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 (http://www.assassinscreed.com).

It's funny but I have been tracking this game ever since I heard it was being made by the makers of PoP and SC (a long time) and I was wondering for a while when the name of the game and a trailer would come out.

I looked at Gametrailers.com today and saw a trailer for a game called Assassin's Creed and thought "I couldn't be the game...could it?" so I looked at the trailer and was very happy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes, this game looks great. I'm going to be very interested in this game. The game looks good so far ,and I hope that when gameplay vidoes are released it will look good. BTW, is there any gameplay videos up now?

I have a feleing this game there will be multiple weapons to kill with. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

I think this forum's color is to match with the color of one of the assassian's robes. That is just my guess though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif. I think it will be kinda like Hitmen in some of the ways you can kill your enemies like strangulation, swords and etc.

edit: I've sene a bow so there will be archery in this game most likely. Sweet!!!

Well this is kinda like Sam Fisher in a way! If you switch hes Bowcross with 20CK and the knife he has is.. well kinda like sams! Only the assains one is more ..Complecated lol. But I dont see anything negative about the resembalence (if its spelled wrong shoot me)to Splinter Cell or POP Both are my favorite kinda gameplay! And the fact that they mixed SC and POP creatores can make this a very intersting game and pherhaps even better then POP and SC. I know for sure I preorder it as soon as I can. With SC as my favorite and POP is quite like SC and a very good game(s) in this we will featuers from both is exciting!

Yeah but look what happened to pop.
SOT = Awsome Tight Controles, great grafix and awsome gameplay
WW: Still Awsome tight controles + awsome game play but Glitchy Goodness.
T2T: Slightly Less Glitches, but weird-*** Grafix in some character models.

Unless Ubi really Works on the sequals and they take more than a year for making then fine... series it is.

I'm almost sure that I will have to upgrade my PC again. I had to do it with T2T. If you want to play the game like it was meant to be played. Because I managed to play T2T on an unsupported video card when I had some problems with the new one. The old one worked just fine. The graphics weren't impressive, but I was able to finish the game.

Apart from that, i'm having some problems with the game site. That is, all i get is a dark blue band across the top of the screen, with Ubisoft and various menus, and then just a black screen below. Nothing else. Am i missing something?
I've tried going through the posted link on page one, and also manually typing in the address, and same thing.

I never said that POP T2T has the best graphics out there...
But it does matter which video card do you have. I can post some screenshots taken with both video cards and you will see a big difference.
My point was that if you want to enjoy the game on PC you will most likely have to upgrade.

IF it's true that us Xbox 360 owners don't get this game then Ubisoft is making maybe the biggest mistake EVER, wasn't it GRAW on the Xbox 360 that sold quite a good number of copies? and since PS3 and Xbox 360 are somewhat at the same line performance wise why is it so hard to make the game to the system that's NOT as complicated to code games to?
And by the amount of threads about this problem I'm confused that noone at Ubisoft has said anything about this..

Keep your hopes up Jan. AC may reel in enough sales to get ported to other systems. Although PC isn't really a great money-maker these days. Not enough HardCore gamers, and that's what the companies want...except Nintendo who keep trying to attract non gamers into gaming.

Orlando, whether or not it makes enough money to be ported to PC isn't the issue. It's the fact that we (PC owners) have to wait until it does. By the time PC owners get their hands on it, it's way after everyone else has already played it, said how wonderful (or not) it was, and are onto the next thing, which we're just starting. It's simply not fair. PC owners miss out on a hell of a lot as it is!
And yes, the game might not do very at all, in which case we won't ever get a chance to play it.

Bah, will all the pro-PC gamers please stop whining? A PC is not an entertaining system at heart, though some use it as such. If you want this game then just buy a darn PS3. Sure, it'll be a bit expensive, but thats the price. Also, remember that PC-gamers actually get most of the exclusive titles on the marked. Why should the consoles give up their few exclusive titles to the PC when the transfer never happens the other way around? Besides, action games like this works better with a joypad than a mouse and keyboard. (IMO anyways.)

Very good point. Action games are always better on consoles because of one thing. Control. Keyboard and mouse is not ideal for playing actions games. They are great for first person shooter and others but action games are better on consoles.

Also does anyone know when Ubisoft might release more information on the game? Is there a another game show or convention or something coming up anytime soon?

Wake up to the real world mate. Some of us actually have a life and have bills and expenses and can't waste all their money on buying every console out there just to play a game.
I hate people saying such **** about PC users.

