Prince of Persia announcement teased by Ubisoft engineer

Prince of Persia announcement teased by Ubisoft engineer

Another Prince of Persia game may be on the way. A Ubisoft engineer teased an image pointing to an impending announcement for the next iteration of the long-dormant franchise. But given the speed with which the image (and his entire account) disappeared, it seems likely he jumped the gun.

Watch Dogs multiplayer preview: shooting up Chicago

Watch Dogs multiplayer preview: shooting up Chicago

In spite of its heavy emphasis on hacking, Watch Dogs can sometimes feel a bit too much like Grand Theft Auto. "Just like a Rockstar thug, Aiden can just as easily hop into any car on the street, race around, buy weapons at a dealer, run over pedestrians, and call attention to the police," I wrote in my last preview.

At a recent preview event in San Francisco, I got to try out nearly four hours of the game, including a good deal of multiplayer. Like the campaign, Ubisoft's game shines when it's doing its own thing, rather than trying to go toe-to-toe against Rockstar's heavy-hitting franchise.

Trials Fusion review: ride along

Trials Fusion review: ride along

The Trials games have to find the perfect amount of frustration to entice gamers. Levels need to be challenging enough to have gamers say "just one more time," without having them burst a blood vessel. When you finally nail a level, it's incredibly liberating, whetting your appetite for more.

Developer RedLynx captured that sensation with both Trials HD and Trials Evolution. With Trials Fusion, they're able to maintain the status quo. While the game adds a few new features, the latest entry in the series is still all about staying on your wheels and finishing the race.

Trials Frontier review: training wheels

Trials Frontier review: training wheels

Trials is a series that's built on completing short courses of about a minute each, so it makes sense that Ubisoft and RedLynx would bring their motorcycle-driven series to mobile devices. Trials Frontier makes a valiant effort to reach the heights of its console big brothers, even in the face of familiar (and unwelcome) free-to-play elements. Though Frontier may not quite have the same addictive pull as its predecessors, it's a very solid racing game on its own and one that transitions well to mobile platforms.

Frontier immediately stands out from previous Trials games by introducing a story. A western-themed town is being terrorized by a notorious biker and it's up to the player to track him down and beat him in a one-on-one race. This element allows the game to add in various characters to offer missions and goals for certain trial runs.

Watch Dogs video shows off PC version running Nvidia tech

Which version of Watch Dogs will look the best? Assuming you have the right hardware, it should be PC. A new video from Ubisoft shows off the PC version in action, and it highlights some of the exclusive features coming to Nvidia cards.

For example, the PC version will use Nvidia's HBAO Plus (Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion), which will make for more realistic shadows. Nvidia's TXAA anti-aliasing will also be utilized.
