Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China gives the series a fresh perspective

It's not often we see a major player in the big leagues of yearly releases reinvent itself in a more modest and distinct way. With Assassin's Creed titles expected every year, it's been a bit of a challenge for Ubisoft to kee...

Four things I loved about playing Assassin's Creed: Rogue

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...

Paris will be the true star of Assassin's Creed Unity

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...

Assassin's Creed Rogue gives you more open ocean goodness

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 ...

Assassin's Creed Unity's two big changes that I'm excited for

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 Unity captures the liveliness of revolutionary Paris

Ubisoft took a bold step in opting to release Assassin's Creed Unity exclusively on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. With a fragmented userbase on consoles, publishers are mostly taking the predictable approach of launching games ...

The open ocean makes Assassin's Creed feel fresh again

I recently got to play a solid few hours of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and was able to do whatever I wanted, outside of the select core missions Ubisoft wanted to specifically show off. There was a lot to do, but I wante...

Preview: Assassin's Creed III Liberation is the real deal
by Bob Muir

As far as I'm concerned, there hasn't really been a portable Assassin's Creed worth playing. Despite the release of three story-based handheld games -- only one less than the console releases -- they have contributed nothing of value to the franchise's story or characters. So when news broke of a new installment for Vita, it was perfectly reasonable to have doubts. This is especially true since the promise of a console style had been made before with the PSP's Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines.

But the Vita is no PSP, and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation is a new chance to make a quality Assassin's Creed game for handhelds. Perhaps in an effort to distinguish itself from past spin-offs based on console characters, Liberation features a new female protagonist who lived in the same period as Assassin's Creed III's Conner. And just like ACIII, it's looking fantastic.

E3: Blending in with Bostonians in Assassin's Creed III photo
E3: Blending in with Bostonians in Assassin's Creed III
by Ryan Perez

Even though some other games piqued my interest at this year’s E3 (*cough* Watch Dogs), I must shamelessly admit that I was ultimately excited about Assassin’s Creed III more than anything. I even whimpered and squealed like a third-grade girl when they presented it at the Ubisoft conference.

So it was kind of a bummer that I wasn’t originally slated to preview it. However, the dork gods smiled upon me, and I got to fill in for the person originally booked. I must say that I was very, very satisfied.

This time around, instead of naval battles and traversing the canopy of the North American wilderness, I got the chance to view Connor’s acrobatic dance atop the masonry of 18th-century Boston. What a fantastic sight it was, because, along his journey to resurrect the long-dormant Brotherhood, Connor Kenway has learned a few new tricks.

E3: Blowin' up Brits in Assassin's Creed III
by Dale North

I hated American history class in school, but I would have probably enjoyed it if Connor, Assassin's Creed III's protagonist, showed up in more of the stories and blew up more Brits. He's half-English, half-Native American and all kinds of pissed off, which makes for some interesting stuff already. But how his assassin story intertwines with the American Revolution is way more interesting than dudes with triangle hats topping curly white hair.

The announcement that Assassin's Creed III would be set around the American Revolution pretty much guaranteed that I was going to purchase it upon release. I've been praying for them to get there for three games now and I'm absolutely thrilled to see the period represented in a major videogame, let alone one of my favorite series in recent years.

On the heels of a recent press event in which Ubisoft revealed new details about the title, I have even more reason to be excited.

Assassin's Creed's Ezio a 'natural fit' for Soulcalibur V photo
Assassin's Creed's Ezio a 'natural fit' for Soulcalibur V
by Wesley Ruscher

Let the official announcement commence: Ezio Auditore da Firenze, of Assassin’s Creed fame, is Soulcalibur V’s special guest character. Some of you may have already seen a screen that was leaked -- thanks to (I can only assume) a fellow “journalist” of the highest, moralistic integrity -- but it didn't convey just how well the master assassin fits into the world of Soulcalibur that a good old-fashioned written preview can do.

I’ll save my diatribe on embargoes and videogame journalism for a later date, because frankly I’d rather share my recent hands-on time with Ezio in Soulcalibur V. With that said, now that the proverbial cat is officially out of the bag, the question I’m sure many have been wondering can finally be answered: How does Ezio stack up amongst Soulcalibur's cast of eclectic characters?

Three hours with Assassin's Creed: Revelations photo
Three hours with Assassin's Creed: Revelations
by Wesley Ruscher

Ezio Auditore da Firenze is older, wiser, and most importantly, a man on a mission. From his inception as an assassin in Assassin's Creed II to his leadership over his comrades in Brotherhood, we've watched him grow from a reckless youth to a speckled gray-bearded veteran of the hidden blade. His journeys have brought him through many hardships that he frankly never asked for, but he has always unselfishly stepped up to the challenge.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the final chapter in the Ezio trilogy, sees the iconic Italian embark on a quest for clarity. If you've seen the E3 cinematic then you know his journey begins in Masyaf, the home of AC 1 protagonist Altair. The mountain city, as well as the legendary first assassin, hold the key to Ezio's purpose in the grand scheme of this video game saga.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations -- which will finally end Ezio's story arc -- is almost upon us. Before we close the chapter on him, however, we'll have the chance to see how Ubisoft has further refined the series' gameplay after Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Ubisoft showed more of the combat mechanics at gamescom and delved into exactly how Altair's missions actually fit into the world of Revelations.

So I'm not into the Assassin's Creed series. Like at all. Hollie Bennett loves the series though so we thought it would be a good idea for me to interview her as she played Assassin's Creed: Revelation's multiplayer mode. The idea was that maybe she could convince me to like the series. 

In actuality, the video just sees me being a giant dick to Hollie the whole time as she tries to be all serious and enjoy what she's doing. Videogames!

GC 10: Assassins Creed: Brotherhood single-player preview

The renaissance was a time of great invention and inspiration. However, it might never have come to the city of Rome had it not been for a guild of assassins stalking the shadows, eliminating the repressive elements of society with lethal precision.  

That might not be how the history books tell it, but this is how the events took place in the single-player portion of Assassins Creed: Brotherhood.

Preview: Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines
by Ben Perlee

Assassin's Creed was one of my favorite games to come out in 2007. There, I'll admit it.

Yes, some of the stuff was boring, and yes, I wasn't able to finish the game due to my stolen Xbox 360 and the save file, but damn if that game didn't offer exhilarating moments in an incredibly fascinating world. That's why I'm so disappointed with the change from Altair's Middle Eastern, Crusader's era to Ezio's Renaissance Italy in Assassin's Creed II. Sure, Italy is cool, but there was something really fascinating and unexplored with Altair. Italy just seems blasé to me.

So that's why I was really stoked about the PlayStation Portable game, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines. This game takes place in between Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed II, and helps explain how we end up in the land of codpieces. Will we be playing as Altair? Yes. Will this be the Assassin's Creed we love? Maybe.

Follow the jump for my preview.

The hands-off run through I saw of Assassin's Creed 2 was actually the same exact thing that was presented during the Sony conference and you can check that out above. So this preview won't be that long, but there are a few additional facts I can throw your way.  

Hit the break to hear about the new features such as the Flying Machine, swimming, hired help and more.