Re the controls, it's not your problem how hard or not controlling an action game is. It's ours. And i for one have never had a problem using mouse and keyboard.

Yeah, you're completely right. I mean, there isn't a single joypad for PC's anywhere in the world. I want to apologise for all PC gamers, for we have been so wrong all this time. Forgive our ignorance please!!
[/blatantsarcasm]

The rest of your post just makes you sound selfish to be honest. The whole "Well they did it first!" attitude is pretty immature, but oh well.

Bottom line: maybe you have the money to piss away on a brand new PS3 but I, as well as the majority of the people here, sure don't. If we want to play the game on our PC's, why should that bother you? It doesn't affect your gaming experience in any way, so why complain?

I can see your point about a "real life" as you put it, although I have to admit I'm a bit suprised that you can't even save up 700 dollars if you start today. It's about prioritizing really. I don't know your habits but I'm alcohol and smoke free. That means loads of extra cash to spend on other "addictions" like gaming. I've got bills and I've got other expenses, but since gaming is sort of my main hobby, then I put away enough money for that. You can too, except if you live in a third-world country of course.

Besides, don't you think PS3 users should get something for their 600 bucks? Exclusivity is one of the main reason people buy consoles, and many PS3 (and possibly 360) users would feel ripped off if all the games suddenly became available to everyone else.

Also, illegal downloading of games via file sharing programs have had an impact on game sales, especially singleplayer games since many multiplayer games need CD-keys to work on the net, thus many developers should move to consoles (and then especially PS3, as I've heard BluRay is close to impossible to copy.)

And about the controls... I DID put "(IMO anyways.)" at the end, just to clarify. It's my opinion, that's all. I'm just saying that if I could get it with a mouse and keyboard or a joypad, I'd go for the joypad, and I think most people would. This might be subject of discussion of course, but I know from experience with for instance the PC version of Onimusha 3, which is a direct port, that a joypad is favorable.

@FCY-JMDK-WLKY
Well, you're right about the joypad, although I don't know if people are gonna buy one just to play this one game. If a porting-trend is due to come and more action games like Assassin's Creed would come to the PC then I guess it would be worth it, but I really don't see this happening for reasons discussed in my reply to Mouse03.

To reply to your accusation of me "sounding selfish" and being immature, I'd really like to say "Right back at you!" but I'll resist. Honestly though, I think you should grant console owners the few exclusive titles they have. There's no reason to buy a console if you can get all the same games on the PC. I really wish you would drop the accusations and explain to me why my arguments are fallacious, instead of throwing insults my way. You didn't really answer them, you just brushed them off as immature and selfish.

Look at my reply to Mouse03 for the answer to your monetary issues.

Lastly, the only reason why I care about you getting console exclusive titles on your PC is the same thing I've said all along: There is no reason to buy a PS3 if I could get the games without one. As mentioned earlier I would feel ripped off. You would probably feel the same if you've saved up 600 bucks and it's all a waste.

I wouldn't really call those insults, but I guess you might have perceived them as such. So let me clarify:
<LI>"Bah, will all the pro-PC gamers please stop whining? A PC is not an entertaining system at heart, though some use it as such. If you want this game then just buy a darn PS3." You can buy a PS3, so everyone else who wants to play the game should just "stop whining" and do the same? To me that's a selfish statement.
<LI>You want the game to stay PS3 exclusive because if it was released on PC as well you'd feel ripped off - why? Why do you want to deny other people a great game just because you want it to be special for your console? Can't you see how that would look selfish to others? I have an xbox, but I didn't whine when Halo or other exclusive games got ported to other platforms. In fact I thought it was a good thing, because that way other people could enjoy the great games I was playing without having to pay a lot of money for an xbox they wouldn't really use for anything else. I guess we just don't see eye to eye on that.
<LI>The immature bit: "Also, remember that PC-gamers actually get most of the exclusive titles on the marked. Why should the consoles give up their few exclusive titles to the PC when the transfer never happens the other way around?" - you're basically saying "Well they did it first!" and that whole attitude is immature IMO. Things like that only promote hatred between the different platforms and result in more console wars, which is never a good thing. An eye for an eye will make the world go blind.

Also note that I never actually called you selfish and immature: I said your post made you look selfish, and the whole "PC's had exclusive titles first so we can do it too." attitude was immature.

As for the money issues: I simply can't afford to spend that much money on a console. It's not that I don't have the money, it's that I have different priorities. Even if I did spend the 700 dollars on a PS3, the Bluray disks will make games even more expensive than they already were.

