Update: Even more footage has begun to surface as users have seemingly been able to gain access to Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade mobile alpha on iOS, through access codes that were being shared online before Ubisoft cut off entry completely.
There’s over 20 minutes of new footage now making the rounds on YouTube, though Ubisoft seemingly hasn’t done much to plug the leaks as yet. You can see one of the new videos below:
When Ubisoft revealed Assassin’s Creed Jade (a working codename) back in September, we assumed the fully-featured open-world mobile series entry would be a fair ways off.
It’s definitely not right around the corner, but if a new leak is any indication it’s taking shape a lot more than we might’ve thought. Video footage taken from an Apple device has suddenly appeared online, first reportedly via a Facebook post and then since on Reddit.
The footage shows nearly three minutes of raw gameplay depicting the player defending a village from raiders. The combat-heavy sequence looks to be taken from a currently-running iOS beta of the game and gives us a glimpse at work-in-progress combat and parkour via touchscreen controls.
While we won’t publish the footage here, you can see it for yourself on Reddit.
Assassin’s Creed Jade will be set in Ancient China (215 BCE) and feature all of the iconic Assassin’s Creed gameplay mechanics including combat, assassinations and eagle vision. You’ll also be able to parkour across iconic Chinese locations such as the Great Wall of China. For the first time in an Assassin’s Creed game, you’ll also get to create your own character.
