Ubisoft may have given the Assassin’s Creed franchise a break in 2016 but it’s pushing it forcefully out of the hay bale this year with console title Assassin’s Creed: Origins and a newly announced mobile game, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion.
Assassin’s Creed Is Taking A Leap Of Faith Onto Mobile
Expanding headquarters will allow you to add more assassins and teach them new skills as well as craft new items and equipment. All of this will be essential as you’ll be able to then send teams of assassins out on a variety of missions, the success of which will be determined by strategic character skill combinations and how well-trained they are.
Successful missions will enable you to unlock new assassins to recruit as well as key items for upgrading and crafting.
Though the game has the highly specific setting of 15th century Spain, it’ll feature more than 40 characters from across the Assassin’s Creed universe including Ezio, Shao Jun, and Machiavelli. According to Ubisoft this is because there’s “a new version of the Animus that merges the memories of several Assassins together.”
Naturally, Origins will be Ubisoft’s big release for the franchise this year but if Rebellion manages to achieve similar success to Fallout’s mobile tie-in Fallout Shelter it could be a big money maker.
