  2. The Assassin's Creed series has always been filled with side quests to complete alongside the main storyline, and these have grown especially prominent in the recent role-playing games like Origins and Odyssey. For Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, however, Ubisoft has completely changed its approach to side quests. In fact, they aren’t really in the game at all. Speaking to GameSpot just before Ubisoft Forward, narrative director Darby McDevitt explained that “world events” are included in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but the traditional side quest is “almost nonexistent.” There are longer story arcs to complete as part of the main questline, but extra activities you complete will happen more spontaneously and won’t necessarily be quests you have to seek out. This approach was chosen to fit the narrative, as the protagonist Eivor arrives in England as an invader rather than a native. Having quest-givers left and right would not make sense, as you’re still actively trying to make alliances. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article

  4. Giancarlo Esposito, perhaps best known for his role as the villainous Gus Fring on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, is playing the villain in Far Cry 6. The first trailer introduces his character, Anton Castillo, and gives us a look at how his relationship with his son will play into the game's plot. In an interview with Variety, below, Esposito (sporting an excellent, scraggly beard) dives into the character of Anton Castillo, and what makes him tick. He talks about the character's past, and how he's trying to prove that he's a better leader than his father, a previous president of the game's fictional setting of Yara, was. "He may not be the dictator his father was," Esposito says. He reveals that the character is a former child soldier, who was "born with a silver spoon in his mouth" but was unable to ascend as a ruler until his father was unseated by revolutionaries. He talks about his beliefs, and there's some clear parallels between Castillo and the former leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro. "When you get in bed with America, things change," Esposito says. "But does Anton want that for his own country? I don't think so." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  5. While E3 2020 did not happen this year, there has been plenty of video game news this summer. The news train chugged along this week with Ubisoft Forward, and next up is the next part of Geoff Keighley's Summer Games Fest with an announcement about Death Stranding. Hideo Kojima and artist Yoji Shinkawa from Kojima Productions will speak to Keighley on July 13 for a chat about the PC edition, which releases on July 14. Kojima and Shinkawa will have a "special conversation" with Kojima about the game, according to a promo, but no further details were divulged. Death Stranding was originally due to launch on June 2 on Steam, the Epic Game Store, and retail, but the release was delayed due to the shift to a work-from-home setup because of COVID-19.

  6. With the launch of next-generation consoles coming up later this year, Microsoft and Sony are ushering in the next era of gaming. The companies are taking slightly different approaches. Sony has said it plans to release PS5-exclusive titles right out of the gate, while Microsoft has spoken time and again about not doing this with the Xbox Series X, and instead launching titles across its family of devices. Xbox boss Phil Spencer told GI.biz that he's so passionate about this because he wants to make Microsoft's games available to people no matter what device they have. Forcing people to buy new hardware is against what the spirit of gaming is all about, Spencer said. "As a player you are the centre of our strategy," Spencer said. "Our device is not the centre of our strategy, our game is not the centre of the strategy. We want to enable you to play the games you want to play, with the friends you want to play with, on any device. On TV, the Xbox console is going to be the best way to play console games."

  7. The Call of Duty League appears to have accidentally revealed the dates for Champs 2020 event, which will take place online because of the on-going threat of COVID-19. During the end of the CDL New York stream on July 12, the company had a little note up about Champs having a $4.2 million prize pool, and it showed the dates of August 29-30. It’s not officially confirmed yet if these are the dates or if it was a mistake by the broadcast team. The company has not officially announced the dates for the meet as of now, only stating in their official announcements that the event takes place in August. Champs will feature a double elimination bracket with all 12 teams, with higher ranked teams by standings seeing byes in first few rounds, while lower ranked teams will start in the loser’s bracket of the event. Activision is expected to announce details on how the CDL Playoffs and Championship will work soon. The post Call of Duty League Championship Dates reportedly revealed appeared first on Charlie INTEL. View the full article
  8. Leyou, the parent company that owns a majority stake in Warframe developer Digital Extremes and Gears Tactics developer Splash Damage, is looking increasingly likely to be bought out by Tencent. On July 10, Leyou announced a trading halt, "pending the release of an announcement pursuant to the Hong Kong Code on Takeovers and Mergers which constitutes inside information of the Company." Initially, rumors persisted that Sony was the likely buyer, but the Leyou board released another statement indicating that they were entering into an agreement with Tencent. "The Board announces that on 10 July 2020 (before trading hours), Mr. Yuk and the Company entered into an exclusivity agreement (the 'Privatization Exclusivity Agreement') with Tencent Mobility Limited (the 'Potential Acquiror'), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tencent Holdings Limited," the announcement reads. This does not make the deal a definite thing, but it means that if Leyou sells within the next three months, it will be to Tencent. "There is no assurance that any negotiations mentioned in this announcement will either materialize or eventually be consummated and the negotiations may or may not lead to a possible acquisition and privatization of the Company," the statement clarifies.

