Rainbow Six Siege Expansion Aims To Squash Cheaters

On August 2nd, Rainbow Six Siege [official site] will introduce its next expansion DLC, Skull Rain, which introduces the usual two operators and a map. All that’s great, but what’s potentially better is a new anti-cheat system which will hopefully put ‘cuffs on the perps ruining this lovely game with their cheating ways.

Ubi’s For Honor Out Valentine’s Day, Gets Pair Of Trailers

If there’s one thing I really don’t like about E3, it’s the expo’s ability to make me feel old. “There’s no way that was announced a whole entire year ago,” is a phrase I’ve become accustomed to saying, and Ubisoft Montreal’s upcoming hack-n-slash murderfest For Honor [official site] is the latest game to make me do so. Why? Well it’s now got a release date and two new trailers 12 months on since its reveal. The first is a typically made-for-E3 story cinematic, and the second a more gameplay-y look at its single-player campaign with Vikings and samurai scrapping.

Watch Dogs 2’s E3 Gameplay Trailer Is Good Silly Fun

XTREME HACKING

Watch Dogs 2 [official site] looks like a modern-day video game reboot of the seminal Hackers and I can’t tell you how much I’m into that. Cocky young punks and ruffians free-running wild and listening to banging tunes while they stick it to The Man is right up my cyberstreet. It’s so over-the-top and that is why I adore it. It can’t be serious, can it? It can’t. I adore it. Look how much fun these scamps are having in the 11-minute first gameplay trailer!

Hack The Planet: Watch Dogs 2 Coming November 15th

Watch Dogs 2 [official site] will come out on November 15th, Ubisoft declared today, formally announcing the open-world crime simulator. It’s jetting off to the sunny San Francisco Bay Area and it… looks fun? Not simply fun-to-play fun, but actually having a sense of a fun, with colours and people who look like they’re having fun and no moody uncledads anywhere in sight. Here, jack into this announcement vid-o-rama:

Rainbow Six Siege Gets Discounted Starter Edition

Starter editions – concise versions of bigger games that sell for a fraction of the price – are all the rage these days. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege [official site] is the latest inline, so, instead of parting with £30/$50 of your hard-earned cash so as to sample the environmental destruction-heavy FPS that Adam really quite liked, why not consider dropping just £12/$15 on its Starter Edition? You’ve got until June 19 to do so.

Rainbow Six Siege’s Dust Line Update Bursts In

The big red button is, I assume, the primary benefit of working for a games studio. Each one has, I’m fairly certain, a huge red button they slam to send the signal to launch new games and updates. The fanciest studios have special buttons, I imagine is definitely true. Infinity Ward probably have a big red gun firing bullets at a ballistic gel monitor. Paradox’s button is likely in the red velvet seat of a throne, pressed by regal buttocks. CD Projekt RED surely chug a big red potion. And Ubisoft Montreal? I imagine they’ve detonated a big red wall to launch today’s big Rainbow Six Siege [official site] update.

Breach & Breach & Breach & Clear: R6 Siege’s Buck Buff

While Rainbow Six Siege [official site] may not be as serious a tactical shooter as some want, I did idly dream of an even less serious version playing up its destructible levels, with gunmen leaping through walls as if they were rice paper and stamping down through floors. I wouldn’t want Siege to become that game, but I am tickled by the latest patch putting one character slightly closer to that. Here, come see how Buck can now saunter through wall after wall with his mega-buffed wall-smashing shotgun.
