Assassin's creed.

I had no idea Ubisoft Montreal are developing, which is awesome. Can't wait for this to hit the PC -- which is supposed to be part of the simultaneous launch. Initially was supposed to be a PS3 exclusive, but Sony lost the battle hehe. 

edit:

According to gamespot, it will come to PC after the PS3/360 simultaneous launch. So it is still coming, but a bit later. That's fine. At least this way Ubi won't have any excuses.

It seems like a console game to me, so I'll probably pick it up for 360.  Either way, it looks really interesting.  I'm curious to see where they're going with it.

Lance Bass had one. Milli Vanilli had one. Ubisoft had one. It took some time, but eventually all their poorly kept secrets came out, and in the gaming world, it means Xbox 360 owners will be very happy.

Ubisoft today finally revealed that its anticipated game Assassin's Creed will be coming to the Xbox 360, as many had suspected. The announcement comes a day after the publisher admitted the game would be headed for the PC.

The news settles one of the hottest topics in the gaming world this year, as debate over whether or not the game was sneaking onto the Xbox 360 in addition to the PlayStation 3 raged. Though initially announced at Microsoft's X05 event as Project Assassins in 2005, the game was first shown off as Assassin's Creed and revealed as a PlayStation 3 game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2006--an Xbox 360 and PC version was not mentioned.

Eyebrows were raised at other systems' exclusion, especially since it was originally revealed as an Xbox 360 title. Rumors ran amok all year, as a few believed the E3 demo was being shown on Xbox 360 dev kits, some sites said a loose-lipped Ubi rep confirmed a 360 version at France's Interactive Digital Entertainment Festival, and another Web site posted a preview of the Xbox 360 version.

For more on the game, peruse GameSpot's previous coverage or read GameSpot's new Q&A with producer Jade Raymond.

The opening sentence reinforces the fact that gamespot should stop trying to be funny.

UK,  August 29, 2006 - Sharpen your jagged-edge dagger and pull up your face veil because Assassin's Creed will be announced for PC this week - meaning it won't just be PlayStation 3 early adopters who get to feast on the game's throat-slitting glory at the beginning of next year.

News of Assassin's Creed's PC arrival appears in early copies of UK magazine PC Gamer, which subscribers received over the weekend. When pressed, a Ubisoft spokesman couldn't officially confirm the game's stealthy arrival on PC. However, it's likely an announcement will be made to coincide with the magazine hitting newsstands at the end of this week.

Check out the game:



Really worth a look! I love the crowd interaction. It reminds me a bit of Splinter Cell without the linearity. This gives me confidence for the new Splinter Cell, because it is being put together by Ubi Montreal and follows a similar concept.

It is introduced by Jade Raymond, the producer of the game, and part of Ubi Montreal. She is cute for a gaming chick heh.

Jade is pretty frickin' hot. I gotta respect her all the way.

Anyway, I've been looking forward to Assassin's Creed for ages! We used to hear the tales of the assassins and the Old Man of the Mountain* when we were children.

*Old Man of The Mountain was the wise man who had a castle on a mountain between Lebanon and Syria, and he created the assassins' guild. Awesome story.

The direction of this thread proves one thing to me. Ubisoft should put her face on the box with the tagline: "Made by this chick." Don't even bother with the name. They'll sell tons more copies.

Regarding Jade -- Pretty girl, pretty voice, pretty intelligent chick.

Regarding the game -- Pretty graphics, pretty sweet looking game, pretty sweet open-ended type of gameplay.

I've been looking forward to Assassins' Creed for a while.

After seeing that 5 min gameplay video, that just reassured my thoughts on this thing.

What Jade said and showed on the IGN video is definitely worth a look at the game, too.

The control scheme sounds interesting. I am thinking if there is a PC version, the control pad might make the most sense. Just sounds that way, given that the buttons will be mapped like a person's body -- one key for head, one key for left arm, one key for right arm, one key for right leg, one key for left leg. I dunno if I see that style working on a KB/mouse at all, myself.

