Next Assassin's Creed viral website opens for business photo



It appears that Ubisoft has something for missing body parts and viral campaigns. At least, when it comes to some sort of Assassin's Creed follow-up. (Probably Brotherhood.)

This afternoon several Destructoid users received a pretend letter from a Dr. Warren Vidic, the head genetic researcher and lead on Assassin's Creed's time machine venture: the Animus Project. In the letter, Vidic asks the reader if he's interested in a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity and welcomes him to "a new dawn of man." Interestingly, the letter includes a link to a flash-based Assassin's Creed website which details five weapons: a dagger, a syringe, a fan, an axe, and a radical arm prosthesis dubbed the "Claw."

There's a small riddle involving glyphs embedded amongst the weapons, easily solvable by browsing the website. Each weapon, when clicked on, reveals one of the glyphs (and a short, grainy video showing the weapon's use in-game). The very last glyph is located offsite, seemingly, but we brute-forced it and netted the attached wallpaper for our efforts.

At the end of the day, we're not sure what the hell this website is for. Presumably, it's for Brotherhood's multiplayer component -- all those Animus machines gives us that vibe, but we could be wrong. We totally thought that chili dog last night wouldn't give us a single problem, and well, our toilet is now begging for relief.

Note: the site also has a countdown timer, which we'll suppose will continue to count downwards until it hits zero. A transcript of the letter is available below the fold. Thanks, tipsters!

Dear [Whomever],

Hello and welcome to the new era of Abstergo Industries. I am Dr. Warren Vidic, the head genetic researcher and lead on the Animus Project.

A great battle looms to finish the past and begin the future. JOIN US…and see a new era rise.

Dr. Warren Vidic
