Take A Peek Inside Eagle Flight and Werewolves Within

May 03, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

This year, Ubisoft will take two big steps into virtual reality, beginning with Eagle Flight – an aerial open-world game about eagles in a post-human Paris – and continuing with Werewolves Within, which invites groups of players to rat out their neighbors as they work together to find out who among them is a monster in disguise. Experiencing these games through a VR headset makes them feel almost real; seeing a 3D Paris spread out before you with a clear sense of height and distance is exhilarating, while the three-dimensional presence of the townsfolk in Werewolves Within gives the game a conspiratorial closeness. We can’t replicate the full experience here, but (with some help from Eagle Flight Programming Team Lead Vicki Ferguson), we can give you a small taste of both games in this video:

Both Eagle Flight and Werewolves Within are set to arrive for VR devices on PC and PS4 in fall 2016. For more on Ubisoft’s VR games, check out our previous coverage:

The Division – Operation ISAC Update Puts Division Agents in the Crosshairs

May 03, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

Following last week’s overheated episode, Division tech Simon Keyes has put his pants back on just in time to uncover a new threat: a video offering New York’s criminal factions a bounty of weapons crates in exchange for dead Division Agents. Obviously this can’t stand, and Simon has some ideas on what to do about it.

Your goal this week is to undermine enemy faction leaders, which means doing the following:

• Kill 20 Elite enemies in the Dark Zone [ISAC.exe]
• Deconstruct 20 items of Blue or higher quality
• Kill 40 NPCs with headshots
• Complete 10 Main Missions on Hard difficulty

Added to The Division as part of the Incursions update, Operation ISAC adds free weekly challenges for high-level players every Tuesday on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. To keep tabs on the challenges, and the rewards for completing them, visit the official site. And for more on The Division, check out these stories:

Ubisoft’s Hybride Studio Enters Alliance With Industrial Light & Magic

April 28, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

Hybride Technologies, the Ubisoft-owned visual effects studio that helped create the look of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is teaming up with a special-effects giant. To better continue its high-profile work in film, the studio announced a strategic alliance with Industrial Light & Magic, the George Lucas-founded visual-effects house that has worked on… well, most of the blockbusters you’ve seen in recent decades, with a long list of credits that include Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, and Marvel’s Avengers, in addition to the Star Wars and Indiana Jones sagas.

“Over these few years, we’ve developed a great connection with the team at ILM, and it’s exactly for that reason that they’ve decided to entrust Hybride as their partner in Quebec,” says Pierre Raymond, president and head of operations at Hybride. “This alliance is a huge vote of confidence that will allow us to consolidate our position in the VFX industry and inevitably strengthen our recruitment capacity.”

The alliance represents a big move for Hybride, which began in 1991 as Quebec’s first visual-effects company, and whose first Ubisoft project was Assassin’s Creed Lineage, the YouTube-only prequel to Assassin’s Creed II.

“In our search to collaborate with the industry’s best talent, Hybride has consistently risen to the top, proving time and again their ability to execute visual effects work for us at the highest level,” says ILM Executive in Charge, Global Studio Gretchen Libby. “ILM places a high value on innovation, creativity and technological expertise, as does Hybride. Today’s announcement is the result of this shared vision.”

Assassin’s Creed Series 5 Figures Now Heading to Stores

April 28, 2016 By: Sniper Category: Whats Up?

Despite the absence of a new Assassin’s Creed game this year, the Assassins are keeping busy thanks to Series 5 of McFarlane Toys’ Assassin’s Creed action figures, shipping to stores now. The new lineup features three familiar faces from three different Assassin’s Creed games – Il Tricolore Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Revolutionary Connor from Assassin’s Creed III, and Union Jacob Frye from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. From the various insignias on Jacob’s clothing to the Join or Die colonial flag on Connor’s quiver, each figure has an outstanding level of detail that really needs to be seen up close to be appreciated, and we’re going to give you the chance to do just that.

The UbiBlog is giving you an opportunity to win an Assassin’s Creed Series 5 action figure from McFarlane Toys signed by Todd McFarlane himself. All you have to do is to correctly answer the Assassin’s Creed trivia questions below and send them to us at ubi.blog@ubisoft.com. We’ll randomly select winners from the pool of entrants that submit correct answers between April 28 and midnight May 6 (PDT). If you are selected as a winner, the figure you receive will be at the discretion of McFarlane Toys. Giveaway is only open to residents of the United States.

Here are the trivia questions:

In Assassin’s Creed II, what does Ezio see if he lingers too long by the shore of a certain underground lake?

Other than Assassin backgrounds and a tenuous genetic connection, what do Altair, Ezio, Haytham, and Arno all have in common?

Who or what attempts to show you the true versions of Templar-edited events in Assassin’s Creed III Liberation?

In Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which Legendary Ship was hidden by an eerie mantle of fog?

Which organization built the tunnel networks that run beneath New York and Boston in Assassin’s Creed III?
