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,…

What Is Ubisoft’s ‘Ambitious PC Project’?

Poor old Ubisoft has taken a few money-knocks, admit its latest financial results, which involved a $74.1m / £45.5m loss for the last fiscal year. This has, sadly, led to the cancellation of several unnamed games. Everyone's praying it's not Beyond Good & Evil 2, of course, but it'll probably be a while until we find out what definitely faced the axe. However, a piece…

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood review

Ubisoft's third Assassin's Creed game arrived on PC on Friday - some four months later than the console version. I poured some time in the Xbox 360 (hissssss) edition late last year, and I've now spent the last week or so with the PC one. Too little too late, or about damned time? Or a bit of both? Here's my verdict. The game that's least…

Oh, Ubisoft: Torrented Their Own Music?

Ubisoft, you do like making mistakes. The publisher's strange habit of incorporating piracy into their products seems to have reared once more. Remember back in 2008 when they thought it would be a good idea to officially patch Rainbow Six Vegas 2 with an illegal NO-CD crack? Today Eurogamer brings us news that those copyright infringing scamps may have been at it again. This time…

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood’s Not-DLC

The people of Ubisoft have released a video to hype up the fact that the PC version of Brotherhood - that multiplayer stabbing game of the series - will come with The Da Vinci Disappearance, which is the console DLC for the game. Which essentially means it's not DLC on PC, it just is part of the game. The clue to the details of this…

Good: Brotherhood Will Be “Playable Offline”

The accursed always-on DRM of Ubisoft's last couple of games seems to be dead. VG247 have word from a Ubi rep that “The PC version of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, after an initial login, will be playable offline in single player mode.” So that's better. Still internet-based, of course, but without the need to always be online. The game is out March 17 in the US…

Yeah! Ass Creed: Bruvhood Ditches UbiDRM?

The Steam pre-order page for the PC version of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (which we now know will be landing on the 18th of March) would appear to be missing something. The eagle-eyed tipsters at Beefjack have spotted that where the Steam page for Assassin's Creed 2 described the game's need for an permanent internet connection in capital letters and addressed the game's DLC in the…

Roming – Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Vid

Caw, Assassin's Creed 2 made me angrier than a game's done for ages. Loved the first game. Loved how hard and how tense it got towards the end. Then what does the second game do? It crumples up that difficulty like a paper bag, and makes the whole game a cakewalk. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood should be much more my kind of thing. The multiplayer looks…

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Impressions

Brotherhood's multiplayer is smart. The singleplayer might have you driving tanks and sinking ships, but the multiplayer remembers that you're all meant to be assassins and has a ton of fun with that. There’s some expositional stuff about how you’re all Templar agents training in the animus, but what it boils down to is that you choose from one of eight different Renaissance characters and…

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Now 2011

As the subject line says. Which is sad, but is just something that occasionally happens. As long as it's a proper delay, and not just one format being treated as an afterthoug... what? Oh no. Really? Man! Yeah, it's just the PC one that's been delayed until early next year. Ubisoft, you loveable funsters. You know how to make a dying format feel special. In…

Ubisoft’s E3 Line-Up Examined. In London.

RPS didn't got to E3. So E3 came to RPS, with Ubisoft showing their E3 demos in London yesterday. South London being slightly easier to reach than Los Angeles, I went along to have a look at what they have to offer us in the coming twelve months. Well, quite a bit. While ManiaPlanet will await a future date to look properly at it, there…
