April’s Games with Gold Includes the Original Battlefront 2, Technomancer, and More

With a new month comes a new rotation of free games for active Xbox Live subscribers. Microsoft recently revealed their lineup for April’s Games with Gold, featuring a collection of free Xbox One titles and backward compatible extras that some players might want to pick up, available via Xbox Live Gold for a limited time only.

Most of this month’s collection seems to carry an extraterrestrial theme, as these games revolve around space-faring adventurers, featuring an old favorite from Microsoft’s debut system. For Xbox One owners, April’s highlights kick off tomorrow with Focus Home Interactive’s 2016 title
The Technomancer, where you play as an on-the-run vagabond mage-warrior, feared and respected by all on Mars. It will be free to download from April 1 to April 30.

On April 16, Bigben Interactive’s
Outcast: Second Contact will be available for free up until May 15. This game is a complete remake of the cult classic original Outcast from 1999 on PC, developed once again by Belgian studio Appeal. This will replace Electronic Arts’ Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 from the March Games with Gold rotation.

For Xbox 360 owners, as well as Xbox One via backward compatibility,
Star Wars: Battlefront II (no, not EA’s) from the original Xbox is free to own for Xbox Live Gold members starting tomorrow. The game, developed by the since-EA-shuttered Pandemic Games, comes with improved graphics via Xbox One X enhancements. This will be followed by Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, available until April 31.

The Division 2 is a 92 GB Download on PS4

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is set to launch on March 15th, but depending on your platform of choice and internet speed, it might be a while before you actually get to enjoy it. Whether you buy the game physically or digitally, you’ll be required to download the initial Title Updates on day one before you can start playing.

Ubisoft has just revealed the install size data for various platforms, and it’s pretty shocking. On PC and Xbox One you’ll need around 48-52 GB of space, which is fairly standard these days. However, if you buy the PlayStation 4 version of the game (digitally or physically) you’ll need between 88 and 92 GB of space for the download and installation process. It’s not clear why there’s such a massive difference between Sony’s console and the other platforms.

The Division 2 Skips Steam, Heading to the Epic Games Store

Last month, Epic Games announced that they’re launching their own digital storefront, competing with the likes of Steam. The Epic Games Store offers developers a greater revenue share than other platforms, and it’s certain to be a less cluttered shop than Steam. This makes it an attractive place for indie developers, but AAA teams are getting in on it as well. Epic just got their biggest win yet with some strong support from Ubisoft.

Ubisoft has just announced that The Division 2 will be coming to the Epic Games Store (along with Ubisoft’s own digital store), but it won’t be coming to Steam. This seems to have been a recent decision, as the game once had a product page on Steam. Ubisoft also indicated that they’ll be bringing more games to the Epic Games Store in the future, and we’ll hear more about them later in the year.

Ubisoft Might Be Making Another Nintendo Crossover Game

Just a few years ago, no one would have believed you if you told them that Nintendo and Ubisoft would team up on a tactical RPGs starring gun-wielding Mario characters alongside the Rabbids… but here we are. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was a surprise smash hit, achieving critical acclaim and selling over 2 million copies. And there just might be a follow-up in the works.

Earlier this week, Ubisoft sent out a survey to fans, but rather than just focusing on Ubisoft properties, the survey focused on Nintendo. Ubisoft asked fans to rate how they felt about various Nintendo characters, including Daisy, the Koopalings, Bowser Jr., Birdo, Kamek, Bowser, Luigi, Rosalina, Peach, Waluigi, Mario, Yoshi, and Wario.

That was enough to spark speculation that Ubisoft could be considering a sequel to Kingdom Battle or an all-new crossover. Things got a little more interesting today when Ubisoft Milan, one of the studios that handled development on Kingdom Battle, put out hiring ads for numerous positions. There are eight listings in all, and three of them specifically mention that they are for a “prestigious AAA title.”

After the success of Kingdom Battle, it would make a lot of sense for Nintendo and Ubisoft to partner up again. Would you like to see a sequel or something completely new?

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is Streaming on Switch in Japan

Nintendo Switch has enjoyed significantly stronger third-party support than Wii U, but there are still some titles that the hybrid console just can’t run under normal circumstances. This has led some developers to experiment with cloud-based versions of games in Japan, allowing Switch owners access to games that need a little extra power.
Resident Evil VII began streaming on Switch in Japan
back in May, and soon another AAA game will be joining it.

Japan got a slightly different version of the recent Nintendo Direct that included some exclusive announcements. Among them was the revelation that Ubisoft is bringing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Cloud Version to Switch on October 5th. Instead of buying the game outright, players pay to stream it for a set amount of time. The pricing model is fairly aggressive, at ¥730 (around $6.50) per day, or ¥8,400 (around $75) to have it for two years. At this time there are no plans for it to be made available outside of Japan.

We may not be getting a new Star Fox game anytime soon, but Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas is the next best thing. The space shooter features playable characters from the Star Fox universe, including Fox McCloud himself. But what good is a hero without a villain?

