Assassin's Creed slays Web

Secretive project from Ubisoft Montreal dishes info on the Internet; site features trailers, screenshots, more.

Since its showing behind closed doors at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2006, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed has vaulted into many gamers' must-have lists. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game has been the subject of countless rumors, yet has largely maintained its shrouded secrecy and only recently showed in-game footage to the public. Now, the game is stepping further out of the shadows as the Assassin's Creed official Web site has now gone live. The site features a few of the game's trailers, a few screenshots, a developer diary (which talks about the hero's missing finger and touches on the game's big surprise), and links to message boards. Assassin's Creed is scheduled for release in 2007.

This game is going to be brilliant. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is kinda like a futuristic version of this game but set in the Star Wars universe. I wonder what the sequels will be like for this game.

Krullis_robin I don´t think it will be any differens between xbox360 and Ps3 in this game. Cause ps3 just overrated. NO NOT REALLY DONT FORGET THE PS3 HAS THE SIXAXIS

I hope they can only live up to their own hype, since many next gen game are falling in that area. But i'll get the game regardless because i have a fetish for covert games.

Everything Ubi Montreal has learned from the Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell and Far Cry games wrapped up into 100% next-gen (no current gen assets!) goodness. Ok.

"Areola54 multi plat games will never be a must buy. only must buys are exclusives. rent for sure." Quoted like a true idiot. If you think this game isn't a must buy, then you apparently haven't watched the in-game video

Ubi has started to capture my attention with some of their newer innovations. I never liked Tom Clancy games.

Hey everyone makes good points. I'm just saying that if the ps3, with all its supposed power, doesn't look that much better than the 360 version then don't be surprised. If the 360 version, happens to run at a smoother fram rate than the ps3 version, again, don't be surprised. Everybody is saying that the ps3 should destroy the 360 in terms of graphics, I guess we'll have to see. And as I stated before, alot of ppl are under rating the loss of the rumble feature. Especially in a game like this where the gameplay deals with alot of walking through crowds and bumping ppl, you're going to have an important missing element of the game.

@ Ogreslayer you say "Sony has screwed gamers over 3 systems w/ either malfunctioning products, poor early title support, or their horrendous excuse for customer support. Microsoft is Microsoft, they walk around with more baggage just cause they are the big guy. They have faults as well but over 2 system launches they haven't pulled near the crap that Sony has" STOP WITH THE B/S PLEASE!..... yo i usually don't get into this gamewar nonsense but if you're truly a gamer, you wouldn't falsify facts except if your allegiance is with one side... the way i remember when i bought an xbox a month after launch, the gamepad itself was a monstrousity.....the system exploded (yes exploded) because i played it 5hours....they recalled systems and had a complete overhaul (I lie?).... the first ps2 i got was a pal version cuz i lived in the UK at the time; not once did it have a problem...yo i ain't being biased but it's just a fact that both Microsoft and Sony are major players in the entertainment industry hence any one single mistake they make is going to be heavily critisized, even if the problem is rectified perfectly... Only difference is Microsoft, with all their power and glory should really be leading given their vast resources (vast is an understatement).... they shouldnt give us a next-gen console that needs external hardware to be next-gen....they should be able to accept a loss (and u say sony is greedy, ironic).... lemme exemplify: Sony has problems with their batteries, they recall it.....Windows is a walking problem.,but it is microsoft, hence they know what they're doing.... Fact of the matter is these companies aren't charities, THEY'RE NOT TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF YOU, they're trying to make money; it is business.... There is no good samaritan business it is that simple Microsoft tricks consumers into thinking their 360 is cheaper by stalling the releaseof hardware that's needed for it, Sony puts too much in their console, calling it"future proof" but we all know it's all a tactic to push blu-ray and make money in the process..... But REMEMBER No one screws over anymore than the other...even Nintendo has their ulterior Motive...they talking bout how it appeals to all audiences (Guys, the managers are RUNNING billion dollar businesses, not helping you) Hence stop critisizing and go with the flow of being a customer to be entertained...it's up to you to decide if only one console makes you happy and note: Inflation is at its worse right now.........1

I'm hyping it to get at least 9.0. Probably higher, like 9.2-9.6

Hey i started this and Ogreslayer has finished it. PS3 will yank the money out of your butt and i cant believe they're doing this to their fans in Europe.

