Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR Revealed
The recent Ubisoft Forward showcase revealed various new Assassin’s Creed titles, one of which will be available for Meta Quest. According to Ubisoft Montreal Community Developer Clement Dagonneau, Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR will push the boundaries of VR and let players become the Assassin.
Play as the Three Legendary Assassins
In Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, players will step into the shoes of three legendary assassins: Ezio, Cassandra, and Connor. They will be ‘remembering’ new memories from each of these assassins and learning from the various skills like parkour, combat, and stealth. Although players in real life will only stay put in one place, it will feel like the whole body will move around just like what the assassins do in-game.
“Embody legendary Assassins in an all-new story built exclusively for VR,” reads the trailer’s description. “Parkour and climb freely across open maps as you decide how to achieve the objectives. Use real world motions with a variety of weapons as you fight reactive enemies. Maneuver stealthily by hiding in the shadows or blending in amongst civilians.
“Experience the rush of air assassinations and the daunting leap of faith. Innovative VR functionality provides the ultimate immersive experience with best-in-class comfort features to help with vertigo or fear of heights.”
Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR launches sometime in the holidays 2023. Only for Meta Quest.
