Rainbow Six Siege Operation Dust Line Details Streamed

A few details about Operation Dust Line, Rainbow Six Siege‘s next update, dribbled out last week along with an an 18 second trailer. Last night there was a developer livestream with a lot more information about the new operators, map and rebalances coming to Ubisoft’s asymmetric terro-shooter.

Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Dust Line Due May 11th

Most of the time I’m complaining that game trailers are too long and convey little information, but these 18 seconds of Rainbow Six Siege cram a lot in about the next bit of free DLC. Operation Dust Line will introduce a new map and two new Navy SEAL operators to the destructive asymmetric first-person shooter.

The Division Update 1.2 Will Change Loot Drops

I found The Division‘s crafting system the most impenetrable part of the game when I played – I didn’t yet have our crafting guide – and now it seems the developers want to de-emphasise the system a little.

This comes from the game’s most recent developer livestream, kindly summarised on Reddit, which offered a preview of update 1.2. Apparently it will “get people away from crafting,” and “is to be more generous with loot in terms of quality and quantity.”

Trials Of The Blood Dragon Might Be A Thing?

Supposedly this is Trials of the Blood Dragon?

Eagle-eyed database watchers have spotted traces of an Ubisoft game named Trials of the Blood Dragon listed by the Taiwanese software rating board. The listings have been pulled, but did reveal a logo and single screenshot which seemed to show, yep, a Trials game with the neon lighting of Far Cry 3’s expandalone Blood Dragon. That’s it. If it’s real and happening, I’d expect more tricky Trials physics-based motorbike stunting but with neon lights. That’s the news. If you want news, no need to read on.

Now let’s gasbag about Turbo Kid and this fake ’80s aesthetic we see so much of.

Not The Settlers Any More: Kingdoms Of Anteria Reborn

It’s been two years since we last looked at The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria, and we’ll never see it again. Developers Ubisoft Blue Byte announced yesterday that they have “made the decision to steer this project in a new direction, meaning The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria as you know it no longer exists.” It’s no longer a kingdom-building strategy game or a ‘The Settlers’ game at all, but some sort of singleplayer party-based tactical RTS/action-RPG… thing? But hey, it isn’t a MOBA. Even if the new name, Champions of Anteria [official site], really does sound like one. Here, have a look:

Oh, And Rainbow Six Siege Has A Free Weekend Too

If you want to shoot faces in new and exciting ways, oh my giddy aunt you’re spoilt for choice this weekend! Gearbox’s Battleborn has an open beta going on, id Software’s new Doom’s has kicked off an open beta too, and oh mercy me I’ve just noticed Rainbow Six Siege has a free trial weekend too. Strewth! That’s a fair amount of the face-shooting spectrum covered there, from wall-bursting tactical action through hellfire to co-op storyshoots and MOBAing.

Pip has coined the excellent term ‘freekend’.

Ubisoft’s Annual Uplay Spring Sale Now On

My calendar tells me we’re now over halfway through April. The Met Office tells me astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere started on March 20. Yet the weatherman told me yesterday that I can expect highs of a whopping nine degrees centigrade here in Glasgow this weekend. I’d swear it was still winter had the annual Uplay Spring Sale not kicked off this week, with big discounts on the likes of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege and Far Cry 4, among others. Which others, you say? Find out after the drop.
