Eurogamer reports back from Ubidays 08 that a demonstrator let slip word that voice commands will be able to order around your fellow fighter pilots in Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
Ubisoft handed out packs of these four Raving Rabbids at this year's Ubidays. I'm not a huge schwag fan myself, but these managed to melt even my cold heart. And yes, we're sorry Ubisoft, turns out Sam Fischer did make an appearance at your show.
Last week reports surfaced suggesting that Splinter Cell: Conviction, the latest chapter in Ubisoft's Sam Fisher saga, had gone back to the drawing board for a drastic reworking. Now that the company's Ubidays event has come and gone without even a thumbnail screenshot from the game, a representative is ready to give…
For those of you who somehow missed all of our Ubisoft coverage, which stretched from early afternoon until late into the night, I've compiled all of our stories on the jump. They include hands on with Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, H.A.W.X. and Far Cry 2 as well as tons of interviews and impressions.
There was loads of good stuff on show at Ubidays. Loads. The announcement of Beyond Good & Evil 2 probably stole the show, but Prince of Persia and H.A.W.X. are also looking mighty promising. But you know what? We've covered those already. And they weren't the only games on show. No, with Ubidays, as with all things…
Far Cry 2 uses a proprietary engine that was built from the ground up for the game. The developers told me that about 175 people worked on creating the engine and then the game for the PC. Currently that team is working to build in DX10 support, though it wasn't ready when I had a chance to look at it.
Ubisoft held their Paris Ubidays today, officially announcing that Beyond Good & Evil was on its way along with a slew of other titles including a DS game to help people quit smoking and a new snowboard title.
Far Cry 2 is set in Africa, but what part? Turns out it's in a fictional, Africa, one that while it may resembles bits and pieces of the continent, isn't in fact tied to anyone area.
I've loosely followed the Brothers in Arms franchise through its couple of iterations, but despite the tight command system it's never really struck a chord with me. It just wasn't different enough to separate itself from the pack.
Far Cry 2, Ubisoft's answer to Grand Theft Auto meets Mercenaries 2, has a lot going for it from its enormous 50-square kilometer map to its use of animal AI. Another neat feature is how they've decided to deal with the player character.
Prince of Persia is getting a make over, one that not only gives the Prince a new look but breaks from the storyline that linked the franchise's trilogy so close together.
As I mentioned earlier, Ubisoft is getting into the Snowboarding game... game. Shaun White will, among other things, feature a Wii version that lets you use your Balance Board to board around open mountains.
It feels like Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. is Ubisoft's attempt at bringing a more, dare I say it, casual gamer into the historically hardcore flight sim fanbase.
It's official: At Ubisoft's Ubidays 08 event in Paris, CEO Yves Guillemot unveiled a trailer for the company's next project: Beyond Good & Evil 2.
Back on Friday I decided that after over 22 years it was finally time for me to quit smoking. Since then I've made enemies of my cats, yelled at anyone with the gall to call me on the telephone I purchased to stay in touch with those same people, made vicious enemies of my cats, and started repeating myself. Now…
Among the top-tier games shown at Ubidays earlier this month, snowboarding title Shaun White was the one I was least interested in. While snowboarding is a sport complex and interesting enough to be a vehicle for a good video game, the franchises that have cropped up never seem to stick around for very long. And it…
Can't get enough Raving Rabbids? Well you're not alone, Ubisoft is crazy for their crazy hares as well.
It's like Grand Theft Auto IV on the Serengeti, but not really.
Far Cry 2 looks like the sort of game I could get completely lost in. Looking at the scenic environments in this video, a preview clip from Ubisoft's upcoming Ubidays press event, I get the urge to just wander about. Maybe it's just my recent exposure to Wild Earth: African Safari talking, but what they've created…
