Assassin’s Creed to Get Board Game

Ubisoft and Cryptozoic Entertainment are developing a board game based on the “Assassin’s Creed” video game franchise.

Assassin’s Creed: Arena, which will be available this winter, lets two to four players compete in a test of wits, cunning and card play as they stalk their prey in Constantinople.

"Assassin's Creed is one of the franchises that first comes to mind when you think of popular video games, and Ubisoft has continued to deliver amazing gaming experiences with each release," says Adam Sblendorio, board game brand manager, Cryptozoic Entertainment. "We're thrilled to work with Ubisoft to bring fans of Assassin's Creed a board game that captures the spirit of the franchise while also providing a deep and enriching board gaming experience."

A film based on the property is also in the works, and scheduled to arrive in theaters in summer 2015.
