Viz has a lot of manga coming out next month, and they asked us to pass on the word. They’re calling attention to three volumes in particular, one original, one based on a movie and one based on a game.
The good news is, Assassin’s Creed Unity — the 2014 installment of Ubisoft’s long-running action video game series — is free of charge for the next week. The bad news is, it took the destruction of one of the world’s most beloved structures to make it happen.
PopGeeks recently had the chance to sit down and speak with music composer Austin Wintory. Wintory is an award-winning veteran who has worked on such big franchises as Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. He also received a Grammy Award nomination for his work on Journey, which marked the first time a video game score was ever nominated for a Grammy Award. His other credits include The Banner Saga and ABZU. Here’s what Wintory had to say about working on music in the gaming industry.
There have been some very interesting video game collaborations over the years, but easily one of the most interesting in the last year or so is the free DLC that has come to Final Fantasy XV. Why? Because it features the characters and world of the game getting an Assassin’s Creed makeover, complete with assassin’s garb for Noctis, and a brand new storyline. Oh, and you’ll be able to do parkour style traveling in this special DLC “festival”.
Yep, you read that right, the world of Final Fantasy XV is getting some gear and content from the past via Assassin’s Creed. In a collaboration revealed at Gamescom 2017, Square Enix and Ubisoft are teaming up for this version special free content that’ll arrive on August 31st. The content will include a new story in the town of Lestallum, which is being made over to represent the world of Assassin’s Creed.
Since its leak, players have been wondering what would make Assassin’s Creed Origins different from all the other games that have been made in the franchise. Well, we’ve slowly been getting a better picture of what the answer is, and at Gamescom 2017, a massive demo of the game was playable, and Game Informer got to release that demo for all to see.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise has been in a slump as of late. However, with the reveal of Assassin’s Creed: Origins at E3, hope has been restored. The game not only seeks to tell the origins of the entire story, but it wishes to expand the gameplay to new heights and depths, both figuratively and literally.
Ubisoft has been pushing the limits of the video game collector’s market for some time now, and their offerings for Assassin’s Creed Origins (revealed today) are their most cartoonish yet. Eight different versions of the game will be available this holiday season, the most expensive of which retails at $799.99.
After many rumors about its existence, Ubisoft came to the Microsoft E3 Press Conference and confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Origins is indeed the next in the Assassin’s Creed line.
The titles that are due to become available for free in June through the Games With Gold program. As is usual with the offer, Xbox Live Gold members will get access to four titles in total, two on the Xbox One and another two for the Xbox 360.
With April not too many days away, Microsoft have revealed the games that will make up the next month’s Games With Gold. As is usual, the collection comprises two Xbox One titles and two Xbox 360 titles, though all games are playable on the new console through backwards compatibility.
Ubisoft has announced a partnership to bring its franchises to Dubai’s IMG World indoor theme park. In its statement, they confirmed that Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance, and Rabbids are among its franchises that will show up in the United Arab Emirates park. The company explained that it’s doing this as is part of a concerted strategy to expand its catalog of franchises beyond just gaming. The company is also making movies based on its franchises, the newest of which, Assassin’s Creed, comes to theaters this month.
