Ubisoft sent me a heads-up on this job this morning. As you may know, they're working on an Assassin's Creed encyclopedia. That's a huge undertaking and they're needing some help. This is a real gig that many of you could be a good candidate for.
In order to narrow things down they're requesting a writing sample. You can find the full details after the jump.
This sounds like a great gig and a potential foot in the door. You should go for it.
Submissions and CVs have to be sent to [email protected]
Here's what they're looking for:
Document formatting: Times New Roman, size: 10, single spaced. These are encyclopaedia entries and there must be an objective style to the writing. Structure your information appropriately. (No purple prose.)
Choose 2 of the below examples as your writing test.
1 entry: Main character of your choice, across all media (games, books, etc). Ex: Desmond, Ezio, Daniel Cross, etc.
1 entry: Major secondary character of your choice. Ex: Lucy, Malik, Robert de Sable, Maria Thorpe, etc.
1 entry: The Animus, technical details and information, bleed effect, etc. Ex: The Abstergo machine, the Assassins' machine, etc.
1 entry: An overview major historical event (can be selected from the entire timeline of the IP, across all media).
Note: You could also do a comparison of the "real" historical event versus the "game version" of the historical event for bonus points.
can cause it. You can fix it by adding *.disqus.com to your whitelists.