Oh, and Jade says that they already got some stuff in mind for sequels even, too!!

When is this coming to the PC and consoles in 2007???

The twist to the game was revealed a while ago.  Well, I don't know if it's a twist or something you learn really early, but a lot of people seemed pissed.

Interview w/ Jade Raymond on this game

Quote
ON ... NOT LISTENING TO THE MAN AND CHOOSING YOUR OWN PATH
"It's a seamless world, and you can go wherever you like. At some points, you'll have targets in every city open. So sometimes, you're given a list of all the guys to kill, sometimes you'll have one guy at a time, [like] at the beginning of the game. Sometimes there will be multiple guys, and you can even, for example -- if you get all of your investigations out of the way -- you can go to all three cities, investigate one target, investigate another, investigate another, go back to one city, kill this guy, do some free missions, [and then] go back to that city and kill the other guys. So really, it's up to you to play based on how you want to play, and what you're in the mood to do."
Sounds pretty cool to me.

Quote
ON ... HOW LONG YOU'RE GOING TO IGNORE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHILE PLAYING ASSASSIN'S CREED
"In each [of the three cities] there's three main guys to assassinate, plus about 30 investigation missions and several more side missions. There's also the asssassin's stronghold ... and a huge huge countryside that connects all of this."

"The game, if you're just playing the minimum -- like let's say out of the six investigations, you only do the minimum two, you don't do any free missions you really just do a straight path -- it's around 18 hours. If you do all of that stuff, it's probably about 40 hours."
Sounds of a decent length, to me -- for the straight path and if you possibly do everything.
I'm looking forward to the PC version of this. They better not botch the port.

Too big for DVD?

I fail to really understand how it could be too big for a dual layer DVD.  Tons of cutscenes? I mean, textures must be bigger for this generation, but apart from that shouldn't the code not really take up much more room?

Yeah, that's usually the case with most installations; choose the language and it's the only one installed.

This makes a hell of a lot of sense, given Kyd's past scores -- such as the Hitman games.

Jesper Kyd is going to score this game.

Oh hell yea!!!

Assassin's Creed Gets Kyd Score
by Carlos Bergfeld Oct 16, 2007 5:33pm CST

Famed Hitman series composer and British Academy Award winner Jesper Kyd will compose the score for Ubisoft Montreal's upcoming historical hitman action title Assassin's Creed (PC, PS3, X360), Ubisoft announced today. Kyd is known for his work on Io Interactive's Hitman series of games as well as another of the studio's properties, Freedom Fighters (PC, PS2, GCN, Xbox).

Kyd worked with Io again on the studio's upcoming heist shooter Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (PS3, X360), and his other projects include scoring Epic's forthcoming Unreal Tournament 3 (PC, PS3, X360) and Bizarre Creations' upcoming third-person shooter The Club (PC, PS3, X360).

Assassin's Creed is expected to retail for the consoles sometime in November, while the PC version was recently delayed until early 2008. For more on the much-hyped title, check out the Shack's own preview.

Jade Raymond's Assassin's Creed went GOLD for the consoles -- X360 and PS3.

Ass. Creed Gone Gold
Oct 25, 2007 at 9:00 AM - Andrew Burnes - 37 Comments
Available November 13th for those console thingies:

    Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced its highly anticipated Assassin's Creed video game has gone "gold” and is set to launch in North America on November 13, 2007. The title is one of the most anticipated games for the holiday season, arriving on the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft at the MSRP of $59.99 with the Limited Edition priced at $69.99 – rated "M” for Mature by the ESRB. In addition, those who pre-order Assassin's Creed at GameStop will receive an exclusive Assassin's Creed art book bonus when they pick up their game.

    "We've been working very hard for nearly four years to make Assassin's Creed a reality and now there is a confirmed date when players will get to experience the results of our efforts,” shared Jade Raymond, producer of Assassin's Creed. "This is a huge event for the team. Our biggest reward will be everyone having a lot of good solid fun.”
