  1. 3Mind Games might not be a developer many have heard of before now, but that could change in the near future. The studio has just announced their first game titled The Protagonist, a narrative-oriented RPG that offers turn-based tactics and divergent story paths in an original sci-fi universe. The team at 3Mind describes the gameplay as a mix between XCOM and Divinity: Original Sin. If that's not enough to get your attention, I don't know what will. The Protagonist stars a galactic special agent who operates under the codename ANGEL. The military force of Terra has come into conflict with the KL-T, a mysterious fleet of robotic ships and soldiers. On a mission to infiltrate and destroy a major space station claimed by the invading KL-T, ANGEL finds herself knocked unconscious and awakens in the space station's infirmary at the heart of the space station with no memory of what has happened. With the station in full lockdown and hostiles around every corner, players have to decide how to escape from the heart of this imposing enemy stronghold while piecing together what happened. Along the way, players can recruit allies who may or may not be loyal to ANGEL's mission. How you treat party members and other NPCs can either benefit you in the long run or hinder your progress or unlock new routes and opportunities. Those who aren't attentive during conversations could be in for some nasty surprises. The Protagonist uses a combat system called Martial Arts Combat System (MACS). This system allows players to customize their hand-to-hand combat abilities. The customization is intended to be so deep that players will be able to create new combos and then share them online with other players. 3Mind Games formed out of development veterans from major studios in the industry like EA and Ubisoft. They're hoping to capture the spirit of Mass Effect inside an indie game package that could roll over into a long-running series. The first trailer for The Protagonist shows ANGEL in action alongside her companion RADICAL, an explosives specialist. The Protagonist will release for PC sometime in 2019.

  3. 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.

  5. After a couple of delays, it seems like it's finally safe to be excited for the release of South Park: The Fractured But Whole. And last night's latest entry into the core TV series season 21, episode 4 "Franchise Prequel " all but solidified the fact that yes, the new South Park game is indeed coming out in less than a week. The new episode aired October 11 and starts out with a superhero audition and evolves into commentary about Facebook. Innocent enough right? We've had episodes with the gang running around in superhero garb before, but there was more than just a subtle nod to the upcoming game at the end of the episode. In the final scene, there was a dialogue that will seem familiar to anyone who saw the E3 2016 trailer since its almost the exactly same (save a few edits). We see the group splitting up into two "franchises" creating the conflict for the game. With all of this in mind, Matt and Trey are probably giving us a hint to who at least one of the in-game villains will be, Mark Zuckerberg. Some background, in the episode some alarming pictures show up on Facebook of the Coon and Friends, thanks to Professor Chaos' ingenious and devious plan to slander them via the web. The parents of the SP universe, as competent as ever invite Mark Zuckerberg to the tiny mountain town to resolve things. Zuckerberg proves to be more trouble than he's worth (and has a weird dubbed voice?) and refuses to be "blocked" out of town. And if you needed any more evidence that the episode and game are indeed tied together, South Park tweeted this out in anticipation of the airing. The game officially releases on Tuesday, October 17. It follows its 2014 predecessor South Park: The Stick of Truth. Both games feature RPG gameplay closely resembling the style of the show. Will you be playing The Fractured But Whole? How do you think gameplay will differ from The Stick of Truth? View full article

  7. 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

  9. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time released in 2003, and it presented a new standard that action-adventure games still strive to achieve to this day. The titular prince and Farah, his sometimes-ally, have a relationship dynamic that felt lively and real, few games prior to 2003 had achieved such a portrayal. The influence of The Sands of Time can be felt in titles like Braid, The Last of Us, and BioShock Infinite. With a legacy that stretches back almost 15 years, is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time 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. Outro music: The Last Ninja 2: Back with a Vengeance 'Central Park (Metal Mix)' by Commando 64 (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02273) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday

  11. After a momentous E3 that brought the announcement of a new core Assasin's Creed game, Assasin's Creed: Origins, Ubisoft is keeping up with the momentum and announced plans for a mobile game. And it looks super adorable. Assasin's Creed Rebellion will be a strategy RPG where players create their own "Brotherhood and infiltrate the Templars’ strongholds." The setting will be 15th century Spain. Players can oversee their own fortress and complete covert missions. Over 40 assassins lend their blades to the experience. There will, of course, be familiar faces like Ezio, Claudia, Shao Jun and...Michael Fassbender. Additionally, Rebellion also features over 20 new characters made exclusively for the title. And those graphics are a "visual experience" ...and super cute. There isn't a release date, but Rebellion is free-to-play and is "coming soon" to iOS and Android. View full article

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  19. 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

  21. 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

  23. 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

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.
  25. 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.
