‘Assassin’s Creed Rebellion’ is a mobile strategy game with your favorite killers

Assassin's Creed Rebellion - Teaser
With murders, betrayals, and conflict being core pillars of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, “cute” probably is not the first word that comes to mind when describing it. But no one told that to Ubisoft and developer Behaviour Interactive, as Assassin’s Creed Rebellion adds an extra dose of adorable to the blood-spilling series.

Taking place in the 15th century, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion is a strategy role-playing game launching on both iOS and Android devices. Players must build up their own assassin brotherhood and manage a fortress — think Fallout Shelter but with even more killing — and they will be able to recruit more than 40 different assassins, including Ezio from Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations. Aguilar, whose story in the film Assassin’s Creed takes place during roughly the same time period, will also be available as a recruit.

“Set in Spain during the height of the Inquisition, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion lets you build out your Brotherhood HQ with new rooms that enable you to train your Assassins and craft new items and equipment,” Ubisoft said in the announcement. “As you level up your Brotherhood, additional rooms and other content become available, opening up new upgrade options.”

Rebellion‘s base-building interface bears quite a resemblance to Fallout Shelter, but it separates itself from Bethesda’s game by emphasizing missions that take place outside the headquarters. Assassins can take part in infiltration missions to gather resources, and completing story missions will unlock additional assassins to recruit. Other recruitable characters include Claudia Auditore da Firenze and Machiavelli, along with “more than 20” characters created exclusively for Rebellion.

Of course, Rebellion is not the only Assassin’s Creed game in the works. Much of the team behind Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag spent the last few years completely retooling the game, with major changes to combat, traversal, and character progression. The result is Assassin’s Creed Origins, which launches this October. It will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and will make use of the Xbox One X’s increased power.

No release date has been given for Assassin’s Creed Rebellion, but the game will arrive on Android platforms as well as iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Ubisoft on Thursday announced that it delayed "a smaller unannounced premium game" to next year along with Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. It turns out that the premium game in question is Assassin's Creed Rift, and it has been delayed to spring 2023, Bloomberg confirmed on Friday.

An unnamed source familiar with Ubisoft's plans told Bloomberg's Jason Schreier that the game publisher's office in Bordeaux, France, which is heading the project, asked for more time to develop and polish Assassin's Creed Rift because it was falling behind in terms of the development schedule. The spring 2023 release window means that it could come out anywhere between March and June of next year. Ubisoft said in a press release that it would release the game in fiscal year 2023-24.

The Assassin's Creed franchise has become an integral part of video game culture. With 12 major titles under their belt, Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec have been expanding the ever-so-secret society of Assassins on a relatively yearly basis. Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was the biggest game yet, with over 100 hours of content between the base game and current DLCs, but Ubisoft is dreaming even bigger.

Assassin's Creed Infinity is starting to sound like the biggest game of all time, but news on the front has taken a backseat as of late. Ubisoft seems more focused on Skull and Bones, due out November 8, 2022.  That said, here's everything we know about Assassin's Creed Infinity, including release date, gameplay, multiplayer, and more.

While fans knew Assassin's Creed Liberation HD was included in this list that would lose online and DLC functionality, a message on its Steam page suggested that even players who owned the title would no longer be able to access the game at all after September 1.
