Amazon UK has leaked a new bundle of Xbox Live Arcade titles that were published by Ubisoft, including Beyond Good & Evil HD, Outland and From Dust. The bundleware will cost £17.99 and be released on the 22nd September.
Online videogame retailer Play.com may have spoiled an unannounced bundle featuring critically praised UbiSoft titles From Dust, Beyond Good and Evil HD, and Outland for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. All three games were released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network last year.
UbiSoft digital publishing manager Thomas Paincon revealed in an interview that the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network versions of From Dust sold over 500K units, as the manager discussed UbiSoft's preference of releasing games on digital platforms to retail releases.
Indie videogame designer Eric Chahi, creator of From Dust, has dished about his own take on the god game simulator and how Lionhead's Peter Molyneux gave it a "true compliment."
The Populous creator said From Dust was the "first god game he's played," referring to its fully morphable world. It was "hard work" and there are no sequel plans in motion.
