Nicolas Hunsinger, Ubisoft’s director of corporate environmental sustainability, gives an update on Ubisoft’s Play Green initiative, currently in its second year. Play Green has two goals: to reduce the company’s carbon footprint, and to act as a positive influence among our teams and players about environmental protection. In this update, Hunsinger details how Ubisoft has lowered its carbon footprint per employee in the past year, and how the company will continue that trajectory in the future. He also describes environmental in-game activations that took place in Ubisoft titles like Anno 1800, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Hungry Shark, Riders Republic, and more.

Ubisoft+ Spotlight – Watch Dogs: Legion
(Editorial note: This is a series of quick weekly highlights written by our News team writers that feature games available with a Ubisoft+ subscription. We hope you’ll enjoy reminiscing with us, or perhaps discover something new.)
Chastity Vicencio, Editorial Communications Manager: Watch Dogs Legion takes you to near-future London where you are tasked with rebuilding DedSec after bombings caused by terrorist entity Zero Day force the city into an authoritarian police state under the boot of private military company called Albion. London's authorities wrongly accuse DedSec of the crimes, while actual criminals Clan Kelley rule the city's underground. To take on Zero Day, Albion, and Clan Kelley, you'll need to recruit allies by playing as anyone you encounter in the open world. Each person you meet has their own set of skills, items, and talents. Aside from the single-player storyline, a major highlight of playing the Ultimate Edition on Ubisoft+ is getting access to the Bloodline expansion, a satisfying prequel storyline where you play as Aiden Pearce from Watch Dogs and Wrench from Watch Dogs 2. You'll also get access to new heroes including Mina, who has mind-control abilities, and Darcy, a member of the Assassin Order. Watch Dogs: Legion is available through a Ubisoft+ subscription, or for purchase at the Ubisoft Store.
