Ubisoft has revealed new details about upcoming The Division movie. Staring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain as previously announced, the film will be directed by David Leitch and written by Rafe Judkins. And will be exclusive to Netflix.
Gamestop listed Splinter Cell: Sam Fischer Goggles as an E3 collectible but delisted it day after. Maybe a pre-E3 leak?
They stated that at the time they decided to remove review bombs, they defined it as “an event where players post a large number of reviews in a very compressed time frame, aimed at lowering the Review Score of a game.”, since there were no examples of one “positive review bombs”.
According to Valve, what happened to AC: Unity seems not to be a case of the review bomb as actual players increased alongside the reviews and most of the reviews looks like standard reviews of a new player, or a player that’s returning to a product they bought a while ago.
And about if it is off-topic or not, they said they’re not sure since context can change. Mentioning that if there’s a game that heavily focused on Christmas, they “suspect we’d see it have Review Score fluctuations around Christmas-time”.

The Division 2 sold ten times more than its predecessor in Ubisoft Store as consumers chose to buy the game from the publisher’s own store — where the company don’t have to pay a singe cut — instead of the Epic Games Store.
Ubisoft revealed new Tom Clancy’s title, Ghost Recon Breakpoint. But yet again, it will skip Steam in favor of Epic Games Store.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft has mentioned that “additional select titles” would be exclusive to the Epic Games Store throughout 2019. And since, all of the three “major” release — The Division 2, Anno 1800, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint — has been announced to be Epic Games Store exclusive.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint will release on October 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
After Ubisoft funded €500,000 and gave Assassin’s Creed Unity away for free according to what happened to Notre Damn, the game received hundreds of positive reviews, which was enough to change it’s “Mixed” rating to “Very Positive”.
Review bombing is review bombing, recent positive reviews in Assassin’s Creed Unity is off-topic and has nothing to do with the game it self. Therefore, it is not any different to Borderlands 2 reviews and Steam should remove it to make their system consistent and neutral. If they doesn’t, it is not any different from biased censorship.
Ubisoft announced that they chose to make Anno 1800 a Epic Games Store exclusive after “the successful launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2“.
Like The Division 2, Anno 1800 will be only available on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store. And only who pre-ordered the game on Steam will get their copy through Steam. Steam users also won’t be able to participate the open beta.
And this time, they also announced that “Pre-orders on Steam can be made until the release of the game”.
