Review: Grow Up (PS4)

Grow Up (PS4)

Just playing the game, having a BUD

It was perhaps a little surprising to see a sequel to last year's botanical platforming adventure Grow Home, especially one that would release so swiftly. Grow Up released less than 12 months after its predecessor, and we were curious to find out what could've changed in that short space of time. As it turns out,...

The Division DLC Plans Pushed Back as Dev Works on Fixing the Core Game

The will to survive

Developer Ubisoft Massive has taken a step back and reanalysed its current situation following a rocky few months for The Division - its co-op based, loot-heavy shooter. The game launched back in March, and, as we recall, was hyped up to be the next big thing. And, while it did manage to make a splash initially, it quickly...

Requiescat in Pace! Is Ezio's Assassin's Creed Trilogy Coming to PS4?

Italian stallion

Ubisoft's taken several stabs at a new Assassin's Creed protagonist over the years, but none of them have stuck like Ezio Auditore – his story ended years ago, but he's still fondly remembered by fans, after all. And it looks like, in the absence of a new entry in the historical series this year, the publisher's looking to bring...

Watch Dogs 2 Multiplayer Is Totally Optional, But It Looks Cool

Hack that

Much like the first Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2 will feature "seamless" online functionality, allowing you to connect with other players while you roam around doing story missions. You'll be able to form co-op groups with friendly hackers, take part in invasions, and even hunt down players who have been causing a bit too much trouble. On...

For Honor Should Grab Your Attention in New Gameplay Trailer

You can sign up for the alpha now

Knights versus samurai versus vikings. That's not a bad concept for a game, and we're hopeful that For Honor, Ubisoft's melee-based battle-'em-up, will live up to expectations. The gritty title's received a new gameplay trailer at Gamescom which spotlights the three abovementioned factions - and to us, it's still...

Grow Up on 16th August with PS4 Platformer

Pre-order promotion dates several titles

The sequel to Grow Home has been dated as part of a pre-order promotion on the European PlayStation Store, which sees PlayStation Plus members securing...

Review: Trials of the Blood Dragon (PS4)

Trials of the Blood Dragon (PS4)

A e s t h e t i c

For all its faux-eighties foolishness, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was a very clever game. It took an established franchise, gave it a splash of visual variety, and then injected it with some bizarre characters and mechanics. Above all, it was silly, fun, and endearing. Unfortunately, Trials of the Blood Dragon is none of those things...

What Did Ubisoft Announce At Its E3 2016 Press Conference?

Steep! Watch Dogs 2! South Park! For Honor!

E3 2016 is off to something of a dismal start, and Ubisoft's press conference didn't really improve things all that much. That said, the French publisher did have a lot of cool content to show – it just presented it in the most turgid manner imaginable. You'll find all of the headlines below. E3...

Have a Good Long Gander at a Mission From Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Complete with cringey commentary

Who can forget the incredibly authentic commentary of "real" players talking over their Tom Clancy's The Division multiplayer sessions in trailers from past E3 conferences? Well, you can have more of that in an honestly impressive showing of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands gameplay, that shows us a host of...
