Star Trek Beyond

British actress Lydia Wilson ("About Time," "Ripper Street") has joined the cast of the Justin Lin-directed "Star Trek Beyond" for Paramount and Skydance. The film is slated to open on July 8th next year.

Details of her role are being kept under wraps, not a surprise as the same is true of Idris Elba's villain role in the movie which is currently shooting in Canada. She's one of several new cast members this time around with others including Joe Taslim and Sofia Boutella. [Source: Variety]

Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft has announced that "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" has been delayed by a month and a half and will now hit stores December 1st rather than October 13th.

The reason for the delay is said to be due to adjustments and improvements being required across all game modes, most notably the co-op elements and interface navigation. The »

"Watch Dogs" Screw-Up Changed Ubisoft Policy

8 July 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest controversies in gaming last year was that of Ubisoft's "Watch Dogs," a game that stole the show with its astonishing first footage at E3 in 2012 and then was ridiculed for the major downgrades that it had undergone upon release.

In a new piece for The Guardian, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that due to all the fuss, the company has had to change its policy on pre-release promotional footage for a game:

"With E3 2015 we said, Ok, let's make sure the games are playable, that they're running on the target machines... When we show something, we ask the team, make sure it's playable, make sure gamers can immediately see exactly what it is. That's what we learned from the Watch Dogs experience – if it can't be played on the target machine, it can be a risk."

Talking about the downgrades and the backlash, Guillemot says »

"Three Days of the Condor" Series Still A Go

26 June 2015 8:22 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A few months ago came word of a TV series adaptation of Sydney Pollack's classic 1975 paranoid thriller "Three Days Of The Condor" for Skydance Productions.

Robert Redford starred in the original film as a low-level CIA analyst who returns from lunch to his work at a safe house, only to find all his colleagues murdered. He then goes on the run trying to find out the truth whilst evading those responsible.

In a new interview with Skydance CEO David Ellison and President of Production Dana Goldberg, the pair were asked by Collider how the show is moving along. Goldberg says:

"We started talking about the idea of Condor in general, and for all of the CIA thriller type movies that have been made, that just that word, you say Condor, and everybody immediately knows what you're talking about. You don't even have to say Three Days of. When you say Condor people go 'oh, »

Angela Bassett Reflects On "Green Lantern"

25 June 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Viola Davis may be playing beloved DC villain Amanda Waller in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" movie, but she isn't the first in the role on the big screen as Angela Bassett played the part in 2011's failed "Green Lantern" film.

Bassett recently spoke with IGN about her role in the upcoming video game "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" and briefly discussed her time playing Waller, a role over which she has no regrets:

"You know, I enjoyed working on that. Of course you wish it had been bigger and more successful. But you just don't know. I mean I know we put a lot of work in and I thought it was well done. You know, well-directed, acted, and cast. But, you never know what is going to just grab the audience and they won't let go. So, that particular one wasn't, but maybe it'll come back around.

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate Hands-On Preview [E3 2015]

19 June 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Love it or hate it, the Assassin’s Creed franchise is here to stay, and it’ll take us back in time to London’s Industrial Revolution when Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate launches this fall. And, while many will likely opt to pass on the series’ most modern outing yet because of its predecessor’s technical faults, those who do may very well end up doing themselves an injustice in the process. That is, if the whole game ends up being as great as Ubisoft’s E3 2015 demo proved to be.

Before we progress, I’ll be frank and reaffirm that I enjoyed Unity much more than the average person seemed to. In fact, I found it to be one of the better games in the series, which seems to place me in the minority. So, I was definitely looking forward to Syndicate

Loot, Customization And Online RPG Mechanics Given The Spotlight In New Dev Diary For The Division

11 June 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Tom Clancy’s The Division was arguably revealed far too soon, leading to a prolonged delay and intermittent marketing, Ubisoft is slowly getting the wheels in motion once more ahead of the post-apocalyptic shooter’s release next year.

With E3 looming on the horizon, the company has published a new Q&A session for the month of June, which features members of the creative team providing a visual explanation to fan queries. From The Division‘s loot system to character customization, the footage provides an insight into the mechanics lurking beneath the Mmo’s striking aesthetic.

Senior character artist, Emil Mujanovic, goes on to talk about the degree to which players will be able to customize their in-game avatars.

