Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins now available on Games With Gold

Its reached June 16th (just where is this year going?), which means that 2 new Games With Gold are available for that magic price of FREE!

This time, its Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins that are available, and by my reckoning thats at least 200 hours of gaming for zero pounds. Watch Dogs took a little bit of criticism on release but I played it to death on release and loved it. Dragon Age Origins, although not my cup of tea, was critically acclaimed.

Links to the 2 games on Xbox.co.uk can be found here – Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins.

And don’t forget the awesome Speedrunners is still available if you are after some 4 player insane multiplayer action! Link here – Speedrunners.

Watch_Dogs – Vigilante Edition Unboxing

The Vigilante Edition is the ideal Watch_Dogs Collector Edition for anyone willing to embody the hacker vigilante in real life. Discover now the high-end content exclusively created to let you live an extended Watch_Dogs’ experience!

Set in Chicago, where a central network of computers connects everyone and everything, Watch_Dogs explores the impact of technology within our society. Using the city as your weapon, you will embark on a personal mission to inflict your own brand of justice.

Chicago’s overarching network is known as the Central Operating System (ctOS), and it controls almost all of the city’s technology and information – including key data on all of the city’s residents.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you’ll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand. You’ll access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy… and more.

Due for release hopefully on May 27th 2014

Breaking News – Ubisoft Delays Watchdogs and The Crew Until 2014

In BREAKING NEWS, Ubisoft has spectacularly just announced that Watchdogs has been delayed till 2014 on all formats. Announced via the Ubisoft blog, the developers posted the following:

Our ambition from the start with Watch Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until spring 2014.

We know a lot of you are probably wondering: Why now? We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion keeps us motivated.

We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it.

After such a strong marketing campaign for Watchdogs, especially for its Next Generation launch features, this will come as sad news to many gamers today. Retailers only learned about the delay at the same time as it was made public, so are now trying to work out what to do about pre-orders especially bundles that included Watchdogs.

 

The-Crew

Ubisoft have also confirmed that The Crew will not be released any earlier then April 2014 and possible not until September. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot gave this response after the announcement was made.

“Our long term goal is to win the next generation. The tough decisions we are taking today to fully realize the major potential of our new creations have an impact on our short-term performance.

We are convinced that, longer term, they will prove to be the right decisions both in terms of satisfaction for our fans and in terms of value creation for our shareholders. We are building franchises that will become perennial pillars of Ubisoft’s financial performance.

In a context of growing successes for mega-blockbusters, the additional time given to the development of our titles will allow them to fulfill their huge ambitions and thus offer players even more exceptional experiences

In Watch_Dogs, players will assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a new type of vigilante who, with the help of his smartphone, will use his ability to hack into Chicago’s central operating system (ctOS) and control almost every element of the city. Aiden will be able to tap into the city’s omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control systems such as traffic lights or public transportation to stop a chase, and more. The city of Chicago is now the ultimate weapon.
