  • Next Assassins' Creed May Be Set in Victorian Age London

    assassins creed victoryUbisoft made a big mistake with AC: Unity - the game was tacky, not prepared properly, and fell apart on many people's consoles. Of course, when it came to story and actual gameplay content, Unity was actually pretty impressive, and this is why I'm quite excited to hear about rumors for Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed game.

    There are two reasons why I am excited, the next Assassin's Creed game couldn't possibly be launched in a state anywhere near as bad as Unity was, unless Ubisoft are purposely trying to murder the franchise.

    The second reason is because, according to some rumors, the new Assassin's Creed game will be set in Victorian age London. We've seen plenty of revolutions in the Assassin's Creed universe now, but taking things back to the Victorian age will open up some interesting possibilities.

    If the next AC game is set in Victorian age London, we can expect dark London streets and plenty of opportunity for great assassinations thanks to the great buildings found within London at the time.

    According to other rumors, the next game in the Assassin's Creed franchise will be named Victory, which would fit in perfectly with the Victorian theme.

    Would you like to see the next AC game in Victorian London, or would you prefer the game to be set elsewhere? Personally, we think there is a lot of potential for this kind of setting, but Ubisoft seem to be pretty good at capturing any historical setting or time zone.

  • The Crew will Release with No Game-Breaking Bugs, Before Reviews

    the crew launch bugsAfter the controversy behind Assassins' Creed Unity, it's no surprise that many gamers are starting to worry about any games released by Ubisoft at this point, and it seems to have scared many people away from buying into the Crew, a new upcoming new gen racing game.

    Whilst the Crew has been in development for a long time and has even been pushed back so that Ubisoft can polish the quality of it, many people are still worried about any bugs that may be preset at launch.

    Ubisoft on the other hand seem pretty confident that there is nothing to worry about, and they have even mentioned that the Crew will be launched without any game-breaking bugs. This seems to be majorly down to the open beta stages of the Crew, something that Assassin's Creed Unity did not have.

    "For The Crew, we've reaped the benefits of a long term beta program, designed specifically to push our infrastructure as far as possible in real world situations, with thousands of players from all over the world playing the game at the same time."

    Interestingly, Ubisoft will not be giving any early copies of the Crew out to reviewers, so we will have no inside feedback about the game until after it has launched. This will mean that players will not have any critic reviews to go on when making a purchasing decision, so those that are worried about the quality of the game may want to wait a couple of days before diving in.

  • Season Pass for Assassins Creed Unity Cancelled

    assassins creed unity season passAfter all of the issues that have plagued Assassin's Creed Unity since it's launch, it seems as if Ubisoft have lifted up the white flag. In fact, the developers have now decided that not only are they going to give away free DLC to say sorry to those that purchased the game, but they are now planning to get rid of the season pass completely.

    It has already been announced that the Dead Kings DLC for AC: Unity will be made free for everybody, but they've now confirmed that they will be ditching the season pass, which means it will no longer be for sale, and any future DLC will most likely be put on sale separately.

    For those that have already purchased the season pass, Ubisoft have you covered - you will be able to pick out a game from their library and download it for absolutely free. There are only a few select games to choose from, but I think Ubisoft simply limited the choice to make it less confusing for their customers.

    The games that will be free to season pass holders will be Far Cry 4, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Just Dance 2015 and Rayman Legends.

    Despite the season pass being removed from the game, Assassins' Creed Unity season pass holders will still get free access to all future content, so the free game is an added bonus. It's odd that Ubisoft have taken this route, but i'm sure this is the best way to keep as many players happy as possible.

  • Assassin's Creed Unity Gets Live Gameplay on Twitch

    AC Unity live streamAssassin's Creed is now very close to launching, and Ubisoft have been revealing all there is about the game leading up to it's launch. Over the weekend, Ubisoft hosted a stream to showcase a whole ton of Assassin's Creed Unity gameplay, and there was a lot to take in from this event.

    The livestream event that was hosted on Twitch was hosted for around 9 hours, and within this stream, a good chunk of that time was spent on streaming live gameplay from Assassin's' Creed Unity.

