Trailer brought to us in augmented reality courtesy of LOVEFiLM.

LOVEFiLM has joined forces with leading international games publisher Ubisoft®, offering its members a chance to watch the new trailer of the latest and third instalment of the hugely successful gaming franchise, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, through augmented reality (AR) – a media first for both companies.

For the first time LOVEFiLM, Europe’s largest subscription service streaming movies and TV episodes over the Internet and sending DVDs by post, has created a run of 350 thousand Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood themed envelopes that carry an embedded AR code to give gamers an even higher level of interaction with LOVEFiLM’s service – envelopes will be delivered directly to members letterboxes and visitors to the site can download and print-off a digital version.

The innovative envelopes were developed by technology specialists Crossplatform TV- experts in AR, Digital Out Of Home (DOOH), Web TV and Mobile.

Online promotion for the game, which is available on PS3™, XBOX 360 and PC formats, centres around the bespoke Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood microsite ( www.lovefilm.com/brotherhood). It provides fans with a synopsis and visuals of thegame and the chance to vote for the Ultimate Film Assassin.
