Ubisoft release For Honor: The Press First Impressions trailer

For Honor

Ubisoft have released a new For Honor trailer, showcasing the press’s first thoughts on the up and coming third-person melee fighting game, after it was announced at this year’s E3.

For Honor mixes speed, strategy, and team play, with visceral close quarter combat. Experience the chaos, fury and brutality of battle as fearsome Vikings, deadly Knights, and cold-blooded Samurai with your friends, when it releases onto Xbox One in 2016.

Former Ubisoft Toronto Studio Head Announces new project


Jade Raymond has announced today on twitter, that she has left Ubisoft to join EA and start up a new development studio in her home town of Montreal, Canada.

Raymond has been relatively quiet since her departure from Ubisoft in October last year after a 20 year career spanning roles at Sony, EA, and ultimately Ubisoft Montreal.

On the blog at the EA site, (, she had this to say.

It’s energizing to see EA today bringing more passion than ever to the games they make, and passion to getting it right for players. Motive will work in close quarters with the BioWare team. Yanick Roy and the BioWare Montreal team are doing some new and exciting things with Mass Effect: Andromeda and it’s clear that there is already so much talent to collaborate with on site. And as a player of the latest Battlefield and Dragon Age games, I have experienced what the Frostbite engine can do; and I can’t wait to get my hands on it and see what a new team can create!


I for one am looking forward to finding out more about who will make up the team at Motive, and what IP’s they will develop under the EA umbrella.



Siege’s heavily armored third unit


Coming up for the third team entry of Rainbow Six Siege is the french counter terrorism unit GIGN. Packing some seriously heavy armor and close quarters defensive ability we see members Twitch, Montagne, Doc and Rook do what they do best when it comes to saving lives. This looks to be a very fierce unit to be going against with all of that armor and having Doc as a field medic is an advantage in it self. The GIGN proves that saving lives is more important than one’s own, “S’engager pour la vie” – Commit for life.

Trackmania Turbo devs get behind the camera


Ubisoft announced Trackmania Turbo at E3. It was sadly one of the presentations that I missed. I wish I’d had the time to catch up on it as Trackmania Turbo looks really interesting.

With this in mind, Tommy Francois and the game’s Creative Director Francois Alaux talk us through some of the racer’s features, including the Double Driver mode, where two players have to co-operate to control the racer on the track.

Trackmania Turbo looks intriguing and could offer some fun with friends if the features are polished enough, which, knowing Ubisoft, they probably will be.

Here’s 6-odd minutes of this racer’s features. Enjoy.

The friends and foes of Ubisoft’s The Division


3 weeks after a pandemic spread across the country, and brought the United States Governments to its knees 5 days later, it is up to you and your fellow Division Agents to bring peace to New York City.

As you arrive in Manhattan, you are faced with a city which is at war with itself. Various factions across the borough, fighting for total control. You are free to form squads with your friends online and hunt down these groups to gain control. In your squad you are able to wander around the city, and seamlessly enter Dark Zones and team up, or face off, with other players.

Currently, Ubisoft have announced three main factions who will be patrolling the city, the first one of which shall become a strong ally in your fight for control. The Joint Taskforce are a group formed of the National Guard, police and fire services, and medical personnel.

When the fabric of society tears, these are the people who band together

 Creative Director Juilan Gerighty.

The Joint Taskforce share the same goal with you, to bring peace in the sea of chaos that is New York City. They want to reclaim the city from the enemy factions, and put an end to the virus. When you arrive in Manhattan, they are losing the battle to keep the city together, and require your help to restore order. In one example of the agents helping the Joint Taskforce, you are required to clear out a police station, and make room for friendly groups to move in and gain a foothold in that part of the city. You may also come across a group of soldiers who have been pinned down by a group of violent Cleaners (more on them soon), and it up to you to help push » Continue Reading.

E3 Ubisoft Conference – round-up


The Ubisoft conference is the fourth press conference of this year’s E3 and expectations are for more information and footage of already announced games. However, will they have a few surprises up their sleeves? Aisha Tyler once again presents this year’s conference, with her genuine passion for the industry, charisma and skilful presenting helping to smooth over the sometimes awkward stage presence of developers. Mind you, our money’s on a “tall woman” joke hitting at some point during the show.

First up is a complete and wonderful surprise, a new South Park RPG is in the works, South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Smashing title by the way. Showing in-game footage the reveal trailer hints at a hilarious continuation of the previous game’s story and characters, this time, however, the South Park lad are playing super heroes rather than high fantasy. No release date yet, but colour us excited.

Next up is another surprise, and a new IP at that, For Honor, a medieval melee-combat action game where you choose to be the heroes Viking, Knight, or Samurai in a 4 vs. 4 fight amongst a bustling battlefield. They’ll be multiple modes with different objectives, but the focus is on short, team combat scenarios. Proclamations are made of this being a new genre, we hope they’re referring to a new genre for Ubisoft, because there’s some striking similarities with the likes of Chivalry going on.

Next a new expansion is revealed for The Crew, The Crew: Wildrun, where monster trucks and dirt track vehicles seem to be the focus. Then a new expansion for Trails Fusion is revealed, Trails Fusion: Awesome Level Max, where you are a cat riding a fire breathing unicorn. We’re sold.
