It was awfully quiet around the latest mobile game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The last we heard of Assassin’s Creed Identity was when a big game update was launched on January 28th, 2015. For a year, there had been no word on the mobile game developed by Blue Byte. Instead, the title disappeared from the app stores for a few days, forcing us to assume that the development had come to a stop. Luckily, Ubisoft has now revealed that our inclination had been wrong. The studio announced that Assassin’s Creed Identity would finally launch on February 25th.
Anyone with an iPhone 5 and up or iPad 3 and up with iOS 7 will be able to download the action game later this month. Unfortunately, Assassin’s Creed Identity will not be available for free. Instead, players will have to purchase it for a few dollars (we are assuming it will be around $5). While this might disappoint those who generally don’t want to spend any money on apps, we have learned in the past that Ubisoft launches high quality games when they have to be purchased (e.g. Rayman Fiesta Run).
Assassin’s Creed Identity takes place during one of the most iconic time periods of the franchise, namely the Italian Renaissance. Players will have to solve The Mystery of the Crows by playing through various quests and story driven missions. In comparison to other mobile games of the franchise (Assassin’s Creed Memories and Assassin’s Creed Pirates), the latest adaptation will bring the iconic gameplay of the series to mobile devices.
As of now, the app will only launch on iTunes. We will keep you posted if and when an Android release is planned.
