Assassin’s Creed 4 Releasing In 2013 According To Dev CVs, Possible Announcement Tomorrow

Published

 on

The LinkedIn profiles of three developers associated with Ubisoft Montreal have revealed that the freshly announced Assassin’s Creed 4 will be released in 2013. For a brief time last night, the LinkedIn profiles of an audio artist, UI artist, and dev tester were updated to include “Assassin’s Creed 4” as projects they had worked on. The playtester’s profile allegedly dated the release for 2013. The information was quickly reverted to “unannounced game”, but not before being captured by the quick-witted folk at videogamer.com.

The release date falls within Ubisoft’s financial year ’14, which runs from April 1 2013 to March 31 2014. This information, in conjunction with the information on the LinkedIn profiles above, suggests that this title will be arriving as soon as Autumn (that’s Fall, for you Northerners), in keeping with past release schedules.

Assassin’s Creed 4 may be revealed as soon as the 27th of February, if the leaks posted on VGLeaks is to be believed. According to that information, Ubisoft is due to host an event on the 27th, in which it will announce the details of their new project.

We’ll definitely know more soon, and possibly even tomorrow. We shall keep you posted.

Thanks, videogamer.com.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
