Hey,

I noticed this as mentioned in the Off Topic thread, but nothing really was said.

http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.c...hood/news/11830.html (http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/brotherhood/news/11830.html)

This page appeared on the AC website yesterday, and it links to a Flyer you download. The flyer is advertising a job opportunity at Abstergo.

Has anyone e-mailed or got a response from the e-mail in the flyer yet? It looks interesting, but I won't be able to participate with school coming up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif


EDIT: Here is the flyer link:

I don't think that it would be dangerous/a scam, as it is on the official website.

I don't think it's a scam or anything but from what the flyer says, ubisoft can send us on an imaginary(Din;t find the rught word) archeology excavation.

Your link is either broken or its has been removed.

IF you're referring to this one (http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/uk/acb/flyer%20external.pdf), it's probably an invitation to the Beta.

The article has been removed from the news
section... strange.

EDIT: I doubt it's the Beta, as it said fan-made on the article.

Abstergo, bringing us the world of tomorrow, today

Surely that's a misquote, it should be:

Abstergo, bringing us the world of yesterday, tomorrow http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

That's probably why it got taken down, a lot of people wouldn't have seen that and started spamming emails to Ubisoft lol

Good point, I think they did get loads of emails, as the title of the article had been changed, "(FAN MADE)" was added, and then it was removed. :P


And what do you mean about the world of yesterday? :S I'm confused.

You said Beta 4 times in that sentence, so technically you're a bit over the top with the Beta action too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Anyway, this has more speculative relevance to the Beta than many of the other threads I've seen so it's not that bad lol

I think they moved it because everyone was saying it's a Beta.

I think this is most likely somebody trying to come up with an in-universe way to explain the multiplayer for Brotherhood, ie Abstergo recruiting people to play as the Templars.

It's a nice idea but you could tell its a fan project simply because of the design choices and the punctuation, which aren't up to Ubisoft's high standards for their promotional material.

Interestingly, the .cc domain is, according to Wikipedia, "the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an Australian territory. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus also uses the .cc domain, along with .nc.tr."

What do we make of that, according to the lore?

I actually sent a email and they actually mailed back and it was from Leila Monroe, who in the game is supposed to be dead , and then when I asked her how she was alive she mailed me back saying she can not talk about personal info, then I emailed back, apoligized, and she mailed back saying that abstergo will look over my application, but something I did notice was that in the second email one of the words was misspelled so I do think this was just fan made.

Interesting...

And it is fan made, it said so on the announcement :/ Why didn't anyone read properly?

well this may be like the Splinter Cell Conviction thing... for it they started leaking stuff like this such as false job postings and such and we had to basically clue our way through it to find codes and unlock some stuff...maybe they're doing the same for Assassin's Creed now?

I have no idea. I expect it's just a fancy way to get on a mailing list or something.

I am so tickled by the idea that Abstergo is doing this, it is certainly a fun way to drum up interest.

Yeah, it's the symbol of the upcoming Assassin's Creed comic book, which is based in Russia.
