Crysis 3 drops another Wonder, and it’s Death embodied



7-wonders-of-crysis-3---episode-4---the-typhoon---4Each installment of the Crysis series has completely blown us away with its over the top graphical prowess. However, all of that visual splendor would be lost without beautiful machines of murder to properly convey just how much tissue is torn from an alien’s body when you pepper it with lead. Director Albert Hughes, in collaboration with Crytek and EA, has released this fourth masterpiece in the series displaying the power of Crysis 3. This time showcasing the stupid deadly Typhoon rifle.

Firing five hundred rounds per SECOND through multiple barrels, this BFG completely mows through anything in its path. One could only imagine the chaos these bullets would wreak if the CryEngine supported destructible environments. This gun looks like it could carve a hole straight through someone’s skull and continue on to puncture though layers of concrete. I felt discouraged from combat during my play through of Crysis 2 due to a combination of the massively overpowered camouflage ability and weapons that just didn’t feel rewarding, but this monster alone just gets me giddy. I cannot wait to unleash hell.

Crysis 3 is set to release on February 19th for XBOX 360, Playstation 3, and PC. Check out this video and, but please, try to contain your maniacal laughter.


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 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.
