Leading the charge of what Ubisoft is calling "companion games," Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy
will launch on Facebook
tomorrow, October 1 immediately
(guess it just couldn't wait). The strategy title, described as being similar to Mafia Wars,
will "unlock extra content" in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
, which hits on November 16, in addition to providing a way to gain bonus XP in the console game.
On the flipside, playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
will "unlock up to 25 exclusive missions" in the Facebook game, as well as experience and in-game currency. It's what Ubisoft is calling a "virtuous cycle." Hey -- isn't that what Big Boss went on
in Snake Eater
? Oh. Guess not.
