Tom Clancy's The Division Update 1.8 and Free Weekend

Ubisoft has just dropped the biggest free update for their online-only action role-playing video game Tom Clancy's The Division. With that update released, they have another promotional offer for this multiplayer shooter game. Update 1.8 is going by the name "Resistance", which is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One now. It will add an extra area to the West Side Pier map, including Resistance and Skirmish modes.

For short details of all the content that comes with Update 1.8, you can take a quick look at the launch trailer clip of it.

In Resistance, enemy teams will join up as teams to fight against you in waves, which is highly unlikely of them. You can firm up your defenses and a lot other stuff using resources dropped by your enemies once they are killed. So, the best you can do in a four members team is to try and stay alive for as long as you can. The changes are definitely made for good and the game is even better than it was before with the update.

Skirmish on the other hand is more like player versus player mode that is designed for two teams of four players engaged in killing each other while the clock is ticking. There is a social hub called Camp Clinton, which is almost similar to the main safe house Terminal. You can buy exotic weapons and new gears to even the odds of battlefield.

Now, along with this free update, there comes a free weekend of Tom Clancy's The Division, offering players to have a trial of the game followed by a sweet discount of 70% off on the whole package. Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft allows you to play The Division for free from December 7-10. The progress made during this period will be transferred to the main game if you choose to buy it following the free weekend.

Currently, the trial will only let you play for six hours, which might upset a lot of gamers but it also grants you access to all three DLC expansions; Underground, Survival and Last Stand. After releasing almost a year ago, The Division has finally rising once again from a slow running as the game have seen an all time increase of active users of 150% on daily basis, having a total of 9.5 million users right now. Hopefully, the numbers will rise following the free weekend experience for sure.

"Operation Chimera" will be the highlight of Year Three, where two new operators will be introduced from France and Russia. There will also be a four weeks limited-time co-op event named Outbreak during Season 1 of Year Three, which will be accessible for those who own Rainbow Six Siege. This event is basically all about quarantine and biohazard. This event will also allow players the chance to win exclusive cosmetics collection.

In the four season duration, each time two new Operators will be brought in. Having special roles in Outbreak co-op, these two operators are very well equipped to handle biohazard situations and are also available for multiplayer. Now this actually seems like a zombie apocalypse setting, where you go out there to put a bullet at the targets to stop them from coming at you.

Not only the game is getting two brand-new maps of Year Three, Season 1 but one of the old one is totally being re-done with new artwork and level design. Following the first Season, the game will be taking a bit more usual approach in Season Two. Two of the new Operators joining the fight will be from Italy and so will be one of the maps. Season Three will mix things up by picking one from Delta Force and another one from Scotland Yard before Season Four recruits two from Morocco.

Rainbow Six Siege came out in December, 2015 and is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for all. Promising a twist in the event, brand manager Alex Remy nodded that they surely are up to something with Year Three and the Outbreak event. Who knows if they are thinking of starting something like Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies or not.

An Xbox One X enhancements update for Ubisoft's tactical shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands is released and it is about to improve your experience with the game. The biggest perk of the platforms' graphical superiority and a bunch of fixes are how the game is gonna get a lot better than it already is. With this update, loading time will be quick, Ghost War’s progression and UI gets fixed as well while the Ghost War menu lets you directly hit the store.

The team behind the update did not just enhanced Ghost Recon Wildlands for Xbox One X, if the improvement of anything in-game would've made the game better, they did it. You will see that for yourself when you notice the draw distances and better terrain representation. Anisotropic filtering was used to curve out the texture for your sight and distance also helps. Of course, all of it comes in a higher resolution with full HDR support.

Since Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is set in Bolivia, you cannot tell if it could be more realistic than this if you've never been there before. I guess you know what I meant here. If you have a few seconds to spare, you might even admire how lifelike this digital landscape of Bolivia really is. This is surely a technical home-run for the dev team dedicated for the Xbox One X enhancements update and being allied with Microsoft gave them access to every essential tool.