    The live stream showed off a bunch of interesting elements of the game, including the brand new character customization options and a look into some of the story missions available in Assassin's Creed Unity.

    The live stream also showed off the versatility available within all of the side missions within Unity, and focused on the brand new environment that has been set in France. Quite frankly, Ubisoft have done an amazing job with AC: Unity, and it looks absolutely stunning, both in terms of graphics and gameplay.

    Perhaps the most interesting part of the livestream is the segment where Ubisoft focused on the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed Unity. Multiplayer has always been a tacked on add-on to the main story, but in Unity, it does look very enjoyable and will be an integral part of the game.

    Assassins' Creed Unity will be released on November 11th for the PS4, the Xbox One and the PC in North America, November 13th for the same consoles in the UK, and December 4th for Japan.

  • The Division Gameplay Shown

    the division gameplayAt EGX this year, Ubisoft held a developer session of upcoming Tom Clancy’s The Division, showing off in-game footage, screenshots and details of the game's progress.

    If you have been interested in the Division at any point, then I'd definitely suggest checking it out. Ubisoft have been working alongside developer Massive to create Tom Clancy's The Division, and it has long been one of my most anticipated games for the new generation of consoles.

    After the huge hype following Watch_Dogs, it's easy to be way of whether The Division will live up to what it's trying to portray, but the 20 minute developer session really does the game justice, and I hope that the game will play like that in the hands of the average gamer.

    For those unaware, Tom Clancy's The Division is aimed to be a new third person MMO game with cover based shooter elements. The game will focus on a world that portrays the vulnerability of the society within the United States, and follows events after a disease spreads through the country, causing collapse to the US, within just five days.

    The concept behind Tom Clancy's The Division is really impressive, and I personally cannot wait to get my hands on it. Hopefully we will see more footage of the game as we near closer to the release date of Tom Clancy’s The Division.

    The Division will be released at some point next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

  • New The Division Trailer Shows Off Quick Gameplay Shots

    the division trailerA brand new trailer for The Division has just been released by Ubisoft, and it reveals a few things about the Xbox One version of the game, as well as showing a short glimpse at real gameplay footage.

    Firstly, the new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division reveals that Ubisoft are planning to share details on the Xbox One version of the game for the first time at this year's Gamescom. On top of this, the trailer shows off a few off-screen glimpses of gameplay from the E3 demo for The Division.

    I'm very interested to learn more about Tom Clancy's: The Division, and hopefully Ubisoft will be willing to share a few details about the game at this year's Gamescom, which is under way this month.

    Whether Ubisoft will open up a real playable demo to visitors of Gamescom, or whether they'll keep gameplay to themselves is currently unknown, but I expect we'll be seeing some kind of Xbox One based gameplay footage very shortly at Gamescom.

    Tom Clancy's The Division is looking to be one of the most unique titles announced for the new gen, and many gamers are incredibly excited to see exactly what the game will consist of.

    So far, we know that The Division will be a "massive" multiplayer online third person shooter title that is based within a fragile, complex futuristic society that breaks down after a disease spreads through the US.

  • PS4 Owners Will Be Able to Play Far Cry 4 With Their Friends Without Owning a Copy Themselves

    far cry ps4 inviteUbisoft has recently revealed a brand new feature for Far Cry 4 that will allow your friends to get in on the action, even if they don't own the game themselves. The new feature is a PS4 exclusive that we'll probably be seeing a lot more of in the future. If you own Far Cry 4 when it releases, you will be able to send an invite to your friends, encouraging them to come and play the game with you.

    Players will be able to accept their friend's Far Cry 4 invites, and they'll be able to join in on the action regardless of whether they actually own the game or not. For this to happen, players will have to download a Far Cry 4 client onto their PlayStation that allows them to play when invited by a friend.

    This new feature will restrict those that don't own the game to co-op play with friends that have invited them personally, but I still think it's a great initiative by Sony, and we'll probably see many more games in the future supporting this same approach.

