We're back with the Uplay PC weekly digest, a regular summary of all the latest Ubisoft PC news.


The first Q&A session on the Watch Dogs sub-reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/watch_dogs/comments/4o4v37/qa_w_jonathan_morin_and_dominic_guay_thursday/) went down so well, the team decided to make it into a regular series. Check out the latest session on the Ubisoft forums (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1484862-Q-amp-A-Lite-Dominic-Guay-answering-question-on-Twitter-Aug-19th) and be sure to follow @watchdogsgame (https://twitter.com/watchdogsgame) to take part in any future sessions.


We're over the half way mark of the Ubi30 celebrations now and we've seen 4 great games make it into your hands over the past 4 months, the latest being The Crew. It is time however to jump back to a good old classic and relive gaming history with Beyond Good and Evil!

Check back on October 12th to pick up your copy for free! Be sure to pick The Crew if you havenít done so already through the Ubi30 tab in Uplay PC.

The Division team this week is focused on that sweet, sweet loot! In short, with Update 1.4 you can expect to receive a lot more loot and potential upgrades, allowing you to experiment with different builds and work on your min-maxing. The overall goal is to bring in more experimentation with different Gear sets, talents and builds to shake up the meta. Implementing these changes will also bring life to large parts of the game.

In case you missed it, check out the State of the Game (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-270159-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) and read more about the loot changes here. (http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-US/news/152-270142-16/the-hunt-for-loot)


With Just Dance coming to the PC for the first time, we figured you might have some questions as to how it works. Just Dance 2017 on PC will use your smartphone as a controller, download the Just Dance Controller App (on iOS or Android) and simply connect it to the same network as your PC. You can also use your webcam to record yourself and create an Autodance video mashup that you can share.

You can find more information and the system requirements on the Just Dance website. (http://just-dance.ubisoft.com/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-269225-16&ct=tcm:154-76770-32)


For Honorís recent closed alpha provided a lot of crucial feedback. The development team are hard at work going through all of this information and refining, balancing and polishing the experience ready for the next step. Check out the recap below for the valuable takeaways from the Alpha.

You might remember from E3 that we showed a mission with the Ghosts capturing and extracting El Pozolero Ė The Stewmaker Ė one of the main villains of the cartel. In that mission we watch the Ghosts go in during the light of day. Now letís see what could have happened if they went under the cover of darkness, using stealth to their advantage.


Ghost Recon Wildlands allows you to choose how to approach a mission and select the appropriate gear for the task at hand. You can read more at the Ghost Recon Wildlands website.

That's all this week, thanks for reading!
