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.
