So I stumbled across this on the unfiction.com forums and found it pretty interesting, atleast it is if you're as nerdy as me about AC.

It began in early December (or atleast, thats when the guys over on unfiction first picked it up) with an encoded message containing a website address led to a website about the templars, where you could fill out an application to "join" the templars, apparently. Over the next few weeks those guys got various encrypted emails with tasks to complete their initiation, but then the game seemed to take a different turn and is now based around www.abstergo.net (http://www.abstergo.net).

I'm not entirely sure whats happening right now, only that some sent in a resume and got a "job" etc., but forget if they've recieved anything since.

If you've no idea what an ARG is, though, you should look 'em up on google or something, they're pretty interesting.

Edit: By the way, I have no idea if this ARG is at all related to, or created by, Ubisoft.

I haven't heard about this but it looks well thought out. I even tried calling the Most Wanted hotline just to hear the recorded message they have.

I find it funny the wanted line is an American number, if you paid attention in AC2 you would know they are in Italy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Eh, these days you can be in Mozambique and have a working US phone number. 206 is area code for Washington state, and that exchange is handled by International Telecom Ltd - a VOIP\callback\toll free service provider. It's magic, I tell ya.

I like the site, it looks pretty well thought out. The domain name is registered to a gent from Arizona, so unless Ubisoft is pulling one off on us again, it's likely not their idea.
