Games with Gold for July have finally been announced and it has certainly got some people worked up and debating about whether it is a good month or bad month (personally I think they are all free games so every month is a good month).
For the Xbox One, Gold members can download Banner Saga 2 which was only released in April this year and so is a relatively new title. It’s been getting some quite good reviews all round so is definitely one to give a try. This will be available free throughout all of July. From July 16th until 15th August gamers will be able to download Tumblestone, a puzzle game with a unique spin on a familiar genre.
Xbox 360 players who subscribe to Gold will be able to download Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 from 1st July until the 15th and from the 16th July to »

As June draws to a close and E3 becomes a distant memory, Microsoft has unveiled the software headed to Games With Gold for the month of July.
From Friday, July 1, Xbox Live Gold members will gain access to four new titles and, thanks to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature, all of the newcomers will be playable via Microsoft’s current-gen consoles.
Kicking things off for those on Xbox One is The Banner Saga 2, Stoic Studio’s tactical RPG that will be available to download for the entire month of July. Come July 16, though, it’ll be joined on the Games With Gold roster by Tumeblestone, a “new competitive indie puzzler from The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild” that draws inspiration from genre classics in the vein of Tetris and Puyo Puyo.
As for Xbox 360, those still in possession of the last-gen hardware can look forward to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow »

Earlier this week, developer Ubisoft updated their terms and conditions for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, allowing them to permanently ban any user caught cheating, modding or hacking – even if it’s the user’s first offense.
In regards to the decision, Ubisoft made the following statement on the official Rainbow Six Siege website:
The presence of cheating in the game is something we take very seriously, and is a priority on the development team. This update is one step among many that we are working on to better engage with the community on this issue.”
Ubisoft admits that due to the nature of the gameplay, such as the possibility of headshots through walls or other environmental obstacles, differentiating between legitimate instances of cheating and unfounded suspicions of cheating can be challenging. However, they are in the process of “assessing and testing several client-side anti-cheat options” to be used »

Jake Gyllenhaal didn’t fare very well with the big screen adaptation of Ubisoft’s video game Prince of Persia, but that’s not stopping him from teaming with the video game company for another movie based on one of their recently popular titles. Tom Clancy’s The Division is getting turned into a movie, and Gyllenhaal is attached […]

Jake Gyllenhaal, undeterred by his last outing in a film based on a Ubisoft video game, is attached to produce and star in a big screen adaptation of The Division. Gyllenhaal's last foray into this territory was the Disney misfire known as Prince Of Persia. That film came out on Memorial Day weekend in 2010, and only managed to come in third- behind Shrek Forever After and Sex And The City 2, while on its way to a subpar $336 million worldwide haul that all-but insured that the film wouldn't lead to the Pirates Of The Caribbean-style franchise Disney hoped it would.
Regardless of that, Gyllenhaal is back in business with Ubisoft, and The Division will be based on the studio's fastest-selling game ever. The Tom Clancy game, which made the developer $330 million in just five days, is set in a dystopian New York City that's been ravaged by a smallpox outbreak. »

Actor will also produce big-screen version of record-breaking third-person shooter, his second gaming tie-in after 2010 flop Prince of Persia
Gyllenhaal will also act as producer on the project, according to Variety. The video game, a third-person shooter, is gaming giant Ubisoft’s fastest-selling product, making $330m (£229m) within five days of its release in March.

It's been six years since Jake Gyllenhaal lit up screens worldwide in his portrayal of the titular character in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. But seeing as that film's reception was, at best, lukewarm, one can't blame him if he never set foot on the set of a video game adaptation again. Yet here we are, almost a decade later, and Gyllenhaal is ready to take the lead in the film version of Tom Clancy's The Division. The news broke in a hot item this evening, courtesy of Variety, which saw Gyllenhaal not only named as the star of the film adaptation of one of this year's best selling video games, but also as a producer. This is Ubisoft's third would-be film franchise based on one of their products, as Michael Fassbender's Assassin's Creed is set to be released this »
Jake Gyllenhaal is attached to produce and star in a movie based on the popular “Tom Clancy‘s The Division” video game by Ubisoft, TheWrap has learned. The studio has yet to hire a writer to adapt the online-only video game into a screenplay. Released on March 8 this year, the game was an instant hit with the highest number of first-day sales on record for the gaming company.

Since Tom Clancy’s The Division‘s second major update brought a number of new bugs and glitches with it when it arrived this week, Ubisoft are having to enter another maintenance period. More server downtime is planned for tomorrow (May 27), with one of the biggest issues being a High Value Target bug.
Some general server maintenance had been carried out earlier today, but it’s become apparent that even more downtime is required to address some of the main known problems. This latest session will fix an error where players would get the reward from High Value Target bosses even after failing the mission.
The break in server coverage while the maintenance goes ahead will be starting at 2 Am Pst / 5 Am Est, and is expected to conclude two hours later. From here, it’s hoped that players will be able to access the game as normal, and that the »

The second major update to Tom Clancy’s The Division arrived yesterday, bringing the previously announced Conflict content to the game. For those who don’t know, Conflict is a part of Ubisoft’s post-launch plan which aims to keep the experience fresh for players by introducing new, ongoing content that takes place following the endgame.
This second free update offers a new incursion, extra High Value Targets and various other features to make the journey through mid-crisis New York more challenging and intense than ever. The full patch notes can be found at the game’s official site, but here are the gameplay highlights in brief form:
· New Incursion “Clear Sky”: This new incursion takes players to Columbus Circle area, where they face an overwhelming force of Rikers who are now in full control of the Manhattan airspace. Players need to team up to take back »

