Ubisoft® Will Make Players Discover Their Wild Side with Far Cry® 4’s New
Experiential Website

“What are you made of?” interactive campaign brings fans into a beautiful yet savage environment, living a completely different experience from one user to another.  

Today, Ubisoft announced the launch of Far Cry® 4What are you made of? digital platform, an experiential website designed to test the player’s reactions in a world full of unpredictability. It offers a cinematic and immersive experience that will give each user a flavour of the wild and menacing world of Far Cry® 4.

Players will have to go through 4 different rites of passage:
-       A deadly face-to-face encounter with « An eye for an eye »
-       An impenetrable mind maze with « Rabbit hole »
-       A hypnotic trance with  « Mind Blossom »
-       A blindfolded sound chase with  « Escape »

Each rite, to be released on a weekly basis, is composed of interactive films in which the user has only a few seconds to make a decision and get out of the extreme situation they is trapped in. Each choice they makes triggers another sequence of events, pushing the user to make another choice and so on and so forth...

In total, the digital platform can create up to 42 million different routes and it would require up to 100 days to explore all these different combinations.

At the end of each rite, the user’s choices are analysed with a specific algorithm that determines their personality and grants them access to exclusive content on Far Cry® 4 via Uplay.

“We are looking forward to seeing the reaction of fans. This interactive campaign really puts the player at the centre of the experience offering a new and more intense approach to the game and its universe”, said Guillaume Carmona, EMEA Marketing Director. “This platform will allow each fan to live a totally different experience. That’s the beauty of a game like Far Cry 4 as players can actually create their own path, just like with this website. Each decision matters and conditions the outcome.”

Just a few more days (5 to be precise, but who's counting) until the release of MX vs. ATV Supercross on 28th October – time to take a look at all the Motocross stars and legends you'll be competing against in the game.

A total of 65 of the world's best riders are revving their engines in the starting blocks and raring to compete. The most popular on the list is shooting star James "Bubba" Stewart, JS7, who has had a meteoric rise since his professional debut in 2002, and is now at the very top of his game. Ken Roczen joins the list as the best rider in decades, having won the 2011 Motocross World Championship and reveling in victory as the youngest world champion to date.

David Knudsen, Licensing Manager at MX vs. ATV developers Rainbow Studios commented: "We're thrilled that so many popular riders are making an appearance in our title. Not only are there all the familiar faces we've known for years, but also the many new and talented riders who are making their first appearance in an MX vs. ATV game."

The large selection of riders is not all that makes MX vs. ATV Supercross stand out from the crowd. 17 tracks await players in a fast-paced Motocross spectacle that offers several championships, local and online multiplayer, and enhanced vehicle physics. Players can supe-up their own set of wheels with various original parts (more info on that will be released soon) and all riders come, of course, clothed in their original outfits and can be customized.

For the first time in the Smash Bros. series, eight players can join the mayhem at once

Nintendo has unleashed a deluge of information about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, launching across Europe on 5th December, including an eight-player mode, special offers for fans who get both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions and a variety of options and surprises exclusive to the Wii U version. Nintendo revealed these and many more details in a live-streamed video announcement named Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: 50 Must-See Things, which is available to watch now on YouTube or via the Nintendo Direct website.

Some of the topics covered in the video include:
  • Eight-Player Mode: In a first for the series, a special mode lets eight players fight simultaneously in local multiplayer. This option appears only in the Wii U version, and lets players compete on special, larger stages to accommodate all the characters.

  • amiibo Figures: Once a player touches an amiibo figure to the NFC touchpoint on the Wii U GamePad, the character joins as a “Figure Player”. The amiibo figures can gain levels to become stronger as they gain experience through battling and are fed equipment by the player. Players can also have amiibo fight each other, and amiibo will bring you presents from the battles they fight in.

  • Online Multiplayer: This time it’s possible to team up locally with a friend to compete “With Anyone” online, amongst other options. In the future, players will be able to set up customised Tourneys and there will also be Official Tourneys. Voice Chat with Friends through the GamePad before and after battle, on the Fighter Selection and Results screens.

