Pre-Production Footage Of Assassin’s Creed May Surprise You

May 5, 2012

Something that you may not know is that Ubisoft’s 2007 release, Assassin’s Creed, started life as a new Prince Of Persia game. Thanks to one of Ubisoft’s ex-sound designers though, we’ve been given a glimpse at the game’s humble origins, well before it became the million seller that it is today. In the video below (skip to the 1:31 mark) you’ll get to see what the game originally looked like. Originally called Prince Of Persia: Assassins the gameplay is surprisingly similar to that of the final product, but with a few minor differences, such as the close up view of an enemy as the player assassinates them.

The video also contains a few clips of other games that were in development at Ubisoft between 2002-2009, some of which never saw a release.
