Far Cry: New Dawn wants you to Rage around Hope County this February

If you battled with the spoilers contained in the Far Cry teaser from yesterday then you should immediately stop reading about the full reveal of Far Cry: New Dawn, a game that is so post-apocalyptic that we keep finding ourselves typing Fallout instead of Far Cry. Far Cry: New Dawn, based on the first reveal trailer, follows in the footsteps of previous in-between releases in that it looks set to...[Read More]

Ubisoft teases a new Far Cry, full reveal taking place at The Game Awards 2018

We’ll get our first look at the new Far Cry game this evening at The Game Awards 2018 but Ubisoft has teased what’s coming ahead of time. And, based on what we’ve seen, we’re in for a bit of a wild ride. There are a few things that you need to know first. Ubisoft’s teaser video below contains spoilers for one of Far Cry 5‘s endings. If you haven’t finished...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Have spear, will travel

Assassin’s Creed has been around for eleven years now and Ubisoft are, technically, still telling the same story. They’re just finding different ways of doing it. From Assassin’s Creed in 2007 to Assassin’s Creed III in 2012 the company used Subject 17, Desmond Miles, to link their historical assassination epics together, moving over to unnamed present-day protagonists (inc...[Read More]

Google testing Project Stream, an in-browser game streaming function for Chrome

We’re getting more and more used to streaming our content — whether it’s video files from a media server or music and video from Spotify and Netflix. The next target is gaming, obviously, and while there are solutions out there — like not-available-in-SA PlayStation Now — Google’s got a slightly different idea called Project Stream. Project Stream is a streaming...[Read More]

The best games of E3 2018

The Electronic Entertainment Expo – or E3 for short – is the world’s biggest gaming show and in what feels like the blink of an eye it’s all over for 2018. Each year’s event shows us all the huge games we’ll be playing in the future, or right now… Eager to see which games we’ll be lusting after later this year and beyond and which one’s we’re playing...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 – Seeding the familiar with a little strange

You know how it goes: You live out in the country, enjoying the quiet life, when suddenly along come a bunch of new folks with their fancy rules and religious practises. The next thing you know all of the spare farmland has been bought up, people are being abducted and brainwashed and they’re getting the locals hooked on weird mind-altering substances. No, it’s not Scientology. Or hipp...[Read More]

Hands-on with Far Cry 5 — America has fallen, but is it worth saving?

Fundamentalists have taken over the United States of America! But enough about politics, you’re here to read about Far Cry 5. Such is the timeliness of Ubisoft’s latest open-world shooter, it’s almost too easy to draw comparisons between the Seed family cult who now rule over Montana’s Hope County and… the Donald. Trouble is, Far Cry 5 will have been in development long before the White Hous...[Read More]

The best games of E3 2017

For more than 20 years, E3 – or the Electronic Entertainment Expo – has been ground zero for the year’s biggest game announcements. And it’s going on again right now. We’ve been through almost all of the big press conferences at this point, but Nintendo is still ahead, not to mention anything else exciting from third-parties and indies. And we’ll be neck-deep in trailers an...[Read More]

7 reasons why Far Cry 5 will be the series’ best yet

Crazy pirates, oppressive drug lords and cannibalistic tribes – Far Cry has a habit of putting you up against treacherous opposition. But the next addition to the open-world shooter, Far Cry 5, looks to be even more sinister. That’s not because the bad guys here commit more dastardly deeds than the likes of Vaas Montenegro and Pagan Min. Rather, it’s because their depiction is a little bit too clo...[Read More]

Ubisoft teases Far Cry 5 ahead of 26 May reveal

We’ve been on the lookout for Far Cry 5 and Ubisoft is set to oblige us later this week, by having the worldwide reveal of the latest in its explore-and-kill-everything series taking place this Friday. And just to make sure that it has got your attention, Ubi has released a series of short shorts which give us some sort of idea what’s going to be revealed. And things are looking…...[Read More]

For Honor – Can Ubisoft’s medieval soldier-em-up conquer the world?

If you played For Honor for an hour, there’s a risk you might leave it disappointed and confused. After an absurd overload of information and a, frankly, too-short tutorial, nobody could be angry at you for not delving deeper – but, if you decide to stick with it, For Honor has depth and some good ideas and unique gameplay beneath the surface. There are so many modes, upgrades, and customisa...[Read More]

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands – Can Tom Clancy steal us away from other shooters?

Like so many Ubisoft games, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a mixture of lots of ideas – some brilliant, some not so much. Take the dialogue and story, for example: you’re a crack unit of people who don’t exist (Ghosts) sent in to take down the kingpin of the drug ring in Bolivia. Sounds promising. At a time where the tattooed villain El Sueno is threatening to take over the enti...[Read More]
