Tap Up 30 Minutes of Watch Dogs 2 Gameplay

Hacked off

It's one of the biggest games of the year, but our looks at Watch Dogs 2 have been limited to say the least. Ubisoft, ever the experts at earning column inches for their wares, has hooked up the enthusiast press with tons of new gameplay footage -- and because our invite got lost in the post, we've reproduced Eurogamer.net's coverage...

The Division Is Still the Best Selling Game of 2016, Ubisoft Reminds Us

But is anyone still playing it?

We remember the lead up to The Division's launch like it was yesterday. The online shooter had a huge amount of hype behind it, with many claiming that it was fated to be the next big thing. It then released to solid reviews and plenty of sales. For a while, it's safe to say that The Division was a hit. However, it...

South Park: The Fractured but Whole Clenches Its Cheeks Till 2017

Stinker

It's that time of the year where release dates get chopped and changed, as publishers realise that releasing their wares amid the holiday rush perhaps isn't the best plan. South Park: The Fractured but Whole is the latest casualty, as Ubisoft has pushed the licensed role-playing game out of December and into Q1 2017. "The development team...

Sharpen Up with Three More For Honor Gameplay Trailers

Adding to the ranks

We hope that you like trailers, because For Honor's got three more of them. Showcasing a trio of new character classes from each faction, the relatively short clips do a good job of explaining what each warrior is about. Above, you can get a look at the Orochi - a Samurai swordmaster who's also keen on using a few ninja...

Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection Charms PS4 from 15th November

Italy awaits

Ubisoft just couldn't do it. The publisher had said that it wanted to give Assassin's Creed a break, and we'd let the French firm off the hook when it deployed those episodic side-scrolling games. But here we are: the holidays are approaching, and it's managed to pump out Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection just in time. The...

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...

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...
