Unlock the Animus - week four now live!

Assassin's Creed fans it's time to get your thinking hoods on again

It's that time of the week again, when we unleash another of our mentally stimulating Unlock the Animus puzzles and with just one more challenge to go after this one, competition is heating up to prove who is the ultimate assassin.

Last week we tested your powers of artefact analysis, cipher enumeration and your pattern recognition skills in one of the most hardcore challenges yet (and if you're still struggling help is at hand here).


But week four promises even greater torment, requiring you to use a strategic and mathematical use of force in a physics based challenge with a variety of materials used to create exploding devices. Be cautious Assassin, your resources are limited, so use them wisely. There's no use delaying the inevitable so get over there and get cracking right now!

Yet you should persevere oh heir of Ezio, for if you succeed in solving all these puzzles and then the final Unlock the Animus challenge itself, you could be in line to win a fantastic trip to Istanbul for yourself and a friend, including flights, four nights of hotel accommodation and £500 spending money and a chance to tour the beautiful and historic Constantinople of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods.

As a special treat for Assassin's fans, we've also got a bunch of exclusive interviews with the Ubisoft Montreal development team and today's latest interview with Alexandre Breault Game Design Director and Alexandre Amancio, Creative Director explores some of the splendid new gameplay features you'll experience in Revelations, including the hookblade, ziplines and bomb making facilities. There may even be the odd clue located in there.

But if you can't wait to see this week's challenge head straight on over to Unlock the Animus right now for full details, competition rules and to attempt the fourth strand.
