Ubisoft Auction Assassins Creed IV Painting for Charity
Just like any farer of the turbulent oceans of the internet, I too have a tendency to be a sizable cynic. However, this Ubisoft promotion (yes, I realise it is still promotion) has warmed the cockles of my heart. Across the 3 days of EB Expo, Ubisoft Australia commissioned artist Gary Donnellan to create a massive painting based on the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Now that the painting is done and dusted it's being hocked off for charity on eBay with all proceeds going to the Starlight Children's Foundation.
