Montferrat - in the Piedmont region of Italy - produces some of the world's finest wine, and contains the 16th century Sacro Monte di Crea, a UNESCO World Heritage site. But forget all that nonsense: in Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed, Montferrat is just an ugly dude with half a bowl cut and a goofy accent who gets got real good by antihero Altier. In this new two-part video, follow Altier as he identifies his mark, leaps from roof to roof like a really angry Aladdin, sticks

'Second Life meets Steam' is what we called A World Of My Own back when it was announced, which sounded an enticing prospect whichever way you cut it. Now, we're going one step better, and teaming up with AWOMO to give you a chance to win a lifetime's subscription to the games-on demand download service.
This social world, complete with designated areas for game downloads and so on, is currently in the beta stage. You can get involved with this for free, thanks to a deal between

The latest video interview with Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond has brought some devastating news for anyone hoping to get their hands on a demo of the medieval sneak-'em-up.
With the game about one month away from release, there'll be no playable demo beaming its way through the pipes of PSN or Marketplace.
Raymond explained that as Assassin's Creed is a sandbox game, it's too difficult to pick a portion to give away and let players experience it.

Beowulf: The Film will be out in November, and will be sharing a publicity budget with a Game of the same name. The film is produced by Robert Zemeckis (this isnt the last Zemeckis reference in this weeks Trailer Trash - youve been warned), and features an all star cast including Angelina Jolie, John Malkovitch, Anthony Hopkins, Crispin Glover, and others. This trailer for the game, however, stars a sword falling into a puddle over and over while some repetitive-looking

We should have expected it really - from observing GRAW - but the PC version of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed has been confirmed as releasing last.
Puffing and wheezing at the rear, Altair's PC action-adventure has been pushed back to early 2008, while PS3 and Xbox 360 cousins get to go na na na-na na as Assassin's Creed releases on consoles this

Here's a neat little Assassin's Creed trailer, giving an insight into the near-invisible skills of the game's lead killer, Alatair. Showing a group of shadowy crusaders debating around a table, the climax is a surprisingly subtle one.
Ubisoft has been touting Assassin's Creed about recently, and we were fortunate enough to get our own hands bloody in some combat action. While we can't dish all the info yet, when we're given the go ahead we'll fill your eyes with first-hand

It's been a long time coming, but Codemasters has announced that they've crowned their first world ruler in ArchLord - and presumably the hilarious named 'Icecube' will be singing about it all night long.
'World ruler' however is a bit of a misnomer; God like is more apt. Aside from the cursory benefits of some bodyguards and a pet wyrm to fly you across the world as you see fit, Icecube will be able to talk to all the inhabitants of Chantra simultaneously like some omnipresent

We've heard little from the new Alone in the Dark game for some time but it's finally making a bit of noise again with the arrival of new screenshots.
Atari's Alone on the Dark game, of course, marks the return of the survival horror granddaddy that first appeared in the 1990s. In this reinvention of the series, events take place in present-day with New York's Central Park the stage for shocks and scares. Enjoy the latest screens, but don't worry... you're not alone.

When we hopped over to Eden Games' offices in Lyon to get all the goss on the new Alone in the Dark, the game that could potentially steal Resident Evil 4's crown, we were told that the aim was to produce the first fully interactive game world. We were told that any on-screen object could be picked up and used in a manner that you would realistically use it. Well, now we've got a some screenshots which reveal that plan is coming into shape.
This shot of Edward breaking out of a

Aside from a cowl and a knife, the other key attribute for a Hashshashin is the ability to remain hidden in plain sight. Much has been made of our boy Altair's ability to hop skip and jump across the rooftops to shy away from prying eyes. A similar amount of hype has been pumped into Creed's concept of social stealth, where the townsfolk will recognise and react to you based on your reputation. In this latest batch of screenshots we get some more evidence he can get involved with
