thecrew-header

Even the PlayStation Store slows down in December as Sony has added eight new titles to their digital storefront.

Leading the way is Ubisoft’s coast-to-coast racer, The Crew (PS4), which is available in both a standard edition and a “Gold Edition.” Also available this week is the first episode of Telltale’s Game of Thrones (PS4) adaptation, Iron From Ice. Both games are joined by Secret Ponchos (PS4), Switchblade Monkeys’ Old West arena shooter (which is free for PlayStation Plus subscribers).

More information about all three of these games (as well as a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Releases: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, The Crew, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMix, More

newreleases120214

Welcome to December, ladies and gentlemen! On the average, December is a month that doesn’t see many new releases, but 2014 appears to be different. Six major releases will be available in stores this week, which is extremely atypical for the the first week of the final month of the year.

We start things off with the delightful and adorable Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii U. Based on the Captain Toad sections found in last year’s Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo may have outdone themselves with their latest attempt to cram a ton of cuteness into a game while keeping the gameplay appropriate for all ages. Yup, I thinkl Toad in an archaeologist costume searching for lost treasure means we’ve finally reached “Maximum Nintendo.”

Next up is Ubisoft’s cross-country racer The Crew. Available for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, Ubisoft held several beta tests to ensure that The Crew’s online modes work like a charm. Also available this week is Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix, a new Kingdom Hearts compilation for the PS3.

Speaking of compilations, Nintendo has smushed together both NES Remix games into a Wii U retail disc known as the NES Remix Pack. It’ll be joined by Ultimate NES Remix, a 3DS edition of the NES-based minigame collection.

Finally this week, Terraria will make the jump to the PS4 and the Xbox One.

The Crew’s release date skids onto December 2

thecrew-header

Ubisoft has announced that The Crew, their open-world racer for the PC, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, will now be released on December 2. Previously scheduled for a November 11 launch, the publisher pushed the game back so they could conduct another closed beta sometime in November. This will be the fourth closed beta for The Crew after two separate tests on the PC and another exclusively for PS4/Xbox One players.

“We received a lot of valuable information from the recent PC and console betas,” Creative Director Julian Gerighty told Ubisoft’s UbiBlog. “We are now scrutinizing all of the player feedback so we can ensure that The Crew delivers the seamless open-world experience that meets everyone’s high expectations.”

According to Gerighty, feedback from the betas has resulted in several substantial changes to the game including “the option to fully remove the HUD so players can enjoy the scenery as they roam freely through a massive re-creation of the United States, to fine-tuning the collisions to be even more realistic and adding in new visual effects.” The Ubisoft Reflections developer has also tweaked police AI and improved the game’s voice chat after the first three rounds of player feedback.

There’s also a good chance that Ubisoft moved The Crew to ensure the game wasn’t overshadowed by the November 11 launch of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue and Assassin’s Creed: Unity, the company’s flagship titles for the Fall.

You could set your watch by the games within Ubisoft’s booth at this year’s PAX Prime convention. Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, a few downloadables. We know the drill. But if you’re interested in Ubisoft’s Fall lineup, and you’re going to be at PAX Prime, you should definitely check them out.

New videos for Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will be on hand. But if you’re looking for something to play, there’s the open-world racing game The Crew, the whimsical strategy of Toy Soldiers: War Chest, and the crazed insanity of Far Cry 4.

And if you’re a Tetris fan, Ubisoft is hold two events on Sunday, August 31 to prepare players for the launch of Tetris Ultimate. “Tetris: The Video Game That Changed the World” will be held at 3:00 PM (Pacific Time) in the Hedgehog Theatre at the Grand Hyatt. Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov will take the stage to talk about the history of Tetris and what’s in store for the first next-generation game in the franchise. And at 5:00 PM, Pajitnov will move over to the Paramount Theatre (911 Pine Street) to meet fans and sign autographs.

More details on all of the games found in Ubisoft’s booth can be found after the break. (more…)

Ubisoft @ E3 14: Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Far Cry 4, The Division, The Crew, more

ubisoftlogo

Ubisoft has announced their E3 2014 plans and it includes a lot of games we already knew about including Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Far Cry 4, Tom Clancy’s The Division, The Crew, and Valiant Hearts: The Great War. The megapublisher plans to announce a few additional titles during E3 Media Briefing, which will be held on Monday, June 9 at 6:00 PM (Eastern Time). Once again, Ubisoft’s presentation will be hosted by actress (and professional awesome person) Aisha Tyler and will be broadcast live on their YouTube Channel.

So what else will Ubisoft be announcing at this year’s E3 Expo? I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Blood Dragon 2 or the oft-rumored Assassin’s Creed: Comet, and you know a Watch Dogs sequel is in development somewhere within Ubisoft’s many development houses, but that probably won’t be an E3 2014 announcement.

You can find more information on Ubisoft’s E3 lineup after the break. (more…)

The Crew will now be released in the Fall, new trailer available

Ubisoft has confirmed that The Crew, their cooperative cross-country driving game, will now be available this Fall. The PC, PS4, and Xbox One game was previously scheduled for a Summer release, but it looks like the publisher wants to spend a little more time on one of their first next-gen titles.

Ubisoft has also announced that players who pre-order The Crew will have the option to choose among two different special editions of the game. The Limited Edition will include 10,000 “Crew Credits” as well as early access to three cars: BMW Z4 sDrive35is, Mini Cooper S, and Dodge Ram SRT-10. And the GameStop-exclusive Muscle Edition will include everything from the Limited Edition as well as access to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT.

If you want to try out The Crew before its Fall release, Ubisoft will have a playable demo of the game available at this weekend’s PAX East convention.
