Assassins Creed

Assassin's Creed Unity is a bit of a train wreck at the moment. The Parisian playground is plagued with a myriad of glitches, most of which aren't as fun or hilarious as the nightmare fuel pictured above. Understandably, many...
Kyle sent me this compilation of Assassin's Creed Unity glitches and, six minutes later, I'm calling it: I've spent more time watching these games mess up than I have playing them. When they screw up, they tend to do so spectacularly. Best glitch happens at 4:26.
Or, maybe this guy's not a glitch. Maybe he's an assassin sent with a darker purpose. Maybe he's supposed to infiltrate your nightmares and make sure you never sleep soundly again. Kudos to you, Assassin Brotherhood; you've found a way to inflict a punishment more terrifying than death.
Assassin's Creed IV was a turning point for the series. While a lot of fans were disappointed by the pointless Revelations and the polarizing Assassin's Creed III, Black Flag delivered everything you could possibly ...
It sure seems like Conan O'Brien's pumping out a fair number of Clueless Gamer segments lately. I suppose that's what happens in the midst of the madness of the holiday release season and publishers trip over themselves to h...
Last week, Ubisoft pulled its upcoming games--F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew--from Steam. This allowed me to roll with a headline, "Going hard in the Uplaynt," a play on "going hard in the paint" and ...
[Update: It's right here!] At Destructoid, we believe that transparency in consumer advocacy is of the utmost importance. When a review isn't going to be timely, we like to keep everyone apprised of the situation. We ma...
Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid. Those in the UK are probably keenly aware of the fact, but Assassin's Creed Unity is no longer available fo...
Ubisoft's biggest three upcoming releases, F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew have been pulled from Steam, the place where a lot of people buy and play their PC games.  PCGamesN got this statement from Ub...
Limited edition shaving gels. That's where we've progressed as a society. For a "limited time" you can get a can of Edge shaving gel at your local retailer and unlock special items for Assassin's Creed: Unity. All in all, you...
Well, this changes things up. Assassin's Creed Unity is going where no ancestral assassin has gone before -- the future. This trailer shows the Animus simulation collapsing, forcing the protagonist -- still acting and d...
Do you have delusions of grandeur, the likes of which lead you to fancy yourself a great assassin among the likes of Ezio Auditore da Firenze or Arno Dorian? A mere $60 will put you significantly closer to assassin authentic...
The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution.
Microsoft's current strategy for selling as many Xbox Ones as it possibly can is largely to offer a bundle for almost every major release. Sunset Overdrive, Madden, Call of Duty -- the list goes on and on. Now, Assassin'...
Every major videogame these days is accompanied by a seemingly endless barrage of trailers prior to release. That's just how things work now. A lot of it is little more than filler to keep the audience constantly reminded th...
It's been four years since Assassin's Creed became an annual fixture. Every year, like clockwork, Ubisoft releases a brand new, fully developed title in the AC series. But things have changed slightly this year. In a surprisi...
The Paris depicted in Assassin's Creed Unity is shaping up to be a juggernaut among videogame cities. Larger than all other Assassin's Creed locales to date and significantly more detailed, the development team is t...
Modern-day Paris is vastly different than the city that served as the backdrop to one of the most famous uprisings in history: the French Revolution. Some of the greatest locales of the revolution are now gone -- either on th...
Ubisoft demoed more than 20 minutes of Assassin's Creed Rogue gameplay at EGX this past weekend, and that's enough to notice the obvious likenesses to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The naval fights look largely simil...
This is pretty much just kittens. But they're so cute! 
Ubisoft's trying something new with its approach to Assassin's Creed Unity -- customization. For the first time ever, there's a progression system that lets you upgrade Arno in whatever way best fits your style. The fou...
Ubisoft has unveiled the current DLC plans for Assassin's Creed Unity by way of their Season Pass, and it's a doozy. Firstly, you'll be getting a new story campaign that takes place after Unity. It deals with a set of un...
Major League Baseball's San Francisco Giants hosted the organization's first-ever "Video Gamer Night" Wednesday ahead of a game with the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. Admission to the special event at AT&T Park came with...
As if Ubisoft weren't unleashing enough Assassin's Creed on the world this fall with Unity and Rogue slated for November, it has one more trick up its sleeve to rope in some players with less familiarity of the...
Just three days ago we got some new screens for the upcoming Assassin's Creed Rogue, but it seems like Ubisoft is intent on releasing a slow trickle of media leading up to its November 11 release. Today, we have a video deta...
If you have ever wanted to aim an old timey rifle, stand on a ship and talk to a guy in a funny hat, or stare longingly at a vessel not far off shore, then you are in luck, because all three of those exciting endeavors are de...
Ubisoft's upcoming current-generation Assassin's Creed game, Unity, has been delayed a couple of weeks to November 11 in the US and November 13 in Europe. "Now that the team has a near-finished game, those extra two weeks wil...
Ubisoft actually has a decent history when it comes to putting Assassin's Creed games on iOS. Pirates wasn't bad, and neither was Rearmed. But this week's iOS release doesn't sound all that enticing, as it combines ...
Ubisoft seemingly takes the same approach to all of its PAX showings -- theater presentations of Assassin's Creed, and playable demos of its other upcoming games. PAX Prime 2014 in Seattle next week is no different, except fo...
From the makers of Super Mario Warfare and all those wonderful cosplay montages comes Assassin's Creed: AC/BC. What if the Assassin's series starred cavemen from the Stone Age? That's what Beat Down Boogie wanted to find out.  Oh of course there's DLC. 
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has spoken with Game Informer about what Wii U owners can expect to see from the company, and it's going to be more family-oriented games. Those sell well enough with that audience, while, unsurpris...
With Assassin's Creed Unity, Ubisoft is promising missions that feature multiple ways to complete a given objective. Hamza talked about this "black box" design in his recent preview, and here's a look at one of the ways an e...
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a huge game. Like, you could easily sink 100 hours into that whole experience before getting 100 percent completion. So Assassin's Creed Rogue may or may not be quite the game for you. It ...
Okay, so technically there's three big changes that everyone will be excited about, the third being the whole two- to four-player cooperative experience in Assassin's Creed Unity. Personally I'm not all that looking forward t...
Assassin's Creed Rogue may have only been officially announced for an entire day now, but Ubisoft already has plans to let fans try it out in the very near future. If you happen to be at gamescom in Cologne, Germany next...
Rumors have been floating around since March about Ubisoft's plans to release two Assassin's Creed titles this year -- one for current consoles and one for legacy consoles. Originally codenamed Comet, Ubisoft formally reveal...
Early marketing materials for Assassin's Creed Unity have largely included guillotines, headless bodies, and severed heads on pikes. It makes sense; the clash of classes that was the French Revolution was an awfully bloo...
Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. 
Ubisoft released a new and highly dramatic CG trailer for Assassin's Creed Unity, and it introduces a new character to the game's cast. Arno Dorian, Unity's protagonist, sprints across Paris rooftops in order to save a young...
Let's face it -- you're not a trained parkour expert. (Apologies if you are!) But, if you're attending San Diego Comic-Con next week, Ubisoft's giving you the opportunity to pretend like you know what you're doing when it co...
