Assassin’s Creed Rogue HD Rated In Korea

Tyler Lee December 6, 2017

According to an earlier report, it was suggested that Assassin’s Creed Rogue could be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. If this was something you were interested in, you’ll be pleased to learn that the HD version of the game has recently been rated by the Korea Games Rating Board, which means that we could be close to seeing a release.

Ubisoft has yet to officially announce anything so take don’t get your hopes up just yet, but hopefully we’ll be able to hear something from the publisher soon. For those unfamiliar, Assassin’s Creed Rogue was launched several years ago during the PS3 to PS4 transition period.

Back then, Ubisoft released two versions of Assassin’s Creed, one of which was Unity designed for the Xbox One and PS4, and Rogue which was designed for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The launch of the HD remake of Rogue would suggest that the game could be arriving onto the current-gen consoles, so if you didn’t get to play the game before, this could be your chance.

There’s no word on when the game will be released, so details about what the HD version of the game will contain remain unknown, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue HD For PS4 And Xbox One Could Be In The Works

Tyler Lee November 28, 2017

Back in 2014 when the new PS4 and Xbox One consoles were announced, Ubisoft made a rather interesting decision regarding its Assassin’s Creed franchise. They decided to release two titles, one of which was Assassin’s Creed Unity for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and Assassin’s Creed Rogue which was for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Now it looks like Ubisoft could have a HD version of Rogue in the works, thanks to a tweet by AccessTheAnimus in which listings on various Italian retailers’ websites are suggesting that the game could be real. The listings have also suggested that the release of the HD version of Rogue could be on the 18th of March, 2018.

Assuming that this information is accurate, we’re not sure what we can expect from the HD version of Assassin’s Creed Rogue, other than the probability that we’ll see improved graphics. Whether or not there’ll be changes made to the gameplay, or if there will be additional content is unclear, but if you did not get a chance to experience the game back then, perhaps come next year you could.

No official announcement has been made, but the listing does hint that we could be close to getting one, so stay tuned and check back with us at a later date for more details if there are any to be had.

Ubisoft Releases South Park: Phone Destroyer For Mobile

Tyler Lee November 10, 2017

If you’ve always wanted to enjoy a South Park video game on your mobile device, you will be pleased to learn that Ubisoft and RedLynx have released South Park: Phone Destroyer for both iOS and Android devices. The game was originally announced at E3 earlier this year, and now it is available for download.

According to Ubisoft’s description of the game, “South Park: Phone Destroyer lets you team up with all your favorite South Park characters as you’ve never seen them before! This brand new mobile card collection real-time battle game will allow you to assemble a team of South Park characters, and bring them onto the battlefield to vanquish mighty bosses, and other players!”

Basically it is more or less like a digital card game such as Hearthstone except based on the South Park franchise and featuring South Park characters. The game itself will be free-to-play but do take note that there will be microtransactions offered. Ubisoft stresses that gamers won’t have to pay anything to see everything the game has to offer, but we suppose there could be moments that might tempt you into spending real-life money.

According to Ubisoft, “The game is free to play. Everything can be earned in the game without paying, but you can choose to spend real world money if you wish. The game is designed so that nothing is ever locked behind a paywall. Everything in the game is available to all players as they progress, whether they choose to spend real-world money or not.” Gamers who are interested will be able to download the game via the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

Ubisoft CEO Thinks Next-Gen Consoles Are At Least Two Years Away

Tyler Lee November 10, 2017

Sony’s PS4 Pro was launched last year and this year we saw the launch of the Nintendo Switch and the Microsoft Xbox One X, which means that these are the latest consoles available in the market right now. However could next-gen consoles be in the horizon? According to Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot, yes, and that we could see them in two years.

Speaking during an investor’s call (via GameSpot), Guillemot was quoted as saying that he believes that we are at least two years away from seeing next-gen consoles being launched. “As Sony launched PlayStation 4 Pro last year and Microsoft Xbox One X this year, we think we still have a minimum of two years in front of us before something new is coming.”

