What is Assassin's Creed: Rising Phoenix?

Earlier this year, an image for a project called "Assassin's Creed: Rising Phoenix" was uncovered, which Ubisoft promptly denied involvement in. Many speculated that this was a PlayStation Vita game with a release date of Oct...

Review: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
by Conrad Zimmerman

Another year, another Assassin's Creed.

Ubisoft hasn't shown any signs of slowing down on annual releases for the series, despite handily finishing its main story arc. Correctly identifying the best innovation of Assassin's Creed III as its naval combat, this latest title incorporates it as the defining feature and centers the narrative around pirate adventure in the early 18th century.

Less is more: Assassin's Creed IV and the modern world photo
Less is more: Assassin's Creed IV and the modern world

[Editor's Note: Our copy of Assassin's Creed IV came in late and, as a result, the review by Conrad Zimmerman will be tardy as well. We hope this piece by Chris will help tide you over.]

It turns out Ubisoft made good on its promise to not shove the modern day portion of Assassin's Creed IV down your throat. Throughout my time with the game, there are only a scant few portions that require you to venture outside of the exciting, debauchery-filled life of Edward Kenway, and into the present day.

But you know what? I actually spent a lot more time in it that I had initially planned, because the developers made an interesting call -- they made the real world sub-plot ancillary to the core game. And it was the right choice.

Blackbeard comes to life in this Assassin's Creed IV film

The Internet loves making live-action shorts based on Assassin's Creed, and this new one from Corridor Digital is pretty damn amazing. This one sees the "heroes" of Assassin's Creed IV take on a greedy merchant.

The open ocean makes Assassin's Creed feel fresh again
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

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 wanted to focus specifically the open ocean world and how you'll be interacting with it here.

Why? Because it was easily my favorite new feature for the Assassin's Creed series due to it being something fresh and different. Plus I liked ramming my big ship into tiny little ships because I'm the best pirate ever.
