    Ubisoft€s Award-Winning Montreal Studio Creates New Intellectual Property

    Today Ubisoft, one of the world€s largest video game publishers, announced the development of a new video game franchise: Assassin€s Creed. Assassin€s Creed is being developed for PlayStation 3 by an all-star team from Ubisoft€s world-class Montreal studio €" the studio responsible for acclaimed franchises such as Prince of Persia and Tom Clancy€s Splinter Cell. The Assassin€s Creed franchise will combine compelling new gameplay, superb graphics, and an immersive and sophisticated storyline to deliver an epic experience that will launch the action genre into the next generation and beyond.

    €œAssassin€s Creed is going to push the video game experience as we know it today into an entirely new direction,€ said Yannis Mallat, chief executive officer at Ubisoft€s Montreal studio. €œAssassin€s Creed€s compelling theme and storyline experienced through the next-generation console will captivate audiences and affect them on the same level as an epic novel or film.€

    The first game in the Assassin€s Creed franchise is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history.

    Ubisoft has a strong record of creating some of the industry€s top-selling video game franchises and anticipates that Assassin€s Creed will experience the same success.

    €œUbisoft has established itself as a creative force in the video game industry by developing new intellectual property and turning it into multimillion-unit selling brands,€ said Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. €œOur goal to introduce three new brands into the marketplace every two years is working. With Assassin€s Creed we€re introducing a franchise that will establish itself as the must-have next-generation game for the next-generation gamer.€

    The first game in the Assassin€s Creed franchise will make its worldwide debut at E3 in Los Angeles and will be available to consumers in 2007. For more information and the trailer, please visit www.assassinscreed.com.

    Thanks for the news... I can't wait to play this game. What can I say... POP is my favorite game. I can only hope that Project Assassins will be at least half as good as POP.

    I have something with games in an "ancient" setting. Guess I'll watch at least the trailers (if they come out that is).

    You know what wud be Ultra Dope?

    If the game was ACTUALLY like an Assasin thingy

    I dont know if anyone of you know what im talking about

    But in "The Chronicles of Riddik" there's this one scene where the enemy dudes come and the sun on that hot place is rising and Riddik Kills the guards one by one by jumping them and ambushing two and even 3 at a time Using his Dual Daggers

    And no one knows who's doing it

    Now Thats Assasin-ation-ism-tastic-fantabulous-ness

    So the forum is up as well.
    Can I just suggest to change the page coloring. It's really a pain to look at, so can it be replaced with some other background?
