With Assassin’s Creed: Revelations just weeks from release, developers Ubisoft have set up a new website called ‘Unlock The Animus’. The site will host a series of minigames you can play leading up to the release of the latest title in the franchise.
The first puzzle appears to be a video montage of scenes from previous Assassin’s Creed games, after viewing you are required to arrange various keywords relating to the video you have seen. The first puzzle was a good challenge to get players going, and I have high expectations for further puzzles to come as we draw nearer and nearer to the release of Revelations.
There are a total of five puzzles expected to be released on the site, so potentially one per week between now and release day of the game.
There are numerous rumours flying around as to what this may unlock, and indeed of there are any true rewards for completing all the tasks. Ubisoft have teamed up with other online games sites to offer real prizes separate from the actual bonuses linked into the site, so it is worth checking out.
Maybe they’ll send you your very own “Make Your Own Hookblade Kit” if you complete it? Answers on a postcard, please!
Check out the latest trailer from Ubisoft, which shows off Ezio and his new bombing talents. Explosive weapons can be crafted by Ezio in about 300 different combinations, all of which have different ingredients and desired effects on the target. Some are used for wide spread damage on enemies, and some, such as the Cherry Bomb, are all Ezio needs to provide a quick distraction to allow him to escape from his pursuers. No more hiding in haystacks then?
