Assassins Creed

  • Requiescat in Pace, Assassin’s Creed?

    Assassin’s Creed is a franchise that has greatly evolved from its now humble beginnings in 2007. The scope and scale of each instalment has expanded and the series has shifted from simple historical action-adventure games to full-fledged RPGs with a penchant for the mythological. But the next evolution could...
  • Addicted to Orlog in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

    It’s November 2012 and I’m pissed off. You see, I’m something of a Trophy Hunter myself. Maybe not obsessively so but I look at the list of those useless little things before playing any PlayStation game and aim to unlock the platinum whenever possible. I’m also a big Assassin’s...
  • Valhalla’s Vinland Arc is my Favourite Assassin’s Creed Content in Years

    Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a huge game. The last few entries in the series have expanded the franchise into a full-blown RPG with hundreds of hours of content across a massive open world. There was some push back against the sheer size of Greece in Odyssey, as well as...
  • Why Connor is Assassin’s Creed’s Most Underrated Protagonist

    Assassin’s Creed 3 ’s Connor shouldn’t work as a compelling protagonist. It’s made clear from the start of his journey that Connor, or Ratonhnhaké:ton to give him his full Kanien’kehá:ka name, is just a pawn in a game. Juno, whom he sees as a God in a Piece of...
  • Return to Abstergo: My Favourite Assassin’s Creed Moment

    Assassin’s Creed is seemingly endless. Pick an interesting point in history, drop in the duelling philosophies of the Assassins and Templars, create an open world and an engaging protagonist and boom, you’ve got yourself the next entry of a series that could continue until the end of time. As...

  • A Farewell to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    It’s usually around this time of year that I’d be picking up the controller to play a new Assassin’s Creed game but, alas, that’s not this case this year. The franchise is taking a well-deserved and aptly-timed break before the next instalment – rumoured to be focused on Vikings...
  • My Love-Hate Relationship with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Atlantis DLC

    Greece is beautiful. Oh, in real life sure, but I’m talking about the Peloponnesian War-era Greece that’s open to explore in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. I’ve spent an almost embarrassing number of hours in the game, most of which are spent in the most picturesque digital landscapes imaginable. But for...
  • Is There Really a Ubisoft Shared Universe?

    Abstergo logos in Far Cry. Sam Fisher in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The Assassin’s Brotherhood symbol in Rainbow Six Siege. Raving Rabbids in Watch Dogs. Ubisoft loves to have their games reference and connect to one another. At the moment these connections are seemingly there for two reasons: a cheeky...
