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…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey adds historian-friendly, combat-free Discovery Tour

Hello there! It's me again, Gera - Rock Paper Shotgun's official ambassador of Canada. I'll be your guide this week on the balmy seas of gaming's evening news. As the sun sets on England, I get to work - slipping on my traditional Canadian Press-Touque, before I press my ear tightly against my monitor and listen for incoming news. Alice isn't convinced by my methods…

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, but…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey wants you to soak up the sights in its new Exploration Mode

As mindbogglingly huge as Assassin's Creed Origins was, it never felt possible to get lost in its sprawling Egyptian landscapes. For Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Ubisoft want you to get a little bit lost. Spotted by Eurogamer during a hands-on preview, Exploration Mode is a new option described in-game as "the way Assassin's Creed Odyssey is meant to be experienced". Rather than hold your hand as you…

The Assassin’s Creed series is taking a little lie-down in 2019

Ubisoft are giving their studios a moment to catch their breath after the launch of Assassin's Creed Odyssey in October. After debuting a new Odyssey trailer (below) at Gamescom, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that there's no sequels, spinoffs or side-games due in 2019, as reported by Gamespot. Their focus for next year will be live support for Odyssey. Probably for the best, as according to…

Kassandra is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s main hero, but only in the book

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will let us play as either Kassandra or Alexios, both Spartan warriors, but creative director Jonathan Dumont told Reddit that it’s the former who is considered the canon protagonist, at least in the upcoming official novelisation. It won’t affect the game, however, as whoever you play as will be treated as the one, true hero. The game's marketing, however, seems altogether Alexios-inclined...

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey kicks off in October

After a great many leaks, Ubisoft today finally announced Assassin's Creed Odyssey, taking the open-world murder simulator to Ancient Greece. Playing as a lad or a lass who's the grandkid of Leonidas, the Scot who was crowned king of Sparta after kicking a postman down a hole, we'll sneak, sail, and stab across the land. It largely resembles last year's Assassin's Creed Origins, obviously, but…

Assassin’s Creed Origins becomes edutainment Feb 20th

On top of being a broadly pleasant surprise and a very strong return to form for Ubisoft's open-world murder-sandbox series, one of the key selling points of Assassin's Creed Oranges for me was a promised feature that wasn't quite ready in time for launch.Ubisoft are finally making good on their plans next week. On February 20th, the Discovery Tour mode will be arriving as a…

Assassin’s Creed Movie Trailer Takes A Flying Leap

Would I want to watch a movie about Michael Fassbender's chiselled, time travelling jaw? Yes. Would I want to watch an Assassin's Creed movie? Slightly less so. But this first trailer goes some way to convincing me that even if the plot turns out to be about Desmond, there'll be enough leaping about and kicking to make it worthwhile watching on Channel 5 in four…

Ubisoft’s Annual Uplay Spring Sale Now On

My calendar tells me we're now over halfway through April. The Met Office tells me astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere started on March 20. Yet the weatherman told me yesterday that I can expect highs of a whopping nine degrees centigrade here in Glasgow this weekend. I'd swear it was still winter had the annual Uplay Spring Sale not kicked off this week, with…

Put Your Knives Away: No New Assassin’s Creed In 2016

Since 2009's Assassin's Creed II, Ubisoft have released a new open-world murder playground every single year. Not in 2016. AC will indeed be taking a rest for a bit of a reworking, as was rumoured. I wonder if that means the Ancient Egypt setting for the next entry that rumourmongers mentioned is real too. Point is, Ubi are skipping 2016 and planning to return later…

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India Sneaks Out

Think what you will about the wildly unconfirmed rumours of the core Assassin's Creed thread skipping 2016 (the RPS line is that they're a fun excuse for daydreaming about revamps), we're certainly seeing some Assassin's Creed games this year. The 2.5D spin-off miniseries Assassin's Creed Chronicles [official site] is one step closer to its conclusion, as ACC India launched last night. We've still got Russia…

RPS Asks: How To Revamp Assassin’s Creed?

A rumour is going round, based on anonymous 4chan posts supposedly by an Ubisoft employee, that we'll not see a new main Assassin's Creed game in 2016, but it'll return in 2017 with a complete overhaul set in Ancient Egypt. Not the most reliable of sources, that, and probably not a rumour to put money on. However, now we're all back at work and loitering…
