Ubisoft has launched its Assassin's Creed/Ghost Recon Phantoms crossover. Well, Ubisoft calls it a crossover. We'd be more tempted to call it a warm nod. It consists of new kit in which to deck out all three Phantoms character classes in Assassin's Creed kit.
The kit in question is:
• Three new iconic Assassin’s Creed Hoods and Tactical Suits
• Five new top-of-the-line, Tier VII Assassin’s Creed themed weapons (Ak-12 SV AC, PKM SV AC, M3A1 C AC, M960 C AC, M14 Tactical AC)
• Five classic Assassin’s Creed pack weapons (F2000 SP AC, Fiveseven AC, MG36 KV AC, P90 C AC, Sentinel SR-1 AC)
“The community response was very positive when we released our first Assassin’s Creed crossover during open beta for the Recon class. So we decided to produce a brand new and much more in-depth Assassin’s Creed pack including gear and weapons for all three classes,” said Felix Marlo Flor, Ghost Recon Phantoms art director.
“Bringing Assassin’s Creed into the futuristic setting of Ghost Recon Phantoms while staying true to both worlds was an exciting challenge. We looked at the similarities between the Ghosts and Assassins, both are stealthy, elite warriors, who fight for justice, and fused those similarities to create a crossover that fits naturally into Ghost Recon Phantoms.”
