Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed Identity, the first action RPG for mobile platforms. It is an application developed by the Ubisoft Blue Byte studio and currently only available on iPhone and iPad in Australia and New Zealand. The idea is to do a test with the players in this area and then release the full game in 2015.

In Identity, players can customize their Assassin and tackle various missions in one of the most popular locations in the series: the Italian Renaissance. By using the Unity engine the game will be able to show 3D maps of places like Florence or the Colosseum. There will also be a dynamic crowd system, time and weather presets and real-time lighting.

The app should be available for free at this link: https://itunes.apple.com/app/assassins-creed-identity/id880971164?mt=8

Here are more screenshots that I took from my experience with the game. There’s a MONTREAL 2014 setting coming soon which confirms a modern day experience. For that, I’m glad.

This actually looks like a decent smartphone game. Not a fan of their choice of settings or aesthetics, but the graphics are neat.

I wish it was Android, though. Maybe next year is the year I'll switch to Apple. :nonchalance:

I said the same thing, at first. But this isn’t technically released yet. It’s still a beta only available for iTunes Australia and New Zealand, set for a worldwide release in 2015.

I agree about the setting. Why Renaissance Italy when it was already featured in 2 main games? Ezio’s trilogy is my No.1 but I think it would’ve been better if they made it an Ezio game set in a new, different setting than just re-using Italy with someone else.

Probably the most interesting thing it shows so far is the Helix system and the fact that coming soon is a Montreal setting which looks like a historical version.
EDIT: Sorry it looks like an MD Montreal.

Do we know when it's set? Is it pre/post Ezio's time in Florence?
I'm hoping it's not during...

The video had 1515 Florence and 1503 (I think) Monterrigioni.

RinoTheBouncer

It’s set after Ezio because the Villa Monteriggioni was damaged and apparently locked down. Some missions are set in 1549, others are in 1536..etc.

Have to admit, for a free iOS game this looks pretty decent.

Not gonna comment on what I think of the game, because people don't like negativity in the forums ;).


Anyway, it seems like Helix is some kind of general (persistent?) platform they will use for all their games moving forward? Maybe "MD" will be seperate to the historical part and accesed through Helix menus. And the Helox content may be updated constantly (connected to Initiates?) and connected througout the different games. Perhaps playing one game will give Helix bonuses in some other?

Would be cool imo as MD would become fully optional and targeted at the most hardcore fans.

I really hope we finally get a decent Spin off in mobiles. It is ridiculous how many bad products they have released...are those even profitable? I mean, I stopped playing Memories after 1 day...

I totally agree. I wonder when they’ll make a mobile game that is truly entertaining. This one is good, so far. I hope they make it last. Memories kinda lost me after a few play throughs. I’m totally ok with them charging me for these games as long as they’re something of high quality.

Why do they keep having his Brotherhood outfit unlockable? That's like my least favorite of his outfits, why not his AC2 or Revelations outfit for once?

I always loved the Altair Armor and the AC:R one. Much better than Brotherhood.

Looks pretty impressive for an mobile game I have to say. However because it's a mobile game, I do not care about this title at all.

If it turns out a decent little game, I may give it a shot. Also beware of microstransactions. They will be plentiful in this mobile game - as is the trend...

Open wold mobile game, impressed but from the video also made the lose interest. Nothing but random Assassins, assassinating random people, no main character etc... Still courious about MD.

At least its free, most of these mobile games don't really do much to give information on the overall universe anyway.

A massive step forward from their previous iOS games.

Honestly I'm proud of the team who made this.

Now if only they could incoorperate a narrative w/ cutscenes.

It wouldn't have an identity without those.

JustPlainQuirky
09-30-2014, 09:56 PM
Well from what I can gather there are no cutscenes or coherent narrative aside from what the textboxes tell you so...

That's something Ubi Mobile needs to work on.

But would they really waste good mocap on an iOS game?

On the otherhand it would give people at Ubi more opportunities.

But does it bring in profit? And I think that might be the deciding factor for them.

No, it does not.

Fatal-Feit
09-30-2014, 10:01 PM
Yes, it does.

It's Assassin's Creed on the go. And with the majority's favorite settings and characters.

(I would play the hell out of it if I could)

This is a total waste of resources.

Instead of making a creative, fun and original mobile game, they keep sucking on Assassin's Creed. I'm pretty sure a Rayman on Mobile would sell ten times more than this really cheap looking 'game'. I mean, Mobile Gaming isn't made for big franchise, if someone wants to play AC, why on Earth would he use a mess like this one. I have no problem with mobile games, I love them, they are great, when they are legit.

What I see is simply an cash-grab, nothing else. I get the gadget app for the maps and inventory, but Mobile AC Game ? What is the point ? Most people who will maybe get interested in it are ALREADY buying the game on consoles/ PC. So again, what is the point ? (and nobody come talking about gameplay extension, don't **** me playing AC Pirates felt like an extension of Black Flag).

They should release low-profit games like Rayman, Child of Light, Valiant Hearts, games that are technically adapted to Mobile Gaming (low resources to run, easy commands) but that will also give value to the licence and therefore expand their profits. Just make a normal mobile game already !

I'm surprised it's actually a 3D game. I didn't think it looked that fun though. I didn't really see any reason to stick around. If it comes to Android I'll be happy. That tweet brings my hopes up. It'd be cool to have good AC experiences no matter where you play but I don't know if that will happen with this game.

It's fun but a little annoying on iphone because of the small screen. Every time I try to move the camera I end up running somewhere. Also to get from building to building your assassin will often jump down, run across the road, and then climb back up again.

I agree. It’s equally annoying on the iPad. You can’t look around unless you’re walking. It feels like everything happens by chance not by commands from the Player.
