Ubisoft has a number of Assassin’s Creed games in the works, several of which are trying new things that the franchise hasn’t dabbled much with much in the past. Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, for instance, represents the series’ first foray into virtual reality, and the game is now available on Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3, and Meta Quest Pro headsets. Check out the launch trailer below, which offers a glimpse of what its stealth, combat, and parkour look like in VR.
Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR sees fan-favourite protagonists from past games returning to the limelight, and allows players to play through new memories in the lives of Ezio Auditore, Connor Kenway, and Kassandra. In the modern-day setting, you play as an elite hacker in the Assassins Brotherhood, who infiltrates Abstergo.
The game also boasts multiple open maps and free 360-degree movement, allowing freedom in exploration and navigation, while the combat is built around real-world motions for actions such as blocking, parrying, using your weapons, and more.
