Join Ubisoft as they give rise to a new era, with a countdown website showing off fans, claws and other implements of destruction that will likely appear in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, masquerading as a website for Templar front Abstergo Enterprises.
An Ubisoft Twitter heralding the rise of a new era lead us to the Abstergo Industries website, where various assassin weapons float serenely on a blue, clouded backdrop. Claw, dagger, syringe, fan, axe and one weapon hidden by code appear on the site, along with a countdown clock with just under 16 hours to go. Clicking on the weapons leads to a description, along with a bit of voiceover from Assassin's Creed I and II villain Doctor Warren Vidic, recently seen teasing players via Facebook.
The page is obviously a teaser for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, the next game in the series, outed last week via GameStop preorder art. Ubisoft told us we'd be hearing more this week, and here we are.
Incidentally, if you're interested in the code to unlock the final weapon, Kotakuite Alexander has you covered. Ignore this if you'd rather figure this out yourself!
1. Circle with star in it 2. Omega symbol 3. Incan temple 4. Three circles (like biohazard) 5. Three triangles (like islands) 6. Templar Symbol (pyramid with eye)
Check out the page for yourself, and join us in the morning for the frantic refreshing of the countdown clock!
