Last night Ubisoft announced (officially) the newest entry in their open-world Ghost Recon series. Titled Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the sequel to 2017's Ghost Recon Wildlands will transport players to a fictional location to do battle with some fictional weapons. And, yeah, and the Punisher.
It's been a long time and a lot of hours between the private beta of The Division 2 and our (eventual) review of the final game. There were massive downloads to contend with -- never fun for South African players -- and a little launch day shakiness. But we managed to get through it all and liberate Washington DC. In a manner of speaking, because the game's only just begun.
The Assassin's Creed series has been running, in multiple formats, since 2007. Twelve years is a long time to be doing anything and yet, Ubisoft have managed to find ways to keep players and fans engaged. Whether it's multiple platforms and game types, comic books and graphic novels, and even motion pictures, there's a lot of stuff out there for fans.

We recently got a chance to go hands-on with Far Cry: New Dawn, the newest ‘in-between’ release dividing the numbered Far Cry games. After Far Cry 3 we got the neon Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, after Far Cry 4 we got Far Cry Primal and after Far Cry 5 we have Far Cry: New Dawn. What’s strange about this one is that it’s a more-or-less direct sequel to Far Cry 5, rather than bei...[Read More]
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]
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]
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.

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]
