If you play Assassins Creed on consoles and PC and are looking to invest in the Vita version and still want more, then you’re in luck, as Assassin’s Creed Utopia will be its making way to mobile devices, with Ubisoft and Japanese social networking service GREE developing the project. The game is set to launch later this year and will be the newest entry in the Assassin’s Creed mobile series.
Assassin’s Creed Utopia is set sometime around the 16th century and will focus on early American settlers, keeping the American feel of the big brother console title, though the story lines are not connected. Players are given the task of building their own “Assassin’s Creed utopian colonial city”, producer Andreane Meunier revealed to Pocket Gamer. He went on to say:
We’re working together to make a unique experience on mobile that’s not going to be just ‘casual’, but that can also be related to more ‘hardcore’ brands…what we’ve been looking at is to have a true Assassin’s Creed experience, to make sure the fans and those that know and love the brand really recognize the Assassin’s Creed touch.
Some concept art was released with the announcement and shows two assassins watching over a colonial town being built, like Meunier previously described. No word on how the gameplay will pan out, but it’s promised that GREE will include their trademark social inclinations into the game, with Meunier promising the game won’t abandon the franchises’ “hardcore” roots, we will just have to wait and see what the duo of developers come up with.
