The publisher calls the September announcement Assassin’s Creed Jade “a AAA RPG action-adventure game for mobile platforms” that is based in imperial China.
Videos like the ones included below are the latest in a string of leaks said to have come from the game’s alpha test, to which players had access allegedly until Ubisoft stopped taking sign-ups.
The player is entrusted with defending the village of Yongning from assaults, and one of the movies showcases the character creation procedure and the subsequent 15 minutes of action.
The setting for the second is the city of Yangzhou. It depicts the protagonist making a blind leap of faith before making a stealthy entry into the mansion of the district governor in order to retrieve and steal a permit. They leave the building and send their horse off with a whistle.
So far, Ubisoft has been tight-lipped on Jade. As of September, Ubisoft had announced a big strategic relationship with Chinese gaming giant Tencent, leading to speculation that the project was developed in tandem with Tencent.
Marc-Alexis Cote, vice president and executive producer of the Assassin’s Creed series, told VGC at the announcement of the game, “We’re going to have a team internally that’s working with our partner to make sure that the game stays true to what we want our Assassin’s Creed games to be.”
To provide the kind of service our fans expect, we are forming partnerships in areas where we lack in-house expertise.
There are six new Assassin’s Creed games in development, and Jade was one of them showcased at a Ubisoft event in September.
In 2023, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be released on consoles and computers. Red and Hexe are the codenames for the following flagship series entries after Mirage, both of which will be released as part of the Assassin’s Creed Infinity nexus.
Ubisoft Quebec, the same team developing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, is currently hard at work on a game called Red, which takes place in feudal Japan and is being directed by Odyssey’s original art director.
Then, in 2019, Hexe from Ubisoft Montreal will release, supposedly focusing on witch trials in the dying days of the Holy Roman Empire.
In addition to their collaboration with Netflix on the Assassin’s Creed mobile series, Ubisoft is developing a new Assassin’s Creed game that focuses on multiplayer.
