Assassin's Creed - First True Next-Gen Game
Assassin's Creed is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and is rumored to be released this November 2007.
The game takes place during the Third Crusade, in the year 1191. The player assumes the role of Altaïr a member of the Hashshashin sect (the original "assassins"), whose objective is to slay the nine historical figures who are propagating the Crusades. As the player finds and kills these targets, their conspiracy is unveiled. The player will be able to travel through three cities: Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus.
The environment is completely interactive, from the people to the historically accurate cities. These cities are populated by many people, and the way the player controls Altaïr affects how the bystanders around him react to his presence. For example, when going through a crowd, if the player lightly moves someone out of the way, it will not have a significant effect. However, if the player throws someone to the ground and kills them, the crowd may unite against him and he will then have to find a way out. Similarly, if the player shoves a person aside, they may shove him back. If he climbs walls, civilians will gather around, attracting unwanted attention from guards.
Assassin's Creed also was the most popular cross-platform title from IGN's GameMetrics on the recently concluded E3 2007.
