Assassins Creed

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...
With Hearthstone taking the world by storm, why wouldn't the biggest videogame publishers want in on that action? Ubisoft's smart enough to recognize a good thing when it sees it, and agile enough to act quickly. As a re...
Are you going to San Diego Comic-Con? If so, Ubisoft has some activities planned for you. These aren't your run-of-the-mill "let's go to a few panels" either (although you can totally do that if you want). As promotion for As...
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.
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. 
Pre-order DLC has just crossed over into the realm of the bizarre. Starting today, you can pre-order Assassin's Creed Unity to gain access to a digital slot machine that allows you to win a host of prizes from Ubisoft. Every...
If you're wondering why Ubisoft made the decision to omit female assassins from the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity's four-player cooperative mode, it's simple. And I'll admit, a little predictable. According to an interview...
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 ...
Earlier today, Microsoft showed off Assassin's Creed Unity's four-player cooperative play, but Ubisoft still had more footage to display of its stealth/action/parkour juggernaut set during the French Revolution. Most importa...
Wait, you mean Watch Dogs isn't simply an extension of Assassin's Creed? I kid, I kid. It appears that Olivier Garneau, CEO of Abstergo Entertainment (as seen in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag) is actually in Watch Dogs in t...
There was certainly hype surrounding Watch Dogs. From its surprising reveal back in 2012, there were a lot of eyes locked on this particular title. Even after delays and some controversy surrounding the graphics, it still man...
Oh, it's that magical time of year! The season where E3 anticipation is in full swing, and publishers send out friendly emails to remind everyone that they're going to have a presence at the big show. Ubisoft sounds as if it ...
Ubisoft has lofty goals as a publisher and developer and you can see why looking at its financials. The Assassin's Creed series is the fourth best selling series of the last nine years, which makes sense when your series sees...
Tons of Ubisoft-related news today. The Division has been delayed, we're getting a new Far Cry, and in general Ubisoft titles have been performing well across the board. In particular, Assassin's Creed IV moved 11 million uni...
