Rebel Galaxy Release Dates Announced for Consoles, 1080p on PS4

Published

Double Damage Games has just announced when gamers will finally get their hands on the console versions of the critically acclaimed, Rebel Galaxy.

According to the developers Twitter account, Rebel Galaxy will release in the US on Jan 5th for the PS4, with the Xbox One version following shortly after on January 13th. In Europe, the tentative release date for the game is set for Jan 12th, but may not arrive until Jan 19th.

Last week the developers revealed that Rebel Galaxy would be 1080p on the PS4. I looked through their Twitter feed a bit and couldn’t find any info on the Xbox One’s resolution, but I’d assume it’s either 900p or 1080p. Both versions run at 30 frames-per-second.

Rebel Galaxy will cost you $20 when it’s released on consoles, the same price as the PC version of the game.

We reviewed Rebel Galaxy when it released earlier this year and were pretty impressed by it. Here’s a snippet of our review:

Rebel Galaxy is a brilliantly atmospheric game that delivers on the developer’s promises of impactful, enjoyable action sequences that overcomes anything it might sacrifice in the name of approachability. If you ever wanted to be a bad-ass space captain carving your reputation amongst the stars – in a…mostly legal fashion – then Rebel Galaxy will almost certainly deliver.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Published

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.
