Developing for the system is a dream come true
Out with Patriots, in with Siege
Back in 2011, Gameinformer had the pleasure of unveiling the next Rainbow Six unto the world, which was called Patriots. With a trailer released during the Spike VGA 2011 show and a full cover story from the aforementioned magazine, Ubisoft Montreal seemed to have its sights set on continuing with this darker,...
Developing for the system is a dream come true
Sony’s first-party studios have been eager to laud the platform holder’s strategy with the PlayStation 4 over the past couple of days, but we haven’t heard much from third-parties just yet. Fortunately, Canadian outfit Ubisoft Montreal has jumped aboard the praise train, describing the next...
We dinged Assassin's Creed: Revelations a couple of points when we reviewed the game last year because it felt a little stale
Narratively it was still a worthwhile entry into the series, but for large parts of the game, it felt like we were going through the motions. Regardless, publisher Ubisoft is delighted with the title's performance at retail. "Assassin's Creed is an incredible franchise..
Ubisoft must be getting a taste for what it feels like to lose a creative director
Just two years after the departure of series creator Patrice Desilets in 2010, Assassin's Creed: Revelations' creative director Alexandre Amancio has left Ubisoft Montreal in order to pursue a career at Canadian marketing firm, Cossette. Amancio has been an employee at Ubisoft Montreal for seven years, serving as an..

With Rainbow Six: Patriots not set to hit store shelves until 2013, it was no surprise to see the game's coming out party restricted to CG

You can't beat a good launch trailer can you? Take this final slice of footage from Assassin's Creed: Revelations
It's packed with cinematic music, massive spectacles and well-timed one-shots from protagonist Ezio. After spending just 2 minutes watching the trailer, we're now chomping at the bit for Ubisoft's latest. It's all rather clever when you stop to think about it. Get yourself in an..

Despite being on an annual cycle, Assassin's Creed: Revelations is still keen to try something new
Ubisoft Montreal has revealed that its latest entry in the acrobatic stealth series will feature first-person sequences inspired by Inception. Its definitely a departure, and very cool I think. You get a lot of information about Desmond and his backstory by completing these [first-person..

Keen to get a glimpse of Assassin's Creed: Revelations' multiplayer component? Yeah, us too

And while we're not expecting Revelations to reinvent the wheel, we are looking forward to a spot of refinement and a good lavishing of new maps. There's two new trailers after the jump. Don't we..
Hollywood insiders have slammed Sony and Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed movie deal, labelling it "ridiculous"

Y'know, back in 2007 when the original Assassin's Creed got criticised for having no variety, Ubisoft must have taken it really hard
Every subsequent Assassin's Creed game has been packed with objectives, markers and things to do. Why stop when you're winning? No matter how much this latest Assassin's Creed trailer attempts to dress things up, it's pretty clear that the latest iteration of the game..
How much "French-ness" can you tolerate this morning? If your threshold is low, then we recommend returning to this trailer when it's more tolerable
Because this Rayman Origins trailer is ultimately very exciting, you just have to fight through all the "French-ness" to get to the exciting part. Seriously though, the game looks ace.
Sony Pictures is on the verge of signing a deal with Ubisoft in order to bring the Assassin's Creed franchise to the big screen, so reports claim

Stealthily confirmed in a post over on the PlayStation Blog, Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin's Creed: Revelations will ship with full stereoscopic 3D support on PS3 for those with compatible televisions

It's going to be sad to see Ezio go
Even though he's somewhat overlooked, we actually think he's one of the best characters in games right now. Rounded, tough and well written. It's great to see the character get his dues in the build-up to his concluding story, Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Listen to him narrate the game's latest trailer after the jump.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations isn't out yet
But while that game promises to wrap up the story of Ezio and Altair, Ubisoft's already turned its attention to modern-day protagonist Desmond and his story. Which according to Revelations producer Alexandre Amacio will conclude before December 2012. In Assassins Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012,..

