Assassin’s Creed Unity issues: Ubisoft blames AMD [UPDATE: Ubisoft recants]

Assassin’s Creed Unity issues: Ubisoft blames AMD [UPDATE: Ubisoft recants]

It's not been a great couple of days for Ubisoft. Assassin's Creed Unity was put on sale a full 12 hours before the review embargo was lifted, reviews were less than positive, and there've been several reports of graphics glitches in-game for both the console (PS4, Xbox One), and PC versions of the game. Today Ubisoft has responded to a couple of complaints, suggesting in one case that "graphics performance" could be "adversely affected by certain AMD CPU and GPU configurations." Ubisoft appears to be suggesting this performance hit is only present on PCs, not necessarily Xbox One or PS4.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity Review

Assassin’s Creed: Unity Review

What if you have a game that's so incredibly popular, your company schedules a new iteration every year - and in some cases, more than once a year? Assassin's Creed Unity happens. A massive game - a giant scope. Huge amounts of land to explore, a beautiful aesthetic throughout. But why can't I open this chest? Why am I being asked to sign up for UPlay in order to get special bonuses in a console game? You might be asking yourself the same questions about 45 minutes into the game.

NVIDIA Ubisoft team-up: Crew, Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity optimized

This week we're having more of a look at what NVIDIA and Ubisoft are doing to bring you the biggest next-gen games with the most optimized graphics in the business. In addition to bringing systems like HBAO+ for shadows, TXAA for super smoothness, and full-on 4K support for the lot of these games, they're giving them a boost with a "Pick Your Path" promotion that brings you one of the three for free. Just so long as you need a new graphics card, too.

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Time Anomaly gets wicked weird

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Time Anomaly gets wicked weird

If you thought you'd only be in Paris during the French Revolution in Assassin's Creed: Unity, you'd be wrong. The French Revolution Simulation is collapsing. All of Assassin's Creed is a simulation, after all. You're about to be dropped in a different time entirely. Steampunk? Naw. Dropping in via Mr. Peabody and Sherman? Time travel can only be done that way in real life, of course. Looks like World War 1 atop the Eiffel Tower to us, how about you? Time to make the jump.

Assassin’s Creed Unity bundles and Rogue Storyline trailer tapped

Assassin’s Creed Unity bundles and Rogue Storyline trailer tapped

This morning we’re having a peek at several different angles on Assassin’s Creed Unity - product, storyline, and gameplay. While we got our Assassin’s Creed: Unity First-Impressions in on the 6th, one week ago, we’re having another look at the game from a final release schedule perspective today. It begins with bundles - two of them, both with the Xbox One. We can't help but wonder how long it'll be before the PlayStation 4 bundles arrive (if they exist, that is to say) - without camera, of course.

Far Cry 4 x Childish Gambino trailer goes hard

Far Cry 4 x Childish Gambino trailer goes hard

This morning it’s become clear that Childish Gambino has gone to the next level in rap, in entertainment, in life. The folks behind Far Cry 4 have also initiated some heavy synergy by pairing up with Childish Gambino for the video you’re about to see. Bringing in real-deal not-just-gaming sound to their release schedule has Ubisoft taking Far Cry 4 out a whole new door.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity First-Impressions

We're just a little over one month away from the full release of Assassin's Creed: Unity, and we've had our first opportunity to get an up-close and personal view of the game in all its glory. Our demonstration was done on an Xbox One and we've seen single-player, 2-player co-op, and 4-player co-op. In this game Ubisoft presents Assassin's Creed rebuilt, enhancing the bits we liked about previous generations and cutting out the fluff.