Ricky Church on whether movie studios are ruining shared universes…
In the years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe began and its massive success at the box office has come a tidal wave of news that studios seek to emulate Marvel’s idea of a shared universe for their franchises. For some studios, namely Warner Bros. with their DC Comics properties, that is to be expected, but other studios seem to be going a little too far with the shared universe concept. With so many studios set to milk this new concept for all its worth, will it instead have a negative effect and lead to the downfall of shared cinematic universes?
For companies like Marvel or WB, it makes sense for them to work on a large cinematic universe where their stable of characters interacts with one another on a near constant basis. After all, both comic publishers have had »

Ubisoft have announced the second of two free updates for Tom Clancy’s The Division due to arrive on 24th May on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
The update, titled ‘Conflict’, will add the new incursion ‘Clear Sky’. Set in Columbus Circle, Clear Sky will see players fight escaped Rikers convicts in an effort to take back an abandoned anti-aircraft missile site.
This latest update will also add high value targets which must be eliminated within a limited amount of time. Players will be able to get these high value targets from an officer at base but will only get one opportunity to take out each one. Players will need to ensure they have the correct equipment and gear before tackling these missions.
Finally, there have been some new changes to The Dark Zone. Players will now need to keep an extra special eye on their loot as there will »

This afternoon, Ubisoft took to the Internet to reveal its free Conflict update for Tom Clancy’s The Division. The second free add-on for the massively multiplayer shooter, it exists as the game’s final free-of-charge update.
When it’s released near the end of this month, Conflict will infuse quite a bit of new content into the much talked-about title, including additional gear, high-value targets to take out and a new Incursion challenge called Clear Sky. It will also give agents the ability to hijack others’ loot by cutting extraction ropes.
“Pitting Division Agents against Rikers, Clear Sky challenges you to take back a formerly Lmb-controlled anti-air missile site, restore safe passage to the skies over Manhattan, and reclaim supply drops stolen by Rikers,” states a post on the UbiBlog.
As for the high value targets:
“The Hvt officer inside your base of operations will provide you with a list of these targets, »

In the new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division update, Ubisoft introduces us to all of the new features from Update 1.2 Conflict! Take a look
Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division has, arguably, been a success for the French studio. Before the game released, it broke records set by rival Destiny and afterward continued that momentum with entertaining gameplay experiences.
Despite its relative success, though, the game has gotten repetitive and uninteresting. Realizing that this would be an eventuality, Ubisoft has done something that Activision took too long to do with Destiny, release new content.
Today, we see what the new Year One update Conflict has to offer fans. From new classes to new hijacking features to a brand new Incursion called Clear Sky, Ubisoft is hoping that this new content will rejuvinate gamers who've lost interest with the post-outbreak game.
Tom Clancy's The Division Update 1.2 Conflict will be free to download, »

Buoyed by Sony’s largest ever marketing campaign for a new PlayStation release, much to the surprise of no one it was Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End that reigned supreme in this week’s UK all-formats charts. Quite the feat, considering Naughty Dog’s action blockbuster launched exclusively for PlayStation 4.
Not only that, but week-one sales of Drake’s final journey were up 66 percent over Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, meaning Uncharted 4 was a shoo-in for the number one spot in this week’s charts. Beating out fellow newcomer Doom, as with each Chart-Track post, no specific figures were disclosed.
Mind you, across Xbox One and PC’s platform-specific top 10, it was id Software’s hellish reboot that clinched the coveted top spot. Below, you’ll find a rundown of this week’s all-formats chart, where Black Ops 3, The Division and Insomniac’s rebooted Ratchet & Clank round out the top three. »

Players will be unable to access all features of Tom Clancy’s The Division for a while tomorrow, as the game will be taken offline for server maintenance. Depending on your time zone, you’ll find that the servers will shut down Thursday, May 12 at 09:00 Am Cest, 03:00 Am Edt or 00:00 Am Pdt respectively.
Ubisoft announced the maintenance period at their official forums, and explained that they are expecting the downtime will last for approximately three hours. It’s also worth noting that the servers will be taken offline in relatively quiet periods.
Sadly, it’s been confirmed that this period is strictly for server maintenance, and that no surprise updates are going to spring up once the work is done. Ubisoft’s post stated that “there will be no game changes during this maintenance.” The developers have had to work tirelessly to squash a number of exploitable »

Ubisoft have recently been talking about the next update for Tom Clancy’s The Division, with a shift in focus on the cards along with some important changes. At present, it sounds as though the 1.2 update will add a new Dark Zone Bracket, as well as some more “generous” loot drops within all sectors.
The developers say that they are aware of an unfortunate amount of focus currently being placed on crafting in The Division due to quality loot drops being so rare. But soon, when the next update goes live, this will all be changing.
More News From The Web
After the update, there will be less gear mod drops in favour of extra weapon drops. In addition, Hard Mode, Challenge Missions, Incursions and all Dark Zone Brackets will all offer the player better loot as well. The hope is that this will provide a greater incentive for people »