“We have a good system in place where we can actually customise regions of our gear. For instance, the chest piece has up to three variants we can change. There’s an outer layer, »

Ranking All 16 Michael Crichton Novels

11 June 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Jurassic World finally roars to life on June 12, it’ll mark the latest emergence of the dinos-run-amok scenario created by Michael Crichton in his 1990 novel Jurassic Park. While that book is probably the author’s most famous work, it’s also just the tip of his high-tech, high-concept, popular-thriller iceberg.Like his fellow superstar novelists Tom Clancy (military technology) and John Grisham (lawyers), Crichton had his own distinctive and incredibly page-turning shtick: meticulously researched settings that involve a crack team of experts combating a wild social or scientific breakthrough of some kind or another, be it a hungry T. rex or a sexually dominating female boss. (There’s a serious conservative streak running through his novels.) Crichton died at age 66 in 2008, which means we’ll never get to see what exotic adventures this intellectually curious and endlessly imaginative — if exuberantly pedantic — guy would make of, say, social media or »

Ubisoft Announces Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Release Date on PS4, Xbox One and PC

14 May 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Everyone who has missed Ubisoft's Rainbow Six franchise will be ecstatic to learn that Ubisoft has officially announced the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege release date on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC is set for Tuesday, October 13.

It has been 17 years since the original Rainbow Six first debuted and seven years since the last game in the franchise, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, was released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Rainbow Six Patriots was in development a few years ago but was ultimately scrapped for Siege.

Needless to say the wait has been long and at long last Rainbow Six is back with its first appearance on current-generation consoles.

As the game's name implies, executing "sieges" on enemy strongholds will play a key role in the game's narrative and strategy. Enemies will dig in deep when threats near requiring perfectly designed and executed sieges to get at them. »

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, which offers up new footage, but most importantly...a release date!

If you didn't catch the tail end of the trailer, Rainbow Six: Siege will be released October 13, 2015. You can pre-order the game on the official site, or any of the listed retailers, and you will get early access to the Beta. The trailer notes that a "Gold Edition" is also coming, but it is not listed on any of the retailer sites just yet.

It is listed on the Uplay store though. It costs $89.99, but doesn't detail exactly what it comes with. We are assuming a "season pass."

The Division delayed until 2016

13 May 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ubisoft's open-world shooter The Division is delayed once again, with its launch now scheduled for 2016...

The publishing giant may be intent on cranking out Assassin's Creed games almost as fast as we can play them - Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is now confirmed as this year's entry - but Ubisoft's taking its time over its open-world shooter, The Division.

Another game in its range of Tom Clancy games, The Division is set in an America teetering on the brink of chaos following a pandemic. The player's cast as a tactical agent whose task is to maintain a semblance of order in a devastated city and prevent the killer virus from spreading further.

First unveiled in 2013, The Division was originally scheduled for release last year, before its launch was pushed back to an unspecified date in 2015.

During a recent financial results announcement, Ubisoft announced that it's pushing back The Division once again »

Ubisoft’s Post-Apocalyptic Shooter The Division Pegged For Q1 2016

12 May 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate may be catching everyone’s eye following its official revealing earlier today, but such is the monumental size of Ubisoft that the French publisher also has another triple-a incubating in development: Tom Clancy’s The Division.

A post-apocalyptic, third-person shooter by trade, Ubisoft had initially slated The Division for a release later this year, though today brings word that the title is now on course for a release in the early stages of 2016. That’s according to the company’s financial reports, which state that the shooter will launch during Q1, 2016 – within the first three months of next year and before March 31, essentially.

All of us at Massive, Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment and Ubisoft Annecy want to ensure the game not only meets our high expectations but also those of our fans and players alike. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and »

Ubisoft Opens Up Registration For Rainbow Six Siege Beta

24 March 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much like all online-centric titles of late, Ubisoft is planning a closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege at some point this year, and has announced that players can register for their chance to partake in the bout of testing from today.

Granted, access is not guaranteed; over on the publisher’s official site, you’ll be asked to complete a survey, choose your platform of choice, and have your name thrown into the proverbial hat. But for those who want to reserve their spot in the upcoming beta for sure, Ubisoft has confirmed that players will get instant access should they pre-order the tactical shooter.

“Yes, you can now pre-order Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege to get access to the Closed Beta later on this year. Stay tuned for more information on the Closed Beta in the coming months.”

Rainbow Six Siege has already been the subject of internal testing at Ubisoft, »

Rainbow Six: Siege closed beta coming later this year

24 March 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A closed beta for Ubisoft’s upcoming Rainbow Six: Siege is coming later this year to PS4, Xbox One and PC and you can guarantee access by pre-ordering the game.

News of the beta became apparent when Reddit user j_dirty saw this poster at GameStop (thanks, vg247!).

While Ubisoft hadn’t announced a beta prior to this discovery, they disclosed earlier today to Videogamer that a closed beta is scheduled for later this year. They said: “Yes, you can now pre-order Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege to get access to the Closed Beta later on this year. Stay tuned for more information on the Closed Beta in the coming months.”

Update: If you don’t have a code for the closed beta, you can now sign up to go on the waiting list via the Uplay system here.

The game is currently in Closed Alpha.
