Assassin's Creed: Ubisoft breaks the silence

Script writer sheds story revelations to our mates at Xbox World 360 magazine - read it online now!

After a cold and quiet few months everyone's favourite French publisher Ubisoft has decided to break the silence on its Prince of Persia-meets-Hitman adventure Assassins' Creed.

The chatter comes in the latest issue of Xbox World 360 magazine which you can find on the shelves today.

"I think it's safe to say that the Crusades are an area we've wanted to explore for a long time, but we've been waiting for technology to reach a point where we can do it justice," script writer Cory May says.

"We contacted a historian early in the conception phase of development to help us build a foundation of research. We have used the web, documentaries, old medieval encyclopaedias, paintings and novels. The historian helped us with some harder to find information such as original city plans of Jerusalem, Damascus and Acre that date back to the 3rd crusade."

Our kind and gentle colleagues on the mag have decided to stick the entire interview with script writer Cory May online, and you can find it here, here and oh - here as well.
