The Official ** Assassin's Creed ** Thread

I know this game has been talked about in the Xbox thread but I think it needs it's own thread. This game is gonna be da bomb!! Release date is 9/25 as of now..

Summary:
The game 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.


Latest Trailer (thanks taffer)

I'm very excited for the title. Gameplay and cool cinematics aside the setting of the game is really what interests me.

Mine too. By far.. Let's hope it doesn't disappoint!

Second, behind Bioshock for me, but it is damn close. I already pre-ordered the SE at play-asia with the 12" statue. $75 shipped, which is damn good considering a SE here with just a metal tin would run about the same with tax.

I was just going to say that the game play looks like PoP. I do like the look of the game though. Is this single player only?

Me too. Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones was one of my favorites.

NG was the epitomy of adventure/action games for me


the moves were so in-depth, they reminded me of Soul Caliber or Shenmue, all of which are right up my alley

I highly doubt the release date will stay 9/25 but if it does I'll be buying this one before I get Halo for sure. This and Mass Effect are my two most anticipated games this year.

I'm going to combine Michael Corvin's and noonan's sentiments: Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Assassin's Creed are my holy trilogy for 2007.

That gameplay footage looks incredible.

Agreed, JasonF. I can't wait to play this and wonder if they'll have any gameplay in the

You do know this is being made by the PoP team right? So yeah it probably will be a lot like PoP. Assassin's Creed is not a pure action game like Ninja Gaiden. It is a "stealth" type of game where you blend in with crowds of people until you find your mark and then you assassinate him and try to escape. It also has PoP style platfroming.

Why would the release date be changed? It has been in development for quite a while and it looks to be almost completed. 9/25 seems reasonable to me.

Yeah I have heard that the game is supposedly set in today's time or the future, and people are going back in time Matrix-style to find a certain assassin or something. I highly doubt they are searching for the heir of PoP although that would be pretty funny.

Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Assassin's Creed all in a three month period. Another reason why I don't watch much TV anymore. Too many great games so little time.

I didn't pay too much attention to this game until I was watching an old episode of Diggnation and that got me hooked.

I like the bitch slap he gave the monk looking guy at the beginning of the trailer. I wonder if that's a special move.

Bingo. If it were to happen, I'd pick this up before Halo any day of the week but having it come out on the same day would be a really bad move for sales.

As far as I know, there will be none -- which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. I can't think of a game less suited for multiplayer.

Amen to that. I'm tired of developers shoe-horning in craptastic multiplayer modes just to have that bullet point on the back of the box.

Not exactly game related but thought this would be of interest:

I'm pretty pumped for this game. As is my gf who is a Middle Eastern Studies major. But I'll probably do the playing while she watches.
