Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game — Complete Edition coming in early 2021

Ubisoft revealed the official release date for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game — Complete Edition, which will now launch on January 14. The beat-’em-up title was originally slated for a “holiday 2020” release.

First revealed at a recent Ubisoft Forward stream, the game is a rerelease of the cult classic Scott Pilgrim game, which has been unavailable to players for six years. The game was originally delisted from Xbox and PlayStation marketplaces in 2014 due to licensing issues.

Fans can grab the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia. It will also be playable on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Ubisoft has yet to reveal pricing for the title or which PC marketplaces will carry it other than its own.

The complete version features the original game and its two DLCs, which add Knives Chau and Wallace Wells to the game as playable characters.

Multiplayer is the main emphasis of the rerelease, according to Ubisoft’s latest blog post. The game features four-player drop-in co-op for its main campaign, both locally and online. The package includes competitive modes from the original game such as Dodgeball and Battle Royale, as well as a co-op boss rush and survival horror modes.

The slight release date tweak is another in a long line of delays for Ubisoft this year. The company recently delayed Far Cry 6 and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Quarantine in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. More recently, the studio delayed Watch Dogs: Legion’s upcoming online mode to 2021 to focus on bug fixes. The new Scott Pilgrim release date puts it just ahead of Ubisoft’s upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake, which launches January 21.

Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay shows off absolutely disgusting finishers
Key art for Mortal Kombat 1 shows its logo and Liu Kang.

Mortal Kombat 1 gameplay was finally shown in detail at Summer Games Fest following its initial reveal in May, and it's already looking like the most cinematic entry to date. Classic characters like Sub Zero and Scorpion are back in their full glory, and the finishing moves have never been quite as visceral or engrossing -- with "gross" being the keyword to focus on if you're particularly sensitive to watching characters sawed apart limb from limb.

Mortal Kombat series co-creator Ed Boon took to the stage shortly after the gameplay presentation to describe some of the new gameplay elements in a quick interview with Summer Games Fest host Geoff Keighley, noting that this entry represents a series reboot that is designed to introduce a new spin on classic Mortal Kombat lore.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will make you forget about The Sands of Time remake
A character reached out to grab a shard in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown.

Ubisoft confirmed Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown at the 2023 Summer Game Fest kickoff stream with a trailer showing its gameplay and story. The trailer showcased the fast-paced, real-time combat that the series is known for in its action-packed footage. It also introduces a sword-slinging protagonist and his journey through Ubisoft's latest version of its Persian setting.

We didn't learn too much about The Lost Crown's story in the trailer. However, based on the dialogue bits in the cutscenes, we know it focuses on a group of mercenaries and their mission to rescue the prince of the kingdom from cursed enemies who have somehow kidnapped him. Expect a mix of melee-based and magical fights, and plenty of parkour stunts like vaulting through sandstone plazas and lush forests.
