Unlock the Animus Week 2 hints and tips

Brain being tortured? We may be able to help you out, plus new screens!

It's week two of our splendid Unlock The Animus challenge and with over 86,000 of you visiting the site and sailing through the first puzzle with ease, those fiendish Templars have upped the ante with a cunning conundrum in strand two to really tax your brains.

Now, we're not in the business of giving the answers away, but with quite a few entrants struggling to make their way through Week Two, we thought we'd give you a gentle hint, a subtle clue to help you work out the answer.

Remember this week's puzzle theme is Assassins versus Templars. Here's the clue:


"To know your enemy, you must first speak their language."

Hopefully that'll give your brain a nudge in the right direction. We have to admit we were a bit stumped when we first encountered it too, but keep going as there's a fantastic prize on offer in the form of an amazing trip to Istanbul for yourself and a friend, including flights, four nights of hotel accommodation and £500 spending money, plus a chance to tour the beautiful and historic Constantinople of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman periods.

We've also got a bunch of exclusives for Assassin's fans on the site including today's brand new Assassin's Creed: Revelations preview, plus a new AC: Revelations interview with the development team, in which they discuss the ancient battle between the Assassins and Templars.

In the meantime you can enjoy the new selection of multiplayer screens scattered around this page for your viewing pleasure.
