Wipe those tears away: Far Cry 5 released

After years of gallivanting around the world, Far Cry today settles down for a quiet life in small-town America. Far Cry 5 launched in the wee hours, the latest in Ubisoft's open-world sandbox shooter. This time, the mince plot is about saving Hope County in Montana from a naughty cult by wandering, driving, flying, swinging, and wingsuiting around while shooting faces and catching fish. We…

Star Trek: Bridge Crew adds voice control

Bossy captains can now order their crew about simply by shouting in Star Trek: Bridge Crew [official site]. No, I know that's how the VR spaceship-commanding game already how it works in multiplayer, but this is in singleplayer. Ubisoft have rolled in IBM Watson's voice-recognition technology, which means AI-controlled crewmates can follow orders you holler. Voice control in games is usually a bit wonky but,…

Star Trek: Bridge Crew drops out of hyperspace

Virtual reality Kessel Run 'em up Star Trek: Bridge Crew [official site] has dropped out of hyperspace and into cybergoggles. It lets players pop on their goggs to serve as crew aboard an Empire starship, each taking control of one specific bridge station and hopefully not totally botching it. It's a bit like Artemis but less serious or Spaceteam but less silly. You can also…

VR-o-rama: Ubi Date Star Trek, Eagle Flight, Werewolf

While most big publishers are being conservative about the latest virtual reality fad - unsurprising, given that cybergoggles can cost you eight hundred chuffing quid - Ubisoft are diving right into the cyberpool. Ubi already making eight-player VR games, which seems a touch optimistic. But hey, you need games to spread hardware, so points for effort! Today Ubi announced release dates across October, November, and…

Boldly Going Into More Detail On Star Trek: Bridge Crew

Star Trek: Bridge Crew [official site] was one of the games which caught my eye this E3. It basically looked like Artemis Bridge Simulator in VR and I figured that would be really fun. Also Levar Burton was on my screen being enthusiastic about things and that's always infectious. Well played, Burton. But then I was a bit hazy about the specifics (because: wine) and…

Tom Clancy’s The Division Forming Up To Fall Out In March

Following recent word of a delay for Tom Clancy's The Division [official site], Ubisoft used their E3 event to give it a new release date: March 8th, 2016. Ubi also showed off a bit of the mostly-co-op shooter's player vs. player action. It goes down in an area called the Dark Zone (imaginative), where you can find fancy loot if you venture in but run…

Divided: Tom Clancy’s The Division Delayed Into 2016

Oh, for goodness' sake! Only the other day I was wondering what had been going on with Tom Clancy's The Division [official site], and whether the co-op- action-RPG shooter had been delayed or what. Ubisoft could've slipped in mention of a delay alongside the news that a fourth studio had joined development but no, no, they have to have their nice, clean, tidy 'message'. And…

United: Another Studio Joins Tom Clancy’s The Division

Ooh! Did you hear that? Just now, carried on the wind. It sounded like... clearly scripted banter from an Ubisoft gameplay demonstration. We've barely heard from Tom Clancy's The Division [official site] since its showing at E3 last year, and I'd half-wondered if it might be mired in development hell. It'd been delayed once before, and was awfully quiet for a game supposedly due this…
