Ubisoft has set the Watch_Dogs release date for November 19, 2013.

Rayman Legends Release Date Pushed up to August, Then Back to September

Share Button


Ubisoft made a lot of Nintendo fans angry earlier this year when they delayed the release of Rayman Legends. Well, it looks like Rayman Legends will be released a little sooner than expected. Instead of an early September release, Ubisoft will be releasing Rayman Legends on August 27, 2013.

Has the damage been done, or will this win over a few Nintendo fans?

Update: Looks like Ubisoft’s initial statement to Joystiq was incorrect because they have contacted them with the new release date of September 3, 2013. So, we’re getting that early September release after all.


Splinter Cell: Blacklist Fact Sheet

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist

Product Description

The United States has a military presence in two-thirds of countries around the world, and some of them have had enough. A group of terrorists calling themselves The Engineers have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist – a deadly countdown of escalating attacks on U.S. interests. Special operative Sam Fisher is now the leader of the newly formed 4th Echelon: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Together, they must hunt down The Engineers by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.

Splinter Cell Blacklist on Wii U

Splinter Cell Blacklist offers enhanced gameplay options on the Wii U. The Gamepad replicates Sam’s OpSat, allowing the player to operate gadgets such as tri-rotor drones and the sticky cam through touch and motion-based inputs.

The Wii U GamePad controller allows for faster reaction times, letting the player mark enemies, switch weapons, quick reload and choose gadgets to adapt to any situation, among other features.

Key Features

Operate Without Restrictions:

Sam is back in his tactical suit and goggles, and he’s more lethal and agile than ever. Granted the freedom to do whatever it takes to stop the Blacklist, Sam flies from exotic locales to U.S. cities as he races against the clock to find out who’s behind this devastating threat. Thrilling gameplay is enhanced by full performance capture, creating a highly cinematic player experience.

Own Your Play Style:

Splinter Cell Blacklist builds on the stealth roots of the franchise, while exploring new directions to embrace the realms of action and adventure. Players can define their personal play styles and be rewarded for those choices.

  • Ghost players want to remain undetected. They analyze and plan the best way to make it happen. They are the perfect spy.
  • Assault players rely on instincts and frontal blow to deal with a situation. They are about open fire.
  • Panther players look for lethality in the most efficient and silent way. They are all about surgical strike.

Tools of the Trade:

Take down The Engineers by using new gadgets such

as the upgraded Snake Cam and Micro-trirotor Drone. Splinter Cell Blacklist is also bringing back fan-favorites like the Sticky Shocker and the brutal, curved Karambit knife. Fans of stealth will be happy to make the most of Sam’s sneaking abilities to abduct and carry enemies, while Killing In Motion allows the player to strike with surgical precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion.

Build a New Echelon:

Sam is building a whole new Echelon unit; his team, his way. Anna “Grim” Grimsdottir is his technical operations manager, CIA operative Isaac Briggs brings additional firepower, and resident hacker Charlie Cole rounds out the crew.  4th Echelon is a fully mobile ops unit with unlimited resources and cutting-edge technology aboard the repurposed stealth airliner, the Paladin.

Enjoy a Fully Integrated Experience

Sam and his team are aware of terrorist attacks in real time thanks to the Strategic Mission Interface (SMI). The SMI allows 4th Echelon to receive data about mission objectives while on the move.  It also serves as the hub for all game content, including cooperative and adversarial modes. With the SMI, players can take advantage of the universal game economy system that allows players to fully customize and upgrade Sam, his suit, goggles, weapons, the Paladin and much more.
