Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon hits 500K in sales

June 27th, 2013 No comments
Ubisoft's standalone and neon-loving throwback, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, has surpassed 500,000 total units sold on XBLA, PSN and PC, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told GamesIndustry International. While Guillemot neglected to break down how Blood Dragon's sales were spread by platform, he did specifically call out boosted Far Cry 3 sales on PC as a result of Blood Dragon's favorable reception.

Blood Dragon's critical and commercial success as a companion product is something that Ubisoft will investigate, Guillemot said, so it's possible that Ubisoft may try and use this formula again in the future. Watch Dogs: Pound Puppies, yes?

Might and Magic Clash of Heroes lays seige upon Android

Clash of Heroes, Capybara's excellent match-three adaptation of Might and Magic strategy, is available now on Android. After coming out on DS in 2009 and moving onto consoles and PC in 2011, Clash of Heroes marched onto iOS earlier this year.

It's taken a little while, but Clash of Heroes continued its journey onto Android, and like the iOS version is priced at $4.99. However, unlike on iOS, the Android version doesn't feature online battling, although local multiplayer is supported.

Far Cry 3′s creative director to unveil Child of Light at GDC Europe

Far Cry 3's creative director to unveil Child of Light at GDC Europe
Far Cry 3 creative director Patrick Plourde will unveil his current project, Child of Light, during an upcoming session at Game Developers Conference Europe in August.

During his talk, Plourde will discuss "the unique challenges and opportunities of producing a small title within the walls of Ubisoft Montreal." Contrasting Plourde's previous work with the Rainbow Six and Assassin's Creed franchises, Child of Light is a smaller-budget game with an "intimate scope," designed with an indie mentality and produced with Ubisoft's support.

Details regarding Child of Light's target platforms have not been revealed, and a release date is not yet known.

Assassin’s Creed 4 listing points to first mate DLC in season pass

June 21st, 2013 No comments
Best Buy details a season pass for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag highlighting pirate protagonist Edward Kenway's first mate, Adewale, as a playable character. The Best Buy listing says this content will take players "even deeper into the real explosive events of the Golden Age of Pirates."

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag's season pass will cost $20, Best Buy says, and will include both single-player and multiplayer content. The cost for these packs piecemeal is $40 according to the listing.

Season passes are hardly new to the Assassin's Creed franchise. In Assassin's Creed 3, season pass content revolved around an alternate story focusing on a tyrannical King George Washington. Ubisoft has previously stated PlayStation platforms will have exclusive content highlighting the story of the Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation heroine, Aveline.
