A new trailer commemorates the release of Assassin's Creed Unity's free DLC

Do you believe in ghosts? I'm not sure Arno does, but who wouldn't temporarily suspend their disbelief for "ancient artifacts and lost fortunes?" "Sure, the spirits of dead kings are everywhere. Whatever. Big money, big mone...

These Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks were 'designed with adult collectors in mind'

Brett told us about the Assassin's Creed Mega Bloks only to totally leave us hanging now that the toys are viewable online. Never did trust that guy. Makedonski? Obviously a phony last name. Anyway, yes, Ubisoft has posted im...

Assassin's Creed Unity's free DLC is a week away, and it looks too spooky

Assassin's Creed Unity was mostly an adventure that took place on the crowded Parisian streets, all jam-packed with people. The game's first add-on looks to be similarly populated -- not by lively dissenters, but by the...

Alaska, vampires, Jurassic Park: Ubisoft polls future Far Cry settings

Not that it was in doubt after Far Cry 4's sameness (to FC3), but Far Cry has been Ubisoft'd, its mechanics ripped and torn from one setting to another in the name of disconnected virtual tourism. Ubisoft polled its fans...

Far Cry 4 inaccessible on Xbox One, even if you already bought it (Update)
by Mike Cosimano

[Update: Far Cry 4 has been reinstated on the Xbox One games store, restoring permissions for several users. For those who are still experiencing difficulties, Ubisoft officially recommends a hard reboot of the Xbox One console, as relayed by community manager Ubi_Jax. We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment.]

Far Cry 4 has been removed from the Xbox One games store, leaving some players unable to access the game despite having already purchased and downloaded the title. Ubisoft is actively investigating the issue, but suggests contacting Xbox Support in the meantime.

The problem was first reported nine hours ago on reddit by user AegeusRex, who was stymied by their inability to launch a digital copy of Far Cry 4 Gold Edition. Several other users lodged a similar complaint, and the malaise spread to Ubisoft's support forum soon after.

Ubisoft believes the problem stems from Far Cry 4 being unavailable for purchase through the Xbox One's digital store. The game appears in searches, but clicking on the standard version results in a 'Page Not Found' error. Curiously, the Gold Edition seems to be available for purchase.

We'll keep an eye on this story, but for now, it seems like your best bet is to wait for Microsoft to restore the game. Maybe buy a physical version next time?

Assigning New Year's resolutions to major videogame studios photo
Assigning New Year's resolutions to major videogame studios
by Kyle MacGregor

It's an annual tradition: Making resolutions to kick off the New Year. There's a whole new arbitrary set of twelve months in which to better ourselves. Or, you know, make the same mistakes we made in the last dozen. It's finally time to quit smoking or start going to the gym. Whatever.

Here's a bunch of words about what videogame companies should do to shape up in 2015.

Review: The Crew  photo
Review: The Crew
by Brittany Vincent

A great racer to me doesn’t focus on an abundance of customization options or entire garages of cars. It doesn’t even serve up solid multiplayer modes or an interesting soundtrack. It keeps me playing.

And let me tell you, unless it’s Mario Kart or a stupidly solid racer that entrances me from its opening credits, that doesn’t happen very often. I don’t care about winning a tournament and I have no interest in being a professional race car driver like Jerry.

Far Cry 4 DLC wants you dead... permanently

Far Cry 4 was a pretty restrained game by comparison to Far Cry 3. Sure you could command an elephant into battle, but the game's hero Ajay Ghale never got himself into enough truly bizarre situations. Thankfully, there's a n...

The next Assassin's Creed reportedly takes place in Victorian London photo
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.
