Ubisoft Wants to Immortalize Gamers in Assassin’s Creed 4 Painting
Ubisoft has plans to immortalize 137 European fans of the Assassin’s Creed series in a painting of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag (read our preview here!), which will be painted by the famed Beaux-Arts school in Paris.
The painting, as you can imagine, will be done in the style of an 18th century oil painting depicting a classical naval battle.
Measuring at 2.3 x 4.5 meters in size, the work of art will be given an online display and hung up at the Musée national de la Marine gallery in Paris, for a month starting from November 4. You can see the work in progress at this website.
To participate, fans can choose one of the 137 characters on the painting, chose to take a photo by webcam or upload a photo. Several entries per character are possible, and the community will be tasked to chose between the contestants, by hitting the “like” button on individual pictures. The ones ranked highest with the most “likes” will end up in the actual painting.
Members of The Watch, the official Assassin’s Creed community, will have an early chance to get their likenesses into the painting.
