Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Ubisoft Montreal’s For Honor – two of the more surprising announcements coming out of E3 – may not be releasing in 2016, after a Ubisoft representative declined to comment whether either title would release in the next financial year.
One glance at each respective pre-order page will tell you that both titles have been slated for launch next year across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, though the French publisher has stated it will only provide an update on the status of the pixelated pair when it has “more visibility.”

That’s according to Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez, who noted that “for the line-up of fiscal year 17, we didn’t comment about For Honor and Ghost Recon whether it’s going to be next year or not. We will do that when we have more visibility.” What this means is that For Honor and »

Aside from Gamescom and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at the beginning of September – 61 days, but who’s counting? – the video game industry is primed to recede into its annual summer lull now that Batman: Arkham Knight has been released. What better time to catch up on your ever-growing pile of shame, then?
That’s exactly the question Microsoft will be asking for the next couple of months with the self-proclaimed Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, which offers discounts on an array of heavy-hitters from the past two years or so, including Far Cry 4, Mortal Kombat X and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

We’ve written extensively in the past few days about our admiration for Unravel, Coldwood’s upcoming yarn-based plaformer looking to make an impression on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. As a peculiar, off-beat indie game, many were surprised to see it as part of EA’s press conference earlier this week, but the publisher has expressed an interest to explore more low-key titles in the vein of Martin Sahlin’s indie darling in the not-so-distant future. This is a company that isn’t always about sports games and blockbuster shooters, after all.
Speaking with Game Informer, Executive Vice President Patrick Söderlund touched upon the creative desire to push the boundaries with external teams such as Coldwood, and how he hopes providing the backing of a big publisher such as EA can provide genuine confidence in smaller projects.
For me, it’s about not necessarily where EA has been, but what we should become. »

First up, those hoping for some full frontal nudity from Tatum in the upcoming Magic Mike sequel will be disappointed but there's still lots on show, the actor revealed.
"I do not do full frontal but I can promise you when you're standing in front of a bunch of people in a very small thong it doesn't leave a lot to the imagination," he shared.
In similar territory, Tatum was asked whether his penis has a name, to which he replied: "Gilbert."
"No matter if you're a man, woman, cat, hamster, you will get lost in Matt Bomer's eyes," he proclaimed. »
Ubisoft’s E3 press conference came to close with the news of a brand new entry in the Ghost Recon franchise. The first console Ghost Recon game since 2012’s middling Future Soldier, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands introduced itself with an impressive reveal trailer that mixed CG story beats with pre-alpha gameplay footage.
Set in the Bolivian countryside of the not-too-distant future, the game will put the player in the role of a Us Special Forces Ghost who’s been sent into country to combat the malevolent Santa Blanca drug cartel. The third person shooter (which switches to first person when aiming down sights) offers multiple ways to achieve your goals. Stealth tech, vehicles, drones, and heavy weapons are all at your disposal, as is the tagging feature found in Far Cry and Splinter Cell.
Talk of unleashed chaos and parachute inserts into the game’s open world make »

Ubisoft has just revealed a brand new Ghost Recon and it's open world. Come check out the trailer!
The game is indeed open world as you have multiple approaches to every scenerio the game offers. It personally looks like Far Cry met Watch Dogs and we got something glorious out of it! The game can be played with 4 people and the environment will dynamically change based on the amount of players. Here's some more details and info from their press release:
Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® announced the development of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands, a new entry in the acclaimed Ghost Recon series and the franchise’s first open world title. Ghost Recon Wildlands is scheduled to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

He's directed movies such as "BloodRayne," "Alone in the Dark," "Postal" and "Far Cry," but at this point, German director Uwe Boll will be best known for his latest productions: YouTube videos in which he slams Hollywood and freaks out about his failed crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for "Rampage 3," the third in the "Rampage" series. Read More: Determined to Get Final Cut, Abel Ferrara Turns to Kickstarter to Fund 'Siberia' With three days left to go, Boll's campaign has raised just over $26,000 of its $55,794 goal. Frustrated with the tepid response, the filmmaker told movie fans to "fuck yourselves." He also lashed out at Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey, Jr. who, he said, are "laughing" at low-income families who shell out money to see "Marvels Avengers bullshit dirt." This campaign is Boll's third failed attempt to reach his target goal for the. »

Uwe Boll just went on a tirade against crowdfunding sources and Hollywood. His rage stems from not having one of his projects funded, which prompted him to condemn everyone for not supporting him but giving their money to films like Avengers: Age of Ultron. Yes, the man that butchers every video game adaptation he touches is trying to dictate what is and isn’t quality cinema. Check out the meltdown below for a good laugh…
Uwe Boll is responsible for such masterpieces as Bloodrayne and Far Cry. He has also tried to box critics that have disapproved of his films. To be honest, I’m going to miss this guy and his outlandish antics.

