Ubisoft’s Personal Gaming Assistant Is A Great Idea That’s Not Quite There Yet Ubisoft’s Personal Gaming Assistant Is A Great Idea That’s Not Quite There Yet

Ubisoft’s personal gaming assistant, previously only available in Canada, is now out worldwide. Its name is Sam, a nod to Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell fame, although Michael Ironside doesn’t do the voice (sorry, Stephen). Embedded in the Ubisoft Club app, Sam sounds like any other AI that might reside on your phone,…

Switch Monopoly AI Refuses To Lose Switch Monopoly AI Refuses To Lose

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being about to win a video game and then having your opponent disconnect to deny your proper victory. It’s been going on in games for so long that we even have a special name for it: rage quitting. As humans, our emotions can get the better of us, but computers are supposed to…

Far Cry 5's first DLC, Hours of Darkness, arrives June 5 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You play as Wendell Redler back during the Vietnam War, tasked with saving his fellow squadmates. The two others, Lost On Mars and Dead Living Zombies, are set to release in July and August respectively.

We Just Got A Good Star Trek: The Next Generation Video Game We Just Got A Good Star Trek: The Next Generation Video Game

This week Star Trek: Bridge Crew got a big expansion called The Next Generation DLC. As a diehard TNG fan, I love it. The base game did a good job simulating the duties associated with serving on a starship in the Trek universe, and The Next Generation DLC adds a few improvements.

This Week In The Business: Fewer, Bigger, Better, Later This Week In The Business: Fewer, Bigger, Better, Later

QUOTE | “What we see now is we can launch games whenever we are ready and whenever we want, just because there’s a good appetite for new products on the market thanks to the fact that there are less big games coming to the industry. That gives us the possibility to choose when to launch, because it’s really the…

For Honor’s Season Six update is now live. It adds some new skins and weapons to collect as well as reworks to the Orochi and Peacekeeper classes. There’s also a new map, Beachhead, and more importantly, a new event called The Rite of Champions that runs until May 31.

Ubisoft’s pirate game Skull & Bones is delayed to next fiscal year, the publisher said today—it’ll now come out somewhere between April 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020. “Ubisoft has decided to give itself more time to develop Skull & Bones to offer players an even more engaging experience,” the company said in a press…

The next season of Rainbow Six Siege will be Operation Para Bellum taking place in Italy, Ubisoft announced today. This confirms earlier leaks to that affect. The game is also getting a new Pick & Ban feature, an Echo buff, changes to dropshotting, and a new counter defuser animation, as well as an all new map.

For Honor’s season six update arrives May 17 and includes a new map called Beachhead and reworks to the Orochi and Peacekeeper classes. It also adds a “Visual Collection” feature to streamline gear customization. The game is free to play this weekend on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

For Honor's Creation Ended With A Behind-The-Scenes Break-Up For Honor's Creation Ended With A Behind-The-Scenes Break-Up

The most interesting moment from a new documentary about the making of For Honor comes just over 70 minutes in when the team at Ubisoft Montreal is celebrating the game getting certified on Xbox One and PS4. Speeches have been made and the champagne is flowing freely when the game’s then creative director Jason…

Far Cry 5 Has A Shovel Gun Now, Because Of Course Far Cry 5 Has A Shovel Gun Now, Because Of Course

Far Cry 5 has been out for just over a month now, and while there still hasn’t been any word on when its story-based DLC will arrive, the game has been getting weekly events and new online multiplayer maps. With the addition of this week’s event, “White Collar Job,” Far Cry 5 now has its first meme gun as well.

Rainbow Six Siege’s latest patch goes live today on PC and May 2 on consoles. Version Y3S1.2 introduces a number of tweaks, especially to the drone operator Lion, whose scan ability has been significantly weakened. Light machine guns, on the other hand, have had their damage output boosted.

The Division’s Developers Keep Fixing ‘Weird Doors' The Division’s Developers Keep Fixing ‘Weird Doors'

If you looked closely at the patch notes for a Division update from way back in November 2016, you would notice an odd sentence: “Fixed a Weird Door.”

Far Cry 5 gets its next patch tomorrow when the game goes down for maintenance at 9:00pm EDT. Title Update 5 fixes a number of bugs, including several we’ve written about including the never-ending credits loop and Mary May not spawning in the truck. It also mentions re-balancing some of the weapons.

Far Cry 5, One Month Later Far Cry 5, One Month Later

Far Cry 5 has been out for a month. Its big open world based in a fictional Montana has been picked clean by millions of people. Collectively they’ve caught lots of fish, thrown millions of sticks of dynamite, and been sprayed by a lot of sneaky skunks. Publisher Ubisoft has been contributing weekly live events, new…

Assassin’s Creed Origins, Six Months Later Assassin’s Creed Origins, Six Months Later

Half a year ago, Ubisoft released Assassin’s Creed Origins. It was in some ways the most ambitious Assassin’s Creed game ever made, and in other ways noticeably less ambitious than its predecessors. In the months since then, Origins has become considerably more interesting.

It Took A Year, But Ghost Recon: Wildlands Finally Got Splinter Cell’s Goggles Right It Took A Year, But Ghost Recon: Wildlands Finally Got Splinter Cell’s Goggles Right

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a massive game, filled to the brim with high-tech military weapons and gadgetry. One thing the game did not have, however, was a set of properly functioning night-vision goggles. Until now.

Some Far Cry 5 Players Are Stuck In A Never-Ending Credits Loop Some Far Cry 5 Players Are Stuck In A Never-Ending Credits Loop

Far Cry 5's latest patch released this week on consoles. Although it addressed a number of minor issues with online multiplayer, mission progression, and overall stability, it doesn’t appear to have addressed one unique and particularly pernicious bug where some players who complete the game get stuck in a…

Far Cry 5's Helicopters Do Not Suck Far Cry 5's Helicopters Do Not Suck

Video game helicopters are usually difficult to control and not half as enjoyable to fly as they look in real life (or in the movies!). So I want to give a special shout-out to Far Cry 5, which for the first time I can think of in the 3D era has made flying a helicopter fun as hell.
