Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed: Project Legacy for Facebook, which will unlock items and landmarks in the firm’s console title Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
Revealed during a press event today in San Francisco, with Project Legacy you create an assassin profile with different disciplines like political intrigue or slinking around in the shadows. Progression will be linear like a lot of Facebook games, and it includes quest rewards so you can unlock more quests. As you level up, you get more complex items like more men for your army or horses.
But while that sounds all fun and everything for the Facebook crowd, what’s really neat is the game interacts with other Assassin’s Creed titles. As you unlock landmarks and items in Legacy, the corresponding items will become available in Brotherhood. Playing the single-player game on your console will in turn also unlock 25 exclusive missions in Legacy.
Legacy launches on Facebook tomorrow, and Brotherhood is out on November 16 in the US and November 19 in the UK for PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version is coming next year.
