Ubisoft Announces The Crew Calling All Units Expansion

Ubisoft today announced that The Crew Calling All Units, the second major expansion for The Crew action-driving MMO, will be available for download on November 29th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The Ultimate Edition will also be released simultaneously.

Players will hit the road as a cop or street racer to prove their driving skills and team up in crews to take over the USA. This new police-chase fantasy will be introduced to players through a twelve-mission story that will allow them to build up their own cop style and tactics, ride in fully tuned police vehicles and collect new parts, vehicles and XP.

In this always-on, all-terrain confrontation, each side will rely on a set of special abilities and a great variety of vehicles as they race across the US. As a member of the police, players chase street racers across the US in high-risk pursuits. They will perform successful arrests and get their hands on a wide range of exclusive cop vehicles, from exotic supercars to legendary motorbikes or indestructible SUVs, fully tuned up with police livery and light bars. Players who prefer to hit the roads as a racer will take off with cargo for heart-pounding rides and high rewards. Chases can be triggered anywhere, anytime, bringing even more intensity to the multiplayer experience.

Additionally, all The Crew players will be able to take part in this frantic face-off as they will have total access to the street racer gameplay, which includes special abilities such as blinding flashbangs and unlimited nitro. All players will also enjoy the new level cap, now set to 60.

For the fullest driving experience, The Crew Ultimate Edition will also be made available on November 29th. It includes the main game, The Crew Wild Run expansion and the brand new The Crew Calling All Units expansion, as well as the Season Pass vehicles with their customization options.

Watch Dogs 2 Unveils New PvP Mode “Bounty Hunters”

Ubisoft today unveiled the new Bounty Hunter mode for Watch Dogs 2.

A new approach to online play in Watch Dogs 2, the Bounty Hunter mode is tied to the police heat system and playable by two to four players. When a player creates too much chaos in the single player open world experience and is pursued by the police, the conflict may trigger a Bounty Hunter PVP event pitting the target against up to three rival hunter players who seamlessly join the pursuit and try to neutralize the target. Additionally, players can manually trigger a bounty on themselves using the Contacts app on Marcus’ in-game phone.

Another online mode players can experience is Hacking Invasion, a fan-favorite from the original Watch Dogs. The objective of this PVP mode is to download data from a target player while remaining undetected. Finally, Online Co-op allows two players to team up seamlessly and lets players explore the San Francisco Bay Area, or participate in cooperative missions. Also in co-op, players can also participate in Hacking Invasion and Bounty Hunter activities, adding even more depth and excitement to their seamless online experience.

Watch Dogs 2 will release on November 15th on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. All PS4 players will be granted a 30-day exclusive access to all the post launch DLC.

Nosulus Rift Experience Unveiled for South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Ubisoft today announced the Nosulus Rift, a unique experience exclusively compatible with the South Park: The Fractured But Whole video game. This device, only available during conventions and not for sale, takes virtual reality to a whole new level by allowing players to enjoy South Park: The Fractured But Whole in the most immersive way possible. A new perception through a sense that has never been tickled in gaming before, the sense of smell. To smell what exactly? Farts, obviously.

As in South Park: The Stick Of Truth, farts will be again the most powerful weapon players will be able to handle in its direct sequel, South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Through uniquely-produced technology, the Nosulus Rift odor virtual reality mask will deliver the right smell each time the player makes use of his nefarious powers.

The Nosulus Rift is developed by Productman, the Buzzman entity dedicated to the creation of products or services, with the assistance of various experts, including the famous French perfume specialist Isabelle Ferrand. The fully functional mask makes use of sensors activated through inaudible soundwaves from the in-game fart sound to trigger the odor’s puff. Each time the sensors are activated, a smell will be released meticulously and without mercy.

The Nosulus Rift will be world premiered at Gamescom, from August 17th to 21st. Fans can come visit Ubisoft’s booth for a chance to experience it. The Nosulus Rift will also be available in a selection of events worldwide prior to the game’s launch, including PAX West in Seattle, WA from September 2nd to 5th.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available on December 6th as a digital download and at retailers on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
