Game events are just the gifts that keep on giving. In case you didn’t already know, Gamescom 2020 is currently on, and whilst we got a big dose of new gameplay and trailers yesterday at the Opening Night Live event, more info and gameplay is coming out over the week, including a brand new Assassins Creed: Valhalla gameplay video.
Ubisoft is having a tough time with leaks at the moment, after 30 minutes of Assassins Creed Valhalla gameplay was already leaked a couple days ago, then out of nowhere we got some leaked screenshots for Watch Dogs Legion, all ahead of time for the Ubisoft Forward E3-style live event happening this Sunday. Now some more gameplay has leaked for Assassins Creed: Valhalla.
The Assassins Creed franchise has had some interesting criticism as of late. Some like the new reboots, some don’t, but it’s clear that this has left fans divided between the old games and the news ones. Then, with the backlash over Odyssey’s ‘bloated’ gameplay, it seemed as if Assassins Creed: Odyssey.
The Assassins Creed franchise has had a very divisive audience recently, thanks to the sudden shift into a more RPG-focused game style. Some fans have openly expressed their love of the new style, while others have lamented at the abrupt transition that has steered further away from what made the original games so good and iconic. One such divisive decision was the return of the hidden blade, and it’s poor damage output in Assassins Creed: Origins.
It looks like Ubisoft has taken notes from criticism about their previous Assassins Creed game, Assassins Creed: Valhalla will be smaller and shorter in scale, but that's not to say though that the game will still be small by any means.
The Inside Xbox livestream began today, showcasing all the juicy in-engine gameplay for numerous Xbox Series X titles. There were some interesting announcements and reveals, but quite possibly the standout moment that was pretty much the only reason why most of us watched the stream, was the world premiere of official gameplay from the upcoming Assassins Creed: Valhalla.
No matter what platform we consider to be the best, I think we’re all excited to see what’s on offer for the next-gen consoles, especially considering that Microsoft seems to be just as dedicated to their Xbox platform as PC now; releasing several once-Xbox exclusive titles to PC like the recent Gears of War franchise, even going as far as making Gears Tactics a PC exclusive for now.
After yesterday’s tantalizing setting reveal of the next major Assassins Creed title, Ubisoft teased the world premier trailer for Assassins Creed: Origins.
It’s official, in a live event hosted by all the various official Assassins Creed Social Media pages, the developers teased the setting of the next brand new Assassin’s Creed game by… a live Photoshop drawing? We have to say this might be the strangest teaser we’ve seen for a video game yet. Anyway, whilst playing some intense music from the various Assassins Creed soundtracks, the drawing depicted a lone character caught between two different landscapes. Yep, that's right, the next Assassins Creed game is set in not just one, but two locations it seems!
