If I have one guilty pleasure series, it’s Assassin’s Creed. Normally, I’m not one to get excited about yearly releases, let alone broken games. But I’ve played and mostly enjoyed every game in the series. Recently, I returned to Assassin’s Creed II, and, much to my surprise, I realized just how much I’ve lowered my…
This weekend at fighting game For Honor’s big Season Three tournament for PC, a big, long-standing exploit forged one player’s path to victory. After the match, the victor stated: “I didn’t think it’d be this easy. . . Before the tournament, I hadn’t played the game for two weeks.”
Watch Dogs 2 got its final patch today, which makes impossible to use mods while online if you’re playing on PC. The game’s publisher, Ubisoft, says that this is to ensure fair online play, but the game’s small modding community is very frustrated.
When it was announced late last month for iOS and Android, Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion looked a bit like Ubisoft’s answer to Fallout Shelter. It’s actually a clever take on turn-based squad strategy, as well as one of the best mobile AC games yet.
A temporary Independence Day celebration in Watch Dogs 2 was suspended early on July 4 because it was enraging too many people who still play Ubisoft’s late 2016 open-world game.
Once upon a time there was going to be a Rayman game for the SNES. Series creator Michel Ancel was one of two people working on it, but the project never came to fruition. A prototype build of the game that surfaced last fall, however, has finally made it onto the Internet thanks to game designer and archivist Omar…
Coming soon to iOS and Android, Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion looks to be Ubisoft and Behaviour Interactive’s take on Fallout Shelter. Build an HQ and use it to train Xbox avatar-looking assassins like Ezio and Aguilar before sending them out on “epic missions.” Interesting.
As the community anxiously awaits the post-launch PVP mode, some Ghost Recon: Wildlands players are getting crafty with their own in-game challenges.
Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones looked good at E3, but boy, this concept art for the game is looking real good.
We saw it. Now you can see it. Today, Ubisoft put out a video of Michel Ancel playing the Beyond Good & Evil 2 tech demo shown behind closed doors at E3. Look for radical zooming from planet surface to space, and planet-spanning flight. For more about what the game is supposed to be, read our interview with Ancel.
Last week, a poster on the message board NeoGAF asked why South Park: The Fractured But Whole was taking so long to develop. After all, isn’t 2D easy to draw? “First and foremost,” the poster wrote, “the game uses the same graphical style as the show. Which is probably the easiest to make.” Well, my dear Mousnis,…
“This is day zero of Beyond Good & Evil 2,” Michel Ancel told me on Monday. As he spoke, he was playing an early version of a game people have been expecting for nearly a decade, but that he says has only actually been in development for a few years.
I played Assassin’s Creed Origins for an hour yesterday, with one of the game’s level designers at my side pointing out cool stuff.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was one of the strangest announcements at E3 this year, and fearless Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo got a chance to play it for about 15 minutes. Based on what we’ve seen so far, this mash-up works surprisingly well!
Jason and I continue our Kotaku Splitscreen E3 2017 coverage discussing press conferences from Sony, Bethesda, and Ubisoft. Which company had the best show? Or rather, which was the least disappointing? Listen to find out.
I think it’s safe to say that Michel Ancel has been through some shit when it comes to Beyond Good & Evil.
Did you want another way to play Skyrim? If so, lucky you, because it’s coming to PlayStation VR, Sony announced at E3 tonight.
When a marketing presentation for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was leaked in May, the internet met it with mockery and bafflement. But now that people have finally seen the game in action at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, the internet has done a 180. Huh.
Ubisoft hit the stage Monday afternoon at E3 to show a new trailer for Beyond Good & Evil 2, along with some other stuff that was completely overshadowed by the fact that OH MAN THEY ACTUALLY SHOWED BEYOND GOOD & EVIL 2.
