Italian hacking group CPY has been trying to crack Assassin’s Creed Origins privacy protections for a few months now and it has now announced that the Assassin’s Creed Origins crack has been achieved on PC. This means that pirated version…

Last year there were rumors suggesting that Assassin’s Creed Rogue could be remastered in higher resolution for modern day consoles. Turns out the rumors were right because it has been confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remaster is in the works and…
If you’re looking for some games to play and don’t really want to pay money for it, you’ll be pleased to learn that Ubisoft has decided to make a bunch of its games free. This includes Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4, and World in Conflict. However note that these games are only free through Uplay, and will only be available until the 23rd of December, 2017.
As pointed out by VG247, Ubisoft had previously made Watch Dogs free in November, and now it looks like the game will be free to play again, at least while this offer is still valid. That being said, these aren’t necessarily the latest titles from Ubisoft and to a certain extent, some of them might even be considered “old”.
However if you never got around to playing them due to whatever reasons you might have, then now might be a good time to check them out since it won’t cost you a dime, although you will have to download Uplay and download the games through Ubisoft’s platform in order to qualify for it.
The deal will run until the December 23 and ends at 10am UTC, so if you’d like to learn more, you can hit up Ubisoft’s page for the details.
According to an earlier report, it was suggested that Assassin’s Creed Rogue could be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. If this was something you were interested in, you’ll be pleased to learn that the HD version of the game has recently been rated by the Korea Games Rating Board, which means that we could be close to seeing a release.
Ubisoft has yet to officially announce anything so take don’t get your hopes up just yet, but hopefully we’ll be able to hear something from the publisher soon. For those unfamiliar, Assassin’s Creed Rogue was launched several years ago during the PS3 to PS4 transition period.
Back then, Ubisoft released two versions of Assassin’s Creed, one of which was Unity designed for the Xbox One and PS4, and Rogue which was designed for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The launch of the HD remake of Rogue would suggest that the game could be arriving onto the current-gen consoles, so if you didn’t get to play the game before, this could be your chance.
There’s no word on when the game will be released, so details about what the HD version of the game will contain remain unknown, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
Back in 2014 when the new PS4 and Xbox One consoles were announced, Ubisoft made a rather interesting decision regarding its Assassin’s Creed franchise. They decided to release two titles, one of which was Assassin’s Creed Unity for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and Assassin’s Creed Rogue which was for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Now it looks like Ubisoft could have a HD version of Rogue in the works, thanks to a tweet by AccessTheAnimus in which listings on various Italian retailers’ websites are suggesting that the game could be real. The listings have also suggested that the release of the HD version of Rogue could be on the 18th of March, 2018.

Assuming that this information is accurate, we’re not sure what we can expect from the HD version of Assassin’s Creed Rogue, other than the probability that we’ll see improved graphics. Whether or not there’ll be changes made to the gameplay, or if there will be additional content is unclear, but if you did not get a chance to experience the game back then, perhaps come next year you could.
No official announcement has been made, but the listing does hint that we could be close to getting one, so stay tuned and check back with us at a later date for more details if there are any to be had.
When it comes to writing code, there are many ways one can go about it, but usually what developers try to do is be as efficient as their coding as possible to help ensure that whatever it is that they develop doesn’t impact performance. However it seems that gamers are speculating that this might not be the case with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Speaking to TorrentFreak (via Kotaku), Voksi, a member of the Revolt team of game crackers claims that Assassin’s Creed Origins isn’t performing as well as it could be on computers due to Ubisoft utilizing two forms of DRMs in the game. For those unfamiliar, DRMs are basically tools that help to prevent piracy and have been used in various digital media, like songs or movies purchased through storefronts like iTunes to prevent them from being copied and redistributed illegally.
According to Voksi, “Basically, Ubisoft have implemented VMProtect on top of Denuvo, tanking the game’s performance by 30-40%, demanding that people have a more expensive CPU to play the game properly, only because of the DRM. It’s anti-consumer and a disgusting move.” Unsurprisingly Ubisoft has since denied those claims, and while they are confirming the use of DRMs, they suggest that the use of the DRMs would have “no perceptible effect” on the game’s performance.
They add, “In order to recreate a living, systemic and majestic open world of Ancient Egypt, where players can witness all of its stunning details, its beautiful landscapes & incredible cities, in a completely seamless way with no loading screens, Assassin’s Creed Origins uses the full extent of the minimum and recommended PC system requirements here: while ensuring a steady 30 FPS performance.”
