Gamescom 2014–Far Cry 4, Journey into Kyrat

Far Cry 3 blew me away and made me re-imagine how psychological open world games can be done and now Far Cry 4 appears to be breaking entirely new ground in this unique genre.

Rumour: Assassin’s Creed Unity only at 720p on PS4

Assassin’s Creed Unity is, without a doubt, one of this year’s biggest releases. Not only is it a soft reboot for the franchise, it’s also our first taste of a true next-generation Assassin’s Creed title. But will it be running at full HD by the time PS4 players we get their hands on it?

No more auto-fail in Assassin’s Creed Unity

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.

In Other News – 7 August 2014

It’s about damn time ION got some Mediterranean flavour. Zoe and Geoff have been teasing you all week, twisting words and getting you all excited for nothing. That’s not going to happen on my watch.

The Evolution Of – Prince Of Persia

I don’t think that there is anyone here who has not played at least one Prince Of Persia game. Whether it was the classic platformer, the revived Ubisoft version or that bizarre 3D incarnation of the game from 1998, Prince Of Persia has been one of the longest-running franchises out there. And my oh my, how it has grown.

Ubisoft is only threatening itself with Assassin’s Creed this year

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.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue collector’s edition revealed

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.

New Settlers gets co-op

Ubisoft is excited to tell us about their new Settlers game, Kingdoms of Anteria. Fans of the franchise love building their economies, but there are other new elements of the game that I'm not totally convinced that players will love.

How you’ll meet other people in The Division

It made a huge splash at E3 in 2013, but we still know very little about Ubisoft’s latest game to cash in on Tom Clancy’s name, The Division. It will be multiplayer focused, and in many ways sounds a bit like a post apocalyptic MMO. How will you meet up with other players within the game?

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue unveiled for last-gen consoles

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.

Kill honey badgers with friends in Far Cry 4

I'm looking at booking a holiday soon. You know, something to get away from it all. Somehow, I don't think Kyrat will be the best for tanning and lazing with a cocktail, but it certainly will transport gamers to a new place.

New screens leak for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

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.

Assassin’s Creed Unity spills the beans on characters, missions, story and more

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.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 still coming

I have been waiting for a follow up to Beyond Good and Evil for far too many years. The game itself was innovative and unique, plus it was a ton of fun. It seems the game has been stuck in development hell after being delayed due to poor sales. However, Ubisoft is still working on it.

Pre-purchase Far Cry 4 and Assassins Creed Unity on Steam for extra goodies

The crazy part of the gaming year is just getting closer and closer. Too many new games, such little time! Seeing as we’re not all made of money (I know I’m not), I’m going to assume we will all be shopping with value in mind, at least to some kind of extent. If you have a set list of games but too little cash, it can be difficult to choose. Steam has teamed up with Ubisoft to put together some pre-purchase incentives for their upcoming titles, Far Cry 4 and Assassins Creed Unity. Will they twist your arm?
