Yesterday Ubisoft had they next ‘direct’ to showcase a few bits they didn’t last time. It really only included details of 4 titles, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Riders Republic and Watchdogs: Legion (again).
So lets talk about my favourite, Fenyx Rising.
This game is an Assassins Creed x Breath of the Wild love child. It looks amazing with the scaled back, less realism graphics. It promises open world with 7 Greek god inspired regions, fluid combat and traversal and customisation.
Game Informer were able to play for 2 hours and have some really good thoughts, out in December I’m glad it’s so soon. Check out some images below.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake
Ooft, this looks rough to be honest. I’m excited the franchise that kicked of Assassins Creed is getting a remake but the graphics look dated, like PS3/ Xbox 360 dated.
Not out until January I wonder if there will be any enhancements.
A racing game based online and in US National Parks (geographically accurate. Includes up to 50 players at once. Not much else to it, I think it’s trying to branch out from the very introverted Trials franchise that is pretty popular and bring in some more fans that maybe miss the likes of SSX.
Watch Dogs: Legion
They talked about some of the DLC content that would be coming to Watchdogs including a Stormzy character. Seems a bit like forward thinking before release so let’s check back on that one.
The Division: The Summit
Division are launching a new PVE (Player versus Environment) game mode called the summit. It’s 100 floors of a skyscraper that you fight enemies on each to progress gradually getting harder.
Personally I love The Division and will at some point check this out. When, I’m not so sure I just need to buds to squad back up!.
All in all I liked what they had to show. Fenyx appeals to me massively as I’m a huge Assassins Creed and Greek mythology fan. I’ll likely be putting in a pre order for that one. Also Ubisoft are a good dev company, with some flaws but some good products.
Going forward Ubisoft are likely in for a good ride with Watchdogs, Valhalla, Far Cry and more launching in the next 6 or so months.