FFmasterVII

i agree with Ogreslayer except that the reason im not getting both is because im broke, not because i dont like sony or microsoft. i love em both. As far as Assassin's Creed goes, it looks incredible. i cant wait to play all the way through it. I'll be gettin the 360 version cause i, like the others, dont have the kind of money to be dishin out 600 bucks for it.

Good thing it's being released for the 360. No way in Hell I'm dishing out $500+ for the PS3 anytime within the next year. Nope, not even for MGS4, Warhawk, Resistance or Killzone 2... As much as I really, really, really, REALLY want too. ~.~

whooooo. the ps3 version sounds fun. especially the part where u go thru the crowd, jump to stuff, and bump into 20,000 different things because ps3 has the power to do all of that, but wait! no vibration? the remote feels dead in my hand! and the ps3 is gonna seem dead in my face.

This is really gonna be a stupid game generation, 80% of the titles are not just non-exclusive they are on at least both the HD systems. It boils down to what titles will you never get a chance in hell to get on the other system, meaning the games are produced by Sony or Microsoft. You can always go hyperfanboy, but if you are a true gamer and can afford either system, you have the money to get both and that should be your goal. The amount of titles out there in that 20% void is gonna be some of the best games made for the next 5 years; it would be foolish to miss them just because you have no love for the console maker. With reasons that are not only childish but ill-informed and biased. Sony has screwed gamers over 3 systems w/ either malfunctioning products, poor early title support, or their horrendous excuse for customer support. Microsoft is Microsoft, they walk around with more baggage just cause they are the big guy. They have faults as well but over 2 system launches they haven't pulled near the crap that Sony has. Sony has a problem that no other console manufacturer has ever had. They talk to much BS, they have now overhyped every system they have launched. PS1-overhyped, PS2-overhyped, PSP-overhyped and now they have overhyped the PS3. Again offering a system that neither outperforms its chief competitor, nor will it live up to the ridiculous specs that they have put out there. Its going to repeat the mistakes of not only MS but itself buy trying to launch in more then one region but launching with a third the product their competitor tried while combining it with a consumer base that has twice the demand for their system over the other. If you are expecting ridiculous 360 destroying graphics from a PS3 don't, If you think the game library is going to be this eclipsing mass like the PS2's don't and If you think that Sony is gonna keep their XBL clone free or cheap... DON'T!!! This is Sony, probably the second most money grubbing set of bastards to walk this planet. They are not gonna keep anything cheap; expect $80 for AAA title "Collector's" editions and Having to buy required in-game items for $3 a pop. P.S. For those wondering M$ holds #1

Dante200X, then how about a total absense of BC in the early PS3s? At least 360 had a BC on Halo and Tom Clancy franchise, and some other many games. 360 users had COD2 and PGR3 first, then GRAW and TES4, then now see, they have literally overwhelming line-up. Whatever your taste is, they prepared almost everything this time(even JRPG)-from SCDA in 10/19 to Mass Effect and Forza 2 in Q1 2007. Microsoft is actually helping users; I heard and felt this.

"funny what company was it that almost completly abandoned it's first-gen buyers with almost NO new games and practicly no backwards-compatable games? oh yeah microsoft" I wonder if Superman can see through the thickness that is the Dante 200X's skull? As the man said...ignorance is bliss. :roll:

I bet half you PS3 fans havent even got an HDTV to give a sh** about 1080i, and the other half cant even pump out 1080p. But just remember: Its SONY, and when it comes to customer service, they dont even bother. Ignorance is bliss guys. funny what company was it that almost completly abandoned it's first-gen buyers with almost NO new games and practicly no backwards-compatable games? oh yeah microsoft

Seen both the X06 video and the gameplay demonstration. Very interesting indeed and a fine effort from the guys behind the Prince of Persia series, Ubisoft Montreal. I wish them luck and Godspeed.

EDA1125 So the conspiracy looks like that the guys ur killing found a portal to modern day, or depending on when u kill them and how it changes stuff in modernd day such as a modern day history book that opens on completion of certain task, kinda like the newspapers in hitman. just some thoughts but they sound cool ====================================================================__________So its more like Back to The Future then? You know with the realtime newspaperchanging thing and the possibility of corrupting the time continuum and wiping out your own character's very existence if you're not careful?...
