UNO Meets Assassin's Creed Valhalla In Game-Changing DLC

On April 7, UNO launched its Valhalla DLC, inspired by the eponymous Assassin's Creed game. In the expansion, UNO incorporates a board into its gameplay for the first time in its history, as players have to use special themed cards to explore, collect cargo, and battle their opponents.

Trackmania Spring Campaign Has Sprung

On April 1, Trackmania released its Spring Campaign, introducing 25 new tracks to the racing game and bringing the total track count to 175. Competitors can log in and race, ranking up with every win and earning in-game trophies. The Trackmania Grand League Spring 2022 esports event is already underway, with 16 of the best Trackmania players competing for first place. The Final is set to take place Sunday, April 17.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint

[UN] [Multiple Titles] - Weekly News Recap 4.8.22 - Ghost Recon Breakpoint

After two years and more than 11 patch notes and supporting several other initiatives, the Ghost Recon Breakpoint team announced Tuesday that the most recent update would be the game’s last piece of new content. In November last year, Ghost Recon Breakpoint added a new Operation Motherland mode as well as new items for players; more recently, the Plant a Tree project enabled players to plant a tree seed in-game, and for every seed planted, Ubisoft donated to Ecologi, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting climate change. Ubisoft will continue to maintain the servers for Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Ghost Recon Wildlands, so players can still enjoy the games in solo or co-op.

Game Updates

Rainbow Six Siege launched its Year 7 Season 1.2 Designer's Notes on April 5, detailing Demon Veil's mid-season balancing update. This update brings significant changes to several of the game's Operators, and improved gameplay through bug fixes. Some of the changes are highlighted below; read the full patch notes here.

  • Bandit can deploy multiple batteries on the same reinforcement or gadget
  • Operators can now carry two claymores
  • Blackbeard now has a claymore, but lost breaching charges
  • Gridlock now has four Trax cannisters, increased from three
  • Smoke is now vulnerable to his own toxic gas
