Much hype has surrounded Ubisoft’s upcoming game Assassin’s Creed 3 as the marketing department is coming up with new techniques to capture the attention of potential customers.
Crucial information has been leaking for some time now and third party companies have been selling merchandise from the upcoming game.
It was initially restricted to daggers and equipment from the game but recently, a life sized mannequin of the protagonist, Connor Kenway, has gone up for sale. Apparently anyone can own it because one simple has to answer a questionnaire on Amazon. If you answer all the questions correctly, you can have possession of the life sized statue.
The statue of Connor Kenway, known as Ratonhnhaké:ton in the game, stands at 6 feet 6 inches tall.
It comes attached to a solid base and is dressed in its traditional white and blue robe. The statue wears the usual bow and arrow along with leather straps. The statue wears grey leather shoes and gloves and stands tall on a base which is covered with white material depicting snow.
The protagonist’s weapon, a steel blade called the Tomahawk, can also be purchased for $40 on a couple of online stores.
Ubisoft is set to release Assassin’s Creed 3 on 30th October 2012. This third installment of the successful game is set to introduce new weapons and better graphics.
In a podcast lasting 45 minutes, the developers have revealed that the protagonist may have a love interest this time around, adding some twist to the game. It is based in the American Revolution where the player s an assassin set out to kill enemies and aid the birth of a new nation.
The statue was met with mixed responses from the lovers of the game. Some are completely impressed by the make since it has been made to look as real as possible.
Others feel that there is no place in the house for a statue that big in size. However, the single piece has been designed for die-hard fans only. It also adds to the hype and enthusiasm surrounding the game. Once it is released, Assassin’s Creed 3 is expected to yield great results.
