Today, Ubisoft announced the start of the 15th anniversary celebrations for Assassin’s Creed. These celebrations are an opportunity for the teams to thank the fans for 15 extraordinary years of history and shared passion. For the months to come, players will discover surprises, collaborations, rewards, community activities, and more. On this occasion, Ubisoft wants their players to get the most out of all the Assassin’s Creed games, from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to the first Assassin’s Creed. These celebrations were launched with their community today through Ubisoft’s dedicated website and their live stream channels on Twitch and YouTube. The Assassin’s Creed teams hope the community will enjoy these celebrations and invite all the players to join them this September to unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed during a very special event.
Players have access to new free content in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla thanks to unprecedented Year 2 support, with the return of festivals, the Mastery Challenge Pack 2, the Armory feature, and new caves to explore this fall to solve the mystery of the Tombs of the Fallen. This summer, players will also be able to take part in Odin’s rogue-lite-inspired journey to the spectacular region of Niflheim with the new game mode, The Forgotten Saga, offering a fresh take on gameplay that is free to all Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players. One last surprise awaits fans at the end of the year as the Assassin’s Creed Teams will reveal the last episode of the story of Eivor as a free chapter for all players.
As players discovered a few days ago, Ubisoft is delighted to bring 60fps support for Assassin’s Creed Origins on both Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Players are now able to rediscover Ancient Egypt under the reign of Cleopatra in 60 fps and make the most of Bayek’s grandiose adventures. To celebrate this upgrade with players, Ubisoft will be hosting a free weekend for Assassin’s Creed Origins from June 16th to 20th. Players can pre-load Assassin’s Creed Origins starting today.
