Far Cry 4 Still Looks Stunning on PS4

Wish you were here

The majority of Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference this week hinged on new and original ideas, but there were a few known quantities throughout the media briefing, too. One of those was Far Cry 4, which popped up as part of a quick cameo – honestly, most likely due to contractual obligations between Ubisoft and the...

Paris Looks Rather Resplendent in This 11 Minute Assassin's Creed Unity Gameplay Walkthrough

All Arno-thing

Yesterday we got our first proper look at last-gen only title Assassin's Creed Rogue courtesy of an eight minute gameplay trailer, but after seeing this 11 minute walkthrough for Assassin's Creed Unity, we're starting to really appreciate why publisher Ubisoft is keeping this one a current-gen exclusive. Simply put, the city of

Glitch in the animus

With Assassin's Creed Unity stalking Paris later this year only on next-gen consoles, it's up to Assassin's Creed Rogue to fill in on the PlayStation 3. Other than some sparse gameplay details, we haven't had a good look at the last-gen stab-'em-up yet, but all that's changed thanks to an eight minute walkthrough from publisher...

You'll Need to Find Your Sea Legs for the Darkest Assassin's Creed to Date

Ubisoft announces this year's PS3 outing

It’s a good thing that the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue doesn’t have a ship as leaky as Ubisoft, otherwise he’d be living it up in ol’ Davy Jones’ Locker right now. After months of speculation – and a morning of YouTube copyright claims – the French publisher has finally confirmed...

Assassin's Creed: Rogue Will Clamber Onto the PS3 in November

Sneaky leak

Remember when games managed to last countless months – sometimes even years – without several high-profile leaks? No, neither do we. The latest in this growing trend of industry slipups is a trailer for Assassin's Creed: Rogue, the purported series entry planned to hit PlayStation 3 later this year.

This Is What the Folks Behind Far Cry 4 Call Work

Green eyed monster

Making games is not easy. In addition to the excruciatingly long hours, technical challenges, and budget-based pressures, you also have to deal with idiotic online forum posters tossing obscenities at your title when given the opportunity. For the folks behind Far Cry 4, however, things aren’t all bad, as key members of the team...

Will Watch Dogs' Newest DLC See You Hacking the Streets of New Jersey?

One to watch

If you feel like your square button hasn't been seeing enough love since you finished open world hack-'em-up Watch Dogs, never fear, as recent tweets from the title's official Twitter account suggest that it may be getting some new DLC. Intriguingly, the messages imply that the downloable extras may be set in an entirely separate city...

Review: Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars (PlayStation Network)

Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars (PlayStation Network)

Pay £7.99 for tagline

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars is some kind of trading card video game, but that’s short-sighted. No, it’s an investment opportunity of a lifetime – a chance to hand out huge amounts of money in return for digital versions of cards that your other half probably...

Spark a Revolution on PS4 with Assassin's Creed Unity's New Gameplay Trailer

A different kind of red, white, and blue

Judging from Assassin's Creed Unity's newest trailer, the French really aren't happy about how their national team bowed out of the World Cup after a disappointing duel with eventual winners Germany. We joke, of course, but the clip that we've embedded is indeed full of rioting Frenchmen, much to the...

UK Sales Charts: Watch Dogs Reconnects with the Top Spot

Hanging on the telephone

After a few weeks with shoddy signal, Ubisoft’s sandbox smash Watch Dogs has re-established a connection with the summit of the UK sales charts. The title had been obstructed by Sniper Elite III, which has slipped into second position this week. FIFA 14 mirrored the Netherlands in third, while Wolfenstein: The New Order...

Review: Child of Light (PlayStation Vita)

Child of Light (PlayStation Vita)

Summer child

It took longer and was more brutal than a rap battle between J.R.R. Tolkien and George R.R. Martin, but Child of Light has finally made it to the PlayStation Vita. Those of you who have been desperately waiting to see what all the fuss was about can, after almost three months, join Aurora on her rather poetic quest to save the world...

Elephunk

Those of you in the press will be well aware of Ubisoft’s outstanding ability to produce press releases on a frighteningly frequent basis. There’s not a day goes by where we don’t get an email from the company at 17:00PM sharp, including some kind of video, image, or minor announcement. Yesterday was no different, as the firm opted to...

You'll Play as This Trendy Man in PS4 Shooter Far Cry 4

Just your average psychopath

Protagonists often play a big part in new game announcements, but it’s perhaps telling that Ubisoft has opted to wait until after Far Cry 4’s big coming out party to introduce you to Ajay Ghale – the character that you’ll be playing as in the forthcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 first-person shooter...
