Rock the Vote has enlisted an unusual ally in its mission to register young voters in the United States: Ratonhnhaké:ton. Ubisoft is teaming up with Rock The Vote for joint promotions of voter registration and Assassin's Creed 3.
Ubisoft is organizing a traveling exhibit called "Art of the Assassin" that will feature original art work inspired by AC3. The tour will kick off on Thursday at 525 DTLA Gallery in Los Angeles with works from Ariel Erestingcol, Artek, Dual Forces, Justin Bartlett and more. When the tour ends in October, these works will be auctioned off to the public. The proceeds will be donated to Rock the Vote.
Furthermore, Assassin's Creed 3 will make an appearance at Rock the Vote's Road Trip, a traveling musical tour and voter registration drive. Attendees of Road Trip events will be able to try out AC3 for themselves.
Assassin's Creed 3 is set in colonial America during the time of the Revolution. I suppose that gives it some tenuous link to democracy and voting and all that. Even if the Rock the Vote/AC3 partnership seems like a nonsequitir, it could be very effective. Assassin's Creed seems like a good bait to lure young people to registration drives, and a typically registration drive is full of young people that Ubisoft wants to show the game anyway.
A few sample images from "Art of the Assassin" are below. You can see more at artoftheassassin.com.