    Far Cry 4 is set for release this year on November 18th in North America and November 20th in Europe for Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. Ubisoft have already revealed details for a $30 season pass for the game, but so far details of what it will include are unknown. The season pass is currently not available.

  • Watch_Dogs Is Fastest Selling Game in Ubisoft History

    Watch_Dogs SalesDespite constant complaints about frame rate, resolution and game graphics in Watch_Dogs by the gaming community, Ubisoft's recently released open world title has been incredibly well received by the public.

    In fact, Watch_Dogs has been so well received that it has been titled the fastest selling title in all of Ubisoft's history. No other game published or developed by Ubisoft has managed to sell as many copies as Watch_Dogs has within a 24 hour period, which really is quite impressive, considering Ubisoft have been the driving force behind many great franchises, including Assassins’ Creed and Far Cry.

    So, I'm sure you're wondering exactly how well Watch_Dogs has sold, and how that compares to other similar titles like Grand Theft Auto V. Ubisoft recently announced that Watch_Dogs has sold more copies in 24 hours than any of their other titles, but details on just how many copies were sold has not yet been revealed.

    Grand Theft Auto V managed to sell a staggering 12 million units in just one day, and one of Ubisoft's most sold titles, Assassins' Creed 3 sold just 7 million in one week. So, whilst Watch_Dogs has done Ubisoft proud, it's unlikely it has reached the success of the GTA franchise by a long shot.

    Despite GTA still being a whole lot more popular, the idea behind Watch_Dogs was 5 years in the making, and after such a long development cycle, we've been handed a game that has a solid gameplay concept that can deliver hours of open world fun.

  • Watch Dogs Receives Praise, Despite Concerns of Poor Graphics

    watch dogs releaseEver since Ubisoft revealed Watch Dogs for Xbox and PlayStation, we have constantly seen criticism over the gameplay reveals and leaks for the open world game. No complaints were made about the actual core gameplay, but instead gamers were moaning and groaning about graphical quality, frame rate and resolution.

    Personally, I don't really care at all about this. From what we've seen, Watch Dogs doesn't look absolutely terrible, and despite claims about the Xbox 360 version looking like a PS2 game, the graphical quality across all platforms really isn't that terrible.

    Besides from the graphics, critics and reviews seem to be pretty excited about Watch Dogs. The concept behind the title is a pretty interesting one to say the least, and gameplay is both enjoyable and engaging.

    The whole idea behind being able to hack into the world around us is quite a neat idea, and Ubisoft have presented it well to us. Overall, it feels like an open world game similar to the likes of Grand Theft Auto, Saints Row and Just Cause, but the new hacking mechanics and interesting backstory make it unique, and a great milestone for next gen developers to build from.

    On next gen versions, Watch_Dogs is looking pretty presentable, and there really isn't anything worth complaining about when it comes to the graphic quality on either the Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

    Watch Dogs was released on the 27th May for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

  • Ubisoft Warns of Early 'False' Watch_Dogs Reviews

    watch_dogs early reviews

    Ubisoft doesn't want you to learn anything about Watch_Dogs until it's finally released, but that hasn't stopped some early birds from playing through the game and putting up a review online anyway. It seems that some review websites have managed to get their hands on a copy of Watch_Dogs early, and they have played through the game and given it a verdict.

    One such website is WCCFtech, and despite being quite a well known online news portal, Ubisoft have warned that any reviews online at this point are 'false' and should be avoided. Whilst they didn't directly mention WCCFtech, it's pretty clear who Ubisoft are talking about here.

    WCCFtech gave a fairly positive review towards Ubisoft's new game, and they gave Watch_Dogs a score of 7.5, which to be frank isn't entirely terrible, however despite this, Ubisoft seem to be uncomfortable with the review.

    If you're wanting to get an early idea about what Watch_Dogs is like, feel free to read through the reviews online - they certainly aren't false, and they'll give you a good idea of what to expect from Watch_Dogs when it is released on May 27th.

    Of course, we won't get a full rounded up verdict on the game until the actual release date, at which point we'll be able to read reviews from multiple different sources that should offer different perspectives on Watch_Dogs.
