Penguin Books to adapt Assassin's Creed II game

6th November 2009

Penguin Books and Ubisoft have announced a 'unique collaboration' that brings together publishing and computer gaming.

The companies have joined forces to base a new book on the forthcoming Ubisoft Entertainment game Assassin's Creed II.

Penguin will release Assassin’s Creed Renaissance, a novelisation of the video game, on November 26th.

Alex Clarke, editorial director at the publisher, said that the collaboration represents a new way for publishing to cross over with the 'exciting' video gaming world.

'Ubisoft has crafted a brilliant storyline with superbly realised characters which translates seamlessly into a wonderfully fast-paced and enthralling historical thriller. For Penguin this dovetails perfectly with the appetite of historical fiction fans,' he explained.

Rob Cooper, managing director of Ubisoft, added that the novel will create new ways for fans of the Assassin's Creed's franchise, which has sold more than nine million copies worldwide, to interact with the game.

Earlier this year, Ubisoft revealed that it will develop a video game based on the adventures of Asterix The Gaul, allowing players to battle the invincible warrior's Roman enemies.
