Ruthless Is The Way Of Things In Ghost Recon Wildlands

Ubisoft have released the TV spot for Ghost Recon Wildlands, though calling it a spot would be an insult. Directed by legendary action director John McTiernan, known for Die Hard, Predator and more, this spot shows off a little of the ghosts first mission in Bolivia.

“Ruthless” is the story of those who we do not see, the invisible but determined hands that will execute Justice. Justice with blood and bullets. The video shows the Santa Blanca cartel exactions as the organization is slowly extending its grip on Bolivia and its people to make it become a narco-state. But now, they are no longer alone. Fear will fill the souls of the corrupted because they are coming. The Ghosts are coming.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands will release on March 7th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and those who want to sample the game can jump into the open beta right now.

Australia Joins Up In Civilization VI

2K and Firaxis have updated Civilization VI today, bringing forth a range of updates, including the addition of Australia to the mix.

To see all the updates included, be sure to hit up the offical blog post for the details. For those who want to play the new Australian scenario, you can purchase it direct on Steam.

In addition, below is a brief Q&A with Pete Murray – Firaxis Games answering two of the most asked questions around Australia’s inclusion in Civilization VI.

1. Why did you choose to add Australia to Civilization VI?

We often look to the Civilization community to help us identify cultures that might be interesting to include, and ones that fulfil a gameplay role as well. For this DLC, we were looking to create a civ that had the ability to make optimal use of coastal territory and attractive land, and Australia felt like it was an interesting choice. Australia has also been a civ that players have requested frequently in the past. With our True Start Location Earth Map, Australia fills a noticeable geographic gap and their civ bonuses work well with the beautiful (but arid!) continent.

2. Why did you pick John Curtin as Australia’s leader?

When we choose leaders for a civ, we want to find a leader who represents something positive about the culture. John Curtin not only provided Australia with strong leadership during World War II, but he laid the groundwork for Australia to participate in the post-war world as a full partner nation. He made the first push to single out Australia as a diplomatic force that was independent from Britain and willing to be a staunch American ally. He has a solid legacy in Australia today, and we felt he represented the civ well.

Become A Mimic Master In Prey

Bethesda have released a new video for Prey and while the game has lots of tense moments, the new video shows that there are times when you can go a little crazy and just Mimic your way around.

When you awaken aboard the Talos I space station, you find yourself as the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. Talos I has been overrun by an alien force, and you must stop the Typhon threat from destroying humanity. As Morgan Yu, and mankind’s last hope, fend off the alien infestation armed with the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities.

“Mimic is a really fun power with a lot of uses,” says Lead Designer Ricardo Bare. “The most obvious is stealth. It's a great way to hide from an alien that might be too strong for you. Or, you can get the drop on an alien by ambushing them. It's also a really good way to access a closed-off area. Maybe there's a security booth that you don't have the key to – you could mimic something small enough to slip through a security slot.”

One of the first alien powers you’ll learn is Mimic Matter. Acquired from the diminutive (and aptly named) Mimic Typhon, this power allows you to take the form of just about any appropriately sized object aboard Talos I. You’ll start small – a coffee mug, a teapot, a lamp, a banana – but as you level up this ability, you’ll soon be able to mimic more complex objects, including an impressive array of security turrets and Operator robots.