  10. As part of the Ubisoft Forward event, the publisher confirmed more details about Assassin's Creed Valhalla, including its music. There will be a seven-song EP pulled from the game's soundtrack that will be released on Spotify and for purchase on iTunes later this year. The EP will feature original music from composers Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner, along with an original song by Einar Selvik. Selvik is the former drummer of the metal band Gorgoroth and current singer of the Nordic band Wardruna. Selvik worked with the History Channel on the show Vikings. Wardruna's music and stylings seem to be a perfect match for Valhalla, as you can tell from the band's latest music video below. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  11. Assassin's Creed Valhalla will continue the trend of letting you pursue multiple romances throughout your adventure, but this time your options for lasting relationships have been expanded. In advance of Ubisoft Forward, GameSpot recently sat down with Valhalla narrative director Darby McDevitt, who explained how the Viking-themed sequel will still let you explore as many relationships as you wish. This time, however, you're able to engage with your partner in long-term relationships while also fostering multiple smaller ones on the side if you wish. "There are definitely a couple of one-night-stands you can get involved in and they're fun in their own ways but there's also going to be some longer-term relationships," McDevitt explained. "A little of both. If you want to be monogamous and have a single, ongoing relationship with somebody, you can do that." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  12. New Releases highlights some of the hottest games coming soon, and this week has a double dose of invaded kingdoms with PS4 exclusive Ghost of Tsushima and Nintendo Switch exclusive Paper Mario: The Origami King. The multiplatform crowd can try out Rocket Arena, and Death Stranding's PC port is here. Finally, those looking for a more zen experience can tend to their farms with Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. Death Stranding -- July 14 Available on: PC Our Death Stranding review is quite positive, and now PC gamers can experience Hideo Kojima's latest outing for themselves. It's the same story of deliveryman Sam Bridges trekking across a shattered United States, with a healthy dose of Kojima's signature story beats and zany cutscenes. The PC version also includes a new photo mode and crossover content with the Half-Life series, plus support for higher framerates and ultrawide monitors.

  13. It is no surprise, but CD Projekt Red has confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 has "no plans" to be on Xbox Game Pass. CDPR's Radek Grabowski confirmed this on Twitter recently. "No Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077," he said. Grabowski's tweet came in response to a Twitter thread about the possibility of Microsoft paying third-party developers a fee to launch their games on Xbox Game Pass to help promote the subscription service.

  14. As part of the Devolver Direct event, the publisher announced that its twisted take on battle royale, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, now finally has a release date--and it's very soon. Fall Guys is releasing on August 4, and a new trailer has also been released. Check it out below. In addition to providing another look at the colorful, whimsical game, the video confirms that pre-orders on Steam come with a special character--Gordon Freeman of Half-Life fame. Fall Guys will be released on August 4 for PS4 and PC, but there is no word yet on if the game will also come to Nintendo Switch or Xbox One. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  15. Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito and Anthony Gonzalez, who voiced Coco in the Pixar movie of the same name, are lending their talents to Ubisoft's Far Cry 6. After confirming the game during its Ubisoft Forward event, the company has now shared a behind-the-scenes video featuring Esposito and Gonzalez speaking about their characters and their experiences working on the project. Esposito plays Anton Castillo, the main villain of Far Cry 6, and Esposito calls him a very smart and manipulative person. Esposito also says you may not want to take what Anton says at face value, and he's known to lie as part of his excellent manipulation skills. Gonzalez plays Anton's son, Diego Castillo, and he talks about the process of getting into character and delivering a meaningful and impactful performance. Both Esposito and Gonzalez also take some time to speak about the challenging nature of working in motion-capture suits and playing make-believe as they are forced to imagine their surroundings.

