Say what you want about how Ubisoft go about making games, but there's no debate that they are capable of providing super rich experiences, those which don't just entertain but inform as well. This has been no more prevalent with their Assassin's Creed franchise - a series of games which draw in anyone with a hint of an historian hit. But it's with their Discovery Tour where Assassin's Creed and Ubisoft go to town, with that of Viking Age now becoming available.
I am a huge Assassin’s Creed fan and loved the Valhalla base game. Yet the first Wrath of the Druids expansion failed to blow me away. It’s a similar case here with The Siege of Paris. It’s good, but really nowhere near what we have come to expect from the franchise as a whole.
After taking a little while off, the Ubisoft team dropped back into the Assassin's Creed world with a bang, launching Assassin's Creed Valhalla alongside next generation consoles and providing players with one of the greatest AC titles yet. Since that launch, it's a game that has been built upon, and that is where the latest expansion comes in - The Siege of Paris.
I'm a massive fan of Assassin’s Creed and have found myself loving the latest games more than any which went before them. That is equally true of Valhalla yet, whilst the Wrath of the Druids is a strong addition to the library, it does at times feel more like a side quest rather than something capable of pushing forward the overall Valhalla narrative.
Ubisoft know a thing or two about creating wonderfully immersive worlds, having proved that the Assassin's Creed franchise is totally ripe for such undertakings. It's no surprise then to see them expanding the already huge world of Assassin's Creed Valhalla with its first major expansion, that of Wrath of the Druids.
Ubisoft are no strangers to global travel, happily having dipped their toe in the Far Eastern waters with the release of the Assassin's Creed Chronicles trilogy and the China edition back in 2015. Now though they are getting set to send us gamers back off on a little adventure with a collaboration with Aconyte Books seeing the publication of a new set of Assassin's Creed novels that are set in China.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Xbox is possibly my favourite entry in the series - stunningly glorious, fluid as you like, and full of mammoth amounts of content. If I had to be negative, then at times it can feel a little bit buggy, but I don't think I've played an open-world game that hasn't had this problem and at no point has it affected my enjoyment of the game.
Prior to Assassin's Creed Origins releasing back in 2017, Ubisoft dropped a stunning pair of Limited Edition Assassin’s Creed Origins Yeezy sneakers. We guess they went down pretty well too, as here and now, on the verge of seeing Assassin's Creed Valhalla releasing, Ubisoft are going down a similar route - teaming up for a new Capsule Collection with Reebok.
In just a few short weeks the wonderful world of Valhalla will be ripe for exploration when Ubisoft release Assassin's Creed Valhalla onto Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC. If past history of the franchise is anything to go by, it'll ensure many an hour or immersive adventuring lay ahead. Today though Ubisoft are already thinking to the future and with two major expansions already planned for the game - plus a ton of free content in between - Valhalla promises to go above and beyond anything you have already seen.
Ever since 2007, there has been an Assassin’s Creed game released almost every year. From main series releases to smaller games, the franchise has released some awesome titles for players and has become one of the most recognised franchises around.
If you're a regular to these pages then you will know of our love of Assassin's Creed. But you'll also know of our admiration for GUNNAR Optiks glasses too. The upcoming launch of the GUNNAR Optiks Enigma Assassin's Creed Valhalla Edition is therefore one that we are hugely interested in. And you should be too.
The next instalment of the class-leading Assassin's Creed is just around the corner and before we know it we'll be hopping into Assassin's Creed Valhalla and experiencing the life of a fierce Viking raider. In order to build up the hype a little - like it needs building! - Ubisoft have today dropped a brand new trailer, one that goes deep into the life of Eivor and allows players to get a glimpse of the legendary Viking saga that awaits.
The rumours were rife, and Ubisoft promised that gamers would be given a decent showing at their all-digital Ubisoft Forward conference. And they delivered the goods too, confirming full release dates for three massive games that are likely to define both this current gen of gaming, along with the move into next-gen with Xbox Series X and PS5. Yep, we've got release dates for Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Far Cry 6.
Assassin's Creed is one of the most loved of gaming franchises, having delivered all manner of stunning experiences since the original dropped way back in 2007. Since that time we've traipsed all across Italy, worked our way through the streets of London, we've adventured through Greece, and we've hit the high seas in search of far flung lands. Hell, we've even had the chance to take a slow boat to China. Today though it's all about going to Valhalla, as Ubisoft confirm first details of the next instalment in the franchise - Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed is a powerhouse in the gaming industry. The series made its debut back in 2007 and many gamers became steadfast fans. The series has had many ups and downs since its first instalment, but the momentum of the first games in the series has given Ubisoft the freedom to experiment with different ideas. Fast-forward to 2015 and Ubisoft released Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. It was the first of three games in the Chronicles series and a foray into the unknown for Assassin’s Creed.
I’ve read a fair few of the Assassin’s Creed comics that are available - The Fall and The Chain for one - and while most of them are a worthy read from both a comic-book fan point of view and for fans of the Creed, Bloodstone Vol.1 from Titan Comics has sadly left me confused rather than excited for the next entry in this potential-filled premise. That said, there is definitely fun to be had in exploring the Vietnam war from the perspective of the Assassin-Templar war.
Even a whole decade later, many (my humble self included) consider the second entry in the series as the best. But is it really that good? Let's go back in time and find out what makes Assassin's Creed 2 so memorable all these years - and sequels - later.
In the case of Titan Comics' Assassin's Creed: The Fall & The Chain, we see the rise and fall of Daniel Cross, an individual who suffers from alcoholism, drug addiction, insomnia and many more severe mental issues which cause him to be unstable and chaotic to a dangerous degree.
When Ubisoft delivered Assassin' Creed Origins to the world, they went on a mission to educate gamers, providing trips to Ancient Egypt and turning the game into an interactive 3D recreation of Ancient Egypt. But that was then, and this is now, and now it's the turn of Odyssey to do the same - with the chance to hit up and learn more about Ancient Greece.
Ever wanted to enter the world of Atlantis? The post-launch story arc for Assassin's Creed Odyssey has given the opportunity to do just that and right now the finale of that story has become available. Will you be taking in Judgment of Atlantis?
If you’re in a video game lull and you don’t feel like dying in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice anymore, Odyssey can be your sweet escape.
Assassin's Creed III Remastered on Xbox One is a good game which is fun to play. The graphics may be significantly improved but this is essentially the same as it was seven years ago, albeit now up against much stronger competition.
Looking to find the conclusion of the first post-launch story arc for Assassin's Creed Odyssey? Well, Bloodline is the finale to Legacy of the First Blade, and it is available right now.
