Splinter Cell & Assassin’s Creed VR Titles In Development

Splinter Cell VR

Ubisoft has some massive franchises that they regularly churn out titles from, but it looks like they are secretly working on utilizing them in a different way in the future. Reports suggest that both Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed Oculus VR games are in development, and that they will be exclusive to the device.

The Information reports that Mark Zuckerberg has been pushing to have bigger exclusives on the Oculus VR storefront, which is something it has been lacking. Considering that Splinter Cell and especially Assassin’s Creed are huge draws, these are the types of games that could get many more people to take the plunge into the world of VR gaming.

What remains unclear at this moment is what kind of games these will ultimately end up being. These could be smaller experiences similar to Batman: Arkham VR, previous games given the VR treatment or even full-blown titles. I’m not sure if the company would be willing to take the risk of releasing the next mainline Assassin’s Creed or Splinter Cell title exclusively in VR, but it’s possible that they could have a secondary team work on a smaller title.

Of course, this is all a rumor at this point, so we’ll need to take things with a grain of salt for the time being. Rumors have been swirling for a while now regarding the reemergence of the Splinter Cell franchise, though it would seem weird for it to happen via a VR title. We’ll bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
