Gamescom 2017: Assassin's Creed/Final Fantasy XV Crossover Announced

Adjust Comment Print

Players will be rewarded with a different Assassin's Creed inspired outfit called the Medjay Assassin's Robes, as well as unlocking new abilities for Noctis that will let him fight and explore like an assassin. It looks like the whole town is in on the gag, as the main metropolis of Lestallum is celebrating this most murderous of holidays. There are a few Easter Eggs leading up to this, like the Assassin's Creed symbol appearing in FFXV's CG trailer, and Umbra from Final Fantasy XV appearing in Assassin's Creed Origin's latest trailer. After watching it myself, I can honestly say that this is one of the weirdest collaborations I have ever seen.

Also, Noctis and his crew will be able to don robes worn by Assassin members and perform signature AC abilities like the Leap of Faith and sneak attacks with the hidden blade.

Apparently, the teasers for this collaboration was in place since the Final Fantasy XV trailer from last November, as well as in the Assassin's Creed Origins announcement trailer. The two development teams will be "paying homage to each other's gaming universes" as part of this new collaboration. The game director of Assassin's Creed: Origins, Ashraf Ismail, started that "we couldn't be more thrilled with the opportunity to pay homage to each other's work".

Following the big reveal, Square Enix teased that players who will be partaking in the limited time event DLC are getting rewards. And for those looking to secure a copy of the game before its packed October 27 release, check out IGN's Assassin's Creed Origins preorder guide.

What do you think - is this weirder or not as weird as that time Assassin's Creed crossed over with Metal Gear Solid to let Old Snake wear Altair's outfit and have Ezio run around in Raiden's cyborg body?

A collaboration between the "Assassin's Creed" and "Final Fantasy XV" teams was announced at the Gamescom 2017 this Thursday.
