2w ago - Ubisoft Annecy Community Developer Valentin Pasquier-Desvignes announced news today on The Flying Dutchman: Assassin's Creed IV's Second Multiplayer Event.
Below are the details, to quote: Since our first Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer event, Under Control, we've seen the AC4 community continue to grow. So we've got a new one: The Flying Dutchman!
Starting this Friday, 11/29 and going through Sunday, 12/1, assassins across the community will compete to capture Artifacts and bring them back to their base in a special Artifact Assault mode (we've got the breakdown on the specific rules below).
During the duration of the event, you'll be provided with objectives to complete, and each of these objectives will unlock exclusive content.
In this event, Artifact Assault mode will deactivate melee kills, so your only way to kill will be to take aim with the deadly pistol. Team play is mandatory to deliver the artifact to your base, so strategize to support your carrier using Sabotage, and prevent your enemies from using their ranged Pistol attacks!
In addition to the new mode, you'll have specific objectives with their own rewards to challenge yourself with. Some are individual goals, and others are a wider community goal; check out the breakdown below:...

87w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has shared a new Ride, Die, and Fly Starhawk vehicle trailer for PlayStation 3 fans today!
To quote: With just over a month until our May 8th release, the time to fully experience the virtual glory that is Starhawk is rapidly approaching.
We figured what better way to raise the excitement level than to give you a first-hand look at some of the different vehicle options you'll have at your disposal when this innovative third-person shooter hits stores next month.
We've said from the very beginning that Starhawk will have a broad range of intense air, ground, and vehicular combat so I think our new Ride, Die, and Fly trailer will certainly drive that point home.
First up is the Sidewinder JetBike - basically a quick-strike hoverbike that's very fast, perfect for crazy jumps and a lot of fun to drive.
Next, the Razorback, which is similar to a buggy vehicle, a sturdy 4x4 that carries up to three players and comes with a mounted gun on the back, perfect for picking off Outcast scum in a hurry.
The Ox Heavy Tank is one of my favorites. The name basically says it all, right? It's a burly vehicle that's great for bombarding bases. It's...
160w ago - Today Who's That Flying Writer/Producer Jim Griffiths has shared a video trailer and let us know that the PlayStation Minis title will be hitting PSN tomorrow for the PS3 and PSP consoles.
To quote: We're very, very pleased to announce that our second minis game, "Who's That Flying?!" goes live tomorrow on the PlayStation Store!
With "Who's That Flying?!", we've combined side-scrolling shooting action with elements of tower defence and even some up-close and personal quick-time events for the super-dramatic moments!
What that means is that the character you control, the "Guardian of Earth" is pretty much invulnerable, blasting enemies apart and grappling giant bosses with ease - but the cities you are defending are hugely vulnerable. So your goal is not to survive, but rather to stop too many enemies getting past you and destroying your cities.
Check out the all-new, full trailer for the game!
The story starts out with the Guardian of Earth on trial for allowing the invasion to take place; each level is played out as a flashback as you submit your version of events... in the most dramatic way possible!
The game will become available today on the PS3 and PSP worldwide for the price...

To quote: We have another two minis out this week for fans of all creatures great and small.
Fly Fu is a side-scrolling beat-'em-up game with characters designed from photographs of dead insects mixed with doodle art.
Your girlfriend, Kate Moth, a fluffy moth was kidnapped by evil spiders and dragged away to the suburb. But do not fear as you are not a common housefly, but one that is trained to fight. Being a Kung-Fu master, only you can save your love from the claws of the evil insects.

• Fight your way through bees, wasps, lady bugs and more than 20 different insects.
Get really mad at insects bugging around and GO BERSERK!
Arm yourself with matchsticks and needle-pins to gain more fist power.
Put your endurance to the test in survival mode.
