Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

There's Assassin's Creed games, Assassin's Creed comics, and an Assassin's Creed movie, but Ubisoft's acclaimed action franchise isn't done growing yet. Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed: Arena, an all-new board game launching February 26 for $50.

Created in partnership with Cryptozoic Entertainment (makers of Walking Dead and Adventure Time board games and card decks), Assassin's Creed: Arena is a 2-4 player tabletop game that, as you might guess, focuses on killing.

Players will take out targets or other players to score "Victory Points" as they move across the rooftops of Constantinople. You can play as Templars from Assassin's Creed: Revelations like Shahkulu, Odai Dunqas, Oksana Razin, and Anacletos.

You can preorder the game today through Cryptozoic's website. For more information about Assassin's Creed: Arena, including full instructions on how to play, check out a detailed post on the Ubisoft Blog.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, which launched last fall, is the most recent entry in the core series and has shipped 10 million copies to date. A new installment in the main franchise has been released every year since 2009, but Ubisoft has yet to announce 2014's game.
