Assassin’s Creed Is Coming To The iPhone And iPad

Assassin’s Creed Is Coming To The iPhone And iPad

Great news for iOS gamers: the Assassin’s Creed series is coming to iPhones and iPads. But expect a radical formula change when Assassin’s Creed: Recollection hits the App Store. Instead of freely exploring an ancient city in search of targets to assassinate, Assassin’s Creed: Recollection is a board game.

According to Ubisoft, Recollection is a “real-time board game from the Ubisoft Montreal studio that will allow players to live an entirely new experience in the world of Assassin’s Creed.” Players will be allows to compete in political battles “in a real-time board game with key characters and locations from the games”… namely, Enzo and compatriots from Assassin’s Creed 2 and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

Ubisoft says players should expect a 10 hour campaign, which is decidedly beefy for an iOS game. And while the genre of Assassin’s Creed: Recollection seems pretty different from the open world nature of the games for the Xbox 360 and PS3, it is at least being made by the same studio, so don’t expect a farmed-out cash-in: this looks like it’ll be a AAA title.

    another flop like the 2.5 D jump’n'run Assassin’s Creed 2. The first Assassin’s Creed game was the only one that was good

    Assassin’s Creed is already on iPhone and iPad. It’s just a terrible, terrible attempt at a game. This one looks to be much more compelling.

    You have a very unique opinion here. The prevailing opinion (and one that I share) is that Assassin’s Creed 1 was a deeply flawed game with a lot of potential that wasn’t fully realized until Assassin’s Creed 2. AC2 and ACBrotherhood are two outstanding games. I tell most people to play AC1 until they get sick of the repetitive missions, read a story summary for part 1, and start playing AC2.

    I’m talking about the iOS ‘Versions’ … but yeah, I recently bought AC1 for PC for a cheap price, and it’s not really that good…hoped that it would be better

    A board Game? Hmmm
    Triple A board games are still board games and I won’t be picking this up, however, if you want AC on your iOS device, you can get altair’s chronicles(characters and stuff from real games, fully 3d, but very linear and the graphics aren’t all that good, 10-15 hrs if you really take your time) or backstab, which is a bad clone, but still the closest thing, open world, but you’ll spend most of your time in the big cities assassinating civilians
