Heads will roll
Republished on Wednesday 13th July, 2022: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of July's PS Plus Extra, Premium lineup. The original text follows. 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...
The people have spoken
In yet another bid to try and improve Assassin's Creed Unity after the game's somewhat shoddy launch, Ubisoft has released a patch today that removes the need to fiddle about with the title's companion app and Initiates website. Throughout the game's virtual Paris, you'll find chests that can only be opened through use of the...
Nothing's a waste if you learn from it
Did you know that Assassin's Creed Unity didn't have a smooth launch? It's no secret that the highly anticipated title was a major disappointment for almost everyone due to its myriad glitches and flaws that mired an otherwise beautiful game with ambitious design changes, as we pointed out in our review...
We would have advised against putting down the cash for Assassin's Creed Unity when it launched, given its myriad technical issues, but Ubisoft's sandbox romp is currently going for a much more agreeable price on Amazon.co.uk, especially since a slew of patches have largely fixed a lot of the aforementioned problems.
Assassin's Creed Unity's free expansion pack Dead Kings ain't especially great. We can appreciate the apology from Ubisoft, but the PlayStation 4 title's core is so rotten that we found playing through the epilogue a bit of a chore.

Rest in pieces
Arno's adventure will continue next week, as Ubisoft is readying the release of Assassin's Creed Unity's first expansion pack, Dead Kings. The post-launch content was originally intended to be a premium offering, but following the title's buggy launch, everyone
Assassin’s Creed Unity probably should have been taken to the gallows rather than store shelves. There’s a reasonable game at the centre of the Parisian escapade, but performance hiccups have thus far prevented it from breaking free. However, following the addition of a gigantic 6.5GB patch, has Ubisoft managed to salvage...
Ubisoft promised that those of you unfortunate enough to stump up extra for Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Season Pass would be compensated with a free title of your choice, and it looks like the French publisher is rolling out those goodies now. One user on NeoGAF posted an email that he received from the firm outlining how to claim his...
If you've not been paying attention, Assassin's Creed Unity's launch last month was as messy and convoluted as the franchise's storied timeline. Performance issues plagued the title, while
Off with its head
Ubisoft has slashed the top off Assassin’s Creed Unity’s price on the PlayStation 4, dropping the next-gen exclusive down to £39.99 in Europe as part of Sony’s ongoing 12 Deals of Christmas initiative. The game’s due a patch on Monday that will hopefully solve its remaining issues, so this may be worth a punt.
Patch four impending
While it may not seem like it sometimes, we genuinely don’t enjoy reporting on broken games. It’s part of the reason why we’re so pleased to see DriveClub overcome its troubles and blossom into a really decent racing game – and also why we’ve got our fingers crossed tightly that Assassin’s Creed Unity will finally be...
