UPDATE 12/19/22: More footage of Ubisoft’s supposedly undercover Assassin’s Creed Jade was posted to youtubethis time with a mixture of stealth and combat.
Gameplay is similar to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, with damage counts and nifty, souped-up Ultimate power moves. There’s plenty of rooftop parkour in the game’s villages and towns, and of course, you can hide in a haystack once again.
Locations spotted in new footage include the city of Yangzhou and the Great Wall of China. The game’s main theme music (another version of the series’ iconic Ezio’s Family) has also appeared youtube.
Where are all these leaks coming from? Jade seems to be available now for some beta testers who are dutifully uploading bits and pieces to the internet. There is still no word on an official release date..
ORIGINAL STORY 12/17/22: Playtest footage reportedly taken from Assassin’s Creed Jade has been leaked online.
Allegedly posted to an Assassin’s Creed Facebook page and then shared with Assassin’s Creed and Game leaks and rumours On Reddit, the footage – which runs for 2.40 minutes – appears to have been shot on an Apple mobile device and features a combat-heavy sequence that includes cutscenes and combat tutorials. You can view it here.
While it’s not the first time we’ve seen Jade – Ubisoft released a polished teaser earlier this year – it’s the first time we’ve seen raw footage like this (thanks, The player). As always, you can’t necessarily expect the final product to look and/or play like this – this is probably a very, very early version of the game – and as always if you’re interested you should probably check it out sooner rather than later out: These things have a habit of disappearing within a day or two.
Assassin’s Creed Jade is the first open-world game in the series for mobile devices. Set in ancient China, it allows you to park across the country’s entire Great Wall of China as a player-created character.
Also, two blockbuster Assassin’s Creed projects are currently in development; Codename Red is set in feudal Japan, while Codename Hexe appears to be inspired by European witchcraft. These games will be part of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Infinity project – and Ubisoft has now said a bit more about what Infinity will look like, which you can read about here.
Before all that, there’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage to look forward to next year, which we’ve got a lot more details on here too. You’re welcome.
