Once upon a time (in September of 2014), a really awesome mobile Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed Identity was soft-launched in select countries. This new game in the long-running series was the first on mobile to feature the core mechanics of its bigger console and PC releases, and aside from a wonky free to play business model it was a totally kick ass mobile Assassin’s Creed game. It was tweaked and updated in the months following its soft-launch, but it never officially released, and last month it disappeared from the App Store altogether. Thankfully it resurfaced earlier this week with a brand new trailer, a new paid business model, and an official launch date of February 25th. Now Ubisoft has released a couple of new developer Q&A videos for Assassin’s Creed Identity that cover many details about the game and show it in action in anticipation of its release in a few weeks.
As someone who didn’t get around to downloading the soft-launch version of Assassin’s Creed Identity, and then horribly regretted it when that version was pulled last month, February 25th just can’t come soon enough. This game looks really awesome, and I can’t wait to build out my own little assassin. I’m going to name him Meatball. If you’re looking for some discussion about this upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, look no further than the game’s thread in our forums, and be on the lookout for more on Identity leading up to its February 25th release.
