Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Summary
There'll be more of a return to the 'modern day' setting in Assassin's Creed moving forward, says. Assassin's Creed: Unity only had brief moments through cutscenes where we weren't assuming the role of an ancestral assassin.
Lead writer Darby McDevitt pointed to Assassin's Creed 2 and the town of Monteriggioni, which was playable in both past and present, and so they plan to "smartly reuse things" for a modern experience.
It's been a few years since the original Assassin's Creed released, and there's been four major new titles since then. Obviously it's time for a bundle. Ubisoft usher in the Assassin's Creed Heritage Collection.
They bill it as a "high value compilation" starting with the original haystack-diver Altair in Assassin's Creed all the way through to frontier-exploring Connor in Assassins' Creed III.
Ubisoft announced today that the Assassin's Creed Anthology, a collection containing every Assassin's Creed game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will be released exclusively at Amazon in the UK on 30th November, 2012 for £119.99.
Sony has announced that the PS3 Essentials are now available for digital distribution on PlayStation Network.
Some coding enthusiasts have discovered a little something in Ubisoft's Uplay platform for PC leading others to blast it as a 'rootkit'. It stealthly installs a browser plug-in which isn't secure.
The plugin granted its discoverer "unexpectedly (at least to me) wide access" to websites. It's a rather embarrassing hiccup if true.
UPDATE: Trend Micro's Rik Ferguson, director of the security research firm, has said it's "not a malicious root, just really bad code." It's "a huge risk" .
