Highlights from the Ubisoft showcase – E3 2017

So Ubisoft’s conference took place at 5am in Australia when we were well and truly snoozing. But without further delay, here’s the highlights from their showcase, with a couple of big surprises in there. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle actually looks… good? As a general concept, this game seems like a massive garbage fire. But it’s hard to stay mad at something when Shigeru ...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 teaser confirms Montana setting

Ahead of a worldwide reveal later this week, Ubisoft has released some teaser videos for Far Cry 5 which confirm the game will be set in Montana. Specifically, it will be set in the fictitious “Hope County”, a region that seems a beautiful as it is eerie as balls. Check out the videos below, all of which depict the gorgeous landscapes of Hope County, only to be ruined by the occasional...[Read More]

Ghost Recon Wildlands review: Not big in Bolivia

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher. It’s been some time since we last saw the Ghosts in action. More action-focused than Rainbow, but still very tactical, the Ghost Recon games have changed with each release, and this latest outing is no different. It ditches the future warfighter setting of the previous entries in favour of a more contemporary setting, and gone are the separate lev...[Read More]

For Honor review: A whole lot of guttural yelling

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Basically Dynasty Warriors meets Just Dance, For Honor incorporates a whole lot of features gamers will be familiar with, and creates something unique in the process. Available in single and multiplayer modes, the game has quite a lot going for it, and it really does shine in some areas, but unfortunately is cringe inducing in others. LetR...[Read More]

For Honor closed beta test coming later in January

Anyone keen to clash some swords in Ubisoft’s upcoming For Honor will have reason to be excited today, the publisher has confirmed the dates of the game’s closed beta test: January 26-29 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. The closed beta is, well, closed so for a chance to be involved you need to sign up over on For Honor’s website, here. Interestingly though, everyone who does g...[Read More]

Werewolves Within review: Lie to strangers in VR

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by Ubisoft. I should probably open this review by saying that I have played a LOT of Werewolves, as in the classic card game that turns friends into mortal enemies when you lie to their face. So I was more than familiar with the concept, and when it was announced Ubisoft were publishing a VR version developed by Red Storm Entertainment, I was intrigued. A game of dec...[Read More]

For Honor will be always online

For Honor, the upcoming competitive, team based hack-n-slash game from Ubisoft, will require an always online internet connection, despite previous statements to the contrary. A NeoGAF user recently posted a response from a Ubisoft community representative to a forum post asking about For Honor’s internet requirements, saying players will need to be connected “at all times” in or...[Read More]

Watch Dogs 2 review: Dangerous hipsters

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by Ubisoft. Kicking off with a retro interface and 80s music, one thing is pretty clear when you boot up Watch Dogs 2, it’s nothing like the overly serious and gloomy original. The predictable story of Aiden Pearce has been replaced with a tongue in cheek look at hacking, and it’s something that the series sorely needed to regain favour of the public. The...[Read More]

Watch Dogs 2 delayed on PC by two weeks

Well, this is certainly unheard of. I mean, a Ubisoft game’s PC version being delayed by two weeks compared to its console counterparts? This is certainly a first. Wait, did I say “a first”? I meant the other thing, what do you call it, “no surprise at all, since this happens to pretty much all their PC ports.” If you couldn’t tell from my sarcasm and the headli...[Read More]

The Division Underground DLC review: Undergrind

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. So we’re a little late with this review considering Underground came out over a month ago, but you know, grinding takes time! The first paid DLC for Ubisoft’s massive online shooter was always going to be a good indicator whether the game still has legs nearly five months after release, and the good news is it kind of does, but it might not...[Read More]

New Watch_Dogs 2 gameplay shows hacking via RC toys

I’ve said before how 2014’s Watch_Dogs was a fantastic example of how you should and shouldn’t market a game. Its pre-release material looked unreal, in fact it looked literally unreal because it turned out to not be representative of the final product. With the upcoming Watch_Dogs 2 however, it seems Ubisoft have learned their lesson, with their latest gameplay clip from the gam...[Read More]

UNO 2016 review: Where the wild cards are

I admit it; my friends and I have been waiting for a new UNO ever since the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The 2006 version of UNO on Xbox 360 was one of the only games that we still used the console for (seriously, it’s an intense game). So I was of course, extremely happy when I saw that a new UNO was coming to the new consoles, and PC. But would it live up to the hype? This version o...[Read More]
