Assassin’s Creed Interactive Game Coming To Facebook Oct. 1
Ubisoft hopes to eliminate what little free time gamers have, with new Assassin’s Creed Facebook Game
When it comes to adding extra value in video games, Ubisoft is one of the best in the business. From their rewarding Uplay servic and integration with 360 achievements–which in my opinion, is how Microsoft should have done achievements in the first place, instead of giving us useless numbers, give me items we can use in the game– to their latest Assassin’s Creed Facebook game. This new venture will have Ubisoft leading the pack in what they’re calling “companion games”.
The strategy game is being described as something similar to Castle Age or Mafia Facebook juggernaut Mafia Wars. By participating in Project Legacy you will be able to unlock extra content in the upcoming console game, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, which will be released on November 16, in addition to also gaining extra XP in Brotherhood.
Conversely, playing Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will unlock up to 25 exclusive missions in Project Legacy, as well as XP and in-game currency.
On the flipside, playing Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will “unlock up to 25 exclusive missions” in the Facebook game, as well as experience and in-game currency.
Game is now live and can be played here.
I’ve spent an hour or so playing Project Legacy, and it’s good. Very good. The UI is beautiful and fluid (very Assassin’s Creed Animus looking, the story is interesting and feels– more than any other Facebook strategy game I’ve played–like I’m participating in an interactive novel of sorts. Unlike other games like Castle Age, where they give you a bit of narrative, then allow you to just click away until you complete a task; Project Legacy adds addition dialogue and narrative after every click. This gives you a much more immersed feeling in the game and helps the progression of each memory and action.
