Assassin's Creed Project Legacy stalking Facebook

Ubisoft announces social role-playing game for popular online networking destination due out "soon"; title will feature Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood integration.

61 Comments

Facebook is the world's largest online gaming platform. It has games about farming, fishing, mafia wars, and lots more. What it doesn't yet have is a social game based on the popular Assassin's Creed franchise--but that will soon change.

Ubisoft today announced Assassin's Creed Project Legacy, a brand-new game due out on Facebook "soon." Project Legacy will serve as a companion to the upcoming console Assassin's installment, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, by affording players of both games added bonuses.

Killing time just got more literal.

By playing Assassin's Creed Project Legacy, players will unlock "extra content" for Brotherhood. Unfortunately, Ubisoft did not provide additional specifics as to what the complementary content will be.

On the flip side, Brotherhood players will be able to unlock up to 25 exclusive missions in Project Legacy, which will allow them to earn currency and experience points within the Facebook game.

According to Ubisoft, the advent of Assassin's Creed Project Legacy marks the first instance where the French publisher has integrated a social game into a console title.

For more on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which is due out on November 16 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, check out GameSpot's most recent hands-on preview.

Its a good and bad idea at the same time If someone doesn't want to use facebook does that mean they are going to miss out on extra's? To be honest that doesn't seem fair to me.. They should include an alternative way for players to unlock these 'extras' for example through other achievements

Ugh. Games on Facebook? Depending on the awesomeness of the rewards, it appears that I will probably, albeit reluctantly, play "Project Legacy" to unlock AC: Brotherhood rewards. Of course, there's a slim chance that the FB game could be good. But I'm doubtful.

The in-game content that this unlocks better not be extremely small and/or stupid. this thing is pretty stupid. you just leave it open waiting for time to pass and click 'execute'.

I hate facebook and everything about it but I can see how this can be good for Ubisoft. More attention for them. I hope it does not have much of an impat on the actual game. Also, about the multiplayer, I am really looking forward to it. I think it looks like a lot of fun but I am really hoping it does not take away from any further games. Brotherhood is not technically Assassin's Creed three, so I think it seems sort of like a side project. I hope that the single player is still fun and if not, I pray that number three does not suffer.

Oh, hey I just thought of something.... Are there any Myspace users on here? go to my profile and report me as offensive. I'm serious. I've been trying to get my account pulled for 6 months because i can't remember my old E-mail login. My page url is << LINK REMOVED >> I'm not sure if just anyone can report users or you have to be a member but I really want my myspace account pulled.

It doesn't sound great. But it may give me a reason to use the fake money I somehow earned. I forget what they're called.

Uh hmm....OK. :| Can we say 'lame'? Really, I mean why is that even necessary? Thank god these are (hopefully) just 'bonus' crap and not something that's integral to actual gameplay. No Facebook, no amount of 'cool' games will lure me onto your site....nice try though (NOT!). :roll:

Interesting concept, but since I don't use Facebook, I hope that it doesn't prevent full completion of the regular game if you don't play it...

@ninjaroach81....i think this is a great move for AC the (mutiplayer) that is in online gameing we tend to stick to the shooters if it military,fantasy,sci fi,etc.but this is something never done before if they can pull it off this is gonna be one off the best online EXP. ever hunting each other down using the the city's as cover or to get an upper hand on whose hunting you with diff game modes this sounds like endless fun

Oh, so another game with no substance where people gang up on you just because you are sitting at level one with nobody on your friends list who plays.....Great that's just what we need. Assassin's Creed is a good franchise but I'll stick with the console versions thanks......

I don't like the direction Ubisoft is going with this franchise. One of the things that makes Assassin's Creed great is that it bucks the current trend of focusing on mulitplayer; that alone makes it stand out. Add in terrific gameplay and a great story, and you've got one of the most epic series to come out in a long while. That's what scares me about Brotherhood; adding the multiplayer element. There's just no way to exploit all the stealth and stalking elements in a mulitplayer match, much less an online social game. I don't know, but going online multiplayer with the franchise takes away a lot of what makes it special in the first place.
