Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy.
The first innovation that THE CREW brings to the action-driving genre is a massive open-world filled with activities, gigantic in scope, which delivers an unprecedented level of gameplay variety. The entire USA is your driving playground, covering thousands of square miles, from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit.
Since its stunning debut at E3 2012, Watch Dogs has been one of the most anticipated games for the next-gen consoles. An achingly pretty example of what the new consoles could create, the trailer depicted a fully realised Chicago with rain, steam and lighting all recreated in gorgeous, crisp detail.
In Watch_Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) - and it controls almost every piece of the city's technology and holds key information on all of the city's residents.

At a recent visit to Abstergo Entertainment to look at Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag I had the opportunity to talk all things AC4 with Jean-Sebastien Decant and Darby McDevitt from Ubisoft.
Ubisoft will soon be releasing Rocksmith 2014, I had the opportunity to sit down with Paul Cross who is the Creative Director to talk Rocksmith, guitars and Miley Cyrus.
The build of the game I got to play was alpha, although it was pretty slick and I didn't experience any issues. Ubisoft tell me that there will be a closed beta coming up later in the year before the game gets a final release. Personally I can't wait as it was a lot of fun.
It's classic Assassin's Creed III gameplay - going from mission to mission, fighting, killing, rescuing and getting that bit closer to the Mad King. This whole part is set in the Frontier, so will seem familiar, but different.
A lot of people really loved, and still love Guitar Hero, and for those people who would like to take their guitar playing to the next level, or rather learn how to play the guitar for real, then Rocksmith is certainly something that could help with that.
