First Look: Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines for PSP

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

Recently, Ubisoft invited us over to their San Francisco warren to check out Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines. I wasn’t really sure how they were planning on jamming Assassin’s Creed’s exploration, climbing, and free-running into a PSP, but I’ve got to say, they’ve done an excellent job (don’t take my word for it, IGN agrees).

In a theme we’ll be seeing a lot of this year, developer Griptonite Games didn’t produce a watered-down side-scroller and slap the Assassin’s Creed name on it – this is a true follow-up to the original, only portable.

The story picks right up where the first one let off, putting you back in the familiar boots and blades of Altair. How do the controls translate to the PSP? What tweaks have been made to the formula? Has Altair stolen any cool new moves from Ezio (the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed II)? Producer Frederic Lefrancois and Senior Producer Dan McAuliffe answer these questions – with the added bonus of a bunch of brand new video.

    You\’re right, the wrong version of the video was embedded. Fixing that now.

Is it just me or does it sound like Jeff was cut off in mid-sentence at the end of the video?

@7 DDark
We need more inFamous dammit. Sony, make it happen. DLC or something, but I need more inFamous.

I’m inspired even more to buy the PSP-3000 GT bundle when it comes out to pick up this as well. Looks to be the year of Sony.

poodude said:

September 15th, 12:47 pm

Jeez Sony stop making so many great games. I’m spending so much on PS3 games alone this year and now you’re shoving all these great PSP games in my face.

@ Bendeboy
Please, we’ve had enough of this. This is an ASSASSINS CREED post, not a 3.00 post. Take your stupid complaints over to the Playstation Network forums where they belong.

What is that on your shirt? Is that a Chimera?

3.00 fix came out yesterday smart guy.. 3.01.

I don’t know why my comment didn’t post but I’m definitely going to be buying the PSP-3000 GT bundle when it drops and getting this as well.

@4 Appo
If it was the DS version deserved it.

DS = Watered down portable games device with touchy feely games that don’t add a whole lot to the experience lol.

@Griptonite Games
Great job guys. I’m not a fan of the series, but I know a few people who will be excited about this game and what has been done so far with it. Definitely will help push a few PSPs out the door as well.

    It looks good, a streamlined version of the PS3 edition. But this was an eyes-on preview with Ubi driving. I haven\’t been hands on.

Looking good, not quite as good as the trailer made it out to be which is unfortunate. Still looking really good and I may by another PSP just for this (upgrade time).

Btw, I like the shirt Jeff.
