The first gameplay trailer for Assassin's Creed Nexus VR reveals the release date as November 16.
Ubisoft first announced that it was working on a made-for-VR Assassin's Creed game three years ago during the 2020 Facebook Connect event, and it will ostensibly be exclusive to Meta Quest headsets.
Not much was known about Assassin's Creed Nexus VR until the first screenshots were shared in June, alongside a CGI trailer and basic gameplay description.
The gameplay trailer appeared unexpectedly on IGN today and we haven't seen it posted on Meta or Ubisoft channels yet. Meta's annual Connect conference takes place on Wednesday, which is where we had expected to hear more about Nexus VR.
As well as showing a release date of November 16, the trailer explains how you play as three different protagonists from past titles in three different settings: Kassandra in Ancient Greece (Assassin's Creed Odyssey), Ezio in Renaissance Venice (Assassin's Creed II), and Connor in the American Revolution (Assassin's Creed 3).
The trailer also depicts a range of gameplay mechanics; parkouring between buildings, firing a bow & arrow, throwing knives, cranking a wheel, pulling a book on a shelf to open a secret passage, rowing a boat, and jumping from heights to attack enemies from above.
Ubisoft previously confirmed the game features swords, tomahawk, bows, crossbow, throwing knives, and smoke bombs.
