Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed 2K14

Back in 2007 a lot of hype was building around a new IP set for release on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 called Assassin's Creed. It was one of the bigger games that was actually starting to look "next-gen" to me. The free running, the open cities, the amount of NPC's on screen, and the fighting mechanics all looked amazing, and it had me very excited to get my hands on this new title.

Assassin's Creed IV Details Leaked, Set To Include Assassin Pirates

Now on a yearly schedule like that of the Madden and Call of Duty series, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Ubisoft has a new Assassin’s Creed in the works.  The third entry, at least numbered entry, in the series had gamers in two distinct camps when it was released last year, yet here we are on the verge of yet another installment being prepped which appears to be more of the same.

An Official and Unofficial Update On Prince of Persia (New IP News)

Today some good and bad news has surfaced concerning the fate of the Prince of Persia franchise. Last seen in the rather disappointing quasi movie tie-in that was Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Ubisoft has revealed that the time altering acrobatic Prince we know and love is being put into early retirement.

Ubisoft Teams Up With New Regency For Assassin's Creed Movie

Ubisoft is making its own fate and in the process could buck the trend of what has come before it. After announcing their plans to create a new label to focus on developing their properties into films and television shows, Ubisoft dropped the bomb on us that none other than Michael Fassbender would be starring and co-producer the film adaptation of Assassin’s Creed. This was of course after news surfaced which has Ubisoft in a near unprecedented deal which gave them sole creative control on the endeavor.

The Assassin's Creed Movie Gets A Major Actor For The Lead Role

Perhaps it’s merely wishful thinking, but our first truly great video game film could come in the form of the forthcoming live-action Assassin’s Creed movie. Previously it was rumored that Sony won the bidding rights to release the Assassin’s Creed movies, but now it has been revealed that none other than actor Michael Fassbender will star in the movie.

Breaking Down: Assassin’s Creed 3 Cover Art

As Casey mentioned yesterday in TL;DR, Ubisoft was on the verge of a big announcement and today we got our first look at Assassin’s Creed 3.

The cover art tells us a few things about the future of the franchise. As I’m sure most were able to figure out, it’s set in the late 1700s during the American Revolution. If this is true, the events in AC3 will take place 200ish years in the future.  It’s also safe to say a new character will be playable this time around as AC: Revelations wrapped up the story of Ezio Auditore.

Assassin's Creed Film Deal Has Ubisoft In Complete Control

Everyone was  rather surprised when it was revealed that Sony Pictures had acquired the rights to the Assassin’s Creed movie, which Ubisoft will be overseeing via their new film division.  Exact details of the deal made between Sony and Ubisoft of course weren’t made public but many had assumed it was a common deal and that Ubisoft would have a fair bit of input into the film since it’s their goal not to have another Prince of Persia incident.

Ezio Is Officially Revealed In Soul Calibur 5 [Video]

For once a rumor we see surface online has turned out to be wholly legit as famed assassin Ezio Auditore will indeed be messing fools up in Soul Calibur 5.  Leaked earlier this week via an image of the SC5 character select screen, Ezio will be the first major guest character for the latest Soul Calibur title and he could end up being the best to ever appear.

Sony Could Become The Home For The Assassin's Creed Film Franchise

After entertaining us for the last few years the Assassin’s Creed franchise could finally be ready to make the jump to the world of film and Sony Pictures could be the driving force behind such a thing.  Variety is reporting that Sony Pictures is in negotiations to secure the film rights for the Assassin’s Creed franchise from Ubisoft, with a film likely to enter production within the next two years.

A Popular Assassin May Be Joining The Roster Of Soul Calibur 5

So far things are looking good for Soul Calibur 5 based on the small amounts of footage and details we’ve received so far.  Namco and Team Soul may not be drastically reinventing the Soul Calibur formula, but tweaking things a bit and even doing other things like downsizing the average chest size of a female character from a triple-D to a medium C cup hasn’t even left gamers mad.