Guillemot stresses that this is just Ubisoft’s projected arrival of next-gen consoles, meaning that this is just what Ubisoft thinks and isn’t necessarily a guarantee. However Guillemot’s prediction might not be too far off. Earlier this year analyst Michael Pachter had suggested that we could be seeing the PlayStation 5 launched in 2019, making it two years from now.

Prior to that other analysts have suggested a possible 2018 release for the PS5, although given that the PS4 Pro was launched in 2016, two years from then does make it 2018. In any case we suppose only time will tell, so until then take it with a grain of salt.

Ubisoft Denies Assassin’s Creed Origins DRM Is Hampering Performance

Tyler Lee November 5, 2017

When it comes to writing code, there are many ways one can go about it, but usually what developers try to do is be as efficient as their coding as possible to help ensure that whatever it is that they develop doesn’t impact performance. However it seems that gamers are speculating that this might not be the case with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Speaking to TorrentFreak (via Kotaku), Voksi, a member of the Revolt team of game crackers claims that Assassin’s Creed Origins isn’t performing as well as it could be on computers due to Ubisoft utilizing two forms of DRMs in the game. For those unfamiliar, DRMs are basically tools that help to prevent piracy and have been used in various digital media, like songs or movies purchased through storefronts like iTunes to prevent them from being copied and redistributed illegally.

According to Voksi, “Basically, Ubisoft have implemented VMProtect on top of Denuvo, tanking the game’s performance by 30-40%, demanding that people have a more expensive CPU to play the game properly, only because of the DRM. It’s anti-consumer and a disgusting move.” Unsurprisingly Ubisoft has since denied those claims, and while they are confirming the use of DRMs, they suggest that the use of the DRMs would have “no perceptible effect” on the game’s performance.

They add, “In order to recreate a living, systemic and majestic open world of Ancient Egypt, where players can witness all of its stunning details, its beautiful landscapes & incredible cities, in a completely seamless way with no loading screens, Assassin’s Creed Origins uses the full extent of the minimum and recommended PC system requirements here: while ensuring a steady 30 FPS performance.”

Adnan Farooqui October 23, 2017

It has been a long wait for fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise as Ubisoft wanted to take some time off and rethink major aspects of these games. Assassin’s Creed Origins is the title that’s supposed to bring some of the changes that Ubisoft has come up with during this time. The game’s official release is not that far off anymore and Ubisoft has now published the official 4K launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed Origins.

We normally see launch trailers being published on YouTube on the day the title is supposed to be released. If Ubisoft jumped the gun on this trailer, then chances are that it’s going to be pulled in a couple of hours.

The trailer is titled “Legend of the Assassin” and it tells us the story of Bayek, the protagonist in the new Assassin’s Creed game. The trailer features footage in 4K so if you have a compatible display, do check it out.

Ubisoft is gearing up to launch the new Assassin’s Creed title. It recently confirmed the post-launch DLC details for Assassin’s Creed Origins. There will be both free and paid DLC options for players. The title itself is going to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC come October 27th.

Ubisoft Could Be Bringing UNO Onto The Nintendo Switch

Tyler Lee October 18, 2017

The way the Nintendo Switch has been designed allows gamers to play at home or on the go. The Joy-Cons have also been designed in such a way that it allows two players to play at once without having to get additional controllers, unless there are more players involved, thus creating a social experience right out of the box.

Now if you’re a fan of local multiplayer games, you might be interested to learn that Ubisoft could be gearing up to launch popular card game UNO on the Nintendo Switch. This is according to a recently discovered PEGI rating which lists UNO for the Nintendo Switch on its website, hinting that a release on the console could be imminent.

