When Ubisoft first announced the game formerly known as Gods & Monsters back at E3 2019, comparisons to Nintendo’s highly acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild were quick to follow. Ubisoft’s formal gameplay reveal of the newly renamed Immortals Fenyx Rising — set for release on December 3rd — does nothing to dispel those comparisons. In fact, after a two-hour gameplay demo of Immortals Fenyx Rising, it was hard to shake the feeling that I had just spent an afternoon playing a Greek-themed version of Nintendo’s instant classic with the serial numbers filed off. There are so many aspects of Immortals Fenyx Rising that feel like they were ripped right out of Breath of the Wild that it’s almost easier to list things that don’t... Continue reading…

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was an incredible adaptation of the iconic comic series, with an unforgettable chiptune soundtrack by Anamanaguchi. Unfortunately, it was also lost to time. After launching on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, it was delisted about a year later. Now, after years of fan outcry, Ubisoft is bringing the pixelated beat ‘em up back to modern platforms. A “complete edition” — which will include all of the DLC — is coming to the PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Google Stadia. Ubisoft says it’ll be available “holiday 2020.” Huge thank you to the fans who never shut up about the Scott Pilgrim game, not once, ever, even for one second to let me sleep. This game belongs to you. Now please get out of my house— Bryan... Continue reading…

Ubisoft is bringing back one of its most legendary games with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, a modern version of the classic action-adventure game set for release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on January 21st, 2021. The company says that the new version of The Sands of Time is emphatically Ubisoft’s first full-fledged remake, not a remaster or reboot. Ubisoft Pune & Ubisoft Mumbai rebuilt the original game from the ground up using Ubisoft’s modern AnvilNext Engine, complete with new motion capture animation, new assets, and some adjustments to the gameplay for modern audiences. The Sands of Time Remake still strongly resembles the original, though, with the same storyline and gameplay. Don’t expect a... Continue reading…
