During Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, they showcased an all new IP entitled For Honor and we now have a glimpse of what the boxart will look like. Take a look at the image above as it seems like the official boxart for the game. For Honor impressed E3 show-goers with its unique gameplay and crazy battles. I wasn’t too sure but I am not going to cast judgement until I get my hands on this one myself.
In all its majesty of a massive US map and its action-driving splendor, The Crew comes down to one simple creed: NEVER DRIVE ALONE. The world of The Crew is simply too massive, too loaded with activities for it to be experienced alone. Watch how seamless the connected experience of driving and exploring in The Crew is and all the different cooperative and competitive interactions you can have within the sprawling network of friends and rivals.
The Crew is set to arrive at retail on November 11th.
Ubisoft has confirmed the official release date for the Watch Dogs on Wii U. The game is headed to Nintendo’s latest system on November 21 in the UK and November 20th in US. Here is what they had to say in their official press release:
Watch Dogs will take full advantage of the Wii U specific hardware with a detailed and interactive map of Chicago displayed on the Wii U GamePad. The game also features Off-TV Play, letting gamers continue playing Watch Dogs solely on the Wii U GamePad.
The development of Watch Dogs on Wii U is being led by Ubisoft Bucharest, in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal.
Watch Dogs tells the story of Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt his family, players will be able to monitor and hack their enemies by manipulating everything connected to the city’s Central Operating System (ctOS). Watch Dogs lets the player use Chicago as their ultimate weapon and exact their own style of revenge.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and EMEA Executive Director Alain Corre accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Thanks to BlueByte, RedLynx and Jim Ryan from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for the nomination! We challenge Andrew House from Sony, Phil Harrison from Microsoft and Miyamoto-san from Nintendo to participate and raise awareness for ALS.
Ubisoft has just announced that it has shipped 8 million copies of Watch Dogs since the game’s launch in May. The news stems from the official company announcement in its Q1 2014 – 2015 financial report.
In its first week at retail, Watch Dogs sales hit 4 million, making it Ubisoft’s “best-selling game ever in week one.” It also broke the publisher’s day-one sales records.
“The success of Watch Dogs and the quality of our games portfolio presented at this year’s E3 highlight our strategic positioning as well as our continuous drive for innovation, and affirm our long-term approach,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in today’s report. “Watch Dogs is now well-positioned as a major franchise and we will be able to replicate and build on its success in the coming years. Its sales performance testifies to Ubisoft’s expertise as a creator of blockbuster brands.”
Awesome news Ubisoft. A Wii U version of the popular title is still set to ship later this year.
