The future of Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be seen in the Ubisoft Forward

A few days ago the consecrated Assassin’s Creed Valhalla received the first of the two paid expansions, the Wrath of the Druids, and the second is not far off at all. The Siege of Paris, as this additional content will be called, has a summer arrival date from the northern hemisphere and will take us to fight with Eivor in France.

According to what can be read on the official Twitter account of the assassins franchise, the French plan to take a good look at what will be all the future content of the title in its exclusive event this June 12, I mean the Ubisoft Forward. It is very possible that the exact date of arrival of the title will be confirmed there along with a look at the gameplay of the game and perhaps some detail until now unknown of what will come.

Ubisoft’s proposals in addition to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Although games like Prince of Persia are already known to not participate in the event as guests, it is very likely that Ubisoft will bet heavily on Far Cry 6, Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic and perhaps the famous crossover known as BattleCat will also make a very brief appearance, although the latter seems more difficult.

We will have the exact answers after the 12th in an event that promises a lot to start living the excitement of E3 with a little anticipation.

Steam Deck 2 won’t arrive for a couple of years

Steam Deck 2 won't arrive for a couple of years

When asked about the possible arrival of a more powerful Steam Deck, Valve’s Pierre-Loup Griffais hinted that we won’t see a successor to the hybrid between PC and portable console for at least a couple of years. The decision depends both on the intention to maintain a fixed ecosystem in terms of optimization targets for developers, guaranteeing players that every Deck in circulation is able to run the same titles, and on hardware issues.

Valve, Griffais said, will work on increasing performance only when it is possible to significantly increase power without significant impacts on efficiency and autonomy. And it’s something that according to the developer won’t happen over the next two years. We will therefore have to wait until at least 2025 if not 2026 to see a Steam Deck 2 appear.

Changing performance levels is not something we take lightly and we only want to do it when a significant enough improvement can be achieved. We also don’t want increased performance to come at a significant cost to power efficiency and battery life. I don’t foresee such a leap being possible in the next couple of years, but we are still closely monitoring innovations in architecture and manufacturing processes to see where this goes. – Pierre-Loup Griffais, Valve

Despite Griffais’ words, improved versions of the current model cannot be ruled out which would undoubtedly benefit from greater autonomy or a screen with Variable Refresh Rate. Just think of the recent rumors about the new Valve hardware and also how it never refers to specific models, excluding only the increase in power.

Meanwhile, the Steam Deck is still capable of running the latest games but struggles with titles like Starfield, despite the optimizations of version 3.5 of the console’s operating system, unlike consoles like the Asus ROG Ally and the Ayaneo AIR 1S. It stays through most attractive in terms of price /quality ratio, being available for 419 euros in the version with 64 GB of storage, however expandable with solutions such as the WD Black SN770M SSD.

Director of Star Wars Jedi Survivor Leaves EA, Why

Director of Star Wars Jedi Survivor Leaves EA, Why

Director of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Jedi: Survivor, Stig Asmussen is reportedly leaving Electronic Arts ( EA ). Why?

According to reports, Asmussen is leaving EA to seek other challenges in his gaming industry career.

“With careful thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has decided to leave Respawn to pursue other adventures, and we wish him the best,” an EA spokesperson said.

“Respawn’s veteran leaders will take a key role in guiding the team as they continue their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor,” EA continued.

Asmussen has been a director at Respawn Entertainment for 14 years. Previously, he worked at Sony Interactive Entertainment, where he primarily worked on the God of War series, including God of War III.

Currently, Asmussen has not yet determined his next destination.

The Star Wars: Jedi series has been a striking success story for EA, making it something of an exception to the company’s experience with the franchise as a whole. When EA first revealed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in 2018, the company had just faced major controversy over the implementation of loot boxes in Battlefront 2.

Despite being criticized for bugs, Fallen Order turned out to be a success for EA , and Survivor further strengthened the series.

Asmussen previously said that he wanted to make Star Wars: Jedi a trilogy, so his sudden departure is all the more surprising.

The second story of Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves

The second part of the collaboration between Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves and Monkey Island will take us on a search for three lost symbols.

The last Xbox Game Showcase had several protagonists. Fable, Clockwork Revolution, and Towerbone were some of the titles that attracted the most attention, without forgetting Starfield. However, there was another exclusive Microsoft game that announced the news at the show that, in the meantime, was somewhat more covered up.

We talk about Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves and its new free expansion: The Legend of Monkey Island. A unique collaboration with the iconic license that allows us to live unique adventures. A series of new chapters that allow us to explore Melee Island and enjoy new game mechanics. Something that we already saw in the first chapter and that is repeated in the second that is now available.

Return to Melee Island and embark on a new adventure

Dubbed The Search for Guybrush, this new grand tale picks up where the previous one left off. In it, we have the mission to make Guybrush Threepwood see reason, for which we will have to find the three symbols with true pirate courage. This new chapter brings new mechanics and new areas available on Melee Island to explore.

Previously, we could only visit the city, while the rest of the island was covered by a mysterious fog that prevented passage and has now moved in some areas.

Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves is now available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, in addition to being included in Xbox Game Pass.
