Let's see now, there's Assassin's Creed Memories, Assassin's Creed Unity, Assassin's Creed Rogue and the recently-announced Assassin's Creed Chronicles. That's not nearly enough Assassin's Creed. How about a new 3D action-adventure game for the iPad?


Available for free download today in the Australia and New Zealand iTunes App Stores, with a planned international release date of 2015 (via Impulse Gamer), Assassin's Creed Identity gives players the chance to create their own honorable killer type and send him (just guys at the moment) romping through Italy, merrily stabbing as they go.

I've fiddled with the game for a little bit this morning, being a fake New Zealander, and so far it's a 3D action-adventure game with rather touchy touchscreen controls. Tapping to run, tapping walls to climb, that sort of thing.


As your assassin levels up they'll get skill points, which when applied start a training timer. That timer can be sped up for Abstergo Credits, purchased with real money. Other for-money fare include encrypted items (can't say I like the sound of that) and premium outfits.

Assassin's Creed Identity has a ways to go before its 2015 release, so who knows how it'll wind up. For a closer look at the game in its current form, check out the video below, courtesy of TouchGameplay.
