Ubisoft announces new Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and more

21 May 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago Ubisoft released their end of year financial report for the period 2016-17 and it confirms what many gaming fans have been hoping for and that is some brand new games from the hugely successful and popular franchises, Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and The Crew.

The last financial period has seen huge success for Ubisoft with the release of For Honor, Watch Dogs 2 and the Tom Clancy titles Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege and The Division.

“Over the last three fiscal years, Ubisoft has – with remarkable success – created numerous new brands and rebooted Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon. These successes have strengthened our visibility for the coming two fiscal years, with a line-up of releases principally comprised of established franchises.  In 2017-18 we will see the exciting returns of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and South Park,” said Yves Guillemot, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. »

Newswire: Alec Baldwin explains his cold war against “scrawny little man” Harrison Ford

6 April 2017 10:56 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It doesn’t take a close read of Alec Baldwin’s new, dishy memoir Nevertheless, to notice the thinly-veiled animosity he holds for for Harrison Ford, who replaced him as Jack Ryan following The Hunt For Red October. As Baldwin tells it, he had no idea that he was being ousted from the Tom Clancy franchise, and Ford was curtly unsympathetic to his situation. Ford had dropped out of a film with Hunt director John McTiernan in order to play the part that Baldwin had once had. “John told me he spoke with Ford and asked if he was aware that Paramount was in active negotiation with me,” Baldwin writes. “Ford’s reply, according to John, was ’Fuck him.’” (For what it’s worth, this is not the first time that Baldwin has shared this story, and studio exec David Kirkpatrick has disputed his account of how things went down »

Mass Effect: Andromeda Holds No.1 In UK Charts For Second Week Running

Mass Effect: Andromeda has once again secured pole position in the UK charts, having now spent two weeks at No.1. BioWare’s sci-fi RPG has denied Ghost Recon: Wildlands from retaking top spot after it held its position there for two weeks prior to the former’s launch, although Ubisoft’s open world tactical shooter still maintains a more successful launch period over Andromeda, itself currently the third-biggest of 2017.

While it might be surprising to see the follow-up to Mass Effect 3 enjoying such success following its mixed critical reception and the highly-publicized controversies surrounding its animation quality, Andromeda‘s core gameplay is still a joy to experience if you can look past its flaws, many of which will hopefully be rectified soon, if BioWare’s message to fans last week is anything to go by. »

Rob Leane Mar 31, 2017

The current console kings are the PS4 and the Xbox One. Here are the best prices...

When I was a kid, the rival consoles of the hour were the Sega MegaDrive and the Nintendo 64. Those days are now behind us (although you can still buy those classic consoles), with the 'which one do you have?' console conflict now firmly being a face-off between Sony and Microsoft.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Debuts At No.1 In UK Charts, Third Biggest Launch Of 2017 So Far

The results are in for this week’s big hitters in the UK charts, revealing that Mass Effect: Andromeda has managed to take pole position in its debut week, although it hasn’t quite managed to surpass what’s gone before. The third biggest launch of 2017 so far, Andromeda has, some would say, defied the odds of its mixed critical reception to replicate what its predecessors Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 managed to achieve, but it’s not all good news – both of those titles managed to do more overall sales than Andromeda, meaning BioWare’s latest entry sits at third in overall week one performance for the series, only beating the original game.

As for the rest of this week’s chart, Andromeda‘s placement, of course, means that Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: »

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Holds No.1 In UK Charts For Second Week Running

Following on from its debut last week at the top of the UK games chart, Ubisoft’s tactical open world shooter, Ghost Recon: Wildlands has held onto its position for the second week running. The biggest week one launch of the year so far, Wildlands is second only to The Division as Ubisoft’s most successful game launch in the same period and, assuming it manages to stay there for an additional week, will achieve what one of 2017’s other big multi-platform releases – Resident Evil 7 – didn’t quite manage to do earlier this year.

As for the rest of this week’s top 10 entries, not much has changed. Lego Worlds climbs one spot to second, pushing PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn down to third place, while Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V maintains »

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands launched last week for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and despite it having rolled out amidst the launch of a new console and faced with stiff competition from two critically acclaimed titles, the open world tactical shooter has managed to take pole position in the UK charts in its debut week.

Not only that, but according to GfK Chart-Track, it’s officially the biggest launch of 2017 so far, beating out the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Of course, given that – unlike Wildlands – both aforementioned titles are exclusive to a single platform, the revelation shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise, but it didn’t quite manage to attract the same level of critical praise as those titles, »

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands Review

7 March 2017 3:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Ubisoft first revealed Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands many moons ago, it was easy to describe the action that was shown as being a kind of mash-up of the more tactical gameplay that you’d expect from earlier titles in the Ghost Recon franchise and the open world goodness of one of the publisher’s other franchises: Far Cry. Now that the game is here, it’s safe to say that description is pretty accurate and on the surface, it’s a combination of gameplay styles that most definitely has potential.

In Wildlands, Ubisoft tasks you with taking down El Sueño, who – along with the main players in his Santa Blanca cartel – has turned the country of Bolivia into one massive drug-producing state where everyone is involved one way or another with ensuring the cartel’s ongoing success. Taking control as the leader of a four-man team, »

Peter Fonda Joins The Cast Of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

3 March 2017 2:58 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Right now, Paramount TV/Amazon’s upcoming drama, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, is an unknown quantity. It’s being billed as a reinvention of the classic Clancy hero, who first appeared on screen in The Hunt for Red October played by Alec Baldwin and has been already been reinvented on three separate occasions by Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine.

This latest take brings the character back to basics, giving him an updated origin story as an ambitious CIA analyst who discovers a pattern in terrorist communication. Investigating this launches him into a geopolitical pressure cooker, confronting a new brand of terrorism that current security services are ill-equipped to deal with. So yeah, it’s pretty boilerplate Tom Clancy so far.

Paramount TV previously announced the casting of John Krasinski as Ryan, with Abbie Cornish appearing as an ongoing love interest. Now, Peter Fonda has been confirmed as »