It has been a long wait for fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise as Ubisoft wanted to take some time off and rethink major aspects of these games. Assassin’s Creed Origins is the title that’s supposed to bring some of the changes that Ubisoft has come up with during this time. The game’s official release is not that far off anymore and Ubisoft has now published the official 4K launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed Origins.
We normally see launch trailers being published on YouTube on the day the title is supposed to be released. If Ubisoft jumped the gun on this trailer, then chances are that it’s going to be pulled in a couple of hours.
The trailer is titled “Legend of the Assassin” and it tells us the story of Bayek, the protagonist in the new Assassin’s Creed game. The trailer features footage in 4K so if you have a compatible display, do check it out.
Ubisoft is gearing up to launch the new Assassin’s Creed title. It recently confirmed the post-launch DLC details for Assassin’s Creed Origins. There will be both free and paid DLC options for players. The title itself is going to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC come October 27th.
With the upcoming Microsoft Xbox One X being touted as the most powerful console released by Microsoft to date (and possibly amongst all the consoles at the moment), and with Microsoft making claims that it will be able to handle games in native 4K, one would expect that running a game at Full HD at 60fps would not be an issue, right?
Unfortunately as far as Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Origins is concerned, it looks like the company has yet to settle on a framerate for the game. This came about after a report was posted onto YouTube in which YouTuber Dee Batch mentioned that the game on the Xbox One X would allow gamers to run it at 1080p resolution with a framerate of 60fps, but Ubisoft has since come forward to address those rumors, essentially saying that they have yet to determine anything.
In a statement provided to DualShockers, “It is too soon for us to say, as of today as the game framerate has not been locked yet. Our goal is take full advantage of the hardware horsepower to deliver the best possible experience on all platforms. Assassin’s Creed Origins will use dynamic resolution rendering, so the resolution will adapt to ensure a smooth frame rate and the best image possible in all situations.”
This doesn’t mean that the rumors aren’t true, but for now it seems that Ubisoft is still trying to determine what the best balance is, but for gamers who are planning on getting the game and/or the Xbox One X, here’s hoping that the 1080p @ 60fps mode will be realized.
A very interesting announcement has been made today by Ubisoft and Square Enix. They’ve confirmed an Assassin’s Creed and Final Fantasy crossover today. The two development teams will be “paying homage to each other’s gaming universes” as part of this new collaboration. To mark the start of this partnership, they have unveiled a piece of artwork at this year’s Gamescom which features Bayek from Assassin’s Creed Origins and Noctis from Final Fantasy XV.
Diehard fans of both series will have noticed the easter eggs that have been hidden by the team to signal the unofficial start of this partnership between the two franchises. One such easter egg was included in the most recent Assassin’s Creed Origins Gamescom trailer.
“This collaboration is the result of being huge fans,” said Ubisoft Montreal game director Ashraf Ismail, adding that “There’s a lot of respect between the two teams and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the opportunity to pay homage to each other’s work.”
This partnership will kick off on August 30 when Final Fantasy XV players who have obtained the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event will receive a familiar Assassin outfit for Noctis.
The free Assassin’s Festival DLC will be released for Final Fantasy XV on the very next day. The DLC will transform the town of Lestallum and new activities will be available for players to participate in.
Assassin’s Creed Origins, the latest addition to this popular franchise, is going to be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 27th. It’s also going to be available at launch for the Xbox One X on November 7th.
Ubisoft has without fail for the past few years released a new Assassin’s Creed title on an annual basis, save for last year where they skipped on it. However the company did announce earlier this year that the franchise will be back in the form of Assassin’s Creed Origins, and now during Gamescom 2017, they released the game’s cinematic trailer.
Note that prior to this we actually got a glimpse of the game via the gameplay trailer, so this cinematic trailer basically gives us a more storied look at the game. Assassin’s Creed Origins will be taking place in Egypt, and the trailer does a pretty good job of setting the scene up for players for when the game is eventually launched.
As for its release, last we heard Ubisoft confirmed the game’s launch for the 27th of October. The game will be released on the PS4, Xbox One, and the PC. There was no mention of the Nintendo Switch so for Switch gamers, you probably shouldn’t hold your breath for now. Maybe future Assassin’s Creed titles could find its way onto the platform, but for now it looks like Origins will be passing on it. In the meantime the game appears to be available for pre-order with a $800 Collector’s Edition for the more hardcore fans of the franchise.
