If Assassin's Creed Unity and Assassin's Creed Rogue aren't enough Assassin's Creed for you this year, there's one more way to play Ubisoft's annual franchise, only now with the added peril of income taxes: Assassin's Creed Monopoly.
An officially licensed version of the property trading board game is coming this October, with almost every aspect of Monopoly tricked out with Assassin's Creed branding. There will be six assassins to choose from — Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Ratonhnhaké:ton, Aveline de Grandpré, Edward Kenway and Arno Dorian — and historical locations from the Assassin's Creed series. Instead of dollars, players will trade Abstergo credits — collecting 200 credits as they pass "Go" — and the game's prime real estate is Abstergo Industries and Abstergo Entertainment.
Rich "Uncle" Pennybags, aka Mr. Monopoly, even wears an assassin's hood on the game's box art and board.
Licensed Monopoly maker USAopoly tells Polygon that the Assassin's Creed Monopoly board game is exclusive to Europe, where distributors are currently taking pre-orders.
USAopoly has Monopoly games based on The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon coming later this year.
