Ubisoft subscription service coming to Stadia and Amazon Luna

Everyone just wants to be involved with cloud gaming at the moment, don't they? Ubisoft have announced they're rebranding their UPlay+ subscription service to Ubisoft+, and they're whacking it on Amazon Luna on November 10th, then Google Stadia later in the year. For PC folks the service isn't changing much from what you might've been used to with UPlay+. It costs £13/$15, you'll have access…

Feature: Hackneyed

Watch Dogs Legion review

Diane Ganguly is a totally ordinary Londoner; one of the nine million NPCs who put the “Legion” in Watch Dogs Legion, since they can all be recruited and made playable. She’s a talent agent in her early thirties, with a pet owl, an anti-immigration voting record, and a history of going to furry conventions. As I said, totally ordinary. Until now, that is. Underground hacker…

Feature: More like palace of WestMONSTER eh?

Watch Dogs Legion has a mission where you make Big Ben bong again

Watch Dogs Legion, aka Watch Dogs London, is nearly upon us. See its release, there, squatting at the end of October 2020 like a big cockernee pumpkin smoking a cigar. I am broadly looking forward to Ubisoft's hacktion adventure where you can play as anyone by recruiting any NPC you see into your gang of hacktivists with undercuts, because from the hands on previews I've…

They've also got dedicated requirements for what you're going to need to take advantage of the game's ray tracing support, too, both…

Watch Dogs: Legion DLC will bring back Aiden Pearce, still wearing his iconic cap

To the delight of perhaps as many as seven people, Ubisoft today announced that Watch_Underscore_Dogs protagonist Aiden "The Fox" Pearce will come to Watch Dogs: Legion in DLC. Six years after the first game, he's still wearing his stupid coat and "iconic" cap as he visits London for surly business. He's not even washed the cap.

Cyberpunk 2077 and COD Cold War’s new ray tracing trailers make me long for darkness

Hot off the heels of last night's Nvidia Ampere reveal, we also got new ray tracing trailers for Cyberpunk 2077, Minecraft, Watch Dogs Legion, and the newly announced Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. I've collected them altogether below, but the Cyberpunk 2077 one is particularly shiny, if only because it's a new "max settings 4K trailer" showing CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG at…

Nvidia’s RTX 3000 GPUs will come with Watch Dogs Legion and a year of GeForce Now for free

If the comparatively low prices of the new Nvidia Ampere RTX 3000 graphics cards weren't already enough to tempt you into upgrading your GPU this year, then Nvidia's freshly-announced RTX 3000 bundle will no doubt sweeten the deal further. I mean, RTX 2080 Ti-level performance for £469 / $499 on the RTX 3070 is already a tantalising proposition, I must admit, but anyone who buys…

Watch Dogs Legion will let you recruit a deadly beekeeper

It seems like one of the best parts of Watch Dogs Legion's whole "play as anyone" thing will be all the wacky different kinds of NPCs you're able to sign on. In a new video, Ubisoft show off a recruitment mission in which DedSec agents help out a beekeeper. Why the heck would you want a beekeeper on your squad? They can shoot out a…

The next Ubisoft Forward showcase is coming in September

Don't look now, FakE3 isn't over just yet. We've still got the next Xbox event tomorrow and yet another Ubisoft Forward too. The latter, it turns out, will be coming in September. The news came during Ubisoft's quarterly earnings call. At what point do we stop calling it unofficial E3 and just admit we've bled into holiday reveals season? Never? Ah, swell.

Feature: A-hoo! Hackers of London!

Preview: a year on, Watch Dogs Legion’s “play as anyone” is so crazy it might just work

I don't go round singing "Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner!" or anything, but out of all the places I've lived so far, London is the one I think of as home. And this so happens to be the setting for hacktion-adventure game Watch Dogs Legion, which is definitely not called Watch Dogs London despite how often I accidentally say that. It's a dystopian near-future…

Watch Dogs: Legion launching on October 29th

Ubisoft today announced an October 29th release date for Watch Dogs: Legion and introduced a few of the potential stars in new videos. Legion hops over the proverbial pond to focus on DedSec operatives in London fighting The Man by hacking the oeuvre of David Mamet [the planet -rhyming slang ed.], and this time we can play all sorts of different people by recruiting NPCs…

A new teaser trailer hints at which games we'll see during their upcoming Ubisoft Forward showcase on Sunday, July 12th. You probably won't be surprised by the names if you've kept up with this year's not-E3 but hey, here's your confirmation.

Ubisoft will host their digital showcase Ubisoft Forward on July 12th

Hear ye! Hear ye! Ubisoft have announced E3 part 25: Ubisoft Forward to occur on July 12th, 2020. That's all you need to know, right? Naw, alright fine.As we know, E3 was cancelled because of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. June's fast approaching though, so publishers and developers who would've been up on stages saying pretty words like "the next decade of gaming" are now detailing…

Watch Dog Legion’s creative director was interviewed by the BBC inside the game’s virtual Piccadilly Circus

For a very extra interview, BBC reporter Mark Cieslak got all mo-cap suited up to have a conversation inside Watch Dogs Legion's virtual city of London with the game's creative director, Clint Hocking (you know, instead of using Discord or some sort of in-game chat function). This isn't the sort of "oh look at our cool tech" interview that I expected however, as the pair…

Ubisoft’s revamped editorial board want to stop stagnation in their games

Pop quiz, readers. If I say Ubisoft, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Massive, systemic open worlds? Towers wot you climb to unlock the map? Extensive skills trees and an apolitical approach to politically charged themes? France? For the last 20 years, everything that makes a Ubisoft game tick has been decided by a Paris-based editorial board. As it happens, having a select…

Feature: 2020 vision

2020’s most exciting new PC games

Over the break we had a chance to do some serious scientific study of this business we call games, and it turns out that games are actually good. 2020 in particular has a healthy mix of big budget bonanzas and smaller indie plates to suit everyone's discerning tastes. And, as you know, the RPS treehouse is the most discerning, so to make it easier for…

Feature: I have seen as much of life as the world can show

Watch Dogs Legion’s version of London is surprisingly accurate

As was observed by some guy who used to work here (RPS in peace), it's really weird when bits of the UK turn up in games in an authentic way. Which is to say, in a way that isn't over-the-top Victoriana Steampunk. I say I say. Tea and crumpets. (Not that I don't like crumpets, or drink an amount of tea that means I get…

Feature: Every Stadia game coming at launch and beyond

Every Google Stadia game announced so far

Google held another one of their Stadia Connect conferences today, and this one was meant to be all about what games you'll be playing in the "scary" cloud come November. Sure enough, there were new Stadia games aplenty announced this evening, with the biggest addition being Cyberpunk 2077.To help keep track of them all, here's a list of every Google Stadia game confirmed so far,…
