We knew for a while that two Assassin’s Creed games would be coming this year, and when Assassin’s Creed Unity was announced for current-generation consoles it was expected that the other game’s announcement wouldn’t be too far behind. However, a lot of time passed and we still didn’t hear one word about this supposed last-gen exclusive.
UNTIL NOW! Ubisoft has officially announced that the game that will be coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 exclusively is none other than Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game is set in the middle of the 18th century during the 7 Years’ War and you control a Templar named Shay Patrick Cormac. It was developed by Ubisoft Sofia in collaboration with Ubisoft offices in Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest, and completes the saga that started with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Ubisoft’s beautiful RPG Child of Light is set to make its PlayStation Vita debut this July, the company announced today. The game will be available digitally for $14.99 as well as physically with some extra content.
The retail version of the game will include all of the DLC; which includes a bonus quest, a new character and some collectibles.
You can play Child of Light currently on all last and current generation consoles as well as PC. The PlayStation Vita version is set for a July 1st release.
I missed out on Child of Light on its first go around due to a bunch of other games that were clamoring for my attention, but rest assured that I will not be missing its PlayStation Vita release. This seems like the perfect kind of game to play on the Vita’s excellent screen, as the game’s visual style will more than likely look phenomenal. I’m ready for you, child, I’m ready.
It was recently revealed that a sequel to the smash hit Far Cry 3 (ingeniously titled Far Cry 4) is coming later this year and is set in the Himalayas, but a pre-order page that appeared online has shed a bit more light.
“Hidden in the majestic Himalayas lies Kyrat, a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale. Traveling to Kyrat to fulfill your mother’s dying wish, you find yourself caught up in a civil war to overthrow the oppressive regime of dictator Pagan Min.”
“Explore and navigate this vast open world, where danger and unpredictability lurk around every corner. Here, every decision counts, and every second is a story. Welcome to Kyrat.”
Far Cry 4 is set to be released on last and current generation consoles as well as PC and has a release date of November 18th.
Civil war? Overthrowing of oppressive regime? Crazy and unpredictable environment? I do believe the plot sounds intriguing. Hell, I may even go as far as saying it sounds fascinating. Due to the quality that this series consistently churns out and the fact that the developers are claiming to try and top everything that has come before has me a little giddy.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot is very confident that Watch Dogs is going to sell over 6 million copies. Well, 6.3 million, to be exact.
Guillemot claims that he can set the high goal due to the massive success of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It also doesn’t hurt that the game has had an incredibly great ad campaign, and just about every new tidbit of information has been relished by just about everyone.
Watch Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and will be released on May 27th. A Wii U version is also being developed and is set to be released at the end of the year.
The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One are both performing very well, as they have both outsold their predecessors by this time in their life cycles. However, Ubisoft thinks that the good numbers are going to get even better.
Speaking at a recent earnings call, Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot said that he thinks that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have sold a combined 30 million units by March 2015.
Honestly, these numbers could be very possible. Remember, both systems haven’t really gotten into a good groove yet, so when even bigger titles are being released that you can only get on new-gen systems you better believe sales will go up.
We have been getting a lot of impressive Watch Dogs videos lately, but I think this one takes the cake. In the video we are witness to a “punk’d” situation where a store clerk tricks people into thinking that they can use an app that he installed on their phones to hack anything in the city.
Watch Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and will be released on May 27th. A Wii U version is also in development but will not be released until the end of this year.
Watch Dogs has been one of the most highly-advertised and highly-anticipated games of the year, with several different snippets and trailers being released in the run-up to its May 27th release date. If you’re a newcomer to everything Watch Dogs, than this new trailer is for you.

It’s been a while since we heard from the ol’ Persian Prince, but according to a new report Ubisoft might be in the midst of bringing him back into the fray. What’s most surprising about this report, however, is that the game is being developed in 2D.
The report from french website Le Portail du Jeu Video says that the game will use the same the same techniques of the last Rayman game, meaning a 2d plane with a 3D rendered environment and character models.
Condemn (OR) Condone:
If this ends up being true then that will be a truly ballsy move on developer Ubisoft. Though Prince of Persia got its start as a 2D platformer back in the day, many would agree that his prime time was when he was brought to the 3D realm. However, Ubisoft has found massive success with bringing Rayman back into the second dimension, so I can’t exactly write this one off just yet.
