Assassin's Creed Identity Comes to Android as New Big Update Released
Action-RPG comes to a new platform and gets a big update.
Big news today for Assassin's Creed Identity, as Ubisoft has launched the game on Android and released a big update. Identity was released for iOS devices in February; it costs $5 on both iOS and Android.
One thing to note about the Android version is that it requires the Jelly Bean 4.1 update or newer.
As for the update, it's called Forlì, and introduces a new campaign called A Crimson Sunset. Here is the official description for the update:
"Players can explore a map from Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood in two different settings, Dusk and Siege. Additionally, four brand-new story missions are included in the update as well as a completely new type of contract mission, Crow Hunt."
What's more, Ubisoft says the update improves Identity's daily challenges and adds more item packs and outfits. It also adds Weibo and Uplay support, which allows you to play across devices.
The Forlì update costs $2. Check out the video above to see it in action.
Identity, which soft-launched back in September 2014, is billed by Ubisoft as the first Assassin's Creed action-RPG for mobile devices (but not the first Assassin's Creed mobile game). You create and customize Assassin characters (classes include Berserker, Shadow Blade, Trickster, and Thief) and then send them to battle in Renaissance Italy, the setting of Assassin's Creed II.
You can control the Assassin characters either with virtual analogue sticks or tap-to-move instructions. Additionally, Identity supports gamepads.
As for the mainline Assassin's Creed series, there won't be a new game this year. However, fans of the franchise can see the Michael Fassbender-staring Assassin's Creed movie in December.
