Assassin’s Creed Origins ‘Birth of the Brotherhood ‘Trailer and Stealth Gameplay

Assassin’s Creed Origins – Stealth, Freedom of Choice, and a Lost City in the Desert In what might be a series first, Assassin’s Creed Origins pushed me to use all of the tactics at my disposal, without any prodding from the story or mission guidelines. This happened during my latest hands-on session with the game (set in the Nile Delta and Giza Plateau), somewhere around my fourth attempt to free Ghupa, an old man caged at the center of a hilltop camp. Ghupa had been kidnapped after asking too many questions about a shadowy villain known as the Scarab, a member of the mysterious Order of the Ancients whose preferred method of killing involved burying people up to their necks in the desert and leaving them to die. This fate hadn’t yet befallen Ghupa, but for now he was surrounded by a gene...

Assassin’s Creed: Origins becomes an ‘open world museum’ with Discovery Tour mode

Assassin’s Creed: Origins – Discovery Tour Shows a Different Side of Ancient Egypt With Discovery Tour, Assassin’s Creed Origins is using the concept of the Animus Database – long one of the most fascinating parts of the series – as a springboard for an entirely new kind of experience. Where the Database was a collection of educational (and frequently snarky) notes on the important people, places, and events that you encounter in each game, Discovery Tour adds an entirely new game mode that turns the massive re-creation of Egypt into a combat-free living museum, with guided tours that let players delve into its history firsthand. “This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, that we’ve been asked to do by teachers, by institutions,” says Jean Guesdon, creative director for Assassi...

Ubisoft Says Zelda & Horizon Zero Dawn Borrowed From Their Open World Games

Ubisoft has their formula set when it comes to open world games, and you can see the template being repeated over many of their biggest franchises. While for the most part their approach to open world game design is solid, it does tend to get very repetitive and mindless. Other games have definitely taken influence from some of the biggest Ubisoft games, but tweaked many of these mechanics to offer a much more compelling gameplay loop. Ubisoft also seems to have noticed this, saying that some of the biggest open world games this year have borrowed from their open world mechanics. In an interview with Edge Magazine Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has this to say: “It’s interesting, because The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took a lot of things that existed in Far Cry and other Ubisof...

Top 50 Game Developers/Publishers Indian Gamers Should Know About (Part 1)

While playing Destiny 2 on our livestreams recently, I realized that many from our Indian audience had no idea about Bungie, and their legacy. As the conversation went on, I learnt that many gamers in India do not know too much about some of the biggest game developers, and had not even heard of the smaller ones. So we decided to put together a list of game developers and publishers that we feel that most gamers should know about. Starting off, we’ll be looking at some of the biggest names in the gaming industry, and then head on to the smaller studios. Also, we will have Indian game developers added to the list in upcoming parts. Ubisoft Known For: Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Prince Of Persia, Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six Currently Working On: Assassin’s Creed:...

Ubisoft Announces New Online FPS Multiplayer Title, Atomega

Grow, Evolve and Battle for Dominance in New Ubisoft Game Atomega Today, Ubisoft announced Atomega, a new online multiplayer FPS available on September 19th, 2017 on Steam. Developed by Reflections, a Ubisoft studio, in the same small incubator which created Grow HomeTM and Grow Up, Atomega was made with a creatively experimental mind-set, deliberately seeking to create unusual concepts which will surprise and delight players. Atomega takes place at the very end of time where reality is rapidly dissolving. All that exists are Exoforms, super advanced post-biological lifeforms, masters of matter, energy and the last distant relative to man and machine. As the laws of physics slowly repeal, the Exoforms fight for fun and dominance, replaying the final moments of the universe in an arena at t...

South Park: The Fractured But Whole: Difficulty Slider Changes The Colour of your Skin

South Park: The Fractured but Whole’s difficulty slider changes the colour of your skin  Ubisoft’s comedy RPG South Park: The Fractured but Whole features various levels of difficulty, from easy to very difficult, much like most games. What’s different though is the difficulty affects the colour of your character’s skin. During the character creation section of the game, which you can see in this video (skip to the five minutes and 40 seconds mark), you’re able to change the colour of your character’s skin, as you’d expect. What’s interesting is the easier the difficulty, the lighter your character’s skin. Conversely, the harder the difficulty, the darker your character’s skin. It means if you want to play The Fractured but Whole ...
