  1. Beyond Good and Evil 2 made a comeback during the Ubisoft E3 2017 conference with a trailer confirming its continued development. On June 22 we got a behind-the-scenes look at the demo that ran at E3. The just under 15-minute video shows early in-engine footage as it's being described by Creative Director Michel Ancel. Ancel shows off some mechanics as well as the scale of a couple of ships in comparison to the size of one of the new main characters, a chimpanzee named Knox. Scale was a huge focus (pun intended) in the demo. Ancel took Knox to the 700-meter tall statue next to the already enormous space ships and then zoomed out to give the viewer a different vantage point. He then zoomed out to the atmosphere and then to space to showcase the enormity of the world the team is building. There isn't a release date for the game, but there is a community called the Space Monkey Program that fans can join to get info on the game as it comes out. View full article

  3. Ubisoft Toronto unveiled an action-adventure space shooter titled Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Set in a “massive, open living star system,” players construct custom starships from a variety of collectible parts to explore space and visit seven unique planets in search of ancient secrets and confront outlaws. The kicker is that not only are there in-game ship parts, but physical parts as well. The trailer shows players assembling miniature model ships by hand and docking them to to the controller, meaning it may have some sort of toys-to-life component. Starlink: Battle for Atlas is slated to hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in the fall of next year. Ubisoft Toronto has promised more surprises in the coming months. View full article

  5. Though E3 proper hasn't yet begun, the pre-E3 press conferences have! This year, we are going to be capping off each day with a podcast discussing the news of the day with the talented bunch of people we've collected to cover the year's biggest gaming trade show. Day three covered a lot of ground between Ubisoft and Sony. The two industry titans threw out some pretty exciting announcements, like a completely overhauled Shadow of the Colossus for the PS4 and confirmation that, yes, Beyond Good & Evil 2 exists. Jack Gardner, Marcus Stewart and Naomi Lugo cover the basic, need-to-know announcements from the day. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the show with us! View full article
  6. After spending roughly a decade in secluded development, Beyond Good & Evil 2 made its grand return at the conclusion of Ubisoft's E3 media briefing. An emotional Michel Ancel took the stage to thank the fans for their continued support throughout the years and ran down the game's premise. Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a prequel story, set years before the birth of the previous game's hero, Jade. Set in System 3, described as a "multi-ethnic, multicultural, human society in a distant solar system," corporations create hybrids that they then enslave in order to compete in an arms race for colonization and cosmic resources. The eclectic cast of heroes will take part in a battle for the freedom to determine their own fate in the universe. The trailer shows a chimpanzee character named Knox swindling Zhou Yuzhu, a pig crime boss, out of a promised treasure, then escaping to meet up with a human partner. The two embark on a daring aerial chase from the city's police unit, who appear to be in Zhou's pocket. Ancel promised a "seamless online playground" for players to explore the mysteries of space, either alone or with friends. Visiting the game's website and registering for the Space Monkey program will grant players the chance to help influence Beyond Good & Evil 2's development. Beyond Good & Evil 2 still doesn't have a firm release window but the project appears to be coming along nicely which reassure fans. View full article
  7. With Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft has proven it knows how to craft a good pirate game, specifically in regards to naval combat. The publisher is taking that know-how to the next level with Skull and Bones, a new IP that pits teams of players against each other in open seas warfare during the height of the Golden Age of Piracy. Skull & Bones' conflicts are waged in the Indian Ocean. Teams of five compete against each other in explosive ship battles with the winners determined by whoever emerges with the most loot once the dust settles. Different vessels boast specific advantages, such as reinforced hulls or battering rams that devastate ships in close quarter combat. Taking into account your ships strengths and weaknesses, as well as the weather conditions can make all the difference in deciding the pirate that wins the day. Cooperation with your comrades is also key. In the trailer, the arrival of pirate hunters, formidable AI units that target the wealthiest ship, prompted one player to sacrifice their ship by ramming it into a pirate hunter, allowing the vessel bearing the treasure to escape. Players can recruit their own crew members, assign captains, and customize their ships to their liking. Either alone or with friends, they can raid a large open world and take on opposing players in several multiplayer modes. You can look for Skull & Bones to release next fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. View full article
  8. Far Cry 5 takes players into the heart of Montana in the fictional Hope County. A militia led by a fanatical religious leader has overtaken the area and it's up to players to rid Hope County of this dangerous threat. Given the militia's overwhelming presence in the area, that's a tall order. Luckily, it's not one that has to be tackled alone. Ubisoft showed off a gameplay walkthrough demonstrating how players can use guns-for-hire, such as Grace the sharpshooter, to aid them during missions. Grace eliminated targets designated by the player from afar and even called out unseen enemies closing in on the player. Boomer, the player's canine companion, can be ordered to attack foes and fetch weapons. When air support is needed, pilot Nick Rye can fly in on his biplane and unleash a hail of gunfire upon targets. Those who prefer a more personable touch of assistance can have their friends lend a hand with missions online. Far Cry 5 hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC February 27, 2018. View full article

