Never mind the Arkhamverse, the only good Batman game is Assassin’s Creed 2

Suicide Squad’s descent into live-service hell only accelerates an inevitable process of diminishing returns. So, the long awaited next foray into the Arkhamverse, Suicide Squad, looks like a pretty miserable experience from what we’ve seen so far. A screenshot doing the rounds on Twitter puts the spotlight on a dreary looking set of stat modifiers that reads like a tech manual for transistors. The fact that it’s a live-service looter shooter with no true single-player mode (‘co-op with bots’ doesn’t count), and the horrifying red flag of requiring a constant internet connection to run, shows just how far Rocksteady has…

Ubisoft will announce multiple Assassin’s Creed titles during Ubisoft Forward – report

More than just Mirage and Infinity, apparently. Ubisoft will host its Ubisoft Forward showcase this weekend, and it seems the company plans to announce multiple Assassin’s Creed projects. The company has already promised to discuss Assassin’s Creed Mirage during the showcase, and it’s possible it will touch upon Assassin’s Creed Infinity as well. Ubisoft promised previously that additional information regarding “the future” of the Assassin’s Creed franchise would be shared during Ubisoft Forward, and rumor has it the company will announce three more projects for the series. According to Tom Henderson, the Assassin’s Creed games we will hear about have…

Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is real, and we’ll find out more next week

Leaked Assassin’s Creed game Mirage is real, Ubisoft have confirmed, and they’re planning to show more of it at next week’s Ubisoft Forward event. All we know for sure so far is that the game exists, it’s definitely called Mirage, and returns to the Middle Eastern setting of the original Assassin’s Creed. I rather like the blue highlights to the assassin’s robes in this one. Read more

Assassin’s Creed is getting its own whiskey

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. Spiced rum and vodka on the way, too. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Assassin’s Creed, Antheum Studios is releasing a special edition of whiskey specifically for the franchise. You read that right. Whiskey. Not the usual energy drink with videogame branding. That said, you can mix the two readily and it doesn’t taste too awful. Trust me on that. Anyway, my weird concoctions aside, Antheum Studios will release the Assassin’s Creed 15th Anniversary Straight Bourbon Whiskey this August –…

Ubisoft has delayed an unannounced game and it’s said to be Assassin’s Creed Rift

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. We will have to wait a bit longer for the “smaller unannounced premium game.” Ubisoft has delayed one of its upcoming games, and a new report states it is the next Assassin’s Creed. Earlier this week, Ubisoft announced in its Q1 fiscal year 2023 call to investors it has delayed a “smaller unannounced premium title.” A release date is to be determined. According to Bloomberg, the delayed game is the next Assassins Creed which reportedly stars Valhalla’s Basim and is…

You can play the best Assassin’s Creed game from today on PS Plus Premium

Ubisoft’s best entry in the long-running Assassin’s Creed series can be downloaded now, for anyone on PS4 or PS5. You should play it. The tide was against Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag from the start. Coming out just one year after the disastrous, nearly franchise-ending reception of Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Flag needed to prove that the parkour-loving, history-altering tastes of the series were still relevant. That players should still care about the tired Assassins versus Templars beef that had, at this point, become the core narrative of five games. That there was still an appetite for the icon vomit…

You won’t be able to redownload Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD from September

Historical spin-off port Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD could well end up totally unplayable for people who own it. At the start of July, the publisher shared 15 getting-on-a-bit games they intended to shut down online services for, including access to bought DLC. Now, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, Space Junkies and Silent Hunter 5 have already been delisted from Steam at Ubisoft’s request, and won’t be accessible from September 1st. Read more

A streamer beat every mainline Assassin’s Creed game without taking any damage

That’s twelve games all in all, certainly nothing to sniff at. An Assassin’s Creed streamer has managed to achieve the pretty impressive feat of beating all mainline games without taking a single bit of damage. Video games are obviously a breeding ground for challenge, and in games with health, managing to not take a single hit is certainly one of the bigger ones. Now, streamer and YouTuber Hayete Bahadori has been able to do just that, with all 12 mainline Assassin’s Creed games (thanks Kotaku). Bahadori completed this months long challenge in April, uploading the second part of his Assassin’s…

Ubisoft’s Six-Year Development Hell Pirate Game Leaks In New Footage

Narrated test footage for Skull and Bones has leaked online, showing off a big part of the blockbuster’s transformation since it was last officially shown at E3 2018. It’s pretty and also looks like a textbook modern Ubisoft game. Players will collect blueprints, loot materials, and build up their infamy rank to get bigger, better ships.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has earned over $1 billion, free trial coming next week

In its Q3 2022 call to investors, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the most lucrative release in the Assassin’s Creed series to date. According to Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot, revenue for the game surpassed $1 billion as of December 2021. It is the first game in the series to reach such a sum. The game has been a big hit since it was released in 2020, and during its first week of availability, it sold-through more units than any other Assassin’s Creed game during the same period. It is also the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever, driven…

The original Assassin’s Creed trilogy would have ended with Desmond and Lucy leaving on a spaceship

To boldly go.. okay, you know the rest. The ending to the third Assassin’s Creed game was originally intended to end quite differently, according to interviews with staffers that worked on the titles and conducted by a Ph.D. student. In a paper written by Lars de Wildt, who researches conspiracy theories, religion, and other beliefs in digital media culture, the original ending to Assassin’s Creed 3 would have seen Desmond and Lucy leave Earth on a spaceship – the plan being to continue the human race elsewhere after the end of the world in 2012. Like a modern-day Adam and…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will make you re-install the whole game for its next update

Ubisoft is releasing a new update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla next week that’ll make you uninstall the whole game before playing. It’s frankly a miracle you can fit most of England and a large swathe of Scandinavia onto a hard drive in the first place, even if it does take up a massive load of space. But if you’re concerned that Ubisoft’s latest viking saga, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, is occupying too much space on your disk, there’s some good news ahead. Ahead of title update 1.4.1, Ubisoft has warned anyone that wants to keep playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that they…
