Far Cry 3 Easter egg teases Assassin’s Creed

Far Cry 3 holds secrets to more than one Ubisoft gaming universe, according to photos posted by Reddit user Alinosburns.

Players who discover a certain Letter of the Lost Lab will find want to take note to the following text:

"Masahiro, I question using these so-called scientists. They speak of Pieces of Eden and Edison's electrical experiments into "genetic memory.'"

Pieces of Eden is a direct reference to the powerful artifacts in Assassin's Creed that both the templars and assassins search for. Players are able to explore the past lives of protagonist Desmond's ancestor's through his "genetic memory," where memories are passed down through bloodlines. A second image features the Abstergo logo on the wall.

Far Cry 3 releases on Dec. 4 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
