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.

Sweet! :D hopefully the price is reasonable
Too bad I don't have an iPad and most likely never will. But good for those that do.
Sounds cool!!!! Wish I had an iPad lol
1 more reason not to have an andriod device
Well, ok. I'll check it out, but I just don't really see the point. Money, I guess.
I'm going to buy this the minute it comes out(realizes the he has become a die-hard fan boy whoops for joy).
Wish I had an iPad...
Ill consider it
It almost seems like... if you buy Assassin's Creed Embers, you get a cool free game along with it, rather than the other way around. It's like, if you spend $20 on a dvd you usually get some kind of bonus. You spend $20 on AC: Embers, "Oh nice! A free 8-10hr game!" That's how I see it on the iPad anyway...
I'm going to have to get this. On a side note, I've got my copy of Uncharted 3 in the mail yesterday and I just finally turned off the PS3 after playing it for hours. It's a definite GOTY contender. The best part is definitely the story. They did a good job of adding a lot of clever humor on top of a suspense filled adventure. That's not to mention it's one of the best looking games I have ever played on a console.
Hmm sounds interesting.
I can't get the contest page to open states not found???????????
I love the game, but do we need all this everywhere. Is this gonna be key to the whole story of the Assassin's? Since I just got an iPad I'll get this for the curiosity factor.
Not too interested in this but will A.C. Embers be available for purchase or is that a promotional thing?
No Android port = no purchase. And I -really- want to throw money at Ubisoft for this. Tablets need more non-casual games.
