Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, the first AAA VR title of the franchise that allows players to embody master assassins and physically perform their iconic actions in first person, will release on November 16th, 2023 on the Meta Quest Platform, which includes the Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3 and Meta Quest Pro for 39.99€.
The new trailer unveils Abstergo’s sinister scheme to manipulate people’s beliefs, using ancient technology. To defend Free Will, players will embark on a journey through the newly discovered memories of three master assassins from three different eras, each of them featuring their very own set of weapons for a unique gameplay experience with each one. They will join Connor in the midst of the American Revolution, blend into the crowds, and dispatch foes with a powerful tomahawk throw. Players will also be able to embrace Kassandra's world in Ancient Greece, draw her bow, and perform the iconic leap of faith from historic monuments. Lastly, they will employ Ezio's stealthy hidden blades to discreetly eliminate their enemies in the backdrop of the Italian Renaissance, and uncover the secrets concealed in their memories. Players will have to navigate Abstergo’s scheme as an undercover hacker, hired by their cyber-security leader, an ambitious and bright woman named Dominika Wilk, whose methods tend to be quite unorthodox. This new character in the AC lore is played by renowned actress Morena Baccarin.

With development led by Ubisoft Red Storm*, Assassin’s Creed Nexus is the very first installment allowing players to play a master Assassin in first person. Players will choose how to achieve their objectives as they make their way through open maps and use their hands to block, parry, counterattack, and duel a variety of enemies. Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is a full-length Assassin’s Creed game that features all of the iconic gameplay from the series, including parkour, combat, stealth and the dazzling leap of faith, all with an entirely new story, only available in VR.
Players will get to immerse themselves in the action with weapons including bow and arrows, swords, throwing knives, the tomahawk, the crossbow, the Hidden Blade, and bombs. They will explore iconic historical cities including Venice, Athens and Colonial Boston. Each environment features 360-degree navigation, allowing them to climb and parkour freely as they meet civilians and historical figures, all of whom react to the player’s VR actions. They will feel the tension of stealth as they sneak up on a target from behind or surprise them with an air assassination. They can blend into a crowd or distract enemies with objects in the environment.
Years of development have led to Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR featuring a comprehensive suite of comfort features in order to accommodate players of all types with VR sensitivity.
