If you love Assassin’s Creed and you’re chomping at the bit for the third entry in the series coming this fall, then this might help tide you over: Ubisoft has just released an Assassin’s Creed Comics app for iPad. The app costs a buck, and gets you the first of three issues that have been made exclusively for the iPad. The next two issues will be available from within the app for $2.99 apiece.
Like in any comic app worth its salt, you can read full pages or zoom in for a closer look. You can read in portrait or landscape orientation. You can even toggle between color and black and white if that’s your thing.
Here’s the marketing description we received, followed by some screenies.
Written and illustrated by renowned comic book authors Cameron Stewart and Karl Kerschl, Assassin’s Creed The Fall follows 19th-century Russian Assassin Nikolai Orelov as he strives to claim an artifact of immense power from the hands of the Templars, leading to a climactic and violent showdown with the ruthless Tsar Alexander III aboard a speeding train.
Meanwhile in modern times, a troubled young drifter copes with unsettling visions of a possible past life–visions that have irreversible consequences for the present.
