Ubi announce bear necessities for Far Cry 5 on PC, inc 4K specs

It's been a long time since Far Cry games were how you gave your PC its fiercest work-out, but hell, old habits. Ubi have just put out system requirements for March's Montana-set Far Cry 5 and they're pretty reasonable, in the main. Basically, if you have at least a GTX 670 or R9 270 you're getting in the door, though if you want to crank…

Far Cry 5 & The Crew 2 announced, Ass Creed teased

Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2, Ubisoft announced today, as if you hadn't already guessed. That's it. They have nothing of substance to say about either game. Oh, and would you believe that more Assassin's Creed is coming too? Astonishing. Ladies and germs, we truly are in the runup to E3. Ooh I swear it starts earlier and shoutier every year! Back in my…

Steam’s Autumn sale has begun – here’s some picks

Aside from starting a new tradition of unusually-named Steam Awards, Valve have also pulled out their worn and adored bargain bucket and have begun to fill it with games you’ll enthusiastically buy and probably never play. Yes, it's their Autumn Sale. In the streets, the apocalyptic jockeying for TVs and blenders has started. The moon has turned blood red. And I looked and behold a…

Ubisoft’s Annual Uplay Spring Sale Now On

My calendar tells me we're now over halfway through April. The Met Office tells me astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere started on March 20. Yet the weatherman told me yesterday that I can expect highs of a whopping nine degrees centigrade here in Glasgow this weekend. I'd swear it was still winter had the annual Uplay Spring Sale not kicked off this week, with…

Beast Master: Cat Cuddling In Far Cry Primal

There's a scene in the new Far Cry Primal [official site] trailer in which the player character instructs his pet owl to eat someone's face. It's amazing how inconsequential the lack of vehicles and rocket launchers seems now that the full extent of the animal-taming can be seen. Feed wild beasts and they can be tamed, which leads to big cat snuggling, guard bears and…

Far Cry Primal Info: Release Date, Screenshots, Trailers

Ubisoft attempted to announce Far Cry Primal [official site] with a tantalising livestream, which was rather spoiled by a brief leak of the game's name and basic details. Now we know more, including proper trailers, screenshots, and a release date... which will see the game land on PC the month after it'll arrive on console.

Far Cry Primal Trailer: Fight Mammoths With Spears

Update: There's now proper trailers and everything, embedded below, or hop to this post for Far Cry Primal's release date, screenshots, trailers and more. Viral marketing isn't entirely going Ubisoft's way lately, but at least having their own promotional rug for the next Far Cry pulled from under them by a loose-lipped IGN Turkey means exciting news rather than quizzical looks. Yep, the next Far…

Where DRMs Come True: Ubisoft Opening Theme Park

Haven't you always wanted to meet Sam Fisher and take home a photo of him pretending to snap your neck? Why not bungee from a Venetian rooftop into a haystack (don't worry, it's not real hay!)? Dare you ride a rollercoaster named Uplay? All these dreams and more may very well - let's say it: will almost definitely - come true, as Ubisoft have announced…

Far Cry 4 Meets Civilization V In Pagan Min Mod

Who'd win in a war: Pagan Min out Far Cry 4 or Gandhi? Sure, Min's great at murder and oppression and has a crack army and all that, but push Gandhi too far and nukes will fly. In Civilization V [official site], anyway. Custom civilisations are one of the more common Civ mod types, but I do like the look of a new mod adding…

Ubisoft Survey Reveals Potential Far Cry Locations

Psssst! You wanna hear some gossip? WELL! So, Eurogamer told me that some friends of theirs told THEM that a marketing research survey told them – the friends not Eurogamer – that they wanted to talk future Far Cry game settings. I *know*, right? Apparently the talk came in the form of a survey which asked players to make their preferences regarding potential settings such…

Ubisoft’s Assassinspology Free Games Are Live

If you're one of those whose bought Assassin's Creed: Unity's DLC Season Pass at launch, you're getting a big fat Sorry from Ubisoft whether you felt you needed it or not. They need your forgiveness. They burn for it. The publisher's apologies for Unity's many and various bugs and performance issues comprises a choice of one of the following: Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed: Black…

Why Aren’t Ubi Games On UK Steam? We Still Don’t Know

An odd phenomenon of the last month or so is the disappearance of Ubisoft's end-of-year gaming bonanza from the UK version of Steam. While Assassin's Creed: Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew are all available on the US and other international versions of Valve's blue-grey shop, in Her Majesty's The United Kingdom, they are conspicuously absent. The games can be bought, at surprisingly huge…

How To Skip Far Cry 4’s Unskippable Launch Animations

This seems like the sort of thing we need to be writing for every game of late. Where the narcissism of publishers sees them fail to allow the player to just skip past their opening vanity screens, and you frantically click and stab at every key, certain that they surely can't be this vain? Fortunately, the superb fun of Far Cry 4 can easily be…

Far Cry 4 Is Out And Some Other Quick Thoughts

I'm only a couple of hours into Far Cry 4 - we didn't receive any pre-release review code - and it is very Far Cry so far. In just that little play time I've scaled radio towers, ziplined down from radio towers, hang-glided off mountains, driven jeeps off mountains, delivered packages under a time limit, stabbed people in the throat with knives, shot people in…

In Case You Missed All Those Other Far Cry 4 Trailers

Perhaps you've missed Far Cry 4's hundreds of previous trailers, and want one single trailer which explains everything - the plot, the world, the characters, the weapons. Then I've got good news! Maybe you'd enjoy all of this information being delivered to you by an in-game radio host, for some reason. Then, oh wow, this eight-minute trailer was specifically made for you. That's weird.

New Ubi Games Vanish From Steam In More Countries

Update: "We are looking into it at the moment," an Ubisoft representative has told us about the later vanishings outside the UK. Meanwhile, two dear readers in Finland and Germany comment that the games have disappeared from Steam for them too. When Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Unity, The Crew, and Far Cry 4 all vanished from Steam in the UK earlier this week, the publisher made…

Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed, The Crew Not On Steam In UK

U-boo-soft, more like. It looks like the developer of Far Cry 4, The Crew and Assassin's Creed Unity won't be releasing any of those games through Steam in the UK. Speaking to PCGamesN, the publisher confirmed that they have been in discussions with Valve about Assassin's Creed Unity, "but for the time being the game is not available via Steam in the UK. In the…

Far Cry 4 Story Trailer Reminds You There’s A Story

The latest Far Cry 4 trailer explains the game's story, which is a good thing, because there's very little chance I'm going to pay attention to what's going on when I come round to actually playing it. "Do what you came here to do," one character implores. 'What, you mean you want me to wingsuit off of all these mountains and make rucksacks out of…

Elephant Man-Shooter: Far Cry 4 PvP

Far Cry 3 may not have been all things to all people, but it was many different things to many different people. For me, it was a game mostly about driving offroad and getting into various scrapes involving three-way battles between myself, a gathering of Komodo Dragons and a gang of gun-toting grunts. For some, it was a game in which they could hunt goats…

Far Cry 4 Kyrat Trailers: Not A Great Holiday Destination

As a brochure for a(n imaginary) place, these Far Cry 4 trailers aren't doing a great job of selling me on Kyrat. Sure it's got the natural beauty of snowy mountains, lush plains and ancient ruins but literally everything there is trying to kill you. There's animal attacks, rebels with mortors, mad dictators, spirit people, arena fights - for a (pretend) small Himalayan state they've sure…
