Trivia

In another attempt to promote this game, Ubisoft filled safes with promotional material and send them to major Australian online publications. When a journalist of Ninemsn received the safe and attempted to open it, he heard it beeping. Alarmed, the journalist contacted other companies, and upon learning that they received a safe as well, he called the police. Soon afterwards, officers and a bomb disposal team arrived, and the floor where the package was delivered to was evacuated. When the safe was opened in the basement, all they found was a copy of the game. Because of the backfired publicity stunt, Ubisoft apologized to the staff of Ninemsn for the trouble they've unintentionally caused. See more »
