Ubisoft's posts - Japanese uPOST

Ubisoft’s snow sports game Steep is no longer coming to Switch, according to an official Steep Tweet. Steep was released in 2016 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC but also slated for Nintendo’s weaker hardware. The Tweet states the cancellation is so the team can “focus on bringing new live content and challenges” to existing…

For Honor’s seventh season went live today, including the addition of a new map and reworks to the Warden and Valkyrie classes. The update also adds new legendary gear, an additional 10 reputation levels, and Master and Grandmaster player ranks. Ranked duels will now be in rotation outside of tournaments as well. 

South Park's Newest DLC Is Dull And Dreary South Park's Newest DLC Is Dull And Dreary

The second of South Park: The Fractured But Whole’s two big expansions launched today, and just like the first one, it adds a new area, class, and buddy to the show’s perverse version of Colorado. Bring the Crunch is a bit longer than March’s From Dusk Till Casa Bonita, although it’s not nearly as fun.

Ghost Recon Wildlands’ new Rainbow Six Siege cross-over mission is now live in the game as part of this week’s free Special Operation 2 update. In “Operation Archangel,” more extra-judicial, paramilitary stuff goes down in Bolivia as you assist Twitch and Valkyrie in finding a missing operator.

Every Game Should Copy Rainbow Six's New Chat Moderation Every Game Should Copy Rainbow Six's New Chat Moderation

Earlier this year, Ubisoft said it would be implementing stricter moderation in Rainbow Six Siege to find and sanction players using hate speech. Recently, players have started noticing an uptick in bans being issued and have been discussing it on the game’s subreddit. A few even took to Twitter to complain.

Far Cry 5's Lost On Mars Is Another Disappointing Expansion Far Cry 5's Lost On Mars Is Another Disappointing Expansion

Is there life on Mars? On the surface Far Cry 5’s second DLC seems to answer in the affirmative. The red rock is bursting with armies of alien insects. Some are small. Some are big. Some fly around like Pterodactyls and harass you by spraying firey chemicals at you. As these encounters stack up, however, Far Cry 5’s…

Where Are Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time's Developers Now? Where Are Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time's Developers Now?

Who makes a game? And where do they go when it’s over? For approximately 150 people who worked on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the answer to the latter question can range from staying at Ubisoft to going indie to becoming a wedding photographer.

The Crew 2 Players Are At Least Happy With The Game's Car Customization Options The Crew 2 Players Are At Least Happy With The Game's Car Customization Options

On paper there’s a lot to do in The Crew 2. Ten hours in, my map is full of icons. Various races, skill tests, and other points of interest are sprinkled generously from Maine to Washington. Most of it gets boring pretty quickly, and the world itself feels barren and incomplete. That’s probably why so many players are…

Far Cry 5's second DLC expansion, Lost on Mars, hits next week on July 17. It’ll feature side-characters Nick Rye and Hurk trying to prevent an alien invasion by shooting stuff on the red planet with some new space-themed weapons and aircraft. The third DLC, Dead Living Zombies, arrives in August.

New For Honor Bot 'TheeLizardWizard' Pays Tribute To A Player Who Died New For Honor Bot 'TheeLizardWizard' Pays Tribute To A Player Who Died

Fatmooch69 has spent the last couple weeks searching for a bot in For Honor. The AI in question is a Raider, one of the game’s two-handed axe wielding vikings, called TheeLizardWizard. Fotmooch69 has enlisted other Reddit users to help him, asking them to share screenshots if they ever encounter it. That’s because…

Far Cry 5 Gets Photo Mode In Latest Update But Not Much Else Far Cry 5 Gets Photo Mode In Latest Update But Not Much Else

A little over three months since release, Far Cry 5 finally has a photo mode. I had issues with the game, but its sprawling, coniferous forests and beautiful Montana sunsets were not among them. A photo mode feels like a no brainer. Unfortunately, the rest of this update serves more as a reminder of everything still…

My First Hours With The Crew 2 Were Mostly Forgettable My First Hours With The Crew 2 Were Mostly Forgettable

Last night in The Crew 2 I drove from New Orleans to Manhattan in about 20 minutes. Behind the wheel of the free, workmanlike 2016 Mazda MX-5 the gamegave me to start, I zig-zagged between other cars because one, I was going 150 miles an hour and they were not; and two, narrowly avoiding collisions netted me 10 extra…

Ubisoft has finally fixed the deadzone issue in Far Cry 3 Classic Edition just in time for its standalone release today. It was my only major complaint when playing the port last month, with a lack of analog stick sensitivity making precise aiming extremely difficult. That’s no longer the case.

My Most Embarrassing E3 Encounter With A Gaming Celebrity My Most Embarrassing E3 Encounter With A Gaming Celebrity

I would like to tell you about a mortifying encounter I recently had with a very well known figure in video games. It’s a better story if you don’t know who it is until the end.

Castle Sieges Bring A New Level Of Strategy To For Honor's Multiplayer Castle Sieges Bring A New Level Of Strategy To For Honor's Multiplayer

For Honor is getting a free new mode on October 16 as part of the game’s Marching Fire update, and after getting a chance to try it at E3 it’s the only For Honor mode I want play. Inspired by games like Dota 2 and League of Legends, Breach is an asymmetrical siege mode with a bunch of little wrinkles that completely…

Assassin's Creed, Starlink, and Everything Else At Ubisoft's E3 Booth

Hello again. E3 is drawing to a close, but we have more video reports filed from the guts of the convention from our own Tim Rogers. This time, he’s taking a peek at the Ubisoft booth.

Beyond Good And Evil 2's Plan To Crowdsource Art From Fans Prompts Backlash Beyond Good And Evil 2's Plan To Crowdsource Art From Fans Prompts Backlash

Ubisoft is asking fans to contribute art and music to its upcoming game Beyond Good and Evil 2, with the promise of monetary compensation if their work is chosen. Fans are already diving in with gusto, but critics quickly pointed out the issues with asking people to do work for only the possibility of payment.

The Division 2 Is Political, Despite What Its Developers Say The Division 2 Is Political, Despite What Its Developers Say

The Division 2 shifts the setting from New York City to a ruined Washington D.C. While the gameplay aims to fix issues players had with the original, statements from one of the game’s creative directors about the narrative are frustrating. The goal, we’ve been told, is not to make a political statement, but in this…

Another day, another bunch of E3 press conferences. Let’s talk about them!

The Division 2 Feels Like An Apology To Those Burned By The Last Game

It’s clear the developers of The Division 2 have a long list of the grievances people had with first game, even though many of those problems were patched out during the game’s radical post-launch improvement. That wasn’t enough, and now they’re really pouring on the charm while making a sequel that is impressive to…
