Apple iPad and iPhone users will be thrilled to know that Ubisoft finally released the Assassin’s Creed Identity for iOS worldwide. The release comes after the highly anticipated release earlier this February. According to reports, Android users should also have access to the game soon.
Assassin’s Creed has been a popular franchise for quite some time now. The role-playing game became particularly popular as it allows people to create, tailor and play Assassins set within the Italian Renaissance. The game also offers quests and story missions in several locations like the Coliseum, Florence and other key locations during the said period. Additionally, the game also comes with three types of assassins, several customization options and open sandbox levels.
According to MacRumors, Ubisoft also now allows full freedom of movement in the game – a first for the franchise. This means players can choose to jump, climb and run throughout the game as they discover locations and complete quests.
Although the Assassin’s Creed franchise has been available in several mobile editions already, Identity happens to be the first of the franchise intended for mobile that seeks to deliver the same experience as with PC and console games. The release has met quite a few bumps along the road before it pushed through. The game is compatible for iPad 3, iPhone 5 and newer devices that run on iOS 7.0 or later.
Android users need not feel disappointed as Android Authority reported that the game will also available for the platform around Spring. The game is available on the iOS App Store for $4.99 and experts assume that Android should apply the same pricing structure. Ubisoft has not given the specifics of the Assassin’s Creed Identity release of Android other than it will be “sometime in Spring.” Users are advised to stay tune for official announcements in the coming weeks.
