Assassin's Creed Unity Will Be Going To World War II

It looked like the new-gen-only Assassin’s Creed game would be sticking only to the time period of the French Revolution. Nope. Somehow, lead character Arno will wind up smack dab in the middle of World War II, with machine guns and everything.


Arnold Schwarzenegger Impressions Make Assassin's Creed Better

So imagine if Schwarzenegger, Morgan Freeman, Alan Carr and David Attenborough all got together and played co-op in Assassin’s Creed Unity.


Your PC Must Be Très Magnifique For Assassin's Creed Unity

The next big Assassin’s Creed game, Unity, looks like it’s going to be very pretty and very French. Both are good things in my book — though given that I can’t actually speak French and my last name is “LeJacq”, I might be a tad biased. There’s one thing we can all agree on, however: its PC requirements are insane.


Mega-Producer Jade Raymond Leaves Ubisoft

Jade Raymond, best known for helping produce Assassin’s Creed and a number of other major Ubisoft games like Splinter Cell and Watch Dogs, has left the publisher after 10 years, Ubisoft announced today. Ubisoft’s Alexandre Parizeau will take her old role as head of Ubisoft Toronto, which Raymond founded and has managed since 2009.


Why There Are No Respawns In The Next Rainbow Six

It’s always fun to see how trends wax and wane in video games. Almost every shooter that’s come out in the past decade, for instance, has had to acknowledge the meteoric rise of Call of Duty and the fast-paced, twitchy sort of competitive gameplay it’s popularised.

Assassin's Creed: Rogue Coming To PC In Early 2015

Ubisoft's Game Developer 'Limbo'

One morning late last year, not long after Guillaume, a developer at Ubisoft Montreal, had finished working on his newest game, he was told he’d be moving offices. This was not particularly unusual for Ubisoft Montreal, a company that employs close to 3,000 people and works on upwards of ten new video games at a time, moving developers around constantly. What was unusual was where he was going.


If You Like Splinter Cell, Thank The Guy Who Played Sam Fisher

Fun fact: actor Michael Ironside, who voiced Tom Clancy stealth juggernaut Splinter Cell‘s main character, super spy murder dad Sam Fisher, nearly quit before the series even got off the ground.


The Crew Delayed Until December 2

Briefly: MMO-racer The Crew will be a few weeks late, arriving on December 2 instead of November 11, Ubisoft announced in a blog post. Good news is that this means there will be another closed beta test, which Ubisoft says they’re planning to carry out in November, this time on the PS4 and the Xbox One.


Assassin's Creed Unity Is Looking Very French

Ubisoft just releasee a snazzy new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity that emphasises the game’s story. Without spoiling anything, I think it’s safe to say the game is looking very French. That’s a good thing, in my book. I mean: who doesn’t want to try and kill Robespierre, am I right?
