Your guess is as good as ours.

Around 9 a.m. PST, Ubisoft tweeted out this perplexing tweet with a link to a live stream.



What started as just a shot on the one lone hunter has very slowly zoomed out to reveal the surrounding art behind it. Accompanied by the sounds of a crackling fire, ambient music, a stern-voiced man and a frightened-sounding woman, five hours later, it looks like this:



There's very little information beyond this to ascertain just what Ubisoft is teasing and when they will tell us already. Many outlets are speculating some sort of prehistoric Assassin's Creed.

These dudes with some hoods might verify that guess:



But Ubisoft is a big studio with a lot of other intellectual properties and plenty of capital to create a new one. It could be some throw back Far Cry game or something totally unannounced.

Personally, it reminds me of the game WiLD. It's an open world in a pastoral, pre-civilization setting. And it was created by Ubisoft veteran Michel Ansel, who made Rayman. Even though it's purportedly not connected to Ubisoft, I still think it's worth mentioning.



11,000 people are currently streaming the mysterious cave painting and who knows what they think of it.

On the live stream's YouTube site, it merely says "Ubisoft Announcement – COMING SOON". Which is actually more information than the video or the tweet gave.

Surely, we'll find out soon.

Ever since Telltale Games announced they would be making a single player adventure game out of Minecraft, we've wondered just exactly what that would look like.

Well, they gave a little peek at that Oct. 1 with the first trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode.

It doesn't give a whole lot of information, but given what we know about Telltale games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, we can pretty much extrapolate from there how it would play.

Big things are coming for Oculus Rift.

Epic Games, notable for creation of the Unreal Engine, the Gears of War franchise and more, unveiled their first outing into virtual reality during the keynote of Oculus' second virtual reality conference, Oculus Connect 2.

The first person shooter, which seems to take advantage of a great number of weapons and scenarios, looks kind of incredible. The immersive experience features bullet time and a great deal of enemies.

The Oculus Rift will launch in the first quarter of next year. Oculus has not set a solid date or price on virtual reality device yet.

It wasn't the only news to come out of the keynote. Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey announced that Minecraft is coming to the Oculus Rift next year.

The world may finally figure out why those birds are just so angry all the time.

A teaser trailer for The Angry Birds Movie was released today, and a star-studded cast will voice the birds and pigs you've come to know on the front of your smartphone screen.

The cast includes: Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Bill Hader and Peter Dinklage.

Let's hope they hit this one out of the park.

The Angry Birds Movie will come to theaters May 2016.

We've known for a bit that iconic singer Mariah Carey would be the new spokeswoman for free-to-play mobile game Game of War: Fire Age.

Well, TMZ got ahold of the commercial and now you can see medieval warriors call in help via smartphone, hear about a 'hero coming along' a few times and try to catch a few seconds of Mariah wielding a flaming crossbow.

Oof.



Of course, the multi-platinum singer is taking over for Kate Upton. You know you know her. Here's another look at her 2015 Super Bowl commercial if you need/would like a reminder.





We're not sure if this game is any good. All the b00bs they throw at us hasn't left us wanting to actually try it. Someone must be, we can't imagine these ladies consider their time to be cheap.

Have you played this celebrity-led, silly-looking game?

You'd think Bethesda would have plenty to do in the final weeks before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release, but the good guys and gals who are preparing the post-apocalyptic RPG also want to teach you about the game's systems.

This first video explores the Strength trait, or the S in S.P.E.C.I.A.L.. 

Enjoy!
