Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass Owners to Receive Free Game

Everyone to get apologetic DLC

Ubisoft has more or less admitted that Assassin’s Creed Unity launched in an unacceptable state, and is attempting to make up for that with free downloadable content. Everyone that's purchased the game will be able to grab the title’s Dead Kings add-on at no extra charge, while Season Pass owners will be offered...

Assassin's Creed Unity Patch Will Improve Framerate on PS4

Band aid

Well done for beta testing the game everyone; Assassin’s Creed Unity may resemble a finished product later this week. Ubisoft has announced that it will be launching a brand new PlayStation 4 patch for its plagued Parisian escapade tomorrow, which will improve the title’s frame rate – and fix a frightening number of bugs that somehow...

Review: Far Cry 4 (PlayStation 4)

Far Cry 4 (PlayStation 4)

Take a walk on the wild side

Far Cry 3 managed to blend a near perfect mix of open world and first-person shooter, taking players to the darker side of a Pacific paradise, where many of the inhabitants were the definition of insane. For its sequel, there’s a definite feeling that Ubisoft took the view 'if it’s not broken, don’t fix it', so Far...

Assassin's Creed Rogue (PlayStation 3)

A touch of frost

You’d be forgiven for branding Assassin’s Creed Rogue an afterthought, as its next-gen brother, Assassin’s Creed Unity, overshadowed its release. Although appearing as a cash-in for those still waiting to upgrade their PlayStation 3s, though, this is actually a solid instalment in Ubisoft’s historical franchise, bringing...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Unity Sails Past Black Flag's Launch Sales

Advanced Warfare still on top

There’s a great game in Assassin’s Creed Unity, but it’s obfuscated by bad bugs and glitches. To be fair, Ubisoft is working hard to fix things, and that’s already resulted in one major PlayStation 4 patch. However, upper-management won’t be too worried about the backlash to the game, as it’s outsold the...

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Patch Squashes Several Big Bugs

No improvements to performance, though

It occurred to us earlier this evening that Ubisoft could, in theory, blame Assassin’s Creed Unity’s various bugs and glitches on a fault in the Animus – providing it with the perfect plot device to explain away the title’s terrible launch. Fortunately, the French firm isn’t doing that, and is instead...

Assassin's Creed Unity (PlayStation 4)

Heads will roll

French publisher Ubisoft is on its home turf with Assassin's Creed Unity. With a sprawling recreation of 18th Century Paris to explore, the game does away with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's naval angle, and returns to a setting that evokes memories of Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. With the French revolu

Ubisoft's Aware That Arno Can Fall Through the Floor in Assassin's Creed Unity on PS4

Animus issues

Assassin’s Creed Unity is busted. You can play the game, for sure – but it’s not a particularly pleasant experience a lot of the time. If our ghastly glitches roundup didn’t already get that point across, then know that during a co-op session with associate editor Robert Ramsey last night, this author’s game slipped into a...

Four of Assassin's Creed Unity's Most Gloriously Ghastly PS4 Glitches

Temp scar

No one deserves to be singled out for their appearance, and Ubisoft clearly believes passionately in that sentiment. Recognising that the Hunchback of Notre Dame has been persecuted for centuries based on his unusual exterior, the French firm has decided that the ugly individual deserves some company – and so these Assassin’s Creed...

How Well Does Assassin's Creed Unity Actually Run on PS4?

Not quite a revolution

We're still working on our full review of Assassin's Creed Unity, but with all of this speculation as to how the game actually looks and runs on the PlayStation 4, we thought that it'd be a good idea to put forward a report on the matter. We're a reasonable way into the sandbox adventure, and by this point, we reckon that...

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Reviews Plot a Revolution

Paper tigers

Well, it wouldn’t be a new Ubisoft title without a bit of controversy, would it? Assassin’s Creed Unity has ruffled feathers for all of the wrong reasons over the past six months, with pundits complaining about everything from the game’s lack of female characters all the way through to those infamous parity comments. Along the...

Rocksmith 2014 Edition (PlayStation 4)

Shred school

As a lapsed guitar player, this wannabe rockstar was eagerly anticipating the release of Rocksmith 2014 Edition on the PlayStation 4. With two mistreated instruments decorated in dust, Ubisoft’s tutor promised a much needed excuse to wipe them down and get them back into action – but does this next-gen port squeal like Slash or hit...

Arno-body got time for that

As you are no doubt painfully aware, Assassin's Creed Unity will be free-running its way onto the PlayStation 4 very soon. The title, which has been developed for next-gen consoles exclusively, is the first in the long-running series to feature co-op, and this highly melodramatic launch trailer shows that element off...

Here's Everything You Could Want to Know About Assassin's Creed Unity in 7 Minutes

To be Arno to be

We all knew this was coming eventually, and with Assassin's Creed Unity not far off, publisher Ubisoft must have decided that today was the day to drop a seven minute trailer which encompasses just about all of the title's features. From the city of Paris to co-op play, it's essentially all you need to know about the current-gen...
