The game is the latest entry in the long running Ubisoft franchise and will offer gamers a mix of RPG, strategy and card battle features.

With an emphasis on customization and strategy, each player will be able to create and build a unique experience as they decide what kind of Assassin they want to be and which fan-favorite allies they want by their side.
The game is currently available in select countries under a “soft launch” plan, with the full release planned for later this summer. A previous mobile game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Pirates, was released in December. What do you think of this new and different entry in the series?
