Developed in collaboration with the Psychometrics Centre of the University of Cambridge and based on scientific research,
Predictive World processes users’ data to generate accurate predictions of them and their behaviours. 

Today, Ubisoft® revealed Predictive World, an online experience that reveals what a powerful, all-seeing algorithm can predict about an individual based on their online footprint, public information and Facebook ‘Likes’.

A World of Data
Every day, we create 2.5 billion gigs of data, from our last purchase online to our likes on social media platforms. Nowadays, most recruiters scrutinise our social networks before even looking at our CV. When we apply for a loan to our bank, its acceptance is assessed depending on our private health data. And in some US cities, the police can apprehend individuals based on algorithms that can predict their criminal potential thanks to data such as age, ethnicity, gender and social background.

The dangers of Big Data and predictive algorithms are themes at the heart of the narrative of Ubisoft’s upcoming open world action-adventure game WATCH_DOGS 2. The hero, Marcus Holloway, is wrongly profiled as a potential criminal by a city-wide operating system collecting & analysing data on every citizen.

When Fiction meets Reality
Predictive World and WATCH_DOGS 2 are strong reminders that in today’s ultra-connected world, the systematic collection and processing of private data on a massive scale marks a new step in an era of rising surveillance and might represent a threat to personal freedom. Similarly to what happens in WATCH_DOGS 2, Predictive World lets users imagine how corporations, governments, or criminals could use their personal data against them, and help players understand the context of the game.

Predictive World has been built based on an algorithm developed by the Psychometrics Centre of the University of Cambridge, using a wide range of verified data sources such as psychological and social media data from over 6 million research participants, and a bespoke infrastructure designed for this project containing 6.4 billion data points. Collecting and processing users’ digital footprint and combining predictions with large amounts of open data, the system is able to make more than 60 predictions about the individual, from personality traits and intelligence to life expectancy and even financial risk propensity.

An interactive innovative experience
This dynamic and adaptable experience makes tangible the relationship between gender and salary, between city location and risk of being a victim of homicide. More importantly, users can interact with the predictions, change outcomes and understand the relationship between the different variables. By providing unexpected insights across many areas of life, Predictive World gives a glimpse of the power of data and how anyone having access to it can build accurate profiles of individuals.

To go even further, VICE released “User Profiled”, a series of documentary videos sponsored by Ubisoft with the purpose of educating and giving an in-depth look at the dangers of Big Data in today’s society. EPISODE #1 EPISODE #2

To try Predictive World and see what your digital footprints reveal about you, visit: .

WATCH_DOGS 2 will be available worldwide on consoles November 15th 2016 and on Windows PC November 29th 2016. For more information about WATCH_DOGS 2, please visit

Good afternoon – something very different, yet very cool to round out your Friday afternoon.

What do you get when you mix the epic adventure of Dishonored 2 with the beats of five famous Dutch DJs? The answer is music that jumps from the shadows and attacks the senses.

Digital Punk, BLOQSHOT, Jordy Dazz, Vato Gonzalez and Zany, in collaboration with Bethesda Benelux, have produced remixes of music from the upcoming videogame, Dishonored 2, and the results are five impressive tracks from the EDM soundscape.

• Digital Punk (Rene de Bruijn) gives the Official Dishonored 2 OST Remix his raw interpretation of the Dishonored universe. “I grew up with 2 things in life. Gaming and music. When I was asked for a remix of Dishonored 2 by Bethesda I couldn't be happier! Super proud of the result!”.

• DJ Zany (Raoul van Grinsven) made an energetic freestyle track of the song Darkness. “This campaign combines the two things I love most: music and games”, said DJ Zany when commenting on the collaboration.

• Vato Gonzalez (Bj√∂rn Franken) gave Dishonored 2 – Main Theme his characteristic dirty house makeover. “The only thing more satisfying than throwing unsuspecting NPC’s into a wall of light, was to remix the score of Dishonored 2 and throw my audience into a wall of sound.”. 

• Upcoming trap DJ, BLOQSHOT (Arjan Terpstra), gave his own twist to the classic score of the game. “As a fulltime nerd I love both the game and its soundtrack. This was a great opportunity to bring different styles and genres together!” 

