Recreating the Essence of Assassin’s Creed in VR
One of the core pillars of the Assassin’s Creed franchise has always been the exhilarating parkour, fast movement, and thrilling stealth action. And with Nexus, players can expect nothing less. The game faithfully recreates the climbing, free running, and rooftop navigation that fans have come to love. From sprinting across rooftops to performing the iconic Leap of Faith, every movement feels natural and exhilarating in the virtual world.
Versatile Gameplay Options
But Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR goes beyond replicating familiar gameplay mechanics. It offers players the freedom to choose their own path through open environments, reminiscent of iconic locations such as Venice and Boston. Whether you prefer to take a stealthy approach, utilizing hiding spots and sneaking past enemies, or engage in high-speed action, the game accommodates your playstyle. The tactical sandboxes within the game provide 360 degrees of freedom, allowing players to decide how they want to tackle objectives and navigate the sprawling environments.
Prioritizes Comfort in VR with Meta Quest Exclusivity
Nexus VR will be exclusively available for Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest Pro, and Meta Quest 3, bringing the game to the popular Meta Quest virtual reality headsets. The Meta Quest series is known for its high-quality VR experiences, and by releasing exclusively for these platforms, Ubisoft aims to optimize the gameplay and fully leverage the capabilities of Meta Quest headsets. Whether players choose to enjoy the game in a room-scale, standing, stationary, or seated setup, Assassin’s Creed Nexus promises an immersive and enjoyable experience on the Meta Quest platform.
Consideration for VR Motion Sickness
Ubisoft has also prioritized player comfort in the development of Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR. Recognizing the concerns surrounding motion sickness in virtual reality, the game includes various comfort features. Teleportation, a standard VR feature, allows players to move around while avoiding motion sickness. The dynamic vignetting technique subtly blacks out peripheral vision when necessary, reducing motion sensitivity. Additionally, systems have been implemented to assist players who may experience fear of heights or vertigo, ensuring an enjoyable and comfortable experience for all players.
Realistic Hidden Blade Mechanics
Nexus not only brings back beloved characters but also introduces new gameplay elements. Players will have the opportunity to wield the iconic Hidden Blade, deploying it with a flick of the wrist just as they would in real life. The attention to detail and tactile nature of the game mechanics make the experience truly immersive.
A Trio of Iconic Assassins
With its historical settings and interconnected narrative, Nexus offers a unique twist to the franchise. Players will embark on a time-bending adventure, exploring multiple eras through the eyes of Ezio, Connor, and Kassandra. As they solve a mystery that spans centuries, the modern-day story ties everything together, immersing players in an engaging and captivating journey.
As the holiday season approaches, anticipation for Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR continues to grow.
