Assassin's Creed IV Accidentally Then Officially Announced
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 4th of March 2013 - 02:45 PM ]
It has been made official; Assassin's Creed IV is coming just about a year after AC3 has landed. It was originally rumored with the below trailer teasing it last week, but since the cat was let out of the bag it looks like Ubisoft isn't keeping it hidden any more. The video is now to be considered the official announcement of AC4 along with the release date of November 1st 2013. That adds another title to the PS4's launch lineup it would seem. Now for the interesting part, it looks like Ubisoft is breaking from the theme of traveling forward in history with each new AC title as we will be playing during the time of Blackbeard. Read More...

Story Time For Assassin's Creed III!
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 4th of October 2012 - 03:07 PM ]
We are close to the launch of Assassin's Creed III and we know the general story and time period of the game. Wouldn't it be nice to get the spoiler on why and how Connor joined the assassins? When you look at the recruitment process in the past it would seem a bit odd that a Native American would join the ranks of the assassins. They have seemed to stick to a specific 'type' so far, but I digress. A bit of a heads up, the below trailer does touch on a few things in the intro story. Read More...

Assassin's Creed III's Combat Looks Beautifully Brutal
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 12th of September 2012 - 04:52 PM ]
We are getting closer to the launch of Assassin's Creed III. As we get closer it looks like Ubisoft is ramping up the game play details; this time with the actual combat of the game. Below you will see that we have episode two of the four part series that is showcasing all the game's insides. I was a bit doubtful when I first heard about the altered combat system for AC3, but seeing it fully in action here, dear gods. I am sure they took as much detail in past titles, but it definitely looks like they went all out here. Looks like this could be just as fluid as Arkham Asylum/City's combat when all is said and done and that is what I would classify as the best in the biz. Read More...

The Dangers Of Far Cry 3
by Greg Tatterfield [ Friday, 7th of September 2012 - 01:14 PM ]
Ubisoft has released a new trailer in their game play series for Far Cry 3. Part 2 of the survival guide sheds even more light on the games’ characters and story. Vass, which was mentioned in the first trailer, is revealed to be a drug addict and the leader of a group of black market pirates. Vaas also grows drugs and kidnaps hostages. It seems that Vaas is the person who may be holding Jason Brody’s friends. Other interesting features revealed in the trailer include making your own medicine out of wide array of ingredients found around the island, crafting and hunting to make money to buy new weapons and upgrades and gambling if earning money is not your thing.

Splinter Cell Blacklist PAX Prime Ghost Demo
by Greg Tatterfield [ Thursday, 6th of September 2012 - 01:21 PM ]
Over the weekend at PAX Prime Ubisoft showed off a new game play demo of Splinter Cell Blacklist. The demo was the same mission from E3 but this time it was a stealth play through. Ubisoft wanted to prove that you can still play through Blacklist using stealth like you played through every other game. Even with the ramped up action and lack of shadows the game still holds true to the series focus of stealth. The game finds the perfect balance between stealth and action. Read More...

See How You Will Survive In Far Cry 3
by Greg Tatterfield [ Thursday, 30th of August 2012 - 06:19 PM ]
Ubisoft has released a new trailer outlining the ways you may survive on the Rook Islands in Far Cry 3. The trailer shows some pretty crazy stuff such as exploring ancient temples and fighting off tigers and other wild animals. The trailer also sheds some light on the story and characters. It seems like there is a native tribe on the island lead by a women named Citra that will help main character Jason Brody survive the many dangers on the island. Her brother Vaas was also mentioned in the trailer but not much was revealed about him. Other things that were shown in the trailer include using zip lines, gliders and driving bikes and other vehicles. Read More...

A Few Inside Looks At Assassin's Creed III
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 28th of August 2012 - 07:11 PM ]
So about two weeks ago we were given a look at Assassin's Creed III's Naval Combat, but we didn't get many details on what is going on and what we will get to control. More or less it was a showing that just further confirmed what was announced at E3. If you venture a little bit lower here, you will see a similar video as before, only this time with a little bit of explanation. I do mean little though. If you have a few minutes take a listen to Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director, as he explains some of the weapons and events that were going on in the last video as well as what we have to look forward to.

Assassin's Creed III Hits The High Seas
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 15th of August 2012 - 03:13 PM ]
We've heard and seen a bit about Naval Warfare in Assassin's Creed III. We know it's going to be a feature in the game. With the below trailer from Gamescom we get, pretty much the exact same thing just with a bit more game play footage for the game. You'd think that there would be at least a few more details given here seeing as the game is so close to launch, but I guess not. But hey, who's going to look a bit more game play in a bad way? Hopefully there will be more details coming out here soon on this. Read More...

Aggrocast Episode Ninety Eight: Pre-E3 2012 Expectations
by Brian Bentley [ Friday, 1st of June 2012 - 12:44 PM ]
It's that time again. The Electronic Entertainment Expo is looming and that means it's time for Matt, Corey and Brian to drop the gloves and pontificate the possibilities of what will happen next week at E3. The list of games the guys go over is too long to write out here...much like the podcast itself. It goes so long in fact, we had to break it up into two chunks. The bulk of it is here in Episode 98, but keep an eye here on Aggrogamer for a special bonus podcast of what happens when the discussion really heats up. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 17th of April 2012 - 02:51 PM ]
In Assassin's Creed III it has been announced that one of the ways to make some scratch to upgrade will be through the form of hunting in the wilderness. Connor can collect pelts and the like and sell them and depending on the quality of the pelt and kill he can make a lot of cash. Cash he will most likely need to use to upgrade all of his stuff. It has also been talked about that Connor can technically assassinate these creature for the best results. So what do we have to talk about here today? Read More...

Looks Like The Assassin's Creed III "Collector's Edition" Has Been Outed
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 27th of March 2012 - 06:24 PM ]
Well more the "collector's edition" and I'm guessing its not so expesive younger siblings as well. Looks like we will have a few choices to make when it comes to pre-ordering or out right buying when it comes to Assassin's Creed III. There are three different "editions" of the game for us to spend out hard earned money on. As usual there is a "Special Edition" that will most likely just be a fancy way of saying "here's a free upgrade for being a fan but not really because anyone can just buy it." Then there are the two others that have quite a bit of extra meat to them. Read More...

Let's Start Speculating On These New Assassin Creed III Screens
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Sunday, 25th of March 2012 - 01:58 AM ]
For a game all about staying stealthy it sure cannot keep its hidden news, well, hidden. A group of six new screen shots for Assassin's Creed III have made their way onto the internet and thus into the hands of everyone with some form of online connection. All I have to say is that these images most likely were meant to roll out with some new info of the game. So with that said, let's speculate on what these screen shots mean outside of showing how the new game engine is leaps and bounds over the past ones. So let's see. Read More...

Take a look and then move on to what Ubisoft wanted to be the official announcement. Now that is out of the way, let's move on. While not much more is given out about the game there is a nice new announcement trailer showing how the new engine is looking. Just to place it out there in layperson terms this whole trailer was made using the game engine and not pre-rendered scenes. Read More...

Is Assassin's Creed III Taking On The American Revolutionary War?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 1st of March 2012 - 02:00 PM ]
While it was chalked up as a rumor as of yesterday, it looks like we can confirm that Assassin's Creed III will be taking place during the American Revolutionary War.  That is, if we are to rely on the recently released box art for the game and the "leaked" Best Buy promotional poster. You can see both below. Go ahead and look I won't judge you too much. Any further details about the game are still sketchy at this point, but this is something we can glean from the box art and poster. Read More...
