Assassin’s Creed Identity sneaks onto mobile later this month.
Over the last 18 months we’ve seen the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles China, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India, and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Russia is imminent.
Just in case you were running out of people to assassinate, Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Identity will come to iOS on February 25, 2016. The game previously received a soft launch in Australia last year.
Despite our assassin’s fatigue the game looks surprisingly decent. For one thing it takes place during the Italian Renaissance, which for many is still considered the definitive Assassin’s Creed era. It features a range of story missions and side quests, and players can create their own Assassins from four individual classes: Berserker, Shadow Blade, Trickster and Thief.
It will be interesting to see how this game – which is so full-featured – compares to SquareEnix’s Go series which has received acclaim for bringing the Hitman and Tomb Raider franchises to mobile in such an elegant fashion.
Identity offers a variety of control interfaces, from virtual sticks or tap-to-move to full controller support, so let’s hope that at least one of those options provides an optimal experience.
Here’s the slightly embarrassing launch trailer.

Developed by Ubisoft’s Blue Byte studio, Assassin’s Creed Identity will be available on the App Store for £3.99, as yet there’s no word on an Android release.