There's a lot of murdering in Ubisoft's latest trailer for Assassin's Creed: Revelations
And that's probably an understatement. There's a lot of murdering. Don't tell the Daily Mail. Or GiantBomb.
Finally someone's decided to take advantage of the additional space the Blu-ray disc provides
Ubisoft has announced that all those people purchasing Assassin's Creed: Revelations on PS3 will get a free copy of Assassin's Creed included on the game's disc.

Look video game developers: it can be done
Far Cry 3 might not be the tranquil experience its environments hint at, but at least the game's packed with colour and vibrancy. Proof that first-person shooters can consist of more than the colour brown. And grey.</em> Joystiq's got the full set of screens.
The pressure on Ubisoft's marketing team with each new Assassin's Creed title must be immense
The publisher has developed a reputation for producing breath-taking trailers. Thankfully it has excelled itself with Assassin's Creed: Revelations' GamesCom trailer.

There'll be multiple ways to tackle objectives in Far Cry 3, as evidenced by the "Alternate" gameplay demonstration Ubisoft's released today
This mixes up the shooting and stabbing of the original E3 demonstration, with zip-lines and sniper rifles. The game still looks glorious, with bright colours bringing the tropical setting to life. While we're intrigued by the various gameplay options afforded..
"We know you've been asking about the beta," Ubisoft wrote on its Twitter regarding Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Have we? "We're excited to announce that the MP beta will be launching in January 2012." Glad that's cleared up then, eh? Update @ 14:28BST: Ubisoft has told VG247 that the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier multiplayer beta will be an XBOX 360 exclusive. We can all continue not caring..
We think there was a bit of a collective groan throughout the gaming community when Ubisoft announced it was bringing Assassin's Creed back for a third consecutive year
But its hard to argue with the quality of the games Ubisoft puts out. The narrative stays consistently compelling, and the gameplay gets more and more ambitious with each iteration. This walkthrough of Ubisoft's E3 demo details the..
It was a pretty bold move by Ubisoft to spend the first few minutes of its Far Cry 3 demo focusing on a monologue by a man completely off his rocker
But it worked really well, setting the tone for the upcoming first-person shooter brilliantly. You can check out the full Far Cry 3 demo above.</em>
GameStop has announced that those who pre-order Assassin's Creed: Revelations through the American mega-chain will get their pre-order upgraded to the Signature Edition of the game automatically

Punctuating a frankly bizarre E3 press conference, Ubisoft just announced Far Cry 3 for release on PlayStation 3 in 2012

As is customary for the series, it's a pretty amazing slice of CGI. We've embedded it above because we're lovely like that. The game's out November 15th.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations sees Ezio follow in the foot-steps of Altair on a journey to recover five ancient seals that hold the keys to the future of the Assassins brotherhood". The path will take Ezio to Constantinople, where he'll face an army of Templars threatening..
GameInformer's lifted the lid on some of the characters in the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Revelations
According to the publication, Ubisoft intends to make the multiplayer in Revelations a bit more meaningful than in Brotherhood, meaning that the full roster of characters will all have grounding in the single-player campaign. Characters announced thus far include the Guardian, Sentinel and..
Splinter Cell 6 is a real video game if this image detected by GamerZines is anything to go on
The pictures — posted bizarrely by audio manufacturer Blue Sky — show a recording studio at Ubisoft Montreal with "SC6" logos plastered all over the place. There's also what appears to be a splash screen featuring Sam Fisher and night-vision goggles. There's really very little to go on from..
Ezio was old by the end of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
But in Assassin's Creed: Revelations — the next title in the Ubisoft developed franchise — he's proper old. According to details published in the latest issue of GameInformer, the Italian stallion will be knocking on 50 at the start of Revelations. Obviously considering the time-period the game's set in, he's old. There's no real word on..
Let's get straight to the bit you want to know: Ezio is back
Ubisoft has officially confirmed the existence of Assassin's Creed: Revelations, due for release on PlayStation 3 this November. The game will mark the conclusion of Ezio's story, which is now being dubbed as a "trilogy" by Ubisoft like it was intended all along. (Hint: it probably wasn't.) Apparently Ezio will follow the..
The best thing about the months prior to E3 is when publishers and developers alike accidentally leak their own information
We'll never forget when Sony uploaded an episode of Qore a few days early, giving everyone the scoop on the PSPgo before it was even announced. While not quite as excessive, it does seem like Ubisoft has just accidentally leaked the name of its next Assassin's Creed game. It's..
Mass Effect 2 took the top-prize at last night's gaming BAFTAs, scooping the gong for game of the year
Sony and Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain wasn't far behind though, winning three awards for its story, technical innovation and original music.

