In a brand new trailer for Meta Quest’s new Assassin’s Creed game, Ubisoft showcased what it will feel like to become an assassin. Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR will let you play as Ezio, and two other iconic assassins from the franchise. The Ubisoft Forward 2023 showcase demonstrated a quick trailer for this new VR game, alongside other exciting new titles.

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR allows you to play iconic assassins such as Ezio

Back in 2022, a few new Assassin’s Creed games were revealed, such as this one. Although the trailer did not include real gameplay, the CGI scenes showcased who you will be able to play as. You can become three assassins, who are Ezio, Kassandra, and Connor. Each are from their own Assassin’s Creed game, but each have their own missions in the new Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR.

Releasing on the Meta Quest, there will be plenty of features in Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR. This will be a story game with its own missions. Parkouring makes a return in first-person view, letting you explore historical sites and jump freely through open maps.

Not only that, but the trailer demonstrated how you can engage in combat. You can see Kassandra fight with her sword, while Ezio can jump from tall heights to jab his enemies. Choose to either fight stealthily, or head-on, depending on who you’re playing as. There will also be a variety of weapons at your disposal, such as swords, bows, throwing knives, tomahawks, and more.

No matter where you are, it seems like the places you’ll find yourself in are packed with NPCs, such as civilians and enemies. Meet historical figures, and interact with people in any way you like. Also, on Ubisoft’s website, they stress that anyone with motion sickness issues will be able to turn on certain comfort settings. If you have a Meta Quest, but are worried that the parkouring and falling from tall buildings will make you queasy, there will be ways to mitigate that.

You can wishlist Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR right now on your Meta Quest, although there is no release date yet.
