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.

I love the Assassin's Creed franchise, but I have some gripes. I mean, I don't mind tailing a guy (it's irritating, but understandable at times), but I hate getting completely de-synchronized when spotted. According to new details, the game is using new gen abilities to also enhance the AI.

Ubisoft is pulling something bold this holiday season. Instead of releasing the same title for both generations of consoles, they’ve instead opted to make two separate titles, both of which act as core releases. It sounds like a risky idea; one that could leave fans of the franchise confused and frustrated at the idea of deciding which one to pick up.

We’ve got a certain amount of love for collector’s editions here at Lazygamer. And by love, I mean undying hatred for people who can afford them and to hell with the fact that they are by and large superfluous hunks of unnecessary plastic. There’s not one, but two new Assassin’s Creed games out this year, and you can bet that Ubisoft is going to double down animal-style on the special editions. Get your wallets out, and prepare to set sail.

With Evolve joining a growing list of games who are now making 2015 the new 2014, you might be forgiven for thinking that October is now going to be an easier month for choosing games. You’d also be completely wrong, because October is still absolutely crazy with new releases.

There’s going to be two very different Assassin’s Creed titles this year. We’ve seen Unity in all of its next-generation French glory, but what about a game for those who have yet to make the leap? Rogue is the answer to that question, and it has more of my attention than Unity does currently. That probably has something to do with a certain Templar Darth Vader though.

Details on Assassin’s Creed Unity may be flowing like wine at an office party, but the secrets behind the old-gen game Assassin’s Creed: Rogue are still locked up tighter than the taxman’s grip on your salary. Here’s a bunch of new screens, however, to get you to question everything and permit nothing.

Barring a certain protagonist who had an entire forest stuck up his backside, Assassin’s Creed has featured a likeable cast of heroes. From Altair to Edward Kenway, each character has had their own personality, with a distinctive attitude and approach to being a pain in in the arse for the Templar order. Expect Assassin’s Creed’s Arno Victor Dorian to be a very educated, yet rebellious, new addition to the game.

Hello gamers. Look at your location, now back to me, now back at your location, now back to me. Sadly, you’re not in San Diego, but if you stopped living in South Africa and got some plane tickets, you could be at San Diego Comic-Con. Look down, back up, you’re on a boat! Alright fine you’re not on a boat, I just wanted you to pretend you had a shot at visiting the San Diego Comic-Con. Ubisoft are putting together a pretty rad PR event. The expo will be getting its own Assassins Creed styled parkour course.

Seven years. In video game terms, that’s a lifespan that is equivalent to a sneaky fart in an elevator. And yet in such a short amount of time, Ubisoft has managed to create one of the biggest franchises on the planet. Games, books, comics, action figures and more have been born out of Assassin’s Creed. And over the years, it has evolved into something magnificent.
