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…

5 games that prove friendship is better and more interesting than romance

"Is it friendship? Or is it something more?" goes a common sentiment, particularly on days like today, when we celebrate the anniversary of Captain Cook getting stabbed to death. Well, that's a stupid question, because there is nothing more than friendship. Games are, for once, not much worse than other media at depicting and exploring themes of friendship. In fact, some of the best stories…

Rainbow Six Siege is introducing a human wrecking-ball and a lunar ghost

It's a romantic tale as old as time. He's on the run, smashing through walls with his beefcake physique. She's in space and might be a ghost. Can I make it any more obvious? Rainbow Six Siege is preparing to take off with its first Season of the new year. Making its teaser debut today, Operation Void's Edge is taking Ubisoft's shooter high into orbit,…

This expansion kicks off…

The Division 2 is bringing the heat to New York City later this month

Who wants to be in D.C., anyway? Forget the politics, Forget the media buzz. The Division 2 has had enough, ditching the capitol for a two-mission trip to New York City's Coney Island. See the sights, ride the rights, and extrajudicially murder a riverboat's worth of masked mercenaries. Episode 3 is sending agents off to the fair later this month, to finally see about curing…

Terminators started wreaking havoc in Ghost Recon Breakpoint today

From today until February 6th, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is having an edgy-looking Terminator event, with two brand new free missions and a bunch of exclusive items to earn for taking out those pesky T-800s. Because it wasn't weird enough that Predator already exists in the Ghost Recon universe. In a scenario that sounds suspiciously familiar, a woman has appeared claiming to be from the future,…

Might & Magic: Chess Royale review

I'm used to autobattlers giving me a headache. They're a swirl of intense decision-making - puzzle boxes you've got to pry open and reassemble, while your opponents do the same thing. My first dozen hours with Teamfight Tactics and Dota Underlords were painful, but rewarding. I remember hacking away at an edifice of shifting understanding, slowly mastering the nuances of gold and wizard management. It…

Watch Dog Legion’s creative director was interviewed by the BBC inside the game’s virtual Piccadilly Circus

For a very extra interview, BBC reporter Mark Cieslak got all mo-cap suited up to have a conversation inside Watch Dogs Legion's virtual city of London with the game's creative director, Clint Hocking (you know, instead of using Discord or some sort of in-game chat function). This isn't the sort of "oh look at our cool tech" interview that I expected however, as the pair…

Ubisoft’s revamped editorial board want to stop stagnation in their games

Pop quiz, readers. If I say Ubisoft, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Massive, systemic open worlds? Towers wot you climb to unlock the map? Extensive skills trees and an apolitical approach to politically charged themes? France? For the last 20 years, everything that makes a Ubisoft game tick has been decided by a Paris-based editorial board. As it happens, having a select…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey arena guide – how to become the champion

Ancient Greeks were no stranger to blood sports in some places and while holding them in an arena would be something normally associated with Romans, it's no far stretch to include it in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. In the region of Pephka, there is a dedicated arena where would-be champions duke it out with waves of combatants to defeat in order to come out on top. This…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey cultists guide – all the Cult of Kosmos locations

At a specific point in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll come across a group that call themselves the Cult of Kosmos. They're nasty people whose collective goal is to bend the world to their whims by prolonging the Peloponnesian war, terrorising the local populace, and causing widespread chaos. Assassinating them all too soon becomes one of the main focuses of your odyssey, so in order to work…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey map guide – how big is the map, legend icons

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a massive game. In fact, you can't zoom out all the way to see just how big it really is. Encompassing Ancient Greece into a game is no small feat, so when you first visit the map on the pause screen, you may feel overwhelmed. I know I did when I first looked at it. But for those who want to have…

Tucked away and hidden from plain sight, there's one other big thing that is just waiting to be discovered: Atlantis. Yes, that Atlantis. You can actually explore the fabled lost city and it is quite a striking place full of technology from the ancient civilisation. Accessing…
