Ubisoft Pulls Licenses for The Crew, Makes the Game Completely Inaccessible to Buyers

From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

From announcing a $130 edition of Star Wars Outlaws to pulling game licenses from those that bought The Crew, Ubisoft sure is on a roll this week.

The Crew was Ubisoft's open-world racing game that was pulled from sale back in December 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Ubisoft shut down the online servers for The Crew. This effectively made the game unplayable across all platforms, including: PC,...
 

Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition. Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

During today's pre-recorded podcast and subsequent blog post, head of Xbox Phil Spencer stated that four Xbox exclusives are going to be multi-platform releases. Is it Starfield? Indiana Jones? Gears of War? Halo?! No, no, no, and no. Though Spencer did not specify what those four titles ...

  • AEW: Fight Forever Reveals Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch Mode

    AEW: Fight Forever Reveals Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch Mode

    No virtual wrestlers will actually die.

    THQ Nordic and AEW just revealed a new game mode for the upcoming wrestling game AEW Fight Forever. That mode is none other than the Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch mode. I never saw any such match before in my life but their description of it being "extremely punishing" sounds quite appropriate.

    I suppose there isn't too much more to say about the Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch mode. Everything you need to know about...

    Ubisoft Back on their Exclusive Storefront BS Again

    Several upcoming titles are not headed to Steam.

    Remember how in November 2022, Ubisoft made this big return to Steam? Since the initial release of Assassin's Creed Valhalla on Valve's platform, Ubisoft released several other newer titles. It looked like Ubisoft was playing a bit of catchup with releases on Steam after several of these titles enjoyed long exclusivity periods on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft's own storefront, Ubisoft Connect.

    With this trickle of Ubisoft...

  • Valve Ditches Dota 2 Battle Pass

    Valve Ditches Dota 2 Battle Pass

    Battle Pass when? NEVER!

    Dota 2 is about to turn ten years old. How does Valve choose to celebrate the milestone? They opted for violence. Well, not really. Valve is set to celebrate ten years of Dota 2 with "some fun stuff." This "fun stuff" won't be available until sometime after July 9th, the date that Dota 2 officially turns ten.

    Perhaps the biggest takeaway from Valve's latest Dota 2 blog is the fact that they are ditching the Battle Pass. The...

  • Day One Patch Confirmed for Final Fantasy 16

    Day One Patch Confirmed for Final Fantasy 16

    It will be a relatively small patch.

    Square Enix initially said that there wouldn't be a day one patch for Final Fantasy 16. The studio may have been a tad hasty in making that proclamation because they are now saying that Final Fantasy 16 will indeed have a day one patch at release.

    The good news here is that the patch will be quite small in size, roughly 300MB. During a pre-launch live stream for Final Fantasy 16, producer Naoki Yoshida confirmed that there will be a...
