Despite the delay to 2015, Tom Clancy’s The Division made a big splash at E3 2014 with a new cinematic trailer that showcased the fall of New York City, as well as a second trailer that focused on the title’s gameplay. Now a little more than a month removed from that event, Ubisoft has released a new video that goes into a little more depth.
Filmed during E3, the UbiBlog interviewed The Division director Ryan Barnard, who spoke about one of the gangs players will face off against. Dubbed The Cleaners, these vicious thugs seek out infected areas in order to burn bodies and eliminate anyone they think may be carrying the disease.
In order to combat these enemies, players will need to upgrade and improve their skills and abilities. Upgrades will not be handled through a traditional class-based system, though, as characters will evolve based around play styles. So »

While Ubisoft had an absolutely stunning E3 this year, showing off their big-hitting titles like Assassin’s Creed: Unity and the newly revealed Rainbow Six: Siege, one game of theirs on everybody’s radar is Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Despite not getting that much exposure at the show this time around, we were treated to an excellent pre-rendered trailer that delved into the story behind the open-world, online RPG. Entitled ‘Take Back New York’, the trailer took us through the lives of a single family as they succumbed to the virus that eventually brought down New York.
To take back the city, Directive 51 sees a group of people called The Division returning to the decimated place to attempt to rebuild. To help explain some of the details, Ubisoft released a new trailer featuring an interview with The Division’s game director, Ryan Barnard. In it, Barnard talks more about the trailer, »

10:00 Am - Publishers Weekly: Behind the Digital Line
As digital comics have become a driving force of the medium, more publishers and creators have launched digital first lines of comics. How do publishers and creators deal with the unique properties of the web and tablet? How do readers react? Are they an evolution from webcomics or their own medium? And how will technological evolution affect storytelling as more choices arise? Pw's »

Tom Clancy once made a potent comment which defined why his writing was both unique and enticing: “The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.”
The renowned author’s legacy continues to remain in the minds of his avid readership, but his statement reaches out even further than his own remarkable ability for storytelling, and is perfectly applied into the video games which still carry his name.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege is the latest instalment in the Rainbow Six series, and from the moment it was revealed during Ubisoft’s E3 2014 press conference it immediately captured the attention of the public and hardcore fans of the franchise. It’s been six years since the release of Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 and we’ve had to endure the problems which hindered the development of Rainbow 6: Patriots, however Siege has officially replaced Patriots and will now »

Ubisoft announced in a blog post today that Ubisoft Quebec will be the lead studio on “a future Assassin’s Creed.” Previous entries in the popular franchise were typically handled by the publisher’s Montreal studio, with other studios providing assistance, so this is certainly an interesting alteration.
Formed in 2005, Ubisoft Quebec got its start developing low-profile titles such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Critical Hour and Open Season. However, the studio has since become a major factor in the Assassin’s Creed development machine. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood in 2010, the studio has provided assistance on each major iteration.
Managing Director Nicolas Rioux broke down the studio’s involvement in the series:
“Since 2010, our understanding of the franchise has increased each year. We were involved in Brotherhood. We were involved in Revelations. We were involved in Assassin’s Creed III. With AC III we were »

Jack Ryan has a rich history in the film world. With actors Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck portraying him over the course of 12 years, this popular literary thriller character—created by Tom Clancy—has been patriotically and heroically defending his country. Now, in a Hollywood beset and beleaguered by prequels, sequels, and sidequels it’s only inevitable that this character get a reboot of his own (Ryan’s second complete makeover, no less) and a chance at a brand new series of films for a new generation supposedly hungry for heroes—whether they be supernaturally gifted or not.