  12. After much speculation and numerous leaks, Mario + Rabbid Kingdom Battle had its official unveiling at Ubisoft's E3 presentation. Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto took the stage with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot to pitch this strange partnership to Rabbid and Mushroom Kingdom enthusiasts around the globe. The title has been in the works for three years and is being developed by Ubisoft’s European studios. A tactical turn-based adventure, Mario, Luigi, and Peach team up with the Rabbids (wearing the outfits of their Nintendo allies) to battle not-so-nice Rabbids. Miyamoto promised "great layers of strategy and tactics" in the experience. The party explores several colorful locales with designated battle zones triggering combat. Encounters take an XCOM-esque approach, with players taking turns to position characters across various maps, placing them in strategic locations such as destructible cover points and launching attacks via their arm cannons. Party members can use tandem abilities, such as a Rabbid climbing atop Mario’s feet and Mario launching it to a higher area. Another clip showed Mario and Luigi chaining together blaster attacks to juggle other characters. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle arrives exclusively for Nintendo Switch on August 29.

  19. Ubisoft has begun the hype machine by unveiling a teaser trailer for Far Cry 5. The franchise has set its eyes on the wilds of the United States. With a haunting scream in the wilderness, a mysterious running man, and a church hymn, Ubisoft has kicked off what has to be some of the strongest reactions to a Far Cry game reveal since the 2010 reveal of Far Cry 3. Details are scarce, but the teaser implies that the action will be taking place in Hope County, Montana. More details will be coming later this week. The official announcement trailer will be released this coming Friday, May 26, to show exactly what will be going on in Far Cry 5. Maybe we'll even see a release date? What do you think? Is Far Cry in the United States a great setting?

  21. In a free update released today, Ubisoft introduced a new PvP options to their open world hacking game. Additions include a new 2v2 game mode called Showd0wn, online races, loot trucks, a paintball gun, and assorted clothes. Showd0wn mode offers three types of objectives to two teams of two: Steal the HDD, Doom-load (King of the Hill Style), and Erase/Protect the Servers. These objectives play out occur across fifteen distinct locations in-game. The patch release describes Showd0wn as an endgame activity that can be tackled solo through matchmaking or cooperatively with a friend. Additionally, Online drone, motocross and eKart races are launching today. Each race type will come with their own leaderboards. Loot trucks can be found following the patch on the streets of Watch Dogs 2. Players will be able to hack these trucks to get at their valuable cargo, but doing so will summon a swarm of armed police. A paintball gun has been added to provide some levity to the game's arsenal. The paint pellets can stun enemies and also accumulate on the screen of human adversaries in PvP. Finally, thirteen new clothing items. Some tweaks have been made to leaderboards and explosions (the closer you are to an explosion, the more damage you take). The patch should be live sometime today.

  23. Hey all! I'm new to the forum, so I figured I'd make a pretty simple first post. Rainbow Six: Siege has easily made it's way into my Top 3 games that I play constantly, along with Overwatch & Black Ops 3 (because Zombies). I made my way into Gold 4 this season for ranked game play (then one loss plummeted it to Silver 2) because I feel like the pressure's on to perform when streaming ranked. Who else plays? If you play ranked, what's your rank? Keep Calm & Game On! ~Tyler "TyRich159" Richard

  25. Perhaps the quintessential cult classic, Beyond Good & Evil released in 2003 to some critical acclaim and lackluster sales. Directed by Michel Ancel, the creator of Rayman who yearned for more creative freedom at Ubisoft, the multiplatform release tackled very early 2000s themes of propaganda and murky government motivations as seen through the eyes of a young photojournalist who finds herself torn between the government who says it is keeping her safe and the resistance who tells her everything she knows is a lie. Combining themes that resonate to this day with an art style that has aged well and characters that ring true, is Beyond Good & Evil one of the best games period? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
