Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, the ambitious new virtual reality Assassin’s Creed experience that puts players in the literal shoes of some of the franchise’s most iconic heroes, is set to launch on November 16th for Meta Quest 2, 3 and Pro.
The game will put players in the virtual bodies of three iconic Assassin’s Creed heroes with Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Connor Kenway and Kassandra, taking them into as-yet-untold moments in each characters’ respective story. Taking place across the Italian Renaissance, the American Revolution and Ancient Greece, it’ll give fans the opportunity to see familiar places and faces from an entirely new point-of-view.
It’s also set to be a proper Assassin’s Creed gameplay experience with free-flowing, 360-degree parkour and intuitive combat that blends real-world actions with recognisable Assassin’s Creed mechanics and abilities, like swordplay, bows, smoke bombs, and of course – the Hidden Blade. There’ll be plenty of stealth as well hiding, sneaking, blending into crowds and even air assassinations.
BECOME THREE ICONIC MASTER ASSASSINS
For the first time in franchise history, step into the world of Assassin’s Creed and play in first-person. Embody legendary Assassins Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Kassandra, and Connor as you discover untold chapters of each Assassin’s story. Encounter familiar faces such as Leonardo Da Vinci in the Italian Renaissance, in a story full of harrowing conflict, stolen treasure and revenge. In Ancient Greece, play a central role in an intense struggle. During the American Revolution, get caught up in a world of espionage, intrigue and betrayal.
EXPLORE AND PARKOUR FREELY
Explore iconic historical cities including Venice, Athens, Colonial Boston and more. Embark on quests with the autonomy to decide the best way to achieve your objectives. The campaign features open map environments with 360-degree navigation, allowing you to climb and parkour anywhere. Meet and interact with civilians and historical figures, all of whom react to your VR actions.
INTUITIVE COMBAT USING REAL-WORLD ACTIONS
Engage in realistic combat moves as you use your hands to block, parry, counterattack, and duel a variety of enemies. A wide range of weapons including bow and arrows, the Hidden Blade, swords, tomahawk, throwing knives, crossbow, and smoke bombs attach to your full-body avatar. Distract enemies by throwing objects found in the environment or use the comprehensive stealth system to evade them.
