Ubisoft Remakes Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time

The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a legendary action/adventure game that made a big splash back in 2003. There series even served as a precursor to the Assassin’s Creed series. If you missed this classic adventure the first time around, you’ll be able to experience it with fresh eyes early next year.

During Ubisoft’s recent digital press conference, the publisher announced the return to this timeless classic with a remake that refreshes Sands of Time’s visuals while remaining faithful to its action and puzzle-like platforming. While the gameplay remains largely the same, the studio says that the camera, controls, and combat have been refined to match "today’s standards," so hopefully, the camera will be less finicky. Finally, much like the original game, this remake includes the original Prince of Persia PC game that originally released in 1989.

Skull & Bones Won't Be Shown At Ubisoft Forward

Ubisoft Singapore's Skull & Bones is a multiplayer action title where factions of pirates battle amid treacherous seas. The game has already gone through a series of delays and, unfortunately, fans will have to wait even longer. Creative Director Elisabeth Pellen published a letter on the Skull & Bones blog that chronicled the next steps in the development cycle. She affirmed that Skull & Bones won't be shown during the Ubisoft Forward stream.

"Critical questions needed to be addressed over the past several months," Pellen writes. "Such as: how do we modernize the classic pirate fantasy? How do we ensure a more immersive and visceral experience? How do we create cool and memorable moments in-game? For most of these questions to be answered, it was clear that we needed more development time." 

While we're sure that the game has gone through changes since its premier and demo, we enjoyed our time with Skull & Bones back in 2017.

No More Heroes 3 Delayed To 2021

No More Heroes 3, which was unveiled at E3 last year, has been delayed to 2021. The Switch-exclusive title was originally planned for a 2020 release, but developer Grasshopper Manufacture has announced a delay to the anticipated action title due to complications surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

While the delay is unfortunate for those who were hoping to go on another adventure with Travis Touchdown before the end of the year, the good news is that the studio claims to have gotten back to where it needs to be from a development capacity perspective. The decision to delay was made with the prioritization of quality in mind.

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune Trailer Breaks Out Of The Sand

For sci-fi fans, few properties have the pull of Frank Herbert’s Dune. It’s a property that reaches beyond its origins as a novel, and has had significant impact on speculative fiction as it appears in TV, movies, games, comics, and more.

The first book has been adapted for the screen more than once, but Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve has been hard at work bringing his new vision of the story to life, and the new three-minute trailer offers an awesome look at what’s in store.

The film is targeting release in theaters on December 18.

What’s The Difference Between Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S?

What’s The Difference Between Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S?

Microsoft has unloaded a slew of information about its next-gen consoles, and it’s a lot to take in. Of particular importance for gamers trying to budget for the holidays, the long-rumored reveal of the Xbox Series S means that there will be a choice to be made between the two distinct products.

While Microsoft will almost certainly have new details to share as the launch nears, there are a few big differences between the Series X and Series S that can already help you to reach a buying decision.

First, with a $200 price difference (Xbox Series X: $499, Xbox Series S: $299), the Series S is positioned as a far more budget-friendly option that will still allow players to enjoy next-gen games. The Series S is also nearly 60% smaller than its more powerful cousin, making it an easier fit into smaller shelf spaces.
