  • ‘Far Cry 4′ Overrun expansion pack available today for Sony, Microsoft consoles

    Ubisoft's Far Cry 4 has an all-new expansion pack available for previous and current-gen Sony and Microsoft systems today. The PC version however is due out tomorrow. Dubbed "Overrun", the add-on bolts on a new vehicle, a PvP mode and even more maps, which should keep existing players even busier than they have been recently. The new vehicle introduced is a dune buggy which should introduce even more piloting fun to the mix. The new PvP mode also introduces a new dynamic to the game, as the Far Cry 4 Developer Diary notes below: Throughout the match, three designated locations will activate with...

  • ‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ Patch 4 is huge, even larger for Xbox One users

    Assassin's Creed Unity is one of the buggiest games in recent memory. When I first played it back in September, I thought it was a PS4 glitch that caused the console to choke. After playing the game on Xbox One though, it clearly wasn't just a Sony problem. Unity's essentially a termite mound of pop-in issues, frame-rate hitches and poorly finished graphics on anything lower than ultra (I'm talking PC now, of course), but Ubisoft has released a shiny new patch today that will hopefully fix everyone's moans and groans. At least we hope so. Hilariously though, and perhaps the most...

  • Far Cry 4 review: discover your primal self

    Welcome to the vast and unforgiving wilderness of Kyrat -- a fictional region in the Himalayas and the setting for Ubisoft’s latest title, Far Cry 4. Get ready to enter a full-fledged civil war in a land of myths and legends. In its lengthy 35-hours of gameplay, you will be introduced to a string of pleasingly unique personalities, from a Bible-crazed weapons-dealer to a peculiar pair of deceiving stoners. Boasting a more refined and improved Far Cry recipe, this title is assured to meet most (if not all) of your gaming needs. Story Time You play as Ajay Ghale, a Kyrati-born-American-raised young man,...

  • 5 videos that will get you excited about ‘The Crew’ all over again

    The Crew has probably been one of the most eagerly anticipated racing games of recent memory. Sure, it's not as pure as the Forza or Gran Turismo series, but its new open world, social take on an age-old genre has got many a tongue wagging, and many a right foot tapping. The game has been in my Christmas stocking list for quite a while now and tomorrow it'll finally be released to a worldwide and extremely patient-up-to-now audience. A new take on driving games will see a more social, open world experience than before. Think of it like GTA V with an...

  • Far Cry 4 pirates mistakenly reveal themselves through FOV feature complaints

    Game developers (unlike the music industry) have tackled the issue of piracy through sneakily intelligent means, often stripping games of essential features. One recalls Batman's inability to glide bug in Arkham Asylum, that filled many players' favourite superhero with crippling acrophobia. With that said, are you one of those dishonest few who've pirated Far Cry 4? Chances are, if you don't have any Field Of View options and you've complained about it online (especially on Reddit), Ubisoft's watching you. Note just how many deleted comments are in the thread. The feature, which allows players to see more of the game's majestic landscapes...

  • Far Cry 4 launches 18 November with Harpoon Gun for the Limited Edition

    Far Cry 4 is real and launches 18 November 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. Developers Ubisoft have announced the upcoming sequel to one of gaming's best open-world shooter, saying that Far Cry 4 will be set in the fictional Himalayan region of Kyrat (we checked on Google Maps), far removed from the steamy jungle settings of Far Cry 3. Far Cry 4 launches 20 November 2014 for Europe, Middle East and African territories, a mere two days after the US launch. Those who pre-order the Limited Edition gain three exclusive single player 'Hurk's Redemption'...
