Rob Zombie and Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore team up for Assassin’s Creed short

assassins creed unity pc specs arent kidding around e3 04
The San Diego Comic-Con panel for Assassin’s Creed: Unity on July 25 will debut an animated short from musician/filmmaker Rob Zombie and The Walking Dead (the comic) co-creator Tony Moore, inspired by the game. The session will primarily focus on Unity‘s protagonist Arno Dorian, so it’s a fair guess that the short will as well.

Zombie, the former frontman of heavy metal band White Zombie, has split his creative energies over the last decade between his solo music career and directing horror films such as House of 1000 Corpses and the rebooted Halloween. He has previously dabbled in the world of video games, as the composer of the scores for Twisted Metal III and Gran Turismo 2. Moore is best known as an artist for co-creating The Walking Dead with writer Robert Kirkman and providing art for the first six issues. Zombie and Moore previously collaborated when Moore illustrated a cover for Zombie’s Spookshow International comic compilation series in 2003.

In addition to the animated short, the July 25 panel will feature a demo of Unity and a Q&A with the developers, in which they’ll details about Arno, the game, and new announcements for the franchise.

assassins creed unity patch delayed paris refurbishment

The fourth patch for Assassin's Creed Unity, originally scheduled to arrive on December 15, has been delayed until later in the week, according to a post from Ubisoft. The company cites a commitment to "rigorous quality control" and a desire for more polish as the reason for pushing back the update.

"As stated last week, we’d expected to release the patch today (and we know that many are anticipating its release)," the statement reads. "But we are choosing to hold off until we can give you the improvements we’ve promised. We are committed to delivering major performance improvements, which requires that we refurbish the Paris map and that will take a few more days to hit the high level of quality our players deserve."
