Event Log: Assassin's Creed Roleplaying Game Early Access Digital Event
Back in September, we were lucky enough to be invited to attend a digital event for the upcoming 'Assassin's Creed - Roleplaying Game' by CMON Games and Ubisoft, which is due for release October 2024.
Those who attended the event were given early access to the reveal trailer, and had the opportunity to ask the Dev Team questions about the project.
Immerse yourself in the legendary Assassin’s Creed© video game universe. Play across time from the modern day to the ancient world, experiencing different eras and interpreting characters belonging to cultures from every corner of the planet. The fight between the Assassin Brotherhood and the Templars is more than a battle of stealth and blades. It is a conflict between tyranny and free will that affects humanity itself.
Designed by Max Castellani and Andrea Macchi (Brancalonia, Inferno: Dante’s Guide to Hell), along with Francesco Nepitello (Lex Arcana, The One Ring), the Assassin’s Creed Roleplaying Game faithfully replicates the atmosphere and setting of the video game, in a cinematic experience that brings together a team of modern-day characters as they synchronize with their ancestors to unlock mysteries hidden in history itself.
I was blown away by the sheer amount of concept art which has been created for the project, which has so far been featured in the promotional campaign and the game itself. It really is incredible how the artists managed to create new concept art for older games such as Brotherhood and Liberation just for the game, whilst remaining faithful to the series.
Finally, I was equally as impressed by the team's dedication to player choice, incorporating a huge wealth of Assassin's Creed lore into the game which impact each and every playthrough.
''The Assassin's Creed Roleplaying Game is a game promoting strong narrative and creative solutions. The players are encouraged to approach any situation with action and stealth, but can also rely on their characters’ mental acumen or social ability. They will employ skills which are not only those of their modern-day characters, but also those that made their Ancestors famous.''
In particular, the dedication to Modern Day is admirable, after numerous games have stripped away its importance over time.
We were also sent a package containing an Altair figurine prototype!
