Assassin's Creed has gone Gold!
November 13th is a day you’ll likely want to mark on your calendar. Why, you ask?
Simple, it’s the day that parkour-loving stealthy gamers get the chance to take control of Altair – the building-hopping spy-type protagonist from UbiSoft’s latest creation: Assassin’s Creed. The title has just gone gold, and will be on it’s way to retail in the coming weeks.
The title will retail for $60 for the regular game and $70 for the Limited Edition which contains the following:
- Collectible 3-inch Altair figure
- Penny Arcade comic
- Mini strategy guide
- Bonus disc including: Winners of Assassinâ€™s Creed short film contest, Behind-the-scenes videos, Developer diaries, Trailers, Producer interviews, Downloads and more
Assassinâ€™s Creed producer Jade Raymond was quoted as saying:
We’ve been working very hard for nearly four years to make Assassin’s Creed a reality and now there is a confirmed date when players will get to experience the results of our efforts. This is a huge event for the team. Our biggest reward will be everyone having a lot of good solid fun.â€
Luckily for Jade and her team, the hype surrounding this game is at a white-hot level, so I’m fully expecting this title to pull some serious numbers. Most gamers are looking at Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty 4 as the ones to own, so it should do well.
Does anyone out there not have Assassin’s Creed on their must-own list for this holiday season? Just in case there are some stragglers who don’t, UbiSoft would be well-suited to get cracking on a demo. *hint hint*
