If you've worked on the likes of Bioshock Infinite, on Grand Theft Auto IV and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, then you probably know a thing or two about what makes a game tick. That's the hope as the newly formed indie studio at Cut to Bits announce their riveting and dynamic metroidvania-styled debut title, Venture to the Vile.
Running between 13th-19th September 2022, the latest set of Xbox game discounts are in place. This time around the usual Deals With Gold Sale is accompanied by those that see discounts slapped on a host of Assassin's Creed games, the best to have come out of the Tokyo Game Show and more.
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.
We've seen Ubisoft deliver a number of new gameplay opportunities to fans of Assassin's Creed over the years, and with the introduction of Valhalla back in 2020, that trend has continued. Today though it's all about the most ambitious expansion for Assassin's Creed yet as we take in the Dawn of Ragnarök.
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.
