Video: Assassin’s Creed Unity officially revealed in teaser trailer

We got an early glimpse of the next Assassin’s Creed courtesy of Kotaku earlier this week, and now Ubisoft has responded with an official teaser trailer of its own. It looks like the new generation game will be called Assassin’s Creed Unity, as the leak suggested, and will be set in a ridiculously good looking digital recreation of France. Ubisoft has been working on Unity for over three years, and although the team hadn’t planned on revealing footage this early in development, the leaked images apparently forced their hand. It might still be in alpha, but if this is truly in-game footage, we’re in store for one stunning Assassin’s Creed game on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year. Check out the trailer below.

Video: Celebrate Watch Dogs’ May 27th release date with a new trailer

Watch Dogs made a huge splash at E3, promising to be one of the stand-out launch window titles for the new consoles, but to our dismay, the game was delayed until spring just weeks before it was scheduled to release. Months later, Ubisoft is finally ready to share a new release date: May 27th on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The game is still going to make it to the Wii U as well, but Ubisoft hasn’t set a date quite yet. Along with the date comes a new trailer, delving deeper into the story of Aiden Pearce, the hacker who plans to use the city of Chicago as a weapon against his foes. He looks really angry. Check out the new footage of Watch Dogs below. More →

South Park: The Stick of Truth Review

Review: ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ for PlayStation 3

Review: ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ for PlayStation 3

South Park: The Stick of Truth is, among other things, the best episode of South Park I’ve seen in years. Matt Stone and Trey Parker went as hands-on with this project as they have with anything outside of the actual cartoon, and it shows. It’s belligerent, horrific, hysterical and it feels fresh. But woven between the hysteria, there’s a game that you’re going to have to play. So is that game any good? More →

Video: Watch the first 13 foul-mouthed minutes of ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’

Let’s say you’re a fan of role-playing games, but you can’t find one aggressively offensive enough to suit your tastes. I might have the perfect game for you. South Park: The Stick of Truth is the first major retail release of a South Park branded console game since the Nintendo 64 and the original PlayStation were still the latest and greatest. The Stick of Truth is a full-featured RPG, complete with distinct classes to choose from, weapons to purchase, spells to cast, quests to complete and party members to meet along the way. More →

Assassin's Creed 5 Announcement

Assassin’s Creed 5 could be the next major announcement from Ubisoft

Assassin’s Creed 5 could be the next major announcement from Ubisoft

After the disappointment that was Assassin’s Creed 3, many gamers were beginning to see the fault lines in the long-running franchise. The story had become almost impenetrably convoluted and the mission structure started feeling stale, but against all odds Ubisoft pulled a complete reversal with Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, which quickly became one of the most well-received entries in the history of the series. There has not been any major news concerning the follow-up to the latest, swashbuckling Assassin’s Creed, but Ubisoft finally hinted at an upcoming announcement in its earnings call on Monday.

Ubisoft drops DRM from PC games despite soaring piracy rates

Ubisoft drops DRM from PC games despite soaring piracy rates

Ubisoft Ends PC Gaming DRM

For years, gamers have complained about Ubisoft’s (UBI.PA) poor implementation of DRM for its PC games to no avail. But in an interview published by RockPaperShotgun, Ubisoft worldwide director of online games Stephanie Perotti says that Ubisoft has, since June of last year, quietly ended its “always-on DRM” for PC games. The DRM policy required PC games to always be connected to the Internet in order to load. Moving forward, Ubisoft-published PC games will only require a one-time online activation during installation. The company will also eliminate limits on both the number of times a game can be activated and on the number of PCs it can be installed upon. Ubisoft’s change of heart comes after CEO Yves Guillemot recently said that DRM was a necessary evil due to high piracy rates that topped 90%.

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon comes to Facebook [video]

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon comes to Facebook [video]

Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Facebook

Facebook, the world’s largest social networking site, is filled with a large selection of social and casual games, such as Draw Something, Words With Friends and FarmVille. While the topic of Facebook gaming is widely discussed, there isn’t much there in the way of titles that would attract the hardcore gaming crowd. Ubisoft is looking to change that, however, with the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Commander. The game, unlike its console counterpart, is not a first-person shooter but instead a 2D game with an overhead viewpoint that contains both social and more complex aspects. Players are given the option to invite and team up with their Facebook friends to form alliances and complete a variety of missions. The Facebook game is also integrated with “Ghost Recon Future Soldier” on consoles, allowing players to unlock characters, experience points and currency that can be used in both games. Ghost Recon Commander is available now on Facebook, and Ubisoft’s trailer follows below. More →
