At the end of the previous financial year, Ubisoft had promised to overturn their losses and dedicate more resources to arguably their most successful franchise – The Assassin’s Creed franchise.
There are as many as 11 Assassin’s Creed titles in development currently. Assassin’s Creed Mirage, set in 9th-century Baghdad, will be released on October 5th.
The latest gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade takes us back to 3rd Century China, the time of the first unified empires. The gameplay video shows trademark Assassin’s Creed parkour and stealth takedowns on mobile and iOS devices.
The final title was also revealed, with the game now known as “Assassin’s Creed: Jade.” The game is currently in the closed beta phase. This, hopefully, means that the public release is not too far away.
The game traverses 2000 years back through the history of ancient China, along the path of legendary Assassin Xia. The website mentions that the primary task is protecting the character’s home from Xiongnu Raiders at the Great Wall.
The gameplay promises a journey through ancient China’s vibrant world and culture with unfolding mysteries and conspiracies of the Qin Dynasty of China.
A multiplayer feature is also being advertised on the page. It says we can plan and execute assassinations with our friends to deal with strict targets and combine forces to clear challenging tasks and events.
The central theme of the entire region will be “an unprecedented area of trade and cultural exchange between the East and the West.”
The release date is unknown; fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise have the release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage to look forward to, with its release set on October 5th.
