Square Enix have announced a brand new IP ahead of this week’s Gamescom event. The game is developed by Dontnod who are the developers behind Remember Me. The publisher promises that the game will be like nothing you’ve played before and will be released as digital episodic content. However, as a blow to Wii U owners the publisher stated that it’s for everything minus Wii U. The game will come to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
But what if we now announced an entirely new IP in the official Square Enix family? What if this title was wholly different to anything we have ever attempted before, both in gameplay and narrative? What if this title was released digitally as regular episodic content, with each new chapter building and evolving based on the choices you made in previous episodes? What if we now gave all of this a name: Life is Strange?
Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue, an exciting new installment in the franchise currently in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, will be available worldwide on November 11.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios. Set in the middle of the 18th century during the Seven Years War, Assassin’s Creed Rogue gives players new locations across North America to explore, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York. In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, players experience the Assassin’s Creed universe through the eyes of a Templar.

The acclaimed naval components from previous Assassin’s Creed games have been enhanced in Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game also gives players new weapons to use on both land and sea in pursuit of taking down the Assassins, including a new ship called the Morrigan.
“We know that there are many Assassin’s Creed fans with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles who want to get their hands on a new Assassin’s Creed game this year,” says Martin Capel, game director, Ubisoft Sofia. “Assassin’s Creed Rogue completes the North American saga started with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and gives previous generation console owners an exclusive opportunity to experience fan-requested features, such as playing as a Templar.”
US video game retailer GameStop have teased on Facebook that they have a big announcement to share with everyone tomorrow. They showed the image which is posted above which looks like a protagonist from the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Most people assume it will be Assassin’s Creed Comet which is rumoured to be in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. While PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will get the gorgeous Assassin’s Creed Unity. When the news was originally reported there was no confirmation of a Wii U version. We shall have to wait and see tomorrow.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Update: Turns out the rumours and guesses were wrong. The big news is that GameStop will have an exclusive Red Hood story pack for Batman Arkham Knight which is on PS4, Xbox One, and PC
The developers behind the acclaimed S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Light will be setting up a Kickstarter campaign to get funding for their next project which is called Areal. The goal is to raise $30,000, though this will probably change. The platforms that game will be coming to are as follows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Mac, Windows and Linux. Here’s a description regarding what to expect for Areal.
Areal is a new video game that’s being developed by the people behind S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Light. It features a massive and intricately detailed open world environment that is extremely varied and colorful, even though it’s set in a post-apocalyptic setting. Areal depicts a future where civilization has fallen apart due to an unearthly material called Metamorphite, which eventually spreads, corrupts and infects the whole world. The source of Metamorphite comes from a meteor that impacted the earth long ago, and it is the site of constant conflict and bloodshed.
E3 Insider has apparently outed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is coming to Wii U. According to the official E3 website, a Wii U rendition of the upcoming first-person shooter will launch on November 4th, alongside the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was officially revealed last month.
Game Informer is reporting that the next Call of Duty titled Advanced Warfare won’t be developed by Sledgehammer games on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. It’s thought that these versions will be developed by High Moon Studios. A Wii U version has yet to be announced, but the logo for Wii U was spotted in the official Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare website.
“PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners don’t have to worry about Activision forgetting them, as Advanced Warfare will be brought to the last generation of consoles as well.”
“Sledgehammer will not be handling the development, however. Activision has yet to announce the studio behind these versions of the game.”
The Pinball Arcade developer FarSight Studios has apologized for the comments it made yesterday on Wii U. Via Facebook, the studio said it was “misinformed” when it claimed Nintendo’s latest console was significantly less powerful than the aging PlayStation 3. The studio added that its initial comments were based on a talk it had with the developer handling the Wii U version of the pinball game.
“Those comments were made based on a conversation I had with the developer who’s been working on the WII-U version, he was unable to get the console to perform anywhere near what the xbox one and ps4 were capable of,” the developer said. “I was misinformed in that I said the ps3 was far more powerful… after speaking to him again, I was told that while the system still does not compare to XB1 or PS4, I was incorrect in regards to the ps3 comparison, and for that I apologize.”
