  • The Division Beta Sign-up Page Appears Online

    the division beta

    It has been two years since The Division was announced by Ubisoft. At that time, the game was revealed at E3 and it most certainly got the attention of many gamers across the world. As months have gone by, years have passed, Tom Clancy's The Division has remained in development, and it's only till recently that we've started to hear more about it.

    At E3 this year, The Division was finally given a release date of March 2016, and soon after it was revealed that a beta would be coming for the game in December this year. Now, it has been revealed that players that owned an Xbox One would be able to get access to the beta slightly earlier than console or PC players.

    In fact, whilst a start date for the Xbox One beta has not yet been revealed, Ubisoft has now opened up a beta sign-up page for players to access. Any Xbox One, PS4 or PC owner that has pre-ordered The Division can head over to that page and claim a free beta code.

    Players can also sign up for a beta code regardless of whether they've pre-ordered The Division or not, but only those that have pre-ordered it will be guaranteed a beta code.

    So far Ubisoft has not explained what the beta will consist of but there is no doubt that it will be a slightly limited version of the full game. Players will probably get a glimpse as some of the game mechanics, but a lot of the game will be locked out of the beta.

  • ZombiU Will be Coming to Xbox One and PS4

    ZombiU

    Thanks to a new listing on an Australian Ratings Board, we've managed to find out that the exclusive Wii U title, ZombiU, might just be coming to the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. As you'd expect, the 'U' in the ZombiU has been dropped, and the cross platform version will just be called Zombi.

    The ZombiU game did look very promising, and the poor Wii U sales have lead the game to get little traction, despite it being quite a decent game, so it makes sense that the developers are trying to bring the game to other platforms. It would make sense that porting ZombiU to other platforms would be a little more difficult than porting a non-Wii U title, simply because of the various game controls and Wii U mechanics ZombiU takes advantage of.

    It may be a while before we hear anything official about a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Zombi, but it's very likely it will be coming. The same Australian Ratings Board has been very on point with these kinds of listings in the past, and many games have been discovered early thanks to its listings.

    The fact that the game has now reached a ratings board suggests that development for the ported version has already somewhat began, but there is unfortunately no way of knowing just how far the ZombiU developers have gotten with the port until an official announcement is made. So far Ubisoft has not commented on the ported version of ZombiU but we'll let you know as soon as we hear something.

  • Far Cry 4 Complete Edition Planned

    far cry 4 complete editionThe whole DLC debacle definitely leaves a lot of room for debate, but if you're patient with buying games you can often get great deals on DLC. In fact, most publishers are now releasing "complete editions" roughly a year after the game release - these versions often cost the same price as the original game but they're also packed with all of the game's DLC.

    Ubisoft has been following this practice for a while, and their next compilation game set for release is Far Cry 4: Complete Edition.

    As expected, Far Cry 4 Complete Edition will come with the full game and all five of the DLC expansions that were released as part of the game's season pass. The new complete edition will also have all of the extra missions, weapons and areas that may have been awarded to players in the past.

    Far Cry 4 Complete Edition is set for release on June 19. So far we don't know whether we'll see a physical release or not. It's entirely possible that the Complete Edition may only be available digitally.

    Either way, Ubisoft has shared some details about the Far Cry 4 complete pack that nobody was expecting. Ubisoft has stated that they "have no plans to release it on Xbox One."

    Considering that the main Far Cry 4 game was released on Xbox One, it seems odd that Ubisoft will now only be releasing the bundle pack to PlayStation 4 and PC. We've seen a lot of exclusivity deals for the PlayStation 4 recently, but Ubisoft are rarely ever the company to make such arrangements.

  • New Assassin's Creed Detailed

    new assassin’s creedUnsurprisingly, Ubisoft is gearing up to announce a brand new Assassin's Creed title. Last week, invitations for a world premiere revealing for the next Assassin's Creed title were sent out to the press. The new Assassin's Creed game will be revealed on Tuesday.

    Previous rumors suggested that the new Assassin's Creed game was going to be called Victory. This seemed like a fitting name at the time - the next game in the franchise is expected to be set in Victorian London. However, new rumors are suggesting that the new Assassin's Creed title will instead be called Syndicate.

    We're not sure why Ubisoft would choose this name over Victory but we're bound to find out more at the world premiere revealing. If you think back to the last Assassin's Creed game, Unity, the name Syndicate seems more fitting, even though it may not have any real correlation with the actual game content or story.

    Unity was released last year and it was met with a lot of distaste from critics and the gaming community as a whole. It wasn't exactly a bad game - it was just badly made. It had too many bugs, glitches and game problems that made it quite unplayable for a long time.

    Hopefully Ubisoft has learned from their mistakes. We should hopefully learn more about Assassin's Creed Syndicate and its release date later this week. We'll make sure to keep you updated as new information comes in.

  • 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.
