Focus Home Interactive announced a new partnership with Lords of the Fallen developer, Deck13, today as they are currently working on an unannounced sci-fi RPG due for release in 2017.

The new game is an action RPG set in a “dystopian” future with “innovative” combat mechanics, according to the press release.

The new game will feature innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.

Lords of the Fallen, aside from some minor technical issues was a rather solid game, so we’re definitely looking forward to hearing what’s next from the studio. Lords of the Fallen 2 will also not be developed by Deck13 as they recently ended their contract with CI Games, who owns the franchise and will now develop the  sequel in-house.

We may or may not see Deck13’s new game at E3 this year as the press release notes the game will be fully revealed at a later date. Currently, Deck13’s new game is scheduled to release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2017.

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.