• To get most of the popular EDM styles Jordy Dazz (Jordy van Oostveen) was asked to join. He reworked the compellingDishonored 2 theme song into a progressive techno track. “As a fan of games and scoring-music, it's such a great thing to have worked together with Bethesda doing something creative with both elements.”

Remixes are available today via each DJs official Soundcloud channel – and can all be found here -

Plus a new Resistance Mode Mission – “Uncle S.A.M.” - now available for all players 

Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios today released the second piece of additional single player content for Homefront®: The Revolution. 

Aftermath is set in the days after the Battle for Philadelphia, when the fledgling rebellion hangs in the balance. The inspirational Resistance figurehead Benjamin Walker has been broken by the KPA, and is now broadcasting counter-revolutionary propaganda for the enemy. Support for the embattled Resistance is ebbing away… 

As Ethan Brady, you have been tasked to assassinate the man once known as the ‘Voice of Freedom’ for the sake of the Revolution. But instead, you will defy orders and embark on a daring rescue mission. 

Aftermath is free to all holders of the Homefront Expansion Pass, and available to purchase separately for $5.99 (regional pricing may vary). It is ready to download now for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam. 

A new FREE Resistance Mode Mission - Uncle S.A.M. - has also been added as part of this week’s patch, and is available to all players. Your Squad must counter the KPA’s aerial superiority by deploying S.A.M. launchers, then take out their Air Force’s high command in a deadly strike…  Any players returning to Homefront: The Revolution will also find that the recent ‘Performance Patch’ has massively improved the overall experience. 

For more information and to get the latest updates on Homefront: The Revolution, follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @HomefrontGame or on Facebook at, or visit 


The Revolution has begun and most of Philadelphia is now under Resistance control, but as the fighting intensifies morale is being destroyed by KPA propaganda broadcasts from the captured Resistance leader Walker.  Against all odds you must defy orders and attempt to rescue Walker before the Resistance silence him permanently…. 
·        Play as lone wolf Ethan Brady and defy resistance leadership to liberate Walker from the clutches of the KPA 
·        Discover what happened to Walker after his capture and why he is broadcasting against the resistance 
·        Cross into new areas of KPA occupied Philadelphia and risk your life for what many believe is a resistance traitor 


The KPA are in the process of re-establishing their air support across Philadelphia. If we let them get their air force back online, we'll be seriously outgunned and all our hard fought progress could be undone. We've located the site where they are co-ordinating this support. We want the Wraiths to go in and knock out the dusters so that our S.A.M. launchers can come in and deal with the rest of the airforce. Once the S.A.M. launchers have been deployed, we need you to head to the KPA headquarters and assassinate the officials responsible for the air support program. 


Homefront®: The Revolution is an open-world first person shooter where you must lead the Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare against a superior military force. 

A living, breathing, open world responds to your actions - you and your Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight. 

But your enemy has the advantage - superior technology, firepower, heavy armour and air support. You must learn the art of guerrilla warfare  – ambush, sabotage, infiltration, deception – and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia. 

And the single player campaign is just the start – in Co-Op you and your friends can form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution! 

·        Explore a living, breathing open world - experience true open world gameplay in a first person shooter, brought to life with astonishing CRYENGINE-powered visuals 

·        Wage Guerrilla Warfare - this is no linear shooter; learn the art of guerrilla warfare and use ambush, infiltration and hit and run tactics against your foe in thrilling un-scripted firefights 

·        Build the Resistance - recruit revolutionaries to the cause, establish bases and safehouses, capture and customise a deadly arsenal, and build improvised, homebrew weapons for your Guerrilla Tool Kit 

·        Ignite the Revolution - from oppressed citizen to revolutionary leader, an epic single-player campaign tells the story of the second War of Independence. The dynamic, evolving world responds to your actions as an oppressed nation rises up in defiance against the occupation 

·        Online Co-Op - take the battle online, form a Resistance Cell with your friends and earn your reputation as Heroes of the Revolution
