Pre E3 2006: Ubisoft announces Assassin's Creed

PS3 News | Exclusive new franchise for Sony’s next-gen console. First trailer inside.
Ubisoft Montreal has today announced their latest project, Assassin’s Creed, that’ll make an exclusive appearance on Sony’s PlayStation 3 console next year.

Set in the year 1191, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart, Assassin’s Creed will follow the story of a cunning assassin named Altair who’s intentions are to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the Holy War.

After the company’s success with the Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell franchisers, Ubisoft Montreal are hoping to transform Assassin’s Creed into a franchise that’ll establish itself as one of the ‘must-have’ next-generation games for the new era, which you can judge for yourself by checking out the trailer below.

Oooh, looks like they combined PoP and Splinter Cell and set it in the crusades. The plot sounds like it could be pretty original.

Wow, this is sounding pretty good. As for looking good, well... I've recently grown a bit wary of Sony's trailers. I'm sure it will look good, but I'm not going to gauge that using this trailer. Gameplay or bust. Pre-rendered stuff is just insulting at this stage.

Has Ubisoft tricked people with footage before though? I can't remember.

As for this announcement, well hello! It's an Assassin game. 'Nuff said.
