Update 3.12.12

A lot has happened in the game industry since I last posted. Luckily, I’ll be posting again soon (probably tomorrow or Wednesday) so keep an eye out for something being released this week. I’ve certainly got a lot to talk about…

Thanks for reading and keep on playing games,

Well, it has certainly been a while since I posted last. During that time, a lot has gone on in the gaming industry. The Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed series saw new releases before the holiday season hit, Rockstar Games released it’s amazing trailer for the upcoming game for L.A. Noire, and speaking of Rockstar, the talk of GTA V being released in 2012 has made it’s way around the web.

Of course, all of these topics will be covered in future posts, however, I’ve been really impressed by Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood lately. With that said, this entire post will be dedicated solely to Assassin’s Creed.

First and foremost, a new FREE DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will be released on December 14th for both Xbox Live and Playstation Network. It will be titled: “Animus Project Update 1.0” and will include a new game mode (Advanced Alliance) and a new multiplayer map: Mont Saint-Michel. While that may not seem like a lot, who cares? It’s free!

Secondly, the Assassin’s Creed series may see another addition in 2011. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, said the following response to a question asking about an Assassin’s Creed release in 2011:

“There will be something around Assassin’s. That’s the only thing we can say.”

Ubisoft executives said that it is their goal to have Assassin’s Creed games released on a yearly basis.

Well, if Ubisoft plans on releasing a new game each year, then they can hopefully expect to see some serious bank considering that Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood did so well on it’s first week. In Europe, AC: Brotherhood sold over 1 million copies in less than one week. In all, the Assassin’s Creed series has sold over 20 million units.

For those of you wanting to find out more information on the AC series, please check out the awesome Assassin’s Creed Wiki page.
