Ubisoft’s Gods & Monsters was renamed after trademark troubles with Monster Energy

I can honestly tell you that Gods & Monsters never once made me think about Monster Energy drink, but the drinks company apparently thought otherwise. It's come to light that Monster actually filed a legal opposition to Ubisoft's Gods & Monsters trademark.A couple of weeks ago, Ubi revealed they'd renamed the game to Immortals Fenyx Rising, citing creative reasons for the switch. That doesn't seem…

Roller Champions should skate out next year

When Ubisoft announced Roller Champions with great fanfare and a public alpha test at E3 2019 but only a few months later announced a delay and went a bit quiet, I thought it might join the ranks of their many seemingly-dead games. But those forgotten games are on: Gods & Monsters is due in December (even if it has a daft new name), the space…

Far Cry 3 is spawning a VR game for cyberarcades

Y'know that X-Files episode where Mulder and Scully wear cybervests and jack into VR to fight a cyberbabe? What if that, but Far Cry 3? I am thrilled to tell that Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity is what, a new game coming to a type of VR arcade where you and your pals strap on cybergoggles and cyberarmour and hold cyberguns and run around…

Ubisoft VR space game AGOS looks awfully familiar, from Watch Dogs 2

Ubisoft today announced AGOS: A Game Of Space, a VR game which... hang on, why do I feel like I've seen this before? AGOS will put players in the silicon of an AI overseeing a colony ship, exploring, gathering, trading, and upgrading to complete the mission of finding a new home in the stars. And it looks familiar because one Watch Dogs 2 mission had…

Massive multiplayer stunt ’em up Riders Republic flips out next year

If you pull of a flip and nobody's around to see it, is it even really gnarly? Fortunately, that won't be a problem in Riders Republic, a whopping great extreme sports romp announced during tonight's Ubisoft Forward showcase - one that plans to set you and up to 49 other bikers, boarders, and wingsuited adrenaline junkies loose on a mountain valley to prove, once and…

Watch Dogs: Legion DLC will bring back Aiden Pearce, still wearing his iconic cap

To the delight of perhaps as many as seven people, Ubisoft today announced that Watch_Underscore_Dogs protagonist Aiden "The Fox" Pearce will come to Watch Dogs: Legion in DLC. Six years after the first game, he's still wearing his stupid coat and "iconic" cap as he visits London for surly business. He's not even washed the cap.

Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game is playing an encore this Winter

It's 2010, Michael Cera is playing a bass guitar, and every guy your age is wearing that Plumtree top. It's peak Pilgrim, baby, which means you're probably playing Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game. Four years later, and the banger of a beat 'em up will be impossible to play. Six agonising years after that, at a Ubisoft Forward event one September eve, the…

Feature: Print the myth

Immortals Fenyx Rising is like if Assassin’s Creed had a Zelda baby and Ubi got custody

I'm going to get this out of the way, because every outlet with a hands on preview of Ubisoft's action-adventure Immortals Fenyx Rising (which used to be called Gods & Monsters) is going to say it somewhere. Immortals Fenyx Rising is a proper Breath-Of-The-Wildalike. It's one themed around Ancient Greek myths, yes, but you've got yer horses you can tame, yer open world to explore…

Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake announced

Ubisoft today announced they're remaking Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, 2003's fun action-platformer about a wall-running lad with a magical time-rewinding dagger. Seems they're winding time forwards on the game, fully redoing art, getting folks into motion capture suits for new animations, and even getting the Prince's original actor back in for a new performance. It's coming in January under the imaginative name…

A new season just snuck up on Rainbow Six: Siege

Huh! Out of nowhere, a massive, unannounced update just skulked its way into Rainbow Six: Siege. Fittingly, it's the one wot's adding Splinter Cell sneaky-boy Sam Fisher to the Clanceyverse team shooter. Operation Shadow Legacy is now live seemingly ahead of its own announcement, adding a new operator, map and scope reworks, and a whole host of smaller fixes. Just give us a heads up…

Ubisoft say Skull & Bones is “in full swing with a new vision”

Three years after announcing Skull & Bones with an initial squall of previews, Ubisoft still don't have much to say about the pirate ship game which was once due in 2018. Don't expect to see it during tonight's Ubisoft Forward announce-o-rama stream or even this year, Ubi have now said, but they do assure that production is "in full swing with a new vision". Last…

The open-world Viking simulator was originally supposed to come out on November 17th, but the plan has changed after Microsoft today announced the shiny new Xbox Series X and S will launch on the 10th. For Xboxes, that makes Valhalla a launch title, but over here in…

Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising may launch in December

At this rate, Ubisoft won't get to reveal anything about their open-world Greek mythology game themselves. The new name Immortals Fenyx Rising (formerly known as Gods & Monsters) was revealed by the Taiwan ratings committee earlier this week. Now Microsoft have gone and dished what might be the release date in a prematurely-posted store page. If this new leak is to be believed, Fenyx Rising will launch on…

Feature: Everybody Loves Rayman

Have You Played… Rayman Origins?

Rayman is now a bit part player. Like Ubi stablemate Sam Fisher, his days of being the main attraction are over. Despite the quality of 2013’s Rayman Legends, the limbless wonder seems confined to making sporadic appearances in games that just aren’t as good as his own.Although, it’s not like Ray’s a stranger to a comeback. After many years on the shelf, his act was…
