Get $1 PC games from Ubisoft’s new Uplay client

Get $1 PC games from Ubisoft during Gamescom
Uplay the vague Ubisoft online service is now also Uplay the PC client, through which Ubisoft sells games and offers friends lists and other services. It's worth checking out, because the company is offering a selection of $1 PC game downloads, one a day. Today, it's HAWX 2; tomorrow, From Dust, with Silent Hunter 5 and Driver: San Francisco following.

The same deal applies in the UK and Europe, with prices of one unit of the local currency. There are other deep, if not as dramatic, discounts as well.

Beyond Good & Evil, Outland, From Dust triple pack this September in Europe

August 8th, 2012 No comments
Beyond Good & Evil, From Dust and Outland triple pack gets box artThe Beyond Good & Evil HD, From Dust and Outland retail triple pack of downloadable games will be available September 21 in Europe.

Eurogamer
reports confirmation from Ubisoft that the bundle will be available for Xbox 360, but there's no mention of a PS3 version.

The retail compilation has popped up a couple times during the year, with Ubisoft not commenting until now. On that note, we've reached out to Ubisoft US about the game coming stateside, but haven't heard back.

Ubisoft's BG&E, Outland, From Dust triple pack leaks box art

June 20th, 2012 No comments
Beyond Good & Evil, From Dust and Outland triple pack gets box artThe next triple pack treatment is that much closer to being announced. Amazon UK has leaked some box art for the Ubisoft Xbox Live Hits Collection, which places Beyond Good & Evil HD, From Dust and Outland on one retail disc. It's a bittersweet proposition, since we all remember what happened the last time Ubisoft put Beyond Good & Evil on a disc.

If this all seems familiar, it's probably because just about the same thing happened back in January. The emergence of the box art, visible to the left, lends more credence toward this being a real official thing we can buy on this planet with our human money.

The new anomaly is that the Amazon UK listing, which prices the triple pack at £17.99, only lists it for Xbox 360 - no PS3 version can be found. Even though we expect the boilerplate response from Ubisoft, we've still asked for more information.

From Dust migrating to Google Chrome in April

March 6th, 2012 No comments

Ubisoft will debut From Dust -- the latest joint from Eric Chahi, creator of Out of this World -- on Google Chrome some time in April, the publisher's Facebook page revealed. The Google Chrome version will feature new controls and full HD graphics.

We've contacted Ubisoft for pricing info, and whether or not players will be able to sample the Chrome version for free before buying, just like the Google Chrome port of Bastion. Stay tuned!

Mass Effect 3 DLC ‘From Ashes’ drifts down to Xbox Marketplace

February 21st, 2012 No comments
BioWare has let slip a batch of Mass Effect 3 DLC on the Xbox Marketplace, titled From Ashes. This is presumably the same DLC as the rumored "From Dust" installment, which at least one GameStop customer may now need to get a refund for. Dust and ashes are two very different things, after all, but we bet any name switching came to avoid possible confusion with 2011's From Dust (if it wasn't a GameStop typo to begin with).

From Ashes will cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Mass Effect 2 included the squad member Zaeed as free DLC in new copies, and From Ashes could very well be a new iteration of this format.

For a brief description of the DLC (now with 100 percent more spoilers!) read on:

Mass Effect 3 ‘From Dust’ DLC purchased at GameStop before launch

February 7th, 2012 No comments
Reader Craig sent us this image of his GameStop receipt, where he purchased a code for some Mass Effect 3 DLC ahead of the game's March 6 launch. He reports that he paid $10 for it.

The DLC is called "FromDust" on the receipt -- not to be confused with the game by the same name. We're contacting EA to determine the details of this offer.

Play.com lists ‘Ubisoft Triple Pack,’ containing Beyond Good and Evil HD, Outland, From Dust

January 20th, 2012 No comments
It looks like more downloadable titles will be getting the packaged retail treatment, this time courtesy of Ubisoft. Similar to the various other retail packs we've seen in the past, the "Ubisoft Triple Pack" will contain three previously download-only titles for PS3 and Xbox 360: Beyond Good and Evil HD, Outland and From Dust, according to a listing on Play.com.

Play.com's pre-order price of £14.99 equates to roughly $23, although no listings currently exist for the Triple Pack on any of the usual US retailers' websites. We've contacted Ubisoft for clarification regarding the collection's availability and pricing, but we feel safe in assuming that it'll cost more than $1 and less than $100 million, and that it'll be available in a country somewhere on this specific planet.
