This Free Far Cry 4 Theme for the PlayStation 4 Is Grrreat

Eye of the tiger

Ever since adding themes as part of PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00, Sony’s furnished the PlayStation Store with a handful of animated backgrounds. Unfortunately, this latest freebie isn’t as exciting as the recent 20th Anniversary giveaway, but is pretty neat if you’re a fan of Ubisoft’s big holiday blockbuster,

Will Ubisoft Finally Fix Assassin's Creed Unity's PS4 Framerate Next Week?

Patch four impending

While it may not seem like it sometimes, we genuinely don’t enjoy reporting on broken games. It’s part of the reason why we’re so pleased to see DriveClub overcome its troubles and blossom into a really decent racing game – and also why we’ve got our fingers crossed tightly that Assassin’s Creed Unity will finally be...

The Crew (PlayStation 4)

Thank you for driving dangerously

If you’ve ever fancied taking a coast-to-coast road trip across America, then you were probably excited by the announcement that Ubisoft's latest driving game The Crew was offering the chance to do just that. Even with its abbreviated version of the USA, the scale of its game world, coupled with the chance to tear...

Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass Owners to Receive Free Game

Everyone to get apologetic DLC

Ubisoft has more or less admitted that Assassin’s Creed Unity launched in an unacceptable state, and is attempting to make up for that with free downloadable content. Everyone that's purchased the game will be able to grab the title’s Dead Kings add-on at no extra charge, while Season Pass owners will be offered...

Assassin's Creed Unity Patch Will Improve Framerate on PS4

Band aid

Well done for beta testing the game everyone; Assassin’s Creed Unity may resemble a finished product later this week. Ubisoft has announced that it will be launching a brand new PlayStation 4 patch for its plagued Parisian escapade tomorrow, which will improve the title’s frame rate – and fix a frightening number of bugs that somehow...

Far Cry 4 (PlayStation 4)

Take a walk on the wild side

Far Cry 3 managed to blend a near perfect mix of open world and first-person shooter, taking players to the darker side of a Pacific paradise, where many of the inhabitants were the definition of insane. For its sequel, there’s a definite feeling that Ubisoft took the view 'if it’s not broken, don’t fix it', so Far...

Assassin's Creed Rogue (PlayStation 3)

A touch of frost

You’d be forgiven for branding Assassin’s Creed Rogue an afterthought, as its next-gen brother, Assassin’s Creed Unity, overshadowed its release. Although appearing as a cash-in for those still waiting to upgrade their PlayStation 3s, though, this is actually a solid instalment in Ubisoft’s historical franchise, bringing...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Unity Sails Past Black Flag's Launch Sales

Advanced Warfare still on top

There’s a great game in Assassin’s Creed Unity, but it’s obfuscated by bad bugs and glitches. To be fair, Ubisoft is working hard to fix things, and that’s already resulted in one major PlayStation 4 patch. However, upper-management won’t be too worried about the backlash to the game, as it’s outsold the...

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Patch Squashes Several Big Bugs

No improvements to performance, though

It occurred to us earlier this evening that Ubisoft could, in theory, blame Assassin’s Creed Unity’s various bugs and glitches on a fault in the Animus – providing it with the perfect plot device to explain away the title’s terrible launch. Fortunately, the French firm isn’t doing that, and is instead...

Assassin's Creed Unity (PlayStation 4)

Heads will roll

French publisher Ubisoft is on its home turf with Assassin's Creed Unity. With a sprawling recreation of 18th Century Paris to explore, the game does away with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's naval angle, and returns to a setting that evokes memories of Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. With the French revolu

Animus issues

Assassin’s Creed Unity is busted. You can play the game, for sure – but it’s not a particularly pleasant experience a lot of the time. If our ghastly glitches roundup didn’t already get that point across, then know that during a co-op session with associate editor Robert Ramsey last night, this author’s game slipped into a...
