Assassin's Creed 2 Launch Trailer and UPlay Info
Check out this launch trailer for Assassin's Creed 2. It sets the scene brilliantly and introduces Ezio as well as quite a lot of combat and background to the setting and story. Ubisoft have also announced details of their UPlay and how this will fit in with Assassin's Creed 2. You can find the full press release below. Uplay is an exciting addition to the gaming industry and I'm looking forward to bringing you more information on the new service from Ubisoft.
Ubisoft announced today that players of Assassin’s Creed II on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be able to use the in-game interface to connect directly to the Uplay beta.
Uplay is Ubisoft’s online destination where gamers are at the centre of a connected gaming universe that will be developed around four primary services: Uplay Win, Uplay Help, Uplay Share and Uplay Shop. The Uplay Beta is only launching with Uplay Win so far.
Uplay Win enables players to collect units based on their actions in the games and exchange them for rewards such as exclusive in-game content or goodies. Uplay Win’s Units can also be gathered cross platform: PC,360, PS3.
In Assassin’s Creed II, a real Altaïr costume and exclusive in-game content such as access to the Auditore Family Crypt are among the rewards offered through Uplay Win. For those who don’t want to redeem their units right away, they can save them to use on other games such as the upcoming Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction and many more to come.
Players will also be able to access Uplay Share, Uplay Shop and Uplay Help from www.uplay.com.
