Assassin’s Creed is skipping 2016, but Ubisoft says they’ve got a full slate for the coming fiscal year. By April 1, 2017, they’ll release: Watch Dogs 2 (which we’ve reported is set in San Francisco), For Honor, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and a new game “with strong digital live…
For the first time since 2009, Ubisoft will not release a big Assassin’s Creed game this fall, the publisher said today. It’s a huge shift for their tentpole series.
Patch notes for Ubisoft’s open beta for the company’s early-March shooter The Division have some good news for those who tried the game’s recent closed beta and saw some flaws in its promising quasi-player-vs-player Dark Zone section.
The Division is getting another beta this month, Ubisoft announced today. This time, it’ll be open to everyone. It’ll be live from February 19-21 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. (Like last time, Xbox players can start 24 hours early, on February 18.)
There really aren’t enough Assassin’s Creed games these days, so it’s a good thing Ubisoft just announced that the mobile action-RPG Assassin’s Creed Identity, released ages ago in Australia, will be out in the U.S. on February 25. It’ll be $5.
So, now that The Division’s beta is over, let’s take a look back and... wait, what? The beta was extended? Just like so many other pre-release tests nowadays? You don’t say.
The only technical testing I’ve done with the beta of Ubisoft’s upcoming game The Division is seeing whether I’ll like it. So far, it has passed that test.
We Dare was more famous for its commercial than its gameplay, largely because the backlash to the trailer was so strong that Ubisoft basically cancelled it.
One would think an easter egg that involves eating delicious-looking cake would have been uncovered within the first few days of Assassin’s Creed Unity’s release, but no. It took a year and change for this Unity secret to be revealed, and the payoff is quite delicious.
At Ubisoft, big video games like Assassin’s Creed are developed by hundreds of people at many different studios across the world. As you might imagine, this can be an organizational nightmare.
In Rainbow Six Siege, you’re never completely safe. Case in point: in this GIF by uhmsay, an enemy is hunkered down with the (reviled by many) riot shield and heavy armor in a difficult-to-breach room. And yet, their death is still swift and brutal. The lesson? When in doubt, reinforce the floor.
The recently-released Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India plays ok (very much like ACC: China before it), but, wow, does it look pretty. The game’s artists took splendid advantage of how rare it is to see a game set in India. I had to capture some footage to show you. Enjoy!
A few days ago a bunch of members of the gaming press went and played Ubisoft’s upcoming tactical shooter/RPG Tom Clancy’s The Division. Let’s see what they thought of it.
Cheaters are the bane of multiplayer games’ existence. Regrettably, however, some games go easier on them than others. For a while, Rainbow Six Siege was one of those games.
I was kidnapping a guy the other night in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and overheard a couple of Londoners engaging in some insult sword fighting. If you ask me, most of the enemies in these games fight like dairy farmers...

Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical team-based shooter where lone wolf tactics are often punishable by swift, well-deserved death. But what happens when all your teammates leave a match and you have no choice but to go it alone? For most, it’s certain doom. For one player, it was an opportunity.
Rainbow Six Siege just got a big update. 1.2 is not meant to fix all top issues, but it does improve hit registration (again), server tick rate, and matchmaking. Basically, if the game pissed you off with server issues or lopsided matchmaking (hi, that’s me), it might be time to give it another shot.
A lot of very nice words have (surprisingly, given Unity’s qualities) been written about the latest Assassin’s Creed game, but there’s one thing a lot of them overlook: just how pretty this video game is.
