An Assassin's Creed mech has been added to RTS game AirMech Arena

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Real-time strategy game AirMech Arena is getting its own assassin mech, courtesy of publisher Ubisoft. The Xbox 360 game now features the Assassin's Creed-inspired Novi Aquilis Neo AirMech, a stealthy transforming mech that offers a glimpse at what a futuristic battle between the assassins and templars might look like.

Joining the Novi Aquilis Neo AirMech, which can cloak itself in battle, is the templar's Abstergo Fortis Prototype saucer mech. The quadruped-saucer is "prized for its death ray and abduction capabilities." Players can also summon Assassin's Creed-themed pets — the Spirit Eagle, the Apple of Eden and the DNA Cube vial — into battle. Check out the new additions in the gallery below.

The release of the Assassin's Creed skins and pets is said to commemorate a new community milestone; more than 1 million Xbox 360 users have played the free-to-play strategy game.

AirMech Arena, the Xbox 360 version of strategy game AirMech that's currently available via Steam Early Access, was released in July.
