Rainbow Six Siege teases Operation Grim Sky and its upcoming Operators

Tactical wall-smasher Rainbow Six Siege is going stereotypically British for its next update. Not only is the Hereford Base map getting a makover, complete with "high chance of rain", Operation Grim Sky brings us a London cop Defender to play as. Presumably because our island is so underwhelming, they'be balancing out all the rain and gloom with an American Attacker, fresh from the dusty streets of…

Clickuorice Allsorts: Getting mugged in For Honor

UBISOFT: Soldiers! For Honor is not a game. It is a quest for medieval prowess. You will spend hours honing your swordsmanship, weeks sharpening your wits. Only the most ferocious survive in this ahistorical spike pit of combat, a land torn asunder, soaked in flame and dread and ash. You will train for months, tempering yourself in this sharp-edged gauntlet. You will dodge, limp, parry…

Star Trek: Bridge Crew has boldly gone back to The Next Generation

Originally released as a VR-exclusive game, Star Trek: Bridge Crew not-so-boldly went back to the mainstream back in December, opening its universe of co-op online Star Trek roleplaying to those with more traditional controllers. Now it's recapturing 90s nostalgia in a new expansion released yesterday (and back in May for PS4). Star Trek: Bridge Crew - The Next Generation is now available whether or not…

Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars guide and Hurk’s body parts locations

While Far Cry 5 was a much more rooted campaign, Lost on Mars ramps things up to a space adventure, romping around Mars and shooting some arachnid aliens. Showing Ubisoft's sillier side once again, this may not be the most complex DLC ever produced - or the best, if John's review is anything to go by - but if you decide to play there are…

Far Cry 5 – Lost On Mars review

Far Cry 5 continues Ubisoft's on-paper rather charming habit of adding DLC to its games that completely transforms them into something else. Vietnam-themed Hours Of Darkness rather passed us by, but Lost On Mars joined us last week so I thought I'd take a look. It's... it's really bloody awful.

Rainbow Six Siege now auto-bans players for bigotry

We've known for a while that Ubisoft have been trying to curb toxicity in Rainbow Six Siege, but their latest phase in their war against awful people brightened up my weekend. The popular tactical FPS now automatically and immediately issues short-term bans for racist and homophobic slurs in text-chat.

Far Cry 5 battles spiders from Mars (sans Bowie) July 17

Good news: We're getting away from Far Cry 5's daft cults to battle alien spiders on Mars using zappy laser weapons. Bad news: Far Cry's increasingly tedious Hurk is coming along for the ride. Ah well, you can't win them all. Next week, Far Cry 5 receives its second (and perhaps most interesting) piece of DLC from its season pass. Lost On Mars is enough of…

You can solo run The Division 2 from start to finish

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is not a political game. We've heard this from Ubisoft, who insists that their title about an uprising set in Washington D.C. will avoid being political. No politics... in Washington D.C. and that's final. Sorry, I guess all of my coverage of the game needs to start with me shaking this scaldingly mild take off, like a wet dog covered…

Feature: Always-off

Trying, and failing, to find the multiplayer in The Crew 2

My plan was to tell you all about The Crew 2's multiplayer. Last week I reviewed it as a single-player game, because the servers had yet to be populated, and indeed because I at no point encountered any option to actually take part in any. Despite being an 'always on' game, that immediately disconnects you from playing should your internet connection drop, and logs you…

Flash! Bang! Wallop! Far Cry 5 adds photo mode today

Lay down your guns and pick up a lens. Stop shooting faces and start shooting landscapes. Look away from that sniper scope to peer down a telephoto zoom. Stop murdering, you chuffing rotters, I'm saying, or at least take better screenshots. A free update for Far Cry 5 today adds a 'Photo Mode', letting would-be war photographers pause the game and be whisked away to…

The Division 2 is a sunny but familiar run ‘n’ gun

It seems like more of the same. To say this of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 might make you fire your rifle into the air and shout “yeehaw” but it’s more likely to make you shrug. ‘Ubisoft sequel marginally different from previous game’ is not exactly a surprising headline, I’ll admit, but it’s all I’ve got based on the 15 minutes of footwork and firefights…

Trials Rising’s tandem bike is a thing of ragdoll splendour

Trials Rising may be conforming to the series’ usual style, as well as the law of videogame subtitles (Trials Origins and Trials Legends have yet to be announced) but it is adding one wonderful new feature: tandem motorbike muckabouts. In this local two-player mode, each player controls half the throttle, and each makes up half the weight on the bike. Like any Trials game, you…

The Crew 2 is out now, but unplayable for some on Steam [fixed]

Update: Ubisoft say the Steam problem is now fixed. Affected people may need to restart the Steam client but then it should work. Ubisoft's open-world online drive-o-fly-a-boaty racer The Crew 2 launched in the wee hours and... a great many people cannot play it at all. The Steam version is currently busted (perhaps just for for folks who pre-ordered?), as attempts to launch the game…

The Division 2: everything we know, release date, trailers

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 showing at E3 2018 was uncommonly detailed. We saw more of the game's Washington, DC setting, we were given details of the new high-level classes, and introduced to the brand new raids. Below you'll find everything you need to know about the game, plus any news of its announced release date and what players can expect based from the various…

The Crew 2 as a single-player game review

The Crew 2 is out proper tomorrow, at which point its servers will probably collapse for a bit, then eventually get stable as players fill up the vast amount of empty space in this miniaturised rendition of the United States. Meanwhile, I've been playing it this week to experience its vast amount of solo content, which is undeniably the focus of the game's core progression.…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

Kassandra is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s main hero, but only in the book

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will let us play as either Kassandra or Alexios, both Spartan warriors, but creative director Jonathan Dumont told Reddit that it’s the former who is considered the canon protagonist, at least in the upcoming official novelisation. It won’t affect the game, however, as whoever you play as will be treated as the one, true hero. The game's marketing, however, seems altogether Alexios-inclined...

Ubisoft has tried to fill Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with real Greek voices

Ubisoft has tried to fill Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which is set in 5th century BC Greece, with as many Greek actors as possible. This, of course, sounds like common sense, but it’s lamentably worthy of note in an industry that’s often dominated by Americans, regardless of the setting.

HitRecord’s claim that it’s community collaboration, not spec work for Beyond Good & Evil 2 rings hollow

There's a dark cloud looming over Ubisoft's Beyond Good and Evil 2, and I'm not just talking about the one in the stunning E3 trailer. Alongside a lot of good things at the E3 showing of the game was a section on how Joseph Gordon-Levitt's HitRecord was going to be handling the inclusion of community-created art and assets for the game. While creators will be paid…
