Ubisoft unveils Assassin's Creed: Arena board game

Ubisoft recently announced a tabletop board game based on its Assassin's Creed series. Titled Assassin's Creed: Arena, the game is intended for up to four players and has a relatively complex set of rules, which explains the age 15+ recommendation by Ubisoft.

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.