Niall rounds up all of the major announcements from all the major games companies at this year's E3, in case you missed it
So E3 is over for another year. Breathe. After a frenzied four days which saw the major hitters in the gaming industry showcase their future releases, now is a good time to take stock of the major news released during the press conferences at the beginning of the expo. Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA and Ubisoft all had their chance on the main stage to wow fans with exciting announcements and brand new footage of the year's upcoming releases.
While this year's set of conferences could arguably be described as solid rather than spectacular, gaming's biggest companies still demonstrated that they had some treats in store for us over the coming year. Without further ado, here is a breakdown of all the biggest gaming news that happened at E3 this year. »
There were no new consoles at E3 this year, no expensive new peripherals. Nothing, at long last, to distract from the videogames. And what games! The 2014 videogame megaconvention found the three major companies adjusting to a new kind of normal: a kinder-gentler Microsoft, a swaggery Sony, a Nintendo that suddenly realized it was time to throw a Hail Mary on the Wii U. Across the board, there was a sense of experimentation. Major developers iterated old franchises in new directions. Smaller developers made bold splashes with highly independent visions.
E3 lives in a vortex of hype. Most people only get »

Ubisoft has quite the collection of big hits these days, and this year's E3 showing was no different. Here are its announcements...
Kicking things off with a title as big as Far Cry 4, Ubisoft is clearly showing its muscle, and this year's E3 conference packed in some of the biggest games in the industry.
Despite the racial controversy surrounding it, Far Cry 4 looks very promising indeed, with another charismatic, and disturbed antagonist. This was followed by Just Dance 2015 and the mobile Just Dance Now.
Tom Clancy's The Division followed, with more story details, including the game's background via an impressive CG trailer. The Crew was then looked at, with more on the ambitious open world racer that goes from coast to coast in the Us with no loading screens.
Assassin's Creed Unity was, of course, a very big thing, and although the cynic in us may say it »
Microsoft has enthralled E3 with its latest press conference, but could it make amends for past mistakes?
You could say Microsoft had a lot of work to do this year at E3, and right from the off it was clear that it had listened to the fans, stating that this year's conference was all about the games. And, true to its word, that's what Microsoft's briefing delivered.
The expected selection of big releases, both first and third party were covered, including the always Microsoft-present Call of Duty, with a look at Advanced Warfare. Forza: Horizon 2 was shown, along with Evolve. Assassin's Creed: Unity was shown, looking every bit the next gen title, as was Dragon Age: Inquisition. Sunset Overdrive looked tasty, and we got another look at Fable Legends.
Despite not being quite as big as many may have thought, Project Spark was shown, promising more features, like co-op missions. »
Before closing out their conference, Ubisoft had one more game they wanted to show off — Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege. The demo begins with two teams and follows the team looking to rescue a hostage. Helicopters and police cars are seen all over a house and there is a clear crime scene taking place. The team then use a drone to scope out the house and locate the hostage in the kids room. The drone also sees the opposing team reinforcing walls and getting themselves prepared. The hostage looks toward the drone and says “help me” before being destroyed by one of the hostage takers.
The 5 vs. 5 mission begins with the team rappelling down from the roof and breaching through the windows. A firefight ensues and the demo shows that the house is completely breakable as walls are being blown to smithereens. After retrieving the hostage, the opposing team »

I think I may be the only one still on the fence about this game. It just seems super preposterous that New York would fall that fast in 3 weeks time. The anarchy shown looks like New York has been that way for years. Anyways here is the synopsis and an overly melodramatic trailer.
Developed by Massive Entertainment, The Division is a new game in the Tom Clancy franchise. Using the Snowdrop engine, it is an open world, multiplayer RPG game set in a world devastated by a deadly pathogen. Players will fight enemy factions, loot abandoned buildings and level up their player as they explore a ravaged New York City.
How did a civilian get a flamethrower?! This game still needs to convince me when it's released in 2015. »

Rainbow Six, one of the most reputable tactical shooters in the industry, has been on an indefinite hiatus for a considerable amount of time. Plagued with layoffs, tumultuous delays and entire in-game overhauls, many feared the Tom Clancy-inspired series had peaked. But today, Ubisoft dragged the beloved franchise back rather triumphantly into the limelight in the form of Rainbow Six: Siege, a tactical-based shooter due for release in 2015.
The game was formed from the ashes of Rainbow Six: Patriots, which, after its acclaimed debut in 2011, abruptly slipped off the radar, forcing the development team at Ubisoft Montreal to send the project back to the drawing board. Now, though, Rainbow Six: Siege will drop players into the über tense world of hostage situations, with two teams of five competing over the safety of an AI target. With a concentrated focus on close-quarters combat, Ubisoft’s reboot-of-sorts will retain many of »
