Assassin’s Creed Valhalla burns down England in today’s debut trailer

Following its teaser-slash-art-project reveal last night, Assassin's Creed Valhalla finally has a proper cinematic trailer. Beards, axes, longboats and raiding? Yup. It's Vikings. Down on their luck and out of options, our latest assassin is crossing the sea to live out the ninth-century Norwegian dream - pillaging the ever-lasting christ out of England.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla announced, starring burly beardy Vikings

Following a curious build-up through a livestreamed drawing, Ubisoft today announced Assassin's Creed Valhalla. This time, Vikings seem to be the stars of the sandbox murder simulator. For now, all Ubisoft have to show is a seven-hour drawing and all they have to say is mutterings about the lads coming "to conquer a new land" and that. We'll learn more tomorrow when a trailer arrives.

Watch the next Assassin’s Creed revealed here live through a drawing

Today's the day for Ubisoft to announce a new Assassin's Creed game, or at least to reveal where they're taking the globetrotting murder simulator next. This is happening through the unconventional medium of an artist drawing a picture on a livestream, which when finished will show the game's landscape and the murderer who'll roam it. Some earlier unconfirmed rumours claimed the game would be Assassin's…

First Fate Of Atlantis Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC is free if you nab it now

"Assassin's Creed Odyssey finally has DLC worth paying out for" said Alice L in her Fate Of Atlantis vid. Joke's on her: if you own the base game and download the first episode of the three-part series before September 1st, you won't need to spend a penny. The first instalment lets you poke around Elysium's eternal idyllic afternoon, stabbing alien gods while marvelling at how…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey retires to sunny Atlantis for its final DLC today

Once more unto the beach, dear friends, though returning to Assassin's Creed Odyssey is usually a cheery experience, last episode's detour to Hades aside. Judgement Of Atlantis is the third and final part of the Fate Of Atlantis arc, and likely the the last ever DLC chapter to the open-world hack n' slasher. Out now, it finally lets players rise out of the Greek afterlife…

Ubisoft put their foot down over Assassin’s Creed Odyssey XP farming user-quests

Give people mod tools, and they'll do wonderful things, unless the game has an experience system, then they'll break it over their knees. Predictably, that was one of the first things players did with Assassin's Creed Odyssey's new Story Creator Mode, a browser-based quest editor. Yesterday, Ubisoft put their foot down on players making self-completing XP farming quests, officially stating that their prevalence leads to…

Ubisoft’s numbers say subtitles are really jolly popular

95% of Assassin's Creed Odyssey players kept subtitles on, Ubisoft have revealed, and 50% of The Division 2 players are currently playing with them on too. These surprising statistics and more come from a wee tweetblast this week confirming that yes, subtitles are hugely desirable even in murdergames. Even as someone who often plays with subs on, I'm surprised by the numbers shared by David…

Ubisoft’s Gods & Monsters looks like Asscreedo meets Zelda

Ubisoft Quebec are about finished with Assassin's Creed Oydssey but they're far from done with Ancient Greece, today announcing an open-world action-adventure game set in Greek mythology. Gods & Monsters is its name, and looking like a cheerier and less murderier take on Asscreed is its game. I do worry that Ubisoft may have misread enthusiasm around Asscreedo's mythological DLC, thinking our Alice Bee was…

Ubisoft continue to claim their games don’t have political stances, are still wrong

Ubisoft, who make RPGs about a 3000-year-long battle between freedom and order, FPSs about liberating occupied lands, and military shooters so jingoistic they cause governmental complaints, have been arguing for a long time that their games aren’t political. Yesterday, they posted an interview with Tommy Francois, vice president of editorial, in an attempt to clarify their position. It did not help.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey may unveil a Story Creator Mode soon

As if Assassin's Creed Odyssey wasn't mindbogglingly huge (and still-growing) already, it might just become endless soon. Today, Assassin's Creed fan-site Access The Animus mentioned on Twitter that they've been invited to test an "upcoming community oriented tool" for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Normally, this could mean anything, except that back in April, Ubisoft community manager Dominik Voigt accidentally posted something in public that likely should…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Torment Of Hades goes to (Greek) hell today

Remember when folks wanted all the supernatural stuff axed from Assassin's Creed? Thanks to expansions like Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Torment Of Hades, which launched today, they're a bit quieter now. Continuing the story arc kicked off in Fields Of Elysium back in April, Kassandra (or Alexios) is headed down to the underworld, which means going through its three-headed, fire-breathing guard dog. Turns out that Hades…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis is out now

Gorgeous as the Greek isles were, it's nice see some fresh scenery, and today's Assassin's Creed Odyssey DLC, The Fields Of Elysium (episode one of the three-part Fate Of Atlantis) looks stunning, if a little unsafe. Continuing the techno-mystical B-plot of the series, it's taking players into Atlantis, and from there into the Fields Of Elysium, the nicest place to be in the Greek afterlife.…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis takes us beyond Greece next week

The first chunk of DLC for Assassin's Creed Odyssey had some decent enough missions, but didn't really justify Ubisoft's entire season pass. The second half - The Fate Of Atlantis - looks like it's going to be a far more interesting adventure. Launching next week, April 23rd, it reminds me a lot of the underworld-delving second expansion for AC: Origins. It seems there's a bit…

A bug in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is borking laptop performance, but a fix is on the way

If you've been keeping track of my gaming laptop reviews lately, you'll have noticed that Assassin's Creed Odyssey has been murdering a lot more than dodgy cult members lately. It's also been slashing the game's frame rate, turning what should be silky smooth performance into a stuttering sideshow. When I first encountered the problem on the Alienware m15, I was worried it might be a…