  16. Despite releasing more than two years ago, Ubisoft's The Crew 2 is still revving up new content. Following the release of the major Summer in Hollywood expansion, Ubisoft announced even more plans to support the racing game as part of the Ubisoft Forward event on Sunday. Next up in the Summer in Hollywood schedule is the Beach DLC, which drops on July 15, and adds a number of summer-y vehicles like the Volkswagen Beetle and Bus. After that, Neon Battle is arriving on July 22, and it introduces the Tron-like Kawasaki Ninja H2 light rider edition motorcycle. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  17. The Ubisoft Forward event has come and gone, and it brought a lot of big news about Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, Watch Dogs Legion, and Hyper Scape. Ubisoft also announced that its free-to-play 2D fighting game Brawlhalla is headed to mobile in August. The game will release on mobile devices on August 6. Those who pre-register for iOS or Android can get a free skin for when the game is released. Brawlhalla has been a huge success on console and PC, where it has "more than 40 million players" across Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game supports cross-play on those platforms, and cross-play will also be available on mobile at release. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  18. While we won't get a new Far Cry game this year, we won't have to wait too long into next year to get our hands on Far Cry 6. Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia (that's a lot of platforms, we know). In typical Ubisoft fashion, numerous editions will be available to purchase, and pre-order listings are already starting to pop up. If you already know you're down to jump into another zany open-world first-person shooter, you can snag some cool bonuses with your pre-order, too. Far Cry 6 is set in the present day in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise that has been "frozen in time," largely due to the country's tyrannical leader Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito). As the hero of the story, you'll step into the shoes of Dani Rojas, who helps form a guerilla faction to oust Castillo from power. While next-gen consoles will already be out by the time Far Cry 6 releases, it's worth noting that you'll be able to buy one copy of Far Cry 6 to play on PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X. So if you aren't planning on upgrading to a next-gen console right away, you'll still be able to enjoy Far Cry 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X whenever you do decide to upgrade.

  19. As part of Ubisoft Forward, the developer shared a long list of new details about Assassin's Creed Valhalla regarding the combat, how you can recruit cats, and that you'll be able to switch between male and female Eivor at any point in the game. Another detail confirmed during the presentation was that Valhalla will have a fishing mechanic--and it's tied into another new system for the game. In Valhalla, your health does not automatically regenerate over time, so you will need to find ways to replenish it. One way is to catch and consume fish. Nice!Given that Valhalla is set in 873 CE, the game does not feature actual fishing rods. So you will simply cast a line with your hand and try to catch a fish that way. Once you have a fish on the line, you'll need to mash the A button to bring it in. You must control the direction of the fish and also the tension of your line to be able to successfully land the fish. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  20. Today's the day we (officially) saw Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay for the first time - not counting those leaks last week. Ubisoft showed a decent look during its Ubisoft Forward presentation, and then even more in a post-show deep dive. Eurogamer has also been playing a build of the game ourselves - you can watch that and hear Zoe's thoughts below. This section shows the climactic fort assault spotted in those leaks, but also some more peaceful gameplay exploring East Anglia and attending a wedding between tribes. Well, it starts peaceful, anyway. Read more View the full article
  21. In the reveal trailer for Far Cry 6, the main antagonist, Yara president Anton Castillo, explains the chaotic nature of power in governing society to his teenage son Diego. His son is poised to take over when the time comes, but for now, Anton wants his son to understand his point of view. Using a hand grenade as a metaphor, the elder Castillo states that, "Our country is like this grenade, except it has two basic parts: the people, and you--and you must clutch them nice and tight. Or we all go boom." Far Cry 6 is a game about politics and how radically different views inevitably lead to conflict. Set during an uprising in the country of Yara, which takes stylistic and historical inspiration from the island of Cuba, you'll join the rebel force made up of citizens to overthrow Anton Castillo and his regime. His ultimate goal is to bring the country out of its period of stagnation and into a supposed new age of prosperity, even if it means oppressing and enslaving the country's citizens to do it. Since Far Cry 3, the franchise has enjoyed putting its villains front and center, giving them plenty of time to explain their philosophies in elaborate detail. They're larger than life figures whose presence is evident throughout the jungles, caves, and forests in the open-world settings--and Far Cry 6 is no different. The new game coming from Ubisoft Toronto leans more heavily into the dynamic of revolution, and how Yara's citizens rise up to free themselves instead of waiting for an outside savior to do it for them. Far Cry 6's story is about combating fascism, and you are playing as a member of the anti-fascist movement. Speaking with Far Cry 6 narrative director Navid Khavari, he explained the backbone of Far Cry 6's plot, and how the game's central character, Dani Rojas, fits in.

  22. Ah, Sam Fisher. What does Ubisoft have planned for the stealth hero next? A starring role in a new mobile game, it seems. During the Ubisoft Forward event tonight, the company showed a new trailer for Tom Clancy's Elite Squad, a kind of Tom Clancy all-stars (I know) action RPG for mobile devices drenched in a Fortnite-style graphics style. Sam Fisher is in the trailer, complete with iconic night vision goggles, alongside characters from the likes of Rainbow Six (Montagne and Caveira), Ghost Recon (El Sueño from Wildlands), and The Division. There are five versus five battles in a campaign mode as well as competitive multiplayer. Tom Clancy's Elite Squad comes out 27th August 2020 on the App Store and the Google Play Store.