I'm sorry. My post was a little.. umm.. off. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, I agree, but if you could express it in a less offensive manner, I'm sure people would apreciate it. But the point is that we shouldn't be fighting. We should be standing together. Gaming is something we all enjoy and games of all types should be shared by all platforms (although most of the gaming industry is ruled by money so they're not). I would rather have a good conversation than fighting about it. But that's just me.

Selfish in what way? I'm just saying that if you want this game and it's a console exclusive then go get a PS3 (or 360) as it's the only way. Of course we don't know for sure if it's exclusive at all, but from (reliable) info I've gathered so far, no port is planned as of yet.

You want the game to stay PS3 exclusive because if it was released on PC as well you'd feel ripped off - why? Why do you want to deny other people a great game just because you want it to be special for your console? Can't you see how that would look selfish to others?

I guess we just don't see eye to eye on that.
This I can very well understand. To be perfectly honest, I'd have to say that I think you're in fact a bit selfish yourself to say this, as you obviously want this game for yourself without cashing out 700$. That is quite selfish in my opinion. "I want it too! Me, me, me!" But I do understand how you feel though. I would probably say the same in your position, but as a future PS3 owner, I just feel that I should get something extra out of those 700$. I have a quite powerful PC too, but I'd rather see it on PS3, as the controls and ermm... comfort (couch) are preferable to me. Plus, PC owners have truckloads of exclusives already while the PS3 is gonna need good games and then especially exclusives to sell. In the long run, I'd like developers not to ignore the PS3 and more PS3's sold equals more games developed for it, hence the PS3 desperately NEED exclusives. It was like this last generation too. Xbox had Halo and a few games ported over from the PS2 with some extras, the PS2 had the most exclusives and the big N had their own franchise, like they always do. (They also had Resident Evil. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif ) This was basically the deciding factor for many, including myself. I bought both a PS2 and a Xbox to cater both my Halo and MGS needs, but many chose the PS2 above the others because of the third-party exclusivity line-up. I fear that if the most prominent games (like Assassin's Creed) are going to be ported over to other platforms, then the console won't sell and it'll die out. I don't want that to happen, so I wanna see Assassin's Creed PS3 exclusive. The other consoles (and the especially the PC) have so many already, while the PS3 have lost many to the 360. However, I'd love to see this game ported maybe a couple of months after it's console release. That would be 100% ok with me. As long as I get the game first and that it's the main focus for the developers to make the game for PS3, I'd for PC owners to get their hands on it too. But something we should demand, as the 700$ should count for something.

- you're basically saying "Well they did it first!" and that whole attitude is immature IMO. Things like that only promote hatred between the different platforms and result in more console wars, which is never a good thing. An eye for an eye will make the world go blind.
To me complaining about exclusivity when you're a PC owner is very obvious hypocrisy, as you already got litterary thousands of PC exclusives already, and not one of them is being ported to the consoles. (Ok, a few, but they're mostly poorly ported with degraded graphics and arcade-ish gameplay features for example Battlefield 2 and Call of Duty. The PC versions for those games were much much better. To be frank they're not really ports even. More like another game in the series that just really looks like the PC version.) And I hate to break it to ya, but the console wars are just perfect for us consumers. Hard competition has it to lower the prices quite a bit. I for one is happy as can be for these arguments.

Also note that I never actually called you selfish and immature: I said your post made you look selfish, and the whole "PC's had exclusive titles first so we can do it too." attitude was immature.
Ah, well that's good at least. Just be careful with those words, as they can make yourself look just that, immature.

As for the money issues: I simply can't afford to spend that much money on a console. It's not that I don't have the money, it's that I have different priorities. Even if I did spend the 700 dollars on a PS3, the Bluray disks will make games even more expensive than they already were.
Exactly! Just like I said, you need to get your priorities straight. You can't have it all, so choose either to get a PS3 or drop the *** or liquor. (For non-british speakers: the word "***" doesn't refer to homosexual, it's simply another word for cigarette, so go easy on me.) That's what I do anyways. If you don't prioritize Assassin's Creed that much, then tough luck. Sorry, but life's a bloody arse sometimes.

About the first bit I totally agree. As long as it comes out for multiple consoles (and configured unlike which T2T was quite badly ported to PC. >insert console key here< to jump or whatever.) it's fine. Now on to the next bit... I know the point is that we shouldn't be complaining, but it's hardly our fault that games are PC exclusive (and I'm not saying it's your fault that it may/may not be PS3 exclusive). If you want to blame someone, blame the companies who made it. Plus I don't think (I may be wrong) that some of the games (e.g. strategy games) would work that great on consoles because of the console controls. As I said earlier I think that all games (with mabye the exception of strategy; depending on how it would work) should be made on all platforms.

