Hello Uplay Gamers,

Gamescom may be behind us but it gave us plenty to look forward to. Check out our summary of some of the new things that were shown this year for many of our upcoming titles. It's sure to keep you excited over the coming months.

Where do we start? How about with PC? Yes, we've got some goodies coming for you PC gamers to get your hands on. We've got thoroughbred PC titles all the way to some features that you will be able to get your hands on first.

Might & Magic Heroes VII

Might and Magic Heroes VII pays tribute to a franchise that has graced PCs the world over for 20 years. Prepare yourselves for the upcoming release on the 29th September and the upcoming closed beta 2 on August the 26th.

Check out the Might & Magic Heroes VII tribute trailer and get ready to take the next step in your adventure.


ANNO 2205

Next let's talk about ANNO 2205. Part of a PC focused franchise that has been around for over 17 years the next installment takes us into the world of tomorrow to build and thrive in an all new setting. Some would say that the sky is the limit, but in ANNO 2205 that is simply not the case as you have the opportunity to no only remain on Earth but to seek out resources on our glorious night time natural satellite... The Moon.

Check out the latest trailer and prepare yourselves for the next great journey.


Rainbow Six Siege

While Rainbow Six Siege will be coming to PC and Consoles, PC Gamers will be the first to get their hands on the recently announced spectator cam. Whether you're just watching your friends play or if you're taking on Siege as your next competitive title and want to study your opponents, the spectator cam is ready for you. Furthermore, if you were too busy during Gamescom to check out the stream then you missed out on an amazing showcase tournament held by Ubisoft and ESL that saw Streamers, R6 Veterans and top players from the closed alpha go head to head in 5v5 match ups. Don't worry though, you can still find it on Twitch HERE! (http://www.twitch.tv/ubisoft/v/10144824)

If you're looking to get a glimpse at what the Spectator cam will bring then check out the trailer below.


We won't just end with the PC announcements however. There are of course some goodies that everyone can enjoy no matter which platform you want to call your home.

For Honor

The fine folks at Ubisoft Montreal working on the exciting new IP For Honor gave us some insight into where the game finds its origins as well as giving us a glimpse of the inspiring passion that has, and continues to be poured into bringing us all this fantastic looking game. We don't know about you but here on the Uplay team we can't wait to get out hands on this game. Which side will you be choosing?


Assassin's Creed Syndicate

We've seen Jacob Frye, the top hat glad badass strut his stuff already and we know he's no strange to an old fashioned dust-up, but we've seen little of his sister's approach to fighting for their cause. At Gamescom we were given a glimpse into the play style of his twin sister Evie and we liked what we saw. Stealth and discretion are her game and from what we could tell, few will pose her a challenge. Striking in silence from the shadows and using here abilities to remain unseen, Evie is sure to bring the tactical approach to taking down her foes that her brother might... lets say, not take quite as seriously.


The Crew - Wild Run

Start those engines and prepare yourself to explore the open roads of the United States like never before. The Crew - Wild Run is here to bring a massive high octane update to the base game and oh boy, is it looking good. HUD updates, new vehicles (Motorcycles) New specs (including drag and drift), dynamic weather and so much more. With a host of new challenges, game modes and the ability to make your own races... this update is sure to blow some minds.


That's it for today folks but if you just can't get enough then let others know what you think.
