Assassin’s Creed Identity finally sneaks out stateside

Ubisoft has launched Assassin’s Creed Identity for iOS, the company announced in a press release. Developed by Ubisoft studio Blue Bye, the mobile game is available on the App Store for $4.99. You can see it in action above.

Assassin’s Creed Identity stands as the franchise’s first action-based role-playing game, in which customizable assassins take on missions throughout Renaissance-era Rome. Players can control their characters by tapping the touchscreen, with a virtual set of analog sticks or using an external gamepad.

Ubisoft soft-launched Identity in Australia and New Zealand back in the fall of 2014, a release that coincided with the announcement of a future worldwide launch. During this initial release period, the game was available as a free download with microtransactions.

Ubisoft confirmed on the Assassin’s Creed Identity Twitter account that an Android version was in the works, but no release date has been given for that version of the game. A post on the game’s Facebook page suggests the development team ran into unexpected roadblocks while working on the title, but confirms it remains in development. The Twitter also shows a steady stream of updates since the game’s soft launch, although it has remained mum on the game’s planned international release.
