The video opens up with a narration over a rendition of mythical creature golem and how it was an early representation for artificial intelligence back in 500 BC, which was originally designed by its creators to serve and protect.

Fast forward to last two decades and in a not-so-far future, technology has advanced to the point of creating driver-less cars and inventor Jake Skell has helped shaped that future with his Skell Technology by turning many myths into reality.

He moved further to come up with lethal drones on 2001 that helped save many U.S. lives during war in Afghanistan. Establishing headquarter in Aurora Island, they were successful in making an autonomous system in recent years.

In an unfortunate turn of events, Skell technology drones were used to kill a political candidate and media sees them as a global threat now. All contact is lost with Aurora, leading Ghost Recon team to investigate their radio silence.

Although actor Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Walking Dead) is roped in to play villain in Breakpoint after being introduced through an operation update for Wildlands, he was nowhere to be seen within the trailer above but hoping to see him in future.

Ubisoft has decided to make PC version of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint skip Steam and making it an Epic Games Store-exclusive title, as usual to their stance with The Division 2 and pre-order for Gold, Ultimate or Collector's Editions are already available up there.

Auroa Island is a perfect setting for Ghost Recon sub-series open-world tactical shooter as it is filled with different mountains, swamps and even a volcano, something we will probably see to play some key-part it its gameplay or narrative.

Al launch, the game will let you choose from four different classes with specific abilities and you can swap between them at your will. Breakpoint will release more classes over time and plans on to offer new major expansions after each four months.

Assassin's Creed Unity Positively Review-Bombed on Steam

Steam community review-bombed Assassin's Creed Unity to praise its giveaway by Ubisoft last week.

Although action-adventure game Assassin's Creed Unity from developer/publisher Ubisoft came out in 2014 and not has been a trending title for a while, it suddenly became a topic for discussion for gamers worldwide lately.

After iconic cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris caught fire on April 15, the French video game studio donated €500,000 for its restoration and offered free copies of AC Unity, which led to fans positively review bombing it on Steam.

Last week, Ubisoft offered PC version of the game for free so that people can virtually explore and admire this 856 year-old historic Cathedral. Gamers become nostalgic going back to a French Revolution-era Paris and to re-discover this prominent sight.

It generated a surge of complimentary reviews all of a sudden by Steam community on its Store page and for a game that previously had a "mixed" status, has now garnered a "very positive" reputation after recent wave of reviews came in.

AC Unity players are expressing gratitude for allowing them an opportunity to revisit and appreciate what Notre-Dame was and one even joked that they will need to burn down a pyramid to get Assassin's Creed Origins for free.

Ubisoft took a break from the franchise after a rocky launch of Assassin's Creed Unity back in 2015 but as it seems, players have forgiven them for that now and surprisingly, Steam has not even flagged it for off-topic review activities either.

Assassin's Creed Unity Free on Uplay Now

To stand in solidarity for the fire ravaged iconic Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris, Ubisoft is giving away Assassins Creed Unity for free on Uplay.

Even if you don't keep up much with international news, you may have heard about the devastating fire at iconic Notre-Dame cathedral of Paris on this Monday, April 15 that has moved everyone around the world in shock.

To stand in solidarity with everyone affected by it, French video game developer/publisher Ubisoft has announced to donate €500,000 for its restoration work and offering free copies of Assassin's Creed Unity on PC via Uplay, available until April 25.

Set during French Revolution era of a fictional Paris, AC Unity focuses efforts of protagonist Arno Victor Dorian in exposing forces behind wheels of Revolution and its gameplay follows a stealth based combat system in an open-world.

Entire set pieces of this installment are from a time when cathedral of Notre-Dame was vandalized and players are to enter the central church chasing Templar Sivert at one point, which remains a very notable part of the game.

While designing the in-game version of this renowned monumental piece, senior level artist Caroline Miousse said in a 2014 interview that they went through a lot of blueprints and Assassin's Creed historian Maxime Durand helped of course.

Although she never visited it before working on the project back then, she looked at a lot of references and talked to people to know how it's like to be there. However, the one you will see in AC Unity is not the one from French Revolution.

Much like Eiffel tower, Notre-Dame de Paris is an iconic part of the city skyline that is quite hard to miss because of a massive spire aside from its two towers and has gone through an extraordinary recreation process during development of Unity.

Rebuilt after 18th century with wood, it suffered the most during recent fire and Miousse actually changed it a bit to make it look cool. Whenever players get to climb on it, they have a chance to see Paris from very top and it is an amazing view.

RELATED: New Assassin's Creed Game Coming in 2020?

Entire world has already pledged over $900 million collectively for reconstruction of the 800 years old historic Cathedral with more coming in every day and French government has planned on rebuilding it within next few years.

Already donating an amount to the cause, Ubisoft is doing their part as well by inviting players to appreciate its glory with a free giveaway of Assassin's Creed Unity, which obviously is the possible best way of paying homage to Notre-Dame in video games.

New Assassin's Creed Game Coming in 2020?

Apparently titled "Assassin's Creed Legion", rumor has it that Ubisoft is planning next game of the series to set in Rome and to release on 2020.

After wrapping up Assassin's Creed Origins and Assassin's Creed Odyssey in two back-to-back years, developer/publisher Ubisoft announced back in 2018 that they are skipping 2019 for releasing any new titles from the popular action-adventure stealth game series.

Recently, a new rumor suggests that the next Assassin's Creed game will be released at some point in 2020 and would be set on Rome, contrary to what many have predicted earlier about the game being set on feudal Japan or China.

In an attempt to discover its roots, AC franchise went back to Ancient Egypt in Origins and then moved to classical Greece of 431 BC for the next installment, Odyssey. Currently code named Legion, a new AC game is coming in 2020 according to a latest buzz.

On the message board discussion about upcoming Watch Dogs 3 rumors of the website Fireden, it is suggested that the premise for forthcoming Assassin's Creed title may take place somewhere around 169 AD, when the reign of Marcus Aurelius was ending.

The same source also suggests that players will be given the choice to pick between a male and female assassin character named Cassius or Lucia like Alexios and Kassandra from like the previous Assassin's Creed release.

These lead characters would likely be descendants of characters from either Origins or Odyssey. Focused mostly on Assassins and politics from the First Civilization history of Rome, both newcomers and series veterans will find things they enjoy.

Ubisoft is targeting "Assassin's Creed Legion" to release on platforms like PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as next gen consoles, which are yet to be announced from both Microsoft and Sony. Until any new information arises, these are all we know for now.

Although the series has already visited Rome in 2010 through Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, it would still be nice to revisit once more long after. However, it would be wise to take the news with a grain of salt since there is no more concrete evidence other than the leaked image.
