The boss of Ubisoft imagines a future of video games like Netflix
Recently Ubisoft signed a historic agreement with Microsoft. This partnership – if validated by the CMA – grants the rights to Activision Blizzard King games via cloud gaming to the French company for 15 years. And Yves Guillemot draws a daring parallel with Netflix and its “100% streaming” strategy which caused its share price to fall upon the announcement before becoming the player we know today in the streaming and SVOD market. Ubisoft is therefore banking on Cloud Gaming now, like Netflix in video several years ago, in order to be a pioneer in this field and hit the jackpot by the advent of video game streaming. This is definitely Ubisoft’s plan.
When Netflix announced plans to get into streaming, its shares fell sharply and it was widely criticized. Today we see what has become of her. The same will be true for video games, but it will take time. But when they take off, it will be very quickly.
Huge leak for the new episode of this FPS video game series
It is through our colleagues atInsider Gaming that we learned of the existence of the next episode of the Far Cry saga as well as several details concerning the story of this new opus. Indeed, Far Cry 7 is currently in development, which is not surprising as the saga is one of the most important in the French publisher’s catalog. Supposed to release by fall 2024, Code-named Project Blackbird would offer a non-linear story during which the protagonist must save several members of his family who may perish during the operation. Their deaths would then influence the course of history. Finally, this shooter would introduce a new gameplay mechanic in order to interrogate enemies. It remains to be seen whether they lied or, on the contrary, told the truth.
Barely released, this title already benefits from a reduction
This was one of the most anticipated summer releases (aside from Baldur’s Gate 3 of course). At the crossroads of the Borderlands and Dark Souls sagas, Remnant 2 – the sequel to Remnant: From the Ashes – has generally managed to convince players, even if the TPS developed by the Gunfire Games studios was not unanimous. in the ranks of critics. Crowned with an 80% on PC and PS5 and even an 85% on Xbox Series X/S, it is currently being sold off on the online store of Sony’s home console. Remnant II – Ultimate Edition is sold for 55.99 euros instead of 69.99 euros (i.e. 20% reduction). This offer is only valid for a limited time. It will end on October 12, 2023 at 00:59 (UTC+2). The Ultimate Edition of Remnant II contains the base game as well as the DLC pack, a survival pack, the Sage armor, the Radiant armor and finally the Void armor.
WoW’s tenth expansion leaked? The clues pile up
The future expansion of World of Warcraft is still very discreet while waiting for Blizzcon which will be held on November 3 and 4, 2023. However, fans looking for information generally rely on dataminers to unearth the rare gem. According to a recent leak linked to certain “Achievements”, a player has developed an entire theory taking as a starting point a hypothetical mount called Algarian Stormrider. This theory which you can find on wowhead.com develops around the terms Algarian and Stormrider in order to determine the content of the next expansion based on the links made with DragonFlight.
The Nintendo Switch 2 could welcome the new episode of this cult franchise
The Nintendo Switch currently only exists as rumors, but things seem to be becoming clearer around the Japanese manufacturer’s future console. Released in March 2017, Nintendo’s hybrid machine which has sold 129.5 million units worldwide (figures from September 2023) is now lagging behind the competition (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series) technologically. X/S), even if it is positioned in a very different segment from Microsoft and Sony consoles. The Nintendo Switch is destined to disappear within a few years and some third-party publishers are already banking on a hypothetical Nintendo Switch 2 like Capcom. The Japanese publisher would develop Monster Hunter 6 for this console. As a reminder, Monster Hunter World (PC, PS4, Xbox One) and Monster Hunter Rise (Nintendo Switch) were released in 2018 and 2021 respectively.
This Pro Player Won So Much He Was Exempted From Mandatory Military Service
Military service is no longer compulsory in France since July 1, 1999 with the adoption of a law by the Assembly of the Republic putting an end to the conscript system. However, not all countries have ended military service. In South Korea, all men between the ages of 18 and 30 cannot cut it unless… if they are athletes, musicians or dancers who participate in South Korea’s international influence by winning prizes or winning competitions. In this Asian country, esports is a real institution and players are rightly considered athletes. Among them, Lee “Faker” Sang-Hyeok (League of Legends pro) is a legend who was exempt from military service after his teammates’ victory in the final against Taiwan during a tournament organized by Asian Games.
