‘Assassin’s Creed Identity’ Is Coming February 25th, Isn’t Free-To-Play Anymore

They say good things come to those who wait. Let’s hope that’s the case with the perennially upcoming, highly anticipated, but never quite releasing mobile-exclusive Action-RPG, Assassin’s Creed Identity.

After a seemingly never-ending soft launch phase of almost 2 years(!) on the Australian and New Zealand App Stores, Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Identity will be available globally on February 25th, priced at $4.99. Finally! I was beginning to wonder if a non-beta version of the game would ever see the light of day. Also, wasn’t it heavily rumored that this was going to be free-to-play? I don’t know about you, but I for one am really happy Ubisoft decided not to go down that route in the end.

Anyway, Assassin’s Creed Identity is definitely happening at long last, folks. It’s got an official blurb and launch trailer and everything.

Assassin’s Creed Identity challenges players to solve The Mystery of The Crows through a combination of thrilling story missions and countless quests. Players will create and customize their own Assassins and take them through numerous adventures in iconic settings from the Italian Renaissance such as Santa Croce area in Firenze or the Colosseum area in Roma. The Assassins will evolve throughout the game and progress from a novice to a master assassin. Characters can be chosen from four individual classes: Berserker, Shadow Blade, Trickster and Thief.

The above trailer is more of a teaser and doesn’t show off much in-game footage, but there are some pretty interesting gameplay videos (of the soft launch version) floating around on YouTube. Our old buddy Touchgameplay’s is particularly good.
