Ubisoft has just announced that the animus is going portable. Assassin’s Creed Rebellion is coming to iOS and Android devices. The free-to-play strategy RPG promises players the chance to control some of their favourite assassins from the series.
Set during the height of the Spanish Inquisition, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion will let players create their own assassin brotherhood, manage a fortress, and take part in missions against the Templars. Bringing a roster with more than 40 different assassins from Assassin’s Creed lore, players will get to recruit some of their favourite faces such as Ezio, Aguilar, and Shao Jun alongside more than 20 new unlockable assassins created exclusively for Assassin’s Creed Rebellion. Players will get to play with these assassins thanks to a new animus that merges the memories of several assassins together.
In your Brotherhood HQ you can build new rooms that will allow you to train your assassins and craft new items for them. As you level up in the game, you will be able to create new rooms and gain access to other content. You can catch glimpses of the base along with gameplay snippets in the trailer below.
Your HQ is also the base from where you can send out teams of three assassins to undertake missions against the Templars. Different assassins have different skills and work better with other assassins on a variety of missions so how you choose to develop your assassins will change how you play the game. The types of missions you run will also change how you develop your assassins. Standard missions provide you with resources that you need to upgrade your assassins while loot missions will provide you with the materials you need for crafting. New assassins can also be unlocked by playing story or legacy missions and finding the assassin’s DNA fragments within those missions.
Being developed in collaboration with Behaviour Interactive Studio, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion looks to be releasing worldwide on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android platforms.
