New The Walking Dead: The Final Season Trailer Hints at a Visit to the Past

The Walking Dead

Players will step into history—at least briefly—in ‘Broken Toys’, the third episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, if the game’s new trailer is any indication.

The new footage (embedded below) provides momentary glimpses of Lee, the first season’s protagonist, and a younger version of Clementine, but offers no real indication of how these flashback appearances will be integrated into the present-day story.

Aside from this enticing piece of fan service, the trailer promises the return of the harrowing scenes and themes that the series has become synonymous with over the years. The newest episode continues where the previous left off, with Clementine preparing to save the people that she has befriended across the two epsiodes thus far.

The trailer also reveals the episode’s release date of January 15 on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Following the closure of Telltale Games last year, many fans feared that The Walking Dead would never see its conclusion, but Skybound Games swooped in to ensure the fate of the series. ‘Broken Toys’ is the first episode to be developed under the new custodianship. Skybound is also set to produce the final entry in the long-running series, ‘Take Us Back’, and release it at some point later this year.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead was recently recognised as #19 of OnlySP’s 50 Favourite Games.

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.
