Earlier this week Ubisoft and For Honor teased an upcoming collaboration with other Ubisoft franchise, Assassin’s Creed, with a mysterious video message. It seems the two history twining titles are pairing up with a limited time expansion in For Honor.

Titled For The Creed, this new timed event allows player to jump into the AC universe and take on either the Assassin Brotherhood or the Templars. Players can take part in an all new Dominion mode, battle in re-skinned maps themed to Assassin’s Creed, fight with new weapons iconic to the AC series, pull off new AC styled emotes like leaping into hay bales, and tons more. Even the symbolic air assassination has been added to the mix when competing in For Honor.

 

 

The new seasonal event runs from December 20, 2018 to January 10 2019. For Honor is available on the PS4, PC and Xbox One. The recent expansion, Marching Fire, was released back in October and adds the Wu-Lin Shaolin warriors to the fray.

[Original Story]

Ubisoft and their multiplayer historical warrior combat game, For Honor, have been continuously adding more and more content to the game since its release almost two years ago. Clean off a fresh DLC drop titled Marching Fire, which adds the new Wu Lin faction to the game back in October, a rather cryptic message was recently shared by the For Honor Twitter account.

 

 

The message was simple and short, but for any Assassin’s Creed fans it’s an obvious hint towards potentially crossing over the two IPs. Along with the iconic message taken from the Assassin’s Brotherhood in the Assassin’s Creed series, “Nothing is true, everything is permitted”, a short video also added to the tease.

Starting off the short video is also the familiar logos from For Honor and Assassin’s Creed’s modern day corporation, Abstergo, pairing up together. This could mean any number of things, but considering there’s some flare to the reveal, we’re counting on it being something bigger than a simple cosmetic tie-in.

The official reveal is set to be announced on December 20, 2018, but everything seems to be pointing towards the two Ubisoft titles clashing together. Will we see assassins enter the mix of vikings, samurais, knights, and now Shaolin warriors? It would definitely seem like a perfect pairing given the already eclectic mash up between fierce warriors in the online melee combat game.

Check back later for more details on what exactly Ubisoft and For Honor revealed with their upcoming reveal.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
