The lights are on
A cryptic email and website have revealed new information on the upcoming Assassin's Creed game. Warren Vidic, that insidious genetic scientist from the future in Ubisoft's time-hopping action-adventure, seems to have a new plan afoot. He's sending out emails to folks on the Ubisoft mailing list with links to an unusual website that appears to reveal a number of new weapons usable in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Here's an image of the email received by our executive editor, Andrew Reiner. Just click on the image to head to the website.
The teaser site includes images of five new weapons that appear in the upcoming game (axe, fan, syringe, dagger, and claw), plus a sixth weapon that requires completion of a puzzle to view. Between the email and the info on the website, you ought to be able solve the puzzle. Stop here if you want to try the puzzle by yourself.If you're not in the mood for cryptic glyphs, we've solved the puzzle, and can tell you that the image below reveals the six glyphs you'll need to click in order to complete the puzzle. The first image can be found on the original email from Warren Vidic. The second through sixth glyphs appear after you click on the images of the other five weapons on the website, following the brief blurry video for each.
Once you click on the six images, you'll be privy to a view of the sixth new weapon, a switchblade, plus a download link to several different sizes of a wallpaper image for your desktop. You can see images of all six new weapons in the gallery below.

1.) Does anyone else find it odd that one of the available weapons is a prosthetic arm? Don't know we know of a certain one-armed Assassin who might make good use of a such a prosthetic?
2.) Does anyone know what the timer on the teaser site is counting down to?
The claw looks wicked awesome.
a fan as a weapon? i wonder if ur gonna play as multible characters?
wow. nice switch blade. :)
Awesome! Im really pumped for the new game now.
fan + claw = win!
the claw looks sick! I wonder how the syringe will be different from the poisoned dagger...
@doogan: I think the syringe looks a bit too modern for it to be used along with the axe and the dagger. Methinks this is going to be something Desmond uses rather than whoever he's flashing back to (Ezio? That's what i heard, anybody hear different?)
I can't wait for this to come out. I am going to get it no matter what.
cant wait to get my hands on that syringe!
wow this looks pretty awesome
Is this the third full title or another portable gap filler? Pretty cool that they have hidden content for those willing to dig it up, but i'd prefer some plot tips to what weapons are upcoming. That would even make a bit more sense, i doubt the scientist cares much which weapon you use to kill people..
.. after the "OMG" moment at the end of ACII I can't wait to figure out wtf is going on in this awesome series.
Peh... join facebook group... CLOSE
Didn't game informer have a story about Ubisoft's plans to release a new AC game every year. I imagine the story won't be ending for a while, and, by the time it does, it will suck.