As you play the main campaign, Ghost War or the PvP mode in the dangerous open world, you will realize that this is the next level that you've been dreaming about for a long time. Because of all the tweaking, the surrounding environment is also very live and engaging. An issue with XP gain at the end of the match is fixed now and extensive use will no longer run out of ammo of helicopters.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is already out on all the major platforms like PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for players to enjoy. Still, those who prefer to cherish superior graphical masterworks in their very own Xbox One X console, the update for Ghost Recon Wildlands could be a thing for them. Just saying.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Out Now

One of Ubisoft's most popular and bankable franchise Assassin’s Creed releases its tenth main title Assassin’s Creed Origins and today sees the release of this action-adventure saga. You will play the game as the protagonist and the very first assassin of their sacred brotherhood named Bayek, who decided to take up the mantle of a protector of Egypt and the predecessor of the long heritage this secret band of warriors will follow.

assassin's creed origins released
Assassin’s Creed Origins Out Now

Assassin’s Creed Origins is set in a crucial time of Ancient Egypt’s history, when Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy were in a struggle for power and it was gradually reaching towards a bitter end. Unfortunately, the peril doesn't end here. The malevolent Order of the Ancients were trying to manipulate the situation from behind the curtains and a Roman army was just awaiting the borders of the country.

RELATED: Assassin’s Creed Origins Launch Trailer

Your assassin Bayek can develop his skill tree to become a Hunter, Seer or a Warrior, with all of them leading into different skill sets. Using poison, tame wild animals and throwing firebombs are what a Seer would do. If you want him to become a fearsome warrior, let him develop his range of melee attacks. And if you want to shoot arrows and distract your enemies with your pet eagle, like we saw in the cinematic trailer, then you take him to the path of a Hunter.

Now, Bayek will have to intervene into the middle and you will be exploring Ancient Egypt alog with him on his quest for righteousness. Though many are calling Assassin’s Creed Origins a reboot and some are calling it a soft-reboot but one thing is certain, which is that, it really is a new starting point for sure.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed Origins Includes Loot Boxes

The more you play and master yourself with your assassin Bayek, your level and ability points will gradually increase. One thing that Assassin’s Creed Origins has no shortage of is that of their many side-missions, story quests and frequent combat situations that will develop Bayek into the legendary fighter he is known as. The game will make you explore the exotic location of Egypt like the Mediterranean rough waters, pyramids of Giza and giant temple at Memphis throughout the desert path.

One very appreciative aspect of the enjoyable side missions and quests are that you can complete them whenever you want and however you please. You have absolute freedom in doing so. In the mean time, you can master your assassin into a strong warrior to take on any upcoming challenge that is thrown at him.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is already out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to play and enjoy the ancient world of the brotherhood that was formed to protect the rights of the oppressed. The game will be seeing it's Xbox One X release on November 7. With everything it offers and the improved gameplay it displayed, Assassin’s Creed Origins will truly embrace the spirit of Action RPG.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Launch Trailer

The tenth major title of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Origins is about to be launched within a very few days and everyone is just waiting to jump onto the game as soon as it comes out. Ubisoft decided to delight the eagerly waiting fans with a little treat and so they dropped the launch trailer for the game to give us some more visual spectacle as well as more insight into the game.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: Launch Trailer | Legend of the Assassin

We want to talk about what the Assassin’s Creed Origins launch trailer is all about but be sure to check out the trailer titled "Legend of The Assassin" below before that.

By now, almost all of us know that the brotherhood of Assassin’s Creed was originated in ancient Egypt and Bayek is the first in the line of warriors who would start this crusade against the system all by himself. Bayek was simply a revolutionary who wanted to become the aid of the oppressed against the wicked and corrupt folks of that time on Egypt and thus, his mission soon turned him into a renowned assassin.