Given that we’ve seen the UNO game released on multiple platforms in the past, we wouldn’t be surprised if it were to arrive for the Switch. After all like we said based on how the Switch is designed, UNO would actually be a perfect social game for the console, although Ubisoft has yet to officially announce anything yet.

In the meantime if these kind of games interest you, you might also want to check out Monopoly which is expected to be released on the Switch at the end of the month following its official announcement earlier this year.

Ubisoft Confirms Assassin’s Creed Origins PC Specs

Adnan Farooqui October 5, 2017


The next addition to Ubisoft’s popular Assassin’s Creed franchise is going to arrive later this month. Players will be heading to ancient Egypt this time around. Ubisoft has now confirmed the minimum and recommended PC specs for this title. It has also detailed some of the new features that will be available to players on PC.

The minimum PC specifications for Assassin’s Creed Origins include a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5-2400s or 3.9GHz AMD FX-6350 processor with 6GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX660 or AMD R9 270 graphics card.

The recommended specifications include a 3.5GHz Intel Core i7-3770 processor or 4.0GHz AMD FX-8350 processor with 8GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX760 or AMD R9 280X graphics card. Both require Windows 7 SP1 and higher. It will be possible to play the game in 4K if the PC’s specs allow it.

Ubisoft has also revealed that the game’s download size is going to be around 45GB so make sure you have enough free space on your PC. Moreover, there’s also going to be a Day 1 update but Ubisoft hasn’t defined the update’s exact size yet.

A performance benchmark has been built-in to help PC players validate their custom settings. The framerate is kept as close as possible to the targeted max at all times with dynamic resolution rendering.

Ubisoft has also confirmed that the development team is already working on PC updates so other features will be released after the game is launched. Assassin’s Creed Origins PC release takes place on October 27th.

Ubisoft Wants To Record Your Farts For South Park Game

Tyler Lee October 3, 2017

The South Park franchise has always been rather crude and disgusting, but it’s also one of the reasons why it is so popular because of how much the show’s creators don’t hold back, which is why we really couldn’t not expect any less from the South Park video games. In fact Ubisoft is taking it to the next level by asking fans if they want to record their fart sounds for the game.

Ubisoft has recently launched a content called I Am The Fart in which they are asking for fans to record the sound of their farts and submit it to the company. They will then select the winner and will fly that person over to their headquarters in San Francisco where the fart sounds will be recorded and used in the game as one of the New Kid’s lethal attacks.

We know it’s crude but like we said, that’s the whole charm of South Park in the first place, plus we reckon it is also pretty good marketing for the game. The contest will run from the 2nd of October to the 16th of October so for those who wish to have their farts immortalized, head on over to I Am The Fart’s website where you can check out other submissions as well as find out how to submit your own.

This is actually not the first fart-related marketing gimmick that Ubisoft has come up with. Last year the company launched a device called the Nosulus Rift which lets gamers smell farts in the game. That being said, South Park: The Fractured But Whole is currently set for a release on the 17th of October, 2017.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Is The Switch’s Best-Selling Third-Party Title

Tyler Lee September 24, 2017

When Nintendo and Ubisoft officially announced Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle earlier this year, safe to say that this was a collaboration that not many had expected. However it turned out to be a great idea because from what we are hearing, the title is selling pretty well, so much so that it is apparently the best-selling third-party title for the Nintendo Switch.

This is according to the sales figures tracked by companies such as NPD and Chart-Track GFK who tracked the sales of the title over markets such as North America and Australia. However note that this is based on physical sales of the title, although we suppose that it could also be a potential gauge for overall sales as well.

So far the third-party releases we’ve seen for the Switch have been mostly well-received, like Super Bomberman R and Puyo Puyo Tetris, just to name a few. That being said, there are still quite a few third-party titles that have yet to be released on the Switch, such as Bethesda who recently announced a slew of third-party games for the Switch, such as 2016’s DOOM reboot, Wolfenstein II, and Skyrim, some of which are expected to be launched this year, while the rest will be arriving in 2018.
