E3 2014: Next Gen Is Finally Here Thanks To Ubisoft

Current-gen consoles are in an extraordinarily tricky position. On one hand, they're far more powerful than last-gen's boxes, and equally more capable of delivering innovative experiences -- especially with the newest PlayStation camera and Xbox One's bundled Kinect. However, on the other hand, with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 still the primary system in most households, and with an -- all considering -- paltry amount of their successors in the hands of gamer's across the world, it's hard for a company to commit to a limited demographic. Ubisoft, the gaming juggernaut behind Far Cry, Assassin's Creed and the recently released Watch Dogs, doesn't give a care about business norms, though. (Assassin's Creed Unity, E3, PS4, Xbox One)

I suppose if by "Next Gen" you mean dancing games.
BlakHavoc  +   392d ago
No he means AC unity, The Division, Rainbow 6, Far Cry 4
zeuanimals  +   392d ago
Dat next-gen voice chat. LOL, oh well. Actors and scripts do what actors and scripts do. The BF Hardline gameplay was all scripted too.
showtimefolks  +   392d ago
As high as people are on The Division we have seen very limited footage, WE have seen scripted events

but i disagree everyone is doing their part for next gen not only UBI. EA's dragon age looks stunning, ME will be awesome. The order 1886 is like playing CGI cutscene

MS doing the same with sunset overdrive among others

I feel like Ubisoft's games weren't just pushing incredible visuals but also pushing for new levels of interactivity.
Volkama  +   392d ago
But it's Ubisoft, and their final products are not typically a match for their E3 reveals. So say Watch-dogs and Farcry 3 anyway.

Of all the big publishers, Ubisoft do seem quickest to embrace the new. It is a good thing, even if the fruit is occassionally poisonous (Fighter Within?).

yeah to bad for those games the pc versions will probably not be playable. ive given up on ubi for pc they dont give a crap about us lol still wondering when that watchdogs patch is going to be released same for the ac4 patch that fixes the horrible sttutters at 60fps(benchmarked it didnt go below 45fps yet stuttered like it was 15fps with gsync on sli off/on) no matter how incredible ac unity will look it will still run like garbage on pc and ubi wonder's why we pirate their games, because whats the point of paying for a game that i wont be able to finish or possibly run. such a shame id gladly pay if i didnt think ubi were trash pc devs. ac4 is the last ubi game i buy until i see some effort on the pc platform. pirated watch dogs and what do you know just like ac4 stuttering mess cant play on ultra @1080p with a 5000 dollar pc...bet farcry 4 will have crap sli like farcry 3 as well.

so at valkilmer i can really tell you're not much of a pc gamer when it comes to ubi because if you were you'd be just as bitter as me right now.

AC Unity almost looks better than the Order 1886.By the way,does anyone know if God Of War 5 is coming or not????
miyamoto  +   392d ago
Funny, Farcry 4 looked fantastic but it felt like an Uncharted 2 Among Thieves in first person view in the Nepal levels!

Which leads me to say that Uncharted 4's graphics made it official that next gen has really come upon us!
RonRico  +   392d ago
I know what you mean. I thought it was Tomb Raider in first person for a second.
Swiggins  +   392d ago
Funny thing about setting games in similar locales, they look a little bit alike.

Have you ever noticed that all the movies set in New York City look alike?

Rainbow 6 stole the whole show for me. Nothing else kept me glued to the screen.
lyvon  +   392d ago
Agreed. AC Unity is yet another Assassins Creed game I am going to buy and love. But the R6 was amazing.
Clown_Syndr0me  +   392d ago
Unity looked great, should be feeling fresh with co op.
But my greatest memories from online FPS still come from RB6 Vegas. That casino map I used to play over and over again...
airshiraz  +   392d ago
assassin unity is truly first next gen title
is farcry4 open world?it seemed it had giant levels like battlefield badcompany 2 and crysis 1
BlakHavoc  +   392d ago

u know u don't have to buy them right when they come out. finish one game and then buy the other and by that time rest of those games should be cheaper etc. and to be honest that's a lot of games how would u even have the time to finish all before the new batch of games come out lol
BlakHavoc  +   391d ago
Your right about not having the time to play them all simultaneously lol, i'll probably end up buying maybe 3 games a month and then picking up others later, the ones I want to play the most i'll get first. So AC unity, GTA V, and Driveclub in October, Far Cry and CoD in November. December may be the month for Evolve, Dragon Age, and the Crew.
HollowedSoul14  +   392d ago
so no next gen nhl 2015 this year ? :(
Agent_hitman  +   392d ago
I must admit, I was blown away by majority of Game Demos and Trailers that I've watched on E3.. The Next Gen is indeed here..
Perjoss  +   391d ago
Farcry looked really good but Batman and No Mans Sky stole the show for me.
Bimkoblerutso  +   391d ago
Yeah, that Batman...good god.

Though I have to say, I'm a little worried about him keeping his "no kill" policy intact with that tank.
Phoenix76  +   391d ago
Same here. Really looking forward to rocksteadys new batman game. Didn't rate WB Montreals arkham origins all that well. Felt let it was more of an expansion pack. And NMS, wow is all I can say. Don't know bout anyone else but I kinda feel that it has an Elite: frontier crossed with mace griffin feel to it, but with far better gfx. Can't wait.
I_am_Batman  +   391d ago
Batman really made my jaw drop. I wasn't expecting it to be that great.
renerak  +   391d ago
My fav was AC1, and i too played them all and none of the other games ever impressed me as 1. Ac1 was for me the most mature game in the series, i loved Altairs story and i loved the game. I expected witcher 3 to blow me away and ac to be yeah ok cool. But unbelievably AC was the one that impressed me and witcher 3 became ok cool. The point is for the 1st time in a very long time i am impressed by an assassins creed game. Unity looks like a true sequel with the spirit of the master assassin Altair. I really can't wait to see more, and also know more abt that dynamic mission gameplay system.