Since, Assassin’s Creed Origins is a prequel or a soft-reboot rather than a sequel like any other previous games of the series, the gameplay and the setting might seem a little bit different at times. Origins offer you a more expanded open-world in-game environment and there is a skill tree to crank up your abilities to inflict more damage and hit points as you progress. Lots of the element that you will find here are actually how the legends of their Brotherhood grew over time.

As we said earlier, the trailer offers more sneak peak to the game's action and story that you will eventually unfold playing it and provide you a clear idea of how the Assassin Brotherhood came to form in the first place. Some of the action-packed cut-scenes from the game also made it to the trailer as well. Although it would not be like any of the previous Assassin's Creed games but Origins do feature the series' trademark parkour-like movements during the fights.

Releasing worldwide on October 27, Assassin’s Creed Origins will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also see its Xbox One X debut on November 7 with 4K displays to experience enhanced high-definition environments. To embrace the full-action of the RPG, the game actually lets you explore the whole country of Egypt.

Assassin's Creed Origins Includes Loot Boxes

In these days, loot boxes are a hot-topic in modern games and there are endless debates online whether or not this trend should continue. Many of today's biggest titles from industry giants like Destiny 2 and Forza 7 are adding this feature to their game and by the looks of it; other companies are also following this. Though most of the time these loot boxes are acquired through some in-game currency, most recent release like Middle-Earth: Shadow of War has changed the idea by letting you spend some real-world cash to make it easier.

So what does that have to do with Assassin's Creed Origins? Well, till date, the Assassin's Creed franchise has been letting us to do some micro-transactions and spend in-game currency to modify our playable character and it was only for decorative purpose. However, in cases like Assassin's Creed Unity, this also meant to make the player somewhat overpowered than normal. The series previously let you buy specific items or gears with its unique virtual currency called 'Helix Credits'.

assassin's creed origins loot box
Assassin's Creed Origins Includes Loot Boxes

Judging by the recent gameplay clips found on YouTube, it appears that Ubisoft is joining the wave of loot box trend and that starts with Assassin's Creed Origins. Till now, it seems that the items are only purchasable with in-game currency and it is still unclear if they would allow the players to enjoy this feature to which extent.

As assassin Bayek would explore the locations of ancient Egypt, he will come across to travelling merchant in several places who is a young boy named Reda. The loot boxes found in Nomad's Bazaar shop are called Heka chests and it will contain either a weapon or shield by random. Now, developers still need to disclose or players need to find out if they can acquire these weapons and gears in-game or are they just exclusive to Heka chests. As soon as you purchase the chest for 3000 Drachma, the item within will reveal itself.

The vendor Reda also sells rare Carbon Crystals, which will come in handy for crafting. The in-game e-store features a Mummy costume for Bayek and it is achievable just by playing the game along with the other items of the store. Since one of the previous Assassin's Creed game offered us the opportunity to spend cold-hard cash, we can only speculate if they are going to do that again with their latest release.

Scheduled to launch at October 27, Assassin's Creed Origins will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There will be an education mode in Origins that will teach the player more about Egypt of that time.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: Order of the Ancients Trailer

Ubisoft is coming back with Assassin’s Creed Origins in October, 2017 but that's no newsflash! The tenth release of Assassin’s Creed series plants a lot of hope in the hearts of the players, who's been a fan of the series for so long and still disappointed over Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. We've already witnessed the Assassin’s Creed Origins: Cinematic Trailer a short while back and boy, it was truly mesmerizing. Now, there is another one to knock us out of our feet.

assassin's creed origin order of the ancients
Assassin’s Creed Origins: Order of the Ancients Trailer

Since the beginning of the formation of the brotherhood of assassins, there was always a Templar, whom this shadow cult has always opposed throughout the ages. As "Origins" depicts the rise of their killer tribe and the assassin Bayek will be the lead character, I believe it is safe to assume that he is the original Assassin who took matters into his own hands. In this case, he stands out opposing the Order of the Ancients, who are the Templars here.

Witness the rise of the Order of the Ancients in this newest Assassin’s Creed Origins trailer before we go deep.