Fancy grabbing all the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood content rounded up into one neat little package -- including the recently announced Da Vinci Disappearance DLC? Of course you do

Hooray, more Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood DLC is on the way
Ubisoft's just confirmed that The Da Vinci Disappearance will launch at the end of March for an undecided sum on the PlayStation Network.

The video game BAFTA nominations are out, and Ubisoft's brilliant Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is leading the charge with a whopping seven nominations
It's up for Best Game, as well as Action, Artistic Achievement and more. Heavy Rain managed to scoop up a respectable six nominations, battling in similar categories to Assassin's Creed. Hit the jump for the full run-down. ActionAssassins Creed..
Probably the most interesting tid-bit from Ubisoft's financial call today -- aside from the publisher's 'dancing game' business being a success of 'hammertime' proportions -- was the news that Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has surpassed 6
5 million units shipped. That's a helluva lot of back-stabbing. We always thought it was mankind's guilty pleasure.
Ubisoft's been good to us
They've already given us two free Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood packs, and now they want something in return. The publisher's promised another free AssBro multiplayer map will be released once the franchise's official Facebook page hits one million "Likes". Basically, do some of Ubisoft's marketing for them and they'll give you a new map. At the time of writing..
New game modes and new maps are the order of the day in Ubisoft's latest free DLC add-on for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
If ever you needed an excuse to stab people in the back, now you've got one.
It's only been a week, but already Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has raked in sales of over one million units in Europe alone
The franchise has now sold a whopping 20 million units across three titles. Ubisoft anticipates the series will have hit 30 million by the end of next year. If you compare [the 1m in a week] with last years ACII sales this is a big jump so its a great..
Ubisoft's a batch of DLC for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood due to launch on December 14th on the PlayStation 3
The pack, known as the Animus Project 1.0, will be available for free. The update includes a brand-new game mode and map for multiplayer. Advanced Alliance will make the game's standard mode more difficult than the original with three teams of two. The new map's located on Mont..
While this Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood trailer "adventure" amounts to little more than clicking on videos, it does take you on a pretty cool "journey" while giving you a taste of the game's opening mission
One section of the interactive trailer sees MSN's homepage being blown to bits by cannon fire. It's a neat touch and certainly a unique way to provide a launch trailer. We've embedded the start..
Ubisoft always pick amazing tunes for their Assassin's Creed trailers
This multiplayer launch trailer for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's multiplayer component is no exception. It just oozes "cool", doesn't it? Anyone really excited for some Assassin's Creed multiplayer? We thoroughly enjoyed the beta.
We're letting Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood slide because we think it looks amazing. That said, we're not sure Ubisoft can continue making yearly installment of Assassin's Creed. The franchise needs space to breathe and grow, so it's a little worrying to hear Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot touting more Assassin's Creed for 2011. There will be something around Assassins, Guillemot said when..
Ubisoft's released Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's launch trailer and, as expected, it's properly amazing. The trailer sets up Ezio's vengeance story, with him promoted as the leader of the assassins. There are plenty of contraptions featured in the trailer, delivered no doubt by returning favourite Leonardo Da Vinci. Heck, there's even a sex scene. Brotherhood's going to be amazing then?..
Meet the Hellequin (after a few moments of awkward black screen), one of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's unlockable multiplayer characters
The knife-wielding crowd pleaser can only be unlocked using Ubisoft's in-game rewards method "UPlay", so you'll need to pay attention to this tutorial video for more on that. The character looks cool though. We're really excited for Assassin's Creed:..
Guess who's signed up to take part in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood? You guessed? Yeah, we did too
The cross-over cotinues after the jump... Yup, that's totally Raiden from the Metal Gear franchise. Just like Altair was in Metal Gear Solid 4, Raiden's set to appear as an unlockable costume in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. We reckon Ezio's a dead lock for Metal Gear Solid: Rising, don't you?
The Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer beta was one of the most exciting things we've played all year
We loved it, and we literally cannot wait to plough hundreds of hours into the component when the full release drops next month. Of course, being a beta, there was plenty about the multiplayer trial that didn't quite feel right. Ubisoft's been listening to feedback and has compiled a list of..
Ubisoft's pre-release hype for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has reached a peak as far as we're concerned
We're sure they've got plenty more lined up, but even after fawning over the game's excellent multiplayer component, we didn't feel as hyped about the package as we do now. Ubisoft sure know how to pick the tunes for their Assassin's Creed trailers; we've actually no idea who's behind this..
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood looks absolutely brilliant
Our hands on time with the beta has us more pumped for the multiplayer component than any other game due to release this year. And while there's only one weekend of stealth fragging left (it's due to close on October 18th), Ubisoft has dropped the full set of Brotherhood trophies for you to peruse. Sadly, we can confirm flags and feathers are..
