Assassin's Creed: The license all the way to the supernatural?

In recent years, Assassin’s Creed has become increasingly interested in the supernatural. An assumed choice can be explained by several reasons

The initial success of Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed is a recognized license that has lasted for many years now. While it does appear to be on the decline from some players’ perspective, the numbers show the opposite with an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla breaking multiple records. Still, it offers a much different experience than what was expected of the franchise at the time.

The Assassin’s Creed license owes its former success to realistic environments and stunning historical reenactments. With often quality storylines, these are clearly the points that have propelled the franchise to such a level of popularity. The supernatural dimension has always been present with the Precursors and Desmond’s story in the present. However, although much appreciated by players, this aspect has never encroached on or surpassed the heart of the license which was intended to be a real journey through time in a war between two factions.

In recent years, even if history has remained at the heart of games, Ubisoft seems to be making a real shift towards narratives increasingly focused on the supernatural and in particular mythology. A strategic choice can be explained by several reasons.

Why is Ubisoft exploiting the supernatural with Assassin’s Creed?

Without neglecting the historical dimension that is inseparable from the license, Ubisoft has been exploring new screenwriting opportunities a few times. We notice this change from the arrival of Assassin’s Creed Origins with the monster and Egyptian gods fights. By the way, Ubisoft announced a major update on the game more than 4 years after its release.

To come back to these scriptwriting novelties, we could also see them in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which was interested in depth in Greek mythology with Atlantis and its secrets. Lately, Valhalla has leaned heavily on Norse mythology and seems to be pushing it even further with the announcement of the Dawn Of Ragnarok DLC.

With this new DLC, we are far from the fights between Assassins and Templars at the heart of the French Revolution or the Italian Renaissance. But then why this choice?

First of all, because Ubisoft had to renew itself and reinvent Assassin’s Creed. The last installments before Origins disappointed many fans and the formula so magical in the past seemed to no longer work perfectly.

By choosing to keep its recognized historical dimension and to push on the side of the supernatural, the studio knew very well that it would have many possibilities and it is undoubtedly not for nothing if the last three chosen eras have consequent mythological lore.

Ubisoft is also trying to surf a wave of major hype about the fantastic or even mythology. Whether in the cinema, in series, or in games, productions that are interested in these subjects very often meet a significant audience.

Now is the time to question the future of Assassin’s Creed. Is Ubisoft going to continue its momentum to explore more and more the different mythological lores of history or will it go back to basics in terms of its themes? The question is asked and we will have to wait a while before getting the answer. Assassin’s Creed Infinity isn’t planned for just yet although the studio has said the game will be huge and innovative.

Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Unlock Stitch

Disney Dreamlight Valley’s new update has three new characters two of them are from Pixar’s Toy Story and one of them is from Disney’s Lilo & Stitch. Players will be able to unlock Toy Story’s character easily but it is a bit technical to open Stitch’s character. As Stitch requires little patience and multiple Sub-Quests.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to Unlock Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Unlocking Stitch

The new update has a Stitch character in the game but you will not find it in the Valley nor in any Realm. Unlocking Stitch will require you to find three different socks around the Valley which will lead to hidden Sub-Quests and then you will be able to unlock Stitch. The Socks are very easy to find as they are not well hidden but the thing is players will not be able to unlock Stitch on the first day, they will have to wait for 10 real-life days to unlock Stitch.

Now, the reason for that is whenever you find the first Sock, the next sock will spawn in the Valley after 5 Real Life days so, you will find all three socks in 10 days and then after completing the Sub-Quests, you will unlock Stitch. Players can also change their system time and date to 5 days onward when they find the sock to complete it in a single day but it would be dangerous because you can easily corrupt your save file of the game. So, be careful if you want to change the system’s Date and Time.

The Three Socks that you need to find in order to unlock Stitch can be found in the following locations.

1st Sock Location

The very first Sock that can be found whenever is on the small Island near Dazzle Beach. You need to make your way to the small Island and you will find a Sock named “Slimy Stocking”. Finding this will start a sub-quest of Donald Duck in which you will have to give the sock to him and find the clue in his house.

1st Sock Location

2nd Sock Location

After 5 days, the second sock will spawn in the Valley and you will be able to find it in Peaceful Meadows near the pond and the staircase of Dazzle Beach. The Chewed-Up Sock will be Goofy’s and it will start a sub-quest in which you have to return the Sock to Goofy and search his house for the Clue.

2nd Sock Location

3rd Sock Location

After 5 days of finding the second sock, the third sock will spawn in the Valley. You will find the third Sock in the Forest of Valor biome near the river. Picking up the Sock will start another Sub-Quest in which you have to find out the owner of Knitted Orange Sock and then search the owner’s house for clues.

3rd Sock Location

After finding all the Socks and the clues in the owner’s houses. Donald Duck will use the clues to make a Homing Beacon that you will have to place on Skull Rock. The Skull Rock is on the Small Island near Dazzle Beach from where you found the first sock. Place the Homing Beacon on the Island and a cutscene will play in which Stitch will arrive in a rocket to the Valley. After that, you will have to talk to Stitch and Donald and then you will have to place Stitch’s house in the Valley.

After placing Stitch’s house, you will have to interact with Scrooge McDuck’s board and pay 10,000 Star Coins for the house. Once Stitch’s house is built, Stitch will be unlocked and players will be able to complete their questline in the game.

Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Make Minnie’s Gingerbread Cookies

In the new Holiday update of Disney Dreamlight Valley, there are new cooking recipes added to the game that players can cook in the game and regenerate their energy while eating the delicious new recipes of the Holidays. One of the new Holiday recipes in the game is Minnie’s Gingerbread Cookies which was also shown in the picture from Disney Dreamlight Valley’s tweet for the update.

Making Minnie’s Gingerbread Cookies

Minnie’s Ginger Bread is a 2-Star Meal that is very easy to make because it only requires two ingredients to cook it. The ingredients that you are going to need are the following.

  • Wheat
  • Ginger

The main ingredient of Gingerbread Cookies is Ginger which will be hard for some people who did not have unlocked a specific biome from where it can be obtained. Ginger can only be gathered from the Forgotten Lands biome which requires 15,000 Dreamlight. Not only that, the Forgotten Lands biome is only accessible through the Sunlit Plateau biome which requires 7,000 Dreamlight so, it would cost a total of 22,000 Dreamlight to unlock the Forgotten Lands.

The players who are playing from the early access would already have unlocked all of the biomes and they can easily get it by going into the biomes and harvesting it from the ground. The new players will have to grind a little in the game by completing quests and Dreamlight Duties to get Dreamlight and then unlock the biomes.

Wheat is very easy to get as its seeds can be bought from Goofy Stall in the Peaceful Meadows you just need to plant the seed and water it, and then wait for a few moments to harvest it.

Once you have all the ingredients, go to any Cooking Station and add Wheat and Ginger in the Cooking Pot. Then Click on Start Cooking which will consume 1 Coal and the Minnie’s Gingerbread Cookies will be prepared. It is a very easy recipe and you can also gift it to other characters to increase Friendship level quickly.
