Watch_Dogs, Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. There's something in common between all three of those games, aside from the fact that they've all been housed under Ubisoft's name. Mega Produce Jade Raymond has had her hands in all of those pies, but today she's announced her departure from Ubisoft.
Somehow, when I think of voice actors, I imagine that they'll be similar to hand models - that the part in use is the only really beautiful part of them. However, the voice actors behind Assassin's Creed Unity are also incredibly good looking, and offer some unique insights into the story of the game. We're able to add to those hints from a chat with Leslie Phord-Toy at rAge.
Ubisoft has come under a ton of fire after trying to avoid the entire resolutiongate debate last week. Fans claimed that the Ps4 version in particular had suffered a downgrade in order to keep parity between both current-gen consoles. That may not be true, as one Ubisoft developer claims the game could never reach 1080p on Sony's console.
As the last-generation Assassin's Creed game this year, Assassin's Creed Rogue got more than a little flak for not also releasing on PC. Now Ubisoft has announced that the game will also be coming for the PC master race early next year.
Assassin's Creed Unity was delayed by two weeks. After originally announced a launch date of 31 October, the game is now coming 14 November. I know that I can only get so much done in two weeks, so what will the crew at Ubisoft be busy with in that time period? Mostly bug fixing and balancing.
Certain games create muscle memories - there are combinations of buttons that are held or tapped in order for a certain effect and doing so becomes completely habitual. It is this very muscle memory that has Assassin's Creed creators worried that there may be some transitional difficulties for long-term fans of the franchise.
We learned earlier today a bit more about the story for Assassin's Creed Unity. However, some of the best experiences in Assassin's Creed games are found in the side missions - you can meet some interesting characters and go on cool adventures. The new iteration in the franchise is no exception.
The resolution and frame rate at which we play games has become one of the most heavily debated topics ever since the dawn of current-gen consoles. It's all about how much better the PS4 can handle games over the Xbox One, something which has really worked against Microsoft. Well Ubisoft want to avoid all of this fuss, so they're making Unity run identically across the board.
Sure, Assassin's Creed Unity looks fantastic and will change the way you play Assassin's Creed games. But there's something missing still. It just don't have the cuteness factor. But this video does and it will force the oohs and aaahs out of you if it's the last thing it does.
As an Assassin’s Creed fan, I’m really being spoilt for choice this year. There’s not one, but two very different games hitting shelves in December, with Unity set for current-gen and Rogue aiming at keeping older console players happening. One would expect that both would be coming to PC too, but that’s not the case. For now at least.
Assassin's Creed Unity is coming and it's bringing co-op to the sneaky stabby experience. I really enjoyed the mission I did for the Gamescom demo, and here it has been recreated in video form with full commentary.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity is a new start for the franchise when it releases later this year. It’s a PC and new-gen only game, with new visuals and gameplay ideas. But that doesn’t mean that the older generation of consoles will be left out this year, as the series takes one final stab on a pair of platforms that helped shape it. And this time, the game has lived long enough to see itself become the villain.
Earlier this year October was looking like a real cluster...mess. There were games coming out every week, with some major titles even sharing the same release day. Game after game has been delayed, slimming down October a little bit. Yesterday, it just got thinner.
I was lucky enough to go hands-on with Assassin's Creed Unity during Gamescom. There are some really cool features to the game that make it even more fun when cooperating - and you can even be a fully animated woman if you go into disguise.
Assassin’s Creed is jumping into the new generation with Assassin’s Creed Unity, but not all people have made the leap into the new generation and Ubisoft is catering for them with Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Rogue also takes place in the Americas and will help to round off the Kenway saga. While the story sounds truly interesting and innovative, my hands-on time with the game was a bit less so.
