Ubisoft is giving away two games for keeps this month

Ubisoft is giving away two games for keeps this month

In a recent post on the Assassin's Creed website, Ubisoft announced Nightmare mode, a new difficulty option that will throw "more resilient. and more dangerous" enemies at the player. The official patch notes explain that enemies will be "more resilient to damages and more unsafe".

One, called Here Comes a New Challenger, will introduce the new Horde mode to the game.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft had discontinued online multiplayer servers for the game since December 15, 2015, but a group of players have created a new service that works with the game client. If you noticed news today, you've already seen that you can now grab World in Conflict along with its DLC Soviet Assault.

Code.org raises $12M to help more kids learn computer science
Several cities - including Austin, Boston, Houston and Los Angeles - said they would offer classes in every high school. McCarthy said the Hour of Code is when students go online and learn how to code on a website while doing activities.

The update is the third of the Trials of the Gods, placing the main character Bayek in a battle against three Egyptian deities. Anubis and Sobek were in November, and the final fight is against Sekhmet, the warrior goddess.

Okay, I realize you might be entirely keen on adding Ubisoft's long-maligned digital distribution service to your regular rotation of game clients, but at least hear 'em out.

The Gladiator Items Pack is coming on December 12 with some gladiator gear for Bayer, while the Wacky Items Pack is a flawless fit for the game's bath towel costume. We'll circle back with more details when they become available.
