Assassin's Creed Identity sneaks onto mobile devices later this month

The Assassin's Creed series looks to be taking its core gameplay ideas and applying them to mobile devices with the announcement of Assassin's Creed Identity, set to hit later in February.

With Ubisoft spreading the Assassin's Creed franchise as thin as it already has, a mobile version of the core AC experience was bound to happen at some point. And thus, Ubisoft has finally stepped forward and released a trailer for Assassin's Creed Identity, well over a year since it was first revealed by the publisher.

To help make this idea more enticing to the AC audience, Ubisoft is returning to Renaissance Italy, arguably the setting of the series at its absolute peak. The game is described as an action-RPG and will allow users to craft their own assassins. As hinted in the tweet above and explained by IGN, players will be able to choose from four different classes and engage in classic AC-style action through tapping movements or a gamepad.

AC Identity is set to release on February 25 and it should be noted that Ubisoft has seemingly changed its mind on the game being free-to-play. It will now go for $5 on the App Store, though it remains to be seen whether microtransactions will still be in place. Those looking for a different AC experience should also note that Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia is still in line to arrive next week. With so much AC action, no wonder Ubisoft is rumored to be taking a break from the core series.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
