Just Dance 2014 releases October 8 with free Katy Perry DLC

Just Dance 2014 will feature well over 45 chart-topping songs, some of which aren't even Nicki Minaj. Ubisoft does want to toss in one more track that didn't quite make the cut, so you'll be able to download Katy Perry's latest single "Roar" on the game's October 8 launch day for free.

Assassin's Creed Pirates coming to mobile this fall

It's a pirate's life for Ubisoft. The company announced Assassin's Creed Pirates today, another swashbuckling title to tie into the launch of Assassin's Creed 4. But this one is more strategic, built for mobile devices, and stars an entirely new pirate. It's due out this fall.

Just Dance 2014 tracklist is 20% Nicki Minaj so far

Just Dance 2014 tracklist is 20% Nicki Minaj so far

Look, I've written for Shacknews for four years so I'm familiar with the demographic. I know that you, dear reader, are probably not hugely excited about Ubisoft annualising the Just Dance series, even if Just Dance 2014's announcement today does confirm another next-gen launch title. But, get this: of the ten songs revealed so far for Just Dance 2014, a whopping 20% are by Nicki Minaj. Oh, now you're interested!

Watch Dogs E3 trailer is jolly nice CGI

Watch Dogs E3 trailer is jolly nice CGI

No, CGI trailers don't represent gameplay. Yes, they are fluffy marketing to get you unduly excited. But by gum, the cinematic E3 trailer for Ubisoft's open-world cyber-vigilante 'em up Watch Dogs is awfully pretty, if a bit eerie. We can still enjoy it as an attractive and well-made video for our enjoyment which by pure chance is somehow connected to a video game. Call it tone-setting and world-building, if you must.

Watch Dogs also confirmed for Wii U

Watch Dogs also confirmed for Wii U

Ubisoft had hinted at a Wii U edition of open-world hack 'em up Watch Dogs before, but only formally confirmed it last night alongside the announcement of a PlayStation 4 version. No, obviously it didn't drop this news during Sony's big shindig, but in a press release afterwards.

Rabbids Land preview: What Wii U is all about

Rabbids Land preview: What Wii U is all about

Consider this thought for a moment: Couch co-op is not really a priority on the Xbox and the PlayStation. Oh, Microsoft has been pushing Dance Central, and Rock Band was a thing a few years back, but those are relatively isolated cases. Nintendo, however, values its relative monopoly on living room multiplayer, and their priorities are more evident than ever on the Wii U.

Just look at the system's controller--ostensibly the system's main selling point. Though it has plenty of other functions, the point of the Wii U's touchscreen is to introduce a new dynamic to party games and the like, which thrive on local multiplayer. Nintendo's bread and butter continues to be kids and families, and with their new controller, they appear to be hoping their unique brand of multiplayer will differentiate themselves from the Kinects and the iPads that have invaded living rooms around the world. All of which adds an interesting dynamic to Rabbids Land--the latest in Ubisoft's vulgar (but amusing) party series.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier review

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier review

When there's an international incident afoot, it's nice to have a team handy that can clean it up with discretion. The crack squad of operatives to whom such tasks fall and their missions have defined Ghost Recon games. After numerous delays the latest installment, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, is finally ready to deploy. It upholds the tradition well with strong catch-the-enemy-off-guard stealth mechanics, fun tech to play with, and a solid set of new features.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier trailer augments reality

Nearly four minutes of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier sneaking fun are on show in a new trailer. In this questionable vision of the near-future, you'll see how handy a stealth suit is, uses of mini-drones, augmented reality, and some jolly nice weapon customisation.
