New McFarlane Toys ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Figures Hitting Stores This Fall
Individual Figures To Unlock Unique Video Game Content
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
In February, McFarlane Toys announced its partnership with Ubisoft to create action figures from the blockbuster Assassin's Creed® series of video games. Each individual highly detailed and articulated 6” figure in Assassin’s Creed series 1 will include a unique code that unlocks exclusive video game content in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag™.
In addition to the individual figures, Assassin’s Creed fans will be able to collect an awesome boxed set that brings together the biggest pirates from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Now let’s take a quick look at some of the cool Assassin’s Creed products headed your way.
INDIVIDUAL FIGURES WITH UNLOCKABLE CONTENT
Last year, Assassin's Creed 3 introduced gamers to Connor, and his father, Haytham Kenway. This year, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag expands the Kenway family tree by going back one generation and telling the story of Haytham's father, Edward. Each of the three characters are a powerful force, each leaving their mark on history, and forever altering the world of Assassin's Creed. Father, son, and grandfather -- connected by blood, but separated by time -- the three generations of Kenways are brought to life in this first series of action figures.
This year, Assassin's Creed 3 expanded with an all-new , a single-player DLC campaign that lets gamers experience an alternate reality version of the events following the American Revolution. In this mythical history, Ratonhnhaké:ton never joins the Assassin Order, never takes the name Connor, but must still fight to protect his tribe and the new, fragile, independent nation. Our Ratonhnhaké:ton action figure brings collectors the Native American hero in the style of a pure Kanien'kehá:ka warrior!
Also, look out for some amazing figures coming out at game launch, including perhaps the most famous pirate of all, Blackbeard. We're sure that you'll recognize the other yet-to-be revealed characters once they've received a proper introduction!
And remember, all of these exciting figures in Assassin’s Creed series 1 include special unlockable Assassin's Creed video game content only available with these figures!
PIRATE 3-PACK BOXED SET
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag moves the action and adventure of the Assassin's Creed video game series to an all-new time, during the Golden Age of Pirates! Our Assassin's Creed Pirate 3-Pack unites three iconic pirate action figures together in one convenient box!
One of the legendary pirates included is Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard. This cunning character was a master of presenting a fearsome appearance to shake the resolve of his enemies. At the height of his infamy, Blackbeard was so well-known, so feared, that many of his targets would surrender at the mere sight of him! Stay tuned, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag developer Ubisoft will reveal more information about these other two notorious characters in the months leading up to the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag!
Pick up all of these action-packed Assassin’s Creed offerings when they hit stores this fall!
