Ubisoft finally released the official launch trailer for Assassin's Creed 3 along with the first details on this new game, following numerous leaks last week. This third installment in the popular franchise continues the long-standing feud between the Assassins and Templars, but is set against the backdrop of the American Revolution.
Ubisoft had just revealed the official cover art for Assassin's Creed 3 yesterday, and now five more images purported to be screenshots of the game have surfaced on Reddit via imgur. There's no way to verify the authenticity of these images, but they look very convincing and provide more hints at what elements of gameplay to expect.
Following leaks on the much anticipated Assassin's Creed 3 game title, publisher Ubisoft has released the official cover art today, which offers many revealing clues to what this iteration has in store. The company also announced that it would be confirming all the details for the game next Monday, March 5 at 5pm.
This week the folks at Ubisoft are transitioning between servers for their massive data library and while this operation goes on, many of their games, even ones that do no require an internet connection for gameplay, will be rendered completely unplayable. This is because Ubisoft employs a DRM (Digital Rights Management) system which checks to make sure the copy of the game you're using is legitimate each time you start the game up - if the server where this check occurs is down (as it is now), you will be unable to play these games entirely. In other words - it's not just you, it's every single person who owns a list of games from Ubisoft until the end of February the 8th.
Ubisoft announced today a new peripheral for the Nintendo Wii called the Drawsome Tablet. The device lets users draw on the tablet using a stylus to interact with games. It appears similar to THQ's uDraw device, but is said to be a way for Ubisoft to test the market for Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console.
It's time to get gaming, ladies and gentlemen, with a barrage of shooters released all in the span of a few weeks leading up the holiday season - the newest announcement being Ubisoft's next hero: Rainbow 6 Patriots. The next chapter in the wildly successful tactical gaming series based on the classic Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six. This time around it'll be the same Team Rainbow tactical squad this time put up against a group of United States terrorists called the True Patriots.
Ubisoft has announced that it will be bringing its popular Assassin's Creed game to the iPhone and iPad. But, it's not quite what you'd expect. The iOS reincarnation, called Assassin's Creed Recollection, will be in the form of a real-time strategy board game instead of the open world format we're used to seeing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Two new games Ubisoft announced today at E3 bring their own unique spin to the genre of party/body games. Rocksmith changes the guitar-sim world by introducing a game where you actually play a real life guitar, not a controller. Just Dance 3 expands one of the most popular dance-sim games across all platforms, regardless if you want to Wii or Kinect.
Ubisoft isn't stopping at just Driver and Far Cry 3, they've also announced some of the other popular games will be seeing new releases coming soon. Two of those popular games will be Ghost Recon Future Soldier, as well as Assassins Creed Revelations both of which are successful games I'm sure you are all excited to see and hear about.
Rayman Origins is the newest in the franchise where Rayman and blue friend named Globox are back for some more action in this zany arcade style side-scroller. The demo opens with Rayman and his large blue friend chasing a large decorative treasure chest. Well, we are not sure exactly what it is. The chest looks like a barbeque, and also a little like the Arc of the Covenant from Raiders of the Lost Arc, but eventually does turn out to be a treasure chest.
