Roller Champions should skate out next year

When Ubisoft announced Roller Champions with great fanfare and a public alpha test at E3 2019 but only a few months later announced a delay and went a bit quiet, I thought it might join the ranks of their many seemingly-dead games. But those forgotten games are on: Gods & Monsters is due in December (even if it has a daft new name), the space…

Far Cry 3 is spawning a VR game for cyberarcades

Y'know that X-Files episode where Mulder and Scully wear cybervests and jack into VR to fight a cyberbabe? What if that, but Far Cry 3? I am thrilled to tell that Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity is what, a new game coming to a type of VR arcade where you and your pals strap on cybergoggles and cyberarmour and hold cyberguns and run around…

With the front doors opening later this month, The Summit presents you and your pals with a daunting 100-storey deathtrap of office desks and heavy firearms to test yourself against.

Ubisoft VR space game AGOS looks awfully familiar, from Watch Dogs 2

Ubisoft today announced AGOS: A Game Of Space, a VR game which... hang on, why do I feel like I've seen this before? AGOS will put players in the silicon of an AI overseeing a colony ship, exploring, gathering, trading, and upgrading to complete the mission of finding a new home in the stars. And it looks familiar because one Watch Dogs 2 mission had…

Massive multiplayer stunt ’em up Riders Republic flips out next year

If you pull of a flip and nobody's around to see it, is it even really gnarly? Fortunately, that won't be a problem in Riders Republic, a whopping great extreme sports romp announced during tonight's Ubisoft Forward showcase - one that plans to set you and up to 49 other bikers, boarders, and wingsuited adrenaline junkies loose on a mountain valley to prove, once and…

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.

Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game is playing an encore this Winter

It's 2010, Michael Cera is playing a bass guitar, and every guy your age is wearing that Plumtree top. It's peak Pilgrim, baby, which means you're probably playing Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game. Four years later, and the banger of a beat 'em up will be impossible to play. Six agonising years after that, at a Ubisoft Forward event one September eve, the…

Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake announced

Ubisoft today announced they're remaking Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, 2003's fun action-platformer about a wall-running lad with a magical time-rewinding dagger. Seems they're winding time forwards on the game, fully redoing art, getting folks into motion capture suits for new animations, and even getting the Prince's original actor back in for a new performance. It's coming in January under the imaginative name…

A new season just snuck up on Rainbow Six: Siege

Huh! Out of nowhere, a massive, unannounced update just skulked its way into Rainbow Six: Siege. Fittingly, it's the one wot's adding Splinter Cell sneaky-boy Sam Fisher to the Clanceyverse team shooter. Operation Shadow Legacy is now live seemingly ahead of its own announcement, adding a new operator, map and scope reworks, and a whole host of smaller fixes. Just give us a heads up…

Ubisoft say Skull & Bones is “in full swing with a new vision”

Three years after announcing Skull & Bones with an initial squall of previews, Ubisoft still don't have much to say about the pirate ship game which was once due in 2018. Don't expect to see it during tonight's Ubisoft Forward announce-o-rama stream or even this year, Ubi have now said, but they do assure that production is "in full swing with a new vision". Last…

Another Ubisoft Forward showcase stream is coming

A fair few games in recent E3 showcases were conspicuously absent from today's Ubisoft Forward stream: no Beyond Good & Evil 2, no Rainbow Six Quarantine, no Gods & Monsters, no Roller Champions, no Skull & Bones. And yet they found time to announce Far Cry 6. Given that they've all been delayed for extra work before, maybe they're pushed far enough into the future…

Ubisoft battle royale Hyper Scape is now open for everyone to try

Ubisoft's free-to-play battle royale FPS Hyper Scape today launched into open beta, after a short closed beta with invitations handed out on Twitch. As the genre goes, 100 players are running around a big map looting and shooting. Hyper Scape is pretty zippy as battle royales go, mind, with players bouncing from streets to rooftops and zipping about with special abilities. If you were curious…

Far Cry 6 announced for realsies, coming in February 2021

Following a little leak this week, Ubisoft today formally announced Far Cry 6. The open-world FPS series is headed to the fictional tropical paradise of Yara, which is now in the grip of a dictator (played by Giancarlo Esposito off Breaking Bad) and his son. As the series winds on, I'm increasingly convinced a little family therapy could avoid a whole lot of murder. But…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch on November 17th

Ubisoft today announced a November 17th release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the next in their open-world murder simulator series. The date leaked yesterday but shh. And pretending that we haven't been watching great reams of leaked Valhalla gameplay all week, they very proudly released a video showing and explaining more of the game. I suppose it'd be polite to act surprised by revelations of…

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…
