Ubisoft released a new Gameplay Overview sharing how the development team took the fifteen-year-old franchise to a new level of immersion with Assassin’s Creed Nexus in Virtual Reality, exclusively on Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3 and Meta Quest Pro.

For the first time in the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, players will be able to embody in First Person three different assassins, across three different time periods and physically perform Iconic Assassin’s Creed Actions, like wielding the Hidden Blade, exploring the cities from above with parkour, engaging in combat and mastering stealth. In Assassin’s Creed Nexus, the player is an elite hacker undercover for the Brotherhood and working for Abstergo. They will delve into the memories of three iconic assassins -Ezio, Connor and Kassandra- who have crossed paths with the artifacts Abstergo seeks.

The development team gave extraordinary attention to detail in parkour mechanics, crafting large open-urban environments, called open-maps, that truly come to life in VR. Players will be able to traverse them intuitively with a sense of freedom and realism like never before in the series.

Stealth is at the center of the Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR experience, allowing players to physically sneak around or use social stealth to blend in and tail a target without being detected. The interactive environment presents endless opportunities to create unique infiltration scenarios. To distract guards, players can make use of the whistling feature, or use throwable objects to manipulate their surroundings and outmaneuver their enemies with finesse, by performing intuitive physical actions with the Meta Quest controllers.

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR also introduces innovative physical gestures for blocking, parrying, and executing takedowns, providing an engaging and empowering combat system, with specific sets of weaponry for each Assassin’s arsenal. Whether you prefer to throw Connor’s tomahawk at enemies, draw Kassandra’s bow mid-air, or perform thrilling air assassinations with Ezio’s hidden blades, the options are yours to explore.

Years of development have led to Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR featuring a comprehensive suite of comfort features in order to accommodate players of all types with VR sensitivity and make locomotion in the world comfortable. Players can remove partial or complete locomotion through space, use the Fear of Heights feature to reduce vertigo, and many more options that are fully customizable to meet the player’s needs.

 

 

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is the first AAA VR title of the franchise that allows players to embody three master assassins and physically perform their iconic actions in first person. The game will be released on November 16, 2023 on the Meta Quest Platform, which includes the Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3 and Meta Quest Pro.

With development led by Ubisoft Red Storm, Assassin’s Creed Nexus will let players choose how to achieve their objectives as they make their way through open maps and use their hands to block, parry, counterattack, and duel a variety of enemies. Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is a full-length Assassin’s Creed game that features all the iconic gameplay from the series, including parkour, combat, stealth and the dazzling leap of faith, all with an entirely new story, only available in VR.