  23. As part of the Ubisoft Forward event on Sunday, the developer confirmed a long list of new details about Assassin's Creed Valhalla, but one piece of information stands out. The developer confirmed in a post-show livestream that Eivor, the main character of Valhalla, can recruit a cat to join you on your journey. You'll get the cat by helping a Norse child in town, and then the cat--whose name is Nali--will join your longship and become a "cat raider," as the developer put it. This cat will curl up inside your boat, and it will also eat rats to keep your shipmates healthy and safe, it seems. "As you're riding around the rivers of England, you will see a cat basically walking around your longship, keeping your Viking raiders company," Ubisoft said.

  24. Ubisoft usually unveils its upcoming slate of games at a live press conference held annually during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June. With E3 being cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ubisoft didn't make any announcements in June, and instead pushed back a month to hold a digital show called Ubisoft Forward, which aired today, and played out just like the company's press conferences, only with far less dancing on stage. We also went beyond Ubisoft Forward to get our hands on many of the games. We spent some time talking to the developers behind the games to find out what players can expect from them, even for Far Cry 6. Below is a roundup of the big announcements from Ubisoft Forward, along with links to our previews and videos: Watch Dogs: Legion Gets A Release Date The third entry in the Watch Dogs series is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 29.

  25. Every big video game conference needs a "and you can play it right now" moment. Today's Ubisoft Forward event announced that Ubisoft's battle royale, Hyper Scape, is moving into open beta today - meaning anyone on PC can play. During the technical alpha, players had to hope for a Twitch drop to get access, but the game is now available to all. A battle pass for cosmetics is in effect for the duration of the open beta, and anything unlocked will carry over to other phases and final launch. During this phase, a new game mode where it's every person for themselves (solo mode) is available. Previously, only 3-person squads were available for play. If you're on PC, playing is as easy as logging into Uplay, downloading the game, and playing. It's a free-to-play title, so there's little barrier to entry if you are curious about the battle royale experience. Hyper Scape is expected to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC this summer. Check out my previous time with Hyper Scape here. Click here to watch embedded media View the full article
  26. Click here to watch embedded media On July 15, a new form of help arrives in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. If your friends aren't online or you don't trust random players, you'll be able to use A.I. teammates to join you on missions. The highly requested computer-controlled assistance arrives in Title Update 2.1.0, which is free and will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia. The A.I. teammates can be activated and deactivated at any time, allowing you to continue playing solo if you want, and then summon them for a quick burst of firepower. A.I. teammates can perform sync shots, will try to revive you, and can be customized with different weapons, gear, and physical attributes. You can see the A.I. teammates in action in the trailer above. A day later on July 16, Ubisoft is launching a new limited-time event called Resistance. A press release from Ubisoft gives a little context into the mission: "Nomad will support the Outcasts during their counterattack on Sentinel forces and assist them in their efforts to save prisoners, attack Sentinel outposts, and stop convoys looking for survivors." The mission only runs from July 16 to 29, and offers up 15 exclusive rewards, along with players impacting the presence of rebels in Auroa to create faction warfare between rival factions. For a sneak peek at this event, check out the trailer below: Click here to watch embedded media View the full article
  27. Far Cry 6 is the next game in Ubisoft's open-world shooter franchise. While Far Cry 5 brought the series to North America for the first time, and with its follow-up New Dawn taking a surprising turn towards the post-apocalypse, Far Cry 6 brings the series back to its roots in a tropical locale. This return to the series' roots also brings back a kind of protagonist who has more of a personal stake in the story, and FC6's lead character will be more present and visible throughout the campaign. Revealed during Ubisoft Forward, the protagonist of Far Cry 6 is Dani Rojas, is a native of the island of Yara--a country "frozen in time" due to economic sanctions. With the rise of a guerrilla revolution in the country, Rojas gets swept up in the push for change against Presidente Anton Castillo's regime. Unlike other Far Cry protagonists who are outsiders making their way through a foreign land, Rojas has deep ties to the island, making their investment in its future more personal. Taking cues from Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Valhalla, players can choose from either a male or female version of Dani, and both will be fully voiced throughout the campaign. Furthermore, Dani Rojas will also appear in cutscenes interacting with other characters throughout the game, moving away from the first-person dialogue sequences and making the protagonist more visible.
