Ubisoft announces War World

Ubisoft announces War World

Ubisoft and The Third Wave unveil a new XBLA game, War World, scheduled for the end of the summer. From the screens, it seems like it's gonna be a third person shooter filled with big robots and palm-trees.

XBLA doesn't need these types of games

it should be a place to make low risk intuitive pick up and play games. These 3D XBLA games are pretty much budjet full games.

however, still technically impressive for an XBLA game

Looks very nice for a arcade game. About time XBLA got some good games but they is a few coming up.

OMG i'm in love I can't wait! Why complain about getting this good of a game for XBLA?

This game is simply gorgeous, especially considering that it has a size limit of 250MB. I can't wait to play this bad puppy online.

The only regret I have about this bad boy, is that everytime I look at it, I think about why is SEGA such a screw up for a company, and when are they going to bring hits like Virtual On to XBLA.

Ubisoft's World War shows that VO can be done, so why oh why can we not get any VO love from SEGA?

This game looks amazing. So many great things could be done with "arcade" games but few companies want to put their best efforts into it. Then again the same is true for full games (most are crap) so its the standard of the industry.

For the sake of constructiveness, I say make Treyarch build a Die By The Sword game for arcade (best and most advanced sword fighter ever) or Stainless make a Carmageddon game (most advanced inhouse physics ever). Both are active in the industry right now and both are churning out lacklustre material (especially Stainless with Missile Command and other forgettable titles).

Scarface: Your point is good, but if it werent for arcade this would be a 60-buck full game like Bomberman Act Zero or Fusion Frenzy 2. There is a place for those games and its not on a pressed disc and store shelf.

coz i'd rather buy, play and then sell a full game and lose about £10, than buy and get stuck with an XBLA game that is trying to be a full game for £10

If this were a full game you would be spending more then £10 and it being an XBLA you get to try it before you buy it and you have all the time in the world to decide.

@unfettered

I know 250 MB sounds small but in reality you can fit an awful lot in such a tiny amount of space. Just look at Roboblitz and that game is only 50 MB.

Well you don't have to buy it. Just be glad that we are getting some more good games for the arcade. After bomberman comes out I don't know what will be next.

This game is rubbish, unless of course they've changed it alot since the PC version. That was rubbish.

^^ I haven't played it myself Plumb, but I'm just guessing this is why.

Yeah, I'm totally enlightened now.
Guess I'll have to go to another site for real impressions.

Don't take my word for it, apparently I'm wrong. I did only play the demo, and it was rubbish, but they seemed to like the full game. I guess I passed judgement to early.

About the game

    Moonwalker This doesn't look exactly bad to me: [url] (6 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Or well... now I'm confused, lol. Probably not every single game at native 4K. Not sure if MS ever claimed that, didn't they say only their own titles? (14 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker surprised if it's going to be this and of course the remaining missing info. However after all the "true 4K" comments by them it would be pretty stupid if it won't do it after all. (17 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yeah but honestly... are you surprised? Sure it sucks that Jaguar will likely be in it, but those Zen rumors were too good to be true. Sure it's a doc from right after E3, but wouldn't be (18 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: most CPU bound games are large scale multiplayer titles in my experience. There's a reason I'm still using a desktop CPU from 2011. (18 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: So, it will be only slightly faster than PS4 Pro, as the CPU is the bottleneck again. (27 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX He doesn't like first person games as some kind of near-blanket rule. (1 Hour ago)
