This week on the GoGCast, we dive into the world of playtests with Marie Roy, Coordinator for Ubisoft Montreal’s User Research Lab. Playtests are how studios evaluate how users interact with a game. Marie shares with us the mission of Ubisoft’s User Research Lab, gives us insight into how the studio tests their games, explains the difference between quality assurance and user playtesting, how gamers can get involved and more.

If you would like to participate in Ubisoft’s playtests, you can register at All types of gamers are needed and welcomed!
