Assassin’s Creed III Remastered launches March with a healthy golden glow

We now know where all the golden haze went from the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution - it was pilfered for use in Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered. Ubisoft have released a trailer for the upcoming polished-up version of arguably the wonkiest of the numbered main Creed games, and while I can't deny it looks nice, it's conspicuously golden. Every before and after shot…

Free and paid episodic adventures will expand Assassin’s Creed Odyssey after launch

Pseudo-historical stabventure Assassin's Creed Odyssey is shaping up to be an enormous game right off the bat, but Ubisoft have plans to keep players coming back well into next year. Today, they unveiled their post-launch roadmap for the game. Now confirmed, the season pass includes two episodic story arcs - one featuring an encounter with the original Hidden Blade-wielder, the other taking players to Atlantis,…

Then There Were Pyramids: AC III’s Washington DLC Ends

I'm actually afraid to play Assassin's Creed III's Tyranny of King Washington DLC. It's been on my List Of Vaguely Tantalizing Curiosities for quite some time, but I'm sick with worry that it can't possibly live up to the madness its trailers boast. I mean, so far we've seen ghost eagles, mind-controlled Benjamin Franklin, and Washington sauntering - dual pistols cocked, nostrils flared and lips…

AC III: The Continuing Tyranny Of King Washington

George Washington? More like Jerk Washingtonsofbutts. I'm sorry. I haven't slept much lately, and any time that's the case, my ability to cleverly insult implausibly mad re-envisionings of cherished historical figures is always the first thing to go. But I'm pressing on regardless, just like our tree-toothed, grumpyfaced bizarro pal Georgie Scourgie in Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny Of King Washington Episode II: Betrayal (And Counting!).…

AC III: Tyranny Of King Washing Machine Out Now

I think that was my country's first President's name. Something like that. Honestly, I'm fuzzy on the details, because history was never my strong suit, and I secretly pledge my allegiance to the vengeful, cursed spirit of Mummy King Ramses II. But yes, Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washingface episode one has officially ridden a star-spangled, single-tear-propelled eagle onto Steam, Uplay, and the…

Blood Money: Assassin’s Creed III’s Microtransactions

Hm. Here's something that's leaped out of nowhere, descended upon us in a flash of bloodlust, and knocked us flat in much the same fashion as an enraged koala or, more pertinently, an assassin. Assassin's Creed III is not by any means a F2P game, but it'll still have a (seemingly entirely optional) pay structure just like one. Granted, that in itself isn't really a…

Hide And Go ‘Aaaarghwhy’ – AC III’s Multiplayer

On paper, Assassin's Creed multiplayer always sounded like something that absolutely, categorically would not work. I mean, we're talking about a series known for its sprawling tales of historical conspiracy and climactically timed eagle noises. How could that possibly translate into a teeming arena of hooded hoodlums? As it turns out, the answer to that question is "quite well." In previous entries, Ubisoft crafted a pretty…

So, What’s The Deal With AC III’s Connor?

I feel like it's something of a credit to Assassin's Creed III that Ubisoft can overload our finely honed assassin senses with barrage after barrage of media, yet I still feel a tingle of excitement watching some of it. I mean, there's a fine line between whetting our appetites and shoving a fully cooked turkey down our throats, and Assassin's Creed III crossed it ages…

Historically Accurate: AC III’s ‘King Washington’ DLC

Ubisoft's officially taken the star-spangled wraps off Assassin's Creed III's first batch of DLC, and it's probably not what you were expecting. Well, OK, it's partially exactly what you were expecting - for instance, one of those ever-popular pay-it-all-upfront Season Passes and a couple helpings of extra multiplayer content. But then there's also the part where you're trying to kill George Washington. Evil United States Post-Revolutionary…

Everyone On Earth Talks About AC III’s Connor

I counted. The latest Assassin's Creed III "Inside" special features seven billion different human beings. And also George Washington, who counts as one man, one myth, and one legend. It's a fairly intimidating roster, to be sure, but the whole production is quite ably done. The topic at hand today is none other than exotically named half-Native-American main character Connor, and there's actually some pretty…

RPS FIRST: Inside A Post Of Inside Assassin’s Creed III

It's one of the most anticipated blog posts in internet history. Now, in a one-part series, get an inside look at the creation of a blog post about a making of trailer for Assassin's Creed III. Inside the process that's behind one of the most exciting articles ever written. Inside the technical breakthroughs that made it all possible. And inside the mind of John Walker,…

Blades To A Cannon Fight: Assassin’s Creed’s Ship Battles

I sort of love it when game trailers have zero context. For instance, I'm sure there's a story-based reason full of love, loss, and QTE-based hugs for Connor's sudden ability to captain a warship, but this quick glimpse makes it look like he simply stole someone's clothes, strolled aboard, and started barking orders. I wish I could do that. I need more clothes. Also, a…

Confirmed: Assassin’s Creed III On November 23rd

As we previously reported, the PC version of Assassin's Creed III will not arrive until November 23rd, three weeks after the console versions. Ubisoft confirmed the date in a release this afternoon. I've reposted the "Frontier Demo" video below, as I think that's the most interesting and impressive glimpse of the game that we've had so far.

Just Release Assassin’s Creed, Not Six Different Versions

There is certainly a long list of things we grumble about when it comes to game releases these days, from day one DLC to whichever mad choice of DRM accompanies, but they can all pretty much be summed up in one statement: Just release the game. It would make every gamer so much happier. And on that list is when games release themselves in different…

Delawere: AssCreed III’s Co-op Wolf Pack

There are no lycanthropes in AssCreed III but I might manage a smile if AssCreed IV, which will probably be the fifteenth game in the series, had all manner of shapeshifters and undead running around in its industrial British setting. The American Wolf Pack aren't a band of teenwolves though, or indeed a group of increasingly unpleasant men with sore heads, but rather the teams…

Fassassin’s Creed

Here is a pattern: - Action videogame is successful - Movie rights are optioned by big studio - Big star and/or director is attached - ???? - Humdrum movie fails to make as much profit as hoped. Assassin's Creed is next to be dragged to the blockbuster movie adaptation stocks, and none other than Michael 'only good thing about Prometheus' Fassbender is going to wilfully…
