Hyper Scape, Ubisoft’s frenetic take on battle royale, is now streaming on Twitch

After a week of mysterious tweets and a fake company website, Ubisoft have entered the battle royale ring with Hyper Scape. A "Technical Test" for the surprise BR landed in the hands of select streamers earlier today, with half a million viewers already tuning in to have a gander at Ubi's hectic urban battlefield - and to get their hands on the closed test themselves…

Eivor will lay down the bants in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s traditional Viking rap battles

Will the real Medieval History majors please stand up? Ubisoft previously tossed out a tidbit on "viking rap battles" that will make an appearance in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Creative director Ashraf Ismail has popped up to say a bit more about how these historically-inspired showdowns will take place in Valhalla. Apparently flyting (or fliting), as it was called by anglo-saxon and norse folks, was like, a…

Feature: Everything we know about Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date, gameplay, and trailers

This past week has revealed a little more information about Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Even though we've yet to have had a proper "gameplay" trailer, we know a fair amount about the Viking Assassin's Creed thanks what has been uncovered in interviews.

Apparently Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be bigger than Odyssey, actually

Forget review scores. The only true way to judge a game's quality is the converted square kilometers of its virtual world. Or so you'd think, with how big a talking point it is during the marketing campaign for every big open-world adventure. For a minute there, it sounded like Assassin's Creed Valhalla would actually be smaller that its enormous predecessor Odyssey. Not so, says a…

Feature: Everything we know about Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date, gameplay, and trailers

Assassin's Creed Valhalla may have had a "first look gameplay" trailer, but it didn't really show us much. In fact, we know more about the Viking Assassin's Creed from what has been uncovered in interviews than anything else and there's a lot of information to unpack.

Feature: When life gives you in-engine lemons

The best bits from the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla no-gameplay gameplay trailer

I would not characterise Assassin's Creed Valhalla's new gameplay trailer as being chock full of gameplay. Being real: it is clearly mostly cinematic sequences made in the game engine, i.e. they are all scenes that we may encounter during the course of playing the game, and on that basis we can't have 'em under the Trades Description Act. But I couldn't spot a hot second…

All the PC news from Microsoft’s Xbox Series X showcase

Did you miss today's Xbox Series X stream? While the first of Microsoft's many planned streams for their new machine was naturally concerned with their new tellybox, there were still enough multi-platform announcements and trailers going around for us PC folks to get excited over. Here's our rundown of what happened during today's showcase.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s first gameplay trailer is here

Ubisoft just dropped the first "gameplay trailer" for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, showing us a more of their upcoming game about Vikings keen to slit throats as much as split skulls. It's a gameplay trailer not a gameplay video, unsurprisingly, so we're still waiting for an actual look at the game in action. But if you enjoy cutscenes and seeing stabbings, axings, battering-rammings, and arrowings, oh…

Try not to get squished by falling safes in Rainbow Six Siege’s new event mode

A new event started in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege yesterday, introducing The Stolen Goods, a limited time game mode where players have to attack or defend a 1920s British mobster hideout full of safes. There are a few twists to this new mode, but the important one to know right now is that the floors are completely breakable, allowing players to shoot out the…

Rainbow Six Siege’s Grand Larceny event invites you to an old-timey British heist

For the next two weeks, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is swapping out hostages and bombs for safeboxes full of… well it doesn't actually say what they're full of. I imagine it's money, or gold, or something that old-timey English gangsters like, because it's all part of the Grand Larceny event, inspired by 1920s British mobs. Ubisoft have reimagined the old Hereford map to create…

Feature: 100 cowboy sized vikings or one viking sized cowboy?

My favourite Viking cowboy YouTuber is working on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

In his Twitter bio, Dr. Jackson Crawford describes himself as "like if you crossed a viking and a cowboy, but got all recessive traits". Being a cross between a cowboy and a Viking makes Dr. Crawford frontrunner in the race to be a real life version of what five-year-olds say they want to be when they grow up. And now he can add "works on…

Here’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s female lead

While the Assaassin's Creed Valhalla debut cinematic trailer yesterday focused on the male option for our Viking lead, Eivor, Ubisoft did give several peeks at the female Eivor. Like with Odyssey before it, Valhalla will give us a choice to play a male or female character and both look quite willing and able to split skulls. The most obvious look at her is the figurine…

Behold this horrific new pizza skin for Mozzie in Rainbow Six Siege

There's something very unnerving about anthropomorphic food. Which is why I'm concerned that Pizza Mozzie will now haunt my dreams forever. Rainbow Six Siege has a brand new Operator set available through Twitch Prime you see - I had to look at it, so now you do too."The Cheesie One has arrived!" Ubisoft tweeted. As if the skin itself wasn't terrifying enough, they're acting like…

Rainbow Six Siege starts Operation Void Edge today

Two new doorkickers arrive in Rainbow Six Siege today with the start of Year 5 and Operation Void Edge. Iana can deploy a remote-controlled holographic duplicate of herself, while Oryx eschews fancy technology to just run around real fast to bowling over opponents and bashing through walls with his burly body. The update also brings a reworked version of the map Oregon, balance changes, and…

Ubisoft’s Roller Champions is getting a closed alpha next week

Remember Roller Champions? It was, by far, one of the coolest games announced at E3 last year, and now Ubisoft have organised a closed alpha on PC starting next Wednesday to give players a chance to check it out. Roller Champions is basically a 3v3 roller derby with some basketball thrown in, and it looks so colourful and different to a lot of the other…

Rainbow Six Siege’s fifth and sixth years will see reworks to loads of existing maps and operators

The Rainbow Six Siege Invitational took place over the weekend, teasing loads of new content and changes coming up in the next two years. Year 5 will see six new operators make their way to the game, as well as reworks to four old maps, while Year 6 is bringing reworks across the board for maps and gameplay alike. We're not completely in the dark…

Operation: Void Edge operators crash the Rainbow 6 test server tomorrow

Rainbow Six Siege is all about mind games. Baiting out attackers, creating false lines of attack, making sure the bad guys step into your crosshairs before you wander into theirs. Operation Void Edge's two new Operators hit the public test server tomorrow, and approach deceptive play with two radically different visions. One of them will trick you into seeing ghosts, and the other will have…

For Honor’s “Year of Reckoning” picks up a battle pass, hints at peace

I've not kept up with the plot of For Honor, a game where buff lads and lasses chop each other's limbs off with elaborate pointy sticks. But as Ubisoft's brawny fighter enters its fourth year, they're putting down the swords - if only for a little while. While Year 4 might be the "Year of Reckoning", Season 1 is entitled "Hope", and sees all three…
