Assassin’s Creed Chronicles begins with China

Assassins-creed-chronicles

I am stupidly excited for the next entry into the Assassin’s Creed series – Chronicles. The new trilogy kicks off with China, and the launch trailer is below – it looks wonderful!

In 16th-century China the recently appointed Jiajing Emperor instigated a sudden and ruthless purge of all he felt were a danger to his newly acquired throne, including the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins. A young Assassin, Shao Jun, fled to the West to complete her training under the legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore in the animated short Assassin’s Creed: Embers and has returned, determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.

The fun begins tomorrow, April 21 – I can’t wait to get home and download this!

Ubisoft announce brand new Assassin’s Creed trilogy

Assassins-creed-chronicles

Ubisoft have revealed that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles will be the next title in the popular series, however it’s not what you might expect! Chronicles is a trilogy that will take you on a journey spread over three games with three different assassins, across three different periods in history and three different empires – China, India and Russia.

Check out the trailer below… Do I spot a bit of UbiArt! It looks fantastic and I’m already buzzing with excitement. The side scrolling 2.5D action will make for a great change of pace to the series and has a Prince of Persia vibe about the gameplay.

China will be the first chronicle in the series, which will release on April 22.

Collector’s Edition and Operator system are headed to Rainbow Six Siege

Rainbow-Six-Siege

 

Ubisoft have announced that Rainbow Six Siege will have its own Collector’s Edition, which will include:

    Full game Collector’s box Gold Skins Pack for all in-game weapons Exclusive 120-page Tactical Guide

The edition can be pre-ordered now from the Uplay Shop. Remember, if you do pre-order the game you’ll get access into the upcoming beta for the game. To sweeten the deal, if you do pre-order from the Uplay Store, you are “guaranteed” access to the beta and also receive an ‘exclusive numbered steel book’ with the game.

Ubisoft have also announced that an Operators system will be at the heart of Rainbow Six Siege – here’s the trailer.

Made up from the best of the best, Operators go back to the roots of the Rainbow Six series – a team made up of specialists from the World’s Special Forces – each member has a unique skill, or rather a preference in how to get things done.

Check out the trailer below to hear more about the system direct from the developers and be sure to join Ubisoft on March 30 at 7pm UK time when they will be streaming the game on Twitch.

Rainbow Six: Siege – it’s ‘beta’ to pre-order

Rainbow-Six-Siege

If you want a sneak peek at what’s in store for the Rainbow Six series, then you best get your pre-order in.

Currently Ubisoft are trialling a closed Alpha test that was only available to PC owners, the Beta however will roll out across platforms.

The Closed Alpha and the Closed Beta will help us to build a stable experience and to playtest game elements on a very large scale. Whether you’re testing early on PC during the closed alpha, or helping us validate the experience once we open on all platforms, we’re looking forward to interacting with you and working together to make Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege the best it can be at launch.

The GAME pre-order page notes that Beta codes are due to be distributed from today and that you will need a Uplay account to sign up. If you don’t fancy pre-ordering the game, but would still like the chance to join the close beta, then you can join the ‘waiting list’ after completing a short survey.

AC: Unity patch finally removes Companion App requirements

Assassins-Creed-Unity-Logo

Almost three months after its initial launch on the Xbox One, Ubisoft have finally listened to consumers and removed the companion app requirements that were littered throughout Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

The latest patch that has just released on the Xbox One means that all the Initiate chests that were previously locked away behind the ridiculous companion app, can now be accessed whenever you stumble across them, which means I’m going to be booting that game up later today to collect the rest of them.

As well as this fantastic news, the latest update fixes a variety of other bugs such as random crashes, gear unlocks and textures issues. Unity may have had a rough launch but it’s slowly becoming a great game.

The patch should be available to download now and the full details can be found below or on the Ubisoft site.

Trivial Pursuit Live! available now

TrivialPursuitTitle

Ah, what better way to spend a wet half-term day in with the kids, than arguing over the answer to a Trivial Pursuit question? As of today, you can do just that without having to worry about whether you’ve got all of the little wedges in the box.

Ubisoft and Hasbro Gaming have released the launch trailer for Trivial Pursuit Live! Coming out on Xbox One and 360, this takes the game to a new level with a fresh, new, TV show style and all-new question types to puzzle over.

Developed by Longtail Studios, this modern twist will feature adaptive difficulty levels and unique catch-up rounds that will offer players an original experience.

A bit of trivia before the trailer, Trivial Pursuit was first conceived by Canadian Chris Haney, in 1979. Here’s that trailer.

Far Cry 4 Overrun DLC Released

Far-Cry-4

Our friends at Ubisoft have just announced the release of its 3rd DLC pack for its gripping Far Cry 4 game. The expansion named Overrun brings 4 new maps, Waterfront, Steelhead, Training and Reeducation and one new PVP mode. The maps have been especially crafted for the expansion and the PVP mode, so-called Overrun, will have you defending certain areas of the map while your opponents attack before having to quickly switch to a new area. This means that not only are you battling for control but also who gets there first.

Not only do you get the 4 new maps and a new multiplayer mode but they have also thrown in access to the dune buggy, something we think you might need as you dash from one area to another on the maps and also the Map Editor maps. This means you and a friend can now play all the maps created by other players within the game.

Available now to download for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360, Overrun looks like another good addition to the already existing DLC’s and the good news to all season pass holders, it’s free.