Fox McCloud Blasts His Way Through New Starlink Footage

During this year’s E3 we were all caught off guard by the surprise announcement that Fox McCloud of Star Fox fame is coming to Starlink: Battle for Atlas. It seems Nintendo has warmed up to Ubisoft thanks to the success of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Nintendo’s favorite pilot was a perfect fit for their upcoming space adventure.

So how does Fox fare in a non-Nintendo world? GameSpot and GameXplain both got a chance to check the game out recently, and they’ve uploaded the opening cutscene (featuring Fox, Peppy, Falco, and Slippy) as well as 14 minutes of Fox McCloud gameplay. There’s a battle in outer space as well as a planet-based mission in a desert area. The gameplay looks like it shouldn’t be too tough of a transition for
Star Fox fans. You can judge for yourself by clicking below!

South Park: The Stick of Truth is Headed to Switch eShop

Nintendo Switch has seen an increase in third-party support in recent months thanks to the console’s stellar first year sales numbers. Ubisoft has previously published several of their titles on Switch, including South Park: The Fractured But Whole. It seems the latest South Park adventure was a hit on Switch, as Ubisoft has just announced plans to bring the first game in the series to Switch as well.

South Park: The Stick of Truth was well received back in 2014, but Ubisoft initially opted not to bring it to Switch, focusing instead on its sequel. That’s changing soon, as Ubisoft has included Stick of Truth for Switch in its most recent game release schedule. The schedule covers the period from July 1st – September 30th, which means Stick of Truth is coming to Switch sometime in the next month and a half.

If you were hoping to secure a physical copy at retail, we’ve got a little bad news on that front. Unfortunately, the game is listed in Ubisoft’s “Digital Only” section of their release schedule, so it looks like it will be an eShop exclusive. Sorry, collectors.

Check Out the Opening Cinematic for Mario + Rabbids’ Kong DLC

Last year Nintendo and Ubisoft teamed up to launch a turn based, tactical RPG starring Mario and the Rabbids. This bizarre combination somehow works wonderfully, and the game was a huge hit. As a follow-up, Ubisoft’s releasing a huge, content-packed expansion starring Donkey Kong. The expansion launches tomorrow, but you can watch the opening cinematic right now!

A mishap with the washing machine has transported BEEP-0 and Rabbid Peach to another dimension. Don’t you hate it when that happens? Thankfully, they’ll be teaming up with the Donkey Kong and Rabbid Cranky to fight their way through the locals, rebuild their broken washing machine / inter-dimensional portal, and head home. The whole adventure is said to take around ten hours, so it’s a pretty hefty update. Will you be joining DK on the latest Rabbids adventure?

Here’s a Boat Load of New Information for Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones

At E3 last year, Ubisoft showed off a new pirate-themed game called Skull & Bones. Taking obvious and heavy inspiration from the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s lauded ship-based missions, this was one of the more intriguing new games last year and was in need of more explanation. Thankfully Ubisoft came prepared this year.

The biggest question about Skull and Bones last year was “what can you and your crew do?” Well, you’ll be able to customize your ship and choose the proper one for your crew, the job you’re doing, and the equipment that you have. You can disguise your ship to sneak past enemy forts and, of course, engage in ship-to-ship combat. Different ships even have different unique abilities, as well as the ability to deal critical hits. Once you sidle up to an enemy ship, you can board it to steal loot, which looks to be randomized, as the example in the gameplay footage referred to it as a “Legendary Chest.”

Skull & Bones holds a world that will always be evolving and reacting to what the player does. You’ll even be able to invite other captains to help take down powerful ships.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Features Gender Choice, Dialogue Options, and More

Ubisoft is continuing to change the Assassin’s Creed franchise with each new installment. This time, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey lets the player choose between a male or female character and also adds dialogue choices. The developers stated they wanted to change the way stories are told in the game, and these new options seem to be a big way they intend to do so. It’s unclear as of now how much of an impact these choices will have on the story.

However, the core gameplay of Assassin’s Creed is still there. The combat system from Origins returns, and there remains still a fair amount of walking behind NPCs while they give you exposition. But there are also plenty of awesome new things in the Greek setting. You will take control of a Spartan outcast-turned-mercenary during the Pelo War, which is set in 400s BC, which should serve to provide plenty of amazing historical moments for the developers to take players through.

You can check out the new trailer and gameplay footage below!

Fox McCloud is Coming to Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Ubisoft dropped a massive bomb at E3 this year about its new title, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. A familiar face will be coming to the Switch version of the game, and it’s none other than Star Fox‘s hero, Fox McCloud.

In Starlink: Battle for Atlas, players can create their own starships that aren’t too dissimilar to Star Fox‘s Arwings. Unlike in Star Fox, Starlink incorporates an optional toys-to-life feature. To show it off, the developers brought Shigeru Miyamoto onstage to give him the prototype of the upcoming Arwing-like toy that can be brought to life in-game.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be launching October 16 for Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Fox McCloud and his Arwing will, naturally, be Switch exclusive.
