Ubisoft are one of the best AAA studios bringing ‘indie-like’ games to the market.

In that vain, Ubisoft have announced Grow Home, a game where you play as botanically interested droid, BUD as… Read more »

Cap Blackard writes, The Kinect is a powerful tool, and no one knows how to wield it better than Ubisoft. In Shape Up actual fitness routines are transformed into sweat-inducing video game experiences that are both fun games and serious calorie burners. After filming this video we felt the burn!
By Phil Harris Nestled amongst the three console press conferences, Ubisoft and EA, take a chance to show their wares and its always worth picking out some of the highlights from E3. Every year EA Sports wheels out the latest version of all their franchises with enough hyperbole to fill twelve baskets. I’m a fan… Read more »
By Etienne Dubuc Free-to-play is clearly the economic model the video game industry has going on these days. While the biggest successes have come from those who were at the time lesser known company like Zynga and Riot, the major studios are now catching up. Ubisoft has tested the market with Ghost Recon Online and… Read more »
Ubisoft Motion Pictures are ready to start development on their second wave of films. That’s before even a single clapperboard has been… er… clapped on the set of the first slate.
“The way that we entertain is about to completely change.”
Ubisoft line up their third big film franchise.
French games publisher Ubisoft is to move into comics, with the publishing imprint Les Deux Royaumes (The Two Kingdoms). It’s first title, Assassin’s Creed, will be based on the game of the same name. Its first volume, Desmond, will be created by Eric Corbeyan and Djillali Difali, and published this November in France, Belgium, Holland,… Read more »
At one point this year, Watch Dogs was the biggest IP launch ever. That is weird to think about, because not many people are talking about it any more. The game seemed like the biggest deal in the industry at one point and then a week later, it was done. That could be impart to… Read more »
As you may have seen at the end of last year, I really love “Game of the Year”s. They are silly and asinine, but I can’t help myself. I love rewarding games, and looking back over the last 12 months to congratulate excellence has always been important to me. The Game Developers Choice Awards offer… Read more »
There was a weird story that came out on the tail end of last year, that Mega Bloks were going to be making several Assassin’s Creed sets. This was weird because at the time, Ubisoft explained they wanted to bring Assassin’s Creed to a younger audience that couldn’t play the games. It’s important to point… Read more »
All things considered, I did actually enjoy Assassin’s Creed Unity a fair bit. It didn’t build on any of the great ground work put down by Black Flag and it infamously had/has technical issues, but I did generally enjoy my time with the game. That’s why I’m interested in seeing what the Dead Kings DLC… Read more »
I really have a love/hate relationship with Assassin’s Creed. It’s a ton of fun, the time periods are generally interesting and they’ve done several really intriguing things with the story in the past. On the other hand, it represents everything wrong with AAA gaming right now. Ubisoft strive to make a new sequel every single year… Read more »
Far Cry 4 is certainly a lot of fun to move around and shoot people in. The world of Kyrat is bustling and full of life that feels like it goes on whether you are there or not. For me, it was the real star of the game with the story falling quite short of… Read more »
The ACBD have published their annual run down of the French-speaking comic book marketplace. Calling it a year of contradictions, they point to more comics being published but print runs being down, more publishers, but also a greater consolidation of sales on the bigger publishers, the comics economy grows but the standard of living for… Read more »