If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber in the US, you'll now be able to jump into the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer beta
Us European folks have been playing it for a while, and we've gotten pretty good at stabbing people in the back — so just be careful out there guys.
Online multiplayer has slowly been getting more predictable
While every game attempts to gazump Call Of Duty by offering the exact same suite of features, we've been slowly playing less and less attention. Multiplayer used to be a feature that got us vastly excited about any game that supported it. Nowadays we spend 5-10 minutes seeing how a title...
Ubisoft's announced a Facebook "companion game" for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood which is due to launch today
The web-based game - entitled Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy - will launch within Facebook and will provide unlock real content in the full version of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. In addition, playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will "unlock up to 25 exclusive missions" in..
If you're in Europe and are a PlayStation Plus subscriber -- you don't really need to watch this trailer
It tells you what makes up the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta but, hey, you may aswell be playing it rather than watching it. We're serious. Head to the PlayStation Store and download the blasted thing! Preferably now. We'll have our thoughts on the beta later in the week.
A little download ticker on our PS3 reckons the PlayStation Plus naysayers are feeling a little blue today
The Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer beta is live for European PlayStation Plus subscribers right now; so if you're a member (or planning to become one), hit up the Plus section of the PlayStation Store now to get downloading the 3GB trial. The beta features a bunch of characters and..
The European PlayStation Blog's revealed that PlayStation Plus subscribers will get access to the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta a week early, starting from Monday 27th September
Everyone else will gain entry on the 4th October. The beta will include a two modes and a couple of maps. The PlayStation Blog promises to detail the full contents of the beta in the coming days. There's more..
For as much as we like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's protagonist, Ezio, the man's a bit of a psycho isn't he? This trailer alone proves that
It shows the Italian kicking some serious ass; throwing spears at people and shooting them on the ground with a close-range crossbow. We don't think we'd speak to him if we happened to cross him in the street.
American gamers expecting to get some time with Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's multiplayer may go to bed disappointed tonight; Ubisoft's told Joystiq that the beta has been pushed back
Seeing as the European beta's due to go live on October 4th, it seems likely the beta will go live worldwide.
Ubisoft's released the GamesCom demo for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and, frankly, it looks fantastic
Get over the creepy narration and you'll get an idea of just how much depth is being added to the new game. One new mechanic has you recruiting and managing a number of Assassins, whom you can send on various missions throughout Europe. It's similar to the management aspects in Metal Gear Solid:..
This Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood developer's diary is supposed to give the game's narrative some context
Unfortunately, all we could see was those ridiculous robes. Sniping aside, the game sounds fascinating, and we're actually super-stoked about the multiplayer components too. Sounds like it's going to be a great package. We can't wait.
As Limited Editions get more elaborate, they are also getting a lot less predictable
Back in the day you used to get a steel case and DVD, now you get night-vision goggles and bookends. This Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood package proves our point — it includes a jack-in-the-box. Doesn't get much more elaborate than that now does it? For your $99.99 you'll also get a copy of the game's soundtrack,..
How do you like exclusives? Yeah, we love 'em
How about exclusives within exclusives? Yeah, not so much. The Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta is an example of an exclusive within an exclusive — sure, it's cool for those of us batting for the Sony team that Ubisoft's made the beta locked to the PlayStation 3. The problem for US citizens, is that...
There's a lot of hype behind Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's multiplayer
And so there should be, the game just walked away with the E3 Game Critics Award for multiplayer. Rightfully so in our opinion. The thing that's making Brotherhood's multiplayer look so enticing is its originality. With virtually every other multiplayer title trying to play catch-up to Modern Warfare 2 - Brotherhood's..
Some might not be too happy with the addition of multiplayer into the Assassin's Creed franchise, but it seems Ubisoft have put a lot of work into making the experience both unique and relevant
So we're totally happy with the idea of multiplayer being a fundamental part of the Assassin's Creed franchise going forward. And it seems like Ubisoft are too. Speaking with Videogamer.com, associate..
When we first heard the news about Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood we were a little confused
"Another Assassin's Creed game?" we exclaimed. "Already?" Our fears were elevated when we found out that the game was to have a multiplayer focus. "MULTIPLAYER!?! In Assassin's Creed? Now you're joking, right?" Turns out our fears were completely unwarranted, however. The..
We had felt that Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood might be too early
It was only last year that we were singing the praises of Assassin's Creed II, and now, just 12 months later, we're getting another game? Weird. But this Brotherhood footage has changed our mind. While the single-player campaign appears to routed in the same gameplay and graphics engine as last year's game, new features will..

