Review: Trials Fusion (PlayStation 4)

Trials Fusion (PlayStation 4)

Motorcycle menagerie

There aren’t nearly enough motorcycle games that let you play a round of tennis with a penguin, of that we can all agree. Alas, until some clever publisher transforms the concept into a yearly franchise with a pricey season pass, Trials Fusion will have to do. Not only does it boast squirrels and black-and-white birds, but...

Child of Light Can Be Played as Lighthearted or Hardcore JRPG, Says Lead Writer

Looks can be deceiving

As Child of Light's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 release date draws ever nearer, the throwback retro-inspired JRPG continues to throw up little surprises. For example, at first glance the game's beautifully crafted hand drawn and water coloured aesthetics – powered by the UbiArt engine – lend it a look resonant of...

There's an Entire Team Working on PS4 Shooter The Division's Guns

Secret weapon

Ubisoft is known for its gigantic global development operations, but the recruitment of Red Storm to PlayStation 4 shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division is a little bit ridiculous. According to an official blog post on the French publisher’s website, the legendary Rainbow Six creator has been enlisted to design the ambitious online...

An Aiden's best friend

Watch Dogs will receive a Season Pass that will include new weapons, an additional single player campaign, and a second playable character, according to a GameStop listing spotted yesterday.

PS4 Racer The Crew Is Going to Drive Away with Your Wallet

Money sink

Ubisoft’s intriguing open world racer The Crew has always sounded ambitious, but we never expected its lofty aims to expand to its monetisation model as well. While the cross-country excursion – which will see you competing across a condensed interpretation of the United States – will release as a full-priced product for the...

Watch Dogs' Futuristic Tech Won't Extend to a Jump Button

Not got a head for heights

Watch Dogs protagonist Aiden Pearce may be packing some serious smartphone power in his pocket, but that won’t help him to, y’know, do star jumps on the spot. In a tweet that makes perfect filler for a dreadfully slow news days, the release’s animation director Colin Graham has revealed that the upcoming PlayStation...

Assassin's Creed: Unity Is the One PS4 Title That Can't Stay Undercover

Loose lips sink ships

For a stealth game, Assassin’s Creed: Unity is pretty lousy at keeping itself concealed. Ubisoft’s upcoming next-gen exclusive romp through the French revolution first leaked on NeoGAF, after a user supposedly shared a plane trip with an employee who revealed some details about the game. Kotaku then got its hands on some...

Hands On: Ubisoft Abandons Weapons for Watercolours in Child of Light on PS4

Ubisoft Abandons Weapons for Watercolours in Child of Light on PS4

Sweet child o' mine

Female protagonists are a rare sight. Most games lean towards a male lead, allowing women to – at most – occupy the role of a sidekick. Child of Light, however, sees a young girl take centre stage in an intriguing PlayStation 4 production. Elaborately named Aurora, the protagonist is a princess, and although her crown slips...

Review: Rayman Legends (PlayStation 4)

Rayman Legends (PlayStation 4)

Everybody loves Rayman

After spending far too much time in the shadow of the Raving Rabbids, Rayman made a triumphant return to consoles in Rayman Origins. While critically celebrated, this bonkers platformer with its bright and colourful art style never really found the wider audience that it truly deserved. Fortunately, Ubisoft has given gamers a...

Assassin's Creed: Unity Drops a Heavy Blade on PS4 This Holiday

Oui, s'il vous plaît

Rather than offer a casual no comment, Ubisoft has responded to rumours regarding Assassin’s Creed: Unity by confirming the release for the PlayStation 4. Clearly not intending to announce the title quite so early, the publisher has deployed some alpha footage of the next-gen exclusive sequel. Given the firm’s track...

This Is Why You Should Play Watch Dogs on PS4

Only on PlayStation*

Watch Dogs is coming to a slew of different systems, but Sony really wants you to play it on the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3.

Sacré Bleu! You'll Be Travelling to Paris in the Next Assassin's Creed

It's a Seine

Ubisoft’s globetrotting historical franchise Assassin’s Creed is set to come inland for its next instalment, as Kotaku has got its gloved mitts on some leaked screenshots from the series’ supposed next entry. Currently codenamed Unity, the images – which you can point your powdered eyes at throughout this article – prove...

How Long Will Watch Dogs Stay Connected to Your PS4?

Conference call

While there hasn’t been a software drought in the traditional sense, the PlayStation 4 has coasted through a couple of slow months since its launch late last year. Fortunately, that’s all set to change next week with the arrival of inFAMOUS: Second Son and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. There’s going to be no shortage of...
