  • News Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Mercenary System Sounds Super Cool

    The hunt begins

    Remember the Phylakes in Assassin's Creed Origins? They were powerful enemies that would roam the map in an attempt to hunt protagonist Bayek down. Basically, they were optional bosses, and fighting them was a highlight of last year's game. This year, however, it seems as though Assassin's Creed Odyssey is taking the system and...

  • News Child of Light 2 Is Looking Like a Lock

    Hopefully it's not more schlock

    Ubisoft’s twee role-playing game Child of Light will likely get a sequel, as creative director Patrick Plourde teased that there are “very cool projects in the universe” afoot. He followed up with a photograph of the just-announced Nintendo Switch edition, which not-so-subtly shows a document with ‘Child of...

    Review Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars

    Spaced out

    Far Cry 5, like a few of Ubisoft's high profile releases, has come with the promise of a weird and wonderful DLC schedule that takes the base game and places it in increasingly strange scenarios. Lost on Mars is the latest bizarre excursion for the open world shooter, and it's probably about what you're expecting. It doesn't take itself...

  • News Another Big Ghost Recon: Wildlands Patch Sneaks into View Next Week

    The mission continues

    One of those games that you don't hear too much about here on the 'net but has been a huge success story, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is receiving another large, feature-rich update next week. Ubisoft's been diligent in its support for the co-op-based stealth shooter, and this upcoming patch boasts yet more welcome additions. To...

  • News New South Park: The Fractured But Whole DLC Is Called Bring the Crunch, Out This Month

    New campaign and class

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole is set to receive its second post-launch DLC at the very end of this month, Ubisoft has announced. Entitled Bring the Crunch, the add-on brings a brand new campaign and hero class to the game. Here's Ubi's description of the new campaign: "In Bring the Crunch, your newest buddy, Mint-Berry...

  • News Assassin's Creed Odyssey Will Continue the Modern Day Story of Origins

    Sigh

    We bloody love Assassin's Creed Origins here at Push Square, but those modern day segments were, in a word, awful -- and they're returning in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Okay, so the modern day story stuff made up about two per cent of the whole game, but they've always felt so unnecessary. One minute you're exploring this huge, lush world and...

  • News Far Cry 5's Barmy Sci-Fi Expansion Has Lost the Plot

    In the best possible way

    You’ve got to love how Ubisoft has started going bananas with add-on packs for its biggest hits. The French publisher appears to be having a whole lot of fun with expansions like Lost on Mars, a new DLC episode for Far Cry 5 due out on 17th July. It’s the second of three premium content drops, after the previous one...

  • News The Division 2 Campaign and Endgame Can Be Played Single-Player

    Lone wolf

    The Division 2 won't force you to group up with friends or randoms, Ubisoft has confirmed. Much like the first game, you'll be able to fly solo and enjoy just about everything that the title has to offer without forming a squad. Game director Mathias Karlson told Aus Gamers: "You can play through the entire story campaign into endgame and...

  • News Latest Far Cry 5 Update Brings Photo Mode to Hope County

    Shoot-em-up

    For those who are still enjoying Far Cry 5 and its modern Montana setting, Ubisoft has just put out an update that brings a robust Photo Mode. You can snap some pictures during any solo content, meaning the main game, the DLC, and any solo missions in Far Cry Arcade. Accessing Photo Mode is as simple as pausing the game, and it gives...

    Review The Crew 2

    Déjà crew

    One of the elements that was universally praised about The Crew was its open world. While developer Ivory Tower’s abbreviated version of the USA was a wonderfully put together slice of Americana, the surrounding game, ultimately let things down with its Fast & Furious-inspired story, and disappointing opponent AI. With The Crew...

  • Report Assassin's Creed Odyssey Will Have Dialogue Trees

    Set in Ancient Greece

    Assassin’s Creed Origins transformed Ubisoft’s famous franchise into a Witcher-esque role-playing game, and it seems leaked sequel Odyssey will go one step further, adding dialogue trees to the series for the first time. News comes courtesy of Kotaku, who spoke to several people familiar with the project. As expected, the...

  • News Assassin's Creed Odyssey Leaked Via Collectible Keychain

    Direct sequel to Origins?

