Ubisoft unveiled the next title in its Assassin’s Creed franchise today. Titled Syndicate, the game takes place in Victoria London and follows the brother/sister duo of Jacob and Evie Frye. The pair run a criminal gang, and look to bring down rival gangs and the upper British class that seems to keep its poorest citizens down. Take a look at the announcement trailer below.
The game has a few changes up its sleeve to differentiate it from past titles. There is a played male and female protagonist, and there will be numerous female enemies as well.

2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order proved to be one of that year’s best shooters, as Bethesda and Machine Games gave us a terrific alternate history tale featuring the heroics of soldier B.J. Blazkowicz. Focusing on a single player campaign, The New Order allowed for multiple ways to play through a level, letting players go loud and shoot everything in sight or take a quieter approach and stealthily eliminate your Nazi foes. Solid voice acting bolstered the story, and brought the Wolfenstein franchise to a new generation of consoles while reinvigorating the series. Now in 2015 Bethesda and Machine Games visit Blazkowicz once again, this time in the prequel Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. And once again, we were provided with a fun, though slightly uneven, outing.
Wolfenstein is split into two r...Read More

With the Assassin’s Creed franchise turning out yearly titles it may be time for Ubisoft to shake up the formula a little bit. Going from a full 3D experience to a 2.5 one may not be the full answer, but it does give fans a different way to play an Assassin’s Creed title. In some ways the transition helps some elements, making them a bit more satisfying. Others, however, suffer a bit, mainly due to controls that are at times less than precise. But the overall package does provide some entertainment as well as some satisfaction. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will most likely please fans of the franchise, but it probably won’t convert any of its detractors. And in pleasing this fan it worked for the most part, so in that Ubisoft and developer Climax Studios succeeded...Read More
A bunch of info was released recently for EA’s Star Wars Battlefront along with a trailer. The game will not have a story driven, single player campaign. Instead, there will be missions that can be played solo or co-op, both online and local. The multiplayer will focus on the original trilogy of films, so don’t expect any of the locations or scenarios from the prequel trilogy. Four planets wills appear in the game- Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, and Sullust. An additional planet will be playable through free DLC, that of Jakku, which was shown in the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The DLC will be released on December 8, but those that pre-order the game will get it a full week early, on December 1...Read More
