Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players find ancient alien bow in rock pile

Here I thought the Borderlands games were the only ones that would chuck cool loot at you when you hit clumps of dirt and rock, but it turns out Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has something to hide in its rock piles too. Over the weekend, Valhalla players managed to find a secret Isu bow by repeatedly whacking a rather unassuming pile of rocks – however, this definitely isn’t the way you’re supposed to find it.

Riders Republic puts the brakes on release until later this year

Riders Republic was, in my eyes, one of the most exciting games announced near the tail end of 2020. I’ve longed for something to replace the SSX-shaped hole in my heart and Ubisoft’s snowboarding game Steep didn’t do it, but this bigly multiplayer game which features snowboarding, mountain biking, and wingsuits looks it could have the scale and silliness I want. And so, the bad news: it’s been delayed from its planned February 25th release date to simply “later this year”. (more…)

It features an open-world centered around American national parks including Bryce…

Crafting might not be the hot trend it was a few years ago, but that doesn’t mean games will stop making you collect a load of seemingly useless tat to clutter up your bags. In Assassins Creed Valhalla, you’ll be grappling with bags full of fabric, chunks of titanium, iron, and leather, all while trying to invade England and find allies.Thankfully, while your inventory is stuffed with runes, trinkets and trade goods, amongst all of that, you’ll only need those handful of different items to upgrade your equipment to continue your quest.

Have You Played… Far Cry Primal?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I’m a sucker for Far Cry’s charismatic bad guys. Since Far Cry 3, Ubisoft has obviously been aiming to write villians that thrill and terrify in equal measure, but with the stone-age Far Cry Primal they weren’t as concerned about handsome, hypnotic lunatics, or superforeigners that were here to save the day via a never-ending stream of bullets. To my eyes, at least, they wanted to stick Far Cry’s survival of the fittest hunting and gathering in a game where it…