Ubisoft have announced that they will not be releasing another game on PS3 or Xbox 360, leaving the world of last gen gaming behind for good.
The news came to light after Ubisoft engaged in a financial talk with their investors. It seems that all parties have decided it would be better if the top developer stuck to creating content for PS4, Xbox One and PC formats from now on, with the exception of the Wii U game, Just Dance.
Fans of the developer’s flagship series, Assassin’s Creed, may be disappointed if they only own a last gen console, particularly seeing as Ubisoft have almost always released a last gen edition alongside any new releases.
However, this is far from the first time Ubisoft have explored the capabilities of the Xbox One and PS4. With a cross gen release for Far Cry 4 and two major Assassin’s Creed releases »

It’s a funny world when you fork out upwards of £400 for a console that actually has less functions than the one that thanks to the devaluing of technology post-release, is only a quarter of the price.
But here we are, the newest console generation is shaky at best both critically and commercially, and although titles like Bloodborne, Far Cry 4 and Shadow of Mordor are recommendable to those who’ve already plumped up the cash, there remains to be any real system-selling titles or features you can point to that justify the cost or time invested.
It really feels like they launched these things way too early, and especially in the case of a system that’s built from the ground-up to have copious online support and firmware that’ll constantly be getting updates and refinements – it only serves to paint a picture of Sony’s execs throwing their »

It has been another rewarding week for NetherRealm’s, Mortal Kombat X, as it succeed in fighting off Grand Theft Auto: V and Battlefield: Hardline for a second week running. The classic beat ‘em up delivered yet another knockout punch in the wake of last week’s record breaking release, which saw the franchise’s most lucrative UK launch ever.
Considering there have been next to no new releases – excluding the underwhelming Tropico 5, which came in at No. 18 in the top 40 – it is hardly surprising to see that very little has changed in the elite tier. Grand Theft Auto: V holds onto the second place spot, following its recent release on PC, and Battlefield: Hardline has also maintained last week’s standing in third place, continuing to lick its wounds following an abrupt end to the game’s four-week run at the top.
Despite no change in the first three positions, »

Fans of the Mortal Kombat series have certainly shown their dedication in the last week, sending the classic beat ‘em up’s latest reimagining, Mortal Kombat X, flying to the top of the UK games chart. Amongst the game’s fatalities were Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V and last week’s chart topper Battlefield Hardline.
Not only has Mortal Kombat fought its way to the top of the chart, it did it in record breaking style, recording the second biggest release of 2015 (behind Battlefield Hardline) as well as being the franchise’s most successful UK launch.
According to Gamespot, PlayStation 4 has accounted for a solid 61 per cent of the games overall retail sales, while Xbox One took a respectable 38 per cent. PC sales lingered unsurprisingly, claiming a measly 1 per cent of the games non-digital sales.
Despite losing out on a top place to Mortal Kombat, GTA V enjoyed a »

Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: I’m a huge supporter of Playstation Now.
Netflix, Spotify, Marvel Unlimited – show me a subscription service for content I want and I’ll show you my wallet. When it comes to film, TV, music and comics, roughly 90% of what I consume nowadays is streamed or downloaded. Physical media? Pah!
Games, obviously, are the sticking point. Sure, there’s digital downloads available on every platform (even Nintendo), yet it’s the one area I normally always go for the disc release. Why is that? Well, price plays a large part of it for starters. When I’m dropping £30-40 on a title, I want to really get my money’s worth. Whether this means trading it in against a future purchase or just sharing a game amongst friends, there’s not enough of an incentive right now to go fully digital for me. »

It won’t be long before players are setting foot in the mystical realm of Lemuria once more, if a Tweet by Ubisoft is to be believed.
That’s according to the company’s Patrick Plourde, Creative Director on Far Cry 3 and the driving force behind last year’s wondrous RPG, Child of Light, who revealed via Twitter that Ubisoft is working on more adventures set within Aurora’s serene universe.
Fans of Child of Light: There are very cool projects in process set in the Child of Light universe. More News soon. Stay tuned! #excited

Common sense would peg this nebulous tease as a confirmation of a direct sequel, though going off of Plourde’s comments, a potential spinoff set within the same world seems highly likely as well. Whether it adheres to the lore established thus far or breaks new ground, one thing »

EA games latest shoot em up Battlefield Hardline has held its ground on top of the all format UK games chart for a fourth week on the trot, despite a 56% drop in sales.
Battlefield Hardline held off stiff competition from its fellow EA creation Fifa 15, which climbed two places to second. GTA V dropped to third place after a 39% drop in sales, however it still managed to remain above Far Cry 4 and Activision’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Other notable changes in the charts include the Halo: Master Chief Collection and Forza Horizon 2 climbing their way up the listings after a boost in sales from each games Xbox One bundles. Minecraft: Xbox Edition has also found its way back into the top ten.
With the arrival of the new Mortal Kombat X due to happen on April 14th it seems Hardline may struggle to hold on to the number one place. »

One of the best platformers of recent years? Quite possibly. Simon explains why you should play Ori And The Blind Forest...
“We've been working on Ori And The Blind Forest for four years to craft something truly special” - so says the blurb on Moon Studios official website for Ori And The Blind Forest.
Not only is that job done, but it turns out to be quite the understatement.
Ori And The Blind Forest is a 2D platformer featuring the adventures of a spirit called Ori, and set in a forest where the once lush canopy and undergrowth have fallen under a mysterious blight. With no guidance or support, Ori must travel alone in search of answers - and a possible solution to the malady.
Taking on the role of the protagonist, you’ll be performing plenty of running about and jumping about the forest - as you might expect. »
From Software may have came out guns blazing with the release of the truly excellent Bloodborne, but it was Visceral Games’ Battlefield Hardline that retained the number one spot in the UK Charts, according to retail analyst Chart-Track.
As a matter of fact, the margin between the two was almost indiscernible in the grand scheme of things, with Bloodborne missing out on a chart-topping debut by a mere 22,500 units. Much like previous weeks, Chart-Track doesn’t factor in digital sales of any software listed below — speaking of which, here is this week’s top ten in full.
1) Battlefield Hardline
3) Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
4) Grand Theft Auto 5
5) FIFA 15
6) Dying Light
7) Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
8) Far Cry 4
9) Minecraft: Xbox Edition
10) The Order: 1886
While this is no doubt a major coup for Visceral Games and Hardline, especially when you consider that the game failed to emulate the launch-week sales of its immediate predecessor, »
