HARRISBURG, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania man is suing the maker of the popular "Assassin's Creed" video game series for copyright infringement and asking a federal court to stop the release of its new installment.

The Carlisle Sentinel reports John Beiswenger of Strasburg filed the lawsuit last week. The suit alleges that the video game series is substantially similar to "Link," a novel he published in 2003. Beiswenger is seeking up to $5.25 million in damages.
