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 for...
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 gam...
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 tha...
Only a few weeks removed from the kerfuffle surrounding both the Assassin's Creed Unity and Assassin's Creed Rogue reviews and embargoes, Ubisoft is opening up about exactly how The Crew's review process will go. Th...
Ubisoft owns one of the most popular videogame properties in Assassin's Creed, but that's not stopping it from trying to extend the series' appeal to an audience that some might frown upon -- children. That's the publisher's ...
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...
As much smack as I have to talk about the likes of Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs and all of Ubisoft's open world oeuvre, along with Uplay practices, I can never damn the company fully. Aside from it putting out Ra...
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. 
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...
Kind of ironic that after months of delays, Watch Underscore Dogs is finally coming to Wii U with no "Bad Blood," am I right folks?  Ubisoft's open world trench coater and the last M-rated game it will release for t...
Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...
Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid. Next week Tuesday we get two Triple-As from two big publishers: Dragon Age: Inquisition along wit...
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.
Far Cry 4 is a game I've been looking forward to since ages ago -- and now, it's finally something I can play. Poorly. Here you go, watch us flounder. Go on, we're a mess.
Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun. For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun.
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.
Ever since its 2007 debut, the Assassin's Creed franchise has been presented as a one-sided affair. Chronicling the persistent struggle between the Assassins and the Templars, Ubisoft has always framed the story casting ...
Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Désilets has announced the formation of a new Montréal-based studio, Panache Digital Games. Aside from the name, location, and this moose antler logo, (pictured below) no ot...
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...
Far Cry's new thing seems to be free flowing painted/tribal tits, nipple slips be damned, and those feature prominently in this video. But if you stick around, you'll see that there is also a little, flaccid penis! I never l...
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.
Don't expect a Blood Dragon spin-off for Far Cry 4, says Ubisoft producer Alex Hutchinson. "No. The answer is no, you won't get another one of those," Hutchinson told IGN Australia. "But hopefully we'll be able to come up with something that surprises you just as much." Pubcast Happy Hour 10: Far Cry 4 Special [IGN via Game Informer]
This new Far Cry 4 trailer highlights the entire premise in detail (more than the actual start of the game does), and shows you pretty much every major character, weapon, and item in the game. If you're already interest...
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.
Assassin's Creed IV was a turning point for the series. While a lot of fans were disappointed by the pointless Revelations and the polarizing Assassin's Creed III, Black Flag delivered everything you could possibly ...
It sure seems like Conan O'Brien's pumping out a fair number of Clueless Gamer segments lately. I suppose that's what happens in the midst of the madness of the holiday release season and publishers trip over themselves to h...
Last week, Ubisoft pulled its upcoming games--F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew--from Steam. This allowed me to roll with a headline, "Going hard in the Uplaynt," a play on "going hard in the paint" and ...
[Update: It's right here!] At Destructoid, we believe that transparency in consumer advocacy is of the utmost importance. When a review isn't going to be timely, we like to keep everyone apprised of the situation. We ma...
Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid. We're about a week and a half away from Ubisoft's next big release Far Cry 4. The game is priced at the sta...
Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid. Those in the UK are probably keenly aware of the fact, but Assassin's Creed Unity is no longer available fo...
Ubisoft's biggest three upcoming releases, F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew have been pulled from Steam, the place where a lot of people buy and play their PC games.  PCGamesN got this statement from Ub...
Limited edition shaving gels. That's where we've progressed as a society. For a "limited time" you can get a can of Edge shaving gel at your local retailer and unlock special items for Assassin's Creed: Unity. All in all, you...
Far Cry 4 is just a fortnight away. Just two more weeks. Fourteen long days. 336 interminable hours. 20,160 minutes. 1,209,600 some-odd seconds. 1,209,599 seconds. 1,209,598... Are we there yet? No. Quit asking! And stop teasing your sister or I'm turning this car around.
Far Cry 4 is the latest game to get in on the asymmetric multiplayer craze, something that's seemingly inescapable from in games today. However, this one's a bit more nuanced than the likes of Evolve's "four hunter...
Well, this changes things up. Assassin's Creed Unity is going where no ancestral assassin has gone before -- the future. This trailer shows the Animus simulation collapsing, forcing the protagonist -- still acting and d...
Do you have delusions of grandeur, the likes of which lead you to fancy yourself a great assassin among the likes of Ezio Auditore da Firenze or Arno Dorian? A mere $60 will put you significantly closer to assassin authentic...
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.
Jade Raymond, the managing director at Ubisoft Toronto, is parting ways with Ubisoft after ten years with the company, the publisher announced today. Raymond produced Assassin's Creed and served as executive producer on Assas...
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'...
Back in 2012, Far Cry 3 turned out to be a surprise hit for Ubisoft. It became the bestselling title of the series, appearing on many game of the year lists, and also created a rather excellent spin-off title. But with the an...
