Everything that’s wrong with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is clearly a very good game. Or at least, a very big game with an awful lot to do. The line is getting increasingly blurred in AAA's current obsession with impossibly large open worlds, that took everything we learned about compulsive playing from last decade's MMOsplosion and put them into single-player icon-tickers. It's a game I don't want to stop playing, certainly.…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey working on fix for AVX crashes

If your time with Assassin's Creed Odyssey has been spent muttering "More like Crashassin's Please Ohgodhelpme", beaming with pride in your wordplay while cussing out crash bugs in Ubisoft's new open-world murder simulator, relief may soon be at hand. Ubisoft said over the weekend that they've identified the cause of several crashes: CPUs which met the game's listed system requirements but don't include support for…

An underwater tour of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

I, like so many people, spent most of yesterday playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Except that by "playing" I mean "taking thousands of pictures of," because it is extremely pretty and has a good photo mode, and because I am very easily distracted. Thanks to Greece's gorgeous coastline, a lot of that photography took place in and around the sea. Come on in - the water's…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review

I have played, now, 30 hours of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which I think means I'm about half way through (the main story, that is, not the entire game, which is so vast it might as well be infinite when set against the free time most adults have). Odyssey is a curious mythic beast. Though there are additions to the core of Assassin’s Creed Oranges, they…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

When it comes to graphics performance, Assassin's Creed has always been a tough nut to crack on PC. Assassin's Creed Oranges was an absolute beast to get running smoothly when it came out last year, and it continues to be one of the most demanding games in my graphic cards benchmarking suite. This year's Ancient Greece-themed installment, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, is, thankfully, a little less…

Romances in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey are hilarious and messy

When I wrote about Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Monday it was mostly centered around the awesome power of Kassandra’s kick. It was a little bit undisguised thirst for Kassandra. I asked Graham if my review of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey could just be Kassandra fan fiction and he said he would love to publish fan fiction on RPS, which isn’t a no but isn’t a yes…

A tour of regular people having regular jobs in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

In Assassin's Creed Odyssey you play a stone cold bad ass. Kassandra (because let's be real: you're playing as Kassandra) walks without fear through Greece. Any person that steps to Kassandra, that person is getting a kicking. This confidence may account for Kassandra's healthy scepticism of some of the more bizarre aspects of Ancient Greek religion (e.g. is that lady really an Oracle delivering genuine…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey impressions: kick backwards into hell

I haven’t had a lot of time to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (a weekend and a bit) and it is also a very big game. Soon I will be able to give you an appropriately epic review, with a Chorus and mistaken identity and children murdering their parents. All that great Ancient Greek stuff. However, there are already some initial impressions that I think it’s…

10 PC games we’re still looking forward to in 2018

As we stare into the weary, craggy face of the final quarter of 2018, there is still a glimmer of hope. The games are not yet done. They will never be done. And the impending release of them, some close, some a little further away, stirs something within us. The delicate, easily crushed butterfly of excitement. We may catch it yet, to keep in our…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

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…

For Honor’s training hub aims to turn squires into knights

When you stack it up against just about any other major multiplayer game, medieval murderfest For Honor seems a little esoteric, but Ubisoft are still sure that the game has legs as a competitive scene - it just needs to remind the players how to run. In a major free update rolling out for the game tomorrow, For Honor is expanding with a series of official…

For Honor’s Starter Edition seeks to draw in fresh blood

Not to beat around the bush, but multiplayer medieval brawlathon For Honor clearly jumped the gun with its launch last year. Only now does the game have its technical kinks worked out, along with dedicated multiplayer servers. Major improvements all told, but considered by many to be too little, too late. Ubisoft aren't a company to give up so easily, and are attempting to draw some fresh…

For Honor’s dedicated servers roll out on February 19th

We'd previously reported that among a swathe of improvements coming to Ubisoft's struggling multiplayer brawler For Honor was support for static, dedicated servers, completely replacing the public hosting system that the game currently uses. We now know exactly when this game-changing improvement will be landing, and it's not far off: You'll be able to butt heads with the Vikings, Knights & Samurai in a much…

For Honor adding dedicated servers this season

Rainbow Six Siege might be Ubisoft's rising star in the multiplayer scene, but they're not quite ready to let go of For Honor yet, despite technical troubles and dwindling player-counts. Due to start this February, the Season 5 update for the game (dramatically named 'Age Of The Wolves'), will bring a lot of tweaks and changes to the game, says Ubi, including some heavily reworked…

How Is Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s PC Port?

Review code for the PC version of Assassin's Creed Syndicate [official site] activated this evening and I've spent the hours since playing through the opening sections and fiddling with various settings to see how it all holds together. In short, it runs beautifully and looks a treat. Details and early thoughts about my trip to the Big Smoke are below.

Now You See Her… Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Evie Video

Ubisoft have let loose a bit of Assassin's Creed Syndicate [official site] in a nice 10-minute playthrough video taking a look at the game's secondary protagonist Evie, twin to playable Dude Hero Jacob Frye and a sensibly dressed Master of Stealth in her own right, as she infiltrates the Tower of London. You can watch it all below.
