In brief: The latest Assassin’s Creed game—Odyssey—has been called the best entry in the series by several reviewers, and it seems that many Steam users agree. The new entry in the long-running franchise has seen its peak player numbers reach just under 62,000 on the platform, a significant jump over last year’s Origins, which had a peak of 41,541. While Odyssey is the top-selling game on Steam, some users have complained about optimization problems on the PC. The inclusion of microtransaction has also irked some buyers, it seems. But GitHyp reports that these issues haven’t stopped it from gaining the series' highest concurrent player figures. Before Origins was launched in 2016, Syndicate, Unity, and Rogue all had peak player numbers of under 5,500. Odyssey still has a way to go before it passes Origins’ sales, but it looks to be on track. SteamSpy says that around 200,000 – 500,000 copies of the latest game have been sold, while Origins … [Read more...] about Assassin’s Creed Odyssey hits 62K concurrent players on Steam, beating Origins’ peak

Far Cry 5 is shaping up to be one heck of a game. Originally announced last May, Ubisoft has been feeding gamers a steady diet of content ever since although the latest tidbit looks to be the most appetizing yet. Borrowing a page from Nintendo’s playbook, Far Cry 5 will feature a robust level editor called Far Cry Arcade that could easily take on a life of its own. Gamers will have access to around 7,000 unique objects including weaponry, buildings and vehicles found in Far Cry 5 as well as assets from other Ubisoft games like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Watch Dogs. Additional assets from “post-launch content” will also be added as they become available, we’re told, so you can expect stuff like “Vietnamese jungles, Martian arachnids and zombies.” Ubisoft wants Far Cry Arcade to be an integral part of the overall Far Cry experience. To help achieve that, Far Cry Arcade is literally being baked into the main … [Read more...] about Far Cry 5’s map editor could be better than the main campaign
Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Origins is the grand return to form we'd been hoping for and the first essential title in the series since Black Flag. Critical acclaim and strong sales are the worst enemies of discounts though, so cheap offers have been slim.We have some excellent news though if you have an Xbox One or Xbox One X as CDKeys has just come up with the lowest price yet in the UK, US and Australia with this digital edition. Better yet (sort of), you also get a free download code for Assassin's Creed: Unity on Xbox One too, which is a handy 'gift' for any family member or friend you're not especially keen on right now.Assassin's Creed: Origins on Xbox One £20.99 / $29.99 / AU$37.59 @ CDKeysAmazon for £30.99 (that's actually not bad compared to the rest). In the US, most stores are still charging $60, but Target has it on offer for $39.99. Order it from CDKeys instead though and you can start downloading it straight away and you get that copy of Unity too. You can even … [Read more...] about Get Assassin’s Creed: Origins on Xbox One for the lowest price ever
I've played hundreds of games in my life and only a few deserve a place upon my shelf. The rest end up in the recycle bin (metaphorically speaking). The five-star titles are easy to remember but many of the rubbish games get lost in the fog of time. I'm sure you all will remind me of worse games but the worst one that I can recall was Assassin's Creed Unity. Ubisoft should be ashamed of itself for releasing that title. Even putting the multitude of bugs that the game shipped with aside, I did not find the story that engaging. The characters felt rushed and there seemed to be a general disconnect from the rest of the franchise. A completely forgettable title. Are there any games worse than AC:U? I bet you'll tell me.
