With two juggernauts launching alongside PS5 and Xbox Series X / Series S, will Ubisoft own launch week next month?
Definitely going for AC Valhalla on PS5. Looking forward to the game and how the PS5 leverages its power. AC Odyssey's loading drove me nuts.
I do wonder if past ubi games will get next gen patches
Ubisoft has become way too formulaic for me in recent years, all of their games kinda feel mostly the same. To each their own though.
Agreed far cry (enter a number, change the protagonist 🤷🏻♂️😂 ) assassins creed isn’t much better and when there’s 4/5 different editions all with their own dlcs and extra missions ripped from main game then a season pass on top and a sequel within 12 months 😅😳🤷 27995;♂️😂 defo a series I can wait on and get 2 for price of one. Watch dogs looks alright but £70 helll nah haha. Ubisoft make good games but ever truly excellent exceptional GOTY contenders. Nope. Solid 8/10 standard 🤷🏻♂️😜
Exactly copy and paste game development when their IP's have so much potential. People don't realize if ubi don't start making better decisions they maybe the next publisher to be sold. They aren't in any sort of stable financial situation
Yeah after Black flag and Farcry 3 it was a lot of rehashing.
Two shitty titles, no way are they dominating. They haven't made a good game since R6S.
3 games within 5 weeks from Ubisoft and I’m interested in all of them. Watch Dogs Legions seems to be an interesting change to that serie. AC: Valhall serms to be as amazing as both Origins and Odyssey, if not even better. And then we have Immortals Fenyx Rising which I already love without touching it. Will be an amzing end to this year 👍
Or a cheap start to next year ;)
Hopefully AC games won't have the XO boosters that otherwise require you to waste a lot of time on doing side fetch quests
No. I won’t be getting anything from them until 3-6 months down the line when it’s being dropped to barely £20 ready for next years entry. Great or at least pretty decent games but a new one each year and £70 a pop these days, no chance. Spider-miles and Observer will do me.
No because if you have played one UBI open world game you have played them all. I have heard of studios using same engines under same publisher but ubi studios use the same exact features from other ubi properties There is a reason ubi is struggling so much financially (yes this is true) when you keep making copy and paste games sooner or later gamers get tired of it. Hopefully none of them future games have XP boosters
Ubisoft use to be good but they are shit now!
Where tf is my rayman legends successor, ubi!?!
Can they compete with Cyberpunk 2077?
That Immortals Fenyx Rising game could be interesting(though not a launch game, I don't think), but I'll wait on the other two. Too much to play right off with Miles and Souls. You really never know though. Hades on Switch/PC was not even on my radar, and then dropped and was surprisingly crazy good. That is one of the coolest parts about gaming, the industry and the surprises. /Spider-Cat
Was going to add Fenyx but its a December release so, opted to not. Could have though!
Maybe it is just me, but immortal feels a little... off... I am not sure why. Watch dog... not gonna lie, didn't enjoy the first one, so I skipped the second one. Pre-ordered AC Valhalla, but honestly, their last two games felt way too long without enough interesting stuff going on, felt like a chores of how many question marks you can get to in an hour.
Personally, I love the Assassins Creed games and I have even enjoyed the less popular ones too and while the 1st Watchdogs was a bit plain, I really enjoyed the sequel. Overall then, I am really excited for both of the newest titles in these series of games, however, there is simply no way I am playing them before Demons Souls or Miles Morales. I think Ubi will own Xbox launch week, but it's a very different proposition on PS5.
Nope - maybe on one console, but definitely not the other. Who would choose anything ubisoft over SM:MM or Demons Souls? I'm still anticipating the inevitable, obligatory ubi downgrade.
Nope in the Uk it will be Cyberpunk and Spiderman for me.
CD Project Red: *giggles* maybe...
Yeah Ubisoft is the king of making average open world games with things like tower, collecting 100 items, DLC story that will be released after 2 months Now they should really start to learn their craft and produce real AAA games like Spiderman , Zelda Breath of the wild, Horizon Zero Dawn, Day's Gone, etc. Real innovative games that don't bother with interesting side quest, coop gameplay or the story but will implement all ingredients and concept from a Ubisoft game.
Funny how you call Ubisoft out for their open world then mention Spiderman and Days Gone which probably have some of the most generic open world stuff this generation.
II know that my English can be broken and sometimes hard to read but basically, my statement was a big sarcasm about how we easily bash Ubisoft yet we praise other companies that blatantly copy all the tropes they have established. I can almost guarantee that Miles Morales will get higher scores compared to both Ubisoft games while bringing nothing new to the spiderman formula or the generic Ubisoft formula while both Ubisoft game will get point taken for stuff that Spiderman won't even bother to include in the game (like Coop or decent side mission). Heck Expect the usual negative Ubisoft curse of too many side quests, Side story doesn't really help the main quest but are wasted potential, Too easy or too hard, the main villain isn't like Vaas, etc.
Their games feel soulless. Extremely competent, but utterly soulless. Remember the old Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six , Prince of Persia days? They had heart.
It's certainly not going to hurt I'm picking up legion along with Spiderman and cyberpunk (pre ordered quite a long time ago) I have a feeling that PS4 launch day resulted in higher sales for ubi and AC4 last launch so they are trying that tact again with two titles
Rarely buy their stuff. Picked up FC4 in a sale a couple of months ago but have hardly touched it. Note to self: stop buying games.
Backlog: Feeeeed me! I’m right there with you lol