Heh, just in from ermm... Kikizo.com:
"Assassin's Creed is a new franchise that kicks off with a PlayStation 3-exclusive game of the same name. The game is set during the Crusades in the early 12th century, when assassins were able to target both warring sides. You play one such assassin, Altair, who serves as a crucial cog in this particular wheel of time."
It would seem that there's an awful amount of confusion about whether it's PS3 exclusive or not. All the sites keep coming up with contradicting statements. My guess is that nobody (except the guys at Ubisoft) really knows anything yet.

Now that's what I'm talking about. You obviously don't prioritize games that much and hence you won't get as much of it. If it's not that important to you then forget about it for a while and wait for an eventual port for the PC, if it ever arrives. Since you don't care too much then jolly good, you won't care that much if you're gonna play it or not either, right? I'm tempted to say, though, that if you're a normal guy, friends aren't that expensive to have really. You shouldn't have to bribe them to keep them. Pets aren't so expensive that you don't have any money left for anything else, I should know. I have a cat and it's not really eating away at my wallet. As for family, I guess if you're a father (or mother) then by all means prioritize your kids, but I can't imagine that you haven't got any money left for other activities. Most parents do. I can see why you're not very keen on me nosing in your private affairs, so I'll let you be, but these are just suggestions I'm coming with here.

Well, obviously. I mean I'm not the one complaining here. I'm gonna buy a PS3 and be 100% content with that. I've got a quite powerful PC too, so no worries. There's just lots of PC owners here that complain about AC maybe not coming to PC. If you understand what hypocrisy means then I guess you just misinterpreted the sentence because I'm not blaming you, I'm just saying that you should be content with the exclusive titles you already have and just be glad that console owners aren't nagging on about how no PC games are being ported to consoles. Heck, as a fellow PC user, I'm content. The only reason I'm buying a PS3 is exactly that: There's gonna be some really good console exclusive games out there and I want it all. So all in all, I'm just arguing that PC users shouldn't complain about console exclusive titles when they get the most exclusive games of all the platforms.

Exactly! This is the same argument I use to explain why action games don't work that well on PC. Of course there are reasons the PC get all the funkiest shooters and RTS's. Console users generally accept that, but then PC owner should do the same with action games.

Playstation 3 = no current owners, due in six months or so.

X-Box 360 = few million current owners, more to come as availability increases.

Playstation 3 games = probably going to be in the neighborhood of $60 to $70 per title due to Blu-Ray encryption. New technology is more expensive, you know.

X-Box 360 games = $60. This may lower by the time the PS3 is released, though I don't expect it.

Profits from Playstation 3 sales of "Assassin's Creed" versus potential earnings of same game on the X-Box 360 = not even close to comparable until there are just as many PS3's as Xbox 360's.

I'm willing to bet good money that if UbiSoft wants to turn a huge profit (and any capitalizing company that operates in a fee trade economy does), "Assassin's Creed" will be shipped for the X-Box 360 and the Playstation 3 around the same time, probably no more than a month between the two. My feeling on it being pushed onto the PC is iffy -- most console-to-PC ports just flatly blow chunks of foul vomit all over the place.

So if you want that $700 to count for something, I don't suggest taking on the mindset that this game is going to be it. Exclusivity of gaming titles is becoming a rare thing, as it is, generally reserved for games that are produced by the parent company of the system upon which they are released. Microsoft has Fable and Halo. Sony has Final Fantasy, God of War, and some other varied titles. Very rarely is a game stabled to a solitary platform by a third party developer who already deals on all popular gaming systems, console and PC alike. And Ubisoft delivers very, very, very few exclusive titles.

To go off my rant and deliver a tiny side note: the PC is more gaming platform that you think. There is a reason the next generation consoles are being built with technologies derived directly from PCs. If the only thing a PC was good for was business and academics, we'd all own Macs.

My two pennies. Now play nice.

Well, you've gotta understand, I'm not talking about the companies profits or anything regarding the probablitiy of the game going multiplatform here, it's really more of a point of ethics I'm trying to press here. I want the game to be PS3 exclusive at least for a good months time, and I just state my reasons for doing so.