  • Custom Stage Creation: The touch screen of the Wii U GamePad makes it easier than ever for players to build their own stages and, after a future update, share them with friends and other players around the world.

  • Controls: The Wii U version features more controller options than any other game in the series, such as the Nintendo GameCube Controller through the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, amongst others. In addition, players who own the Nintendo 3DS version of the game can use their Nintendo 3DS or 2DS systems to control the action on the TV screen in Smash Mode on the Wii U version.

  • Importing Fighters: Fans of the Nintendo 3DS version of the game can immediately benefit from the fruits of their smashing labours. Players can import custom Nintendo 3DS fighters (including Mii Fighters) to the Wii U game, along with their customised equipment, costumes and hats.

  • Special Soundtrack Offer: Everyone who registers both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. on Club Nintendo during the promotional period will receive a two-disc soundtrack of music from the games*.

  • Mewtwo: This veteran fighter will be made available as free downloadable content in Spring 2015 for anyone who registers both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game with Club Nintendo during the promotional period*.

  • Modes: The Wii U version of the game offers many new modes and different ways to play that keep players coming back for more, including:

    • Smash Tour: A fighting party game that looks like a board game. Players use items, spin a wheel and advance around the map. Up to four players can compete at once as they navigate the board and gain fighters and power-ups they can use in a final battle.

    • Special Orders: In Master Orders, the more difficult the order from Master Hand you undertake, the higher your reward – but you only get to try once. In Crazy Orders, you pay to enter and battles get harder the longer you survive. Will you know when to stop and reap your rewards?

    • Special Smash Mode: Players can customise battles and play any way they like.

    • Coin Battles: Players compete to collect coins from other players.

    • Stamina Matches: Players fight until their hit points reach zero.

    • Classic Mode: One or two players fight through a series of battles and advance as long as they survive. Many random events can shake things up, and players can adjust the intensity settings. The more difficult the game, the greater the rewards.

    • All-Star Mode: Unlike in the Nintendo 3DS version, opponents appear in reverse chronological order, and two players can battle through this mode together.

    • Event Mode: One or two players take on set character and theme-based battles. Clearing stages helps players see the way forward. 
  • Masterpieces: This menu gives players a peek into the past lives of some of the Super Smash Bros. characters. Players can play cut-down versions of selected characters’ greatest games.

  • Stages: The Wii U game offers more stages, with more variety, than any game in the series. 

  • There is now an expanded version of the original Battlefield stage named Big Battlefield. 

  • The Great Cave Offensive, based on the underground labyrinth found in Kirby Super Star, challenges players to avoid potentially lethal danger zones – or throw their opponents into them. The Jungle Hijinxs stage, based on Donkey Kong Country Returns, features dual-plane battles with a foreground and background, and blast barrels that shoot players from front to back and vice versa. After launch, a new Miiverse stage will feature players’ posts from Miiverse, where posts will appear in-game to cheer on the fighters.

  • My Music: The game includes hundreds of songs and jingles that players can listen to, as well as settings to customise what music plays during gameplay. Players add songs to their library by collecting CDs that appear while smashing or after completing challenges.

  • Movies: When players clear Classic or All-Star Mode, they’ll be treated to a brief movie featuring whichever fighter they used. Every fighter has a movie, so it’ll be a challenge to view them all. Additionally, HD versions of the new fighter introduction videos are available to watch.

  • Ridley: Fans have been clamouring for Ridley to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game for a while and now they’re getting their wish - but true to form, Ridley appears in an unexpected way. Players will find him in the Metroid series-inspired Pyrosphere stage, but he does more than just hassle players. If one player attacks Ridley enough, Ridley will join that fighter’s side and attack others. Players (including the one on Ridley’s side) can KO Ridley to earn the point for match results. If Ridley consumes the energy to the side of the ledges, he will become Meta Ridley - and all the more vicious!

  • Characters: The Wii U version offers players 40 characters plus Mii Fighters from the start. Each character’s moves match those found in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, so players who hone their skills in the portable game will have an edge over opponents in the console version of the game.
