Reasons For Playing Assassin's Creed On Facebook

I haven't tried the Assassin's Creed Facebook game. As into Assassin's Creed as I am, I still thought I could skip it.

But this video from Ubisoft, explaining how the Facebook game, Project Legacy, connect to Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, makes it tempting.

The video's narrator describes how the connected games unlock content in one another and improve the progress you can make in certain parts of each. For example, it allows players to continue renovating Rome across both games (having only played Brotherhood, I'm still unclear what the point of buying landmarks is - they don't make you much money!). The Facebook game also lets you get more involved with missions you send your trained assassins on, but that latter feature confuses me since, when I send assassins into missions they tend to be on them for only about 20 minutes of real time.

We've seen Microsoft try to hook Facebook games to console games, specifically with Crackdown 2. I assume more of this is coming.

I've gotta try this Assassin's Creed one out and see how it connects. Anyone out there liking or disliking Project Legacy?

    Once you get passed the first 2 chapters in Legacy, the story really picks up and becomes very interesting (Won't spoil it but it involves the Borgia family). I have heard from those playing Brotherhood already that those people who play Legacy are going to get little nods to the game and vice versa - with one particular mission picking up where legacy left off.

    Can't wait!

    I hope the linkage is not North America only. :(

    I really like Project Legacy. It's very simple, a lot like Mafia Wars, but much much prettier, and much more interesting to play. It's just a great read really, with a bit of colourful things to click on.

    I wish I had played Project Legacy when it was first announced. I played Mafia Wars in MySpace for awhile, but maxed out, and decided it was such a waste of time I'll never play another Facebook game again.

    Well I get Brotherhood and learn you unlock some stuff after reaching Level 30 in Project Legacy. I MUST/HAVE TO unlock EVERYTHING and hit 100% in Brotherhood, so NOW I'm playing Project Legacy, and I was surprised.

    The STORY! They've created a whole alternate universe from the perspective of the Assassin's Order, I'm compelled to play just to learn what happen's next! Instead of just spam clicking and gaining points as fast as possible, I'm READING every single action and actually am enjoying myself a little bit. (As much as one can a Facebook game when Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is on in the next room waiting for me to run out of points!

    My advice, if you're a fan of the Assassin's Creed series, PLAY Project Legacy. If you're playing Brotherhood, DEFINITELY PLAY Project Legacy, at least up until level 30. Link your Project Legacy game with your UBISOFT account and Facebook, then go to your Brotherhood game, select your Save File from Story mode, and hit the button it displays to LINK Brotherhood with Project Legacy. I feel foolish for not have played this months ago!