Now, this is nowhere mentioned directly suggested in the trailer but given the fact that this is the starting of all that created the Assassin’s Creed, Order of the Ancients are the true ancestors of Templar groups that originated in ancient Egypt.

Just like the Templars, the Order of the Ancients is a group of people in power who would change and manipulate various historical events as they see fit. They worked secretly, had political influence and even controlled the Pharaohs. These made them a pretty formidable opposing force to be reckoned with.

As both Bayek and the Order of the Ancients are the forefathers of today's Assassin’s Creed and the Templars, it was natural that they would come into conflict and the assassin would pick up his weapon to fight against this ruthless oppressor. The trailer also gives a small glimpse at the game’s naval combat and finally ends with Bayek encountering an oncoming elephant.

On October 27, PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, Assassin’s Creed Origins will be out worldwide and you can take the role of assassin Bayek to go on a journey into the open-world environment of Egypt to hunt down his targets.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege's Blood Orchid is Bugged

So far, Ubisoft tried their best to make Rainbow Six Siege update Blood Orchid as satisfying as possible but looks like the reality took a very different turn. Rainbow Six Siege new operators and other game aspects were introduced as well as SDU operators Ying and Lesion. Despite taking time and giving the much needed update, Ubisoft still failed to live up to the expectation. You might wanna ask why is that? Well, it's because of bugs.

Apparently, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is bringing in reports of many issues and there is a Megathread on Reddit about it, which you are welcome to check out.

rainbow six siege pc dlc
Rainbow Six Siege's Blood Orchid is Bugged

Rainbow Six Siege DLC Blood Orchid starts giving reports of the game either freezing or crashing and unfortunately, that is not the end of it. Players have also complained about not being able to purchase item like rifle and facing issues like rubber banding issues while they try to jump over shields. Rainbow Six Siege PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have different types of errors but sometimes that concern is same on all platforms.

On PC, your update may not show up on uPlay but you will still be able to play the game anyway. Sometime, the update downloads several times and in case of Steam, it may not reach the content server, leading to fail to update. Stay with your teammate option may not often work and while you keep pressing Alt+Tab to choose which operator to play, this might cause the game to freeze. Also, you might not be allowed to create a local custom game.

On PlayStation 4, players are being unable to hear each other out even though they had their microphones on. Your shop will say that you already own all the elite sets, whereas you don't. Every time you switch an operator, your setting will be set to default, which is frustrating at times. Mostly, PS4 version suffers the audio problem in many spheres and lastly, even if you have enough space, it says that you are unable to download the update for space storage.

Rainbow Six Siege Need Bugfixes

In Xbox One, there is no custom game playlist at all. It is simply gone. You cannot find Elite skins in the shop. It is quite disturbing when you see members of the same team are often split up into different matches. When you are on a new operator, you may not be able to equip the universal skins. Oh, and the map thumbnail and name are now taken over by a black screen.

Above mentioned are only a few of the trouble that has been irritating the gamers worldwide. There are too many to write down without making it any longer that it already is. Ubisoft still haven't officially responded to these but since they frequently do scheduled maintenance every now and then, hopefully they will take this to notice. Otherwise, you and your Rainbow team will be on your own.

Assassin's Creed Anime Announced

The producer and the mastermind behind the most recent animated Castlevania TV Series on Netflix, Adi Shankar, have recently announced his upcoming project that he took. He declares that fans should be anticipating an anime adaption of the ever popular Assassin’s Creed. Though there was no confirmation of any sort from Ubisoft officials, much of the news had come from one of Adi Shankar’s recent post on Facebook, where he briefly told us about his new project.

Assassin's Creed Anime Announced

According to the post, Shankar is quite happy to announce that his new project, Assassin’s Creed anime series. He continues by telling us how he thought it would be almost impossible or perhaps unimaginable that he could take the world of Assassin's Creed to another level. Shankar emphasizes on following your passion regardless of what others' says.

