1004 Connor

  Ubisoft just keeps posting those videos and screenshots.  Compared to other developers, Ubisoft has been extremely active in spreading the gospel of its latest marquee title, Assassin’s Creed III. That’s why you’ve been reading a lot about AC3 in gaming websites such as this one, and that may also be why the title will most likely be a huge success once released, regardless of platform.  Earlier in the day, Ubisoft released an interesting new […]

0928 Tea Party

  Ever wonder why the Boston Tea Party is referred to as such?  Ubisoft can give you the answer to that question in its latest trailer for Assassin’s Creed III.   The Boston Tea Party, in a nutshell, involved Boston residents refusing British goods – tea in particular – and throwing the goods into the Boston Harbor.  At that time, Massachusetts was still a British colony, and it is considered by most as one of […]

0924 AC3 2

More screenshots were revealed today by Ubisoft – nine, to be exact – as promotion continued for Ubi’s big fall release, Assassin’s Creed III.  These screens run the gamut of life in American Revolution-era New England, or in the case of some of the photos, death.  Here you can see some cool explosions courtesy of Revolution-era weaponry, soldiers preparing these weapons for battle, and even some actual stabbing.  There are also some quieter and/or less […]

0822 Ubi

If you’ve played Ubisoft titles such as Assassin’s Creed, you can definitely relate to the age-old problem of the always-online requirement for the DRM system.  One moment you’d be this close to completing a certain level of an Ubisoft game, or a certain quest or mission, then before you know it, your connection drops and you’re booted out of the server.    Then you start off with the sailor talk, quite understandable if you’ve invested […]

0830 AC3

    So far, so good for Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed III is a little less than three months away, but creative director Alex Hutchinson and company have been whetting our appetites with several great trailers and video commentaries.  There have been two trailers released this week – a Naval Warfare Walkthrough posted this Wednesday and one posted today, which discusses the finer points of American Revolution combat and the weapons lead character Connor Kenway […]

0822 Yves

We cannot deny that software piracy is an ongoing problem for game publishers and developers – it always is as it always has been.  But would you believe that Ubisoft’s ratio of legitimately sold PC game copies to those downloaded or acquired through illicit means is more than nine is to one?  It’s a staggering ratio, and according to the French company’s CEO Yves Guillemot, it’s very accurate as well.   All in all, only […]

0817 Fry

Whenever somebody refers to the “R” word – racism – in an interview, people sit up straight and pay attention.  Even if it’s an off-the-record remark, it suddenly becomes the main focus of the interview, and everything that people talk about when commenting on Internet blogs and forums.  That’s what happened to Assassin’s Creed III creative director Alex Hutchinson after he obliged CVG with a quick interview earlier today on Ubisoft’s next big multi-platform title. […]

PoP Zero 2

A new leak posted on the Ubisoft forums gave us a preview of what the future (or past) of the Prince of Persia serieswould look like.   The leaked screenshot, posted by a forum member called blueobelix, shows a character, possibly not the Prince, with his back turned, seemingly addressing a group of people from historical times.  The photo was supposed to be for the failed “PoP Zero 2” reboot, as indicated on the text […]

Earlier today, owners of Ubisoft titles such as Assassin’s Creed (all titles) and Heroes of Might and Magic were in a tizzy upon discovering some troubling news.  Apparently, uPlay’s browser plugin had been infiltrated by hackers – the backdoor discovered on the plugin would make it possible for these unsavory low-lives to install spyware, malware and other unfriendly programs on your computer’s system.  That would have also made it possible for hackers to install programs […]

Assassin's Creed III

  A leaked document from Ubisoft addressed to gaming retailer GameStop suggests that the French company is putting together a team of developers who would be creating post-release downloadable content (DLCs) for Assassin’s Creed III.   In essence, Ubisoft’s letter to GameStop was congratulatory in nature, thanking the retailer for helping them “assassinate announcement pre-order goals.”  As the letter further stated, “(Ubisoft is) currently in the process of creating a complementary development team that will […]
