If you can’t upgrade your PS4 copy of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Watch Dogs Legion to the PS5 version, you’re not alone.

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion both support free next-gen upgrades, allowing owners of a PS4 copy to get the enhanced version on PS5 completely free.

This has always been the case, across both console platforms. However, many players are simply unable to claim their free upgrades. The free upgrade option does not show up for affected players, and they instead see the game’s normal price.

The issue, for some reason, appears to seemingly only affect European players who own the disc version. Reports of the problem – affecting both Valhalla, and Legion – became harder to ignore towards the end of last week as more players got their hands on PS5.

Ubisoft has acknowledged the problem, and shared with VG247 a few steps that … Read the rest

Assetto Corsa Competizione has been on quite the journey since launch earlier this year and rest assured, we’re far from done! The development team have been working behind the scenes to bring all new content to the sim racing world and I’m here today to tell you more on what’s to come.

An Intro for Rookie Racers

If you’re new to the title, let me fill you in on some things to know. Assetto Corsa Competizione is the Official GT World Challenge game and features iconic tracks such as Silverstone, Monza, Hungaroring, and Spa-Francorchamps. To ensure each track offers the most realistic experience possible, each circuit has been carefully reproduced using Laser Scan technology, in GT cars that have been developed in close collaboration with manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini and McLaren.

Alongside the base game, the team have been working on multiple DLC expansions, including the GT4 Read the rest

Rick and Morty are no strangers to video games. They play the life simulator Roy in an episode of the show on Adult Swim, and they have even starred in their own VR experience (though I didn’t love it). But the dimension-hopping duo’s latest contribution to the gaming industry is a new ad for the PlayStation 5.

Rick and Morty bring their signature brand of humor to the spot, making it clear multiple times that they are only saying what they’ve been paid to say. Even so, it’s still an entertaining little bit for fans of the show to enjoy. Plus, the irreverent tone is a fun change from other PS5 commercials we’ve seen so far. See the ad in the tweet below:

Bugsnax developer Young Horses has rolled out a new update for the PS4 and PS5 game that fixes a slew of the game’s most frustrating bugs.

Version 1.04.000 has been pushed out to Bugsnax on PS4 and PS5, and the latest update for the game takes aim at some of the most game-breaking and progression-halting bugs that have affected players since launch.

The newest update, which weighs in at about 1GB on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, introduces a lot of fixes that make mission progression a little bit easier for players that have run into problems in the game.

Perhaps the most notable updates include changes that prevent the game permanently breaking progression if you leave a Boss Bugsnak encounter, and a few tweaks that mean quest-relevant creatures now respawn more frequently if none are detected in the corresponding area.

Also, a fix to “character eyelid behavior while sleeping” … Read the rest

For many, this is the most crucial of the next generation cross-platform comparisons. The new Assassin’s Creed is a big game, cross-gen in nature for sure, but apparently built with the new wave of machines at least partly in mind. Valhalla also represents a generational shift for the franchise as this is the first time a new series entry arrives on consoles with a 60fps target – on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at least, delivered with varying levels of success. Ubisoft Montreal aims for complete platform parity between Sony and Microsoft’s premium consoles, but the results when they do diverge are perhaps unexpected.

Anvil Next gets a revamp, but there is the sense that much of Valhalla’s shift in aesthetic comes from the art side. In fairness, this can tap into the engine’s strengths: a sizeable enough proportion of the rendering budget is spent on the volumetric clouds … Read the rest
