Ubisoft's canceled 1666 resurfaces as trademark

You can (maybe) dress up as an Assassin or Sam Fisher in The Division now

You can’t throw a stick around here lately without hitting news about The Division, I know, but given this might be shinier news rather than the crap about characters being wiped and that maddeningly restrictive trade scheme, what the...   read

Review: Assassin's Creed Syndicate: The Last Maharaja

With Ubisoft's confirmation that it won't be developing a core Assassin's Creed game in 2016, we're left with something of a lull. Sure, this year still has India, Russia, Initiates, and a movie, but that Assassin's Creed isn't th...   read

Review: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India
