From Press Release:
SAN FRANCISCO — June 14, 2022 — Today, Ubisoft announced the start of their 15th anniversary celebrations for Assassin’s Creed. These celebrations are an opportunity for the teams to thank the fans for 15 extraordinary years of history and shared passion. For the months to come, players will discover surprises, collaborations, rewards, community activities and more.
On this occasion, we want our players to get the most out of all the Assassin’s Creed games, from Assassin’s Creed® Valhalla to the first Assassin’s Creed®. These celebrations were launched with our community today through our dedicated website, assassinscreed15.com, and our livestream on Twitch twitch.tv/ubisoft and YouTube https://youtu.be/7fqkMF2Jp6s. The Assassin’s Creed teams hope the community will enjoy these celebrations and invite all players to join them this September as they unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed during a very special event.
Players have access to new free content in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla thanks to unprecedented Year 2 support, with the return of festivals, the Mastery Challenge Pack 2, and the Armory feature, as well as new caves to explore this fall to solve the mystery of the Tombs of the Fallen. This summer, players will also be able to take part in Odin’s rogue-lite–inspired journey to the spectacular region of Niflheim with the new game mode, The Forgotten Saga, offering a fresh take on gameplay that’s free to all Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players. One last surprise awaits fans at the end of the year as the Assassin’s Creed teams will reveal the last episode of the story of Eivor as a free chapter for all players.
As players discovered a few days ago, we are delighted to bring 60 fps support for Assassin’s Creed Origins on both Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation®5. Players are now able to rediscover Ancient Egypt under the reign of Cleopatra in 60 fps and make the most of Bayek’s grandiose adventures. To celebrate this upgrade with all our players, we will be hosting a free weekend for Assassin’s Creed Origins from June 16 through June 20. Players can pre-load Assassin’s Creed Origins starting today: freeweekend.ubisoft.com/assassins-creed-origins.
For five years now, the teams’ passion for making history more available to a larger audience has given life to three opuses of the Discovery Tour franchise. In the spirit of facilitating access to learning, we are happy to announce that Discovery Tour: Viking Age is now available as a stand-alone experience on consoles, Stadia* as well as PC: assassinscreed.com/discoverytour. We are also honored to be partnering with the Faculty of Education at McGill University to develop curriculum guides for teachers and students, available online for free, to help them make the most of Discovery Tour opuses as learning tools for the classroom: https://ubisoft.com/r/discovery-tour/curriculum-guide.
To celebrate the 15 years of Assassin’s Creed, a game will be featured each week, offering new content, rewards and interactive experiences for all our audiences on our dedicated website launching today: assassinscreed15.com. As a starter, several sets of Assassin’s Creed Origins tattoos along with a naval pack are now available in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
