Far Cry® 5

Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Rainbox Six Siege, Watch Dogs and a handful of other big Ubisoft series on PC are on sale for up to 75 per cent at Amazon.

In most cases, it's the bulkier editions of the individual games that are reduced, so you'll often find they come with extra DLC and season passes already included. Not a bad way to catch up on some of these, then, if you've been waiting for a sale!

Of the lot, the best deal is probably the Assassin's Creed Odyssey - Ultimate Edition for 24. This version of the Grecian stab-em-up includes the Deluxe Pack and season pass as standard to add to the already mountains of content the base game offers. You'll find a whole cache of extra gear, story content and boosts.

Assassin's Creed® Origins

The devil, they say, is in the details. This makes grim sense to me, as I'm being tortured by what seems to be my own personal demon, a foul creature which stabs at me from depths of minutiae that I can never seem to delve into to any satisfying extent. Percentages roar angrily around my head, and numbers course relentlessly through my veins. I wasn't always like this.

I only wanted to play Shadow Of The Tomb Raider.

I hadn't played a Tomb Raider game for about two decades, but I thought I'd give this one a go for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I was curious to see how far the series had come over that time. Secondly, it was free with Xbox Games With Gold.

Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood

The Assassin's Creed comic series has just reached a moment in the franchise's overall story which fans have long awaited - a point the series' plot arc has been building to for nearly a decade.

(If you're not up to date on the Assassin's Creed games up to Syndicate, beware spoilers below.)

Back in 2016, Ubisoft and Titan Comics revealed that the First Civilisation plotline which featured in multiple Assassin's Creed games would instead "culminate" in a new series of graphic novels.

Assassin's Creed® Origins

Ubisoft will hold its annual E3 briefing around the usual time - on Monday 11th June at 9pm UK time, or 1pm Pacific.

It will, again, be at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown LA - a swanky venue with, if memory serves, a lovely chandelier. Or you can watch online.

So, what do we expect? Well, Ubisoft has already said we will see The Division 2 for the first time. Massive's shared world shooter sequel was briefly confirmed earlier this year but as of now remains under wraps.

Assassin's Creed® Origins

Do you want to be like Neo from the Matrix? Maybe you just miss video game cheat codes from olden days? Either way, you'll be able to hack Assassin's Creed Origins on PC later this month via a new customisation interface.

Assassin's Creed® Unity

Ubisoft delved into the "perfect conditions for the perfect storm" behind 2014's Assassin's Creed Unity's launch issues.

As part of the talk '10 Years of Evolution of the Assassin's Creed Brand' at GDC 2018, creative director Jean Guesdon explained how Ubisoft iterated on each game as it built the franchise.

Unity started development in 2011, after work on Brotherhood had finished, and was designed to be the first real next-gen game for then upcoming consoles PS4 and Xbox One.

Beyond Good and Evil™

Ubisoft has emerged victorious in the long-running battle to stave off a hostile Vivendi takeover.

The publisher of Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Rainbow Six and Rayman has, over the last year, looked under real threat of being acquired.

Month on month, Vivendi steadily bought up shares until it finally owned 27.3 per cent of Ubisoft capital - close enough that it would soon be required to launch a formal takeover bid.