Well, pardon me for being so 2000-ish, but the reason the PS2 was considered by many as the best of the three in the previous generation was exactly their exclusivity. They had the best third-party support. Anyway, it's not like I'm buying PS3 for one freaking game. It's mainly MGS that drives me, but also all the other good ol' PS exclusive titles like GT and yes, Final Fantasy. Exclusivity sells, and that's a fact. I'm living proof of that. Actually, Sony would earn a lot of cash by giving Ubisoft money just to keep it on PS3.

The thing I fear you see, is the day when there's no difference what console you buy, because they all got the same titles. Everybody knows that the three are about equal in terms of technical prowess, so no big difference there. What it all comes down to are two things: Price and exclusive games. Price is usually not much of a problem for dedicated gamers. Hell, I bought all three consoles of the last generation just to be able to play both Zelda, Halo and MGS. In fact, I think the main reason why people buy consoles at all is their exclusive games. Otherwise people would just go for the PC forgetting all about consoles. I know I would. That's why consoles need exclusive games.

And I'm really talking about exclusive for a certain amount of time here. I don't care if the others get it or not, as long as I, as a PS3 owner, get it first. (I'm sure I'll buy the other two eventually anyway though. At least the Wii.)

As stated before, the main reason people don't convert to PC is the exclusivity of the console titles. (I guess virus infections and trouble like that could be a reason too.) I've got a powerful PC. I do play quite a lot of PC games, but those are mainly shooters and RTS's. Action games, driving games, RPGs (yeah, some PC-only RPGs rock, I know) are mainly exclusive to consoles and that's why I got to have it all. As you said, PC-ports from former console exclusives usually suck hard.

I was just reading through the posts in this part of the forum and I just have to say "wow" because by the looks of it not one person drinks here. Either you are trying to cover up bits and peices of your life and trying to appear like a good natured citizen, but damn lol. I drink but I will keep my age private, as it is frowned upon in the province I live in. I'm just being careful-ish. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to insult anyone here but c'mon why lie about a little minor thing like drinking? Smoking, drugs and all that ****, yeah stay away from that so please never do drugs...they aren't cool. But be true to yourself and be who you are, not someone you aren't because THAT is what's really cool. And if a bunch of punks and posers disagree with that statement, well literally knock some sense into them.

Now to Assassin's Creed. First off, I love the research you did on the retractable switchblade CrackerMonkey. Finally someone else brought attention to the exact origins of the concealed weapon. I didn't bring it up beforehand because I didn't really have any actual proof behind my claim, but you did an incredible job.

And this whole issue between PC and consoles has got to be put to an end. I'm not taking sides on this, I prefer to be a neutral party. Both sides of this little dispute have interesting points that have to be taken into consideration. Gaming is a pass-time of mine, as I'm sure with countless others. And some are hardcore, which is no problem whatsoever. And some are very "lite" core, meaning they like to play games, but only when you are really truly bored or something, I don't know. But at any rate, this thread is supposed to be about the brand-freakin'-new franchise Assassin's Creed. I am thoroughly impressed with this game, and blah blah blah. It will take the gaming experience to an entire new level. There that's my post with this thread. Ta, ta! lol.

Anyway I thought that mabye we should move off the PS3 topic (kinda getting old after the few full days I've been reading the posts instead of studying for exams... oops) and move on to things like exactly how big the place will be, how cool the assassin's hide out will be http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and just general facts about the game.

Hello everybody, i don't want to start a new thread, and this one seems to be the most appropriate for me to post my new info:
Article1 (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=140106)

Article2 (http://www.ferrago.com/story/7756)

"a spokesperson told us, 'Assassin's Creed is confirmed for PS3 and other formats haven't been confirmed as yet.' Make of that what you will."

"it could be the case that the stunning looking new adventure is being created for the PC in addition to undecided consoles"

"weight has been added to the Xbox 360 argument by word from E3 that demos of the game actually utilised the Xbox 360's controller. How bizarre."

I hope this helps you in some way.

The game will have less success than any of the pop games if it doesn't come out for pc too.. I have played the game both on pc and PS and can tell that the pc version is much too intuitive.. even my friend who has the PS version often made mistakes with the moves and couldn't run on a wall the way he wanted.. With the keyboard+mouse at home with my game he doesn't make these mistakes even though he's used to playing on PS at his home.. whatever..
The game looks great and when i heard that parkour will be integrated in the moves... =] Fast gameplay assassination is what i always wanted.. after all not all assassins are like the one in hitman http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

you have to think about the people who convert from console to PC compatible. it will be done, no doubt about that. and i surely doubt that anyone would buy a console just to play 1 cirtain game.
