Ubisoft is launching an Assassin’s Creed VR experience this year based on the upcoming film.
The news was announced via Ubisoft’s official Twitter:
The Assassin’s Creed movie, starring Michael Fassbender, is set for release this Christmas, and the VR experience will include scenes shot alongside the blockbuster.
The VR title was announced at GDC, and is being made by Fox and Practical Magic. During the announcement, Practical Magic boss Matthew Lewis pointed out this is “not a game” (quotes via Eurogamer). There was no release date nor platforms revealed for Assassin’s Creed VR. Hopefully the experience will include some first-person diving into haystacks and plenty of parkour.
