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…

Assassin’s Plead: Beiswenger’s Ubisoft Lawsuit Dropped

Aw, bums. That batshit lawsuit against Ubisoft has been dropped. The one where the eccentric author/inventor/dreamer of a Christians-only enclave for the end times, John Beiswenger, accused Ubi of having stolen the silly Animus plot from his classic work of literature, Link. But Joystiq has spotted that he's abandoned his case for $5,250,000. Boo.

Author Sues Ubisoft Over AssCreed’s Animus Nonsense

Okay, easy question. What's the worst thing about the Assassin's Creed series? Correct! Of course, as everyone knows, it's the ridiculous sci-fi nonsense that constantly interrupts the good fun time you're having leaping about in historytimes. It's dumb, it's a shame it was ever a part of the games, and now someone is suing Ubisoft because he says it's his idea... waitwhat.

Feature: Assassin's Creed III Previewed: Evolution not Revelations

Talkin’ Bout Assassin’s Creed III’s Revolution

There’s some muttering in the audience as Tommy Francois, IP development director at Ubisoft leads us through a sixty minute history of Assassin’s Creed III’s development. From concept work in 2010 to animation tests to proof of concept videos to details on the historical research, we’re being shown everything except the game itself. For a game this size and in this age of wham, bam,…

Massive Entertainment Building Far Cry 3’s Multiplayer

Yup, that Massive: the Ground Control and World in Conflict devs have been disarmingly silent of late. But according to reports from the Ubisoft GDC event, they're helping to create the Far Cry 3 multiplayer. "Huh?", you might think, but hold that back for a moment - I have more. According to Vox Game's Brian Crecente In working on Far Cry 3's "online universe" Ubisoft…

Fear Not: Assassin’s Creed 3 *Will* Be On PC

Yesterday's Assassin's Creed III firsto-revealo-CGIo-trailero created a spot of inadvertent drama by leaving out a single word in a sentence of text at the end. That word was 'date'. And the sentence it should have been in was 'PC format release to be confirmed.' Cue screaming. Not by me, as I did think it was clear, but some people got the wrong end of the…

Team America: Assassin’s Creed 3 Revealed, Properly

The American Revolution is a fascinating setting to have moved AssCreed onto, and not just because it puts me in mind of my beloved Colonization. Proto-technology, a wildly changeable climate, shades of grey on both sides of the conflict and recognisable mythology to apply conspiracy theories to. My major concern is that the English will be cast as one-note boo-hiss baddies, but then again the…

Writers Guild Award Noms For Brink and Bats

The UK Writers' Guild Awards took place at the end of 2011 but the American guild like to time their ceremonies a little closer to the Oscars so that they can fall into Awards Season, which isn't actually a season at all. You may remember that a man named Gillen was nominated for the UK award, along with Ed Stern whose script for Brink received…

More AssCreedRev Multiplayer In A Fortnight

Assassin's Creed: Revelations' multiplayer is soon to get a bit bigger. The Mediterranean Traveller Map Pack comes out as DLC on the 24th, and rather pleasingly the PC has it at the same time as the consoles (thus far). This is that almost forgotten breed of DLC, the stuff you pay for. To get the extra six multiplayer maps, featuring Jerusalem, imperial district of Constantinople,…

Assassin’s Creed Rev Adds In The Ancestors

Ubisoft have just dolloped out a dose of paid-for DLC for Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and by my grandmothers long dead knees, they've released the PC version at the same time as the 360! The Ancestors Character Pack is out even before the PS3, which gets it tomorrow. This explains those cracks that have been appearing in the streets, and the low, dreadful rumbling of rising…

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations review

The fourth Assassin's Creed game is out on PC now, for once merely weeks rather than months behind the console version. I've been dragging old man Ezio across its rooftops and into its underground lairs of conspiracy for the last few days, and as such... well, you know how this goes. Experimentation, calibration, celebration and now stagnation: that's been the course Assassin's Creed games have…

The Ever-Ezioing Story: AssCreed So Far

Aha! I've just received word that PC review code for Assassin's Creed: Revelations is leaping towards my post box as we speak (WITtery due on Nov 29th, if all goes to plan), which means we can stop worrying that we'll be waiting months for Ezio and Desmond to finally creep this way. So, it seems apt to run this AssCreed: The Story So Far videorama,…

Oh, But Some Good Ass Rev News: DRM

While we may be suffering a delay on Assassin's Creed: Revelations, there's some good news. Ubisoft have just confirmed for me that the game will not be coming with their hideous "always-on" DRM - a sign that perhaps, since it's absent from such a big title, that they're finally recognising it shouldn't be anywhere near any of their products. Instead you'll need to be online…

Not Ass Creed: Revelations’ Launch Trailer

The Assassin's Creed: Revelations launch trailer has gone live today, to mark the game's launch on Tuesday next week. Except of course it's only launching on Xbox and PS3 next week, because as usual Ubisoft, after pretending it was going to come out at the same time, announced a delay. This time they were kind enough to make that announcement at the end of September,…

Assassin’s Creed Reveals Constantinople

There's a bit, 1m40s in, into this new Assassin's Creed Revelations trailer that I feel is a microcosm for how Ubisoft views the PC. A guard stands over a collapsed and bloodied man, who represents the PC gamers excited by the game but who have to wait for them to kick the console beta version out first. The guard then punches the downed man. The…

Which AssCreed Revelations Is Which?

It is now par for the course for most big-name videogames to release a special edition designed to enrapture the more passionate/nerdly fans, ensure more pre-orders and make a few bonus groats on each copy sold. It is also now par for the course for many big-name videogames to include bonus DLC, skins and that sort of thing when pre-ordered at certain retailers - designed…

Den Defence: Assassin’s Creed Revelations

Assassins love their dens almost as much as foxes love theirs. It's where they hang out, sharpening their knives and polishing their coins, so it's hardly surprising that when gangs of angry Templars start storming those dens, trying to dull the knives and mar the coins, the assassins are having none of it. Admittedly, it's a little surprising that there appears to be a tower…

Ubi Delay Assassin’s Creed: Revelations PC

Eurogamer are reporting that the PC version of the game will now appear 2nd December 2011, a couple of weeks behind the console versions. This comes as no surprise to anyone who has been following Ubisoft's multiplatform releases over the past couple of years, many of which have been delayed on PC. But let's not lose perspective over this: that's actually an improvement over the…

A Stab At It: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

The next Assassin's Creed, Revelations, is once again going to have a fulsome multiplayer game for us to sink our concealed weapons into. It's beautiful, too. And stabby. For a taste of quite how stabby it's worth taking a look at the trailer below. Goodness, that's some stylish violence, yes sir. The game is apparently due for release on all formats on November 15th.

Nine Minutes Of Assassin’s Creed Revelations

If you want to see the demonstration that was shown to journalists at Gamescom over the past couple of days then you need look no further than the crypt in the foundations beneath this post. Nine (count 'em!) minutes of the next Assassin's Creed game in action. There is snow, sneaking, and some stabbing. It looks lovely, but then I always think that about the…
