Ubisoft Forward - conference video in first post

Recommended Posts

Probably not the best name for that, considering recent events.

Any hint of a next-gen update to the Siege engine would be most hype. Pretty sure they announced it would be ready for launch but probably a straight port with minimal improvements.

I really miss E3 week - where you got everything in the space of a few days.... this dribs and drabs of info over months approach - is boring me silly.

Cant wait to climb more icon spewing towers.


They’ve moved on from that. Instead of a few towers that show icons within 50 miles, now you talk to a bunch of NPCs who reveals icons in a 10 mile radius, while Ubisoft boast about how organic the discovery in their games now.

The thing is, with E3 the hype for one big event seeps into the others. If I'm watching the Sony and Microsoft ones, I find myself also checking out the likes of EA and Ubi. Might even check out the PC gaming teleshopping show for a laugh. Now that it's all spread out over several months with each publisher doing its own little livestream, it's all far less interesting.

 

Have to admit though, that Ubisoft games always look good and they make their concepts sound great. In reality they usually turn out to be Assassin's Creed but with hacking or Assassin's Creed but fps, but that's neither here nor there.

 

Also, I discovered recently that Splinter Cell Blacklist is in fact surprisingly brilliant. I'm really looking forward to seeing a new Splinter Cell, if nothing else - hopefully of a similar quality to Blacklist.

Maybe I need to try again.  Had it in a bundle and bounced off it after about 15 minutes.

My main hope is that after their Ghost Recon Breakpoint rethink they've realised that not every game has to be a level-gated grind-fest with inconsequential loot, tedious spreadsheet-management via horribly fiddly cursor UIs and an out-of-place multiplayer hub.

 

In the first half of this generation they were making some of my favourite games, having nailed third person traversal and action in open-world environments. The company-wide diktat to make everything into a numbers-driven RPG-lite has had a really negative effect on their output in latter half, in my opinion.

 

Watch Dogs Legion is still my most anticipated game, having loved the first two, and with Clint Hocking pioneering some awesome-sounding mechanics I've long wanted to see in a AAA open-world game. I just hope he's not been shackled to the current Ubisoft template.

Looking forward to the new mode where you infiltrate an Ubi office and try to find the sex pest using a series of drones and recon cameras.

The Final Fantasy XV approach then?

I am done with ubisoft. 

 

Fed up with their style of repetition. Really want to see a big change in their open world formula

 

Although I do want to see BGAE2.

Whatever happened to BGAE2? Last I heard they were looking for the community to do their work for them.

This just started. No mention of any of the harassment stuff on either the stream or the live chat.

They say there won't be, because everything is pre-recorded. And as we all know, it's impossible to pre-record (or just record) another video to tack on.

Clint did tell people to stay safe, presumably by keeping away from the sex pests in Ubisoft offices.

They're spending what feels like 10 hours on every game. It's all incredibly boring.

Microsoft probably not so hot on the link up with Ubisoft right now.

A little ironic for a game featuring denial of service for large corporations.

 

Edit: never mind. Where's the dancing panda?

You’ve got to get out of Norway because they’re too much into ideas of equality in the workplace.

You know i have never played an Assassins Creed game before. Never interesting enough for me.  

 

This Valhalla game isn't very original surely?  but i like this.

Easy to boycott Ubisoft if they don't make any games people actually want to play. For all the talk of shaking things up, this all looks like the same old shite.
