"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

As part of Microsoft’s E3 Conference, a new gameplay trailer for Tom Clancy’s The Division has been released, which we have for you here..

The game, long anticipated by the industry and fans alike, is set in a cold, bleak and desolate world, continuing the intensly popular apocalypse theme of recent years. A “last resort” squad, named The Division, are our main focus as people try to survive a virus of some kind.

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. »

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, »

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.

Sony Announces Every PS4 Game For 2015

16 February 2015 5:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the most frequent complaints that has been lobbed against the PlayStation 4 in the past year or so has been the lack of games, especially exclusives. Last fall in particular it was a visible problem as the rival Xbox One had several well-regarded exclusives hit such as "Sunset Overdrive," "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" and "Forza Horizon 2" on top of the cross-platform Aaa titles that both consoles share.

In early 2015 though the tables have turned to some degree with the imminent release of Ps exclusive titles like "The Order 1886" and "Bloodborne". With Sony now seemingly fighting back, they've done something unexpected - publishing a complete list of all their upcoming 2015 game releases.

Many still don't have specific dates yet, dates which aren't expected to be announced until around the time of the big conventions closer to mid-year, but here's the list as it stands now.

Ubisoft Confirms 2015 Lineup Including Rainbow Six

12 February 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ubisoft revealed today that three games including Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Assassins Creed, and The Division will be released this year!

Ubisoft is hosting a conference call at the moment and has revealed all three games are on schedule for this year. Rainbow Six Siege is the most exciting title for me, and it even made out most anticipated games of the year list!

Others may be excited about the somewhat secretive The Division, but what we have seen looks amazing! Of course Assassins Creed falls in line with their yearly release of the franchise.

Ubisoft also noted that sales are up 60% thanks to the success of new IP's such as Watch Dogs. They hope The Division carries this success and plan to utilize them even further. Ubisoft also noted that with strong next generation console sales they expect software sales to continue increasing with the install base. »
