Valve on Assassin’s Creed, Notre Dame and “positive” review bombing

When Valve implemented Steam's anti-review-bombing policy in March - manual exclusion of "off topic" review clusters from a game's overall score - they'd not given much thought to what a 'positive' review bomb could look like. Just one month later, Notre Dame cathedral goes up in holy smoke and Ubisoft bring in a flood of positive press (and reviews) for Assassin's Creed Unity through a…

The Division 2 best builds – Nemesis PVP build, LMG PVE build

With Raids being introduced in The Division 2, you'll want the best gear on you to survive them, as well as ones for the Occupied Dark Zones, or any of the other PVP/PVE stuff in the game. Plenty of decent builds have cropped up around the internet since release and our aim is to give you the best ones to put into one place.

The Division 2 Exotic weapons locations – Nemesis Exotic Rifle, Hyena Key locations

New weapons were bound to come into The Division 2 eventually and one of the best, if most elusive has to be the Nemesis Sniper Rifle. But how do you get it? These legendary guns are hard to come by and might not seem like much at first, but with proper care and use they are easily some of the very best death-dealing machines in…

Feature: Stats galore

The Division 2 weapons/guns – damage stats, The Division 2 best weapons, Exotic weapons list

Some have called The Division 2 one of the loot-n-shooter genre's very best titles, and - whether or not you agree - much of this success is down to the tight gunplay and diverse arsenal of guns and weapons to choose from. As you stalk the streets of Washington D.C., you know at all times that you're only as good as the two primary weapons…

Winter sports sandbox Steep is free to keep this week

Ubisoft's open world winter sports sandbox (snowbox?) Steep is the publisher's latest giveaway. Available to snag and keep forever between now and Tuesday, May 21st, it features skiing, snowboarding, wingsuit diving and paragliding - four fun ways to hurl yourself down a mountain without dying. While sadly not coming with its copious collection of DLC, it is, per Ubisoft standard, still more than enough to…

The Division 2 launches first 8-player raid May 16th

After a few delays to tweak and tune the base game, Ubisoft are just about ready to roll out Operation Dark Hours, the first eight-player raid for The Division 2. Players will need to have climbed to the tippy top of the game's progression ladder (Level 30, World Tier 5, Gear Score 490) to start the mission, which begins at the helipad at the White…

Ghost Recon Breakpoint announced, a less morally shaky sequel to Wildlands

A fictional Pacific archipelago, a mega-corporation and an army of killbot-assisted high-tech mercs. Ghost Recon Breakpoint, announced today and out on October 4th, looks largely like we expected from Ubisoft's leak last night. A sequel to sandbox shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands, trading the ethically sketchy 'US covert ops fighting the drug war' setting for a more videogamey near-future scenario. As with its predecessor, it's a…

Rainbow Six Siege now punishing team-killers with their own bullets

After a couple months of test-server experimentation, Ubisoft are rolling out their new team-killer punishment to Rainbow Six Siege proper. While the studio confirm that today's iteration of "Reverse Friendly Fire" (RFF) is still to be refined and has a couple bugs still to be hammered out, it's ready enough for the big leagues. In short, if you shoot a teammate, they can choose whether…

Feature: The real trial was the squirrels we made along the way

The Joy Of exploring and dying in Trials Rising

Even as a kid, I always had a fascination with death. It’s manifested in a number of different ways over the years. From learning various mythologies to get a grasp on their take on the afterlife, to reading mystery novels that taught me hundreds of impractical ways to nearly get away with murder, most of my hobbies involved death in some form. So, it's not…

Alleged Ghost Recon Breakpoint details leaked, out October 4th

Ubisoft's attempts to drum up hype for a Ghost Recon announcement tomorrow have been a tad undermined by their own store back-end, revealing the game's title: Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Pre-order details for a collector's edition of the game were snapped and posted on Reddit, although have since been removed. If the leak is accurate, then Breakpoint will continue the story started by the latest Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC mission,…

