If there’s one thing recent Far Cry villains are known for – other than their pomp, it’s that they disappear for most of the game. Ubisoft decided to reveal Far Cry 6 to the world in a similar way to how the series’ recent games have debuted: with a short cinematic that introduces the game’s
If you’ve ever dreamt of receiving your very own Super Smash Bros. invitation, or perhaps staging your own character reveal video at home, this new gift set from My Nintendo would come in super handy. As you’d expect, the items you see below are sadly exclusive to the Japanese site, but if you happen to
UK chart data is now in for the week ending 11th July, revealing that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is back up into second place. The game managed to sneak ahead of PS4’s The Last of Us Part II this week, also keeping some of Switch’s other most popular titles – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and
By Sherif Saed, Monday, 13 July 2020 09:31 GMT Assassin’s Creed Valhalla won’t bring back the same quest divide seen in Origins and Odyssey. The story of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla follows an invading Viking and their flock, who arrive at the English Isles in search of a place to settle and more fertile lands. This
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I really like Project Winter, at least in theory. It’s a classic hidden role multiplayer affair, where you’re ostensibly Doing A Survival: there’s a bunch of you stuck somewhere arctic, trying not to freeze or starve
With all of the big reveals and news coming out of Ubisoft Forward, there’s never been a better time to get caught up on classic Ubisoft franchises ahead of our upcoming releases, thanks to some big discounts. Before taking a trip to ninth-century England in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, why not journey back to Ancient Greece
A fair few games in recent E3 showcases were conspicuously absent from today’s Ubisoft Forward stream: no Beyond Good & Evil 2, no Rainbow Six Quarantine, no Gods & Monsters, no Roller Champions, no Skull & Bones. And yet they found time to announce Far Cry 6. Given that they’ve all been delayed for extra
After leaking earlier this week, Far Cry 6 got not one, but two trailers during the Ubisoft Forward event. The first was a stylish title sequence, hinting at some of the themes and highlighting the many actors who took part in creating the upcoming game. The second is a cinematic trailer showing Giancarlo Esposito’s Anton
Ubisoft’s offer of Watch Dogs 2 for free if you watched today’s Ubisoft Forward stream today was meant to be a tempting little sweetener, but things broke. The servers seemingly overloaded, meaning that not only were many unable to sign into their Ubi accounts and become eligible for the giveaway, some people are complaining all
The rumours were rife, and Ubisoft promised that gamers would be given a decent showing at their all-digital Ubisoft Forward conference. And they delivered the goods too, confirming full release dates for three massive games that are likely to define both this current gen of gaming, along with the move into next-gen with Xbox Series
The official Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date was revealed during tonight’s Ubisoft Forward conference – it’s scheduled to launch on November 17, 2020.

The world has changed dramatically in the year 2054, with the invention of a virtual reality called Hyper Scape.
Ubisoft’s free-to-play battle royale FPS Hyper Scape today launched into open beta, after a short closed beta with invitations handed out on Twitch. As the genre goes, 100 players are running around a big map looting and shooting. Hyper Scape is pretty zippy as battle royales go, mind, with players bouncing from streets to rooftops

By Cian Maher, Sunday, 12 July 2020 21:25 GMT It was pretty obvious that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was going to have longboats, but the fact you can bring a cat companion sailing with you comes as a very pleasant surprise. Tonight’s Ubisoft Forward conference included a deep dive into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, showcasing loads of

Following a little leak this week, Ubisoft today formally announced Far Cry 6. The open-world FPS series is headed to the fictional tropical paradise of Yara, which is now in the grip of a dictator (played by Giancarlo Esposito off Breaking Bad) and his son. As the series winds on, I’m increasingly convinced a little
Ubisoft today announced a November 17th release date for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next in their open-world murder simulator series. The date leaked yesterday but shh. And pretending that we haven’t been watching great reams of leaked Valhalla gameplay all week, they very proudly released a video showing and explaining more of the game. I
By Kirk McKeand, Sunday, 12 July 2020 20:50 GMT Far Cry 6 is real and it’s coming next year. Ubisoft just showed the game off in a quick trailer during Ubisoft Forward, but we have some more details to share with you. The game has been in development for four years, headed up by Ubisoft
Every big video game conference needs a “and you can play it right now” moment. Today’s Ubisoft Forward event announced that Ubisoft’s battle royale, Hyper Scape, is moving into open beta today – meaning anyone on PC can play. During the technical alpha, players had to hope for a Twitch drop to get access, but
Ubisoft usually unveils its upcoming slate of games at a live press conference held annually during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June. With E3 being cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ubisoft didn’t make any announcements in June, and instead pushed back a month to hold a digital show called Ubisoft Forward, which
On July 15, a new form of help arrives in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. If your friends aren’t online or you don’t trust random players, you’ll be able to use A.I. teammates to join you on missions. The highly requested computer-controlled assistance arrives in Title Update 2.1.0, which is free and will be coming to PC,
I’m infiltrating a compound as an elderly spy armed with cloaking technology and high-level martial arts. It’s the perfect heist… until it isn’t. As a member of hacker group DedSec I’m trying to recruit an Albion Security pig to the cause – it turns out being a fascist is mentally draining and they’re looking to
Special thanks to Ubisoft for sponsoring this episode! Pre-order your copy of Far Cry 6 NOW!! ► https://ubi.li/9CPV2 The Far Cry series has a long history of charismatic and not so good leaders in their games. They are games with a deep dive into how bad leaders come into power… and how they stay there. Now, the games generally
Playing a big ol’ chunk of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla made me realise how much the series has changed since the first game in 2007. If you played Altaïr’s first adventure and then skipped straight to Valhalla, where big buff blonde viking Eivor is running around 9th century England, you probably wouldn’t realise they were in
The first thing that strikes me when I load into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s England is how natural and rugged it is. Forests, marshland, and rolling hills blanket the landscape. There’s barely a viewpoint in sight. I’m free to explore East Anglia in full, including Northwick, the most built-up town in the region. But even this
An island nation is in the grip of a brutal tyrant. Unrest simmers on the streets of the capital city, and escalating tensions will soon boil over into full-on revolution. This is Far Cry 6, coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox One on February 18, 2021 to cast you in the role of a
