Assassin's Creed Memories game revealed for iOS

Ubisoft to release mobile spin-off later this year

Ubisoft has revealed Assassin's Creed Memories, a card battle strategy RPG for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Coming in collaboration with GREE and PlayNext and due for release "soon", Assassin's Creed Memories is a free-to-play spin-off of the publisher's flagship adventure series that will have players travel through time building up an Assassin's guild by "recruiting famous allies".


Customization options will let you create an Assassin and choose from an array of allies to suit your strategy and take on a full single-player campaign. You will also be able to take your guild online and face off with other players in matches with teams of up to 20 players each side.

"With an array of different Assassins to play with, Assassin's Creed Memories will allow you to revisit familiar periods in time like Colonial America and Rennaissance Italy, as well as new and unexplored eras," says Ubisoft.

"The card battle genre has been hugely popular around the world and GREE and PlayNext have demonstrated their know-how and expertise on such games," commented Ubisoft Mobile Division managing director Jean Michel Detoc.

Only a single piece of artwork (pictured above) was released, and no specific release date was announced. The publisher is also yet to detail a micro-transaction structure or any other form of monetization.

Assassin's Creed Memories follows in the footsteps of the December 2013-released mobile spin-off Assassin's Creed Pirates, an adventure game that focused on the naval combat elements of recent games in the main AC series.
