Ubisoft has released a new set of screenshots showcasing Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. The developer has also announced that 40% of the gameplay will be at sea, meaning we will be seeing plenty of Jack Sparrow vs Davy Jones naval warfare action.

Despite being called “cocky” and “charismatic”, Edward looks angry (or maybe tired?), a little sallow and underweight as implied […]

Not too long ago, PETA complained about Assassin’s Creed 4 that would feature harpooning whales, saying, “Whaling – that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive – may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it. PETA […]

First Assassin’s Creed 4 screenshots emerge

The first screenshots of Assassin’s Creed 4 are looking incredibly impressive. Ubisoft is said to be giving the franchise a makeover to create a new experience for fans which, I say, is an excellent choice. Protagonist Edward Kenway can apparently hunt orcas, loot treasure underwater, leap onto other ships to engage in high sea battles, explore caves and plenty of other exciting and new activities. One of the pictures give us a very good look of Edward, who is donning […]

Not long after Ubisoft confirmed Assassin’s Creed 4, a glitch that occurred on the game’s official website suggesting that the next Templar-vs-Assassin game will be released on October 29 this year for next-gen consoles.
With PlayStation 4 slated for launch somewhere in November or “Holiday 2013” as announced during the meeting, this hardly comes as a surprise although the next-gen console may get a later release date because of the weeks that set both releases apart. The same may […]

Ubisoft has revealed the official box art for the upcoming open world game Watch Dogs and no one really cares about it. I mean, I don’t see the internet complaining about how boring and forgettable the box art is. Well, this certainly isn’t going to stop me from getting this game because of box art I’m going to look at for approximately two seconds. The art shows protagonist Aiden Pearce gripping a pistol in one hand and his cellphone […]

Jimmy Fallon got an actual hands-on demo of newly-annnounced Killzone: Shadow Fall on his talk show Late Night on Jimmy Fallon.

The gameplay was similar to what was shown during Sony’s PlayStation 4 press conference, except Fallon spent some extra time staring heavenward. “Focus Mode”, a mechanic to slow down cinematic scenes a la The Matrix, […]
