  1. California has been at the heart of a number of deadly wildfires raging across the state lately. At least 41 people have lost their lives to the fires and more than 20,000 have been forced to evacuate their homes to flee for safety. Many people and organizations have stepped up to support relief efforts. To help aid those affected by the fires, Ubisoft has pledged to help, too. To help, Ubisoft has added California-themed Assassin's Creed shirts and hoodies to the company's online US store. All proceeds from those pieces of Assassin's Creed apparel will go to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund, which goes toward supporting people in the affected areas who have lost homes or the ability to work, first responders who lost homes, and both kids and schools in the fire zones. Ubisoft might usually be seen as an international company, but with one of their teams based in San Francisco, they've certainly seen how these fires have affected the community. Ubisoft's president of their Americas division issued a statement saying, "we have employees, family and friends that were directly impacted by these fires. We’ve donated money and we’ll roll up our sleeves volunteering, but we want to do more. The shirts are just one of the ways we can continue to support our neighbors who have lost everything.” The limited run of Assassin's Creed "NorCal Strong" shirts will be sold until the end of December.

  3. We may be a few weeks away from the launch of Assassin's Creed Origins, but that doesn't mean we can't discuss the stuff you can add to the game after it hits shelves. Ubisoft has laid out the road map for the game's season pass and other post-launch content, offering goodies both paid and otherwise. For Season Pass holders (which comes with the Gold Edition), you'll get the following: The Hidden Ones story pack where players take on Roman forces years after the events of the main game. It launches January 2018. The Curse of the Pharaohs story pack. Players battle undead pharaohs and other supernatural beasts from Egyptian mythology. Look for that in March 2018. Roman Centurion and Horus packs containing new outfits and other accessories in November. At launch, you'll receive 500 Helix points and an exclusive weapon, the Calamity Blade. If you're into not paying for stuff, Ubisoft plans to shower both player bases with post-release content free of charge. This includes Photo Mode, a multiplayer Horde mode, the educational Discovery Tour that teaches ancient Egyptian history, and special timed boss events called The Trial of the Gods. Most will be available at launch, with Horde mode and Discovery Tour arriving next year. Assassin's Creed Origins launches October 27th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more on the game, check out its E3 2017 reveal trailer. View full article

  5. Assassin's Creed: Origins was one of E3 2017's worst kept secrets thanks to numerous pre-show leaks, but it made its official unveiling at Microsoft's E3 press event. The debut trailer confirmed the rumored ancient Egyptian setting, detailing the story of the first group of people to call themselves assassins. The gameplay demonstration introduced players to Bayak, described as an "Egyptian sheriff" of sorts named, sliding down the side of a still-young pyramid. He faced off against armored enemies in a coliseum using various methods including the traditional blades, a sword and shield combination, and multi-shot bow and arrow strikes. Bayak's also shown swimming underwater, avoiding deadly threats like hippos and crocodiles. Among the locations players will explore include the Mediterranean Sea as well as the numerous royal tombs that dot the city of Giza. A long-form demo showcased additional gameplay from Origins, detailing new mechanics and stealth maneuvers. Using a trained eagle scout and pinpoint enemies, Bayak infiltrates the grounds of a local ruler's stronghold. The eagle seems to have replaced the series' signature towers for gaining new geography intel. Bayak used the tall grass to sneak up on guards and perform traditional takedowns. The demo concluded with Bayak taking down the ruler with a single bow shot, guiding the arrow's trajectory with a slow motion, first-person view. Assassin's Creed: Origins launches October 27 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Do you feel the Egyptian setting and origin story are enough to shake-up the long-running franchise?

