Ubisoft's canceled 1666 resurfaces as trademark

Patrice Désilets was the creative director of Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft's cash cow from which all its games seem to be modeled (endlessly reproducable open-world systems from now until end, amen). He left the company in 2010 and went...

You can (maybe) dress up as an Assassin or Sam Fisher in The Division now

You can’t throw a stick around here lately without hitting news about The Division, I know, but given this might be shinier news rather than the crap about characters being wiped and that maddeningly restrictive trade scheme, what the...

You can play Assassin's Creed, Dark Void, and GRID 2 on Xbox One

Hah, remember Dark Void? It was only six years ago! There was a point pre-release where the Airtight-developed, Capcom-published third-person shooter seemed like it might be cool (it had a jetpack!), but it ended up falling below expectatio...

The Last Maharaja review
With Ubisoft's confirmation that it won't be developing a core Assassin's Creed game in 2016, we're left with something of a lull. Sure, this year still has India, Russia, Initiates, and a movie, but that Assassin's Cree...   read

Ubisoft confirms there won't be a new Assassin's Creed game this year

The Assassin's Creed movie has wrapped, is actually happening

Justin Kurzel, Michael Fassbender, and Marion Cotillard's (the Macbeth Trinity) Assassin's Creed movie has wrapped, as of yesterday. Now the film enters post-production as it gears up for its December 21, 2016 release date. For some reason ...

 
Assassin's Creed review
When the Chronicles series was announced, my response was mixed. I mean, it's cool that we're getting to see new settings outside of the usual suspect after all, but by that same token, I'd rather see those new areas in a fully-fledged 3D game. These Prince of Persia inspired 2.5D gaidens (including last year's China) are the next best thing though, albeit with some provisos.   read
