Assassin's Creed Unity
/ pc / ps3 / ps4 / Xbox One / xbox360


Assassin's Creed will feature more modern day segments in the future

Twenty more years of Assassin's Creed
Feb 27
The amusing glitch-fest that was Assassin's Creed Unity didn't intentionally eschew the series' whacked out modern day narrative. In fact, more dalliances into now-time were planned for Unity, Assassin's Creed lead writer Dar...

It's really easy
Dec 18
Ubisoft's offer for a free game for Assassin's Creed Unity season pass owners is now live, and it's extremely simple. In fact, it only took a few clicks before I was the proud new owner of Far Cry 4. Here's how to do it....

Luckily, there's a work-around

We're starting to lose our patience with Ass Creed: Unity

"Oi, Guv! Did you nick my Vichyssoise?!"
Nov 19
Max and I are still working our way through the first hour of Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really like re-watching this part of our playthrough because every time I do, I see a new NPC twitching or jostling around. Also, we made jokes about reality television and stuff. 

Ubisoft outlines the bugs it's killing with third Assassin's Creed Unity patch

'Won't solve every problem, but we're expecting that it will dramatically improve your experience'
Nov 17
Less than a week after release, Ubisoft's already planning and detailing the third of Assassin's Creed Unity's patches. This update is said to be "larger in scope" than the previous patches, and will focus on several problema...

We started pondering metaverse theory because AssCreed Unity is boring

What if AssCreed existed in a world were the developers could finish it
Nov 14
Max and I were fighting to stay awake through the beginning of Assassin's Creed Unity, and Max posited a theory that many Ubisoft published games exist in the same universe. Then we saw a fancy boy and a pig and at least had something to joke about for a while.

We played Assassin's Creed Unity, and it was doomed from the start

From boring to broken in just 10 minutes
Nov 13
Oh boy... Max and I jumped into Assassin's Creed Unity. Max started out cautiously excited at what this new iteration might bring, while I have never been at all interested in the series. It's not long before both of our sentiments landed at the same astonished disappointment. Trust me, it only gets uglier from here.

Fixes are on the way
Nov 13
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...

Let's watch Assassin's Creed Unity glitch out to the tune of 'Barbie Girl'

That's our Assassin's Creed
Nov 12
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.

Assassin's Creed Unity really nails those next-gen glitches

I mean 'current-gen'
Nov 11
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.

Review: Assassin's Creed Unity

Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death
Nov 11

Another Clueless Gamer segment

What the hell, Assassin's Creed? Time-travel isn't part of the deal

This throws a monkey wrench into things
Oct 30

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad

The brochure said there'd only be a few
Oct 24
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.

Time well spent
Oct 06
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...

Well that's one way to placate fans

Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue PAX impressions

Those real-life costumes at PAX were neat
Sep 04
I'm not sure how Max had this much energy in the middle of PAX Prime to speak in front of a camera about Assassin's Creed -- for over eight minutes, no less -- but he did. What a champ. Conceptually, I like the sound of chas...

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

Revolutions aren't as polite as I'd imagined
Jul 14
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.

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

I'm waiting for unabashed Skinner Box pre-order bonuses
Jun 24
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.
