Inside Assassins Creed III: Part Deux


2:00 PM on 09.02.2012



Part two of Ubisoft's Assassins Creed III developer diary series is here and it focuses on the combat, weapons and tactics players will have at their disposal when the game hits shelves this November. In addition to some of the more typical interviews with the title's creative and technical directors, the short mixes footage featuring the Sons of the American Revolution, history professors and military consultants that discuss the time period, 18th century warfare and the authenticity with which Ubisoft presents these in AC3

The pseudo-historical documentary style of these videos reminds me of what Visceral Games did with Dante's Inferno: Divine Edition, which I'm sure will please more than a few history buffs out there. Even if the development team is going to take certain liberties to make it a more entertaining product, it's nice to know there's a reverence for the source material there.

Expect severed heads and stabbed necks in this Assassin's Creed Unity trailer

Just in time for Bastille Day, Assassin's Creed Unity comes dropping down from the shadows to provide a new glimpse at its take on the French Revolution. Apparently, these aren't exactly civil affairs, so a suitable amount of inspired violence is on display. As the trailer points out, there's no justice unless someone fights for it.more

Video: Ubisoft is now luring consumers into pre-orders with gambling

Ubisoft has launched a new tactic for netting pre-orders for Assassin's Creed: Unity in the form of a digital slot machine. Pre-order customers gain 5 free spins every Friday, and prizes include everything from in-game content to a trip to Paris. While participants pay no actual money to play, using gambling as a way to attract customers still feels a bit sleazy. more