  7. Assassin's Creed: Origins debuted at Microsoft's E3 press event. The debut trailer revealed the world of the first group of people to call themselves assassins in Ubisoft's action franchise. The trailer showed the main character, an egyptian "sheriff" of sorts named Bayak, sliding down the side of a large pyramid, battling armored enemies in a coliseum, firing a multi-shot bow at enemies, and swimming underwater while avoiding creatures like hippos and aggressive crocodiles. A developer from Ubisoft implied this game would detail the very beginning of the assassin order. A longform demo showcased additional gameplay from Origins, detailing new mechanics and stealth maneuvers. Using a trained eagle, Bayak infiltrates the grounds of a local ruler's stronghold. The eagle is able to scout from the sky and mark enemies. Magi was able to use tall grass in the stronghold to sneak up on guards and perform traditional takedowns. The demo concluded with Bayak taking down the ruler with a single bow shot, guiding the arrow's trajectory in slow motion. It's been a while since we had an Assassin's Creed to chew on. What do you think about its Egyptian setting and new gameplay abilities?

  9. In the wake of Duncan Jones' financially successful Warcraft film, Ubisoft's film division is set to go into overdrive. Their Assassin's Creed starring Michael Fassbender releases on December 21, followed by their mysterious Splinter Cell project with Tom Hardy sometime in 2017. Now Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal are attached to a now confirmed project based on The Division, which launched earlier this year. Many will remember Jake Gyllenhaal starred as Dastan in the Disney film based off of and titled Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, another Ubisoft property. That particular film didn't fare well critically and underperformed at the box office in 2010. This time around, things might be a bit different. Beginning with Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft will be the ones producing and distributing the film through Ubisoft Motion Pictures. This move will give them more creative control over the content and style of their films. Additionally, both Fassbender and Gyllenhaal will be producing as well as acting in their respective films. Ostensibly, this will give the actors some say in how they are portrayed and lead to greater collaboration on Ubisoft's films. No word yet on a release date or window for The Division film. Could more Ubisoft properties be on the way to the big screen? What would you like to see? View full article

