Assassin’s Creed Identity Gets A Soft Launch on iPhone and iPad in Australia and New Zealand
Too. Many. Assassin’s. Creed. Games.
So, you know how there are already three Assassin’s Creed games releasing this year? Assassin’s Creed Unity for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Assassin’s Creed Rogue for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and Assassin’s Creed Memories for iOS devices? Well, here’s a fourth one to look at- Assassin’s Creed Identity, another iOS Assassin’s Creed game, has just received a stealth, ‘soft’ launch in Australia and New Zealand.
Ubisoft will be using the feedback it gets from the players in this region and take it into account for the release of the final game in the rest of the world, which is slated for some time in 2015. So… yeah, Australian and New Zealander guys… congratulations, you all are guinea pigs, although Ubisoft is doing its best to spin it into something that sounds less offensive.
“This soft launch is an important step in the development process for Assassin’s Creed Identity,” said Cyril Voiron, Head of Mobile developments at Blue Byte, a Ubisoft studio. “We’re looking forward to receiving feedback on the game from players in Australia and New Zealand, and think that by leveraging Unity engine, along with assets from previous Assassin’s Creed console titles, Assassin’s Creed Identity will deliver an authentic Assassin’s Creed experience on mobile devices.”
Well… at the very least you all get to play the game before the rest of the world. Let us know if it’s any good, Australian gamers. You can get it on the App Store for free.
