Find out what The Division's Dark Zone is all about in this story trailer

The Dark Zone is The Division’s free-for-all area, where teams of survivors can shoot at each other over weapons and presumably other stuff. The zone was shown off in an E3 demo, and I’ll be honest: it left me feeling lukewarm, at least until the betrayal at the end. There’s a story to this area, though, and maybe that’s exciting? 

Let’s find out!

Anno 2205's beautiful future is powered by moon rocks

When last we saw Ubisoft’s Anno series, it had taken the bold decision to leave history behind and travel into the brave new world of the year 2070. Four years later, developer Blue Byte are looking to the future once more for their next game. But they’re also looking up, since their new game - Anno 2205 - is heading in an interesting new skyward direction. 

This time, we’re going to the moon.

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate trailer offers (probably) E3's only high-speed carriage chase

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate trailer offers (probably) E3's only high-speed carriage chase

Update: We've now got some gameplay footage of Evie Frye in action with her Cane Sword. 

The Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate E3 trailer is not really footage - there’s plenty of that elsewhere already - but a cobble-shaken rattle through the game’s salient features: vehicular chases, grappling hooks, and straight-up grappling.

Trackmania Turbo trailer revealed, game coming out November 26

Trackmania Turbo trailer revealed, game coming out November 26

Ubisoft revealed the new Trackmania during their E3 press conference. Trackmania Turbo is headed from PC to consoles, along with all the custom maps that the series is known for. It will be interesting to see whether this can resurrect the racing franchise, which lost a lot of momentum following Trackmania United and Nations.

To judge from what they showed, they appear to be back on track.

The Division gets release date, and monstrous "Dark Zone" betrayal mechanics

The Division has looked like a gorgeous and evocative multiplayer shooter since it debuted, but today at their E3 presser, Ubisoft revealed the depths of betrayal and cruelty to which players will be able to descend in the game’s newly-revealed “Dark Zone".

Think of the Dark Zone as null sec in EVE: a place of anarchy and treachery, even among groups of friends.

For Honor is a 4v4 medieval melee combat game from the makers of Assassin's Creed

Ubisoft have begun their E3 with a new game in an unfamiliar genre which, according to CEO Yves Guillemot, couldn’t wait until later in the show.

For Honor is a melee medieval combat game from Ubi’s flagship studio in Montreal, which looks to be equally inspired by Dark Souls and MOBAs - and perhaps the less zeitgeisty Dynasty Warriors.

30% of games sold are open world, and Ubisoft is making the most of that

30% of games sold are open world, and Ubisoft is making the most of that

Ubisoft held a pretty interesting investor call this week where they discussed the publisher’s record breaking financial year. During the call, CEO Yves Guillemot stated that in 2014 open world games were responsible for 30% of the total games market share. He went on to demonstrate that in the top ten selling games of 2014, five of them were open world, and three of them were Ubisoft's open world games. 

It looks like, despite Unity’s hiccup, that Ubisoft are still in a rather strong position.

More like Long Division — Ubisoft delay post-apocalyptic multiplayer shooter to 2016

It seems like only yesterday we were watching the first gameplay footage of The Division from E3, aquiver with anticipation and fear that it might never come out on PC. Well, it’s starting to feel like that nightmare is coming true: in Ubisoft’s latest report to investors, the French games giant announced that we won’t be stalking the streets of New York until 2016 at the earliest.

Keep an eye on Big Ben: Assassin's Creed: Syndicate livestream happening a bit later on

The game once whispered about as Assassin’s Creed: Victory - because, brilliantly, Victorians - is now Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate. It’s the first full game in the series to be built by Ubisoft Quebec, after they impressed with their Black Flag DLC - and quite possibly the first Assassin’s Creed to have swappable protagonists in brother-sister duo Jacob and Evie.

After more leaks than you’d find in a chicken pie, Ubisoft are finally ready to talk to the great unwashed.