I love you, giant women of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC

I have mentioned before how much I love the big buff mercenary gal of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Kassandra. She is a holy terror and can crush anyone who steps to her, like a toddler squeezing play dough in their fist until it all squishes out the sides between their fingers. Kassandra stands a full head taller than most regular citizens of Greece, because she is…

Starlink: Battle For Atlas makes its digital debut on PC

It's late to the party, but Starlink: The Battle For Atlas is out now on PC, Ubisoft's open-world space shooter. Originally part of a Skylanders-style collectable-toys-as-games push by the studio, the little modular spaceships failed to fly off the shelves. Fortunately, Ubisoft have pivoted and relaunched the game today. Console folks get a big free expansion, and we get the shiniest, smoothest version of the…

Starlink: Battle For Atlas makes a surprise landing on PC next week

Starlink: Battle For Atlas, Ubisoft's collectable toys-to-games platform launches on PC on Tuesday, April 30th, minus the toys part. It seems that the plastic, while nice to look at, just wasn't selling so well, but Ubisoft don't leave games behind these days. The PC launch coincides with a soft re-launch for the game on consoles, too, and a free, digital-only expansion called Crimson Moon. Having…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis is out now

Gorgeous as the Greek isles were, it's nice see some fresh scenery, and today's Assassin's Creed Odyssey DLC, The Fields Of Elysium (episode one of the three-part Fate Of Atlantis) looks stunning, if a little unsafe. Continuing the techno-mystical B-plot of the series, it's taking players into Atlantis, and from there into the Fields Of Elysium, the nicest place to be in the Greek afterlife.…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

The Assassin's Creed series has always been a tough nut to crack on PC. The latest Ancient Greek-themed instalment, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, may be slightly easier to run than its Egyptian predecessor, Assassin's Creed Oranges, but there are still times when it can feel like it's delivering a great big Spartan kick-sized strain on your trusty GPU. Fortunately, I'm here to help, as I've been…

The Division 2 launches Public Test Server and delays raid until May

Those hoping to dive into Operation Dark Hours, the first eight-player raid mission in The Division 2 will have to settle for grinding more invaded missions next week. Massive announced earlier today that they're delaying Title Update 3.0 from April 25th to an indeterminate point in May, giving them a little longer to tweak and tune balance on the just-launched Public Test Server. They also outlined…

Feature: Siege war: fair

Has Rainbow Six Siege been improved by its updates — 2019 edition

Of course the Australian has his own spiders. New playable character Mozzie arrived into Rainbow Six Siege last month packing an Aussie accent and three “Pest” robots: little multi-limbed minibeasties capable of automatically leaping onto, and taking control of, the attacking team’s reconnaissance drones. Plop them down in doorways and vent exits, and there’s a good chance you’ll be able to blunt the opposing team’s…

Assassin’s Creed Unity goes free in honour of Notre-Dame

Notre-Dame cathedral is closed for renovation for the foreseeable future, but Ubisoft are offering everyone the opportunity to appreciate it (and clamber around it) free in Assassin's Creed Unity. From now until next Thursday, April 25th, the game is free to grab and keep forever here. Set in Paris, 1789, it offers a more co-op focused spin on the series, but was plagued by bugs…

Anno 1800 review

After playing through Anno 1800’s early game a few times (I’m one of those ghastly bastards who tends to compulsively restart if things aren’t going exactly my way), I started writing a very different article to the one you are now reading. The issue was, I hadn’t realised I was playing the early game at all. I had the feeling I’d seen the lion’s share…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis takes us beyond Greece next week

The first chunk of DLC for Assassin's Creed Odyssey had some decent enough missions, but didn't really justify Ubisoft's entire season pass. The second half - The Fate Of Atlantis - looks like it's going to be a far more interesting adventure. Launching next week, April 23rd, it reminds me a lot of the underworld-delving second expansion for AC: Origins. It seems there's a bit…
