How ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ Could Help Rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral 

Assassin’s Creed: Unity Has Been Downloaded 3 Million Times Since Notre-Dame

Since the Notre-Dame de Paris fire, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity has seen a pretty large resurgence in popularity. In the wake of the fire, Ubisoft donated 500,000 euros to the restoration effort, offered up its 3D scans of the building for reconstruction, and made Assassin’s Creed: Unity free to download on PC. Because of that, the game […]

Assassin’s Creed Unity is Being Positively Review Bombed

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Unity had mixed reviews upon launch, but after the Notre-Dame fire, things have been changing around. For each of the Assassin’s Creed games, Ubisoft takes incredibly detailed 3D maps of various landmarks to provide some insanely realistic city maps. I’ve used my personal knowledge of Rome, Venice, and Florence to navigate around in both […]

Ubisoft Has Made Assassin’s Creed Unity Free After Notre-Dame

Ubisoft has let fans know that they’ll be taking a couple of steps toward helping rebuild the Notre-Dame Cathedral this week.

How ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ Could Help Rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral

The world watched in horror as the 13th century Parisian landmark of Notre Dame cathedral burned. 

Words fail to really convey the emotions while watching the conflagration engulf such an iconic place of not only worship but peace and awe. According to officials, the fire was stopped before it could reach the twin belfry, which […]

Ubisoft, Politics, and Far Cry 5: Bleeding Cool Games Chatter Episode 3

Far Cry 5 is set to hit at a very interesting time in American politics, but it does raise a number of questions about developer Ubisoft Montreal’s history with political commentary in previous Far Cry games, the Assassin’s Creed series, and even in Watch Dogs and Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The questions we had were many, including things like “who thought […]

Assassin’s Creed Unity And Rogue Shipped 10 Million Units Combined Last Year

Assassin’s Creed is one of the most bankable franchises in video games, with Ubisoft selling million of copies of each iteration year in, year out. That doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon either. During an investor call (via Eurogamer), Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced that Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue shipped 10 million […]

Assassin’s Creed, Alien: Isolation And The Last Of Us Up For WGA Award

Consistently in gaming, one of the strangest nomination lists each year comes from one of the most prestigious organisations in entertainment. Did you know that the Writer’s Guild of America hand out awards for writing in video games? Well, they do and it is usually an odd affair. This is because in order to be considered, […]

New Assassin’s Creed Mega Bloks Sets Are Now For ‘Adult Collectors’

There was a weird story that came out on the tail end of last year, that Mega Bloks were going to be making several Assassin’s Creed sets. This was weird because at the time, Ubisoft explained they wanted to bring Assassin’s Creed to a younger audience that couldn’t play the games. It’s important to point […]

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Dead Kings DLC Launches Next Week

All things considered, I did actually enjoy Assassin’s Creed Unity a fair bit. It didn’t build on any of the great ground work put down by Black Flag and it infamously had/has technical issues, but I did generally enjoy my time with the game. That’s why I’m interested in seeing what the Dead Kings DLC […]

Assassin’s Creed Is Headed To Victorian England

By Patrick Dane The Assassins are coming to the big smoke. The annual, history-trotting franchise is still fresh from the releases of Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, but we now know where next year’s trip is headed. For me, I’m not going to have to go very far. According to Kotaku, Assassin’s Creed […]

Assassin’s Creed Unity Review – Liberté, Egalité, Négligé

By Patrick Dane I’m slowly coming to the realization that I like the Assassin’s Creed franchise again. That’s a surprise to me since I swore off the series after the unsatisfying mess that was Assassin’s Creed 3. That all changed with the fantastic Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag last year. For the first time in […]
