Tequila Works have – after a very long wait – announced a release date for their upcoming puzzle adventure game, RiME.

RiME will be released on the PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 26th. The game will have a physical release alongside the digital release and cost $29.99 on all platforms. Following its initial release, RiME will also make its way to the Nintendo Switch in the near future for $39.99. No release window was given for the Switch version.

RiME was recently re-revealed to the public by IGN who also included a lengthy gameplay video showing off the first 27 minutes of the game. You can check out the video below which contains very minimal spoilers. If you’re looking to go into the game cold turkey, you might want to avoid the video as it does show off a nice chunk of the game world.

Stay tuned to OnlySP for further information on RiME as Tequila Works continues to reveal more information about the game. Be on the lookout for a review of RiME not long after its release this May.

PS: Hey all, it’s been a while!

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.
