DONTNOD Partnering With Vampyr Publisher Again For One of “Most Ambitious” Projects Yet




Life is Strange and Vampyr developer DONTNOD Entertainment has renewed its partnership with Focus Home Interactive, promising an ambitious new project is in the works.

While no real details of that project are yet available, Focus Home COO John Bert teased that the game “is intended to be among the most ambitious in the history of Focus and DONTNOD.”

However, Bert does provide a hint that the upcoming title will play to the established strengths of DONTNOD, saying that the team “already amply demonstrated their talents to create rich universes, enhanced by a masterful narrative and unique artistic direction,” and that Focus Home is “proud to […]allow the talent of the studio to express itself.”

Last year, the same developer-publisher duo released Vampyr, which has officially crossed the one million sales mark. OnlySP’s review scored Vampyr as a Credit, concluding that, while enjoyable and engaging, the game could have gone further in developing its most unique aspects.

Aside from this new project, DONTNOD is currently releasing Life is Strange 2 with Square-Enix and developing the episodic thriller Twin Mirror with Namco Bandai.

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.
