News: Ubisoft Reckons You Wouldn't Want to Play an Assassin's Creed Game Set in Feudal Japan

Ubisoft Reckons You Wouldn't Want to Play an Assassin's Creed Game Set in Feudal Japan

A code of honour

For quite a while now, fans of Assassin's Creed have been pondering a title set in the East. An oriental excursion always sounded like a neat idea to us, but Ubisoft thinks it may be something that wouldn't hold much appeal. Speaking to Total Xbox, Assassin's Creed III creative director Alex Hutchinson remarked that a feudal...

Just Dance 2015 (PlayStation 4)

Because I’m happy

Another year brings another instalment into Ubisoft’s multiplatform dance juggernaut, predictably entitled Just Dance 2015 this time. The aim of the game is as simple as it gets: you have to replicate the dance moves that the on-screen silhouette dancers perform in time with the music and as accurately as you can. The ethos is...

Fur-person shooter

Ubisoft’s gone and put its Bigfoot in it again. The French firm has announced a Season Pass for its upcoming Himalayan first-person shooter Far Cry 4, which will come with a selection of additional missions and objectives for the most ardent adventurers.

Interview: Will Tom Clancy's The Division Deliver on the PS4?

Will Tom Clancy's The Division Deliver on the PS4?

Massive expectations

Ubisoft sure knows how to make a splash. Tom Clancy’s The Division, much like Watch Dogs before it, dropped jaws at E3 2013, when it was announced for the PlayStation 4. The game – an open world third-person shooter with strong role-playing influences – not only promised to drag the industry into the next generation with...

Sorry Ubisoft, But This Is the Worst Unboxing Ever

Taking the unboxing out of unboxing

Ubisoft, when you label your video as an unboxing, please understand that it comes with a set of standards attached. It’s a bit like the PlayStation TV – people thought that they’d be able to watch Netflix on that thing, and were understandably irritated when they couldn’t. So, while this Far Cry 4 Kyrat...

This New Far Cry 4 Trailer Shows Off Kyrat's Colourful Characters

Kyrat race

There's a new Far Cry game on the horizon, which means that Ubisoft is hard at work sending us trailers every other day. We've not posted them all, of course, because we can only listen to so much marketing jargon and dubstep before we permanently reinvent the definition of insanity. But on a lazy - and decidedly slow - Sunday like today,...

Ubisoft Insists That Assassin's Creed Unity Hasn't Been Scaled Back on PS4

Res Misérables

Ubisoft has attempted to still the unrest caused by yesterday’s French Resolution. Some slightly misjudged comments by senior producer Vincent Pontbriand suggested that the publisher had scaled back the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed Unity in order to match the specifications of the Xbox One release, but a spokesperson...

The Crew Takes Time to Make a Few Additional Recruits

Ambitious racer spending a few extra weeks in the workshop

Ubisoft will be taking a little extra time to tinker with its ambitious open world racing release The Crew, as the title has taken a detour into December. The constantly connected ‘CaRPG’ had originally been set to take to the track on 11th November, but will now hit the road on 2nd...

Ubisoft Locks Assassin's Creed Unity's PS4 Resolution to Avoid Debates

Gulp

Either someone at Ubisoft has said something very silly, or there’s some seriously shady stuff going on behind the scenes. Those that have been following the console industry closely over the past year or so will be aware that the PlayStation 4 has showed a significant technical lead over its closest competitor the Xbox One – and that’s...

Review: Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (PlayStation 4)

Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (PlayStation 4)

Dreadlock screen

Watch Dogs was a solid sandbox title that was let down by a shallow story and a weak cast of characters, and even though it featured a number of well designed missions and some great combat, a severe lack of personality kept proceedings from being truly memorable. Flash forward, and we have the game's first expansion: Bad Blood...

Hack To Your Heart's Content with This Watch Dogs: Bad Blood DLC Launch Trailer

Spoilers, probably

If Watch Dogs' main quest wasn't enough to satiate your appetite for deftly shattering computer software, never fear, as the title will soon be receiving extra downloadable content. Titled Bad Blood, the DLC will see you playing as Raymond 'T-Bone' Kenney, attempting to outrun his past demons. In order to drum up excitement,...
