Current news[edit source]
As many of you have probably noticed, Wikia has introduced a new feature - Game Calendar - that is currently being tested on Assassin's Creed Wiki.
The Calendar is displayed on most of the wiki's pages in the right sidebar, below the search box and page count, and displays a recent or upcoming video game premiere. If you click on the "open calendar" link, you'll be able to browse through the whole calendar, with entries for many games that will premiere in the upcoming weeks and months, and links to Wikia's wikis about most of the games in question, which will give you more information on each title.
Now that the calendar has been running on your wiki for a few days, we'd like to know what you think about it. If you have any comments on the functionality and look of the calendar or suggestions for its future improvements, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments! We're looking forward to hearing your opinion about it.

The poor sales of Red Faction: Armageddon have officially killed off the franchise. THQ chief executive Brian Farrell confirmed this in a conference call yesterday, saying "we do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way."
The upside to all of this? Volition, the former developers of Red Faction, are not going down with the franchise. They are instead working on Guillermo del Toro's first video game project, inSane, so not all is lost.
As y'all can probably see, the wiki has just had a well-deserved major makeover! A shiny new mainpage, a new background, and far more to come! After the great work the community has done to create articles at this wiki, and with the upcoming release of Red Faction: Armageddon, this was well deserved.
The Content Team will also be periodically be adding news to the wiki about information about any Red Faction game, ranging from new weapons to new characters (about, for example, the awesome Mr. Toots). However, you can also add news yourself! Just add the "News" category to your blog and it'll be added to the mainpage, easy as that!
See you in the next news blog!
