For the first time since 2009, Ubisoft will not release a big Assassin’s Creed game this fall, the publisher said today. It’s a huge shift for their tentpole series.
The third and presumably final 2D Assassin’s Creed Chronicles game is out this week and looks even better than last month’s one set in India. We captured video of its first level.
There really aren’t enough Assassin’s Creed games these days, so it’s a good thing Ubisoft just announced that the mobile action-RPG Assassin’s Creed Identity, released ages ago in Australia, will be out in the U.S. on February 25. It’ll be $5.
Who needs a vacation to the Carribeans when you can just boot up this lovely Assassin’s Creed Havana map in Minecraft? The majority of people, probably. But hey, it’s still a pretty cool build.
At Ubisoft, big video games like Assassin’s Creed are developed by hundreds of people at many different studios across the world. As you might imagine, this can be an organizational nightmare.
The recently-released Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India plays ok (very much like ACC: China before it), but, wow, does it look pretty. The game’s artists took splendid advantage of how rare it is to see a game set in India. I had to capture some footage to show you. Enjoy!
I was kidnapping a guy the other night in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and overheard a couple of Londoners engaging in some insult sword fighting. If you ask me, most of the enemies in these games fight like dairy farmers...
A lot of very nice words have (surprisingly, given Unity’s qualities) been written about the latest Assassin’s Creed game, but there’s one thing a lot of them overlook: just how pretty this video game is.
Is there anyway the movies of 2016 could live up to 2015? 2015 had Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator and The Avengers. 2016 has Batman, Superman, Deadpool and even more Star Wars. But that’s just the beginning of what’s a super exciting year at the movies.
Every fall for the past six years, Ubisoft has released at least one big new Assassin’s Creed game. This year, the mega-publisher could be breaking tradition, skipping fall for the first time since 2009, according to a number of sources speaking both to Kotaku and others.
In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, there’s a guy whose entire job is to stand on a boat and get knocked into a river. That’s it. That’s his whole life.
Let us praise a thing that matters a lot in video games: the quality of an in-game map. Zooming in, let us heap praise upon 2015’s most magnificent in-game map, the one that appeared in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
Over the weekend Entertainment Weekly posted a story about the upcoming Fassbender-fueled Assassin’s Creed movie featuring the image above. The story was about—what does it matter? We’ve got everything we need to pass judgement right here.
I got an early Christmas present yesterday when a copy of Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History arrived at my doorstep. It’s a shame I’d already written my gift guide for art books, because this would have jumped straight on it.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s new Jack The Ripper expansion is a compelling if rough-edged remix of the base game that cleverly works in one of history’s most famous killers. It pulls off another trick, too, going to extraordinary lengths to engender empathy for a group of people who don’t get much of it in video…
A pair of Assassin’s Creed sidescrollers set in 19th century India and early 20th century Russia will be released on January 12 and February 9, respectively, according to a Ubisoft press release, months after the publisher had all but stopped talking about them.
If there’s been one constant with the Assassin’s Creed games over the last few years, it’s that they’ve run like shit on PC.
