We've heard rumors about it for a while, but Ubisoft made the porting of ZombiU official July 30 with a bloody reveal trailer.

It's now just called Zombi, by the way, for obvious reasons.

The London-based zombie survival shooter will arrive, digitally only, Aug. 18. It will come to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. That marks a pretty quick turn around between reveal and release, but Ubisoft just probably wants to wash its hands of the whole affair.

Ubisoft created ZombiU as one of the only third-party launch exclusives for the Wii U, when Nintendo released the console in late 2012. As we all know, the console and therefore the game, didn't sell all that well. It was only July 29 when Nintendo announced that the Wii U had sold 10 million units.

In the middle of 2013, Ubisoft came out with zombie-preventative guns blazing about the Wii U's poor performance. First, the giant game developer and publisher canceled a ZombiU sequel, saying the sales didn't make the game "even close" to profitable.

Then, Ubisoft said that it would no longer develop exclusive titles for Nintendo until the Wii U has more users. There's no telling what number it would take to bring back that relationship.

So, if you've waited around, refusing to buy a Wii U but thinking ZombiU looks cool, now's your chance. It received a number of positive reviews and currently sits at 77 on Metacritic.

If only that 'London Bridges' rendition in the trailer wasn't so goofy.

A wild "mod" for Watch Dogs has appeared that allows PC players to achieve close to the visuals we saw at E3 in 2012. Seeing what the game should have looked like really makes it seem like Ubisoft downgraded the PC version, but Ubisoft PR continues to defend their product:



UPDATE: The team behind Watch Dogs has left an official response on the Watch Dogs blog:

Watch Dogs PC Update The dev team is completely dedicated to getting the most out of each platform, so the notion that we would actively downgrade quality is contrary to everything we've set out to achieve. We test and optimize our games for each platform on which they're released, striving for the best possible quality. The PC version does indeed contain some old, unused render settings that were deactivated for a variety of reasons, including possible impacts on visual fidelity, stability, performance and overall gameplay quality. Modders are usually creative and passionate players, and while we appreciate their enthusiasm, the mod in question (which uses those old settings) subjectively enhances the game's visual fidelity in certain situations but also can have various negative impacts. Those could range from performance issues, to difficulty in reading the environment in order to appreciate the gameplay, to potentially making the game less enjoyable or even unstable.

Thanks for playing Watch Dogs and stay safe on the mean streets of Chicago.

Sorry siegers, looks like you'll have to wait a little longer to get your Tom Clancy going.

Ubisoft announced Aug. 18 that the much-anticipated tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege won't be released on the originally announced Oct. 13 release date.

Instead, the game will ship Dec. 1.

Eurogamer has the statement from Ubisoft:

"This wasn't an easy decision, but based on the feedback we've received, and based on our own internal tests, we felt there are adjustments and improvements we can make, including improving the co-op experience across all game modes, weapon and gadget balancing, as well as menu and interface navigation," Ubisoft said.

"We're taking a little more time to make these changes, and we think it's the right call."

Meanwhile, the closed beta will still start on 24th September 2015 as planned. "The additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking," Ubisoft said. "That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch."



Here's some great footage of the game from this year's E3:

All the Highlights From Ubisoft's High-Energy E3 Conference

Ubisoft's conference was like a doubleshot of espresso to get you through the afternoon. Featuring Aisha Tyler as host, the conference was filled with action packed sword combat, virus-infected hellscapes, cats riding firebreathing unicorns, Jason Derulo, and a whole lot of Tom Clancy. Seriously.
