Ubisoft is hiring help: Assassin's Creed encyclopedia  photo



 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.

The job requirements are simple: You need to know about the Assassin's Creed universe, be organized, and have sharp English skills. They say they'd love for you to be in the Montreal area, but that's not required, and that they're open to remote work. They're even open to beginners. In other words, many people reading this would fit all the above listed criteria. 

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 volt@ubisoft.com.

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.
