Assassin's Creed Ships

One of the most anticipated games for the holiday season now available
Assassin's Creed is now available in retail stores across North America, for PS3 and Xbox 360, Ubisoft announced. The game is set in 1191 AD, when the Third Crusade was tearing the Holy Land apart. Shrouded in secrecy and feared for their ruthlessness, the Assassins intend to stop the hostilities by suppressing both sides of the conflict. Players, assuming the role of the main character Altair, will have the power to throw their immediate environment into chaos and to shape events during this pivotal moment in history. The PC version is scheduled for early 2008.
