The lights are on
The newly announced strategic iPad game is headed for release in just a few weeks.Even as we patiently wait for the release of Assassin's Creed Revelations, Ubisoft is sneaking another little surprise to AC fans this holiday season – at least if you own an iPad. Assassin's Creed Recollection is a new real-time board game designed for the Apple tablet. Details on gameplay remain scarce, but we've been told by Ubisoft that the game is built around assembling a virtual gallery of characters (represented by art from the console games). This collect-'em-all mechanic will come through some sort of "tactical political battles" (Ubisoft's words, not ours). The game promises an 8-10 hour storyline that includes 20 different missions, as well as a robust multiplayer system to politically combat other iPad owners in real-time. Plus, buy Recollection and you'll get a free copy of Assassin's Creed Embers, the animated short about the final days of Ezio Auditore.We'll detail more about Assassin's Creed Recollection as soon as we hear more about the mysterious project.

Jeez, you gotta have assassin's creed on consoles, film, and now iPads? There truly is no escape from the assassins. Nice.
seems pretty tcg-ish
Looks cool. Pity I dont have an ipad.
My beloved franchise, turned into a Cash Cow. I weep. D':
What is the deal with AC Embers?
I saw a trailer for it. There's something about taking a character that you gotten to know while playing the three games, and making a short CG film about his final days that doesn't sit well with me. I'd rather they put this in the game.
Not bad. I hope it's more than a cheap adaptation.
Aren't they implementing some tower defense and RTS elements in Revelations? Seems they need to focus more on one thing instead of pulling in a lot of different elements and throwing them against the wall to see what sticks.
I hope that in future it will come on Android too, because it looks interesting.
