In the Valley of Gods - Campo Santo

Firewatch developer Campo Santo has announced its next game titled, In the Valley of Gods.

The game has been revealed with a target release window of 2019. Though Campo Santo is only planning for a PC release, the indie developer has not ruled out other platforms.

Similarly to Firewatch, In the Valley of Gods is a single-player narrative experience that will take place in the 1920s. The premise, as described by Campo Santo on the game’s official website, will put players in the shoes of an explorer “in hopes of making a seemingly-impossible discovery and an incredible film.”

The gameplay and graphics are similar to Firewatch with a cel-shaded aesthetic. That being said, Campo Santo has made sure to confirm that Firewatch and In the Valley of Gods have no relation to each other.

Firewatch launched last year on PC, so In the Valley of Gods‘s release window of two years in the future should be no surprise.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
