Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed Connection Proved at Last?

Not long after Ubisoft announced Watch Dogs, rumours and conspiracy theories began to float around that the game was going to be linked to the Assassin’s Creed series, possibly even as a full entry to the series’ canon.

While playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag earlier today, I stumbled across some evidence in the Abstergo offices (Ok, less ‘stumbled’ and more ‘hacked’) that directly links the two game brands together. Continue reading Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed Connection Proved at Last?

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was one of the best-looking next-gen games I saw at this week’s ¬†Eurogamer Expo. Hell, it was one of the best games I played there full stop.

So how about it readers? Did you head down to Earl’s Court to play some pirates? And have you made up which generation you’re going to opt for when the game is released? Continue reading Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer Shows Infamous Characters
