Free Assassin’s Creed Game on iTunes

on February 18, 2012 4:27 PM

Ubisoft is currently offering its iOS title Assassin’s Creed Recollection for free.  If you were curious about the card-based game but had been saving that dollar to do laundry this weekend, now is the perfect time to strike.

AC Recollection plays sort of like a cross between Risk and Magic: The Gathering. Players utilize a deck of cards called memories, to keep in the style of the series. Each card depicts a character, an action, or a location, all of which are placed in an in-game staging area. The aim is to gain influence and ultimately take over two of the three primary regions on the staging area. Check after the break for a quick trailer to see the gameplay for yourself.

Veteran AC players will appreciate the artwork on each card, all of which showcase the series’ distinct visual style. In addition to the cards received along with the game, players can earn or buy new cards from the app store — which offsets the fact that the game is currently free, but then again you’re under no obligation to buy new cards.

Ubisoft says the offer of a free game will last for a limited time only, but elects not to specify said time limit — making now the perfect time to whip out your iPhone and get on that.

When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