    A photograph of a keyring has outed Ubisoft's next Assassin's Creed entry. Picked up by Jeux-Video, the next game in the series will be named Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Judging by the trinket in the picture, it looks as though we'll be heading to ancient Rome or Greece in the next adventure. This lines up with how...

    Motorcycle menagerie

    Republished on Wednesday 30th May 2018: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of June's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. 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...

  • News The Division 2 Due Before April 2019, Alongside The Crew 2 and Unannounced Ubisoft Title

    All of them 'AAA'

    In the latest earnings report from Ubisoft, the French publisher lets slip some of its plans for the relatively near future. For starters, the report states that The Division 2 -- announced but not shown back in March -- is due out this fiscal year. In other words, it'll launch at some point between now and April 2019. The shooter...

  • News Star Trek: Bridge Crew Brings the Next Generation to Life

    Next-gen

    Ubisoft’s superb at supporting its games over long periods of time, and it hasn’t forgotten about the surprisingly entertaining PlayStation VR co-op title, Star Trek: Bridge Crew. Now also playable without a virtual reality headset, a new expansion due out on 22nd May will add The Next Generation content to the release for...

  • News Beyond Good & Evil 2 Appears to Be Making Some Progress

    But not much

    It’s been a year since Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced, and here are some Ubisoft employees talking about it in thick French accents. This is all still very much work in progress stuff, and frankly it doesn’t look like it’s come that far since E3 2017, but that’s to be expected from a title that will never come out. Okay,...

    Everybody loves Rayman

    Republished on Wednesday 25th April 2018: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of May's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. After spending far too much time in the shadow of the Raving Rabbids, Rayman made a triumphant return to consoles in Rayman Origins. While...

  • News Here's 12 Crazy Minutes of Footage for The Crew 2

    Transformers

    The Crew 2 is shaping up to be far bigger and better than the 2014 original, and one of the biggest factors behind that is the ability to switch between your chosen method of transport at any moment. Just take a look at how utterly bonkers this looks in practice in the video above as a car turns into a plane before your eyes, and then...

  • News Ubisoft Dates Its E3 2018 Press Conference

    Join the club

    Following in the footsteps of EA and Bethesda, Ubisoft has slapped a date on its E3 2018 press conference. The French publisher's show will take place on the 11th June, at 21:00 UK time. So that's 13:00 Pacific, and 16:00 Eastern. Based on our admittedly spotty memories of past E3 pressers, this is all pretty standard stuff for...

  • Soapbox Far Cry 5's Arcade Mode Is One of the Worst Multiplayer Offerings This Generation

    Liam's having a curation nightmare

    Tacked-on multiplayer modes were something that plagued the previous generation of consoles with poor online options that didn't really need to be there at all. Ninja Gaiden III brought its bloodshed to multiple players at once to little applause, BioShock 2 distributed plasmids online with not a lot of fanfare,...

  • News If You Need Something to Play This Weekend, Ghost Recon: Wildlands Is Free on PS4

    Tango yankee

    Look, we've all been there. A big game's on the horizon (God of War) and you're a bit scared of starting something new before launch in case you don't get it finished in time. Perfectly natural. So you're just looking for something that's not too involved. Maybe you can grind away the hours on Monster Hunter: World? Not a bad idea. Or...

  • News Ghost Recon: Wildlands' Sam Fisher References Metal Gear Solid

    "Then it's only me..."

    Oh no, this one hit us hard. Back when the PS2 vs Xbox console war was at its height, Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher was always pitted as Microsoft's answer to Solid Snake – before the stealth classics made their way over to the PlayStation 2 of course. With the demise of the Metal Gear Solid franchise following the...

  • News Assassin's Creed Origins PS4 Patch 1.4.2 Fixes a Whole Load of Minor Issues

    Siwa will know peace

    Ubisoft is still working away at fixing, tweaking, and adjusting Assassin's Creed Origins, with the game's latest update now available on PlayStation 4. Patch 1.4.2 weighs in at a reasonably hefty 3.7GB or thereabouts, but there doesn't appear to be anything too exciting on offer here. A quick look at the official...

  • News Far Cry 5 Destroys Franchise Sales Records

    Digital sales surpass 50 per cent

    Ubisoft sure knows how to sell video games, with Far Cry 5 more than doubling the sales of its numbered predecessor to become the fastest selling title in the franchise’s history. New data from the French publisher reveals that more than 50 per cent of the copies were sold digitally through venues such as the...
