Another week – another handful of news. Believe it or not, but just before starting writing this week’s news collection, I though I had more than enough to surprise you with as much as possible but I was wrong. In fact, just a few hours ago my world has changed forever and only thanks to less than 2 minutes on YouTube. But previews are made for intrigues and not for giving out the best secrets one has. So, let’s get it started with the new Freshgamer News Weekly. And mark my word – they will blow your mind.
Freshgamer News: Black Friday on Steam
Technically, Black Friday game sale has started not on Steam only but as far as Steam is the main source of getting all the good stuff, it definitely makes a big difference for all of us. Right this very moment it has more than 5000 games on sale which means that you either have to have a lot of money on your bank account or you should concentrate on the good stuff only. I can hardly imagine how to survive this event as far as it should last until December 2. Also, just 17 days after Black Friday ends, you will be offered to take part in a Christmas sale that, of course, is going to be even greater. As for now, we would recommend you to start browsing Steam for hot deals and then slowly move to the rest gaming platforms like Origin and Uplay. If you feel yourself lost and have no idea on how to spend your money best, try using Cheap Shark for picking up the best deals. Also, in case you need a short guidance – our article on how to save on Steam games should help you out a lot.
Freshgamer News: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens First Trailer
When I was watching this trailer for the first time, I was literary screaming like a little girl. Guys, this is actually happening, who would thought that after so many years we would see the amazing saga going forward. So far it is hard to tell about the plot and heroes that will appear in the new Star Wars movie but mark my words – this is going to be great. From what I know already, there are going to be clones and Millennium Falcon in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and that is something to be excited about. We attached the trailer a bit lower in the post so go ahead and press the play button. We know you’ve been waiting for this for quite a while.

Freshgamer News: Ubisoft Will Give You a Free Game to Apologize for AS Unity
Even though I am still excited about Assassin’s Creed Unity, it looks like the number of unhappy gamers has reached it’s possible maximum and now Ubisoft is officially obliged to do something in order to solve the issue. We won’t dive into details, but despite making a truly incredible product, Ubisoft released a product that was not ready to see this world for at least another month. After all that mass and approved anger, Ubisoft has finally apologized for all the inconveniences they caused for gamers on all platforms and instead of leaving things behind, they actually made a good thing. So, if you already purchased Assassin’s Creed Unity, you will received the “Fallen Kings” DLC for free. But, if you got yourself Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass, as a valuable apology you will be offered to choose one of those games and, of course, will get it for free. The list of the games sounds like this: The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends or Just Dance 2015. Cool, right? On the top of that Season Pass owners will also receive 2.5D platformer Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China that was supposed to be a part of Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass Unity. At the same time Ubisoft made a promise to release the third patch (already) for Assassin’s Creed Unity that should solve more than 300! errors in the game. Can’t wait to see that ASAP.
Freshgamer News: Sticky Gloves to Climb High Buildings
Inspired by numerous computer games and sci-fi movies, Stanford university research group created a working prototype of sticky gloves, that will allow you to climb various surfaces vertically with no ropes or elevators. If you remember some of Call of Duty Games or Mission impossible IV, you will definitely recognize the idea and the working principle. This prototype became possible thanks to serious research on gecko’s ability to climb walls. It appears that with some decent effort you can do crazy things and give human the power to rule the vertical line. Sure, it is very unlikely to witness sticky gloves being released for masses in the closest future but taking into consideration the great opportunity to have one someday somehow can’t but make the heart beat faster.
That was all for this week from Freshgamer news. I do hope you liked everything mentioned in this post. After all, news about the new Star Wars movie do not appear on the web every single day, not to talk about Black Friday Steam sales that also happen not that often. Stay tuned for something fresh and new coming up the next week.
