A real-time board game, Assassin’s Creed Recollection, incorporates the core components of the hit franchise, but creates a new experience for fans to enjoy. Ubisoft originally released Recollection for the iPad at a price of $2.99, though some sales have come around occasionally. Starting today, the game is a universal app, free to download, plus includes some new content and a sync system.

Assassin’s Creed Recollection continues the war between the Templars and the Assassins. Containing some of the well-known characters, places, and the concept of uncovering the story from random memories, your objective in the game is to compete in a political battle to capture regions all over the city by sending your agents out to campaign for you. The game features 20 story mode missions, 10 challenge missions, 280 different memories, multiplayer mode, and Game Center integration.

Along with now being able to jump into the adventure at no cost, at least initially, Assassin’s Creed Recollection v1.7.8 also adds a sequence library online syncing system to make it possible to restore game progress and Assassin’s Creed III artwork.

Assassin’s Creed Recollection is a universal app compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4, iPad 1, and iPad 2 running iOS 4.2 or later, and available in the App Store as a free download.
