Ubisoft just dropped its first full-length trailer for Far Cry 5, which is, poignantly enough, set in rural Montana and focuses on a religious cult that's been "harvesting the souls" of the local populace.Read More
Watch Dogs 2 fails where it matters most, trotting out a series of crushingly repetitive missions that never comes close to making you feel like a hacker extraordinaire.Read More
Yes, digital distribution methods for PC aside from Steam do exist, but the competition is tough, and people need incentives to jump aboard. Right now, game developer Ubisoft has a promotion for their Uplay PC platform that might catch your eye: They're giving away Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time for free, in addition to six more free games to be announced in the coming months.Read More
Ubisoft's conference was really all over the place, wasn't it? It started off pretty extra (as the youths say).Read More

After the positive commercial success of Tom Clancy's The Division, it should be no surprise that developer Ubisoft is already looking to adapt the story into a film. What's intriguing is who they currently have tapped to star--actor Jake Gyllenhaal.Read More
Obviously it's performance art intended to evoke Plato's Allegory of the Cave. Right?
For the past three hours, Ubisoft has live-streamed a static image of a cave painting on YouTube, and tens of thousands of people have watched as the image crawls outward to reveal ... nothing much. At least, not so far.Read More
Imagine not upgrading your PC for 16 years because of a fragile, artificial life that depended on Windows 98 to exist. This was the kind of dedication that enveloped the Petz subculture, a little-known piece of video game history that inspired hundreds of women to get creative with gaming.Read More
"And over here is the Ubisoft roller coaster of game quality!" (<3 Ubisoft.)
Rayman Raving Rabbids was one of the best things to come from the Nintendo Wii—not really because the game was incredibly great, but because the Rabbids are so darn entertaining. Well, Ubisoft is putting that franchise and others to good use in the real world as they prepare to open their very own theme park. (Hopefully rides won't all be waggle-based.)Read More

Glitch city and they're the mayor!
Remember when Ubisoft was all, "We can't include women in Assassin's Creed Unity because they're too hard to animate?" Tons of nightmare-inducing glitches from the new game prove that women are, in fact, much to difficult for the game studio to render—like the above image, from Reddit.Read More

Meow is the moment of your demise!
Sure, Assassin's Creed games are pretty fun, but you know what would make them better? The same thing that makes literally everything better: kitties. Keep in mind, though, these are definitely all boy cats. Lady cats, their bone structure is just too hard to animate. I heard they did hire a parkour expert to train the boy cats, though, so there's that.Read More
Apparently women are easier to animate if you only use two and a half dimensions.
It's no secret that AAA games have a problem with both gender and racial diversity, and that Ubisoft in particular has gotten a lot of heat for saying some dumb things about their inability to address these concerns in their Assassin's Creed series. But it's okay, guys! Now they've announced a new game featuring a woman of color! Sure, it's a sidescroller that you can only play if you buy it as DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity, but—wait, no, that's still frustrating.Read More
That's the second biggest monkey head I've ever seen!
