Ubisoft sure does know how to drive the hype train. What do I mean? I’m talking about Assassin’s Creed: Initiates, a new website opened September 1 2012. AC: Initiates comes with just under 2 months to go until the release of the highly-anticipated Assassin’s Creed 3.
AC: Initiates premiered on September 1. In the AC universe, September 1 2012 is the date when Desmond Miles is kidnapped (and for the sake of those not familiar with Assassin’s Creed, I won’t write any spoilers). On the same day, AC: Initiates posted a picture of a security video of the location where Desmond Miles is kidnapped (don’t worry, I won’t say why xD ). On September 2 in real time, another event was posted, this time with another picture of Desmond Miles being forced onto a plane. What does this mean? It means that AC: Initiates is posting information concerning the events surrounding Desmond Miles in real-time, so that the events in the game coincide with the current date.
Most of what has been posted is information we already know, but there has been some posts that have stimulated much discussion on the AC: Initiates forums.
What new surprises do you think Ubisoft has in store for us? And, will there be hidden clues for fans to uncover that concern the plot of Assassin’s Creed 3? Maybe some Desmond gameplay shortly before AC3’s release? We’ll just have to wait and see, I suppose.
