'We Know We’re Not Taking It Far Enough': A Ubisoft VP Wrestles With Politics In Games

'We Know We’re Not Taking It Far Enough': A Ubisoft VP Wrestles With Politics In Games

A couple of months ago, in a meeting room on the outskirts of the Los Angeles Convention Center during the E3 gaming show, Ubisoft’s Tommy Francois described what he thought would be the ultimate video game.

It would be “a matrix where you get one thousand lives, where you get one thousand mistakes and within these thousand mistakes you get all these different points of view and you get...

The Division 2 Devs Remove New Mode Weeks After Launch To Make It Better

The Division 2 Devs Remove New Mode Weeks After Launch To Make It Better

Adding stuff to a game months after release? That’s usually good news. Removing it a few weeks later? That tends to not go over as well.

Members of The Division 2’s community have been expressing confusion and aggravation since late last week following confirmation that the game’s Expedition area, which was released just last month, is being cycled out tomorrow.

A Ubisoft representative,...

The End Of Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is Finally Within My Reach

The End Of Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is Finally Within My Reach
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

The developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey have been moving the game’s finish line farther out since October of last year, but I think I’m finally about to catch it. This sums up my gaming experience these days, perpetually racing toward a moving goal.

At launch Odyssey was already a marathon, a game with not...

The Division 2’s Big New Update Is As Promising As It Confusing

Ubisoft’s sprawling loot shooter The Division 2 just received its biggest free update since its March launch...except most of it isn’t really free until next week, except for two parts that won’t even be free then, but some of the free stuff won’t be out until the week after next, and one promised part is on ice and…Shall we start this over?

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Final Paid Expansion Is Terrific If You Like The Weird Stuff

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Final Paid Expansion Is Terrific If You Like The Weird Stuff

The most dedicated players of 2009’s Assassin’s Creed II could stray from the Italian Renaissance adventures of Ezio Auditore to solve puzzles that unlocked a 37-second video of a naked Adam and Eve running through a high-tech city in some unknown year BC. That’s the kind of stuff they used to put in Assassin’s Creed games, and how wonderful it is to see a new Assassin’s Creed finally go...

The New Mode In Ghost Recon Wildlands Is A Small-Scale Spin On The Battle Royale Formula

The New Mode In Ghost Recon Wildlands Is A Small-Scale Spin On The Battle Royale Formula

Ghost Recon Wildlands is getting a sequel later this year, so most fans and Ubisoft will move on to that next game. But before that happens, Ubisoft has released one last major update for the game which added a brand new competitive mode called Mercenaries. It blends different elements of Wildlands into a small, focused battle royale-like mode that mostly works.

I haven’t played Wildlands in...

Ubisoft Invites Fans To Make Music For Watch Dogs: Legion, Sparking Exploitation Debate

Ubisoft Invites Fans To Make Music For Watch Dogs: Legion, Sparking Exploitation Debate

Last week, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt ‏announced on Twitter that his music production company, HitRecord, would once again partner with Ubisoft, this time to help the publisher create 10 songs for its upcoming open world hacker game, Watch Dogs: Legion. This immediately re-ignited an old debate about the ethics of soliciting work for big budget games from fans.

Ubisoft Will Ban Players Who Crashed Rainbow Six Siege Matches By Spamming Chat Symbols

Ubisoft Will Ban Players Who Crashed <i>Rainbow Six Siege</i> Matches By Spamming Chat Symbols

Ubisoft just fixed an exploit that was allowing Rainbow Six Siege players to force their opponents to lag by filling up the game’s chat window with random symbols. Players who abused it to get an advantage in the competitive shooter will be temporarily banned.

Exploits in Rainbow Six Siege are like Whac-A-Mole. When one gets fixed—like the Clash glitch that allowed the character to shoot...

Ask Your Doctor About Ubisoft's Latest Game

Ubisoft's doing some wild stuff on the fringes these days, from experimental climbing with Grow Home to...a medical game called Dig Rush to aid with the treatment of Amblyopia?!

The company announced the collaboration between Ubisoft Montreal and Amblyotech today.

Dig Rush is meant to help treat what's commonly referred to as "lazy eye," which can cause blindness if not treated properly. Other...

Ubisoft Bans Player-Created Assassin's Creed Quests That Let You Level Up By Doing Nothing

Ubisoft Bans Player-Created Assassin's Creed Quests That Let You Level Up By Doing Nothing

Last month, Ubisoft released a tool that allows players to create their own quests in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Players could choose to have other players’ custom quests appear in their games.. Almost immediately came a mess of quests dedicated to rapid-fire power-leveling . “To each their own,” you might say of this questionable practice, but Ubisoft has decided to put its...

The Division 2 Is Testing Some Much-Requested Features

The Division 2 Is Testing Some Much-Requested Features

There’s going to be a lot less to complain about regarding The Division 2 if a batch of features going live in a test build this week make it into the proper game later this month. Ubisoft’s impressive but contentious shooter appears to be getting flashlights (much requested! ), badly needed buffs for gadget skills, and even matchmaking for its raid, though there’s a big catch to that last...

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Players Are Creating Custom Quests To Level Up By Doing Nothing

Earlier this month, Ubisoft released a free new Story Creator mode for players of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s a simple tool that lets you stitch together your own original quests in Odyssey using a limited set of options and assets. Yet even in its rudimentary state, you can still add experience and monetary rewards to your quests. Which is why the story creator missions I’m seeing in my...

Tim Rogers checked out the Ubisoft booth at E3, and shenanigans ensued. Watch the video for a look at Watch Dogs: Legion, a very intense staring contest, and the one question that has surely been on everyone’s minds: What, exactly, is a Ghost Recon Breakpoint?

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Story Creator Is Simple But Fun

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Story Creator Is Simple But Fun

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey released a story creator this week, allowing players to cobble together their own questlines and share them with others. The website for constructing handmade stories is easy to use and fun to tinker with, even in the final results of that tinkering can be a little awkward.

To create your own stories, log into a new website, where you’re able to choose a cast of...

I was playing Ghost Recon: Breakpoint as the assault class, Fixit. I had been doing my best to act as a tank for my teammates by getting out front and shooting people with my assault rifle. But my injuries started to add up: First I got nicked in the arm, then the leg....

Ah Yes, A $688 Assassin's Creed Statue

Ah Yes, A $688 Assassin's Creed Statue

Ubisoft and Pure Arts announced this new Assassin’s Creed statue today, which is both exquisitely-detailed and insanely-priced.

It weighs in at 20 pounds, and stands over 24 inches tall, so that price is actually pretty standard for something of this quality and size. But still.

In terms of effects, it’s a statue so don’t expect much, but the blue animus stuff does glow with LED lighting, so...
