As its name suggests, Assassin’s Creed Identity is part of the popular Assassin’s Creed franchise of historical action-adventure open-world stealth video games developed by Ubisoft. But it’s a decidedly special entry in the series as it’s touted as the first Assassin’s Creed action role-playing game and the first Assassin’s Creed mobile game to adopt the freedom-of-movement gameplay style of the main console titles in the franchise.
Action RPG with freedom of movement
The game lets you choose your assassins from four classes: the combat-oriented Berserker, the stealthy Shadow Blade, the jack-of-all-trades Trickster, and the agile Thief. You can then customize your assassins, by using your collected loot to equip them with different outfits and weapons, and upgrade them from novice to master.
As it boasts the freedom of movement previously available only on console, Assassin’s Creed Identity lets you freely run, jump, and climb as you take on quests and explore various locations inspired by the Italian Renaissance. It also allows you to play using dual virtual stick controls or an external gamepad.
And as it’s an Assassin’s Creed title, you can also expect to enjoy Ubisoft’s topnotch graphics, which employ custom-made HD textures, shaders, and models. Take a look:

Get Assassin’s Creed Identity now
Optimized for iPhone 5, iPad 3 and newer devices running iOS 7.0 or later, Assassin’s Creed Identity is out now on the App Store. It’s available for $4.99 with in-app purchases for coin and credit packs, not as a free-to-play download as with its soft-launch version.
Assassin’s Creed Identity was soft-launched on the App Store in Australia and New Zealand back in September 2014. Over a year had passed and Assassin’s Creed Identity still hadn’t made it to an official release, prompting speculation that the game had been placed on the back burner, especially when the game was pulled out of the App Store last January.
Fortunately, Ubisoft later announced that Assassin’s Creed Identity was definitely a go.
And so, go get Assassin’s Creed Identity now.
