After a year in hiatus, Assassin’s Creed is coming back.

Once again Ubisoft has presented us another chance to parkour and hidden blade our way around a historic time period. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, a game that I approached with extreme caution, I’ve been thinking about the past and future of the series as a whole.
Sometimes, it’s the games that aren’t meant to be scary that frighten us the most. Maybe it’s their unsuspecting nature catching us off guard, or that just a brief moment of horror in an otherwise happy experience is enough to unsettle even the toughest of tough guys (and gals). Whatever the root of it, if these games aren’t keeping you up until all night playing, they’re keeping you up all night for an entirely different reason.
The transition into Fall brings with it a number of certainties: a change in the leaves, pumpkin spiced everything, and another entry in Ubisoft’s killer Assassin’s Creed franchise. Thanks to the fine folks at the PlayStation Canada Lounge, Button Masher had a chance to go hands on with the game a month before its launch. Here’s what we thought!
After the debacle last year surrounding the lack of female representation in Assassin’s Creed: Unity and the series as a whole, it seems things may have finally started to turn around in the industry. Thankfully, this year’s E3 sported an exciting number of new cool female characters, and we may finally get some diversity in our gaming protagonists.
