Teaming up with another bruised and bloodied player to take on For Honor’s General Tozen last night was one of the most satisfying things I’ve done in the game in a long time.

Ubisoft creative director Julian Gerighty is looking into the lifetime ban of Division player Matti Hietanen who created a photo mode tool for the game. “Love your work and would like to see more,” Gerighty tweeted. In response to defenses of Hietanen’s work as not being cheat-oriented, Gerighty said “I agree.”
At the beginning of the month a modder from Finland updated a program that lets players of the 2015 game The Division take jaw-dropping screenshots. On Tuesday of this week, just over a week later, he was informed by the game’s publisher that he’s been banned from the game forever.
Ubisoft says For Honor will get dedicated servers for PC on February 19, shortly after the season five update arrives. Unfortunately, console players won’t get dedicated servers until “soon after” with exact release dates to come later.
The Italian hacking group CPY announced today it finally cracked Assassin’s Creed Origins meaning people with pirated versions of the game will now be able to bypass its DRM protections.
Ubisoft today announced details on the Far Cry 5 season pass, and notably, it includes a free copy of Far Cry 3 for PS4 or Xbox One.

Rainbow Six Siege players aren’t happy after Ubisoft announced the game’s next event, “Outbreak,” will include character items that can only be found in special new loot boxes. As you might imagine, longtime players are not thrilled.
For Honor’s fifth “season” will arrive on February 15, Ubisoft said today. The update rebalances some classes, overhauls others, and most importantly implements the game’s new dedicated servers for what Ubisoft says will be more stable online play.
Bayek gets a really good new outfit in Assassin’s Creed Origins’ Hidden Ones DLC. I’ve played a few hours, and it’s a straightforward expansion so far. There’s a bit more armor to upgrade, three new regions to unlock, some new loot to chase, and a few new levels to earn. I’ll share some more thoughts once I’ve…
Assassin’s Creed Origins is an overwhelming game, full of upgrade trees and sidequests and all manner of optional stuff. It can be a lot to deal with. I’m here to help.
I don’t know what it is about Assassin’s Creed games that makes me want to complete everything. But here I am, 56 hours into my second time through Assassin’s Creed Origins, and I don’t want to stop until I’ve finished all the things.

If I had to sum up the last act of Assassin’s Creed Origins in three words, those three words would be, “Wait, there’s more?”
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is getting remastered and coming to Xbox One and PS4 on March 20.

It was also much better.

Virtual reality just lost another big exclusive. Ubisoft’s cross-platform starship simulator Star Trek Bridge Crew, one of my favorite games of the year, has been patched to be playable without VR.
