Ubisoft has joined forces with Gree and PlayNext to deliver an all new free-to-play installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise: a CCG called Assassin’s Creed Memories.
Digital card-battling has been increasing in popularity recently. The genre’s ability to mix the card combat with RPG leveling and strategic elements have sucked players in, while the booster-pack IAPs have attracted publishers and developers.
Ubisoft seems to be planning to tap directly into this popularity, utilising its Assassin’s Creed franchise as the foundation.
Inviting you into a new mobile Animus, you have to travel through history with the aim of building a powerful guild, recruiting allies and defeating rival players along the way.
Memories allows you to revisit eras from the series - such as Colonial America - and gather familiar characters to aid you, including the charismatic Ezio. It also offers new time-periods that have remained untouched by the war between the Assassins and Templars.
The game offers a deep single-player campaign and a multiplayer mode that can support upto 20 vs 20 online players.
Assassin’s Creed Memories is currently in soft-launch in selected territories, with a global release planned for later this summer.
