA, as well as some rip-off’s. Well some may argue whether or not they were good games, there is no denying Tetris has made a huge impact on the industry. For the world renown game’s 30th birthday developer Ubisoft has elected to make a next-gen remake. In Ubisoft’s official press release they said Continue reading
Valentine’s Day is a day where we take that special someone out on a extravagant dinner and shower them with gifts, to show them how much we love them, and how much they mean to us.
Even though Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft’s most popular game franchise, has already been annualized, the company has reportedly gone a step further and is now planning on releasing two new Assassin’s Creed games in the same year. One for current gen platforms and one for next-gen platforms.
Ubisoft has revealed today that the PC version of their hotly anticipated game, The Division, won’t just be a port, but will be far more optimised for the platform.
Ubisoft has confirmed the worst for Xbox 360 and future Xbox One owners, stating that the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s PlayStation-exclusive DLC won’t be available on any other platforms. The statement is most likely a response to the rumors that flew across the web this past week saying that the DLC would come to other platforms six months after launch.
But the studio has now confirmed to Eurogamer that this is not the case. If you want to play Aveline’s hour long adventure, you’ll need to play it on a PS3 or PS4.
The game itself is already out on current gen consoles, and will be available on PS4 and Xbox One at launch.
Ubisoft has revealed that their upcoming game Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will have over 80 hours of content, the story accounting for 20 of those hours. These numbers come from the game’s lead designer Jean-Sebastien Decant, who told OPM that those players looking to fully dive in to the game would have a size-able amount of content to play with.
“We have so much content it’s quite crazy to say it,” Decant said. “The main story is at least 20 hours. In the open world you have stuff to do for at least 50 or 60 hours.
“We really tried to increase the feeling of adventure. At the same time it has to be easy to use so we added a number of teleports, in fact every [objective] you do becomes a teleport. So as you soon as you win somewhere, you can send people there.”
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC on October 29. The game will also be a launch day title for the Xbox One and PS4.
In an unfortunate turn of events, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs and The Crew have both been delayed until Q1 of 2014. Watch Dogs is a highly anticipated game that many people were looking forward to play this November. The Crew was set to launch early next year. The release dates for these two games are unknown at this time, but the whole situation is unfortunate.
You can check out what a member of the Ubisoft Development Team had to say about this matter on their website. In the post, he had a message from the Watch Dogs Development Team.
“We know a lot of you are probably wondering ‘why now?’ We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.”
We’ll update you as more information is revealed, but for now just know that we’ll be able to play Watch Dogs and The Crew sometime next year.
Ubisoft has released a video containing the unboxing of the DedSec edition of their highly anticipated Watch Dogs. In this collector’s edition, gamers will receive the following: an Aidan Pierce figure, an “Art of Watch Dogs” book, four augmented reality cards, a map of Chicago, a set of badges and the game’s soundtrack.
There are also a few in-game perks as well. Watch Dogs will be released on November 19th in North America and on November 22nd in Europe. Check out the trailer below.
Shortly after the Ubisoft announced two new Assassin’s Creed titles, they unleashed a flurry of screenshots for both. Above is a compilation of screenshots and concept art for the mobile-and-tablet-based title, Assassin’s Creed Pirates.
The visuals look stunning for a mobile game, and it appears that Ubisoft Sofia is going all out on development and integration of their new mobile engine. It definitely pays off in the screenshots, but we’ll have to wait for the release to see how well it transitions to real-time gameplay.
Pirates will release for handheld devices later this year.