  11. Ubisoft's annual E3 press event brought the big news and strange happenings we've come to expect from the publisher's E3 outings. Things kicked off with a Just Dance performance set to Queen, which included, but was not limited to, a dancing giraffe, a panda, and a guy playing a huge, butterfly-shaped guitar. It was as goofy and over-the-top as we’ve come to expect from Just Dance E3 segments. Perennial host Aisha Tyler then took the stage to welcome us all, as well as confirm that Just Dance 2017 is releasing on all platforms in October and next year for Nintendo NX. Ghost Recon: Wildlands got a new trailer setting the table for its narrative. Players assume the role of Ghost agents tasked with eliminating a Mexican drug lord, who has seized the majority of cocaine operations in Bolivia. With the motives established, a lengthy gameplay video showcased the four-player cooperative tactics. Players can plot their approach and work together to complete missions stealthily or barrel in guns blazing. The video provided examples of both scenarios unfolding in the same mission, as the quiet infiltration soon devolves into a raucous multi-vehicle car chase and shootout. Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases March 7, 2017. South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone brought new footage of South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the superhero sequel to The Stick of Truth. The switch from high fantasy to costumed vigilantes runs deeper than just aesthetics. It also brings two new mechanics called Space and Time. Space lets players maneuver and position themselves in various parts of the field during combat (such as behind enemies) instead of remaining static. Time refers to the ability to alter the turn order using a fart so powerful, it tears through time itself. South Park: The Fractured But Whole releases December 6 of this year. The Division took the stage next with information about its first year of DLC. The first major expansion, Underground, pits players against a new threat beneath New York City. It launches June 28 on Xbox One and PC and August 2 for PlayStation 4. To commemorate Ubisoft's 30th anniversary, three new outfits based on Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and Rainbow Six will be free to members of the Ubisoft Club at the release of Underground. Ubisoft then teased the second expansion, Survival. This different approach to Division gameplay is centered around the idea of scavenging for scarce supplies while enduring harsh weather conditions. While there's no release date, Ubisoft promised Survival will arrive "sooner than you think". And now for something completely different. Oculus Rift founder Palmer Lucky along with other designers stepped up to play a round of Eagle Flight, the first-person VR flight title that puts players behind the beak of birds of prey. On display was a Capture the Flag inspired mode called Capture the Prey. Teams of eagles must locate and secure designated prey while preventing the opposing avian team from doing the same. It looks very weird, but kind of fun. Like all VR games, it’s difficult to cast a verdict without trying it yourself. Ever wanted to explore and interact with the bridge of the Enterprise? Star Trek: Bridge Crew looks to fulfill every Trekkie's dream using the technology of Oculus Rift. Demonstrated by Star Trek alumni such as Levar Burton and Karl Urban, players can assume the roles of Enterprise crew roles, such as Captain and Engineer, to maintain and pilot the ship while exploring the cosmos. Boldly go where no man has gone before in what looks to be the most immersive Star Trek experience yet. For Honor has focused so much on the multiplayer side of things that some players may be surprised to know that there’s a story mode. A slick narrative focused video revealed what seems to be the antagonist of the game. Viking gameplay was showcased with a ten-minute gameplay footage of Viking raid of a Samurai-occupied fort. Grow Home melted a lot of hearts in 2015, and now B.U.D. is back in Grow Up. This time, he’s free from the watchful eye of M.O.M. allowing him free rein across an entire planet. In addition to the plant growing mechanic, players can now use seeds to sprout plants used to bounce to incredible heights, even reaching the moon. Grow Up sprouts this August for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The minds behind the Trials series and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon are combining their unique brands of zany to create a title filled to the brim with insanity. Trails of the Blood Dragon takes the classic motocross gameplay of trials and drenches it in the 80’s neon-colored paint of Blood Dragon. The result looks as ridiculous as it does fun. Don’t just take my word for it. Trials of the Blood Dragon is available now. In case you weren't aware, there's an Assassin's Creed movie coming this December. While there weren't any gaming related updates about Ubisoft's historical juggernaut, Aisha Tyler did sit down with producer Frank Marshall to discuss the film's development. Capping off the chat was a behind-the-scenes trailer for the film that provides a glimpse into how the game adaptation is being assembled. Video game-based movies have an less than stellar track record, but Assassin's Creed has one of the best shots at being at least halfway decent. Watch Dogs 2 hacked its way into the show, showing off one of its infiltration missions. New hero Marcus Holloway sneaks and hacks his way into the home of a nefarious social media CEO. With some Eric B. and Rakim banging in his earphones, Marcus crashes the party, displaying his combat prowess while backed by some technical support (literally) from his Dedsec allies. Watch Dogs 2 appears to be shaping up nicely and already displays significantly more personality than its predecessor. Ubisoft announced DLC for Watch Dogs 2 hits PlayStation 4 30 days before other platforms and that a Watch Dogs feature film is in the works. Watch Dogs 2 arrives November 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Ubisoft wrapped their event by unveiling a new IP called Steep. Developed by Ubisoft Annecy, Steep is set in the snowy Alps and is a multiplayer-focused sports titles. Players take the roles of skiers and wingsuit fliers to compete in a variety of stunts and challenges across different areas of the popular mountain range. Skier tracks remain carved into the mountain, and can be traced and viewed in a menu. You can also use the tracks to view replays of your run, as well as pinpoint the tricky jumps or turns you pulled off and send them to friends as challenges. Annecy is planning beta periods for Steep before its full release this December. Ubisoft didn't have any blockbusters announcements, but they did a great job of showcasing the titles we already knew about and making them look like must-play experiences. For Honor looks better with each showing, and Watch Dogs 2 seems to be steadily winning over naysayers of the original. We got a great look Ghost Recon and South Park in action, and players of The Division have a clear road map of meaningful content to look forward to. I'm not sold on Eagle Flight and Star Trek: Bridge Crew yet. They look cool on paper, until you realize their level of enjoyment largely depends on having several friends who live in close proximity who have also taken the ultra-expensive plunge into VR. That simply isn't a reality for a majority of players, so I don't know how exciting those projects can really be right now. Even still, this was another good, solid showing for Ubisoft.
