OnLive has sent some news our way on a new contest that they’re holding for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. It’s going to be served up on OnLive’s service the same day that the PC version hits the shelves, either as a digital download or on retail shelves. If you’re not familiar with what OnLive is, it’s all about the “cloud” – cloud computing.
The way OnLive works is that instead of having to buy a PC built by the gods or a console like the Xbox 360 or the PS3, you can play the game through a browser using OnLive. OnLive does all of the heavy lifting – the graphics, sound, etc. – and beams the game to you, allowing you to play it without worrying about anything more than your skill. You can find out more at their official site here. For contest details, hit the jump below.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Bonus & Sweepstakes – OnLive Blog Posting
I’ve been waiting for this one.
When I think of the Assassin’s
Creed series, I think of extraordinary cinematics, exotic machinery,
rich history and the efficient execution of a plan (or person).
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood,
available at OnLive the same day as its nationwide PC release, has multiplayer
modes cooler and more unpredictable than any AI could ever be. Become both
predator and prey as you track your target while avoiding assassination
yourself. Go it alone or in teams of two.
Brotherhood picks up right where Assassin’s
Creed II (one of the most popular games on the OnLive service) left
off. Become a legendary Master Assassin, build your brotherhood of promising
young recruits and infiltrate the enemy in Rome. Experience the new strike-first,
strike-fast battle system and get ready for your jaw to drop when your
brotherhood answers your call for help.
We know this will instantly be one
of the hottest games on the service when it releases on March 22. So why not
get the excitement going early? …
