THQ, The Last of Us, Assassin's Creed 3 DLC - Shacknews Daily: January 24, 2013

Join Ryan Calavano on this episode of Shacknews Daily. Today's Stories: - THQ's assets are sold off at bankruptcy auction - Get a demo for The Last of Us if you have God of War: Ascension - Assassin's Creed 3 King Washington DLC begins on February 19.


First up, THQ's assets have been distributed to various bidders in its bankruptcy auction, with Sega getting Relic Entertainment, Koch Media getting developer Volition and the rights to Metro: Last Light, Crytek getting the Homefront IP, and Ubisoft getting the THQ Montreal studio and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Next, God of War: Ascension seems like a safe bet for Sony, given that it's the next game in a long-running and popular franchise with one of its most identifiable characters. Just in case that isn't enough, though, the company is sweetening the pot with early access to the demo of The Last of Us. Finally, the political aspirations of George Washington will start to become clear when the first of three Tyranny of King Washington DLC packs launches for Assassin's Creed 3 on February 19.
