Players use cards to hide, move or attack guards and other players as one of four templars in Assassin's Creed: Arena, guiding their player token across rooftops on a grid-like board. The game ends when one player achieves 15 victory points from assassinations or when there are no more event cards to play. A few, but not all of the game's rules can be viewed on Ubisoft's announcement blog.
Assassin's Creed: Arena is the latest creation from Cryptozoic Entertainment, the tabletop game developers behind projects like Batman: Arkham City Escape and games based on the Hawken, The Walking Dead and Street Fighter properties. It will launch February 26 for $50.
