It's certainly the year for the Assassin's Creed franchise. Along with two new adventures making their debut later this year (with details to come next month at E3), Ubisoft has announced an AC-flavored crossover with its free-to-play shooter Ghost Recon: Phantoms.
The new Assassin's Creed pack introduces various hoods, suits and weapons to the game, including specialized Fiveseven AC, MG36 KV AC, P90 C AC and Sentinel SR-1 AC rifles. Then, of course, there are to hoods that let you rock the high-tech Assassin look.
"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 Mario Flor, art director for the game. "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."
The pack is available now and will continue to be downloadable for the next four weeks. More details about the game can be found here.

Ubisoft's Ghost Recon game just got a heaping dose of assassination.
I remember the first Ghost Recon games... I look back on Island Thunder then I look at this... And I cry.
