Assassin's Creed Unity season pass owners' free game is coming this week

As an attempt to make amends for the flubbed Assassin's Creed Unity launch, Ubisoft announced last month that it'd grant the Dead Kings story add-on for free to all Unity players. This put out the season p...

The next Assassin's Creed reportedly takes place in Victorian London
by Brett Makedonski

The Assassin's Creed franchise goes through a little routine each spring where someone leaks information about the next installment in the series before Ubisoft can properly make the announcement. Tradition's true to form again this time 'round, but it's taking place a bit earlier than usual -- mere weeks after the most recent games were released.

According to Kotaku, it's obtained information and seen footage of the new Assassin's Creed title, which is set in Victorian London. It's either called or simply code-named Victory, and will only appear on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, just like this year's Unity. However, it's said that there's no accompanying game in the works such as Rogue to placate last-gen users.

The primary studio working on Victory is Ubisoft Quebec -- a departure from the Montreal team that usually heads Assassin's Creed titles. Of course, given that this is Ubisoft, it's a certainty that almost every one of its offices across the globe will have some hand in this effort.

Here are some day-one thoughts on The Crew photo
Here are some day-one thoughts on The Crew
by Chris Carter

Ubisoft recently notified the press that it wasn't going to send out early copies of The Crew. Instead, critics would have to experience everything at launch and beyond, meaning there would be no reviews for the game at release. That's a bummer for anyone who pre-ordered and has no idea of what to expect.

But fear not, as Brittany Vincent and I have obtained copies of The Crew, and while she's hard at work giving you the full rundown in the future, I'm here to give a few quick thoughts for all of you who haven't picked up your pre-orders yet.

Ubisoft removes Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass from the marketplace photo
Ubisoft removes Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass from the marketplace
by Alessandro Fillari

Earlier this morning, several users on NeoGAF noticed that Steam, PlayStation Network, and other online stores had removed all pages for the Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass, with German games site GamersGlobal claiming that Ubisoft plans to redo its entire post-launch plans for the troubled game. But now, the company has announced it is in fact discontinuing sales of the Season Pass and hopes to remedy the situation.

In a post on the official Unity blog, Ubisoft Montreal & Toronto CEO Yannis Mallat discussed the state of things and how the company plans to regain consumer trust. In addition to the ceased sales of the Season Pass, holders can expect to receive free content.

"To show our appreciation for your continued support, we're making the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC free for everyone," he said. "For Season Pass holders, we will also offer the choice of one additional game from a selection of Ubisoft titles for free." Those are: The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, and Just Dance 2015.

I like Far Cry 4's map editor because it leads to goat butt stabbing videos

Imagine a scenario where goats take over and rule supreme. Not good-natured, frolic in the meadow, eat your leafy spruge goats. No, purely evil, human-devouring, straight-up refuse to eat your leafy spurge goats. Pretty...

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

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.

We started pondering metaverse theory because AssCreed Unity is boring
by Bill Zoeker

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.
