Knife to See You! Here's a First Look at the Assassin's Creed Movie

Filming starts next week

Assassin's Creed is an absolutely colossal brand these days, so of course there's a movie in the works. Prometheus thesp Michael Fassbender was signed up what feels like an eternity ago to front the flick, and here's a first glimpse of him kitted out with hoods and hidden knives. The film will begin shooting next week, but...

Review: Toy Soldiers: War Chest (PS4)

Toy Soldiers: War Chest (PS4)

I love the smell of polyurethane in the morning

Occasionally there comes a game that sounds like the next big hit on paper but crumples into a steaming heap when in practice. Enter Toy Soldiers: War Chest, a game that pits the likes of the Care Bears against the armies of Castle Grey Skull in this tower defense escapade that takes a fundamentally...

Rainbow Six: Siege Dodges a Bullet with PS4 Delay

Will now deploy in December

When we controversially claimed over the weekend that no one gives a hoot about Rainbow Six: Siege, we weren't being mean about Ubisoft's latest shooter. We have a lot of analytics here at Push Square, and while we don't claim to have a view of the PlayStation 4 market as a whole, we can get a feel for which games are...

Review: Zombi (PS4)

Zombi (PS4)

There's no U in Zombi

ZombiU was an innovative and genuinely scary survival horror title which hit the Wii U at launch – one that made excellent use of Nintendo's second screen GamePad to enhance the terror to all new levels. Now, three years later, the title has been ported to the PlayStation 4, complete with a control overhaul to shift...

Kendra Wilkinson Says Everything You Need to Know About Rainbow Six: Siege

Urgh

Ubisoft's getting desperate. Seemingly aware of the fact that absolutely no one on Planet Earth gives a hoot about the upcoming Rainbow Six: Siege, it's rolled out some celebrities to big up the game – like reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson and her footballer husband Hank Baskett. Unsurprisingly, they both think that the release is the...

Review: Boggle (PS4)

Boggle (PS4)

Mind boggling

Ubisoft's board game train ain't showing any signs of slowing, with Boggle the latest passenger on the quality time carriage. A popular pastime originally designed by Allan Turoff in the early 70s, the tabletop title works a little like a word search whereby you can snake between different letters, as long as you can find a way to...

You Can Choose Your Murder Method in Assassin's Creed Syndicate

What will it be?

The so-called Black Box missions were one of the few redeeming features of Assassin's Creed Unity.

Ubisoft's Still Trying to Flog The Crew

Publisher overhauling PS4 racer's visuals

We weren't all that enamoured with The Crew when it released on the PlayStation 4 last year, but kudos to Ubisoft, it's not pumping the brakes on the brand just yet. In fact, upcoming expansion Wild Ride is more than just your average DLC pack – it's going to launch alongside a brand new graphics engine...

Assassin's Creed Syndicate Enjoys an English Frye Up

London's calling

There are no eggs and bacon in this Assassin's Creed Syndicate trailer – just protagonists Jacob and Evie Frye. A mood piece released right at the start of Gamescom 2015, this is Ubisoft's trailer making team at its best; it doesn't tell us a whole lot new about the game, but it sure managed to get us hyped for this holiday's trip...

Grow Home Rooting Down on PS4

PC platformer sprouting out

Grow Home, the quirky plant-based platformer from Driver developer Ubisoft Reflections, looks like it will be taking seed on the PlayStation 4 soon.

Gaze past the sometimes awkward commentary and there's actually some decent gameplay to analyse here. London itself seems...

Assassin's Creed Syndicate Short Proves There's No Place Like London

Good stuff, guv'nor

Assassin's Creed Syndicate was out in force at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, fighting against austerity for the poor people back in the UK. Actually, that's a lie – Ubisoft was merely showing off the latest entry in its stealth series in order to secure a few more pre-orders. Rather than demo some new gameplay footage,...

PS4 Doubles the Competition When it Comes to Ubisoft Game Sales

A French favourite

Without an early 2015 blockbuster release, Ubisoft's revenue has taken a hit this year. According to the publisher's latest financial report ending the 30th June, sales have declined by 73 per cent year-on-year. Despite the drop, though, the PlayStation 4 has proven to be the popular choice when it comes to the French company's...

The port was touted earlier in the year, and the rumour was reinforced due to an Australian ratings board. However, a classification on a Taiwanese website has all but...

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage.

Rumour: Beyond Good & Evil 2 Is Dead and Buried

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Is Dead and Buried

Yves forbade Jade

Sony's big E3 2015 press conference may have felt a little like a séance for formerly dead projects, but there's one title that it failed to resurrect: Beyond Good & Evil 2. The astute among you may have noticed that the release was absent from Ubisoft's media briefing, and that's because it's apparently dead as a dodo –...