While this is an important step in moving Ubisoft's popular franchise to another level, it is clear that this is not the first time that the series has tried to transcend its video game world. In 2016, Michael Fassbender was picked as the major character Callum Lynch in the Assassin’s Creed live-action movie, where he revisited his ancestor’s memories to discover the location of the Apple of Eden.

Many people believed the film didn’t really do well yet it projected the fact that the series had potentials of working outside the video game and perhaps Adi Shankar should consider this in the new anime series. The series is included in Ubisoft Motion Pictures slate alongside a Splinter Cell movie adaptation starring Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal starrer The Division movie.

Shankar is quite famous for his many notable works as executive producer in Dredd, Lone Survivor etc. Apart from that, he is a content creator, a notable gamer and a staunch fan of the Assassin’s Creed. Although he never disclosed anything, not a single character, settings or even a release date apart from the fact that he has been asked to create an original story by Ubisoft. Fans still expect a huge surprise from his involvement to the project.

Assassin's Creed TV Series Confirmed

Developer studio Ubisoft has finally unveiled its brand-new project which is Assassin’s Creed TV Series to expand their already popular franchise even further. Aymar Azazia, Assassin’s Creed head of content, shares this info at the Reddit AMA session. However, he has chosen to refrain from disclosing any other details about the series beforehand. Even while he chose to make the details a secret, Azaizia only promises to deliver the fans nothing but the best.

It is clear that an Assassin’s Creed TV show has, for now, not been formally announced. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, said that he had a formal talk with Netflix for an Assassin’s Creed TV series.

Assassin's Creed TV Series Confirmed

As for now, it seems the Assassin’s Creed TV show would perhaps be produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures; Ubisoft’s TV and motion picture division. Ubisoft Motion Picture has previously produced the Nickelodeon TV show Rabbids Invasion as well as the Assassin’s Creed live-action movie, which came out in December 2016, starring actor Michael Fassbender. Also, as a major hint on the Assassin’s Creed TV show, Ubisoft is on the move on Assassin’s Creed sequel.

In the hope of getting more details, during AMA, Azaizia was interviewed about the new rumored Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Empire, about which, Azaizia gave no significant node but it will presumably be set to have its setting in Egypt and a release date is set for later this year. Well, we can only assume that as Ubisoft did not release any major game title in 2016. Now, it is clear that Ubisoft’s cross media has finally tied up unto the task of expanding Assassin’s Creed franchise with a TV adaptation of the popular video game series.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Trailer Feat. Idris Elba

With all the rumor going out these days regarding the anticipation of Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation, Luther) becoming the next James Bond actor, we thought we would bring something new to the table. Yes, we are talking about this handsome British actor again but not about the James Bond speculations about him. Idris Elba stars in a brand-new minute long live-action TV spot trailer for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege from Ubisoft.

tom clancy’s rainbow six siege trailer idris elba
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Feat. Idris Elba

Witness as Elba narrates what are the stakes you have to go though to achieve greatness and how to survive the siege.

The trailer perfectly matches the mood of Tom Clancy's first-person shooter franchise and Elba in his natural calm and devil may care state, goes through phases of the action. All the guns blazing, explosions going on everywhere and in the middle of the rampage of the special ops combat mission, he walks forward pointing out the obvious, that sometimes improvisation is the best strategy for survival.

The Los Angeles agency Omelet, are responsible for this piece of cinematic brilliance and reveals that they had a different idea at the beginning which was a bit comical by the way. Then when the creative team started playing, they quickly realized that to match the tonal voice of the intensity of the game, they need to amp up the seriousness of the action. This is why; they decided to go with an actor of Elba's caliber.

Instead of making the trailer with high-octane battle sequences from the in-game footage, the guys at Omelet decided to make it a live-action trailer. This really heightened the sense of realism and the seriousness of Rainbow Six Siege. In an old warehouse in Prague, the production team set-up the stage for the grand play to take place and completed the work within several days.

The series returns after a long break with Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and it will be released worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from December 1, 2015.
