PSA: Steep’s Free Alaska DLC Has Been Delayed But Here’s a New Teaser

[embedded content] If you weren’t able to download Steep‘s free Alaska DLC yesterday or were planning to do so this weekend, then you might want to note that Ubisoft has delayed the content by two weeks. A very brief announcement was posted on Ubisoft’s blog this past Thursday but it looks like it got buried under the avalanche (no pun intended) of financial reports, betas, and updates on other major releases. The developer wrote: Our teams are always committed to bringing the best experience possible to all players. With this in mind, we are postponing the launch of our Alaska free game update to Feb 24th on PS4, Xbox One and PC. In the meantime, you can watch a new teaser for the update above. Ubisoft recently said that Steep, which released in December 2016, performed “slightly” higher than the company’s expectations. For more on the game, check out our previous coverage.

Ubisoft Delays South Park: The Fractured But Whole Again, Says Steep Exceeded Expectations

Previously delayed from December 2016 to Q1 2017, South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been delayed again and is now releasing in Fiscal Year 2017 – 2018, which runs from April 2017 to March 2018. The news comes from Ubisoft’s financial report for the quarter ending December 31, 2016, where they also said Watch Dogs 2’s launch was “not as dynamic as expected, but momentum now positive.” Steep, meanwhile, had a “slightly higher-than-expected performance.” Elsewhere in the report, Ubisoft said Rainbow Six Siege has 15 million registered players and record Daily Active Users, The Division’s number of Daily Active Users is up 152% since October 24, and the Assassin’s Creed movie is over $213 million worldwide, making it the seventh most successful video game adaptation. Sales for Ubisoft’s third quarter were down 5.7% year-on-year to €529.9 million ($567 million USD), but sales for the first nine months of this fiscal year are up 5.5% to €811.3 million ($868 million USD). Because of the delay to South Park, Ubisoft expects total sales for this fiscal year to drop from around €1.67 billion to €1.5 billion. PlayStation 4 was by far Ubisoft’s biggest platform, with 46% of sales coming through Sony’s console. Xbox One was at 26%, with PC at 13%, and PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, READ…

Games, Franchises, and Experiences We Want in VR

Resident Evil 7 is proving to be quite the virtual reality masterpiece, with 10% of registered players across all platforms choosing to play in PlayStation VR. While playing for our review, I played for eight hours straight in VR, happy that virtual reality is getting longer triple-A experiences. As I was playing, I couldn’t help but think what the success of Resident Evil 7 could be paving the way for in the future of VR. In fact, certain segments within the game sparked ideas for what I wanted to see, setting off the series of ideas you see below. Don’t worry, it’s not just a bunch of horror games I want adapted into VR, though those dark experiences do make up their fair share of the list. We’ve also added some games that are visual masterpieces, as well as experiences that are improved through the intimate immersion of PlayStation VR. With such a fascinating platform, I’m hoping that developers take the initiative to take some risks and continue to develop unique experiences for PlayStation VR. If any developer wants to skim off the ideas we have below, fell free. We here at PlayStation LifeStyle think these would make for stellar READ…