We love Assassin's Creed trailers
They're amazing. This CGI teaser for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is no exception, revealing Ezio's no-longer a lone-wolf, as he calls on the Brotherhood to kick some serious ass. Consider us ridiculously excited for this game; Assassin's Creed II was a masterpiece. The trailer concludes with a November 16th date, which confirms the release window for the game in..
The creative director of both Assassin's Creed titles, Patrice Desilets, has left Ubisoft for a "creative break from the industry", GameInformer report

British Playstation mag PSM3 has some of the first details on Ubisoft's upcoming multiplayer Assassin's Creed title, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
CVG's being stingy passing on the details, but apparently yes, the eight-player multiplayer mode will have you silently sneaking around small sub-sections of Italian cities assassinating each other. Will it work? Hmm. The single-player focuses on..
We've always felt that Assassin's Creed could be darker
We know the games are already fairly nasty as they are, but we wouldn't mind seeing them pass into a more psychologically dark direction. This new screen from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood doesn't really confirm anything like that, but it does show a scary man wearing a mask while sticking a syringe in someone's neck. Lovely. Still no clue as..
Nope, we still haven't got a clue how an online multiplayer Assassin's Creed is going to work - but Ubisoft's going to give us a taste with a beta for the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
We have not announced exactly the date yet," Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot said, "but yes, we will have a beta test." We dare say that'll be announced at E3 then. Lovely.
If you're planning to buy Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - Ubisoft's multiplayer follow-up to last year's Assassin's Creed II - you should probably pre-order it from GameStop
That's if you're in the US anyway. Why? Because while we still know nothing about what Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will actually be like, the retailer has revealed that they're going to give-away this amazing Harlequin..
