Far Cry 3: Assassin’s Creed Easter Eggs

Those nefarious Templars seems to be everywhere in the Assassin’s Creed series, and now they’ve invaded Far Cry 3 with a couple of interesting easter eggs. It seems the villains from the Ubisoft stealth series were involved with the Japanese, as you can see the Templar’s distinctive logo on the file folders of an old Japanese lab from WW2. It gets better, as reading notes will reveal more of the Japanese’s involvement with the Templars. Check out the details below, with a full transcription of the hidden letter.

  • Assassin’s Creed Easter Eggs

    • To find these Easter Eggs, you’ll need to enter the mission “Ignition in the Deep”, an extra exclusive to the Far Cry 3 Insane Edition.

    Easter Egg #1

    • In the mission mentioned above, you can find background information indicating that the Japanese scientists in the lab were actually Templars — a group that famously feature as the main villains of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
    • On the lab folders, you can spy an Abstergo symbol. Abstergo, in the Assassin’s Creed universe, is a modern version of the Templars.

    Easter Egg #2

    • On one of the Letters of the Lost, you can find notes from a Japanese Researcher in WW2 talking about some very strange technology.

    “Masahiro, I question using these so-called scientists. They speak of Pieces of Eden and Edison’s electrical experiments into ‘genetic memory’. I do not trust them, and I have locked lab access. To access or exit the secured room use this code 122112. Please exercise caution around these foreign devils. -Hayato”

    • Pieces of Eden were an ancient relic sought by the Templars in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
    • The genetic memory experiments are a reference to the main gimmick of the series; that our present day hero is able to access genetic memory to relive experiences from the past in a simulated environment.

    You forgot one easter egg of the final message: the code “122112″ is a reference to December 12th, 2012. In Assassin’s Creed 3 you’re trying to prevent the end of the world in that date. :)

    In the mission when you kill Hoyt, he cuts Jason’s left ring finger. It’s the same finger which Altaiir has cutten.

    There’s one more, this time in Assassin’s Creed. When first entering the temple, Shawn quotes: “”In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.” The same quote is shown to the player at the beginning of Farcry3. Gotta love Ubisoft, awesome games!

    On the mission when Jason is going to collect mushrooms you approach a ledge and you hear Jason say “Leap of Faith.” Anyone who’s played Assassin’s Creed knows that a Leap of Faith is when an Assassin makes a leap from a ledge/viewpoint into a pile of hay, grass, a bush or the water and emerges from it in unharmed.
